While astrology’s mischief maker Mercury is retrograde, Pluto and Saturn are about to turn direct, the Moon will launch a new phase in a cardinal sign and Venus will change signs. Events get underway on October 6th, when a new Libra Moon coincides with powerful Pluto emerging from its six-month slumber. Since April 27th, its transfiguring force has been applied to the late degrees of Capricorn. Pluto explores shadowy worlds, and Cap is the sign of institutions, governments and big business. Emerging under the Sun sign of deliberation and justice, and notably on its new Moon, Pluto is probably packing quite the drop.

But alert, eager Mercury isn’t retrograde yet. While the Messenger is still making forward progress. its uplifting trine to jovial Jupiter earlier in the afternoon is apt to help us get more than a few boxes checked.

Detriment is the term astrologers use when a planet is in the opposite sign of its domicile. For example, Venus is presently in Scorpio, opposite of her home sign of Taurus.

The good vibrations flowing from Monday’s new Moon will beam throughout most of the workweek. Intensity returns early on Friday morning when the Moon will roll into possessive Scorpio, followed by Venus later that day. Plans to get while the getting is good are favored when organized, detailed Virgo is at the helm, and Monday’s aspects are opening a brief yet auspicious window. Setting the stage for that new Moon, on Monday morning, Mars will trine Pluto and Venus will trine Jupiter.
Mercury’s move into Libra on Monday, under a Gemini Moon, will temporarily bring the number of planets in air signs to five, and give us a quick glimpse into the character of the next two months. Air signs correlate to the mental plane, and similarly, Mercury represents the intellect. The Moon will shift the planetary balance back to four when it enters watery Cancer on Tuesday night. But the start of this week is offering a sample of coherence that may prove highly valuable during Mercury’s long transit. In the near term, Mercury will benefit from the co-presence of Venus in diplomatic Libra.
