We are in the Season of the Witch; just a 12 days from Halloween. This Thursday the Sun enters Scorpio, and we celebrate the Mighty Dead. The veil between the worlds is thin, and we can all communicate with the spirit world. I usually see spirits out of the corner of my eye… do you see them or sense them?
We made it through last week and the life-altering jolts of the Sun (your Soul’s path) squaring Jupiter (truth), Pluto (evolution), and Saturn (responsibility). Each square asked you to turn a corner in in your life. Last Thursday’s New Moon in Libra brought us a fresh, new vision for the future, and a new way of living our lives – especially in the arena of relationships. This week we grow this new idea as we finish this year’s transit through the sign of Libra.
You might have felt emotionally heavy this weekend with the Sun squaring Saturn. If you felt moody or depressed, you’ll feel better as the week gets started. The way through these transits is to focus on chores and working towards your responsibilities.
Monday, October 19th: Moon in Sagittarius. The Sun begins it’s travels through the last degrees of Libra. Relationship issues could surface today. The Sagittarius Moon asks you to face your life with courage, honesty and adventure. What feels easy to commit to right now? It could be a person, situation, or the new path you glimpsed last week. Venus trine Jupiter is also exact today, which can bring inspiration in love, art, money and fashion. This is a wonderful aspect for creativity.
Mercury retrograde in opposition to Uranus at 7:53pm Pacific. This will bring huge breakthroughs in how we think, and hidden information. Mercury in Scorpio is about strategy and secrets, and when it’s retrograde these secrets can come out. Pay close attention to what’s revealed to you this week. The good part is it can also help us express our genius.
Tuesday, October 20th: Moon in Sagittarius. Day of Truth. The Moon crosses the Galactic Center and sends us “messages”; flashes of insight can arrive suddenly! Pay attention to your thoughts and where they are leading you. What are you being “called” to do? Put your energies there.
Wednesday, October 21st: Moon in Capricorn. Venus trines Pluto, which can bring extremes to relationships. If things are stressed between you and your partner, there could be some deep challenges appearing today. Pluto brings a serious, “do or die” type of energy, so we could see some breakups. Adding to this, Mercury squares Saturn bringing seriousness to communications. Don’t negotiate with authorities today if possible, instead use your time for practice and study. Speak to someone older and wiser.
Thursday, October 22nd: Sun into Scorpio at 4pm Pacific, Moon in Capricorn. Be mystical today, but embrace the Capricorn Moon and get to work too. Moon joins Saturn today which can bring emotional heaviness or depression. We’ve reached the end of the Sun’s journey through Libra, so there might be “tests” from the Universe on any relationship changes you made in October.
Friday, October 23rd: Moon in Aquarius makes people friendly but detached, which is better for negotiating. Sun newly in Scorpio opposes Black Moon Lilith at 0 Taurus which exposes our secrets. This delivers illumination around your soul’s path and what all of us need to do to survive in this new Covid economy. So many people are scared and struggling right now, hopefully this transit will bring some clarity on how to move forward, and the strength to face our fears.
Saturday, October 24th: Moon in Aquarius. Feel the optimism in the air today! Aquarius asks us to focus on the future, make plans, and involve our network of friends. Watch out for risky behavior though, since Uranus brings spontaneity, rebellion, and independence. Focus on expressing your unique genius.
Sunday, October 25th: Moon into Pisces at 2:18pm Pacific. Music, purification, healing, secrets and deep conversations. Go with the flow. Sun conjunct Mercury unites your heart and mind. We each receive new clarity on the major parts of our lives and the way forward on our path. Sunday is a turning point and commitment to the changes that began on Monday of this week.
