Powerful full moon in Aries: Bridge to change


This month's full moon falls at 20 degrees of Aries and peaks on October 13,at 5:08PM, EDT. The full moon in Aries and the Sun (20 degrees of Libra) form an exact t-square to Pluto. A T-square combines the energies of 3 planets, and creates an opening for change, but it is not an easy aspect. The moon also squares Saturn. This gives us a Pluto-Saturn-Moon type of energy which relates to change, transformation and for some this may activate deep seated fears, anxieties and things can culminate at this time one way or another.

Moon-Pluto energy can be a bridge to changing something, and it can be in any area of your life, depending on what this moon is aspecting in your personal chart. At times like this some things end, and some things can come together and complete such as job opportunities, work projects or any number of other situations you may be dealing with. It is not all negative by a long shot but this is not easy energy to deal with and can result in compulsive feelings, emotions and actions if you don't make a conscious effort to channel this energy into something positive and beneficial. It would be far better at this time to take a pro-active approach to your life rather than be driven by fear, the unknown, anxiety or compulsive or neurotic behavior.

On the other hand, it can give you the insight to go within and find out where you really stand on an issue and how you feel. Self analysis is very common with a moon like this, as is therapy which could also be beneficial. Something as simple as a talk with a good friend might be a positive step in the right directions. If something is bothering you seek out people who can help you deal with issues in a positive manner

Pluto deals with the deep and dark undercurrents and the darker side of emotions. It rules sex and frequently deals with money, control, manipulation, guilt, fear, emotional power struggles, jealousy or that which is buried deep inside. It can also bring up issues connected with the past, or long ago or forgotten experiences which may resurface now. New information can be uncovered as well as Pluto typically reveals something previously unknown.

Moon- Saturn transits deal with work and responsibility. This is a tiring transit and prone to negativity. The upside is a clear look at reality and responsibility. The rose colored glasses may come off.

Depending on your overall emotional state, some may feel lonely, unloved, and a powerful tendency to look at the worst side of things, or the most negative potential. The best thing to do if you feel like this is to do nothing, as this transit is fleeting and will pass shortly.

Saturn deals with work, responsibilities, the past, limitations, as well as the structures that give us a life, a job, and a place or status in the world.

The Sun's square to Pluto is another significant transit as this too can reveal new information, or be a harbinger of change and transformation. Things and situations can break down, to be rebuilt or transformed in a better way or toward a more positive situation.  At times this can be a feeling of forced change or a feeling that you have no choice but to go in a certain direction. Close relationships can become intense, and some types can use manipulation and guilt to get what they want. It is far better to take charge of your life and emotions and avoid these types of emotional power plays.

Venus opposes Uranus on October 12, and this become part of the full moon energy as well. We can expect unexpected if not shocking events or situations to come to light at this time. This does not have to be bad, and can even be exciting for some. Areas most likely affected would be money, finance, or relationships. Some relationships will end, especially those tottering on the edge, and yet others will begin. Uranus transits however can be fleeting and can seem like a powerful connection may fade away after this transit is gone.

On the world stage Moon-Pluto transits deal with corruption, propaganda, violence and those who push their will on others, and will likely uncover new information that will involve the media. Pluto rules oil, corruption, bullies, the media, and as the Moon is involved we could hear of women's issues. This Moon squares Mercury and Pluto in the US (Sibly) chart, which deals with information, young people, and the 8th house deals with death and transformation as well as finance and international finance.
Venus-Uranus will bring unexpected news, news of scandals, issues concerning women, relationships and we could see market swings or financial revelations..

October 2019: Approaching the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of 2020


October begins with a  dramatic transit as Venus squares Pluto October 1. This is particularity intense as Pluto turns direct in the early morning hours of October 3. Venus-Pluto relates to obsessions, changes in relationships and money, and new information can be revealed in our personal lives and in the world.

Pluto's direct motion often coincides major world events and change in our own lives if this is aspecting something in your personal chart. Pluto's direct motion brings things to the surface that have been bubbling under for a long time. Pluto rules degeneration, decay and ultimately the rebuilding of something that must rise from the ashes of what Pluto has destroyed. Look for many things to move ahead now, especially legal and financial matters.

