New Moon in Libra / Scorpio Season
The New Moon / Solar Eclipse in Libra falls on October 15th, highlighting the Sabian Symbol:
“A Child Giving Birds A Drink At A Fountain”Sabian Symbol: Libra 22
This Eclipse is part of Saros Series: 7 South –
“The immense power, anger and force of the Mars square Pluto is channeled into this family of eclipses via the trine. The individual experiencing this series will find that huge obstacles will suddenly and easily clear or, on the negative side, a pending potential crisis will suddenly manifest and move through his or her life very rapidly. Either way the individual will feel that everything is moving at great speed”
– Bernadette Brady: The Eagle and The Lark
If this eclipse strongly aspects your chart, expect something to shift quite rapidly. What may initially feel like a crisis is likely to be ‘a blessing in disguise’ moving your towards a more joyful path. Trust it!
This is a good month to perform random acts of generosity, kindness and care; looking after those around you.
Look to where Libra, Aries, Taurus and Scorpio reside in your chart for the area of life most likely to be impacted by October’s Eclipse Energy. For an interpretation of the houses and how they apply to areas of life, click here.
With Mars squaring Pluto from the 4th to the 13th (as he stations-direct on the 11th) … followed by the New Moon Eclipse on the 15th … indicates October will be a dynamic and transformational month.
Powerful shifts are likely to occur and potentially at great speed.
Full Moon in Taurus
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus falls on October 29th illuminating:
“A Bridge Being Built Across A High Narrow Gorge”Taurus 6
There’s a need to close the gap in some way, whether that be a physical or emotional distance between people or a solution that needs to be worked out.
If something has arisen that feels big (potentially overwhelming), it’s important to take things step by step and stay in the present moment.
Trust that the path will appear … and it will call you; opening up as you walk.
The important thing is to keep your energy balanced.
The Full Moon conjoins Jupiter and opposes Mercury and Mars (in Scorpio) adding to the dynamic, transformative effect of October … and the likelihood you’re being called to a more bountiful, positive and fun place.
The energy is likely to be high and it’s a great month to put your energy into renovation work, deep cleaning, healing and anything requiring intensity of purpose.
Scorpio Season begins on the 24th October amidst a Sun, Mercury, Mars stellium opposing Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus & a Venus-Uranus/Jupiter Trine.
October brings the energy of the Death card (change), as energy is transmuted and transformed.
Feel the call towards pleasure, joy & upliftment. Clear fear and negativity as they arise and seek ways to live in trust.
The Scorpio/Taurus axis is also associated with sexual pleasure and physical intimacy, which can deepen now.
Saturn will slow as the end of the month approaches, making change feel like a pipe dream. Patience will be necessary and you’ll need to trust things to move more rapidly from the 4th of November until the 7th of February when strategies can be implemented.
