Today's Astrology Forecast | Friday, October 2, 2020 - Trump's Full Moon, Venus into Virgo, needing to be needed, get it done early


We started the month with a BIG Full Moon in Aries on Chiron - a vulnerability exposed. 


Within hours the White House announces Trump and Melania both have Covid-19 (probably via Hope Hicks, the loyal Trump staffer whose disappearance/reappearance has made headlines and whose diagnosis resulted in both Trumps being tested). Remember the chart showed the 'exposure' had already happened - the Moon and Chiron's conjunction waning.


You might remember THIS post connecting Covid-19 to asteroids Wuhan and Pandora conjunct on sinister fixed star Algol in the U.S. Sibley - the same degree conjunct Trump's mid-heaven (career/public life). 


And what did Pandora have left in her box after pandemic and a myriad other ills made their escape - HOPE (which I am increasingly suspicious is actually one of the ills) .

With another Full Moon coming at the very end of this month conjunct Uranus (chaos, the unexpected) and with asteroid Hygie moving over Trump's natal 12th house (endings) Pluto (death) at that time - obviously he will get the best medical care - but he needs to be very, very careful. Pluto also rises from the ashes, which I hope he does, but I would be surprised if he just breezes through this thing. Of course, caught up in a political fight for his survival, we could just be seeing that and how his covid diagnosis and quarantine impacts that. 


 Let's hope so.  


In the meantime, yesterday's Full Moon chart, as drawn for Washington DC, COMES TO LIFE. 


The Full Moon conjunct Chiron - a vulnerability exposed. Venus at 28 Leo exactly conjunct the DC (a loved/royal/loyal young woman as an open enemy?), tightly conjunct Trump's natal AC and conjunct U.S. natal Hygie. Venus in the Full Moon chart conjunct asteroid Pandora - whose opened box unleashed all the ills upon the world, but trapped Hope - which is also the name of Trump's loyal staffer (the beloved young woman) whose diagnosis led to this "exposure" - at least as far as the mundane chart goes since this is what is made public at the time of the Moon. 

Pandora exactly sextiling Mercury in Scorpio (in the 8th) - exposing surprising life and death secrets. Also the Full Moon in Aries kind of lighting the fuse for the rest of October - the astro of which looks totally cray-cray and wraps with another Full Moon, this time in Taurus conjunct Uranus ... with Hygie on Trump's 12th house (endings) Pluto (life and death). This diagnosis is no joke. And Full Moons are very powerful for Trump, since he was born on one.


Will covid transform Trump? Stay tuned.


In the meantime, it is Friday, October 2nd - Venus enters Virgo - the sign of her debilitation, since she is exalted in Virgo's polarity sign of Pisces - so now both benevolent planets are in challenging positions - more reason to focus on the Neptune/Jupiter we talked about in the Full Moon post HERE. Prayers are uber powerful right now.


With Venus in Virgo love is a verb - expressed through what we do for other people and what they do for us. Being needed makes us feel loved. 


We will be analyzing what we want and what we have. We will be analyzing our relationships/our resources/our values. The problems will stand out. We won't be able to miss them. And since what we focus on grows, sometimes things get worse before they get better during this transit. But this is excellent energy to fix what needs fixing and accept (or eliminate) what just isn't fixable. 

Virgo Suns and Ascendants get more attractive - both easier on the eye and able to attract what they want. Our natal Virgo houses get more attractive, too!

Venus in Virgo is about loving the details of something, enjoying the work, appreciating the craftsmanship and complexity of something or someone or some situation - yes, also, noticing the imperfections, Virgo can't miss those, and choosing not to dwell on them.


This is the time to get your Venusian stuff in order - your money, your resources. If you have a business - recheck your bottom line, your pricing, does everything still make sense/cents?

The Moon in Aries is challenged tonight through squares to Jupiter and Pluto. She meets up with Mars just before midnight EDT. Coming off the Full Moon and moving toward these squares could make for a stressful Friday, so get things done and out early. Take tonight off.

If you look at asteroid "Hicks" (2220) for Oct 1 transits, you find transit Hicks is conjunct his natal Pandora (11-12*) Gemini, and his natal Hicks (10* Cap) forms a cross opposite his natal Mercury (8* Cancer) with the Sun/Full Moon.

Morgan - I am going to add Hicks to my follow-ups for him. Amazing! Thank you for letting me know - asteroids add so much to the charts.
