My Stars by Madame ZZaj—Romanian Queen of All Queens
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): Try to be satisfied with enough, rather than striving to have it all. The planetary aspects in your chart divide into two rival factions this fall. When one indicates “go ahead,” the other responds with “not so fast,” and then they change sides. It can be frustrating here being no clear path; but stay nimble and it should all end well enough.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): October has you asking yourself, “Why do things the easy way, when I can avoid compromise and create unnecessary obstacles?” This occurs during the New Moon October 27th, and holds true all through November. Your chart is laboring under the influences of Uranus and Saturn compelling you to do things precisely, not easily.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): It may be that you’ve grown accustomed to lower expectations of late, but this fall should find you content with your lot in life, as it currently stands. Your Moon keeps sitting square to Neptune retrograde, which allows for some deep fantasies, but you’re cagey enough to allow them to remain just that.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): October has you marking time, happy to allow others to do your heavy lifting. Come Halloween, you come into your own, motivated by your Moon being sextile mars and conjunct Jupiter. You give back what’s been done on your behalf, big time in November, having the time and the resources to bring aid and comfort to others, being a cornucopia of compassion.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): The lead-up to Yom Kippur has you in a rut, a ditch, blocked from any meaningful progress; Uranus and Saturn, your ruling planets, weigh you down with self-reflection. Uranus keeps you isolated in your own head in November as well. No matter your actual age, welcome back to teenage angst, bad poetry and emo posing (including black nail polish).
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): You get to remain content and comfortable, moving along on whatever currents you decide to travel along. The opinions or actions of others have little effect on your decisions (and ignoring them does no harm). It gets a bit tiring, being so unaffected, around Election Day, when you might want to heed the input of others.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 20): October’s Full Moon has you tripping over your own feet, metaphorically speaking; Uranus, the Sun, and Saturn make any achievements or progress unsatisfying, somehow. Fortunately, the aspects coming together in November paint a much brighter picture for you, as your abilities not only satisfy those around you, but also your most important critic, yourself.
Taurus (Apr 21-May 20): It’s not so much that your mouth gets you into trouble in October; rather, your Moon in opposition to Venus and Mercury have you striking a surprisingly tone-deaf timbre when discussing problems with others (your own as well as theirs). It’s not that you lack empathy: you just can’t express it convincingly. Try again. Mid-November; you might still be misunderstood, but your sincerity will be better conveyed.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): October might feel like a rerun of June for you, as the planetary aspects in your chart are much the same. You can’t resist the temptation to follow your own path, regardless of the cost. Throwing more time and financial resources into getting what you want will only dig the trench deeper, without providing satisfaction.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Unlike a Gemini, you have a better sense of biding your time, in October, waiting for the opportune moment to make your move. Patience is an admirable quality to possess. The better time to proceed with your plans is mid-November; Saturn will impede your progress, but you’ll be able to move things forward, regardless.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22): While you don’t need to write off the next two months as a loss, any forward motion in regards to what you are attempting or what you are hoping for will be glacial, or even retrograde. Your Moon is squaring too many planets for you to efficiently surmount obstacles. It might be best to consider this a time for self-examination.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): Attaining one’s goals, this Autumn, is a priority (oh, you Virgos and your priorities). The drive to achieve is there in your chart, your Moon sitting pretty with Saturn, Uranus and Jupiter. Success comes in doing the work, not talking about it. The latter part of November should provide you with great benefits if you stick to the plan.
