Astrology Overview for WC 26th October 2020

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 26th October 2020. All week Jupiter and Pluto are very closely aligned. Jupiter governs international affairs, borders, trading, growth, philosophies and higher principles. Next to Pluto, the zodiac’s perhaps most ruthless agent , and especially with Jupiter in its fall, a less than helpful event which occurs every 12 years with the planets’ transit through the sign of Capricorn, the growth sadly this year, has not just been in the stock market, but loss of life.

One of the things that seems to have characterised the Covid 19 outbreak is the propagation of beliefs. But this virus can’t necessarily be measured only in terms of how many people it kills (which has been tragic and heart-breaking) but in how relentlessly infectious it is. So the growth of Jupiter has been the growth of the numbers getting it, and being a truly world event, few have been immune from its impact be that health wise, freedom of movement wise (very Jupitarian) but also financially wise too.

Because Mars has been angling in such a hostile way to the posse of planets in Capricorn (in Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn) since the end of July, and then been in retrograde, then tangled with the New Moon in Libra, we have a perfect storm of outspoken protest, counter viewpoints being exchanged, fake news, conspiracy theories etc etc and this has been fed in part by a largely unsupervised social media and poor leadership in many countries. All this is likely to reach a crescendo at this time, however as Mercury reverses into, and Venus advances to the sign of Libra we do have an opportunity to listen, understand and exchange ideas with more balance. The Air element which governs Libra is about communication and finding a greater sense of equilibrium can be good for us all.

But the second half of the week does see strict Saturn in a limiting square with Mercury. In terms of the overall zodiac this emphasises the 7th/10th House Axis, suggesting that whilst diplomacy may work well for some, others of us may still encounter an overbearing or rather more officious person that we find hard to take.

The second half of the week also sees the Sun opposite Uranus, bring the potential for surprises, sparks, ignition, friction, resistance to change or sudden changes and separations occurring. As ever in this turbulent year, patience really will be a virtue. There may be some things that trigger us that we feel we most react to, whilst others may be better met by turning the other cheek.

This aspect encapsulates the week’s most notable event, the Blue Moon of Saturday. The second Full Moon of October, this brings a restless vibe to bear, and things that have been stuck, hidden, resistant or bogged down can suddenly need urgent attention. Especially important will be the need to manage our resources, with sudden costs or drops in revenue possible, but still the likelihood is that things that we can no longer resist will need tackling either for us as individuals or for us all collectively.
