Dear NightFall Astrology readers,
Have you had enough of this contradictory energy? I know I do! Well, things have already started to become a little bit clearer and slowly but surely move again, with Saturn and Pluto turning stationary Direct last week. But, it’s all still quite intense as they haven’t started moving yet. What’s for sure, Pluto has already started bringing a lot of secrets out since last week and Saturn showing new governmental positions and policies (after reviewing it all during Saturn’s retrograde). Examples are the Pandora papers, the Facebook whistleblower case, Poland declaring part of the E.U. treaties unconstitutional, and many other worldwide financial and governmental scandals.
This week isn’t without contradictions, though. We have 2 significant aspects with the Sun: one will be very auspicious and the other intense and challenging. Also, Mercury will be stationing before it goes Direct next Monday. Here’s your weekly horoscope.
- From October 11th until October 14th (exact on October 13th), Venus in Sagittarius will be in a harmonious sextile with Saturn Direct in Aquarius. This is positive energy and an opportunity to plan real estate purchases or construction, stabilise old friendships and relationships, settle any lingering conflicts and misunderstandings, and negotiate long-term deals and contracts. Avoid signing anything new before Mercury turns Direct, though.
This aspect will be most beneficial for Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Aries, and Sagittarius.
Scorpio and Pisces can reach a compromise in their relationships.
- From October 12th until October 17th (exact on October 15th), the Sun in Libra will be trining Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius. Mars will also be starting to trine Jupiter until the end of next week (the aspect becomes exact on October 19th). This is a beautiful transit that brings optimism and energy for achievement. Both alignments will give us the will and the ambition to act towards our dreams and goals.
This alignment will support Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, Aries, and Sagittarius the most.
- From October 15th until October 18th (exact on October 17th), Mercury retrograde in Libra will be sextiling Venus in Sagittarius. This transit brings a wonderful opportunity to get in touch with old friends and acquaintances, do something fun with a significant other (such as going on a short weekend trip), and open ourselves up in our communications in general. Make sure to double-check any information you give and receive, though, and avoid getting into new relationships despite the strongly adventurous urge that Venus in Sagittarius is awakening in all of us, as Mercury is still retrograde.
This transit will be most auspicious for Sagittarius, Leo, Aries, Libra, and Aquarius.
- The breeziness of the Mercury/Venus sextile will be shaken up, though, with the Sun in Libra squaring Pluto Direct in Capricorn this weekend. This is a very challenging aspect that can give way to a lot of aggression due to suppressed anger and resentment, excessive impatience, and unnecessary conflicts. If you get overwhelmed by such negative emotions, don’t act on them immediately, chances are that if you find yourself in a situation where you’ll have to stand your ground, you can get into the trap of self-righteousness and realise that you were wrong.
With 3 planets in the Air sign of Libra this week, taking a more logical and rational look at things will give better results.
This aspect will be most challenging for Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, and Libra.
Taurus will be in a strong position for making significant progress in their career.
Hang on tight! One more Mercury retrograde week to go!
