There may be an otherworldly feel or quality to the day as hopeful Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, forms a sextile, for the third and final time this year, to idealistic Neptune (at 3:06 am) the planet of our dreams and imagination. (The other dates were February 20th and July 27th). This more inspirational type of energy can motivate us to reach for the ever-twinkling stars, and with Jupiter deposited in ambitious, pragmatic Capricorn, there’s a real possibility that we’ll be able to lasso in whatever it is we’re seeking, especially if we are disciplined and remained focused on elements of the bigger picture and perhaps what’s at stake.
This may also be a good time to become involved with projects pertaining to art, music, photography, and dance, as well as for engaging in charitable or humanitarian activities. Our nocturnal dreams may also be very vivid and meaningful for us now, so we may want to pay closer attention to them and write them down.
Mercury in probing Scorpio – which will be stationing retrograde tomorrow – is also sextile to accomodating Venus in organized Virgo (at 12:39 pm), an aspect that can naturally turn our thoughts to matters such as love and friendship. It may also make us more amenable or predisposed to evaluating our relationships as well as possibly discussing taking a relationship to the next level. Too, the waning Moon is in Leo, the sign of romance!
“And he took her in his arms and kissed her under the sunlit sky, and he cared not that they stood high upon the walls in the sight of many.” – J.R.R Tolkien
Overall, with communicator Mercury and harmonizer Venus in positive alignment, it should hopefully be easier for us to work collaboratively with each other now, or to at least find a few points of common agreement. Today’s Jupiter-Neptune influence may also beneficially assist us here as it, ideally, can incline us to be more principled or philosophically-minded, or less personally reactive. That said, with Mercury in very intense Scorpio, there is always, of course, still a possibility that some conversations could become very animated or overheated as we go about making our beliefs and ideologies (Jupiter) known while simultaneously investigating or weighing the facts of matters (thinking expressly here, of the start of Monday’s Supreme Court nomination hearing in the U.S. Senate!).

Tarot Card For The Day: The Six of Wands. This card graphically depicts a celebrated victor on horseback in the Rider Deck. It can also inspire acting upon our convictions or ideals which, in turn, can help draw support from others.
On This Day in History: On October 12, 1901, U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt renames the Executive Mansion as “The White House.” Since nearly every U.S. state had an “executive mansion” for its governor, President Roosevelt believed the name “White House” would distinguish it as the official residence of the President of the United States. (whitehousehistory.org)
Astrologically, that day, there was a New Moon in beautifying Libra, which can naturally place more of an emphasis on such things as form, style, and decorum. This New Moon was also exactly trine to transformational Pluto, which was deposited in the communicative sign of Gemini, ruling words, phrases, and grammar. The ruler of the New Moon, elegant Venus, was also exactly conjunct energetic Mars, in refurbishing Scorpio.
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
