Astrology for Healers and Therapists for October 2017

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 5 Sundays in this month once again.

During last month misconceptions might well have turned out ok in the end. Onwards.

 

The week beginning the 1st October sees seemingly little change to the aspect pattern, however Pluto is moving forwards again and Mercury has moved into Libra to join the Sun in a temporary aspect with the Moon. The unaspected Venus of last week has joined with Mars in its challenge to Neptune and line of ease with Pluto.

 

Cardinal has gained a sign from Mutable. Earth and Water have each lost a sign to Air.

Despite the lack of aspect for Mercury it looks as if there is preparation for some deep thinking. Individuals are not going to let opportunities slip by.  Careful!

 

Counsellors – It would be well to look closely at what is real and what is speculation or fantasy. Sometimes Clients being too heavenly minded or altruistic is not a helpful stance to take.

 

Healers – The lack of Water and dominance of Air could well indicate problems with limbs. Watch out for Bladder and Kidney meridians.

 

  The week of the 8th October sees the disappearance of the Mars/Venus challenge to Neptune and a temporary Grand Trine to Pluto and the Moon.  The Sun/Mercury conjunction is now challenging Pluto.  Neptune is unaspected.

 

 

The Modal scene is unchanged but Air has dropped a sign to Earth.

On the surface things look very good. But this is a case of too good to be true.  Someone is not looking as closely as they should at the chances that present themselves.  ‘Fools rush in where angels fear to tread’.

 

Counsellors – You might be bashing your collective heads against the proverbial wall this week. Don’t give up though.  Clients will come to their senses when they realise what has been overlooked.

 

Healers – Still those limbs problems indicated but switch your attention to Stomach and Spleen meridians as the Elemental scene possibly over emphasises those two meridians.

The week beginning the 15th October reveals the Sun and Mercury now joining forces weakly with Jupiter. Venus has moved into Libra, Neptune is still unaspected and the Moon has formed yet another temporary Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus and a smaller trine with the Sun and Mercury with Saturn.

 

Mutable has lost a sign to Fixed but Fire has gained a sign, Earth has lost two signs and Water has gained a sign.

If last week indicated foolish actions and repenting at leisure, then this week is doubly so. Sudden and possibly catastrophic chances will come along and chances are evens as to how they may pan out!

 

Counsellors – Ever feel as if you might as well not be present? Righteous idiots come to mind.  Just do your best.

 

Healers – A much better balance of energies is presented for healing. Never mind the Counsellors picture, therapy is positive and plentiful.

  The week beginning 22nd October and Mercury has entered Scorpio.  The Grand Trines and lesser trine have disappeared, leaving a strong opposition between the Sun/Mercury/Jupiter conjunction and Uranus.  Mercury has formed a line of ease with Neptune.   Pluto is unaspected.

 

 

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed and Fire and Air have both lost a sign each to Water.

How the mighty have fallen. Emotional reaction is likely and beating of breast is mandatory.  All is not lost though for responsibility and guilt are real and accepted in a positive fashion.

 

Counsellors – Back to work. Clients are eager to learn from their mistakes, especially if they can see just how their blindness could have been avoided.  Is it fate at work?

 

Healers – the dominance of Water will overplay the Bladder and Kidney meridians again. Work will never end.

The week beginning 29th October sees the Sun strongly conjunct with Jupiter in Scorpio.  Mars has moved into Libra and is unaspected.  The challenge between Saturn and Mars has disappeared but Pluto is now aspected to Mercury and Venus.

 

 

 

Mutable has lost a sign to Fixed and Earth has lost a sign to Air.

Reaction sets in as emotions flump and make their presence felt.  However the overall picture is one of optimism as lessons are taken to heart.  No one else is to blame.  ‘If only I had listened’.

 

Counsellors – this could be a very positive week so make the most of it, but try not to gloat – at least openly!

 

Healers – it is not so much the dominance of Water this week as the dearth of Earth. Back to watching the Stomach and Spleen meridians!

Life is very full at the moment!
