October 2022 Motivational Astrology Forecast: Finding Yourself Again!

October 2022 Motivational Astrology Forecast: Finding Yourself Again!

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” — Thoreau

It’s human nature to sometimes feel lost, confused about our direction or in a ‘holding pattern’ with our lives. We’ve all been there. That feeling of being unfulfilled, restless, uncertain. Which way to go? What to do? But this is part of personal growth. Feeling unsure about who we are, where we’re going or what we are accomplishing is actually an important part of our personal evolution. These feelings are trying to tell you something about your life — that it’s time to re-examine who you are and what you’re about! It’s time to revisit the things that you love, that awakened your curiosity, that made you feel excited about the future! It’s your opportunity to delve within, journey toward greater self understanding and refocus on your true being. It’s time to find yourself again!

Finding yourself should be an exciting period of self exploration and reinvention! Think of it as your personal Renaissance — a time of reestablishing/re-creating who we are! Instead of skimming the surface of our identities we can dig deep into our thoughts and desires. Notice what makes you happy, what makes you excited or what sparks your mind. Be confident in affirming what you truly are, rather than what you think you should be or what others want you to be. Finding what is right for you and what makes you unique (and you are!) puts you on the road to loving yourself, finding more happiness and moving forward knowing that there are brighter times ahead as you re-create a new you!

The month ahead is a very busy month, planet-wise. October brings strong Scorpio energies, helping to awaken the greatness that resides within each of us! It’s a time for looking more deeply at ourselves and unmasking emotional blockages while finding more personal empowerment. Pushed on by a Partial Solar Eclipse, New Moon, Sun, Mercury and Venus moving into Scorpio (activating transformation and allowing our inner phoenix to rise!), along with Mercury, Saturn and Pluto going Direct (the opportunity to move forward and advance our goals), we are encouraged to dig deep, unearth our inner understanding of who we are and discover answers to our personal mysteries. This all serves to fortify our inner powers of self-belief, allowing our personal light and individual gifts to shine forth for the world to see!

How can you make use of this months celestial energies to feel empowered, overcome challenges and increase the confidence and honour your unique self? Here’s my Motivational Astrology Forecast for October 2022:

* 2 October: Mercury Retrograding in Virgo goes DIRECT! — Forward-Focused! Today Mercury goes Direct from it’s ‘backward’ path, which is our celestial signal to move forward in our expression, actions and thinking! This planet ruling our thoughts, movement and communications, in the sign of detailed Virgo, ushers in a more purposeful chapter highlighting forward-thinking and future-focused energy! This is an advantageous time for going forward with in-depth planning or keener exploration of future dreams, while employing our intuitive gifts to assist with any problem solving. As we move ahead, despite any obstacle, let us hold tight to our positive expectations of a better future, to make sure our voices are heard, to continue to believe in the greater good and to trust that justice, honesty and integrity will prevail! May peace, positivity and progress surround YOU! Mercury Blessings to You! Mercury will be in Virgo until 11 October.

* 9 October (8 October in U.S./Europe): Pluto Retrograding in Capricorn goes DIRECT! — Advancing Positive Change! As the planet of Transformation now goes Direct after 5 months of ‘backwards’ motion, we can start to make inroads to greater advancement in our lives. As Pluto continues its movement through the sober sign of Capricorn, we get serious about making making further positive changes to ourselves and our world. The overall theme of this cycle is coming to terms with karma, focusing on elimination and regeneration and the metamorphosis we go through enabling us to change for the better. We are encouraged now to evaluate ourselves, the issues that bring us feelings of security and structure and how our behaviour effects our future. This Pluto cycle represents a major time of discovery, insight and revamping our lifestyle when it comes to society, government, world order and Mother Earth. It also pushes us to think about the changes we want to make to our belief structures and our power as individuals and as citizens of the world. Pluto Blessings to YOU! Pluto will be in Capricorn until 24 March 2023, although will continue to go back and forth in Aquarius/Capricorn until December 2024.

