October 2017 Overview
October becomes the transition month for the year, as we move beyond the time to make right action choices, and begin to see the doors open as we veer into new directions. Our new nine-year cycle has required we align our inner and outer expression with our spiritual awareness to adjust our spiritual blueprints. October begins with two important aspects; Venus connecting Mars at 18 Virgo, emphasizing the harvest of our efforts and actions, and Sun conjunct Mercury at 16 Libra, which brings forward our commitment to this new phase of our life. These two aspects set the pace, direction and purpose for the next cycle that is emerging. Venus connecting to Mars, brings the love, money and well-being to our spiritual journey as we are ready to move forward in this next phase. The Harvest Full Moon occurring at the same time, gives us the harvest for our efforts and commitment to our spiritual journey. This connection emphasizes the ability to plant the Venus elements (love, money and well-being) that will come to harvest during this time. Also Sun and Mercury emphasize the commitment to this important phase of our journey, with signing on the bottom line with relationship adjustments and changes along our new pathway. Jupiter shifts into Scorpio for a yearlong stay. Scorpio emphasizes our inner motives, ethics, intentions and values. Jupiter will provide the transparency of these elements as the shifts and changes equate to transitions along our journey. As Mercury and Sun connect to Jupiter, many new options open up according to our commitment to our ethics and values. Decisions on the 18th begin to be visible as Sun connects with Jupiter on October 26th. From this point our transparency begins to shine through and our intentions become very visible. The transition into our new nine-year cycle becomes the journey we have chosen with our heart, ethics and intentions.
October 1st through October 7th
This week October 1st through October 7th, Mars activates our intentions from the Venus connection of love, money and well-being. Mars shifts the energy of October into the TWO month, deepening our inner awareness and connection to our intentions. The Harvest Full Moon holds the efforts of all we have planted, and our intentions determining what has grown. Mid-week events open doors and begin to reveal our journey as the transition to our pathway is lit from the Harvest Moon. The curtain rises on many opportunities that are emerging to veer our life into different directions. The events occur to prepare for the October 8th commitment as Sun connects to Mercury, prompting us to sign on the dotted line as our inner decision to move forward is completed.
October 8th through October 14th
This week October 8th through October 14th, begins with Sun and Mercury connecting at 16 Libra, which signals our commitment to new directions. Signing on the dotted line with the promise of actions to follow our decision, our new phase begins. Shifting our focus, attention and actions to this direction, alignment with thoughts and purpose blend together. Jupiter shifts out of Libra and into Scorpio on Tuesday morning, bringing in a change of energy. Jupiter is in one sign per year and sets the pace needed. Scorpio rules ethics, motives and intentions. The true drivers of our life and expression come from this engine compartment, deep in our heart. Scorpio holds the power of our life and drives the energies of our life. Because they are deep in our heart, Scorpio energy can often become the hidden elements of our true intentions. However, as Jupiter shifts into Scorpio, Jupiter expands the view into our engine compartment that holds our true ethics, motives and intentions. This transparency becomes the focus and the purpose of Jupiter’s transition into Scorpio. Revealing this engine compartment and the drive we have that is our passion becomes a true perspective into our deepest heart and soul. Because Jupiter is in Scorpio for only a year, Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus only connect with it once. These connections become the major aspects that reveal the true perspective. These aspects all occur in October, November and January, opening up the options to move forward as aligned with our true motives. Mercury – Jupiter on October 18th, Sun – Jupiter on October 26th, Venus – Jupiter on November 13th and Mars – Jupiter on January 6th. These aspects become the critical turning points of our new phase, with Mars activating the stage for our new life.
NOTE: As a completion for the journey of Jupiter through Scorpio, Mercury sees the completion as a final connection (one year from now) on October 28th 2018 at 28 Scorpio. This second connection with Mercury doesn’t always happen, so a final fairwell from Mercury and Jupiter after Jupiter’s journey through this important sign.
