This whole month is colored by three factors: Saturn enters Scorpio on the 5th, Saturn Trines Neptune on the 10th, and the Full Moon on the 29th. Saturn entering Scorpio ushers in a two and a half year period when we have to examine the dark side of our own personality. With Pluto (lord of the underworld) and Saturn (lord of karma) in mutual reception, we will see the consolidation of financial institutions as well as their dismemberment. We are at the beginning of genuine restructuring. The first of three Saturn Trine Neptune aspects gives us an opportunity to direct our hard work in the most productive fashion. Our long range goals suddenly seem within reach. The Full Moon triggers the revolutionary energies that have been working on our culture during the last six months.
The New Moon is at 22 degrees of Libra on October 15th at 8:03AM EDT. With four planets in Cardinal signs (physical change) and four planets in Mutable signs (mental nervousness) and only two planets in Fixed signs (stability) this New Moon happens with permanent alterations being necessary. Big plans work out when we take time to process our thoughts carefully. Mercury (god of thought) is Sextile Venus (goddess of love). With the New Moon in Libra (sign of balance) it is possible to obtain a deep and abiding peace now. The world is struggling with major difficulties but we can contribute to the collective good by finding joy in our everyday lives.
The Full Moon on October 29th at 6 degrees of Scorpio/Taurus happens at 3:50 PM EDT. For the first time, the tools to reverse the domination of the many by the few become very clear. Steps can be taken now to regain power in our own lives. This Full Moon aspects the Pluto/Uranus Square, showing continuingeconomic revelation. Both Venus (goddess of love) and Mercury (messenger of the gods) are in aspect to Neptune (god of culture). This presents us with an opportunity to take a great leap in consciousness. We can reorient our method of relating and growing. Both business and pleasure can change for the better.
The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22nd at 8:14 PM EDT. With the Moon applying to a Sextile to Mars, we work hard with energy and enthusiasm all this solar month. The most predominant feature for this moment, when the Sun enters Scorpio, is his Conjunction to Saturn and the Trine to Neptune; we are forcedtolive out of our genuine higher ideals. This will be a most productive solar month as we can now freely eliminate what has been holding us back as a culture.
