September & October 2017 Monthly Forecast
Did October begin in August?
It’s halfway through October, but here I am thinking back to mid-to-late August, as the energies of the 22 Aug Total Solar Eclipse are still active. Uranus got itself involved with the eclipse and has been intensively distributing the eclipse energies ever since. Jupiter got involved too plus changed into Scorpio on 10 October, a big new vibe for the next 12 months.
So how was mid-to-end August for you and the time since then? Did you notice any deep decisions or turning points within yourself or major life experiences still unfolding now? Eclipses bring different perspectives, sometimes with a wham between the eyes, and halt you in your tracks for a review – which is what happened to me through the onset of a dreadful virus! They can bring positive change too, including destiny highpoints.
Destiny points still active
Whether your destiny points felt high or low, throughout September Uranus kept impelling personal evolution by continuing to fire up the eclipse vibes. This might even have felt more like the eclipse than the eclipse itself with radical exciting or nerve-wracking insights and/or actions ever since. Uranus continues to prompt us to find innovative solutions this October to circumstances that might not yet have settled.
Jupiter’s influence is just as powerful. Jupiter is in strong opposition with Uranus right now, plus is finding its feet in Scorpio where it will stay from 10 October 2017 to 8 November 2018. That might seem a long while, but make the most of Jupiter in Scorpio as this planet won’t be back in this transformative zodiac sign for another 12 years!
The Jupiter-Uranus effect – Dynamic!
As for Jupiter and Uranus, they first clicked into an opposition late last year until Easter, and right now their dynamic is intense again while completing their third and final alignment with a strong influence from late August until the end of October (exact 28 Sept).
The intensity of this alignment was first felt from late November 2016 to end April 2017, five months of back-to-back Jupiter to Uranus adrenalin where pushing through innovations brought either advancement or stretched things too far.
If you’ve felt as if firecrackers have been going off in your life, either the sustained high of feeling life is one joyful firework spectacular to the next, or the sustained stress of feeling jolted and out of resonance with your environment and surroundings, then this might be the Jupiter-Uranus effect.
Integrating the bizarre and weird
Jupiter and Uranus together can bring a run of weird or bizarre experiences, so much so viewpoints and values might feel turned on their head. If you feel you’ve been through a spate of outlandish experiences as if aliens took you off to their planet and now you’ve landed back on home soil, October helps with finding meaning and integration.
The key is to persist with seeing and processing different information or perspectives to find points of connection and agreement while also allowing the oddity, wonder, insights or right-to-exist of disagreement or strangeness. It’s a case of thinking through different lenses without outright rejecting the perspectives of others or quickly agreeing, or sticking too rigidly to your own point of view, until all points of view settle.
The speed of light…
Did anything move so rapidly in your life earlier in the year you’re now finding yourself reflecting on what happened and doing your best to juggle and integrate? Did anything get overlooked or even thrown out during the five intensive months of Jupiter to Uranus that you’re now trying to understand?
Jupiter and Uranus together create speed – bullet-train, supersonic-jet type speed. This month and into November you can push through innovations and rapidly learn something new to forge fast-track growth. If you’re feeling in flow and on-track with integration, this power-packed time could help take you to the next level.
Jupiter-Uranus – 21st-century bodies
Since late last year how has technology been for you? Many people’s bodies are able to do fast adjustments and seem to even be thriving, but not so for many others, so if you feel your health is lagging, it might be worth considering if rapid-growth technology is part of the equation.
I have a physical allergy to Wi-Fi and Smart technology, and have been on quite a health journey with this for years due to underlying lifelong sensitivities to environmental toxins. Despite recently having built a bit more tolerance to Smart technology, it wasn’t enough to keep my system solid against an intense virus in September. This month the Jupiter-Uranus innovation burst is helping me look at health and technology from as many multi-perspectives as possible.
Jupiter in Scorpio – Love, passion and energy
When Jupiter went into Scorpio in 10 October, it started bringing in a level of emotional input that has been missing over the past 12 months during the Jupiter-Uranus effect, which was almost purely progress and achievement focussed. Yet now there’s a pull to travel deeper into heart and soul with personal creative dreams or intimacy with loved ones.
Scorpio is an intensive, focussed zodiac sign that can bring on superhuman levels of stamina to help materialise the life of your dreams, but some emotional stagnation might need clearing first. Clear that and feel an inner alchemy into living more fully especially with Jupiter, planet of adventure, excitement and evolution, moving mountains in Scorpio.
Jupiter in Scorpio – Mysteries solved
If you need to solve a mystery in your life, Jupiter in Scorpio will help you get to the bottom of it. If the mystery has been around for the past 12 years when Jupiter was last in Scorpio, work through any emotions that first rise up and keep reaching for the new perspectives, research, methods and opportunities that Jupiter brings. While Jupiter is in the zodiac sign of the detective, your missing pieces can come together to help you push forward and thrive, both emotionally and practically, in any life areas that previously have felt bruised, wounded or stuck.
Jupiter sparks the motivation, fire and adventure to put in the effort, while Scorpio creates a craving to transform heart, soul and emotional fulfilment. This is such a rich adventure it’s worth getting started soon with listening to your emotional stirrings – knowing Jupiter’s speed influence, the 12 months will fly by in the blink of an eye!
