Though this year and this month have been such a struggle, this week we finally get the silver lining. But first, on Sunday the 18th, the sun—our life force––makes a harsh square to taskmaster Saturn making us feel like time is running out––in literally every area of our life. And with sweet Venus opposing hazy Neptune on the same day, we might rush into a less than ideal solution to fight this feeling. Focusing on the “why” can keep us from getting lost in the process.
On Monday the 19th, both Venus and Mars retrograde make energizing aspects to expansive Jupiter bringing fresh perspective to a work project or budding romance. Let’s watch out for mixed messages though as communication planet Mercury is still retrograde and makes an opposition to shocking Uranus on the same day. Some surprising information from October 7 might return with yet another layer of intrigue.
The sun enters Scorpio on Thursday the 22nd––happy birthday to our most loyal and secretive of babes like Katy Perry, Bjork and Drake! With love planet Venus making supportive aspects to transformational Pluto and steady Saturn in the second half of the week, the question of the season is: How can we turn our burning passions––or even our deep obsessions– into mutual respect?
