From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, Oct. ’17
For those of you who are local, S.T.A.R. Guild will meet at the library in Cocoa at 308 Forrest at 6 pm on Tuesday, the 24th of Oct. We will look at our charts using solar houses; this should be fun. All interested in astrology are welcome; please bring your chart. If you don’t have it, we’ll put it in the laptop and it will be there forever.
Last month conflict with Noko continued in the news and this is nicely shown by the T square in cardinal signs. This probably also shows conflict in the senate; the T square ends in Octiober and the square of Uranus & Pluto ends in the spring of ’18. Things should get calmer.
The big story last month were the disasters happening in populated areas. Harvey happened soon after the solar eclipse. Irma, Maria, and the earthquake in Mexico happened under Sun square Saturn, which is classic for loss events. All of these events happened under an opposition between Uranus and Jupiter. Jupiter is a weather planet and is associated with acts of God. Uranus represents people due to it rulership of human sign, Aquarius; it is also a hurricane planet. For details of these events with charts see my S.T.A.R. Guild report for Sept. on my site under guild reports. The report without charts is on the STAR Guild facebook page.
In October, Uranus is opposing Jupiter until about mid-month. We are watching volcano, Agung in Bali. Venus and Mars square Saturn until mid month. This tends to show trouble for innocent people. Planets passing through Libra make some extreme connections through mid month. Our part is to be calm and positive in behavior. This sounds great but it’s difficult for us humans. The difficulties mention above could be the ongoing efforts to help those in areas devastated by the recent disasters. Jupiter enters Scorpio on the 10th and stays for a year. This shows help coming to intense situations. Incidentally, by late spring of ’18, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus will have changed sign. Slow moving planets changing sign show major changes for many people because there is a major shift in the energies of reality. Jupiter is faithful, Saturn is goal focused, Uranus is a discoverer. I’ll be thinking of good ways to use all of this.
Full Moon in Aries later on the 4th, the 5th, and much of the 6th contrasts identity and relationships. This also heightens enthusiasm, which in the greek, means that God is within. Billy Graham was Aries rising.
New Moon in Libra on the afternoon of the 17th, the 18th, and most of the 19th is a new start in relationships. We may also be a bit more stylish.
I’ll be at Book & Bead on Saturday. Sept 30th doing Astrology mini readings. See my Moon influences on facebook. And see my Sun Sign column on my site. You may also like to see a detailed look at your sign on my site under 12 part sign series to get some special insights about yourself. Pretty good days: 1, 6, 7, 14, 20, 21, 29, & 30.
