Astrological Forecast for October 2017

by Lou Valentino

October is the month when we anticipate cooler temperatures and the Sun setting much earlier. We don't have daylight savings till November 5th.The signs most effected this month are: Aries, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn.

The full Moon on October 5th is at 12 degrees of Aries (2:40PM) EDT. This full Moon is filled with tensions as the Sun conjunct Mercury in Libra oppose the sign of Aries. Add in a few t-squares, as the Sun and Mercury square Pluto in Capricorn while Pluto is at the center squaring both luminaries as well as Mercury.

What does this all mean for the signs of Aries, Libra and Capricorn? Communication breakdown because Aries represents being independent and Libra represents being balanced and working together. Pluto is the transformer and for those with Sun,Moon or rising in any of these signs, you could experience lots of tension in your relationships.The lesson here is to learn from your partners (oppositions) and that will transform the relationships to healthy dialogue rather than shouting at your partner or boss.

Libra is about beauty and rules the marriage house. Too much control in your relationships could lead to divorce or separations. However, if you listen to each other and learn, great fortune will manifest as the part of fortune is filling in the cardinal t-squares at 16 degrees of Cancer. Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Cancer can be the helpers for the other 3 cardinal signs and add great insights. Seek out the sign of Cancer for help.

This combination also creates tensions between government leaders and the public at large. Capricorn rules big business and government and is at the center of this tension (Pluto). Let's face it, American politics these days is filled with lots of tension between the whole government body (Congress) and its people. Until we get to the new Moon on October 19th, tensions in America and around the world continues.

Both of the romantic planets, Mars and Venus, are exactly conjunct at 19 degrees in Virgo on this full Moon day. Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Virgo are a stick ofromantic dynamite ready to go off. Romance is in the air for the sign of Virgo with this combination. Passion and physical force that Virgo normally does not have will be available from October 1st till the 19th when the new Moon starts.

Jupiter takes one year to go through one sign. It will enter the sign of Scorpio on October 10th at 9:20AM EDT. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio you have some extra luck on your side till Jupiter moves into Sagittarius on November 8, 2018.

Jupiter in Scorpio expands experiences and knowledge. This increases the passionate side of Scorpio to go after their hearts desire. Focusing on what really matters. Moderation however does not come easy to those in this sign and must be careful not to become so involved in their work or recreational desires that they lose their balance in all areas of life. Scorpio can go with their gut feelings on things as they have a natural sensitivity/strong intuition about things. They can embrace their emotions during this Jupiter transit and express themselves from a soul level and get positive results.

Themes during this Jupiter transit in Scorpio are: Sex, money and power, as well as death and rebirth. Healing, improving and transforming anything in order to refine and improve. Blessings to all those with Scorpio energies in their natal chart.

Venus will move into Libra on October 14th giving those with Sun, Moon or rising in Libra a wonderful accommodating personality that everyone is attracted too. They may fall in love or deepen an already existing partnership. They may get engaged. Their creativity will increase too produce some fine works of art.

Mercury moves into Scorpio on the 23rd giving more depth and insight into any project that is being worked on. Scorpio is the forensic researcher. Gathering information during this Mercury transit can be effective on any project as it brings answers and conclusions that bring great insight. This energy is effective till Mercury moves into Sagittarius on November 5th.

The new Moon in Libra at 26 degrees on October 19th (3:12PM) EDT puts the spotlight on those born with Sun, Moon or rising in Libra. This new Moon has very little tensions in it compared to the very stressful full Moon chart at the beginning of October.

Remember, the galactic center is around 26 to 27 degrees in Sagittarius so this new Moon in Libra sextiles the galactic center. That's lots of powerful energy available for Libra. Jupiter, the natural ruler of Sagittarius, just moved into Scorpio and conjuncts this new Moon. This can be the time to start a new artistic project or take an existing project and transform it into something more marketable. Don't underestimate this energy as the galactic center is the point of reference where everything manifests from.

If your a musician, artist, photographer or a creator with any form of art, this new Moon offers that unique opportunity to make the connections you need to get your work noticed.
Libra is a sociable sign and this new Moon triggers new opportunities to socialize and be with people for both personal and business relationships. Take advantage of creating new partnerships till November 5th.

Mars moves into Libra on October 22nd and this gives that extra physical energy to those who have Sun, Moon or rising in Libra. Libra has the energy of manifestation until Mars moves into Scorpio on December 9, 2017. Libra has extra sexual/romantic energies at this time also.
The Sun moves into Scorpio on October 23. Happy Birthday to those born under the sign of Scorpio. Just in time to celebrate Halloween on October 31st. Wishing all children and adults the happiness of Halloween with plenty of chocolates to eat.

May those living in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico as well as surrounding islands get all the help they need to rebuild. Blessings to our fellow Americans.
