CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #166 -- Solar Oppositions and Your Relationships
September 21, 2018

We started writing our first astrology book that will describe the Moon-Venus and Venus-Mars combinations in the elements for the 12 Sun signs.

Because the format and layout of web pages cannot be fully transferred in a linear way, some changes in layout of the book will be necessary.

Writing a book is one thing, getting it published is another thing and we expect this to be another challenge (as we heard from different sources).

More astrology books are planned but we also want to have your ideas and say about what astrology books you would like us to write; if do-able for us.

That's why we launch a mini survey to hear your voice or suggestions.

Click here to get to our survey about future astrology books you would like us to write, if do-able.

Loving greetings

Love Forecasts for October 2018

(slowly hover over a paragraph with the mouse and wait a second for additional astrological information)

Click here to download the October 2018 calendar in pdf format.

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around October 2, October 8, October 15-16, October 23 and/or October 29-30.

During this month of October, the following planetary configurations will affect some birthdays in particular:
  • If you are born around February 5, March 22, May 7, June 22-23, August 9, September 24, November 8 or December 23, this month is about a drain on your physical body.

    There can be allergies or physical reactions to chemicals or toxic stuff (medication, drugs, foods...).

    If you are a female, it's possible that a man leaves your world, for whatever reason.

    Additionally, you better beware of water-related issues.

  • If you are born around January 8, February 21, April 7, May 23-24, July 10, August 26, October 11 or November 25, this month might bring detachment from others and aloneness.

    You appear more self-contained and reluctant to connect.
Generally speaking, October 3, 6 and 11 are less "lucky" days.

Try not to initiate any major projects on these dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty days (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

Around September 30 - October 1, Pluto stations and turns direct again at 18° Capricorn (the same numerical degree as the August 11 Solar Eclipse).

In the first half of the month, there can be lots of rain here and there, resulting in water-related issues (floods, inundations, etc.).

Stationing Pluto in Capricorn will continue to further bring huge transformations in the banking and corporate world as well as in governments.

During its station and direct motion, Pluto will start to release and show what it has investigated when it moved backward.

This will very likely result in some (new) big scandals and fraud to pop up.

After all, Pluto rules "the money of others" (insurances, taxes, the stock exchange,...) as well as all kinds of abuse and everything related to "the underworld."

When Pluto turns direct again, it is in less a hiding position and will dig up and thus release more, bring more into the open and up to the surface (Capricorn represents surfaces and masks).

Stationing Pluto is highly forceful and may indicate power conflicts to arise (and even culminate) these days and this month.

Expect more tension, irritation and public resistance and/or protests as a result.

In some instances, stationing Pluto marks a separation (of whatever kind) as well.

Realize that separations are mere big transformations with an emotional impact that are necessary for your further development.

Without "separations" no development.

News about a separation is especially likely because around October 2-3 Mercury at 18° Libra squares stationing Pluto at 18° Capricorn.

This waning square suggests protests, the news of a death, (mental) restlessness, vexation, frustration and anger.

There can be lots of talks, shouting, rage and a fighting spirit.

This waning aspect too is connected to the uncovering of fraud often.

Following astrometeorology, when Mercury squares stationing Pluto, chances are strong winds and even storm with heavy rain is part of the days.

Stationing Pluto in the earth sign Capricorn may as well rock the earth crust, increasing the likelihood of earthquakes, earth shocks, volcanic and other earth-related activity this month.

Around October 5, Venus, planet of relationships and harmony, stations at 10° Scorpio, the sign of its detriment, and turns retrograde.

Retrograde Venus marks a time of re-considering, often indicating the "falling out of love", more enjoying and re-discovering one's self.

It is not recommended to buy anything expensive during the retrograde motion because the value of the purchase will remain below the expectations.

Also, in matters of love and romance, it happens frequently that you meet a lover or beloved one from the past.

Reconciliations can happen during the retrograde motion of Venus.

It is not recommended to start a totally new relationship when Venus is retrograde because you will reconsider when Venus turns direct again and raises your "love consciousness."

Retrograde Venus is less interested in romance and more focused on money or material goods, especially when Venus is in Scorpio, the sign of the others' money (loans, debt, taxes, stock markets...).

Also, retrograde Venus increases creativity and any artistic project can now be envisioned.

