October 2021: Horoscopes for Moderns
Saturn and Pluto go direct. Two questions emerge. What to build up and what to tear down? Both modes are put in high relief now.
OCTOBER IS PART OF a colossal turnaround as the planets Saturn (the reality principle) and Pluto (destruction and rebirth) change their retrograde motion. Translated: October will feel like your life has re-engaged with destiny—but at a price. Stalled plans that went stale will find a new impetus and direction.
Because life is always about ups and downs that occur simultaneously, this return of momentum comes with a caveat. Namely, Pluto’s forward motion and the planet’s continued dismantling of the sign Capricorn. This transit echoes one of Picasso’s key axioms: “Every act of creation is, first of all, an act of destruction.”