October 15th through October 21st
This week October 15th through October 21st, begins with Mercury bringing in information on the winds of change. With Mercury at 27 Libra and Uranus at 27 Aries, the changes from this information blowing in have a specific impact on options from earlier this year. While Jupiter was in partnership-oriented Libra, many new relationships opened up, which are now the subject of the shifts and changes occurring. September’s transition of Jupiter at 27 Libra, (at the end of September) where Mercury is currently, brought important elements into view, that now in mid October reveal the changes prompted from that time. Mid-week Mercury connects with Jupiter at 2 Scorpio bring in information to opens the doors to our new directions, especially as our true ethics, motives and intentions are revealed. Sun joins this process with Uranus to shine the light onto the changes blowing on the winds on Thursday. The events blowing were spurred from Mercury’s connection with Uranus that now brings the spotlight of the Sun to highlight these changes. The New Moon comes into the picture as Sun and Moon connect at 27 Libra igniting the shifting and changing events of this wild and crazy week. Toward the end of the day on Thursday, Moon connects with Jupiter as the intentions, ethics and motives provide the transparency to the promise of good things to come, even as the winds blow in many events.
October 22nd through October 28th
Sun shifts into Scorpio on Sunday, joining Jupiter already providing the transparency of ethics, motives and intentions. Sun moves forward along this journey in Scorpio, opening up the visibility of the engine compartment that holds our true ethics. As the power of our life and expression, Sun connecting to Jupiter in Scorpio, our alignment to the driving energies of our true essence becomes visible. Thursday, this important aspect provides the true perspective of what makes us as a person. The sense of purpose and passion are the true elements and drivers associated with Scorpio. The transparency of our engine compartment becomes the perspective to see our ethics and motives, and the passion that burns bright in our heart to make a difference. Jupiter expands this transparency to reveal the true character, the true passion that runs our engines and drives our life and expression. This week becomes an important turning point in our life as the transparency brings to life our true purpose as passion.
October 29th through November 4th
This week brings our intentions into view as our outer world reveals important transitions. Moon shifts into Pisces connecting to Neptune on Monday, unfolding the spiritual blueprints that also illuminate our intentions as aligned within our blueprints. Shifting into November, a universal THREE month, a new creative energy comes into play. Understanding how the Pisces and the Scorpio create a positive trine becomes the factor of making this shift into November. Jupiter is emerging to create a positive trine with Neptune, which opens doors throughout November to blend our passion with our spiritual purpose. These connections shift our spiritual blueprints which are shifting and changing, but major cogs are turning from these two signs, opening the opportunities that are being revealed through this time. The Full Moon on Friday at 12 Scorpio/12 Taurus highlights the trine with Neptune at 12 Pisces, bringing in many new energies as the cogs turn. Early Saturday, Venus connects with the Uranus winds, blowing in many situations that are connected to the Venus elements of love, money and well-being. Setting the pace for the THREE month of November highlights these creative parts of our life.
November 2017 Overview
November activates the environment that is changing and begins to solidify the focus of our new nine-year cycle. The cogs turning from the trine of the Full Moon at 12 Scorpio and Neptune at 12 Pisces blows in many new energies that set up our environment. Venus connects to Jupiter in Scorpio on November 13th, unfolding an expansive transparency of our new focus. November as a universal THREE month brings in the journey we have chosen with our heart, ethics and intentions. We will begin to see the events of this next phase evolve to reveal the open doors and new pathways for our forward movement. The New Moon on the 18th at 27 Scorpio, brings in new directions as prompted from the transparency element revealing our true motives. This new process of Jupiter in Scorpio is moving along at a rapid clip, unfolding the engine compartment and true motives. This becomes a showing and revealing of situations without having time to make things look “perfect” when they are not, but brings in the true passion as aligned with the purpose to make a difference. Many situations become visible during this process. Neptune turns direct in late November to unfold our spiritual blueprints that have integrated the Jupiter in Scorpio elements of transparency. Neptune also builds toward a positive trine to Jupiter during this transition and becomes the cog-turning energy setting a new pace through November and December.
