October Stars: Get Ready for the Solar Eclipse
This is a month of big changes as we approach the Solar eclipse in Libra on October 14th. The nodal axis is now changing from Taurus/Scorpio where it was on April 20th to Aries/Libra focusing on our relationships. Eclipses are a portal when the Sun and Moon are obscured and the degree remains sensitive for 6 months. There is great spiritual significance.

Personal Planets Changing Signs
Plus this month Mercury, Venus and Mars all change signs. This affects Mercury ruled signs of Gemini and Virgo, Venus ruled signs of Taurus and Libra and Mars ruled signs of Aries and Scorpio.
Mercury moves from Virgo into Libra
Mercury entered Virgo on 29th July then went retrograde on August 24th, hence the long transit in Virgo. It moves into Libra on October 5th until October 22nd. This emphasises the ability to be the Peacemaker in all communications. Libra is an air sign that wants balance. Its the Diplomat.
Venus in Leo is now changing sign into Virgo
Venus moved into Leo on June 6th, then went retrograde from July 23rd until September 4th . It finally enters Virgo on October 9th where it stays all month. Relationships have been under a great deal of stress. Plus when Venus is retrograde it symbolically enters the underworld. Maybe you’ve been feeling less social than usual?
Venus was square to Uranus at this Full Moon on September 29th. This is highly unpredictable and a trigger point for break-ups. Uranus demands change. This aspect moves once Venus enters Virgo. Venus in Virgo is good for sorting out priorities, for purification of your diet, your home. Its the ideal time for Feng Shui, to take a fresh look at your surroundings. Where do you spend time each day? What habits do you have that don’t support your well being?
I have decide to turn off my computer every night and spend some time reading a book that helps me relax before going to bed. Sounds obvious but its advice I have ignored until now!
Notice that Mercury and Venus are in each others signs which supports the energy of both Virgo and Libra.
Mars enters Scorpio on October 12th
Mars has been in Libra from August 28th where it is weak. Mars likes action, Libra wants peace at any price. Now for the first time in two years Mars transits Scorpio until November 24th. Scorpio is the only sign that has three symbols, the Scorpion, the Eagle and the Phoenix/Dove. To raise our vibration is essential with all that is going on in the world. The Eagle signifies the Visionary that flies the highest in the sky. Take time to focus on what raises your spirits.
This month sees 5 planets retrograde, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus Neptune and Pluto. When planets are retrograde they are closer to the earth so they can be more important. Every year the planets from Jupiter to Pluto go retrograde for many months so its not unusual. Mercury does it 3 times a year. Mars every 2 years approx, and Venus approx. every 18 months.
Pluto goes direct on October 11th where it moves forward in Capricorn once more. It will reenter Aquarius next year on January 22nd, albeit only until September 2nd. Then it moves back into Capricorn to finish the job of clearing up institutions and governments. Its not until 2025 when it finally moves into Aquarius.
FIRE SIGNS Chiron and Healing Your Core Sacrifice Story
Chiron in Aries- the archetype of the Wounded Healer – was activated at the Full Moon in Aries and it still has an opposition from Mars in Libra. This will also be activated at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on October 14th when it is opposite the Sun and Moon and Mercury. Look out for old wounds surfacing, especially in your relationships.
Old wounds and heartbreaks need healing, especially those wounds we encountered in our family of birth. In my coaching I explore these issues with clients as they can often be seen in the birth chart in relationship to the Moon and the karmic axis.
If your answer is yes, then a coaching session- or a series- with me using process cards can help. I work with the Psychology of Vision Triangle model by Chuck and Lency Spezzano.
This is a road map of key issues you’ll be facing at any one time. The coaching is to support you transform soul patterns to embrace your soul level gifts. The unconscious mind is the soul mind, the original mind, the deep mind. This is the mythical mind used in archetypes, symbols and magic. Typically we cover this over age 7 through fear as we have no emotional defense. Astrologically this is the age when have the first Saturn square.
