The Astro Landscape
This week starts off with a slow simmer, building toward a t-square over the weekend with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in opposition to Taurus, both square the North Node in Leo.
For context, Mercury went into Scorpio on October 9th, conjunct Venus and in an opposition to Uranus in Taurus. The opposition was exact on October 10th but the energy is still active this week. Scorpio and Taurus are both prone to stubbornly holding onto the energy of a conflict long after it’s served its purpose. Speak your heart but mind your words.
We’re still deep in the Venusian vibe, a week into Venus Retrograde with the Sun still in Libra, ruled by Venus. We have Uranus in Taurus, the other sign ruled by Venus, opposing both the Sun and Venus. Make sure to brush up on the meaning of Venus Retrograde, which will hit Libra on October 31st and remain there till November 15th.
Which brings us to this week:
Oct. 15: Moon conjunct Saturn trine Uranus
Oct. 18: Moon conjunct Mars-Lilith square Mercury & Venus
Oct. 20: Sun-Venus-Mercury opposite Uranus square North Node
The Moon moves through Sagittarius to Pisces over the course of the week, starting with a conjunction to Saturn trine Uranus. This brings a welcome sense of stability and resolve regarding any big changes occurring in whatever area of your life is occupied by Uranus.
Uranus is still retrograde in Taurus and preparing to move back into Aries on November 6th before going direct next January 6th. This retrograde is all about revolutionizing your relationship to your physical self – namely your body and your belongings. For example, since Uranus went retrograde in May, I’ve completely leveled up my diet and physical lifestyle.
The emotional grounding we receive with the Moon-Saturn alliance will serve us well as the week progresses toward a Sun/Venus t-square to Uranus and the North Node.
On the 18th, the Moon conjuncts Mars and Lilith in Aquarius, which square Mercury and Venus in Scorpio. If you need to have a heart to heart or take a fierce stance regarding attachment issues that are being brought to light this Venus Retrograde, today’s the day.
By the end of the week, Venus in Scorpio, to be conjoined by the Sun on the 26th, squares the North Node, forming the t-square with Uranus.
If you’ve been avoiding accepting the lessons of your Venus Retrograde trip, expect to be pushed into the ring anytime from this week till Halloween to face your demons, skeletons, and ghosts squarely. But remember they are not your enemies, but fragmented aspects of your own self. These shadow selves don’t need to be fought or destroyed – they need to be loved.
