If you are on my mailing list you will soon receive your simplified version written in plain English that is easy to understand. You can read the whole article here, and I’ve summarized the major events for you below. I believe that we will find the intensity of the past few months beginning to subside as we move out of eclipse season and the disturbances of the major planetary alignments and begin to find our footing.
This summer has seen a heightened level of planetary energies culminating with the September eclipse series and the SuperMoon eclipse at the end of September. As we move into the month of October we will find ourselves in completion mode as Mercury prepares to turns direct on October 9th. These retrograde periods are meant for reflection and offer an opportunity to reboot all of our life systems, and once they are completed it becomes easier to move our lives forward in a more positive direction.
The only major planetary alignment to occur in October is a harmonious trine from Jupiter (expansion, positivity) to Pluto (transformation, new beginnings) on October 11th. Both planets are in earth signs where there is a more practical application of the energies which assists us in making real changes, especially helpful after years of upheaval. We must reimagine our lives now in completely new ways and continue to let go of the past. As we continue to evolve into the Age of Aquarius our psyches and nervous systems are being continually rewired to adapt to the new energies.
The North Node retrogrades back into Virgo on October 10th (using the Mean, or averaged, Node – astrologers who use the True Node will have a different date). The Nodes change signs every 2-1/2 years or so, corresponding to the progressed lunar cycle as well as the Saturn cycle. When the North Node changes signs there is a shift in focus for all humanity, and the North Node moving into Virgo signifies a greater awareness of our responsibility to others, our connection to the food that nourishes us, and the organizational details that are required for life on Planet Earth.
