Wednesday, October 13 — Jupiter has been in a mildly favorable (30-degree aspect) with Pluto since September 1. This lasts until November 30. The aspect promises success financially if and only if steadfast effort is consistently activated. It requires legal action, permits, well thought-out plans and terrific organizational ability. Then success comes. A very different energy will be taking place today until midnight. I’m referring to the Sun in an awkward aspect with Neptune. This aspect produces low physical energy with a tendency to feel discouraged. Mercury is retrograde until October 18, reminding all of us that this is a bad time to sign a legal document. Good news! The Sun in Libra is in a super-fine aspect with Jupiter in Aquarius until Friday. Something is percolating. You can embrace hope. Financially, there is some sort of improvement on the horizon. That’s what it looks like astrologically. This is also an ideal time for brainstorming at a meeting.

Thursday, October 14 — The Sun remains in a super-fine aspect with Jupiter, ushering in optimism. The Sun now forms a challenging aspect with Pluto until Sunday. Those with control issues will attempt to impose their will on you. Hold your ground. Be true to yourself. Those in abusive relationships could be in trouble. This might be the time to help someone find “a safe home.” New Hope for Women knows what to do. If you enjoy writing, take advantage of the positive aspect between Mercury and Venus until Saturday. You may find yourself on an emotional roller coaster while the Moon in Aquarius is roughly aspecting Uranus from 2:45 until 4:45 p.m. The energy will be chaotic. If it’s not cloudy, you could view the Moon and Jupiter moving closer together between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. This takes place once a month. It’s Justin Hayward’s birthday. You know, the lead singer-songwriter guitar playing lead vocalist of the Moody Blues. Here’s a great song for you by Justin: “Story in Your Eyes.” Visit youtube.com/watch?v=ZM8KProoCys.

Friday, October 15 — The Sun and Jupiter offer possibilities for financial gain until noon, especially for those born: February 10–12, June 12–14, October 14–16, and December 13–15 of any year. You’ll be relaxed between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. when the Moon is conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius and also in a super-fine aspect with the Sun in Libra. This gifts us with inspired thoughts. Mars is in an awkward aspect with Neptune. You may want to take a nap. Your energy is lower than usual. Some of you will feel the romantic vibes of Venus in a super-fine aspect with the asteroid Chiron. It will bring blessings to all those born March 29–April 1, August 1–3 and December 1–3 of any year.

Saturday, October 16 — Venus ends her romantic vibe at 5 p.m. This aspect is also known to inspire artists. Mars remains in a low energy aspect with Neptune until midnight. Your energy will return with Mars entering a powerful aspect with Jupiter until Monday. You can accomplish what you set out to do. Venus is in playful Sagittarius until November 5, telling you, “Don’t worry, be happy.” Do what you enjoy. Know that by doing so you are spreading joy into a world needing positive energy.

Sunday, October 17 — Mars is zapping you with huge waves of enthusiasm and physical energy but it’s Sunday, not the time for working. It continues until tomorrow. This could be the ideal time to spend with your family enjoying one another and fixing a few things for your grandma. The Sun is still in a challenging aspect to Pluto until midnight. The Sun and Pluto will perpetuate conflict due to power and control issues. Anger and impatience will surface. Conflict is likely to be eruptive from noon until 2 p.m. while the Moon is in an awkward aspect with Mars. Resolution comes between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. while the Moon makes a positive aspect with Pluto. This is the time to open to forgiving yourself and the other person. I’m not referring to abuse. Forgiveness does not come that quickly, if at all, with abuse. I believe forgiveness is a gift from the divine and not something a person can simply conjur up; that’s been my experience.

Monday, October 18 — Jupiter has been in retrograde motion since June 20 and turns direct at 1:30 a.m. We should see improvements in the stock market and other investment gambling games. Some say it’s best to wait one more day to sign a legal document, even though Mercury turns direct today at 11:17 a.m. Mercury has been retrograding since September 27. Mars and Jupiter remain in an energetic aspect until midnight. This is the ideal aspect to have for giving birth. It is often known to make the labor process shorter. The Full Moon is approaching. It will take place on Wednesday at 10:57 a.m.

Tuesday, October 19 — Venus is awkwardly aspecting Uranus, bringing challenges to an already unstable relationship. If the two of you want to remain in a relationship there’s work to be done. Mars is in a challenging aspect with Pluto until Thursday. This is an accident-prone time. Anger is more eruptive now. This week has seen explosive defensive emotional reactions. This could be serious. The Full Moon tomorrow makes this day more agitating for some. The Sun leaves Libra on Saturday, when it enters Scorpio at 12:51 a.m. You’ll feel the shift, for sure.
