October 1 – 7, 2018 I hope you all are able to see the underpinnings of what’s going on out in the wild and managing to stay sensible about it. We’re into October, that month that brings the anticipation of Halloween/Samhain/Dia de los Muertos and the approach of the return of the ancestors that so many cultures celebrate. There is such a beautiful mystery to this month because it’s the turning point in terms of weather and seasonal change, we think of Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, the apple harvest and the flavorful sauces and ciders and juice that comes with it, jackets and closed shoes replace shorts and tank tops and pumpkin flavored everything.
This week, out in the wild, debates rage and the focus is now the battle of the genders, just like the last time Uranus and Saturn were aligned with each other. This is a revisit to a time when the Women’s Liberation movement began and the next cycle has begun. We’ll see how much impact this has; the last effort in the ‘60’s spawned Affirmative Action and the beginning of more female presence in journalism and in corporations, universities and government. We are far from the idealistic Star Trek: Next Generation and later versions that held females equal to males but still, it’s something to strive for. We shall see how this pans out over the next decade or so.
Friday will feature a Grand Trine in Earth signs with the Moon in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. The element lacking now is Fire, so the fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius may be languishing a bit, but the first week of this month holds a tidbit of potential for everyone.
Happy October and keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): October starts off with a bang for you due to some lovely alignments that help you with emotional issues as well as communication. Your Ruler Mars in innovative Aquarius is beaming strength to the Sun in strategic Libra, and this gives you a boost relating to your sweetheart/spouse/closest friends. You have a lot going for you and those closest to you really do have your best interest in their minds and hearts (and it’s mutual) so if you reach out this week you’ll be rewarded. Now that we’re fully into autumn, you have that winding-down feeling and the relaxation that comes with it.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): This first week of October has some lovely things in store for you, mostly in terms of finding little pretties to wear or decorate your place with. Things now smooth out and you’re able to find the ground under your feet again after a tumultuous summer. Now that we’re winding down, you’re able to make strides where you’d stalled out before; Mars in your sector of Ultimate Potential is in a lovely alignment with the Sun in your sector of Work/Health and by an astrological slingshot effect, you’re able to wind things up and move forward with a sense of peace and general well-being. Just remember not to look back because you’re not going that way.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): This week holds promise because the Sun in Libra and Mars in Aquarius light your rocket in a lovely alignment. You’re on top of the game mentally and are able to actually focus on what’s really there rather than what “should be” there. This is good! It spells success. You’re also able to draw on your intuitive powers because of three other planets that are singing to each other in water (emotions, intuition) signs. If you have some otherworldly occurrences, don’t be surprised. Keep a dream journal as well because you’ll want to document what your dreams tell you. A week of mysteries to chase in the month that brings mysteries to us!
Cancer (June 21-July 22): This is your week to get going on whatever it is you need to get going on! Mars in your sector of Shared Assets/Intimacy and the Sun in your sector of Home are beckoning you to further do stuff around home and family (as if you haven’t done enough already). This first week of October holds a lot of promise for your creative side, especially if you’re of the culinary arts ilk. You’re ready for something new and different and done by your own little self! You’ve had enough of having things not under your direct control so stir up that artist side of yourself and get busy, things will turn around for you pretty quickly!
Leo (July 23-August 22): This week holds some good stuff for you because the Sun and Mars are fanning the flames of change for you. Ideas will come to you but if you feel lackluster and unmotivated it’s likely because there are no planets currently in a fire sign to bolster your energy and spur you into action. You may feel sort of suspended, but that’s no excuse for not pulling your goal closer to you in some way. It’s important now for you to hold your own energy and not let others drain it through using you as a gossip recipient or a wailing wall. Sure, if someone is in genuine distress, that’s one thing but habitual victims of this or that are weary-making folk and you don’t need that. Cut unnecessary anchors and let the wind fill your sails.
