ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 1-15, 2023
The Solar Eclipse New Moon on October 14 at 10:55 AM PST promises to deliver a punch. In Libra and square Pluto it exposes where you’ve made a habit of giving your power away to keep the peace, for diplomacy, to not be abandoned or just plain avoidance. This Eclipse builds directly from actions and decisions you’ve made the last week of September, especially around what you should’ve done but didn’t or what you did but shouldn’t have.
If you’re being passive- aggressive, non- confrontational or lazy especially in relationship or a partnership you’re going to get outed. The toxicity of Pluto exposing where you’ve covered for someone, covered something over or covered your eyes is about to be seen.
The government, the economy, political brinksmanship, the court’s duplicity, Congress passing the buck will have repercussions over the next six months.
The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Libra square Pluto shows where walking on eggshells doesn’t make delicious omelets. Mars passing over the exact place of the Eclipse in Libra during the last week of September activates conflict in relationship internally and externally. Where you’re hurting might be disguised by muted anger.
Venus completing its’ shadow at 28 degrees of Leo on October 7 brings past love connections to a turning point. What you’ve been ruminating about since June 20 is clearer. You understand better how you need to love, whom you love and what aspect of love gives you the lifeforce to keep on going. Love is eminently more possible when loving the self.
Mars squares Pluto October 7,8,9, 10. Manipulation is acted on bigtime for government, studios and conglomerate survival and power. Be patient with all the shifts and last minute decisions.
Pluto going direct in Capricorn on October 10 brings power trysts that have been going backward since May 2 begin to go forward. The Pluto retrograde allowed a revisit with how power cannot be sustained in the old way. A renovation is in order and can move forward.
What devastating experience shook you up and brought a period of a void where nothing moved and all was frozen since early 2022? After October 12 -November 2024 a garden gets planted and blossoms. All that was hurt turns to healing.
The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on October 28 in Taurus brings a bookend of joy and expansion to where love has gone. If you’ve lost your love or it’s disappeared, this Eclipse brings love back in some form. The whole Venus retrograde period since June 20 is deeper and fuller. Art, creativity and love are back in a prosperous and loving way.
This astrology period is strange and hysterical. People and things that you thought belonged to you are exposed as not being so real while things that you shared no symmetry with at first manifest surprisingly.
The message of this time is to be wise with whom and what you partner with. The end of a cycle is upon us. Stick with what goes beyond the test of time and propels you into a potential that evolves. The things within that you fear can actually become strengths when acknowledged and accepted. This time is one of topsy turvy, what goes up comes down while what is down ascends almost magically to a new level.
