The stage is set for a rather wild cosmic adventure during the last 24 hours of October. Trickster sky configurations definitely overwhelm treat-providing alignments as Venus and Uranus, both retrograde, make an opposition (1:46am) while Mercury quickly follows with a potentially disturbing, 150-degree link to often unpredictable Uranus (2:37am). By expecting the unexpected, there is a good chance you can avoid experiencing shocks to the system. Mercury moves on to parallel diligent, hard-working Saturn (6:42am) in a clear attempt to replace surprises coming out of left field with a sensible agenda to help human souls maintain forward progress. However, the combination of the crisis-inducing last quarter sun-moon phase (energizing 9 degrees of Scorpio and Leo at 9:41am), Venus retrograding back into Libra (12:43pm) and Mercury accosting investment-wise Vesta via a tense, 45-degree link (10:32pm) adds a discordant tone to the battle of nerves taking place with Uranus so influential in the psychic atmosphere of humanity. Your seemingly mission-impossible type job is to stay above the fray, not give in to any lower impulses, and remain a goodwill ambassador to everyone you encounter in need of a little extra tenderness.
