Week of October 25th to November 2nd, 2009
Air, Fire, Water and Earth
The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
This week brings a real relief for you Air Signs. You will be glad to know Saturn will be moving out of Virgo and into Libra. Over the weeks and months ahead you will begin to feel quite liberated from all the hassle and many problems you have had to fight over the past two and a half years. Life has not been easy – but now things are certainly going to be looking up. As Saturn begins the process of moving into Libra, you may be very eager to take up a course of study that will improve your skill set. You may decide to go back to school and get a degree or other vital qualification. You will benefit greatly from doing so, especially when Saturn moves through your chart in an Air Sign over the coming years. However, your career is in focus this week with the Sun in Scorpio and Mercury joining the fun from Wednesday on. A decision you make midweek could have far-reaching consequences. Wednesday is also the best day for going on a short break or starting a mini-vacation—you will have a wonderful time. You may find yourself in conflict with friends and associates over certain issues—but it will pass. Don’t worry! Powerful forces are at work this week as Saturn changes signs. Saturn is linked with time and even seems to slow down time and focus your attention very powerfully. There is no way to escape the lessons that you need to learn from this Father planet. You may find your confidence tested time and time again. If you’ve been true to yourself, and living your life with integrity, you may not have too many problems; but you may begin to notice consequences if you’ve been living a lie in any sense. This lack of confidence may be felt in your love life or business affairs, and it’s something you’re going to want to work on. You’ll never have a problem again once you master this. Mercury and the Sun in Scorpio highlight your health and current job. You may need to gather information, applying a detective-like approach in order to get the whole picture. Wednesday may be the best day for warm and wonderful social occasions. Have fun!
Your Love Week – Air Signs:
The week will start off with a spoonful of last week’s sugar, Air Signs, brought to you courtesy of the emotional Moon in Pisces. Translated, that means that everyone you cross paths with will be in as freewheeling a mood as you are all the time, and won’t that be fun? If you’re attached, you can count on your sweetheart to be a lot more spontaneous than usual, even if that’s never been an issue. If you’re single, prepare to meet someone who’ll amaze even you at what they’re willing to do in public, regardless of the consequences. Speaking of amour you’ve got an entire week full of romance looking right at you. Your only mission (if you want to bring a certain someone closer to you, and if you’re as smart as everyone says you are, you’ll definitely choose to accept it) is to enjoy Halloween with the partner of your choice. It really doesn’t sound all that terrible or all that hard, does it? So here’s your path: if you’ve been together for a while, consider planning it so that your costumes match. It will make your partner happy, which, of course, will make you happy. On Wednesday and Thursday you two may even get into trouble, not legal, of course, but because your companions aren’t quite as amused by your antics as you are. Of course, if they’re only companions and not partners, why worry? Let it fly and have some fun. Now, let’s talk about the rest of the week, before Saturday arrives, that is. On Thursday serious Saturn will enter Libra for a two-and-a-half-year stay. This responsible, respectable planet will be wearing Libra for the duration, and Libra loves nothing more than one-to-one relationships. In a nutshell, you’re about to enter a phase that will either be wonderful for you and your current partner or quite inspiring for you when it comes to finding someone new. Either way, it’s going to be fun, but you’ll need to be serious about it. Think of it as a warm-up for Saturday, when Halloween will tempt all of us to let loose and be someone we never thought we could be! Ready—set–go!
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Mercury will join the Sun on Wednesday, encouraging discussion of intense situations. Issues that have been pushed beneath the surface are likely to come up in order to be resolved. You can do this two ways: you can either talk from the heart and keep the flow of communication open, or you can close off and hang your ego out to dry. The first may bring a miracle; the second will almost certainly make things worse. The choice is yours as Mercury sextiles Pluto. You may need to make an important health or lifestyle decision. There is a lovely aspect midweek, when Venus connects with Jupiter, making this the best day for social outings, meetings, and general get-togethers. On Thursday, Saturn moves into Libra. You’re about to get a taste of things to come while also getting relief from your money troubles. In its new position, you may want to structure your thoughts by writing a book or creating a series of talks. All of the pressure you’ve been under at work is now going to lessen. This week is the beginning of Saturn’s process of changing signs. It moves into Libra for good in June of 2010. You’ll notice a definite lessening of pressure. In Libra you may decide to take a look at your long-term goals and change any that no longer resonate with you. Friendships will be tested; the strong ones will stay strong while the problematic ones may drop away. It’s a time of change. You may tire of certain groups and feel drawn to joining others that are more suitable to your current needs. A focus on the mysterious may encourage a desire to increase your spiritual practices. Perhaps you’ll feel an urge to do more yoga or meditation. You may find one or two challenges in your life quite extreme, but with patience and an open heart you’ll be able to resolve them in such a way that they won’t return. You may clash with family members later in the week. Try to find a compromise.
