This is the week we are all testing the waters of our new focus, location, work, schools, and other creative endeavors. It’s kind of like a stop and start week. Things may get off to a good start, and then fail. Everyone has to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and start all over again. The thing is, don’t be afraid to try new things with a new approach because that is the only way a new road can be found. The moon is in Sagittarius until early Tuesday morning. This supports philosophical discussions, the desire to travel, getting into nature, and opening to generosity.
Monday can be a confusing day when Neptune squares the Moon and opposes the Sun. The resulting mental fog could drain away your energy and get up and go, as witnessed by the lunar square of Mars; Tuesday evening, warrior Mars moves into Libra until October 30th. This is not a comfortable combination for aggressive Mars. Libra is a sign of diplomacy and grace. Mars likes to push through to the goal, and don’t get in his way. Be a peaceful warrior and practice assertive diplomacy. Take action to create greater beauty into your life.
The bewilderment continues during Mercury’s lunar square on Wednesday , but a sense of purpose , determination, and confidence manifests on Thursday when the Moon meets Pluto in Capricorn; both planets are sending out an uplifting trine to the Sun in Virgo.
On Thursday, the Moon moves into friendly Aquarius through Saturday morning. Aquarius is bored with the same old stuff, so try new activities and meet new people. The Moon also makes a trine to Mars that same day making this the most productive time of the workweek. Become a work-a-holic over this time period and try to schedule as much as possible in this productive time period.
Thursday evening has the Sun trine Pluto. This harmonious aspect helps you express your core life force needs and values at a deep level. Combined with the Aquarius moon, you can have a light-hearted discussion of deeper topics, perhaps at a new restaurant or someplace you have been wanting to check out.
It’s best not to do this too late on Thursday evening because Venus makes a challenge to Saturn into early Friday, making this energy come to a grinding halt. The fixed sign T square between the Moon conjunct Saturn, with Venus in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus makes everyone at odds at to how to do things, making a time when nothing really gets done. Possible manifestations are feeling tired if you stay out too late or concerns over the budget if you choose too expensive of a meeting place.
The Moon moves into psychic Pisces on Saturday afternoon, an a happier outlook arrives for the weekend. The Moon conjuncts big-hearted Jupiter, right after in trines Mercury, suggesting a good night for a movie or music.
Sunday a gentle Moon in Pisces trining Venus in Scorpio, making it a loving day. It’s a great day for heart-to-heart talks or perhaps doing some volunteer work. Then, in the evening, you will need to rest up for a very busy week ahead.
