ASTROLOGY October 8 – October 15, 2016

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
The pressure is on to take a transformational tack in relationship. At some point or another, one has to own up to one’s own blind spots. Now would be a great time to do this. Should you be so wise, the benefits would be immense. Liberation will come in one way or another; relaxation too.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
Venus has passed the mid-point of her transit through Scorpio. The intensity that has been visiting you should slowly begin to tail off. If everything has gone correctly, you should now be filled with a deep longing that is arising from the very depths of your soul. So, get yourself on track.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Mercury has finally left Virgo. You are well and truly over the nit-picking and logic chopping. He is now passing through Libra. This should give you a lighter feeling; a feeling of harmony and equanimity. Let yourself fly for a while. There’s no need to fall into the trap of seriousness.

CANCER (June 22 – Jul 22)
The Moon begins this week waxing in Capricorn. It is time to integrate the part of you that likes to stay home and curl up on the couch, with the part of you that likes to don a suit of armour and tilt at the world like Don Quixote. Integration is a beautiful thing. Be a host to your whole self.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Community is your salve for now; and you are going about connecting with the world at large with elegance and charm. Don’t let anybody enable any of your bad habits. The worst habit for any of us is to imagine that we are more important than we are. Hubris is lethal. Be gentle and real.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Solitude is your friend. It’s where you can apply yourself, without distraction, to all the things that mean the most to you. Get your creativity in order if life gives you a little break from the noise and intensity of relationship. If you are feeling out of whack, go and visit some trees or the beach.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
The Sun is midway through Libra. Mercury has arrived to join Jupiter in Libra too. There’s a lot of planetary weight and energy in your corner. It will be hard to keep your optimism down. No matter what comes your way, you are likely to bounce back. Trust yourself to tackle difficult stuff.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
When you aren’t flowing with circumstance, you are dancing with it. Essentially, blessings are falling down out of your ceiling. They are being generated by Venus’ journey through your sign. Her job is to show you the many dimensions of delight. Meld your surface with your depth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The journey of the Sun through Libra is softening your journey. Equanimity and musicality are omnipresent, even when you are stopped in your tracks by things not really going your way. Be patient with obstacles. Put on your favourite music. Have a good old sing and a dance.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The Moon begins her week in Capricorn. This charges you up with feeling. Expect your veins to be filled with emotion. Add to this the drive given to you by Mars and Pluto and you will have all the passion you need to break through any creative blocks that have been getting in your way.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The effect of the transit of the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter through Libra, is to gentle your journey. Where there have been hard edges, softness is now a real possibility. Where there have been obstacles, be open to the idea that they might just melt away. Help life to relax your heart.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There’s a gentle but firm message coming your way from Jupiter, who is over in Libra. He is suggesting that you find the middle way. You may have subtly veered off into one extreme or another. Recognise any imbalances you might be in. Let that awareness right your ship.
