On Saturday, October 1st, a waxing crescent Moon opposes Mars under Sagittarius and Gemini, respectively. This celestial mash-up suggests a need for challenging action. Will the fiery energy of Mars and Sag overpower the gusts of airy Gemini or the watery swells of the Moon? The answer might lie in the Sun, which sits under Libra opposite Chiron. Chiron governs vulnerability and the act of turning pain into power.
How will this transformation take place in your sign?
There’s no route directly through this emotional impasse, Aries. To work around this dilemma, you must be willing to try new things or adopt a different perspective. You can’t out-stubborn this, so you might as well stop trying.
When someone shows you who they truly are, why don’t you listen to them? It’s unfair to everyone to assume that you will be able to change their mind. That isn’t your responsibility, nor is it theirs to bend to your will.
The intentions behind our words matter, Gemini. As much as you would like to have everyone like you, that’s just not realistic. Accountability, when done correctly, is not disrespectful. In fact, it can be a necessary act of love.
It’s easy to let the adrenaline rush of motivation froth into a rage when things don’t go according to plan. You’re in a heightened emotional state with your eyes on the prize. However, the stars suggest trying to keep it cool today.
You can turn this situation around if you can manage to remain level-headed. People naturally look to you for guidance. Your responsibility is to find a way to lead without shoving and motivate without belittling.
The stars suggest some potential bumps further up the road. Luckily, if you anticipate these setbacks, then it’s easier to remain calm once they’re here. Don’t act too hastily; try to go with the flow as best you can.
Pain can fuel our ego or hearts—ultimately, the choice is ours to make. Do you use this as a reason to shut other people out? Or do you use this as an opportunity to expand your empathy? The stars suggest the latter.
When we become accustomed to feeling negative emotions, anything positive can start to feel inherently uncomfortable. We then confuse this discomfort with a bad sign. But this change is nothing to fear, Scorpio. Keep forging ahead on this kinder path.
Relationships are never a solo effort, Sag. While you might be hyper-focused on what you consider the “prize,” don’t forget that there is someone else running this race with you—not against you. It isn’t a competition; it’s a collaboration.
The universe is offering yet another chance to practice setting boundaries, Cap. Will you actually take it this time? The momentary discomfort of standing up for yourself is well worth the gratification that respect brings.
Gatekeepers are usually the ones most afraid of not belonging on the other side of it. Keep this in mind as you approach these types of individuals in your life. Moreover, make sure to check if it’s your own hand holding the gate shut.
Because you are keenly attuned to the environment, you feel the seasonal shifts more deeply than others. As our minds and bodies prepare for the colder months ahead, take time to do that which nurtures your soul.
