ASTROLOGICAL AFFECTS - OCTOBER, 2020

By Ren Rasa Yogamaya, E- RYT 500

 

SUN IN LIBRA: Most affected are Libra and All Air signs. The month in the sign of Libra began on Sept. 22.  FOR LIBRA: All Venus themes such as beauty, love, stability, loyalty or disloyalty, romance and patience will rule supreme until October 22.  A more heightened awareness of the social atmosphere, social grace of one’s self or of others, decisiveness and balance. The best side of Libra is seen in their polite manner, their ability to charm and their desire for justice to the underdog. The key is to know how to work on the delicate balances in Life, when to behave with diplomacy, to display empathy and tolerance and, when to let go by leaving justice in the hands of the Universe. FOR ALL SIGNS: Be more aware of your social attitude– try not to be judgmental, regardless of the actions by others. Relationships will become more important this month, especially the relationship with yourself. Celebrate this month with respect for the air around you, air within you; experience the transformational power of Pranamaya (breath control-techniques) found in Yoga.

OCTOBER 1 – FULL MOON IN ARIES: The Full Moon is in your sign. Another cycle in your Life has come to an end, with this one more significant than others of the past. As the ‘slow down’ continues you may be losing patience or are you losing faith? With relationships or with money the best thing to do is nothing. You are not at your best when you are confronted with what you perceive to be an obstacle. The key to this Full Moon for you is to go inward. Lay low and take a new path to get to know yourself – for the better. FOR ALL SIGNS: A Full Moon signifies the end of a cycle in our lives. Not just Fire Signs may be ready to surrender, release and let go. When you “let go”, you make room for “the new” to come in. Make a list on what you can part with including unhealthy people, bad habits and circumstances that no longer fit well in your Life.  Each month there is a Full Moon with a specific divine meaning and the opportunity to learn what it represents. With this Full Moon in Aries, anger, confrontations and overall chaos may come to a head. Hot heads can find a way to defuse their anxiety if they would only try harder. Miracles do happen. We can stand on the side-lines to observe or take the bait and possibly destroy our future and our families’ futures.  It is best to lay low, go-inward away from tech and social media as it is time to prepare for a new evolution to come.

OCTOBER 2 – VENUS INTO VIRGO: Most affected are Virgo, Taurus and Libra.  FOR VIRGO: This transit will continue until October 27. Venus the planet of love, beauty and relationships is in your transit again – good news! You may now enjoy your new popularity and if single, the good possibility of romantic interests.  If you are already coupled, this can be a very romantic time for you, one of the best times of the year for your love life and also for creativity. Others may seek you out, as they are attracted to your ideas and personality. A reminder: When Venus is in any sign of the Zodiac, the senses are heightened as well. Be careful not to over-indulge with food or too much of anything. A special message for Virgo: You ego may get a boost when you are singled out and receive acknowledgement for work well done. If the financial reward doesn’t seem to fit, then reach inside of your heart and soul and know true satisfaction, absolution - without any expectations. FOR ALL SIGNS: This is a time when we can express our love through practical ways, gestures, doing detail work, or just being there for our lovers. Be practical. Besides our romantic nature, what we decide to buy and the types of entertainment we enjoy during this cycle is ruled by whether or not things make sense. We may feel guilty if we are too self-indulgent at this time. The darker side of this transit is being overly critical of our partners, of other people, being too picky, or worrisome. Avoid this by practicing deep breathing at home.

OCTOBER 4 – PLUTO TURNS DIRECT (IN CAPRICORN): Most affected are Scorpio, Capricorn and Libra.  FOR CAPRICORN: Retreat and reflection may have done you well, especially if you were exhausted.  It is important to continue to keep your immune system up, if not for yourself then for the sake of others. Keeping secrets may not have fared well for you; they can still end up being used against you in the end. FOR ALL SIGNS: This transit began last April 25. Pluto while retrograde in Capricorn is a time of reflection about power, control and how it may affect commerce and business in your life, everyone’s Life.  This was not a time about gaining power, but rather a time for elimination. Elimination must happen for growth and personal change. Think about the control and power in your life. The planet Pluto also represents transformation. By natural selection, some things or something within you must die in order for a re-birth to happen. Consider all that has happened since the end of this past April, 2020 and aim to be a part of the solution.

