Welcome October 2022, Full Moons, Retrogrades and Planets going Direct!!!
On October 1st, Venus, the planet of our needs, wants and values, is in the very diplomatic sign of Libra. It will oppose the planet of abundance Jupiter. Jupiter is asking us to find a balance of what we want, desire or crave, and to find ways to share our bounty with others.
On October 6th, we have Mercury in the grounded and very detail-oriented sign of Virgo in a harmonious aspect to Pluto, the planet of transformation, in the sign of Capricorn. For many, this will be a time of clearly communicating what our needs are to build sustainably upon. Our minds will be focused and determined with the ability to hone a particular skill.
Oct 8th, we have the small but mighty planet of Pluto stationing direct. Pluto symbolizes regeneration, transformation and rebirth. It has been retrograde since April 29 th 2022 and is now ready to move forward again. For many, this will be a time to look at things differently. To transform and evolve with a new outlook. Pluto stations retrograde about once a year for about months. The main theme of this time period had been focused on reflection. To give each person an opportunity to work hard and embrace your fears. As it stations direct,
reflect to fuel your growth. It’s time to change. Take your time and become aware and make small adjustments so you can move forward.
On October 9th, we have a beautiful, fiery full moon in Aries. Full moons bring endings, closures and a promise of fulfillment. This full moon brings Aries themes of confidence and impulsive, bold actions. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and wants to initiate activity. To solve problems faster. At this time, you may want to use caution, slow down and not rush. Work at a pace you are comfortable and finish projects started.
October 10th ushers the planet of travel and communication, Mercury, into the air sign of Libra. Here, Libra is a social butterfly and wants to balance emotions and workflow. This is the perfect time to sign important documents or travel with friends or partners. Libra is charming and friendly, and when combined with chatty Mercury, will have a knack for knowing all the right things to say at the perfect time.
On October 11th, The Sun in Libra is trine the very serious planet of Saturn in Aquarius. This means you may take on more responsibility, be more serious and reserved. Set big goals for yourself that are realistic and achievable. You have what it takes at this time to get the job done and your long-term goals are well balanced.
This October 17th the Sun, representing our purpose will trine the very driven planet of Mars. While here our energy levels and self-confidence will be beautiful and balanced. This is the best time to achieve your needs and desires to reach your goals in all of your relationships… personal and professional. You know
what you want and have the extra energy to go after it…and have a great chance of getting it!
On October 23rd the sun representing our purpose and drive moves into the deep waters of Scorpio. Scorpio is mysterious and motivated by a need for emotional closeness, connection and the truth. There will be a drive to succeed, and with Venus representing our relationships is sociable. Scorpio being a fixed water sign, our passion and intuition will be magnified. Scorpio is passionate and dives headfirst into love and craves meaningful and intense experiences. in Scorpio and Saturn direct (difficult USA chart for Saturn)… Sun in Venus in Scorpio
Next, on October 25th We have a New Moon in Scorpio and Solar South Node Eclipse. The most eventful times of the year usually coincide with the Eclipses. They are times of alignment. Their goal is to remind us of our life’s purpose. They bring about fast paced shifts, shocking revelations, sudden endings and quick beginnings. They are a realignment to put us back on track where we have veered off.
There are four eclipses in 2022 and all of them happen on the Taurus-Scorpio axis. If you have personal planets or angels in Taurus and Scorpio, watch for these eclipses. This is when you can expect major events, changes or developments. Taurus rules the 3rd house of local activity, neighbors and communication. Taurus is an earth sign that is ruled by Venus…earthy, solid, sensual and grounded. Both of Taurus and Scorpio’s energy is fixed. Scorpio rules the 8th house and is a water sign that is fluid, rules sexuality, birth, death and rebirth. All eclipses this year have an aspect to the planet Uranus. This means everyone should expect events with even more surprises, twists and turns. This eclipse is
exactly conjunct Venus, The Goddess of Love, and will bring important developments in our relationships with peers and loved ones.
On October 28th Jupiter moves back into the independent sign of Aries. To understand this transit is to understand Jupiter. Jupiter is the Great Teacher, wanting to help us grow in ways that magnify the awareness, good fortune and opportunity in our lives. This energy is about moving us beyond our limits to realize the amount of opportunity that is available to us. While in pioneering, independent and headstrong Aries there will be energy for travel and meeting challenges head on. We will have the ability to widen our perspectives. When
Jupiter is in Aries; we are energized on a personal level. We will be focused on ourselves as individuals. Aries, a fire sign that rules the head…so our minds and thoughts will be on fire! We will be ignited with innovative ideas and intuition. This is an opportunity to let go of limits of your past and come up with new solutions for the future. Step into uncharted territory. There will be possibilities to better yourself now that before we didn’t have the expansive sight that Jupiter provides. Jupiter often encourages us to learn from others, but Jupiter in Aries is more about self-teaching, self-awareness and self-learning. Take risks, try and succeed, fail and learn. Both of these are valuable for learning and growing. Learn in your own way. During this transit there can be a danger of becoming so focused on ourselves and our own viewpoints. Opinions can run hot, and we can be impatient for action. This can fan the flames of confrontation socially and politically. Remember the importance of two-way dialogue and leave yourself open to learning from others. Expand your thoughts and embrace the power you have to control the direction
(Aries) of your life. Be open to opportunities (Jupiter), solutions relationships and fortune. Aries….You, are the key to your (Jupiter) big, expansive future. Learn More Here!
On October 30th we have Mars, the planet of drive and passion, stationing retrograde. This energy will be a back-and-forth period lasting until January 13th 2023. Mars in Gemini means our actions will speak louder than our words, but when Mars goes retrograde in Gemini…our words can become weapons. They can be used to motivate, seduce, or undermine ourselves or others. Use this retrograde period as an opportunity to revise your thinking and communication patterns that shape your actions. For example, speaking out and
telling others about what you plan to do can give you the drive to actually put your thoughts into action! Do it! If you find that some of your actions and behaviors have been sabotaging your
efforts, now is the time to finally get to the root of the problem and rewire your minds to move forward so you can think and act differently in the future.
