A tremendous cosmic shift is happening this month. Saturn, the planet
that rules the material world, will enter Libra on October 29, 2009.
It’s the start of a three-year cycle that will prompt us to take a
serious look at our relationships, peace, equality, sharing and leading
Personal and global ties will undergo profound changes as well. Here’s the scoop: Saturn will stay in Libra until April 7, 2010, when it transits back into Virgo. Then Saturn will move forward through Libra once again from July 21, 2010 to October 5, 2012. It’s time to look closely at your relationships with partners, community, and fellow human beings around the world.
In other transit news, Virgo reigns over the cosmos at the start of October, as Mercury and Venus join Saturn in a jaunt through this detail-oriented sign. Analyzing your plans, discussions, agreements and relationships is emphasized. Activities that involve health, work and service are energized as well. Just try to avoid the nitpicking side of Virgo, especially with your sweetie. Remember: nobody is perfect! Mercury and Venus will then enter Libra on October 9 and 14, respectively, which will accelerate romantic talks and love-ins. Artistic pursuits, legal agreements, fairness and compromise are favored as well.
While Venus stays in Libra through the rest of October, Mercury transits into Scorpio on the 28th, which emphasizes discussions about sex, debt, shared resources and metaphysics. And let’s not forget about Mars, the planet of energy and passion. It continues its journey through homey Cancer until October 16, when it transits into Leo to revitalize romantic ties and creative projects.
Planets in motion
Jupiter turning direct on October 12 will inspire you to expand beyond your limitations. It will also help your plans move forward, especially those that stalled around the time Jupiter turned retrograde in mid-June. It’s time to envision your future path – and then take some steps to make it happen.
The Harvest Full Moon, which takes place on October 3 or 4, depending on your time zone, focuses on the polarity of “self” and “other.” It can bring to light hidden conflicts between your needs and the needs of your partner – and those of other people close to you. Balance is the key to harmony. Then the New Moon in Libra on October 17 and 18 brings a new cycle that focuses on relating, compromise, peace, fairness and artistry.