OCTOBER 12 – JUPITER SEXTILES NEPTUNE: Most affected are Sagittarius, Pisces and Libra.  FOR SAGITTARIUS: Your optimistic side may grow stronger now as well as your spiritual vision and compassion for the underdogs of our world. Also, creativity and delving further into the arts may figure more prominently. FOR ALL SIGNS: With this longer-term aspect, idealistic and humanitarian goals may arise now. Making connections with other people from different backgrounds may figure more prominently. Generosity and compassion increases and our faith is boosted A desire to experience something new, exciting, and bold may be felt strongly. However, our beliefs and perceptions may need to find a way to uphold peaceful defense.

OCTOBER 13 – MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE: Most affected are Gemini, Virgo and Libra.   FOR ALL SIGNS: Beginning on this date, for the next three weeks, lay low in matters of communications, travel, and purchases relating to electrical gadgets of communications; the cell phone, the computer, an automobile and other electrical equipment or machinery. The written, spoken, and typed word may have to be RE-written, RE-spoken, RE-typed.  Generally, not a good time to commit with your word or sign important documents as when MIR turns direct in three weeks there will be changes. Also, the same may be for scheduling anything. Some changes may be for the better, or more likely, some of it may fall apart by the next MIR  (in 3 months.

OCTOBER 16 – NEW MOON IN LIBRA: Most affected are Libra and All Air Signs.  FOR LIBRA: This New Moon is in your sign and it sets the tone for the next twelve months. Meditate on what you wish for by writing down what you need, not for what you want. A new cycle begins now; it is the time of year that you are in your element. You may find that you no longer fear what others may think about you and that is a very healthy, new you. FOR ALL SIGNS: New Moons signify a new beginning. Are you ready to begin again? Begin by learning about something new. With this New Moon, it is an excellent time to meditate upon some of the characteristics of Libra, with love and love of beauty, nature and, being genuine. Venus, the ruling planet of Libra, affects our 2nd Chakra, (the gland that represents our abdomen and lower back).  Words for this New Moon sign are, Love, Beauty, Charm, Diplomacy and Balance.  These are positive traits that we might want to consider, to enhance, develop, and incorporate into our personalities and in all with our lives, especially now.

OCTOBER 22 – SUN INTO SCORPIO: Most affected are Scorpio and All Water Signs.

OCTOBER 27 - MERCURY INTO LIBRA: Most affected are Libra, Gemini, Virgo and Scorpio. FOR LIBRA: Some things that you thought of doing, or some travel that you may have completed may all come back for a RE-peat. This may cause you to feel some confusion.  You can avoid this if you remember your promise to yourself from the New Moon in your sign. FOR ALL SIGNS: The planet Mercury was only in the sign of Libra from September 5 until September 27. However, on October 14 as Mercury turns Retrograde, it will begin to track backwards and during this period, it will re-enter the sign of Libra-again. We can be more diplomatic and friendly. During this cycle, we are able to bring a  rational approach to one-to-one relationships. It’s a good time to think about new ways to improve your negotiation skills. See both sides of any given situation, as this can also be a vacillating energy. It can be more challenging than usual to make quick decisions.  We may too easily accommodate others’ opinions in order to keep the peace. In our negotiations, we don’t want to assert ourselves in such a way as to appear to be the “bad guy”. While the Sun is in the sign of Scorpio at that time, some confusion can also rise up. However, this is a good period for considering others’ points of view. We are more inclined to arrive at fair conclusions against all odds.

