My Stars: October-November 2017

Libra sign

Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): Venus and Mars, both being conjunct your Moon, should bolster your sense of being where you should be, and feeling comfortable in your own skin. Whatever you turn your hand to this season, should go according to plan (your plan). How we envy your good fortune.

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): The new Moon October 19 finds you driven, practically obsessed in your single-minded pursuit of what it takes to make things right. This makes it easy to gloss over small annoyances. The payoff comes with the Scorpio Moon mid-November, which should bring to you affection, rather than just admiration.


Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): Neptune, while not your ruling planet, has a profound effect on you, your Moon sitting square to it, and it still being retrograde. You are sure of your actions, but your reasons are opaque. If you can stand working on instinct rather than intellect, this season should be a bountiful one.


Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): This should prove another successful season for you, particularly after the Sun moves into Scorpio October 23. Other than a small log jam set up by mars being square your Moon, this is a good time to set plans in motion and pursue them. New business endeavors are particularly favored, if they have a “twist.”


Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): The days leading up to Halloween seem to have you putting your foot wrong. With your Moon squaring almost all the planets (Mars and Venus excepted), you will tend towards impulsive actions, spurred on by great passions, certainly, but these will bring you little credit. You continue to stumble through November, and Thanksgiving could be explosive.


Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): With your Moon conjunct (and transiting) Neptune, your ruling planet, both October and November should support an explosion of creative output for you, so much so that your social life may suffer. Sometimes, solitude is necessary to produce the best work. I say, go for it.


Aries (Mar21-Apr20): The Full (Harvest) Moon October 3rd finds you out of sorts, and dissatisfied with your circumstances, I’m afraid that this continues through November, as your Moon settles into adverse aspects to most all the planets. Petty annoyances are magnified, and you are not a joy to be around. If you have sick days or vacation time, take it, please.


Taurus (Apr 21-May20): Duty, whether real or self-assumed, appears to lead you further and further away from the things you wish to do, and people you wish to see. Even the simplest plans for social interactions become ridiculously complex. It seems you are going away before you even arrive. Try to limit your attachment to your many obligations.


Gemini (May 21-June 21): The beginning of October finds you seeking affection or approval for all the right reasons, your Moon being trine Venus and Mars, while conjunct Mercury, your ruling planet, which keeps your intentions balanced. Unfortunately, your desires are focused on the less than deserving. Are you wasting your time? It all depends on how willing you are to devote yourself to so little satisfaction.


Cancer (June 22-July 22): This Autumn starts with frustration, but sorts itself out as we go along. October might feel like you are marking time, as Mars squares Saturn for you, thwarting any progress. New avenues open up for you around Election Day, if you can spot them. They will be invisible to others, but only challenging for you to discover.


Leo (July 23-Aug 22): Your Moon keeps squaring Jupiter; if not independently wealthy, you should stop trying to spend your way to happiness. But why listen to reason? Your Moon, in November, being square Uranus retrograde, Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun, makes you keep your own counsel and accept no outside input.


Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): October finds you in the ideal position to challenge authority; fortune smiles on your audacity and relentless nit picking. With Jupiter and Saturn both favorably aspected in your chart, you seem to be the one to set the scoundrels packing, if you dare or desire to.
