A Super New Moon and a Super Mars: Astrology Forecast 11th – 18th October

October 12th, 2020

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Expect clashes, crashes and crossed wires. The Mars/Pluto square is overlaying a sense of heaviness and this week the Sun squares Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. On Tuesday 13th, Mars is at his closest to Earth until 2035 acting out just as Mercury stations to turn retrograde in Pluto’s sign of Scorpio until November 3rd opposing unpredictable Uranus and trining Neptune .Nothing will be what it seems. If you think Tower of Babel or Lost in Translation, you get the gist…

The Super Stealth New Moon on Friday October 16th at 23° Libra in the Via Combusta aka the Fiery Way is going to be a doozy! The seismic window is wide open between 13-18th, bringing geo-physical disturbance, high tides, super storms or earth movements. The Super Moon is conjunct Haumea – the bringer of epochal events – in a cardinal T-square to Mars/Eris/Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter and Mars /Eris.

Falling as it does not only in a Mercury Max, but within just two days of Mercury’s retrograde station this is set to be one of the most turbulent geophysical disturbance points in 2020. Make your wellbeing a priority, get more rest, more hydration, more grounding outside.

Realise that you cannot do the old things anymore, that the energy of everything really affects you in a different way. It’s not an emotional experience, it’s a “that resonates/that doesn’t”.

Notice what and who you’ve walked away from, what you’ve stopped doing, thinking, craving or needing whether it’s trying to connect with people who don’t get you, constantly trying to fit in or giving your services away.

The more you withdraw your energy from anything external that leads to soul de-fragmentation, the more energy you have available to self-sustain and the more energised, present and alive you become. Power up to invest all your energy into where and how you want to live – not repairing what’s broken.

The Chandra Symbol the Libra New Moon 23 Libra:

A tremendous boulder hovering over the ocean.

“Collective cycles are everything here. You are caught between worlds, part of many, belonging to none. Changes are imminent. The air is buzzing with future currents. No rest, no quiet, no continuity. You verge on astounding things; held poised at the edge. You feel propelled by destiny to obsess upon where we all are now, where we came from, and especially, where we are going. Gathering impressions toward the harvest, staying tuned for further developments. And knowing it’s going to come any moment now, you can feel it rising up.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale

Aries Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

You may have lower energy levels than usual as Mars is retrograde in Aries and also at his closest to Earth. This will feel quite draining and possibly overwhelming. At the same time on the 13th Mercury slows to turn backwards in Scorpio making you more introspective than usual. Expect crossed-wires over financial transactions-double check your bank account and block any leaks in spending. With Mercury aligned with slippery Neptune, watch for scams or online fraud. Everyone will be more thin skinned than usual at Friday’s Super Moon or liable to fly off the handle, so step carefully where family relationships are concerned.

Make your wellbeing your main priority and get as much downtime as you can.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

With planet of libido-life force-Mars retrograde in your 12th House, your energy levels are running low and you need to re-charge your batteries. Since it’s also a week of Super Moon stress, don’t try to keep on keeping on but slow down and pace yourself. Mercury turns retrograde in your opposite sign of Scorpio on Tuesday 13th putting close relationships of all kinds front and centre. It’s an especially good time to reconnect with people you’ve lost touch with and catch up with their lives. Since Scorpio is in Pluto’s sign with X ray vision, something you notice may make you have second thoughts about a personal or business partner’s reliability. Friday’s Super New Moon turns your thoughts to breaking a bad habit for good.

Treat yourself gently.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

This is a week to take extra good care of yourself and cut yourself some slack. On Tuesday 13th, Mars is at his closest to earth acting like Super Mars on steroids just as your personal planet Mercury turns retrograde in Pluto’s sign of Scorpio. It could prove to be a day of glitches, accidents and clashes, so stay out of other people’ s dramas. Until November 3rd, Mercury will backtrack through your House of health and wellbeing nudging you to upgrade your routines and self-care. Don’t jump into a punishing schedule of exercise but make an achievable plan and take the first steps. On Friday’s Super New Moon, one particular hobby, pastime or former passion might come to a natural end. If so, let it go to make space for something more interesting.

Taking stock.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

A week with both Mars at max and a Super New Moon is rare but here it is! Not only that but Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday 13th just as Mars is at his closest to earth until 2035.If you anticipate clashes, glitches, reversals and cross-currents, you can lie low or sidestep the dramas around you. Mercury in Pluto’s sign of Scorpio is perfect for re-connecting with old friends or picking up a hobby or forgotten passion from the past and revisiting happier times. Channel Friday’s Super New Moon at the roots of your chart by having a major clear out or de-clutter. Don’t allow stuff with old associations to ruin your present.

Therapy for the soul.

