MOON PHASES (New York time, USA):

NEW MOON in LIBRA on 8th October at 23:46: Personal relationships are at the forefront, balance in communication and the harmony of everyday life. This is the comfort zone of this moment. You may get involved in certain activities with your partner, and if you are not in a relationship you may find someone with whom to have a beautiful life. It is important not to idealize personal relationships or people around you. Enjoy the moments that appear! The Libra ruler, Venus is in Scorpio in a retrograde motion, which can bring some feelings of possessiveness, jealousy and desire for vengeance, and to judge sober people from past relationships. What’s the point of all this? Do not forget in sensitive moments that you are capable of compassion and the power to forgive. Forgiving those around you first forgive yourself. Try to start a new path in your relationship with yourself, and indirectly with those around you.

FULL MOON in TAURUS on 24th October at 22:52: Exaltation urges you to desire comfort, material security, a lively life. Being also Uranus in Taurus, you are willing to innovate new ways to have a good life. Therefore, decisions can be made about protecting personal comfort, while also giving up a form of security. For example, some of you with a strong Taurus features emphasized in the birth chart may consider leaving a job or a home, or a relationship perhaps to protect their peace of mind or physical health. For physical and mental peace, some of you can radically change your life.

MARS is in AQUARIUS until 15th November: You are keen to be right and engage in various collective activities. It is important to try to keep an objective view, otherwise you can lose your reins and you cannot get where you want.

SATURN is in CAPRICORN, until March 21st, 2020.  Saturn is dignified and functioning well. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those of Your career choices that don’t accurately reflect Your authentic selves. Capricorn and Saturn want respect and Saturn in Capricorn will work hard to earn it. Conservation is a big theme now. Taking the easy road is not favoured during this transit. Rewards come from putting in the effort. You might also be striving for more authority in an area of your lives now. Saturn demands simplicity, definition, realism, and truth and it tests your weak areas that need strengthening.

IMPORTANT NOTES: In all my astrological research and interpretations, I use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history. When I am writing about aspects between planets, I use aspect from sign to sign; I am using a traditional way of interpretation of aspects. An aspect is not a must to be at perfect orb to have an effect. It is enough if we have a planet in a sign that forms an aspect with another planet from another sign. The most powerful aspects are: conjunctions, oppositions, squares and trines. 

I wish you the best transits!
