October 4: Pluto Goes Direct

October 4: Pluto Goes Direct

The moon is conjunct Uranus Rx at 3:59 a.m.

Early Sunday, the waxing Taurus moon joins innovative Uranus in a powerful conjunction. This aspect may have a destabilizing effect on the morning’s mood, bringing emotional upsets or surprises to the fore. We may suddenly feel a new sensation or uncover a new level of personal awareness we didn’t realize before. The conjunction may activate a creative impulse, or a rebellious urge to break out of our usual routine.


Pluto goes direct at 6:32 a.m.

Just before sunrise, Pluto, the planet of hidden power and transformation, goes direct on its slow course around the sun until January 1, 2021. During this time, we may see the forces of destruction and collapse continue in many aspects of the world around us. Bearing witness to these immense changes will have profound psychological impacts on us all. These changes, however, are, to some extent, necessary, as we are witnessing a Plutonian process of breaking down old, decayed structures so that these can compost the soil of renewal.


The moon is trine Jupiter at 9:07 p.m.

 The moon is sextile Neptune Rx at 10:37 p.m.

By evening, the abundant Taurus moon forms an earth trine with expansive Jupiter in practical Capricorn. This steadying aspect may help ground our emotions in cautious optimism, and now that Jupiter is moving direct, we may perceive new growth and opportunities. We may feel a little more hopeful tonight as we discover new ways to work with our current resources. This earth trine helps foster strong, enduring connections with loved ones and may strengthen a relationship with a teacher or mentor.

Later on, the exalted Taurus moon moves along to activate a collaborative sextile aspect with Neptune in compassionate Pisces, adding a dreamy and creative quality to the night. The steady and fruitful Taurus moon may help to blend earthly senses with the imaginal realm that Neptune in Pisces represents, allowing us to join tactile and transcendent realities. This mixture of tangible and invisible is an exciting and inspiring mix that is good for meditation or creative pursuits.
