NorthPoint Astrology Journal: Your Guide to Planetary Energies for October 1-7, 2012 – by Pam Younghans

THE GROUND beneath our feet shifts this week, as four planets change signs and Jupiter stations retrograde. When
a planet changes signs or direction, we experience a shift in our
energetic foundation — sometimes subtly, sometimes more noticeably,
depending on our own natal chart configuration.

It is rare to have so many planets
making these shifts within a few days’ time. It indicates that we are
now ready to shift our perspective and, in many ways, to take the next

Here’s the rundown for the week, ordered by time: Venus enters Virgo
(Tuesday), Jupiter goes retrograde (Thursday), Mercury and Saturn both
enter Scorpio (Friday), and Mars enters Sagittarius (Saturday).

OF THE PLANETS shifting this week, Saturn is the
slowest moving, and so carries the greatest influence energetically.
Saturn is known as the Teacher of the zodiac, since it requires us to be
disciplined and responsible. If you’re familiar with the characters in
the Harry Potter books, think of Saturn in the personage of Professor
McGonagall — stern but fair, no-nonsense, but with our growth and
learning always the top priority.

Like all the planets, Saturn provides opportunities for growth in the
area of life represented by the sign it is traveling through. For our
Teacher planet, its sign indicates where we are being required to get
more realistic, make practical (and often hard) decisions, and take
greater responsibility for outcomes.

SATURN has been mostly in Libra since late October
2009 (with a brief return to Virgo from April to July 2010). For the
past three years, Libran themes have been the major focus for many of
our lessons. These themes have included partnerships, fairness, justice,
and the balance between self and other in all of its manifestations.

This week, Saturn leaves Libra and enters Scorpio, where the planet
will travel until late December 2014 (with a brief return from June to
September 2015). With this sign change, our core Saturn lessons shift
fairly tangibly.

Energetically, Saturn was comfortable in intellectual Libra, enjoying
the detachment that air signs encourage. There is a compatibility
between Saturn and Libra that helped us integrate the lessons involved,
even if we still found them challenging.

SCORPIO is much different energy. A water sign,
Scorpio is emotionally based, intense and often moody. As Saturn enters
Scorpio, it’s a bit like Professor McGonagall taking on the task of
disciplining the Slytherins (with apologies to those who are not
familiar with or not fans of the HP series).

Saturn last entered Scorpio in December 1982, where it traveled
until November 1985. For those who were in body then, we may recall
these Scorpio themes being a part of our lesson plan during those years:
truth and secrets, power and manipulation, intimacy, sexuality and
boundaries, transformation, and the revelation of unconscious or hidden

It will be interesting to see how we re-engage these themes as Saturn
gets more firmly established in Scorpio over the weeks ahead. But we
may not have to wait too long for evidence of the Saturn-in-Scorpio
effect — Mercury also enters Scorpio this Friday, which could quickly
draw our awareness to where these themes are being played out.

JUPITER’S CHANGE of direction is next in line as we
consider this impact of this week’s planetary shifts. Jupiter is
currently in Gemini, advancing our communication skills and inspiring
our interest in new ideas.

This outer expansion turns inward while Jupiter is retrograde (until
January 30). During this four-month period, we are encouraged to turn
within for our answers, to review what we have recently learned, and to
reconsider what we can do to bring greater joy and meaning to our lives.

DURING THIS TIME, Jupiter will support us as we
examine what we truly believe, as we learn to listen more carefully to
our inner voice and hear what it has to say. If we have been living
according to the dictates of the mind instead of our spirit, or if we
have been listening to others’ opinions instead of following our own
wisdom, these next four months can be a powerful time to reorient
ourselves, to align more fully with our truth and inner knowing.

And, if we feel we are already in touch with our soul’s perspective,
this Jupiter retrograde period can deepen our knowing of Self, open us
to further insights and revelations, and help us recommit to our soul’s

THE OTHER TWO PLANETS changing signs this week are
Venus and Mars — the planets that represent our receptive (feminine) and
assertive (masculine) traits. As Venus enters Virgo, we become more
cautious about who we allow into our hearts. Virgo is very
discriminating, and prefers not to let go of the reins of control, for
fear of ending up with something that doesn’t match the ideal.

On the other hand, with Mars entering Sagittarius, we feel more like
taking risks and are willing to laugh at any mistakes we make, rather
than taking them too seriously. If this sounds like a contradiction to
what was just described about Virgo, you’re exactly right.

AT BASIC LEVELS, Virgo and Sagittarius are motivated
by very different needs. Virgo is an earth sign, and wants practical
solutions. Sagittarius is a fire sign, and wants life to be fun and
exciting. For the next four weeks, while Venus and Mars are in these
contradictory signs, we may find our own relationship needs more
complicated than usual, and differences with friends or significant
others may become more apparent.

As we navigate relationship issues in the days ahead, this is a good
time to use the higher qualities of both signs, and to be aware of where
we may fall into the lower vibrational traits. With Venus in Virgo, we
can choose to observe without judgment, and to love unconditionally
while being careful not to slide into self-sacrifice or martyrdom. And,
with Mars in Sagittarius, we can choose to laugh “with” instead of “at,”
and to seek the underlying meaning of what is occurring, making sure
not to lapse into self-righteousness or arrogance.
