Your horoscope for October 19 to 25, 2017

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Thursday’s new moon in Libra could feel more like a full moon. That’s because it is hot-wired by Uranus in Aries, the “Great Awakener”. This planet is always good for keeping the action on a lively track, often by tossing something unexpected into the mix.

      The past year has been a big one for relationship growth. Mind you, it has drawn extra attention to the imbalances, polarizations, and extremes.

      The new moon in Libra launches the next interactive phase regarding social politics and key relationships, one-on-one and one-to-the-many. Jupiter, a recent visitor to Scorpio, and the sun in Scorpio, starting Saturday, punch up the intensity on all matters to do with sex, money, power, and power plays. (The day Jupiter entered Scorpio, the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke.)

      Feel like you are going nowhere fast? Not anymore. The new moon offers the opportunity for a breakthrough or advance of significance. It aims to shatter the sound barrier that continues to allow you/us to overcompensate, overrationalize, and accept rather than to make haste. As a positive contribution to the new moon, look for the cut-to-the-chase influence of Uranus to get the action going where it adds up the most.

      Jupiter and the sun in Scorpio call for a deeper commitment to that which you desire and deserve. On Saturday, Mars leaves Virgo for Libra, providing yet more opportunity to experience a new way of being in a relationship: with another, with the world, with yourself. Each day through this next week holds lucrative potential. May it set you on a positive upswing.

      March 20 - April 20

      Thursday’s new moon can produce high stress or added excitement. Inspired, provoked, or on the hustle, the days that follow place you at your enterprising best on Saturday. Mars in Libra revs up your social profile and hits Go on contract matters (actual, romantic, karmic). Scorpio month keeps you swamped, consumed, ambitious, and/or fixated. Finances, projects, or a key relationship is slated for major advance.

      April 20 - May 21

      See it for what it’s worth on Thursday. An add-on or switched track could cost time or expense, but overall you stand to gain. If it isn’t what you signed up for, scrap it. Friday/Saturday, watch for clues; go by feel. Want more; need more; sense more? As of Saturday, Mars and the sun on the move give you an extra push.

      May 21 - June 21

      Spontaneity hits the mark well on Thursday. Friday and Saturday keep you well occupied—perhaps preoccupied, too. Time is for putting to good use. Study, research, or a feel-it-out conversation can be productive. Mars enters Libra on Saturday while the sun takes an exit. Want more? Feel you deserve more? First, aim to raise your game. Sunday through Thursday, you’re a natural at it.

      June 21 - July 22

      Thursday is hot-wired. To the plus, you could run across something useful, helpful, profitable, or timely. Play it smart and a game-for-it/go-for-it impulse could set you up for gain. Mars in Libra calls for you to consider options, but don’t second-guess. It’s yes or no, off or on. Speak up; ask for a favour when opportunity presents itself.

      July 22 - August 23

      Quick thinking/quick response makes all the difference Thursday. Uranus blended into the new-moon mix brings greater clarity and/or helps you cut to the chase. Don’t hesitate to eliminate or take on as you see fit. Mars in Libra and the sun in Scorpio set up good timing for a location move or for starting a renovation project (home, personal, or professional).

      August 23 - September 23

      Not a minute to spare, and Thursday piles it up on you. Can you get through it all? You can; you will. Trust yourself more; you’ll pull it out of somewhere! Uranus and Mars supply you with enough steam to go the distance. Friday/Saturday, you’ll have it under good control. The week ahead should prove smooth. Potentials are good/better than average, especially next Wednesday/Thursday.

      September 23 - October 23

      If your birthday falls on Thursday, you’re set up for a dynamic year ahead. For everyone, it is an auspicious time to dive into something new, even if the new moon thrust it on you unexpectedly. You’ll feel another energy surge on Saturday as Mars hits Go in Libra. For the next seven weeks, Mars keeps the momentum and your dynamo self going strong.

      October 23 - November 22

      There’s more than enough to keep you occupied! Thursday’s full moon could help you see your way clear or cut to the chase, perhaps unexpectedly. Mars enters Libra and the sun enters Scorpio on Saturday. Together, they place you at an advantage regarding present circumstances. They also set you up for making the most of it with folks, perhaps with a special someone.

      November 22 - December 21

      Onto a next level, pronto, you are about to make faster progress and inroads. Beyond a special event or social night out, Thursday’s new moon sets up an especially fulfilling or profitable week or two. A key someone could be a major catalyst of change. A hello or goodbye could be in the mix. Friday/Saturday, feel it out. Sunday onward, get it going.

      December 21 - January 20

      It’s renewal time. That can mean a sit-down or cash-in with the bank, another, or yourself. Thursday’s new moon sets a lucrative backdrop for a new goal/contract to begin (karmic or actual). It also sparks a new appreciation for what it takes and a recommitment to getting yourself there. Self-created is the best kind of reward.

      January 20 - February 18

      Now is not the time to hesitate or question but to go for it with the best you can give. In addition to something special to attend or enjoy, Thursday’s new moon favours all new adventures, especially those that speak through/to the heart, expand the mind, move the body, or add bulk to the wallet.

      February 18 - March 20

      A relationship upgrade, financial or intimate, is favoured by Thursday’s fast-track new moon. Whether sudden or already in the works, that could mean a parting of ways to make way for the new. Either way, you stand to gain. Whether in pursuit of a prize or facing a battle, Mars in Libra provides your call to action.
