SAP RE­TURNS TO THE ROOTS, acorns ripen in the fall sun­shine, and squir­rels gather their fall­ing bounty. The sun en­ters Scorpio to­day, and the au­tumn deep­ens within and with­out.

The Scorpio sun, along with a beau­ti­ful predawn con­junc­tion of Jupiter, Venus, and Mars in in­dus­tri­ous Virgo, asks us to gather our sum­mer’s har­vest and sort our seeds. We need to de­cide what ef­forts to nur­ture through­out the win­ter and what we want to compost. Pare down to feel less scat­tered and thinly spread, and fo­cus on what will pro­duce over the next year. The rest can be­come fer­til­izer.

In this light, we may feel like spend­ing less time so­cial­iz­ing, but we may have deeper con­ver­sa­tions when we do. We might want to date less and love more — to be less of a dilet­tante in our spir­i­tual prac­tice and deepen our med­i­ta­tion.

The week­end starts out with sen­si­tized emo­tions un­der a Pisces moon and as heart-cen­tered Venus trines pro­found Pluto. We may be painfully aware of what needs heal­ing; com­pas­sion may call us to act even if we’re feel­ing in need of deep soul rest.

Be care­ful not to hurt one an­other’s feel­ings in this sen­si­tive and some­what de­fen­sive time, be­cause when the moon en­ters Aries on Sun­day, our feisti­ness re­turns. This nervy ex­cite­ment can shake loose a few screws, so let’s stay as grounded as pos­si­ble.

Tues­day brings a richly sen­sual, stub­born, pos­ses­sive full moon in Taurus that en­er­gizes work­ing re­la­tion­ships and tests ones that aren’t work­ing. If this full moon prods some old scar tis­sue, let’s hold the peo­ple in the room ac­count­able for their present ac­tions but not for the aches of our his­tory.

Mid­week soft­ens into a much more ap­pre­cia­tive, com­mu­nica­tive, even cud­dly op­por­tu­nity to har­vest the fruits of our ef­forts. Let’s share our bounty.

FRI­DAY, OCT. 23: Poignancy soft­ens the ground of our heart. Where we feel safe, we can in­tensely con­nect to the peo­ple and things that mat­ter and com­mune with cre­ativ­ity. If we have to guard our heart, we do so fiercely. Of­fer the balm of ac­cep­tance tonight.

SATUR­DAY, OCT. 24: Drift among the fall­ing leaves and waft­ing mem­o­ries; in­tro­spec­tive me­lan­cho­lia can re­duce our prag­ma­tism but give us fod­der for con­tem­pla­tion this morn­ing. No­tice a grow­ing en­ergy, im­pa­tience, and ur­ban vibe tonight.

SUN­DAY, OCT. 25: An ac­tive, volatile Aries moon can fuel our en­gines for good or ill. Note a po­ten­tial for com­bustible ten­sion or mo­ti­vat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and stretch the heart. Let’s be care­ful what fires we light as pas­sion­ate Venus con­juncts ex­pan­sive Jupiter.

MON­DAY, OCT. 26: That im­pa­tient Aries moon stresses dead­lines and pushes ac­tion, but don’t take dan­ger­ous short­cuts. Nar­row think­ing, cranky judg­men­tal at­ti­tudes, or trans­porta­tion lim­i­ta­tions can cause de­lays. Keep the mind open and the eyes alert.

TUES­DAY, OCT. 27: Slow it down as the moon waxes full in sen­sual, earthy, and pos­ses­sive Taurus this morn­ing. Re­spect dif­fer­ences; ar­gu­ments that arise to­day may not find an easy so­lu­tion be­cause we dig in our heels.

WED­NES­DAY, OCT. 28: What we plant to­day will be un­usu­ally fer­tile and pro­duc­tive as the earthy Taurus moon trines the Jupiter, Venus, and Mars con­junc­tion. Let go of frus­tra­tions and fo­cus on what mat­ters. Let’s plant good seeds and make ev­ery word, ac­tion, food choice, and pur­chase in­voke peace, safety, health, and cre­ative fruit­ful­ness.

THURS­DAY, OCT. 29: The con­ver­sa­tion picks up as the moon en­ters ver­bal Gem­ini and forms anx­ious but po­ten­tially pos­i­tive as­pects. Help di­rect the con­ver­sa­tion. Don’t buy into the ex­is­ten­tial anx­i­ety; do use this en­ergy to fur­ther those pro­duc­tive seeds.
