Astrology of October 2016

October – A Box Full Of Chocolate

October is like a box of chocolates. We have a lot of fixed, mutable AND cardinal energy, so a little bit for everyone. No matter when you are born, it is highly likely that a least a part of your chart will be triggered by something in October. The Nodes of the Moon and the transpersonal planets are highly active this month and this will create a feeling of fatedness, “there is nothing I can do about” whatever unfolds in front of our eyes.

Astrology Calendar October 2016

The month is marked by the exact square between Saturn and the Nodes of the Moon. In the same day, 8th of October we have the 1st Quarter Moon in Capricorn. 1st Quarter Moons are the best times to make adjustments, by using resources gathered to take action toward fulfilling our goals. So no need to be afraid of Saturn – right now, you are the conductor of your own symphony.

11th of October is one of the best days of the month. Mercury is conjunct Jupiter in Libra. This is a great aspect for any kind of presentations – you can make a lasting impact on your audiences, as long as you tailor your message according to their needs.

The Full Moon in Aries on the 15th is a bit tricky and will test our relationships. The Full Moon is conjunct Uranus in Aries, which means the Sun in Libra, (the sign of partnerships), is in opposition with Uranus. Uranus and Moon in Aries are harsh and unpredictable, and they don’t have much patience with Sun’s diplomatic approach. And if that was not enough, at the time of the Full Moon we will also have Mercury square Pluto. Discussions can turn into arguments. We want to hear and speak the truth, however harsh.  Just try to remember that no matter how right you are and wrong they are, during a Full Moon emotions run very high and what we say, what we think we feel, may not be the most accurate reflection of what is actually going on. If you have planets around 23° in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) you will be especially effected by this transit.

On the 29th of October Venus conjuncts Saturn. The two complement each other quite well – Venus, otherwise extremely carefree in Sagittarius, becomes more responsible, whereas Saturn loosens a bit and becomes a bit less disciplined and a little bit more philosophical. This is a good day to reflect on your values and their possible limitations.

The month ends in a very  positive note – The 30th of October New Moon in Scorpio is deep and emotional.  Our intuition will be heightened so pay attention to the gut feelings, thoughts and emotions that come to you. The New Moon is conjunct Mercury and trine Neptune so any creative, artistic, spiritual endeavors are highly favored.  Start an unique project today, especially if it requires some sort of investigation (don’t forget the New Moon is in Scorpio AND conjunct Mercury). With so many creative aspects, this Halloween on the 31st is the perfect pretext  to get in touch with the artist inside and let your imagination run wild.

New Moon, New Beginnings

At 0:11 UTC, October 1st 2016, the Moon will conjunct the Sun at 8 degrees Libra.

At certain key moments in our life, we’ve all experienced the magical feeling of a new beginning – the spark, the excitement, the flow of emotions, the appeal of the unknown, the magnetic pull that makes us want to get out of the old skin to become a beautiful butterfly. The New Moon on 1st of October is all about new beginnings. In Libra, the sign of the “other”, expect new beginnings with new people, or exciting new directions with existing connections.

This New Moon in Libra is the best New Moon we had in a while. Just to give you few reasons.

This is the first New Moon after the eclipse season In September. Eclipses, also called the “renewal season”, are the necessary “cosmic adjustment” he have approximately twice a year. When things get off track, the Eclipses kick-in and bang, we get back in sync with the Source. Eclipses are the cosmic “Reset button”. And now that we are done with the Eclipses – after anything that was no longer needed is gone, it is time for the “new” to emerge. And this is the New Moon magic. When the eternal feminine (the Moon) connects with the eternal masculine (the Sun) this is when creation happens and when things get started. The Nodes of the Moon square Saturn, the planet of Karma, further heightening the “fated” feeling of a new beginning, of something that HAS to happen.

The New Moon is conjunct the great benefit Jupiter. There is nothing more auspicious than a New Moon AND Jupiter aligned in the sky. Moreover, Jupiter just changed signs. Jupiter changes signs once a year. The energy of a planet is activated when we have the first New Moon after the sign change. Do I need to mention again how lucky we are to have Jupiter shining bright next to the New Moon? We will feel like we have just won the celestial lottery!

This New Moon is in Libra and therefore ruled by Venus, which right now is in perfect sync with the planet of higher love, Neptune. Venus and Neptune are in Water signs, so the feelings can reach such a pitch of intensity that will feel sacred.

The theme: Because Libra is the sign of partnerships, we will suddenly become more aware of “the other”.  We will just find it easier to put ourselves into the other people’s shoes, and cooperate with others in a healthy way. This is an excellent time to form partnerships – both romantic and business –  to make agreements, to negotiate and to employ diplomacy in our communication.

The timing: The seeds we plant now we will bear fruits during the upcoming Libra Full Moon on April 10-11, 2017, six months down the line.

What do to: New Moons represent the end of a cycle and the beginning of another. The day of the New Moon and the day after are the window of opportunity to seed new ideas related to Libran themes.Start a new activities with your partner, work in a team, (re)decorate your home, or go shopping for good quality items.

Make a wish list! Set intentions aiming to bring more balance and harmony in your relationships. Write them down.

Make plans together with your partner or with your team. As much as you want to make pans on your own, try experimenting co-creating with others. Experience what it feels like to be an equal, even in your authority’s area.

Meditate together with your partner or a close friend – gaze into each other’s eyes. Try to keep the gaze for at least one minute (you can smile, wink, or even cry, but keep you gaze on).

Don’t overdo it with intentions and lists. In pure Libran style, remember that the best things come when we find that balance between knowing where we are aiming at, and in the same time trusting that Universe will bring us exactly where we need to be.

To recap: the New Moon in Libra is all about new beginnings, especially in the areas of partnerships. This New Moon is extremely auspicious and – with Jupiter’s helping hand –  can help you manifest your wildest dreams. Whether or not you’ve been looking to change something in your life, the New Moon will give you a planetary push in the direction of your soul’s purpose.
