« Hear and skim present notes right here
Howdy Invisible Good friend, April right here, and the date at this time is October ninth, 2023. Welcome to Episode 203 of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast.

This week, Venus opposes Saturn and prompts an examination of values. Pluto stations direct, Mars enters highly effective Scorpio and connects with authoritative Saturn, and an necessary Libra New Moon brings the disruptive affect of a photo voltaic eclipse. Plus, I reply a listener query about interceptions.

Venus opposed Saturn (Oct. 9, 2023, 11:11 pm PDT)

The week begins with Venus opposing Saturn on October ninth at 11:11pm Pacific Time at 1º02’ Virgo and Pisces. The Sabian image for Venus is 2 Virgo, Massive white cross upraised. And the Sabian image for Saturn is 2 Pisces, A squirrel hiding from hunters. Usually, after we speak about Venus, we’re speaking about cash or relationships. However Venus in Virgo, and particularly together with Saturn, brings up for me the dimension of Venus that’s about values. What will we treasure and maintain pricey? Now that’s essential and really an underpinning of the opposite conversations that we’ve about cash or relationships. What will we worth? Whom will we worth? And the way will we insist on being valued by others?

Venus in Virgo holds very sturdy beliefs and isn’t actually prepared to compromise very simply. And I believe this opposition with Saturn on these specific symbols could possibly be linked to defending those that are smaller or weaker, just like the squirrel that we see in Saturn’s image, from those that are attempting to hurt it. Or perhaps it’s the methods by which we really feel we’re being hunted, for lack of a greater phrase, over our personal values.

However it’s additionally sort of a reminder to not grow to be overzealous in our values and beliefs. The massive white cross upraised for Venus’ image is a suggestion of being zealous and uncompromising in what it’s that we stand for. Now, there’s a time for that. And I believe the issues that we really feel very strongly about, it’s necessary to face up for them. However there are occasions after we can get carried away and we are able to overlook the human issue. Something in Pisces, even Saturn, reminds us to look after each other, to acknowledge each other’s humanity. And after we grow to be too unequivocal in our beliefs, we threat overlooking what’s necessary about different folks. Possibly even individuals who disagree with us about issues.

All opposition elements ask us to get issues into higher steadiness, to acknowledge that the reality between two extremes normally lies proper smack within the center. So, it’s necessary to care about what we care about, and to face up for it, however folks in our lives are additionally necessary. How many people, in recent times, have discovered ourselves throughout the fence from folks we actually care about? The place that they had a really specific opinion, very totally different views than we had, and that it’s been very laborious to search out our approach again to one another. So that is simply an instance of what can occur when our beliefs, our opinions, our creeds take priority over every little thing else in our lives, together with relationships.

Pluto stations direct (Oct. 10, 2023, 6:09 pm PDT)

On October tenth at 6:09 PM Pacific Time, Pluto stations direct at 27º53’ minutes Capricorn, on the Sabian image, 28 Capricorn, A big aviary. Pluto has been retrograde since Could 1st, when it stationed at zero levels Aquarius. Wow, bear in mind Pluto in Aquarius? It feels so way back. And it has been hanging round these late levels of Capricorn since June eleventh.

Once I take a look at this image, I maintain getting this picture of birds bursting out of the aviary, refusing to be contained and managed. Properly, a big aviary appears very a lot to be an emblem of the collective, which is what Pluto represents, and that concept that we’re all in issues collectively. It’s the final word image of the collective.

Within the days round this station, the place Pluto was on the brink of flip direct, the necessity for management and the sensation of strain may be very sturdy. On this case, it could possibly really feel like strain to evolve or to place others earlier than ourselves an excessive amount of of the time. It’s greatest to keep away from all or nothing selections inside a couple of days of a Pluto station. And that is nearly taking us again to that Venus in Virgo the day past because it opposes Saturn.

We is perhaps feeling one thing very strongly proper now, however after the mud settles, we’d see issues in another way and want that we had delayed taking motion. So proper now, actually keep away from, as I wish to say, doing issues that you may’t undo.

