In this post we’re going to discuss another tough month ahead. In fact, some astrologers are saying this will be the hardest month of the year. I do feel there are some things that are going to make it easier, however. This time I’m going to add the Rising sign or Ascendant to the Moon cycles, so you can personalize it more for you.

Before we even hit October we have Saturn going direct in Capricorn and forming and exact square to Mars in Aries. This is the first presidential debate in America. Make of that what you will. On a personal level this is us struggling between wanting instant gratification and long-term investments.

This is the second of three exact squares between Saturn in Capricorn and Mars in Aries. Knowing this, I suggest you become accepting of delayed gratification. Understand that what is meant for you isn’t missing you. Make the plan, put in small efforts where you can, and be patient as you await the results of your efforts. Keep your eye on the prize, but be patient.

On the 29th, Chiron will also be opposing the Sun. This is about confronting ancient wounds. Issues will be forced on us that we have to face. It could feel uneasy. The fact that the presidential debate is that day is interesting, to say the very least. My friend, Bryan, says expect a bloodbath.

October 2020:

On October 1st we have a Full Moon in Aries. This will be the culmination of whatever was going on in your life around the New Moon in Aries on March 24th. Keep in mind the full Moon energy can be felt three days before and after the first of October.

This Full moon is conjunct Mars Rx (retrograde) in Aries. While this does align the two, so they are working together, this also amplifies the energy. So, be cautious of those quick to argue. Make sure you’re self-aware of your own frustration and have a plan to cope with it. This can make us overly impatient.

One aspect I actually like here is the Full Moon is also conjunct Chiron in Aries. I suppose this energy could open up our wounds, but this means it’s also opening our ability to heal them. You are not your wounds, so don’t overly identify with them. View yourself as the awareness above them.

One more aspect that you may want to pay attention to is the Full Moon will be square Jupiter in Capricorn. Do not lower your standards for relationships and try not to over-indulge. This is about us not over-stepping our boundaries or allowing others to over-step. Aim for moderation and an open mind.

Aries Rising this is happening in your first house. It will be conjunct Mars and Chiron in that same house. This has to do with how the world sees you, and how you react to the environment around you. Be careful to not react in an overly emotional or volatile way. With the Chiron conjunction if an old wound is triggered there is huge potential to react differently and find healing.

It’s square Jupiter in your tenth house. This is your public image and possibly your career. So, I’d be extra cautious with the way you express yourself around this Full Moon. It could lead you to feel ashamed or embarrassed if you react to something out of frustration or impatience. On the contrary, you have the ability to impress people with how you react, too. Jupiter generally brings us gifts and opens doors.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Taurus Rising this is happening in your 12th house of the subconscious. Don’t suppress your emotions. With Chiron and Mars also in the 12th house there is a potential you don’t see your own wounds clearly, or the triggers that have you reactionary. Take some time to really get to know yourself and practice a deep self-awareness. Things could bubble to the surface out of nowhere. Your dreams could be more lucid and troubling.

It’s square Jupiter in your ninth house. There could be some sort of subconscious belief that is limiting you. It’s a good time to look at your life philosophy and your beliefs. Where do they come from and do they truly serve you? Adopting journaling or a spiritual practice could be good for you.

Gemini Rising this Full Moon happens in your 11th house. This could be the end of a friendship, the end of a group project, or the end of a goal or dream you once had. The surrounding energy for you should be overall supportive. With it conjunct Chiron and Mars there could be a wound around friendships or how worthy you feel of accepting help that can be healed.

The square to Jupiter is affecting your 8th house. This could have something to do with you being willing to accept resources and help from others. Also, how willing you are to be intimate and vulnerable with others. A door could open here for you, so make sure you keep your mind open and don’t automatically shut out any offers that come your way.

Cancer Rising this is happening in your tenth house of career and public image. There could be a closing out or shift in your career that you’re contemplating. You may want more attention than usual, so be careful how you go about getting it. Watch how you portray yourself, as this is walking side-by-side with your wounds and could make you impulsive.

This is squaring Jupiter in your 7th house. That means there could be a frustration that culminates with a partner, perhaps on your desire to change your career. You or your partner could perhaps cause the other some sort of embarrassment. This does open the door for you to heal any potential issues, or to walk away if you know the issues can’t be healed. Things that have been hanging on past their due date are expired. Let them go.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Leo Rising this is happening in your ninth house. This is a culmination of whatever has been going on with your beliefs, personal philosophies, higher learning, etc. There could be a desire to rush forward with beliefs or push your beliefs onto others, so watch out for this. A wound around this area could be revealed and you may suddenly change your beliefs and philosophy.

It’s squaring Jupiter in your sixth house, so this could bring a change in your routine, structure, or health. Try not to be impulsive or feel you have to rush. If you’ve already made these changes it could be a time you feel proud of your growth. You may learn something new to help you with your diet, health, or work in some way.

