Friday, Oct. 15: Work with practical metamorphosis this morning. Meetings take work but bode well midday as the moon enters collaborative Aquarius. It’s a sociable but not intimate evening; enjoy the group but let people process their work as they unwind. Saturday, Oct. 16: Balance community responsibilities with a personal need for free time as the moon trines Saturn. Our timing can be off midday; don’t take it personally. This evening we don’t want conflict; we want to share experiences and enjoy rich cultural fruit as the sun and Mercury conjunct in Libra. Sunday, Oct. 17: Overnight tension can leave us with strange dreams. We can feel the healing power of the collective in any spiritual or familial gatherings this morning, so let’s open the circle but honor personal boundaries. Philosophical questions require us to walk our talk this afternoon. Tonight, we need to be safe as the moon enters Pisces. Monday, Oct. 18: Our inner sensitivities are turned up but disproportional as Mercury and the sun trine permeable Neptune. Pull out the art supplies, but watch the tendency to filter information coming in through hopes and fears. Don’t let feelings get hurt by other people tonight; they’re probably just being self-protective. Tuesday, Oct. 19: Take the path of least resistance to make the most progress. Impressions deepen and a new, if nonrational, understanding opens if we look for it as the sun trines Neptune. Defend the underdog and listen to the drama for real feelings underneath. If we can let a burden go, evening is optimistic. Thursday, Oct 21: Early delays can be irritating, but then a spirit of enterprise and adventure fills the air. If we’re tired of behaving, we need safe and creative ways to act out as the moon waxes in Aries and Venus sesquisquares Jupiter. We want to take action about what’s bothering us but need to work with a short, if intense, attention span; we can easily overshoot the mark or drop the ball if we lose focus. We can be mesmerized by golden falling leaves but may see the world through intuitive, rather hazy thinking as the sun, Mercury, and Mars aspect Neptune this week.
Neptune can dissolve the old forms of whatever it touches; this week and next, we can put an end to old angers and bury the hatchet or let go of an old pattern as active Mars squares Neptune. We may also find that we need to search for fresh reasons or new directions.
Even though the sun and Mercury are running together in friendly Libra, with Venus and Mars in very private Scorpio all month, we may need to keep some things to ourselves. If we’re ticked off, we can come up with a really nasty response; we can watch this play out in negative political campaign ads. If we feel vindictiveness come up, it helps to walk it off.
Neptune also speaks of toxins, poisons, and liquids, so watch for new evidence and anger around water pollution. Any energy we put into pollution control will bring rewards.
We drift and dream at the beginning of the week, but the mood activates toward the end as Mars trines Jupiter and the moon grows full in Aries. Wednesday, Oct. 20: Unexpected events can bring positive changes this morning as the moon conjuncts Jupiter and then enters Aries. The mood is competitive and edgy; no one wants to lose. Initiate new work but be patient around an old problem. Hurt feelings trigger us easily around dinner. Tonight, get out and get the energy moving as Mars trines Jupiter.
