Daily Cosmic Calendar for October 17th

The two days prior to any Full Moon can be considered a time-period of preparation for the enlightening vibrations about to descend from the higher planes of being. Flashes of genius can keep you busy as the Moon makes its monthly union with Uranus in Aries (12:02PM). On the other hand, this conjunction can also cause a temporary shock to the system or immerse you in a wave of surprise and uncertainty.  Adding to the potentially topsy-turvy conditions are a frictional, 135-degree tie from the Sun to Chiron (1:17PM) followed by an intense parallel between Mercury and Pluto (1:36PM). Try to tweak these two aspects into providing you with a healing touch and in-depth insights across the board.  Meanwhile, coming to your rescue is a flowing trine of 120-degrees between the Moon and Venus (1:56PM). Romantic bonds, social activities and the creative arts all benefit from this harmonious sky pattern. Continue taking advantage of this lunar rapport with the traditional planet of love and beauty as the evening hours look promising for soulful interactions with dear ones.
