10/16 (Thu)

Some people may experience confusion or lethargy relating to their path of selfless service with Neptune square Vesta (5°3′ Pisces-Sagittarius). But this aspect can also energize intuitive clarity on this topic and fuel the divine blending experienced during sacred sex.

Creative writing, harmonious relating and energized learning are supported by a Sun-Mercury conjunction (23°24′ Libra). These are further energized by a sextile between Mercury and Mars (23°8′ Libra-Sagittarius).

10/17 (Fri)

Creative writing and harmonious relating are supported by Mercury conjunct Venus (22°19′ Libra). If this interpretation sounds familiar, it is: these activities were also energized by yesterday’s Sun-Mercury conjunction in Libra!

10/18 (Sat)

No major astrology events.

10/19 (Sun)

No major astrology events.

10/20 (Mon)

Things could get unclear or confused in your committed partnerships with Neptune quincunx Juno (4°59′ Pisces-Leo). Take this aspect to the high side by keeping your divine consciousness strong and visualizing your partnerships in their optimal win-win manifestations.

Love and creativity are strongly and smoothly amplified with Venus sextile Mars (25°25′ Libra-Sagittarius). This is a good time to initiate or deepen a relationship or indulge your artistic side, and is also a good aspect for financial opportunities.

As Libran Mercury keeps making aspects, the same themes — creative writing, harmonious relating and energized learning — keep getting re-energized. The triggering aspect this time is a Mercury-Jupiter sextile (19°1′ Libra-Leo).

solar eclipse 10-23-14Scorpio Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse (an extra-powerful New Moon) occurs today at 5:57 pm EDT (0°24′ Scorpio). New beginnings in the Scorpionic areas mentioned in the prior paragraph are strongly energized.


This eclipse has very tight conjunctions which highlight relationship and creativity (Venus) as well as feminine assertiveness and strategic planning (Pallas Athena). A sextile from Mars makes new beginnings easier, while a Neptune trine makes it easier to hold divine consciousness and receive creative inspiration.

This lunation’s Sabian Symbol is, “A sight-seeing bus filled with tourists.” Scorpionic energy can dive deeply, even obsessively, into the depths it’s investigating. This image reminds us to come up for air once in a while to get a larger perspective on the situation!

10/24 (Fri)

Fairy dust is thick in the air with three magical quintiles: Mercury-Mars (16°50′ Libra-28°50′ Sagittarius), Sun-Jupiter (1°35′ Scorpio-19°35′ Leo) and Venus-Jupiter (1°35′ Scorpio-19°35′ Leo). Take advantage of this special day filled with creative inspiration and divine connection!

10/25 (Sat)

A Sun-Venus conjunction (1°48′ Scorpio) can support deep psychological processing in relationships, tantric sexuality and wealth creation.

Mercury Direct

Mercury, which turned retrograde on 10/4, turns direct at 3:17 PM EDT. Time to start implementing the action steps you contemplated while Mercury was retrograde!

The Mercury-Uranus-Pluto T-square that started on 10/21 peaks today and ends on 10/29.

10/26 (Sun)

Mars transits Capricorn today through 12/4. This placement can help you go the distance with Energizer Bunny productivity!

10/27 (Mon)

An easy flow of divine connection, inspired creativity and merging with the divine in the world around you is energized by a Venus-Neptune trine (4°54′ Scorpio-Pisces). If a relationship opportunity seems too good to be true, get a reality check from someone who isn’t wearing rose-colored glasses.

10/28 (Tue)

Merging with the divine can bring powerful transformation as the Sun trines Neptune (4°53′ Scorpio-Pisces). Actors, musicians, artists, dancers and writers can enjoy a new level of creative power and inspiration!

No major astrology events.

10/30 (Thu)

Your strategic planning can enjoy greater inspiration with Neptune trine Pallas Athena (4°52′ Pisces-Scorpio). Your inner wisdom can also support your feminine assertiveness and practical creativity.

Sorry, no major astrology events on Halloween!

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.