Mars enters Scorpio (Oct. 11, 2023, 9:04 pm PDT)

Mars enters Scorpio on October eleventh at 9:04 pm Pacific Time, and will probably be in that signal by means of November twenty fourth. So, Mars symbolizes what we’ll go after, and the way we’ll go after it. When Mars is in Scorpio, what we wish is to uncover secrets and techniques and falsehoods and hypocrisy. We need to get to the reality of each scenario, each relationship.

It’s additionally a time, simply when it comes to work, when it’s nice to do a little analysis. Go deep. Possibly there’s one thing that you just’ve been eager to dig into in your work for a very long time, however the time hasn’t fairly been proper. You haven’t had sufficient hours within the day to do it. However whereas Mars is in Scorpio, it’s a nice time to sort out issues that require that quantity of uncovering and analysis.

What Scorpio desires is to determine belief and intimacy in its relationships, within the work that it commits to, it favors an strategy typically that is a bit more clandestine, in order that we are able to observe what is basically occurring earlier than we act, after which when a call is made, Mars in Scorpio is direct and decisive.

Mars is in Scorpio, as I mentioned, by means of November twenty fourth. And whereas Mars is on this signal, any selections that we vacillated about whereas Mars was in Libra, we’re now in a a lot better place to resolve. And we noticed that with Mars sq. to Pluto final week, which was the final facet that it might make in Libra.

And it actually made us confront some issues that perhaps we hadn’t been in a position to see or hadn’t wished to see. Now, as Mars goes into Scorpio, we’ve a a lot clearer image of what’s what, and we are able to make some selections and discover some decision.

Mars trine Saturn (Oct. 13, 2023, 5:29 am PDT)

Mars trines Saturn on October thirteenth at 5:29 a. m. Pacific Time at 00º54’ Scorpio and Pisces. Flowing elements between Mars and Saturn are very efficient for engaging in issues, as a result of the uncooked vitality of Mars is targeted and disciplined by Saturn, so we’re not simply flailing in all places. We’re centered on getting one thing specific accomplished.

On this case, the ferocity and the protectiveness of Mars and Scorpio may be directed and used within the service of others. Once more, it’s Saturn in Pisces. Saturn is on the Sabian image 1 Pisces, A public market. In enterprise, for instance, this is usually a time when your instincts and instinct can result in effectiveness within the public market.

Libra New Moon/Photo voltaic Eclipse (Oct. 14, 2023, 10:55 am PDT)

And now for the Moon Report for the week of October ninth. It begins with a Libra New Moon photo voltaic eclipse on October 14th at 10:55 AM Pacific Time. It’s a 21º07′ Libra on the Sabian image 22 Libra, A toddler giving birds a drink at a fountain. Isn’t {that a} candy Sabian image of this harmless little one wanting to assist birds by giving them a drink? However it all the time does make me chuckle somewhat bit as a result of, in fact, birds are very able to getting the drink for themselves. They don’t want anybody to assist them.

Eclipses carry change. On this case, change in necessary relationships are possible. And for the reason that eclipse level is sq. Pluto, these may be everlasting adjustments. It could possibly be that, like that well-meaning little lady, we’ve fallen into the behavior of being somewhat too useful with the folks in our lives, or letting them assist us in ways in which aren’t actually vital.

This eclipse is close to the Moon’s south node, and any adjustments to relationships will get us out of our consolation zone, the best way we depend on others an excessive amount of, and push us within the route of that impartial north node in Aries. I discover it useful all the time, at eclipse time, to take a look at previous eclipses close to this diploma. Since they fell in roughly the identical space of your start chart, you’ll usually see recurring themes occur round eclipses close to the identical diploma.

Lately, there was a lunar eclipse on April fifteenth, 2014, at 25º Libra. So, fairly near this one. On October 14, 2004, a photo voltaic eclipse at almost precisely the identical diploma and minute, 21º06’ Libra. On October 12, 1996, there was a photo voltaic eclipse at 19º Libra. And on April 15, 1995, a lunar eclipse at 25 Libra. That eclipse in 2004 is very related as a result of it was additionally on the south node of the moon. So it was one other eclipse much like this one that claims, look, it doesn’t imply you possibly can’t have relationships, however that you must not cover out in relationships.

