Welcome to eclipse season! We have two eclipses this month, the first on October 14th, a new Moon solar eclipse at 21° Libra and the second on October 28th, a full Moon lunar eclipse at 5° Taurus.
The first will be visible in a large part of the western United States and has more difficult aspects associated with it. There is an inconjunct aspect from a retrograde Uranus at 21° Taurus and a waning square of Mars in early Scorpio to Pluto at 27° Capricorn.
These are tense and volatile aspects so use caution in your travels and worldly affairs during the second week of October.
Both eclipses occur in signs that are ruled by Venus so there may be financial matters that need attention or a course correction for the country since the eclipse is visible here in the US.
If you have planets in your natal chart around 21° of cardinal signs or 5° of the fixed signs you can look forward to big changes in the coming year. Lucky me, I have two planets in Libra within 1° as well as one in Taurus within 1° so the adventure continues to unfold in my piece of paradise.
Pluto goes into direct motion on October 10th at 27° Capricorn 53’ so he is quite powerful for the next two months. This is the last pass of Pluto over the 27th and 28th degrees of Capricorn for another 248 years so there may be more scandals coming up for big business and government that demand rectification so positive transformation can occur.
