Lately, it feels like everything has been moving backwards — that’s because most of the planets are currently in retrograde. There’s been a lot of hurdles, long waiting periods, and moments of pause and reassessment. That’s all about to change in October.
On the 2nd, Mercury comes out of retrograde, and prior blockages in communication come back into flow. This could spark an important conversation, or you could learn something interesting around this day — keep your ears open! The following week, Pluto comes out of retrograde, after hiding away from us since last April. When Pluto turns direct, it means that darkness and destruction comes forth — this intense rebirth is absolutely necessary for clearing the skeletons out of your closet in order to make room for blessings. And lastly, Saturn also comes out of retrograde; this takes place on the 23rd. Saturn going direct can serve as a harsh wakeup call for some, but it can also encourage you to set more boundaries and structure for your own wellbeing.
Coming towards mid-month, the full moon in Aries takes place on the 9th. This full moon will highlight a fresh start, along with so many planets turning direct, adds yet more of a feeling of moving forward. Prior feelings of yearning for the past are sure to melt away. That following day, Mercury enters Libra, which may trigger communication surrounding legal matters or a beneficial partnership.
The 23rd is a big day, because not only does Saturn turn direct, but Venus enters Scorpio — plus, Scorpio season officially begins! The harshness of Saturn is balanced out by the sweetness of Venus, however with Scorpio being such a destructive sign, this timing could be quite earth-shaking for most. At this time, we are exiting calm and steady Libra season, now entering chaotic and unpredictable Scorpio season. The conclusion of October will be heavy and intense, but it’s also a great time for intimate relationships.
There is a lot happening this month, because it doesn’t end there — on the 27th, Jupiter enters Pisces, which is an extremely harmonious placement. Jupiter is still in retrograde until November, but this transit is sure to bring a dash of good luck for all. On the 29th, Mercury enters Scorpio, meaning that conversations with others suddenly turn controversial and perhaps accusatory. At last, Mars goes retrograde on the 30th, which means that you are eager to avoid conflict and friction going into November.
