October 2017 ~ Purge & Merge
Do you notice that when you clear out some space on a shelf, it doesn’t stay empty long? Energy is in constant motion and when space is made externally or internally, it wants to fill. So when new experiences are desired, the best way to usher them in is to make room for them. This month is full of extra opportunities to purge items, beliefs, dynamics, that are no longer in resonance with your higher vision of your life, compliments of lots of short-term planetary movement through Libra and Scorpio. Release and partnering continue as long-term themes due to Jupiter’s movement into Scorpio this month. The theme of expanding relationships began to get really heated up starting in the fall of last year when Jupiter moved into Libra. As Jupiter makes its move to Scorpio it will carry some different themes from the Libra transit but because Libra and Scorpio are two signs of relationships, merging continues as a common theme that continues with the sign change.
Some additional themes starting around now and lasting for around a year will in- clude psychology, astrology, mysteries of all kinds, occult or esoteric studies (explor- ing the riches of the lesser seen realms), the topic of shared or “other people’s” money through marriage, financial collaboration, inheritances, sweepstakes, lotto (and oth- er winnings), debt, loans, investments, capital funding and other financial support or assistance, research/investigation, intimacy, sex, power, birth, death, rebirth (the energy of the Phoenix rising from the ashes), and empowerment of self and others.
This month we have one of the luckiest aspects of the year, Sun conjunct Jupiter. This happens on October 26 (sometimes felt strongly the day before or after, too).
Awesome transits bring great opportunities for flow and challenging aspects often bring pressure, stress, or overstimulation. Something important to note is that the state of our adrenal glands will often play a part in how we experience astrologically-related challenges (and any other stress). Supporting the adrenals is a wonderful way to assist in more easily handling challenges that comes with tough aspects, and in having more clarity and energy to use the fantastic energies. To dismiss caring for the adrenals is to miss an important piece to living life with more joy and balance.
We are still in the last great window of 2017 that is free of personal planet ret- rogrades that started September 20. This window runs through November 15. This window is full of great opportunities for new commitments, big decisions, and charging forward. I always recommend tuning in to intuition as you navigate around the aspects. Even if a day is “supposed to be good astrologically,” if it isn’t flowing well for you, feel into making your important decisions when you feel the flow in your personal experience.
Feel out for coherent planetary combinations occurring around October 1, 3, 5, 9, 10, 12, 16, 18, 19, 24, 26, 27. Opportunities for practicing zen will likely come up in the days around October 5, 8, 9, 11, 15, 18, 19, 27.
Check out more October Highlights:
** Note: often the effects of planetary transits are felt before or after the actual day the transit occurs.
October 1 — Mars in Virgo Trine Pluto in Capricorn — This is the second and last time this aspect occurs, the previous one was on April 6. It can bring courage, con- fidence, determination, and recognition. This is a great aspect for important actions.
October 3 — Venus in Virgo Trine Pluto in Capricorn — Material support or gains often come with this line-up. This is a great aspect for important actions.
October 5 — Full Moon at almost 13° of Aries — Fullness, completion, fruition comes to the sector of individuality and self-image. It can bring a notable amount of attention to the individual from others or could also come in the form of some physical accomplishments (like running a marathon) or a health issue coming to light or to a head. This full moon is also opposing Mercury, squaring Pluto, bring- ing forces that seem to work against accomplishment, and coinciding with Venus and Mars in Virgo conjunct, which can be very auspicious for money, love, and self- esteem. The Venus and Mars conjunction in Virgo could also bring some intense criticism. Try to use the enhanced analytical powers wisely.
October 8 — Venus in Virgo Square Saturn in Sagittarius — Pressure is put upon finances and relationships with this transit. Self-esteem can also waver. Be open to constructive comments but try not to take things too personally.
October 9 — Mercury & Sun Conjunct in Libra both Square Pluto — Nega- tivity and suspicions can run high now. An antagonist force could reveal inner resources that were hidden and ready to come into the light. The desire to con- trol or the feeling of being controlled by some other force may be strong now. Although conflict like this can propel outer movement, make sure there is proper use of power. The end may not justify the means.
October 10 — Jupiter enter Scorpio — This movement of Jupiter is begin- ning the trend for the upcoming year of purging and merging. Mysteries, power, sex, intimacy, money, investments, shared resources, esoteric studies, psychology, astrology — all have great potential to come into greater focus for the individual and the world in general.
October 11 — Mars in Virgo Square Saturn in Sagittarius — Being a perfec- tionist may be harder now. If frustration occurs because of too much focus on de- tails, try to be more flexible to give a chance for the energy to more easily express.
October 12 — Mercury in Libra Sextile Saturn in Sagittarius — This aspect is great for concentration and figuring out solutions, especially to topics that in- volve the bigger picture and long-term outcomes.
October 15 — Mercury in Libra Opposing Uranus in Aries — There is com- monly an increase in nervous tensions now. There is increased tendency to rush and not be present and the odds are increased that mistakes with annoying re- percussions could be made. Grounding, resting, and centering in the midst of the madness can go a long way to averting unnecessary issues.
October 16 — Sun in Libra Sextile Saturn in Sagittarius — This transit often brings a burst of support or respect from an older or more established person.
October 18 — Mercury in Scorpio Conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio — Fortune and good news often come with this transit. These planets in deeply intimate Scorpio could also represent notable financial support, powerful collaborations or unions, or major insights from psychological or esoteric studies. Intense ex- pression of a negative kind can also occur. This isn’t a time to antagonize.
October 19 — New Moon at 26° of Libra — Make your ten New Moon wishes on the subjects of partnerships or other relationships, diplomatic com- munications, and health issues involving the adrenals, sugar levels, and kidneys. A great angle with Saturn brings potentials for great outcomes from hard work, a conjunction with Jupiter expands all possibilities, and an opposition with Uranus brings a surprise element that could be an unpredictable, erratic or antagonistic force or a request from the Universe to stretch out of your comfort zone in order to make a situation work.
October 24 — Mercury in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces — Imagination and psychic sensitivities soar with this transit. It can also come with notable dream experiences. This is a great time to explore dream work like lucid dreaming.
October 26 — Sun in Scorpio Conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio — This yearly meet- up is considered one of the luckiest transits. This is great time to do anything impor- tant, especially involving relationships, intimacy, shared money or other resources, spiritual or psychological studies, or looking for answers to a mysterious situation.
October 27 — Venus in Libra Square Pluto in Capricorn — Surfacing of deep issues regarding power and control commonly occur now, especially as it relates to love, money, and self-esteem. It is not usually the best time to act on strong feelings that arise now, as it is likely to bring intense drama. Doing inner work or seeking other psychological support to work on the core issue can be very productive.
October 27 — Mercury in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn — This transit can bring answers to deep questions and powerful breakthroughs. Intentionally using this energy for meditation and integration will go a long way. Clear under- standing of long-standing dynamics in relationships with people and money may come in play now. | the NOISE arts & news | O
