Astrology This Week

This Week in Astrology
October 30 - November 3

This week on  ( October 31)we move into Gibbous Phase of the Libra Lunar cycle.     Faith & Spirituality are up. 

On November 3 the Sun lines up for a trine with Neptune sending good vibes on transformation and back to faith again. 

Values that look screwed up will capture our attention as Venus opposes Uranus builds to an opposition on Friday.    Money and love get twisted up.   Rebels will be up our grill.   

On Saturday we move into Taurus Full Moon.  Separate post to follow. 

Gibbous Moon
October 31, 2017
3:16pm EDT

Focus on:

How are you refining you faith?  How are you refining your inner mysticism?  How are you refining your ‘victimness’?   How are you refining your creative muses?

Special Focus:

11/3: Sun trine Neptune.  Mysticism wakes up.  Faith is coaxed out.  Spirituality inspired. 
11/3: Venus oppose Uranus:  Love is unique.  Creativity and money and values are shaken up.   Rebel learns the value of softness.

This Week....

This weekend we are still in Libra New Moon.  Are there any actions you need to do that will speak to improving relationships?  That speak to being fair?  What actions can you take that bring more balance in your life?  What area is totally out of whack? 
How can you do one small thing that puts it to the road of balance?    In The USA we have all day Saturday and most of Sunday until 3pm (EDT) to generate action that bring us stronger partnerships and balance. 

 On the 22nd the Sun moves into Scorpio and on the 23rd we move into Crescent phase. On the 26th the Sun conjuncts Jupiter.   Watch and see what gets big and important as we approach the 26th.    Watch if there is a power play or power shift.   As the week progresses Venus grows into a square with Pluto putting pressures on love and money and values.   Are they in sync?  How is the power of love at play?  And how is love of power at play.   

An interesting week. 

This focus:  Where do you need balance?  Where do you need to commit?  What are partners sharing with you?  Where do you need more of the partnership experience?  How can you commit and negotiate some solutions that will bring you more balance? 

Special focus
10/22: Mars enters Libra
10/22: Sun enters Scorpio

Crescent Moon Phase
October 23, 2017
 3:00pm EDT

Focus on: What are you learning about other cultures?  What are you learning about righteousness?  What are you learning about being a “bridge”?  What are you learning about education?   What are you learning about your philosophies?  

Special focus:
10/24:  Mercury trine Neptune:  High Intuition, inspired thoughts, delightful conversations also a bit fuzzy. 
10/26:  Sun conjunct Jupiter:    Opinions extreme.  Power trips.  Harsh black and white.   No grey. 

First Quarter Moon
October 27, 2017  
6:22pm EDT

First quarter: We do more actions based on the information that we just received.  Or we feel our instincts guide us on something.  We pursue again.  We make another call or we see someone. We mail something.  We stir the pot again.  This can be a time when we realize that the goals we planted on New need more action from us, perhaps actions that involve breaking away.   Are there people who say they have our best interest in heart but fear us growing away from them?  Maybe we need to get help from others not the usual suspects.  Some independence may need to be exerted.

Focus on:  What actions are you taking that speak to groups?  What actions are you taking that join you with your tribe?  Where is your tribe and how are you actively engaging them?   Where are you like minded peeps?  How are you connecting up with them?

Special focus

10/27: Venus square Pluto:  Money and Love wound up tight.  What needs to be transformed?  Both?  Shallow versus committed.  Light versus hard work.

Final Week of Virgo Lunar Cycle

We are in the final days of Virgo lunar cycle.  As always, the new moon feels a year ago.  In this case it was September 20.   How much have you experienced since then?  What is going on with your schedule?  Have you felt that your calendar is connected with what you value?  Is your daily activity hour by hour matching your interior landscape?    What are your goals and is your daily life heading towards what you want in your life?  

And most important this week---if you look back on the last three weeks and consider the questions above and you think, “Crap, I’m not in sync.”  Or “I am out of alignment”  do not fret.  Just acknowledge that something is off and release all your negativity about being out of alignment.    We will have Libra New Moon and the 29 days of the lunar cycle to find some balance and alignment coming up later this week.   Between  now and then let’s just release. 

