(October 22 – November 21, ’17) 

It’s time to crawl out of your shell and get back into circulation!  You’ll be feeling mentally sharp, with Mercury, your planet, in SCORPIO as this month begins.  Inquisitive and restless, you can be highly stimulated through the exchange of ideas & information; catch up on your communications, write a blog or advertise your services.  A variety of interests, classes, networking activities, short trips and contacts with relatives & neighbors will keep you busy this month (and for the year ahead), especially on 10/24, 26-27, 11/9, 13, 16, 18 & 20-21.  Don’t get too scattered or overextended, however, on 11/2-3 (Full Moon); drive carefully & communicate clearly.

From 10/22 on (and for the upcoming 6 weeks), emotional & financial security will become an important priority.  It’s a good time to balance your checkbook, look for new sources of income and stock up on necessities.  Make some improvements in your nutritional and dietary habits, and nurture yourself!  Once Mercury moves on to SAGITTARIUS on 11/5, you’ll be ready to stretch your legs and spread your wings – adventure awaits!  It could be a good time to visit a foreign country, expand your base of operations or do some writing or teaching.  A long-term project could get off the ground around 11/11.

LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’re experiencing a creative renaissance these days, with Pluto now in CAPRICORN (20082024). A powerful initiation is taking place within you, one that will inspire you to delve into new avenues of creative self-expression.  You’re ready to begin & develop new projects, hobbies, business ventures & romantic adventures; start-ups of all kinds (including children) will attract your attention.  Take some risks & by all means, have fun!  During this 16-year cycle, your inner child will be demanding the opportunity to play, initiate and speculate. You now have the energy & enthusiasm to manifest your hearts’ desire, so set clear intentions and go for it!  Committed, persistent & patient efforts will be rewarded!

You’ll be experiencing a subtle, yet significant shift in partnerships & teamwork interactions during Neptune’s transit of PISCES (20122026).  Outgrown patterns of relating to others will be dissolving, clearing the space for healthier relationships in all areas of your life.  Strive for clarity, consensus and conscious communications, so as to avoid illusionary, draining or toxic interactions.  You’ll be drawn to those with whom you sense a deep spiritual & psychic connection; seek out partnerships that are based on equality, compassionate understanding & mutual productivity.

With Uranus in ARIES these days (20112018), you’re awakening to alternative approaches in taking care of business, as well as a more enlightened path for managing your life.  The challenge is to establish trustworthy & responsible alignments when involved with joint finances, business partnerships & contractual matters.  Avoid surprises during this 7-year cycle: put things in writing and get legal counsel!  You can receive an unexpected inheritance.

You’ll be in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/1412/20/17). Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility & commitment during this 3-year cycle.  Utilize your creative talents and transform your domestic scene to one of comfort and stability.

With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (since 10/10 and for the next 13 months), you’ll find yourself stimulated by a variety of exciting ideas and mental pursuits.  Your mind will be fertile and expansive – a good time for studying, writing, networking and taking some trips.  Get back into circulation!!
