This is a wonderful and intense month. During October, Mercury turns direct, as do Pluto and Saturn, two of the strongest planets. Both major lunations, the Full Moon in Aries—sign of self, ruled by Scorpio’s coruler, Mars—and the Eclipse New Moon, also in Scorpio, connect deeply with the powerful Scorpion. And Jupiter, planet of fortune, activates the critical 0 point of Aries, triggering dynamic, far-reaching actions. We may feel as though we’re awakening from a dream, or from drawn out, involuntary anesthesia. We want to rise up and take the reins of our life, and we can.
At first glance, the influences seem kind of tough. Like a lover’s prayerful letters hidden in a soldier’s pocket, there are also gentle forces at hand, forces that reaffirm connection—with others, with angels, and with our own inmost selves.
Venus has an important role. In three important ways—through her current brief stint as ruler of Sun, Mercury, and herself in Libra, through her transits this month, and as a key player in both major lunations—Venus, planet of love and money, will be a continuous, harmonizing force.
Jupiter contributes good vibes as well. Before the month ends, noble Jupiter backs into compassionate Pisces, water sign of his rule, where this planet of expansion releases waves of compassion and good fortune—particularly in spirituality, healing, altruism, art, and promotional activities.
Under these two beneficent planetary influences, our confidence and determination are restored; we’re ready to steam ahead. And we can! Yet this doesn’t mean we’ll be repressing our feelings or going it alone. Venus and Jupiter, the kind and great benefics, will keep our heart-light burning, enliven positive connection, make our way sweeter, and maybe even magical. Whether for our independent path or in relationship, the prevailing energies hold great potential. With all this promise and intensity, it’s worth….
