October 18 Full Moon/Eclipse also the Sun will enter Scorpio Wednesday, October 23 at 2:10 a.m. east coast time zone.
October 18 is a fine time for your actions to prove that you are reliable and that those you care about can depend on you. This could also have to do with being at a new job and feeling that you still want to prove yourself.
October 18 a Full Moon Eclipse takes place at 7:38 p.m. with the Moon at 25 degrees of Aries and the Sun at 25 degrees of Libra. Research says that this eclipse can be viewed: in Europe, eastern North America, and eastern South America, western Asia and in Africa. With the aspect that took place yesterday between the Moon, Uranus and Pluto we know that this eclipse will not be mellow. I expect to see more storms and also more conflicts that require a fair manner of dealing with global situations.
October 21 is when Mercury turns retrograde at 6:29 a.m. until November 10th at 2:14 p.m. Scandalous accusations will come out when Mercury turns direct in mid November. Meanwhile don’t sign any legal documents while Mercury is retrograde unless you read everything carefully and then re-read it again. As always to travel while Mercury is retrograde means that it’s likely that there will be delays. Not always, but usually.
October 23 the Sun enters Scorpio at 2:10 a.m. and remains in this observant, suspicious, psychic, loyal, steadfast, deeply emotional, very determined, watery sign until November 21 when the Sun will, at that time move into Sagittarius. Right now with the Sun in Scorpio you might find yourself thinking about the subject of life after death and finding those on the internet who have had near death experiences. There are plenty of them on YouTube. This time of the year also has to do with “endings and new beginnings.” Maybe you’re drawn to getting rid of things you don’t need that you once were very attached to. You could find yourself making room for something new to enter your life. Scorpio has had plenty of “bad PR,” in the past. I don’t see it that way. Scorpio energy is about connecting with the determination deep within …for self improvement.
October 23-25 the Sun in Scorpio is in a positive aspect to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect will open up your psychic centers and offer you profound information on a feeling level. You can ask in meditation or prayer to have the intuitive knowingness of how to make constructive use of this information. Healing energy can flow through you if you ask for, “the highest good for this person to manifest now, with ease.” That’s an example. You are probably feeling more sensitive and open during these few days especially if you are a Scorpio, Cancer or Pisces born person.
October 25 & 26 Venus will be awkwardly aspecting Jupiter which is a time when temptation to over indulge in sweets and or alcohol is strong.
October 27-29 Mercury is conjunct Saturn in Scorpio. This aspect finds you with a focused mind ready to do detail work or research for writing an article or book. The down side of this aspect is that it opens the door wide open to negative thinking. Be alert.
October 29-31 Mars is in an awkward aspect to Uranus. Any time that these two planets are in an “awkward” aspect there’s trouble. It signifies fast driving, recklessness, impatience, angry reactions, and danger. It’s known as “an accident prone time.” So, please be careful. Use it wisely if you will by being adventurous and going for a hike or doing something athletically with others where you end up in a sweat, like basketball or volleyball.
October 30-November 1 the Sun and Mercury are in Scorpio nicely aspecting Pluto in Capricorn. This is excellent for writing down your goals, dreams, and plans for the next month or so. Be clear and honest with yourself about what you want to heal and transform in your life.
Ananur studied with Isabel Hickey in the early 70’s and other teachers as well. “Issie,” as we called her has a wonderful book if you want to learn Astrology, “Astrology, A Cosmic Science.” She also wrote an informative metaphysical book cleverly titled, “It’s All Right.” Both are found on amazon.com Another book that I always recommend is by Gangji, called, “The Diamond in Your Pocket.”
