In episode 272 astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan look at the astrological forecast for October of 2020.
The forecast for October features Mars retrograde in Aries squaring Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter, as well as a Mercury retrograde station opposite Uranus, and a Full Moon conjunct Uranus.
With all of the Uranus and Mercury retrograde signatures, our working title for this month is October Surprise.
Later in the episode we talk about some ambivalence surrounding the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, community news, and how to deal with an untimed birth chart.
Below you will find the show notes, followed by links to the recordings.
