ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 19-25 2020.




MONDAY OCT 19.

This week begins with the Moon in freedom loving and truth seeking Sagittarius, emphasizing broadening horizons, learning, expansion, travel, and people and places at a distance or from other cultures. With A New Moon last Fri in partnership focused Libra, big things are happening in tandem with others, and a new chapter is beginning here. With the Moon in Sagittarius today in trine to Chiron in Aries, and going on to trine Mars Rx in Aries, there is a lot of courage and enthusiasm about taking some decisive action around something involving expanding our worlds somehow. Sagittarius is truth seeking and being honest and authentic in ourselves can require a lot of courage. With the Mars/Jupiter square exact today, today can represent a peak moment and actions taken now can mark a critical turning point. There’s a lot of courage and bravery involved in this. The Moon goes on to square Venus in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces, and this can increase sensitivity to criticism or highlight anxieties around details about the mounting things we may have to take care of and address. On the one hand, it could be that speaking the truth, being true to ourselves, and being/living authentically can come with a lot of criticism, risk, and vulnerability, hence the requirement of courage. There can also be some vague anxieties, uncertainties, and vulnerabilities around buggy little problems and nit picky issues, but a steady determination will help tackle things one at a time.


TUESDAY OCT 20.

Today see’s the Moon in Sagittarius squaring Venus in Virgo, and Neptune in Pisces, and trine Mars in Aries. This can highlight a need to problem solve. Minor lunar aspects to Mercury Rx in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus in the afternoon emphasize a need to improvise around challenges, fuckery, and obstacles. Later, a lunar sextile to the Sun in Libra suggests that teamwork makes the dream work. Others can come through for us some how, or working with others can be a key to getting around some irritating obstacles. There’s definitely determination, and this energy is determined to keep it’s head up amidst challenges because it’s focused on the goal. The Moon will enter serious Capricorn tomorrow which will shift the emphasis on navigating the challenges ahead, knuckling down, making a big push towards a goal in true mountain goat fashion. This evening can end on a somewhat anxious, but passionate, enthusiastic, and determined note. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.


WED OCT 21.

Today begins with the Moon in serious Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus, and sextile Mercury in Scorpio. This can see some thinking outside the box, a weird "focused restlessness",  quirky peevishness, as well as some behind the scenes agreements or negotiations. A lunar square to Chiron suggests we may be getting ourselves or others out of a tight spot, or tacking a series of "must do's", and there can be some vulnerability here as we gather steam for a series of tasks in preparation for incoming shifts. Certain negotiations may be under the radar for the time being. There is also simultaneously a concerted effort to bring the truth to light. In either case, this is a serious and determined energy, and some radical, or at least highly unusual or unorthodox actions may be taken in order to push through an agenda or make something happen. These can be some pretty intense vibes, and it can feel like we are up against a lot, or at least, could feel very challenged. But the stoic Capricorn stellium, combined with Venus in Virgo, can handle this with the precision of a surgeon, and has the will, determination, patience, and thoroughness to carry it through.


THURSDAY OCT 22.

The Sun enters do or die Scorpio today at 4 PM PST, adding a certain grit and bite to the mathscape. Today we see the Moon in Capricorn trine Venus in problem solving Virgo, square Mars in action oriented Aries, and conjunct Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn as well. These are some intense configurations. The Sun takes off it’s kid gloves in Scorpio and certain realities become harder to brush off or ignore. The Sun here highlights what has been buried or occulted. With Mercury also in Scorpio opposite Uranus this can highlight both the emergence of buried truths, as well as the attempts to keep them hidden. It can also underscore the need to go around and innovate through various obstacles and achieve certain things in less direct ways, along with somewhat clandestine conversations, negotiations, and dealings. Everything is very outside of the box right now and we could be in some pretty unconventional and weird terrain. This will require equally weird adaptations. This weekend can bring some shocks and surprises, and a lot of rebelliousness.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 12-18 2020

 



MON OCT 12.

We begin this week with the Moon in playful, creative, and fun seeking Leo, making a sextile to the Sun in partnership oriented Libra in the early morning hours. This adorable mash up is emboldened by a lunar trine to Mars Rx in assertive Aries, and with the Sun in Libra making intense squares to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, while opposite Mars in Aries, there’s certainly initiatives in the works with others, and much to play for. Mercury in penetrating Scorpio sextile to Venus in detail oriented Virgo can suggest that pleasant conversations can come easily, but there could be one particular ongoing conversation that consumes most of our attention, and in a pleasant and somewhat invigorating way, there is a lot to assimilate and unpack here, and some pretty radical changes and transformations going on that are making quite an impact. Mercury will station retrograde tomorrow at 6:05 PM PST, to backtrack through Scorpio, holding it’s position a while longer in opposition to unconventional Uranus. Interpersonally, and even commercially, this can be a very interesting, even radical time, with some quite unprecedented situations unfolding. On a broad scale, this can see a lot of investigative probing force some moments of reckoning, with some weird reveals and facts that need to be faced, looked in the eye and accepted, in the name of common sense. With Venus and Jupiter both trine in realistic Earth signs, high hopes are tempered by realism, and this can result in some very fortunate developments unfolding, realistic idealism is the key. The Moon enters Virgo late evening to accentuate the very physical element of Earth. Under the Virgo lunation it can feel good to get organized, grounded. It can feel pleasant to correct, eliminate, cleanse, and purify the extraneous bullshit from the micro and macro systems. 


