Saturday is the best day of the weekend for shopping and handling the priority details. Speak softly when the Moon squares sensitive Venus at 1:59 pm PDT but don’t be afraid to speak up when Venus sextiles Retrograde Mercury at 6:23 pm. A friendly Moon Uranus sextile follows at 8:14 pm encouraging calls and social visits.
Sunday’s Skywatch begins with a grumpy and confusing pair of aspects. The Sun squares hard-nosed Pluto at 5:12 am PDT followed by the Moon meeting dreamy Neptune in the heavens at 10:00 am. Green lights come on a minute later as the astrological weather clears. The kiss of the day appears at 4:24 pm when the Moon sextiles healing Pluto. Luna then turns Void of Course until tomorrow morning. As times change.
If your birthday is this week (October 17–23). Assertive Mars is on center stage in your new Solar Return, late Libra and early Scorpio birth signs. His square to Pluto creates a huge amount of energy that can be used in a positive way in your life and times. At his best, Pluto heals and transforms lead into gold. You can use his power to create new positive attitudes and to break through old roadblocks and difficulties that have held you back in the past. And you’ll have help from Mars sitting in a trine to lucky Jupiter in this chart of your new year. Friends can be of great assistance in your efforts—reach out and ask for help when you need it. This is a great year to break a bad habit, Libra and Scorpio. Reach for healing and an improvement in your life. As times change.