* 10 October (9 Oct in U.S./Europe): Full Moon in Aries — Courageous Action! This strongly charged Lunar phase, in the first of the Fire signs, illuminates our need for greater independence, liberation and positive change! An Aries Full Moon magnifies our self identity, so our need for assertive energy and emotional freedom is turbo charged. We are encouraged now to push past boundaries, both inner and outer, to better discover our true dynamic selves and find greater confidence in all that we do. Take advantage of this opportunity to feel more personal power, breaking free of any self doubt or fear in order for your true self to emerge! This is a time of culmination, where we can summon greater courageous action going forward! Full Moon Blessings to YOU! *Full Moon 16° Aries Times:* Where are YOU?: New Zealand: 10 Oct 9:55am; New York: 9 Oct 4:55pm; Chicago: 9 Oct 3:55pm; Los Angeles: 9 Oct 1:55pm; Vancouver, BC: 9 Oct 1:55pm; Toronto, Canada: 9 Oct 4:55pm; Sydney: 10 Oct 7:55am; Mexico City: 9 Oct 3:55pm; Buenos Aires: 9 Oct 5:55pm; London: 9 Oct 9:55pm; Zurich: 9 Oct 10:55pm; Santorini: 9 Oct 11:55pm; Ukraine: 9 Oct 11:55pm; Singapore: 10 Oct 4:55am; Hong Kong: 10 Oct 4:55am; Cape Town: 9 Oct 10:55pm; New Delhi: 10 Oct 2:25am(IST); Moscow: 9 Oct 11:55pm; Dubai: 10 Oct 12:55am.

* 11 October 2022 (10 Oct in U.S./Europe): Mercury goes into Libra — Balanced Expectations! A big part of keeping greater balance in our lives is not expecting total happiness or total calamity at every turn. Ditch the drama! Moderation helps us cultivate greater emotional, mental and physical peace, especially when combined with an optimistic outlook that looks for the best but accepts things may not always work out as well as we’d like. This new cycle of “balanced thinking” helps us to better plan our goals and work toward a more creative, “zen” approach to ourselves and others. This is a beneficial cycle for making worthwhile connections, cultivating artistic expression, seeking ways to manifest harmony and advancing harmonious communications. What part of your life needs more harmonious attention? Mercury Blessings to YOU! Mercury will be in Libra until 30 September.

* 23 October 2022: Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius goes DIRECT! — Learning from the Past! As the planet representing accountability, maturity, hard work and achievement now moves forward after over 4 months of Retrograde motion, we too can better advance the plans and projects we want to implement for our futures. Saturn, the ‘Great Teacher’ offers us a fresh chance to learn from our past experiences and implement more insightful and inventive concepts for strengthening our future. This cycle will focus on gaining awareness of the importance of each individual, cultivating greater tolerance, broad-mindedness, liberalism and working toward a collective consciousness — shared beliefs and attributes that can unite us rather than divide us. Now that Saturn will be going Direct, our energies are moving forward and looking to the future with insight gained during the Retrograde phase. We are wanting to connect with like-minded individuals who share our visions and inspire our uniqueness. It is a new cycle for taking responsibility for our decisions and actions, while building confidence in our skills and goals for the future. We can also see further technological, medical and scientific advances along with new methods of working toward the betterment of society. Saturn helps us grow through past mistakes, failures and hardships. By using the knowledge that we gain from these experiences, we can acquire greater wisdom, self awareness, patience and finally, advancement. This is a time of honouring our individuality and making strides in righting the wrongs around us, encouraging a new era of ethical concerns and rewarding authenticity. Saturn Blessings to YOU! Saturn will be in Aquarius until 7 March 2023.

