monday october 22nd-
at 1:22am the sun in libra quincunxes retrograde chiron in pisces, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer planetoid. old wounds and pain arising right now can relate to our sense of self, our boundaries, our tendency to sacrifice ourselves or look to others to save us. both libra and pisces focus a lot on others and often at the expense of the self. a healthy sense of self is necessary for conscious relationships. in relationship issues right now look to see if you are being more of the codependent or more of the narcissist and then do the work to come back into right relationship with your ego!
the sun at 29 libra sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces at 4:16am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. sun/neptune is great for compassion, idealism and altruism but it’s not so good for seeing reality clearly and keeping healthy boundaries. if we tend to overgive or over-sacrifice ourselves this can be amplified right now! having a healthy sense of self so that we can be in and engage in healthy relationships key!
at 12:13pm mercury in scorpio sextiles pluto in capricorn, linking the mind in the sign of the Underworld with the planet that rules the Underworld! this is very deep astrology for penetrating conversations, insights and aha moments- as well as therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. anything that helps us get to the bottom of things is supported right now!
mercury in scorpio semisquares saturn in capricorn at 6:49pm, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. this can make for tense, serious and heavy communications or thinking. it’s important to be open to seeing reality, speaking Truth and seeing Truth in others or the world around you. don’t be controlling and rigid but do be willing to take your head out of the sand.
tuesday october 23rd-
the sun moves out of libra and into scorpio at 4:22am, shifting the conscious self and ego from air to water, intellect to emotion, harmony focused to getting into the shadows. the sun in scorpio is a very deep time of the year. in the northern hemisphere this sun sign takes us into the dark of the sun portal (the last solar gate of the year- with the next yearly sun cycle commencing with winter solstice). this is a time of death, loss, letting go and turning within. giving ourselves time for these inner processes is key in the coming months!
the sun in scorpio quincunxes retrograde juno in gemini at 6:17am, bringing focus to committed relationships and the agreements we have in them emotionally, sexually and financially. if we are avoiding facing shadow around these themes they can come to light during the full moon this week (building to tomorrow). power dynamics (shadow scorpio) and/or deception or avoidance of reality (shadow gemini) are not recommended right now.
the sun in scorpio opposes retrograde uranus in taurus at 5:47pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Great Awakener! venus, mercury and the sun are all opposing uranus this month! lots of upheaval, change and perhaps chaos playing out in our values, material attachments, relationships and that which we hold onto. if we are holding onto things that don’t serve our evolution anymore- this is a time to cut your losses. the more you hold on the more intense the month can be. let go to grow!
wednesday october 24th-
retrograde juno backtracks into taurus at 12:50am, bringing the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage into a venus-ruled sign she is quite comfortable in. juno in taurus values money, security, material things and stability in her relationships. yet she is retrograde and in an Underworld journey around relationships, finances and commitment right now. our willingness to question what we value and what is important to us is key right now.
pluto parallels the north node at 2:53am, aligning the Lord of the Underworld and the north node of destiny and evolution! powerful alignments of destiny and evolution are in process right now. pluto is all about transformation but often requires death of the old before the new can be born. the north node speaks to where our growth and evolution is but it’s not the easy growth- it’s where we are pushed out of the nest and asked to learn to fly while we are falling down! HUGE PUSHES for growth in process right now!!!! ‘evolve or repeat’ is a good mantra right now. which will you choose???
the sun parallels pluto at 4:37am, aligning the conscious self with the planet of evolution and transformation. with so much pluto/scorpio happening this week it’s time to TRANSFORM and EVOLVE. don’t miss out on the growth but holding onto things/people/beliefs/karmic patterns of the past!
at 5:52am retrograde venus in scorpio sextiles saturn in capricorn, aligning the Goddess in the Underworld with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn is lovely for getting serious and focused on what we are committed to and what we no longer are committed to and are ready to let go of. venus is in a deep journey right now- seeing what blocks her from self-love, self-value, abundance and having healthy relationships with others. saturn is the get real planet- he shows us what IS which can be a bit abrasive at times but he does so so we can have clear discernment about what is good for us and what is not. pay attention!
the sun in scorpio squares the nodes at 8:58am, bringing us to a cross roads on the path. will we keep on walking the path of karma- doing things over and over and over again? or we will find the power within ourselves to tread a new path?
the full moon at 1’13 taurus is exact at 9:45am PDT, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in libra on 10/8. that new moon was venus ruled and this full moon is in the other sign of venus conjunct uranus and opposite venus retrograde! big changes are happening with women, the Divine Feminine, relationships, finances, our values and more. this is a time of Great Awakening but it may be coming by way of chaos and endings that create space for the new. the key right now is in discerning what is the baby and what is the bathwater. don’t let go to soon but don’t hang on too long. both of them create karma. radical change we embrace right now- in Love, money, values and more- can be the solid foundations upon which we build into the future. for more info on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a couple days before the full moon is exact.
