Energy Gateway Tips for Chaotic Times  Connecting with the Sacred

In these chaotic and often intense times, it’s helpful to remember that positive transformation energies exist alongside the challenging ones. Example: many things in our outer world are in turmoil and uncertain. Despite this, we have an opportunity to regroup our energy and access a higher view with meditation and connecting with the sacred at the core of all things. When we do this, we bring wisdom and perspective to our experience.

On some days, like the upcoming 11/11 energy gateway and 11/18 new moon, we can benefit from additional spiritual openings and insights. New awareness can come to the surface, allowing us to see ourselves more clearly. In those moments, solutions for longstanding issues can come to light. Letting go of the old may be easier too, once we have recognized we are ready to move on and embrace new adventures.

The Sacred and Lightness of Being

Key to your progress now is staying present and conscious to what you are creating. There are many distractions and situations that could get you off track and unfocused – like dramas with people you know and on the world stage. Do your best to self-monitor where you put your energy. The more present you are, the easier it will be to pull yourself back from dramas so you can go within and connect with the sacred. A daily connection with the sacred helps you to bring a lighter energy into everyday things and interactions with others. Your life flows better, you feel more connected, and you have the inner resource to face difficulties.

Intend now that you will use the energies of this month to deepen your connection to the sacred and discover expanded ways to express your higher purpose for this life.

11/11 Next Weekend

Since it’s November with 11/11 next weekend, consider exploring sacred numbers and the symbolic importance the ancients applied in spiritual rituals and in the architecture of temples and pyramids. Chances are, you or your ancestors were alive during one of the great civilizations of Egypt or Greece, having utilized sacred symbols to mark a special day. Invite a knowing of this.

Meanwhile, trust that there is a reason for everything that unfolds, and that you can learn and grow even when you feel stuck and immobile. Use the vast amount of love and light

11:11 Gateway into Full Embodiment

Dear Ones,

From the beginning of time there have been clear moments when the Portals of Awakening open for those who are called. The 11:11 Gateway is a collective, high-vibrational opening to assist the evolution of consciousness on the Earth at this time. The new Light frequencies are enabling this 11:11 Gateway to open for you to move into your original blueprint, your most divine essence, represented through your Light Body, in oneness with All That Is.

We will offer suggestions and visualizations at the end of the message so your own guidance system can empower a Light-filled 11:11 Ceremony if you are unable to join with others. It is highly encouraged that you work with at least one other person in sacred ceremony to honor the 11:11 Portal in Time.

You have been coded within for this awakening moment. It is another step in your evolution, one with great power and support. The Archangels stand at the 11:11 Gateway to hold you in strength and courage. Those who are attracted to this time of Grace, can avail themselves of the opportunity to soar, greatly empowered by the Angelic Realms. This conscious dedicated action, in harmony with Divine Light, will accelerate the evolution of consciousness within your own life and on the planet now.

The powerful energies you have been experiencing in your lives and on the Earth since August have led to activations within your Light Body Field. The Archangels have been diligently involved and are creating greater awareness within you of the field of Light around your heart. As you know, there is a magnetic field around your heart that is in the shape of a Torus.

This sacred geometry creates a regenerating field of energy which you can purposely integrate into your heart chakra. Because of the auspicious nature of the frequencies the Earth is moving into, we have activated your Torus regeneration field to include Divine Love as the main tool of awakening your new life.

This field is the beginning point for your new Merkaba – the light body field that works for your spiritual growth and ascension. This activation strengthens your awareness of the freedom that is possible when you expand your heart energy and open these new high frequencies into the cells of your body.

Divine Union

The 11:11 Gateway opens the way to Divine Union within yourself. The Archangels stand ready to welcome you into the new creative power of exalted awareness. Retraining and guiding the fearful thoughts that may plague your days are only a prayer away. Each prayer raises your vibrational frequencies and could be the one that unleashes the critical mass for Spontaneous Evolution within your life and on the planet. Imagine that your prayer is the turning point – the key that fits the codes for your newly evolved Self.

For the past few months, the downloads of Light have been working to empower your light body. With the 11:11 gateway the integration of that Light Body will now be fully possible. The intentions you hold for this time of your life are paramount.

Remember that at your true core, you are a radiant being of Divinity. This connection is key for your new life unfolding. It is the expanding field that activates the corresponding codes which allow your light body to come into manifest form.

Regardless of the energetic manifestations, you have witnessed in your own life or in the world, this field has been developing. You are literally growing your divine human body from the inside out.

Anchor Love

Before walking through the 11:11 Gateway, know that the love you anchor in your heart is key to the activation of the light body field. Fully integrating Divine Love within your being is creating the resonance that opens the way to fully activating your Divine Human Form.

As you walk through the Archangel’s 11:11 Portal, you will be synchronizing both the higher and lower expressions of yourself to bring forth your most authentic, blended and empowered Divine Self. This is a connection to your Soul that will allow you to more fully access and express yourself with Grace and Ease, to bring forth your highest Soul’s Destiny.

Call in your Angelic support and know that you are being inspired, guided and led through the 11:11 Gateway with full honor and respect for all the work you have given to the world during this time of massive change.

A ritual prayer offering for your own personal ceremony of the 11:11

Divine Presence and the Archangels of Light:

As I prepare to be guided through this 11:11 portal of time, I ask that the Light of Divine Love clear any disharmony within my energy field. I willingly let go of the burdens of old beliefs so I may stand tall and move freely through the gateways to Unity Consciousness and into my new Light Body Field.

Within the spaciousness of my cleared energy field, I ask that it be filled with the power of Divine Love, Harmony and Unity Consciousness. I ask to receive and radiate the strength and courage to embody this Divine Light and ground the presence of Love and Healing energy into the Earth to assist its evolution.

I join with the Angelic forces and the millions of those who work in the Light of God, as we are led through the 11:11 Gateway. I know that as one is lifted up, all are uplifted. I allow new patterns of exalted Light frequencies to engage my human structure in the completion of my crystalline light body  Union within my being with the Divine.

I dance through the Light-filled gateways, feeling your guidance and knowing that loving awareness for new possibilities in my life is being provided in every moment, with every heartbeat. I awaken in your Light and embrace my Soul’s gifts being offered to me now with supreme gratitude. You are giving me the Divine Connection to greater life and I gratefully receive this. I am honored to anchor this Light into the Earth as the presence of Nature awaits my awareness.

Hold me with Love and guide me as I step through this gateway into the higher dimensions, where my most Divine Self awaits me. May I bring greater Life, Peace and Joy through my being and be a blessing for the Earth.

For these and all your blessings, I say Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

So be it, Be it so.

Your Cosmic Weather Report for Saturday, November 11th

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

Thought for November:

‘Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn’.

Elizabeth Bury Lawrence (1644-1720)

There’s A Lot Going On!

Without doubt, it’s a busy time in the cosmos. Here are three significant astrological signposts this weekend:

1) Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries for the final time

This refreshing and constructive link between sensible, mature Saturn and lively, inventive Uranus has been a key pattern during 2017. Its first exact appearance was on Christmas Day, 2016.

Saturn and Uranus are dancing around all month long, making this a potentially positive phase for new ideas, product launches, coming up with fresh, imaginative ways to look at old problems, or bring cutting edge ideas into practical reality.

Saturn and Uranus meet at 25 degrees, slowly moving apart until November’s end. If you have planets or points between 24 – 28 degrees in your own horoscope, you’re likely to be in a good place to blend old and new, or traditional and modern in some way that benefits you and others.

2) November’s Moon Wobble

Today, 11th November, we have a Moon Wobble, which is  – technically – when the Sun aligns in one way or another with the Moon’s Nodes. This time, the Sun is in Scorpio, squaring off with the Nodes in Leo and Aquarius.

Moon Wobbles signal upheavals, dramas, and turbulence – emotions can feel stronger, and logical thinking weaker in the days before, and for several days afterwards. So the wobbly window to watch is from around 8th November – 15th November.

It’s not really the right time for taking important decisions that will have a lasting impact on our lives. Our thinking may be out of synch with what’s favourable in the long run. Resolving to stay calm and open-minded is a helpful way to negotiate this bumpy phase. This could require some effort.

And, just as during eclipse seasons, a Moon Wobble also signifies stormy weather, wild weather events, and often highlights the awesome, dramatic powers of nature.

The Moon’s Mean Nodes are currently at 20 degrees of Leo and Aquarius.

 

3) Big Love – Venus conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio

It’s always a special moment when the goddess of love dances with the king of the skies. Here is Venus in Scorpio, meeting with Jupiter for a glimpse of graceful hope and joy in all our romantic and social relationships. And perhaps a little smouldering passion in the shadows too.

Yet, with planets in Scorpio there could be a sting in the tail, jealousy can expand as easily as affection – but not if we’re trying our best to be aware of what’s going on.

This can be a delightful time of serendipity, so do watch for little opportunities or chance encounters – what develops from these could be very favourable to you, or even offer ways to increase your income. Scorpio is a financial sign, and Venus rules money – sometimes Venus in Scorpio likes to say ‘ker-ching’.

Financial affairs linked to foreign investments, overseas projects, or foreign business partners should thrive at this time.

Venus and Jupiter can also be giddily extravagant and hedonistic, so possibly this isn’t the ideal time to go shopping. Why not enjoy some sumptuous art, a pleasurable experience, or a stunning landscape instead?

Venus and Jupiter align between 5 – 7 degrees of Scorpio. If you have planets, points, or angles at those degrees in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn or Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces in your own personal horoscope you may sense this seductive energy more than most.  If you have planets in Leo or Aquarius, this could be a pivotal moment for you.

Venus and Jupiter align in Scorpio between 11th and 13th November.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, November 9th

Aries

Aries
Aries

There is pleasant intensity in your relationships and interactions today, and there may be helpful resources coming your way, dear Aries. It’s an excellent time to investigate a matter further. However, as the day advances, your focus tends to diffuse. Be wary of giving off mixed signals. The temptation may be to push when someone backs away or to retreat when someone pushes you. This is not the best time for healthy relating patterns, but consider that you might only need some personal space to get in better touch with what you actually want. Plans may not move ahead just ahead, and that’s okay now. You’re in a good headspace overall.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

The morning is excellent for getting to the heart of a matter, dear Taurus. Pluto helps to boost your sense of purpose as it forms a harmonious aspect to the Sun in your partnership sector. You may very well feel more purposeful through a significant other now. As the day advances, you need some rest or a break from action. Uncertainties with a friend or co-worker can be vague yet on your mind. While in a general sense you should watch that friendships don’t dissolve through unintentional neglect, if some friendships are changing or ending, this may be due to evolving interests. And, some ups and downs are not something to worry about unless the “downs” are growing to disproportionate levels. Watch also for slip-ups on the job due to distraction or daydreaming.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

Relationships are mutually beneficial this morning, dear Gemini. You’re in good shape for applying wisdom and experience to manage a situation. As the day advances, while it’s likely to get busier, it can also be less decisive or clear. This is due to a Mars-Neptune influence that has us questioning our actions. It’s, in fact, a useful slowdown moment – it’s a good time to reassess things or merely take a bit of time to understand what it is you truly want. Consider that it can be all too easy to believe what you want to believe (or fear) about a career or romantic matter today. It is also possible that you’re on the fence about an issue. Even if it’s uncomfortable, try to stay on that fence for the time being. You may very well need some time to process things before moving on.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

When it comes to a close relationship, if appreciation is due, it’s a great time to show it this morning, dear Cancer. Through a relationship or accomplishment, you can enjoy a nice confidence boost now. The Moon moves out of your sign this morning and into your resources sector, and you begin to seek out some order and predictability. As the day advances, clarity can fall by the wayside, however, and it’s best to accept this rather than fight it. Sometimes we benefit from some reassessment or slowing down, and this can be the time for doing so. Family or a home matter may involve confusing elements which can undermine your confidence or your overall happiness temporarily. Do what you can to uncomplicate your life by clearing your mind and possibly your schedule.

Leo

Leo
Leo

The Moon in your sign from the morning onward gives you visibility today, dear Leo, and a Sun-Pluto aspect this morning adds extra depth. It can also serve to boost your confidence. It’s a good time for new ideas and accomplishing more than usual. You might decide to rid yourself of something that’s outlived its usefulness since it’s easier to part with things now than it is on another day. As the day advances, you’d benefit from letting go a little, however. Uncertainty is likely, and this tends to heighten the more we push something that can’t be pushed. Money or intimate matters can be confusing now, and it’s best not to bank on something (or lend and borrow) until you have a better sense of what’s happening.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You could discover a project that genuinely absorbs your attention this morning, dear Virgo, and you can make significant progress. Don’t be afraid to show your creative side now. While you’re decisive and clear this morning, as the day advances, you may want to let go of overthinking or, temporarily, of ambitious projects. However, acting on a whim may not have especially desirable results, either, as you may not be entirely in touch with your desires and timing is slightly off. In addition, others may not be clear with you today. Whether deception is intentional or unintentional, or if it involves self-deception, there is a confusing element now that may require a slowdown. It may also be best to avoid significant purchases. The Moon moves into your introspective solar twelfth house this morning, which gives you another hint to take things easy – relax, decompress, and have back at it tomorrow.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

This morning, you may come across information that helps you feel more comfortable, respected, or secure, Libra. Continuing from yesterday, you see your priorities clearly. You’re in good shape to adjust your plans so that they more accurately reflect who you are today. As the day advances, you may want to slow down and allow for some uncertainty. A Mars-Neptune aspect suggests that you don’t have all the answers just for now, and you may have been pushing your desires a little too hard. Energy levels may be below par quite suddenly, but this could also be a signal that you are not as sure as you think you are, and you need to keep things simple for the time being. Taking a short breather can help clarify things for you.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

There is continued good energy for you to straighten out your life in some way this morning, dear Scorpio, as you feel compelled to take action to correct things that have been making you unhappy. Improvements made now are likely to be significant and lasting. Later today, take a sudden lack of energy or delay as a sign that your plans need refining, however. Life can feel more complicated, or you may feel a little drained and lacking purpose temporarily. Adjustments may need to be made to a creative project, or delays in a romantic relationship need to be dealt with and accepted. This is a time for reflecting a little before moving your plans forward.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