TUES OCT 13.

Today see’s the Moon in healing and simplifying Virgo, and we can be in for some pleasant surprises, or some unexpected but clarifying reveals, with the Moon in trine to Uranus in common sense Taurus, and sextile to Mercury in Scorpio. Minor lunar aspects to Saturn in Pluto in the early part of the day suggest we may need to express or clarify a boundary or share information that makes things more clear for someone else. It may feel good to do so, and a lunar trine to Jupiter in Capricorn can help to bring us more in alignment with our own integrity. It's a no bullshit type of vibe. It can limit options somewhat, but this also provides the ability to focus more intently on a much desired goal.  A lunar opposition to Neptune throughout today suggests that such clarity is needed, as there can be some confusion, perhaps simply missing information that has made a scenario or person hard to read. “You can’t please all the people all of the time” is another proverb that comes to mind when I view these configurations, but you can be more true to yourself, and doing so can have an overall beneficial impact long term. With Mercury stationing retrograde in Scorpio tonight at 6:05 PM PST, much of what is going on is under the surface, low key, or privy to only certain close confidantes. It can take quite a while actually for all of this to burst out on to the scene or be made known to all and sundry in any kind of obvious way. It could take until the beginning of December in fact, when Mercury enters blatantly honest, and truth seeking Sagittarius and what’s been cooking in the shadows of backrooms comes forth and begins making it’s results fully apparent. In the mean time, things are rather modest and low key, and much is still in the planning stages. This Mercury retrograde can help slow things down enough to work out the kinks of what is in fact, quite a lot of radical changes. It can feel like we are up against a lot, but simultaneously there is a lot of hope and a sturdy realism that provides the determination required to achieve our ends. Today’s energy is impressive in it’s ability to navigate a massive sea change and what may even be a radical upheaval with dignity and poise. The Moon/Venus conjunction suggests it pays to simplify, purify, organize, clarify, focus, improve, perfect, cleanse, and eliminate. This can apply interpersonally, as regards to relationships, social and personal, but can just as easily apply to the environment, personal possessions, money, and how we care for our body/personal appearance (Venus). This can be a time of preparation for some major revisions and reorganizations.


WED OCT 14.

This morning see’s the Moon in Virgo conjunct Venus, trine Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn, and opposite Neptune. There is a lot of hope and idealism here, but it is a realistic hope, that is willing to put in the work to make things happen. A lot of resilience present in these configurations. A minor tense aspect between the Moon and Uranus emphasizes the general undercurrent of “holy fuck these are some radical shifts”, and can see some actions taken towards ^that end^. The lunar trine to the Capricorn stellium (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto), suggests a day that can represent somewhat of a turning point, and there can be a push towards completing a task or a process. Later this evening see’s the Moon enter partnership oriented Libra to oppose Chiron, which can see some sensitivity or subtle insecurity present, but also compassion. The Libra lunation can see mild frustrations or sensitivities that could seem somewhat magnified or overinflated. Equally though, there could be a lot of hope, energy and excitement.


THURS OCT 15.

This morning see’s the Moon in Libra, putting a spotlight on relationships, opposite Chiron. With Venus in anxious Virgo trine Jupiter and Uranus, then later, Pluto, things can feel unorthodox and larger than life right now. The Moon forms an opposition to Mars as well in the afternoon. It’s possible to feel both pleasantly challenged and overwhelmed right now, but the stellium in Capricorn syncing up with Venus is rock solid, sturdy, and calm. With Mercury in Scorpio having just stationed retrograde and holding an opposition to Uranus, things can be rather cognitively intense, with various shocks and revelations. It can be a lot to keep up with, but Mars Rx in Aries squaring Jupiter and Pluto has sheer will power and determination to drive the whole thing in a steady, if obsessed direction. With both the Moon and Sun in opposition to Mars now, this could involve relations and working together with others some how. The Sun/Pluto square is exact today at 22 degrees Libra, so some pretty intense negotiations and agreements are being made that could have longterm or even permanent impact, and change things significantly. 


