Your horoscope for October 10 to 16, 2019

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend is ideal for taking a short time out. Even so, don’t expect to find yourself sitting still, at least not for long! Sunday delivers a full moon in Aries.

      Venus in Scorpio hits full tilt with Uranus on Saturday. It can be a good cash-in day for retailers and entertainment providers, and also good for spontaneous choices. An impulse purchase or scratch-and-win could make your day. Venus/Uranus can create an added spark in the social or sexy department. (Thinking about surprising your lover? Good idea.) Saturday night and the first half of Sunday could dish up the best of the weekend.

      On the other hand, Venus/Uranus can make for an edgy or stressful Saturday. Emotional undercurrents (trust issues, resentments, et cetera) can be difficult to keep under wraps. If that is the case for you, know that the full moon, well aligned with Jupiter for the first half of Sunday, sets an opportunity backdrop for emotional honesty. You stand to gain when you face it head-on.

      Pluto in Capricorn adds a pressure ceiling to the full moon. There’s an added awareness of how little time is left and how important it is not to waste a minute of it. The score, the priority, and the direction forward change in some no-turning-back (and karmic) way. Watch for significant action on the world stage regarding our upcoming election and politics here at home, too. Despite accompaniment from several softening transits, the full moon could trigger anger, aggression, or violence. First comes frustration, then release.

      To the plus, Mercury in favour to Saturn on Sunday and Neptune on Tuesday suggests we can hold a productive dialogue. We’ll see a naturally unfolding and timely progression over the week ahead.

      March 20 - April 20

      Whether you have something special planned or not for the long weekend, the stars have signed you up for added excitement. Saturday can trigger a fresh incentive, a change of heart, an impulse purchase, added expense, or something spur-of-the-moment. One way or another, the full moon sets you up to regain control. Sunday/Monday, an important corner is turned. Tuesday runs smooth.

      April 20 - May 21

      Saturday/Sunday, something strikes a chord or goes snap. To the plus, Venus/Uranus lets you off the hook and/or buys you well-deserved time off. The transit stimulates creativity, a great find, or something entertaining. Sunday’s full moon could produce a flare-up or could break the ice or silence and thrust or force you into action. Monday, you’ll turn a corner. Tuesday diffuses it, brings ease.

      May 21 - June 21

      The long weekend is ideally timed for a break from the work, although if you are hosting the Thanksgiving to-do, you might not get much of a reprieve. A change of pace is as good as a rest. Saturday can dish up something fun or extra. Sunday/Monday, the full moon in Aries can push the refresh or reset button. Tuesday, ease into it.

      June 21 - July 22

      Cut loose as best you can this weekend. Even so, with Venus/Uranus setting off sparks and the full moon putting you under added pressure, you could face more than you bargained for. Something or someone can provoke you, speed up the process or the reality. Monday/Tuesday produces a change of heart, mind, or momentum. Let it go; shift gear; move on.

      July 22 - August 23

      Some things can wait; some can’t. Ditch the extras and aim for the top of your list this weekend. A scouting mission could be quite productive. A take-a-break or getaway weekend is also well deserved. Monday brings a noticeable shift of attention or momentum. Back-to-work Tuesday is smooth-running. Simple and straightforward is the best way to play it.

      August 23 - September 23

      Replenish; refresh. Holding court over the long weekend, the Aries full moon is good for a battery recharge. Jettisoning you past a long-standing roadblock regarding heart, wallet, or confidence level, it sets you up for a timely breakthrough. Back-to-work Tuesday fits like a glove. Your communication flow is good. One thing leads to another; the week ahead keeps you on a productive roll.

      September 23 - October 23

      Saturday is good for a social, activity, or energy pick-me-up. You’ll get it off the ground, move to higher ground, or get it off your chest this long weekend, perhaps unexpectedly. Shut down, closed off, or held back no longer, the full moon in Aries (at peak on Sunday but effective through Monday) fast-tracks you, it, or them. The past is quickly surpassed.

      October 23 - November 22

      Take a break! Put your needs and personal interests first this weekend. Even so, watch for the phone to ring or for a fresh burst of energy to grab hold of you. Saturday through Monday, Venus/Uranus and the full moon in Aries thrust you into the thick of it. To the plus, you can gain a jump-start on something that needs fixing.

      November 22 - December 21

      One way or another, it’s good to get the body moving this weekend. The heart also gets a good pump-up from the full moon in Aries. Never a dull moment, Friday through Sunday keeps you/keeps it going strong. Monday is well set for switching gears and for staying a step ahead. Tuesday to Thursday, the stars make for easy navigating.

      December 21 - January 20

      Something spontaneous or outside of the usual hits the spot, especially Saturday. Sunday/Monday, there’s something to work through. Keep focused on the endgame. What might initially seem hard to get past or accomplish will take on a life of its own. Once you’ve cracked the code, you’re onto a fast track. Tuesday runs easily and naturally.

      January 20 - February 18

      Cut yourself extra slack this weekend. Try something or someone new on for size. While Venus/Uranus is good for a fresh infusion, it can also hit a trigger or a nerve. If tension builds or something unexpected crops up, face it head-on; don’t skirt around it. Seize the opportunity and get it out of the way.

      February 18 - March 20

      Whether you celebrate Thanks­giving or spend your personal time elsewise, you are a busy one this long weekend. Sunday/Monday, the full moon can take the brakes off something that has been long in the works. You’ll make faster progress from here. Tuesday, inspiration, creative flow, and opportunity are at peak. Mercury/Neptune sets you up for ease and gain.
