Horoscopes for the Week of October 28-November 4, 2012
What a weekend we had here in Canada! With 7 major astrological events (as explained in last week's horoscope you can still consult in the "archive" section) in preparation for the Full Moon on Taurus happening today, Monday, October 29 at 12:43 PM EST, an earthquake in British Columbia triggering a Tsunami alert and the entire East Coast and Central Canada preparing for the arrival of the mammoth hurricane, we surely had our plates full of concerns and possibly very little time for horoscopes.
However, let's get started with a sneak peek into what the stars have in store for us mortals this week.
Feisty Mercury moves into fiery Sagittarius on October 29, signaling an ideal time to dream big and put your plans together. The more stars you aim for right now, the better your chances will be that you'll hit at least one!
Also on October 29, the full Moon in Taurus rises opposite the Scorpio Sun, bringing down the feverish tempo and leaving you struggling to decide between following your excited feelings and applying a more practical train of thought.
Finally, October 30 sees action between the Sun and Pluto, when a 60-degree alignment between the two indicates that you've successfully manoeuvered through these days of spirited cosmic activity. Now life will feel that much easier!
Of course, this rundown only scratches the surface of what's to come!
For a more complete and personalized account on where life is heading, you can always book an appointment for a full consultation with me:)
Until then, as I usually say, live, love and learn.
These are my "two cents" for all signs this week.
Monday’s full moon in Taurus could bring a big money moment your way as the Moon lights up your second house of financial foundations, bringing your efforts over the past six months to a bountiful fruition. If you’ve been putting in the sweat and planning necessary, you could finally hit the jackpot, or at the very least, get a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel. A new revenue stream could flow in, which may come in the form of a job offer, steady client, or sale of one of your original inventions. If you’ve been struggling to make ends meet or felt tight and worried, this full moon could unlock the stream of prosperity and ease you've been waiting for. With this new found freedom, it is high time to simplify and scale back: that’s the message of this full moon. There’s a major difference between luxury and excess, Aries, and it’s possible that you’ve been known to indulge in too much of a good thing at times. The two weeks following a full moon are the time meant for taking action. Dive into the details of number crunching, job hunting (if necessary), or making your big move. You might negotiate an installment plan or settlement to pay off a bill that’s a little too big to handle in one lump sum. This full moon also illuminates your eating habits. With the cooling weather, those “salad days” may become less appealing as your body switches to "comfort mode" foods. Adjust to your body's needs.
Monday’s full moon in Taurus invites you to be your boldest, bravest self you have been in ages. You only get one full moon in your sign each year, so you’ll want to maximize its power. It’s a bit like having a cosmic spotlight thrown directly on you, or a new Independence Day. What have you been dying to share with the world? Expressing yourself, flaunting your talents, and proudly presenting an original idea is just what this full moon has on order. If you’ve been working towards a major life change over the past six months, your efforts could finally come to fruition. This could be major for many Bulls; some of you may even relocate to get a fresh start in greener pastures. The two weeks following a full moon are a manifestation power period. A brilliant vision for what’s next could strike on Monday under this lunar light. Get into action and get the project rolling along, as the coming two weeks will provide some added wind beneath your wings. One word of caution, though: do not count much on the help of others, this is your "solo" act and you can do it.
This Monday, a full moon in your twelfth house gives you permission to feel, deal, and heal. It’s natural to experience both joy and sadness in the face of a change. Should tears come to your eyes more often than not this Monday, they may be tears of happiness or a sentimental mixture of enthusiasm and melancholic longing. Honour those feelings instead of brushing them aside. You might even do a ritual on Monday night to release what’s moving out of your life. Light a commemorative candle, write a farewell letter (and burn it ceremoniously without sending it), devote the evening to healing by picking up flowers and a fabulous dinner, soaking in the tub, and writing in your journal. The sooner you feel the emotions, the sooner they’ll move through you so that you can move on. This full moon may bring in a mentor figure or a powerful ally who can help you open doors that were previously closed. If someone leaves a starring role in your life this week, take heart. A space is being cleared for new energy to come in, although you may have to sit with the empty space for a couple weeks. This full moon could inspire you to begin, or recommit to, a yoga or meditation practice. Add that soulful dimension back into your life if it’s been missing.
You’ll be toasting a shared victory this week, thanks to Monday’s full moon in your teamwork zone. A collaborative venture you’ve been part of for the past six months could reach to an exciting milestone or culmination. After the victory celebration, take a moment to reflect. Is there further for you to go with this crew or have you reached the limit of what you’re here to do together? Don’t force yourself to continue on out of loyalty, not if it means clipping your own wings while you wait for others to learn how to fly. There’s no need to panic about moving on if that’s what your heart is calling for. This full moon could bring an influx of new friends, raising your popularity to new heights. The coming two weeks will be an exciting time for your social life as you find yourself gelling with new groups of people. Get out and network if your contact database needs an infusion of new people. Be ready and enjoy public attention coming your way as the full moon falls in your eleventh house of TV and technology.
