October 24th to to 30th, 2016
It’s time to get decadently deep this week, Aries. You have zero patience with shallow conversations or people. You’re only interested in that which is complex, forbidden or shrouded in mystery. Psychology, power, money, esoteric subjects and any other current obsessions can feel all consuming. The early part of the work requires your attention to detail and finishing up projects that you’ve left on the back burner for far too long. The second half is perfect for socializing and one-on-one’s. Work that resourcefulness, darling. When you put your mind to it, nothing and no one will stop you under the current passionate and determined stars.
You are living for relationships this week, Taurus. Your utter devotion could border on obsession, especially if you feel like the other is not as passionate and invested as you are. Don’t hold in your feelings and let the anger build or worst—eat you up inside. Express your emotions to keep things moving. The moment you begin to feel stagnant or bitter, you know you’re stuffing things down. The early part of the week is especially creative and romantic. The second half is perfect for sweetening up your work rituals and getting into more balance and flow on the daily.
Work trumps all this week, Gemini. You could feel so obsessed with your current projects that it may be challenging to remember to attend to the many other fabulous facets of your life. Enjoy the rare inability to be distracted and plow through your deadlines and other lingering half-finished works in progress. The early part of the week has you playing hermit and hiding from the crowds. Not to worry, you’ll be back to your sparkling, social self by the second half of the week. Romance and creativity are in the air especially from Thursday onward.
Enjoy the mellow of the waning Moon this week, Cancer. You’ll finally feel like you have a chance to slow down enough to process the depths and complexity of all the drama over the past few weeks. Writing in your journal or talking to a trusted confidante is especially recommended now. There’s so much on your mind during the first half of the week, that you’ll need plenty of outlets to chat. The second half of the week is ideal for nesting, your favorite escape. Keep your social plans light so you can indulge in your favorite role of domestic goddess straight through the weekend.
You’ve got your mind on your money and your money on your mind this week, Leo. In fact, you’re totally preoccupied with the need for both financial and emotional security to the exclusion of much else. Take this as an invitation to pour your endless strength and creativity into creating a more solid version of a support base in your life. Don’t be afraid to ask for the help you need to make this happen. You are not an island, Leo. You’re always there for others, now it’s time to swallow a little pride and ask for what you really want and need without feeling guilty or weak.
Communication rules your world this week, Virgo. Immerse yourself in the art of deep conversation and take care of any unfinished correspondence demanding your attention now. You’ll be able to delve right into the heart of any matter and reach bottom line solutions with minimal effort under the current stars. Others will be clamoring for your brilliant mind, so don’t be surprised if you’re suddenly bombarded with questions and neediness. Luckily, you can solve a problem faster than most people can tie their shoes. Speed and efficiency in speech, word and action are your super powers, Virgo!
Money matters demand your absolute attention this week, Libra. If you’ve felt completely out of balance in the financial realm, don’t be afraid to enlist some really good advice (read: expert with pro tips) to help you manage your banking. You’ll be wanting to lie low during the first chunk of the week.. Give yourself plenty of breaks and extra beauty sleep to regain your equilibrium. The Moon will move into your stars for the second half of the week to make for incredible sweetness. Friday is especially fabulous with the joining of lucky Jupiter with the Moon in your stars. Your wish is the command of the cosmos.
This week is Scorpionic in every way, shape and form! The quicksilver communication planet, Mercury will move into your stars on Monday to make for a decadently deep phase of psychological discovery. You love nothing more than uncovering profound insights into yourself and those you obsess over. Your mind is like a psychic detective and x-ray machine in one this week. Nothing will get past your intense gaze. Thurday’s Mars-Uranus square could incite you to burn a bridge, so think twice before pushing ultimatums. Plus, the Moon will move into your sultry stars on Saturday to make for a passionately perfect weekend of all of your favorite extremes. There’s no such thing as overkill in your world, darling.
You need a break this week, Sagittarius. All of the recent socializing hit its fever pitch and now you are in dire need of some solo time to recover and catch your breath. You will be happiest with time to read, reflect and catch as many flicks as possible. Limit your social engagements as much as possible. Remember your party girl instinct is always to say yes before you realize you wanted to say no. Use the “let me get back to you” time-buying phrase to avoid impulsively overcommitting yourself to plans that you’ll later want to back out of.
You’re a mega-force to be reckoned with this week, Capricorn. You have passion purpose and a will that will keep on licking the competition long after other tire of the game. The Moon will move through the top of your chart and support your career zone during the second half of the week, so make your bigger moves after Wednesday. There’s so much power and drive in everything you do this week. You always tend towards the most challenging goals out there because you love to conquer your own fear. Use your wrecking ball powers to demolish all that’s standing between you and your highest potential.
The drama is finally beginning to settle after last week’s blow-out extravaganza. The underlying emotional intensity is still around, but very few are acting on it. You will appreciate the new levels of self-control and lessening of drama that make it easier for you to focus on the essentials. For you this week, that would be career, career and more career. Put your money where your passions are for the best results. You can seriously move mountains if your heart and soul are totally backing your current cause. If not, it’s time to rethink your mission statement, Aquarius. Thursday’s Mars-Uranus square could pack quite a surprising punch, so be open for anything but don’t blow anything up.
Wanderlust takes over this week, Pisces. If you’re not able to physically jet, you’re taking some wild adventures in the limitless sphere of your imagination. You get your deepest insights from expanding your horizons. The waning Moon will move into your relationship zone and opposite stars during the first part of the week providing the ideal time for profound communication with your beloved. You can get to the more raw emotional truths now. Others are willing to meet you in the heavier poetic places of your deepest longings now. You won’t feel so alone out there in the oceanic realms of all those feels, Pisces.
