October looks relatively well balanced with no heavy activity between the outer planets. Importantly, Jupiter changes signs this month, moving from Libra where he has been for the past year into Scorpio. This may signify the uncovering of secrets and the unraveling of mysteries over the twelve months. In addition those with water signs prominent in their charts may get a boost of good fortune over the next twelve months. 

There are only two retrograde planets now, indicating that it is easier to move forward. Mercury begins in fair minded Libra moving to sharp Scorpio on the 17th, Venus starts in picky Virgo and moves into beauty loving Libra on the 14th, Mars begins in efficient Virgo and moves into artistic Libra on the 22nd while the Sun moves into passionate Scorpio the same day.

The Full Moon in Aries on the 5th, also known as the Harvest Moon, implies a gathering in of all that has been grown and tended over the past months since the New Moon in Aries in the spring. Look to your reaping and remember to separate the wheat from the chaff. The New Moon in Libra on the 19th suggests seeking balance. Wisely, going forward we can make the best use of what we have harvested during the Full Moon.  

Squares and oppositions present opportunities to use difficult energy in constructive ways. Pluto symbolizes deep, possibly disruptive change; Saturn symbolizes structure and responsibly. For instance, when Venus, symbolizing choices is squared to Saturn/responsibility take a second look at what you might be choosing to accept or trying to avoid. Pluto squares could imply a resistance to change, resulting in difficulties. A Mars/Saturn square may indicate a need to be mindful of your actions. Uranus aspects usually indicate the unexpected.

Days to be mindful and use potentially disruptive or difficult energies constructively include the 8th with a Venus/Saturn square, the 9th with Mercury/Pluto and Sun/Pluto squares, the 11th with a Mars/Saturn square, the 15th with Mercury/Uranus opposition, , the 19th with Sun/Uranus opposition and a New Moon, and the 27th with a Venus/Pluto Square.

Trines imply an ease or facility for whatever action you may choose. Pluto trines can also make for insightful changes; conjunctions bring the combined energy of both planets to bear on whatever you may choose to do.  A conjunction with Jupiter would provide a great boost to anything.

Days to be aware of a potential for positive action or benefits to be gained include the 1st with a Mars/Pluto trine, the third with a Venus/Pluto trine, the 5th with Venus/Mars conjunction and a Full Moon, the 8th with Sun/Mercury conjunction, the 18th with Mercury/Jupiter conjunction, the24th with Mercury/Neptune trine, and the 26th with Sun/Jupiter conjunction.
