Costumes can be wild
this year as an extroverted Leo moon helps us call up our wilder personas, dance with the skeletons, and symbolically sweeten the future as we give sweets to the little monsters at our door.
But for the rest of the week, we really feel Scorpio’s intensity and call inward with the sun, Mercury, and Venus now all in Scorpio. Occasionally, we see the scorpion’s stinger snap when someone feels cornered. Luckily, motivating Mars has just entered restless, upbeat Sagittarius and reminds us that we can do something about what we see.
Scorpio can sharpen our focus. With this lineup, it’s easy to forget the big picture and begin to crave one person, place, or thing, but this obfuscates what we really need to do to be satisfied. Hint — it’s not more chocolate.
Our tendency to overfocus intensifies this week as Mercury semisquares Pluto, and impulse control can be a problem as the sun sesquisquares electrical Uranus. We lose sight of anything outside our small laser of focus; inside that focus, whatever we experience can feel infinite, which is great when we’re dancing at a party but hell if we’re obsessing about a problem.
If we feel stuck, or know someone who is, we can use the Sagittarius Mars medicine to help: movement, travel, philosophy, animals, and the natural world. Remember that whatever it is, good or bad, it will soon change.
This weekend, a party can productively channel our inner drama; play it to the hilt but watch for excess. Saturday we are wild; we are festive as Sunday begins but become contemplative later.
Early next week, opinions are as prevalent and insubstantial as the leaves we kick. The planets ask us to put aside extremes of feeling and look for objective facts. The week’s end brings new avenues in which to work together.
Friday, Oct. 29:
Digestive systems vibrate with feeling. The morning is generous and constructive and changes midday as the Cancer moon trines Uranus and Jupiter. The night grows wild as the moon enters stubborn but sociable Leo.
Saturday, Oct. 30:
Introversion and extroversion wrestle with each other unless we make creative compromises. Self-absorption challenges relationships until we open our hearts. Costumes liberate our inner diva while maintaining personal privacy, so go wild tonight.
Sunday, Oct. 31:
Be patient making a point, and listen kindly. Confusion midday can snafu scheduling but adds glamour to Halloween festivities as the moon opposes Neptune — the veils are thin and imagination thick. Evening grows more serious and mysterious as Mercury challenges Pluto. It’s time to honor our ancestors.
Monday, Nov. 1:
The mood is a little paranoid and manipulative. Be honest rather than offer something that’s hard to follow up as Venus sextiles Pluto. Investigate carefully any last-minute political revelations. Let caring show through practical moves.
Tuesday, Nov. 2:
Complex filaments of connections, inner tensions, and conflicts between instinctive responses and honorable behavior make life complicated; find good ways to relieve stress. The stars speak of reversals of fortune but whose fortune is up to us, as the moon opposes Uranus later in the day.
Wednesday, Nov. 3:
It’s a melancholic morning as the Libra moon squares Pluto, with more coping energy midday. Tonight, the soul needs to rest more than the body does. Acceptance, new responsibilities, and new allies refocus our attention as the moon conjuncts Saturn. We may have more support and tools than we thought.
Thursday, Nov. 4:
Technical difficulties shake up the status quo as the sun sesquisquares Uranus and Mercury trines Jupiter. Good news is likely as the moon trines Jupiter midday.
