Astrology for Healers and Therapists for October 2018

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in October when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 4 Sundays in this month once again.

Last month showed self pity in abundance, although it lessened in intensity towards the end of the month. Let’s see how that progresses.

 

The week beginning the 7th October doesn’t show much change from last week, but look again. Pluto’s challenge to Mercury has moved to the Sun and Mercury is now challenged by Uranus, which in turn now no longer challenges Mars.  Jupiter is now aspected well for a while with the Moon, but Pluto is finished its retrograde movement and commenced a forward move again but Venus has gone retrograde in its place.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Earth has gained a sign from Air.

The degree of self pity has not only lessened a bit more but it has moved people to a deeper awareness and acceptance of self worth. This ought to be a positive issue but individuals may still be more than usually vulnerable to manipulation.

 

Counsellors – Do check the veracity of Client’s self pity or self awareness if possible. The apparent self respect may only be skin deep.

 

Healers – The dearth of Fire continues to be a possible source of issues. Keep a wary eye on the Heart and Small Intestine meridians.

 

  The week of the 14th October sees Mercury moved into Scorpio with a very strong conjunction with Venus.  Mars no longer has a line of ease with the Sun but Saturn has such a line with the Mercury Venus conjunction.  Jupiter is once again unaspected.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed whilst Fire has gained a sign from Earth and Water from Air.

It looks as if the self worth is going to take a battering with the corresponding sense of guilt and self pity rising accordingly.

 

Counsellors – It will seem that all your good work of last week has been in vain, but do not despair for there should also be a rise of anger that could stand Clients in good stead against manipulation.

 

Healers – You ought to find a much more stable energetic picture unfolding with lasting effect from your endeavours.  Make the most of it.

 

The week beginning the 21st October reveals the Mercury Venus conjunction gone.  Uranus challenges both the Sun and Venus but Jupiter has a temporary line of ease with the Moon.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged but Fire has lost its single sign once again as Water takes it on.

Emotions are likely to be very much an up and down feature this week as viewpoints are switched so rapidly.

 

Counsellors – You need to use challenge to cut through the negativity of self pity and hone in on past lessons learnt. Clients will be hurting more than they are prepared to show you but don’t let that put you off.

 

Healers – Kidney and Bladder meridians will undoubtedly need attention as well as Heart and Small Intestine. It looks as if some patients may be experiencing more Karmic issues this week, more than you might expect.  Look deeper if possible.

  The week beginning 28th October shows the Sun has moved into Scorpio and the most unusual situation of Mercury and Jupiter (although being conjunct), Pluto and Neptune all being seemingly unaspected!

 

Cardinal has given a sign to Fixed, which is now truly dominant, whilst the Elemental scene is unchanged from last week.

There could well be one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ personal revelations experienced this week.  Everything else looks to be held in abeyance.

 

Counsellors – You need hardly say a word this week as Clients rediscover deep lessons previously learnt. You ought to stand back and let them talk.

 

Healers – The Karmic issues could well be addressed. It ought to be wonderful to see.

Awesome.