This morning, you enjoy continued sharp focus, dear Sagittarius. You might gain new and valuable insight into a money or business matter, or you get a fresh look at an old problem that empowers you. Later today, however, a Mars-Neptune aspect points to the need to let some things go. You could feel a little frustrated with stop-and-go energy that doesn’t suit your style. You prefer to have everything out in the open, but the day asks you to adopt a “wait and see” approach. You might find it challenging to depend on others’ actions or words, or some insecurity might keep you at home or in limbo instead of out and about. Allow yourself the extra rest you need, if this is possible, as you simply require a breather.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

You can be quite persuasive early today, dear Capricorn. You have more influence than usual. You’re in a good position to feel stronger through your connections as well as for investigating a matter further and gaining some critical insight. As the day advances, things seem less certain, and this suggests it’s better to rest and reflect than to push ahead. Be more precise than usual in any business or even personal communication to avoid overcommitting. Take advantage of a Saturn-Uranus aspect coming into influence that helps you feel more confident about bringing your ideas to fruition, particularly related to home and family.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The morning is excellent for investigating a matter further, dear Aquarius, and it makes sense, as a result, to tackle the harder jobs or to manage an issue that requires more focus than usual. You have a compelling desire to resolve problems and little patience for waiting things out. However, as the day advances, some uncertainty is likely, and it’s best to avoid pushing forward against resistance. Some reflection is in order. Money matters can be unclear or complicated temporarily, particularly those connected to travel or educational pursuits. Avoid signing contracts or making solid travel plans just for the time being. Indecision about where you are going in a general sense is likely now. However, you benefit from a Saturn-Uranus influence active this week that gives you a general sense of progress.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

If you’ve traveled a little off course in pursuit of a long-term goal or dream, dear Pisces, circumstances are such this morning that you clearly see what you can improve, and you’re on it! As the day advances, it’s best to take your foot off the accelerator as a Mars-Neptune challenge favors slowing down and getting in better touch with our desires before going forward. You may, in fact, all too easily draw and attract situations, people, or things that drain you or leave you feeling confused. It can be challenging to feel purpose or direction for an extended period now. Just when you possess the drive to go towards something, it either becomes elusive, or you question whether you want it. Use this time for creative instead of practical activities as much as possible.

 

If You Were Born Today, November 9

You are an articulate, sensitive, and intuitive person. You can also be quite stubborn! Your mind is such that you absorb a lot of diverse information and you can be a jack of all trades. You are a true problem solver. Your sarcastic sense of humor can be biting at times. Not everyone knows that it hides a sensitive, self-protective soul. You can easily get yourself into a rut because of your rather fixed, stubborn nature. Famous people born today: Lou Ferrigno, Carl Sagan, Dorothy Dandridge, Spiro Agnew, Anne Sexton, Analeigh Tipton, Scottie Thompson.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun this year, expanding your opportunities and boosting your confidence. This transit brings more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. This is a feel-good transit that boosts your popularity. Optimism is with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

This is a strong period for strengthening and supporting others as well as for building trust. Mutually beneficial relationships are in focus. This can be a pleasantly ambitious period.

There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.

Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. You’re in excellent shape for editing, refining, and overhauling your work and projects. Long-term alliances can be made this year. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent period for enjoying new opportunities, experiences, and perspectives. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well, but you need to make extra time for downtime. Useful contacts can be made during this period.

2017 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, November 10th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Close ones are pressuring you because they can see that a certain situation is making you unhappy. All you can see and feel is the anxiety it is causing. Use today to step away and look at the bigger picture.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
The way you look at life is changing and many of you bulls may in fact be thinking of making some of your most dramatic moves you’ve made in years. You won’t be doing it alone though, which makes this week’s events all the more interesting.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Some of the signs really do seem to be speaking for the sake of it. Try not take what others say too much to heart, especially if you know it has been said on impulse. Group events make your career a more interesting place to be.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Try distressing your life by de-cluttering. Many of you Cancerians have been gathering things you don’t really need in the home. Getting rid of them can help you see what you really need materially and emotionally.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You have gone through so many emotions that you are finding it hard to know which are real and which you are imagining. Children bring clarity and wise words. Sometimes it takes a fresh mind to see what older faces can’t.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You may not realise it, but subconsciously you have been building a base and it’s a good one. You didn’t know why you felt more secure, but when you look around today you will see why. You will also see what you no longer need.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Could a friendship be something more? This is something your sign is likely to have asked themselves before in the past. Take your time. Patience will give you true answers.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You say you want changes, but do you know what these changes are? You’ve been listening to what others tell you that you need. Use the wise attitude of Saturn, he is offering to help you find the answers in your own heart.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
There’s an urgent need in your chart to make extra funds. You are trying to find ways to make your options more flexible. You can and you will, you just have to relax if you want to convince others you are worth trusting in.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
I know you are a sign who needs to be loved unconditionally. However, your communication skills need working on. Listening when others talk is the best starting point you will find.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Do you think you have been acting spoilt? Or do you think you needed to be this dramatic to get the attention of those around you? I think you need to stop and wait for others to make the next move.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Positive anything is better than a negative nothing. Stay away from people and situations that give nothing back, before you become addicted to this pain.

 

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Hermit



The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and the everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can both learn and teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid mental and physical overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.

Your Personal Daily Love Tarot Card

The Fool

You deserve a partnership that deepens as you get to know each other. Wait for the person who has risen above commitment immaturity if commitment is your desire. The Fool reminds us that dating someone is not a mistake. It is falling in love and marrying them if it is not right. If your long-term relationship is encountering a difficult patch, now is the time to work together to rebuild.

Your Personal Daily Erotic Tarot Card

The Judgement

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

Psychic Tip of the Day

NEW SURPRISE
Your first big shock of the new year has arrived. It could be a welcome relief, but you may not know what to do with it. Were you expecting company?

Your Animal Spirit for Today

Porcupine

Porcupine has appeared in your reading today to bring a message of innocence and trust. Although Porcupine can throw quills when cornered, he is gentle, loving, and non-aggressive. Is there an area of your life that need Porcupine energy? Have you lost the ability to trust??

Brace yourself. The number 3 as it appears for you today signals that your spirit guides are close by, eager to help you with your needs. You have been on a path of taking care of yourself and your efforts are being rewarded. They have always been there, but you are in a position to sense them more now. Ask them for help with anything. Your mind, body, and spirit are integrated into a seamless unit. You are one with the Universe. Let the Universe benefit you as you send out your own positive energy.

Your Daily Charm

Today’s Meaning:
A course of events that cannot be altered has been set in motion within this aspect. Accept whatever happens in the near future and do not waste your time fretting about it–you can do nothing.

General Description:
This was a favorite charm in Egypt, worn in order to frustrate magicians, sorcerers and evil wishers from bewitching the wearer and stealing the soul from the heart; for it was the general belief that if the soul left the heart, the body would soon fade away and perish. The ancient Egyptians also believed that, after death, the heart was taken, in the underworld, and weighed against the symbols of the law; if found perfect, it was restored to the body, which at once came to life again and enjoyed everlasting felicity.

Crack the Cookie

The Wisdom of Buddha

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

A Little Humor for Your Day

Your Monthly Horoscopes for November 2017

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

It would serve you very well indeed to keep a sense of humour to the fore this month. Close ones seem to enjoy giving you the run around. What you’re about to find out though, is that you hold the power to make your own decisions. Don’t ignore this fact, but use it to get what you could not obtain last month. News of a baby links to major changes which should give you more ability to see what has really been going on in the lives of your close ones this year.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Family have not been easy to deal with and you may have had to pay out for something or someone that was not your responsibility. Games are being played in love, but it’s vital that you don’t join in with them. Your house of work is full of opportunity but you may be required to pay for something you don’t feel is your responsibility. By the 22nd you will realise why it is worth doing so.  An ex is on your mind for all the wrong reasons. Beware of getting in contact until you can work out why you are thinking about them.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

You begin this month with the Moon trying to convince you to get back in contact with those from your past. You will learn over the course of this month that you have friends and supporters in high places who are ready, willing and able to help you shape your life to your true needs and desires. Jealousy in love mid-month could well be your undoing if you’re not careful. Know how far is too far to go when making accusations you have no proof of. It is clear from the placing of Mercury in your chart that your imagination is working overtime.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

With your house of love looking full of mischief, yours is the sign others will be watching. Just make sure you know what to keep behind closed doors, remember what happened last year Cancer! The chance to try your hand at something you had given up is looked upon favourably by the stars. In fact, the majority of your sign should be feeling full of fresh hope and inspiration. Don’t entertain the childish behaviour of family any more. Back away until they learn how to behave.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You have been focusing on the little things and ignoring the big things. It’s time to bring your life back into some semblance of order. You know exactly who has been taking advantage of you and it’s time to put your foot down. Time spent going over paperwork and financial figures between the 12th and 18th can help you turn an average month into an above average one. Friends turn into lovers for some of your sign and November marks a time where you no longer worry about what looks right, only what feels right.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

I see from your stars you have had so much to cope with lately. Luckily for you, help is on hand from the 5th and you see the return and support of those who last month were ‘otherwise engaged.’ Knowing what you want from your career can help you skip the queue between the 20th and 28th. You find out you have friends in high places and no longer have to do things in the way other expect. If you were hoping to tie up a deal then this is the time you should do it.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

With the relationship sector of your chart demanding more of your time and attention, you are going to be feeling the need for questions and answers. Try not to accuse close ones of things you have no proof of, or it could well be your undoing. Knowing where you need to be professionally, can go a long way to you improving your reputation and repairing that damage caused last month. Your daily routine is under constructive change and you start to realise you want to and can simplify your life.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Don’t ask for things you don’t actually want just to test close ones. It would be far better for you to relax into November and just to wait and see what each day will bring. Unexpected travel after the 19th makes this a month you will not forget in a hurry. You’ll be making new friends which will last a lifetime and which are sure to lead to some unforgettable travel in the months ahead. Jupiter helps you to replenish missing funds. Just be careful of lending money to family. You are unlikely to get it back when they say.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

This is an excellent week to try and break bad habits. The stars are on your side for successful outcomes. I know that you have a full social calendar, but don’t you want to arrange some downtime to think about the path you want your career to take? Taking time out to focus on yourself is the key to you feeling more confident about where your life is going. An argument in the family around the 25th should not really concern you. Try not to get involved if you don’t have to. A more psychic nature for the last three days of the month tells you much.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Try not to tell tales on your close ones or it will come back on you. It would be far better for you to spend your time on tying up the many loose ends which October left for you. Trips you make for personal reasons make you very emotive and force you to do a lot of soul searching. Try to be more honest with yourself my friend. It is the only way your heart can give your head the answers it needs. Don’t be afraid to commit to training which will benefit your career. Mars sees you like a sponge absorbing facts this month.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Stop leaving such important tasks until the last minute, or you will cause yourself unnecessary stress. Your sign is known for their ability to handle more than one thing at once. Try to make a game plan for yourself sooner rather than later and you’ll soon see that you’re firmly back in the driving seat. A new attraction after the 17th makes you question what you thought you wanted from your personal life. Take your time, there is much for you to learn this month before you make any permanent personal decisions my friend.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

An unpredictable mood is making it hard for you to know what you want or who you should trust. Try to trust in yourself and what you want. You have put your own needs to one side for so long that you have forgotten how to make yourself a priority. Preparation is everything in your work over the coming days and weeks so make sure you go over what you know, even if you think you are well prepared. It’s the key to you coming across as the ultimate professional. Travel plans you make for the end of this year say a lot about where you want your future to lead.

 

Your Dark Stars: Horoscopes for November 2017

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES
Do you have a quirky goal or unusual ambition? Are you and a group of friends trying to achieve something special? If so, now’s the time to focus on whatever is close to your heart, and ignore those who’re trying to rain on your parade. And, of course, with Mars in your opposite sign, Libra, you’ll have to find tactful ways to deal with your critics, and subtle ways to sidestep anyone who is actively trying to block your progress. Mid-November could be particularly irksome, while a stand-off at the end of the month is also dramatic – yet could be avoided if you resolve to remain icily calm – easier said than done, admittedly. An old lover or friendly ex-partner could turn out to be very helpful to you at this time. Perhaps there’s still a little spark there? Meanwhile, some heartening financial news, offers of support, or a shy, new admirer promise to put a smile on your face.

TAURUS
Much of November is all about other people. How do you feel about your relationships? How do others feel about you – do you have any idea? For some of you the possibility of a shimmering romance is deeply alluring. Your more poetic side is activated by November 4th’s powerful Taurus full Moon, a Moon of strong feelings,  deep attractions, music and cake. This theme also activates your intuition and artistic flair, something you’ll want to pursue now, and during the year ahead. Your challenge is to keep things flourishing in a creative, spiritual sense while avoiding anything involving dubious get-rich-quick schemes or risky liaisons with strangers. Something magical could appear mid-month, when Venus and Jupiter align – do welcome whatever arrives on your doorstep, but don’t feel bad if you want to take a little time to process your thoughts and feelings. It’s the right thing to do.

GEMINI
Thought-provoking conversations and surprising news are sprinkled throughout November.  But you may not know what you really think until things come to a head at the Gemini full Moon in early December. Mars in charming Libra is boosting your creative, playful side – and if you’re single some exciting attractions could pop up out of nowhere. Some of you fancy taking a few risks – if these involve any kind of financial gamble, take great care and be exceedingly cautious. Meanwhile, other interesting possibilities are brewing as you question current goals, and review the way you earn your living. There are lucky chances around, especially if you want to explore a wider world – perhaps through travel, perhaps by extending your knowledge and skills. Saturn leaves your opposite sign, Sagittarius, next month. So it’s a useful time to think about where you are with your partnerships, longstanding friendships, and commitments. What would you like to nail down, and what would you like to change in 2018?

