I was surprised to realize that I began this astrological update a year ago — so this is the 12th edition. Hope you all had a good September.
October is going to be very quiet — no planetary changing of directions, no eclipses — sort of a regroup time. By the end of the month we will have three planets in Scorpio (Sun, Mercury, and Venus). Scorpio is a water sign so Cancer and Pisces folks will experience an easy flow of energy from these three planets. For the Aquarians, Taureans and Leos in the group, the impact will be somewhat more challenging — a call to growth. These planets will be exactly opposite Jupiter in Taurus so relationships and other people will have greater focus. This will also mean that we will need to bring things into balance (earthy things (Taurus) and deeply held feelings, resentments and understandings). Scorpio is a very deep sign – think still waters run deep or a duck crossing a pond with seeming ease — except you can’t see how frantically his feet are moving. There is nothing superficial about them. Scorpios are very perceptive and have a deep understanding of themselves and others, which can be somewhat unnerving. It’s very rare to fool a Scorp. In a deeper sense Scorpio is the sign of the battle between the personality and Higher Self and is ruled by Pluto the god of the Underworld in Greek mythology.
The full moon will occur on October 11 at 18 degrees Aries; new moon will occur on October 26 at 3 degrees Scorpio.
Have a great month!
