Weekly General Astrology Forecast October 2
- Bring desire down to earth
- Go for the slow burn
- What you want – and how you go about getting it, matters
Powerful, transformation aspects with that added alchemical ingredient of sensuality along with a sprinkle of lust thrown in for good measure, occur this week. And it’s all about bringing our desires down to earth. Desire is a funny thing. No really. What we desire has far reaching consequences – if not for ourselves then usually for others. Perhaps this is a week when we make a decision to act on our desires to add: ‘for the good of all’ as a caveat. Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at the start of the week. Both these planets rule Scorpio – that sign associated not just with desire but also power and transformation. Add to this a full Moon in Mars’s ruling sign of Aries on the 5th and you have a potent cocktail going on. Desires could run riot – and perhaps not in the best possible way either. Mars is in Virgo, the sign of detail and restraint while Pluto sits in the sign of establishment. As far as acting on desire – or should I say impulse goes, take a look at whether you are being driven by your own, or are a victim of someone else’s. You may feel put-upon or bamboozled in some way and if so, Mars is all about boundaries and Aries is all about action. Don’t let anyone step over the line when it comes to your feelings. And extend them the same courtesy.
Emotional empowerment could just be the result you achieve. Lucky for all of us Venus is also making a fabulous trine to Pluto from Virgo and on the same day as the full Moon occurs, meets her other half Mars in here. Many people get so hung up on the virginal connotation of Virgo they forget that this is also a sign of earthly sensuality. Forget the obvious. Virgo’s sexiness is all about lying tangled in Egyptian cotton sheets and subtle scents. It’s not about showing acres of flesh but hinting what lies beneath and leaving everything to the imagination until you choose to reveal all – at a time and a place of your choosing. Add in that Mars and you now have something that really smoulders.
If you’ve not been feeling good lately, if your job or your relationship or even your body doesn’t allow you to reveal in every sensual moment of being alive, this full Moon and Venus/Mars meeting will be your wake-up call. Others could see a reawakening of desire that they felt had gone for good. Or else now see exactly what has been missing from their life. This week is all about what you want – and how you go about getting it.
