Angelic Astrology – October 2017
By Rev. Colleen, contributing writer for Angel Messenger
The big astrological energy this month will be Saturn, the Great Teacher, in Sagittarius starting to form his last challenging square aspect to Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Pisces. This will become more intense as the month progresses, and we will talk about this a little later in the article.
For now, we will start by looking at the Numerology energy for this month. The month of October is a 20/2 vibration. The number 2 is a vibration that rules balance, equality, and partnerships. It is about intuition, patience, and activity behind the scenes. The essence of relationships involved with this number is about compromise, mutual respect and love, and equal give and take between both individuals.
The 20th Major Arcana in the Tarot is Judgment, the second to the last of the major arcana, and therefore describing the soul as it is getting near the end of his/her evolutionary journey on the Path to enlightenment. The planetary ruler of Judgment is Pluto, planet of transformation, and the element that rules this card is fire, the creative force that has an intense desire for change, creativity, and transmutation.
This card, Judgment, as the ruling vibration for October, gives us the message that it is time to reassess our lives and settle old, unresolved issues and karma, for we are nearing the end of a cycle and preparing for a new beginning soon. According to Megan Skinner from her book, Essence of the Tarot, this card is about a “wake-up call, a time to commune with your higher self.” This is not about judging others or yourself, but a time to recognize energies, patterns, and beliefs within yourself that need to be changed, so that you can move into a higher state of consciousness and being-ness on your Path.
The first astrological energy of significance is both Mars, planet of energy and action, and Venus, ruler of love and relationships, in a trine connection to Pluto, planet of death and rebirth. This happens between the 1st and 3rd of the month and brings transformation energies to the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine within us all. It can also be a time where forward movement in career, health, finances, and partnerships is indicated.
This leads us to the Full Moon at 12 degrees Aries, a sign of individuality, courage, and leadership. Full Moons herald in a time of releasing and letting go, and Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, is about new beginnings so we may see both energies at play in our lives at this time. This is considered the Harvest Moon. Traditionally, this was a time that farmers harvest their crops after the summer growing season, and so is symbolic of a time where we can reap the fruits of our labors, so to speak….a time where we can harvest the blessings of our efforts of the last few months. Venus, ruler of the Divine Feminine, and Mars, ruler of the Divine Masculine, come together in Virgo for this Full Moon, paying attention to details and taking steps forward to ensure our movement towards our goals.
From October 8th – 11th there are some interesting transits happening. Venus, ruler of love and money, challenges Saturn, planet of restriction and delays, Saturn in Sagittarius positively connects with the North Node in Leo, which begins a manifestation process of our goals and dreams with a little patience needed….Mercury and the Sun, in balanced Libra, challenges Pluto, bringing transformation to our thoughts and being, and Mars, ruler of energy and action, is challenging Saturn, the Great Teacher, creating a slow down to our forward movement with blessings manifested in the end through practicing patience.
On October 10th, Jupiter, ruler of philosophy and higher learning, starts his year trek through the sign of Scorpio where the focus will be about going deeper into our belief systems, to understand the mysteries of life on a deeper level. And, Venus, lover of balance and harmony, will move into Libra on October 14th where she will be until November 6th. This is one of Venus’s ruling signs and so she can now concentrate on equality in all of her relationships, and look for, and nurture those partnerships that bring the sense of equality and beauty that she seeks.
Mercury, ruler of the lower ego mind, in Libra, opposes Uranus, ruler of the Higher/God Mind, in Aries on October 15th before moving into Scorpio on October 17th. With this opposition expect unexpected information or messages to come in, whether from people, your angels, and guides, your Higher Self, or the Divine Source of All That Is. After Mercury moves into Scorpio, where he will be until November 5th, he will delve deeper into the mental realm of thoughts, ideas, and communication. He comes together and joins Jupiter in this deep, transformational sign on October 18th. This will be a time where our clairsentient and empathic abilities will be heightened tremendously, and our psychic intuitions enhanced greatly.
We have a New Moon at 26 degrees Libra on October 19th. This is about a new beginning in partnerships of all kinds….romantic, business, friendship, and family. During this lunation, the Sun in Libra will be opposed to Uranus in Aries so there can be some surprising and unexpected developments in the relationship realm…chance meetings, sudden encounters….but possibly break-ups and freeing oneself from situations that have served their purpose.
On the 22nd Mars, ruler of our sexuality and passion moves into the sign of Libra where more of this energy is given to partnerships of a romantic nature, as well as projects and ideas that we are working on in our business and career. And then, on the 23rd, the Sun moves into Scorpio which also rules are deep passions with sex, death, rebirth, and the mysteries of life.
October 26th, Mercury, now in Scorpio, is connecting to the degree of the Full Moon Lunar eclipse we had back on August 7th which will activate that eclipse energy with messages and insights, and then he moves on to create a connection to the transiting North and South Nodes, the Destiny Points, on October 30th, further signifying some important information that will be coming to us so that we can continue forward on our Path.
All month, as we mentioned at the beginning of this article, we will experience Saturn the Great Teacher and ruler of karma, coming closer into a challenging connection with Chiron, the Mystic and Wounded Healer. These two planets have been “squaring off” in Sagittarius and Pisces, respectively, since December 28th, 2016 when they met exactly for the first time. The second connection was on April 30th, 2017, and the third and final connection will be on November 2nd, 2017. Since Saturn rules karma from our past (and past lives) and Chiron is about a “great wound” that we carry from other lifetimes, this astrological transit is about clearing out, learning from, and healing this physical, emotional, mental, and/or spiritual wound(s) so that we may move to a higher state on our Evolutionary Journey. We are transmuting old pain on all levels so that we may merge more strongly into our 5th Dimensional Light Body and continue our Ascension Process.
