Weekly Forecast: October 9-13, 2023 – Pluto Direct And Mars Into Scorpio

halloweenVenus newly in Virgo spends Monday closing its opposition to retro Saturn in Pisces. The Moon finishes up in Leo with a trine to retro Chiron, a square to retro Uranus, and a quincunx to stationing Pluto. Coming out of an explosive weekend, it’s not the worst thing to face slowed gains with a fiery mood primed for getting it right the second time: revolution and transformation.

Monday is perfect for expecting little and appreciating what you already have. Don’t rush it, maneuver.

Tuesday’s Virgo Moon opposes retro Saturn then conjoins Venus. The collective mood favors taking another look at boundaries and barriers. Perhaps there’s a better route to success when the nuts and bolts of things are taken into account.

By nighttime, Pluto stations direct, then the Libra Sun perfects its exact opposition to retro Chiron. Do you have a mentor? Are you a mentor to others? Heck, what’s a mentor? There’s definitely an experience and power differential but one that is balanced and mutually beneficial. This is a great time to make sure you’re doing your part to balance that equation, whatever side you happen to fall on.

If you don’t know if you have or are a mentor, ask yourself: Who do I learn from? Who learns from me? It’s good for our self esteem, either way. It grounds the foundation of our self respect and personal power.

On Wednesday, the Virgo Moon trines retro Jupiter as Virgo ruler Mercury conjoins Pallas Athena in Libra. It’s an upbeat mood, thoughtful and vivacious. It’s a GREAT day for figuring something out. Something meaningful, something tangible. It’s bouncy but mindful, internal. Mars moves to Scorpio in the night: stealthy, robust, and perfect.

Thursday morning through midday, the Virgo Moon trines retro Uranus, opposes retro Neptune, and trines direct Pluto. What is something tangible that you’ve been wishing for? What makes sense for you but you’ve not had the gumption to grab for? The moment is ripe to lean into the fog and pull out your motivation to start planning a change of heart attitude. We’re near to beginning.

Thursday afternoon, the Moon moves to Libra and a quincunx to retro Saturn. Having a tough time deciding? Feeling picky? Momentum will gather once you bite the bullet and choose. You have to start somewhere, right?

Early Friday, Mars in Scorpio perfects a trine to retro Saturn, and watery action gets traction. At the same time, Venus pulls away from its long-term sextile to Mars. Our training wheels come off, but Mars is equipped to handle it.

Friday morning’s Libra Moon cruises unhindered through the day… till it hits a quincunx with retro Jupiter in the night. Libra ruler Venus in Virgo backs up a hungry mood with thoughtful and practical motivation. If we’re going after what we want and expect for it to satisfy, it must make sense. It must feed meaning.

We also want the most we can afford. We can expect to feel generous with Venus approaching a trine to retro Jupiter.

Late Friday night, the Libra Moon heads into conjunction with Mercury and opposition to retro Chiron in the run-up to Saturday’s new moon eclipse in Libra. It’s another chance to punch up our plans and intentions with one more pause for perspective. An open mind works well with an open heart.
