Your Daily Planet Tracker for October 17: The Moon in Aquarius

Quirky, Humanitarian, Independent

October 17 – October 19, 2018


Before we talk specifically about the Moon in Aquarius, let’s first talk about the Moon for a moment. Astrologers consider the Moon a planet, and because it moves so quickly it passes through each of the 12 zodiac signs once every month. Just as the Sun has a placement in our birth chart, so does the Moon.

When the Moon is in Aquarius

Regardless of what your sign is, for a couple of days each month we all get drawn into the influence of the Aquarius Moon. This is the time when we’re more inclined to march to the beat of our own drum. Aquarius is anything but cookie-cutter, and this lunation will have us trying to figure out what it is that makes us unique so that we can share it with the world.

Aquarians are social butterflies, making friends and influencing people wherever they go. This isn’t surprising considering Aquarius rules the 11th House of Friendships! When the Moon moves into this gregarious sign, you’ll feel the urge to call your friends, make plans, and get out and interact with those around you.

The Aquarius Moon could also have you feeling a little but more rebellious and spontaneous than usual. You may crave freedom and a distraction from your everyday life. If you’ve been feeling stuck in a rut, this is when you’ll decide to change up your routine or break old habits.

New Moon in Aquarius

New Moons are times of new emotional cycles and planting seeds for whatever we want to come next. The futuristic Aquarius New Moon encourages us to cut our past loose, or at least some of the things that we’re still hung up on. Aquarius is cool and detached, ideal for making a clean break from things that are no longer serving us so that we can boldly step into the next phase of our lives.

Our innovative spirit is off the charts with the New Moon in unconventional Aquarius! When the Sun and Moon team up in this brainy sign, we have a greater ability to expand our perceptions and come up with bright ideas. Aquarius sometimes dreams up concepts so far ahead of its time that they cannot be applied to current circumstances. However, the New Moon helps put us in touch with reality so that we can bring these groundbreaking insights back down to earth.

Full Moon in Aquarius

This Full Moon occurs when the cooperative Aquarius Moon opposes the individualistic Leo Sun. This cosmic coupling allows us see the difference between satisfying ourselves (Leo) and collaborating with others (Aquarius), and helps us understand the relationship between teamwork and individuality. The community-conscious Aquarius Full Moon reminds us that we are part of something larger than ourselves, and that acting on our ideas and ideals will benefit everyone.

You’ll probably wonder where your invitation is because it’s always a party when the Full Moon is in Aquarius! Full Moons spark an increase in activity and energy, and Aquarius is one of the most outgoing signs in the zodiac. You’ll be more apt to let your hair down and have a good time during this fun-loving Full Moon.

If you were born with the Moon in Aquarius

The Moon in Aquarius is an oddity because the Moon is about our gut instincts, our moods, and how we respond to things emotionally. The paradox here is that Aquarius is an Air sign which means it’s more concerned with mental functions than the messiness of human emotion. This doesn’t mean those with their natal Moon in Aquarius don’t have feelings. Rather, their feelings are more conceptual and intellectual.

Lunar Aquarians are incredibly observant people. Their minds are always on alert, constantly trying to figure out why people do the things that they do. This curiosity extends to other areas of life, and they enjoy learning about science, mechanics, and technology. They love to know how things work — you might even find them taking things apart and putting them back together!

Aquarius Moon sign people are natural humanitarians and are often involved in philanthropic causes of some kind. They are egalitarians at heart, and have strong beliefs about the welfare of others and human rights. Don’t let the Water-bearer’s aloof exterior fool you. Lunar Aquarians are passionate about helping others, and simply remain objective in an effort to avoid getting caught up in emotionally turbulent situations.

Whatever you create plants seeds in the minds of others. It happens in ways that expands into arenas that you don’t know about. Be careful of what you create, as it is an extension of you. Everything you are passionate about has the capacity to be a tool for teaching others. Keep living with the freedom of doing what comes naturally to you.

Your Erotic Tarot Card for October 17th is Death

Death

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Death card is most associated with one main word: transformation! There is inevitably an ending involved here, but because of it a new level of awareness can emerge. Examples include a breakup leading to freedom to pursue new sexual partners, or the end of negative thinking putting you on the path to sexual freedom while previous inhibitions fly out the window. The possibilities are endless, so take advantage of the new sexual energy that’s being created today and apply it to your own love life.

Justice is a love card. Justice selected you today because you need to know that you can advance dreams when you balance your needs with another’s. Both people need to feel loved, because feeling loved is what it is all about. Today, promise to be there for each other and deliver on that promise. If single, do you need to return a favor with a favor? Does someone owe you an apology, or you owe one?

Your Daily Tarot Card for Wednesday, Oct. 17th is The Chariot

The Chariot

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: victory, (material) success, mastery, graduation, completion!

