October 2022 Forecast and Fourth Quarter North Node Horoscopes


October 1 Venus in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries. A positive start to the month! Venus and Jupiter often bring good things even in opposition. Self-esteem, confidence and supportive relationships get a boost today. Pause for two days before deciding to splurge if it would put you into debt, but allow yourself to expand, celebrate and upgrade now if you can afford to do so.

October 2 Mercury stations direct in Virgo. After three weeks of miscommunications, lost emails and misunderstandings, the Messenger sets things in order once again in one of his home signs. Expect more details to surface regarding any situations since September 9, but Mercury is also the cosmic trickster. His actions reverberate through future and past Rx periods and stations, so we might receive information about other times Mercury stationed direct. November 3, 2020 was one such time. Whatever information arises will be thorough. Mercury in Virgo digs and communicates in more comprehensive ways than Mercury in his other home sign, Gemini.

October 3-6 Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Although this square goes exact by degree and not to the minute, we will feel it! Saturn-Square-Uranus energy colored all of 2021 with its controversial mandates and protests. Questions of top down authority vs. individual rights re-surge. Food scarcity vs. food sovereignty, electricity, Big Tech, financial systems, transhumanism, and censorship also rise as key topics. Frustration peaks. So do demands for creative solutions. In order to benefit from this friction, look for nuances, irony and opportunity. You cannot comply yourself out of tyranny, but revolution with no plan breeds anarchy, which then breeds another form of tyranny. Aim for evolution, beyond mere revolution.

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

October 9 Full Moon in Aries, 4:55 p.m. Eastern US time. The Full Moon conjuncts Chiron, alerting us to a need for healing. The Sabian Symbol for this “Blood Moon” is: (ARIES 17°): TWO DIGNIFIED SPINSTERS SITTING IN SILENCE. The symbol encourages us to pull inside ourselves, yet paradoxically to do so together. We must tend to our own inner landscape, but group meditations and prayer bring powerful results. Consider sitting in silence with one or more people, and holding an intention for love and healing. Nature and animal friends count, too! If you don’t have a person to meditate with, expand your idea of solidarity. Heads up: this Full Moon conjuncts the start-of-Watergate Chiron and sits between the US natal Chiron and transiting Chiron. An extremely challenging and painful time for the United States.

October 10 Mercury re-enters Libra. The Messenger moves from gathering all the details to communicating them in a manner that fosters harmony, partnership, grace and beauty. The next few weeks help to build — rather than burn — bridges.

October 11-12 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius, Mercury in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries, and Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces. These are big energy days with lots of aspects. Huge revelations shatter illusions. A difficult, but potentially productive time, provided we balance multiple perspectives. Action seems slower than desired. Small sacrifices occur in order to win a much larger spiritual war. Although some of these actions focus on politics and the legal realm, we must transcend ego to understand philosophical and spiritual context of events.

October 17-18 Sun and Venus in Libra trine Mars in Gemini. Light and love infuse willpower and action. You’ll feel more motivated and optimistic about your prospects. Romance, creativity and potential breakthroughs are in the air.

October 19-20 Sun and Venus in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn. An intense period that highlights power dynamics within relationships. Beware of manipulation, compulsions and obsessions that lead to volatile situations. Breakthroughs and deep intimacy are possible, but these are highly charged days. Pay attention to uncomfortable feelings and realizations that rise to the surface. Dreams and visceral reactions offer deep insights.

October 23 Sun and Venus enter Scorpio and Saturn stations direct in Aquarius. The dial for intensity and commitment turns up several notches. Beware of jealousy and a desire for revenge. Focus instead on intimacy, revelations, and deep, solid connection.

October 25 New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse, 6:49 a.m. Eastern US time. This New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs at exactly 2°00′ Scorpio. This degree emphasizes sacrifice of something old and cherished, the surrender of which allows us to move forward. Venus sits in the same degree, bringing love and beauty to the process of transmutation. Memories remain but new life beckons.

October 28 Jupiter retrograde re-enters Pisces. For clues about how Jupiter’s return to Pisces might affect you, look back to April 2022, as well as September 2010 – January 22, 2011. Many of the same degrees will reactivate. Faith soars, and we feel uplifted. Things that began during those times will return, evolve, or spiral in larger ways between now and December 20, 2022.

October 29 Mercury enters Scorpio. The time between now and November 17 favors deep research, powerful communication and offers a good opportunity to make amends. Sincere apologies go a long way during Mercury in Scorpio. They also buffer a tendency to use words as weapons. Keen insights arise, often through hidden channels. The subconscious finds freer expression, and we might find ourselves sharing secrets in more intimate and vulnerable ways. It seems easier to process dark, disturbing information. The collective worldview could undergo radical transformation during this period.

