Major Planetary Influences in September and October 2017

 

 

– by Demian Allan 

Over the next two months the big astrological news is that, for the first time in twelve years, the planet Jupiter will enter the zodiac sign of Scorpio on 10 October at 14.20 GMT time. The expansive qualities of Jupiter bring the energy of boundless optimism in terms of our inner workings and deeper psychological aspects in our personal development. This comes off the back of the major eclipses of August leading to a revaluation of what we all want in our lives. The spiritual symbolism for Jupiter in Scorpio is an Eagle that flies beyond its boundaries. In October Jupiter and Uranus oppose each other in the sky leading to revolutionary activity and impulsive decisions being made without consideration for the consequences, especially early in the month. We all need to start being much more responsible for our past actions and our future yearnings; over the next twelve months this will become like a totem that is displayed in the collective.

 

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

September:

Sometimes in life we have to take a step back and be objective, not an easy thing to do if you’re born under the zodiac sign of Aries. However this month you will need to be detached from your emotions otherwise you will find yourself getting dragged into other people’s issues; not a pleasant place to be for the rams of this world.

October:

Trying to be dynamic in an environment that does not support this makes life seem much more difficult than it should be. October can allow you to achieve a lot in a short space of time, but you need to be patient and know when to act and when to stand back and let others make mistakes. Look out for the Full Moon in your own sign on the 5th – a powerful symbol of the need for you to let go of past issues related to how you feel about yourself.

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

September:

This month is a period of revival, meaning you will start to be much more aware of your inner needs and therefore you can begin to feel good about yourself. Your ruler Venus travels through the 4th house, so home and family matters are given a boost until the 20th when Venus moves into Virgo and activates your creative expression; I said you would feel good about yourself.

October:

The month of October could feel a bit disconnected for the majority of Taureans, mainly because it forms a natural quincunx aspect with the Sun in Libra. However the big news is that Jupiter transits into your opposite sign of Scorpio for the first time in twelve years. The focus for the coming year is going to be expansion and creativity in personal relationships. How others view you is going to change in this period and you will attract philosophical personalities towards your social circle.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

September:

Your ruler Mercury goes direct from the 5th in the royal sign of Leo, igniting the communication area of your solar chart. Over the last three weeks in August you might have found yourself trying to convey your feelings only to find out no one had been listening. September is the month when all that changes, as the power of your voice dominates your behaviour and how others treat you.

October:

There is a light-footed energy this month that helps create new space in your social exchanges and self-expression. From the 10th, the planet Jupiter ingresses into the work sector of your chart for a period of a year. This helps you to focus on your health, and how you can be of service to others in work. On the 20th, your ruler Mercury opposes Neptune, a creative and spiritually oriented combination that can bring in new ideas or woolly thinking.

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

September:

There is an energetic shift this month as we enter the autumn equinox on the 22nd, allowing the crabs to focus on the home and family- a popular subject for the Cancer zodiac sign. This will come as a welcome relief from the eclipses of August, as you try to rebalance your internal emotions with your mental reactions; how very autumn equinox of you.

October:

Deep-residing emotions sometimes need to come to the surface; our ancestral lineage is an important aspect of our personal development. The Sun shines in the midnight sector of your solar chart, igniting those deep hidden emotions. This will also give you Cancerians a chance to work on your past actions in a healing way that allows you to grow as a person.

 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

September:

The Sun’s rays are beaming on the financial aspect of your life. This could be a good thing if you spend wisely, or maybe there is an over optimism regarding your money situation? – moderation could work best here. However, the planet Venus travels in your own sign until the 20th, so relax in her beauty and creativity, especially on the 16th and 17th when the Moon is in your own sign.

October:

The planet Jupiter from the 10th enters the home sector of your chart for a year; this could be a time to think about relocating or general expansion within the house that you already live in. There is an emphasis now on companionship and spiritually connecting with those close to you. This could mean you start to hold workshops in your home, or just being much more social. Jupiter is going to push you to explore your inner potential.