Virgo (August 23-September 21): October brings those earth colors you love that blend in with the purple and blue and red that you like to wear. This week is about blending things in a harmonious fashion and making the way smooth for yourself and your loved ones. You’re good at that when you put your mind to it (in other words, when you can be bothered to do it, haha)! With the Sun in your sector of finances in a lovely alignment to Mars in your sector of Work/Health, you’re poised for making financial headway and also for being able to manage your schedule in such a way as to be able to have enough for yourself that you can make a rough path smoother for a loved one. This is a very good week for you in many ways and the support of the planets in your fellow Earth signs (Uranus, Saturn and Pluto) is showing you the way.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): The Sun in your sign is well aligned with Mars in innovative Aquarius, so October is off to a good start! If you’re a musician, you should be getting some great gigs and loads of support and appreciation. Financially you should be gaining ground, due to Venus’ continued support. This week brings gentler energy to your domain as long as you keep your attention on being as peaceful as possible inside. It’s a good week to really assess what’s worth your attention and what isn’t; attention is energy and so are the emotions that can arise from such attention (in terms of things over which you have no control). Fortunately, you’re a mental air sign and usually don’t get all fuzzed up unless you’re in a debate about something you hold a strong opinion about. Anyway, keep it at a low roar!
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): The first week of October and it’s your high mystery month! It’s going to be a good week for you, especially with some lovely alignments and enough quirkiness to keep you intrigued. One lovely trait of the week is three planets in Earth signs forming a lovely Grand Trine for one day (Friday). This is a pivot point of the week for you where something slots itself into place and gives you relief, without you having to lift a finger! While the world whirls around you, you’re still able to keep your sense of balance by observing but not getting involved unless it’s at close range; your stinger comes in really handy and gives ample warning! Seriously though, this is shaping up to be a good month for you. Enjoy!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): The first week of October brings some good vibes your way because of a really sweet alignment between the Sun and Mars, bringing energy to your sectors of Friends/Goals and Thinking/Communication, respectively. Through open minded and well worded communication you are able to move things to your advantage. Your naturally friendly nature brings people toward you and since you don’t know how to not be authentic, your openness engages others. Saturn in your sector of Finances is helping you structure a financial goal that will last for a while and his favorable alignment with a subdued Uranus in your sector of Work/Health pulls you toward a more meaningful way to earn your money. All in all a good start to what looks to be an active and interesting month for you!
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): This first week of October has your name on it! The Sun in your sector of Ultimate Potential is in a very friendly alignment with action oriented Mars in your sector of Finances. This points you toward an advantage financially, so do make the most of this week in terms of padding your nest for the winter! Friday will be your crowning day due to the Moon moving into Virgo and forming a Grand Trine in Earth signs with Saturn and Uranus. This will likely draw your attention to distant places and ideas from other lands that will work well where you live. Whether you’re an artist or an engineer, what you bring to the table will be looked upon favorably. Take advantage of this week and don’t forget your scarf when the autumn winds pick up!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): Mars in your sign is in a lovely alignment to the Sun in your sector of Expansion. This enables you to pull your future toward you more effectively and in a balanced fashion rather than going full guns to get half of the things done that need to be done. The element of Earth will be strong toward the end of the week and this will slow you down enough to really be able to see what’s going on around you or what you’re making happen. Don’t forget to ask questions instead of making statements because you want others around you to engage rather than move away from you. This week contains lots of good magic for that wand of yours, so grab it for when you need it!
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): The first week of October and you’re gazing at the weather, wondering when the first signs of winter will show up. What, you’re not ready yet? This is the week to fluff up the pillows and pound out the rugs and sweep the floors! You’re the type that loves an adventure when it shows up, but you don’t like to be swept up in them, so this week will please you by supplying ample information for whatever you need, and I don’t mean from just Google! Your intuition is enhanced and your dreams may be quite vivid now, so keep a dream journal if you don’t already. Your still waters are welcome where there are storms on the surface, so keep putting out that calmness and seek it out as well in your companions. That’s the way to begin October 2018!
