The Stars This Week - Oct. 23 - Oct. 29, 2006
Tune into Your Feelings, but Delay Making Decisions

10/23/06 - 10/29/06

When planets station to turn retrograde or direct, change signs and form dynamic aspects all within a short period of time, change is in the air. The Sun and Mars enter intense Scorpio on October 23 where they conjunct on the same day. Venus follows into the same sign a day later on October 24 and gets together for a powwow with both the Sun and Mars on October 25 and 27. In the midst of this mini-conference, the two social planets, expansive Jupiter and Saturn the rule-maker, square on October 25 as they figure out where cutbacks need to occur. As if this weren't enough, Mercury turns retrograde on October 28, bringing misunderstandings and communication snafus. Neptune, the dreamer, turns direct a day later on October 29, and what you want from life begins to fall into place.

October 23: The Sun and Mars enter Scorpio; October 24: Venus enters Scorpio

Think of the Sun as the director, Mars as the advocate or warrior, and Venus as the mediator or lover. As all three head into Scorpio, the most passionate sign of the zodiac, deep feelings ignite and no one is likely to be lukewarm about anything. They meet up in a triple conjunction, and this powerful trio will be residing somewhere in your own chart. Is that a good thing? If you can harness this determined energy and give it something productive to do, you'll be able to do more this week than you've probably done all year! Mars sets a new course as it enters Scorpio, where it will remain until December 6. You can use this powerful energy to take you where ever you want to go. If you know your own chart, use this energy to reform and transform the life area and relationships represented by the house that Mars is traveling through. With Venus in Scorpio, the urge is to connect profoundly. Less than that simply won't do.

October 25: Jupiter squares Saturn

Both Jupiter transiting through Scorpio and Saturn traveling through Leo are direct, but because of their previous retrogrades, this Jupiter-Saturn square also occurred back on December 17, 2005 and June 22, 2006. This describes a significant change in your worldview, and you are likely to consider making some lifestyle changes. This aspect doesn't occur very often, so it's important when it does. Jupiter represents how we relate to the world, and Saturn represents how we construct the life we want. It's time to cut back on excesses. What are yours? This is also a great time to assess areas of life where you are overcommitted. People who are a drain rather than an asset to your life will get a thorough review now. Are they worth the time and energy you put into them? How about your job? Is it time to consider work that more accurately reflects who you are? This has been a 10-month transit, and you are now ready to put the finishing touches on your life plan.

October 28: Mercury turns retrograde

Mercury goes retrograde for approximately 21 days three times each year. This time, Mercury will be retrograde until November 17. Mercury rules all forms of communication, and when Mercury turns around and goes back through territory it's already traversed, it is time for you, too, to travel back. Nothing beats this time for looping back to old contacts, reviewing your ideas and rethinking how you are scheduling your time. Making future-oriented decisions now can get you into trouble. Misunderstanding, indecision and anxiety occur because not enough information is available. Do yourself a favor and use this astrological information to your advantage. While everybody else is running around fixing all of those mistakes they are making, sit down, pour yourself a tasty beverage and relax!
