We begin October with three planets, Jupiter, Mars, and Venus, transiting the sign of Leo, giving much emphasis on this sign the entire month. Jupiter has been in Leo since 7-13-15, and Mars since 9-15-15, but now Venus travels again through the sign of Leo from 9-30-15 until 11-2-15. Venus was previously in retrograde motion in Leo beginning last July 25, and later moved back into the sign of Cancer, and it now travels direct again through Leo the entire month of October. All three of these planets (Jupiter, Mars, and Venus) in Leo will be aspected by Saturn in Scorpio, so this can indicate that the naturally expansive and dramatic nature of Leo will be tempered by the practicality and honesty of Saturn.

Venus in Leo brings generosity, loyalty, kindness, and creativity, but excessive pride and the need to be acknowledged and validated in love and relationship may also manifest at this time. Our egos can be very tied to our expression of love, so watch for issues surfacing around control and possessiveness. Mars in Leo is quite strong, giving self-confidence, assertiveness, and increased passion. We take more direct action and want quick responses, which can give rise to competitiveness and impatience.

Venus and Mars will travel closely together in Leo, especially during the last half of October, when this conjunction will amplify the passionate, intense, and creative energies of this combination. In addition, these two planets can bring arguments or frustrations to the surface. Do become more aware of the roots of your strong desires, and how it affects your perceptions of life and love. The Saturn aspect on Venus and Mars can temper some of the passion, but also help us to move more consciously in love, seeing the deeper, self-responsibility we have in all our interactions with others. Saturn will exactly aspect Venus at 7 degrees Leo on October 9 and 10, so this is a strong time to work with compassion for self, while keeping the heart open.

Mercury, planet of communications and the intellect, goes direct October 9, around 8 AM (MST) in Virgo, its sign of exaltation. Mercury exactly conjuncts Rahu (north node of the Moon) at 6 degrees at the time it goes direct. Exalted Mercury with Rahu can promote great mental capabilities and communication skills, and interest in unusual and alternative subjects. But this combination can also bring cloudy thinking and some mental anxiety. Use your mind in positive ways, meditate, and be centered. Mercury will be at 15 degrees Virgo (its exact degree of exaltation) on October 19 and 20, and remains in Virgo until October 29, 2015.

Jupiter, the great benefic, will also be traveling with Mars this month which increases our energy levels, vitality, enthusiasm, and confidence. Jupiter will conjunct Mars exactly at 19 and 20 degrees of Leo, from October 15-18, 2015. This combination also brings increased desires, competitiveness, and an expanded, ambitious nature.

Jupiter also travels with Venus again in Leo, and these two planets conjunct exactly at 21 degrees Leo on October 25, 2015. This same conjunction occurred last August 3-5, and so we experience these two teacher planets together again creating a dwi-guru yoga (Jupiter is the teacher of the gods, Venus is the teacher of the demons). This is a wonderful time to expand our knowledge and promote spiritual awareness. We also may experience a strong need to socialize and enjoy the company of others. Jupiter and Venus can increase romantic opportunities, as well as promote artistic, creative, and healing activities. But watch for over-doing things or being too self-indulgent. Practice generosity and kindness.

Note: Vedic astrology, the astrology from India, uses the sidereal zodiac, the zodiac of the fixed stars, which is based on a more accurate astronomical view of the planets in the sky.