October 30 Mars stations retrograde in Gemini. Let the games begin! Mars is extra active in Gemini, and will retrace the path he’s traveled since September 3, 2022. Mars remains retrograde until January 12, 2023. We’ll feel a push-pull of activity mixed with a need for greater patience in order to get things right. Anyone with planets or angles in the 3-29 degree range of Gemini, Pisces, Virgo or Sagittarius will feel this in a major way. The US natal chart’s Uranus, Mars and Descendant get triple fly-by’s from the God of War, Will and Action. Activity pauses the day before Samhain/Halloween, one of the thinnest veil times of the year. A good day to honor Ancestors who fought for you in their time.

How October’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.     

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. If you’re right on the cusp, consider both possibilities or book a reading for more clarity.


ARIES NORTH NODE: You have what it takes to triumph in these challenging times! Fear not. You were made to rise to the occasion. Your path is more about action than daydreaming, but strategic visualization helps you to succeed. Don’t sacrifice yourself to or for anyone else. If you can’t see a way forward, you’ll find victory by turning your perspective upside down and inside out. Mars, your North Node sign’s ruler, assists from Gemini. “Hurry up and wait” marks this quarter. You’re on a need to know basis, but when you get the nudge to act, do! You want to hide from conflict and confrontation, but you benefit from wisely chosen battles. Courage breeds opportunity.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: October and November highlight your North and South Node axis, with key planets moving through Taurus and Scorpio. The Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, bring up old relationships, worldviews and versions of yourself for review. The November 8 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus reactivates the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction from late July/early August. You’ve got another powerful chance to set intentions and manifest something new. Remember, Taurus North Node natives benefit from step-by-step progress rather than Scorpio’s trauma-drama. Repeat and build upon prior successes instead of demanding change in one fell swoop.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: This is a quarter to get things done! With Mars crisscrossing your North Node sign, you can expect activation and opportunity. Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it will not happen now. Watch for signs and synchronicities. These arrive like love notes from the Universe, telling you to keep exploring, keep playing, and keep finding new avenues to delight. The December 7-8 Full Moon in Gemini almost exactly conjuncts Mars. This event marks a powerful time to challenge old dogma and welcome new ways of engaging life. You are so much more than your past. Enjoy the journey and increased pace.

CANCER NORTH NODE: A surprisingly active quarter, even without conjunctions in your North Node sign. Uranus in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces and trines from Scorpio offer positive transformation to your nodal axis. In December, the Sun, Mercury and Venus traverse your South Node sign of Capricorn, bringing a chance to review old relationships, worldviews and self-conceptions. How can you integrate the best of the old with where your soul longs to go? You might need periods of rest and retreat in order to make the most of opportunities for emotional and spiritual liberation. Take time to nurture yourself and others.

LEO NORTH NODE: Friction continues from significant activity in Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius. You might feel a vague sense of irritation or impatience, but pay attention to opportunities that arise from “nowhere.” Mars in Gemini sextiles your North Node and offers subtle, yet strong support. Solutions to your challenges don’t always scream for attention, but they do arrive. A combination of hard work, passion and divine dispensation makes this quarter highly productive. Your financial situation could change for the better as your ships come into harbor. Stay grounded and tapped into your radiant heart. It will lead you well.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 could shatter grand illusions and New Age platitudes. If you find your faith shaken, take time to ground yourself in daily tasks and rituals. Tend to your health, your finances and your worldview. When the bigger picture stops making sense, drop into the details. Gather information and see how things begin to fit together. Resist the urge to generalize too fast or to skip over ugly facts and figures. When you face “the worst case scenario,” you find tremendous strength. If you orient your mind towards service, you’ll discover silver linings to everything you thought you lost. Beware of alcohol, sugar and drugs. You’ll make better decisions without their influence.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: October brings opportunities for love, romance and teamwork. Connections offer greater satisfaction and security than forging ahead on your own. December’s Capricorn energies square your nodal axis, creating productive friction. Pay attention to insights about your own inner conflicts, then aim for harmony inside and out. Take time to relax and retreat when needed. The Universe operates in its own timing. You can position yourself well for its arrival, but you can’t rush destiny. Whenever you feel impatient, look for and create more beauty. Focus on relationships with those walking similar paths.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 brings Eclipse Season to your nodal axis. The October 25 New Moon in Scorpio Solar Eclipse conjuncts Venus to bring extra blessings to Scorpio North Node natives. An extended passage of Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio highlights destined revelations about your identity, relationships, self-esteem and worldview. You’ll find deep insights into subconscious motivations and how things work. The Great Mystery tips its hand to you. The November 8 Full Moon in Taurus Lunar Eclipse helps you to release old things standing in the way of your happiness.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Mars in Gemini stirs things up by activating your South Node sign. You might feel overwhelmed by too many details, distractions and obligations. When in doubt, take the higher, broader view. You can’t be all things to everyone. Find what you love and stick to it, even if that means hard work and a period of apprenticeship. Don’t scatter your energies. You succeed by taking things to their biggest and brightest conclusion. In November, the Sun, Mercury and Venus enter your North Node sign, bringing powerful, destiny aligned encounters. The November 23 New Moon in Sagittarius allows you to realign and shine.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 brings a sense of karmic balance and success after a long, tricky journey. You feel more sovereign, more grounded and others recognize your accomplishments. December lights up your North Node sign, especially around the time of the December 23 New Moon in Capricorn. At the end of December, Mercury stations retrograde in Capricorn, so prepare to finish things ahead of the 29th, or expect some major reworkings of destiny level projects and structures. You’ll know whether to finish or await this natural time of review. Just pay attention to which doors open and which ones seem difficult or impossible to enter.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: The Saturn-Uranus Square from October 3-6 affects Aquarius North Node natives more than most, because Saturn and Uranus co-rule your sign. When in doubt, you’ll need to lean more towards group harmony and innovation, rather than a “my way or the highway” attitude. With Saturn traversing your sign since December 2017, you may have felt delayed gratification or constriction. Saturn stations direct on October 23, bringing forward momentum as he moves through the rest of Aquarius before entering Pisces on March 7, 2023. Saturn’s not the most popular, but he does troubleshoot for success. Use this time to build a strong foundation for your future.

