Astrology for October 2022
Category: Forecasts and Horoscopes Written by Michelle Karen
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Nauthiz “need”. Are we confusing need and want? Shouldn’t wants come after needs? This month, the connection between giving and receiving should also be considered carefully. What do we really require to live a balanced, healthy life, and create fulfilling relationships? A good month to make lists that will help us manifest what we need.

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until Wednesday November 23rd. Its shadow period continues until February 15, 2023. The degrees covered in October (3º08’ Aries- 29º45’ Pisces) are symbolized by: “A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up, begins to look like it”, “Two lovers strolling through a secluded walk”, “A cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country”, “ A comedian entertaining the group”, and “A woman has risen out of the ocean, a seal is embracing her.” We are invited to revisit our beliefs, strengthen our integrity, our moral standards, and our connection to the divine. This is a time of philosophical and spiritual rebirth, seeing through the masquerade of appearances, and rekindling our enthusiasm, our faith, and our trust in ourselves and the universe.
Moreover, Jupiter returns one last time to Pisces on October 28 until Dec 21, 2022. A wonderful few months to focus on our spirituality, allow ourselves some quiet, reflective, meditative time. Our faith, our sense of sacredness and mysticism are likely to be renewed. Our intuition is intensified. Our nocturnal dreams could be particularly vivid and meaningful.
Neptune is still retrograde until December 3rd with a shadow period remaining until March 25, 2023. The degrees traveled in October (23º39’-22º58’ Pisces) are symbolized by: “An inhabited island” and “A materializing medium giving a séance”. It is important that we discern spiritual imagination from reality. The limit could be particularly blurred, causing illusions and smokescreens. Our psychic strength, the clarity of our intuition are being severely tested. Trusting and staying in integrity with our inner perceptions is particularly important.
Uranus remains retrograde this whole month until January 21, 2023. Its shadow period remains until May 9, 2023. The degrees traveled in October (18º22’-17º18’ Taurus) are represented by: “A new continent rising out of the ocean” and “A woman airing an old bag through a sunny window”. Old structures are crumbling fast. Relationships are rapidly changing in ways that force us to balance intimacy and freedom, individuality and connection. The ways in which we make money, how we deal with resources and food supplies are also being completely transformed.
Mercury turns direct on October 2, at 24º22’ Virgo. Its shadow period remains until October 17. This degree is symbolized by: “A flag at half-mast in front of a public building”. Health issues may return to the forefront. Challenges related to work and employment may emerge. Communications could be chaotic. Disorganization could occur in the midst of unexpected information being revealed. Previous decisions may be called into question. Plans are suddenly disrupted. People change their minds. The existing order is being challenged.
Pluto turns direct on October 8. Its shadow period remains until January 30, 2023. The image associated to this degree (26º07’ Capricorn) is represented in the Sabian Symbols by the following image: “A mountain pilgrimage”. While Pluto was retrograde we embraced our fears, faced our hidden wounds, recognized our deepest, darkest emotions, and owned our sense of power. Our journey towards personal mastery brings more challenges requiring effort, endurance, inner strength, and resolve.
Saturn remains retrograde until October 22nd. Its shadow period extends until January 27, 2023. The degree it turns direct on (18º35’ Aquarius) is represented by the following image: “A forest fire quenched”. Our structures are tested. Fears we thought we had transmuted, anxieties, issues with authority and time could re-emerge forcing us to truly face our inner demons and stand in true mastery.
Solar Eclipse in Scorpio (2º00) on Tuesday 10/25. The image associated to this degree is: “A broken bottle and spilled perfume”. Eclipses always mark powerful transformations on our evolutionary path. This one brings great seriousness and maturity of thought, as well as intense feelings. Our love life could shift a 180º, bringing to the surface powerful buried emotions of control, jealousy, possessivity, and passion. Friendships could turn to love, while alienation could occur in an existing relationship. The need to balance intimacy and freedom, while respecting our own individuality is particularly strong. Repressed past traumas may resurface to be healed. A strong need to access the mystical dimension of love and sexuality is featured prominently in this chart.
Mars turns retrograde on Sunday 10/30 at 25º37’ Gemini and will remain so until January 12, 2023. Its shadow periods lasts until March 15, 2023. This degree is symbolized by: “A winter frost in the woods”. Tempers are likely to flare up causing arguments and harsh words we might later regret. Best to think before we react as the damage caused could be irreparable. Power struggles are likely to emerge. Hidden anger bursts out at the most inopportune times. Violence is not impossible. Positive growth is stifled. A period best spent journaling, away from potentially aggressive individuals and dramatic situations.

This month’s intentional meditation starts on Saturday 9/10. Let us take out as many blank sheets of paper as we have intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they basked in the light of the Full Moon in Aries at exactly 1:55 PM. Once that moment passes, let us gather our Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.
On Tuesday 10/25, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 3:49 AM for the New Moon (Eclipse) in Scorpio. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….

It is important that we remain as practical as possible and avoid all drugs and alcohol.
Wednesday 10/12: Mercury Opposition Jupiter (12:24 AM)
We should be careful with people who seem too good to be true. Our optimism could override the sensible assessment of a situation and make us promise more than we can deliver.

Wednesday 10/19: Sun Square Pluto (6:33 AM), Mars Square Pluto (11:03 PM)
Ultimatums are not advised today as they are likely to backfire. Frustrations, power struggles, and manipulations could abound, forcing us to make a definitive stand that preserves our integrity.

Thursday 10/27: Mercury Square Pluto (6:09 AM)
We could experience some frustrations as others are not readily collaborating with, or even understanding, our ideas. We could be confronted to sharp divisions among people, and experience passive resistance. Best to lay low and keep our opinions to ourselves.
