The Full Moon in Aries on October 5th forces us to look at our relationships to see if we have a balance between our individuality and commitments to others. Mars and Venus will be joined together in the service sign of Virgo making a challenging aspect to Saturn. Working on our relationships is the key to understanding the energy of this month.
Jupiter will leave the sign of Libra and enter Scorpio on the 10th and will travel approximately for a year through this sign. Scorpio represents shared resources, so it’s interesting that the new tax plan will be revealed and debated at this time. Wall Street might go on a wild ride of ups and downs during the debate on what will end up going through.
Due to Mars being square Saturn this month, we will feel as though we are ramming against a wall. This is especially difficult for those who don’t like obstacles put in their path. The best way to get through this is to tackle the things we can control and let go of the things we can’t.
The New Moon on the 19th (my birthday), will be in opposition to rebellious Uranus. All the Libras out there should do something they have never done before by themselves. By the 23rd, the Sun moves into Scorpio and Mars goes into Libra. It’s back to working on our relationships.
The first week of the month has Mercury and Mars together in Leo, so this is the last eruption tying the Leo Solar Eclipse to the energy of someone forcing their will upon you. This will begin to abate as Mars will move into Virgo and Mercury will come out of retrograde on the 10th and also enter Virgo.
Virgo wants to fix things, so now is the time to repair all the damage from the previous month and move from force to helping and understanding. All of the inner planets move into Virgo this month, which also includes a New Moon on the 19th. Where Leo represents ego and self will, Virgo is to serve above self. It is interesting that all of the human discourse and attacks in the previous months has now given way to humanitarian efforts for each other in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. It takes nature to show us at the end of the day, we are all human and in this together.
We will experience the last opposition between Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. All current legal troubles will be highlighted and need to be dealt with. The Virgo energy of this month helps fix the conflicts that have been ongoing. Get a mediator if you are not able to do this yourself. The Sun moves into the justice sign of Libra on the 23rd helping with compromise. Pluto in Capricorn will make a favorable aspect to Mercury. These favorable combinations will open up the possibility of coming to a win/win outcome.

With Pluto making its third square to Jupiter on the 4th and Uranus goes retrograde in Aries on the 2nd, the first week of the month creates a dynamic where people try and force their beliefs on you. Arguments will heat up and this will create tension and irritability. Mars is also conjunct the Sun in Leo which makes this all the worse. Keep your distance from overbearing outside forces.
The Aquarius Full Moon and lunar eclipse on the 7th makes you feel like you don’t want to belong to anyone else’s agenda. Saturn has been retrograde in Sagittarius which rules our beliefs. This has made us go in and reevaluate what is true for us individually versus what others may want for us.
The powerful solar eclipse on the 21st is a super New Moon. It takes place in the sign of your creative self will, Leo. This signals a time of major endings and beginnings. It asks you if you are truly in command of who you really are, or are outside influences still directing your journey. Is your Soul voice guiding you? If not, then what is, because this is where the change needs to come from.
The Sun will move into the service sign of Virgo on the 22nd. On the 25th Saturn goes direct in Sagittarius. So now that you have decided who you really are and what you believe to be true for only you, the next step is to give that to those who would want and value it.
