October astrological cheat sheet

Happier aspects than September, foe show.

SuntrineJupiter Sun trine Jupiter.  Saturday, 10 October 04:37
This influence is about growth and expansiveness. We are more aware of moral issues, and have a desire to improve and learn. Optimism and confidence are basic elements in the energy of this transit. We are more willing to take a risk or two, and we are motivated by a desire to impress others. Enthusiasm runs high, and cooperation comes easy. This is generally a good time to schedule new beginnings in business, education, personal relationships, marriage, creative projects, and so forth, all things equal.

 

Sun trine Neptune. Thursday, 16 October 20:46
We’re at the right place at the right time, probably because our hunches are more likely to be correct and we are “tuned in”. We are inspired, and charitable acts now will serve to lift our spirits like no drug can. A good time for self-improvement programs or efforts. Instinctual judgment is enhanced under this influence.

 

Pluto Sun sextile Pluto. Saturday, 24 October 05:57
Research brings rewards. We benefit now from strategy and keeping things to ourselves for the time being. Opportunities to find or renew something we had lost, and to gain some power are available now.

 

Mars Sun square Mars. Thursday, 29 October 03:55
We have “spring fever” no matter what the season. Driven by a restless desire to do something, without a well-defined goal we tend towards impulsive actions and get ourselves into needless arguments. Our reactions tend to be defensive or competitive. We are not very willing to compromise or negotiate. We are more inclined to injury and accident. Energy output can run high if we choose to focus.

 

Mars Sun conjunct Mercury. Thursday, 5 November 03:02
We are especially sharp, communicative, and open at this time, as our wants are aligned with our thoughts. It’s a favorable time for solving problems. What we say or write now has impact, for better or for worse!

MercuryoppositionUranus Mercury opposite Uranus. Sunday, 4 October 17:05
We are distracted. Our communications get lost or are misunderstood. Disagreements with others are quite possible. It’s not a good time to present an argument or an important idea.

 

MercuryconjunctionSaturn Mercury conjunct Saturn. Thursday, 8 October 02:34
Our ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced now. There could be an increased need for solitude in order to think or work. Travel for business purposes is possible. Thinking in realistic and practical terms, and the need for tangible results for our efforts, is indicated. We might receive serious news or practical advice, or engage in an important conversation. This can mark the start of a new project that involves communications, such as writing, speaking, reporting, etc.

 

MercuryLibra Mercury re-enters Libra. Friday, 9 October 23:45

 

MercurysquarePluto Mercury square Pluto. Saturday, 10 October 14:44
The tendency to read between the lines with a negative slant is strong during this transit, and can easily stir up trouble. Suspiciousness, making mountains out of molehills, telling others only what we want them to know are possible themes. Mental anxiety or troubles could manifest now. We should try to avoid forcing our ideas on others and strive to maintain an open mind. Compulsive thinking is possible. On the other hand, this influence can suggest the ability to engage in deep, penetrating communication.

 

MercurysquarePluto Mercury trine Jupiter. Tuesday, 20 October 17:49
Looking for meaning in mundane affairs, positive thinking, insights, cooperation–these are themes of this influence. Our ideas are big and our intentions noble. We might receive good news or offers now. We prefer to think about the big picture rather than becoming bogged down with details. This transit favors short trips, writing, teaching, studying, submitting applications and forms, accurate diagnoses and observations (all things equal).

 

MercurysquarePluto Mercury trine Neptune. Saturday, 24 October 12:55
Imagination and intuition run high, and are involved in decisions made today. We are in the right place at the right time. We may easily sense the thoughts and feelings of others. We express ourselves with subtle flair. Favors photography, the arts, poetry, fiction, spirituality, advertising, and promotion.

