Astrology Transits October 2016

Go back?” he thought. “No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!” So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Finally, after a tumultuous September, a bright spot of optimism surfaces through the gloom and confusion.

The first week of October opens on an optimistic, energetic note. The wheels are turning, engines are firing, deals are being made and the impetus is toward action and forward movement.

I am very glad to let go of September. The Mercury retrograde right on the mid-point of the two eclipses in the eclipse portal was hard to deal with. It was, without a doubt, one of the most confusing, and most upsetting Mercury retrograde periods that I (and many of you) have had to deal with.

The month of October opened with the Sun and Jupiter (the planet of optimism) in the cardinal sign of Libra where they were joined by a new Moon on the first. Mercury joins the Libra party on October 7. Cardinals signs are all about action and starting new things and a new Moon is the beginning of a new 30-day cycle.

The abundance of energy in Libra, the sign of relationships, stirs up all kinds of relationship issues. Many of you will be re-evaluating a current relationship or magically entering a new relationship with lots of promise. Of course, Libra can also show changes in close friendships or business partnerships.

The Full Moon on October 15 is a super Moon that will be conjunct Uranus and the dwarf planet Eris in the sign of Aries. At the same time (through the 18th), Mars is conjunct Pluto and Mercury squares Pluto. Look for volatile, extreme energy during this super Moon. World events and the political scene could reach a boiling point. Earthquakes, high water and extreme weather are another probability.

It would be wise to stay away from any kind of provocation or angry people, especially if you have planets near 23 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Arguments can quickly escalate and neither side will want to compromise.

Because of the many Libra planets, relationships and partnerships can suffer under this full Moon. Delay any relationship “talks” until a time when the energy is less intense and less volatile.

Looking at the bright side of this configuration, it is excellent energy to push you into new ventures. It can bring breakthroughs and new beginnings. Innovation and quirky (but wonderful) new ideas can emerge (Uranus).

Putting an exclamation mark on the theme of moving forward with lots of energy is Mars’ entry into Capricorn on October 2, where it will reside for the next two years. In addition, Pluto in Capricorn is finally out of its retrograde period. If you have been thinking of starting a new venture of any kind this could be the month to start the process.

In summary: Rekindle optimism, move forward, stay safe and begin to implement new techniques and businesses, and enjoy relationships of all kinds.
