Astrology for October 2017 by local Astrologer, Ananur Forma
October 2017 east coast time zone by Ananur
September 23 – October 2 Jupiter is still opposite Uranus bringing about opportunities which are risky, yet could prove incredibly lucrative financially. Can you afford the risk? It is an exciting time for adventures and doing things you’ve always wanted to try yet shied away from. You’re apt to feel restless and easily irritated if you are sticking to your normal routine.
October 1-5 Venus and Mars are conjunct in Virgo and are in a positive trine (120 degree mathematical aspect) to Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect is incredibly strong as an inspiration for creativity. Painters sculptors, poets, lyric/music makers, lovers of beauty, can you feel this energy? Are you willing to allow it to activate in you… and produce what wants to come through you? This aspect also can increase unconditional love. It is especially good for all those born: January 5-9, May 6-10, and September 8-12, of any year.
October 5 the Full Moon takes place at 2:40 p.m. with the Moon at 12 degrees of Aries directly opposite the Sun at 12 degrees of Libra. Pluto is at 16 degrees of Capricorn. It relates to the point of the Full Moon bringing about challenging times, for all of us during this cycle. Neptune is at 12 degrees of Pisces bringing in confusion and deceptive actions. We all know how advanced the hackers have become and how careful we need to be. In fact I have blacked out, with a magic marker my social security number on my medicare card. If the doctor’s office needs it, I can tell them what it is.
October 6-8 Venus in Virgo is in an awkward aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius. This aspect is known for bringing about financial concerns.
October 6-9 the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in Libra, and are in a challenging aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. This has to do with power struggles. What else could Trump possibly say that would provoke North Korea, or Iran? These are difficult times. This aspect suggests more dumb Trump remarks that leave us in danger.
October 9-11 Mars in Virgo is in a challenging aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius. Religious beliefs are at the root of the problem of prejudice which is going to be blaringly obvious at this time. Anger is provoked.
October 10 is when Jupiter enters Scorpio for a year. Jupiter has a 12 year cycle, spending one year in each sign, now it’s Scorpio’s turn. This will last until November 8, 2018. This is indeed good news for Scorpio Sun Sign people. Jupiter brings about opportunities to succeed, expand, find inner peace, feel happier, and to take chances due to many opportunities that come. Sometimes Jupiter offers too many opportunities and it can be overwhelming and confusing. This position of Jupiter could expand world awareness (even more) of the sex trade horrors, and what we can do to bring about counseling/healing for all those in need of it. Perhaps a new form of counseling will be developed during this time to help victims.
October 10-12 Mercury is in a fine aspect to Saturn encouraging you to pay attention to details, and allow the patience offered, to be manifest.
October 13-15 (at noon) Mercury is opposite Uranus bringing about quirky situations which require intuitive responses not reactions.
October 14 Venus enters Libra at 6:11 a.m. until November 7. With Venus in Libra there is a refinement being expressed artistically. The desire for justice, truth, integrity is increased and will be enriched.
October 14 – 16 the Sun is in a positive aspect with Saturn, increased concentration is available to be applied.
October 16-18 (until noon) Mercury is conjunct Jupiter. Ideas come for writing your book or talk you are going to give, soon. This is a time when consciousness is invited to expand, and learn more metaphysically.
October 17 – November 5. Mercury will enter Scorpio at 3:59 a.m. With Mercury here, thoughts and feelings are intensified and go back in time to regrettable circumstances that need to be cleared and forgiven. Freedom is desired. Creating clarity and freedom from the regrets of your past… is what is required and desired.
October 17-19 the Sun in Libra is opposite Uranus in Aries. This aspect suggests trusting intuition and acting quickly. This is not the time for thinking and analyzing. It can bring about amazing unique inventions!
October 19 the New Moon takes place at 3:12 p.m. with the Sun and Moon at 26 degrees of Libra directly opposite Uranus at 26 Aries. The next 29 ½ days of this cycle will be chaotic, surprising, interesting, erratic, unusual, and we are all called to respond and trust intuition and not react out of fear. Events will come about that are unexpected. This is the very nature of Uranus, when in aspect to other planets. This is profoundly important now, because of the New Moon.
October 22-December 9 Mars enters Libra which can be a feisty time. You can’t really trust what you hear. Sometimes people say things that they don’t really mean, for example: “Oh no, I’m fine. Thank you for offering to help me today, but I’m ok.” This may be an invitation to INSIST on helping that one. I’m always surprised when someone does not say directly what they need, and they pretend that all is well, when it’s obviously not so. Mars in Libra can be a tricky time of not really knowing what another needs or wants.
October 23 the Sun enters Scorpio at 1:27 a.m. I think of this phase each year as a time of, “getting it together.” The energy of Scorpio is so intense that what you feel is exaggerated and it’s hard, or impossible to ignore. This is the time for those in need to get individual therapy or join a 12 step program. There is a problem with entities who take over when someone is addicted and has a “black out.” It seems obvious to me that the entity then takes over. An entity is a person who died and for some reason (could be addiction or an obsession) stays connected to the earth plane and does not move on spiritually because they are still wanting something. During Scorpio time this is the time to deal with and take charge of your life. A Shaman would be helpful, too.
October 22-24 Mercury is in a fine aspect with Neptune ushering in Spiritual knowledge and willingness to share it. Reading from inspired authors would have a notable affect on you at this time.
October 23-26 the Sun is conjunct Jupiter at 3 degrees of Scorpio which is an excellent (financially & opportunities come) time for anyone born: October 25-28, June 24-27, February 21-23, of any year. For the rest of us this aspect brings about increased joy, wisdom and clarity. Also anyone who was born with the Sun conjunct Jupiter close to 3 degrees of Scorpio would find this phase incredibly beneficial. Those folks were born: October 25-29 of 1946.
October 25-27 Venus in Libra is in a challenging aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. Your relationships, in general will prove difficult and offering something of value for you to learn about your self, and life, It won’t be comfortable though. Mercury is in a positive aspect to Pluto increasing psychological awareness and increased psychic sensitivity.
November 1-3 Venus is in a favorable aspect to Saturn showing you who you can count on. The Sun is in a positive aspect to Neptune increasing your connection with Spirit and those who have passed away. They have “teachings” to share with you.
