Astrological Monthly Forecast October 2021

The last three months of 2021 could give the worldview a very interesting turn of events….

We are in an unprecedented period of massive changes, climatically speaking, the global pandemic and economic impact, migratory flows and mass demonstrations. 
The current political climate is riddled with a perception of injustice, a struggle between good and evil.

In general, October 2021 is said to be a month of purification, cautious progress and recovery. With the strong Libra energy, October 2021 is generally a month of peace and balance, but that changes when Mars enters the intense waters of Scorpio on Halloween.

October 2021 will be marked with four planets turning direct after being retrograde!
Pluto in Capricorn from October 6, 2021, Saturn in Aquarius from October 11, 2021, Jupiter in Aquarius from October 18, 2021 and Mercury in Libra from October 18, 2021.
With these planetary giants direct again, it’s like time is speeding up. However, we’re dealing with a recurrence of themes that have been current since the summer of 2020.
In many ways, however, this period will feel like we are taking two steps forward and one step back.

On the same day Pluto in Capricorn turns direct, the New Moon in Libra of October 6, 2021 opens a door to more balance, harmony, equality and justice. Partnerships such as marriages, unions or collaborations become particularly important to all of us.
Many of the resolutions we made at the beginning of the astrological new year with the New Moon in Aries of April 12, 2021 will unfold in the Light of the Full Moon in Aries of October 20, 2021.

During this intense period, the time has come to move forward with the planned reform plans.
In the coming weeks and months, the power to make profound changes in our lives becomes more emphatic and immediate.
However, the shadow period of Pluto retrograde will remain in effect until mid-January 2022, so from that period on, there will be real progress such as growth, renewal, positive political developments and reforms and the resolution of internal conflicts.

While Saturn and Pluto turn direct, we can look forward to the Draconids Meteor Shower in the constellation Draco. On average, 10 shooting stars fall per hour. The Draconids visit us every year from October 6 to October 10, but on October 8, 2021 we see most of the falling stars!
The meteors are dust particles from comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, which was discovered in 1900. The Draconids are best visible early in the morning.

Saturn has been retrograde since May 23, 2021, and now that Saturn will resume direct orbit around the Sun from October 11, 2021, the time has come to put into practice the lessons learned in the “retrograde” period. The direct power of Saturn in Aquarius offers us a mature and realistic view of the future, but also points to the increase in responsibilities and limitations.
Longer-term plans continue to unfold in the coming months.

There will be a greater focus on equality and diversity with Jupiter and Saturn moving directly into Aquarius, but at the same time there will be a battle between growth and constraints in all of these areas. Great strides are being made in science and technology.
With Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, we see a renewed, idealistic and humanitarian energy in communities and social movements, with a focus on organization.
Globally, we will mainly focus on the “future” and what lies ahead with tangible development in the field of Social Media, internet and new apps.

The Great Benefactor Jupiter will continue its radiant path in Aquarius from October 18, 2021 and will remain there until December 28, 2021. Jupiter brings growth and happiness and in the Air element of Aquarius, Jupiter brings smart innovative, humanitarian and social solutions, but with the preservation of individuality within the collective.

Mercury will remain retrograde in Libra until October 17, 2021. The final Mercury retrograde period from early September 2021 has revealed deeply hidden and highly sensitive issues intertwined with intimacy within relationships. Including the shadow period, October 2021 will also continue to be a period of reunification and restoration of connections that have been broken in recent months. This retrograde cycle can affect our close partnerships the most. We might reconsider old positions and relationships, and our observations are usually very idealized.
In a general sense, Mercury retrograde periods send us into the past for more or previously hidden information. They are cycles of learning to let go of control and thinking about problems in a new way.
Mercury retrograde in Libra coupled with Mars in Libra in the first half of October 2021creates a disruptive influence that will test relational dynamics.
With Mars conjunct retrograde Mercury in Libra, the time has come to let the heart speak and let emotions run wild.
During Mercury retrograde in indecisive Libra, it is not wise to make any business or love affair official, because during this period decisions are postponed and processes are painfully slow.
Wait until early November 2021, when the shadow period is over.

