1st Half October 2021 – Finding Your Inner Strength…Power and Transformation We start off the month on October 6th with two major events occurring on the same day. We have a New Moon in the harmonious sign of Libra, and Pluto, the planet of transformation, is stationing direct. Pluto is the smallest and furthest planet from the Sun and ruler of the Underworld. In order for us to thrive, Pluto wants us to transform, evolve and grow. Pluto is known to be the Great Revealer, but with a dark night before the rebirth. Pluto’s energy is very subtle with it being so far away from the sun, and its energy cannot be suppressed. While in retrograde, it was stirring up, removing, cleansing, and showing us what was in our life that had become stagnant, so that we could begin to transform for the future. Whenever a slow-moving planet changes direction, its energy intensifies. Pluto being the planet of transformation and regrowth urges us to let go and surrender… to become a new person. Now that it is moving forward, this Plutonian energy will begin to peak. We should expect intense thoughts, feelings, and emotions that will help us see clearer what needs transformation in our lives…how our views changed, the difference between what we see as right or wrong and events that will trigger our instinct for control. You now have the courage and are evolving, making decisions that will change you and your life for the future.
Also, on October 6th we have a beautiful New Moon in the harmonious sign of Libra. Libra is the 7th sign of the zodiac and represents symmetry and its focus is keeping balance and equilibrium. Libra is ruled by air , so our attention will be on different types of communication to keep the peace. Since this Libra New Moon is conjunct the planet Mars,…the planet of drive and willpower… We will want harmony and have the strength of Mars to push forward our thoughts, ideas and agendas. Mars wants us to move head first and address missed opportunities and broken promises. This time we will want to find balance between relationships and our need to focus on our own self-care.
On October 10th, Saturn, the planet that requires discipline, structure and rules …stations direct. During Saturn’s retrograde motion, we were required to go back, and review any and all boundaries. We had to look at what we believed to be truths and solid foundations from our past and now create new boundaries that are sustainable. Saturn is the planet that represents traditions and major themes which are part of our everyday lives. Saturn represents maturity, responsibility, and stewardship. Saturn wants to help us to become the highest, most mature version of ourself when challenged. Now that Saturn is moving forward, we focus on tapping into our mental, physical and emotional health. Ask yourself…Where have your boundaries been challenged? What changes have you made to create new boundaries for your mental, physical and spiritual well-being? And…moving forward… how will you maintain your boundaries and keep a balance to stay healthy in all areas of our daily lives. Honor yourself. With the We now have two slow moving, heavy planets moving direct within days of each other, so this will be a significant week for major change. Pluto, find your passion and eliminate unhealthy obsession and Saturn, focus on what is essential that will get you to what you are meant to do in this lifetime.
On October 18th, Mercury, the planet of technology and communication, stations direct. Communication that you have been waiting for (email, text, contracts and travel ) finally comes through this week. Also at this time, Mercury will be opposite Chiron, also known as the Wounded Healer. Expect that our communication focus may be on healing or trauma. Use caution and choose how you communicate carefully…words can hurt.
