Big Picture Astrology mid-October 2022

With the previous Full Moon in Pisces on September 10, 2022 we had the announcement of the Queen’s death. Now with this Full Moon in Aries on October 9, 2022 with the Moon passing by Jupiter in Aries, we’re hearing all about world war, just as suspected. Of course, we also have Mars in Gemini so we have another sign that talk of warring actions is in the air with leaders/misleaders.

Mercury direct enters Libra again on October 10, 2022 and will stand across from Jupiter in Aries this week, indicating more minds focused on global escalating tensions with big talk in the media.

Mercury will finally finish off the shadow phase of the Mercury Retrograde cycle this week on October 16, 2022 that started August 20, 2022. After Mercury has gone Retrograde in Libra and Virgo in September, more people that couldn’t see through what has been going on, are now waking up and realizing the misinformation and deceptions that have been plaguing the minds of humanity with reversals of opinion on health especially noticeable. More people will be looking for truth and justice going forward.

Humanity has been witnessing and experiencing so much destruction and transformation associated with the the political business world with Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn stationed Direct in Capricorn on October 8, 2022 and is now getting closer to the 3rd and final conjunction of the Pluto Return of America coming up on December 31, 2022.

Of course, with Uranus and the Destiny Point in Taurus we see energy and the environment, the economy, digital ID and bio-technology at the forefront pushing the collective toward the heavily controlled future Saturn in Aquarius represents.


This week, the Sun in Libra connects with Saturn in Aquarius October 11, 2022 9:06 pm ET. This brings awareness to the systematic structure being created by authority figures that overlays our social world and the collective consciousness, and restrictions on individuals via peer pressure and group-think. The push for electronic, digital surveillance and control has been strongly emphasized since Saturn entered Aquarius in March 2020. Restrictions on social networks and information by authority via censorship has been off the charts. People should be able to recognize the truth of what’s going on with the Sun in Libra putting a spotlight on the balance of power and truth now.

Mars in Gemini is in a difficult aspect to Neptune in Pisces October 12, 2022 1:46 am ET. We are reminded that taking actions before you think about it should be avoided. We can expect leaders to make rash decisions out of ego and anger without consideration of the broader, long term consequences. Thoughts, words, and actions based on delusions, illusions, and fantasy are likely now. With all the talk of war, we are reminded that deception, lies and secrets are a huge part of what’s going on in the world.

For people that are spiritual and believe in the power of prayer, the aggressive thoughts, words, beliefs and actions of people can be challenging, but also motivating.

Mercury in Libra is opposite Jupiter in Aries October 12, 2022 3:23 am ET. To counter the extremes and imbalances of what people think and believe, it would be most wise for people to prioritize the truth and to focus on solutions in relationships. Talk of balance of power in the world, and of course the value of money is tipping the scales. Mercury in Libra has people asking, “where is the truth and justice?”

Venus in Libra connects with Saturn in fellow air sign Aquarius October 14, 2022 2:20 am ET. Building confidence and trust in relationships requires time and effort. Restrictions and challenges in our social world reminds us of how significant our relationships are with those that matter most. Love is the answer to what’s going on in the world.
