Astrological Overview: October 11 - 17, 2021
Astrologer Pam Younghans writes this weekly astrological journal based on planetary influences, and offers perspectives and insights to assist you in making the best use of current energies. This column is not intended as prediction. Your own experience will be more specifically defined by transits to your personal chart.
Aspects of Note this Week:
All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. (For Eastern Time, add 3 hours; For Greenwich Mean Time, add 7 hours.)
MON: Mercury quincunx Uranus WED: Venus sextile Saturn, Sun quincunx Neptune FRI: Sun trine Jupiter, Venus semisquare Pluto SAT: Venus trine Chiron, Mars quincunx Neptune, Mercury sextile Venus SUN: Sun opposite Eris, Sun square Pluto, Jupiter stations direct 10:30 p.m. PDT
THERE IS A GRADUAL but certain shift underway. Within the space of two short weeks, four planets that have been retrograde are ending their backward phase and beginning to move forward once again.
Pluto began moving direct last Wednesday (October 6), Saturn stations direct tonight (October 10, at 7:17 p.m. PDT), Jupiter stations direct next Sunday (October 17), and Mercury follows suit on Monday, October 18. As these planets complete their retrograde phase and begin to move forward, we are likewise supported in making progress in various ways, especially in areas that may have seemed delayed or blocked for a while.
OUR SUCCESS going forward from here will be built on the insights that we gained during the retrograde phase of each of these planets. This is not about "picking up where we left off"; instead, it is about honoring the deeper awareness we now have, and allowing it to guide our next steps.
