So, the last several months we have been under a deluge of astrological aspects and extremely difficult cosmic weather, and I always find it interesting when real-world events mirror astrology, which was visible during Hurricane Michael, and the devastation that the cyclone left on the Florida panhandle. This week we have only positive astrological aspects so that you can breathe a sigh of relief.
The biggest newsmaker of the week is Jupiter changing signs on Thursday when he moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. I won’t cover Jupiter in this blog post because I wrote an entire post about him, which you can read – Jupiter in Sagittarius: The Age of Hope and Optimism. You will want to check this out because I reveal how each sign is affected by Jupiter moving into the sign of the archer.
But, before Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, we have a New Moon that occurs in Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of transformation, but it’s also the sign that governs our repressed unconscious that assists in creating our self-defeating behaviors. You can use this New Moon to let go of behavioral patterns that no longer work for you and heal the underlying issues. If you are magically inclined, the New Moon in Scorpio is great for uncrossing, cut and clear, and healing trauma work. For those less magically inclined, family of origin or shame work may be beneficial. Regardless, Scorpio is about shedding your old skin and replacing it with a new you.

The Moon moves through Libra and forms a square to Pluto. Feelings you have held onto or have not acknowledged may surface during the afternoon hours, and despite your emotional urges, it’s best to avoid compulsive behaviors. If you face any difficulties with others, the Moon trine to Mars will boost your confidence, and you will feel more assertive. It’s best to show your leadership skills because they will benefit you in the eyes of others, potentially opening doors in the days to come.

It’s election day, so make sure you participate in your civic duty by voting. Regardless of your political beliefs, voting is the most fundamental way for you to speak up and let your voice be heard.
Astrologically, we have a couple of aspects to mention. First, the Sun forms a lovely trine to Neptune, and your intuition will be off the charts. But, Sun trine Neptune makes you thirsty for more out of life, and this is a great time for you to question whether your spiritual or physical needs are being met. Secondly, Sun trine Neptune dovetails into Uranus returning to the sign of Aries. One of the keys to Uranus in Aries is experiencing a sense of inner freedom, and one of the ways we quickly realize our freedom is directly proportional to whether we feel that our needs are met. Uranus in Aries will give you the itch to let go of traditional structures that are no longer working for you and helps you embark on a new path.
It’s New Moon magic day. The Moon joins the Sun at 11:02 AM on the east coast of the US. This is an auspicious time for you to do magical or intention work with the New Moon. Also, the Moon makes only positive aspects throughout the day, so matters that concern you should flow smoothly.

The Moon continues its trek through emotional Scorpio and forms a rather volatile aspect to Mars during the morning hours. You may feel a bit edgy and irritable but try to avoid doing anything rash or impulsive.
After the Moon squares Mars, it spends the rest of the morning void of course before it moves into Sagittarius. Try to avoid signing documents or forming firm agreements until the afternoon hours, and any difficulties that occur during the morning hours will be resolved with the Moon conjoins Jupiter.

There is a powerful aspect between Venus retrograde and Mars during the late morning hours. After spending several weeks retrograde, if you did the work, you will have acquired a lot of insight into your relationships. As a result, you are concerned that your partner’s needs are met in the relationship, as well. Since it’s Friday, spend some time with your partner and spice things up. Maybe, dinner, a movie, and a little bit of something extra.
Saturday is great for relaxing and having some fun. All the aspects the Moon makes through Sagittarius are positive, and its final aspect to Uranus will shake things up. Do something fun and exciting and make the most out the spectacular energy available.
On Sunday, the Sun forms a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. Sun-Pluto aspects give you the gumption to make changes that you need to make in your life. This is a powerful time to clear up any personal messes you have made and set things straight.
See you next week…
