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
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.
