STARGAZING – YOUR WEEKLY FORECAST
Week of Oct. 24th – Oct. 30, 2011
The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Feeling under-appreciated or over-criticized can put you in a feisty mood this week. Hinting at what you want is unlikely to succeed. Venus in subtle Scorpio would prefer to give indirect signals rather than to be straightforward in expressing your needs. But, your desire to complete an important goal is fueled by a dynamic focus on career matters. If you know what you want, nothing can stop you from getting it. You have all the determination and enthusiasm you need. Your airy intellectual nature tends to rely a great deal on rational thinking. Logic is a great thing, yet the planetary patterns that dominate this week are much more about evoking emotions. If you apply reason to a relationship matter, you might fail to connect and understand what’s really going on. The New Moon on Wednesday is perfect for new beginnings of any kind, even the start of a contract. If you get caught up in red tape, don’t worry. Any frustration will soon pass. But Wednesday’s stressful square between cosmic lovers Mars and Venus indicate that staying quiet can leave you very dissatisfied. It’s better to be just a little pushy and deal with others’ discomfort in the moment than to remain silent and unhappy any longer. Mercury’s stressful square with combative Mars can trigger harsh words on Friday. However, the message is about improving yourself rather than complaining to others or resisting reasonable advice. Cleaning up your act is a great way to feel better about yourself and, at the same time, makes you more attractive to others. A get-together on Friday evening puts you in a magical mood. Over the weekend tune in to your own non-rational senses and you will recognize what you need to do. Silence can tell you so much more than words now, so give yourself the chance to listen.

You dislike messy situations, preferring to know exactly where you stand in any given situation. But this week’s celestial lineup means that you have every chance of beginning to understand the reason why your sugar honey hasn’t been quite straight with you. Rather than feel hurt, feel grateful that they have now had the courage to express the truth – which isn’t so bad after all. . Take time to do it right, and you will get it right!

Don’t look for quick solutions to restore faith in an ongoing alliance or to get a new one heading in a favorable direction. This never works with Earth Signs. Honesty and vulnerability are your allies in spite of the complications they arouse. Take the first step by opening your heart and you might be pleasantly surprised at what happens next.
