October 2019 Astrological Forecast
October is an important month for secrets, advanced political negotiations, global contests, legal actions, writs, proceedings, new ideas, partnerships, interaction, burden sharing, trade alternatives, advanced up-to-date beginnings and global transformation. During the first week of October the Sun will transit through the balance sign of Libra, followed by a positive waxing Moon in Scorpio (analysis). The planets Mercury (negotiations), Venus (peace), will transit Scorpio (secret meetings) early this month, influencing and dissolving several political obstructions, blockages and the possible withdrawal of certain destructive global trade issues. The planetary aspects for October will also influence many political heads to work together through the present global interference and disagreements over climate change policy and to find a mutual understanding, turning negative dilemma into harmony, rather than outright disagreement and future political warfare.
Throughout October, Mercury (negotiations) will clash with Uranus (disruptive) during the 6th-8th, and Mars (determination) clashes with the Moon’s node (poor timing). Yes, we will continue to witness ongoing open political conflict, indictments, threats of impeachments, legal disagreements, clashes and disapproval over territories, trade competition, agreements and concern with the World Trade Organisation, tariffs, sanctions and oil prices.
Fortunately, overall the month's planetary aspects do trend toward slowly and positively sorting out some of the immediate global problems through intense investigation, negotiations and compromise. Political figures will also be seen to instigate a turnaround from the present ridiculous illusional trends of global issues to the practical application of matters, especially when it comes to the subject of governmental procedures, law, global trade and climate change.
Astrologically, during October with Mars (action) in transit through Libra (compromise), this passage may influence second thoughts for some countries' politicians and reignite many international delegates including corporate representatives with a future long-term view concerning the resent Climate Action Summit, held during 23 September 2019. With the long haul of Uranus (change) in the financial sign of Taurus until 2026, economics, affordability and common sense will prevail regarding contributions to the United Nations' green fund. Some countries will either withdraw from the agreement or default on payments due to lack of affordability with their internal state capital.
Astrologically, the United Nations should have never held their climate summit during the last quarter of a negative Moon, in conjunction with 18 hostile planetary aspects soaring deleteriously throughout the conference period. Reason, a total future failure is predicted for long term cooperative climate change clarifications with no real solution to the continuous climate control debate and control of nature’s forces. Continuous expensive United Nations deliberation can be expected for many months and years ahead. With Jupiter (extravagant) and Neptune (deceived) the climate change business is a real money-making exercise for the greedy rich investor and does nothing for the natural environment. Mother Nature will always have her own way.
The United Nations horoscope shows nothing but Illusion, continued future disappointment and failure, including a huge waste of accumulated global green funds for chasing rainbows, instead of getting down to the real issue of saving lives by clearing global minefields, salvaging innocent children from international trafficking for sexual exploitation and establishing urgent infrastructure and utilities programs for third world and war-torn countries. Greater action and funding should also be considered in assisting those refugees and migrants to return to their original countries and homes to start rebuilding their lives and making a living again. Also, with Saturn (responsibility) in the sign of Capricorn (land), the UN and governments should concentrate together on educating the masses regarding forestry, agriculture and the cleaning up of pollution, namely plastic bottles, bags and general rubbish in and around developed and third world countries and oceans. Pollution is more harmful on the sea and land than the scenario of global warming.
Uranus (change) is moving through Taurus (economy) for the first time in 84 years and will transit in this sign until April 2026, interrupting and changing the global economy and the way we trade and live. Jupiter (erroneous) at present clashing with Neptune (exaggeration) on the global horoscope is influencing an exaggerated panic situation especially for the younger generation over global warming and emissions. It is unbelievable to witness our delightful children of the globe (future planners and achievers of this world) who are presently being disgracefully abused, hoodwinked, similar as they were in Germany with the third Reich “Brown Shirts” propaganda during 1930 - 42 (when Uranus last visited Taurus its primary stubborn purposes then were demonstrations, providing protection and voice for Nazi rallies and assemblies, disrupting the meetings of opposing politicians, fighting against the paramilitary units of the opposing parties, believing in a new world with Hitler at the helm). History is repeating itself with mass demonstrations of children.
With Neptune (imagination) in Pisces (vagueness), the children of today unwittingly rally over global warming and blame past and older generations for the hullabaloo. They appear to have inherited a deleterious form of infantile climate change knowledge and undesirable assessment of the future of the Earth. Their present understanding is being enhanced through negative United Nations hysteria, politically leftward educational teachings and unofficial inflated scientific dogma, saying that this world we live in is going to run out of water and food and will come to a disastrous end in a short period of time due to rising sea levels unless global warming and climate change is rectified by world governments to control carbon emissions.
