Horoscope for the Week: October 1, 2021

Horoscope for the Week:  October 1, 2021

Tip of the Week:

October begins with the Moon in its last quarter, Mercury is retrograde and Pluto is the planet of highest degree. Altogether, this illustrates some of the complexities of our times. Harmony-oriented Venus will assume the position of highest degree planet by the 2nd but due to its  transit  through Scorpio,  the intensity and intrigue will  not only not be abated, it will be exacerbated. Venus will hold this position until after the New Moon occurring at 13 Libra which will on October 6. Thus, the power plays from authorities continue. By October 7,  Venus will yield the lead back to Pluto and it will  hold it until  the 18th when the sun takes the lead, holding it for just shy of a week, just long enough to pass it on to Mars. What all this implies is that we can expect governments to play hard ball at a whole new level well into October before being countered by an ardent push back from rebellious factions.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Mercury retrograde could have the effect of increasing your charm. The main issue is that it could lead to saying what you think others want to hear. This step away from your usual assertiveness could win approval, but prove costly. Meanwhile, your sights are set on the future and in your heart of hearts you want to fight the good fight.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

A busy time working on important changes, both within and without, are underway. You are willing to do your part, but you also want help. The workload is heavier than usual, but you feel   charged to overcome obstacles. Your mood is passionate and determined but your direction may be more like a zigzag than a straight line.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Finding reason to play and have fun is inspiring, yet requires extra effort. Looking at the world stage, you may feel nervous. Guided by the appreciation that there is power in numbers, you are seeking associations you believe in and feel you can reply on. You are happy to feel things out for now but you will be more committed soon.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Focusing to create more beauty and flow close to home continues. This process includes some measure of design. You may also feel the need for change which could amount to be more than anticipated. For better or worse, returns for past choices and actions are part of the plot. Now it is time to set a new future direction.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Many new thoughts, perspectives are flowing through your mind.  By now, you are already taking action on these and the momentum is likely to build steadily over the coming weeks. With your social horizons undergoing a steady rate of expansion, the time is right to commit to steady growth and to invest as necessary.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Building upon new foundations for the sake of realizing dreams is a central theme now. Dealing with ongoing uncertainties appears to be woven into the plot. Positively, you are turning the stresses that these delays and misses produce into spiritual victories, which is their destined purpose. Faithful, patient perseverance will pay off.

 Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are in a pioneering mood. Your focus is sharp and your pace is assertive and determined.  As much as you recognize the need to be patient, doing so will prove extra challenging. The issue with this is that you may be thinking more about what you believe and listening less to alternate viewpoints. Financial concerns and considerations are featured.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

A busy time behind the scenes continues. Ironically, if you are confronting inner issues head on you will likely feel emboldened and energized. Yet, if you are trying to escape, you may find yourself feeling extra tired. Meanwhile, while you feel the desire to express yourself doing so may seem extra complicated. So, do the inner work.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your sense of individuality is in full throttle. This includes themes of fairness, justice, equality, freedom and democracy. To this end, you are willing to fight for just causes.  On the downside, you may feel scattered and overwhelmed with options and objectives leaving you unsure where to begin. Reaching out to exchange ideas is a likely choice.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Getting the recognition and attention you feel you want and deserve continues. Your sights are set on the future and you know that you need to both fortify your foundation and clear away everything that has become unnecessary. What is clear is that you need allies to fulfill your ambitions and this may include financial support.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Over the course of 2021 you have really begun to see the big picture more clearly. Consequently, some of your values and priorities have changed measurably. Now, you are looking for the tools, resources, knowledge and key players you need to advance to the next step. Maintaining a philosophical perspective on things all the whole feels important.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

A prior of change and transformation continues. Your ambitions are running strong all the while and you feel determined to take action that leads you to greater returns. This process will continue throughout the month.  Patient determination and both willingness to change and acceptance that it is required will support your process.
