October is shaping up to be a slightly frightful season as the month is bubbling over with eclipse after eclipse.
On October 4, chatty Mercury joins the sun in Libra, aiding the social sign in matters of communication, so don’t be surprised if your powers of persuasion are dialed up. The following week, romantic Venus moves into pragmatic Virgo, encouraging you to be a little less delulu when it comes to love and adopt a more realistic mindset. If you’ve gotten ahead on cuffing season and are already boo’d up, you may feel more inclined to express your affection through acts of services as that is Virgo’s love language. Pluto ends its retrograde on October 10, giving us one last final push to rethink some of our long-standing habits and fully sit in the seat of our power.
Mars settles into Scorpio on October 12 for six weeks, lighting a fire within us as Mars is the planet of action. The dusty red ball forms a trine with Saturn during its stay in Scorpio, creating a chaotic cosmic environment. Saturn rules discipline and authority, so expect to be speaking with your chest lately and crossing tasks off your to-do list with ease. The combined energy of Mars, Saturn and Scorpio will force you to get s–t together.
Brace yourselves as October 14 ushers in the first eclipse of the month as a new moon in Libra coincides with a solar eclipse, delivering the ultimate clean state. Mercury joins Mars in Libra on October 19, supercharging the South Node, which represents your past life. Be sure to identify where your South Node lies in your chart to truly understand what generational cycles you have to break. On October 22, Mercury shifts into Scorpio on October 22, just in time for the moody sign’s season as the sun slides into Scorpio on October 23. A full moon eclipse in Taurus shakes things up on October 28, closing the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse saga we’ve been experiencing for the past two years. The moon will also team up with intuitive and dreamy Jupiter. Venus and Jupiter will form a trine on Halloween, making the veil between the spiritual and physical realms even thinner, so be on the look out for synchronicities and coincidences as the universe will be making its influence known.
