PLUTO is the slow moving outer planet that brings transformation, shifts in power and perspective ...now back in Capricorn for his annual RETROGRADE PERIOD. This powerful intense energy causes political turbulence, right wing shifts and u-turns in government policies around the world when he's retrograde in Capricorn so watch the news and pay attention to the changes in the money markets!! . He turns around on 11th October and by the end of January 2024, he's done his work and is ready to enter Aquarius again . PLUTO takes 248 years to go around the Heavens and the last time he was here in Aquarius in 1778 to 1798, he created all sorts of progressive changes in our society, rebellion and revolutions against out moded structures, development in the sciences, new ways of thinking and concepts around human rights, psychology, politics and freedom. We'll all have to wait until he's finished tidying up all those political changes and rebalanced the global power structures. Pluto RETROGRADE pushes us inwards to examine our own ego, power needs, Shadow personality, possessive emotions, sense of belonging ... and then brings us to Rebirth, arising with like the Phoenix with new values and aspirations for living.
There a highly useful and positive Alliance between NEPTUNE, URANUS and PLUTO, a lovely slow moving aspect that’s there for the whole of October - with the MOON creating a useful GRAND TRINE on the 12th to consolidate the resources and Earth energies.
JUPITER, the KING of the PLANETS and Ruler of Expansion, travel, entertainment and learning is in Taurus until the end of the year, putting his generous and expanding forces into our connection to the Earth, our income and possessions, our property interests and need for beauty, the arts and luxury. That expansion can take the form of travel in beautiful places, developing your interests in the arts or learning new skills to support yourself. JUPITER is RETROGRADE from the 4th September to NEW YEAR'S EVE offering the chance to go over plans, review learning, integrate past experiences and shift the vision to align with new values and beliefs. By the 1st January, just when you are busy writing out your NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS JUPITER says OK we can all move forward now too!
MARS the FIERY WARRIOR is marching through Libra carrying an olive branch and very focused on bringing balance to relationships and justice - particularly around women's rights and gender equality. You can use this period to work on your body, flexibility, stretching and creating harmony around you. On Friday 13th MARS jumps into sexy Scorpio ... stirring up deep emotions, creating political turmoil and dramas in which ever house he occupies for you! MARS is SQUARED to PLUTO this month, encouraging us all to get our teeth checked and deal with money and love life issues that we may have been ignoring! Take action, take exercise! Luckily MARS is also talking nicely to SATURN the GREAT CONTROLLER in Pisces all month, to make you super efficient and organised!
SATURN the GREAT TEACHER and CONTROLLER, is also walking backward through Pisces until 4th November, giving you time to re-organise your work and career and putting a frame work around all that inspires your productivity. That includes networks and social media, medical providers and education …. and we all are likely to be adjusting our boundaries and tightening up our work ethics in the process.... online activities are likely to have a dollop of restrictions and regulations over the few months.
The NEW MOON flows into Libra on the 14th October, at 17:55 UT (GMT) ... and it's not just any old NEW MOON, but an Annular Solar Eclipse, where the MOON covers the face of the SUN to produce a ring of fire. The SUN and MOON are very close to little MERCURY, leading a HAND OF DESTINY, a YOD, reaching over to NEPTUNE and URANUS for one of those pivotal moment in time changing direction and purpose. With MERCURY involved in Libra there be good news and necessary information! This eclipse is can be seen from the North, Central and South America, but parts of West Africa and the Pacific can catch the partial eclipse. Remember to organise your welding goggles and black glass beforehand so you can watch!
The SUN slips into Scorpio on the 24th of October, to focus on money, climate change and sources of POWER. !
There's a FULL MOON Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 28th October, flowing through Taurus at 20:23 UT (GMT) - close to JUPITER. The Shadow of the Earth will creep across slowly over part of the MOON, it's not a full covering but still fun to see and this one is visible in some form for the rest of the world apart from the Americas. Check online for best viewing details. MARS and MERCURY are wrapped around the Scorpio SUN, to add intensity and emotional reactions. A night to dance under the stars with loved ones, eat delicious food, and be grateful for all you have.
