October will be a dynamic month filled with energies that may cause us feel pushed and pulled in several different directions at once. Your best bet is to stay loose and go with the flow.
The Sun in Libra triggers the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square until the 13th There is a lot to gain now by allowing yourself to be open to the lessons that present themselves. Resisting inevitable change will only make things more difficult. The first part of the month may be especially intense, as circumstances can force us to look backward and review the past. Some previously hidden information could come to light that compels us to rework our plans. We may be looking back over the past six months and summing up the lessons we have learned, especially those that have to do with partnerships. At the same time, we may be nurturing some exciting new ideas, but that can be frustrating now. Your best strategy is to be patient and realize that setbacks are there to help you address issues that can hinder future success. Questions of fairness are likely to arise when dealing with partnerships or friendships.
Mercury will be retrograde from the 4th to the 25th. This, too, can prompt a revisiting of past relationships that yields valuable information. Partnerships, shared resources, sex, and equality are themes that could emerge. It won’t be advisable to jump into a new relationship. It’s possible that a partner from the past could resurface in order to take care of unfinished business. This is a time to assess what arises so that you can be a better partner and attract the right person in the future.
The first ten days of the month can have everyone feeling pretty fired up. That’s because of a Grand Trine involving Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo, and Uranus in Aries. These planets are known for vitality and a zest for life; but in fire signs, they offer even higher amounts of energy and optimism. This can be an inspiring time when we are encouraged to dream big and really go for it. You’ll have plenty of energy! Unconventional ideas are particularly supported.
Keep in mind that because Mercury is retrograde, however, it will likely be another month before we can really move forward with new plans. In the meantime, this is an excellent time for revamping those plans that had been initiated before the retrograde began. The excitement and confidence generated by the Grand Trine should be harnessed and channeled into drawing up plans concerning ideas that come to you. Then, once the retrograde has passed next month, you’ll be ready to go.
Two eclipses add to this month’s powerful energies. We’ll first experience a Lunar Eclipse in Aries on that 8th that will involve Uranus and the North Node. With the Moon in Aries, conjunct Uranus, and the Sun in Libra, conjunct the North Node, this eclipse is directing us toward long-term changes. Lunar Eclipses “bring to light” things that have been hidden so that we can see what needs to change in our lives. With the Moon . . . . . Read the Full Column!

Every month on the day of the NEW MOON, the energy in the atmosphere opens to receive new seeds. For centuries, farmers have used the New Moon cycles for planting their crops. We can use this same potent energy for planting dreams and goals of what we want to manifest in our lives. To use a New Moon POWER DAY, simply write down a maximum of ten wishes you would like to see manifest in your life.
Because this month’s New Moon occurs in SCORPIO, you may want to include wishes concerning one or more of the following categories on your list that are ruled by that sign: transformation, power, strength, courage, integrity, awareness of the difference between taking the high road and taking the low road, debt, jealousy, revenge, the willingness to discard the lower aspects of one’s own emotional nature and practice forgiveness.
“I want to easily find myself forgiving others in a way that is empowering and healing for me”
“I want the burden of debt easily lifted from me”
“I want to easily find myself choosing the high road that is best for me in every area of my life”
“I want to easily find myself filled with the courage to make those changes in my life that are in my overall best interest.”
