TOctober 5 to 11, 2017
hursday/friday, the full moon in Aries keeps the intensity dial turned right up. Aries is an instigating, assertive, and action-driven archetype. Known as the harvest moon, it is a time to reap from what has been earned or learned.
The full moon is spurred to action by Pluto in Capricorn’s directive to get it under better control. Take the initiative and create the change you want to see. Substantial gain and reward are the carrot.
A full moon can be a polarizing influence, but Mars, ruler of the full moon in Aries, and Venus, ruler of the sun in Libra, are at work on samepage accord. Teamed up in Virgo, they have just completed a two-year uncover-it cycle and now launch the next two-year improvement, heal-it, and upgrade project.
Friday can start under better control than it finishes. Expect to deal with more than you’d prefer. The long weekend is ideal for taking a break, but the stars call for some extra push, pull, or staying on top of it on Sunday and Thanksgiving Monday.
Tuesday’s stars pile it up on us too. The going should get smoother as the day advances.
The big news is Jupiter’s exit out of Libra and into Scorpio on Tuesday morning. Once every 12 years, Jupiter, the abundance planet, revisits a sign. Although no two passes are the same, think back to 2005-2006 and you’ll get a sense of Jupiter’s potential impact for this next year. The transit is an excellent one for all power-play initiatives, for doing whatever it takes to make the turnaround you desire and deserve.
March 20–April 20
Thursday’s full moon puts added firepower behind all fresh fix-it, heal-it, improve-it initiatives. A new job or training program, helper, agent, or specialist gets a thumb’s up. A new pet sparks a sense of “destined to be”. Sunday to Wednesday, there’s stuff to get through. Seek money, empowerment, emotional union, sexual union, or spiritual fulfillment; Jupiter into Scorpio is a wealth-generating transit.
TAURUS April 20–May 21
You are about to pierce through a sound barrier—perhaps theirs but more likely (and more importantly) your own. A fresh take on life, work, and love is in a budding stage. See those new wants, yearnings, and desires for the positive catalyst they are. Coinciding with Thursday’s full moon, Venus and Mars begin a new two-year “do it yourself” project.
May 21–June 21
Whether it’s chosen or thrust upon you, what’s firing up now hits a more rapid Go. It’s a big adjustment, but that’s no reason to hold yourself up. Thursday’s full moon marks the start of a new two-year build-itbetter cycle. Sunday/monday calls for you to tough it out. Jupiter into Scorpio loans you added resourcefulness and helps you to figure it out better.
CANCER June 21–July 22
Thursday/friday, life hits go in some dynamic or hot-stuff way. No matter how the full moon in Aries unfolds for you, you are wise to temper your emotions and to take it one step at a time. Venus and Mars are in excellent shape for talking it out and working through it. Jupiter in Scorpio, starting Tuesday, greatly enhances prospects and opportunity.
July 22–August 23
A can-do attitude looks great on you. Thursday/friday, get there first: jump into it; go for it. Be spontaneous; try something or someone new. The long weekend is ideally timed, but still, you may have to force yourself through it. Venus/mars begin a new two-year better-your-best cycle. Jupiter into Scorpio, starting Tuesday, is ideal for a home-base renovation project, starting with you.
August 23–September 23
Looking for a fresh start? It’s yours! Thursday/friday, you’ll hit Go in some dynamic way. Venus/ Mars in Virgo now launch your next two-year self-improvement initiative. They put head and heart on the same page. Relationships hit the same wavelength too. Sunday to Wednesday calls for added effort or working it out. Jupiter into Scorpio enhances intuitive smarts and keeps you resourceful.
September 23–October 23
Out of sight or behind the scenes, you are a busy one. Take time out to replenish if and when you can on Thursday/friday. A quiet place to work, think, or heal is ideal. Watch for a fresh spark to light. Heed warning signals; tend to necessary repairs. Sunday through Wednesday can add pressure. Jupiter in Scorpio loans you added strength, sway, and resolve.
Something new or added could prove to be a great fit or fix Thursday/friday. A new job, project, or piece of information fills the gap quite nicely. Even so, there’s working-out to do over this coming week. Venus/mars are set to take you to task regarding social involvement, self-improvement, or your health. Jupiter in Scorpio, starting Tuesday, amplifies drive, motivation, cause, and opportunity.
Thursday/friday, it’s hot stuff; you are too. Sparking something fresh and new, the full moon can be a moneymaker or it can light up a social or romantic opportunity. Starting a new two-year cycle, Venus/mars stage a time-is-ripe moment to face what’s necessary and to do what must be done. Today’s sacrifice is tomorrow’s gain. Jupiter in Scorpio strengthens inner resolve.
Begin the search or sign the contract now. Dive in; go for it. Thursday/friday pushes the refresh button in some timely, nonnegotiable way. It could be a new home or family circumstance, an education or marketing track, or a new plan for your financial future. Jupiter increases your influence, sway, and profits (emotional and material).
Feedback or news lights a fresh spark Thursday/friday. Impulse, instinct, and spontaneity do too. As best you can, keep yourself a step ahead; allot extra time; keep extra provisions on hand. The full moon fast-tracks or short-lists you. Venus/mars hit cut-to-the-chase regarding necessary corrections and upgrades. Jupiter brings benefit to career and financial undertakings.
February 18–March 20
Thursday is better than Friday for working it out with someone or something, but either is good for taking it on. Aim for quality over quantity this long weekend. Sunday through Wednesday calls for extra effort or preserving. Regarding matters of heart or wallet, as of Tuesday, Jupiter begins a one-year stack-it-inyour-favour cycle.
