MONTHLY GENERAL ASTROLOGY FORECAST OCTOBER 2021
Trick or treat – retrograde style?
Check that broomstick before flight
Happy birthday, Scorpio!
Before you fire up that broomstick – get it serviced. October begins with spooky, sticky retrograde weather from Mercury in Libra. And even though by All Hallows Eve it is direct once again, it will still be in retroshadow.
So, don’t be a Muggle this month as the month begins with that rocky retrograde road of outer planets and now also Ceres retrograde in Gemini from the 10th. Plus we may all have our buttons pushed thanks to a square between Mercury retro and Pluto Retro in Capricorn on the 1st. Things could take a dramatic turn of events, authority could be challenged and we may also be faced with the usual kinds of reversals, retractions and reneging we get as party of that all trick, no treat retro package.
Aren’t we in Libra season and isn’t it all supposed to be a balancing act? Too much retrograde rain which begins to break up the day of the new Moon in Libra when Pluto shifts forward. By the 18th we’ll all feel the difference when Saturn and Jupiter are also direct.
Two events occur almost simultaneously to ease the backsliding. The new Moon in Libra is important as it falls close to pro-active, feisty Mars. For Librans and Libra-risings out there, this marks the start of your new yearly cycle. And you’ll get that supercharged adrenalin surge to kick-start it. Everyone else – an opportunity to bring balance to your love force but it’s got to be working for you and you have to feel it. Otherwise – it’s not on. Mars cannot fake it. But if the passion is there you can reboot it. Or now have a green light to go look for it.
The second treat on its way is Venus’s entry into Sagittarius on Oct 7. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter so wait until the 18th to feel the full fabulization of Venus in here. Our minds and our hearts open to new experiences when Venus is in Sag. And our willingness to go seek them out is what sets the luck factor in motion. So, take a chance, put yourself out there and watch what happens when you do. All signs can benefit from Venus in here.
The full ‘Hunter’s’ Moon in Aries may seem more like Halloween than the day itself. There’s a sense of tension and a desire that’s rising in us and asking we do something about it. By all means take action if necessary. But not before thinking through the possible outcomes before you do. Acting impulsively, blurting out what’s on our minds may end up having the opposite effect to the one we wanted. Like a spell backfiring. So, think about your intentions and what it is you are trying to achieve. And the best way to accomplish this before taking that step, and this Moon can empower you on your quest.
You can’t hide the feeling!
Nothing stays hidden for long in Scorpio season. Just like the phoenix which is Scorpio’s other symbol, those feelings rise up sooner or later. There’s nothing superficial about a Scorpio. Everything is incredibly deep and intense. Because Scorpio knows that deep down where others are afraid to look is where the gold is buried!
Explore your soul as we head towards Halloween. And those needs and why you feel what you feel. Once Mars – Scorpio’s ancient ruler, arrives in here the day before Halloween, this is an invitation to go deep into the mysteries. It is a time traditionally when the doors between this one and the spirit world are said to open wide. The day itself asks us to make a commitment to follow a path towards something we love as Venus and Juno meet in Sagittarius. This can be for a person, a desire, a goal, a place or even an idea, ideal or experience. But to chart a course towards it. Even if that takes us into the unknown. Hopefully that broomstick is in excellent working order because we all have a long stretch of sky just waiting to be explored. All treat. No more tricks.
In a nutshell: Sticky retrograde snafus make us all feel like it’s all trick and no treat. Don’t worry. By the time the month ends luck and love are the stars we’re all free to aim for. Every witch-way this Halloween month!
