October Astrology 2017 Predictions
Welcome to your October astrology 2017. Your year of manifesting begins now! Find out how 2 key planets changing signs is a game changer for you me, and everybody else.
Venus Conjunct Mars October 5
The October astrology of 2017 is taking off. The full moon in Libra on October 5th is not only a harvest moon, but an end to sexual tension. Venus has been chasing Mars all year long, in Feb they were only 5 degrees apart, but then Venus went retrograde in Aries and Pisces.
Venus has finally caught the object of her desire, Mars in Virgo. What have you been chasing for all of 2017? On October 5th you just might catch it. As we enter the last quarter, what are you harvesting now? What would you like to give birth to next?
Jupiter enters Scorpio October 10
On October 10th Jupiter enters Scorpio for a 1 year stay in the deep waters of transformation. Jupiter has spent the past year in the diplomatic halls of Libra, just trying to make sure everyone gets along.
Jupiter wants to expand everything he touches and wants to bring inspiration, expansion and understanding to the sign he inhabits.
Libra can be superficial and being Venus’s domain a little too focused on social interactions and idle talk.
When Jupiter enters Scorpio, he will go deep and expand understanding in the areas of spiritual growth and liberation. Jupiter, or guru, will root around in the dark waters of the subconscious, or psychological hangups in order to inspire transformation.
Once Mars joins Jupiter in Scorpio in December we can really make progress in this area.
The October astrology 2017 includes the end of the Jupiter Uranus opposition which began in the fall of 2016. We saw the last pass of this opposition on September 27th. Most likely there was some part of your life during 2017 that while moving forward and expanding was making you crazy! That place where you could move forward but had to balance other’s needs, your needs, or just consider what was fair every step of the way.
This tug of war of trying to establish give and take should wane as Jupiter enters Scorpio and finally Mars joins him in December. Mars will be dealing with the scales of Libra himself and not geared up for action until then.
Venus enters Libra Oct 14
On October 14th, Venus enters Libra, one of her home signs!
With Venus on her home turf, expect life to be a little sweeter. While in Virgo, Venus was picky, complaining and overwhelmed by the details. In Libra, she can enjoy conversation, friends, a glass of wine and beautiful and comfortable surroundings.
Here in October, we get a little pause, a quick break, maybe a quick smoke and conversation with a friendly stranger…as we head back home on a crisp fall evening…go home and listen to a hypnosis CD to stop smoking…and dream of snakes coiled around our feet.
Sun enters Scorpio and Mars enters Libra Oct 23
On October 23rd, the Sun moves into Scorpio, and the nights grow longer and colder. The Sun’s path moves closer to the horizon and the energy focuses inward.
On the same day, Mars enters Libra. Mars is now in the house of Venus and feels far from comfortable. The warrior planet seeks the battlefield and problems to solve, enemies to slay,places to be bold and powerful.
The house of Venus has too much fragile china, and fine paintings, and silk rugs for the warrior’s taste. He feels uncomfortable and doesn’t know how to act.
Alas, we will have to wait until Dec 10 for Mars to join Jupiter in his own domain of Scorpio.
Mercury enters Scorpio and conjunct Jupiter October 17
On October 17th, Mercury enters Scorpio and conjuncts Jupiter. Perhaps Mercury uncovers a secret for Jupiter to investigate further.
New Moon in Libra Oct 19
And on October 19, the New moon at 26 degrees Libra marks new beginnings in the house of relationships.
By the end of October, we have 5 planets in Libra or Scorpio.
The first 3 quarters of 2017 have been crazy, fast and furious, full of quick changes it’s been hard to find a spot to rest. The October astrology 2017 invites us to go deep within to gain understanding of the parts of us that are driving the car and we don’t even know it.
