Your horoscope for October 25 to 31, 2012
Thursday’s sun/Saturn conjunction marks a reality checkpoint; a definitive line in the sand; a goal, contract, or conclusion reached; or wrap-it-up time. Once we’re over this hump, there’ll be no time to waste. We’ll immediately jump onto the next page or crusade, thanks to Mars on an escalating trajectory with Jupiter through Sunday.
No matter what vehicle, impetus, or cause puts things in drive, the weekend covers more than the usual distance—and more rapidly too. On a positive note, Mars/Jupiter can prompt timeliness, opportune action, or added luck. They can increase, expand, inflate, exaggerate, overwhelm, or overdo. We’ll see larger gatherings, movements, events, volumes, and profits. Expectations run higher too. Mars/Jupiter is an impulsive, quick, risk-taking, no-holds-barred transit. On the shoot-yourself-in-the-foot side, you can spend more, say more, or get more deeply involved than is wise.
Mars/Jupiter perfects its transit just minutes before Venus advances into Libra. By the end of the day, Mercury treks into Sagittarius. Both planetary shifts will contribute to extremity experience and intensification momentum.
Monday’s full moon in Taurus occurs at 12:49 p.m. What goes up can come down with a thud. Watch money markets. Expect a hard, harsh, or draining start to the day. The morning can deliver added uncertainty, confusion, loss, the unforeseen, or a hidden advantage. Past midday, the stars help us to find our way back onto a more workable and productive track.
March 19 - April 19
Thursday finishes things off and gets the ball rolling. You should find you’re able to accomplish things easily and well. The sun’s conjunction to Saturn puts an emphasis on important financial and relationship matters. What’s already on brew can spill over on Sunday or Monday, thanks to the full moon. It’s a definitive time-has-come moment. Get on with it.
April 19 - May 20
You can—and will—pull it together. In fact, once Saturn hits with that heaping dose of reality, there’s no choice but to get down to business. Look to Sunday’s Mars/Jupiter and Monday’s full moon in Taurus to provide all the impetus you need—and then some. Something that previously escaped your notice or understanding provides your answer, solution, or ticket.
May 20 - June 20
Beyond a much-anticipated cut-loose, take-off, or big-event weekend, something major is on brew. Mars/Jupiter keeps it on a build-up curve to Sunday. When it hits, it can hit all at once. You could be bombarded, easily impressed, or completely blown away. Monday’s full moon suggests you have more going for you than you realize. Seize the moment and take your best shot.
June 20 - July 22
Over the next few days, a facilitating grand trine in water keeps the flow going strong. The now can be an exceptionally fulfilling time for creative undertakings and the heart journey. Regarding work, health, and healing mandates, Sunday’s Mars/Jupiter and Monday’s full moon require more but offer more too. Keep striving; better compensation, results, and answers are within reach.
July 22 - August 22
Family, real estate, renovations, health, wealth, or work concerns and reconciling with your past can drive a harder bargain now. What crystallizes for you or within you sets your new agenda into play. Mars/Jupiter builds more incentive through Sunday, compelling you to take a leap of faith. Monday’s full moon challenges you to stay on task, on time, or on budget.
August 22 - September 22
Your expectations and drive are likely to run especially high through the weekend. Don’t let anxiety, pressure to perform, or an exaggerated need fuel you, or you’ll cost yourself more than was necessary. Instead, stay confident, hopeful, and realistic. Monday’s supportive full moon challenges you to put a better strategy into play in order to enlist the cooperation and support you seek.
September 22 - October 22
A special event, workshop, or getaway weekend is sure to put things over the top. Mars, in building opposition to Jupiter through Sunday, also keeps impulsiveness hot-wired. Spend, share, divulge, or act—it won’t be a little, and it will likely be a lot. Starting Sunday, Venus in Libra sparks even more. Monday’s full moon forces the envelope on financial matters and trust issues.
October 22 - November 21
Motivation, vitality, opportunity, and advantage stay strong through the weekend. Mars, in building opposition to Jupiter, keeps it—and you—in overdrive. The up-front output or expense may be significant, but it should prove worthy. Your intuition is tracking things a good step ahead; keep playing it smart. Monday’s full moon reveals or confirms, but there’s still more to come.
November 21 - December 21
Besides dishing up a fun party or social weekend, Mars/Jupiter spurs you on to a major initiative. It’s probably been in the works for some time now, but Sunday and Monday thrust it into fuller gear. Don’t underestimate what’s here now and what’s on the way. Affecting health, work, and financial matters, Mercury’s entrance into Sagittarius is also a catalyst for next month’s solar eclipse.
December 21 - January 20
You’ll pull it out of somewhere, and you could surprise yourself when you do. Mars and Jupiter keep you on full throttle through Monday’s full moon. Your ability to articulate, get connected, justify yourself, and/or strike a better deal is at peak. While compromise is necessary, hold out for what you know you deserve.
January 20 - February 18
Once you’ve surpassed Thursday, it’s off to the races you go. Friday through Sunday is an especially fast-paced period of time, and for the most part you’ll like it that way. You’ll draw added favour and social benefit from the sign advances of both Venus and Mercury. Family, career, or an added expense puts you under pressure on Monday.
February 18 - March 19
The stars dish out more than usual through Monday’s full moon, but so long as you can keep track of yourself and your emotions, you should find the wherewithal to cope just fine. Don’t race too far ahead. When the bigger-picture perspective looms too large, break things down and take them one step at a time. Simplify.
