Key Dates in the Astrological Forecast for October 2020:
OCTOBER 1: FULL MOON IN ARIES
Full Moon 9°08′ in Aries conjunct Chiron Rx at 3:05 PM (MST)
This intense Full moon is infused with the energy of Chiron - the wounded healer. It has the potential to bring up uncomfortable situations from the past for you to face. Hidden wounds of shame, trauma, or guilt are brought to the surface to be fully exposed. This moment of inner crisis can definitely make you feel vulnerable. It's important to bring these emotions up to the surface to be fully felt and released so you can heal from it.
OCTOBER 4: PLUTO DIRECT
Pluto Direct 22°29' in Capricorn at 7:33 AM (MST)
Since April 25th, when Pluto stationed Retrograde, we were slowly changing from within and reflecting on where we need to re-structure certain areas of our lives. What needs to be demolished and rebuilt? Does it need to be rebuilt? Is it time to build and create something new in our lives? When Pluto Stations Direct on October 4th, this soul searching has the potential to reveal deep inner truths and bring clarity to an area of our life that's no longer working. This intense energy will allow you to see what exactly needs to be de-constructed, cleared, detoxed, or purified - with a clear understanding of why.
OCTOBER 9: MARS SQUARE PLUTO
Mars Rx 22°30’ in Aries square Pluto 22°30’ in Capricorn at 7:09 AM (MST)
Mars Retrograde in Aries squaring off with Pluto Direct in Capricorn is asking us where we've been giving our power away to others. This energy can trigger feelings of insecurity. You're being asked to stand in your own personal power, take action, and make the required changes to transform an area of your life that you've been putting off until now.
OCTOBER 13: MERCURY RETROGRADE
Mercury Rx 11°40' in Scorpio at 7:05 PM (MST)
This is an opportunity for self-analysis. You have the ability to go deep within to honestly analyze extreme obsessions, hidden motives, and control issues. What are your true intentions? Are you holding on too tightly to something? Where have you not been honest with yourself? Perhaps an intimate conversation can bring truth and clarity, ultimately helping you to heal deeply rooted issues that you weren't addressing before.
OCTOBER 16: NEW MOON IN LIBRA
New Moon 23°53′ in Libra at 1:31 PM (MST)
As Libra season slowly comes to a close, we welcome a New Moon in the sign of the scales which encourages us to bring peace, harmony, and balance to our relationships. Where do we need to compromise? Have we been too selfish? Have we been overly dependent? This energy brings new beginnings with one-to-one connections of all kinds. It's possible to form new business partnerships, sign new contracts, or start a committed relationship.
OCTOBER 22: SCORPIO SEASON BEGINS
Sun enters Scorpio at 4:59 PM (MST)
This energy can bring a deep and transformative rebirth into an area of your life. Have the inner courage and strength to face your fears. Bringing suppressed emotions to the surface and feeling them deeply is a major breakthrough in the process of healing.
OCTOBER 31: FULL MOON IN TAURUS
Full Moon 8°38′ in Taurus conjunct Uranus Rx 8°41’ in Taurus at 8:49 AM (MST)
Happy Halloween! We end the month with a Blue Moon. This second Full Moon of the month in Taurus is energized by a Uranus conjunction which can bring sudden, shocking news or surprising breakthroughs around your self-worth, or who and what you value.