If you are Libra or Taurus, you may not feel too well around the station.

Things don't go as planned or envisioned and you better take it easy.

If your Ascendant is Aries or Scorpio, your partner may withdraw, be more on him- or herself, feel ill or face some setbacks.

On a mundane level, and in general, the first half of October is full of astrological configurations that point to (the uncovering of) corruption, fraud, criminality, money laundering, big monetary transactions and/or monetary transformations, inundations or floods and storm, among others.

Around the October 9-10 New Moon, Mercury enters investigative Scorpio and is currently at the so-called "gates of death."

Following mundane astrology, when Mercury, significator of commerce, traffic and transportation, is at 0° Scorpio, car, bus and transportation accidents happen frequently, leaving many casualties.

Car traffic and transportation accidents are likely to happen around this New Moon, the more so because around October 10, Mercury at 1° Scorpio opposes Uranus at 1° Taurus while the day after, around October 11, stationing Venus at 10° Scorpio squares Mars at 10° Aquarius and Mercury at 1° Scorpio also squares the Lunar Nodes.

Clearly, the New Moon points to a bumpy road, separation, a highly busy time and an accident-prone period leading to damage to property.

The Mercury-Uranus opposition indicates emergency calls, breaking news and windy or stormy weather.

Any Venus-Mars square indicates not respecting boundaries resulting in clashes (physical or non-physical clashes).

Moreover, because Venus is in the sign of its detriment and aggressive and pushy Mars is more powerful, this aspect marks some more confrontations and conflicts, aside from accidents.

The Mercury-Lunar Nodes square is always found during times of increased restlessness and lots of hectic work.

Truly, this New Moon period is a hectic and very busy one.

The Sun at 18° Libra squares stationing Pluto at 18° Capricorn around October 12.

This waning square suggests a huge fight or protest against oppression, tyranny and/or injustice.

Anytime planets or bodies are at 18° in a sign, chances are they trigger the August 11 Solar Eclipse, reviving its basic meaning.

Around October 15, Mercury and Venus conjoin at 8° Scorpio indicating some love's sorrow and trying to resolve love issues.

Following mundane astrology, there may be maritime disasters or issues regarding some ships.

Also, water-related damage belongs to the possibilities.

If you are born around January 27, March 12, April 27, June 13, July 30, September 15, October 30 or December 14, October 19 looks very auspicious with highly favorable developments in matters of romance, love or money.

You feel blessed, full of joy and have creative moments.

Mercury at 14° Scorpio squares Mars at 14° Aquarius around October 19, suggesting some bullying, aggressive and combative behavior as the result of disagreements.

There is mental strain and an increased change of traffic accidents and physical injuries (cuts and wounds).

Around October 23 the Sun enters Scorpio through the so-called "gates of death."

Some of you may feel weak or ill, have a cold or experience flu-like symptoms.

There now is a stellium (more than 3 planets in a sign) in Scorpio: the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter all reside in Scorpio.

This stellium highlights all the Scorpio traits and will cover issues of abuse, investigations, power conflicts, the underworld, the money of others (taxes, insurances, the stock market, debt,...) etc.

If your Sun sign is Sagittarius, you may face a rather treacherous period with this stellium in Scorpio and you may likely feel down or ill or "rejected" for a couple of days

Around the October 24 Full Moon the Sun at 0° Scorpio opposes Uranus at 0° Taurus and squares the mean Lunar Nodes.

Actually, there is a T-square noticeable between the mean Lunar North Node (the apex point) and the Full Moon that comes together with a Venus-Uranus opposition.

So, that's a lot of planetary energies coming together around this Full Moon.

In the second half of October, retrograde Uranus visits 0° Taurus again, a degree area denoting existential changes.

Holding onto possessions does no longer make sense because disruptive Uranus will learn people to discard materialism and take a more liberating look at money and possessions.

The ongoing square between retrograde Uranus and the mean Lunar Nodes (that lasts the whole month of October) suggests ongoing unexpected and out-of-the-ordinary events.

Don't expect any stability this month.

The Full Moon accompanied by the Sun-Uranus opposition marks moves, changes of the residence, travel, a change of career but also damage to property or possessions, a forceful, upsetting and existential change of course or change in life, among others.

Hence, this Full Moon may bring irritation and some frustration as well.