Monday’s new moon brings an epic career triumph your way. You’ve been working hard towards this goal over the past six months, Leo. This week you could finally hit pay dirt or get your long-overdue recognition. For some Leos this could mean a big promotion, or even branching out on your own. If you’re feeling stuck in a thankless job, the full moon will prompt a shift. Find gratitude for what it offers (a steady paycheck for example) or begin the process of moving on. You might contact an executive recruiter for help with this mission instead of starting from the classified listings. The two weeks following a full moon are a powerful manifestation period and opportunity may knock during this time. Is there a gap in your skill set? Sign up for a workshop or training seminar that helps you bridge the divide and step into a new role with confidence. A few sessions with a career coach wouldn’t hurt either. Don’t wait for people to discover you, Leo. If you have a talent to offer the world, this full moon encourages you to shamelessly self-promote, without becoming obnoxious:)
Monday’s full moon in Taurus and your capricious ninth house gives you a bit of the gambler’s instinct. You are generally the type who plays it safe, but this full moon in nudging you out of the comfort zone. Don’t waste time stuck in analysis paralysis if a stellar opportunity comes your way early in the week. While you’re busy looking the gift horse in the mouth, the offer will have galloped away like a prize-winning steed. Instead, grab the reins, hold tight and let yourself be swept in a new direction. You’ve likely been working hard to pave the way for this situation to manifest. Full moons are the culmination point of new moon seeds that were planted six months prior. Your efforts of the past half year are finally set to pay off, especially with regards to entrepreneurial ventures, studying and teaching, or global relations. You may have to travel this week in order to finalize a deal. Even if you stay put, make an added effort to connect with people in other parts of the world. They are your lucky coins for the next two weeks. This full moon doses you with truth serum, and you can’t help but call it like you see it. Be warned, you have been known to master poorly the "truth telling" methods! Remain considerate while stating your needs, wants and opinions. Make sure they are asked for...
Monday’s full moon in Taurus brings a passionate surge of energy to your seductive eighth house. Chemistry will be off the charts early in the week, and could erupt in ...well, more. Don’t ignore those unspoken cues and clues. People’s body language is more telling than their words this week—yours included. Notice your own posture when you’re in the presence of others. Are you twirling your hair or leaning forward (signs of attraction and interest)? There might just be a crush you didn’t realize you had. Casual connections could become full-on commitments under the spell of this full moon. Your own urge to merge intensifies now and you might even experience a rare bout of jealousy or possessiveness. Should your Libran scales tip in the jealousy direction, make a point to talk to a neutral third party about your feelings. Underneath the envy is an unexpressed desire. When you tap into that, you’ll be able to ask for what you want without coming across like a ranting lunatic. Prioritize activities that help you get in tune with your sensuality and your body. Go dancing, get a massage, soak in a tub of bath salts, dress in fabrics that feel great against your skin. You need to be grounded in your own body before you can share the love with another. For some Libras, this might involve getting a few extra hours of sleep each night in the name of relaxing into a receptive state. The full moon could also bring a big money moment. The eighth house rules larger chunks of cash like earnings from investments, royalties, tax returns, inheritances and commissions. If you’ve had property on the market, this full moon will bring a good Buyer your way and the finalizing of a deal shortly after. Good things, don`t you thinkÉ
Monday’s full moon in Taurus ignites a flurry of partnership offers. This full moon falls in your seventh house of commitment, so these aren’t fleeting ideas or missed connections. People want to pair up with you for the long haul now, and who could blame them? In addition to your keen and intuitive sensibilities, you can be counted on to work hard when you want to achieve a goal. So the message of this moon is to be mindful of what you say yes to, as once you’re in, you’re in. Full moons are harvest times for seeds that were planted six months prior. A relationship that’s been brewing over the past half year could become “officially official.” Give the lone wolf self-image a rest and open yourself up to the idea of being half of a dynamic duo again. If you’re in a relationship, this full moon could bring a milestone moment or a critical juncture. Something’s gotta shift if you want to maintain your enthusiasm for the union. A new way to co-create could emerge, so make sure you have quality time in your schedule for your sweetie so that the two of you can connect on a soulful level. Ideally, this would be done face-to-face, but an extended Skype session might have to do for traveling Scorpios. Is there a legal matter that needs to be hashed out? The seventh house rules matters of justice so if you’re stuck at a standstill in a negotiation, hiring a lawyer might help expedite the solution. Time to clear the path for much better things to come.
