monday october 5th-
venus in virgo sesquiquadrates jupiter in capricorn at 7:54am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty who values health, service and humility and the planet of expansion but also excess. this week venus in virgo tensely triggers the whole capricorn confluence (jupiter, saturn, pluto) and the aries activation (mars retrograde, chiron, eris)- bringing things up in relationships, finances, health, work and more (venus is in virgo after all). watch out for being too perfectionist, controlling or restrictive- with yourself or others. with the aries activations later in the week a lot of repressed anger and rage can come up. having healthy outlets for this is key.
vesta in leo sextiles the mean north node in gemini at 11:23am while retrograde mars in aries trines vesta in leo at 5:57pm (mars/NN is tomorrow morning)- linking the Priestess asteroid of focus and devotion with the will and drive (mars) and the node of destiny. vesta is showing us the path towards our evolution. mars is helping to inspire sacred action and deep focus. tomorrow mars links with the north node as well. what comes in as inspiration right now should be paid attention to. destiny is calling!
mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates the mean north node in gemini at 8:21pm, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect who wants to dive deep and KNOW THE TRUH and the north node in an air sign that wants to keep things light and stay curious and open. pay attention to conversations, information and revelations incoming. they can be illuminating.
tuesday october 6th-
a 5:49am mars in aries sextiles the mean north node in gemini and trines the mean south node in sagittarius, bringing an amazing alignment between the will and drive and the nodes of destiny and karma. we have the support of mars in completing karmic threads and moving into the future right now. taking action to finish things is key. our willingness to have an open mind and to let go of where we think we are right or the we know it all is key!
wednesday october 7th-
vesta in leo trines retrograde eris in aries at 12:15am, linking the Priestess asteroid Goddess with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. vesta is focused on creativity, leadership and self expression and eris adds some extra fire and activism to the mix. this is a time to follow your heart and passions and be willing to take a stand for Truth. as this occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious.
at 1:55pm mercury in scorpio opposes retrograde uranus in taurus, creating tension between the lower mind and the Higher Mind in sudden and unexpected ways! this is the first of 3 aspects like this due to mercury’s upcoming retrograde on 10/13. mercury/uranus can be revealing, liberating and freeing but it can also bring shocking and chaotic information, revelations, communications and more. staying open to the Higher Mind frequency is key. do not hold onto the old out of safety and security. the new wants to come in! also be aware there is a ungrounded energy present today- so be more aware when driving and moving about in the world. as the taurus/scorpio axis is highlighted there can be some sudden and unexpected news or energy playing out around money- which could be positive or could be negative (uranus is the planet of the unpredictable so it’s hard to tell which way things will go). opening up to new ideas of how to make money could be part of the process today!
thursday october 8th-
at 8:18am venus in virgo quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. old wounds and pain can arise today in relationships, in our finances and in our self-worth and self-love. venus in virgo is super humble but can also be hard on the self- expecting perfection. if we are stuffing our anger and not expressing it that can arise today. healing around our masculine is key to healing our feminine. we want them in Union and either of them out of balance creates inability for them to meet fully. inner work is key right now!
at 11:08pm venus in virgo sesquiquadrates pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. from late tonight until saturday morning venus triggers the pluto/eris square. venus/pluto can bring up a lot of intensity, shadow, passion, jealousy, fear and obsession. dealing with what is coming up in relationships, finances, health or work situations and more is key.
friday october 9th-
venus in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde mars in aries at 12:38am, creating a minor aspect of tension between the Divine Lovers. venus in virgo values humility, reserved behavior, organization and efficiency. mars in aries values passion, expression, directness and putting the self first. issues in relationships cropping up right now can show us where we need better balance within or without.
