Astrology for October 2021 – with Pamela Cucinell

Sep 30, 2021 05:48PM ● By Pamela Cucinell

Think Twice 

Edit and double-check with Mercury retrograde for the first couple of weeks. Potential for an upset on October 1 magnifies with high energy. Prioritize on October 2 or too many options will scatter your resources. Good communication on October 3 supports relationships and financial arrangements. Any “uphill” feeling lifts by the evening of October 4, when flow increases. Clear commitment on October 5 demands accountability; claim personal agency. 

Fresh Perspective

The October 6 Libra new moon highlights transformation through difficult dialogue. On October 7, it’s time to reconsider certain partnerships. Think through the impulse for fast action October 8. High ideals match right relationships on October 9. Refresh in nature October 10. True healing gets traction when serious goals gain momentum October 11; Indigenous People’s Day is part of the dialogue. 

Ready, Set, Go!

Organize and regroup October 13 to prepare for a burst of activity. Light-speed connections and decisions benefit from scrutiny—Mercury is still retrograde October 14. Follow through with projects already in motion on October 15. Creativity hungers for appropriate outlets on October 16. Meditation and reflection provide an exponential return on October 17; sink into an attitude of gratitude. All engines fire when Mercury and Jupiter go direct on October 18; make camp with the optimistic doers.

Individual Expression 

Pulls from opposite directions October 19 prevent accomplishment—stick to priorities. Both parties must be heard to prevent power struggles at the Aries full moon October 20. Exercise out residual anger and frustration on October 21. Tremendous shifts occur October 22 through good choices. Ideas percolate October 23; embrace help offered. There’s a lack of clarity October 24; check discussions or appointments in the late evening or the next day. 

The Veil Lifts

After a burst of energy on October 25, slow down and take your time. You can’t push a wave; you have to go with it October 26. Tempers are short October 27; take time for meals. The urge to play on October 28 is at odds with responsibilities. Do what is required on October 29 to enable some leisure. Childlike desire teases on October 30. Careful awareness allows for Samhain/Halloween and inspired conversations; ancestors whisper solace in the dry rustle of the leaves.
