Your Weekly Horoscope for Oct. 17-23, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury in Libra is inconjunct Jupiter at 25 degrees of Pisces at 7:42 pm Sunday
, Oct. 17. These are both mental planets; Mercury rules practical everyday how-to stuff, while Jove rules overall principles and philosophy. So an inconjunct says to me that what we learn due to research, or to getting a different philosophical understanding, can force us to revise everyday protocols. While Libra is a very mental, rational sign, it could benefit from taking a larger view (both Pisces and Jupiter).

Monday will be mentally tricky when Mercury in Libra trines Neptune at 26 degrees of Aquarius at 8:03 am. It can bring drivers who make wrong turns, get lost, or get stuck in traffic. But it can also bring inspiration from anywhere, from out of the blue, so pay attention to idel thoughts; they might be truer to reality than you could imagine.

Mercury in Libra is inconjunct Uranus at 27 degrees of Pisces at 6 am sharp on Tuesday. Sextiles and trines are great for buying mechanical and electronic items, but this aspect favors altering an item to suit your comfort or needs. Like, unlocking an i-phone. Or adding a larger memory capacity or altering software to do your job.

Pluto is conjunct the asteroid Ceres at 8:05 pm Tuesday at 3 degrees Capricorn. Pay attention to farm reports this week, regarding actual harvests or killing frosts. Will farmers be able to complete harvesting or not before the rest of the crop rots in the field?
Mercury enters Scorpio at 5:19 pm Wednesday. Mercury placed here is the real detective of the zodiac, delving deep into the mysteries of life and death. He also likes making macabre jokes – very apropos for the upcoming Halloween holiday. If someone makes a good mot, just laugh it off (after the delicious tingle of fear runs down your back).
Mars in Scorpio trines Jupiter at 24 degrees of Pisces at 9:42 pm Wednesday. Great opportunities for moderate risk with good rewards. Good for great sporting events. Mars in Scorpio is extremely determined to achieve its own goals, and is willing to do or die. Jupiter in Pisces, though, is just as ready to applaud a great play by the opponent, or treat everyone to pizza after the game's over.

Mars in Scorpio square Neptune in Aquarius, at 11:35 am Friday, can sap the energy of anybody. Mars-Neptune combos make one prone to mystery ailments and viruses, or one may just push oneself way too far and wind up in the hospital. Baby yourself, baby, and get your vitamins and tummy mint tea.
The Sun enters the serious fixed water sign of Scorpio at 8:35 am Saturday. The Sun is coming off an inconjunct to Uranus on Wednesday night, and after the ingress, will sextile Pluto (Scorpio's ruler) in Capricorn on Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 26. Next it conjoins Venus on Thursday evening. Sun-Uranus can bring unusual insights and flashes of brilliance, though you may not be comfortable with the changes to your life due to those insights. Sun-Pluto is all about evolution, either personal or species-wide. You as an individual (Sun) evolve (Pluto) throughout your life or stagnate in muddy backwaters.

