ARIES

Hello October!

You’re looking pretty good!

For your eyes only

Work will be getting many Aries folk down, thanks to Saturn and Pluto on your case. Moreover, this month, Saturn is clashing around the skies and there’s a Full Moon in Aries, so to speak, which means you could be feeling weighed down, bossed around or over-emotional. The solution? Turning your mind to sex and money will make you happy…

What else?

There are no extremely big astrological dramas this month, you might be pleased to hear. That means it’s likely there are going to be fewer dramas down here on earth. It’s not going to be 100% smooth sailing of course – after all, is it ever? But overall, the month ahead is looking pretty reasonable.

Let’s run down the major aspects of the month ahead.

Well, with all the aforementioned notwithstanding, the month kicks off with a bit of a clash! We get Venus, the planet of love, clashing with Pluto, the paranoid planet.

This could be a little bit tough on some people. Most affected will be people born under the signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn – or people with those signs rising.

If you find yourself getting a little bit over-wrought, have a word with yourself, take a breath, and walk away until you can behave rationally.

And more about Pluto…

Also in the first week of the month, we get Pluto, also known as the bully of the Zodiac, finally changing directions.

Pluto has been retrograde since April, which has meant we have been going over old ground in terms of fire and fury in our lives, in terms of detoxifying, rebirthing and transforming our lives. That sense of going over and over old ground stops here now though. Pluto is moving forward again.

Wherever Pluto goes, the earth gets scorched. So here we are, with Pluto moving forward through our chart, burning things up!

If you think that sounds quite intense, you’re right! Pluto is a very intense planet. However the good news is that normally he works on a psychological or intangible level. So whatever Pluto brings, is usually quite subtle, even if it is in some ways life changing.

Here is a reminder of where Pluto is for you.

Note that this cycle lasts until 2024!

 

You still have an almost irresistible urge to explore new territory, mentally or physically. This presents you with a problem – you’re the sign known to love its security and creature comforts more than most. But as André Gide famously said (and forgive me if I’ve used this one before but it’s so perfect for you!)  “In order to discover new lands, you have to lose sight of the shore”. And this applies to you big time right now. You need to open your mind. And you’re being given reasons and motivations to leave the safety of your own little world. Every time you venture out and explore, you move one step further to revolutionising your life. Every time you decide to stay home and play it safe? You just hold back your own development! You’re also potentially a publishing power house.

Mars is on the move and what that means…

Another big change in the first week of the month is the move of the planet Mars from Virgo into Libra.

Mars in Virgo was all about the details. It was about fighting to get things absolutely right. It was about crossing the t’s and dotting the eye.

Now we get Mars moving into the partnership sign of Libra.

On the one hand it means we are all going to be just that little bit more likely to raise our voice at our partner… This is a transit which asks us to sort through any relationship issues we are having.

It’s also a time when we are going to make our voices heard in terms of fighting for justice.

And it’s a time when we are more likely to try harder to find a balance in our lives, one way or another.

Note that Mars in Libra is a little bit weak, which could be good for most of us. If a planet is a bit weak, there’s a chance it will be slightly less aggressive. We could find there is a greater reluctance than usual for people to engage in conflict while Mars is in Libra. The only problem is that sometimes, this actually flips and people wage war just so they’re not seen as chickens! We will have to wait and see. However if you decide that in October you will argue with style, and be aggressively gorgeous, you will get the most this cycle has to offer. Or at least part of the most!

One last point; Mars here can be so polite it verges on passive aggressive. Don’t be that passive aggressive person!

Here is where Mars is for you.

If you know you’re a super stress head, watch out. Mars in this part of your chart can bring up issues related to stress, anger management and how well you are looking after yourself, mind, body and spirit. You will probably feel quite like working extra hard – which is fine, as long as you don’t overdo it. Your desire to help others out can also be expected to skyrocket – once again, fine, as long as you leave enough energy in your reserves for yourself. Careful not to work so hard you start to lose your cool with co-workers and clients.

More lessons to learn

I know I said that October will be easier, but another quite fleeting alignment to watch out for early on in the month is the Sun squaring Saturn. This is going to take place on October 7, pretty much wherever you are in the world.

The Sun is all about ego and Saturn forces people back into line.

If you’re feeling as though someone is being a bit rough on you around October 7, just check to see that maybe they don’t have a point. Saturn is the great teacher of the zodiac, and normally if we are getting a hard time under Saturn alignment like this, we have something to learn.

What about love? Aka Venus?

On October 8, it’s settling down and being sweeter as the beautiful planet of love, Venus, moves out of Libra into Scorpio.

Just like Mars is not that thrilled to be in the sign of Libra, Venus is not that thrilled to be in the sign of Scorpio. In other words, Venus is a bit weaker in the month of OctoberLoving too much, emotions which run so deep they hurt and sinning are all risks now.

That said, Venus in Scorpio has its pluses. For example, it’s quite sexy. Think; seductive witch.