Your Love Week – Fire Signs:
With Mars now holding court in Leo, a fiery, famously charismatic sign, there’s really not much you can do about the magnetic appeal you’ll wield over others over during the coming week, Fire Signs. What you can do is excuse yourself if you see that someone you’re really not interested in is following you around with “that look” in his or her eyes, calling too much, or e-mailing too often. You know what we’re talking about here and it’s only fair that you don’t encourage the person. When it comes to the person who really is getting your blood flowing, however, pull out all the stops and make sure he or she knows exactly how you feel. On Wednesday Mercury in sexy Scorpio will join in the fun. Since Scorpio is one of the signs that most loves disguises, you two really should get your costumes together now, whether you’re buying them or creating them. On Thursday, you two really should be making plans for Halloween. Mercury in Scorpio will make this a wonderfully exotic weekend. Your only job will be to come up with costumes that reflect how wonderfully you two are getting along, which really doesn’t sound like much of a job, does it? Speaking of fun you may think that you’ve had all you can stand right now, since you’re probably tired from last weekend, but with Halloween coming up, one of your favorite holidays, the fun is far from over. You’ll be making plans all week for your costume, well, yours and your sweetheart’s. That way by Saturday, you’ll be ready to make your appearance. The Moon in red-hot Aries will be more than happy to make you two the stars of the show. Enter a costume contest. What’s the worst that can happen? You’ll both definitely earn your place in the spotlight, and, with the Universe on your side, you just might win! Of course, as per usual, if you don’t play, you’ll never know.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Expect another turn of the spiral, as the Sun in Scorpio is joined by Mercury, on Wednesday, placing the emphasis on adventure. Although you may be thinking of getting away from it all, the kind of adventures that you are more likely to embark upon may be those that encourage you to journey within. Meditations of all kinds may provide the starting point, which will enable you to enter deeply into your interior life and explore your inner environment. This is a good time to let go of old beliefs that no longer support you, and to embrace those that are more life enhancing. The other important news is that Saturn moves into Libra. As Libra is an Air Sign you may find you feel less burdened than you have over the previous two years while Saturn was in Virgo. But you are going to have to learn how to be fearless if you want to succeed. You will find that issues associated with your joint financial affairs, sex, death, and transformation are going to come to the surface. You have a wonderful opportunity to work on these in such a way that this transit could be the best thing that has ever happened to you. It all depends on your perspective. Mercury moves into Scorpio on Wednesday, giving you Water Signs that extra-special edge in both personal and business activities. Your thoughts are likely to be focused and intense, and you won’t easily change your mind. If you’ve made a decision, you’ll see it through to the end, no matter what the result. True to your nature, you’re likely to be a lot more suspicious of others and unwilling to trust them too easily. As Saturn moves more deeply into Libra you may experience situations that seem to appear out of the blue. Some of them may seem to have karmic overtones. You’ll be able to tell these from other experiences, since they’ll have an unmistakable quality about them. It’s under this kind of influence that you could meet a potential Soul Mate. Again, you’ll know them when you see them. The feeling will be quite unmistakable. Jupiter and Neptune continue to move close together. You still have plenty of opportunities to find the ideal home and relocate, if necessary. Your love life will be made spicier by a passionate meeting. Be ready for something special.
