OCTOBER 2009 Horoscope|
FULL MOON occurs on October 4, 2009 at 02:10:11 AM EDST
This Full Moon in Aries opposing the Libra Sun forms a gentle sextile to retrograde Jupiter in Aquarius. The potential for us to reach our altruistic aims for the future is still very up in the air. The Lights in opposition can prove to attract or repel each other in the integrity of their position. Will this Aries Full Moon choose to take the stance of the Ram or look to be guided as the Lamb? In either case, the Sun in Libra speaks of the ultimate goal of peace, balance and justice. Balanced thought and focused intuition must be blended in this cycle for the best possible outcome.
NEW MOON occurs on October 18, 2009 at 01:33:05 AM EDST
The Moon and the Sun conjoin in Libra as they square off with the Dragon and form a trine to both Chiron and Neptune retrograde in Aquarius. In this new cycle, we seek to heal what ails our culture but are quite conscious of the fact that unforeseen results can occur as a result of abrupt action. Battles both politically and militarily will need to be chosen with great care. With both Chiron and Neptune retrograde, we will still be clinging to our ideals of a healthier and happier vision on both a personal and global level.
Neptune Retrograde Alert!
Neptune in Aquarius stationed retrograde on May 29th at 12:30 AM EDST and remains so until November 4th at 01:10 AM EST! Remarkable artifacts bathed in antiquity come to the fore! The Discovery Channel will have a field day! Expect even dramas to contain sunken treasure, amazing computations by ancient cultures of celestial spheres and stunning archaeological discoveries! Tributes to man’s imagination and innovation will also be in evidence. This is a provocative and inspirational cycle! As our Earth is changing, what can we learn and apply from the archives of ancient history? Stay tuned!
Chiron Retrograde Alert!
Chiron, the wounded healer, joined Neptune in Aquarius as a retrograde companion at 01:12 AM EDST on May 30th, 2009 and they draw closer to one as the months go by. Chiron remains retrograde until October 30th, 2009! Emphasis is on faith and healing and how we can tap into the cycles of history to better understand the cycles of the Earth and humanity. This can be a deeply emotional time and allows for emotional, spiritual and physical healing on the root level. Often we must return to the point of pain or disappointment to debride our emotional wounds before they can be completely healed. Experts will be delving back into ancient texts regarding famines, floods, prophecy, astrology and miracles as they seek to understand the evolvement of this planet.
Jupiter Retrograde Alert!
Jupiter stationed retrograde in Aquarius at 03:51 AM EDST on June 15, 2009 and stations direct on October 13th at 00:36 AM EDST. Jupiter is the largest planet and it magnifies everything it touches! It speaks of wonder, wealth and abundance. As it retrogrades, we will find ourselves redefining both our inner and outer prosperity. Because Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron were all retrograde and conjunct in Aquarius, many of us will reclaim our faith; seek to return to a previously more inspiring time. As Jupiter roles forward we will be formulating how to open up to a renewed sense of being part of a brighter future for all!
Uranus Retrograde Alert!
Uranus stationed retrograde in Pisces on July 1, 2009 at 03:37AM EDST and will remain so until December 1, 2009 at 03:27PM! This ponderous planet literally appears to stand still for nearly 10 days as it stations! This year, Mercury in Gemini, moves into a square formation with it for several days! This will feel like Mercury retrograde – even though it is not! The energy that emerges from this configuration is one of recollection and a call to re-envision what the labor pains of our ancestors has brought forth. This is a great time to bring freedom and compassion back into our World after strife and cling tenaciously to our ideals!
