October 2004 Astro Forecast
- October 2004 Forecast
The month of October starts with very rare major planetary pattern
known as a grand quintile aspect in the sky. This fifth harmonic
aspect is seen in astrology as a spiritual alignment made up of a
series of quintile and bi-quintile aspects that form a pentacle.
This magical pattern will repeat on October 28 on the day of the
lunar eclipse across the Taurus/Scorpio access. Part of this
alignment is a Golden yod aspect between Uranus, Saturn and
Jupiter. The astrological community is a buzz with what this
means. For most I believe it is a rare opportunity to tap into the
spiritual realms, awaken psychic energy, and clear karma. Saturn
and Jupiter are involved allowing a chance for spiritual awakening
and openness. The veils between worlds and realities are
traditionally thin this time of year but they are opening eve more
than usual during this time. You may catch glimpses of things you
never noticed before. This is an opening to the hidden mysteries
of life just remember that the point is to be aware and awakened and
as this process unfolds the world may actually seem a little more
mysterious then before.
I find it interesting that this Harmonic concordance (as it is
called by one astrologer) is happening as a movie about science and
metaphysics is gaining momentum around the country. What The Bleep
Do we Know, if you haven't seen it, is very much about the mysteries
of the Universe and the blurred lines between quantum physics and
mysticism. If we can really get a grasp on the idea that are
thoughts are really in essence who we are, we can change the world.
This rare aspect allows for that kind of understanding on a deep
level. Look for the answers in your own spiritual path and pay
close attention to what it is saying at this time.
Along with all the spiritual harmonics this month, we start the
month with Jupiter just having moved into Libra where it will remain
for the next year. As Jupiter moved into Libra it formed a strong
stellium conjunction with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars. Libra is
about relationships romantic, friendship, and business though
usually Libra is most interested in the romantic side of
relationship. With Jupiter's expansive energy in Libra,
relationships will be on the mind of many. All the added energy of
the stellium this month will put some in an almost compulsive mood
about their relationships. It becomes important to look at the
bigger picture where our relationships are concerned, both romantic
and business. Jupiter is an expansive energy and we may even expand
our definitions of what relationships mean to us and how they fit in
The energy in Libra also brings the ideas of law and justice to the
forefront, creating an interesting climate as we go into the US
Presidential election. The symbol of Libra is the scales of
justice. An awareness of injustice can open up at this time.
People begin to see challenges with the laws and how they are
upheld. This could easily affect us globally and nationally as more
people become aware of our leaders making decisions they claim to be
justified but upon close scrutiny are not. This call for justice,
balance, and harmony may not sit well with the powers that be and
the fall out may wake people up collectively.
The month comes to a close with another grand-quintile aspect and a
lunar eclipse. The eclipse is across the Taurus/Scorpio axis
bringing issues of transformation, regeneration, and physical
renewal. Pay close attention to the energy of the eclipse cycle
which is beginnings and endings. The full moon in Taurus being
eclipsed can cause us to collapse into the physical and negate other
aspects of who we are. The opposition to the sun in Scorpio brings
and intensity that can help us to move the Taurean energy in a
positive direction. This will be especially important for anyone
with planets directly affected by the eclipse.
Always the sky is changing and the energies of the planets moving.
Open your mind and your heart to the extraordinary possibilities
life offers us this month. Issues of love, justice,
transformations, regeneration, and spirit abound this month. Open
to the fifth harmonics where all things are possible and see where
life may lead you.