Absolutely ridiculous. The planet Earth has been around for approximately 4.5 billion years and will continue to be around for many millions of years in the future, immaterial of the present population growth and climatic conditions, droughts, fires and floods. This Earth we live on has continually experienced climate change since birth and will endure climate and weather changes far into the future. Remember, there are many natural variables that cause weather patterns and climate changes, including the Sun, Moon and atmospherics combined. Trees and plants need and feed on carbon dioxide and in return they supply oxygen for the world population and creatures to breath and survive. With Pluto (rebuild) in Capricorn (land), 'Plant more trees' should be the present global motto.
The slow planetary movements of Mercury (movement), Venus (attraction), Mars (strife), Jupiter (achievement), Saturn (stability), Uranus (change), Neptune (climate) and Pluto (evolution), all moving together in their respective transits, take approximately 26,000 years to cycle and return to their present location. These planetary passages over the years have always influenced change and contributed to climate, environment, inhabitants and all creatures of this planet to arrive and exit. We adjust to the ever-changing ecosystem and living standards of the day and we will continue to do so, as we have done in the past. It is called Alpha/Omega, the beginning, end, rebirth and death, a continuous revolving cycle that cannot be controlled by humans, only nature and evolution of time can control that.
Interesting to note, Uranus (electricity) moved into the fertile water sign of Pisces (hoax) during 2003-2011, speeding up the urgency for renewables because many academics and alarmists believed the adverse weather conditions of that era were changing quickly and permanently due to coal fire emissions and fossil fuel use. The globe was going to be short of water and food if we all did not take seriously the danger of climate change and global warming. “Spend millions on solar panels and wind grinders to avoid fossil fuel use to save the planet”, they stated. What happened? We had some of the most torrential rains and floods in history, an abundance of wheat and food crops was produced, but no extra infrastructure, such as dams and weirs, was built by governments to cope with capturing this precious commodity of rain to distribute to dry areas, hence through waste, water restrictions are present today in some countries. However, don’t panic, when Jupiter moves into the semi-fertile sign of Capricorn from December 3, 2019 for a 12-month cycle, this will bring some relief to farmers through an increase in rain and pasture growth as it links with Saturn (farms), Uranus (change) and Pluto (purification) throughout 2020. What will the alarmist say then?
If you wish to consider the options, give some thought to this doomsday scenario. Presently, there are around 20,000 space rocks whizzing around the Earth’s corridors and there is a good chance that in the future, one of those meteors is going to crash into the earth’s surface like they have in the past. In Australia alone, there has been over the past 3 billion years, in the vicinity of 30 impact craters out of around 176 recognised worldwide. The biggest was in the Western Australia Pilbara region and the crater remains can be viewed today. This crash wiped out the vegetation throughout the country including the Dinosaur era. Hence today you can witness large deserts throughout Australia. Also, as recently as 2013 in Chelyabinsk a meteor passed overhead and exploded, injuring 1500 people. This event has happened before and will happen again. However, the good news: enjoy yourself for the moment, the meteors that are zipping towards Earth at present seem to be only waving “hello” as they pass by. However, we should always be prepared in the future for the sudden and unexpected, that one may eventually become renegade and hit the earth. Then we will certainly be in trouble.
After the full moon on 14th AEST, planetary aspects for the remainder of October continue to influence the USA and Chinese horoscopes in a more compromising manner. However, the trade war between the USA and China will continue to be unsettled and debated until December 3, when Jupiter (expansion) enters the commercial trade sign of Capricorn for a 12 month cycle. China will also begin a new 12-year trading cycle from January 2020. Uranus (change) in Taurus (finance) exchange ratings and valuation of the Yuan and US Dollar will also be seen through financial markets together with China’s exit from the World Trade Organization in 2020 as a new developing country. Trade is predicted to change significantly throughout the world between 2020 - 2026, due to major planets Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in historical transits.
US President Donald Trump (Gemini) enters a month of change, surprises and reformation in his Presidency environment. With a variation of planetary aspects influencing his chart, he is apt to be impatient and irritable with the Democrats and news media. Impeachment proceedings will have Trump in cover-up mode. However, success and recognition are indicated and any impeachment procedures by the Democrats will fall on deaf ears and come to nothing. Congress will pursue vigorously the impeachment proceedings; however, the US Senate will be the block for any impeachment. According to Trump's horoscope, he has mostly favourable planetary aspects associated in his horoscope for October and this will be an economic month of expansion and delight for Trump. He will receive support from the people around him and will be lucky in anything he undertakes. His attitude will be positive and optimistic, and success is his for the taking.
Nancy Pelosi’s horoscope (Aries) indicates an impatient, jealous, secretive, scheming tyrant, willing to trash the reputation of any elected Republican President of the USA. In October she has Mars (aggression) clashing with Jupiter (law) in her horoscope, together with Saturn (restriction) joining Uranus (disruption), triggering much disappointment for her and the Democrats. She could embarrass herself as well, there will be no actual corruption nor adverse intelligence findings regarding Trump's past communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (Aquarian). This impeachment fiasco will also create embarrassment and drama for Joe Biden (Scorpio) with Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (corruption) opposing his Jupiter (excessive). Biden’s past chequered history will be exposed. Not good for Biden and the Democrats' campaign image and that will upset Pelosi.
