You too are part of all that is. Cosmic reality is expressed on earth, and also within you. With the help of planets and stars, the universe sets up circumstances that will allow the soul to work out its karma.
October is a complex month astrologically, with several major shifts. Mars is in close combustion with the Sun the entire month, and there is a deep sense of change as Saturn and Jupiter both shift from retrograde to direct.
A retrograde Mercury is closely involved with the solar eclipse in Taurus on June 10th, which can manifest problems with communication. Mars is debilitated all month and Jupiter goes retrograde on June 20th.