Personal Note: As a Leo Rising around the New Moon in March I was tested for Covid (March 23rd) and had a chest ex-ray. It turns out I was allergic to a natural product I had started taking. This really changed my beliefs around what “natural” is and how it’s automatically assumed safer. I had a lot of anxiety around this time that I was able to eventually overcome.

So, for me, this Full Moon may be solidifying my growth in this area. Personally it’s forming an exact square to my Venus in Capricorn as well as the Jupiter transit in that sixth house. So, we’ll see.

Virgo Rising this is going down in your 8th house. This could have to do with how you handle other people’s resources or allow others into your life. It’s time to transform something in your life on a deep level. To release something that has been tying you down. Perhaps an unwillingness to be vulnerable? Perhaps you’re too busy taking on problems not your own?

It’s squaring Jupiter in your fifth house. This could be the potential for you to heal wounds related to your children, your love life, or your self-expression. A door is opening for you here. Whether or not you walk through it is a choice only you can make. Intimacy and security need to be expressed.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Libra Rising this is happening in your 7th house of partnerships. There may some re-evaluating happening around your relationships. A professional or personal relationship could end or reach a deeper level. Due to the conjunction with Chiron and Mars this does have the potential to be something that opens your wounds. If this happens look at those triggers and figure out how you can better react to them and heal them.

It’s square Jupiter in your 4th house of family, home, and emotional foundations. So, something could truly open up that leads to the end of a relationship. You may find yourself having to move, or someone who lives with you decides to move away. Remember the caution I gave about not lowering your standards for your relationships. This goes for those single and looking for a partner, too.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Scorpio Rising this is happening in your sixth house. You may find yourself dealing with something at work or in your daily routine that rips open a wound. It could even be something like your favorite co-worker getting fired or leaving the company. You may change jobs yourself. So, rather than the re-opening of a wound a new one could be formed.

It’s squaring Jupiter in your third house, so the potential to communicate and work through issues is there. Just do so without lowering your expectations and standards. There could be frustration in local travel or with people or everyday experiences that lead to something good in the end. Perhaps something that went sour back in March is fully let go or renewed.

This could have nothing to do with work at all. Maybe it’s the end of a health issue you’ve been dealing with. Perhaps the conjunction to Chiron heals it once and for all. Or a new treatment plan leads to that.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Sagittarius Rising this is happening in your fifth house. This could be the completion of a fun project or hobby you’ve been working on. The completion or heightening of a love affair. Something could be going down with your children and a cycle there is completed. Don’t over-commit right now. Plan something that makes you feel light and care-free.

It’s squaring Jupiter in your second house. There may be an issue that comes up regarding your self-worth or income. This a door opening, likely through a frustration, for you to fully embrace your worth or increase your income. Maybe you can turn a hobby into income.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Capricorn Rising this is happening in your 4th house. Maybe you’ve been working on a home improvement project that is wrapping up. The issue of work home life balance comes up. There could be wounds around this imbalance that are healed at this time. There is no point in a great professional life if your home life is a mess. You may feel a more karmic or destined feeling with this Full Moon.

It’s square Jupiter in your first house, which is about how you express yourself. So, while you may feel like being alone my advice is open up and talk to the people you love. Don’t lower your expectations if you know they are healthy, but maybe you’re not meeting someone else’s.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Aquarius Rising it’s happening in your third house. A potential argument or split from a sibling, neighbor, or friend. There could be something that’s been going on in the community around you that comes to an end. You may be pushed to improve your environment. Communication could prove frustrating or you’ll finally realize no matter how much you communicate the comprehension is lost to the other side. You may feel overwhelmed.

It’s squaring Jupiter in your 12th house. This is the house of the subconscious, so there is some sort of unconscious pattern or habit that could be realized and changed regarding how you communicate. An open door to more understanding and comprehension. Be careful because your reactions could result in embarrassment or scandal being this involves the subconscious.

The New Moon March 24th happened in this same house. It could provide you clues as to what may be culminating around October first. This is another reason I highly suggest journaling to people. The most mundane days could end up proving to be worthy of noting later on.

Pisces Rising this is going down in your 2nd house. Perhaps work you’ve been doing on personal growth and self-worth really pays off now. You could be done paying off some sort of debt. Watch your spending. You don’t want to over-do the purchases and engage in shop therapy as a way to feel better. If old wounds open regarding self-worth don’t run from them.

The fact that it’s square Jupiter in your 11th means there could be issues with you feeling deserving of friendships, your goals, and your dreams. Resist the urge to brag and rub things in to feel better about yourself. Clearly define your own power and allow others to stand in theirs. Don’t rely on other people to feel stable and secure.

Moving on we have Venus moving into Virgo on October 2nd. Do not get so busy serving the needs of others that you forget your own is my best advice. Whatever house Virgo is for you is where this will be transiting. On the 18th be cautious. We have Venus opposing Neptune in Pisces. It can make things foggy, confusing, and disorienting.