OCTOBER 27 – VENUS INTO LIBRA: Most affected are Libra and Taurus and Scorpio.  FOR LIBRA: Your ruling planet Venus, the planet of love, beauty and relationships is in your transit again – good news! You may now enjoy your new popularity and if single, the good possibility of romantic interests.  If you are already coupled, this can be a very romantic time for you, one of the best times of the year for your love life and also for creativity. Others may seek you out, as they are attracted to your ideas and personality. A reminder: When Venus is in any sign of the Zodiac, the senses are heightened as well. Be careful not to over-indulge with food or too much of anything. A special message for Libra: While the Sun is in the sign of Scorpio, a Water sign, you may feel more emotional and expressive to the point of extreme. Or you may want more and more. Stop and observe yourself before it's too late. FOR ALL SIGNS: We are more inclined to employ charm rather than aggressive behavior in order to get what we want (during this cycle). Although Venus in Libra virtually lives for relationships, there is an air of cool aloofness to this energy. We can be very considerate of others and quite willing to negotiate and compromise. We can be especially idealistic about Love. We may prefer things be done in a smooth and classy way, and are turned off by aggressive or uncouth behavior. The darker side of this is dependency, inconsistency, contradictory, and superficiality. It’s probably best to avoid the trap of gossip just for the sake of an excuse to communicate. Better to communicate with an understanding of one’s own intention than regret. If you have prominent Venus in your chart, then, this is also a time when we you, we can be more artistically inclined. We tend to seek balance in our personal environment. So, find the balance first before you begin.

OCTOBER 31 – FULL MOON IN TAURUS:  Most affected are Taurus and All Earth Signs.  FOR TAURUS: The full Moon is in your sign. Another cycle in your Life has come to an end, with this one more significant than others of the past. You may need to shift and relay to a well-meaning friend or family member or professional: You alone are in charge of your Life. Also, you are ready to let loose with that tight grip on your monies; just don't’ go overboard. FOR ALL SIGNS: A Full Moon signifies the end of a cycle in our lives. Not just Earth Signs may be ready to surrender, release and let go. When you “let go”, you make room for “the new” to come in. Make a list on what you can part with including unhealthy people, bad habits and circumstances that no longer fit well in your Life.  Each month there is a Full Moon with a specific divine meaning and the opportunity to learn what it represents. With this Full Moon in Taurus, family issues may rise up for a review with possible changes.  Home may be where the heart is and relationships do matter now, including intimate ones such as personal comfort levels, values and sexuality; these all figure prominently now. This Full Moon aligns with the planet Uranus, at the time of this lunation, adding up to an element of surprise to our feelings and revelations. The desire to experience something new, exciting, and bold can be felt strongly. Whatever you desire, consider: To NOT become stubborn about it.

Being ‘fair’ can be done much easier now.

 

SEPTEMBER 6 – VENUS INTO LEO:  Most affected are Leo, Taurus and Libra.  This transit will continue until October 2.  FOR LEO: Venus the planet of love, beauty and relationships is in your transit again – good news! You may now enjoy your new popularity and if single, the good possibility of romantic interests.  If you are already coupled, this can be a very romantic time for you, one of the best times of the year for your love life and also for creativity.

If you’ve had to take a break, the break may now be over; consider that it’s time to make peace with yourself. FOR ALL SIGNS: Love is magnificent and grand. We take pride in love, and we can be generous with our money. This is a warmhearted, expressive, proud, and extravagant period. We may desire attention, acknowledgement, validation, and adoration. Pride and passion are highlights of this transit. We have a strong ego investment in our love lives during this period. The negative side to all this expression is overstating our feelings simply for the effect, to check others’ reactions, as well as the extravagance.  It is best to remain honest and true to yourself.

SEPTEMBER 9 – MARS TURNS RETROGRADE IN ARIES: Most affected are Aries, All fire Signs and Virgo.  This transit will continue until November 13th.  FOR ARIES: Your Ruling planet Mars turns retrograde in your own sign. If past grudges begin to arise within you, do your best to not go there and leave that angry past in the past. You are partly responsible for de-railing your plans. It is time to slow things down and assess all before moving forward again. This is a good period to listen to others and shift your perspective. FOR ALL SIGNS: All of Mars’ characteristics such as heat, sexual tension, anger, war and chaos are inward. Mars energy is essentially turned inward–it’s internalized, intensified, personalized, and perhaps pressurized. We can be hesitant about taking action. The cosmos are asking us to look before we leap rather than throwing ourselves into action, during this retro. We may feel forced to re-assess our current projects and our approach to getting what we want, Rather than directly assert our desires, we may tend towards introspection and we may also be less courageous and more anxious about doing new things. Slowing down makes sense.