Red Warrior Mars is the champion of social justice in Libra and will trine Jupiter in Aquarius in the second half of October 2021, but will remain square to Pluto in Capricorn for the rest of October 2021.
This planetary tension forces us to find an effective solution to the social and economic divide. Mars in Libra always manages to find the golden mean and encourages you to persevere, no matter what.
Mars’ journey through Libra began on September 16, 2021 and will last until October 30, 2021. During this time, relationship issues will become especially important to us, be they romantic, business, or collaborative. Mars in Libra is about cooperation and the will to work together whether we take the more indirect approach or even use passive aggression to get what we want.
A charm offensive is not shunned as a means to get what we want during this cycle, but we may feel indecisive and insecure and less likely to resort to violence. With Mars in Libra we rather enter the mental battle or play the murdered innocence. Wherever you are in your relationships, now is the time to align yourself and work toward your goals with unified strength.

The Sun will travel through the partnership-focused constellation Libra until October 23, 2021. Libra focuses attention on how we judge and interact with those around us. The Sun in Libra is getting dynamic support from Mercury and Mars this month.
The Sun and Mercury in Libra inspire you to think deeply.
At the beginning of October 2021 there could be a commotion as retrograde Mercury in Libra squares up to Pluto in Capricorn, forcing us to bridge the socio-economic gap of growing inequality between rich and poor, between young and old, employed and non-working people and between people with and without a migration background.

The Full Moon on 27º26 in the fire sign of Aries on October 20, 2021 shows the result of all intentions set during the New Moon in Aries of April 12, 2021.
Maybe we are reaping the sweet fruits or the time has really come to change direction.
Now that Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are direct again, we need to keep emotions in check with this bright Full Moon in Aries, as especially now suppressed energies of the past few months are surfacing in the form of violence, rages, self-destructive feelings or malicious actions against others.
This Full Moon is reminding us to think about how we honor ourselves in the context of our close relationships. There can now be new revelations, especially regarding our physical bodies, health, leadership skills, the ability to initiate and start new things, not to mention partnerships. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between independence or dependence.
This Full Moon forms a Grand Square with Mars in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn, urging us to see through social pitfalls with courage, passion and determination.

On October 22, 2021, the annual Orionid Meteor Shower will take place in the constellation Orion.
The “shooting stars” are dust particles that come from the ancient comet of Halley.
Every year the Orionids  visit us from October 2 to November 7. This year, the Orionids are best seen during the night of October 22 to the morning of October 23, 2021.

When the Sun becomes immersed in the stormy seas of Scorpio from October 23, 2021, we will be collectively drawn to explore our intimate and passionate needs more closely.

On the last day of October 2021, we celebrate Halloween, also known as All Hallow’s Eve or Samhain. It is the moment when the veil between the world of the dead and the living is very thin and it is possible to make contact with the souls that have passed on.

On that same day, red warrior Mars enters the mysterious waters of Scorpio. The indomitable energy of Mars feels at home here. Mars in Scorpio is willing to fight to achieve any goal, no matter the consequences. Mars will remain in Scorpio until December 13, 2021.
The Sun in Scorpio welcomes Mars and is square to Saturn in Aquarius. This field of tension also involves a sense of responsibility, both socially and individually. We are faced with responsibilities and limitations from above.
During this period, with the influence of direct Pluto in Capricorn, an existing threat of war could get out of control.
During this period, there is a high probability that China will try to create a war situation in Southeast Asia, the South China Sea and the Western Pacific which may be related to the long-standing conflict with India. America, Japan and Australia can play an important role in this possible war.

Our collective strength and drive will increase as we desire to win, transform and experience deeply. Our feelings can become more extreme because we don’t want a “middle ground”.
We want all or nothing.
Mars in Scorpio will bring us the plutonic fire needed to progress or destroy what no longer works.

If conflicts over social and economic dichotomy are not resolved, in mid-November 2021, these can still erupt, when Mars in Scorpio reaches an exact opposition at 12º27′ with retrograde Uranus in Taurus on November 18, 2021.

So November 2021 will not be the easiest month of the year, but the plutonic fire from Mars could nevertheless provide a temporary economic boost.

Wishing you all a safe October month!
