Chaos is afoot on October 3 when Uranus is closest to the Earth, so watch out for possible sudden reversals in events, relationships and situations.
Then on October 4 we have a doosie of a New Moon, 11° 56’ Libra at 8:35 pm EST. Although the Sun and Moon are in Libra, this New Moon also has a water emphasis that includes a Stellium in Scorpio (Mercury, N.Node, Saturn, Venus, with Mercury/N.Node/Saturn conjunct, along with a Mars/Venus square.
Remember that New Moons are seeding times for new energies and thought forms and sets the pace for the following two-week period. Although this one has a decidedly conservative tone, we can try and stay positive while introducing small steps forward in the new paradigm. Be careful in relationships for old smoldering issues can be brought to the surface with passion, yet, volatility.
This New Moon also has a Grand Cross to contend with. With both the Sun and Moon opposing Uranus, watch for extreme sensitivity, independence, nervousness, and emotional instability, in yourself and others, while the Pluto/Jupiter opposition emphasizes a procuring of wealth & power in unscrupulous ways.
Luckily things will be tempered a bit when Venus moves into Sagittarius for four weeks. Although traditional moral structures will prevail, this placement will also be spiritually oriented, friendly and sociable.
The next day October 8 Mercury exactly conjoins Saturn; the first of three times over the next six weeks. Look for foresightedness in planning, and hard work, but be careful not to let worry, depression, or obstacles to new ideas take hold.
A good time for networking and social activities takes place on October 14 with a Sun/Moon trine. This is a good time to introduce new ideas and have them approved by those that count.
Then on October 18 we have a Full Moon, Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, 25° 51’ Aires at 7:38 pm EST, where the energies of the Scorpio stellium come to a peak. (N.Node/Saturn/Mercury/Part of Fortune, all conjunct, with Mercury and POF being exact) Although Venus is no longer a part of this, with an Aires Moon in opposition, watch for unbridled independence, and an emotional, impulsive nature. Denoting a time of change, this eclipse will pack a punch because most of the world will be in viewing range.
The following day, October 19, watch for surfacing repressed desires and actions when Mars opposes Neptune.
Then its time to put new projects and contracts on hold when Mercury goes Retrograde on Oct. 21 until Nov. 10
And we end our turbulent month on a positive note on Oct 23 when the Sun moves into Scorpio and trines the Moon in Cancer. Look for emotional optimism in all social encounters and relationships.
