The Voyage Intensifies and Astrology Forecast October 4-10

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Issues and events are intensifying now. Trump contracting of Covid will shift so much, including how everyone sees the coming election; and how everyone sees the Virus itself now.

Many people were still clinging to the notion this Virus was just another flu bug, that people were taking it all too seriously.

And how will people see the President now, after he has made light of the virus many times.

Saturn just turned from Retrograde to Direct on Tuesday the 29th and Pluto changes directions similarly Sunday the 4th of October. Mars in Aries squares these planets, and that adds much forceful energy to these planets changing directions

We let you know last week that these formations were seriously threatening Trump’s sense of comfort and safety by making hard aspect to his natal Venus in Cancer. We also stated that something big would erupt this week.

And of course that all happened when he was taken to the hospital after testing positive for Covid-19.

Remember that the two planets going back Direct again are Saturn and Pluto, two very destructive, yet transformational planets when brought together.

Their exact conjunction with one another last January 2020 brought with it the Covid Virus and than the downfall of the stock market.

As they both go Direct now, these issues and more are ready to go to the next level.

Pluto goes back Direct on Sunday and we are feeling its power. Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio and also the “Guardian of the Underworld”.

We can expect darker energies to continue erupting in our world, energies demanding we get to the root or core of issues in order to facilitate change and transformation.

Old ways are needing to be released, old ways that have been “fighting for dear life”. Make America Great Again was a call to go back to the ’50s in America and that ship sailed away long ago.

Now it is almost time to get ready to set our compasses to where we need to go now.

And after the election, right on Winter Solstice, when dark energies are at their strongest and surrounding us; we experience on the same day Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

This Winter Solstice annual turning point is an even bigger turning point this year than usual. It is a turning point into the Age of Aquarius.

But symbolically as it is happening on Winter Solstice, it is happening then to show us that amidst the darkness, the light is beginning to grow. And just like at Winter Solstice, the light begins to grow each day afterwards.

That symbolizes hope as we know we are on the path for the light of Springtime. The Church celebrating the Christ birth a mere few days afterward, put Christmas in the same energetic. It is doubtful Jesus was truly born at that time of year.

We will feel the power of Pluto all week, as Mars in Aries exactly squares Pluto in Capricorn on Friday October 9.

Power struggles are more likely this week, out in the greater world, but also in our personal lives.

So be careful to stay aware of these energies. Maybe you want to avoid the conflicts that go so easily with this Pluto/Mars factor.

Or maybe it is needed in order to “bring issues to a head”, to go to the edge so that issues previously buried can be recognized again and dealt with.

This Pluto/Mars aspect has the ingredients for war or at east intensified conflict. Out in the world keep an eye on places that are looking more dangerous lately: Kashmir/Pakistan/India; Israel/Palestine; Iran; China/Taiwan; Russia/Ukraine.

From another angle, the lunar cycle shows us the waning half of that cycle, as we have moved past the Full Moon in Aries this past week.

Inward and Yin-ward often come with a waning Moon, but adding another “flavor to the mix” is Mercury going Retrograde next week Tuesday October 13.

Then we are only 3 weeks away from Election Day.

I still believe Biden/Harris will win, but the process getting there and being there afterward, will not be pretty.

There are 2 powerful eclipses; an ending of Mercury Retrograde on Election Day; Jupiter conjunct Pluto; New Moon in Scorpio; and of course Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on Winter Solstice.

Remember from a bigger picture, this is all part of the bigger plan of moving from an Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius.

Labor pains are already painful and will get worse. But the baby will be beautiful.

Love and Truth; Diversity Within Unity; Fairness and Justice. These are our guiding stars, not money, fame, and power. Money, fame, and power will continue to be sought after, but they and everything else report to the Light of the Guiding Stars above.