Balsamic Moon Phase
October 15, 2017
9:23pm EDT

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on  How are we releasing our insecurities? How are we releasing our negativity?  How are we releasing our critical nature?

Special Focus:
10/17:  Mercury enters scorpio
10:18: Mercury conjunct Jupiter.  Big thoughts about, sex, taxes, power, lawyers guns and money.   
10/19: Sun oppose Uranus -- Expect Weird.  Then double it.   

Libra New Moon  (Post to come)

Jupiter In Scorpio

October 10th  - Jupiter in Scorpio

Jupiter moves into Scorpio where it will be until November 2018.  The last time Jupiter was here was October 27 2005- November 25, 2006.  Contemplate what you were doing at that time and how were you feeling pushed to the limit in some way.      

Jupiter as we know is not small. He is the biggest planet in our solar system.    He does not know how to be small and frankly he does not know how to be measured.    Scorpio has his own problems finding the middle ground.  Scorpio likes things black and white, not gray.   Scorpio is the second water sign.    Cancer the first water sign is full of highs and lows, like the waves on the beaches and the tides near shore.  It comes in and pulls out.  Scorpio is a wee bit more focused and intense.   Emotions will flow like any water sign but with Scorpio it needs to be harnessed.  Think of a dam on a river, which harnesses all the water into electricity. That is the power of Scorpio.   Having Jupiter there could make us kick in some obsessive tendencies.    Instead of fighting the obsession or even the OCD, let’s all make good use of the energy.   Use it to drive us and the fact that it launches in the Virgo lunar cycle means we will probably have a pretty good idea what needs our OCD energy.    Jupiter in Scorpio will have us clear out garbage and really be done with it.   We are done with it for a variety of reasons but with the fresh new clear space something new will be born.  We may find ourselves looking at our sex life, our shared investments, taxes and figuring new ways to improve on all of them.  We will speak more definitive.   “No one- everyone, always, never, yes, no, black, white.”   We aren’t hanging out in grey.   Scorpio only cares about things that matter.  We could have gotten lost in pretense or some light and airy issues while Jupiter was in Libra.  Perhaps connections with people who were in our lives for a moment or two.  Now we go deep. We want to go down to the basement and find things that matter and go deep on it.    We will talk more about Jupiter as we progress for the next year but do not judge yourself if you find a harsher tone coming out of you or your passion gets ticked up.   It’s probably Jupiter kicking in to another gear.   

This Week's Astrology

This Week Astrology

11:26pm EDT

This week we are in both Disseminating and Last Quarter moon.   During  Disseminating phase at the beginning of the week we focus o sharing.   A the end of  the week last quarter will focus on family and emotions and taking care of details.  

Focus on:  How are you sharing your cleverness? How are you sharing your adaptability?  How are you sharing your humor?  How are you sharing you quick brain?  How are you sharing your “grey” which is not “black” or “white”.  How are you sharing the appropriateness of not telling the truth? 

This week is booby trapped with junky aspects.  There is dark and tense thinking and communication issues that strain us . Power trippers and negotiations look rough.  Laziness hurts.  Actions look thwarted.  Cold and steely are up. 

Plus Jupiter moves into death and rebirth Scorpio where it will be transiting for the next year.  Yeah it is that week.

Special focus:
10/9:  Mercury square Pluto.  Thoughts are dark and stormy.  Depressed thinking can rule.  Thoughts that overwhelm and go to the dark. 
10/9: Sun Square Pluto.   Relationships feel slapped by reality.   Is everyone on the same page? How is there balance?  How is the career?  How is your place in the world?  Versus your partnerships? 
10/10: Jupiter in Scorpio.   (see above)
10/11: Mars square Saturn.   Actions feel thwarted.   Building anything up feels rushed.   Actions are not in synch with big ideas. 

Last Quarter Moon Phase
October 12, 2017
8:25am  EDT

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:
What actions are you taking that support your family? What actions are you taking that support your feelings?  How are you using your emotions to motivate your more ‘buttoned up’ abilities?   How are you letting your feelings guide you towards fixing important areas of your life?

Special focus:

10/13: Venus enters Libra