We are rapidly moving toward the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January 2020, that will change our world. This transit will affect us all, especially those  with Cardinal planets (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra) at 21-23 degrees. This aspect will greatly affect the US natal chart, and I expect we will find ourselves in the greatest Constitutional crisis anyone has seen that is alive today. This will affect the charts of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump specifically. It will not however, be limited to either of these parties or the US, as we will see global and personal change on many levels. Saturn-Puto transits tend to bring about changes on very deep and profound level as anyone who has experienced a transit like this can attest to. Pluto destroys to rebuild from the ashes.

Mars enters Libra October 4. Action changes as Mars moves to the sign where it is considered at its detriment. A planet in the sign of its detriment tends to behave badly so to speak, and the date to watch is October 27, as Mars squares Saturn. This co-insides with a volatile new moon in Scorpio. Mars square Saturn will end some relationships if they are tottering on the edge. Otherwise, this can be a frustrating time when we become aware of personal limitations. Otherwise, Mars in Libra rules the 7th house of marriage, partnerships and courts. Mars Libra can act out in a passive aggressive manner and many people will react to this energy by trying to keep the peace rather than face a confrontation. October will be a month of marriage and divorce, new relationships beginning and others ending.

October 7, Mercury opposes Uranus and the Sun squares Saturn. Mercury-Uranus is indicative of sudden and unexpected events and news on both a personal and collective level. Watch for accidents, and we could hear of internet/communication issues, plane crashes, accidents or injury and earth related issues. Sun square Saturn is a day most are focused on responsibilities and with Saturn involved it will be a draining day, but accomplishment is possible. Look for major news events on or around this day.

October 8, Venus enters Scorpio, the first of the fast moving planets to enter this sign. As each of the personal planets enter Scorpio they will oppose Uranus in Taurus. Venus is considered at a disadvantage in this sign but nevertheless can be positive for water signs. Love energy becomes more intense in nature for the next four weeks.

October 12, Venus opposes Uranus. This opposition creates unexpected events and change in love and money. Look for unexpected events to occur, and this falls on the eve of the powerful full moon in Aries, making this part of the full moon energy.

October 13, the full moon in Aries peaks at 5:08 PM, EST and will be one of the most powerful this year. Aries rules the first house of self, and self interests will be front and center. New information can be revealed. This moon squares Pluto and Saturn, creating change and/or regeneration of existing conditions. Some things will end at this time, to begin anew. As Venus opposes Uranus we can expect sudden and unpredictable events concerning love and money/finance. This will be a powerful and volatile if not violent time on the world stage. In the US we can expect to hear news about finance, corruption and it could be a pivotal time for the impeachment hearings in Congress.

October 14, the Sun squares Pluto. Look out for power struggles and this is another transit of change, often with a feeling of forced change. Interactions with others can be intense and some things may end.

October 23, the Sun enters the fixed sign of Scorpio. This is the season where the weather typically changes and we move toward winter. With the Sun's entrance into Scorpio we now have 3 fast moving planets, or a stellium in the sign that rules the 8th house of change and transformation. Welcome to the Scorpio season!

October 27, the new moon falls at 4 degrees of Scorpio. Our concerns will be connected to 8th house matters: Money, debt, change, transformation, sex and secrets. This Moon opposes Uranus, along with the Sun. We can expected unexpected events, especially connected with love, relationships and finance. Mars squares Saturn, and this can seem like a frustrating few days when we are reminded of what our limitations are. If this is how you feel, wait a few days and this energy will soon pass.

You will be affected by this to a greater degree if you were born in the early degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo or have planets in these signs at 4-5 degrees. The Sun and Moon are conjunct, or together opposing Uranus at 5 degrees of Taurus. We can expect sudden and unexpected events with this transit that can involve women, money, sex and secrets, and new information suddenly revealed. Many people will break away from something (or someone) to begin or start something new. Look for world events concerning money, earth disasters, accidents, volatility, information uncovered.

October 31, Mercury turns retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio. This will be the final retrograde of the year, and it won't turn direct until November 20, at 11 degrees of Scorpio. Scorpio is the most intense of signs and look for issues connected with money, change and transformation, sex, secrets and debt. Retrograde Mercury is a time for re-doing and re-considering what we have done and learned. It is not the time to start new projects, get married or buy high ticket items.

Happy Halloween!!
