October Femastrology 2020
by Astrologer and Psychic, Victoria Bearden
Buckle up and get ready for a wild ride. We have two Full Moons, the continuation of Mars Retrograde, Mercury going Retrograde, and then some! Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn will be having their last hoorah, making October a fateful and tempestuous month. In short, there’s a lot of energy building up and being grounded and sensible would be a capital idea!
Before Completion: I was musing about Wei Chi, Hexagram 64 of the I Ching while writing this. This symbol indicates a time when the transition from disorder to order ¬¬¬is not yet complete. This can be frustrating, as we want it to be NOW! And yet, even though we are ready for change, things are still not in the right place. But we’re getting there. So, work hard, get your ducks in a row, and think positive. Let’s create a powerful vision of this new cycle that has not yet arrived.
The US Presidential Election: There’s so much I could say, and yet I hesitate. This is probably one of the more complicated Elections Day charts I’ve seen. Donald Trump’s chart is extremely conflicted. It has been all year. Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all in opposition to his natal Venus/Saturn conjunction. Ouch! I have spoken many times about the difficulties Trump’s presidency would endure. It has to be one of the more challenging presidencies on record in many ways. Since Trump’s chart aligns with the USA’s chart very strongly, his troubles are indicative of the karmic lessons this country is working to resolve at this time in our history. America will continue to work through her Pluto Return over the next 2 years, no matter who is at the helm. And I think we will get through it just fine, and become a better version of our former selves. Pluto transits aren’t supposed to be easy, by the way. They are usually pretty gut wrenching, actually.
The Nutshell Version is, the majority of Trump’s transits are mega-challenging, with a possible Hail Mary factor coming from the Moon and the North Node, or Rahu, in Gemini. If I was doing a reading for a “normal person” with this chart, I’d tell them not to leave their house, as a building would likely fall on them. But there is nothing typical or normal about anything that’s happening right now.
Biden’s chart looks quite favorable, and not nearly as dramatic as Trump’s. But there’s an enormous amount of astrological mayhem on November 3, 2020, including Mercury going direct on that very day, while making a testy square to Saturn. This means major communication difficulties. Mercury was also changing direction on the Bush/Gore Election Day, but this one is way weirder. The Sun is in Scorpio, Biden’s sign, and is conjunct his Mars, which would normally be considered a powerful symbol of victory in battle, but also can indicate accidents or the sudden onset of illness. With Uranus in a loose opposition to Biden’s Mars, there’s real reason for concern about his health and safety for a while. Most astrologers are picking Biden, which does make sense, as his chart is far less conflicted.
So, here’s my prediction for one of the most outlandish elections ever. Biden wins, but it’s messy and some really strange things happen. Don’t shoot the messenger, please. My predictions are solely astrological in nature. I do not interject my personal opinion into my calculations. For any of you who want to know the low down on the years of study I put into to this, and the truly bizarre Election Day Tarot Reading I did months ago with my psychic friend “R,” you can contact me personally and I’ll tell you all about it.
There’s a Full Moon at 09° Aries on October 1, 2020, at 2:05 pm PDT. Aries is the warrior, Libra the Peace Keeper. Let’s use this Full Moon to see if we can stand up for what we believe in a peaceful way. Wouldn’t that be cool?
Mercury Retrograde, October 13, 2020, at 11° Scorpio: Mercury Retrograde often makes things more challenging then they ought to be. Sometimes it’s technology, sometimes it’s your car, sometimes it’s bad communication. It is always wise to pull back a little and use caution with big decisions and large purchases. But life goes on, and with a little extra patience and vigilance, you will be none the worse for wear.
The Mercury Retrograde Playlist:
1. Mercury Retrograde Shadow #1 stared on September 23, 2020: This is when things start slipping sideways. Get the big things off your “to do” list ASAP.
2. Mercury Retrograde Storm # 1 starts on October 11, 2020 thru October 16, 2020: This is when you know 100% for sure that things are weird. Find your center, and maintain. Mercury will turn retrograde right in the middle of this.
3. Mercury turns Retrograde on October 13, 2020 at 6:05 pm PDT. This is the day when it happens. Keep your wits about you. It can be stressful.
4. Mercury Retrograde Storm # 2 starts November 1, 2020 thru November 6, 2020. This is the second “spin zone,” with Mercury turning direct right in the middle of it. Things can be chaotic as the energy shifts. Can’t wait to see how this affects the US Presidential Election.
6. Mercury turns Direct on November 3, 2020 at 9:50 am PDT: Things start to turn around. Give it a few days.
7. Mercury Retrograde Storm # 2 from November 6, 2020 thru November 19, 2020: This is just the “hangover” phase, and usually isn’t a really big deal. This is when attempt to make sense of what happened during the previous weeks. Clean up on aisle 45.
There’s a New Moon at 23° Libra, October 16, 2020, at 12:31 pm PDT. This is a pretty tense New Moon, with a nasty T-Square to Mars and Pluto. Be patient with grumpy people if difficult situations arise. That being said, there’s always a way to use the energy for something better. Libra stands for balance, truth, justice, and diplomacy. Affirmations about healing, unity, and understanding would be appropriate and helpful during this New Moon. Set intentions that help you with motivation and goal setting. This would be a good day to do a ritual to create harmony, or make a vision board to represent creativity, health, community, and prosperity.
The Sun enters Scorpio, October 23, 2020. Scorpio is the Water Sign at the “deep” end of the pool. Happy Birthday, Scorpions!
There’s a Full Moon at 08° Taurus on October 31, 2020, at 7:49 am PDT. You know the old saying, once in a Blue Moon? Well, we got one! Happy Halloween, Happy Samhain!!!This is a superb opportunity for magic, intention setting, and positive rituals to evoke transformation, healing, and abundance. The energy will carry over strongly to November 1, 2020, All Souls Day. This is an extremely powerful Full Moon and the spirit energy will be rolling! Call to the Ancestors and your guides to help with anything you’d like to know. This should be amazing!
Opportunity Days: October 4, 12, 14, 17, 18, 20, 27 and 31
