We will be dealing less with big picture stuff and more with the ups and downs of our daily lives over the course of the week. Those adrenaline addicts among us will feel let down but for most folks living ordinary lives, this will come as a welcome break. I know I’m looking forward to it!
This week opens with Mercury in Scorpio opposing Jupiter in Taurus and closes with the Sun leaving fair minded, airy Libra for the mysterious depths of watery Scorpio. Expect hype and lots of it from the Mercury-Jupiter opposition. The loud noise will be coming from Jupiter due to the skeptical looks he’s getting from Mercury in crafty Scorpio. Mercury in Scorpio can be a very hard “sell” because it is one of the best at reading between the lines.
Cardinal signs everywhere (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) can relax some because even though the Moon in Cancer will be tweaked by the Libra planets, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, it will do so one at a time. Besides, Venus and Mercury are now both in Scorpio and simpatico with the sensitive Cancer Moon. Consequently your beloved Cancer family members and friends will be perking up and feeling less touchy!
There is an ethereal, romantic trine between the Sun in Libra and Neptune in Aquarius on 21 October. Get out your rose colored glasses and call your lover to set up a time to enjoy a little harmless fantasy interlude.
On Sunday, October 23, 2011 the Sun slips into Scorpio, joining Mercury and Venus. Where I live this change often marks the end of the beauties of autumn when the leaves begin to fall, baring the bones of the trees to an ever more wintery sky. It also means Halloween is just around the corner when the things that go bump in the night come out to play!
If you’re lucky, Aries, you will have an opportunity to consider what to do with some extra income this week. One thing you will have to deal with is home and family concerns. Ignoring those could put you in the dog house. LOL
Once you get an idea firmly planted in your head, Taurus, you can be tempted to convince others your way is the best way to go. Selling this to your partner, whether business or personal, will be challenging. Call it a draw if necessary.
It can be unsettling for someone who lives in their head as much as you do, Gemini, to realize you are tempted to go with your instincts now. It will work out fine! Friday is a wonderful day to spend time with your sweetheart.
The first half of the week may make you a little crabby, Cancer, but nothing compared to the past month or so. Take it easy and pamper yourself with a soothing bath. Hints of love and romance are in the air for you.
Business matters take priority the first of the week for you, Leo. Romance will be on your mind this weekend and Friday is by far and away the best time to either meet someone new or have a romantic date with your lover..
Your ability to size up the opposition is working quite well right now, Virgo. Not much gets by you normally and right now it’s as if you have x-ray vision. This trend will continue for awhile yet. A very pleasant weekend ahead for you too. Enjoy!
You will be able to go about your business feeling less burdened this week, Libra. After a rather hectic start, you may even feel like socializing some! Though by the weekend, time to yourself might look good. Kick back and relax.
Be gentle with your partner when you start dissecting their big plans, Scorpio. Work on giving them constructive criticism rather than being cutting and sarcastic. Some time alone on the weekend will revive you as a certain amount of solitude always does.
Talking to a health professional might be the best way to figure out the steps you need to take to improve your overall health, Sagittarius. How to do so and still live within your budget is all part of your master plan.
As long as you remember to keep your significant other in the loop, Capricorn, you will be fine. Discussing your hopes and dreams with them will increase the possibility of turning those into realities. Stay open to all sorts of possibilities, no matter how odd they sound.
Dealing with coworker’s moods, coming up with new ideas for advancing your career and still finding time for your partner is all part of the mix this week, Aquarius. Devote the first of the week to your coworkers and take time for your partner and yourself the latter part.
A very creative solution for keeping in touch with all of your friends and family may come to you now, Pisces. You may even be able to work out a way to finance it with a little help from someone who prefers to work behind the scenes.
