The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio on October 23rd at 3:43 a.m., Mountain Time. Scorpio is a water sign associated with the most powerful planet of them all, Pluto. They are a good pair. Scorpio looks deeply inside any subject in focus. Why did this happen? Where did this come from? Nothing surface with Scorpio. That’s why Scorpios make good private investigators because they get to the bottom of everything. Typical Scorpio occupations include archaeologist, biochemist, coroner, deep see diver, excavator, hypnotist and psychiatrist. Oh yes, they are also quite psychic. I call it Scorpio X-ray vision.
This is a jampacked month astrologically. Where to I start? Let me build up to the major alignment and look at Mars first. On October 31st Mars will turn retrograde in Gemini and won’t turn direct until January 12, 2023. Turning backwards on Halloween? Mars only turns retrograde once every two years and it lasts for 2 ½ months. This entire retrograde will occur in Gemini. People will feel agitated and be questioning authorities and thinking for themselves. It’s a time of unrest in people’s minds.
Now let’s look at the major alignment involved with the Lunar Eclipse on November 8th, the midterm elections. We are in one of the two eclipse seasons now. On October 25 will be a Solar Eclipse and then on November 8th is a Lunar Eclipse. The Eclipse will make for an intense election.
Not only is there an Eclipse but that strong axis squares Saturn. Lots of hard red lines in this chart. Not an easy chart, to say the least. The slow planets, Saturn and Uranus, have been square to each other mostly during 2021. But their dance isn’t over yet. They have moved back and are now square to each other again and right on the Lunar Eclipse to make their point. Saturn is doggedly hanging onto the old, while Uranus, and everyone else is moving into the future. It’s going to be quite a fight. This will be a very unusual election day.
Regarding the visible planets, we can see both Saturn and Jupiter in the evening sky. The planets are always along the Ecliptic, which is where the Sun is during the day. Once you see the planets, you will never forget where the are located in the sky. Mars is the only planet still visible in the morning sky. Venus is still too close to the Sun to be seen. I miss sweet Venus.
See you next time in Sagittarius.
