Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in October. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aries, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aries takes action, Gemini notices, Virgo serves, Libra relates, and Scorpio reacts. Jupiter continues in Aries and promotes action and enthusiasm. Mars is in Gemini from week 4 of August until the 4th week of March. This is huge and affects anyone with something important in Gemini, for example, the U.S., Trump, Kamala, and Biden. We all should harmonize our thoughts and speech to counter the tendency for these areas to be tense. While Mars is in Gemini, it squares mysterious & illussive Neptune. This confuses, events, energy, and actions. Mercury is in Virgo until the 10th; our analytical skills are strong and we may figure some things out. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3; Mercury after the 10th; and Venus until the 23rd are in Libra. This turns our minds to relationships. After mid month these bodies square Pluto and bring extremes. The Sun and Venus in week 4 and Mercury after the 29th are in Scorpio and make us good investigators. .Mercury is retrogradr on the 1st ; one last day with the eraser. Saturn, is still in Aquarius until March of ’23. It can bring difficulty to Aquarian things like: humanity, knowledge, friends, hope, and the future. It is important that we think, act, and behave in positive ways to counter this. This affects the world and us personally. Saturn can also promote drive and get us where we want to go. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Saturn is squaring Uranus this year; this can bring unexpected trouble, and trouble with technical things. This is very strong this month. So we need to stay on top of things. Mars is trining Saturn while in Gemini and shows that action is helping problems. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways.
Pluto is still in Capricorn and brings transformation to government and business.
A Full Moon in Aries on the afternoon of the 8th, the 9th and much of the 10th contrasts “I versus thou”.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 25th, and 26th brings a new start in secret areas and important events.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Capricorn on the 2nd, and 3rd and in Cancer on the afternoon of the 15, the 16th, and 17th.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 3, 4, 5, 13, 14, 20, 23, 24, & 30. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
