Weekly Astrology Forecast – October 17 – 23, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – Powerful shifts are signalled by the meeting between the Sun and Venus on October 22. I talked about this in my October forecast and included images which helps to explain how important this cycle is. Here’s the link – the discussion begins at 20:42mins.

Essentially, the successive meetings of Venus and the Sun form a pentagram shape in the chart, a magical, protective symbol sacred to modern witches and seen as a repeating motif in many cultures as well as in nature. There is something organic about it, as if a representation of creation itself. Although the conjunctions between the Sun and Venus repeat in similar places over an 8-year cycle, they slowly shift backwards through the signs. For the past 143 years, one arm of the pentagram’s conjunctions has been in Scorpio but now, this year, the Sun-Venus conjunction moves to Libra – 29 Libra to be exact. Of course, as an anaretic degree, it suggests that issues regarding harmony, partnership, alliances and peace are critical!

As above so below!

As a new cycle begins in the skies, a new cycle begins down here on Earth too. As Venus sits on the throne of the Sun, she blazes brightly from her own sign. Home at last, Venus is at her greatest strength, and she illuminates where we are out of alignment, where ego has got in the way of the heart. If we consider Pluto moving to Aquarius, Uranus and Sedna moving to Gemini, along with the last Great Conjunction (Jupiter-Saturn) in Aquarius, we can clearly see how the element of air, with all its focus on intellectual clarity and debate, is going to be of huge importance moving forwards.
