October ’12 Astrology

“Without our dreams we would not be able to step outside ourselves and transcend our limitations.” Diane Mariechlid

The Michelmas daisies are in bloom in New England now. These tiny purple and white flowers bloom near the time of the Fall Equinox and the time of Michelmas- the feast day of the archangel Michael who inspires courage. It was he who inspired the brave peasant George- against great odds – to fight and slay a fearsome dragon. With the decrease of the light from the Autumn Equinox to the rebirth of light at the Winter Solstice, this festival reminds us to cultivate courage as we face inner and outer darkness.

Throughout this month moderation in thought, word and deed is indicated as there are complicated influences.

In early October both Venus and Mercury will be aspecting Saturn in a harmonious way. This bodes well for pragmatic thinking and serious conversation related to relationship and financial goals.

Through the 8th Venus will also be forming an opposition to Neptune – meaning it bodes well to keep personal boundaries strong and avoid extremes of high hopes or disillusionment. Illusion and reality might be more easily confused under this aspect. It is wise to avoid the use of addictive substances during this time as well as their influence is stronger and more likely than usual to blur perceptions.

Mars will be entering Sagittarius on the 7th forming a square Neptune while trining Uranus. Guard against impulsive behavior and use extra caution when traveling.

On the 16th Venus squares Jupiter – this can be a fun time – adding  hope and optimism – just guard against the tendency to excess.

The Sun enters Scorpio on the 22nd strengthening the influence of Saturn and Neptune. This part of the month bodes well for accessing inspiration and guidance and applying it pragmatically.

The Moon will wax full this month on the 29th at 6 degrees of Taurus. A Mercury /Neptune square shortly follows – meaning that thinking and communication may be more blurry due to Neptune’s influence. This part of the month is tricky also as Mercury slows down to make its retrograde station on Election Day in the US.

The influence of the Saturn/Neptune trine and the Mars/Uranus trine this month are about having the energy and passion to work to make dreams real – while being willing to cultivate courage and work through problems that arise. Perseverance and a balanced perspective are key.
