At the beginning of October, Venus (planet of love and relationships) continues its pleasant transit through Libra, its own sign, until October 12, 2016. Allow the harmonizing and empathic higher energies of Libra to predominate. We all want balance and harmony in our unstable world and happiness for our loved ones, so let any suffering you are feeling, whether it’s sadness, anger, or confusion, be a catalyst for opening your heart further and bringing more compassion into your personal life and the world.

From October 13 to November 6, 2016, Venus moves into the fixed water sign of Scorpio where it joins Saturn. You’ll be further tested, as Venus in Scorpio can bring up issues of attachment or jealousy in love that need healing. Let go of grasping in your relationships, and allow a more universal and unconditional love to surface.

Saturn with Venus can trigger old feelings of restriction or lack of nurturance in love and relationships. Meet these feeling of vulnerability with loving actions. Try to be more kind and accepting of yourself and others with no expectations. Openness and honesty creates healing and expansion. Cultivating forgiveness is a sweet, effective remedy too. Allow Saturn, the planet of wisdom and truth, to help you be a more mature and responsible expression of Universal Love.

Mercury transits its exalted sign of Virgo from October 3 to October 20, 2016 where it joins Jupiter, the great benefic planet. These two planets will exactly conjunct on October 10, at 12 degrees Virgo. If you are feeling more chaos in your life, let this connection of Mercury and Jupiter help you take a more expansive view that gives you greater insight and understanding. Educational pursuits are emphasized as well, and may surface as a desire to travel to stimulating locations. Discrimination (learning to make the best choices for all concerned) is a theme, as well as creating more order and clarity in our lives.

Watch out for too much mental activity with Mercury in Virgo, and beware of intellectual egotism and the tendency to think you are the only one with the answers. Your words are very powerful and have great impact, so you may wish to practice meditation, read inspirational literature, and take time for deep reflection. These activities will give your communication with others more humility and depth.

For most of October, Kala Sarpa Yoga occurs — from October 1 to October 11, 2016, and again from October 26 to November 7, 2016. This combination happens when all the planets are sandwiched in between the nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu. Called the “snake of time” this planetary combination can bring challenges and restrictions in manifesting our desires, which we may feel more intensely. You can move through this period positively by realizing that it’s a great opportunity to move forward in your spiritual development. Leave behind the lower vibrational energies of the past like anger, guilt, and shame, and acknowledge the importance these lessons hold in your personal evolution.

Be courageous and willing to break the habitual patterns that have locked you in. Heal yourself by going directly to the true source of the problem. Through it all, embrace loving qualities like compassion, gratitude, and especially forgiveness. Strive to be less reactive, to find things to do that inspire you, and to put yourself in environments that bring you peace. A requirement with this planetary combination is to take the high road, and act with the highest ethical and moral standards. With true intention and loving actions, you can experience some significant breakthroughs!

The Sun transits Libra, its sign of debility from October 16 to November 15, 2016 highlighting the need to effectively compromise with others without losing your sense of self. You can’t please everyone all the time, but you can do your best to respect others’ needs and points of view in a humble way.

Mercury joins the Sun in Libra from October 21 until November 8, 2016, and during part of this time (from October 21 to November 2), Mercury will be combust the Sun (using a 4 degree orb). This means the integrity of Mercury is somewhat compromised, so try to be clear and precise in your communications or misunderstandings may result. Take care in all business dealings, and be diligent about getting the details right. Find the right time to communicate. When you feel grounded and have mental clarity, you can share. You don’t have to rush. Meditation and mindfulness will help give you patience and good timing on this.

Overall, the month of October is a time of needing to be loving, compassionate and patient with yourself and others and extra mindful and humble in your communications. If you can keep in mind that we are all in the same energy field together, and remember that we are all facing the same challenges, you will be able to bring a positive intention that can aid our collective evolution at this time.
