October 25: A Mental Reset

October 25: A Mental Reset

The sun is conjunct Mercury Rx at 11:23 a.m.

Sunday’s first planetary aspect is a sun-Mercury conjunction, also known as “cazimi” in mysterious Scorpio. A “cazimi,” meaning “heart of the sun,” is a purifying process for Mercury’s energies. This sun-Mercury conjunction is cleansing and helps to clarify our intentions and mentally reset. Since this potent “cazimi” happens in fixed water Scorpio, this blend of energies may hone our intuition and instincts, and we may find these capacities are more substantial and help us better navigate late October’s intensity.


The moon enters Pisces 2:18 p.m., and moon void of course ends

In the afternoon, the moon makes its next lunar shift out of objective Aquarius and into empathic Pisces. This shift heightens our emotions and intensifies psychic currents. We may feel a tangible switch from our heads and into our intuition for the next two days. The moon void of course ends now, and after the morning Mercury/Sun conjunction, we may have renewed clarity on what we’d like to begin now.


The moon is trine Mercury Rx at 6:59 p.m.

The moon is trine the sun at 8:31 p.m.

The Pisces moon forms two powerful water tines in the evening, helping restore mental and physical energy. The first trine is with Mercury in Scorpio, bringing deep, empathic awareness into harmony with the current communication mode. This trine aspect is pe. rfect for emotional conversations, where trust before disclosure is essential. This trine may coincide with some of us having psychological counseling or a sincere discussion with a loved one, which may be repeated themes explored before Mercury went retrograde.

Not long after, the moon shifts to form a water trine with the sun in Scorpio. This moon/sun trine marks the beginning of the waxing gibbous phase, a time when lunar energies are ramping up with increasing intensity toward the full moon in one week. Since this trine happens in the water element, an emphasis on intuition and “feeling our way forward” may come into focus today and remain central in our awareness until early Wednesday.
