Weekly Transit Watch for October 23 to October 29, 2022

Prepare for a fast-paced week! Beginning on Sunday, October 23, Saturn will station direct, the sun will enter Scorpio, Venus will enter Scorpio, Juno will station direct, and Mercury in Libra will square Pallas in Cancer.

After about five months of rethinking, reviewing, and revising, Saturn is finally ready to station direct in Aquarius at 18 degrees. All fixed signs (Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, Taurus) within -/+ 3 degrees of 18 degrees will be most susceptible to this planetary shift. Restrictive Saturn in Aquarius is finally ready to lay down the law. Now is the time to assume accountability for any responsibilities, commit to your duties, and to work within a unique structure that fits your aspirations. It may be easier to work within greater humanity, especially toward a widespread cause, at this time. Use direct Saturn in Aquarius to feel more certain of how you adhere to traditionalism and modernism, conventionalism and eccentricity. 

Once Scorpio season is in full effect, the sun will be reporting to Mars and Pluto. Although the sun is typically cheerful, it might take on a more drastic, intense tone due to the additional malefic planetary influences. Scorpio season is a time of transmutation, turbulence, pain, and power. Make the most of this time by braving whatever comes your way to get out on the other side stronger than before. 

The love goddess will follow suit by falling from grace once Venus enters Scorpio. Traditionally speaking, Venus is fall in Scorpio which implies that neither planet nor zodiac sign work particularly well together. However, Venus in Scorpio still has notable pros and cons to consider! Venus in Scorpio can be the perfect transit to buckle down on financial opportunities, especially with investments, securing property, and alleviating debt. Romance may also take on a more intense tone as intimacy becomes a more significant part of the pursuit of love. Style and beauty may exude a more vampiric look, but even darkness can be beautiful. Just be wary or mindful of falling into a fixation, obsession, jealous mindset, or playing into controlling tendencies. 

Shortly after, the asteroid Juno will station direct in Pisces, suggesting that we may have to be more discerning in love moving forward. Juno rules over the partner, marriage, and what one is willing to compromise in love. Since Juno retrograde coincided with Neptune retrograde, this may have been a more revealing time for stripping back the fantasy from reality. Singles and couples alike may have noticed a more realistic than idealistic perspective of what marriage could be. Now direct, use Juno in Pisces to seek a romantic, compassionate partner who empathizes with you, but try to avoid entertaining a romantic relationship that evades boundaries and healthy coping mechanisms. 

Sunday will end with Mercury in Libra square to Pallas in Cancer, which suggests a tension between the cosmic messenger and the strategic asteroid. Pallas recently squared the sun and Venus just this past week, giving this final square food for thought. Although squares can be stressful to navigate, it appears that Mercury’s balanced approach to conversation and thinking may be positively impacted by the more feminine, intuitive take from Pallas. Use the head and heart to navigate any negotiations, confessionals, and decisions. 

Two days later, the new moon partial solar eclipse will kick off in Scorpio! As the final eclipse season of 2022 begins, this new moon partial solar eclipse will begin a new chaotic yet fated cycle. Prepare to see the destined effects of this lunation unfurl over the next six months. Given that this is an eclipse, it would be best to hold back from setting intentions, using manifestations, or executing a ritual. Allow bygones to be bygones during this eclipse by surrendering instead of trying to control the outcome. Since this is in Scorpio, themes relating to secrets, debts, assets, affairs, entanglements, and intimacy may come to light.

On Wednesday, October 26, Mercury in Libra will then trine Vesta in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini. Both trines are harmonious as the cosmic messenger is in harmony with the asteroid of the sacred flame and the divergent minor malefic. Considering how rationally and logically focused these aspects are, this would be the perfect time to devise a strategy for networking, socializing, and moving forward with any unique ambitions.

However, Mercury in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn just a day later, which will potentially compromise or transform any plans from the trines the day before. The square is stressful as the cosmic messenger struggles to see eye-to-eye with the CEO of the underworld. Although potentially intense and extreme, something may come to light in conversation. So, when someone shows you their true colors during this square, believe them! Then use the information to your advantage to empower your plan of action and social standing moving forward.

By the end of the week, Jupiter retrograde will enter its last phase of this retrograde period by re-entering Pisces. Now domicile, Jupiter retrograde may feel more subliminal and intuitive. During this last period of the retrograde, you may want to think back to what was going on in your life from January to early May this year. Now is the time to reflect on the spiritual, emotional, and intuitive meanings of this period of the year.

At the end of the week, Venus in Scorpio will trine Juno in Pisces and Mercury will enter Scorpio.
The watery trine between the love goddess and sensitive asteroid will be perfect for feeling out a romantic partner. Singles may find that this introspective trine is necessary for researching, investigating, and, finally, trusting any gut instincts that may pertain to a potential long-term lover. Couples may come together during this sentimental trine to deepen their intimacy while clearing the air of any entanglement, illusion, or confusion.

At last, Mercury will enter the watery depths of Scorpio! Typically, the cosmic messenger prefers to keep it light and easy-breezy or grounded and practical. But Mercury may find that its perceptiveness is sharpened by the intuitive, resourceful scorpion. The catch is not becoming swept up in a rumination station due to a long-standing fixation to know the truth or get to the bottom of something!
