This week begins with a new moon in Scorpio on the 15th. New moons are a fresh start, and, in Scorpio, this lunation is all about going deep and getting to the heart of the matter. It’s about going after something that’s important to us even if we’re only able to take the first step.
On the 17th, Mercury opposes rebellious Uranus for the third time (previously on October 7th and 19th), which further encourages getting to work on an unconventional—potentially way out there!—idea. Venus, planet of love, money and connection, makes aspects to life-changing Pluto, expansive Jupiter and steady Saturn before entering secretive Scorpio on the 21st. Though we may want to dive into the next relationship, project or obsession, there’s always room to be disciplined in our approach. We can be excited while still keeping that excitement to ourselves.
Sagittarius season arrives on the 21st. This is the sign of groundbreaking badass babes from Stacey Abrams to Miley Cyrus to Dame Judi Dench. After the serious introspection of the last few weeks, this is a welcome, more lighthearted shift. It’s OK to just have fun. Seriously.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
