Under the Witchy October Skies
Astrology for October, 2021
We have some transitional astrology for the month of October, with the cosmos providing exciting movement to keep life interesting. There is plenty of finalizing, balancing, motivation, and action this month, so be ready to be on your toes!
We begin October in the Air sign of Libra with six planets in retrograde, including Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. This will definitely make you feel that the energy is stuck or, at the very least, slowed. You may be trying to move in a direction, but nothing is happening fast. You will also have to do a lot of preparation work, which will force you to patiently wait. However, you best use this time wisely because things are about to speed up, and you need to be ready.
The New Moon in Libra
Everything begins to move with the New Moon in Libra on Wednesday, October 6, during the Sign of Libra. This double Libra combined with the Moon’s relationship with Mercury is a call to action. The Libra energy will bring to the surface an intense need for clear speech and communication. It will also highlight a need for harmony and balance. Prepare to resolve hidden or obvious conflicts or end the relationship entirely.
Pluto also goes direct this day, ending a karmic review and unconscious churning that started on April 27, 2021.
On October 7, we have a Mars and Sun conjunction which will also bring robust and motivational energy. But this event will also force you to face fears. You may find that the reasons you have not pushed forward before were actually hidden fears kept deep below the surface. In turn, you will be called to be brave and challenge yourself in a new way. Also, be prepared for a range of intense emotions making thins even more complex.
A good look in the mirror
Three additional planets, including Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn, will all station Direct between the 11th and the 18th. Jupiter and Saturn have all been in retrograde since the Spring and during this time, we have been forced to reflect and reassess our financial, career, and success goals and how they align with our personal values and belief systems. If you are in a situation where you must question your ideologies and face your conscious and unconscious blocks, be prepared.
If you did the work and listened to your guidance, your personal development commitments are about to pay off as we have a powerful Full Moon in Aries on Wednesday, October 20. This will birth any new projects you have been focused on. This Full Moon is powerful for movement and depending on the astrology of your personal natal chart, you could find that you are opening a new chapter of your life. Aries is the warrior who conquers and shows no mercy or fear, so harness that energy as best you can.
The arrival of Scorpio
By the 22nd, we move into watery Scorpio Season, which emphasizes deep and personal emotions, impulse, and the cycle of death and rebirth. Mystical, sensual, and savage Scorpio is also a time for love, creativity, and sexuality.
Scorpio is the only Sign that could host Halloween, Samhain, and the Day of the Dead. This is when the veil is the thinnest between the spirit world and ours.
The connection to our ancestors and spirit helpers will increase. Play and morph into someone else (or a hidden part of ourselves) through costume. The strong influence of Venus during this time means that love will be in the air. Enjoy the energy!