CANCER
Deep feelings and a delicious kind of restlessness rise up with the potent full Moon in Taurus on 4th November. It illuminates neglected parts of your imagination, reminding you just how fabulously intuitive you really are. This is more than just a passing mood, for with Jupiter now in Scorpio you’ll benefit from a fertile year of enhanced spiritual, romantic, and creative energy. There’ll be all sorts of domestic things to sort out now, and chances are you’ll be more involved with visitors and neighbourhood projects than usual. These familiar distractions cannot prevent you from sensing a shift in your world. Those feelings, subtle at first, strengthen as the weeks pass. So if you’d like to make changes to your intimate life, your artistic outlets, or your relationships with family and children – a clear Scorpio new Moon (18th) might be a positive time to set your intentions – if only in private. There’s no rush – why not just feed your imagination and see what happens?

LEO
Happiness lurks close to home in November. It’s a fortunate time for home improvements, or setting up a home office. But digging a little deeper, you could find inspiration in your family, or unearth a fascinating story about an ancestor. Whatever you discover this month can be the start of a new journey, as the planets encourage you to dabble in a little alchemy and learn how to blend what’s established with what’s unusual and different. A spirit of adventure refreshes relationships too – and some of you could find a very different kind of friendship or love affair this month. November’s full Moon in Taurus (4th) brings something to a head at work, or encourages you to focus on your goals – do they still matter, or are you in the mood for something fresh or unexpected? What surfaces now hints at a fork in the road ahead. When Uranus enters Taurus next May it’s opening a phase of change for your life direction and even your status. Coming events cast their shadows before them.

VIRGO
Your conversations and communications this month are way more entertaining and informative than usual. It’s quite amazing what you can find out, or how a casual chat can lead on to all manner of things – including boosting your income, finding a hot date, or finally tracking down a reliable plumber or electrician. Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio encourage you to use your wit and charm – so whether you’re on social media, or applying for a job, your subtle charisma can attract many positive situations and some magical, mystical people too. Since Mercury will be retrograde in December, you might like to strike while the cosmic iron is hot. Otherwise, you should be prepared to review things next month. If you want to plan a trip, or if someone is planning a journey to come and visit you, it’s worth making meticulous arrangements now. Mercury will be backtracking from 3rd – 23rd December in travelling Sagittarius, just in time for the festive season. So it’s worth having a Plan B up your sleeve, just in case.

LIBRA
With Mars in Libra you’ll want to get things moving. But tread softly – there’s no need to push too hard. You’ll only come up against the law of unintended consequences if you do – particularly between 15th-20th and again at the end of November. Others can send your best-laid plans flying – so it’s better to prioritise teamwork and bide your time. Your ruler, Venus, smoulders in Scorpio during November, bringing a focus on cash and values. That’s a major year-long theme anyway, thanks to Jupiter – when the two meet up mid-month you could benefit from a little windfall or some artistic and romantic inspiration. Avoid speculation though –  instead, why not try opening up to some higher thoughts and spiritual vibrations? With an open mind, you’re in a great position to benefit from exciting ideas and possibilities that crop up in conversations or during short trips. An old friend or contact could really surprise you, in a good way too. Take care of your wellbeing, keep options open, and enjoy a thought-provoking month.

SCORPIO
Your uncanny ability to sense any disturbance in the force is both strong and spooky this month, with planets and a new Moon in Scorpio strengthening your mind, body, and spirit. It’s a fortunate beginning to your astrological year ahead. Jupiter is now in your sign, bringing a year of expansiveness and all manner of possibilities. Your challenge is to refine your sense of timing, and listen carefully to your intuition. Jupiter and Neptune will be boosting our sensitivity to all things mysterious, musical, and creative now, and during much of 2018. So what you have to offer is likely to be very popular – whether that’s your imagination, quiet loyalty, or fearless emotional depths. You’ll be right in tune with the times. Others may have important things to say to you early in November, and you might need to win them over. But with Venus in Scorpio, your charisma should dazzle – particularly between 16th – 21st. Use it wisely, and use it well.

SAGITTARIUS
Saturn is coming to the end of his visit to Sagittarius, moving to Capricorn in late December. So it might be helpful to look at what you’ve learned over the past couple of years. Some of you may have felt restricted in some way, while others have worked very hard without gaining huge rewards. Yet the foundations you’ve created during this time are solid as a rock, and you’ll be able to build on them and reap rewards in the future – what you’ve established will endure. There’s a lively, flirty social atmosphere on and off this November, with enough to keep you amused. However, with your mighty ruler, Jupiter, in Scorpio now you’ll want to explore your more intuitive, sensitive side too. Paying attention to gut feelings and vivid dreams will guide you towards all manner of interesting possibilities, and perhaps prompt some new routines designed to boost mind, body, and spirit. It doesn’t have to be complicated – a daily walk or some meditation could be all you need to unlock your inner treasure chest.

CAPRICORN
Changes in how you deal with your home or family are partly out of your control. And some of your feelings, questions, and ideas haven’t been clear. But if you’ve been puzzling over what to do next, you can expect enlightenment this month when Saturn meets innovative Uranus for the final time. Your ideas may surprise you, or others. Meanwhile, much that’s creative, romantic, or even spiritual is waiting for you to notice its dreamy presence in your world. It may be hard to find a space, but it’s worth making the effort, particularly at the romantic full Moon in Taurus on 4th November. Although Mars in Libra brings action and focus to your career and your desire to forge ahead, you may find yourself questioning your current aims and ambitions. Talking to close friends will help, as will tuning in to your own instincts. As you approach the arrival of Saturn in Capricorn in December, you’re crossing a bridge into a pivotal new phase of life. Taking the time to carefully consider all your options now is the first step.

AQUARIUS
Thinking and talking about your personal world is highlighted this month. Everything from friendships to your parents – and even ancestors – seems to have a deeper meaning, or a message for you. Take it step by step, and bounce ideas and notions around a bit. What you discover has a part to play in decisions you make about your home, your ambitions, and your desire to understand how you arrived at your current situation in life. Something demands attention at home early in November, with the full Moon in Taurus. However, with a new Moon in Scorpio on 18th, you don’t need to rush into any new projects or make sudden moves – adjustments will be needed, or compromises made. With Uranus, your ruler, reversing in Aries until January 2nd, you’ll see that the past, and certain charming individuals from the past, has a vital role to play in current events. Unexpected insights or news at the end of November make it clear that flexibility is your key to finding peace of mind, happiness, and success.

PISCES
You’ve got plenty of strong, emotional support around you this month with Sun, Venus, and generous Jupiter in Scorpio. If you’d like to explore new skills, knowledge, or plan a special trip – now’s an excellent time. And even if your desires are less focused, you’ll benefit from seeing a movie with friends, or listening to music you’ve never heard before. You might even find a new friend, or romantic possibility. Feeding this side of your complex personality is healing and energising – you may have neglected it this year. Saturn in Sagittarius has brought responsibilities and hard work, and for some of you it has been difficult to see much beyond the daily grind. But Saturn is on the move, heading for Capricorn in December. Bit by bit this will change your focus and attitude towards goals and ambitions – and you’ll see just how much you have achieved too. Jupiter in Scorpio will be encouraging you to dream of far horizons until next November – so why not free your visionary Piscean spirit and go on a quest?

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, November 4th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Your ability to make changes quickly when under pressure has been, and will continue to be, your saving grace. Be careful telling tales on those you work with. You may have to work closer to them than you think in the future.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
If you think you can, you will and if you think you can’t, you won’t. Having faith in what you want will help you to keep centred. It will also ensure you don’t get led astray by someone you’ll soon realise is a negative influence.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Don’t talk down to those you meet today. You won’t realise it, but there’s an arrogant side to your chart this week which could see you making enemies of those you have only just made up with.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You’ve attracted such a vast array of characters into your life. There will be an opinion for all subjects if you need it. The most important question is love, but you’re the only one who can answer that, from your heart and lips.

 

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Money matters come to the fore. You find yourself arguing over the little details instead of the big ones, as certain characters try to lead you away from the mistakes they have made. Make your own plans and trust your own instincts for answers.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You begin to feel more contented with your life and where it’s going. However, you’re still being too easily ruled by those you feel indebted to. Make a break. Be a leader not a follower. New career options are about to make you smile.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Make more of an effort to listen when others speak today. There is much you can and will learn. A new flirtation links to the workplace, so make sure you know what you want from it before you end up with an ‘awkward atmosphere.’

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Love and hate can sometimes be very close together for you, too close for comfort even. Try to take a step back today and look at things from other people’s perspectives. You will soon see you have more reason to make up than fall out. Ring now for a relationship revelation.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try not to say negative things about those you meet, but instead work on finding out why they have said or done the things that you can’t stop thinking about. Fellow Sagittarians help you blow off some much-needed steam. Seek them out.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Our life is what our thoughts make it. You have spent far too long trying to please other people. Your element of earth has pushed you into trying to make sure everyone else is ok before you are.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Open your eyes. See the truth of the situation before you. An air sign such as yourself should have learnt by now that no situation is straight forward. Being flexible is what will make your journey a more exciting one.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Make the effort to re-read any forms or documents, especially those that will require your signature. You make friends in high places and you learn where you were going wrong in a financial issue.

 

If You Were Today, Saturday, November 4th

You possess a versatile and creative mind, yet you have a strong appreciation for concrete results. Although you indulge in the pleasures of life, you are also very hard-working and take much pride in your work and in your hobbies. You deal with pressures rather well, and you are able to right yourself quickly when things do go wrong. Inside, you are passionate and ardent. Your sensitivity and your emotional nature are not very apparent on the surface of things. You have the ability to stick to a project and make sure it functions properly. Determined and quietly bold, you have what it takes to succeed in life. Famous people born today: Matthew McConaughey, Sean Combs, Walter Cronkite, Laura Bush, Loretta Swit, Markie Post.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.

You can be feeling good about your work, obligations, and commitments, which are seen not as burdens, but rather as purposeful activities. Independent work is favored this year. You are more disciplined and efficient.

This is also an excellent period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier, as it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions.

You have a larger than usual desire to improve and learn during this period of your life. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Your broader perspective on matters keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

There can be ups and downs in your personal relationships and romantic attachments at times this year, but ultimately your social or romantic life settles in. The same may be true of finances for many. Destabilizing circumstances can be part of the picture, but these motivate you to improve and level out your situation.

There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.

You’re taking your responsibilities to others more seriously this year. You could find that you’re attracted to unusual pleasures and objects this year, but that you ultimately know how to save and spend wisely.

On business and financial levels, you’re best off if you develop and improve existing businesses than breaking entirely new ground. In fact, you’re in excellent shape for editing, refining, and overhauling your work and projects. Long-term alliances can be made this year. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

Physical attractiveness and energy levels are excellent during this period. You’re more comfortable with yourself and this increases your popularity.

This is an excellent period for getting organized. You’re in better shape than usual for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities. You are taking your social or romantic life more seriously this year although there can be some ups and downs as you make important changes. Useful contacts can be made during this period.

 

2017 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2018 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, November 5th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You’re sick of being lied to. You experienced it in the past and you’re not going to go through it again. What you have to do first, is prove that those around you were telling tall stories. Or do you? Move on. Don’t look back.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Travel brings new relationships and also puts a very large smile on your face. You begin to experience new aspects of your personality and you like what you see! Don’t rule out planning new journeys at the last minute.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Stop trying to make things more complicated than they have to be. Try to focus on enjoying the simple things in life. It will help you to get your life into perspective. A flirty feel could see some of you saying things you’ll regret.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The feeling that you need to get things tied up is strong. There will be a fear of starting new things, but with good reason. You want to know that you have cast yourself in a professional light. Don’t worry, you have!

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
I know you’ve been feeling out of your depth, but I also know that you don’t have to be. Trust in your instincts and do what they tell you today. You have all it takes to be successful, both personally and professionally.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Happiness comes not from having much, but from being content with little. You know you aren’t materialistic, but you come across that way when you test close ones to see how far they will go for you.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
You’ll find it hard not to believe some of the rumours going around this week. Act only on what you see, not what you hear. Many of the signs are talking for the sake of it thanks to the arrogance of Mars.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Work and play both take centre stage and you begin to see that you were experiencing the life others told you to live, rather than the one you wanted. You’re back though Scorpio and you’re stronger than ever.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
You can do anything you want if you stick to your plans Sagittarius. Part of the problem has been that you’ve spent too much time doing things that look right, instead of the things that feel right. Ring now so I can help you find your self confidence.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Sometimes, it’s only when we don’t know what we are doing that we discover the right path in life. Old contacts hold the key to you sorting out new problems in business and financial areas. Ring me so we can put the magic back into your month.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
I’m so happy it’s not the beginning of the month any more. You’ve had chance to enter November now and get an idea of what’s expected of you and you’re about to learn that you can easily do what others expect.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Regretting wasted time, leads to more wasted time. Knowing what you want is half the battle. All you have to do is admit your dreams and not the aspirations of those around you. Family proves demanding.

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Chariot



The Chariot is the representation of Victory and the personality traits required to attain victory. The Chariot indicates self-awareness and control. Courage—the ability to overcome fear and confront the unknown head on–is a primary ingredient of any victorious campaign and is denoted by the Chariot. So too is force of will. Often success is as much the product of will power and a refusal to surrender as it is anything else. The Chariot also represents the healthy personality of someone who believes in themselves; someone who can take control of the situation and bring events to a positive end. His successes come in competition with others.

The Witches Daily Horoscopes & Divination for October 31

The Witches Daily Horoscopes & Divination for October 31

Weekly Forecast: October 29 – November 4, 2017

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.  

Weekly Forecast:  October 29 – November 4, 2017

11/3 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):

This energy has to do with your obligations within the context of relationships. They are not difficult obligations (in this case) but more emphasis is placed on enjoying serving those you love. This is also what I would call the “keep it real” energy, regarding relationships. This energy makes you want to really sit down and define your terms within your relationships (which I am a total advocate of). It’s really hard to grow to the next level when each person is not clear on what the other expects. Of course, this starts with you knowing what you want/don’t want and what you are willing to compromise about so you can articulate that clearly.

