Warrior Mars in Aquarius makes you powerful, but choose your battles with care. Spies everywhere! With Pluto going direct September 30 in your secret house it certainly can feel that way. As if you’re trying to survive The House of Medici. That court of 15th Century poisoners…
You’re in a critical time. Intense connections from the past resurface now – for better and worse. New, new, new. Time to cut with the old. Your eleventh political friends house asks you streamline in this area, weed out, cut, prioritize. Pragmatics says it, and your astrological chart says it – look to your friends far away. Abroad. You’ll definitely want to get away when this is over.
October 5, Venus retrogrades at 10 degrees Scorpio, and your career and reputation are called into question. Venus retrogrades for 40 days and 40 nights (oh, the temptation!) with this examination until November 16 when she goes direct at 25 degrees Libra. Your powerful foray into the world looks very different by November 16.
Every 8 years, Venus goes back to the same area of your chart, so each Venus retrograde is a repeat of the Venus retrograde that happened 8 years ago, 16 years ago, and so on!
Think back to the period between October 8, 2010 and November 18, 2010. What was going on then? Therein lies your clue.
Pluto direct in Capricorn (hierarchy) brings down oppressive rules.
So which oppressive rule do YOU bring down?
You may already be daydreaming of exotic escapes! For in your ninth house of the international you have:
The awesome, life-giving Sun
Brilliant thought planet Mercury
Nurturing mama asteroid Ceres
A challenging new Libra Moon on Monday, October 8
All that is ruled by the Ninth House:
Travel, particularly international plane flights
The Law, Lawyers, Politics
College, School, Classes, Learning Centers
Churches; Temples; Mosques; Evangelical; Covens; any type of Spirit gathering
EXPANDING YOUR MIND
Religion, Academics, Education
Thinking and Planning Big
With Venus Retrograde in here – AND your tenth house – until November 15, legal matters get held up. Clarify and write everything down (and make copies.) Be clear and don’t rush.
And when discussing religion, politics, philosophy, education…well, passions are getting higher, and bloodier. Typical miscommunications in this area could cause irrevocable damage, such as losing a friend, or missing a work opportunity.
Speak your truth by all means but realize everyone’s truth gets garbled during this time, even misheard. You’ve been under too many burdens, dear Aquarius. Awful disappointments. Just not understanding – WHY.
A figure in a position of power is particularly useful to you this month. And as October ends, you are whistling – yes, actually whistling, as success is right in front of you! You’re basically taking the world by storm, your charisma at an all-time high. As Aquarius Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!”
As long as you tell the truth, you will triumph.
Whatever you’ve been giving voice to in your career – and it’s been impressive – you haven’t seen nothing get. (Neither have they.)
Even if you feel a weird deja vu of your past coming up (some of you will feel as if you’ve entered the 1980’s twilight zone), don’t worry. It’s a chance for you to reconnect.
You’ve been working so darned hard, you may have forgotten what this feels like.
A nurturing begins, a healing starts, between you and those friends you’ve left behind. Those old groups and individuals with whom you used to hang out.
So you can calm down on the Communications Blitzkrieg.
You may be feeling torn right now between fidelities (being true to yourself as well as to your mate or mates.) This is a perfectly natural and okay emotion to have now.
The strongest warning at this time?
How you conduct yourself will decide everything. Keep your grace and aplomb.
Try to get away on a short holiday. You’ll have the best time and return cool and refreshed. Exactly what you need when you’re hot around the collar. If you do get hot around the collar you could risk losing someone – so think before you speak or act.
There is the great potential for someone or something to shock you. Just letting you know so you can be prepared and stay cool!
It is best not to depend on others too much or you may feel disappointed. Hold your counsel and plan to take a Time Out. Debates with siblings or sibling-like friends, neighbors, the neighborhood: Don’t engage! Honestly, the jury is still in recess, and even the universe has not decided the final outcome. People’s advice will be crazy. This involves work projects and also lovers.
It will get a bit dramatic. Certainly uproars will erupt suddenly and unexpectedly – unless you’ve been wise and you’re reading my horoscope! Only THEN will you be prepared. I’ve got your back, Aquarius.
The stars make you keenly aware of the shortfalls and pitfalls of your current status quo, but take a closer look and you see how they point you in the direction of workable solutions. Jupiter in your career and reputation house emphasizes who’s responsible, and Saturn in your eleventh house has an annoying habit of pointing a finger. It’s time to have that stern talk with yourself – or another for that matter. Oy, these medieval courts!
Conscious effort applied will get you to where you want to be; it’s a straightforward program – so long as you keep emotions off the score sheet. Keep grounded, stay real. This time forces you to become an expert diplomat. The less you have to work with, the more creative you get with your resources. Libra’s sun sees you willing to put in the extra effort and suggests you have the right attitude as you move forward into new directives.
You work harder to gain a more secure plateau about job, economics, and relationships. There’s no reason to lie down and take it or to accept less – from yourself or from another. Status quos or strongholds can be completely altered (or even destroyed!) One person’s loss is another’s gain. Watch for hidden advantage or opportunity and act fast. Oy vey, those medieval courts!
Someone different could soon occupy the director’s chair, which either sets you back or thrusts you forward. Financially, professionally, or on a more personal note, you’re called to task and you need to hold another accountable. Venus retrograde between your ninth and tenth houses also brings a time when you run into conflict with authority, boss, or parent. Someone does an about face on you, and you find that a significant role reversal takes place.
If your adviser isn’t fitting the bill, get someone else, don’t be afraid to give up to get. Things have a surprising way of working out; no matter what it looks like in the moment, the net result can lead to a positive advance. This retrograde creates a significant redirection or restructuring of rules, policies, formats, procedures, contracts, goals, and prompt you to find better ways of exerting yourself and your authority as you navigate your way out there in the world.
This retrograde also ignites trust issues, legal issues, and relationship power struggles. You feel a sense of abandonment or the need to abandon something you once held as dear. Watch for leaks, guard your tongue, keep safe, and avoid polluted environments. Also, people who are polluting to your sense of self or who are simply corrupt.
A nurturing begins, a healing starts, between you and those friends you’ve left behind. Those old groups and individuals you used to hang out with.
Finally, and professionally, whatever you’ve been giving voice to in your career – and it’s been impressive – you ain’t seen nothing yet. (Neither have they.) You’re basically taking the world by storm, dear Aquarius. Enjoy it.
Even if you feel a weird deja vu of your past coming up (some of you will feel you’ve entered the 1980’s twilight zone), don’t worry. It’s a chance for you to reconnect.
Driven you has been working so darned hard, you may have forgotten what this even feels like.
