Fasten Your Seatbelts; The Universe is Taking Us for a Ride

2 Full Moons, 1 New Moon, 5 Planets in Retrograde and 3 Planets in Conjunction

When I tell you the planets are busy, they are BUSY! October has been cutting up with all the moon cycles, retrograde planets, and conjunctions happening within 31 days. There are so many good and not so great things that will happen with all of this going on and I will break them down for you as well as give some tips on what to do and affirmations to focus on during each period. Fasten your seatbelts; the universe is taking us for a ride – but I got you!

Warning: This is going to be a long read so brace yourself (or just scroll through to the sections that resonate with you).

New Moon in Libra – October 16, 2020

Let’s start here since this is today: The New Moon in Libra will bring out some SERIOUS creative energy. Have you noticed yourself being a little more energized today? Creative juices flowing? Just being a little more free and go with the flow? You can thank this upcoming moon in Libra for that. This Libra energy is great for some deep manifestations – which new moons are known for. Libra is all about balance and love and the sun and moon both are in Libra right now so the feeling of peace and harmony is very strong. For this new moon, let’s manifest some self love, balance, and abundance. Trust me, we will need it and I will explain why when we get to these other planets going haywire and what they mean.

New Moon in Libra Affirmations

  • I am powerful and divinely protected. The love I have for myself supercedes my love for others.
  • What is meant for me always finds me. I only accept energies that are for my greater good.
  • I receive infinite abundance daily.

Write these down and use them whenever you feel led to – but especially this weekend. The last one is my favorite and has truly brought me abundance daily when scripted (55×5 method).

Neptune, Chiron, Uranus, Mars, and Mecury are all in Retrograde RIGHT NOW

Man, man, man…where do I start? Let’s start with what has changed recently because most of these planets have been in retrograde before October so none of the energy is new; but it could be affecting other energies that are just entering the spectrum. Let’s get into it.

Mercury Retrograde: October 13 – November 3, 2020

This is the last retrograde of the year (to start) and it will visit 2 signs while in retrograde (Scorpio and Libra). Mercury is the planet that rules communication and the planet Gemini so the following signs can expect to be affected the most – Gemini, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio. From October 13-26, it will be in the sign of Scorpio and will challenge us to heal from deep within. Try to do some shadow work and clean up any old messes from the past so you can return fresh and new (look for the black rooster). From October 27-November 3, it will be in Libra which is great for open communication, repairing relationships of all kinds, and balancing your work and home life. Again, Mercury rules communication so in Scorpio, speak within, and in Libra, speak out.

Mars Retrograde: September 9 – November 13, 2020

Mars rules the sign Aries and is in Aries the ENTIRE time it is in retrograde so you know what that means…

But seriously, this retrograde will bring some serious energy of wanting to be aggresive, impulsive, and extremely self-centered. Try your best to stay calm here. Breathe slow and think fast. Do not react impusively – take your time (at least until November 13). Aries will be most impacted during this time with this energy so if you have any Aries people in your life that are cutting up just a little too much, give them a slight pass – they can’t help it.

Neptune Retrograde: June 23 – November 28, 2020

Neptune rules the subconscious mind as well as the sign Pisces; and again, its in its ruling sign (like Mars and Aries) so Pisces can expect to have the strongest impact. Channel that Pisces energy and work on your connection with the Universe and all it’s powers. It’s a good idea to work with your subconscious while doing your shadow work while Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio. Take advantage of the time you have with this heavy Neptune energy and enjoy the ride within.

Chiron Retrograde: July 11 – December 15, 2020

Transparent moment – I am not at all familiar with this planet or its impacts so I had to do some research. Here is what I found: Chiron controls wounds and healing and is great for spiritual growth. It is currently in Aries so this is the sign it will impact the most. The theme here with the retrograde planets seems to be inner work and spiritual growth.

Uranus Retrograde: August 15 – January 14, 2021

The signs most impacted during this retrograde are Taurus and Aquarius. Uranus is the planet of change and you can expect the opposite during the retrograde so look for wanting more change to happen but it simply not happening. Expect some time to just breathe because you will need it with all the other impacts happening at the same time.

Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter ALL IN CAPRICORN:

These planets are no longer in retrograde but they are all in conjunction in Capricorn which can also have an impact on us. The good thing is this big Capricorn energy brings out a sense of responsibility since these planets govern rules, structure, governments, and authorities. Have you been feeling like your inner leader has been trying to shine? Like you have more confidence than usual? You can thank all this planet work for that. Embrace it, Capricorn energy can be magical.

Blue Moon/Full Moon on Halloween: October 31, 2020

This is the second full moon of October making this upcoming full moon a Blue Moon. This Blue Moon will reign supreme in Taurus so you know what that means – more grounding energy but also stubborn and lazy energy too. Now we know Uranus is also in Taurus at the same time which means change is inevitable during this time. Release some old, stale energy – whether that is friends, jobs, family, whatever it may be. Make room for the things you will accept in your life from the last new moon. Here are some affirmations you can embrace for the Blue Moon:

  • I release all things and people that do not serve me. If it is not for my higher good, it does not have a place in my life.
  • I am a person of wisdom and discernment. My intuition guides me in the right direction at all times.
  • My purpose is clear and all hurdles are dimished. What I need, I have.
