October Horoscopes

The Astrology of October features Saturn, Uranus and Pluto, plus Chiron. This is a powerful month for change, based on the Libra New Moon from the end of September that conjoined Mercury and formed a T-Square with Uranus and Pluto. We are urged to transform, in ourselves and in our thinking, like it or not, and whether we think that we are ready for it or not, and we will eventually come to see the advantages of moving forward thus with our lives.

Mercury is also prominent in this month’s configurations, since it almost exactly opposes Uranus at the time of the New Moon and is also exactly parallel with Uranus. Visionary ideas and startling epiphanies could well come to light over the course of this month’s cycle, while a series of surprising turns of events is also more than likely with their consequent opportunities for enlightenment. The intelligence that we receive in this way, rather than being dismissed as illogical, might need to be allowed to absorb in a kind of spiritual osmosis whereby this unexpected and powerful information can be allowed settle, via an act of cosmic grace, into our very being.

Saturn is also strongly configured in this month’s lunations, being in parallel and conjunct Venus at the time of the New Moon, and is also in parallel with Chiron. Saturn is also conjunct the Sun and opposed by the Moon at the time of the Full Moon on the October 11th. Saturn with Chiron brings up once more, as it did last month also, the wound of misplaced authority. This is therefore a time when we question whether the authority figures that influence us in our adult lives are in fact acting in our own best interest. Our fears in this regard are based on early childhood trauma with parental authority that we found not fully functional. By a process of introspection we come to accept outside authority as in fact beneficial as well as suspect. When Saturn comes up it is not necessarily negative. Although we are facing inherent limitations in what we are about, and taking on a conservative thrust of mind, we need also to acknowledge that limitation is an important part of life and that the intelligent conservation of resources and of time and money might turn out to be crucial to our survival in this pivotal decade.

Uranus and Pluto are the big news this month; still within close orb of their square, and that square is powerfully triggered and highlighted by the Libra New Moon that guides the unfolding events of this month’s cycle. We feel the evolutionary pull toward an unknown future, and this is of course scary. But choosing to move forward nevertheless remains safer than continuing as we are, since we are essentially moving toward the true purpose of our Higher Selves. We are tempted to resist this evolutionary pull; the familiar is always more comforting than the unknown. We must however recognize what would be in our actual best long-term interest, and this enables us to have the courage to go ahead. We go stumbling and slow, or as singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan puts it – fumbling towards ecstasy. We honor our own best interest but only in fits and starts, not as consistently as we would like. However we do it and we benefit from accepting what is.