PISCES NORTH NODE: This is an important quarter for you. Mars squares your nodal axis as he crisscrosses Gemini. This tension creates opportunities that help you to realign with your soul’s true north. You might feel tempted to go into your mind, trying to figure out everything on the mental level, but you’ll find inspiration and grace by tending to your emotions and spirituality. Calm the stormy seas, commit to a glorious Mystery, and allow yourself to retreat from worldly cares. You have nothing to be ashamed of, Pisces. Perfection’s not the goal anymore. Peace, harmony, grace, beauty and unconditional compassion are. Your sign’s ruler, Neptune, stations direct on December 3. If things have felt surreal and slow, don’t worry. Something big is moving in your favor.

  1. Loved this deeply in-depth analysis Laura… So many things I feel in quick succession are going to hit us one after the other.. The financial is already beginning here in the UK today a Black Monday for many as the Pound plummets against the Dollar…. Just the beginning of things…
    Many more surprises to come in October… and the Red leaves fall to the ground and the Solar Eclipse I am sure will also hold great impact..
    Lots of changes in the mix… But overall Laura I am very optimistic… Even though it may seem chaotic for a while and confusing and people will feel anger rising as what we have been ignorant of , we now have to face..
    All has to unfold to cleanse and clear..

    Many thanks dearest Laura for all of the hard work you put into these posts.. ❤ Much love your way ❤

    • You’re welcome, and thank you, Sue! I just wrote the October 25 Solar Eclipse post yesterday. It’s in the queue, and yes, very intense! I, too, feel optimistic, although I know challenges will face everyone, to varying degrees. Overall, I keep seeing how bad things COULD have been but aren’t, and I feel so grateful for how things continue to unfold. Some people will feel very upset, but compared to what individuals and the collective COULD have experienced, it all seems blessed. Much love to you, too! ❤



      • I totally agree with you Laura what was planned to a good extent hasn’t. Andxwe both understand it could have been 10 times worse.
        It’s goingvto get very uncomfortable for many, but it’s unfolding quickly now. Andcwveb we who have been aware for a long long while will needvto keep our balance.
        Much love and thank you for all you share.

        You are a constant beacon of light. 💕💖💕🙏

  2. Our choices will be YUGE over the next couple months. I’m especially looking forward to Mars retrograde. Let the games begin!

  3. […] This latest portal was actually commissioned before the Queen of Wands Imbolc Portal, way back on April 8, 2021! As I’ve shared before, these portals have their own process and timing, which always seems perfect in retrospect. I checked transits for the original email requesting a portal, and the Midheaven (top of the chart/career/public life) of that moment was 19°08′ Taurus, less than one degree ahead of Uranus during this final Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus event, most exact from October 3-6, 2022. […]



  4. What a fascinating, compelling, emotion charged month ahead we have in store for us. Thank you Laura for this thorough and in-depth look at October. I was lead here by Sue’s post that I’m yet to finish reading!
    I’m going through massive changes in my life with so many decisions looming and so much instability and uncertainty around the corner but I hold faith over fear. And I feel guided by my intuition though I have to say the last few weeks has been particularly testing. I have a feeling I’ll read this again as the month unfolds and more challenges lie ahead. Much love and gratitude from Australia. ❤️🙏
