Astrology Forecast for the Week of October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021 features three major aspects (Venus square Neptune, Venus sextile Jupiter, and Sun square Saturn), and Mars is moving out of Libra and into his sign of Scorpio.

Cosmic Overview:

This week Mars moves out of Libra, where he is in detriment, and into Scorpio, the sign he rules. Mars in Libra is concerned with relationships and seeks the opinion and approval of others.  However, Mars in Scorpio is focused, determined, self-disciplined and strategic. While Mars is in Scorpio, you have the power to achieve results and the tenacity to follow your goals until you achieve what you want. So, it’s a great time to get out your goal list, pick one out, and work on it until you get results. A word of advice – don’t miss this cycle of Mars because it only happens once every two years. Mars enters Scorpio on October 30th.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, October 25, 2021

The Moon moves through Gemini most of the day. If you need to get stuff done, make sure you do it during the morning hours, because the Moon will spend the afternoon hours void of course.  This evening, the Moon moves through Cancer, and you may feel ‘the feels’ a little more than you usually do.  It’s an excellent night to relax and practice some self-care.

Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Venus square Neptune is problematic for relationships based on fantasy and illusion. If you experience troubles, you may want to look at your relationship and question whether your relationship expectations are unrealistic. In many cases, life difficulties will force you to look at things realistically, leading to feelings of dissolution and disappointment.  Sometimes, betrayals may surface that leave you shattered and feeling deceived. As difficult as things may be, try to avoid falling into victim mindsets. Instead, try to face your feelings and manage them productively.

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

The Moon spends its last day in emotional Cancer.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to Neptune during the morning hours.  Moon trine Neptune is an excellent aspect for creative projects, and you will find that you are emotionally sensitive to others.  However, be on guard this evening because complicated emotions may surface as the Moon squares turbulent Pluto.

Thursday, October 28, 2021

On Thursday, Venus sextiles Jupiter in Aquarius. This is an aspect you want to use to your advantage, because it’s the last positive aspect between Venus and Jupiter (the lesser and greater benefics) for six months, because Venus turns retrograde in December. Venus sextile Jupiter is exceptionally beneficial and will definitely brighten your day. This aspect is excellent for financial concerns, investments, and legal matters.

On the relationship front, be mindful of Venus square Neptune that occurred on Tuesday.  Forgiveness and working through relationship problems are crucial, but falling back into toxic patterns or believing that things will magically change is not. Venus sextile Jupiter can easily overlook issues, and this can lead to wishful thinking. Avoid looking at relationship issues with rose-colored glasses.

Friday, October 29, 2021

The Moon moves through playful Leo and forms a lovely sextile to Mercury in Libra.  It’s a fine day to spend time with friends and like-minded people, so you can engage in insightful conversations and share life experiences.  For those in relationships, the Moon in romantic Leo is excellent for a date night.

Saturday, October 30, 2021

On Saturday, besides Mars moving into Scorpio, the Sun forms a nasty square to Saturn in Aquarius. When the Sun conjoins, sextiles, or trines Jupiter, we are blessed with the most positive days of the year.  Conversely, when the Sun conjoins, squares, or opposes Saturn, we experience the most challenges.  Saturday is one of those days!

Sun square Saturn brings out feelings of self-doubt and discouragement.  You may feel that forces are against you or are limiting your ability to succeed.  This may be a day filled with frustrations, and you may believe that you do not have the energy to push through your limitations.  The key to working with this aspect is to note the areas of your life that Sun square Saturn influences, and this will give you a roadmap of where to do personal work and build self-confidence. So, despite the way you feel, press in and press on!

Sunday, October 31, 2021

Happy Halloween! The Moon moves through dutiful Virgo throughout the day, so get your tasks done early so you can participate in festivities tonight. Just be on the watch for surprising tricks, because the Moon aspects unpredictable Uranus this evening.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of October 18, 2021 – October 24, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 18, 2021 – October 24, 2021 features a Full Moon in Aries, two major aspects (Mars trine Jupiter and Mars square Pluto), Mercury and Jupiter turning direct, and the beginning of Scorpio season. Cosmic energies will continue to improve with a large blip on Friday, but it should be a decent week.

Cosmic Overview:

First, Mercury turns direct on October 18, and minor annoyances and communication snafus may occur as Mercury stations and changes directions. As we move through the week, Mercury retrograde issues, particularly with relationships, will slowly improve. This is an excellent week to repair any damage to relationships or friendships that happened while the retrograde was active. Also, anything that you have put on hold during the retrograde can now be initiated and completed.

Next, we have the Full Moon in Aries, which occurs on October 20. The good news is Mercury is now direct!  The bad news is that Mars (the ruler of Aries) is in detriment in Libra. So, to work with this energy, we must tweak how we would work with the planetary ruler.

The Full Moon in Aries is a two-week cycle of letting go of personal attributes that we may not like about ourselves or are no longer effective.  Are there any individual behaviors that you would like to let go of?  Oh, and news flash – we all have them! Since Mars is in Libra, you can also look at how you behave in relationships and let go of unhealthy personal patterns that may limit the relationship’s growth.  This work is not uncomplicated, but the fruits of your internal work will pay off in the end.

Now on with the forecast…

Monday, October 18, 2021

The first aspect of the week happens on Monday when Mars trines Jupiter. This will be an energetic week with plenty of activity, and since Jupiter is direct, there is the potential for good fortune and matters going your way. Mars trine Jupiter is a powerful aspect for putting yourself first and focusing on activities that promote your self-interests. Otherwise, Mars trine Jupiter is optimistic, energetic, and enthusiastic, so go after your desires with no regrets.

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in Aries, preparing for the monthly Full Moon cycle on Tuesday. The Aries Moon is courageous, confident, and passionate, so the beneficial energies from yesterday will spill over into today. It’s an excellent day to focus on your wants, needs, and desires.  Sometimes, you need to put yourself first, and do you!

