Your horoscope for October 3 to 9, 2013
T hursday’s sun/Uranus opposition puts a stimulus package where it’s too obvious to ignore. From one extreme to another, it infuses new life into present circumstances. Watch for a striking momentum shift or sharp corner turned.
It’s time to form a new alliance—with your social world, your material world, and your own soul. Friday’s new moon in Libra prompts a new level of cooperation and co-creation. Usually, a new moon is a quiet energy and can go unnoticed, but this one involves Uranus and Pluto, so expect to advance through something major regarding relationships, investments, and finances.
Sunday’s Scorpio moon forms productive alignments with Mercury and Saturn. Also on Sunday, Mercury and Pluto are in a creative dialogue, offering a good day to have the talk, hash it out, or get on with the project.
Trekking into Sagittarius mid-morning on Monday, Venus keeps the need, hunt, sport, desire, or opportunity growing through November 4.
On Tuesday, Mercury and Saturn conjoin in Scorpio. They’ll align two more times: on October 29 and November 25. Mercury/Saturn is both a culminating and a crystallizing influence for all serious personal and business-related matters. Navigating through a two-month process, they’ll put the reality check into sharper focus and define the priority base line in no uncertain terms. Mercury/Saturn will also help you to get better focused and informed, get down to task, and devise a more workable strategy.

The end of the workweek can move you past a block, a dilemma, or an enmeshment issue. Once that happens, you’ll pick up speed.