11/3 ~ Sun (authentic Self) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):

This energy triggers your idealistic, altruistic inclinations, but remember that help has to be invited. But if you have the energy to share & to spare, then dedicate your Self to something greater than you. Choose a cause to support or help those less fortunate for the sheer pleasure of giving. If your energy is low at this time, it is better directed inward. If you can, take some extra time in intentional solitude, praying, meditating and connecting to Spirit this week, you will be rewarded with deep revelations & mystical discoveries within you. It’s a great time to do divinations, ritual or ceremony if you’re into that. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any ‘messages’ that come through or to you. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and dream a little about where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically in 6-months to a year from now.

11/4 ~ Venus (values) ~oppose~ Uranus (freedom):

Any time Uranus is involved, it becomes the “wild card” and hard to predict how things will unfold, but right now there is a push-pull between your apparent values and your unique individual self. Venus also represents relationships, so you may begin an unusual relationship or you may have something unusual happen in an established relationship.  It is not necessarily a “good/bad” thing, as much as an unpredictable shift or sudden awareness, which requires some compromise & integration. This energy works beautifully if your personal Truth and values are in alignment. It will be very disruptive if they are not. Be open and flexible, while looking for the win/win situation for all involved.

Nightmares of the Zodiac

What’s your Sun sign’s deepest fear?


It’s that time of year again, when Americans like to scare themselves with ghosts, goblins and the rest of Halloween’s spooky tomfoolery. You might call it our annual fear fest, but are these truly our worst fears? Of course not. To find qualms that really make our skin crawl, we need to dig a little deeper.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You are at the end of a long line hiking up a tall mountain. The group’s leaders are Virgos, arguing about which way to go, while everyone else plods along at a snail’s pace. You’re going to have to push your way to the head of the line and stage a coup … or tear your hair out. Which will it be?

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Wait a minute … whose car is that in your garage? Okay, the one you had was breaking down every other day and you were thinking about replacing it … but it was a comfy jalopy and, besides, you hadn’t finished your research. Now someone has gone and made up your mind for you. That’s not fair!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Can’t someone just change that muzak? If orchestral string covers weren’t bad enough, you work in a room all alone, your iPhone is dead and you can’t even get your browser to load. Communication breakdown … your private version of hell … has finally come true.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

As you open your door, your friends shout “surprise!” It’s your birthday and they’ve got an all-you night planned. As you squeeze between co-workers you barely know, they start projecting a PowerPoint featuring your naked baby pictures, every bad hairdo and ugly date you’ve ever had, plus your fat phase.

Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)

Amidst booing and hissing, olives and cocktail umbrellas flying through the air … you’re cowering on a karaoke stage after what you thought was a knockout rendition of Wild Thing. Returning to your table, you find your date has bailed and left a napkin note telling you what a complete loser you are.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)

You’re behind a counter, facing a long line of angry customers waiting to tell you in detail about everything that’s wrong with the product you designed. That’s right, the one you slaved over for years and were sure would be a best seller. They don’t want exchanges or refunds … they want your head!

Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)

Your partner’s quirks have been gnawing on your last nerve for what seems like eons. You’re about to explode when … sure enough, like clockwork … he/she pulls one more stunt. Arms flailing, screaming at the top of your lungs, you lunge for his/her throat. So much for your famous emotional control, Libra.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You trust your new sweetie implicitly, but that doesn’t keep you from indulging in a little snooping while he/she is in the shower. Rummaging through bedside drawers, you discover a set of sexy underwear you’ve never seen before. Two can play at this game, you vow, as you plot your revenge.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The jury has come back with its verdict and you’re guilty. You’ll be spending the next decade of your life in one place. But don’t worry … it’s a minimum-security prison with a lovely view of the freeway. You can still dream about all the places you’ll travel when you get parole.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Who’s that waving his finger in your face? Why, it’s that guy you used to supervise before your job was outsourced. Now you’re wearing stonewashed jeans and sitting at a tiny workstation in a row of cubicles that never ends. What happened to your Gucci suits and private corner office?

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

A security guard meets you at the entrance to your new workplace and whisks you away to a room where you undergo a complete makeover. When you’re finally escorted into your new office, you discover everyone looks exactly like you. Next on your newbie schedule … brainwashing!

Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20)

You hear a loud knocking on your door and open it to find three IRS men ready to rip into your tax return. They want you to account for every latte expense you listed and are suspicious of your self-employed income, too. Tearfully, you open the shoebox where you shoved your receipts to face the sorting and organizing you dread

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, Samhain

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Mars pushes you to say things you would normally think but never say. You begin to understand that by bringing everything out into the open, everyone will have the chance to be more honest about what they want.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
You’re trying to make sense of what you want, but things you have recently heard have left your heart and head in a spin. Don’t be pushed into what you don’t want but instead insist on having more time.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
You will find this week that if you love life, then life will love you back! Don’t be forced into doing something you know you will regret. Remember you’re a Gemini and that sometimes your stubborn nature can be a blessing.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The Moon gives you reason to trust those you would not normally place faith in. You see with ease that by feeling your way through events, you build up confidence in yourself and all you do.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
I know you want to see things progress quicker than they have been, but sometimes it’s more important to take your time to build a more secure base for yourself so that it can last. Ring now to hear who I think is bringing negativity into your life.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You seem to be looking at life with fresh eyes and fresh inspiration. Finally, you’ve moved on from what and who was dragging you down. Good times await if you can find the confidence to say yes to that you normally say no to.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. You work out that in order to enjoy life, you have to try things which make you feel nervous and scared. You’re about to discover a new life goal. Ring now so I can help you enjoy this ride you’re on.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Someone you didn’t think was on your side, is about to prove that they always were by the words they offer and the actions they take today. Things will not go to plan today, but they will teach you much about what you want. Ring now to talk love and commitment.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
You yearn for a healthier life style and today’s the day many of you will put it into action. You realise you want a constructive plan and that you’re better for it. This means no longer contacting the person who brings you down.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)?
The very thing you were beginning to give up hope on now stands a chance of actually happening now that you’re willing to work as a team. That stubborn mood which overtook you last week slowly starts to melt away. Ring now to hear how the Moon brings you a confession.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Life is like photography. We develop from the negatives. Work on making sense of what recently occurred and how you can move on from it to be a better person. Get the things on your agenda for the week done today

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
A happier Pisces is slowly but surely evolving. You know now that you were accepting second best when you deserve the better. Announcements you make tonight most definitely distance you from those who are no good for you.

If You Were Born Today, October 31

You are a dependable person who can also be spontaneous and unique while steady and reliable overall. Some people might call you hard-headed! You can stick to something (or someone) longer than most people, and your ability to read between the lines is outstanding. People generally admire your conviction and your wit, and you inspire trust in others due to your “no-nonsense” approach to life. Family oriented and committed, you are also typically quite organized.

Famous people born today: Jane Pauley, Deidre Hall, Dan Rather, Xavier Roberts, John Candy, Michael Landon, Rob Schneider, Chris Tucker, Piper Perabo, Willow Smith.

Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, November 1

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You feel you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, but I know you’re more than capable of making a success of what’s ahead. Your time with an ex is on your mind and thoughts today help you decide on a current relationship issue.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Although you have experienced a rather independent mood in your work recently, today sees you having to work as a team. Not easy for a stubborn sign such as yourself, but try your best.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
The spotlight is on you and others will be coming to you for advice and attention, or just to bask in your glow. Think before you speak, as others will be acting on what you say today.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Be careful when telling others’ secrets today. You would be far better to let people share their own news in their own time. Being more open with family can help them accept a new situation in your life.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Life isn’t a dress rehearsal, grab it Leo! I know you’re frightened of rejection, but I know that with the clarity Saturn is offering, it will be easy for you to see which situations can work and which you need to move on from.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Can you feel the excitement from the stars Virgo? This is the month in which many of your sign will be realising who you want to spend your life with. It’s also the month you’ll be breaking contact with those who have been using you.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
You can’t expect things to go to plan today, but you can expect to see sides of certain characters that have never been revealed before. From here on in there will be the knowledge that you can and will work as a team.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Try to resist the temptation to get involved in business that does not involve you. You could end up putting someone’s nose out of joint after you only just made up with them. Ring now to hear how flirtations could be the making of something long term and successful.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
You haven’t failed until you quit trying Sagittarius. I know you’re low on energy levels, but taking some time out to do something which inspires you will give you back your passion for your journey.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Don’t settle for anything than the best Capricorn. You should know by now that you’re a sign that needs a mental and a physical attraction. The Sun helps you to heal a rift you were beginning to lose sleep over. Ring now for a glimpse at your future.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Opportunities multiply as they are seized. Begin by taking life one day at a time. You have been worrying about what might happen next, when you should be working on what is happening now.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Don’t let jealousy stand in the way of a perfectly good friendship. For a sign who is usually so confident, you’re allowing little words and actions to hit you like a tidal wave.

 

We hate to cut and run but we have some items that we still have to pick up for tonight’s rituals and spells. Besides everyone is running around here like a bunch of wild monkeys running and you can’t get nothing done.  We wish everyone a very beautiful & magickal Samhain!!

The Witches Digest for Wednesday, October 25th (Daily Divination)

The Witches Digest for Wednesday, October 25th

(Daily Divination)

Tarot Card of the Day

Ten of Wands


This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

The Ten of this suit represents an all-out effort, an obsessive commitment to a task which demands everything you’ve got. The person shown in decks with pictures is in no position to rest until he makes it inside the stout walls of the well-defended castle in the distance. If he fails, he will become prey for the highway robbers after dark.

It doesn’t matter that he’s overloaded and underfed. With this card, you have to do whatever it takes to get to completion — nothing can be allowed to interfere.

Tarot Love Card of the Day

The Emperor


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

The Pope


The Pope represents pure masculine energy, and even if you’re female you’re going to be identifying more with your male counterparts today. The Pope shows you that coming to terms with past mistakes and taking responsibility for them in the present eases sexual tension, so let go of the past to free yourself from your inhibitions. You actually have quite the skill set when it comes to making sexual moves, but waiting until the time is right before taking the plunge can be a real turn-on. Let the anticipation build until you can’t take it anymore!

Psychic Tip of the Day

TWO DREAMING

This is a great day for the two of you to begin again. Discuss your plans for the year ahead and grow together as you plan your growth. Are you excited about the future?

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Magus



The Magus is the physical embodiment of decisive action based upon knowledge and aimed squarely at specific goals. Thoroughly Yang by nature and firmly set in the material world, he none-the-less has a powerful spiritual connection as well. His knowledge, wisdom and skill are all encompassing. He is complete. His power as a creator is unmatched on our earthly plane. He is self-aware and unafraid to act. His enormous strength gives him the freedom to act as he chooses. However, responsibility comes with that freedom. Because he is not bound to the restraints of others he must choose how to act. The question that always lies before him is should he act morally, or forsake ethics for personal gain.

As a daily card, The Magus suggest you currently possess a tremendous power and freedom to move your life in any direction you choose. In short, you can make things happen. Your true challenge at the moment is to move forward without trampling the dreams of others. Fortunately your moral fiber is strong as well, and will guide you down the right path.

Your Animal Spirit for Today
October 25, 2017

Wolf

Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self. If you’re giving yourself away to your own detriment, you are living in opposition to Wolf medicine. Return to balance—and begin feeding your emotions, your mind, and your body.

 

Your Karmic Number for Wednesday, October 25th

You are a natural leader today. People will look to you to clear a path for them to follow. You may be asked to take the reins of a project or situation because of your ability to listen and provide clear communication. Don’t be shy or doubt your abilities – you have unique talent that only your own self-doubt can hide. Abundance flows to you when you step into the role of leading others. If you aren’t offered an opportunity, look for one as a volunteer or even start writing a blog.

The Witches Digest for Thursday, October 19th (Part 3, Horoscopes & Other Divination)

The Witches Digest for Thursday, October 19th

(Part 3, Horoscopes & Other Divination)

New Moon Leap

The 10/19 New Moon comes with an opportunity to make a big leap forward. Now is a perfect time to energetically prepare for this opening. Continue reading to understand your potentials at this juncture, and where to place your focus for optimal success.

Background

We are at a crossroads involving how we relate to one another and the Earth. That crossroads is coming more into focus at the Libra New Moon. Libra is associated with balance, and certainly, we have a lot out of balance at the moment.

Since the planet Uranus is involved with this New Moon, we’re looking at electric and radical evolutionary change. It’s as though the energies are arriving like a lightning rod – pushing us individually and collectively to reconsider our very old learned patterns involving power and love. Up for close examination is the dysfunction in relationships, as well as what we want from them.

This includes relationships with people, and also with the divine. Over the ages, humanity learned that the divine was somehow distant from the average person – even punitive.  In “Earth’s Pivotal Years,” I give some of the history of how we learned to feel separate from the divine. The result of that fundamental lie is mirrored in all other relationships that we have.

The juxtaposition of energies at this New Moon can help us to look more directly and more deeply at ourselves in relationship with others. As we do this, we have an amazing opportunity to transcend outmoded views and connect with our unlimited quantum nature. To the extent we can do this during the New Moon window of time now through 10/22, we connect more deeply with our spiritual heart.

Antidote of Spiritual Heart

The spiritual heart is the high or enlightened heart. It lies at the core of your being, just waiting to be tapped. When you connect with it, you have a divine antidote for relationship troubles of all kinds.

In fact, the spiritual heart is the antidote to the world’s current crisis of fear, division, perpetual war, and manipulations of all kinds. Those energies cannot co-exist in the presence of the spiritual heart – embodied, accessed, and expressed by humanity as a whole.

Below are some tips to help you prepare for this New Moon opportunity.

3 Tips to Prepare for New Moon

FIRST, bring the theme of relationships into your meditations and inner work. Invite a knowing of key dysfunctional dynamics that block harmony with others. A good question to ask internally as you hone in on relationships: “What keeps me from being fully open and authentic with others?”

SECOND, consider a specific relationship which is like a barometer of your wholeness and ability to relate in an enlightened way with others. If you don’t immediately get a specific example, invite a knowing of a dysfunctional pattern that you tend to repeat in many kinds of relationships.

