We're in for a wild ride this week! As we kick off the workweek, the Sun/Mercury conjunction (which came exact on Sunday) will be squaring the deeply revealing and transformative Pluto in Capricorn. Be prepared for some shock and awe, as this indicates some dark secrets that have been hidden below the surface are ready to be communicated and illuminated as they are brought out into the light of day! And of course, the main event this week is a HUGE shift as Jupiter makes its way into Scorpio on Tuesday, further highlighting all things dark, secretive, sexual, and deep.

Monday (10/9): Mercury and the Sun in Libra begin to move out of their conjunction and into a challenging square with Pluto in Capricorn today! This dark and revealing aspect will bring intense communications, as secrets that have been hidden deep below the surface will become illuminated for all to see. Mercury in the mix can bring penetrating thoughts and laser focus as we channel our mental energy into important projects or research. With the Sun in square to Pluto, power struggles are almost certain to surface, shining light onto areas of imbalance in our lives. This energy is excellent for letting go of situations and relationships that strip us of our power— allowing us to take back control over our own lives! While this energy can leave many of us feeling dark and cynical, when channeled positively this aspect can catalyze us to see things more truthfully and will help us break through barriers to our own success.
Tuesday (10/10): On October 10th, Jupiter moves from the balanced and harmonious sign of Libra into the intense, passionate, and deeply psychic sign of Scorpio, where it will remain until November 8th, 2018. Throughout the course of this transit, deep secrets will be expanded on and brought out into the open and difficult Truths that have been suppressed and repressed will be revealed. On an interpersonal level, this transit brings intense and passionate connections that reach far beyond the surface of the mundane. In Scorpio, Jupiter desires to get to the core nature of everything it touches, shining the spotlight on all things dark, hidden and taboo.
Sly and mysterious Scorpio is very protective of that which it holds dear, but with Jupiter in the mix the unseen realms are expanded on, and occulted information is more readily shared. During this time we will see an exponential expansion on all topics deemed profane or taboo. Scorpio is the sign associated with sex, death, debt, power, and the underworld— and over the course of the next year; all of these topics will be given the limelight. Jupiter in Scorpio forces us to face our deepest fears and draws attention to the slimy underbelly of our psyches that we’d normally prefer not to look at. In typical Jupiter nature, this will, of course, prove to be a good thing overall as that which remains unexamined and repressed tends to wreak the most havoc. Making the unconscious conscious is what this transit is all about, and it’s shaping up to happen in a grandiose way!
Wednesday (10/11): Mars in Virgo is coming out of its conjunction with Venus, which came exact last week, and into a challenging square with Saturn in Sagittarius. This indicates that relationships, connections, contracts, and other Venusian situations initiated around the time of this conjunct may run into some early delays. Beyond that side of the energy, Mars square Saturn may cause a bit of frustration. With Mars in the mix, there is an impetus to act, but Saturn demands that we slow down, take things step-by-step and follow the rules. This aspect requires that we do things the RIGHT way, rather than the fast way, and any damper that’s put on our plans is designed to get us to do just that!
Thursday (10/12): Mercury in Libra makes a supportive sextile over to Saturn in Sagittarius, softening up yesterday’s difficult aspect between Mars and the planet of challenge, lessons, and hard work! This is excellent energy for making long-term plans and working diligently toward our goals! Communication can become more structured and serious throughout the day today, which is excellent for business activities of any kind!
Have a beautiful week! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! ☺