Astrological Correspondence: Cancer

The Chariot symbolizes enthusiasm, competitiveness, and triumph. Success and victory are achieved by employing all powers at one’s disposal – physical, spiritual, and intellectual. The Chariot symbolizes the positive side of the self, being strong and self-controlled, balancing conflicting emotions, triumphing over obstacles, sustaining an effort, and support attaining goals, thereby leading the way to transformation and self-knowledge. A dictatorial approach, recklessness, and extreme ambition can be on the other, negative side of the equation.

Fall Activities by Zodiac Sign

Use Astrology to find fun this fall!


Autumn is a gorgeous season to be outdoors — the trees are decked out in their gold-and-russet finery, and there’s still enough sun to ward off the chill. So, tear yourself and your loved ones away from the all-consuming black hole of electronic devices, and pay a fun visit to Mother Nature. Where to go? Here are some ideas to jumpstart your imagination:

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You like to be where the action is. Chasing storms out in the desert or another flat expanse would get your heart pounding — just make sure you don’t get too close! You could also take a fast-moving train or boat trip to enjoy the fall scenery and feel the elements whizzing by. Fall is a good time to run a marathon, as the weather has cooled down some. It would help you get in shape before all that holiday feasting, too!

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

A long, slow drive to savor the season would be right up your alley. Plan an all-day or weekend getaway, with stops at favorite restaurants or new ones that you’ve researched online. As a destination, a hot springs would be fantastic — you could enjoy a hike in nature, then soak for hours in healing mineral baths. You’d also enjoy visiting a picturesque town with lots of fun boutiques where you could stroll and shop for hours!

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Because your mind is so over-stimulated, autumn is a good time to chill out. An outdoor activity that focuses you completely on a goal — such as rock-climbing or archery — would clear and refresh your mind. Just be sure to leave the cell phone behind! An out-of-town film festival or wine-tasting tour would satisfy your need for variety and help you relax. If you’re in good shape, a back-packing trip will really get you grounded.

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Get thyself away from the kitchen, and out into nature where you can drink in the nourishment of the elements. You could drive to the mountains, hike during the day, then bundle up in warm clothes and view the stars at night. Or, plan an outing to visit family who live at a distance, and have them guide you on a walking tour of the area. If possible, plan your trip for the Full Moon, when your energy will be high.

 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Horseback-riding would be an ideal autumnal excursion for you. Imagine yourself galloping through the trees in all their splendor, as the wind whips through your hair. Anything that gets your blood pumping, such as mountain-climbing or skiing (if there’s enough snow), would be good for both your heart and your spirits. If you need some motivation, be sure to reward yourself with a fine-dining experience afterward!

 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Planting a pre-winter garden, perhaps as a family or community endeavor, would be a lovely autumn activity for you. You could also round everyone up and visit a local farm or harvest fair to enjoy the animals and stock up on goodies like fresh goat cheese and homemade preserves. You might try planning an excursion to a lavender field to gather blossoms for sachets, or going on a hike and gathering white sage to make into fragrant bundles.

 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

A romantic stroll down a wind-swept beach at sunset with a loved one would be your perfect autumn excursion. Or, take a trek around a beautiful lake and watch the ducks at play. A shopping expedition to a part of town that features clothing and home accessories from another country (such as Korea, Africa or India) would also be a fun outing when done in tandem. Treat yourselves to an exotic meal while you’re there.

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Getting away from time to time is essential for you. An excursion to the deep, dark woods would restore your soul this autumn. Go alone or with someone special, and commune in silence with the trees. Because your element is “fixed water,” which translates to ice, why not visit an ice-skating rink for an extra-special adventure? The simple, down-home pleasure of a rodeo or outdoor concert should also please you.

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

You love exploring unknown territory, even in your own backyard. This autumn, get out a guidebook to your city or a neighboring one, and plan outings to places you’ve never been before. Visit an observatory to see the constellations, an art museum to enjoy the latest exhibition, or go whale watching on a cruise ship. You could also go on a guided Sierra Club hike to learn about your local flora and fauna.

 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You love the past, so plan an excursion this autumn to an antique mall or open-air flea market to forage for treasures. Touring a local historical landmark or natural history museum would also satisfy the part of you that appreciates antiquity. You enjoy desert landscapes — the vast expanses soothe your soul — so why not plan a desert trek? Even better if you can add a trip to a local hot springs to soothe your weary bones.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Autumn is a wonderful time to participate in team sports, from football to Frisbee. Even getting out to the park for a game of croquet or swinging in a swing can make you feel like a kid again. Because you’re interested in what’s new and progressive, you could also participate in a tour of “green” homes in your area, or learn how to landscape with edible plants by taking a weekend workshop on permaculture.

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Visiting a marine park would be the perfect autumn outing for your watery soul, as would whale watching or sailing. If you’re seeking something tranquil, spend a day at the spa getting pampered, then go out for a delicious fish dinner. If a high-flying adventure sounds more appealing, hot-air ballooning or hang gliding might do the trick. Going to an outdoor concert where you can dance your heart out would also be fun!