The bottom line, though, is that when Venus is weak, it can be a little bit tricky for us humans down here on earth. We may not be able to express our affection for someone as much as we would like to for example.

That said, as Venus moves through the sign of Scorpio, she’s making some pretty good connections.

On October 20 she’s harmonising with Saturn, and on October 21 with Neptune. Then on October 25 she is harmonising with Pluto.

Put all those dates in your diary if you want to have a good time with your beloved, meet someone new, and/or you have abundance you want to attract!

Also, here’s where Venus in Scorpio hits your chart

This month, Venus moves into your seventh house of love, where she’ll stay for around four weeks. As you might expect, having the Planet Of Love in your Love Zone is pretty good news for you on the relationship front. As Venus passes through this part of your chart, you can expect to be easier to get along with, plain and simple, and that alone will instantly sweeten all your friendships and relationships. Added to this the astro-fact that Venus here also means it’s easier to express yourself and your warmest feelings to others, and you start to get an idea of your pulling power over the next four weeks. Singles should get out and mingle, while happy couples should lap up the Happy Couples vibes. Unhappy couples find themselves focusing on their love life now – look for a way to come to a gently accord with each other. And beyond romance, all partnerships of all descriptions are favored under these astro conditions, including business partnerships. You are a Peace Maker Extraordinaire right now – don’t be afraid to use your skills as and when you need to, for yourself and for others.

You also need to know that…

October 27 brings what’s probably the hardest aspect of the month. Mars, the aforementioned planet of anger and drive, is squaring Saturn, the difficult planet which shall not be moved.

Just be careful around this period if you feel like you’re banging head your head against a brick wall. There is a lot of change in the air at this time as well, thanks to a Sun/Uranus connection.

In other words, it’s a time to tread carefully as the month end.

Happy endings

Happily, on October 30 we have a lovely link between Mercury and Venus. This is literally just less than 24 hours before Mercury goes into another retrograde cycle. It makes it a very good time to tell someone how you feel , though there’s no telling how or when they will react!

October 31 sees the start of a new Mercury retrograde cycle. Everything old will be new again and vice versa.

This time around Mercury retrograde is going to be in the sign of Scorpio , but I will leave more information about that until next month.

PS Interested in Mercury Retrograde? I have a new book about it coming out, co-authored with Kim Farnell. If you order before October 31, you will get some great free bonuses, including a mini-course explainer video that will teach you how to work out where Mercury is retrograde in your chart every time!

Full Moon in Aries

If you’re on the spiritual path, or you just want to make some magic in your life, then it’s great you’re reading this!

October brings the Full Moon in the sign of Aries – the first sign of the zodiac.

So, if you want to start a new lunar practise and keep it up for a year, this is the ideal time to make the commitment to working with the Full Moon every month for 12 months. Working with the monthly Full Moon will change your life for the better and boost your manifesting powers in ways which truly could astound you.

How to work with the monthly Full Moon…

1. Set aside time once a month just before Full Moon, ideally on the night that the Moon is at Her roundest (this month is great as the Full Moon is at night, but check the times on these pages every month. Sometimes the Full Moon is in the morning or afternoon, in which case you would ideally do your work the night before).

2. Think of at least one person you can forgive

3. Think of at least one thing you can forgive yourself for

4. Write down your forgiveness list (express yourself fully!) and then burn it

5. Say “Om Namo Narayani” which means “I surrender to the Divine” 3 times

If you do this every month, your life will start to change in amazing ways. There is awesome power in forgiveness and surrender!

The New Moon is in Scorpio…

The New Moon is the time to set your intentions for the month ahead. By getting clear on what you want, you will effectively be sending out arrows of desire that cannot help but start to manifest. Of course you also need to work towards your dreams. For help getting started with your New Moon wishes, intentions and commitments, pick up my 100% free New Moon kit.

In astrology, Scorpio represents the phoenix that rises from the ashes. So, no matter where you are sexually or when it comes to cash, this is the time to turn things around.

The Goddess associated with Scorpio is the Goddess of destruction, Kali, a very power energetic force. So when you play with Scorpio energies, you’re playing with powerful forces! If you’re game, the idea this month is to destroy dramas you have had with either sex or money.

The mantra is simple: “Om Kreem Kali”. Chant it at least 3 times (or 9, 27 or 108 times) on the night of the New Moon, as you ask Kali to free you from whatever is standing between you and your desires. Then be prepared – let me say it again; Kali is a powerful force!

Where the Moon is new for YOU

How’s your love life? There’s a New Moon in your Love Zone happening this month, which means you’re getting the chance to really reinvigorate your love life. If you’re single, this is the perfect time to draw a line under the past and to move on from your old loves, your old dreams and any old heart aches. If you’re attached, you probably already know about the importance of keeping your relationship fresh – and this New Moon brings in fresh energy, so have a think about some of the times you and your partner can do this month and over the coming month. Remember, some of the best things in life are free!

Have a great month!