* 23 October 2022: Venus goes into Scorpio — The Power of Love! With the planet ruling love, attraction and relationships moving into this intense Scorpio sign, our passions become pronounced, perceptive and provocative. We can now experience a true body-mind-soul connection with those we love as well as attracting to us more karmic kinships. This can also be a powerful time of emotions and expression of affections. We can become consumed with love, wanting it to transform or transcend our everyday lives though our deep feelings. Be mindful of possessiveness, jealously and “all-or-nothing-at-all” behaviour and compulsions. This is a time for honouring our passions and the power of beauty and love within you! Venus Blessings to YOU! Venus will be in Scorpio until 16 November.

* 23 October 2022: Sun goes into Scorpio — Embrace Your Power! Today a new empowering cycle unfolds, bringing greater depth, intimacy and emotional awareness to our lives! We’re now given the power to relinquish doubts, fears and superficial issues clouding our lives in order to get to the heart and soul of our beliefs and feelings. We’re encouraged to tap into our perceptive and investigative abilities, allowing us to uncover and embrace greater inner fortitude, resilience and power. Take this opportunity to look within and transcend issues that have caused restriction in your life. By initiating positive change now, we bring immense healing and powerful energy into our lives and into the lives of others. This is your reminder that you are the Light in the Dark — keep shining your inner sparkle! Solar Blessings to YOU! The Sun will be in Scorpio until 22 November.

25 October 2022: New Moon in Scorpio/Partial Solar Eclipse — Summon the Strength! Transformational energies combine with new beginnings, turbo charging us toward renewal! Welcome more courage to move forward, strength to triumph over difficulties and greater ability to dump negative emotions that have held you back! Find motivation now to start new endeavours, tap into greater power and conquer what you could not before. A door now opens, transformational energy flowing through, helping your personal phoenix to rise from the ashes! This signals a time of greater perseverance that can last for many months ahead! Additionally, as this New Moon is also the occasion of a Partial Solar Eclipse, this highlights a time of greater awareness, bringing light to matters and ushering in new beginnings. Its a time when our horizons can expand and we take take big strides forward. During a Solar Eclipse, the moon is positioned between the Earth and Sun. Eclipses are said to bring about powerful events that open the doors to new energies in our lives. They challenge is to be more conscious of our thoughts, aware of our actions and mindful of what we are doing in our world. As we change our focus, our outlook and world changes also! *New Moon Blessings to YOU!* *New Moon 2° Scorpio Times:* Where are YOU?: New Zealand: 25 Oct 11:49pm; New York: 25 Oct 6:49am; Chicago: 25 Oct 5:49am; Los Angeles: 25 Oct 3:49am; Vancouver, BC: 25 Oct 3:49am; Toronto, Canada: 25 Oct 6:49am; Sydney: 25 Oct 9:49pm Mexico City: 25 Oct 5:49am; Buenos Aires: 25 Oct 7:49am; London: 25 Oct 11:49am; Zurich: 25 Oct 12:49pm; Santorini: 25 Oct 1:49pm; Ukraine: 25 Oct 1:49pm; Singapore: 25 Oct 6:49pm (SGT); Hong Kong: 25 Oct 6:49pm; Cape Town: 25 Oct 12:49pm; New Delhi: 25 Oct 4:19pm(IST); Moscow: 25 Oct 1:49pm; Dubai: 25 Oct 2:49pm (The Partial Solar Eclipse will be visible only from Europe, parts of Africa, parts of Asia and the Atlantic and will have maximum occurrence at 11:00am UTC or 12:00am on 26th here in New Zealand).

* 28 October 2022 (27 Oct in U.S.): Jupiter Retrograde in Aries backs into Pisces — Going Within! Jupiter, the benevolent planet representing expansion and opportunity, is now Retrograding back into the ethereal sign of Pisces. This can signal a time of greater personal reflection, inner growth and readdressing issues of soul and spirit. This Retrograde period encourages us to work on restoring or reviving any project or relationship that needs healing. We can now better face our fears, knowing that we can overcome them by practicing patience and self care, emerging stronger and happier. It’s a good time for re-connection — with yourself, with those you can about and with Universal sensitivity. This period can be utilized for going inward and examining one’s self from an introspective, metaphysical or spiritual perspective. Despite it’s ‘backward’ motion, Jupiter urges us to grow our intuitive natures and embark on holistic endeavours. Look now to greater love and care of one another while working toward increased awareness of social justice, equal rights and improvements to numerous humanitarian projects. As Jupiter moves through ethereal Pisces we may experience a “New Age” feeling of spiritual growth and the chance to make positive changes in how we view ourselves, each other and our world. Jupiter Blessings to YOU! Jupiter will be in Pisces until 21 December, but goes Direct on 24 November.

