On Sunday, October 1st, Mars in Virgo makes a trine with Pluto in Capricorn at 7:36pm EST, turning ambition on high now that Pluto is direct. Mars in Virgo is inclined to act with more tact and politeness than usual, and when positively matched with Pluto’s deep internal power, things will get done effectively and efficiently.
On Tuesday, October 3rd, Venus in Virgo is next to form a trine with Pluto in Capricorn, although this is not as pleasant a trine as Sunday’s Mars/Pluto. A Venus/Pluto trine is bound to bring up secrets and hidden insecurities in relationships, which can be destructive if not managed properly. Luckily, a trine aspect has a more positive focus, and if you can overcome any new discoveries in your relationships, no matter how shocking, you stand a very good chance of establishing and/or maintaining deep and meaningful connections.
On Thursday, October 5th, Venus in Virgo meets up with Mars in Virgo at 12:53pm EST for the second time this year. This meetup normally results in sensual and even sexual expression and can be quite charming, but with Venus in Fall in Virgo and Mars acting more prudish than usual, this transit may not be as exciting as we’d hope. Instead of being demanding of your loved ones (usually a hallmark of this conjunction), try doing something nice for others today. After all, Virgo is the sign of servitude and effort. Kind deeds may pay off nicely. A Full Moon at 12°43’ Aries takes place today as well. This is the first Full Moon after the fall equinox, and will illuminate areas in which we need to take action and initiate change.
On Sunday, October 8th, Venus in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius at 8:54am EST. This is the last Venus/Saturn square of the year, and with square aspects there are always challenges. Saturn urges us to take responsibility, which conflicts with Venus’s laissez-faire and laid back nature. Relationship challenges may come to a head today when one partner feels they are “doing more” than the other. The Sun in Libra will meet up with Mercury later in the day at 4:54pm EST, sending a lot of mental energy into the mix, which can cause undue stress or worry. Luckily, Mercury moves fast and is at its farthest point from Earth, helping us to process any relationship woes logically and objectively.
On Sunday, October 9th, the Sun/Mercury conjunction in Libra makes a square with Pluto in Capricorn, sending a tailspin of energy into our mental sphere. Thoughts will likely be deep and potentially confusing. This tri-planet aspect will urge you to question what is important and whether or not you are on the right path toward achieving it.
On Tuesday, October 10th, Jupiter enters Scorpio after spending the last 13 months in Libra. Jupiter is the planet of wisdom and knowledge seeking (vs. fact-seeking, which belongs to Mercury), and Scorpio is the sign of investigation and vicarious experience. Life’s deeper mysteries will be at question, and humanitarian issues likely on the rise with this sign change for Jupiter. Anyone whose chart is heavily Scorpio influenced will fare well with Jupiter, the greater benefic of the zodiac, in their corner. Happy investigating!
On Wednesday, October 11th, Mars in Virgo squares off with Saturn in Sagittarius at 9:37am EST, challenging leadership issues. These two planets last met in a square in January, which had the masses on high alert. Everyone will feel entitled and that they are right today, which is likely to cause a lot of conflict and frustration overall. This aspect has us feeling like our way is not just the best way, but the only way to climb to the top. Stay open minded today and try not to be a know-it-all if you don’t want to engage in the chaos.
On Saturday, October 14th, Venus enters Libra at 6:11am EST, where it is in rulership and the most pure in its expression. While we may feel more optimistic, attractive, and socially engaged with Venus in Libra, there is also the chance to sugar coat those aspects of your life that you don’t want others judging or questioning. Make note of this as you move through the course of Venus’s 4 week stay in its home of homes.
On Sunday, October 15th, Mercury in Libra opposes Uranus rx in Aries, sending high frequency vibes straight to our central nervous centers. You may feel like you have information overload today and can’t keep things straight, which makes sense given that Mercury is the fastest moving planet in the zodiac and Uranus is known for its erratic nature. Take this transit in stride, as its energy will pass over the course of two days. Make not of any universal downloads that may come to you, and keep track of them by writing them down, lest you forget the message before you have a chance.
