The Astrology Forecast for the Week of October 10, 2022 – October 16, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of October 10, 2022 through October 16, 2022 features three major planetary aspects (Mars square Neptune, Mercury opposes Jupiter, and Venus trines Saturn) and Mercury moves out of Virgo and back into Libra.

So, without further ado, let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week is Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces. Mars is the action planet; he goes out and gets us what we want and desire. When Mars tangles with Mars we often feel like our energy sources have been sapped or depleted. Now, this can be extremely frustrating if we have to do something or need to use energy to accomplish our goals. If you can, it’s best to involve yourself in spiritual matters or charitable activities, but if you can’t back away from the grind (Mars square Neptune happens on October 12th), you may need to manage your patience.

Also, be careful with shady people, because they will be lurking heavily while this aspect is active.  Avoid them at all costs!

Mercury moves out of Virgo and back into Libra.  Keep in mind that Mercury went retrograde in Libra on September 9th, so for many, it’s going to feel like back to the future. Mercury in Virgo is about collecting data to make a decision; whereas Mercury in Libra is about going out and getting the opinions of others so that we can make sound choices.  Often, we get our greatest inspiration when we have balanced exchanges with others. Mercury remains in Libra until October 29th.

The Moon moves through earthy Taurus. If you need to resolve financial issues, this is a perfect day to do what you can to bring them to resolution.  It’s also an excellent day to do things that you enjoy. Life is for the living, and Taurus is all about enjoying the simplicities of life.

Besides Mars forming a difficult square to Neptune, Mercury opposes Jupiter. The problem with these two aspects is that they can lead to over inflated thoughts, that may not be realistic. In fact, they may be complete illusions. Otherwise, with the low energy inherent in Mars square Neptune, it’s a great day to look at your long-range goals and make modifications if necessary.

The Moon moves into Gemini during the early morning hours, and it forms beneficial aspects to Jupiter and Mercury. After a difficult Wednesday, it’s time to let your hair down and have some fun. The Moon in Gemini is great for socializing and connected with others. Sharing your thoughts and opinions with others will be important to you and feed your soul.

Friday, October 14, 2022

Venus in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius. It’s an auspicious time to do what you can to make your relationships more stable. If you’ve been going through problems, it’s a great time to discuss them because you are more malleable to find a solution. Venus trine Saturn is also good for managing your finances and getting your fiscal situation in order.

Saturday, October 15, 2022

Throughout the morning hours the Moon will be void of course in Gemini. Avoid making firm decisions and starting something new until early afternoon when the Moon moves into Cancer. The rest of the day is good for domestic related activities and connecting with loved ones.

Sunday, October 16, 2022

The Moon continues its monthly trip through Cancer. During the morning hours, the Moon squares Mercury, so minor communication snafus may be annoying.  However, despite an increased emotional sensitivity to those around you, it should be an overall decent day.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 22, 2022 – August 28, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of August 22, 2022 through August 28, 2022 features four major aspects (Mercury trine Pluto, Venus square Uranus, the Sun square Mars, and Venus oppose Saturn), two sign changes (The Sun moves into Virgo and Mercury moves into Libra), Uranus turns retrograde, and a New Moon in Virgo occurs on Saturday.

Lot’s of changes happen this week.  Let’s dive in!

Cosmic Overview

Each astrological season allows us to tap into energies that help us navigate our way through life. Over the last month, we have traveled through Leo season, which is about creativity, self-expression, self-understanding, and getting in touch with who we are.  This month, we move into the sign of Virgo, and although it’s not as glamorous or exciting as fiery Leo, it’s pivotal for self-development.

Virgo season is about life management. In the mystical Kabbalah, Virgo is called Elul, the month of Teshuvah. Teshuvah is the practice of reviewing the past year, recognizing the mistakes we’ve made, trying to do better in the future, and moving on.  The key is THE MOVING ON and managing your life in ways that serve your greater good. Also, since Virgo is a sign associated with health, it’s an auspicious time to get a checkup or being a health or exercise program.

Now, on with the forecast.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, August 22, 2022

We start the week off with the Sun moving into Virgo, which is given a boost by Mercury (the ruler of Virgo), forming a beneficial trine to Pluto.  Mercury trine Pluto helps us dig deep so we can take honesty inventory of our lives.  We can then make changes and transform our strategies into something useful and productive. If you seek inner answers to help you understand your life better, today is the day to do the work.

Tuesday, August 23, 2022

The Moon moves through watery Cancer.  The Moon in Cancer likes to be domestic.  It’s an excellent day to take care of household responsibilities, cook an amazing meal, or redecorate. However, be mindful that you may feel things more intensely than you ordinarily would. Practice self-care if you feel overwhelmed.

Wednesday, August 24, 2022

Uranus, the great awakener planet, turns retrograde in Taurus. Ordinarily, Uranus likes to shake up the system, tear down the status quo, and force change – for better or worse. When Uranus turns retrograde, he calms down in the outer world, and turns inward, reflecting a period for us to focus on inner changes or ways we can shake up our own world. This is an excellent time to review long-term goals, create new strategies, or modify your objectives.  Uranus remains retrograde until the beginning of 2023.

Thursday, August 25, 2022

Mercury moves out of Virgo and into Libra.  Many consider Mercury in Libra to be wishy washy or incapable of making decisions. And, although this may appear on the surface, Mercury in the sign of the scales needs to weigh the options and ideas of others so they can make informed decisions. It’s a great day to sign contracts, forge agreements, tend to legal matters, and work on unresolved relationship issues.  Just remember Mercury turns retrograde in Libra on September 9th.

Friday, August 26, 2022

The Moon spends the day void of course in Leo.  Avoid starting anything new or making any firm decisions until the Moon moves into Virgo at 8:25 PM EDT/5:25 PM PDT. Otherwise, nothing will come of the matters, and situations will fizzle out.

Saturday, August 27, 2022

It’s going to be a busy day, with Venus forming a tense square to Uranus and the Sun squaring Mars.  Relationship issues may surface during the early part of the day, which may prove problematic if you approach things with a stubborn mindset. To make matters more challenging, Venus square Uranus may feed into Sun square Mars, and you may butt heads with others and prideful ego issues may get in the way of rational thought. Try to be mindful and practice proactive behaviors.

Sunday, August 28, 2022

We close the week with Venus opposing Saturn. You may have trouble relating to the people around you, which could lead to feelings of loneliness. If you’ve been sacrificing your personal happiness to please others, then you may be forced to make changes so that you can get your own needs met. Try not to fall into self-pity, it’s a color that never looked good on anyone.

See you next week!