I used to be speaking to a buddy earlier at this time and saying, the South Node in Libra is like going to a celebration and you are feeling far more comfy having a buddy go along with you. You don’t need to stroll in alone. However the South Node in Libra takes it a step additional and says, “No, if I don’t have someone with me, I gained’t go to the occasion in any respect.”

And that’s what we’re attempting to keep away from. The North Node in Aries is beckoning and saying, “Hey, go to the occasion by your self. Possibly you’ll meet some fascinating folks.” This New Moon, like each New Moon, initiates a lunar section household cycle that unfolds over the following three years. When these cycles start at an eclipse, they’re particularly unpredictable and infrequently dramatic.

So observe these dates, as a result of the story that’s starting at this New Moon will likely be unfolding at these vital moments. The First Quarter within the cycle is on July thirteenth, 2024 at 22 Libra, then 9 months later, a Full Moon on April twelfth, 2025 at 23º Libra, and 9 months later, a final quarter moon on January tenth, 2026 at 20º Libra.

So these are the motion factors on this specific cycle, and I think about every of them will proceed to hold somewhat little bit of this specific eclipse dynamic each step alongside the best way.

Void-of-Course Moon Durations

Let’s take a look at the Void-of-Course Moon durations for this week. On October tenth, the Moon in Leo sextiles Mars at 2:36 a.m. Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about two and a half hours earlier than it enters Virgo at 5:02 a.m. I believe the reflection that’s useful throughout this Void-of-Course Moon interval is that it’s nice to indicate up.

And be fabulous, and be paid consideration to, Moon and Leo. However usually we are able to get additional if we attain out to others for collaboration. That’s the sextile to Mars and Libra.

The Moon and Mars are sometimes somewhat uncomfortable once they come collectively in any sort of facet, as a result of the Moon desires to remain comfy, and Mars may be very difficult. So the place we’re feeling comfy, throughout this Void-of-Course Moon, is within the Leo place. We really feel good simply being ourselves, however reaching out and connecting with that Mars vitality could possibly be very stimulating and will assist us truly go additional with, say, our inventive tasks or assembly new folks, no matter it’s we’d need to do.

On October twelfth, the Moon in Virgo trines Pluto at 1:10 p. m. Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about 4 and one quarter hours after which enters Libra at 5:22 p.m. The Moon in Virgo is implausible for getting issues organized and seeing clearly. And these are the issues that in a trine to Pluto can nearly effortlessly advance our prospects in a very constructive approach.

And on October 15th, the Moon in Libra squares Pluto at one minute previous midnight Pacific time. It’s Void-of-Course for 4 hours earlier than it enters Scorpio at 4:04 a.m. That is the Moon’s remaining facet within the signal of Libra after that photo voltaic eclipse. And the message basically, with the Moon in Libra Sq. Pluto, is about cooperating with out making a gift of your energy. That’s the key to this facet, this Void-of-Course Moon interval, and actually this eclipse.

Listener Query: Interceptions

On this week’s listener query, Listener Susan asks, I’m a lady in her knowledge years, having amassed 71 years of this lifetime’s experiences.”  Congratulations, Susan.

“I’m a protracted pupil of astrology and able to chart readings, but one facet of my very own has all the time perplexed me, that my Capricorn is intercepted. What precisely does that imply, and the way does it have an effect on me?”

Thanks for that query, Susan. Earlier than we speak about intercepted indicators, let’s first speak about home cusps. These are the little dividing strains between the 12 homes of the chart. These strains are an approximation to assist us describe the areas of the sky on the time of your start. In the mean time of your start, the wheel begins with the signal rising within the east. Every signal has 30 levels, and one specifically one was lining up along with her horizon in the intervening time you first drew breath. That is named your Ascendant. It’s a strong level of initiative, response to new conditions, and individualism.

