There’s a New Moon and Sun in the Dog on October 6th so stay tuned for that episode coming out soon.
Let’s take a look at how this plays out.
On October 6th the same day as the New Dog Moon and Sun, planetoid, Pluto is in opposition as it goes goes forward, in the sign of the Ox. On the same day the monthly, Flying Stars will change -again. These multi-layered shifts create generational impressions on a new grid.
This dynamic will have a wider cultural impact to re-shuffle the deck on all platforms. Popular Players will fall from grace and new faces will take their places. Pluto is small but it’s influence has the added weight to tip the balance in a new direction.
In October the Flying Stars double-up with the Annual Stars lasting until first week of November. Stay tuned to the Zodiac Muse podcast for the October Flying Stars episode coming soon to KittySol.com and the Zodiac Muse.
October 11th Saturn returns from retrograde motion in the Tiger sign. This is going to turn the tide. Saturn is Grandfather time and the task master. Anything related to responsibility and ancestral lines is fortified by the old bones of Saturn. Saturn’s return from retrograde in the Tiger will put humanitarian issues on the front burner.
Yes, Mercury is retrograde again. This time it started on September 27th and it will return to forward motion on October 18th. On the same day the Grand Duke, Jupiter goes forward in the Tiger. This will amplify the usual retrograde effects.
The Dog with Mercury and Tiger with Jupiter are part of the same Zodiac Triad. This cosmic coincidence portends a working group of Power will make progress for humanity. But what Mercury’s Shadow, mean? What is Mercury retrograde?
It simply means the elliptical pathway of Mercury is now bent, behind Earth’s motion. It’s a complex system that happens fairly often but each time it occurs in a different space and time on the cosmic clock; giving way to varied facets in a recurring, loop.
When Mercury is retrograde it’s best known for throwing a wrench in the works and is said to slow things down. You don’t want to start anything new-new in this period but rather wrap up what’s already in progress.
Mercury is the Messenger planet that rules over commerce and communications. The Dog sign represents duty and it’s location on the compass presides over: courts, transportation and travel.
It includes partnerships, security forces, entertainment and long-term assets. When Mercury is retrograde everything tends to feel like it’s going backward. Old business needs to be resolved, things need to be reset, reviewed and redone.
Time on the cosmic clock is measured by degrees. The 12 Zodiac signs of the compass directions, break evenly into 12 parts and each sign equals 30 degrees on the Cosmic Wheel of Time. Earth is a 360 degree, multi-dimensional Orb.
Mercury sits at 25 degrees of the Dog sign on September 27th and will have rolled back to 10 degrees in the Dog sign, when it’s elliptic pathway goes forward on October 18th. Mercury will cross over it’s Shadow to get back to 25 degrees; where it was when it first went retrograde.
The shadow period lasts until November 2nd as it crosses over it’s own cosmic loop. It’s like Mercury déjà vu. You’ll notice we’ve been here before, so-to-speak.
While this can feel like walking over a grave, it can feel daunting but it’s also good since it leads to fresh discoveries. Things lost in darkness can be illuminated more clearly. This “shadow” period features rather unusual planetary motions that hook into each other in a chain reaction.
This chain reaction brings about a Vortex of cosmic events to sweep us into a New Year in 2021. So what can we expect and how will this play out?
Mercury Crosses Mars
On November 10th Mercury catches up to Mars in the Pig sign to come from behind and score a goal to increase benefits for the most vulnerable. In this cosmic event a new set of standards will expose those who have something to hide. A tug-of-war between public rights and personal ideals will clash in this timeline.
Then we get a breath of fresh air as Neptune returns forward motion on December 1st. While Lord of the Underworld, Neptune has been retrograde we have seen deep divisions, and looked down chasms as unforeseen events sunk us farther into a morass of delusions. When Neptune returns forward a veil will be lifted and truth will out.
Holy Cow! Venus Crosses Pluto
On December 19th Venus at 25 degrees in the Ox sign crosses over Pluto at 25 degrees and then reverses drive to goes retrograde in the Ox sign. Venus then crosses back over Pluto. This is a High-Stakes juncture affecting platforms and foundations that will be rocked. Some will crumble.
Venus is the planet of Love, Luck and Luxury. Pluto is a small, rock in-a-hard place, a planetoid that governs Fate. The pebble in the shoe. The fly in the ointment, unexpected consequences coming back. As they say: hold on-to-your-hat! It’s a bumpy ride.
Venus Crosses Mercury – Crossing Pluto
By December 29th Venus is going retrograde in slow motion at 24 degrees with Pluto at 25 degrees in the Ox as Mercury crosses over a Retro Venus and then crosses-over Pluto. All this cosmic action happens within 1 degree on the chart that leaves and indelible mark. Something must be written-off.
Mercury will go retrograde on January 14th, 2022 with a backward elliptic into the Ox, then goes forward on February 3rd. Rolling back over Pluto, Mercury is present to officiate a love tryst in the stars, singular to none.
Forever Love: Mars Meets Venus | 2022
This cauldron of motion stirs the cosmic soup to create a very unique pattern fusing a connection between cosmic lovers, Mars and Venus. This future event is put in motion when when Mercury goes retrograde on September 27th, 2021.
It all leads down the aisle on Valentine’s Day February 14th, 2022 as Earth’s most famous celestial couple light up the galaxy. It’s not common for these two celestial bodies to meet up, but when Venus and Mars conjoin in the sign of the Ox at 15 degrees it’s a marriage made in Heaven. A holiday for love that can last forever.
