This is quite a week! It has only taken me a week to sit still to write this! Nonetheless, I am on time and in rhythm with the planets . The planets are just shifting now in the sky with four planets stationing direct in the month of October. This week, we approach a very powerful, fiery, potent, and conclusive Full Moon in Aries on October 20, 2021!
Simply put, four planets stationed direct in the month of October and encouraged us all to reassess our strategies, values, and cosmic calls to action! Pluto, the planet of regeneration and metamorphosis, stationed direct on October 6, 2021 at 24 degrees and 19 minutes of the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. This station was VERY potent and on the day of the New Moon in Libra.
We feel the buildup of the planetary stations of outer planets five days before and five days afterwards. It emphasizes the energy of the planet — often in an extreme manner. Pluto rules death, money, debt, intimacy, power, healing, and transformation.
A lot of powerful shifts and changes have occurred since the end of September when Mercury, the planet of the mind, stationed retrograde at 25 degrees of the Cardinal air sign of Libra. When Mercury retrograded, all of the planets were retrograde for a bit, and this was quite a retrograde. On October 4, 2021, the hashtag of the world was the #internetisdown. It brings home how frightening it is that so many connections in life and business are virtual and through third party platforms.
Perhaps #ourconnectionisdown is more appropriate. Since that time period, four planets have stationed direct, and it is hard to process all at once when so four planets station in just one month, and that is a big deal.
This is great news for moving ahead with your goals and putting them into action in a more seamless manner! You may feel like you are hazy but waking up and really driven to bring your work and life to a whole new level! Pluto stationed direct on October 6th, and this helps you to empower yourself in your healing and and transformation. Pluto stationed direct at 24 degrees and 19 minutes of the Cardinal sign of Capricorn, and this set off the Saturn/Pluto conjunction from 1/12/20 that occurred at 22 degrees of Capricorn and changed the world forever.
Think back on all of the work that you have done to heal and empower yourself. What are the tools you can use now to heal yourself and others? What do you need to release and purge?
Saturn, the planet of structure, limits, and responsibility was also a key player of last year in the epoch of Capricorn and transited on and off by the world axis in 2020 as it transited in the last degrees of the the sign of Capricorn, which is the sign it rules in modern Astrology.
This has been a tremendously sad time; but, there is a lot of hope for building new community and healing in new ways as we move ahead. Saturn stationed direct on October 10, 2021 at 6 degrees and 52 minutes of the fixed Air sign of Aquarius. Time to structure the future with limitless possibility to learn, teach, and exceed!
Saturn and Jupiter both met up at 0 degrees of Aquarius on the Winter Solstice of 2020 and ushered in the New Age of Aquarius. Saturn transits in Aquarius until March 7, 2023 and invites us all to build new friendships, connections, and groups. It is also time recommit to the friendships and partnerships that really matter to you and put limits on those that are not on the same vibration.
The New Age of Aquarius is a time of raising consciousness. It is a time of trying to bridge technology and isolation with community and use it to build wishes and goals that were never possible before. How can we change this to bring heart to something that seems so cold?
Jupiter, the planet of abundance, expansion, and good luck, stationed direct on October 17, 2021 at 10:30 pm EDT at 22 degrees and 20 minutes of Aquarius, and you feel that energy five days before and five days afterwards. Jupiter represents your belief systems; as well as your ability to be positive and magnetize good fortune. It also represents higher learning, wisdom, travel, promotion, and publicity.
Mercury, the planet of communication, stationed direct on October 18, 2021 at 10 degrees and 8 minutes of the Cardinal air sign of Libra. Both Aquarius and Libra are very social signs. Aquarius is an air sign centered on friendships, networking, and groups.
Libra is a sign very focused on relationships of all kinds; as well as justice. Mercury has been transiting in the sign of Libra since August 30, 2021, and a huge focus this remainder of the year is on relationships, partnerships, and friendships. Mercury will exit Libra on November 5, 2021; but, now that it is direct, it is a great time for partnering with others professionally, socially, and romantically. Jupiter in Aquarius is a great time for building new social and professional connections. Keep in mind that Venus, which rules the sign of Libra, retrogrades on December 19, 2021 at 26 degrees and 29 minutes of Capricorn. This directly triggers where
Pluto stationed retrograde on April 27, 2021 at 26 degrees of Capricorn. Venus represents your values, how you earn income, and how relate to others. We can not heal and rebuild without relying on connections — whether they are new, old, or both. Venus remains in Capricorn until March 7, 2022, and it is a time of reassessing your commitments, professional goals, and values. It triggers the Saturn in Capricorn story from late December of 2017 through December of 2020 and helps to bring new form to your goals and hard work.
Last but certainly not least is the Full Moon that occurs on October 20, 2021 at 27 degrees and 26 minutes of the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries. Fire!
Passion, rage, enthusiasm, and a call to release your anger. This full moon sets off the Mars retrograde period from fall of last year when Mars retrograded at 28 degrees of Aries on September 9, 2020 and stationed direct on November 14, 2020 at 15 degrees of Aries. Mars transited in Aries for half of 2020, and it was retrograde and in its shadow in the fall of last year, in which time it was very difficult to move ahead.
This full moon is a time to let go of the rage that is so rampant in a time that is so sad. Now is a time where you can heal through friendships and communication. Learning alternative ways of thinking, different types of healing modalities, and different ways to deal with impatience and anger in of huge collective loss. The Sun is conjunct Mars, and Mars is just a degree off from the world point at 23 degrees of Libra and is triggering the Saturn/Pluto conjunction from January of 2020. Mercury opposes Chiron, the wounded healer and brings up the wounds as we release the pain and frustration.
There is a lot of conflict in the sky with this full moon. You can expect that people will be fired up and can be quick to anger. Try to do some way to cleanse the energy, as Pluto is strongly a part of this Full Moon dynamic and opportune for release. Fill a bowl of salt on your desk or in an area where you spend a lot of time in your house.
This helps to release others’ energy and your own fears. Burn palo santo, sage, or incense to inspire that creative stagnation and charge it up with renewal and passion. The Sun and Mars form a challenging square to Pluto, the planet of power struggles and transcendence; Pluto squares Eris, the goddess of discord and the sister of Mars; not to mention the Moon in Aries. This combustible lineup is known as a T-square and can feel very annoying and temporarily restrictive as you strive to propel.
Yet, it is great for doing healing work, purging, releasing, doing rituals, and moving ahead with action to back up your goals and words! This Full moon in Libra also helps to bring fruition all of the hard work that you have done since 2020. Zoom ahead and let go! You are on your way. Jupiter transits in Aquarius through December 29, 2021, and then it re-enters Pisces where it will be on and off in 2022. Time to brush up on your marketing skills, how your business is assimilating to a new technological revolution, and how you want to evolve your connection to all, and all is one.
