the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces at 3:34am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. with both bodies in water signs our empathy, intuition, psychic ability and sensitivity can be high. yet this is a tense aspect so it can exacerbate a desire to escape, check out, be too empathic without boundaries and easy to delude or deceive. since this occurs in the early morning hours pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from your Unconscious.

at 6:33pm mercury backtracks to 29 libra- shifting the mind from water to air, emotion to intellect, passionate to peace-seeking. mercury retrograde in libra focuses on thinking relationships, commitments and partnerships of all kinds. having talks about the past and dealing with the past is key.
retrograde mercury at 29’59 libra semisextiles venus at 29’59 virgo at 6:37pm, linking the mind and the heart at the karmic completion degree. we have both mercury and venus moving into libra- but in opposite directions as mercury is retrograde moving backwards into libra from the last degree while venus is moving forwards into libra from the 1st degree. an alignment of mind and heart are possible right now and we are supported in sharing what we think and what we feel. just like any other planet that moves through libra- venus will be heading into some pretty intense aspects in the coming weeks. she will oppose chiron, quincunx uranus, quincunx neptune, square jupiter/saturn/pluto and oppose eris. she will tensely aspects all the outer planets- while mercury will station direct in a double square aspect to saturn end of this week into next week. the libra part of our charts is getting activated and exposed so be sure to listen to the weekly horoscopes (up around noon PDT monday) for more information on how this plays out for you this week <3
at 6:41pm venus moves out of virgo and into libra, shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty into the sign she rules. venus in libra values relationship, partnership, marriage, commitment and collaboration. her mantra is WE- and she tends to think of herself in relationship to others. the gift of venus in libra is peace, beauty and harmony- but with her heading into very intense aspects it can be important that we acknowledge where things are not peaceful, not beautiful and not in harmony (in dissonance instead). libra does not like to rock the boat- but in the coming weeks the boat is going to be rocked! can you find your center? can you be committed to the Truth rather than to surface projections of peace and harmony? the balance that is most important is the balance you have within. work on cultivating it in deeper ways the rest of the month and into next month.

at 2:32pm the sun in scorpio quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer. old wounds and pain around our sense of self, identity, individuality and more can arise right now. both bodies are in mars ruled signs- which are primal, powerful and forceful. chiron can be showing us where we overdo the yang/masculine energy in combative, selfish ways OR where we hold ourselves back from taking action and doing what we need to do in life. tune into where you are being challenged to grow and get to it!
thursday october 29th-
at 8:54pm the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates the north node in gemini, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the node of destiny and evolution. the sun in scorpio wants to get deep, see beneath the surface and face the shadow. the north node in gemini reminds us we also have to be able be light, open minded and curious in order to find the Truth. if we are too black and white or too focused on power and control it can sideline us.
friday october 30th-
there are no major aspects today. we have the moon in fiery aries the first 14 or so hours and in the morning the moon triggers the mecrury/saturn square we are about to have 2 of because of mercury stationing direct next week. pay attention to what is going on in communication, information and the media this morning! we have uranus perigee at 10:22pm with the sun/uranus opposition happening tomorrow just over an hour after the full moon conjunct uranus!!! the Rebel, Revolutionary and Agent of Change dominates this weekend. things that happen this weekend can be topsy turvy, sudden, unexpected, chaotic and shocking. embrace change and open up to revelation to make the most of this ungrounded astrology <3

the full moon at 8’38 taurus is exact at 7:49am – marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in libra opposite eris and square pluto on october 16th. this is one rocky lunar cycle- upsetting the apple cart and bringing shadow to Light. the full moon is conjunct uranus- so the Rebel, Revolutionary and planet of upheaval is strong right now. emotions are wild and chaotic and a good mantra right now is ‘expect the unexpected’! in love and money situations change is the air! it could be positive change or seemingly not so positive- but the key is to embrace change. for more info on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact. this is a calendric blue moon due to being the 2nd full moon in october. it is not an astrological blue moon though- as that only happens when we have two full moons in the same sign. it’s also not a seasonal blue moon as that occurs when we have 4 (instead of 3) full moons in a season with the 3rd of 4 being termed a blue moon. the next seasonal blue moon is not until august 2021. since our calendar is a more modern convention the calendric blue moon is the last significant- but it’s still fun particularly because it is on halloween!
at 8:53am the sun in scorpio opposes retrograde uranus in taurus, 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!
sunday november 1st-
retrograde mercury in libra squares saturn in capricorn at 11:06am, creating tension and friction between the mind and intellect that wants harmony and peace and the Lord of Karma that wants us to get real and see/deal with reality. this is the 2nd of 3 mercury/saturn squares with the 3rd and final occurring 11/6 due to mercury’s station on 11/3. we essentially have one VERY LONG and intense mercury/saturn square form 11/1-11/6. think back to 9/23 when the first of these squares happened and connect the dots to what is going on right now- there is a relationship. mercury/saturn can be great for having serious, grounded communications but it can also tend itself to depression, pessimism and negative thinking. only seeing what is wrong and not seeing what is right OR going to the other extreme where we are only focusing on the positive and ignoring the shadow is to be avoided right now! mercury in libra wants peace and harmony but if we are sweeping things under the carpet so as to avoid the shadow this can be exposed right now. watch out for power struggles, dogma and rigidity of mind and pay attention to what is happening in the media and politics (USA election day incoming!). also pay attention to the things you say, hear or think right now. they can be heavy but also revealing of reality.
venus in libra opposes retrograde chiron in aries at 11:55am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. venus/chiron can bring up some big time old wounds and pain in relationships and in regards to our self-worth and self-love. venus in libra can be over focused on others and what they are doing and how they value us- and the healing happens when she stops looking outside and instead looks within. with the libra/aries polarity- we all want to find balance between our yin and yang, our feminine and masculine. if we are sweeping our anger/will/drive under the carpet and pretending everything is all nice-nice- this kind of aspect will bring up and out what has been swept under the carpet. on the other hand if we are overly aggressive and self-focused the course correction here is to start thinking of others before the self. this is the beginning of venus in libra’s very intense aspects – she will oppose chiron, quincunx uranus, quincunx neptune, square jupiter/saturn/pluto and oppose eris in the coming weeks- rocking the boat in relationships and also in the libra area of our chart (so listen to horoscopes- to sign up to be a member to access horoscopes, gate calls and more click here- https://divineharmony.com/become-a-member/