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

THE WEEKEND:



FRIDAY OCT 16.

Today begins with the Moon in Libra conjunct the Sun, opposite Mars in Aries, and square Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This places a spotlight on cooperation, partnership, and relations with others in a rather big and transformational way, and with Saturn involved things require patience and planning, but it can feel like big things are brewing between/with ourselves and others. Things are in the works now that will significantly shift our paradigms and possibilities for the future, and with Pluto involved, this could change things forever. Things unfolding now will have lasting implications and impact us in deep and significant ways. Jupiter magnifies this energy and things can feel pregnant with possibility, but Jupiter in Capricorn is also staunchly realistic, taking measured, modest steps towards something that will eventually turn out to have an enormous impact. There is tremendous energy between ourselves and others now, with Mars in driven, enthusiastic Aries squaring Jupiter while the Sun and Moon in partnership oriented Libra does the same. Venus in Virgo trines Jupiter as well, and this signifies a team effort towards chipping away at details, times, dates, and various arrangements towards cooperative, collaborative, and mutually empowering ends. Mercury Rx in Scorpio squaring Uranus can see some radical truths emerging and this aspect can be rather bullshit and fuckery intolerant. It shines a light into what is being kept in the dark and occulted and makes hiding the truth rather difficult. It is a radical and fearless “tell it like it is without kid gloves” honesty. It’s the universes way of saying it’s time to stop running from certain truths. This isn’t a totally terrible Mercury retrograde and actually provides an excellent opportunity for refreshing insights, cognitive breakthroughs, and psychological insights. Very much outside of the box, and perhaps comfort zones. It’s a zany time. Definitely not boring, and in spite of how wild it all is, it’s surprisingly constructive. The Moon enters reflective and intense Scorpio in the final hours of the evening, intensifying the emotional momentum behind some already radical changes. “You could say things are getting pretty serious.”


SAT OCT 17.

This morning see’s the Moon in secretive and intimate Scorpio conjoined Mercury Rx, Juno (also in Scorpio) and opposite Uranus n Taurus. There can be a lot of inner excitement going on in relation to merging resources, skills, assets, etc with others. With the relationship asteroid Juno now in do or die Scorpio it’s all in or all out. No fucking around, half hearted, half assing, or dithering. Scorpio is all or nothing. So things can feel rather intense, life changing, and exciting now. There can be some deep or confidential conversations with others, surprisingly honest personal disclosures “on the downlow”, or we could receive some privileged information, or just be brimming with penetrating new insights into something. It’s a mentally rather juicy atmosphere. Evening time see’s the Moon trine escapist and otherworldly Neptune adding a touch of fantasy and an impetus towards tranquility and dreaminess. A lunar sextile to Venus in Virgo lends a pleasure seeking vibration here, but Virgo seeks pleasure selectively and moderately, and it can be pleasant to focus on ways to enjoy ourselves that also increase our wellbeing. 


SUNDAY OCT 18.

Today see’s the Moon in Scorpio sextile Saturn, Pluto and trine Neptune, suggesting that the time to dig into inner reserves and really get serious about actualizing something we feel deeply idealistic around is nigh. We can begin to feel more courage as we chip away at our goals, and the Venus/Jupiter trine being exact at 19 degrees confers a lot of promise and optimism around things that is also grounded in realism and has long term potential. There is a steadiness, sturdiness, and reasonableness here that can feel very reassuring amidst a backdrop of chaos. The Moon enters optimistic and explorative Sagittarius in the evening which can place emphasis on the distant horizon, widening our scope of action, travel, people and places at a distance/from other cultures, and expanding territory and freedom of movement. Next week will begin on a decisive and action oriented note that is focused on precisely that. Tally ho, sally forth, and such! God speed! There will be much enthusiasm and initiative around whatever this is.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 5,-11 2020





MONDAY OCT 5.

Hey everybody, it’s good to be back, I’ve got my laptop again. We begin this week with the Moon still in Taurus, with Venus having recently changed signs into anxious, problem solving, health minded, and detail oriented Virgo, forming a trine to unpredictable Uranus. It’s a “stay ready and prepared for anything” type of vibe. The Taurus lunation over the weekend was pleasantly grounding, and may have even seen some positive developments or opportunities out of the blue. This lunation can see us kicking off the week in a practical frame that can be focused on consolidating resources and assets, and planning ahead for the future. As the Moon heads into the later degrees of Taurus, it forms a square to Venus in Virgo, which can see the possibility of taking practical actions and working together with others to sort out the details of things that can be beneficial long term, or set us up to be better equipped to navigate changeable or unpredictable circumstances and increase or maintain our level of freedom and ability to prevent, manage, or mitigate crises. With Venus in Virgo forming a trine to Uranus in Taurus, the emphasis is on organizing for the possibility of great change, and working with others to tackle all of the details. Around 9 Pm the Moon heads into talkative, and multitasking Gemini which shifts the emphasis on to communication. Speaking of which, it should be noted that Mercury is in a shadow phase and will station retrograde on the 13th, so plan for the usual Mercury Rx glitches and delays. It’s typically most intensely noticeable in the week and days prior to it’s station. Everything about 2020 has been clown world, so we’ve all kind of adapted to everything being completely whack at this point. Some extra wackness thrown in there has just become par for the course. The Gemini lunation will place focus on communicating and working together with others, and spinning plates, perhaps focusing on several things simultaneously. As they say, “Team work makes the dream 