SEPTEMBER 12 – JUPITER TURNS DIRECT:  Most affected are Sagittarius, Capricorn and Virgo.  FOR SAGITTARIUS: Your ruling planet, Jupiter begins to return to its’ direct motion. The higher ground and momentum return even though some of it may rub you the wrong way; it’s all good. You can turn any challenge into an adventure and stir your inner fire for positive results. FOR ALL SIGNS: Jupiter the planet of good luck, opportunities and expansion, these characteristics had been turned inward and now return in full force. Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, and abundance. An up-lifting and upward, forward motion returns to our lives.

SEPTEMBER 17 – NEW MOON IN VIRGO: Most affected are Virgo and All Earth Signs.  FOR VIRGO: This New Moon is in your sign and it sets the tone for the next twelve months. Meditate on what you wish for by writing down what you need, not for what you want. A new cycle begins now, internally it may feel like the entire Universe has opened itself to you and you are able to easily travel for parts unknown. Refrain from making hasty changes to your financial status; the answers will come. FOR ALL SIGNS: A time of new beginnings, this New Moon presents an excellent opportunity for us to prepare some goals. We may do well to concentrate on new ways to get our day-to-day life organized. We might think about becoming earthy, analytical, intelligent, reserved, critical, helpful, conscientious and consider ways to enhance, develop, or incorporate these traits into our work or health. A good time to begin projects that require attention to details, making lists, checking off completed activities, feeling a bit of pride in the accomplishments.  Also, A good time to start a new health routine, research nutritional guidance such as proper foods that nourish your energy rather than deplete it and paying attention to your diet. It’s a powerful time for practical solutions in our jobs, health, self-care programs, and habits.

SEPTEMBER 22 – SUN INTO LIBRA:  Most affected are Libra and All Air Signs.

SEPTEMBER 27 – MERCURY INTO SCORPIO:  Most affected are Scorpio, Gemini, Virgo and Libra. This transit will continue until October 27th.  FOR SCORPIO: The planet Mercury is now in your sign. All Mercurial themes such as light, electrical impulses, mental agility, communication, comfort with sound and silence, attention to details will rule supreme in your current Life. A more heightened awareness of the written and spoken word including a good possibility of travel for you, be it local or far away. Gemini and Virgo may figure more prominently now. A special message for Scorpio: Speed is of no value; it takes time to germinate a plan so that it may flourish. Try not to exhaust yourself in over-drive while accomplishing your goals. FOR ALL SIGNS: While Mercury is in Scorpio, our thoughts and communications can be more probing and intense. Water signs may instinctively knows that life simply isn’t fair. We may want to seek truths in all that is hidden and uncover it. We tend to search, observe, and focus our thoughts under this influence. Our thoughts are profound. We throw away superficial manners of communicating in favor of deeper conversations. Our thinking is inclined to be one-sided mindset, focused, and even obsessive. Observe yourself before going to far.

SEPTEMBER 29 – SATURN TURNS DIRECT: Most affected are Capricorn, All Earth Signs and Libra.  FOR CAPRICORN:  Your ruling planet now returns to its’ direct orbit. On this actual date, due to Mars in Retrograde in Aries while squaring with Saturn, a major hiccup may happen and irritate you. Instead, you must use this to your advantage to benefit your plans, your work. FOR ALL SIGNS: Since May 11th, Saturn had been inward and brought about a time of limitations, restrictions, anxiety and fear. Since May, we can see what and whom have taken to the lowest behaviors with their perceptions, actions and whom or what have risen, shined through by taking the high road instead. Also, the lessons may have been hard to take; some people may now see their value.
