Saturday, October 26

Tense. There is a strong challenging and accident-prone aspect in the Skywatch this weekend. Saturday is the best day for important chores and work, but caution lights are still up. The Moon meets aggressive Mars in the heavens at 12:48 pm PDT—play it safe and be careful around this moment. Luna travels on to square demanding Saturn at 1:32 pm. Evening hours are a bit stressful as the Moon squares inflexible Pluto at 10:38 pm. A frustrating and potentially violent Mars Saturn square puts more tension into evening plans. Best to keep it simple Saturday night.

Don’t rush in. Vibes are very good this morning as agreeable Venus sextiles powerful Pluto at 2:49 am PDT. And the Moon sextiles Mercury at 6:00 am. However, Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters gentle Libra at 1:20 pm. Hold off on making important decisions and purchases while the Moon is V/C. Green lights kick on once the Moon changes signs, and this is a stellar day to network and make an appearance. Libra is ruled by Venus, who is on stage with her positive link to Pluto. Evening hours are peaceful and good for introductions, and a good dessert—Venus loves sweets. As times change.

Green lights. The Moon in earth sign Virgo makes three positive connections to other planets on Thursday, creating an excellent day to handle important chores, shopping, and business. Luna trines practical Saturn at 1:05 pm PDT suggesting a good time to talk to the boss or deal with all authority figures. One foggy note appears in the heavens at 3:07 pm when the Moon opposes spacey Neptune—double-check the details around this moment. Evening hours good for social plans as the Moon sextiles loving Venus at 10:02 pm and then trines healing Pluto at 10:26 pm. As times change.

Chop wood, carry water, and keep it simple this morning.

The Moon squares Mercury at 2:14 am PDT and then turns Void of Course until she enters practical Virgo at 12:30 pm. Green lights come on a minute later as two new positive aspects follow.

Helpful is a sextile between the Sun and Moon at 12:39 pm, which balances ego and emotion and makes it easier to deal with the opposite sex.

A friendly Moon Uranus trine at 8:23 pm is just what you need to have an enjoyable evening alone or in a crowd.

As times change.

Take command.

The Moon sails through authoritative Leo today, and green lights are up. Luna sextiles eager Mars at 5:58 am PDT and then sails out into calm waters.

A difference in taste or color might be the case when the Moon squares vain Venus at 3:54 pm.

A spirit of resolution and optimism grows in the hours that follow as Luna travels on to trine the upbeat gambler Jupiter at 10:41 pm.

Clear skies follow.

As times change.

Monday, October 21

A good week is ahead. If you’ve been waiting for a time to put something complicated into motion, this is a good week to pull the trigger.

Agreeable Venus in healing Scorpio kisses both Neptune and Pluto this week, encouraging positive reactions from others and good financial news. There are no difficult aspects over the next five days, and that’s unusual.

There will be some angst in the next weekend’s Skywatch, so get to the important stuff this week. A grouchy Sun Moon square at 5:39 am PDT is the worst moment of the day. And caution lights kick on a minute later as Luna turns Void of Course until she enters upbeat Leo at 9:29 am.

Green lights kick on at this moment as a lovely Venus Neptune trine follows at 12:41 pm. This trine blends gentle and agreeable Venus with spiritual and creative vibes that will be a mellow influence and helpful for finding compromises and agreements on Monday.

One sharp sticker or perhaps a shock appears in the heavens at 5:56 pm when the Moon squares jumpy Uranus. Clear skies follow.

As times change.