THIRD, invite a knowing of the roots of your disconnection from the divine, your own divine power, and the wise voice of your inner wisdom. Consider asking: “What’s an example of an earlier lifetime when I learned that I was separate from the divine – taught to fear and to expect punishment for wrongdoing?”

What’s most important about these preparations is your presence and intent as you explore and ask the questions. It’s not necessary to receive answers in a tangible way. The very process of inquiry – asking specific questions like those above – sets in motion a response. Trust this.

Know that a powerful alchemy can occur over this next week, helping you to identify what’s out of balance in your relationships. Pay attention to seemingly random insights that come to you as you are focusing on something else. You may receive a word, for example, like distrust or boundaries.

In some cases you may intuit that a dysfunctional relationship issue with your partner has ancestral roots, and is something within your DNA akashic records to be cleared. Having this information is a key step forward.

Remember that spirit is always with you, lovingly and gently nudging you to address blocks in the way of your enlightenment.

New Moon in Libra Horoscopes: You Are Not Alone

Read your sign’s New Moon in Libra Horoscope now


Between the onslaught of natural and man-made disasters occurring at what feels like an alarmingly intensifying rate, and the horror of ongoing violence and suffering of so many of our fellow humans, it is understandable to feel overwhelmed, hopeless, and a little lost. You might even be personally affected or know someone affected by one of these tragic events, and Astrology may seem trivial or of little use right now. Although Astrology can’t turn back time, it can be an amazing tool for cultivating awareness and empowering positive change.

The New Moon in gracious Libra on October 19, 2017, plants seeds of peace and harmony. However, it is up to you to create an inner sanctuary that can withstand the elements of surprise and chaos while Uranus the Awakener opposes the willful Sun. Your desire to relate to others is intense, and one way you can do this is by reaching out to help those in need. Kindness is an underrated commodity, and is known to be extremely contagious.

The loss of rock icon Tom Petty earlier this month touched many hearts deeply; his songwriting magic, deep appreciation for music, and natural knack for collaboration are cosmic gifts evident in his “Super Libra” chart (Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Neptune all in Libra in his 7th House of Others). Although many of his most popular songs are defiant in tone, he was masterful at telling love stories and painting pictures with his music. These bittersweet revelations echoed in resonance to millions, allowing listeners to feel emotionally connected to his songs, and somehow, Tom knew their hearts too. This give-and-take is a classic Libra symbiotic approach to love.

This people-pleasing New Moon reminds you that relationships are reflections. The high-frequency notes of Libra call on you to build bridges, not walls. Equality and justice are not lofty ideals, but important priorities that demand discussion. Embrace the universal languages of music and art as both personal expression and as means to connect with others. Intentional acts of kindness are needed more than ever. Celebrate the beauty in everything and everyone, and your inner beauty will shine like a diamond in the light.

Saving grace

The diplomatic Libra Moon keeps the tone conversational vs. confrontational, but with Messenger Mercury and Giant Jupiter swimming in the subjective seas of Scorpio you might be treading in deep water before you know it. Vulnerability is the only boat that can successfully carry you through this transformative journey, as denial or delusion will leave you dog-paddling in circles. Trust that others can respect your feelings in the same fashion as you respect theirs. A sincere willingness to see things from another point of view is the key to establishing an emotional connection. Be the friend you wish to have and watch how others respond in return.

Free falling

Finding your balance in such an unstable world is a daily practice. Shocking Uranus and surreal Neptune take turns rattling this accommodating Libra New Moon’s cage until you feel the urge to either fight or take flight. Try not to give in to either impulse, and engage in meaningful dialogue, instead. Communicating in a manner where you do more listening than talking is the first step to building bridges. Walking around in someone else’s shoes widens your perspective and deepens your empathy. Healthy relationships make for a happier personal existence.

Sadly, the cosmos offers no promise of peace, and you can’t expect anyone else to provide it either. Meditation, music, and the arts offer a variety of remedies for calming your spirit. Peace is not a destination or an ideal state of being, it is a spiritual path you commit to as an act of self-love and preservation.

________________________________________

Set intentions during this New Moon with these helpful tools:

Tarot Card for this New Moon:

Two of Swords

Swords represent the Air signs (also note the clouds), and the Two indicates Libra’s need for relationships and reflection. The blindfold signifies the unseen, and the element of surprise is palatable with the electric Moon-Uranus opposition in the picture at this New Moon.

Crystals for this New Moon:

Celestite for peace & serenity
Hematite for grounding

Rhodochrosite for self-love and compassion

You may want to use one or more of the crystals listed above for your ritual work, meditation practice, or just as a talisman for your desk, under your pillow, or in your pocket.

Mixing metaphysical modalities opens the door to your intuition and deepens your connection to the cosmic energies at play. There are countless ways to blend divination methods so consider this as just one suggestion. The method that works best for you will be your own creation.

_______________________________________

A New Moon gives you the chance to clear your slate and state your intentions. Change is inevitable during this unconventional Libra New Moon, so be proactive and create transformation on your own. Plant your seed we’ve listed below, nurture it carefully over the next two weeks, and see what grows.

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

Your restless spirit is itching to cut ties and hit the road if a current relationship isn’t performing up to your expectations. The accommodating Libra New Moon graces your 7th House of Relationships, but rebellious Uranus is lurking in the background, preparing to strike. Fleeing for the promise of a greener pasture is the course of least resistance for you independent Rams, but if your heart is already invested in someone, your escape may be detrimental to your long-term happiness. Initiate a dialogue in which feelings can be freely discussed in a kind and respectful manner. Dare to do things differently; stick around and talk it out. Your seed to plant: Harmonious relationships

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

An associate or long-term ally might drop a bombshell, or perhaps you are the one with a surprising revelation, but in either case keep your ears and eyes wide open. The friendly Libra New Moon shadows your 6th House of Routine, inspiring you to choose cooperation over competition when given the chance. Authenticity counts when it comes to communication with co-workers and those you bump into on a regular basis. Move past the small talk and find out what makes others tick. Sharing your heart enables you to establish common ground. Your seed to plant: Productive collaborations

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

Your inner artist can’t wait any longer — your thoughts are spinning mysteries and your dreams are invading your work. The graceful Libra New Moon dances in your 5th House of Romance, and you wish everyone could see the world through your colorful lens. You might be tempted to break free from a group project if you tire of the slow pace, thinking you will shock others with your creative masterpiece. But the real surprise occurs if you change your perspective from one of entitlement to one of service. The collective buzz of minds and hearts working for the same cause generates an electrical magic that’s impossible to replicate alone. Your seed to plant: Artistic creations

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

Surprising news at work or out in the community can set your nerves on edge, and you wish you could head for the safe harbor of home before anything else happens. Change doesn’t come easily for you Crabs, and you prefer a warning before someone rocks your world during this otherwise delightful Libra New Moon’s visit to your 4th House of Roots. The good news is you have a cozy comfort zone at home where you can release your worries and rest your weary heart. But you can’t escape reality now; your empathy skills are needed to help channel the change in a positive direction. However, you must honor your personal sanctuary and leave your stress at the door. Serenity starts from within. Your seed to plant: Inner tranquility

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your generosity blossoms in the company of like-minded friends who not only support your ideas, but add their own unique contributions to the party. The Libra New Moon shakes up your 3rd House of Communication, emphasizing the need for everyone to be on the same page. You may want to pack your suitcase as an unexpected opportunity to broaden your horizons either domestically or internationally is calling your heart. Casual connections are a catalyst for change, and building stronger relationship bonds paves the way for further cooperation and collaboration down the road. Learning keeps you young. Your seed to plant: Fruits of knowledge

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You would rather reorganize your closets — or anyone else’s — than engage in an intense conversation with someone who is challenging your values. However, the bridge-building Libra New Moon darkens the door of your 2nd House of Self-Esteem, and you may have no choice in the matter if you want to restore peace in your world. Chaos and confusion are likely when it comes to financial business or shared resources, so it is prudent to act proactively by discussing all the details with everyone involved. Don’t let an unpleasant surprise ruin an otherwise harmoniously beneficial arrangement. Communication solves problems before they happen. Your seed to plant: Abundance and prosperity

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Happy Birthday, Libra! You are a true champion of justice and beauty, and the world needs your superhero powers now more than ever. This Libra New Moon sets off fireworks in your 1st House of Self, empowering you to polish your image and redefine your priorities. Use your creative flair for personal transformation and take your game to the next level. Start fresh by setting ambitious goals and communicating your needs to your support network. People are so used to you accommodating them that you might have to spell it out before they realize what you want. Your kindness is sweeter than the icing on your cake. Your seed to plant: Self-love

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You’re walking around in a dream state, floating through your regular responsibilities and ghosting on social obligations when you can get away with it. Escaping the mundane is the only item on your agenda while the romantic Libra New Moon plays its song in your 12th House of Mystery. Tapping into your intuition is almost as natural as breathing now, if you can relinquish your attachment to the familiar routine and let yourself float out into nothing. Secrets are waiting to be discovered if you are willing to dive deep enough to find them. Meditation, metaphysics, and music are quick access points to the divine. Buried treasure is yours for the taking. Your seed to plant: Spiritual explorations

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Your feelings intensify with no place to go, and your need to strike out on your own may be so fierce that you bolt without considering the consequences. Following a whim jeopardizes your stability in your social network, but sometimes listening to your heart means taking the unmarked path. The Libra New Moon’s presence in your 11th House of Hopes and Dreams asks you to rethink your solo act for the benefit the group. Find a way to weave your unique thread into the larger quilt and you can have the best of both worlds. The truth is, what you create together is much better than anything you could make on your own. Your seed to plant: Faith in the future

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You like to think you’ve mastered the work/home balancing act, but this ambiguous Libra New Moon’s emphasis on your 10th House of Career challenges your expertise at compartmentalizing. Disruptions on the home front spill over into your professional life and denial is not a viable option. Thankfully, proactive communication with your boss and co-workers establishes an atmosphere of cooperation and trust. Accessing a place of inner serenity allows you to regain control of the situation, and earns the appreciation of all those involved. Some foundations need to crumble before stronger ones can be built. Your seed to plant: Recognition and reward

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Running away rarely solves anything, but that might not stop you from jumping on a plane and testing that theory. The lovely Libra New Moon is knocking at your 9th House of Travel and the horizon is tugging at your wanderlust. Change is in the air, but it is unknown if the lightning will strike you before you have a chance to strike first. Be bold and claim what is rightfully yours; communicating your plans leaves the least collateral damage in your wake. A personal revolution comes at a cost, but stretching your wings is the only way you can learn how to fly. Your seed to plant: Amazing adventures

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You enjoy swimming with other like-spirited Fish, but you may find yourself questioning the dynamics of a close partnership if you sense an inequity of power or an unwillingness to share resources. This pleasure-seeking Libra New Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy is a harbinger of changes to come in your relationship world. Shine the light of self-awareness as you accept the invitation to dance with your shadow. Untangling your personal desires from someone else’s needs is complicated but necessary as you sort out your goals from your dreams. In a sudden flash, your priorities become crystal clear if you are willing to bypass your fears and follow your heart. Your seed to plant: Personal transformation

Moon Diary: Electric Moon New Moon in Libra, 26 degrees, 19th October, 2017

by Jane Lyle

From The Astrology Room

 

Snap and crackle – this Libran new Moon flicks a switch and offers an electrifying moment of illumination for the month ahead.

This could be a very positive, exciting time to get unusual ideas across to a wider audience, or to try something brand new and a little unconventional. The Moon’s tight stand-off with revolutionary Uranus in Aries emphasises restlessness and rebellion, and is likely to symbolise upheavals in many relationships, alliances, and even governments.

With Libra and Aries, there’s the me-and-you, us-and-them theme that’s part of the current zeitgeist and the Jupiter-Uranus stand-off of 2017. With the Moon ruling the masses (that’s all of us), crowds and groups will be extremely eager to express their feelings in this buzzy atmosphere.

On a personal level, there could be sudden attractions or sudden break-ups and disagreements. But when you look more closely, you’ll realise that this pattern has been building up for quite a while – you may have met the ‘sudden’ attraction briefly some time ago, or been feeling unfulfilled and restricted by a relationship, friendship, or professional partnership.

Time, then, for a new Moon shake up and a sprinkling of surprises. A few lightning bolts may shock us, jolting us into awareness. Uranus often stirs up electrical storms – these can manifest quite literally sometimes. Watch the skies!

Sensible Saturn in fiery Sagittarius makes a helpful aspect with the Moon and Uranus. It may help to keep things from getting out of hand – at least, if we care to listen to wise advice, or proceed with some caution. The partnership between Saturn and Uranus has been a 2017 theme – it means that we can blend what’s established with what’s innovative in creative, imaginative ways. However, aspects like this require the patience and maturity to bring things down to earth, and Saturn rewards hard work – the vivid, disruptive ideas of Uranus are not enough on their own.

If this new Moon activates your personal horoscope do be open to fresh thoughts, quirky ideas, and unusual friendships that may come your way. They could lead on to some fascinating and successful outcomes.

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You think you’re lucky to have all the the positives in your life, but you deserve every single one of them. Try not to let new faces intimidate you. You have earnt your place in life and the respect that comes with it.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Life isn’t about finding yourself Taurus, it’s about creating yourself. Being fair to family and admitting the truth rather than half-truths, can help you feel like a better version of yourself.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
The relationship sector of your chart brings out the need in you to ask others what they want long term. This could be difficult for those of you in new relationships. Go easy on new situations or you could scare them off.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You can afford to believe that something wonderful is about to happen. You have worked so hard this year to learn from and to move on from the past. Phone calls and e mails bring an offer for a better future your way.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You won’t be able to stop yourself from saying what you think or how you feel, which should make today one of your most interesting for some time. Expect those you care for to convince you of what they want.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
That tired feeling begins to disappear and it is replaced by one of excitement. You know that memorable times are ahead and you’re ready to trust in your dreams.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Try to listen when others speak. It will help you to gain the respect which I know is so important to a sign such as you. You don’t have to put up with that person’s rude behaviour.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Venus the planet of love brings out your flirtatious side and you could find yourself being overly friendly just out of a sense of mischief. Work is where your energy is best directed as you can tie up something you lost control of last month.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Stop worrying so much about how things look to others and instead think about how they feel to you. Your sense of justice is brought to the fore by a lie you know has been told. Use Mercury to act as peacemaker.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
The first step binds on to the second and so on you go my friend. Try to be careful telling new faces about your past. It doesn’t hurt to leave a little to the imagination my friend.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
You open your eyes to what is really going on around you. No longer do you feel the need to turn a blind eye. You want all cards on the table. A split in your circle brings surprise.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take Pisces. That is why it is important that you listen to your heart and try to communicate. Today could be your last chance to lay your heart on the line.