MercurysquarePluto Mercury square Mars. Sunday, 1 November 19:50 (double check time vs. time change!)
Impatience, hastiness, and disagreements characterize this transit. This is an unfavorable time for any kind of meeting, starting a new project, and business proposals. We can be irritable and say all the wrong things. We may be competing for the floor when it comes to expressing our ideas, thoughts, and opinions, making it difficult to engage in healthy dialogue. Mental agitation could dominate. We may stir up controversy with what we say, or how we say it.

 


 

Venusopposition Venus opposition Uranus. Friday, 9 October 18:00
Sudden attractions that may not last come under this influence. Similarly, impulsive attractions to material items that later prove to be unappealing occur now. This is not a good time to start a new relationship nor for any significant financial undertaking. Values and tastes may clash, and group activities may suffer as a result. Impulsive attractions to both people and material goods can lead us astray. Avoid impulse buys at this time. Some instability, restlessness, and rebelliousness are probable in romantic relationships. We may not see eye to eye, and we might be taken off guard by unexpected events. This is not a favorable aspect for beauty treatments because they could have unexpected results. We may struggle with freedom versus intimacy issues at this time. It’s wise to hold off on decision-making with regards to finances and relationships. However, if we can separate rebellion from a sincere need for change, we might open ourselves up to new ways of dealing with others.

 

Venus conjunct Saturn. Tuesday, 13 October 06:51
Affections stabilize and mature. Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. An air of formality is brought to personal and social relationships. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships comes now. A sense of duty may lead us to sacrifice a personal pleasure for a cause or for a loved one; thus we may have to abstain from personal gratification for the time being. Problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface now, and we are ready to face them. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring. Renewed ties to old friends or lovers are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing relationships.

 

Venus sextile Mars. Tuesday, 13 October 14:30
This points to success and ease in close personal interactions. We are passionate and sexy. It is a good time for financial ventures, social life, artistic pursuits, romance, and pleasure. We are now able to take the initiative and to achieve harmony and sexual fulfillment. This influence brings satisfaction to the feelings. We may make permanent ties or relationships that prove to be fruitful and fortunate.

 

VenusLibra Venus enters Libra. Wednesday, 14 October 06:46

 

Venus square Pluto. Thursday, 15 October 13:21
Intense passions, but there’s a hidden agenda. Jealousy and possessiveness are high, in direct proportion to fear of losing partnership. Avoid starting a new relationship at this time, because it can be characterized by these energies.

 

Venus trine Jupiter. Wednesday, 28 October 22:01
Friendliness and optimism characterize this transit. We are big-hearted and our feelings are expansive. The outlook is cheerful and hopeful and the atmosphere is cooperative. This is a sociable, perhaps lazy and self-indulgent, time. We easily find meaning in our social connections. We are more open and trusting of friends and lovers. Integrity and loyalty are favored. A favorable influence for winning people’s trust. Speculation, advertising, publishing, and travel are favored.

 

Venus trine Neptune. Monday, 2 November 18:21
We are more attuned to the world of beauty, the arts, and the imagination. Compassion, harmony, kindness, and openness characterize this transit. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. This can be a “magical” time on a romantic and social level. The pleasures of life are experienced fully. We see the very best in people now, and this eases our interactions and takes the pressure off in personal relationships. Romance is highly favored.

 


 

MarstrineUranus Mars trine Uranus. Sunday, 4 October 21:36
Bursts of energy and creativity. We are willing to take risks, possess personal courage, and can readily effect positive changes in our lives. We are naturally bold and assertive, willing to experiment, and conscious of a need to act independently. Our ideas may be ground-breaking, and at the very least progressive. A strong desire to make things happen is with us now.

 

MarsCancersextileUranusVirgo Mars sextile Saturn. Monday, 12 October 15:51
Work takes on definite shape, and we can see results from our efforts. This gives us a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment. A good time to get and feel organized. Seniority is favored now. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards.

