October 2019 Astrology Forecast: Mercury Spookygrade

October 2019 Astrology Forecast: Mercury Spookygrade

In episode 224 astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show to talk about the astrological forecast for October of 2019.

October features Mercury stationing retrograde in Scorpio on Halloween, which has been dubbed Mercury Spookygrade by Cam White.

The rest of the astrology of October features inner planets moving through Libra and squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and then later in the month moving through Scorpio and opposing Uranus.

We ran into some unexpected technical issues with this episode due to a snafu with Austin’s internet connection, so his video is frozen in the video version, and we had to cut out some stuff in post in order to clean up the audio version.

This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

    • The zodiacal releasing periods are basically the same for any of the three times that are possible for him. For the sake of this you could say that I’m using the standard time that gives him 29 Leo rising though.

      • Thank you.
        I don’t know enough astrology to have asked my question based on looking to see if Regulus (29Leo50) is on his ascendent.
        So the standard time I see is 10:54 am.