Leo Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

There’s no sugar coating the astrology this week but forewarned is forearmed. With Mars at max halfway through his retrograde at his closest to earth until 2035 plus a Super New Moon along with Mercury turning retrograde, absolutely nothing will be straightforward. Tuesday 13th and Friday 16th are days to tread extra carefully. Meanwhile, avoid other people’s dramas by  concentrating on reorganising where you live. Mercury in your 4th House of Home suggest things are changing so take the opportunity to re-think ways to make your space work better for you. At Friday’s Super New Moon, remember to back up your files and systems as the Messenger is fritzed by Uranus’ own brand of electricity and double check social media posts, texts or emails before pressing send.

Making the most of your space.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

This is a week of potential clashes, crossed wires and over reaction so find a quiet corner and stay right away from all the drama and soap operas. If you think Tower of Babel or Lost in Translation, you get the gist. Everything is being intensified by Mars at his nearest to Earth until 2035, a Super New Moon and Mercury turning retrograde all in the space of a few days. For you as Virgo, with Mercury in your 3rd House of communication, this could be classic Mercury retrograde, so keep things simple, edit and save your work, go back over important files and don’t start anything new. Friday’s Super New Moon in your 2nd House is a good time to do a financial audit, checking and rechecking the bottom line and plugging any leaks.

Strengthening your personal security.

Libra Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

There’s no sugar coating this month’s challenging astrology for you as a solar Libran. All the big hitters Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto have turned forward in your home sector as Mars retrograde affects your relationships. This week, on October 13th, Mars is at max at his closest to Earth just as Mercury turns backwards in Scorpio-your financial zone. There may be clashes, arguments or crossed wires over work and money. Take a long hard look at what you earn, what you spend it on and where you waste it, then plug the leaks. Have honest conversations with those closest to you and mend fences. On Friday’s intense Super New Moon in Libra, permanently delete your old habit of underestimating yourself.

The ball is in your own court.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

This is set to be an intense week for just about everyone but for you as a Pluto ruled sign, you’re in your element. On Tuesday October 13th, your personal ruler Mars is halfway through his long retrograde at his closest to Earth until 20235 while Mercury turns backwards in Scorpio. Your mind will be working quickly, picking up messages and information right out of the ethers. Much of it will come via your instincts and intuition, so don’t let original or off the wall ideas fly by- capture them for later. Friday’s Super New Moon is in the deepest part of your chart and a good time to leave behind duties or responsibilities that were never yours to carry in the first place. Make a clean break and don’t look back.

Insights and inspirations.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

Be aware that just about everyone this week will be feeling stressed or sensitive and tread extra carefully. Before anything else, cut yourself some slack and take the pedal off the metal. On Tuesday 13th, Mercury turns backwards in your 12th House of health and it’s time to take stock of your well being and energy levels. This year’s ongoing restrictions have probably been more draining than you realised. But don’t force yourself into a rigorous new exercise routine or beat yourself up about it, instead take some time for yourself to reflect, journal or plan. Friday’s Super New Moon in your 11th House of friends is a reminder to talk to those who have your best interests at heart, who always lift your spirits.

More being, less doing.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

A rare combination of a Super Mars and a Super New Moon this week raises the stakes for everyone. So, whatever happens or, more likely, doesn’t happen, don’t take it personally! If you know to expect glitches, crashes or crossed wires then you can find ways to work round them or wait until the dust has settled. For you as a Capricorn, the challenges are likely to be on the home front, so be your most accommodating and diplomatic, unless you really want to put a bomb under someone close! As Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio, not everything or everyone is as they seem. Take a closer look at organisations or groups you belong to-is everything above board? If you have any doubts, move on. Keep in mind that the Sun at the top of your chart until October 21st is making you extra visible, so radical transparency is essential.

Use your cloak of invisibility to discover the truth of a situation.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

As an Aquarian, dramas and soap operas are definitely not your thing, so refuse to get involved with the latest episodes this week. There will be many, as a rare combination of Mars at his closest to Earth until 20235 and a Super New Moon stir up the ethers. The potential for glitches, clashes, crashes and discord is amplified by Mercury turning retrograde on Tuesday 13th in Scorpio right at the top of your chart. If you work from home, back up everything, check out your communication systems as Uranus brand of cosmic electricity will fritz anything it touches. Watch for scams or fraud and strengthen your cyber security. Happily, Friday’s Super New Moon is in a compatible Air sign with yours so if you have a project or a course of study to start, now’s the time. It has your name on it.

Doing what is yours to do.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: October 11-18, 2020

The clashes, crashes and intensity of the coming week are not really your thing and you’re probably feeling out of your comfort zone. It’s not personal but it certainly feels like it. Mars is causing some upheaval in your income stream and one source you’ve relied on in the past to come through may be disappearing. Take back control and come up with a range of different ways to attract money. Look at your experience, your assets, your skill base and think out of the box. The world of work is shifting radically so this is the perfect time to turn your adaptability to your own advantage. With Mercury turning backwards in the detective sign of Scorpio until November 3rd, your instincts will be unbeatable. Research some of your old ideas and put a new spin on them-you’ll be surprise at how relevant they become.

Turning lemons into lemonade…..
