Holy shit, bears are fucked. Truly.
The mundane astrology itself (general transits happening, aside from their relation to natal charts) is not incredibly great early on, but once we get rolling into the second half of the month, it picks up steam.
The 1st has a Venus-Pluto square, highlighting manipulative relationship dynamics, while the 5th-10th have the Sun conjunct Mars in Libra, indicative of passive aggression. However, this does not look directly financial.
The New Moon in Libra is conjunct Mars, which is not too great for our personal lives, but the general aspects for BTC and ETH from the planets around this time do look favorable in their own right. The Sun-Mercury cazimi conjunction in Libra on the 9th likely will be a moment of clarity amidst the relationship confusion.
Saturn stations direct in Aquarius on the 11th. The planet of restriction and challenge now moving forward in the zodiac indicates new opportunities for maturity and responsibility rather than going back to fix the old that we may have been careless around.
The 16th-18th has another set of obstacles with the Sun square Pluto, but the 18th also has a turn for the better, with both Mercury and Jupiter stationing direct. Mercury represents daily communication, and Jupiter represents larger wisdom and progress. Both stationing direct symbolize moving forward with day-to-day intellectual efforts and also much grander plans.
This, along with the 20th being a Full Moon in Aries that should mark a crypto market-wide uptrend, makes me cautiously bullish for the end of October.
I will say, the 20th-23rd have Mars square Pluto, which indicates manipulative tendencies, possibly with prices in the crypto market, and the 26th-28th has Venus square Neptune, which can be both delusionally dreamy and nightmarish.
Then the 29th-30th have the Sun square Saturn, which is a more cautious, unfavorable period. However, these tensions reflect larger collective themes and are not specific to Bitcoin or the other assets in the crypto market, as we will discuss below.

There are two important transits toning this month for Bitcoin: firstly, Jupiter within 1º of BTC Neptune in Aquarius, which stations direct on the 18th. The planet of abundance, hovering around Neptune, the planet of excess or dreams in BItcoin’s chart, is interestingly both delusional and bullish. When it stations direct, I am especially hopeful for an uptrend.
This is alongside Uranus Retrograde in Taurus trine BTC Sun in Capricorn. Uranus is volatility, and trines are harmonious aspects between two planets of the same element. This is a supportive aspect, happening within 1º, for the entire month, as a background support.
There should be the usual uptrend from the Full Moon on September 20th-ish until the New Moon on October 6th. However, Mars in Libra square BTC Sun in Capricorn on the 5th is problematic, perhaps causing the downtrend to happen a day early. The New Moon in Libra on the 6th is exactly square BTC Sun in Capricorn, which is very tense. Could mean the pump into the New Moon is nice, but a dump is sharp afterwards.
Though the bearish moon phase should begin after the 6th, there are some decent intraday aspects, such as Venus in Scorpio sextile BTC Jupiter in Capricorn on the 6th and Venus in Sagittarius sextile BTC Mercury in Aquarius 9th. It probably doesn’t counter the bearish moon phase, but they are good days to look for some decent price action within that larger trend.
The 11th has Mercury Retrograde in Libra square BTC Sun in Capricorn, unfavorable, but also Venus in Sagittarius trine BTC Moon in Aries, which is really favorable. A mixed day overall, so not major conclusion there besides two interesting aspects. Saturn stationing direct that day is good for general markets, however.
Mid-months starts some really favorable aspects, with the Sun in Libra trine BTC Neptune in Aquarius on the 15th and Mars in Libra trine BTC Neptune in Aquarius on the 18th. These could even out a downtrend or begin to frontrun the lunar phase. I cautiously lean more towards countering the downtrend rather than being too early to change the moon phase momentum.
The 18th is also the day both Mercury and Jupiter stationing direct, which I look forward to for general market sentiment improving. Though this has never happened in quite this way in Bitcoin’s history, I predict it will be highly supportive of the upward moon phase beginning two days after.
The Full Moon in Aries on the 20th is Full Moon in Aries within a 2º square to BTC Jupiter in Capricorn, which is a very bullish aspect. This local bottom could initiate a launchpad upward, with the moon phase turning bullish, and Mercury and Jupiter now direct in their zodiacal motion.
The 2nd has the Sun in Libra square BTC Jupiter in Capricorn, and the 24th has the Sun in Scorpio sextile BTC Pluto in Capricorn. Both favorable. The 24th does also have Mercury in Libra square BTC Sun in Capricorn, which isn’t too great, but does not outweigh the bullish counterpoints in my opinion. The 25th then has Venus in Sagittarius square BTC Uranus in Pisces. With Venus being a favorable planet and Uranus indicating volatility or sudden price moves, I am a bit cautious of them in this square aspect of tension. It could be upward volatility, though I recommend caution on this day overall. Could be massively bullish, but it’s more surprising than it is inherently bullish.
