October 2017 Horoscopes

September proved the presence of Uranus as prominent with hurricanes (or forest fires). Yes, hurricanes are directly connected with Uranus and it is interesting to read last month’s column imagining these natural disasters (including Harvey of course) having “Uranus” lines and us, humanity, trying to manage the situation, having “Jupiter” lines. This reveals some previously hidden aspects of the dialogue. Also interesting to note is that as the total solar eclipse went across the US, the hurricanes also went across most of the US. Showing another sign that something important is stirring in our neighbouring Country.

October brings Jupiter in Scorpio, finally leaving Libra. Scorpio is linked with our unconsciousness, the nature of what we bring with us when we pass away as well as what we leave behind at this very moment. Mercury, Moon and Sun will all join Jupiter one by one, respectively at 1, 2 and 3 degrees in Libra. This means that, as our Jupiter enters the mysterious realm of Scorpio, all three ­– our mind, our imagination and our consciousness –follow along. The result is simple: we will not forget about our Jupiter simply because it dives into the sometimes obscure Scorpio. Instead, we will dive in with him and start managing, dealing with, and facing those realities of our unconscious world.

The entire work we did with the Square between Pluto and Jupiter the last nine months on our power issues will be extremely useful! This work gave us the experience needed to start dealing with Scorpio energies. There will be a great change in our way of making decisions. They will be based upon a different paradigm and will be sensitive to things like mourning, grieving, consequences of difficult life conditions and will be aiming towards making progress beyond appearances. We will set different criteria to facilitate helping and supporting others and we will start investing our energies accordingly.

Another strong aspect: the conjunction of Mars and Venus in Virgo. The conjunction will form a Square with Saturn and a Trine with Pluto. This indicates that even if our emotions and desires are very strong to play in the realm of Scorpio, they are both under high surveillance (Pluto and Saturn being the best guardians we could imagine!) and should leave this Scorpio space to the planets we mentioned above.

Since we all have a little bit of each sign within us, consider each of the following as addressing a specific part of yourself. Read it all for every aspect within yourself.

Aries (March 21 - April 29) Meditation
Our spontaneous answers seem to be wrong. It’s time to ponder and let other answers come.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) Lighten
Our taste for rich food, heavy meals, abundance, physically and emotionally doesn’t serve us well. Let’s consider a fast or some sort of detox.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) Polyvalent
It is time to use our ability to understand a great variety of realities, people, conditions, etc.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Faithful
Like a good mother, we stand aside and support the overall situation with all our substance!

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22) Wonder
We are going to a land where our light will dim low. It’s the best time to notice the light of others.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22) Mysticism
Our investigating nature will seek to reveal mysteries concerning the place of both principles, masculine and feminine within the world of our unconsciousness.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22) Doze
We went through such intense times lately, it is difficult to even remember who we really are. Finally, a soothing pause arrives.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21) Victory
People start using our vocabulary. They even start planning things the way we want. Facing who we really are seems reachable and the tears it brings to us aren’t bitter anymore.

We are sharp and clear. If desires rise so high that it jeopardizes the on-going work, we quickly temper them.

During this crucial time, it is absolutely necessary to let our personality shine, despite its imperfections, so we can see it, accept it and use it.

Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20) Compassion
We know that all that happens is meant to amplify our love. Our tears are sweet.
