The next few days will offer up some bumps, but nothing you can't handle.
October 2nd to 3rd features a misleading inconjunct between Venus in Libra and Neptune Rx at 5 degrees Pisces. This is relationship misdirection. Romantic or social projections will be off the the mark, as Neptune confuses Venus' objectives. The attraction that fizzles, or the misinterpreted flirtation. Be very careful what you *think* others want from you. Or, you could be the recipient of someone's misguided projections.
From October 3rd to 4th, things get even stickier with a square from the Sun in Libra to Pluto (at 11 degrees Capricorn) and Mars in Sag to Chiron Rx (at 14 degrees Pisces).
Sun/Pluto will amp up the competition and jealousy. Libra with a Pluto (power) edge can manifest as social manipulation. You could be the target, or the manipulator. When Libra is squared by Pluto in Capricorn, the question is "What status symbol is desired?" This could be a person, a relationship that looks a certain way, or an object (or person as object). Appearance will become very important, even though Pluto is excavating underneath. How people respond to appearances will tell you much about them.
Mars square Chiron (Wounded Healer) suggests the further you reach, the greater the potential for embarrassment or hurt feelings. Actions (Mars) will likely make you or someone else feel awkward, hurt or exposed. But that's ok, because Mars is part of the Grand Fire Trine which outweighs any minor sensitivities. You take a chance and there will be some insecure moments. So what? Life is full of insecure moments, and when you're breaking new ground, you're bound to hit some rocks. Use caution, pay attention to what hurts, but keep moving forward. As the saying goes "Feel the fear and do it anyway."
The Sun/Pluto and Mars/Chiron squares are strong enough that you may start to feel them as of October 1st.
Amidst this tension, Mercury stations Rx in Scorpio (also on October 4th). This is timely, because the delays and deeper investigations will work in your favour. You don't have to stop, but it will be to your benefit to slow down and think.
Strategize, strategize, strategize. Why is all the s**t hitting the fan? Why are people suddenly acting in a certain way? How can you come out ahead? There's a deeper reason, a truth, and you can uncover it in the Scorpio area of your chart. Scorpio and Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) will be emphasized, so this will not be the time to naively trust that things will work out.
If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes at:
- 3 to 6 degrees Libra or Pisces you'll feel the Venus/Neptune inconjunct
- 8 to 12 degrees of the Cardinal signs you'll feel the Sun/Pluto square
- 12 to 15 degrees of the Mutable signs you'll feel the Mars/Chiron square
