Astro Overview for October

October appears, at least at first sight, to be at least as dynamic as the previous month, yet a lot more condensed aspects-wise than the former. Hence it is that more than one cosmic event take place on the same day, giving us the necessary time to digest whichever influences they bring. Let us however take a closer look at the most notable astrological configurations of this month:

Mercury (Libra) square Pluto Rx (Capricorn): Discord’s apple

The first notable astrological aspect of autumn’s second month is the unfavorable square between Mercury transiting Libra and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. Around and/or on October, 2, tensions or even arguments are likely to arise between romantic and/or business partners. We are called to make sure that no conflicts begin around this date. Otherwise, the status quo of our love and business relations will be extremely challenged and the consequences serious.

Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio: passion becomes obsession

From October 5, Venus transits the sign of its nocturnal exile, Scorpio, in retrograde motion, which points to the possibility of love relationships turning its toxic affairs. It is advisable that we become aware of this tendency before it unfolds. Otherwise, things might spiral out of control and go downhill real fast. Those involved in business partnerships are likely to encounter issues concerning finances. Increased honesty and more openness are both required during this period.

Mercury enters Scorpio, Mercury (Scorpio) opposition Uranus retrograde (Taurus): money talks

Two important astrological events marks October, 10: Mercury enters Scorpio and it forms a tense opposition with Uranus retrograde in Taurus. From this day onwards, we are likely to be less talkative, favouring instead non-verbal communication alternatives. Around or on this day, difficult financial situations are on the cards and/or we are likely to fall prey to possessivity. It is advisable that we are more frugal than usual, while also keeping an eye on our jealous streak.

Venus retrograde (Scorpio) square Mars (Aquarius): clipping partner’s wings

Around or on October, 11, Venus retrograde in Scorpion sends a dissonant square towards Mars in Aquarius, indicating that our (temporary) jealous and possessive streak is likely to leave its mark profoundly on the love relationship. The healthy dose of freedom we enjoy in the romance department might vanish if we do not change our attitude fast enough. It is recommended that such displays of distrust are potentially damaging if there is no real evidence to the contrary.

Mercury (Scorpio) trine Neptune retrograde (Pisces) square Mars (Aquarius): I forgive but I don’t forget

Two notable cosmic configurations form on October, 19: the favourable trine between Mercury in Scorpion and Neptune retrograde in Pisces and the tense square between the former and Mars in Aquarius. Hence is that, around or on this day, we are likely to be more intuitive than usual, guessing partner’s feelings with grater accuracy, while finding it difficult to put our own emotions into words, which might lead to misunderstandings. Let us not rely on signals only.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Scorpio): inner growth

The conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio marks October, 29. Around or on this day, sharing our feelings with our confidantes might help us not only to understand them better, but also to clarify how we feel about certain issues. Otherwise, any difficult state of mind we may have these days will get more serious. It is therefore recommended that we find someone of trust and discuss any problem we may experience. Keeping things inside is not a viable solution.

Venus Rx conjunct Jupiter (Scorpio), Venus returns to Libra, Mercury enters Sagittarius: mixed feelings and experiences

Three important astrological events mark the last day of this month: the conjunction between Venus retrograde and Jupiter in Scorpion, the former’s return to Libra, its diurnal domicile, and Mercury’s ingress to Sagittarius, its diurnal exile. Hence it is that, around or on this day, we may be jealous and possessive, only to become indecisive, most likely because we find it hard to think things clearly and look into the details. It is important that we take them one step at a time then.

As is evident from the paragraphs above, the second month of autumn rivals its predecessor, perhaps not in terms of multitude of events, but certainly as far as their intensity is concerned. Thus, we might be tempted to lose momentum, yet it is advisable to keep in mind that this is the season when we are supposed to perform at our highest level and achieve quantifiable results.