 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

September:

From the 5th, your ruler starts moving forwards after the retrograde period of last month. This will be a welcome relief for most of you since delays and frustrations have caused you to over analyse your own emotions rather too much. This will be improved dramatically on the 10th, since Mercury begins its transit in your own sign signalling a new positive mindset for you that can help you attract those that expand your creative insight.

October:

The energy intensifies for you as the planet Venus dances through your zodiac sign until the 14th. Thereafter, it will enter into the financial aspect of your solar chart – great for luxuries, not so great for being frugal. The theme for the month is about consolidating the last four months and putting new plans into action.

 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

September:

This is the last month of Jupiter’s transit in your own sign. Over the last year Jupiter has brought opportunities, some good, some all hot air. The point is that it is time to review the last twelve months and the changes that have been brought about from your own expansive need to change the status quo. At the end of the month Jupiter opposes Uranus, a symbol of expansion meets rebellion.

October:

On the 10th Jupiter moves into Scorpio in your 2nd solar house; over the next twelve months how you earn your money and how you value yourself will dominate the undercurrents of your intentions in how you progress with your life. On the 14th your ruler Venus enters your own sign, enabling you to feel at one with your core self.

 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

September:

There is a sense of optimism radiating from the Scorpio aura this month, that catches others unawares but also entices people towards you. Scorpios have a reputation for being intense, but this is how you express your passionate nature; those who are less enthusiastic than you simply vanish from your life. These next four weeks are a dress rehearsal for October.

October:

With a drum roll and a crash and a bang, the planet Jupiter enters your own sign on the 10th, creating new opportunities for growth and change in your life over the next twelve months. This is an important cycle in your astrological evolution. How you respond to this energetic shift will be down to you. Jupiter brings an external awareness that can make you feel restless and excited; choose your new path wisely over the coming year.

 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

September:

Friends and associates will be giving you a helping hand as you seek to improve your current working life. However, the more spiritual meanings to life are now beginning to drive you in your yearnings for new and exciting opportunities. September is a month when your ruler Jupiter is traveling fast in the sign of Libra, which rules your hopes and wishes; the only thing you have to do is know your inner motivations.

October:

Your ruler the mighty Jupiter transits from the 10th into the zodiac sign of Scorpio for a twelve month period. This is a major month of inner transformation, as Jupiter is now travelling in your 12th solar house, the lord of karma. How you utilise this energy over the coming year is going to be up to you, but may I suggest a spiritual activity that centres you, but also allows you to help others in their own personal journey.

 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

September:

The mind has a fantastic capacity to conjure up new and uncharted waters if you allow it to drift this way and that way. There is a fascination with new faraway lands that can give you a real creative spark to your problem solving. Your ruler Saturn is moving quickly (for Saturn) through your 12th solar house – any last minute adjustments to your own spiritual journey, this is the month to act.

October:

Friends and work colleagues can give you a real sense of value, if you let them get close to you. These next four weeks see you push through with a variety of projects designed to influence the right kind of people. Jupiter on the 10th moves into your solar 11th house till November next year – use the planetary energy wisely by concentrating on the collective rather than the individual.

 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

September:

Your ruler Uranus is still retrograde over the next two months, leading to a sense of inner work and taking a step back from your projects. This can be a fruitful month especially in regards to other people’s resources and inner motivations. The ability to pinpoint from a psychological perspective how others are feeling is profound in September, and should help you with your own self-identity.

October:

Trying to self-analyse can be a good thing depending on the timing; during October it might be a better idea to be much more outward looking about what you can achieve, gaining inspiration from others rather than yourself. Aquarius is a sign that thinks deeply (sometimes rather too much), but this can lead to stagnation in terms of ideas and action.

 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

September:

You are blessed with two rulers, Jupiter and Neptune; this can lead to a certain amount of duality which can confuse others. However, your focus this month is based on your career aspirations and how others can help you in your quest for independence and freedom. Neptune is retrograde in your own sign this month, so be cautious about giving your power too easily to the wrong people.

October:

The energy of Jupiter from the 10th is going to be firmly on your side for the next twelve months, expanding your desire to travel and explore new places in the world. This will also bring in a period during which you may want to go back into education or publishing; the world really can be your oyster if you are prepared to venture forth with passion and open-mindedness.
