Under Intense Pressure: Astrology Forecast October 6th – 13th, 2019

October 6th, 2019

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Keep in mind that October is a month when Change with a capital C will be non-negotiable. In the 3D world, Trump’s impeachment gathers momentum plus the Federal Bank has had to step in to save a dollar cash crisis; Brexit is coming to a culmination and severing links to the EU; the Hong Kong/China uprising; the Saudi oilfields blown apart; the North Korean missile launches……

In 5D, it’s the switch point from the long Jupiter/Neptune cycle of disinformation, fake news and chaotic confusion to the intensifying Saturn /Pluto cycle of harsh reality, structural collapse and polarised kneejerk reactions and power plays. Two very different energy currents are colliding, plunging us into ever deeper waters.

This week starts under pressure from the Sun/Saturn square, is electrified by Mercury and Venus at odds with unpredictable Uranus and Mars on the World Axis and Super Galactic Centre and all in the seismic window of one of the most powerful Full Moons of 2019 on Sunday 13th.

Aries Full Moon October 13 2019

There is an extremely volatile Grand Cardinal Cross from the Full Moon across the Aries/Libra axis to Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn and Node of Fate in Cancer. The Moon is conjunct female Disruptor and Awakener Eris. There is also a Grand Water trine between Mercury/Venus in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Node of fate in Cancer. This suggests that no matter how clear cut or final decisions will appear that there is still smoke and mirrors.

Be careful not to throw the baby out with the bath water by overzealous purging, decluttering and the need to do something- anything! Whatever needs to be released will happen organically-no striving or struggling to trying to control either events or people.

The Chandra Symbol for the Aries Full Moon:

An empty courtyard.

“Nothing is left. Reality is scattered. Self-obliterated. The familiar rendered irrelevant. Apocalyptic changes, personal and collective, take over. No being, only action. You become a projectile of intent, literally identifying with what you can do now. A barren wasteland of an inner world. A thrust outside. Stark and surreal. You feel compelled to dare, pushed over the edge, no going back–destiny as frenzy. And in this wild, volatile mix, creative forces are released that would never come out any other way. Yielding to the role of the purging and cleansing agent of changes, you are unable to wriggle out of anything ever again.”

Aries Weekly Forecast: October 6-13, 2019

Your sign is firmly centre stage this week. With your personal planet Mars in your opposite sign plus the annual Aries Full Moon next Sunday conjunct Eris the disruptor, relationships are up for renegotiation. It will be impossible to ignore pushback from certain people under this confrontational astrology or it may even be you doing the pushing back. With reality planets Saturn, Pluto and the Node of Fate all at odds with Aries at the Full Moon, the atmosphere is fiery, yet serious and high stakes. Your standing in the world may be undergoing some changes and there are some big decisions to make.

Sidestep as much drama as you can-it’s the last thing you need.

In any case, you’ll probably have too much work to get through to spend time engaged in dramas and soap operas. Mars now in your angle of routine, service and wellbeing for the first time in two years may push you to overdo things There’s a fine line between momentum and burn out, so keep your emotional and physical health at the top of your agenda.

The Full Moon has messages for you via your dreams, inklings and intuition. Make a note of them.

Leo Weekly Forecast: October 6-13, 2019

This week turn your thoughts from trying to push the river at work and notice what’s right under your nose.

Libra Weekly Forecast: October 6-13, 2019

This is your birthday month and something of a personal New Year. With the Sun and energy planet Mars both in your own sign, you should be feeling renewed and re-booted. That said, it’s definitely a week when just about everyone is going to feel under pressure as the potent Full Moon builds towards Sunday October 13th.This activates your partnership angle and Moon in fiery Aries takes no prisoners. If your partner demands more of your attention or issues an ultimatum, sit up and listen-it’s important.

Frame it all as an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and move forward with less baggage and more purpose.

Reminding yourself of who and what really matters.

Make a note of the days between Thursday October 11th and the Full Moon on Sunday 13th when any imbalances in your health will make themselves known.

Inspiring yourself.

Suggest some social adventures, a trip somewhere interesting, some down time to celebrate simply being alive. Sunday’s fiery Full Moon in compatible Fire sign Aries is in a perfect angle with your ruler Jupiter in your own sign-squeeze every drop of juice out of it as Jupiter will exit Sagittarius in early December after bringing you a year of opportunity, not to return until 2031.

Dance like nobody’s watching…..

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: October 6-13, 2019

Are you feeling the power yet? Since Pluto moved forward in your sign last week, you can expect to be increasingly resourceful, resilient and more laser focused than for years. With Saturn, symbol of your potential, in Capricorn too, you are becoming a force to be reckoned with. Both these change agents are in the frame at Sunday 13th’s potent Full Moon which activates all 4 angles of your solar chart. These are your foundations: career and family / public and private relationships. Endings and beginnings look likely. If you instigate them, keep in mind that Pluto always means long term repercussions. If you are faced with an ultimatum, take your time and let the dust settle. That said, when it’s time, it’s time.

A shift of gears.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: October 6-13, 2019

A wellspring of creativity.