at 6:09am retrograde mars in aries squares stationary direct pluto in capricorn, creating massive tension between the lower will and the Higher Will in explosive ways! this is the 2nd of 3 mars/pluto squares due to mars retrograde. the first was on 8/13 so think back to then and what was going on for you as there is a link to what is going on today. mars/pluto is a powerhouse of an aspect! we all would do well to make sure we are having our lower wills/egos working in service of something Higher- otherwise we could really get into trouble right now. mars in aries wants what he wants and he wants it NOW. in his pure energy he is pure action- but in his lower vibration he is ego going after his desires in the moment without thinking of the consequence of his actions. pluto in capricorn is a long term transit that is transforming existence as we know it by stripping away that which is toxic and bringing us into and through a death process (metaphoric but also perhaps literal) that precedes rebirth. we see this in patriarchal consciousness, in big business, in politics, in the government, in the financial arena, and on our beloved planet Mother Earth. we cannot just keep doing what we have always done- as not only will we keep getting what we have always got but we could actually destroy the planet in the process. this is a time of high passions but also high aggression and perhaps conflict. navigate with consciousness so that you are not entrenching yourself in more karma but are instead burning karma off and breaking free from the chains that bind.
saturday october 10th-
at 7:05am venus in virgo seesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. disruptive energies can arise right now in relationships, finances, health situations and/or work situations. venus in virgo likes things to be neat and organized but eris is disrupting an old order and bring up anger and rage that has been stuffed or suppressed. having healthy outlets for emotions so that they are not stuffed but also not expressed only mentally is key.
saturn in capricorn quincunxes vesta in leo at 9:01am, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and Father of Time and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. vesta in leo wants to shine and be seen! saturn in capricorn reigns in those energies and even squashes them. finding the right balance between self expression and healthy self restraint is important. watch out for repression and suppression- within the self and with others.
at 10:23am retrograde chiron in aries quincunxes juno in scorpio, creating tension between the Wounded Healer and the asteroid Goddess of paartersnhip and marriage. juno is in the midst of trigger the uranus/chiron semisexile- bringing up big stuff in partnerships (romantic, business, financial and more). old wounds and pain arising need to be navigated with thoughtfulness and care. this is not a time to be focused on the self at the expense of others- yet it’s also not a time to be so selfless that we are not able to access healthy selfishness and boundaries. mercury retrograde makes these same aspects 3 times- so pay attention to what is coming up today in the context of relationships, commitments and partnerships of all kinds. the conversation happening right now is a much longer one that will last throughout mercury retrograde (10/13-11/3)
venus in virgo trines retrograde uranus in taurus at 4:08pm, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener! over the next 3 days venus and mars will both link with uranus- bringing revolutionary energies into relationships and Inner and Outer Union. in relationships, finances, our self-worth and self-Love- we are being given great freedom, expansion and opportunities for growth! grounding down into our Truth and getting more embodied is supported right now. important relationships coming into your life or deepening right now can be very good for you! this week venus has made a lot of intense aspects- and this one today is the only positive/harmonious one. make the most of it!
sunday october 11th-
at 6:34am the sun in libra squares jupiter in capricorn, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. this is the beginning of the sun’s trigger of the capricorn confluence (Jupiter, saturn, pluto) and the later part of the aries activation (lilith, mars retrograde, eris). the sun in libra wants peace and harmony but all the tense aspects the sun is in the midst of is revealing what has been swept under the carpet and not addressed. find balance between peace-keeping and willingness to face and deal with the shadow- even if things get uncomfortable!
sun in libra quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces at 8:30am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves the ego boundaries. sun/neptune can be great for intuition, spirituality, compassion and altruism. yet where the sun wants to have a clear sense of self and boundaries- the sun in libra is other-focused and neptune’s quincunx amplifies the tendencies towards sacrificing the self. being willing to see where we need better boundaries and where tendencies to enabling, addiction, playing the victim or the martyr or spiritual bypassing are playing out is key right now! take time today to turn within via meditation, embodiment practices, dreamwork and more.
venus in virgo sesquiquadrates saturn in capricorn at 11:33am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn brings reality checks and cold hard Truths to Light in relationships, finances and more. this is a time to get serious and focused. of course too much of this can create rigidity, control and resistance to change. in material matters and matters of the hearts- we want to find the balancing point between staying committed/sticking it through and leaving what is no longer good for us and embracing change. discerning baby from bathwater takes discernment right now.
have a blessed week…
