Oct 2 – 8
What to expect: Relationship transformation
What to watch out for: Conflict
What will it affect? Relationships, communication, negotiations
On October 3rd Mercury is square to Juno bringing up relationship conflicts. The good news is that Venus is also trine to Pluto. We can use any form of conflict to alchemize any experience we want to see improved. If we have coal but we want diamonds, now is the time. If you have lead, but you want gold, putting the effort into your relationships will get you there. Creation often involves friction so welcome any that comes your way. Mercury will also make a conjunction with Vesta, the goddess asteroid of work, in the relationship sign of Libra, helping us to work together through dialogue and conversation. This will be a good time for negotiations in any partnerships you may have. Just don’t expect it to be easy. You’ll have to put in the work!

Full Moon in Aries
What to expect: Inner growth
What to watch out for: Restlessness
What will it affect? Culminations, emotions, relationships, balance
The Full Moon on October 5th is in Aries. The Sabian symbol for the degree of the moon is “A bomb which failed to explode is now safely concealed”, this feels like good news, given the latest tensions in the world. To get there though we must bring a mastery of Aries to maturity. Aries energy is about courage, independence, assertiveness, self-reliance, and action. But, Aries is also known for acting without thinking and the Aries lack of tact can start fights. Aries is also the sign of the entrepreneur. And as an entrepreneur when you combine acting, along with emotional intelligence, decisions tend to be good. Aries does not have easy access to their emotions. In this respect, they are like a teenager. So to use this emotional lunar Aries energy well, we have to admit to ourselves where we lack emotional maturity. The Sun in Libra opposite the moon will help us to bring in the balance. If we want to build the trust of our clients, parents, peers, what do we need to work on to get there? Becoming emotionally intelligent is often a spiritual process. We need to slow down and take time, something Aries is loathed to do. As we integrate that balance though, we gain access to our unconscious. From there we can pause to reflect on our automatic responses and where they come from. Do they come from our upbringing? Are they false beliefs that have been embedded in our thinking? Is it adopted from Society? Or Culture? Neptune will sextile Pallas helping us to tap into and locate our unconscious source and find the answers. Pallas is in Taurus, so use your five senses to help with the process. Somatic experiences and bodywork will help us to gain greater access. Visit your chiropractor, craniosacral therapist, a massage therapist with the intention of locating and release the patterns.
There’s another thing happening on the Full Moon, Venus and Mars will conjunct in the sign of Virgo. As we integrate a balanced relational approach with actions, we also have the chance at grounding our relationships and partnerships. Security is sexy at this juncture. Plans are a turn on! Make use of this time to connect with your partner to create shared goals.

What to expect: Assessing partnerships
What to watch out for: Pessimism
What will it affect? Relationships, relationship beliefs, communication
On October the relationship/partnership work continues. Venus comes into a square with Saturn. This is a very sobering energy for relationships, but one that Venus might be okay with since she is in the practical sign of Virgo. It’s time to question our relationships and examine the structure and to go through it with a fine tooth comb. Again we have the benefit of the planets in this process as the Sun and Mercury conjunct in the sign of relationships building Libra. We’ll be able to talk with ease about what we are thinking and feeling. This may also be a good time to consider a partnership agreement.
