Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Full Moon Chart
October 20, 2021

Wednesday October 20th — An early morning full Moon for the eastern American continents, pre-dawn on the West Coast, afternoon hours in Europe and Asia with the Moon in Aries. A balance could be attained for persons with late Libra Sun, as you realize a more complete understanding of goal initiatives and results. The full Moon is at 14:58 UT (GMT). A T-square configuration initiates the full Moon with the lunar opposition aspect to Mars in Libra and square aspect to Pluto. Attempts to stabilize volatile situations through government mandates are made.  Mars trine aspect to Jupiter separates, as the effects of radical efforts are distributed through the population.  The Moon ingress to Taurus brings a focus on personal security.

Thursday October 21st — The Moon in Taurus is square aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, coinciding with a harsh response for deniers of social obligations, such as anti-vaxxers. The Moon in a quincunx aspect to Mercury in Libra later in the day disrupts thought and intent. The unexpected events could motivate unanticipated action, as the Moon conjunction aspect with Uranus follows. Mars in Libra approaches the square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, with revolutionary goals. Violent protests build up in intensity. The Moon quincunx aspect to Venus in Sagittarius follows the protests with appeals for rationality and preservation of property, as the Moon in Taurus is disposed of by Venus (Venus is the ruler of Taurus).   Mercury in Libra quincunx aspect to Uranus seeks a rational approach in appeals for security. Financial indicators fluctuate wildly, upsetting investors. Compulsive disorders also are likely to flare up.

Friday October 22nd — The Moon in Taurus is sextile aspect to Neptune in Pisces, prompting attempts to compensate for financial loss. A square aspect from the Moon to Jupiter in Aquarius follows, as a backlash or a difficulty in legislation that attempts to compensate may be rejected. The Moon is then trine aspect to Pluto, although quincunx aspect to Mars. There could be adjustments made before the passage of legislation that assists the majority.  The Sun makes the ingress to Scorpio after midnight EDT. 

Sun Ingress Scorpio
New York, EDT

Saturday October 23rd— The Ingress of the Sun into Scorpio occurs in the early morning for Europe and the Middle-Eastern nations, later in the day for the far East and Australia. The full Moon on Wednesday is a more active chart, with a stronger Mars square aspect to Pluto. Mars and Pluto are both considered to have rulership over Scorpio.  In conflict, such as the square aspect, prepares us for the Sun ingress. Soon after the ingress, the Moon in Taurus is in a quincunx aspect to the Sun. The Moon ingress to Gemini follows with a distribution of energy, as programs for financial recovery are made into law, and the Moon in a conjunction aspect with Rahu also helps to prepare for a renewal.    

UN Founding
October 24, 1945
San Francisco, CA

Sunday October 24th — The UN was founded on this day in 1945, in San Francisco, CA. The close conjunction aspect of Saturn and Mars in the foundation chart, in the sign of Cancer, indicates that action is slow, and often stymied. Pluto in the partile opposition to that conjunction aspect could galvanize that intent and hope for an effective world organization. Today, the Moon in Gemini is in a trine aspect to Mercury in Libra and in an opposition aspect to Venus in Sagittarius. We can honor the progress made toward world peace over the past 76 years.  In the Founding Chart, Pluto is sextile aspect to Jupiter and Chiron conjunction in Libra, as the hope for peace is also inherent in the founding. Today, Mercury is quincunx aspect to Uranus retro in Taurus, as inspirational speeches are made to commemorate the day. The Moon is trine aspect to Jupiter in Aquarius for a sense of unity and pride.

Monday October 25thVenus in Sagittarius and in a square aspect to Neptune retro in Pisces, reminds us of our shortcomings. There is much more work to do to help the suffering of humanity. The Moon in Gemini is trine aspect to Mars in Libra, prompting effective action toward peaceful solutions. A grand-trine configuration with Jupiter would be in effect for some, especially if natal planets are at 24-26 degrees in Aquarius.  Acceptance for your work may be at a peak.  Mars supersedes the square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn as reports of investigations are released.   

Tuesday October 26th — The Moon in Cancer is trine aspect to the Sun in Scorpio early in the day, as issues move forward in court hearings. With Mars and Mercury in Libra, balance is sought, while the Sun in Scorpio favors an in-depth investigation.  The Moon is also quincunx aspect to Saturn during US morning hours, then square aspect to Chiron retro in Aries. Initiatives may be set back as further research is needed. Venus in a square aspect to Neptune retro increases sensitivity, although court rulings maybe harsh.   The Moon’s sextile aspect to Uranus retro in Taurus could work to relieve financial distress. The Moon in a square aspect to Mercury follows late in the day. The Moon in Cancer is empowered in its own sign, and may force decisions to be set aside.

Have a great day every day.  

Reminder: While lunar aspects are in effect only for a few hours, the aspect of the outer planets can last days and weeks. I post the reading for the following day, in order to give a preview, and also because the aspects may be in effect even earlier.
