October 3 – 9, 2012
For All Signs: There are so many changes and aspects this week that I hardly know where to begin. Mercury, Venus, and Mars, and Saturn are all changing signs while Jupiter is turning retrograde. The only unaffected signs are Cancer and Leo. I’d have to say that almost everyone will be in “hurry” mode. Traffic will surely be affected while people change their minds about lanes and whether or not they want to make a turn. Drive watchfully. The change of signs of so many planets suggests energy similar to that of a Mercury retrograde. Decisions may be altered and new plans adopted.
Aries: As the week begins, you are concluding items of business related to finances, investments, or shared resources. On the 6th you will notice a shift into a new direction. It will likely be related to contacting people at a distance, preparing to travel, seeking professional advice, or focused on education. Don’t be disillusioned by a distraction on the 7th. It is of short duration.
Taurus: Venus, your ruling planet, moves into the sector of life related to children, recreation, and romance. The goddess of love is happy in this territory and often brings new energy and light wherever she goes. You may choose to give your time to one who is less fortunate. Good fortune for you from the 8th—10th.
Gemini: Take up whatever activities you need on a daily basis to resolve or prevent health problems. You may feel a compulsion to clean up files, closets, or other areas of detail. It is one way of organizing your mind. It is a good time to catalogue, classify, and coordinate details for your next project.
Cancer: It will be important at this time to use firmness about your boundaries. This is likely to be particularly so with children, and even lovers who may want to overrun your plans. The warrior is in your corner. Count on him for protection. Others will back off.
Leo: Much of your activity at present is related to the world “out there”, the people who inhabit your environment. It is possible you will sense a droop in your own energy near the 8th, but improvement follows the very next day. Overall it is a good time to share yourself with others.
Virgo: Venus enters your sign this week and will be traveling "with you" through most of October. Her presence gives you an air of poise and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms and want to make things in the environment more attractive. We are also more interested in beautifying ourselves.
Libra: Saturn is departing your sign and it will be a relief. You have spent the past cycle working toward redefining who you want to become in the world. However you may have done it, the probability is that it was costly in more ways than one. You know how much you have grown and changed through this valuable education.
Scorpio: Resources outside your income may become scarce and cause you to kick into gear. Issues of money and resources, or matters of personal values will be prominent as motivators. Hold to your core center rather than others to keep you balanced in this period.
Sagittarius: Mars, the warrior, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you for six weeks. This energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. You must take charge of the energy and focus it productively so it won't run you.
Capricorn: You have completed a period of mastery in career or life direction. During the next year you will be rewarded for it. The community you have developed is a fine resource. Those who are literally promoted will learn quickly who is truly a friend. You are moving into "payback" time for all your hard efforts of the past decade.
Aquarius: You may be completing a period of education and preparation for a new title in your career or life direction. Perhaps you have been traveling for the sake of business, or seeking mastery in some other way. If you love what you do, then you are on the verge of a leap ahead. If you are unhappy, then your option to change directions comes soon.
Pisces: Jupiter has been moving rapidly through your area of home, hearth, property, and family since June. You have likely made a number of household improvements. Now the externalized action of those activities will slide into the background. The family relationships and protecting your security take the foreground now.
