Astrological Forecast for October 2019

by Lou Valentino

October is here and showing no signs of cooler temperatures for the first week. We could see the 80’s return. But we know that the cooler temperatures are around the corner and some states experiencing EEE from mosquitoes want the first frost.

Last month we saw Saturn station direct and on October 3rd, Pluto stations direct at 20 degrees very early in the morning. It will take till January 23, 2020 for Pluto to return to the original 23 degrees where it stationed retrograde on April 24, 2019.

Saturn and Pluto are getting closer and closer and this spells power struggles for the sign of Capricorn. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Capricorn you are reaping what you have sown over the last 29 years. This could mean letting go of some of your ambitions and spending more time resting up and being with family.

Mercury will enter Scorpio on October 3rd also early in the morning and the deep waters of Scorpio start to percolate. Venus will enter Scorpio on October 8th. If you have Scorpio signatures in your chart it is time to research any subject, you are looking into. This combination of Mercury/Venus in Scorpio is perfect for those in school who must investigate a subject.

The government (Capricorn) will be putting in overtime with continued investigations and by the time Pluto conjuncts Saturn in January, the Democratic Party may take a huge step back and put most of their focus on the election of 2020 in November. Why waste time when you can just vote your opponent out. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction in January of 2020 will overhaul BOTH parties. Let’s see what happens.

Mars moves into the peace-loving sign of Libra on October 4th till November 19th. This gives physical energy to those with Sun, Moon or rising in Libra. Libra wants peace and Mars wants war. Mars is in its Detriment in Libra which means it doesn’t feel comfortable. How can the most peace-loving negotiating sign in the zodiac (Libra) feel comfortable fighting all the time (Mars).

Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Libra can channel their increased energies into their art works or if they are a lawyer find the balance and win that court case. Partnerships of all kinds will go through a balancing act, but things could get hot and tempers can fly with this combination.

Scorpio starts to turn on the passion in their love life when Venus enters Scorpio with the help of Pluto stationing direct, as well as Mercury in Scorpio. Romance can be hot as well as attracting it if you are a Scorpio and single. Don’t go so deep however that you end up in a black hole of hidden desires that entangle you into troubles for the soul. Renunciation is also a possibility. Letting go of anything in your life that is not working. Transformation is calling you.

The full Moon is in Aries at 20 degrees (5:08PM EST) on October 13th, the sign of Aries is at a crossroads with others. Aries is one of the signs in the zodiac that has a hard time finding compromise with others.

The tensions are high so if you have Sun, Moon or rising in Aries you are learning some hard lessons about relationships. Why is this so? The full Moon is square to a Pluto/Saturn conjunction which is square to the Sun. A T-square of explosive tensions. You can be argumentative if you don’t breathe deeply and find some time to be alone from October 13th till October 27th. Struggles with authority figures including one’s father.

It would be wise to spend time away from loved ones or people you work with to face deep hidden issues/karma that you need to heal, or you may project these deep hidden issues onto those around you. You’re looking for a fight and its best to surrender to a higher energy of acceptance. This will create balance in the T-square.

President Trump needs to watch his temper getting out of control, so it does not affect his health. Let his legal team do all the stressing. I just saw his attorney on Fox really heated up. This is an introduction to the legal tensions in October in politics.

The Sun moves into Scorpio on October 23rd at 1:20PM EST and now we have Mercury, Venus and the Sun in Scorpio. Happy Birthday to the sign of Scorpio.

If that’s not enough, the new Moon is in Scorpio on October 27th at 4 degrees (11:39PM EST). Halloween is around the corner on the 31st. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio, the new Moon chart shows 2 T-Squares involving Mars, the classical ruler of Scorpio and Pluto the modern ruler.

Financial balance. Uranus is at 4 degrees in Taurus opposing the Sun and Moon in Scorpio. Taurus is about gains and Scorpio is about loss. This is the perfect time to check up on financial debt that has been overlooked for a while. It also could be a sudden and unexpected inheritance or some major shift in your investment portfolio.

Either way, financial matters will be highlighted from October 27th till November 12th for the those with Scorpio or Taurus energies in their charts.

Scorpio and Taurus want new beginnings. Letting go of old things and habits can be done with the tensions of this new Moon chart. Look to the signs of Cancer and Capricorn for advice.

Mercury stations retrograde on the last day of October 31st early in the morning at 11:41AM EST. Mercury will station retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio. It will station on November 20th at 11 degrees of Scorpio.

If you have planets in Scorpio within 11 to 27 degrees, you are looking deeply into how your energy operates. A very close look at yourself and lord knows most humans do not want to look at their own stuff these days.

The good news, Scorpio has an opportunity to gain in spiritual growth and clear out any obstacles that are in the way of improving their life. Feeling stuck is not fun but it’s a great time to make adjustments so the outcome will be more balanced with more prosperity and joy to shine through when Mercury is out of its shadow.

Mercury will not be out of its shadow, return to the degree it started its retrogradation, till December 7th, 2019. That is the day that Mercury is completely out of its Mercury retrograde period.

This is very helpful for the American/China trade deal to have Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto all in direct motion by December 7th.

Wishing everyone a transformational October filled with goblins and ghosts as Mercury turns retrograde on Halloween. Keep those you love close to you as we celebrate Halloween.