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
All great achievements require time. You have been trying to rush something that is better left to time to solve. Keeping your eye on what you want the final result to be can help you stay on the path to success.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Saturn makes your life a more interesting place to be. You’re able to work out with ease who is good for your life and who has been leading you up a very windy path. From today you realise who you no longer want in your life.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
You still have a lot of work to do to get to where you want to be. Rather than rush your journey, why not try to stop and take in the view. There are some interesting paths to the side you have not noticed.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
It’s been hard for you to work out what your close ones want lately. You’ve both needed time to think with the dramatic aspects affecting us all. You’re about to come to a series of decisions which make your life a better place to be.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
People from your past are on your mind more than usual. You may even be thinking of getting in contact with someone you haven’t seen in a long time. Think about where this could lead before you do.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Mars makes it hard for you to tell the truth. Honesty seems boring to you right now, but it’s only by sticking the truth that you will find out if you and a certain person can really work.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
You’ve got to start somewhere and you want to start over. Luckily for you the stars hand you the gift of charm. It will be easy for you to get others to give you what you want.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Jealousy rears its head and is going to make it hard for you to see reason. Knowing how far is too far to go with your behaviour can make all the difference between a relationship continuing or ending.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
That unsettled feeling which made for such a difficult start to the month, slowly but surely starts to disappear. You begin to realise that you haven’t exactly been helping yourself. You can and you will though, now that Mars is on your side.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Your energy levels were low, but now they slowly and surely start to improve. Foreign countries, contacts and names all make for a more exciting end to the year than the beginning of it.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
More than one new attraction could be making life difficult for many of your sign. You’re ready to explore life and to follow your heart. Don’t repeat gossip you hear. It’s more sensitive than you’ll first realise.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
You’ve said and done some things you now regret. You think you can’t move on from this, but you can and will. In fact my friend, events which take place today give you more than one opportunity to do so.

Daily Tarot Card for the Day

The Lovers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: choice, decision, love, communication, inspiration (ideas from above)!

Astrological Correspondence: Gemini

The Lovers card is representative not only of crucial life choices, but also of lovers, couples, and other partnerships, like business partners, siblings, and friends. The angel between a woman and a man, depicted on this card, symbolizes the struggle of deciding to follow one’s heart versus one’s temptation or obligation. The Lovers card symbolizes the choices that must be made to progress toward higher self-awareness; choices also reflect emotional values, indecisiveness, hesitation, and our fears about making wrong choices. This applies not only to love relationships – it is applicable to any relationship in which people are drawn together, even a casual one. It’s the card of uncertainty!

Daily Love Tarot for the Day

The Emperor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

Your Daily Erotic Tarot

The Judgement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

THE ANCIENT ART

Once upon a time, a long time ago, there were people who believed in laughter, joy and love. They believed in many deities, but the most important to them was their Great Mother Goddess. They believed in and lived with the powers of Nature. They reveled in the Wind, the Rain, the Snow and the Sunlight. They marveled at and revered the changing of the seasons and saw therein great excitement and wisdom to be gained. They knew that if they tended, cared for and loved the Earth, in return She would provide for, care for and love them. They saw that all around them the world was filled with Life, much as their own but in many different and wonderful forms. They felt the life of the flowers, plants and trees and respected them for that life essence. They looked about and observed all the many types of animals and saw that they were kindred to them and loved them. They felt and observed the great Love of the Goddess all about them and knew kinship with the Moon. They were practitioners of The Old Religion, worshipers of The Great Mother.

Witch! The very word instantly invokes visions for each of us, visions which vary greatly from individual to individual. Many of these visions, however, are quite false, brought about by many centuries of severe persecutions, misrepresentations, prejudice and, in recent years, lack of knowledge. Witchcraft! What is it really?

Witchcraft is the oldest, most irrepressible religion in the world because it stimulates the intellect, promotes a simple, practical way of life and, most
importantly, is emotionally satisfying. Its roots lie in the ancient Matriarchal systems of Goddess worship. A religion of Nature in which the primary deity is female (The Essence of Femininity, The Earth Mother, The Great Mother, etc.).

It was easy for the Wise Ones to look at the world around them and see the great importance of Feminine Principle. The female was, indeed, the one who bore the young, perhaps the most magickal of all events to ancient man. Then, she played by far the most important role in rearing the young, being totally responsible for feeding, for without her milk there was no life past birth. She was responsible for the teaching and early care of the young. In all youths the greatest comfort and nurturing love were connected with the mother. These revelations and experiences could hardly lead to any other choice than the total reverence and deification of the female.

Although The Great Mother is the most important deity, Witches do, generally, recognize many Goddesses and/or Gods and are, therefore, polytheistic. The tenets of Witchcraft are few but all-encompassing, for with three simple Universal Observations all of life can be explained and understood:

1) Reincarnation – Mortality
2) Cause & Effect – Magick
3) Retribution – Morality

Reincarnation enlightens the Witch to the fact that, as we come to this material world over and over in a series of learning periods, or lifetimes, we will eventually have to experience all things, be all things, understand all things. This creates a great tolerance for other viewpoints in the Witch.

Cause & Effect, and an understanding of it, allows the Witch to see what makes the world work and how to live most efficiently. It gives them a great advantage in that it explains the working of Magick.

Retribution shows the Witch, in graphic terms, that every thought one might have, every action one may take, is returned in like kind. This realization forms the basis of the Moral Code of the Witch.

The Patriarchal Societies which evolved in later times had no tolerance for the Goddess religions and systematically set out to destroy the material vestiges, kill or convert the adherents and wipe out all knowledge of them. They destroyed the temples and other places of worship, desecrated the sacred groves and magickal places, attempted to pervert the old deities, mutilated and totally suppressed sacred art, tore down libraries and burned books, tortured and killed the practitioners of the Old Religions, demeaned, persecuted and oppressed women in general and passed strictly enforced laws which made theirs the State Religion and forbade all other viewpoints.

Despite the centuries of insidious persecution, deliberate destruction and perversions at the hands of the Christian Conspirators, Witchcraft has survived.

The Witches Digest for Tuesday, October 17th (Part 3, Horoscopes & Daily Divination)

The Witches Digest for Tuesday, October 17th

(Part 3, Horoscopes & Daily Divination)

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast: October 15 – 21, 2017

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE*There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.  

Weekly Forecast: October 15 – 21, 2017

10/15 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~oppose~ Uranus (radical shift): 

This energy tends to make your mind work in over-drive. Not that you think too much, but rather you may tend to think, speak and process information faster than usual. However, when you are moving that fast, sometimes you can overlook something vital. The negative expression of this energy tends to make you feel scattered and disorganized, but the positive side of it is making those brilliant connections that are normally just out of reach. Your perception and intuition are picking up so much in such a short period of time that you will want to review the details later to ensure you didn’t overlook something crucial to your development. You may be impatient with same-old/same-old routine but check in with your body to make sure it is not just your monkey mind playing tricks on you. It is a good time to breathe and be flexible because if you are impatient with this energy, you are more likely to make mistakes. Anytime Uranus is involved, radical shifts and ah-ha moments are totally possible on an internal level, however, on an external level you may tend to blurt things our without proper forethought. Be sure to engage your Heart and some kind of filter, especially when communicating with others this week.

10/16 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization & structure):

This energy is good for getting serious and organized because the Sun also brings some much-needed clarity. With Saturn involved, practical actions based on responsible assessments will be rewarded, whereas, blowing things off or leaving loose ends will cost you (usually fairly immediately, the instant karma way). Even if this should happen to you, it is not personal, but Saturn’s way of showing you (immediately) where your current limitations are. That’s good info to have when making choices & decisions. This activation gives you access to self-discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a good time to focus on your professional goals if possible, and start making a solid, feasible plan for the future. If you need to, seek the advice of a trusted wise elder (anyone with more knowledge/experience than you ; -)) And if you can’t actually DO something in the direction of your goals today, take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.

10/18 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (expansion & learning):

It is time to expand your thinking & develop more conscious awareness! This is a powerful energy assisting you on many levels. You will make connections easily & quickly that help you integrate newly acquired information or knowledge, making you appear psychic (or at least lucky) to others. At this time, you can connect with your Highest ideal and most broad outlook for your life, and you may feel that you are finally ready to live your Truth. You are so connected to your own ideal that you naturally give others permission to live their Truth as well, creating an atmosphere of tolerance that feeds all involved. The challenge with this energy is going too ‘broad’ and missing details that are vital to your success. You will also miss out on crucial information if you are too overconfident and/or self-righteous in any way. Remain humble, knowing that your way works for you, but it may not work for others (and vice versa). And it is ALL okay! If you remain centered in the Light and your own Heart, this energy gives you a little boost to whatever you are creating at this time.

Your Love Tarot Card of the Day

The Devil


Pulling the Devil card does not mean that bad things are about to happen. What it does mean is that you have stooped to a level of thinking that is all about your ego. You have to look closely at what is driving you to be this way. You are in a wonderful relationship with an individual who adores you. You do not want to ruin the bond that is evolving between the two of you. You need to do some self-reflection in order to figure out what is going on with you under the surface.

Your Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

Strength


Your sex life gains some serious momentum today with the appearance of the Strength card. You have tremendous inner strength when it comes to getting what you want, and that includes sexual conquests. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to try out some new moves, the Strength card urges you to act now! There may be some obstacles in your way, but you welcome any and all challenges. Anyone playing hard to get right now is like putty in your hands.

Earth Sky News for October 17: Watch for zodiacal light, or false dawn

This light can be noticeable and easy to see from latitudes relatively close to Earth’s equator, for example, like those in the southern U.S. Earthsky’s Deborah Byrd has seen it many times from the latitude of southern Texas, sometimes while driving a lonely highway far from city lights, in the hour or so before true dawn begins to light the sky. In that case, the zodiacal light can resemble the lights of a city or town just over the horizon. Meanwhile, skywatchers in the northern U.S. or Canada sometimes say, wistfully, that they’ve never seen it, although in recent years we’ve seen many photographs of the zodiacal light taken from those northerly latitudes.

You need a dark sky location to see the zodiacal light, someplace where city lights aren’t obscuring the natural lights in the sky. The zodiacal light is a pyramid-shaped glow in the east before dawn (or after twilight ends in the evening, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere now). It’s even “milkier” in appearance than the starlit trail of the summer Milky Way. It’s most visible before dawn at this time of year because, as seen from the Northern Hemisphere, the ecliptic – or path of the sun, moon and planets – stands nearly straight up with respect to the eastern horizon before dawn now. As seen from the Southern Hemisphere, the same is true of the western horizon after true darkness falls.

The zodiacal light can be seen for up to an hour or so before true dawn begins to break. Once again, look for it about 120 to 80 minutes before sunrise. Unlike true dawn, though, there’s no rosy color to the zodiacal light. The reddish skies at dawn and dusk are caused by Earth’s atmosphere, and the zodiacal light originates far outside our atmosphere. When you see the zodiacal light, you are looking edgewise into our own solar system. The zodiacal light is actually sunlight reflecting off dust particles that move in the same plane as Earth and the other planets orbiting our sun.

Bottom line: No matter where you are on Earth, your local autumn is the best time to see the zodiacal light before dawn. Spring is the best time to see it in the evening.

The Witches Digest for Monday, October 16th

(Part 3, Horoscopes & Divination)

When You’re Going Through Hell, Keep Going

How outer planet transits are shaking up your life


Outer planets Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are heavy hitters. These guys mean business, and when they transit a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) or angle in your chart by close degree, you can count on upsets in your world.

Right now, if you’re a Mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) then you’re the winner of a Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius transit. And if you’re a Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), you have the simultaneous transit of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn.

When I consult with my clients, or even look around the lives of my own family members, I see the fascinating difference that each type of outer planetary transit has in their world. The common theme is change through developmental tension, ultimately leading to personal growth. For each outer planet that transits something vital in your horoscope, it can feel like you’re going through the muck. I’m reminded of the famous Winston Churchill quote these days more than ever:

“When you’re going through hell, keep going.”

Easier said than done, right? And yet, we humans are a resilient bunch. We can take so much pressure from the outside world — and even from our own creation — and not only manage to survive, but thrive.

Even hell has an end

What resonates most about this quote as I apply it to astrological cycles is the reminder that even hell has an ending. Eventually, you’ll get out and come to the other side of pain. Eventually, you’ll see the light again. Yet the only way to ensure that is to keep going through the darkness.

While it’s true that every outer planetary transit to your horoscope has the commonality of morphing your world through a series of stressful circumstances, it’s important to note that each outer planet has a very different style, or modus operandi, with which he accomplishes this.

I thought it might be helpful to briefly clarify the differences so that when you or someone you know experiences a transit, you’ll have an idea of how the specific outer planet goes about achieving his mission.

What Saturn transits can teach

Saturn transits change through restrictive, limiting and sometimes overbearing circumstances. Saturn is also discipline, responsibility and authority. There are many different ways in which this can happen. Let’s say you’re having a Saturn transit to your 10th House of Career. This angle of the chart is concerned with your status in life, your professional goals and ambitions, and authority figures in your world.

When Saturn comes to this point in your horoscope (and we all get this transit about once every 29 years) it can either be an incredible career pinnacle, where you’re recognized as the authority in your industry, or it can be a time of drudgery, where, in the eyes of the boss, your best is never good enough.

