We are excited to welcome Daily Success Guide astrologer Terry Lamb to the new Planetary Overview section, which replaces the Astro Overview formerly written by Boots Hart, who has decided to move on. Welcome, Terry!
October brings forward a new energy pattern, like turning a corner to find ourselves in an entirely different landscape. By the end of day on October 6, we will see four planets change sign and one turn retrograde. This is a lot to take in, especially when one of these planets is Saturn, and when its change comes after such a dramatic series of events.
Although our current situation started at least two years ago, its immediate source can be found in events since mid-May, especially those in September.
September was a tumultuous month, with the opportunity for long-awaited and profound change.

Much of this has been focused externally, through our interactions and agreements with others.
Now the energy goes underground, into our private and intimate circumstances. situations. This is about how to deal with the need for change in the situations where we find ourselves feeling most vulnerable, from the bedroom to the boardroom. The question is, how do we introduce needed change in a situation where a web of complication makes transformation a messy prospect? How do we do it without harming ourselves or others? How can we bear the emotional pain?
In the next 2+ years, we’ll be dealing with the situations that have been super-glued into our lives. Their unpleasant aspects suddenly become….The rest of Terry’s wonderful astrological overview is available instantly with a Premium Forecast Package, only pennies per day, check it out now!
