The entire week is a build up to two major events – the fourth exact Uranus-Pluto square at 9° on November 1 and an exciting New Moon Solar Eclipse at 11° Scorpio on November 3. The fact is the two are inextricably entwined and the best way to handle this is to focus on building reliable and authentic structures in your life. Earth and water continue to be the dominant elements after all.
Our internal dialogues are far more important to our health and well-being than external ones with retrograde Mercury conjoining the Scorpio Sun on Tuesday, October 29. This situation will continue through the rest of this week and probably until Mercury stations direct on November 10. Consider this . . . if we aren’t intimately familiar with our own inner landscape it is much tougher to navigate interactions with others. Learning to know and at least like ourselves has been shown to be a critical factor in attracting positive relationships in our lives. If we don’t like ourselves deep down, it is much more challenging to develop good relationships first with ourselves and then with others.
Mercury continues to feel the love from Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn on Friday whilst taking a hit from Uranus in Aries. Even if it hurts, take your time to think things through. Be as honest as possible and true to yourself. Rushing to reckless judgment calls now is a very bad idea, no matter how tempting it might be.
The Cradle Pattern in earth and water begins to develop on Wednesday when Mars in Virgo exactly opposes Chiron in Pisces. The next day Mars will be trine Pluto in Capricorn and by Friday the Scorpio Sun will be trine Chiron and sextile both Mars and Pluto. I see this pattern as a helpful and useful antidote to the fourth exact Uranus-Pluto square. It seems like the best thing we can do for ourselves is make sure we are basing our opinions on fact as well as building those reliable and authentic structures in our lives as I mentioned above.
Thursday and Friday, when the Moon is in Libra creating a T-Square with Uranus and Pluto, hold the greatest potential for people to lose it. Please take care to treat others as fairly as possible and ALWAYS listen carefully to the other side of the story.
An excellent week to mind our own business, and be kind and forgiving of ourselves as well as those we interact with.
The best way to prevent yourself from coming completely unglued this week, Aries, is to work. Hopefully you will have a complicated, demanding task to tackle that will require intense concentration. Otherwise things could be really dicey late in the week. OK?!
Taurus, you may not be all that bothered by what is driving other people batty at this time. Choosing the right person to team up with though is critical but even there if you follow your gut instincts you will do quite well.
Wondering why your usual approach to problem solving is not working as well as usual, Gemini? That’s because a strictly intellectual approach is not going to give you all the necessary information. Try running it by some of your more intuitive coworkers.
This happens to be one of those times when you have much needed backup who have your best interests at heart, Cancer. Reach out to them and they will be there for you. Be aware your work environment may be tense this week.
The most demands on your time and energy, Leo, look to be coming from your home and family. You might also be in the process of considering moving or doing home maintenance projects. Don’t get in too big a hurry and be very pragmatic.
You are actually in a good place going into this eventful week, Virgo. Your energy levels are decent and your natural organizational abilities will stand you in good stead. Let your creative ideas brew for awhile before running them by anyone else.
You might want to steer clear of confrontations late in the week, Libra, or risk getting into a bigger fight than you’d planned for. Give very careful consideration to what is most important to you now by doing an inventory of available resources.
Clearly there is far more going on with you, Scorpio, than you are willing to share. Keep it that way for awhile yet because sharing too much information before you have your priorities lined out to your satisfaction will hinder rather than help.
These days your work is probably keeping you occupied, Sagittarius, but nonetheless you still have plenty going on behind that smiling face. Whether it is personal frustrations, problems at home or simply contemplating the nature of the universe, the rumblings are almost audible.
At this time you are in a very decent position to meet some long term goals, Capricorn, but I still feel the wisest course is to keep those plans under wraps. You should have a better of idea about the timing of your next move soon.
Dealing with the powers that be in order to further your career, Aquarius, is going to take some serious maneuvering and if you are not completely prepared, it may not end well. Hold off confronting them for awhile to get all your ducks in a row.
Not to put you on the spot or anything, Pisces, but you may be able to make a difference this week by exercising your compassionate side. Don’t worry; you will have plenty of help, especially from an old friend or your partner.
If you know your Rising sign, read the horoscope for it too.
