strology for October 2020
Note for October: October will be an extra special month this year. A spooky Mercury Retrograde starts on October 13th (which also just happens to be mah birthday!) and the month opens and closes with Full Moons making the second Full Moon (on Halloween no less!) a Blue Moon. A couple of square with the Sun make things tricky but a sweet Jupiter Venus trine smooths things out. It is a balance of tricks and treats and an excellent time to remember to care for our Ancestors!