I offer spiritual coaching to my clients and have two places available in October. My latest testimonial from a long standing client who has just landed her dream job.
“Working with Pam is life-affirming. She has the amazing talent of getting to the heart of any troubling matter. Her kindness and compassion are deeply infused in her unique offering and in subtle and profound ways the breakthroughs occur. I highly recommend attending one of unique workshops or booking a 1:1 coaching session. You will never look back but will move forward with the knowledge that the ancient art of astrology both Western and Vedic really does transform your life under her guidance.” Julia
EARTH SIGNS Jupiter moved into Taurus on May 16th for an entire year
Jupiter the greater benefic goes retrograde so look where that is in your birth chart. It stations at 15 degrees Taurus. It moved into Taurus for an entire year on May 16th until May 26th 2024. This is wonderful news for Taurus and Scorpio. Jupiter is the planet of faith, faith in life, that life is worth living. It takes 12 years to go around the zodiac, so look back 12 years to understand its influence in your chart. It is the biggest planet in our solar system and Jupiter is Zeus, King of the Gods. It brings good luck, expansiveness and the feel good factor. It truly is the planet of abundance, especially now its in the earth sign of Taurus.
Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus, and it promotes all activities connected to the earth such as gardening, music, farming, art, material wealth and all good things on the physical plane. It promotes cleaning and using Marie Kondo’s methods of letting go of anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Taurus is also compatible with the emotional water signs of Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn also benefit from Jupiter’s gaze.
EARTH SIGNS Uranus is now retrograde in Taurus activating 23 degrees Taurus to 19 degrees Taurus. Change is what Uranus needs. Work with it. Make some practical changes in your life and use the Mercury retrograde period in fellow earth sign Virgo to throw out anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Clear those cupboards!
WATER SIGNS Neptune The Dreamer is now retrograde. In Pisces it favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate. We now have an opportunity to bring our dreams into manifestation. Trust your intuition. This is especially significant at this Full Moon.
One key word for Neptune is compassion. However it can also indicate illusion, deceit, scandal, loss, drowning, a feeling of being overwhelmed and lost. If you’ve been feeling exhausted, depressed, over-burdened and with little energy then I recommend taking time out and being kind to yourself. Take comfort and know that “this too will pass”.
Bach Flower remedies such as Elm, Sweet Chestnut and Oak may be helpful. Also for shock Rock Rose or Rescue Remedy.
EARTH SIGNS Pluto is now retrograde and moved back into Capricorn on June 11th. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events. However it becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38. It moved into Aquarius briefly on March 23rd until June 11th 2023. However it only transits 0 degrees 22 mins Aquarius so not a major transit.
NOW ON SALE! MasterClass Recording Unlocking the Meaning of Chiron: Healing Your Core Sacrifice Story-Reclaiming Your Power
Native American prophecy states that when the planet of healing is discovered in the sky, the ancient sacred warrior teachings will return to the Earth. Discovered in 1977 that planet is Chiron- wounded healer, shaman and the rainbow bridge between Heaven and Earth.
Understanding Chiron is really important. Our wounds are the way the ego keeps us small, so we hide from our purpose.
In our charts its where we feel wounded and weak. However our wound is the very thing we are called to heal so we can heal others.
Chiron is the Archetype of the Wounded Healer, so healing our wounds is now a priority. It’s not something that can be put off any longer.
Only by changing our vibration can we move into a higher energy and enjoy being in the flow of our lives rather than be dragged along.
How old were you when you when you were first wounded?
This occurs when Chiron makes a square to its natal position in your birth chart.
Depending on what sign you have Chiron in will indicate how old you were when you experienced this first square to your natal Chiron.
In my research for this MasterClass I discovered that my first square to my natal Chiron occurred when I was 12 years old. At first I couldn’t remember what happened back then. Its a long time ago! I lost my first love plus my beloved pussycat died. I was heartbroken.
