“One of the beautiful things about having seasons is that even when one leaves, we know that it will return.  It will certainly take time, some ups and downs and a great deal of acceptance, but eventually a rough season of life or a season of loss will fade into the distance and be replaced with blossoming flowers and long sunny days, or, depending on your season of choice, a large amount of powder days”―Barbara Platts, journalist in the Aspen Times Weekly, October 7, 2015


There is certainly lots of evidence of the changing seasons here and though it is very beautiful, it does bring a change in mood.  Astrologically, October promises to be a little quieter than the last few months.  After the rather wild month of September with two eclipses and the solstice that is welcome news for most of us.


The first major aspect of the month occurs on October 6-7 when the Sun squares Pluto at 13 degrees of Libra/Capricorn and Mars opposes Neptune at 7 degrees of Virgo/Pisces.  This is a mixed bag of energy.  Sun square Pluto can bring power struggles with those around you, but it can also give you a burst of power and willpower to get something done that you have been putting off.
Mars (action) in Virgo in opposition to Neptune (lack of boundaries) in Pisces can bring confusion and anxiety.  The change of seasons along with this active but unfocused energy can make you and those around you feel edgy, confused, unsettled, irritable and susceptible to sudden outbursts of anger.  Used positively it can assist you by giving you the drive and energy to move toward your goals despite opposition from others. The best remedy is to be mindful of your actions.  Hazy thinking can make you more accident prone.  Because Neptune rules water and Mars brings an abundance of untamed energy, water events (typhoons, 1000 year floods, etc.) may continue to be in the news.   The hazy thinking will be mitigated a little when Mercury turns direct on October 9 at 1 degree Libra.


Relationship issues could be front and center on October 10 when Venus squares Saturn at 2 degrees of Virgo/Sagittarius.  Relationship fears may dominate and you may feel compelled to get to the bottom of a relationship issue that you have been concerned about.  Also be aware that little habits or mannerisms of someone close to you could all of a sudden get on your nerves and you could find yourself becoming too critical or fault finding.  This too shall pass. The good news is that now that Saturn is in Sagittarius it will be a little easier to talk about issues that just seemed too touchy and too emotional when Saturn was retrograding back into Scorpio the last several months.


More relationship dynamics come to the forefront when the Sun opposes Uranus at 19 degrees of Libra/Aries on October 11.  Some of you may decide that a certain relationship just isn’t worth the cost and you may decide to move on, especially since the new moon (beginnings) transits 19 degrees Libra on October 12.  Just remember that just as you are feeling unsettled and restless so is the other person.  It may be best to wait a week or so before any major confrontation.


The energy flows easily on October 13 and 14 when several easy energy paves the way – Mercury sextiles Saturn, Moon sextiles Mars, Pluto and Jupiter; then on October 15 Mars trines Pluto.  If you are trying to solve a relationship (or any other issue) this is a good time to positively work things out.  Just remember that sextiles ease the energy flow, but you have to initiate the action to make them work for you.  Sextiles and trines do not initiate action but do assist in the easy flow of the matters under consideration.


Your thinking and actions may once again become a little muddled on October 16 when Venus opposes Neptune at 7 degrees of Virgo/Pisces.  The old saying about something being too good to be true may apply at this time, especially in matters of the heart.  Those of you who are fighting addictions may find that this is a challenging time.  Do you really need that last piece of chocolate cake?  This can be a very romantic time between lovers.


Watch for entrenched, stubborn thinking when Mercury squares Pluto on October 22nd.  Allow others to have their own viewpoints during this time as small differences of opinion could lead to an uncomfortable standoff.  Use the energy instead to go inward.  You could uncover some very interesting and helpful psychological insights about yourself and others.


A full planetary lineup occurs on October 27 with a Full Moon at  4 degrees Taurus trine Pluto and sextile Neptune, Sun trine Neptune and sextile Pluto.  These are all easy-flowing aspects which could give you the ability to find answers and insights.  You will not feel like getting into the heavy stuff, but rather, to just enjoy life.  The only troublesome aspect is Venus quincunx Uranus, which could bring up old, seemingly unsolvable relationship issues.


October 30 when the Sun is trine Neptune at 7 degrees of Scorpio/Pisces is the perfect day for meditating on where you are in your life and how well you have fulfilled your spiritual and material needs.  You will feel very close to the cosmos at this time so pay attention to dreams, visions, synchronicity and your intuition.


Enjoy this first full month of fall and the beautiful changing seasons.
