Jupiter is retrograde until October 11 between 17º24’ and 17º10’ Aquarius.
This degree is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “A man’s secret motives are being publicly unmasked”. Our integrity is being tested. The people, situations, companies that insist on continuing on the path of lies, manipulation, power games and betrayals, using fear and intimidation as their weapons, are being revealed one by one and falling down.
Saturn enters Libra on October 29 till October 6 2012!
This is great news for those who have been single for a while, have done their work on themselves and wanted a good relationship. I believe that this will be the time when many spirit partners finally find each other and are able to the kind of relationship that make people dream in novels.
Uranus continues to be retrograde this whole month between 24º06’ and 23º07’ Pisces.
These degrees are symbolized by “a religious organization succeeds in overcoming the corrupting influence of perverted practices and materialized ideals.” and “on a small island surrounded by the vast expanse of the sea, people are seen living in close interaction.” Integrity is the only way forward. Those who have deviated from a basic honesty to themselves and others, will be revealed one by one and self-destruct. Nothing now can remain hidden for long. Truths are emerging for all to see. And as society as we’ve known it continues crumbling, we only have each other to rely on. The more we pool our resources together, the stronger we shall be.
Neptune is still retrograde this whole month between 24º00’ and 23º41’ Aquarius.
These two degrees are represented by “a man, having overcome his passions, teaches deep wisdom in terms of his experience.” and “a butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed”. Our imperfections are our divinity. Some of the greatest “sinners” became the most respected saints. If we do not judge our experiences but learn from them, incredible growth will be our reward.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation begins on Saturday 10/3
Take as many blank sheets as you will have intentions and place them out (on a balcony, near a window or in a garden) to be charged by the Full Moon in Aries at 11:10 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon.
On Saturday 10/17
take out your Full Moon charged papers and write one intention per sheet, making sure it is positive and concise. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Libra at exactly 10:33 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle.
Sunday 10/4: Mercury Sextile Mars (4:37 AM), Mercury Opposition Uranus (2:06 PM), Mars Trine Uranus (6:38 PM)
We should be careful when driving. Unexpected, sudden reactions could cause unforeseen accidents. We say what we mean and mean what we say. We express ourselves directly and honestly. Our straightforwardness could create some estrangements or reveal opposition, but at least we’ll know where we stand. Exciting breakthroughs in consciousness. We could wake up to a particularly vivid dream or in a flash receive the answer to a question which has been bothering us for a while. Expect the unexpected today!
Wednesday 10/7: Mercury Conjunct Saturn (11:38 PM)
A great day to clear our desk of back-logged work, get our administrative work out of the way and be generally efficient and grounded. Our business decisions are grounded in reality and our judgment sound and solid. We seek serious conversations and are drawn to deep, factual studies that help us structure our reality.
Friday 10/9: Venus Opposition Uranus (3:01 PM), Mercury enters Libra (8:46 PM till October 28)
Sudden, unexpected estrangements could occur. We could also meet unusual, freeing people in strange circumstances who help us see hidden aspects of ourselves. During the next few weeks, we express ourselves more diplomatically. We seek harmony in our communications with others and could become peace makers.
Saturday 10/10: Sun Trine Jupiter (1:38 AM), Mercury Square Pluto (11:43 AM)
Great for higher education, traveling and philosophical or philanthropic endeavors. We are able to X-ray situations and people which could make us more cautious than usual, seeking the deeper meaning behind our experiences.
Monday 10/12: Mars Sextile Saturn (1:51 AM), Jupiter turns direct (9:36 PM)
Limitations or delays prove very beneficial. As we work with them, they enable us to create solid, long lasting structures that support our goals and nourish our ambitions.
Tuesday 10/13: Venus conjunct Saturn (3:52 AM), Venus Sexile Mars (11:31 AM)
A great day for becoming clear as to what we want emotionally. A good relationship becomes stronger and more committed today. A shaky one may come to an end after we have become clear on what could and could not be changed and whether we could live with that. We seek relationships that help us grow and enrich our lives. Those that drain our energy are unlikely to survive this transit.
Wednesday 10/14: Venus enters Libra (3:46 PM till November 7)
We need beauty, harmony and equilibrium in our relationships and our surroundings. We could be drawn to pastel colors, agreeable shapes and pleasant scents. We seek equality with those we are intimate with and justice appeals to our minds. Our sense of esthetics could become more balanced.
Thursday 10/15: Venus Square Pluto (10:20 AM)
Not a good day for financial matters. Deception, manipulation, corruption could come into play. We need to examine both other people’s motives and our own. We should also beware of emotional entanglements today or getting involved with the wrong person in the wrong circumstances. A good day to clear ourselves of emotional habits that no longer serve us.
Friday 10/16: Mars enters Leo (8:33 AM till June 8 2010), Sun Trine Neptune (5:47 PM)
During the next 7 months, we assert ourselves in a dramatic way. Grandiose gestures, theatrical behaviors make us feel alive. The more we act from our sacred heart, the more successful we shall be. Today, more particularly, we could channel very beautiful material. The veil between the visible and the invisible is thinning. We have access to information from higher realms of consciousness. Great for meditating, healing and channeling. Artists are particularly inspired today.
Tuesday 10/20: Mercury Trine Jupiter (2:50 PM)
Great for lecturing, reading, learning, higher education, long-distance traveling and/or connecting with people from foreign countries. We are ready to absorb philosophical and spiritual concepts. Mind-expanding conversations could take place today. The people we meet stimulate us intellectually, opening our consciousness to exciting, new horizons.
Thursday 10/22: Sun enters Scorpio (11:44 PM till November 21)
The next month is loaded with intensity, passion, the need to exert courage, be loyal and live with integrity. Things could be a little more dramatic than usual. We become very black and white. Our boundaries our clear and so are the situations and people we wish to devote time and energy to.
Saturday 10/24: Sun Sextile Pluto (2:55 AM), Mercury Trine Neptune (9:56 AM)
A day where our consciousness expands greatly. We could make startling discoveries that shift our whole understanding of ourselves and the universe we live in. We are particularly sensitive to vibrations and to what is not being said. Powerful self-transformation can occur as well as magical healings and inspiring meditations. Artists will find much to work with today.
Wednesday 10/28: Mercury enters Scorpio (3:09 AM till November 15), Venus Trine Jupiter (7:02 PM), Mercury Sextile Pluto (8:52 PM)
During the next 3 weeks, our thoughts are metaphysically inclined. We could even become slightly obsessive as we search for the deeper meaning of what is happening in our lives and what our place in the universe is. No superficial answer will satisfy us during this period. Today, more specifically, is great for going out and expanding our social circle. The people we meet today are fun, exciting and expand our horizons in magical ways. We should just beware not to overindulge (food, sex, intense thoughts and profound conversations...).
Thursday 10/29: Sun Square Mars (0:56 AM), Saturn enters Libra (10:09 AM till Oct 6 2012)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph on Saturn in Libra. Today, we could be more impulsive than usual. Anger could flare up fast yet be forgotten as easily. We should be careful when operating motor vehicles and using sharp instruments. This transit is best used by channeling our energy into constructive projects requiring physical energy.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