It also happens among squares between the Sun and Saturn, and Mars and Jupiter. It could feel like a crisis for you. Make sure you meditate and reflect on whether your fears are real and valid, or if they are rooted in insecurity. The next day it trines Jupiter. This can bring an unexpected gift.

I would suggest around October 21st, when Venus is trine Pluto you schedule a day alone. Just journal, binge watch movies, cry, heal the heart space. When the 24th hits Venus trines Saturn. That weekend sleep in, take long walks, and make sure if you spend time with others it’s people who ground you.

We have Pluto stationing direct on October 4th. Wherever this is happening for you will be where Capricorn is in your chart. Jupiter has already stationed direct. Saturn will be direct by this time, too. So, whatever restrictions you’ve been dealing with should ease in this area of life. You could start seeing some progress and movement here.

October 7th America has the Vice Presidential debate. On this day, we have Mercury opposite Uranus. Expect disruptive communication. While this is going on it could be a consistent sense of surprising info coming out. A period of excitement, shock, and perhaps innovation. Travel could be affected.

Mercury enters Scorpio tomorrow, the 27th of September. Communication is far more deep and substantial in Scorpio. It’s removing anything superficial and surface level. This is about meaningful connections, intimacy, and connecting more intensely. Our minds, thoughts, and communication are focused and centered around the truth. Expect October surprises.

On the 12th of October Jupiter forms an exact sextile to Neptune. This is a positive day. It can bring us harmony and good fortune. There is potential for growth, both personally and professionally. It could even bring some form of spiritual enlightenment. We can finally feel we are in alignment with our goals and direction in life. Intuition will be strong.

The very next day, the 13th, Mercury goes Rx into Scorpio. A Rx always wants us reflecting. Of course, wherever Scorpio is in your chart could give you a better idea of what to reflect on. Overall it wants you to gain emotional clarity. Be cautious of your reasoning skills going missing.

The perceptions you have are on point, but how you communicate them could be less than ideal if you’re not careful. If you find yourself more suspicious or insecure than usual ask yourself why. Try not to have conversations from a place of suspicion and insecurity. Don’t assume anything at this point.

Reflect on how you can resolve those insecurities and suspicions. On healing childhood wounds. On addressing the compulsions in your life. Where can you transform pain into purpose?

Now we hit the New Moon in Libra on October 16th. I do not suggest trying to manifest anything new at this time. My best advice is to manifest protecting what you already have. Focus your energy there. Trying to plant new seeds at this time will result in no growth honestly. The soil is barren.

This New Moon coincides with Venus opposing Neptune. This can result in confusion over what is real and what is not in whatever area of life the two are transiting. This will be between wherever Virgo and Pisces is in your chart. Be cautious in these areas of control and manipulation.

Moving on we have the Sun entering Scorpio October 22nd. Things get darker when the Sun enters Scorpio. It’s when we change our clocks back here in America. The nights get longer and the days shorter. Scorpio shines a light on the depths, and seeks to uncover the truth.

On October 25th The Sun will be conjunct Mercury Rx in Scorpio. This shifts our focus to how we think and communicate. It can increase our mental awareness and help us become more adaptable, open-minded, and curious. You may feel like interacting more with those around you.

Right before Venus moves into Libra on October 28th we have Mercury Rx moving into Libra on the 27th. Every planet except for the Sun and Moon will be in a cardinal sign. Expect to feel the urge to start something new.

On the 31st, Halloween, we have a Full Moon in Taurus. This is a culmination of whatever was going on in your life around April 22nd. Keep that in mind as we go over the Rising Signs just like you did with the Full Moon in Aries. This Full Moon is about a disruption that reaches its peak.

This Full Moon is conjunct Uranus. I want to emphasize caution and close consideration wherever Uranus is transiting in your chart. Be careful how you react to things because Uranus is all about shaking things up.

Taurus is ruled by Venus, which is in Libra by now, so relationship issues can definitely come to a head. Some will grow and deepen, and others are likely to end. If you’ve already been having relationship issues here is your warning. Especially if there were relationships issues around the April 22nd mark.

Halloween, give or take three days around it, is going to be full of surprises no matter who we are honestly. “Once in a blue moon” comes to mind. The blue moon occurs every two and half to three years, but it only happens on Halloween every 18–19 years. A culmination of matters involving love, money, and earthly pleasures.

Gemini Rising it’s going down in your 12th house. A culmination of some sort of unconscious shake up that’s likely been happening with Uranus transiting here. A surprise revelation or outcome to a problem you didn’t foresee. Maybe something that eluded you on a problem in April suddenly makes itself clear.

Cancer Rising it’s happening in your 11th house, where Uranus has been shaking things up for some time. This involves a culmination of events around friendships, goals, dreams, or group projects you’ve been part of. The ending of things in this area that have already likely been unstable.

Scorpio Rising it’s happening in your 7th house. Uranus has been here for a bit. It’s likely your relationships have seen some upset and shake up already. If they have now is the culmination and likely ending of the relationship. Either way unexpected turns are here. If you’re single you could potentially meet someone.