Monday’s full moon in Taurus and your sixth house of health sounds the call for self-care. This is not about obsessing over that extra serving of food you ate or trying to mould your Sagittarius body into some unrealistic shape. Rather, Archer, it’s about feeling comfortable in your own skin, fueling yourself with foods that energize you instead of deplete you, and moving your body so you are appreciating all that it is here to do. Don’t allow yourself to slip into the seasonal sedentary groove. Find a form of exercise that buoys your spirit and warms you from the inside out like hot yoga, free-form dance. Is it time for your annual checkup? If you’re not loving your doctor, look around for a new one; ask friends for references. Getting medical care doesn’t have to be a form of torture. This is also a great week to start loading up on your seasonal “preventative medicine” options like Vitamins C & D, adequate sleep, massage, acupuncture, and so on. The sixth house also rules your daily work, so this full moon could bring some developments in the professional arena. Freelancing Sagittarians could lock in a steady client; Archers working 9-5 could find yourselves taking a step up the ladder to a more prominent position. If you’ve been “so over it” with regards to a particular job or aspect of your work, this full moon may herald a long-overdue change. It can be tough to let go of a steady stream of cash but don’t stay locked in the golden handcuffs. Create the space for something new and rewarding. You only have one life to live so why spend the majority of your waking hours doing something you hate?
Monday’s full moon in Taurus lights up your fifth house of celebration, romance and glamour. Happiness, some would argue, is your birthright. The part of you that is addicted to struggle may disagree, but this week, ponder the notion that life can actually be enjoyable AND easy…at least every now and again. Devote the week to the pursuit of pleasure. This hedonistic turn might actually make you more productive, not less so. When you’re enjoying what you’re doing, or have a pleasant memory to linger on, you go through your days with a brighter spirit. Less dwelling on drama means fewer distractions and slowdowns. Open your heart, Capricorn. This full moon awakens your romantic spirit and brings some satisfaction for your love jones. The two weeks following a full moon are a powerful manifestation period. Pay attention to the people who come into your orbit now, as a flirty connection could quickly head into soulmate terrain. A crushable situation that’s been budding for the past six months could erupt in an obvious (and public) display of affection. In a relationship? This heart-healing full moon helps restore the love between you and your partner.
Home and family demand your attention this week, so give them an extra dose of love. With Monday’s full moon in Taurus lighting up your domestic sector, you’ll be feeling the tug of those apron strings yourself. Are there relatives (or friends who feel like family) you’ve been out of touch with? Get some facetime in early in the week, even if the miles between you require ...skype. A home-based project could finally wrap up, one that you’ve been working on since the corresponding new moon six months ago. The coming two weeks are a power period for finishing these domestic missions. Get that painting job the finishing touches it needs, fix the odd repairs you`ve been meanign to tackle, add colour to your walls, give away old clothes boxes, clear the space for the new, the exciting and a sense of freedom to come your way. If you’re in the market for a new home, the full moon could bring the perfect listing, or assist you with the sale of your property. This full moon also beams its light on your female friendships. Hey soul sister—you could find your kindred spirits among the girl-powered masses. In this instance, you’ll prefer a tight-knit crew where you can exchange ideas, find comfort and support, and really be known. Tension with one woman in your life could reach a boiling point this week. You’ve been sweeping her actions under the rug, but you can no longer ignore them. Watch out for your lightning bolt temper, Aquarius. You’re cool and understanding most of the time but when you blow up, it ain’t pretty. Keep your anger in check but tell your dose of truth to whoever needs it.
This week, you’re dreaming of distant lands. ...again! That’s because the sun is cruising into Scorpio and your distant dreams of travel ninth house. While you might be too busy to really escape, try to squeeze in a short trip over the next month’s time. Whether you’re travelling for business, pleasure or both, there’s opportunity to be found beyond city limits. Expand your search radius when researching collaborators, clients, even dating options. The people you click with could be further from home base than you expect this week. One word of warning though: heavyweight Saturn is also in Scorpio, making it harder than usual to be your spontaneous self. This week's Full Moon in Taurus lights up your third house of everyday occurences, placing the spotlight on organizing your days for added efficiency, planning, clearing the path for a more efficient you for what will soon transpire in your life. A new job perhaps? A long awaited family visit? You will soon get busy, Pisces and add more responsibility to your everyday landscape. Be prepared! If you’ve toyed with the idea of being in business for yourself, now’s the time to get serious. Pisces who already own their own business will see a slow but steady progress this week and talks of expansion will be on the table.
These are not times for "doing" but for "preparing the grounds" for your next phase in life, love and work.
Until next week, live, love and learn!
