Strong winds blus­ter though the emo­tional realm this week, but the en­ergy goes the way we di­rect it. We can ride it down to our depths, work through a pile, or just lay low.

In gen­eral, al­though a lot is cook­ing be­neath the sur­face, it’s a pos­i­tive and rather pri­vate time. Emo­tions are a deep river as the two sig­ni­fiers of feel­ing, Venus and Mars, con­junct in in­tense Scor­pio while an un­set­tling op­po­si­tion be­tween Mer­cury and Uranus stirs the pot. It’s an in­ge­nious com­bi­na­tion and one that can solve as many prob­lems as it cre­ates — but we have to watch where the mind goes and prac­tice im­pulse con­trol.

If our ten­der feel­ings are poked, we tend to pull back. This would be fine, but be­cause trust is also an is­sue right now, our friends may feel aban­doned. It helps to be clear about our sig­nals.

Mer­cury op­pos­ing Uranus can change on our think­ing, push­ing us to adapt or ex­per­i­ment un­til we find new an­swers. It can also in­ter­rupt or­di­nary com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems. But oc­ca­sion­ally, it means we can let go of or­di­nary think­ing and get re­ally crazy.

Venus and Mars con­junct in Scor­pio — this intensifies pas­sions. Some peo­ple can chan­nel these feel­ings into stamp col­lect­ing. Oth­ers can have a fine time once they get into the right mood. But since this emo­tional rip­tide, to­gether with poor im­pulse con­trol, can lead a few to sud­den and ter­ri­ble re­sponses, it pays to dif­fuse sit­u­a­tions.

The week­end be­gins sen­si­tive and self-pro­tec­tive but then en­cour­ages us to ex­tend our­selves and shine on the peo­ple we love un­der a Leo moon. Look for emo­tional ex­pres­sion in cre­ative ways and skip per­sonal soap op­eras. Early next week is a pro­duc­tive and con­struc­tive time if we work past self-doubts and keep fo­cused on our goals. The week ends on a beau­ti­ful new moon in Li­bra, and as it con­juncts Saturn and squares Pluto, it’s an im­por­tant time to ne­go­ti­ate and find so­lu­tions to our biggest prob­lems.

Fri­day, Oct. 1: The vibe is self-pro­tec­tive this morn­ing as Mer­cury chal­lenges Mars un­der an in­ter­nal Can­cer moon. Tech­ni­cal prob­lems trip us up. Pac­ing and kind­ness are im­por­tant. Tonight we need to process in­for­ma­tion.

Satur­day, Oct. 2: Be gen­er­ous with at­ten­tion. It’s easy to get on our high horses and fight, but drop the ego is­sues as Mars chal­lenges Jupiter. We should re­con­sider sud­den de­ci­sions. Tonight, get out un­der a Leo moon — just steer clear of bel­liger­ent gleams.

Sun­day, Oct. 3: Early morn­ing is sweet, but our needs col­lide eas­ily mid­day un­less we take turns and hon­estly care. Beauty, ro­mance, and in­ten­sity — we want it all but need to avoid ob­ses­sive or prickly nar­cis­sism un­der pres­sure as Venus con­juncts Mars.

Mon­day, Oct. 4: It’s a grumpy and sleepy morn­ing as a growl­ing Mars/ Uranus as­pect cre­ates ir­ri­tated at­ti­tudes. In the af­ter­noon, fo­cus on peo­ple, not ac­com­plish­ments. Tonight, we can an­a­lyze the sit­u­a­tion but need to watch a cranky streak as the Virgo moon trines thought­ful Pluto.

Tues­day, Oct. 5: Work on the ba­sic build­ing blocks and let the whole form slowly. Se­ri­ous prob­lems need to be ad­dressed. Later, our al­lies cir­cle back; we can find so­lu­tions if we work to­gether.

Wed­nes­day, Oct. 6: Rest­less­ness en­cour­ages cre­ative en­ergy but re­quires that we try dif­fer­ent ways be­fore set­tling on an­swers. In­ter­ac­tions are edgy this af­ter­noon and more co­op­er­a­tive tonight.

Thurs­day, Oct. 7: We de­velop al­ler­gies to un­fair­ness un­der a new moon in Li­bra con­junct Saturn. Ne­go­ti­ate, bal­ance, and make and sign mu­tu­ally re­spon­si­ble agree­ments or make aes­thetic de­ci­sions. ◀
