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.
