Here’s the intro to get you started:
The big news for the year 2011 has been the challenging square aspect between Uranus (planet of revolutionary new ideas and radical action) and Pluto (destruction and transformation). We have seen the effects of this dramatic planetary cycle play out across the globe, from the Arab Spring which led to the downfall of Hosni Mubarek in Egypt, to the independence movements in many nations around the world. This aspect peaked in July and Uranus and Pluto continue to move slowly but surely away from each other. As October begins, the two planets are two degrees from the exact squre formation, and by the end of the month they will be far enough apart that the influence of the cycle is waning.
This gives us a planetary rest period with virtually no major planetary cycles to create disruption. It’s an opportunity for us to get back on track in our personal lives, and there will also be an unwinding of the stress that we’ve seen in the international arena. The month begins with four planets in Libra which helps us to regain our equilibrium (Libra is the sign of balance)
Throughout the month Jupiter, traveling retrograde, is moving into position to form a harmonious trine to Pluto. This is the second phase of a cycle that began in July and is a beautiful alignment for the expansion of our personal empowerment and confidence. Under this influence we can accomplish many things, so it’s important to be clear about what we want our lives to look like.
On October 3rd, and for a few days leading up to it, a square aspect from Mars to Jupiter can be extremely energizing and motivate us (through Mars) through optimism and an expanded sense of faith in ourselves (Jupiter) towards great achievements. There is some danger here that we may go “over the top” in our efforts to extend ourselves beyond our limitations, and if we feel restricted in our lives in any way we will be very aware of it during this time. Be careful to preserve your energy during these few days in order to get the maximum benefit.
This short period of expansion will be followed by a day or so of contraction when Mercury (the mind and information) conjoins Saturn (restriction) on October 5th. Communication with others could be difficult at this time, but we can also be more focused and disciplined that day.