The positive end of this transit uses the most illuminative qualities of Saturn to help you master your goals. The shadow is felt as roadblock after roadblock as you work ferociously to get your name out there. Either way Saturn crystalizes what he touches. That’s how he teaches.

Uranus can shake you awake

What if Uranus was transiting the same angle in your chart? Uranus is the great awakener of the zodiac. He presents radical change in our life in the most sudden, unexpected way. When transiting Uranus crosses your 10th house you can expect sudden opportunity in career or a sudden change in status (going from married to divorced or divorced to married are examples).

This is also a time of waking up to what liberates you in terms of your life direction and following it. Uranus teaches by destabilizing what it touches, forcing us to accommodate to these shifts and get in touch with our brilliance.

Neptune transits point to gain through loss

How about good old Neptune? Neptune dissolves what it touches. When you have a Neptune transit, something — or someone — tends to slip through your fingers. This can also be a time of tremendous idealism because of the extraordinary spiritual component of Neptune.

A transit of Neptune to your 10th house can result in a major ego loss professionally or personally. There might be a scandal involving you that obliterates your reputation if you have been going down an unsavory path. Alternatively, this might be a time you decide to follow your imaginative career goals and pursue that opportunity in music, film, photography or the healing arts.

What will disappear during this transit is your attachment to the status in life you held before Neptune arrived. Neptune transits teach us by softening us up enough to allow illumination in.

Surrendering to planet Pluto

And then there’s Pluto. This planet, more than any other, likes it in hell. He is, after all, the God of the underworld. When you’re having a Pluto transit you know it because the pain you endure can be brutal. Pluto teaches through elimination. He kills off what you no longer need — what is actually impeding you from soul growth.

The more you fight Pluto on this, the harder your transit will be. Do yourself a favor and when Pluto comes calling, prepare to surrender. You’re only job during a Pluto transit is to accept the transformation. Even if it hurts. Especially when it hurts.
Pluto is the planet of power, and if he happens to transit your 10th house you can either arrive at an incredible position of power (sometimes notoriety) professionally, or you can fall from a position of power if you’ve been abusing your clout.

Either way, Pluto teaches you that with great power comes great responsibility and if you’re not using it for the greater good, when he transits your 10th house he’s going to rip it right away.

So, are you going through hell right now? Join the club. My advice? Keep it moving.

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for October 16th

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

With Jupiter now in intense Scorpio for the next twelve months or so, secrets will come out, deeper feelings will be revealed and there will be eyebrows raised and passions aroused.

But for this week, make the most of the sun’s last fling in Libra to make it clear that you require and need a little lightness and frivolity in your life too.

 

ARIES

If you’re not in a position of equality with someone, then you’ll do you’re utmost to get there. You radiate well-being, and intuitively know how to deal with anything from supporting your partner, to the right moment to create romance in your world. Indulge a little in your own power-trip this week, it’s you’re right.

 

TAURUS

It’s easy to get stuck in some kind of time warp about love and feelings. But to experience being loved, you must give out, not hold back. You must engage not defend, begin not end, take each cycle of giving and receiving as itself. And if attached, this week, the planets will take you to new frontiers and a deeper commitment.

 

GEMINI

Restless thoughts occur. And if you’ve promised the earth to someone special recently, perhaps it would be wise to think whether you can live up to those vows? I’m not saying you’re incapable of commitment, but taking the open road to freedom may be more tempting than domestic routine right now.

 

CANCER

This week navigate your life with vision and self-awareness, and whether you’ve decided to become an enterprising dragon or simply remain a loyal partner who honours their career, the time has come to love the one you’re with, yes, but love yourself too.

 

LEO

Bravely remind your partner that you have a voice, an opinion and personal goals. And if they say, ‘ I think you ‘ought’ to do this or that, then perhaps it would be worth reminding them that shoulds and oughts aren’t any longer in your vocabulary. By the end of the week, you discover emotional equilibrium again.

 

VIRGO

You’ve been going about your daily business of sharing and caring. If single, you’ve been happy being independent, favouring no one friend more than the other. But you have forgotten one person in all this, and that’s you. Remembering yourself is the best souvenir you could take home right now.

 

LIBRA

With the sun generating a desire in you to get on with life, it’s hardly surprising you’re going to be in your element. But how to live the dream when you’re surrounded by life’s daily worries?  ‘Oh, just take each day as it comes,’ says a friend. But not you, you want romantic action, so go out and get it now.

 

SCORPIO

It’s a hit and miss, on and off kind of week. But by the end of it, you remember that romantic dreams and mature relationships aren’t mutually exclusive. Time to try out passion with the one you love.  And if single? You learn that being passionate about yourself means someone new will love you too.

 

SAGITTARIUS

This week, observe how you react to your partner or admirers in both positive and negative ways. What are your love goals? What price giving up on your personal quest for someone else’s? This week is a great time for rekindling the flames of romance. But careful, don’t get too carried away by your fun-loving nature.

 

CAPRICORN

Why do you feel so passionate about someone that you can’t even be bothered to tidy your home? Or, maybe you’re horrified by your partner’s future plans when you thought that wanted to live the dream?  So, how to deal with this? Quite honestly, there’s nothing more you can do than indulge in you. Pamper yourself, get sensual and go with the flo

 

AQUARIUS

There’s a sense of a bright, brilliant future ahead. So make it a week for romantic adventure if single, and fulfilling all those travel plans if attached.  Worries about commitment or future instability are temporarily shelved, and you can sit back and enjoy the fun-side of life. Go and enjoy.

 

PISCES

Time to accept that you must honestly express your own needs, and also what you want for the future. With Neptune’s positive influence, now’s the time to make magic. So wave your romantic wand, and hey presto, start to live out those love visions, instead of just thinking about them.

Your Weekly Horoscopes for October 16th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

If you can’t say anything good about anyone this week, then don’t say anything at all. I know you sometimes take things too far but that can be good as well as bad. Use this week to push your boundaries in a positive way. You can start by pushing for what you really want in your career, instead of just making do.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Don’t be angry about the things which haven’t worked out in your life this year. Work on and focus on what has and can succeed. You may not realise it but the very person you have been trying to convince to be on your side has already switched to your allegiance. You were talking so much you just didn’t see.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Jealousy rears its head for your sign and you may find yourself accusing your close ones of things they have not done. Know how far is too far to go when throwing around accusations. If you’re not careful you could undo all of the good work this month has seen you do so far. A new work connection comes via a social contact you make at the weekend.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Financial matters come to a head and you have to make some important decisions about what is a priority in your life. Don’t take advice from others. Try to find the right answers by yourself, instead of listening to the guidance that those who are not in the loop may offer to you. Doing your sums before and not after Friday can make something which was not possible a reality.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is the gift of attention. You may not realise it, but you have been neglecting the very faces you care about. Try to make a mental note of what your priorities should be. The written word is worth getting a second opinion on. Fellow Leos provide fun times if you’re willing to let out your softer side.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

Don’t be afraid of growing slowly Virgo. The only thing you should be afraid of is standing still. Your element of earth needs to take things slowly to build the base which you crave for longevity. Old talents come in handy as do old contacts. Don’t be afraid to contact those you used to have a business or even personal connection with.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Big news and huge celebrations are evident in your stars. You have come so far my friend. I hope you are as proud of your progress as I am. Trips you make in the name of family pays dividends. You finally start to see with ease what and who needs to be a priority. Game playing in love this weekend is not an option.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Try not to tell tales on those you work with as it will only come back on you if you do. Working hard this week is the key to you getting through what I see was a difficult beginning to the month. Don’t be afraid to ask if you do not know all the answers. It’s what will gain you the respect I know you seek.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Friendship isn’t a big thing, it’s a million little things. You find this out over the course of the next few days and it actually leads to you feeling like a more contented person. Cancelled travel plans are for a very valid reason so try not to be upset, but work on making better plans in their place.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice. Remember this Capricorn, especially where travel or business matters are concerned. Something you were about to give up on is given a boost by someone who was once on the opposing side. Going over figures more than once can help make sure you don’t run into silly mistakes

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Please try not to rush things in your life this week Aquarius. This is a time when attention to detail will mean everything. Animals seem to link to an introduction which makes you smile. Go the extra mile for family you have not seen for a while. They will not forget the effort you make for them at this time.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

What starts off as a friendship could lead to so much more by the time this week is over. You are no longer playing games in life but you are acting and speaking from the heart. This new attitude really suits you Pisces and should be responsible for the many positive changes this month will bring. Selling and buying also go well for you this week. Don’t be afraid to hold out for the real deal.

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, October 16th

Aries

Aries
Aries

The first half of the day is strong for improvements to relationships or pairing up to accomplish something productive, dear Aries. You’re likely to feel good or accomplished regarding a commitment to someone or a project. Positive gestures and actions taken now have a real impact on your future. It’s a good time to take on tasks that you might put off on another day as you have a strong sense of responsibility now. As the day advances, there can be some restlessness if you feel hemmed in. Seek out ways to improve your projects and methods and avoid strict schedules if possible, as you need breathing room to feel inspired. It’s not the best time for work or routine matters to run smoothly, but you’re certainly ready to put in the effort.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Work or health matters stand to gain or improve in the first half of the day, Taurus. Stable, steady energy is with you for getting important things done, and you can find yourself pleasantly absorbed in whatever you’re doing now. It feels good to commit to something now. You might draw upon the talents or resources of someone else to accomplish something significant. Work and health benefits from long-term strategy rather than quick fixes and this becomes obvious to you now. Draw up plans for improving your daily routines, and feel better for it! Feeling on top of the little things in your life can do great things for your confidence and outlook. The second half of the day is a little more restless. It may be that friends and lovers aren’t mixing well or that fears of having the rug pulled out from under you are interfering with the enjoyment of the moment. Try not to allow fear of change or surprise get in the way of your good mood.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

You are in a playful cycle these days, dear Gemini, as you seek out improved ways to express and enjoy yourself. However, in the first half of the day, you want to make tangible progress and make things work. If you stand to gain from it, you’re happy to settle into a routine or work hard towards a goal now. At the moment, you want to take care of matters that secure you in the long term rather than pursue instant gratification. You are happy to commit yourself to a task or even a person for some of you. The second half of the day can find you a little restless as your desire for comfort and familiarity is at odds with a need to connect or experiment. Uncertainty or unreliability in your social life may leave you feeling not as grounded or secure as you’d like. Even so, you’re likely to sense a coming together or mutual understanding is in the works with someone important to you.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

You’re in a great position to work on or from home in the first half of the day, dear Cancer, as the Sun in your home and family sector connects well with responsible Saturn in your sector of work and routine. It can be a good time for working at improving home life, family, or work, whether this entails working harder at finding peace with those closest to you, or making physical, tangible improvements to your environment. You take pride in the functionality of these areas of life right now. It’s a fine time to attend to practical details, rearrange, organize, and sort things out. The goal should be long-term satisfaction rather than quick fixes now. Later today, there can be a tendency for uncertainty about your long-term goals or general direction to interfere with your current projects and state of mind. However, in the coming days, good energy is with you for seeing the bigger picture and reaching some satisfying conclusions.

Leo

Leo
Leo

Good energy for practical matters continues in the first half of today, Leo. A positive conversation or helpful news might figure strongly now. This is a good time for improving a relationship with sincere communications or simply being there for someone. You’re giving good advice or making a verbal commitment. This can be a good time for making clarifications or definitions in a relationship. Long-term goals are in focus, and you enjoy putting effort towards attaining them now. Doing the responsible thing feels good today. Focus on organizing, sorting, strengthening, and building something in your life now. Later today, there can be tension as part of you needs to unwind, relax, or focus on building something you already have, while another part is tempted to branch out and see what else is out there for you. Both needs are valid, but staying in a state of indecision isn’t your favorite place to be.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Good practical energy continues in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, and activities that remind you of the simple pleasures in life or that keep you grounded are favored. Moderate, measured actions make sense today. This is a time for finding ways to strengthen or stabilize your life in key ways, particularly when it comes to your valuables which may need some maintenance, your finances, or your home. This can also be a good time for investing in things that improve your feeling of security. It can be satisfying to be responsible today! The Moon in your sign all day can pull up emotional needs that want to grab your attention. The second half of the day may play into the impulsivity of this transit, which is best avoided now, however.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

In the first half of the day, efforts to strengthen or stabilize key areas of your life continue to be favored, dear Libra. This is a time for good advice, practical news, and mature conversations. It’s also a good time for studies, learning beneficial and handy things, and enjoying small accomplishments that nudge you closer to your goals. Later today, you may not feel ready or up to the task related to what someone proposes. Sometimes inaction is just as frustrating as adverse action, and this may cause some problems now. Even so, this is a time for respecting your boundaries and getting in touch with what you want before pushing forward, so give yourself emotional space and time.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

There continues to be excellent common sense with you today, dear Scorpio, although as the day advances, restlessness can be a problem. This morning, getting time to yourself can be particularly helpful and grounding as you get in better touch with your needs. You prefer to work on worthwhile pursuits today as you’re looking for solid results. You’ll do particularly well pouring your energies into business or practical endeavors that will improve and strengthen you. You’re also in a good position to resolve a long-term problem from your past or to tie up loose ends. Later today, it can be difficult to fully relax and enjoy friendships or personal interests with some uncertainty about work or health on your brain.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Continuing until midday, you are likely to see the value of slowing down and pacing yourself, dear Sagittarius. A Sun-Saturn connection favors efforts to stabilize, strengthen, commit, build, and maintain. For you, this is particularly the case with long-term projects, business income, friendships, group connections, and personal plans or health programs. Friends or groups can be supportive, and the practical or productive side of your relationships is in focus. This is a good time for gaining clout or respect with associates and networks or friends. As the day advances, energy shifts and there can be some mismatch between your desire to advance your goals and your need for entertainment. Or, for some of you, uncertainties in your personal life interfere with your concentration temporarily.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

