In the Stars October 27-November 3, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

Blog delayed due to Northern California Wildfires:

Dear Readers. The wildfires are about an hour north of where I live. I am grateful that my home is not in imminent danger, and also that we have had power during this time when most towns in Sonoma and even Marin Counties have had power shut-offs. Even though I had power, I had no internet connection. Yesterday I drove to Marin County to post my blog, but all of the places where I could have normally accessed the internet were shut down. Marin County was a ghost town, like much of Sonoma County. At last, I finally found a solution, and here it is. My heart goes out to the thousands who have been evacuated, to all who have experiences loss from the prolonged power outages, and to those who have lost their homes. Let’s all pray for rain for California.

The Sun continues to shine in Scorpio, drawing us into its symbolism of transformation and deep change. Take time out of your demanding life to go deep and ponder your challenges and desires. The beginning of the week is the time to wrap up travel plans and contracts before Mercury goes retrograde on Thursday, October 31, for three weeks.

The Moon is void of course on Sunday until 1:20 p.m. PDT when it slips into the deep waters of Scorpio. Mars squares Saturn, another irritating, edgy aspect. Stay focused and patient to glide through the rough edges that you may encounter. The Scorpio Moon joins the Sun at 8:38 p.m. PDT to form a New Moon, and this lunation is exactly opposite to unpredictable Uranus. Surprises will be revealed.

Feelings run deep and passionate as the Moon stirs in Scorpio on Monday. Several benefic aspects invite focused work where magic can take place. With the Sun opposite Uranus, expect a day full of surprises.

Tuesday is pleasant, sweet, and easy, highlighted by lunar conjunctions to Venus and Mercury in the morning. The Moon is void of course from 10:34 a.m. to 2:56 p.m. PDT, when it bounces into sunny Sagittarius. Hold meetings early in the day, and attend to routine tasks during the hours the Moon is void.

Enjoy another upbeat day on Wednesday. We may want to wander off and lose ourselves in an art gallery or a walk in the woods. And why not? Sometimes we just need to take time out and explore the world around us. The world looks sunny and bright.

Mercury makes a station, turning retrograde for the next three weeks on Thursday at 8:42 a.m. PDT. After the Moon makes an optimistic conjunction with Jupiter at 7:29 a.m. PDT, the Moon is void of course all day until 7:38 p.m. PDT. Thursday’s energies make for uncertainty and lack of definition and clarity. Open to the mystery of the day, and be patient with fluctuations and mistakes.

We are upbeat on Friday as we attend to our duties. Venus moves into freedom-loving Sagittarius. Benefic lunar aspects to the Sun and Uranus give vitality and invite us into new spaces.

Saturday is a day for serious hard work. There are numerous aspects, both challenging and benefic, making for an active day.  Lean in and make the most of this day that demands productivity and results.

On Sunday Juno, the asteroid that symbolizes the mate, or partnership, moves into Libra, the sign that symbolizes relationship, for a ten-month stay. The focus is now on partnership and commitment. The Moon is in fixed air sign Aquarius, a day framed for friendship. A Moon-Venus sextile colors the day pleasant and satisfying. A Moon-Uranus square may make for creative, diverse discussion of socio-political ideas among friends.

Ideas abound on Monday, with the inventive Aquarius Moon energized by a trine from Mars. Engage with friends and colleagues, and marvel at the solutions you generate by the end of the day.

4. Expand your knowledge of metaphysics.
5. Write!
6. Visit a religious art exhibit.
7. Explore a philosophy through a book, book-on-tape, or a lecture.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
