Current week's astrological overview

Astrological Overview: October 25 - 31, 2021

Astrologer Pam Younghans writes this weekly astrological journal based on planetary influences, and offers perspectives and insights to assist you in making the best use of current energies. This column is not intended as prediction. Your own experience will be more specifically defined by transits to your personal chart.

Aspects of Note this Week:

All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. (For Eastern Time, add 3 hours; For Greenwich Mean Time, add 7 hours.)

TUE: Venus square Neptune
THU: Venus semisquare Saturn, Venus sextile Jupiter, Sun sesquiquadrate Neptune
SAT: Venus trine Eris, Sun square Saturn, Mars enters Scorpio, Mercury quincunx Neptune
SUN: Mercury trine Jupiter


STILL BREATHLESS and a bit wobbly-legged from the steep climb that has been the month of October, we now pause to assess our current position and also observe what lies ahead. We are still engaged in "the final ascent" for the next two months, but to offset the challenges of the continued climb, we will be seeing some incredible vistas.

For the most part, planetary events in the rest of 2021 will propel us forward, as compared to tangling our feet in the web of what is falling away. The main exception to this is a stumbling block in the form of the final Saturn-Uranus square that occurs on December 23.

MOST WOULD AGREE that perceived time is moving very quickly these days. Our sense of that variability in the time-space continuum will grow even stronger from now through the end of 2021, driven by some very mind-expanding cosmic events.

Starting with next week's New Moon, we enter eclipse season, a two-month period that usually corresponds with rapid changes, karmic resolution, and an acceleration in spiritual evolution. This upcoming eclipse season includes a Partial Lunar Eclipse on November 19 – but most significantly, it climaxes with a Total Solar Eclipse on December 3 that is conjunct a mysterious and magnetically powerful galactic anomaly called the Great Attractor. Scientific analysis of the GA tells us that it has "relativistic characteristics," and is able to warp time and space and bend light.

AND THAT'S NOT ALL. Acting as an exclamation point, the Full Moon on December 18, which fulfills the intentions of the lunar cycle that started with the Total Solar Eclipse, occurs when the Sun is at the same degree as the Galactic Center. The GC is said to activate a "psychic defrag process" and then a download of Divine Insight.

All of this adds up to humanity being on a very fast evolutionary track over the next two months! I will, of course, be writing more about these events and what they mean in the weeks ahead -- but for now, I wanted to provide a bit of an overview of the landscape we'll be moving through next.

THIS WEEK, the aspects list is relatively short and there are three days when no major aspects are exact. The solar system seems to be giving us a chance to process where we've been and also to repack our gear for the next part of the ascent.

Here is my list of this week's most important planetary aspects and my brief interpretation of each:

No major aspects are exact today.
Venus square Neptune: Some confusion or disillusionment in the areas of relationship or finances is possible. We may be drawn to invest our hearts or monies in something that may not live up to its perceived value.
No major aspects are exact today.
Venus semisquare Saturn and sextile Jupiter: Minor setbacks in relationship or finances are balanced out by a renewed hope in the future potentials.
Sun sesquiquadrate Neptune: A truth or realization that surfaces may cause confusion as we question our beliefs and the path we have chosen. 
No major aspects are exact today.
Venus trine Eris: We feel energized to actively pursue our heart's desires and are impatient with any interference.
Sun square Saturn: Delays in the journey require us to reassess our longer-term goals and perhaps rethink a planned course of action. 
Mars enters Scorpio: With Mars in the eighth sign from October 30 to December 13, deep emotions urge us into action for the next six weeks. The drive to pursue and achieve desires is strong and it can be harder to rein in feelings and opinions. Willfulness and courage help us directly confront difficult situations, but we will need to be careful, since Scorpio is a fixed sign and as such can lack flexibility. The need to control outer circumstances could undermine the ability to receive and follow guidance. 
Mercury quincunx Neptune: The mind is a bit foggy, making it a better day for imaginings and dreaming than for concrete planning or decision making.
Mercury trine Jupiter: Thinking is quite optimistic with this aspect, and there's a strong draw to socialize with those of like mind. This could also be a great day for receiving, writing, and communicating new insights.


IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: The deep courage and tenacity that come with being a Scorpio are heightened for you this year, leading you down surprising new roads and into unexpected situations. Along the way, you will be reinventing your self-concept and also refining your longer-term goals. Lessons this year involve being very conscious of your energy and how it affects others. As you learn to manage and direct your emotions with intention and integrity, you can accomplish a great deal. (Solar Return Sun semisquare Venus, conjunct Mars, square Saturn, opposite Uranus)
