Celestial Compass for October 15-21, 2018

You have Ample Opportunity to Restore and Heal Your Personal Life

Throughout this week intensity grows that is easily countered by Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter all in Scorpio. Strong wills and passionate attitudes are happening although there’s also the magnifying Jupiter giving you equal opportunity to blend and harmonize your deep feelings with ideals of what you want to manifest. Mars is still in Aquarius that has been grist in the midst of much from close encounters to international events. During this year I’ve discussed the impact of the three eclipses earlier this year on the Leo-Aquarius axis and how Mars in Aquarius in a part due its long stay via retrograde impacting the senses, especially grating on nerves to the last degree of tolerance. As Mercury approached the last degree of Libra before entering Scorpio on October 9 there was a boiling point when decisions were made and promptings to take action that were extreme. This was linked to Uranus retrograde at a critical degree in Taurus, the opposite sign to Scorpio. Mentioned then was the trigger point that would happen and those energies are not over. 

Right now it’s important to ground and see where you’re seated within your own world and environment and find where you can secure from a point of peace and solvency. The First Quarter Moon in Capricorn helps this process and offers realization of where you might gain ground through establishing priorities.

Celestial Compass for the Week of October 8-14, 2018
By Sandra Helton

Libra New Moon and Mercury in Scorpio
There are tales to be told…

The week begins with the New Moon in Libra that prods all to find order and balance wherever there’s contention or anything uncomfortable. Focus changes through Mercury in Scorpio until October 31 as it joins Venus and Jupiter. There can be strong feelings, thoughts, and actions where long held desires overflow from within. It’s a proactive week where much can begin rolling forward through understanding of how you are connected to another, others, and the intention of those connections. Very often Libra being so exacting, creates a need for order that comes with numerous thoughts and ideas intensified by the Scorpio vibration. What you want and what you do is on the table to realize consequences and reactions to your decisions and own choice of change.

There may be a need to watch those who seek leverage so that you’re not thrown off course and blindsided by offhanded intentions. This is a time to establish true balance and refine it. 

Personal interests that you would like to manifest and build upon is a strong motivating element so take time to notice those often subtle inclinations that seem to prod at you to get your attention. While many focus on the major part of life, sometime it’s those small things done that create the path needed to move forward. 

Key words for the week:

Solve; restoration; understand; grasp; truth

Affirmation for the week:

"My choice to restore and establish resolve births harmony."

In Truth,
Sandra

Next Week:

The Full Moon is in Taurus and the Sun moves into Scorpio.
