FORECAST: Weekly Astrology October 1, 2018

After a roughly six-month retrograde, Pluto will station direct to begin the week at 18 degrees Capricorn. This station which has been explained here before signifies a time when the characteristics and attributes assigned to Pluto come to be more dominant. When any planet “stations” it indicates that the planet is shifting directions from our perspective on the planet earth. Since Pluto is the farthest-most planet in our zodiacal realm its motion is quite slow. Therefore, the period during which the planet appears to be stationary is longer than other planets in our system. While a planet enters into a stationary pattern, the qualities that we might expect to see are those of its primary attributes, except that those characteristics linger for a longer period of time. Therefore, it is important to understand those and be mindful of what we might experience during that time. It will take until November 1 for Pluto to move forward one degree. Pluto is the planet of transition. Tearing down that which no longer serves us, and rebuilding a new structure is the primary role of Pluto. The understand where that restructuring will take place in your own personal world depends upon the coordinates of your personal astrology profile. To determine that you need to know the exact time of birth which sets in place the orientation of your horoscope. The best way to determine that is to contact me with your birth information so that an accurate chart can be constructed that indicates where this transition will occur.

Elsewhere the most dominant alignment comes from Venus and Neptune. These two planets, both in water signs, Venus (Scorpio) and Neptune (Pisces) provide a dreamy and pleasant backdrop for all. Venus delivers the warmth, the softness, the harmony. Whereas, Neptune brings the illusive, the delusive, and the dreamlike state that permeates the planet. When we put this combination together in a soft alignment we see a escapist theme that pervades. While there is no guarantee of such a harmonious interlude, still, the likelihood is evident. With that in mind, we could easily find ways for that to manifest. In this capacity this pleasant alignment is excellent for creative projects and personal expression through imagination and fantasy. Many people, depending on their personal charts, may be in line to enter into this theme to great effect whereas others might fall to the lesser characteristics. It is wise to acknowledge this theme and accept it for the short duration of the time. A heightened sense of escapism might be a necessary antidote to the endless news cycle under which we exist.
