Sagittarius Horoscope for October 2013

Posted on October 2, 2013 by Henry Seltzer of ASTROGRAPH.COM

This is an altogether beautiful and yet also a terrible time for you, Sagittarius, as you are brought face to face with your deep unconscious process of growth and change. This, in one way of looking at things, is a wonderful series of opportunities to affect the world around you in a vastly different way, and is also more than a little scary. You might feel as though you were caught in a trap of your own devising with no real escape. Being able to see the bars on your metaphorical cage has been however a truly positive development. You are in an excellent position now to do something concretely about your situation, in terms of visioning future possibilities for yourself in a way that syncs up with what your deep interior process has been whispering to you all along.

As the month begins, you are in a meditative mood, still reflecting on the emotional intelligence that has come your way in the wake of the powerful Last Quarter Moon of September 26th. This took place with the Sun newly entered into your sector of societal connection, squaring the Moon in your sector of intimacy and personal evolution. The Moon also at that time completed a grand trine in Water that aligned with your solar chart. It is possible that, since then, novel emotional frontiers have been opening up before you. You find yourself on a voyage of discovery, which you in any case love, although in this instance down into the deep interior spaces beyond and beneath the level of your conscious mind. You are being invited by the cosmos to connect – heart-fully and mindfully – with the emotional spirit deep inside you; and this is so that a new stage of integration might begin.

All three of the outer planet energies represented by Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are in aspect to the current lunations, and therefore emphasized. The first and last of these are a potent, even revolutionary combination, as they draw closer to their intense square that perfects by month's end. The Uranian wake-up call is combined with the destructive power of Pluto to make sure that transformation moves along.
Slippery Neptune remains in the mix as well, located in your sector of home, family, and tribe; thus your gateway to psychological security. He's a little crazy-making there, especially as emphasized as he has recently been, but this all comes out right in the end, once you fully adjust. You could be experiencing renewed profundity in your familial relationships, or these could somehow prove illusive or over-idealized. The same goes, in a different sense, for projects or activities around the home, such as a remodel, or with extended family. Whatever the surface details there might be that are connected with root psychological experience, the mission has to be the one that has heart.

Saturn in Scorpio is also very active in your solar chart, being aspected by Uranus and Pluto, as well as Chiron. The other Water Sign planet in the mix is a completely different sort of energy from Neptune, for the action of Saturn is to hold things back; rather than to be expansive, Saturn is limiting and contracting. Saturn resides currently in your sector of inner work and dream imagination, whose natural ruler is Neptune, signifying, the imaginary, glimmering and paradoxical half-truth rather than the concrete no-nonsense actual situation. Saturn located in this elusive sector implies that you are currently in the process of allowing the vastness and mystery of your inner world to be more directly perceived, made more concretely available. You might be going through some difficult times over this end-of-year period, and yet these are enlightening as well. You will emerge with an altered life structure, more solid and also transformed in important areas.

With Chiron, the Wounded Healer, highlighted and occupying your home and family sector along with Neptune, an important part of what comes through for you at this time might well be a new and more compassionate look at old patterns of behavior that have outlived their usefulness for you. These often stem from early childhood trauma that has not completely healed, but rather has been set aside with little or no connection to your conscious mind. Accepting these dark places within you is the most important thing that you can currently do for yourself. Better internal connection begins to flow just from taking that first step.
