PLANET CHANGES FOR OCTOBER, 2015
Aren’t we all glad to be beyond the eclipses of September? I know I am, and looking forward to more positive energies in October, especially as Mercury soon gets out of retrograde!
October 6 – Mercury gets out of its combustion with the Sun. This has been going on since September 24th. When a planet is traveling too closely to this fiery orb, its qualities get “scorched” a bit. Thus, in the case of Mercury, tactfulness, diplomacy and clear communication could have gone by the wayside. Everyone would have been affected but especially those with Rising, Moon or Sun signs of Gemini and Virgo in the Vedic Astrology system.
October 9 – MERCURY GOES DIRECT! Returning to direct motion after its three weeks of “going backwards” allows all the areas that Mercury governs to experience smooth functioning again (see above), so this is especially good news for the Virgos and Geminis. Mercury also rules commerce as well as communication in general, plus the intellect. I expect that decision-making for many people can now be somewhat clearer and freer of underlying dysfunctional patterns.
October 17 – SUN moves into movable air sign LIBRA. The Sun will spend one month in this, its sign of debilitation. It is at its weakest here but Libra’s symbol is the scales of justice. One thing the Sun signifies is government. Thus it is possible this harmony-loving sign of Libra will help bring fair play and balance back into certain current imbalances in governmental-controlled systems. We can hope for the best.
October 26 – Mercury once again becomes combust the Sun. This condition will last all the way to December 13th. We will need to guard against speech that seems more irritable than usual, and try harder to have patience with the foibles of others. Yes, I know; at times that does not seem easy! This will be one of those times.
October 29 – Mercury enters Libra where it will stay until November 16th. I know you are probably thinking, “Is it ALL ABOUT MERCURY THIS MONTH?” That does seem to be the case, as other than the sign changes of the Moon every 2.5 days, and the Sun doing its once a month shift on October 17th, Mercury is the only planetary player going through changes this month. Let’s hope this means more of an “all quiet on the western front” set of experiences for those ruled by the other planets!
