October 17th week:

This week Mercury and Jupiter will go direct. Mercury direct means that the planet Mercury is moving forward. Mercury in retrograde gives the appearance of a planet moving backwards, however that is an optical illusion. This aspect can  cause upheaval and life to slow down.  Mercury in Libra  highlights your relationships that needed a little improvisation. It will take about 3 weeks to get things sorted out, but Mercury will start moving forward on Monday and so will Jupiter.  It’s been a slow slog since the end of September.   

October 20th Full Moon in Aries in a fire sign: If you have planets in the last degrees of cardinal signs ( Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)  make sure to take a little extra time and be mindful of your actions. Aries is the mirror of Libra. Libra is ruled by Venus and Aries is ruled by Mars they are opposites and attract each other. Robert Hand, a famous astrologer, said “Venus and Mars are complementary principles that both strongly determine the nature of sexual attraction.”

October 23  the Sun changes to Scorpio: Scorpio is an intense sign, they get their feelings hurt easily but they don’t back down from a fight. Scorpio wants to know what is going on in your mind.