* 30 October 2022 (29 Oct in U.S./Europe): Mercury goes into Scorpio — Sensing the Solution! A new window of opportunity opens now, allowing us to make positive changes in the way we think and express ourselves! With the planet of thought and expression moving into the sign associated with deeper understanding, we can find better solutions to our life situations. For the next 3 weeks we can get to the bottom of important issues as our investigative skills are sharper and our analytical abilities more precise. This time is advantageous for in-depth study or researching projects, while using intuitive energy to solve problems. We can better understand the motivations of ourselves and others, while transformation of our thoughts and interactions is highlighted. This is a time of impassioned communications, inspirational ideas and empowering personal awareness. Use this cycle to declutter the mind, focus on changing negative mental habits and getting to the heart of any matter. What can you improve when it comes to how you think and communicate — not only with others but with yourself? Mercury Blessings to YOU! Mercury will be in Scorpio until 17 November.

* 31 October 2022 (30 Oct in U.S./Europe): Mars in Gemini goes Retrograde — Defying Distractions! With the planet ruling our energies and actions now going ‘backward’ in the Mercury-ruled sign (representing thoughtful and diversified expression), we need to be extra diligent in keeping a handle on interruptions! There is a lot to keep track of during this restless Martian cycle, but by thoughtfully and carefully persisting, we can use this Retrograde cycle for practicing patience, flexibility and focus on what needs doing! During this ‘reversing’ cycle we may see disruptions and delays in travel, transportation, miscommunications, technology and media (as these are ruled by Gemini too). This is not the time for impulsive action or quick re-actions — think things out very methodically before doing and carefully choose your battles. Use this time to reevaluate what you put our energies into while paying greater attention to detail. Mars Blessings to YOU! Mars will be Retrograde in Gemini until 12 January 2023.

* The Outer Planets stay in a sign for a longer period of time, so their effect on us is more gradual, but significant none the less. Here they are in their current positions:

* Jupiter Retrograde in Aries will move back into Pisces: Jupiter, the “Fairy Godmother’ planet is now Retrograding through the forthright and energetic fire sign of Aries, soon backing into the sensitive water sign of Pisces! Jupiter, the planet representing expansion and prosperity will be tracking through the assertive and action-oriented first sign of the zodiac until 29 October, when it slips back into the last sign of the zodiac, ethereal Pisces. This can signal a time of greater personal reflection, inner growth and readdressing issues of soul and spirit. This Retrograde period encourages us to work on restoring or reviving any project or relationship that needs healing. We can now better face our fears, knowing that we can overcome them by practicing patience and self care, emerging stronger and happier. It’s a good time for re-connection — with yourself, with those you can about and with Universal sensitivity. This period can be utilized for going inward and examining one’s self from an introspective, metaphysical or spiritual perspective. Despite it’s ‘backward’ motion, Jupiter urges us to grow our intuitive natures and embark on holistic endeavours. Look now to greater love and care of one another while working toward increased awareness of social justice, equal rights and improvements to numerous humanitarian projects. As Jupiter moves through ethereal Pisces we may experience a “New Age” feeling of spiritual growth and the chance to make positive changes in how we view ourselves, each other and our world. Jupiter Blessings to YOU! Jupiter will be in Pisces until 21 December, but goes Direct on 24 November.

* Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius, is going DIRECT: Saturn, the planet representing responsibility, maturity and structure, traveling Retrograde through the liberating sign of Aquarius, is soon going Direct! While in it’s ‘backwards’ cycle, we have been revisiting and readdressing major society and government issues, with greater concern for each other and our life on Earth. It’s been a time when we have been asked to focus on greater humanitarian, socially empathetic and altruistic endeavours. We have needed to refocus our attention on the importance of each individual, cultivating greater tolerance, and working toward a collective consciousness. When Saturn goes Direct (on 23 Oct 2022), our energies move forward, looking to the future with insight gained during the Retrograde phase. We are wanting to connect with like-minded individuals who share our visions and inspire our uniqueness.

Saturn will be in Aquarius until 7 March 2023.

* Uranus in Taurus is Retrograde: The planet signifying change, revolution and innovation, is transiting through the sign of Taurus, which represents its opposite — stability, assurance and safeguarding! For the years ahead this Uranus/Taurus pairing will highlight liberation from the customary way of doing things in favor of new methods and inventive techniques. Also, as Taurus rules our personal values, creativity, material goods, finances, food and general enjoyment, we will see new innovations in these areas. Uranus in Taurus brings new light to the way we handle our resources, material wealth, mother nature, and investment interests. During this transit, we can expect a new wave of economic innovation helping us to focus on being more authentic and practical in our approach to things. As Uranus Retrogrades, we will be experiencing further shifting themes on how we view stability. More change will certainly be a feature in our future, so expect change, revolution, fluctuation and acts of defiance. Uranus will be Retrograding until 22 January 2023 and will be Taurus until 7 July 2025.

* Neptune in Pisces is Retrograde: As the planet ruling dreams and creativity continues its Retrograde path through its ruling sign of Pisces, we are encouraged to honour more of our spiritual awareness, artistic inspiration and intuitive insight! As it is now moving ‘backward’, we will be refocusing and reflecting on greater appreciation for the beauty around us as well as within us is also emphasized. We are urged to feel and express greater “we-are-all-one” compassion toward ourselves and others — along with further sympathetic understanding and involvement with humanitarian endeavours. Greater focus on our faith, spirituality and need for understanding of one another is highlighted! With Neptune in Pisces, we are helped to be more ‘in tune’ with our feelings, sensitivities and artistic side of our nature. We can also find further focus on our faith, future hopes, visions of a better tomorrow, spirituality and global understanding. Neptune will be Retrograding until 4 December 2022. Neptune will be in Pisces until 31 March 2025.

* Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn is going DIRECT: As the planet representing Transformation continues its long journey through this sober Earth sign, it will be Retrograding until 8 October 2022. Now going Direct after 5 months of ‘backwards’ motion, we can start to make inroads to greater advancement in our lives. As Pluto continues forward movement through the sober sign of Capricorn, we get serious about making making further positive changes to ourselves and our world. The overall theme of this cycle is coming to terms with karma, focusing on elimination and regeneration and the metamorphosis we go through enabling us to change for the better. We are encouraged now to evaluate ourselves, the issues that bring us feelings of security and structure and how our behaviour effects our future. This Pluto cycle represents a major time of discovery, insight and revamping our lifestyle when it comes to society, government, world order and Mother Earth.

Pluto goes Direct in Capricorn on 8 October 2022 and will enter Aquarius 24 march 2023. Pluto will continue to be going back and forth in Aquarius/Capricorn until December 2024.

* Chiron in Aries Retrograde: As the minor planet/comet Chiron, connected to the archetype of the “wounded healer” moves through the independent, assertive and aggressive fire sign of Aries, our identities are highlighted. During this Retrograde time we will work harder to overcome personal obstacles and strive toward healing past and current wounds in order to find greater strength and courage to overcome difficulties. Chiron is said to act as a link between the conscious and unconscious and as such, can represent transformation in body, mind and soul. As we surmount challenges and personal pains, we find greater empowerment, advancing our unique spirits while manifesting more of our dreams. Chiron will be in Aries until 2027.