It’s my remark that every subsequent home cusp acts just like the ascendant for that home. It describes how we strategy and carry out the issues associated to that home. Usually, however not all the time, the following home cusp after the Ascendant, the second home, would have the signal following the Ascendant on the cusp.

The third home would have the following signal and so forth. Now should you use what we name an equal home system, akin to entire signal homes, or the system truly known as the equal home system, that’s precisely what occurs. You by no means have interceptions in these programs. However should you use what’s known as a quadrant-based home system – the preferred of those is Placidus, but in addition programs like Koch or Porphyry – the farther north or south you might be born of the equator, and relying on which home system you employ, issues can get wonky. You’ll get these homes that may be very giant. Some are very small.

Susan, in your case, a late diploma of Scorpio is on the Ascendant of your chart. A late diploma of Sagittarius is on the second home, after which we might anticipate to see late Capricorn on the cusp of the third, however no, as a substitute we’ve a really early diploma of Aquarius, the signal that follows Capricorn, on the third home cusp.

What occurred to Capricorn? Capricorn remains to be there, it’s simply that every one 30 levels of the signal are hidden within the second home between the second home that has 27 levels Sagittarius on the cusp and three levels Aquarius on the third home cusp. That is known as an interception. You may consider intercepted indicators form of like silent companions of the homes that they’re in.

The signal on the home cusp does the PR work, whereas the intercepted signal works or reveals motivation behind the scenes. In issues associated to cash, for instance, with Sagittarius on the second home cusp, you may seem very optimistic, be beneficiant, not appear to fret about cash, however beneath the floor, there is usually a sense of shortage and the sense of getting to work very laborious for every little thing you get.

That’s the affect of Capricorn in that second home. The place it most likely comes out is in your skilled life. Saturn, which is the ruler of Capricorn, is within the tenth home of your chart, and your development in your skilled life might need been slowed down by a insecurity, presumably associated to a parental instance, for the reason that tenth home is related to dad and mom. So, as you possibly can see, the planet that guidelines the intercepted signal turns into particularly necessary as a result of it’s the voice of the intercepted signal.

It’s the place the intercepted signal comes out in a visual approach. If one signal is intercepted, so is its reverse signal. In Susan’s case, Most cancers is intercepted within the eighth home. So, on the cusp of the eighth, we’ve curious, breezy Gemini, which supplies an obvious ease with considering or speaking about life’s necessary challenges, like life and loss of life, intercourse and taxes, and showing nearly to be untouched by them.

However Most cancers is behind the scenes. This can be very delicate about these issues. Most cancers is an indication that wants nice belief as a way to be intimate with others, it doesn’t matter what Gemini says. And in Susan’s chart, it’s dominated by the Moon, in fact, in Taurus, within the sixth home. And presumably having a job that’s associated to eighth home issues could possibly be an excellent option to work with this interception.

Now, all of that is depending on the home system you employ to calculate the home cusps. Within the fashionable home programs, the indicators on the Ascendant and its reverse level, the Descendant, are all the time the identical. This contains entire signal and equal home charts, and within the quadrant-based programs, the Midheaven and IC are additionally the identical, from a Placidus chart to, say, a Koch home chart.

However the intermediate home cusps, the 2nd and eighth, third and ninth, fifth and eleventh and sixth and twelfth are inclined to differ, and generally the interceptions do as effectively.

In your chart, Susan, Capricorn is intercepted utilizing Placidus homes, but when I calculate your chart utilizing Koch homes, Capricorn is on the third home cusp and Aquarius is intercepted within the third home. With Leo intercepted within the ninth. To get a really feel for which feels extra correct for you, contemplate in your communication with others represented by the third home, do you are usually unorthodox and spontaneous or measure your phrases very rigorously?

Aquarius on the third home within the Placidus home chart can be that extra unorthodox affect, whereas Capricorn on the third home within the Koch chart can be extra cautious and reserved.

I hope that helps, Susan. It’s a query that I truly get rather a lot. And I believe interceptions may be quite delicate, however they’re additionally actually fascinating.
