Monday, October 26th: Moon v/c in Aries Most of the Day (2015)
In the EU/UK, something can be achieved if you do it before Noon. Expected the unexpected as the Moon interacts with Mercury (opposition) and Uranus (conjunction). You may not obtain the answer you expect to the question you have asked.
In the United States, most people should use this as an unofficial holiday or stick to the most routine matters possible. Some people are exceptions, but most people should stick to routine. Obviously, if you are in the U.S. and routinely communicate with people in the UK/EU then you might have a surprise (from their activity associated with Mercury / Uranus).
A Hard Rectangle formation begins shortly after midnight (1 AM EDT, 10 PM PDT) and is associated with the Full Moon that perfects 7 AM on Tuesday. A Square Key is also active during this period. The Thor’s Hammer that began October 21st is still in play, so avoid anger, road rage, and dangerous situations. This is probably NOT the day to be impulsive for most of us. For more detail, see the October Patterns List.
Sunday is another rough and tumble kind of day. With Moon in Aries, fire signs tend to have SOME advantage. Venus Conjunct Jupiter, third in the series, favors everyone but particularly earth signs and particularly Virgo in that group. This is your day to buy a lotto ticket Virgo. That may be more true metaphorically than literally, but you may have some special window available today.
Some rough spots are present. Mercury (Libra) quincunx Chiron (Pisces) and Opposite Uranus (Aries) creates a state of panic for students who have assignments coming due and possible emerging healthcare issues for some people (particularly elderly and disabled). As is always true, you must evaluate how the mix of aspects applies to your personal situation. (See, also, this analysis.)
Earth signs had Monday. Air signs had Wednesday. Water signs have today. Moon is in Pisces and opposes Venus, Jupiter, and Mars (in that order). This might feel, at times, a little rough to water signs, but this is the kind of roughness that helps you make decisions, act on them, and get things done. For the rest of us, the watery Piscean Moon makes this Saturday best used as a playday. And, it can be just that. (Avoid using it as a workday, if you can, unless you are a poet or musician or some similar kind of artist.)
Do note that this day is sandwiched between Friday (yesterday) and Sunday (tomorrow), and that both of those days have multiple major aspects. You may feel some pressure from those (especially if you have health issues or academic assignments due).
Friday, October 23: Sun Enters Scorpio and You are Tempted to Dig Deep
…but you should be careful regarding what you find. You might find a surprise, something this is not quite what you expected. Mars Quincunx Uranus tells of powerful unexpected events on this day. Still, most of us will not be able to resist pushing the envelope even though Mars Opposite Chiron tells us that we probably should do just that: resist the temptation to overdo it. If you must push so hard, maybe it should be in the area of a sexual experience with a regular partner, or at least that is what Venus Trine Pluto suggests.
This can be a very good day or a very bad day. The outcome depends on what you wish to do with it. Moon enters Sagittarius fairly early (about 5 AM CDT; 6 AM EDT; 3 AM PDT; adjust for your time zone), and we receive a reprieve from the void Scorpio Moon (which is great for FINDING things but sheer hell if you lost (misplaced) something during that period).
We hope you used Thursday for routine chores, introspection, and housecleaning because this Friday is a “party day”. It is terrible for most major purchases (except possibly art), signing contracts, and pouring concrete. Things done today tend to not last. But it is GREAT for romance, especially if you are in a committed relationship. (Otherwise, do not expect it to last if it is new. Take photographs and notes and just “have a good time.”) Try not to take anything too seriously today if you can avoid it.
If you are a “creative,” this is your time to write, make music, shoot photography or video, or do whatever your art may be.
Mercury sextiles Saturn today, and that makes it a very good day to take care of detailed work that may be a bit boring but is nonetheless important. Think of accounting, bill paying or anything that requires meticulous attention to detail. The Moon is just past new and waxing, so “things” tend to grow during this period whether they are problems or solutions. You get to choose which.
Moon is v/c until just past 4:30 PM CDT (please adjust for your time zone), so do note that some things may have to be re-done or you may find that the task master that demanded them suddenly no longer cares about them. Choose your battles (and how you spend your time) carefully. Despite the void Moon, it is still a good time to take care of routine detailed tasks that must be done anyway.
A Thor’s Hammer pattern is present, so remember to “keep your cool” and avoid losing your temper. Avoid dangerous people, places, and things as well. (The 9/11 attacks started during a void Moon, so bad things CAN happen at those times!) Work alone, if you can.
In any case, you really do want to “get things done” today and tomorrow because “things” get a bit messy on Thursday.
We have a New Moon in Libra that will lead us to re-evaluate all of our relationships. Both Sun and Moon are in the “Via Combusta” (“fiery way”), and we can expect certain issues will HAVE to be addressed at this time. Bite the bullet, swallow the medicine, and get it out of the way. You have important business to attend to on Tuesday, and “things” become messy again on Thursday. After the NM (about 4:30 PM CDT, 5:30 EDT, 2:30 PDT), Moon turns “void of course” (aka Moon v/c) until the next day, and this is a good time to reflect on recent events. Spend the time alone, if you can, and note that you can use this period to break some old habit that no longer serves you. Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) signs tend to be favored at this time.
As we prepare for the upcoming Mercury Direct Station, and a shift in our focus, we encounter this day in which we are hit with annoyances, maybe a feeling “something is wrong,” and a need to “get things done.” Depending on the decision we made yesterday (when Mars Opposed Neptune) we may have “buyers remorse” and regret a decision (or purchase) we recently made. Hold your temper, but focus your energy to get the results you need.