I love the 28th. We have the Sun in Scorpio sextile BTC Mars in Capricorn, which is very bullish, and Venus in Sagittarius sextile BTC Neptune in Aquarius, another aspect of favorability. We also have Jupiter in Aquarius exactly conjunct BTC Neptune in Aquarius. So while this aspect is very close throughout the month, it is exact on the 28th, indicating euphoria. I aim to not get too ahead of myself, but the very end of October could be very, very favorable.
Mars in Libra square BTC Jupiter in Capricorn on the 29th is mixing an unfavorable planetary transit with a positive planet in the BTC chart, which could be a day for a small pullback after the pump on the 28th. I’m not too concerned, but I don’t like it overall, so I am cautious for this day.

Contrary to BTC, ETH does have a month-long aspect of Saturn opposing its Sun within 1º. It will start retrograde, station direct on the 11th, and then exactly oppose ETH Sun on the 27th. Saturn is a planet of restriction and challenge, but it has been very close to the ETH Sun for several months, so I am unsure if this will play out bearishly or be in the background unnoticed. I am not too concerned for the time being. 11th-onward, with Saturn now direct, should be supportive overall for the weeks to come, as I mentioned earlier.
I like what I see from the 1st to the 4th. The 1st has Venus in Scorpio trine ETH Mars in Cancer, the 3rd has Venus in Scorpio sextile ETH Moon in Capricorn, and the 4th has Venus in Scorpio square ETH Jupiter in Leo. These are all great Venus aspects that look like a good run-up to the New Moon on the 6th.
The day before the New Moon, on September 5th, there are some mixed indications. Venus conjunct ETH Saturn in Scorpio could be price hitting resistance and consolidating there. Venus is favorable, but Saturn tends to represent limits. The 5th then has 5th Mercury Retrograde in Libra opposite ETH Uranus in Aries, and with Mercury being news and Uranus being volatile, shocking events, there could be some strange headlines and resulting price action that day. Mars in Libra square ETH Pluto in Capricorn that day is largely unfavorable. Similar to BTC, I’m cautious for the bullish moon phase into the New Moon to end possibly one day early, with the downtrend starting the 5th-onward. I will be cautiously managing my positions during this time as a result.
The New Moon, right by Mars, on the 6th is sextile ETH Mercury within 1º, which is nice, though Mars square ETH Pluto within 1º still on this day doesn’t look great. Down we go from here, most likely.
The 7th has nice intraday aspects, with Venus in Sagittarius square ETH Venus in Virgo and the Sun in Libra sextile ETH Mercury in Leo. However, as I’ve begun to learn, bullish intraday aspects can be decent for price action but not for overall momentum to counter a bearish moon phase from New to Full Moon. Following that, Mercury Retrograde in Libra sextile ETH Mercury in Leo on the 11th is also lightly favorable.
The 13th-15th is a bit strange. The 13th holds the Sun in Libra opposite ETH Uranus in Aries, which could be a volatile day with that Uranus aspect, and the 15th has Venus in Sagittarius square ETH Neptune in Pisces, a euphorically bullish indicator. However, still in the bearish moon phase, as I keep reiterating as to not confuse bullish intraday with overall downward momentum, probably doesn’t mean we reverse upward quite yet.
The 16th has Mars in Libra opposite ETH Uranus in Aries, which definitely looks very volatile, and the Sun in Libra square ETH Mars in Cancer, which doesn’t look too favorable. Caution on the 16th.
The Full Moon in Aries on the 20th is exactly trine ETH Jupiter in Leo, and Mars in Libra on that day is exactly square ETH Mars in Cancer. So while the New Moon itself is bullish, that Mars-Mars square is a yikes. Perhaps the 20th itself is still difficult before a sharp uptrend just following. However, also on that day, Venus in Sagittarius trine ETH Mercury in Leo is supportive, so a sharp correction could be retraced as we enter the bullish moon phase.
The 23rd has the Sun in Scorpio sextile ETH Venus in Leo, which is favorable, but also Mars in Libra square ETH Moon in Capricorn, which is not favorable to see. Being a mixed day, I’m cautious on the 23rd.
On the 24th, Mercury in Libra squares ETH Pluto in Capricorn, which looks like some absurd or troubling news. However, on the 25th, Mercury in Libra sextiles ETH Mercury in Leo, and on the 26th, Venus in Sagittarius trines ETH Uranus in Aries while Mars in Libra sextiles ETH Jupiter in Leo, two favorables that reinforce the bullish moon phase.
On the 27th, Saturn in Aquarius exactly opposes ETH Sun in Leo. This month-long bearish background aspect may not be particularly strong on this exact day, but I will be cautious to be sure. By now, Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn direct should be supportive for the entire market.
The month ends with Mars in Scorpio sextile ETH Venus in Virgo, which is favorable and bullish. Up until the November New Moon.
