October skyward trends indicate markets look choppy and overall more bearish than bullish. It will likely be an intense eclipse season for everyone. Both the solar and lunar eclipses are in signs ruled by planet Venus. This suggests money, love and relationships will be emphasized in dynamic focus.
Uranus remains stationed at 22° Taurus - Charubel's degree of collapse - until October 21, 2023. Note that markets may turn volatile or negative when this degree is aligned with another planet by conjunction, square or opposition. As explained in prior 2022 forecasts, there was a bear market wave precisely when Saturn was square the North Node at 22° Taurus from April 3 to June 18, 2022. I talk about this and much more in my recent Kepler College webinar now posted on their YouTube Channel:
For the above calendar, here are my "Investor Mood Indicators" (IMI):
green = bullish
red = bearish
lavender = volatile
black = indecision, confusion
yellow = energy shift
navy = power trading
Key dates to watch (all dates based on Eastern Time):
October 2-4, 2023
Mars conjoins the South Node. The past catches up with our current actions as student loans repayments return. Mercury may result in tricky trades while opposite Neptune yet in smooth flow to Pluto before entering Libra.
October 8-12, 2023
Mars squares Pluto on Sunday although this power struggle influence will be felt up to 5 days before the exact alignment. Venus enters Virgo for more practical and critical attitudes concerning money and love. We’ll feel even more serious as Venus opposes Saturn early on the 10th just before Pluto turns direct indicating a huge and transformative shift. In addition, the Sun opposite Chiron infers big inflation news. Mars enters Scorpio by the 12th signaling less imbalance and more determined actions in all life areas.
October 14, 2023
Balance is desired as the Solar Eclipse in Libra conjunct Mercury and oppose Chiron. The 50-year inflationary cycle is highlighted.
October 19-23, 2023
Heightened egos along with frenzied messages and markets are likely as the Sun conjoins Mercury and both square Pluto. If we’re lucky a coinciding trine between Venus and Jupiter will help expand wealth and love. Mercury and the Sun also enter Scorpio in trine to Saturn for no-nonsense deep thinking to focus on fortifying structures.
October 28-29, 2023
A Lunar Eclipse in Taurus coincides with a rare Mercury conjunct Mars in Scorpio opposite Jupiter in Taurus. Volatile emotions and seesaw markets are quite likely now. Taurus represents money and love so aim for stability. Eclipse energies can last a while and can launch us to new levels if we ride the energy wisely.
October 31, 2023
Venus makes a trine to Uranus implying surprises and explosive action in banking and/or tech. Coincidentally the Fed meets today and November 1st. It’s too soon to tell if another interest rate increase awaits us. Skyward trends suggest a 50/50 chance. As I’ve noted before, people (in this case the free will decisions of the Federal Reserve Board) are always the variable.