Expect your plans to be canceled, confusion, hoaxes, gossip and/or deceptions through or in others around October 25.

Around October 26 the Sun and Venus conjoin at 3° Scorpio.

Venus is now fully involved in the mentioned T-square and the last week of October is clearly all about a change of residence (for the better), a move, home beautification, doing home improvements, to make home a cozy place.

Because Venus is the general significator of relationships, for some of you, a (secret) love affair may be part of the Full Moon period.

Anyway, the degree area of 3° Scorpio is a very fortunate one and denotes new possibilities, changes for the better and even a feeling of abundance.

Mercury and Jupiter conjoin at 27° Scorpio around October 29.

This is a very uplifting conjunction, presenting good news, promotions, successful agreements, favorable legal documents and news showing progress.

Around October 30 Venus at 0° Scorpio squares the mean Lunar Nodes, denoting that there is a T-square active the last week of October between the Venus-Uranus opposition and the Lunar North Node (being the apex point).

This is a very exciting T-square as it indicates social gatherings, exciting but short-lived encounters and/or attractions, love at first sight, receiving nice gifts or presents...

Some of you will start a (love) relationship over or swap lovers.

Around October 31 Mercury enters Sagittarius, the sign of its detriment while Venus regresses into the late Libra degrees where it feels better again because it feels at home again in its own sign.

In Sagittarius, Mercury wanders around, makes many short trips.

The downside is being lost in a larger whole and not fully seeing things in perspective but there is more optimism and generosity.

Clearly, late October ends in a beautiful way.

What's New on Our Web Site?

There are a couple of updates to mention:
  • We added a page about a Time for Love which we published in the previous Love Letter.

  • Just as we were catching our breath after sprinting to get ready for GDPR (the European General Data Protection Regulation) in time for its recent implementation date, the US FTC (The US Federal Trade Commission) has now entered the enforcement fray and demands companies and businesses to comply with its own set of rules ;)

    One of these more strict rules demands web sites to disclose any affiliations or associations either for profit or not.

    This made for another workload to make sure our web site is in compliance with these regulations as well.

Solar Oppositions and Your Relationships

In previous Love Letters we discussed the natal Sun representing your physical body.

We also mentioned that the zodiac sign opposite your sun sign reflects your relationships and encounters in the widest sense.

It makes sense that planets that oppose your Sun are thus in the zodiac sign opposite your Sun sign, or in the 7th sign counting from your Sun sign, or around the 7th house cusp (equal house system with the Sun on the Ascendant).

Such planets take on a relationship meaning, which is also the meaning of an opposition aspect.

Oppositions point to awareness coming from external sources or persons outside of us.

We wanted to find out if such planets actually could describe your relationships and/or partners.

Thanks to the Swiss Astrodatabank we were able to research solar oppositions.

In this article, we will start our new series with the natal Sun-Pluto opposition (taking into account an orb of 3°).

As usual, our research is divided into male and female horoscopes.

Natal Sun-Pluto oppositions in female charts

A whole lot of women with a tight Sun-Pluto opposition tend to experience marital stress in the broadest sense (abusive relationships, domestic violence, traumatic issues with the kids,...).

It does not wonder that lots of the women are divorced, some of which experience a bitter divorce.

However, there is a highly important exception to this rule: some women with Sun-Pluto oppositions do have a very happy marriage and in such case the women are almost all widowed.

So, in this case, it looks like the marriage lasts "till death do us part."

Above average, women with a close Sun-Pluto opposition have at least one daughter.

The Sun-Pluto opposition seems to increase the interest in metaphysics and mystic topics.

Above average, the women are or have been a model.

Unfortunately, lots of the women with Sun-Pluto oppositions have issues with the breasts (from breast enhancements to cancer).

Natal Sun-Pluto oppositions in male charts

Most men with a close Sun-Pluto opposition are, like their female counterpart, divorced and/or are married different times.

There is one important exception to this rule: the (Aquarian and Capricorn) men who have the Moon in Gemini have all experienced one long-lasting marriage.

Men with a tight Sun-Pluto opposition have a very high energy level and aside from being energetic, they can be fiery, temperamental, and highly active in a competitive way (like an activist).

The men are industrious but often face (mental) breakdowns too some time in life.

Above average, they have different kids and are considered a sex symbol.
