STARGAZING – YOUR WEEKLY FORECAST
Week of October 4—October 10, 2010
The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
The planets in Libra are awakening positive aspects of your Air Sign personality that have, up until now, lain dormant within you. You’re brimming with generosity and a new awareness of your partner that brings a new balance to your relationship. Mercury in Libra has your inner voice chattering away; be sure to listen. Only the planets in Scorpio throw an upset in the works. On Tuesday Mercury will join Saturn and the Sun in Libra, putting you in a great mood and inspiring you to take your life in a positive direction. For starters, on the job you don’t let a single opportunity pass you by, and you step into the spotlight to show off your talents every chance you get. You may also decide to get some extra training, which could be very useful to your career advancement. If you find yourself struggling, stop and ponder if your actions are well founded. Venus in Scorpio in particular, is turning up the sensual pressure and may make you uncomfortable. If you’re looking for love, your constantly transforming personality is attracting the people who are right for you. Retrograde Neptune is creating confusion in your love life. You’re attracted to someone but you hesitate to approach them, you’re afraid of being disappointed. But you could be passing up a chance to fall in love, so come out of your shell and take a risk! Couples, calm reigns under your roof and you enjoy quality moments alone together. The Libra planets dig something up from your past though. You’ll have old feelings to deal with, but with a new perspective. Also, if you’re in the mood for passion, you’ve got it.
Your Love Week—Air Signs:
A congregation of planets in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn provoke new thought processes, renewal and transformation. Saturn too is in Libra though, slowing down this whole process. Neptune retrograde opposite the Moon can lift your feet off the ground and make you lose touch with your sense of reality. You escape into your daydreams and live within them, protected from the harsher aspects of everyday living. This can cause a problem if you’re in a couple, because your partner will have the impression that you’re avoiding problems, or trying to create a distance between you. This is of course not the case but you will need to clarify and explain your need for alone time. If you’re single you’re perfectly happy fantasizing about love, rather than living it and risking a broken heart. You’re being asked to examine the way you look at love. Take a step back from your relationship, and think about independence within commitment, and breathing room within your union. If you’re looking for love, Neptune is still retrograde, making dating clarity hard to come by. But its trine to the planets in your Air Sign can bring an old flame back into your life. Can the magic be resurrected? Mercury gives you time to think it over. On the job, Venus and Mars are turning you into the office clown. Your bosses let it slide because they know you’re normally serious, but just the same, try not to push this too far.
The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Mars and Venus are stirring up negativity: your morale drops, your stress levels rise, and you may fall prey to insomnia. Your daily challenges become harder than usual to handle. The Moon in Leo at the beginning of the week forms an opposition to Neptune, which can cause fatigue for Fire Signs and unfortunately, bring a case of the blues. You tend to re-hash the past and see everything through grey-colored lenses, even if that isn’t your usual style. Your loved ones do everything possible to cheer you up, and one of them manages to say or do just the right thing to bring the smile back to your face. Retrograde Neptune is also causing interference within your love relationship. You’re suddenly uncomfortable with each other, and you each have trouble understanding the other. Try to focus on communication. Your high sensitivity causes trouble. You also want to be right at all costs and impose your point of view, and you may not do this with kindness. Beware because your other half may not take all this lying down. Singles, you tend to withdraw and that narrows down your chances of meeting someone, to practically zilch. There’s not much action on the love and dating horizon. Hang in there. On the job, be sure to take advantage of Mercury’s support now, because it’s getting ready to change signs. On a positive note, your financial situation is looking up thanks to Mercury, which is going to allow for a transaction that leans in your favor. An extraordinary opportunity for progress could come out of the blue. This is not the time to rest on your laurels; be sure to seize this chance or somebody else will!

The misunderstandings and frustrations multiply, and you’re forced to wait out the storm. You two have an issue from your past that needs careful handling. If you take the time to sort it out, some lovely planetary influences can help you form a wonderful new connection.
