Let love lead! Actually, you’ll be happy to slide into the passenger’s seat and let some peaceful and creative solutions take the wheel on Monday, October 15. That day brings a harmonizing hookup of communicator Mercury and gentle Venus in your sign, illuminating choices that blend logic and emotion. If you’ve been operating in low-power mode or have felt out of the loving loop since Venus turned retrograde in your sign on October 5, this alignment can give you a cosmic chiropractic adjustment. Don’t throw yourself a pity party or complain you can’t get anything going. There’s strength in numbers, as these social planets hasten to remind you, so surround yourself with people who can help flip the switch on your energy source. If something’s bothering you, don’t sweep it under the rug. Lean in to the messenger planet’s direct style of expression and speak your piece! And should you feel yourself slipping into a “helplessness hole,” reach out to someone in your inner circle who can literally lend a hand, pull you out and redirect you toward supportive resources and organizations. Was there something you wish you’d said to your S.O. or a date? Instead of kicking yourself for missing the “perfect” opportunity, give yourself a do-over. Meet for a drink or gather at the kitchen table and spill your heart out. Whether you want to ‘fess up to your feelings with someone new or sort out a longstanding issue with your partner, the only way to move forward is with honesty—and your trademark soulful intensity.
Could your social circle benefit from a little pruning? If so, slip on the gardening gloves and get ready to do just that. On Tuesday, a recalibrating quarter moon in grounded Capricorn may inspire an unflinching reassessment of the people you’ve granted all-access passes to. Everyone is “busy,” Scorpio, but that’s no excuse for not treating you like the gem of a friend you are! You can't build a relationship with “friends” who keep blowing you off, and this moon’s message is that it may be time to thin the herd. You don't have to do anything drastic, like unfriend them on social media; just take them off your priority list and use your time to nurture bonds with the interesting (and, more to the point, interested) acquaintances who keep trying to get YOU on their calendars. One of those budding connections could accelerate this week, sparking a potential collaboration. Why compete when you can combine forces? This could be the "scalability" solution you've been waiting for!
On Saturday and Sunday, the moon is aglow in Pisces and your fifth house of glamour, amour and fame. If you're not performing onstage with your band, killing it at karaoke or bringing the mic drops at an improv night, your unleashed fashionista will stop the street-style bloggers in their tracks. This is a weekend to abandon your usual enigmatic M.O. and go “maximalist.” A romantic situation that sparked around the August 26 Pisces full moon could take flight now. Attached? With your fifth house lit, it’s a perfect time to reopen that convo about commitment, babies or other major milestones.
