October 27: Restoring Unity
The moon is conjunct Neptune Rx at 2:40 a.m.
The moon is sextile Jupiter at 6:38 a.m.
Very early Tuesday, the waxing moon conjuncts Neptune retrograde in Pisces. This conjunction amplifies psychic frequencies and adds a dreamy quality to the morning. Since many of us may be sleeping at this time. This merging of the moon and Neptune may play out in our dreamscape as potent dream symbols, or in transcendent narratives.
The moon then shifts on its course a few hours later, to form an exact sextile with Jupiter in Capricorn. Jupiter is Pisces’ natural planetary ruler, so this sextile is incredibly promising and hopeful. This aspect may add a note of optimism to the morning and encourage our emotional expressions to break out of the box.
The moon is sextile Pluto at 10:58 a.m.
Later in the morning, the moon in soulful Pisces forms another sextile, this time with Pluto in patient Capricorn. This sextile may open up deep psychological awareness, and we feel drawn to contemplate the mysteries of life. Since Pluto is the planet of the underworld, this deep, soulful connection may reveal hidden feelings and realities.

The moon is sextile Saturn at 5:46 p.m., and moon void of course begins
Mercury Rx enters Libra at 6:33 p.m.
Venus enters Libra at 6:41 p.m.
We have many pivotal planetary aspects in the early evening, beginning with the moon’s third sextile of the day with stern Saturn. This sextile may help to stabilize and ground our somewhat dreamy emotions and allow us to focus on the here and now. Since the sextile is a beneficial aspect, it can sort out our priorities and help us focus on our commitments.
Then a genuinely remarkable dual planetary shift happens, as Mercury retrograde returns to Libra, and Venus leaves Virgo to enter Libra, virtually at the same time. Venus is now powerfully placed in her home sign in peaceable Libra, so will powerfully preside over our most significant diplomatic efforts now. Mercury revisits Libra to facilitate balanced communication, personally and collectively, while Venus comes to restore love, unity, and connection.
Mercury and Venus are up against some of the most formidable planetary forces now and are both positioned to form oppositions with Mars, and squares with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. These squares and oppositions represent a crossroads in societal cohesion and balance, so the stakes feel as though they have never been higher. Venus has maximum power for good in Libra, so it’s essential to focus on and tune into her healing energies amid this challenging season.
