IS IT FAIR? IS IT TRUE? IS IT BEAU­TI­FUL? As thought­ful Mer­cury en­ters Venus-ruled Li­bra, the sign of egal­i­tar­ian re­la­tion­ships, pro­por­tion, and beau­ti­ful jus­tice, it asks those tough ques­tions. Golden leaf-fil­tered au­tumn light over a dap­pled stream may be all those things — but not most acts of hu­mankind. We can do bet­ter.

The moon en­ters in­dus­tri­ous Capri­corn as the week­end be­gins, ask­ing us to get on a roll with our au­tum­nal chores. We may be aware of dan­ger or loss at a dis­tance as the sun squares Pluto, but this can help us let go of triv­ial dif­fer­ences and pri­or­i­tize our ef­forts.

Early next week, our minds lift and our con­ver­sa­tion ex­pands as Mer­cury con­juncts Jupiter, which we might be able to see in the East just be­fore sun­rise. We can re­lax and en­joy this en­er­getic open­ing, or we can reach out and pur­sue fresh op­por­tu­ni­ties. In­tro­verted un­der­cur­rents run be­neath this tem­po­rar­ily ex­tro­verted mo­ment. We may need more time alone or with our clos­est friends.

A more sen­si­tive and per­sonal at­mos­phere arises as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive Pisces on Wed­nes­day. Our dreams walk with us into our days. We can hurt feel­ings ac­ci­den­tally. If we do, we may feel a sharp back­lash on Thurs­day as vo­cal Mer­cury squares feisty Mars and sharpens our tem­pers.

FRI­DAY, OCT. 7: We can feel deeply dis­cour­aged by harsh events or crude com­ments. Watch out for power strug­gles as the sun squares Pluto. Tend to ur­gent mor­tal mat­ters. Our com­pe­tence im­proves later un­der a moon in de­ter­mined Capri­corn; our minds may want to de­bate but our hearts want peace.

SATUR­DAY, OCT. 8: Early morn­ing im­pa­tience asks us to get on those chores, but let’s not get overly di­rec­tive with oth­ers. Pri­or­i­tize ten­der hu­man needs over ac­com­plish­ments. Tonight we can come to new un­der­stand­ings if we look for an­swers rather than hold on to the prob­lem.

SUN­DAY, OCT. 9: Moods swing early this morn­ing: We may feel dis­cour­aged or over­whelmed, dis­con­tent and ad­verse to ar­gu­ment. A change of scene can of­fer fresh per­spec­tive mid­day. Be will­ing to ex­per­i­ment past a com­fort zone to find a dif­fer­ent so­lu­tion this af­ter­noon.

MON­DAY, OCT. 10: Op­por­tu­nity beck­ons. We could just re­lax af­ter a busy week­end, or we can reach out, net­work, meet, and help peo­ple get on the same page. Ar­gu­ments will not work to­day, but ne­go­ti­a­tions will — as long as we keep ev­ery­one’s best in­ter­ests in mind.

TUES­DAY, OCT. 11: A mind-open­ing, op­por­tu­nity-cre­at­ing Mer­cury-Jupiter con­junc­tion in Li­bra of­fers a pas­sive open door. We can just en­joy the breeze, or we can step through and make the most of op­por­tu­ni­ties. Of­fer olive branches as feisty Mars sex­tiles ide­al­is­tic Nep­tune, an as­pect that helps us re­lease old angers and stim­u­lates our in­tu­ition. Artwork and all cre­ative pro­cesses can flour­ish to­day.

WED­NES­DAY, OCT. 12: Emo­tions wash and feel­ings waf­fle as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive Pisces and con­juncts Nep­tune this morn­ing. Liq­uids can be tricky; look for tears, leaks, and floods. Let them flow, but look for the root prob­lem. Do not push peo­ple to ac­com­plish spe­cific goals; it will be like push­ing noo­dles through a key­hole. Come to know one an­other in­stead.

THURS­DAY, OCT. 13: Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties lean in this morn­ing and de­ci­sions need to be made. Mer­cury squares Mars this af­ter­noon for a sharp-edged com­pet­i­tive de­bate and a po­ten­tially ac­ci­dent-prone midafter­noon; count to five and work with im­pulse con­trol.
