♠️ New Moon in #libra - An iron fist in a velvet glove
♠️ The New Moon in Libra (22:12 h) brings us closer to a personal or professional ideal and restores a balance that we thought was lost in important relationships. Fair co-operation is the only way to get what we seek and diplomacy becomes second nature when we sit down at the negotiating table. The sextile with Saturn in #sagittarius seals contracts, marriages and agreements and gives us a sense of stability and trust in what shall come.
♠️ Most affected by the New Moon will be the women because they will have a decision to take or an answer to give. The best time for the final resolution will be after October 28th, when Venus will make a sextile with Saturn, and regardless of the turn of events, we will feel that we have made the right choice.
♠️ On October 22nd Mars, the ruler of the men, also ingresses in Libra, agitating the spirits and pouring gas on the fire where only the spark is missing. We will all find ourselves at the mercy of the goddess Aphrodite-Venus that will bring us together and inspire us to observe the beauty, manners and elegance of the other.
♠️ Beginning with October 23rd the Sun, the other ruler of males, ingresses in #scorpio and we will begin to realize that flirting and courting have a precise and hidden purpose, namely to seduce, fascinate and subjugate. The archetype of the Old Wise Man-Jupiter will activate itself and we will find ourselves in states aimed at either healing and releasing, or suffering and chaining. Sexual fantasies and dreams indicate the constellation of erotic and power complexes whose understanding, acceptance and integration will lead to emotional and psychological regeneration and to a new sense of personal power.

♠️ Mercury in #scorpio - Traveling on the Land of Hades
♠️ Astrologically, Mercury, the planet that governs intelligence, imagination, communication, contracts, occult studies, and trade, enters tomorrow in Scorpio, the sign of secrets, obsessive curiosity and taboos. Until November 5th, we will dig deep into our personal memory and we will pull out successively the repressed, suppressed and negated memories underlying the current pattern of thinking.
♠️ Mythologically, Mercury is Hermes, the messenger of the gods, who messes up their plans and laughs at them. In Scorpio, Mercury is the guide of souls in the realm of Hades, the god of the underworld, and the mediator between visible and invisible. If we have the courage to follow him, he leads us to the meeting place with the ancestral souls, with parts of us that we thought were dead and the remnants of long gone lives.
♠️ Archetypally, Mercury is the Divine Child, the creative and playful potential in its positive side, destructive and sadistic in the negative one, the fruit of our soul and the test stone. The benevolent aspect is charged with original ideas, clear thinking and convincing expression, and at the opposite end we watch how the projects are turned over, the messages lead to big misunderstandings and our mind gets blurred exactly at the moments when we most need it.
♠️ Alchemycally, Mercury represents the phase of fermentation in which thoughts, ideas, and cognitive patterns are decomposed, and a new mentality is born from the rotten mixture of agonizing preoccupations, sexual fantasies, erotic and power complexes, capable of accepting the dark nature of man. "Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another." - Homer

♠️ Venus in #libra - Perfect image
♠️ Astrologically Venus, the lesser benefic, ingresses on October 14th at 13:12 in the sign of her diurnal domicile, Libra, where she will stay until November 7th. Venus governs women, physical beauty, charm and partnerships. This period marks a significant change in important relationships, social and love, a change that will lead to a rebalancing of these after the last few weeks have been characterized by the weakened position of female energy relative to that of men.
♠️ Mythologically Venus is Aphrodite, the goddess of love and sensuality, mistress of Mars-Ares-Animus and wife of Hephaestus, the hideous god of fire, metals and craftsmen. In her transit through Libra, Venus regains her lost morality and self-confidence that make her very attractive to the opposite sex and turn her into a devoted wife / partner, a steady friend and a delightful muse.
♠️ Archetypally Venus is Anima, the feminine side of the psyche, the one that mediates between the exterior and the interior, between Me and You. The characteristic ambivalence will be manifested by indecision, vanity and respect for a contract / marriage out of fear of being judged and criticized, lowered from her perfect pedestal. The creative ones, the artists and those who are inspired by the magical world of art will receive extra mental energy that will lead them to a new stage of their task of embellishing the world.
♠️ Alchemically Venus represents the conjunction phase, the union of the masculine and feminine within man, and the use of sexual energy for personal transformation. Controlling and directing the natural mating impulses leads to an inner state of unification of opposites and an external state of equilibrium with respect to the other. Thus love and hatred, peace and war, the attraction and rejection underlying any friendship, business or love relationship, merge into the depth of personal unconsciousness and form a new pattern of relating.
♠️ Venus, Matteo Arfetti
