Monday October 19th we have a number of important aspects happening on this day but the big one in my eyes is Mercury retrograde in Scorpio opposite to Uranus in Taurus. This was also an aspect we had on October 7th when Mercury was direct. If I recall correctly on that day we had the Vise Presidential debates and the day before this the president of the United States decided to stop the negotiations for another stimulus package and that in turn created a 300+ drop in the stock market.
Let’s examine this a little. One of the things Scorpio rules is investments and other people’s money. While in an opposition to Uranus, the planet well known for representing sudden changes that get us out of our comfort zones, we do expect some sudden changes to occur. Many of the financial astrologers are paying attention to Uranus in the sign Taurus because Taurus rules finances and money as well as the earth and ground and we are in shaky territory.
Later next year 2021 when Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius there will be more larger rumblings in regard to the stock market. But back to now.
BACK TO NOW
This week and even a few days before Monday we may very well see another adjustment in the stock market due to the conversations that are being had and made public. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio is quite willing to reveal our secrets now and open up investigations. I realize this type of thing feels never ending in 2020.
Now, let’s put all of this public stuff aside and talk about how you and I can use it on the personal plane.
Now may be a good time to take that deep dive into some of the emotions that you feel you need to release. (I didn’t say it would be an easy subject just a personal one). We have a chance with Mercury retrograde in Scorpio to truly clear out some old wounds and painful experiences. Bring them to the surface so we can get to the bottom of these experiences once and for all. You may even want to get professional help with this if it feels too heavy to handle alone.
On the other hand, we really don’t have to do anything to make this happen. All you have to do is set the intention then take that first step toward releasing or clearing whatever it is. I find meditating and shamanic practices to be helpful in times like this, also listening to some hypnotic music or guided meditations.
Thursday October 22
Also this week on Thursday October 22nd the Sun enters Scorpio. This is the month of depth and deep emotional connects. This change happens at 7:00 PM ET. The day before the Moon in Capricorn is making her rounds with Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn late in the night of the 22nd. What does all this mean? Moon conjunct Jupiter can be generous expansive optimistic in regard to the things that we’re trying to build upon. The Moon conjunct Pluto intensifies the feelings that we’re going through increasing drama and intensity.
The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio at 7:00 PM on Tuesday the 22nd and remains in this sign till November 21st. Now the you know what hits the fan. A month of intensity, a lot of mudslinging, a lot of secrets coming to the surface, just what we need more of. Sounds like a very intense before and after political season. I’ve always known that this time of year for 2020 was definitely going to be very intense as our country tries to find its’ footing after a super rough year so far. This however is going to take more time.
Friday October 23
Moving on to Friday October 23rd just after midnight ET the Moon makes its conjunction to Saturn in Capricorn. While this aspect is in the middle of the night we can still feel it. This transit can represent in a number of ways; one would be insecurity and shyness. Another way would be to get back to work and take a break from emotions for a little while. However, the strong Scorpio energy that is present won’t let us have an emotional break for long.
Saturday October 24th with Venus and Saturn in a harmonious earth trine we can feel grounded for a little while. As a matter of fact Venus will trine all the Capricorn planets this week and over all that will be our anchor in a week that could be overly emotional especially if you are not able to handle all the yuck in the news that may be triggering for some. Venus as the Earth Goddess Virgo wants us to get outside and connect with nature especially if you are feeling overwhelmed.
Sunday October 25
The conjunction of the Sun and Mercury happens on Sunday the 25th. These two are also at the same declination and this means the intensity of Scorpio is amplified once again. We can go down that rabbit hole of secrets and lies and ugliness or we have an opportunity to sharpen our intuition and trust our instincts. We always have choices.
Late in the evening on Sunday the Moon enters Pisces, find your favorite beverage, grab a good book or TV show and get comfortable. The Pisces Moon wants to get lost for a little while. Who cares that Monday is tomorrow.
There is always more to tell and in the Video Forecast more came through so check that out too. Here is the Link to that page. Also in my weekly live broadcast on the Patreon platform we go ever further into what all this means. I hope you can join us there.