thursday october 25th-
at 8:18pm mercury in scorpio quincunxes retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. mercury/eris can be revealing in communication and thinking today! but the mars-rulership of both signs can also unearth some fire, aggression and combative energy in communication. navigate with care.
friday october 26th-
at 7:16am the sun cojoins retrograde venus at 3’06 scorpio- aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Love and beauty and commencing a new venus cycle (which is measured from sun/venus retrograde conjunction to sun/venus retrograde conjunction)! this is the midpoint of the current venus retrograde we are in- so pay attention to any revelations, aha moments or insights arising right now around Love, money, values, self worth and self Love. we are still in the Underworld but some big insights incoming can be super important to take note of and integrate in the remaining weeks of her journey. pay attention. with both bodies sextile saturn there is a deeply grounding energy present that we can use for mastery and success in our lives. show up to do the work and the rewards will be plentiful!
retrograde neptune in pisces sextiles vesta in capricorn at 8:30am, aligning the planet of mysticism with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. neptune/vesta is lovely for devotion, mystical experience and commitment to our ideals and visions. with the two spiritual signs (pisces as last sign of zodiac and capricorn as 1st sign of the solar cycle)- there is a deeply spiritual energy present today. our visions, intuition, psychic ability and capacity to see beyond the veil is strong right now. use the energy wisely.
saturday october 27th-
mars in aquarius semisextiles pluto in capricorn at 5:19pm, aligning the lower will with the Higher Will in powerful ways! mars/pluto helps us to get focused on what actions need to be taken and what is ready to be revolutionized in our personal and collective lives. with both bodies in saturn-ruled signs- this is a time to be masterful when we take action. one foot in front of the other- with long term awareness rather than short term benefit in focus.
at 7:52pm the sun in scorpio sextiles saturn in capricorn, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of karma and mastery! sun/saturn helps us to GET REAL- and both scorpio and capricorn help us get deeply committed to our own evolution, transformation and self mastery. on the 24th venus linked with saturn and today the sun does. pay attention to where you are getting more grounded, realistic and focused on WHAT IS in your life right now and the last few days. discernment is key.
ceres in libra opposes retrograde eris in aries at 8:19pm, carrying over the intensity ceres has been undergoing since entering libra (she makes tense aspects to ALL the planets except for jupiter!!!). ceres/eris brings up all that is not being looked at or address in home/family situations, in regards to our childhood or with children or mothers in our lives. this could also unearth stuff from our own childhood that needs to be addressed and resolved. if we are over focused on keeping the peace at any cost- this can be a time the boat is rocked! if we are willing to face the shadows and see what is going on beneath the surface this can be empowering and healing.
sunday october 28th-
mercury in scorpio parallels mars in aquarius at 10:09pm, echoing the mercury/mars square that was exact last week on 10/19. from the 19th to the 28th we have a super aspect between these two- amplifying and exacerbating their energy together. mercury/mars could manifest as being honest, direct and open- but it could also manifest as combative, argumentative energy that is divisive and selfish. sometimes things need to be said and acted on. other times it is our ego involved that wants to talk and act and doing so cuts us off from our Higher Self’s directives. think before you speak or act right now. think long term consequence not short term reward!
pluto aligns with his own karmic south node in capricorn today- making for a MASSIVE CALL to purge old karmic patterns that keep us stuck, stagnant and toxic- personally and collectively. the south node in capricorn speaks to where we are stuck, rigid, controlling, and operating in an old paradigm. capricorn represents the patriarchy, big business, government and all those paradigms that have been around forever that require we give away our power. pluto on the south node is ultimately a reclamation of our power but it likely comes by way of learning how to navigate power dynamics with others first OR by way of death to an old order that creates space for the new to be birthed. pluto is the great Roto Rooter of the zodiac. he comes in to clear out the stuck stagnant crap. this is a time to really honestly look at where we have been stuck in our own crap and karmic patterns and see if we are ready, willing and able to do the work to clear them out. from now until march pluto will be on his own south node and then the south node of the moon. the coming months are huge call to CLEAR KARMA. you either work to clear it or you entrench yourself in it even more and set some serious things into motion that you cannot undo in the not to distant future. pluto brings us lessons around power. do you give away your power and play the victim? do you lord your power over others and play the tyrant? the ultimate goal is coming into our center and stepping into our power in a way that comes from a deeply open heart with clear, healthy boundaries. heal your relationship with power so you can stand more in your power and authenticity right now. the planet needs your Higher Self embodied!
have a blessed week…
