The October 8th Full Moon eclipse (at 15 degrees Aries) conjuncts Uranus Rx (at 14 degrees Aries). This will be an ending and a detonation.
Uranus is the abrupt bringer of clarity. The shocker and the shaker. I'm thinking sudden breaks for freedom. Or an immediate release of what's been building. The Sun will form an exact opposition to Uranus on October 7th, extending the potency of this eclipse for two days. But really, you may feel it any time between now and October 8th.
Pluto (at 11 degrees Capricorn) will be squaring Venus in Libra, a few hours after the eclipse. Pluto square Venus is the obsessive drive to be loved, or to possess what you must have. What will you do to get what you want? I mean...what will you really do? Pluto strips away Libra's pretence and pushes Venus to be honest. What happens if you realize that what you want is miles away from what you have?
You'll find out.
Yes, this eclipse is high stakes. But you've also got the Grand Fire Trine humming in the background (Mars will be trining Jupiter exactly at 17 degrees Leo). There's your release and your encouragement. No matter what comes tumbling down, you'll feel giddy with your new-found freedom. This could feel good, after the initial shock. Like the surge you get a few seconds after you hit your funny bone, or after you rip a bandage off. There will probably be some pain (Uranus and Pluto are involved).
Or, if you're pushing to seal the deal, you may win. It won't be effortless. It may cost you more than you bargained for. But you could still win.
Uranus guarantees nothing, of course. It's the wild card. But if your general aim is for freedom, you're on the right track. That makes the Venus/Pluto square tricky, because possessive desire does not equal freedom. You'll need to amplify the honesty of the Pluto square, while backing away from the urge to control.
You can't force it. By the time this eclipse hits, *it* (whatever's brewing) will be a done deal. If you think back to the most recent Uranus/Pluto square (the Grand Cardinal Cross) there may be some clues as to what's coming down.
