Weekly Horoscope for Oct. 17-23

Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?

Sunday: the Moon is in Pisces
You might like to escape the world today via the softer arts, such as watercolors or gouache (a medium that lends itself to several types of expression). 

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (Full Moon): the Moon is in Aries
Often the time before a Full Moon can be somewhat contentious. In the negative, the sign Aries rules arguments, impulsive speaking, and rash behavior. So lay low and think earnestly before saying or doing anything.

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Taurus

Take a calm, refined look at your finances or possessions. Both Jupiter and Saturn, in Aquarius, are square the Moon in Taurus. Something requires attention and a little work.

Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
This will probably be a social weekend – communicating or visiting, laughing and joking, keeping the atmosphere light and lively. (serious situations need not apply)

When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, if the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! It is also interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres Someone may need unconditional support, so let them know you are standing by them. If indeed it is you who would like some nurturing support, be sure to let your needs be known.

Pallas – Keep your skills focused behind the scenes. And, pace yourself in order to avoid burnout.

Juno – It will be beneficial to both parties if you can each support the other in the quest for higher states of awareness, especially when Venus is also in Sagittarius (keep checking planet list above). Juno in Sag also can indicate a legal love partnership is in the offing.

Vesta – You may be asked to keep quiet about something important. You will need to decide if this is something (or someone) you can be fervently devoted to during this time.

Chiron – Release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).

∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde including Direct & In Station)

**Solar Eclipse/A = Annular, which is an eclipse that is almost a Total Eclipse but will show a narrow ring of light surrounding the New Moon.