work.”



TUESDAY OCT 6.

Today see’s the Moon in chatty Gemini in trine to the Sun in diplomatic Libra. This highlights likeminded connections and people that share our viewpoints on the world, and can see some harmonious interchanges that can produce a sense of companionship and a feeling that you have people on your “team.” A lunar sextile to Chiron in Aries suggests that such likeminded companionship can help make us feel stronger than we may feel alone. It’s nice to know there are people out there that share our worldview and are willing to work with us in the face of what may feel like an ongoing crises, indicated by the Moon in square to Venus in fastidious Virgo. Things may not necessarily be “ideal” at the moment, as there are a lot of details to attend to and a whole lot of organization as of yet that needs to be wrapped up in order to solidify certain agreements and points of unity, but with Mars retrograde in Aries in square to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, there is a major push towards transformative actions, and a background feeling of urgency and determination as a driving force. Later in the day, a lunar semi square to Mars can emphasize an action oriented energy that can also express itself mostly through the intellect, communications, and the mind. This can see some impassioned communications, and a busy atmosphere, with a lot of coming and going, and perhaps a lot of communications coming in and going out. Towards evening, a lunar square to Neptune can see a highly idealistic longing take hold, and there can be the possibility of some confusion, but certainly compassion is emphasized. This in combination with the lunar/solar trine suggests that certain connections remain just out of reach for the moment. Venus in Virgo will continue to organize and innovate in order to reach her point of unity in partnership oriented Libra on Oct 27th 2020. Until then, there can be vague periods of longing as a particular process runs it’s course. It’s hard to say what’s on the other end of this, as there are a lot of unknowns, but there is certainly a drive to get there, in spite of considerable delays, blockages, and challenges.



WED OCT 7.

Today is colored by the Moon in talkative and busy Gemini in square to elusive Neptune and sextile to Mars in Aries, with some minor aspects thrown in to Mercury and Uranus. This can see people biding their time, and perhaps engaging in some lovely distractions while also simultaneously working towards an inevitable goal. Todays energy can see a lot going on perhaps in the local environment, or with neighbors, siblings, and the like. There can be some confusion or the sense that things are not yet complete, and again, some vague longings, or a feeling that some things need to simply be waited out. There can be plenty to do and engage ourselves with in the meantime, and it can be easy to find things to keep our hands and minds busy for the time being. Mars is determined towards a very specific set of goals here, and is pushing towards some huge transformations, so it’s highly possible today can see some chipping away at this, while also taking some time to smell the flowers and enjoy the journey a bit. Tomorrow takes us more into the feelings, with an emphasis on comfort seeking and a need to self nurture and to create a port of security amidst a whole lot of demolition and restructuring. Even if we feel vulnerable amidst change, there are people to lean on who provide a sense of comfort and home.


THURS OCT 8.

Early morning begins with the Moon in 29 degrees Gemini in square to Chiron, which can signify a climax in regard to errands, wrapping things up in communications, and running around, it’s possible something is being brought towards a stage of completion. The Moon then enters emotionally sensitive and comfort seeking Cancer,to trine Mercury in Scorpio and sextile Venus in Virgo while also squaring Chiron. It can actually feel good to be vulnerable with select others as we navigate a complex organizational process, and it’s possible we either find ourselves getting assistance or providing assistance or help to others. There can be a strong sense of solidarity here, in the face of some feelings of vulnerability, and deep bonds can be highlighted under these configurations. It’s perhaps a crisis atmosphere, *shared vulnerability*, that has brought certain others together and forged powerful bonds and connections. Later, towards evening see’s a lunar sextile to Uranus that can see some unexpected emotions, or some pleasantly surprising disclosures, declarations, or communications. Even with a lunar square to Chiron, which can be somewhat sensitive, vulnerable, or even slightly painful, somewhat insecure in nature, there are signs of good news and pleasant surprises coming down the pike that can be a source of great relief and inspiration over the weekend.
