Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
The biggest problem with the new moon October 16 will be the hard aspect that both Saturn and Pluto will precisely square (challenge) the new moon and Sun. The Sun square Saturn is like fire meeting ice. It can bring a feeling of being overwhelmed, and worse, if anyone criticizes you, you might feel completely crushed. Pluto square the Sun and new moon could bring a pushy, domineering person who will pressure you to give him his way and won’t be open to listening to anything you have to say. This person could be anyone of authority in your life, but this person would likely have a certain amount of influence in your life. You may have to placate this person, without giving in completely.
It concerns me that the aggressiveness of Mars in Aries to Saturn and Pluto in your sixth house of work projects at the new moon October 16 will cause difficulties in the workplace. Subordinates may forget they aren’t the boss and act like they’re in charge. That’s outrageous, but it could happen—a person who reports to you could forget that it’s not wise to bite the hand that feeds. If it is not that, it could be that a project is about to go off the rails, and it will fall to you to correct things.
The sixth house not only covers work projects but also reflects the state of your health (the first house is the house of vitality and strength, the sixth house, so lit up here, is the house of preventative measures you use to stay healthy). This month, you must be careful not to give into COVID fatigue and let down your guard.
I see a second wave of the coronavirus beginning this month and raging by the time Jupiter and Pluto meet on November 12. Both Jupiter and Pluto have been retrograde, but Jupiter went direct on September 12, and Pluto will go direct October 4. This means they both will be strong and rested, suggesting a ferocious second wave. Where will that be? That’s up to you. Make sure you don’t let up mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing.