Looking ahead, Mercury joins a retrograde Venus at 7 degrees of Scorpio on Monday, Oct. 25 (9:17 am). Thisis another marker of economic activity and the business cycle. Venus and Mercury together show that shoppers (and I am including buyers of stock shares) agree on a price. However, I think the fact that Venus is retrograde means that she is buying more of those that are marked down, possibly distressed merchandise. Scorpio is a great one for buying overstocks and closeouts (in other words, distressed merchandise), and reselling for a profit.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also the sign of their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. Also note: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect. Times given are in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – The Moon is in Aries from 11:23 am Wednesday till Friday night. The Moon squares Pluto and Ceres Wednesday night; you may be challenged to try a new, healthy food or style of eating, but please, at least try it once. The Sun in Libra, your opposite sign, is inconjunct Uranus in Pisces; your partner/spouse may be jarred by a glimpse of the seamy side of life a bit too close to home; reassure her that you will always be there for her no matter what. The Moon is also inconjunct Venue Thursday morn; be careful what you say to your S.O. Because she is wondering whether there is any future for the two of you. A Moon-Saturn opposition the same morning gives her fears that your relationship may draw to a close.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 10:30 pm Friday thru the weekend. A Moon-Pluto trine early Saturday may bring news of new addition to the clan. Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Ceres in compatible Capricorn; perhaps your partner presents you with a cookbook with a dozen delights . Keep the lines of communication wide open under a a Moon-Mercury opposition Saturday morning; words do have the power to hurt or heal so choose your words carefully. Ditto for the afternoon's Moon-Venus opposition; put a bit of sugar on those words and watch your partner eat them up. An inconjunct from Moon to Saturn that night makes you more willing to let go of things that are weighing you down. Let them go, let yourself grow.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The earlier part of the week is definitely going to be more comfortable for you, just because Mercury is in compatible air sign Libra. When your ruler Mercury enters Scorpio on Wednesday afternoon, you are both lost yet fascinated. Scorpio's intensity and mystery in general pique your interest. Sometimes getting a Scorpio to open up to you is your favorite game. Practice being silent for oh, at least five minutes a day, Gem, to start to understand that Scorpio boy. Five minutes is about all you can handle of that.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Sun and Mercury enter Scorpio, your solar fifth house, this week. Events pick up in regards to children, creativity, or romance. Just use some caution due to Mars' presence in Scorpio also, squaring Neptune. Some new beaux may be misrepresenting themselves to impress you. Great for taking a class in painting or other arts, tho. Mars trines Jupiter in water signs on Wednesday night; calculated gambles can pay off, altho we never recommend risking your rent money. But Cancer is more likely to venture into a mom-and-pop business, and this may be a good time to look into current SBA programs. They've cut some fees under Obama, and made it a bit easier to get started.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars in Scorpio squares Neptune in Aquarius midday Friday, affecting your partner and family. Family members may come down with a minor virus, etc. so provide support (meds, chicken soup) and make everyone get some proper sleep. In fact, a lot starts happening in your solar fourth house of home and family, mainly due to the ingress of Sun and Mercury into Scorpio there. Hmmm, you are not always happy with Scorpio's intrigue, but you do appreciate his sense of drama. Family members may finally break some news to you that they have been tiptoeing about for weeks. Ach, why didn't they tell me earlier?, you groan. But that's because they knew you'd be upset.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Pluto conjunct Ceres on Tuesday evening in Capricorn puts your attention on finishing the harvest of your veggie garden before the first killing frost. You may find that canning is an art form with you, as you carefully arrange each string bean or carrot to make the best display. Mercury enters Scorpio this week, and enters your solar third house, its natural home. Communications pick up, but in a subtle way. You may be hinted to rather than told outright about something, so keep your ears and head open. Your partner may come into a bit of luck on Wednesday night, under a Jupiter aspect. Hope you've been treating him/her very very nicely.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Mercury in Libra is inconjunct Jupiter in Pisces on Sunday night. These mental planets mesh better when both are in air or fire signs; here, one is forced to consider changing how one does things based on what you have learned how to do. Remember you are responsible for what you know, both when to use it and when not to use it. Weigh the possible results and act accordingly, especially in dealing with family members. This aspect is followed by Sun inconjunct Jupiter mid-morning Monday; here, how you say and do things affect how others respond to you. Hey, you are not a blank slate, and so your personal touch is so important that day.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Mars and Venus are already in your sign, soon followed by Mercury on Wednesday and the Sun on Saturday. Mmm, you will be on the minds of many in the weeks ahead, so look sharp and marshal your facts and figs together. You never know when you will meet a new friend or lover. Mars squares Neptune in Aquarius midday Friday; best to postpone family decisions till a more favorable time because you are getting wool pulled over your eyes right now. Also there is some threat of illness (just a minor virus) so guard your health. Best days may be Sun. to mid-Wed. with Moon in compatible Pisces. You lighten up when playing games or with children.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Best days this week have Moon in compatible Aries Wed-Fri. You too, look forward to working with children or teaching them new games (new to them) from your youth. The Moon-Venus opposition in your solar sixth and twelfth houses prompts you to visit Mom or a girlfriend in the hospital. Be the wonderfully supportive person you are, and assure the patient that they will be up and running again in no time. Make 'em laugh, make 'em laugh. Lots going on behind the scenes as Sun and Mercury enter Scorpio, your solar twelfth house. This also repeats theme of Moon-Venus opposition.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Tuesday may see a new office communications or voicemail system installed, under the Mercury-Uranus transit. Pluto is conjunct the asteroid Ceres at 8:05 pm Tuesday at 3 degrees Capricorn; you get involved in putting up food for the winter. Cappy is a very self-reliant sign, and is willing to do without if he cannot do it himself. Sun and Mercury enter Scorpio this week, in your solar eleventh house of friends. Your Scorpio friends are a bit more talkative, or maybe you get better at drawing them out. But anyway, you learn lots from these quiet types.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The week begins with the Moon in Aquarius, until Sunday night. A Moon-Mars square often prompts haste, followed by the need to do it over. Check first what your 'customer' wants. The Moon trines the Sun and then Mercury in late morning. Harmony is supported and results from clear and objective speech. Avoid blame games etc. and you should do OK today. A Moon-Neptune conjunction in the afternoon favors a movie matinee. Other than that, I'd say let someone else drive and handle the money, because Neptune does not pay attention to details.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 10:52 pm Sunday till midday Wednesday. The Moon sextiles Pluto and Ceres very early Monday; you might stay up late cooking a batch of something for the kids' lunches, but then again you might enjoy an exotic restaurant with your special someone.
A Moon-Venus trine Monday night favors a date or just visiting with a woman friend or relative. The Moon trines Mars Tuesday night before the Moon conjoins Jupiter. A moderate risk can bring big rewards, but make sure you know what you are doing. The Sun and Mercury enter Scorpio, your solar ninth house, this week. Events pick up in regards to law, college, publishing, or spirituality.