During October, Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson (Gemini) can expect a continuous period of tension and anxiety, especially on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 8th, 11th and 18th. He will need to find stability and emotional safety due to the forceful pressures around him. With Mars (determination) entering Libra (compromise), he is likely to encounter drastic changes in his position as Prime Minister during October. His ambitions will increase considerably, and he will push to overcome the limits that currently hinder his progress over Brexit. With Mercury (debate) in Scorpio (secrets), there will be deception, disloyalty, tension and arguments from members on both sides of the House of Commons and in his prime ministerial environment. His life will take an important turn during this month, changing his goals to new principal objectives of greater range. Johnson is determined to lead Britain out of the European Union with or without a deal on October 31st. However, this will not occur, with Mercury (deals) in retrograde until November 20, 2019. Boris Johnson can expect delays or obstacles in the realisation of his initiatives and occupational objectives, and the fruits that could be gained won't be in alignment with his efforts. Johnson can expect a month of difficult tests during which he will become aware of his own limitations. Brexit will eventuate after November 2019 with the overall British people in favour of the change.
Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison (Taurus), is flying high this month even though this is an important cycle of regeneration, liberation and transformation within himself, and he may not consider it an easy month. However, the planets form a supporting influence for him throughout October. He will be more positively exposed to the Australian public and this will increase his popularity in the polls. He can expect a month of honours or recognition for his government planning and continued activities. His career and government goals are emphasised, and he may attain success through important objectives concerning drought conditions, infrastructure development, jobs, renewables, agriculture and water planning. He can count on the support of government, influential business officials and overseas dignitaries to achieve his goals. Morrison’s popularity with China will be positive, yet competitive. With Jupiter soon to enter Capricorn, 3 December 2019, consumer exports to China will increase throughout 2020 with a generous spike in the mining and gas industry exports as well. Morrison will be invited to visit China and meet with Xi Jinping in 2020. They will achieve a positive understanding with each other, Taurus/Gemini. The personal association between them will not be hindered by Australia’s strong alliance with the USA.

Stock markets will continue to be unpredictable throughout October, more so during 8th-11th, when Mercury (announcements) and Uranus (commodities) clash. From 21st-29th, Mars (strife) meets with the Moon Node and Saturn (restriction) could affect precious metals and currencies. With Mercury (price) favourably connecting with Neptune (oil) during 15th-17th, and Venus (spendthrift) meeting with Neptune (oil) during 21st-23rd, this cycle could see lower oil prices. During 20th -29th, Mars (impulsive) the Moon's Node (business) clashes with Saturn (limitation). Various political, consumer prices and sudden unexpected business losses could be seen, and stocks could show a bear market during this time.

October is a clean-up month, with Mercury (investigations), Venus (money), Saturn (responsibility), Uranus (sudden and unexpected), and Pluto (corruption) having government authorities and agencies participating in an all-out investigation against drug syndicates, imported contraband, company registrations, fraud, welfare, taxation, bankruptcies, overseas tax havens, family trusts and gambling. Many legal cases will commence during October regarding financial impropriety, corruption, racketeering and major crime.
During the 4th- 15th, weather patterns in the southern hemisphere will tend to bring south-easterly windy conditions and scattered showers, giving small relief for parched areas. Fire risk should be moderate for October and some seismic activity could also be seen. Northern Hemisphere weather conditions may bring early snow falls, cyclonic conditions and moderate to cold temperatures. Overall, with Venus and Uranus in opposition during the first two weeks, October could see hot one day and cold the next, very unpredictable temperatures until Mercury (temperature) goes into retrograde on the 31st, bringing a change of wind from the north.
October will be an exciting and competitive month for women’s sport, Venus (women) in Scorpio (feminine) competition. Mars (energy) in Libra (balance) will have less accident proneness. October also favours water sport competition such as yachting, water skiing, polo and swimming. Preliminary planning and training for the America’s Cup yachting race for 2021 in Auckland, New Zealand should also begin during October with many countries pre-competing.
Travel companies and tourist organizations could find October rather slow with bookings; with Jupiter (travel) and Neptune (worry) clashing, travellers may be concerned about reliability with travel plans. Cruise companies may benefit rather than hotel land tour group type travel. Check out travel deals, there will be excellent packages on sale and big savings could be seen.
Mercury (communication) forming adverse aspects on the 6th, 7th, 8th, will have news services in a gallop with political events. No major war is indicated with Iran, USA is predicted to negotiate terms which may take until December to seek any form of immediate compromise. However, Iran, according to their horoscope, will find 2020 adverse for trade. The country has slow adverse planetary aspects for the next three years.
