.Your Celestial Compass for October 19-25, 2020
A Pause in the Road
The great energy of Scorpio begins Thursday where the Sun will be until November 21. Unfolding is further delving into mysteries of the psyche with influences of Mercury and Mars retrograde dredging up everything from strength and empowerment to burgeoning psychoses. Sounds heavy and for some it is however, the strength available is akin to spaces between words where you hear your own thoughts and whispers of others flowing from other dimensions.
It appears that Halloween is happening all month long due in part to the anxiousness of wanting to be more active and resume past routines that could be a theme for the rest of the year. From here on in to the end of 2020 are several holidays and what has usually been a time to feast, buy and celebrate. Seeing so many adverts one would think life is continuing as usual although for a majority times are very different. All this is part to the phase now in place from Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn that when it began affected economies, nations and world leaders which then shifted into serious times of facing realities and concerns for a lack of peace, and now we’re in a historic time that will be remembered for centuries. Slowly we’re shifting into more self-awareness that calls to bolster strength and conviction and definitions of what those are. Society is rattling and shaking in part from Mars that’s its own kind of separation from the past. Quandaries prevail for those in the limelight as to how to maintain their personas and for many others identity is as well on the table.
On Friday the Second Quarter Moon in Aquarius at 9:23 AM leads into eight days until October 31 of striving to connect and restore the greater collective, friendships and connections with others in general. It’s a great cycle to work with goals and ideas you want to manifest.
Venus trine Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, all in earth signs gives creativity to make something lasting for a long time. Foundations have deep roots. This is a good week to build and rebuild personal aspects of your life including relationships and passions.
The lunar tide moving from Scorpio to Pisces leads to consideration of beliefs, philosophies, ideologies and faith. What you journal now just may reflect insights as you later review your thoughts and discover more than expected.

Mercury Retrogrades in Two Signs!
Mercury officially retrogrades on Tuesday, October 13 in Scorpio until November 3, and moves back into Libra October 27 before once again going direct to bring back in full force Scorpio rays on November 3. From deep thoughts to striving to refine and balance in Libra and back into more deep thinking. It’s almost a seesaw of feelings because there’s a tendency to really delve into your own ideas that for some leads to suspicion once in Libra that has a downside of judgment and exacting demands. The symbol for Libra is the Scales that represents seeking harmony which isn’t always easy to find. Within those days it’s best to stay above the fray without being pulled into the intensity of demands some may push. Going within to explore your thoughts, emotions and past with the idea of refining all you feel and discover for inner harmony is offered, rather than being pulled to go outward where you fall into a stormy sea. Oddities are already afoot with the pending Blue Moon on the sacred night of All Hallows Eve so think about where you fit into the world around you. Most will have reason to ponder and reflect the many avenues over hundreds of years that resonate within through ancestors while the veil between the world of spirit and this merges. I’m already hearing from friends and others telling about dreams and waking thoughts of the past.
On Friday at 3:31 PM the New Moon in Libra accentuates realizations of where and how you fit into the scheme of relationships that’s emphasized until the Full Moon on October 31. Also, there’s greater awareness of the public and those that may not be in sync with your energy so move modestly when encountering new people and where you feel a sense of unease.
The Libra Sun opposes Mars on Tuesday and square Pluto on Thursday that overshadows the week with more conflict and global chaos. Due to the pandemic all are more pulled into what happens in the world by virtue of observing continued influence and having all the other news and experiences looped. Our planet is ablaze, flooded, whipped by powerful winds and people are acting out in ways shocking to a civil mind. Distinction between those uncaring and those enduring every manner of hardship and stress is evermore noticed. Those seriously committed to religious and spiritual service are called to nurture the isolation gap between the aloof and genuine suffering. Distancing is more than spacing for health safety, it’s also happening through the mental distance between struggle and narcissistic observers. This is part of the split happening due to the Age of Aquarius, the beginning of a 2,000 year cycle, where groups band together for various reasons. There’s a coming to terms with those realities in the next year that will change social dynamics which I’ll discuss more in later weeks. Now and next week is a time to rework and go back over what needs to be brought into order, management, gaining ground with others. Setting records and calendars straight will be helpful later.
On Sunday the Sun and Saturn square and Venus opposes Neptune creating complications for close interactions so where you can simplify and save serious commitments for another time that might be best. It’s not a time to marry unless you have a lot of karmic baggage to unpack. Someone might be deceptive and it’s certainly so that things could be innocently happen where facts or events are misdirected.
The time is ripe for understanding boundaries and taking time to realize your own interactions so that you
May restore the positive and dissolve the negative. Belief and faith are mysteries to many that are struggling with those concepts.
Mercury and Venus move into Libra and the Full Blue Moon on All Hallows Eve is in Taurus.
