In episode 420 we give an overview of the monthly astrology forecast for October 2023, which features eclipses and lots of Pluto aspects, with astrologers Chris Brennan, Austin Coppock, and Nicholas Polimenakos.
At the beginning of the month we see the end of the Venus and Mercury retrograde periods, with Venus finally departing from Leo and moving into Virgo, and Mercury departing from Virgo and moving into Libra.
In October we move into eclipse season, with the first in a new series of solar eclipses in the sign of Libra, and the last of a series of lunar eclipses in the sign of Taurus.
Pluto stations direct in Capricorn this month and begins heading towards a return to Aquarius early next year, and this also marks the final pass of the Pluto return of the United States.
We spend the first hour of the show talking about the astrology of recent stories in the news, including new birth times for Dua Lipa and Elon Musk, the end of the writers strike, and the synastry between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce.
Then in the second and third hour of the show we do a deep dive into the astrology of October, and talk about the major transits coming up this month.