Your Love Week – Water Signs:
Speaking of going out to play, Water Signs, well, it’s time. To start with, Halloween is coming, and if anyone loves disguises, it’s you. In fact, you’ll probably be working on your costume for most of the week, if not for the entire week. As of Wednesday, in fact, when the emotional Moon (who’s also pretty darned good at disguises) sets off for the sign of Pisces, you Water Signs will be digging around in your closet, pulling out your favorite costumes, or patrolling the local thrift stores to find exactly what you want to make your outfit for the weekend perfect. It’s time to party in that special way that you only indulge in once a year. Pluto is the lord of darkness, the heavens’ equivalent of Darth Vader, so obviously, he’s in charge of Halloween and you can’t help but love every minute of it. You get a little tingle that runs up and down your spine when this holiday rolls around, and your sweetheart feels it, too. The fun will start long before the weekend, though. In fact, when thoughtful Mercury enters Scorpio, you’ll start thinking about deep, dark, intense things, emotional things. It would be nice to get all that cleared away quickly to make room for some fun this weekend, but you don’t do anything quickly, and the Sun will contact red-hot Mars during the wee hours of Thursday morning. If you wake up on Thursday with an intense mission on your mind, don’t play games. Get it done. That way you’ll have all the emotional issues done when the weekend arrives and be ready for some serious, scary fun! If you’re attached, you two will be on a singular mission: to win a prize, wherever you end up on Saturday. Don’t tell anyone, but if you put some effort into it, you two will be an absolute shoe-in. You’ll also win the “Most Passionate Couple” award on Sunday, when Mercury in intense Scorpio meets up with red-hot Mars. Talk about a nice way to relax after a busy week!
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
As Mercury joins the Sun in Scorpio on Wednesday, Earth Signs, your thoughts may turn to investigating issues, or even people, and seeing what you come up with. Don’t become too defensive or paranoid as a result of your discoveries. Be prepared to give others the benefit of the doubt. You may also need to make a big decision or hold a conversation that could initiate a few interesting changes. A wonderful aspect between Venus and Mercury on the same day may bring about a chance for a lucrative deal or contract. The money is certainly going to come in from somewhere. This is just as well, as Saturn will move into Libra on Thursday and begin the process of changing signs. You’re about to get a taste of what is to come, which means that you need to be prepared to take full responsibility for your finances. It’s a good idea to create a budget that gives you some flexibility but that also allows you to save something for a rainy day. Mars is currently stirring things up, so you may face a conflict that could bring an interesting dilemma your way. Your focus is going to change over the weeks and months ahead. Saturn is known for its ability to test your levels of responsibility in the area concerned. If you’ve been blatantly ignoring your health and wellbeing, eating the wrong foods and generally refusing to exercise, then you may begin to experience some physical symptoms or discomfort. This will encourage you to be better about looking after yourself. At work you may be under pressure with more deadlines, tasks, and projects allotted to you. You’ll move through this year more easily if you balance your life and overall lifestyle and take good care of yourself. There’s also a focus on your relationship this week with Mercury and the Sun in the sexy sign of Scorpio. This is a good time to talk over issues with your lover and find a way to resolve ongoing difficulties. There may be more passion and intensity in your love life than there has been for some time. Even your conversations will be deeper. Make time to lighten up and smile, too.
Your Love Week – Earth Signs:
Most people don’t understand how very much you enjoy Halloween, Earth Signs, but it’s a good bet that your partner does. In fact, as of Wednesday, when Mercury will follow the Sun into the sign of Scorpio, you two will likely begin your plans for the weekend, if you haven’t already put them in motion. Two of the heavens’ most active planets will be in Scorpio at the time, a very sexy sign that also happens to rule all those things that scare us in only the most pleasant of ways. So if you’re still deciding what to wear, why not choose along those lines? If you’re single, don’t expect that condition to last forever or even through the weekend, unless you want it to, that is. Here’s another week full of delightful romance for you, brought to you courtesy of a heavenly crew full of sexy, intimacy-loving Scorpio planets. The Sun has been there since last week when he set up shop for a full month. But this week, the Sun’s followed into that passionate, sexy sign by chatty, sociable Mercury, who will make you the center of attention every time you utter a single syllable. This pair can’t help but put you in the spotlight – although it will likely only be a spotlight built for two – and you’re going to love every minute of it, thanks to the person with whom you’ll be sharing the glow of the footlights. And speaking of your partner, whether the relationship is brand new or you’ve been together for decades, the influence of those two planets will direct every iota of your being in his or her direction, which obviously will be a very, very good thing in their not-so-humble opinion. If they want to thank you, think fast. On Wednesday the Moon will enter Pisces, where she’ll stay until Friday. In the meantime, all your encounters will be extremely emotional. If there’s someone out there you’re interested in, don’t be shy about letting him or her know. Halloween evening, later on, after the kids leave, turn out the lights, snuggle up in front of the TV or stereo, unless, of course, you two are in the mood to dress up and go out to play for Halloween. Oh, and on Sunday a friend may arrive from a distance. Welcome him or her, but stay detached enough so that anyone near and dear to you doesn’t become jealous.
