Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in October. The emphasis this month is on the signs Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio’ Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Leo performs, Virgo serves, Libra relates’ and Scorpio motivates. Jupiter left Aries and entered Taurus on May 16 and stays for a year. This promotes Taurus things like finances, nature, and beauty. Jupiter in Taurus moves toward Uranus. Jupiter is expansive & Uranus is unusual. Together they can bring unusual good. Venus continues in Leo in week 1. We act socially and love with flare. Mercury until the 5th and Venus from the 9th are in Virgo. Our analytical thinking is shifting focus to love matters. Venus relates to many planets and shows our aesthetics to be extensive. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, and Mercury from the 5th until the 22nd, and Mars, until the 12th, are in relating Libra. Beauty, fairness, and relationships are important. Until the 12th they are energized but also stressed due to Mars. Mars in week 2, Mercury in week 3, and the Sun in week 3 square Pluto and could bring some extreme events in the news. The Sun and Mercury in week 4, and Mars from the 12th are in Scorpio and increase passion and intensity around us. Saturn is in Pisces and stays until Feb. ’26. Pisceans will have some concerns that they should address by setting goals to fill any deficiencies that they encounter. And they will have opportunities to build disipline and accomplish. Saturn can also promote drive and get us where we want to go, through positive qualities like planning, work, & learning from setbacks. We should be careful about who we team up with; and make sure that they can pull their weight. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways. Now that Saturn is also in Pisces with Neptune, we have two very different influences there; one is imaginative and the other is practical.
Pluto is back in Capricorn again and will continue to affect both late Capricorns and early Aquarians. Both should address any forceful things, people, and situations that they meet. This can bring the development of positive force and dynamism. Activity with constructive groups can be good. On a larger scale, Pluto is vacilating between affecting government when in Capricorn to affecting humanity when in Aquarius.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra on the 13th and 14th is a new start in relationships.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on the 28th, 29th, and morning of the 30th contrasts spring and fall themes and brings us moonlight to enjoy. Under eclipses let’s do something special, but be sensible due to the power of these events.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Cancer on the 5th, the 6th, and much of the 7th and in Capricorn on the 20th, and the 21st.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1, 2, 3, 11, 12, 13, 15, 19, 24, & 25. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
