Friday 6th October – Wednesday 11th October:

An October Storm Warning

While it seems as if the world is always full of mayhem, there are times when astrology’s planet patterns flag up periods of extra tension. This is one of those times – out in the world, and often in our own lives and psyches too.

Between 6th – 10th October the Sun in strategic Libra squares up to powerful Pluto in Capricorn, planet of all that’s bubbling and boiling beneath the surface. Now, this happens twice a year, every year. But it does ratchet up the tension, stir up power plays and ploys, and above all it’s not a great time to insist that might makes right. Sooner or later someone will have to find a diplomatic way out, back down, or wriggle out of a locked room somehow.

And this time there’s more. During this phase, warrior Mars in Virgo is travelling towards squaring up to Saturn in Sagittarius. Their exact face-off is on 11th October at 23 degrees of those signs – but the days beforehand are often very tense.

Mars is about action and desire, while Saturn is about solidity, tradition, and restrictions. They don’t have much common ground, and when they irritate each other like this it tends to foster an accident-prone, angry, all-round difficult and aggressive atmosphere. In Virgo and Sagittarius it’s got a distinctly scorched earth feel about it, and suggests that travel – from small, everyday journeys to longer trips – will require special focus and care.

Basic astrological advice at this time is to drive very carefully, avoid sharp objects, and try to keep your temper or avoid anyone who’s spoiling for a fight. These spiky aspects may not connect with your own natal horoscope, but they’ll be rubbing someone near you up the wrong way – so just keep a low profile and take it easy.
