A timeline snapshot of major astro-events in October 2019.
The astro-events to watch this month
October 21: Progressed Mars square Sun and Saturn in the Mars cycle
October 25: Progressed Uranus semisextile Moon in the Uranus cycle
In the Aquarian Age chart…
In the Sun section of the Aquarian Age big power politics, national supremacy, nationalism, patriotism, racial superiority and imperialism are key drivers.
In the Pluto period of the Aquarian Age groups, disunity, coercion, intimidation, dictatorial control, threats, duress, wicked evil, criminal activity, inversion and misinformation are defining global trends.
In the Aquarian Age chart the equinox pointer is square progressed Pluto.
Progressed Mars is parallel progressed Pluto > peak power date is November 22, 2021. A high-discord aspect that forecasts escalating global tensions, a race to build bigger and better bombs, war, nuclear war, cyber attacks, violent crime, hate crime, sex crime, mass killings, gang violence, brutal enforcement, torture, kidnappings, crime fighting, accidents and fires.
On October 2 progressed Moon is inconjunct progressed Neptune > Neptune is the planet of chaos, confusion, inflation, oil, drugs, opioids and exaggeration > end date is October 30
October 21: progressed Moon trine progressed Sun starts > Sun is the planet of politics, world leaders, those in high office, nationalism and dominance > peak power date is November 20
Jupiter (higher prices) is square Neptune (oil, gas and drugs) > this aspect (perfect on September 21) will have some influence during October
Saturn is parallel Pluto > a drastic security situation; an economic slow-down > job losses and hardship for farmers; tariffs and economic sanctions; drastic weather events > storms, floods and droughts; security breaches; widespread fear, insecurity, misinformation, grief and mourning > peak power date is November 5
Jupiter (finances) is parallel Pluto (drastic action) > this aspect reached peak power on September 6 but will have some influence during October
Jupiter (optimism) is parallel Saturn (pessimism) > this aspect reached peak power on September 21 but will have some influence during October
October 27: Mars (aggressive action, strife, violence and disputation) is square Saturn (fear, safety measures, tariffs, storms and floods)
Newsmaker: Boris Johnson
His chart progressed to October 31, 2019
Progressed Midheaven (reputation and public standing) at 5 Virgo 45 in house 11 (parliament) is conjunction birth chart Uranus – radical moves, Brexit and the big change – and opposition (separation) birth chart Saturn – planet of loss, struggle, non-stop difficulties, true-blue conservatives and recession – in house 5.
Progressed Venus at 6 Cancer 35 in house 9 (trade and the courts) is sextile (opportunity) birth chart Uranus (unrest, strikes, protests and demonstrations) at 6 Virgo 31 in house 11.
Progressed Saturn at 2 Pisces 28R in house 5 (risk) is square (obstacle) birth chart Mars – planet of strife, haste and disputation – in house 8 (taxes and debt). Mars rules house 7 – the countries in the EU – and house 2 (Britain’s finances); and Saturn rules house 4 (Scotland and Ireland).
Progressed Neptune – the planet of schemes and confusion – at 15 Scorpio 09 in house 2 is opposition (separation) birth chart Jupiter – planet of finances – in house 8 (the EU’s finances). The (Mars, Jupiter-Neptune) discord influencing houses 2 and 8 is through the roof.
And progressed ascendant (the people) at 18S34 in house 2 is parallel progressed Pluto at 19N09 – planet of division and disunity.
Progressed Mercury – planet of talks and deals – at 16 Virgo 40 in house 12 (disappointment) is trine (luck) birth chart Jupiter (optimism) in house 8 so Johnson remains optimistic regarding the separation deal. But the progressed discord far outweighs the progressed harmony and Johnson runs out of luck when the Mercury-Jupiter trine aspect ends on March 1, 2020.
The birth time from his father in a letter – see Astro Databank – has probably been rounded off so its accuracy is uncertain.

Newsmaker: Justin Trudeau
His chart progressed to October 21, 2019
2019 has been an awful year for Trudeau.
Progressed Mercury in his chart at 18 Aquarius 12 in house 6 has been sextile birth chart Moon at 17 Aries 17 in house 8 and trine birth chart Uranus at 17 Libra 57 in house 2 activating their exact birth chart opposition aspect; and with progressed Midheaven at 15 Cancer 55 in house 11 semisquare (friction) birth chart Saturn at 00 Gemini 46R in house 10 (his reputation) and progressed ascendant at 13 Libra 03 in house 2 sesquisquare (agitation) birth chart Midheaven his popularity and public standing has fallen (Saturn).
On October 21 the progressed discord in his chart is high.
Progressed Mercury – planet of controversy – is semisquare (friction) birth chart Sun – planet of power and politics – at 3 Capricorn 39 in house 5.
Progressed Jupiter at 00 Capricorn 57 in house 4 is square (obstacle) birth chart Pluto at 1 Libra 39R in house 2; and progressed Venus at 1 Aries 47 in house 8 is square progressed Jupiter and opposition birth chart Pluto.
And progressed Mars at 00 Taurus 53 in house 9 is trine (luck) progressed Jupiter inn house 4 and he’ll need all the luck he can get to win the election on October 21. His chart doesn’t forecast victory.
Mercury, Venus and Saturn – the rulers of house 10 (his popularity and reputation) – are all involved in discordant progressed aspects.
Neptune dominates Trudeau’s chart and the Sun – planet of political leadership – has below average power – so he’s an idealistic, dreamer – a promoter of idealistic schemes – not a politician.
The birth data is from a news report in the Ottawa Citizen on December 28, 1971 as per Sy Scholfield on Astro Databank. It can be considered accurate and reliable.
