Astrology for October 10-16, 2018 - Journey to the Depths

Venus is retrograding through Scorpio until the end of October when she will re-visit Libra for a while.  Her retrograde is symbolic of journeying to the underworld and in Scorpio, this digging deep in all things Venus-related, is further intensified.

This week, she squares Mars in Aquarius - which can cause tension, conflict, anger and impatience in our relationships, or bring more passion and intensity to those relationships that are on stable footing.
Uranus opposite Mercury can also trigger confrontation, disagreements, nervous tension and anxiety.  OR, on a more positive note, it may lead to new insights and epiphanies.
Sun square Pluto can have us craving control in an attempt to keep our unconscious fears and past traumas at bay.  Choosing to face these head on, will allow us to gain an inner sense of power and control  - which is true power.

New Moon in Libra - Authentic Relationships

The New Moon in Libra will draw attention to how we do relationship.  With an abundance of Plutonian/Scorpionic Energy in the mix, this is anything but superficial.  We have the chance for powerful new beginnings in terms of how we relate.

The big question to ask ourselves at this time is, "Am I being authentic in my relationships?"  We may have to get off the fence (which is not something Libra is entirely comfortable with), and make a decision about where we stand on a particular issue.  If we choose not to exercise our free will, the universe will choose for us.

Identity Crisis & Restoring Balance

The Full Moon in Aries is Illuminating where we stand in relationship to our identity.  Are we honouring our truest selves?

The Equinox/Libra Season draws our attention to balance and harmony.  Are we happy with the harvest we are currently reaping or do we need to reflect on how we can sow our seeds differently moving forward?

Healing, Transformation and The Balance of Power

Chiron re-entered Pisces yesterday until February.  This last visit to Pisces, before moving longer term into Aries, asks us to take note of where we may have unfinished healing business related to our spiritual sense of belonging.  Have we dealt with our pain by further isolating ourselves?  Have we been trying to escape it in unhealthy ways?  Or, has a dark night of the soul, led us to an awakening?

Pluto, making a long-term transit through Capricorn, goes direct on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd.  Wherever Capricorn is in our own personal chart, is where Pluto is making its transformational journey - where it wants us to go deep, be real, face our fears, release our skeletons, be vulnerable, take back our power, act with utmost integrity. 

As Joseph Campbell said, " The cave we fear to enter, holds the treasure we seek."

Can You Relate?

The theme this week and for the next while, centres around relationships in the broadest sense.  How we relate to others, and the world around us.  Playing into this theme, Venus has recently entered Scorpio, where she will stay, except for a short trip back into Libra, until the beginning of December.  Venus in Scorpio is intense, and is looking to transform how we relate in whatever area of life (house) Scorpio occupies for each of us.

In other news... Asteroid Vesta (The Goddess who keep our home fires burning), is moving into Capricorn, where she will contribute to all that's been playing out in Capricorn this year and into 2020.
