Astro Overview for October

October begins under the introspective influence of Mercury retrograde, building a series of dynamics that draw our attention to relationships. The energy of air signs, active throughout the coming weeks, invites us to find intelligent solutions, objectively thought out and properly documented. We need to understand the meaning of healthy compromises in order to maintain civilized relations with those around us.

Not less than four planets turn direct during this month. As a result, after October 18 we will feel that we are moving straightforward, with less time for reflections and retrospective analysis. Venus’ entry in Sagittarius on October 7 brings an optimistic and adventurous mood in relationships, while Scorpio’s activation after October 23 invites us to intense emotional investigations. Let’s follow the main astral events of the month!

Venus (Scorpio) square Jupiter (Aquarius): excesses in relationships

On October 1 Venus and Jupiter form a hard aspect, which invites us to be wiser in relationships and in our financial behaviors. Some friendships can end up in crisis. AstroFidelia recommends confronting uncomfortable truths in relationships with detachment and intelligence. Faith in fair solutions for everyone helps us eliminate toxic situations in our most important personal partnerships.

Mercury retrograde (Libra) trine Jupiter (Aquarius): expansive and visionary thinking

On October 4, we might reach special and valuable awareness. From a non-prejudiced philosophical perspective, we see things with high clarity. We perceive our inner world in surprising ways. Networking makes us feel instantly connected to people from everywhere. We compare different sequences and information, drawing interesting conclusions. The past and the future combine in unexpected ways.

Venus in Sagittarius: trusting love

On October 7 Venus leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius, triggering a period in which we will value optimism in relationships. From this moment on, we are tempted to express our affection through gestures of encouragement and by co-opting our loved ones on various journeys, adventures, philosophical debates. Foreign contacts and meetings with spiritual guides are favoured. We become more nonchalant and spontaneous in relationships.

Mercury retrograde conjunct Sun and Mars (Libra): illumination and energization of the mind

Between 8 and 10 October, a series of conjunctions take place between transiting planets in Libra. Relationships are accompanied by dynamism and a sort of warrior spirit. We seek to preserve balance and diplomacy, but we need to impose firmly our points of view. We reflect on other people’s behaviors. Hesitating and delaying actions can irritate us. Some team activities bring excellent results, but it is up to us how we select our companionship.

Saturn direct (Aquarius): moving forward with our projects

On October 11, Saturn turns direct, and begins to build the last square with Uranus of this year, which will be exact on December 24. After four months of reevaluating the structures built so far, we are refocusing our attention on what we have to set up from now on. We’re trying to combine innovation, progress, integrity, patience and to create the right rules for everyone. We need to build walls of resistance against abusive control.

Sun (Libra) trine Jupiter (Aquarius): optimism and joviality

On October 15 the Sun and Jupiter form a harmonious aspect, inducing an exploratory mood. We identify with high visions and aspirations and set great goals for ourselves. Staying open to friendship brings us into the company of people who help us make important evolutionary leaps. We might feel like the universe is smiling at us, but it’s good to avoid excesses and grandeur. AstroFidelia recommends listening to our inner wisdom.

Mercury (Libra) and Jupiter (Aquarius) direct: looking for new information

Mercury and Jupiter end their retrogradations on the same day, October 18. This creates a realignment of thought to external events and dynamics. We feel our minds becoming clearer, while communication resumes its natural rhythm. We are involved in new projects related to study and travel. We trust our judgment and feel a great thirst for knowledge. We’re looking for the right study and conversation partners.

Mars (Libra) trine Jupiter (Aquarius): broad gestures and cooperation

On October 19, Mars and Jupiter form a harmonious aspect. We trust our strengths and the effectiveness of our actions. Some team efforts can be rewarded nicely. We expand our associations and mobilize more easily if we act for or alongside others. We treat issues related to competition and fight with honor and generosity. AstroFidelia recommends avoiding indulgence with ourselves and mobilizing towards concrete actions.

Sun in Scorpio: intensity and transformation

On October 23 the Sun enters Scorpio. We connect to deep emotions and go through the transformation of repressed energy. We let ourselves guided by intuition and eliminate what is toxic in our lives. We need intensity and we can access great inner sources of power. We might create deep bonds with other people, acting like psychologists or detectives. If we face our fears bravely, we will gain more confidence in ourselves.

Venus (Sagittarius) square Neptune (Pisces): imagination and illusion in relationships

On October 27, Venus and Neptune form a hard aspect that warns us of the tendency to dream with open eyes. If we project our most beautiful expectations on other people, we may be disappointed by the reality. If we rise above the worldly attachments and connect to universal love, we can feel a blessed state of transcendence. We need radical sincerity in love.

Sun (Scorpio) square Saturn (Aquarius): extreme seriousness

On October 30, the Sun and Saturn ask for maturity and responsibility, but they can also induce some frustrated, rigid behaviors. We’re coldly analyzing situations. We make authoritarian decisions. We might clash with people in control positions. We might run into blockages and restrictions, but at the same time we can find the inner force to destroy systems that defy normality and equal rights to happiness, development, self-assertion.

Mars in Scorpio: penetrating actions

On October 30 we also celebrate the Mars’ entrance into its nocturnal domicile, Scorpio. Passion leads us to intense, energetic gestures. We exude magnetism and strong desires. It is good to pay attention to the tendency towards compulsive behaviors, manipulation and revenge. We can oscillate between extremes: we either don’t trust our forces at all and hide, or we are capable of radical actions.

October’s sky therefore brings us notable planetary events. Under the cumulative impact of the four planets that turn direct, we can expect a special change in the general atmosphere. The first part of the month triggers analysis and introspection, most of them related to relationships and collaboration. We are invited to develop grace, tolerate paradoxes, demonstrate firmness in fair choices and reject inappropriate life paths.