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Besides the potent Full Moon (see above) that occurs today, the Moon battles with Mars and Pluto. As a result, you can expect your emotions to be on high alert, and there is potential for arguments and power plays.  Keep controlling and manipulative people at arm’s length, because they will only steal your joy.

Thursday, October 21, 2021

Today, the Moon spends its first full day in stable Taurus. Expect things to slow down to a crawl during the morning hours as the Moon squares Saturn.  Minor frustrations and annoyances may be prevalent throughout the day, but your energy levels should return as the Moon conjoins exciting Uranus this evening. Since the Moon moving through Taurus invites you to indulge in the pleasures of life, do something you deeply enjoy.

Friday, October 22, 2021

Remember that large blip I talked about at the beginning of the forecast? Well, it happens today as Mars tangles with Pluto.  Mars square Pluto is a discordant aspect that often provokes disagreements between people, especially if problems or animosities have been lurking in the background for a while.  You may experience fierce opposition from others. Avoid underhanded activities even if you feel they are justified because they will only lead to blowback.  Stay away from dangerous people and places!

Saturday, October 23, 2021

We change astrological seasons today as the Sun moves out of Libra and into Scorpio.  Scorpio season is about digging deep into the secret parts of ourselves – our fears, phobias, and dysfunctions.  Although the season’s energy is intense, we can conquer our personal demons with a bit of reflection and willingness to change.

Sunday, October 24, 2021

Finally, we close the week with the Moon moving through social Gemini. It’s an excellent day for fun, frolic, and great conversation.  Sharing your ideas and opinions with others will be vital to you at this time. However, this evening you may need an extra dose of caffeine or an energy drink, as the Moon squares Neptune.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for October 4, 2021 – October 10, 2021

Astrology Forecast for October 4, 2021 – October 10, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 4, 2021 through October 10, 2021 features three planetary aspects (Sun conjunct Mars, Sun conjunct Mercury, and Mercury conjunct Mars), a sign change for Venus, two planets turning direct, and a New Moon in Libra.

It’s going to be a busy week, but a relatively positive one. So, make sure you enjoy it while the good vibrations last. However, keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde.

Cosmic Overview

The New Moon in Libra occurs on Wednesday, October 6. Although ordinarily, a New Moon in Libra would be an excellent time to attract a new relationship, Mercury is ‘retched out,’ and Venus (the ruler of Libra) is in her detriment in Scorpio. So instead, use this New Moon to create new paradigms within your current relationships, which are not limited to romantic ones.

If you are currently single, you can make a list of all the attributes you would like out of a mate and do cleansing magic to signify your desire for a fresh start. If you are in a relationship, you can use the New Moon to reset (such a lovely Mercury RX word) the energies and create a more fulfilling dynamic that will help improve the relationship’s overall health. In other relationships, you can modify how you work with the New Moon based on the needs of that relationship. The key is formulating new and productive ways to make them healthier.

Now, one with the forecast…

Monday, October 4, 2021

The Moon moves through Virgo and for most of the day opposes confusing Neptune. Therefore, it’s best to focus on tasks that require little effort or concentration because Neptune may keep you distracted and unfocused. However, you can use this energy to tap into spirit, do some meditation, or work on creative or artistic projects.

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

Whereas Monday is a blurry, unfocused mess, Tuesday is the exact opposite. The Moon moves into Libra and forms a lovely aspect to Saturn. It’s an excellent day to complete tasks that you need to finish and get the job done. If you need a solution to a problem today, the simplest solution is the right one.

Wednesday, October 6, 2021

Besides the New Moon occurring in Libra, the Moon makes several aspects throughout the day – a conjunction to Mars, a conjunction to Mercury, and a lovely trine to Jupiter in Aquarius. Overall, it should be a positive day with an energy boost from Mars, great conversations with friends and associates thanks to Mercury, and a more optimistic view of the future thanks to Jupiter. Try to keep a balanced mindset throughout the day.

Thursday, October 7, 2021

Venus moves out of turbulent Scorpio and enters joyful Sagittarius. This is a bit of relief for Venus, who prefers light over darkness. You will seek adventure in your relationships, and you will find that relationships that are stuck in a rut will not do it for you anymore. While Venus is in Sagittarius, it’s a wonderful time to add a little spice to your romantic life and liven things up a little. Venus remains in Sagittarius until November 5.

Friday, October 8, 2021

The Sun conjoins Mars in Libra. Ordinarily, this energy is excellent for starting projects or beginning new ventures, but with Mercury being retrograde, you should proceed with caution. Instead, begin to plan your objectives and strategies, and then you can enact them when Mercury goes direct on October 18. Further, if you have been unhappy with the condition of your life, this is a potent conjunction that will help you break free and begin to live the life you desire. Finally, for the air and fire signs, Sun conjunct Mars may provide you with a much-needed boost of energy.

Saturday, October 9, 2021

This week, Saturday is the only day that comes with a caution sticker – beware of bears and don’t purposely poke them. Mercury Rx will conjoin Mars in Libra, and you will need to put a watch on your tongue because you may say things you will later regret. Mercury conjunct Mars can be argumentative, reactive, and impulsive. So, make sure you keep your guard up. It is best to avoid people that may trigger you. On a positive note, if you need to perform tasks that require a lot of mental energy, this is an auspicious time to work on them.

Sunday, October 10, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through fun-loving Sagittarius. It’s a magnificent day to break away from the daily grind and do things you enjoy. You may want to do a day trip, a Halloween-themed event, or do something amusing. The main takeaway from the Moon in Sagittarius is letting your spirit sore, and your inner child run free. You can adult another day!

See you next week!
