The Septile Circular: October 2020

October's 7th harmonic weather lightens a little from September. We aren't getting bombarded with super-heavy days as we otherwise have been all summer. But the respite we had from outer planet-to-outer planet aspects is over.

Before we get to heavy hitters, let's review the month ahead.

With the outer planets being in rough 7H relationship to one another, the Sun and other quick-movers will end up contacting them all in quick measure now. The Sun, who already contacted Jupiter in September, will make short work of Pluto on the 2nd, then Saturn, Uranus and Neptune on the 5th through 7th. Expect messages from the deep and the world's shadow coming to light via synchronicity, followed by a few news cycles illustrating the powers at work and the beyond-human-limits overwhelm they inspire. Uranus and Neptune might also be good days for outer space news.

Venus and Mars have a dance this month. First they take a spin with Juno and Ceres on the 17th, meet in the middle for a pas de deux on the 22nd, then switch final partners on the 23rd and 28th. Expect to trace themes of love, sex, commitment and what genuinely nurtures you the second half of this month - but not as warm-and-fuzzy as that may sound. Venus in fall, ruled by Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, gets no love from Juno or Mars in Mars-ruled signs this month, and Mercury/Juno in Scorpio echoes themes of Venus' next-to-last retrograde and last year when Mars (painfully) moved through the sign. With the separating Mars-Pluto square, the Scorpio placements will resonate (like a struck gong) further still. Plus Ceres in Aquarius suggests nurturance may be limited to what social media has to offer.

Examine what began anew in October/November 2018: what shifts did you make, both gains and losses, in light of harsh reality? What details have you occulted from yourself until now that demand a warrior's courage and an accountant's red pen? Will there be an outcome from the Mars-Pluto square which demands frank talk? It's the messy relational stuff we'd all rather gloss over - but consider the messages and energy at this time support that activity. 11 days, then the energy dissipates, ending on a note of reevaulated will to or not to commit.

But while these non-lunar aspects are intense, pencil-in an expected lull the 13th (or the 12th for the Americas) through the 16th from more overt synchronicities. This near-full-week gap imbues the skies only with subtle Moon-to-planet septiles. Keep an eye on the #SeptilePing's though: you may well find yourself experiencing synchronicities or literally speaking in the manner proscribed by the planet involved. You may not miss the septiles while other intense harmonics get their due, but the days may feel a little more flat.

Luna has also settled down in that she no longer has heavy days where she'll drop 9 or more consecutive aspects in combination with other planetary septiles. Hot days are the 8th, 11th and 18th with 7 aspects each (time zones may vary), but there's less static to be expected. It may be a good period to buckle down and focus, as the skies allow.

But now, October's aspect of the month is easily the Saturn-Uranus waning biseptile, the 5th and last in this synodic cycle, which extends all the way back to the conjunction from October 1988 and the era of perestroika. The biseptile perfects the 27th and 28th, but to note only this detail would do a disservice to the larger picture. At the same time the Uranus-Neptune septile will remain in-orb, if but petering out. On the 27th this aspect slips outside 1° orb, but it's not like these planets are going anywhere fast - and the Saturn-Uranus aspect encourages a bit of leeway in consideration. Also concurrently, the last Saturn-Neptune waning septile comes into orb starting on the 28th, for the strongest day of outer planet 7th harmonic activity of all 2020. In all, October is the month where the Cataract Eye re-emerges into view. The temperature will be rising and will be most intense October 20th through November 12th.

It's been a long trying year, and these outer planet septiles -- especially from Uranus, Neptune and Pluto -- haven't helped. The pandemic and all other varied crises have asked us to focus on the minute daily duties and details with a whale shark lurking behind us just out of view. The persistent feeling of dread of the unknown seems analogous to these outer planets talking with one another. To feel them properly you'd need to go on a meditation retreat in the desert or mountains - anywhere expansive where the broad sky gives you support and offers the crutch of a physical reality representative of these energies. That can't happen when you have to play teacher, washroom attendant, wartime cook and work from home all-star (and oh the added hours to do a regular day's work...). Or when you're stuck at home, furloughed and doomscrolling. Or when you're compelled to be out in public on the regular trying not to inhale the vaporous anxiety. The tidal wave lurks, and you can feel it but have no wherewithal to treat it consciously, especially because it lasts for so long.


I also want to refer back to the August Septile Circular's look at the rumblings of Three Gorges Dam in the news. The original news emerged with July's overlapping Saturn-Uranus and Saturn-Neptune aspects. Here to the left we have October 27th's next Saturn-Uranus aspect on-top of the Republic of China's chart. Whereas July's transit synastry seemed muddled and messy, October's recurrence has this obvious elegance which makes me wonder: both charts' Saturns, Urani, and Neptunes interweave into septile yods, plus the activation of transit Neptune by the Moon and the North Node tightening a conjunction on-top of natal Uranus adds layers of dynamism. That the 27th into the 28th is the most outer planet septile-heavy day of 2020, and we have this tapestry of **** throughout 2020 that didn't reach this peak....well..?

Given my own light experience in such things, I'm more interested in floating this as an "observe what plays out" for us all. I hope nothing comes of this. We'll have to see what the gods have in store.

Peace, and listen to your intuition!
