Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather:
October 7, 2019, through October 13, 2019
Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.
A HUMANITARIAN PERSPECTIVE
Monday, October 7, 2019
Early this morning, Mercury opposes Uranus. This aspect brings sharp excitement or intense anxiety to your thinking. Many of you had trouble sleeping last night due to the sheer amount of mental activity swirling through you.
As you attempt to share your thoughts, your words may come out all tangled, adding to the confusion. It is best to avoid any tasks that require mental stability or patience. You are distracted and possibly a bit jumpy. Move toward the thoughts that stretch you in a new direction. If it feels a bit uncomfortable or a bit enticing, that is the direction to follow.
When the Sun squares Saturn at 3:06 PM EDT, you may regret something you’ve said and question if you went too far in questioning the powers that be. Your ego may feel a bit bruised or embarrassed. There is a lesson in this situation that requires you to face the difficulty head-on. What are you learning from this situation? You may need to spend time alone to understand the effort required.
The Moon is in Aquarius today, allowing you to view the shifts of the day from an objective standpoint. Look at your situation from a humanitarian perspective to help gain clarity on what steps to take moving forward.
BEAUTY IN THE DEEP
Tuesday, October 8, 2019
Today’s individualistic Aquarius Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to the Libra Sun this morning. You can anticipate a desire to break out of restrictive thought patterns and behaviors. You will find it exciting to experiment with new ideas, beliefs, and visions for your future.
At 1:05 PM EDT Venus, the planet of Love and beauty leaves its home sign of Libra behind. It is time to stop making things look good to hold the peace. If something is hidden beneath the surface, dig into that area. Find the beauty that lives in those dark depths.
Venus will remain in Scorpio until December 9th. In Scorpio, Venus encourages you to look deep beneath the surface to find extremes of intensity in Love. This period is an emotional time that may bring an intense passion but less security. You will want your relationships to be deeper than ever, sharing secrets and building trust. If you find yourself suspicious and keeping secrets, it is time to do some serious soul searching.
The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 2:27 PM EDT until she enters Pisces early tomorrow afternoon. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
CALL IN THE SACRED
Wednesday, October 9, 2019
Wednesday begins with the Moon still in Aquarius, highlighting independence and humanitarian issues. Work with excitement and new ideas in the morning as this day has two clear chapters. When the Moon enters Pisces at 12:06 PM EDT, the mood of the day turns to one of sensitivity. You may feel more vulnerable and in need of softer music and quieter friends.
Interest in the sacred and intangible heightens. You may find yourself drawn to music, your meditation cushion, and bodies of water. Your imagination increases too. There seem to be fewer restrictions holding you to reality, enabling you to play in unseen ethereal realms. If you find yourself drawn to unhealthy escapism, in any of its many forms, choose to spend time on your meditation cushion or simply daydream instead.

BRING YOUR CREATIVE MUSE CLOSE
Thursday, October 10, 2019
Wouldn’t it be nice to stay home, watch movies, and daydream all day? It can be challenging to find motivation when the Moon is passing through the dreamy sign of Pisces. Your sensitivity is acute, and you are liable to feel great compassion for others.
Respect your sensitivity by fully engaging it today. Pay attention to how thin the boundaries are between yourself and others. See if you can pick up on the emotional state of your barista, cashier, or bank teller. When the Moon is in Pisces, the boundaries between us are thin. Don’t hold onto what you pick up. Send love and healing to the person in front of you and release any negativity. I recommend smudging with sage at the end of the day. Empathy and compassion are strong. Absorb Love and pass it to others.
The Pisces Moon (along with silence, music, and being near a body of water)will call your creative muse close to you.
OFFER LOVE TO THE VULNERABLE
Friday, October 11, 2019
Remember that the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day. With the Moon in Pisces you feel sensitive, impressionable, and easily hurt. Like yesterday you would prefer to dream or nap the day away. Please remember that others also feel this way today. You would like to avoid dealing with the harsher realities of your life today. You could go to a movie, spend time on your meditation cushion, get lost in music, or daydream. Pay attention to how you manage this loosening of boundaries and vulnerability. Don’t ‘check out’ in a way that is harmful to you. Don’t pour the extra glass of wine or zone out on the 8th episode of that mindless Netflix program.
Find a mystical thread and follow it to a place that will engage your imagination. Open your heart to compassion and an overriding sense of love for all those who suffer. Think of the oneness of all life. Send love and compassion to those who are vulnerable within your community, animals, children, the elderly, and infirm.
The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 5:56 AM EDT until she enters Aries shortly after midnight. The Moon is void-of-course ALL DAY! This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
EXCITEMENT IN LOVE
Saturday, October 12, 2019
The sensitivity of the past few days is a thing of the past. You are ready to push ahead with action, determination, and grit. While you slept, the Moon entered Aries bringing courage and fortitude. Watch out for the tendency to take action suddenly without giving thought to the consequences.
At 6:06 PM EDT Venus opposes Uranus. This aspect brings a great deal of excitement for a Friday night. After such a sensitive week, you may feel quite reckless.
This transit could signal a sudden shift in your relationship status, love life, or finances, bringing excitement or anxiety. Don’t move so fast that you forget to reason. Think before spending more than you can afford or before beginning a love affair.
If you do begin a romantic connection, it will be very exciting. However, I wouldn’t count on it being a long-lasting or permanent development. If you are in a committed partnership, now is the time to add some element of excitement or surprise. If you are single, bring this excitement to a close friendship or do something unexpected and a bit outside of your comfort zone. Sky-diving anyone?
The Pisces Moon is void-of-course until she enters Aries at 12:46 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
GO AHEAD AND HOWL AT THE ARIES FULL MOON
Sunday, October 13, 2019
The Moon continues through Aries, keeping us active, forceful, adventurous, and bold. Pay attention to how you treat others today as this Moon can be quite self- centered. It would be easy under this Full Aries Moon to burn bridges that you regret later.
At 2:01 PM EDT, the Sun forms an exciting sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter. You can feel optimistic today, and simply joyful. Little resistance stands in your way when you step forward and claim what you desire. Opportunities are there for the taking. Where are you seeking expansion? Take a step in that direction today.
The Aries Full Moon is exact at 5:08 PM EDT. This Full Moon presents us with a powerful jolt of energy. It feels exciting and disruptive. You might notice folks around you behave more erratically than usual. Sleep could be hard to come by for a few days around the Full Moon. Go ahead and stay up late into the night. Enjoy howling at the Moon!
The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 5:59 PM EDT until she enters Taurus tomorrow at 12:24 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
