Tip of the Week:
Due to the blend of planetary influences, we invariably experience the influence of the themes of several signs activated by the planets there at any given time. Currently, in this Libra time cycle, Mars is reinforcing its expression lending a very noticeable edge. Meanwhile, Mercury and Venus are both in Scorpio adding two kinds of hot sauce to the soup. Venus is extra strong because it is the ruling planet for Libra. Yet, Mercury too is extra potent because it has entered its slowdown phase as it approaches its station, which means it appears to stop, just prior to turning retrograde (Oct 31 – Nov 20). This will manifest as people becoming more skeptical (Scorpio) and determined to deepen their investigations to decipher deeper truths from popular opinions and convictions. Especially with Neptune in Pisces these days, which in its lower expression manifests as mass deception, the current status of polarized opinions stimulated by social media especially are likely to shift and change.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Deep exchanges on relationships could swing either way in terms of passion and pain. It is said we only truly know something when we experience its extremes and you are in a position to know things better. Knowing others better is also featured and circumstances are leading you to see through appearances and outer expressions.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Creating a whole new quality of balance in your life is the central theme. It includes understanding and breaking free from inherited patterns and unconsciously deferring to tradition. A creative rebirth process is implied. Refinement, beauty and a new quality of low are all top priorities. Think ‘transformation’ for best results.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Playing with ideas and entertaining deeper realities are leaving a sweet and sour flavor in your mouth. The scales have been tilted to this heavier theme focus for almost two weeks now. Don’t expect it to go away, either. The deep end of this story is linked to Scorpio and it will not relent soon. Positively, you are not alone in this complex.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Sometimes our greatest realizations and best creative works are activated by sad, sober and depressing experiences. This can have a way of making us both more lucidly aware and numb simultaneously. Yet, if you take the opportunity to express your feelings you will realize that you are that much more in touch emotionally.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Many thoughts and ideas are running through your mind ranging from the deep and extending to the wide. In some respects, you feel inspired to purge and purify. This can amount to cleaning in the corners and/or removing the tarnish and restoring the shine. This process will continue well into November. So avoid trying to escape and face and embrace it.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Investments of time and energy for the sake of increasing returns are squarely on your mind. You are open to new strategies and approaches. You want and perhaps need the impact to be deeper and more pointed than you have for a while. Hopefully, this focus is not directed at others but at improving your own situation.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Looking back over just the past few weeks, you are probably noticing that you have entered new territory. Positively, you have identified where and how you can stimulate more and/or better streams of income. At worst, you feel like you are in a rut and have been for a while. In some respects, you have to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway.’
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Changes on relationship fronts rumble on. Hopefully, you have been balancing inner work with outer focus and experimentation because this cycle will end this week and hasten your pace. There are indications that you have been taking a steady, deliberate approach to feel more confident. This is likely linked to securing your position somehow.
Sagittarius (Nov 22–Dec 21)
Circumstances of late are urging you to break through somehow. This task, however, requires less communication and social exchange and more inner focus. As well, it demands that you give more than you might usually. Yet, you may also feel needier than you have in some time. It is a rather complex equation that requires you to meet in like manner.
Capricorn (Dec 22–Jan 19)
Mergers and acquisitions of some kind are indicated. This process began a few weeks ago. The scale could be small or large, as size does not matter. It is the core principles at play that are most prominent and important. Reaching out and engaging others assertively yet respectfully is the ideal balance. Invariably, you want more of something.
Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 19)
As you cast your vision to encompass a wider and clearer view of the future, a sense of determination regarding practical achievements is increased. This includes obtaining skills and tools even though you don’t really feel like it. Yet, for the sake of security, or at least a solid back-up plan you are willing to make the extra efforts.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Do you know where you are going? Now is a good time to make sure. As Mercury slows and then when it turns retrograde in a couple of weeks, you will be happy you got a pretty good sense of your bearings. With your ambitions on the rise and, along with them, your determination to make the extra efforts necessary, you are probably in good form.
