Pluto Stations Direct – October 2023
We continue to move through the wormhole (a short distance between different realities) in the week preceding the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse in Libra, coming on Oct 14. We are also in the Pluto Station, a transformational week that can test your nervous system, beliefs and determination, as Pluto activates power dynamics while completing the U.S. Pluto Return.
Oct 6 – Venus quincunx Pluto. This doesn’t last long but can be uncomfortable. It can create an obsessive need for attention, $$, your desires may be in overdrive or it can trigger compulsive attractions, jealousy or control. As always with Pluto, the potential for healing is always there if you are willing to do the work, so if something comes up, get help to seek your breakthrough. You can get free and change your life.
Oct 8 – Mars square Pluto. Pluto is at maximum strength while Stationing and squaring touchy Mars, it may be alternately pressuring or confronting you with turbulent feelings or issues you want to avoid, creating a combustible energy. If you can make these planets work together for you, you can move mountains and accomplish great tasks. If anger is triggered, focus on your needs and what is missing – that’s the direction to go in for healing. There is information available in any pain you experience and I hope you use it for your growth and healing.
Whatever is being revealed to you by Pluto is for your Highest Good, whether you understand it now or not. There is perfection in your path – and you came to be here with your life unfolding this way at this time, so trust that you will be shown where to go and what to do as the weeks and months unfold in the coming year. Pluto will be leaving Capricorn to move into Aquarius for good on Nov 19, 2024.
Later on Oct 8, Venus enters Virgo. After being in Leo since June 5 and being Retrograde from July 27-Sep 3, it’s a big shift for the planet of love and values to go from Self-centered, creative Leo into humble, service-oriented Virgo for the next month. The Venus Retrograde reoriented values for many and now you can recreate your relationships in ways that are more supportive for you.
Venus in Virgo focuses on practical details, being in service to their partner as an expression of love. Also, Venus in Virgo is more conservative with $$, Venus in Virgo artists are great craftsmen/women, more mental and focused (Mercury-ruled), than flamboyant. Venus in Virgo loves a clean, organized home and they are likely health conscious.
Oct 9 – Venus opposition Saturn. It feels like you can’t have what you want right now. Venus is your desires, while Saturn is work, restriction, delays. A Venus-Saturn opposition feels like you have to decide who and what is really important and eliminate superfluous things that you can’t afford or that drain your time or energy in order to have what you want later. This can be a frustration or a feeling of rejection, but because it’s coming on top of the Pluto Station, it’s one more thing that’s not fun.
Oct 10 – Pluto Stations Direct. Pluto turns Direct and moves forward as it continues through the final degrees of Capricorn.
Oct 12 – Nov 25. Mars in Scorpio. This is a home sign for Mars and it can easily express itself here, as Mars in Scorpio will accomplish its goals. It will go after what it wants and get it, one way or the other. Mars in Scorpio is a signature of many super athletes, and it’s also Taylor Swift (to use a chart of someone in the news who makes things happen!).
This brings us to the precipice of the Solar Eclipse on Sat, Oct 14 @ 10:55am PDT. There’s a lot of dynamic energy this week and depending on your chart and planetary placements, it will be either more or less intense for you personally.
Whatever occurs this week is preparing you for the new beginning that is coming the following week as you are being led forward. Pluto is still squaring the North Node in Aries and South Node in Libra, and will be clearing anything that’s blocking you from your Highest Good. Watch the show. This is for you!

As always, I am grateful for your presence on our journey together.