Jupiter/opposition Jupiter ENDS retrograde motion. Tuesday, 13 November 00:34

 

conjunctNeptune Jupiter conjunct Neptune. Monday, 21 December 03:50
Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface now. A spirit of altruism and generosity, making connections with others from a different background, widening our minds through unusual or different experiences, expanded faith, and a feeling that anything is possible if we set our sights high enough are all themes. Practical considerations could take a back seat now. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good. Everyday, ordinary life doesn’t satisfy, as we hunger for a more idealistic life. This can lead to disappointment or strong feelings of discontent and restlessness. We may need a reality check in order to keep our expectations realistic. Caution should be exercised with legal matters, finances, and other worldly, practical affairs, as the tendency to ignore critical details or to take foolish risks runs high.

(Next Jupiter conjunction Neptune is April 15 2022… and it’s quick, not the in and out and over and over and over we’ve had this year.)

No blurb at cafeastrology for this ugly, nasty bad boy, that can be just as bad as Saturn’s opposition to Uranus.  Blech, as they say.
…but hey, I did find a blurb for this ugly-ass aspect over at http://www.astrologyinsights.com/!  ’tain’t bad, neether… here’s what they had to say about it:

“Saturn, the principle of consolidation challenges Pluto, the great force for transformation and change. This is where the rubber meets the road. This square represents a crossroads in the new era that began with September 11, 2001. That fateful day fell in the midst of a powerful Saturn / Pluto opposition that began the summer of 2001 and continued throughout 2002. This square between Saturn and Pluto may be when the U.S. removes its forces from Iraq and we bring a close to this chapter of our history. It also will mark a time when we clearly acknowledge that our world is not the same. We are in a new era, never to return to the old way of doing things. Saturn and Pluto move into their first exact square on November 15 at Libra / Capricorn 2 degrees. They move into exact squares twice in 2010, first on February 1 at Libra / Capricorn 5 degrees and again on August 22 at Libra / Capricorn 3 degrees.”

I’ll clarify that Saturn was in Gemini and Pluto was in Sagittarius back in 2001 when they made that opposition, and I disagree that this was the “start” of a cycle.  Cycles begin with a conjunction, in my opinion.  This particular Saturn-Pluto cycle we’re in currently, began way back in 1982, when Saturn conjuncted Pluto in Libra.  1993, Saturn in Aquarius squared Pluto in Scorpio rolling away from the conjunction, so that was the first dose of Saturn-Pluto unpleasantness.  2001 was the pinnacle of its nastiness, and now we’re in the swirl of the final bit of ick, rolling through this final Saturn-Pluto square—which is sandwiched between and later, acts as a chaser after the dreaded Saturn opposition Uranus—as we approach a new cycle with the next conjunction that happens around about 2020, when Saturn conjuncts Pluto in its earthy home sign of Capricorn… obviously, some of us will have shaken this mortal coil, but if you’re curious, the opposition for the next cycle takes place in 2035 and involves Leo and Aquarius.

!!! and now that I’ve written all this, I locate a purdy darned good page about the cycle, that even lists specific events throughout the various aspects.  Definitely not some half-assed, on-the-fly astrology thang (unlike the blogs and radio spots of some certain individuals who shall remain nameless 😉 ), for real, check this link if you’re interested in Saturn-Pluto cycles:

retrograde(Virgo)oppositionUranus(Pisces) Saturn (back in Virgo) opposite Uranus (in Pisces).  26 April, 2010

A real feeling of restlessness is in the air now. Attempts to assert our individuality, freedom, and originality undermine our feeling of groundedness and security. Yet, we are not satisfied when we conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force us to do something different or free ourselves from old habits. Adjusting our plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of our interactions. It can be challenging to make one particular decision and stick to it.

…and from alabe.com…

This transit emphasizes inequalities in society, the conflicts between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” This may also be a time of severe socio-economic stress and even financial recession. Changes of rule and authority in many fields leave people feeling unstable and insecure. It is a time of frustration, accidents, rigid resistance to change, and attacks on authorities.

Thank our gracious lord that’s over.
