Astrological Context, Week of October 2, 2023

(All times Eastern)

Remember that these aspects (aside from entry into new signs) will be in effect a few days before and a few days after the exact dates listed here. So keep this in mind when reading the daily updates this week.

On Monday, Mercury opposes Neptune, which can produce similar effects to a Mercury retrograde. Thoughts and communications may be fuzzy. In this case, outright lying may be involved. Watch for more dishonesty than usual from public figures.

Tuesday, Mercury trines Pluto, which inspires passion in communications about what we hold dear. We may not yet be terribly clear, given the fading Mercury-Neptune opposition, so be careful.

Wednesday, Mercury enters Libra. Leaving behind their favorite sign, Virgo, Libra is still fairly friendly territory for Mercury. This month should be one where we focus our communications, thoughts, and words on relationships and community of all sorts.

Sunday, Venus enters Virgo, where she is at a bit of a disadvantage. Here, she might push us into being overly picky about relationships and artistic efforts. While this can be good to a certain extent, be careful not to be so persnickety that you end up with nothing.

Also Sunday, Mars squares Pluto. This can be somewhat explosive, and can trigger obsessions and extremism. Ambition is high. Pluto is still in the degree of Capricorn he was at in July 1776, so the USA is still undergoing a Pluto return. Contacts like this from Mars (which is with the South Node right now) can play out on a national level.