We continue to value realism and practicality in the first half of today, dear Capricorn, and this is right up your alley! It’s a good time to make decisions and to take steps towards meeting your goals or strengthening your position. Business endeavors are especially favored, and work that you did in the past or behind the scenes can come in handy now. This is a time for applying your inner wisdom and experience to your work and feeling particularly proud of yourself and your accomplishments or gaining recognition. Later today, you’re in the mood to connect with others, but uncertainties or inconsistencies related to home or family life can distract you.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The practical and focused energy of last night continues today, dear Aquarius, and you’re in a great position to advance a personal interest, study, or goal now. In fact, you can feel quite good about putting in extra effort or filling a responsibility now. With increased foresight, you’re in the right place for making decisions and assessments. Your sense of what’s possible is strong and serves you well. Friendships are favorable and supportive, particularly the practical side of your connections. Teaming up can be successful and productive now. Later today, distractions can interfere with your desire to go deep in a particular subject or endeavor. However, you’re moving towards an excellent time for discovering ideas and news that gives you great insight or relief.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

There continues to be excellent common sense and foresight with you in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. You can feel pleasantly ambitious now, and you may thoroughly enjoy focusing on or attending to the details of your work or plans. For some, this is an excellent time for consulting or cooperating with a boss, parent, teacher, or manager. You can feel happily devoted to an endeavor, and you might readily pick up the support of others if needed. While there is a practical theme to the day, as it advances there can be some restlessness stirred with others if you’re not entirely on the same page with them. For some, topics of money or resources and respect can be hot ones. Try to observe and avoid quick reactions to problems now.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, October 17th

Aries

Aries

Aries

Mercury moves into your solar eighth house today and will influence this area of your chart until November 5th, dear Aries. During this transit, your attention turns to the hidden elements of life. You are picking up a lot more from your environment than usual, and seeing motives, subtleties, and power dynamics in your relationships and within yourself. There can be less impetus to share your ideas with others, with the possible exception of a trusted friend or partner with whom conversations can be frequent, during this cycle. You’re not as patient with conversation, information, or learning that feels frivolous or superficial. Today is influenced by a Mercury-Jupiter alignment that can open your mind to something you weren’t ready to see in the past or to a new opportunity. There can be excitement on mental levels. This is a fabulous time for investigation and research or invigorating communications. Talking about your feelings or confidential matters can be a sweet release, and you might learn something important in the process. For some, this can be a time for coming to a satisfying agreement or deal involving money or support.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Jupiter recently entered your partnership sector for a stay of over a year, and today, Mercury moves into the same sector, dear Taurus. It’s for a shorter stay (until November 5th), but it’s great for generating ideas and plans for partnering up. This Mercury transit brings a stronger tendency to seek out others for opinions and decisions. It’s also a time when you seem to attract talkative and interested people into your life. This is not about having others make decisions for you, but rather for benefiting from collaboration and learning about your own ideas and perspective through stimulating conversations. Over the coming year, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for arriving at satisfying agreements with others and benefiting from your close connections. Mercury is now moving towards a conjunction with Jupiter and today, conversations with others stand out as special. It’s a great time for talking through difficulties or putting conflicts behind you. You’re given the benefit of the doubt now. You’re in good shape for public relations, connecting with a counselor or lawyer, and meeting with clients.

Gemini

Gemini

Until November 5th, Mercury journeys through your sector of work, service, health, and routines, dear Gemini, making it a strong period for really sorting things out, organizing, and taking care of details. Mercury is particularly useful in this area of your chart! It may not be a time of notoriety or big decisions, but it’s a handy cycle for preparation, editing, learning new skills, and finding information that helps your health or work. If you can tame the tendency to fret, worry, and overthink things now, you can get a lot of things done. It’s a great time to shape up your daily routines. Today, Mercury is moving towards an alignment with Jupiter, and it can be an excellent time for opening up conversations with co-workers or people with whom you share your day, taking tests, going on interviews or consultations, seeing health care workers, and seeking out solutions to problems. This is a time for entertaining new approaches, methods, and ideas that can improve your life, starting little. You are feeling particularly hopeful about the future, and you should keep an eye open for opportunities to grow and expand your skills, a business, or project. For some of you, this is a great time to come together with a significant other and to see eye to eye with someone you care about.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Jupiter recently moved into your sector of self-expression, joy, and entertainment, dear Cancer, and will stay there for over a year, bringing excellent opportunities for enjoying more channels to express and enjoy yourself. Mercury moves into this sector today and will transit here until November 5th, and you’re inclined to give more thought to or plan out what this will mean for you. This is a great time for sharing games or ideas with others, particularly as you’ve been more withdrawn than usual lately. You might take a few more risks when it comes to expressing yourself, learning, and connecting. You’re likely to gain a receptive audience now, as well. Today, Mercury moves towards an alignment with Jupiter, and you feel lucky! Communications of all kinds are emphasized, but especially those involving creative contacts, children, and romantic interests. Grand ideas regarding these things could emerge now. If you’re a typical Cancer, people don’t always describe you as an open book, but today, they may very well! Hobbies are exciting, and new interests or opportunities to enjoy yourself can present themselves.

Leo

Leo
Leo

Until November 5th, Mercury’s transit of your solar fourth house turns your thoughts to family, home, and personal matters, dear Leo. You may be keeping a little more to yourself during this cycle, but talks with family or roommates are set to increase. With the rest of the world, you may not always find the right words, just for the time being, but this gives you more time to reflect. Family and home life can be big topics now. There can be a lot of mental activity at home, possibly with learning and work, and there can be interesting tidbits coming your way through the family. You’re likely to need some personal space to arrive at decisions, and you’re inclined to dig deep as you make them, considering your heart more than usual. However, today your ideas are big and ambitious as Mercury and Jupiter come together. This is a wonderful time for sharing happy moments with people you care about. You’ll want to speak truths, and you’re inclined to talk about issues clearly and openly. It’s an excellent day for coming up with long-range plans.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

This is a wonderful day for entertaining big possibilities, dear Virgo, as Mercury and Jupiter come together in your sector of communications. Do be careful that you don’t take on too much simply because you’re feeling very optimistic, as you’ll regret it later when energy levels aren’t quite so high, but do look for opportunities to learn new things or expand your mind now. You’re in particularly good shape for dreaming up new ideas for projects, and you can feel thoroughly enthused about what you’re learning or communicating now. This is a time for seeing a way out of a problem or for understanding a matter more clearly, which comes as a relief. Mercury begins its transit of your communications sector today, where it will continue to influence until November 5th. During this cycle, your curiosity is piqued and you find yourself branching out, experimenting with new ideas, making connections, and perhaps taking short trips and getting out and about more often. You’re also more inclined to reach out to others. Siblings or classmates may come into stronger focus in your life. You’re eager to write, study, speak, or share ideas.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

Mercury moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Libra, where it will stay until November 5th. You’ll pay more attention to your practical matters, money, resources, talents, and business affairs during this cycle, giving these things more thought. Mercury is impartial, objective, and reasonable, and you can benefit from taking an objective look at your resources now. You may want to plan or map out some strategies for improving your relationship with money, or you could be coming up with fabulous ideas about how to use your resources more efficiently. Mercury is about to join Jupiter in this sector of your solar chart, bringing especially helpful energy to your day for making plans and entertaining fabulous ideas. Details may not get much attention now, but today is more about dreaming up possibilities than weighing yourself down with practicalities. The details will follow, in time. For now, it’s about pumping yourself up and thinking in big terms, particularly when it comes to business, money, and security or comfort matters. You can be excited about exploring and building on your talents. Give big purchases more thought, however.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Mercury enters your sign today, Scorpio, and you’ll host this intelligent, reasonable, and curious planet until November 5th. While there continues to be a strong emphasis on the sign just behind yours and your privacy sector, Mercury now moves into the light in your solar chart and meets up with Jupiter. You are beginning to share a little more, by talking, writing, and connecting with others. This is nevertheless a rather independent time for thinking – you’re a self-starter making executive decisions during this cycle. You are more willing to share your thoughts. Today, you’re likely to receive nice feedback or encouraging news, and you can discover surprising information. You are communicating persuasively, and others see you as especially wise and fair. Opportunities to expand your mind, to learn something valuable, or to resolve a conflict may present themselves now. This is not the best time for self-discipline or detailed analysis, but it’s fabulous for big-picture thinking and broad ideas. Enjoy this creative vision today.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Mercury begins its transit of your privacy sector today, Sagittarius, where it will influence until November 5th. There is a move towards more insular but also more intuitive thinking during this almost three-week cycle. Decision-making may be solitary at times during this period, and it can take a little longer than usual as there can be so many variables to consider that it’s hard to come to definite conclusions! You think a lot about matters of the past, keep secrets, or simply spend more time in your own little world. With Mercury and your ruler, Jupiter, coming together in this sector, you’re likely to see a matter far more clearly today. Hindsight is valuable now, as it helps you move forward. This is also a time for drawing upon your wisdom and helping others. This can be an excellent time to open up about a private matter with someone you trust. You may have a significant meeting or event that occurs behind the scenes or a new understanding of an issue that has weighed heavily on your conscience. You see things in a more positive and forgiving light, and this is powerful.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

Until November 7th, you’ll have more contact with friends, groups, and associates, Capricorn, as Mercury now transits your solar eleventh house. You can pick up some very useful information through others during this period that subtly but effectively enhances your communications. It’s a good time for sharing your knowledge with others. This is also a time for entertaining non-traditional ideas and experimenting with new thoughts, interests, and studies or projects. You have more enthusiasm for your dreams and plans. Mercury’s alignment with Jupiter influences the day and points to potential opportunities to learn, share, and enjoy friendships. Mental connections and contacts are made. There can be wonderful conversations with friends and hopeful new projects on the horizon. It may not be the most sensitive of times, but it can be a useful influence for resolving conflicts. Thinking in big, broad terms can help you come up with innovative new ideas and plans. Details may not get attention today, but they can be sorted out later. Now is the time for stretching your mind and entertaining exciting possibilities.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Mercury moves into your solar tenth house of career and reputation, dear Aquarius, where it will transit until November 5th. You’re inclined to give more thought to your responsibilities, plans, work, and reputation during this cycle. You’re also more accountable for what you communicate and more aware of how you are coming across when you speak or write. Others may recognize you for your ideas or intelligence, and this is rewarding. This cycle is often useful for making business contacts and connections or for learning more about your field. You might find yourself in the position to make decisions about your life direction and career now. A Mercury-Jupiter alignment influences today and you’re hungry to learn new things and to come to conclusions and resolutions! This is a powerful time for optimism and hope or supportive, helpful news that excites you about your future. Look for openings and opportunities, particularly involving career, business, friendships, alliances, and reputation. Who you know may be important now, but perhaps even more vital is what you say or the ideas you come up with.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

Until November 5th, Mercury’s transit of your spirit sector eases self-expression and smooths out communications, dear Pisces. Your outlook is positive, and you’re inclined to seek solutions rather than harp on problems during this cycle. You’re looking for a little more on a mental level. Your thinking is less about the details and more about the bigger picture. The downside of this is that you may overlook essential points, but you’re also finding more pleasure in learning. Mercury’s meet-up with Jupiter influences the day and can have you feeling excited about a project, idea, or venture. There can be good news or conversations that inspire you. This is a time of big ideas and creative vision. Your optimism can lead you to consider something you never felt was in the realm of possibility. The important thing now is that you’re feeling inspired and allowing new ideas to flow. Stretch your mind far and fill in all of the details later when good energy is with you for doing so.

Tarot Card of the Day

Seven of Coins


October 16, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Seven of this suit is typically a paean to the humble laborer who is willing to show up every day and sweat in the sun for next season’s bounty. The traditional concept is cultivation, with an attitude that slow and steady wins the race, with faith in nature’s assistance. The protagonist of this card doesn’t make excuses, isn’t whimsical or moody, but is dedicated and sees the job through. Of course, it’s no good to count your chickens before they hatch, but there’s no question that the person who is vigilant over a project is more likely to get the desired result.

Someone who works with nature, cooperating with her ways, will waste less energy and time than the person who works against her. As a side meaning, we sometimes see this normally humble farmer in a moment of frenzy, betting the crop on a roll of the dice. This represents a moment of dementia, addiction or desperation which hopefully will not last long enough for the farmer to lose everything!

The Sun

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

The Judgement

The Judgement card represents a sexual awakening, and now that you aren’t afraid to move in a new direction, a whole new world awaits you. What sex positions do you want to try, and which fantasies have you been dying to act out? Being honest with yourself and potential partner(s) about the details of what you desire will help you get what you want faster, and the end result will be much more satisfying. And above all, enjoy your sexual liberation!

Earth Sky News for Monday, October 16th: Keep watching moon, Venus, Mars

Before dawn tomorrow – October 17, 2017 – continue watching the spectacular moon and planets before dawn. The waning moon and Venus will easily catch your eye. The faint starlike point of light near the moon is the red planet Mars. Dazzling Venus outshines Mars by some 200 times now.

The sky chart at top shows the morning scene for mid-northern North American latitudes. But no matter where you live worldwide, look for faint Mars near the moon and for brilliant Venus below the moon and Mars. From mid-northern latitudes in Europe and Asia, the moon appears higher up relative to Mars than the lunar crescent appears in North America.

Click here for recommended almanacs; they can give you the rising times for the moon, Mars, Venus and the sun in your sky.

As the predawn darkness gives way to dawn, expect Mars to disappear in the glare of morning twilight while the moon and Venus remain in view. Some sharp-sighted sky watchers might even see the moon and Venus after sunrise. After all, the moon and Venus rank as the second-brightest and third-brightest bodies to light up the heavens, respectively, after the sun.

Earth orbits the sun in between the orbits of Venus and Mars. Venus is the 2nd planet outward from the sun, and Mars is the 4th. Earth, of course, is the 3rd planet out from our local star.

Why is Mars so faint now, while Venus is so bright? Venus, the larger of these two planets, is always bright in our sky, in part because of its nearness to us, but also because its surface is covered with highly reflective clouds. Mars lacks those thick clouds, and is far across the solar system from Earth now.

Bottom line: Before dawn tomorrow – on October 17, 2017 – watch for the spectacular view of the moon, Mars and Venus.
