The Sun sizzles through your sector of children and creativity this month. Activities, issues, and opportunities involving children, your own or others, or other creative endeavors, take center-stage this month. This is an amazing time to take an art class or cozy up with awesome art tools and go crazy. Hidden interests or talents may be revealed and these are more likely to be discovered if you try different things.
For parents or parents-to-be, learning more about parenting from experts is a wonderful area of focus always but especially this month. Unresolved issues involving children or having children are likely to come up this month. Definitely take seriously anything coming up in these areas as there is likely much to uncover now you can receive great help to find answers and solutions.
A child close to you may cross a major milestone at this time. This could also be a time of positive breakthroughs with children, wonderful flow and time spent, and amazing memories made.
Looking at life through the eyes of a child can help to bring fun into dreary routine. Something fun to try this month is to set up some child-led activities. Asking kids for ideas of fun things or thinking about what you did as a kid that you enjoyed can help you capture the magic of this placement of the Sun.
Hobbies, pleasure, and fun for the sake of itself are all in the sector being highlighted for you now. Fun and activities from previous times may roll back through into your experience.
This sector also specifically enhances the arenas of acting, modeling, fashion, dancing, singing (and any other performance arts), and athleticism.
This month could have creativity in the forefront. This is a wonderful time to tweak, edit, re-do, or further develop anything already in process. For your big launches, the time towards the end of October and early November could hold great promise.
Regarding romance, so there is an increased potential for some love sizzle 🙂 Purposely planning fun with your honey is a great way to use this energy. This could be an intense time for dating. People from the past may play an extra important role now. The energy also burns bright for new love potentials.
October 2021 continues our trek into the inward and backward focus of Mercury retrograde, whose pre-transit shadow period began around September 7. Mercury goes direct around October 18 and the post-transit shadow period clears around November 3. The time from around September 7 through early November brings focus to re-doing, re-vising, re-visiting, and anything that involves energies from the past. It is a fantastic time to wrap up unfinished projects to make room for the next open stars phase which begins in early November. You may notice the energy start clearing for the open phase for forward movement and clarity as we move through the second half of October.
Strong Libra influences bring the topic of partnerships and giving and receiving help, into the forefront. Mercury retrograde in Libra will bring up questions about relationships and/or things from the past coming up to be dealt with or enjoy.
Strong Scorpio energies add deeper dimensions to the relationship stories evolving now and also bring focus to shared finances, loans, debt, taxes, government or other support. The water sign brings high emotion and potentials for major psychological discoveries and healing.
Mercury retrograde dominating the month increases the likelihood of changes to plans, things that seemed set being called into question, miscommunications and electrical items breaking down but also opens great possibilities cleaning up unfinished business, fun blasts from the past, enhanced creativity, and surprise opportunities for fun. Try to leave some time unscheduled to make room for last-minute magic.
See my blog on the topic, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades. Also check out my video on Mercury Retrograde. Additionally, I devote lots of energy to helping you understand and utilized retrograde and direct planetary movement in my book, Planetology.
Jupiter turns direct this month and along with it, new information about and zest for international travel or other connections, languages, teaching, learning, writing, publishing and speaking may start to gain momentum. Jupiter moving direct can also facilitate finding solutions and can bring renewed hope and optimism.
Saturn also turns direct this month. Lots of factors, including this one this month, open up a time for great progress and advancement.
Eclipse rumblings begin in October as the eclipse ‘season’ of major change starts 4-6 weeks before the actual eclipses. The ending of the Sagittarius/Gemini eclipse cycle that started around March 2020 and runs through early January 2021 will bring a great wrap-up of the energies that started at that time. The new cycle of Taurus/Scorpio eclipses will start to show their trends and this runs from now through the end of 2023.
