We are entering the messy period of 2022


A troubled boat but the man has his hand on the emergency rudder ( 

We are entering a messy period.   I am speaking globally (Mundane) it is not personal, each chart is different so when big events happen it will impact each person in a different manner.   But if you have a little insight, this may help you keep your hand on the rudder of your boat as we move up and down through the waves that are pitching around us.  


Here are the astrology notes to put on your radar.  


Oct 8 Pluto station direct at 26 Capricorn 07 

Oct 22  Saturn station direct at 18 Aquarius 35

Oct 25  Solar Eclipse (Partial) 2 Scorpio 00

Oct 27  Jupiter returns to Pisces. 

Oct 30  Mars station retrograde at 25 Gemini 37 

Nov 8  Lunar eclipse 16 Taurus 01 


If I was to weigh these astrology events in terms of profound energies, I would give Pluto turning direct the most weight.     Pluto is a generational planet.   Because of its orbit it is in some signs longer than others.   In the case of Capricorn, it is a 16-year window.  In Aquarius it will be a 20-year period and in Pisces it will be 22 years.    Currently it is at the end of Capricorn.    Pluto entered Capricorn near the beginning of 2008, then it retrograded back to Sag then a few days after it did its final station direct in Sept (heading for Capricorn), Lehman Brothers collapsed taking the whole USA financial system with it.  This started the Great Recession.    Capricorn of course rules big business and big government, big money and structures that keep our society together.     Even if a person knows NOTHING about astrology, that person could say with confidence what astrologers know--- that our systems have been stressed test in almost every manner since the minute Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008.   


When Pluto stations direct on Oct 8, it is beginning the great wrap up of Capricorn with its sights on Aquarius.   The brackish mixture of Capricorn and Aquarius is daunting.    We would be well served and prepared to understand that Pluto may stress test more structures and management through but not limited to, cyber activities.   Grid failures or hacks are on the table.  Cyber banking, electric black outs and social media could be troublesome.    Pluto is NOT subtle.     Pluto will enter Aquarius on March 23, which is our official first foray, it will return to Capricorn a few months later and then in January 2024 Pluto is in Aquarius where it will stay until 2044.    While 2024 feels like it is three light years from now, Pluto really will begin starting to talk to us after October 8.    


Saturn stationing direct on October 22 is important.  Once Saturn retrograde ends, it is heading for Pisces where it lands on March 7, 2023.    Are you starting to see a theme?   Pluto and Saturn change direction in October, with their sights on a new sign in March.  Both Planets will be seen and felt in October and the next six months as they work out the last degrees of their respective signs.   Aquarius is an air sign, but it is not airy-fairy, it is quite strident in its thinking.  Even the quirkiest, weirdest Aquarius will have a rigid thought baked into their actions.      When Saturn arrived in Aquarius in March 2020 it brought worldwide isolation (through Covid Pandemic).    Aquarius is how we connect with groups of people.   We find our friends and our like-minded groups.  It speaks to charities and societal endeavors.   It is where we connect on ideas.   We see Saturn in Aquarius when New Yorkers pounded pots from their windows to show appreciation to the first responders of covid to orchestras on Zoom playing Beethoven, to those who rallied at the Capitol on January 6, although in that case Saturn was squaring Uranus.   Saturn is disciplined, conservative and appreciates hardship and struggle.  In these final months the question is If we bond with others through uplifting actions or if we let negativity rule our thoughts and actions?   


If all we were looking at was Pluto and Saturn in this window of time that would be big.   But now let’s add the eclipses.    


On October 25 we have the partial solar eclipse in Scorpio and on November 8 is the companion Taurus Total lunar eclipse.     The solar eclipse is the Scorpio New Moon and puts pressure on our values, both what we value and how we are valued.   Envy and jealousy are associated with Scorpio but so is power and evolution.   Out of the ashes, the Phoenix rises.   From the depths of the psyche, Scorpio can harness its energy to rebound better.   Scorpio understands broad plans and strategies when tackling anything and how on-the-ground logistics may need to be adapted to reach goals.   The tension of the solar eclipse may bring out insecurities especially given a wide square with Pluto.  There is an all or nothing component to the eclipse.   We will feel the energy shift on the solar eclipse, and we may get galvanized about something that is important to us.   Perhaps it was something in the background, buzzing around in our psyche and now, we are on-it-dog-gone-it.  Then on November 8, at the total lunar eclipse we consider if our logistics are in sync with our goals that launched on October 25.  We may evolve again, shifting tactics.   However, on lunar eclipse we have Uranus in the mix.   Uranus is the planet of quick change and things that are ‘out of the blue.’  It can change everything with one fell swoop.  This could impact our logistics and our evolution.  It is important to note that this lunar eclipse is on Tuesday November 8th which is the date of the Mid-Term elections in the USA.    Expect the unexpected.   


On October 30, Mars stations retrograde in Gemini.    In many ways this is like a Mercury retrograde given it is in the sign Gemini which rules thinking and communication.    Mars is our actions, and it is the warrior planet.    Mars going backwards in Gemini makes finding the clarity in a lot of noise challenging.   Things will be moving fast.   The very worst possibility during Mars retrograde in Gemini is people amplifying gossip which inspires warriors that are basing their actions on misinformation.   During this time, agents of communication can get the facts wrong.   The retrograde ends January 12.   As you can imagine having Mars retrograde in Gemini while Pluto begins wrapping up of Capricorn and Saturn begins wrapping Aquarius and two eclipses are punctuating emotions—well, it does not take too much imagination to see how Mars may not be helpful.    For all of us we need to stay close to the ground, confirm information repeatedly.   Do not pander in gossip.   During this time, you can of course work on your own communication skills.   What do you keep to yourself?  What is better to wait on before sharing?   What does need to be shared right this minute?   We learn how to pivot during Mars retrograde in Gemini.   Either by mistake or by necessity.   You can step up your inquisitive nature but taking caution not to hit some trip wire that sends you into a frenzy.    If you pull back from media, you will still need to figure out the most sober way to stay informed.   God speed to all of us on this Mars retrograde.  



Jupiter returns to Pisces on October 25 which reminds us of our humanitarian nature.    Jupiter stations direct November 23 and then returns to Aries Dec 20.    While Pisces is tender, creative and accesses vulnerability, it is also speaks to confusion and deception.  Like Mars in Gemini we need to move carefully with any information we receive.    The return of Jupiter to Pisces revisits some themes from March & April.    If you feel any loss, get quiet, meditate, find your heart and tap kindness.    Breathe.  



Let’s all stumble through October and November together.   Find our best selves and keep our hand on the rudder on our boats.
