Today and Tomorrow's Astrology Forecast | October 8th - 9th, 2021 - getting something started/moving forward, clarity, attracting old gold and old love, ironing out the details, revising an agreement



We have a lot going on over the next couple days! You are already feeling this.


On FRIDAY, the Moon is deep in Scorpio - we are nourished by getting to the bottom of things (and the kind of 'hitting rock bottom' that precedes an emotional overhaul), intensity, intimacy, secrets, power, control. She opposes a retrograde Uranus (in Taurus) at 8:59AM EDT. This is unpredictable energy, good for changes through elimination - clearing our closets, inboxes, plugging money/energy leaks. The Moon trines a retrograde Neptune at 8:52PM EDT (compassion, art, spirituality) and squares a retrograde Jupiter at 11:03PM EDT.


The Sun meets Mars at 15 degrees Libra - starting a new cycle. 


This is a GO. Just keep in mind this is happening in balanced Libra, so we want to be seeking fairness, beauty, civility. We have to take the other person into consideration, too. The Sun opposed Mars almost exactly one year ago (October 13, 2020) - that was the culmination/ending, our relationships were rocking and rolling and maybe not in a good way. Now we have the fresh new BEGINNING. New relationships. New energy brought into our existing relationships. New ways to achieve greater balance/justice.  


A light shines on what we have to do to get what we want.

Mercury retrograde sextiles Juno (in Sagittarius) - this is part two of a three-peating aspect - their first dance was back on September 9, 2021. This is opportunity for agreement within our partnerships/contracts. Balanced/harmonious/agreeable communication is supportive. Something has changed in the last month, since we are now revising/reviewing, but still things are looking up/more hopeful/expansive. Just keep in mind that sextiles require some efforting on our part. We will get the third Mercury/Juno sextile with Mercury direct on November 4th - when the deal is sealed. 

On SATURDAY, the Moon in Scorpio goes void off a sextile to Scorpio ruler Pluto at 2:05AM EDT and will be void until 11:24AM EDT (sleep in you won't miss anything important) when she moves into Sagittarius. Now we are nurtured by something BIGGER, bolder, more expansive, our hope/faith/big picture beliefs. She meets up with Venus at 3:36PM EDT and sextiles a retrograde and stabilizing Saturn at 10:23PM EDT. 

Her meeting with Venus happens just as Venus is crossing over the South Node. The South Node of the Moon is a portal to our most common patterns, our past lives and ancestral inheritance. Old loves, hopes, beliefs, money situations are activated now. Maybe something from the past makes us feel more hopeful/expansive. Past life/old situations with love, money, our values and self-esteem are energized. We are attracting old gold/old love and people and situations that feel familiar. Something could fall right into - or out of - our laps this week. The Moon fires up this situation today and makes things more emotional.


AND this is happening while a retrograde Mercury, the ruler of the North Node (future) is meeting the Sun and then Mars! This adds another layer to the Venus/Moon/South Node story.  


A retrograde Mercury meeting the Sun (at 16 degrees Libra - people with cardinal planets/points near the middle degrees are on fire this week) is the inferior conjunction of the Sun/Mercury cycle. HERE (what is happening now, what we are talking about/thinking about/finding out) is what this Mercury retrograde back and forth has been/is all about. Even though Mercury is still retrograde and reviewing/revising, etc - there is some CLARITY/insight now. Then Mercury takes this clarity to Mars - who had his own fresh start with the Sun just yesterday. Now our thinking and our actions are working together. We want to be taking action AND we want to continue to let this story unfold a bit/expect some revisions as Mercury's retrograde journey continues.

How this works into the Venus/Moon/South Node depends on what we do with what we learn. Mercury rules the North Node - the future, our smoothest path ahead - and Venus is opposing the North Node now. The familiar may not be the best way to go. Karmic doesn't mean 'happily ever after', it really just means unfinished. 


But if we are smart and play our cards right we might be able to get the best of both worlds - familiarity/comfort AND something lighter/smarter/fresher all at the same time. This is all about Libra, so again, focus on cooperation/collaboration, civility, balance, fairness. This is a tricky week, probably uber challenging for some of us being directly impacted, so if you are breezing right through this stuff, keep in mind other people might not be - be kind ....
