ASTRO & TAROT FORECASTS
Mercury retrograde, Venus moves into Sagittarius, Mrs and Uranus square off creating cosmic tension in the skies! This week is FILLED with exciting developments that we will need to be aware of! Let's dive in…
TIME TO GET SERIOUS- Mercury Connects with Saturn!
This week on the 28th Mercury ( the planet that rules communication, travel, and thinking) meets with Saturn- the planet of restriction. This sobers the energy of your thinking, especially when it comes to cementing long-term plans and goals! Saturn wants you to be SERIOUS about what you realized about yourself and what you are opening your energy up towards so he nudges you to build and place the foundation for those dreams and visions to become a reality! This is the time to start doing research for travel plans, for placing the deposit for your higher education, or to even establish a routine for your spiritual growth and regimen!
You will be able to work with the days surrounding this time to cement those plans as Mercury will be lingering around the energy of Saturn for a little while longer. If you are hesitant or unsure yet- don’t worry! Mercury will be flipping into retrograde motion allowing you to return back to your original plans and make any adjustments if needed!
You have to remember, not everything needs to be perfect! So, if you’re nervous about making a mistake throw that notion out of the door! The planets are working WITH YOU to guide and protect you and Mercury retrograde is the hidden blessing that will work in your favor!
EXPLORE, DISCOVER, INVITE IN ADVENTURE- Venus moves into Sagittarius!
In other news, on December 1st, Venus- the planet of beauty, love, and relationships- moves into the sign of Sagittarius! This switch is delightfully refreshing as partnerships and values shift from intensely and deeply passionate exploring to playful, fun, and exploring! Venus was moving through the sign of Scorpio causing us to narrow our focus to one partner or ‘the one”, with an emphasis on soulmate connection and deepening understanding! Now with her move into Sagittarius our energy shifts and we are ready to go out and explore- together with our partners or on our ways- to discover what is out there for us to love and value! Keep your mind open to trying new adventures and things, allow yourself to venture into places you would never have thought to go to! Venus in Sagittarius loves this and encourages us to explore in this way! This applies to shopping as well, as Venus rules values and things! Allow yourself to drift allows you to stumble on some incredible one of a kind treasures!
TENSION RISES- A WARNING- Mars Squares with Uranus
Also, on this day Mars squares off with Uranus which can be a problem! Mars rules our drive, passion, and aggression while Uranus rules surprise. When the two square off in this manner it can be explosive, especially if there is underlying tension or frustration! I’ve been warning of this aspect for over a week now and want everyone to steer clear of reckless or impulsive behavior, high-risk activities, or fighting… it quickly turns sour and without any warning!
REVISIT AND REVAMP- Mercury turns Retorgrade!
Finally, on December 3rd Mercury will turn retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius bringing old conversations and people back into our lives. Relationships that are in need of repair or attention will be highlighted for us and it is up to you to decide if what shows up during this time is worthy of your time, attention, and energy! If it is— take the time out to look at what needs fixing and adjusting and give it your all, being patient during every step of the process! If it isn’t than don’t waste your efforts on something you aren’t invested in- Mercury in Sagittarius wants you to keep your perspective wide open!
FUll MOON IN GEMINI!
And finally, we end this week with an incredible full moon in the sign of sociable Gemini! With so many planets crowded planets crowded in the signs that encourage your exploration and open mind this full moon will highlight this energy even further! Words and thoughts have incredible power for this full moon and written intentions and spoken words will hold incredible magick! Keep your eyes open for important text messages, phone calls, and conversations that will bring important news and information to you during this time!
This week is working like a huge cosmic purging- a twisting and a turning! For starters, last week we had the glorious full moon in Taurus that lit up the sky beautifully encouraging each of us to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY in all areas of our lives- relationships, work, lifestyle, etc.!
Taurus is ruled by the sign of Venus so it delights in the pleasure of the senses but it is also co-ruled by the element of earth, simplifying but increasing the quality of your blessings and abundance! Full moons work to purge, release, and bring things to fruition while are typically supremely raw emotional times for magick and reflection! Meanwhile, the sun is still completing the transit through the sign of Scorpio which again works to purge and release anything that ultimately doesn't serve us authentically or enrich us. Relationships dive into emotional and mental intimacy and connection, which may be tough to deal with if you're not ready or open to it but the planets are moving in ways to give your life purpose and meaning... that is something that can NOT come out of shallow relationships or lifestyles!
THINK BIG! Mercury moves into Sagittarius!
This week Mercury moves into the sign of Sagittarius, officially on the 5th! Mercury rules the mind, communication, and thoughts and now we are beginning to lift our eyes to see the BIGGER picture... We are wondering, 'Now that *this* has happened, now that I know- what do I want to do now? What do I want to do next?"
Asking yourself these questions now helps you to shift into planning and envisioning the future... especially if you've been spending the last month and some change reevaluating and transitioning!
RELATIONSHIP/MONEY SHIFTS- Venus into Scorpio
We haven't escaped the grasp of Scorpio yet as Venus (ruling relationships) moves into the sign of Scorpio this week. Again, this is another level of evaluation, purge, release, rebuild for love, personal power, and money! You may even feel the need to venture to the "dark side" with your appearance by wearing darker colors, dying hair dark, etc.!
COSMIC BEAUTY- VENUS & JUPITER MEET!
The 9th is another awesome day for finances and personal power as sun sextiles Pluto- the planet of transition and power! Focus on money & resources, depth in relationships, healing of the self! And lastly, this week ends with a cosmic golden aspect as Venus and Jupiter meet beautifully giving blessings, beauty, and bounty to you depending on what Scorpio rules within your chart!
TAROT/INTUITIVE MESSAGE- REEVALUATE!
This week's Tarot card pull is 2 of cups, 2 of wands, and knight of Swords. The need for balance and reciprocity in partnerships of all kinds is key this week!
Knight of Swords & 2 of Wands together predicts a rocky road for relationships (2 of Cups) especially as Venus opposes Uranus this week!
2 of Wands has MUCH energy, passion, plans,& a heart of gold!
He is planning to build a huge empire- his largest goal! He needs/wants people & things around him that will help to BUILD & support his energy… not steal, lie, exhaust him.
2 of Cups msg says VALUE the partnerships that are mutually giving- in fact, this card’s keyword is RECIPROCITY.
Partnerships need to be BALANCED (notice the symbolism of the number 2… one on each side, perfect balance!) & NOT a one-way street!
When the balance is OFF for too long, its no longer a partnership.
2 of Wands steps back & finally SEES the bigger picture while Knight of Swords is the gust of wind to deliver the final fatal message/ news!
It’s interesting that the energy& word of RELEASING is coming up, especially on the tail end of this Taurus full moon that brings much to surface, including endings & requires you to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY.
Who or what have you held close to your side& are they equally there for YOU?
Or are they benefiting from the light& resource that you give…?
I have this mantra for us all:
I RELEASE AND FORGIVE.
I EXPRESS THE THINGS THAT HAVE HURT ME AND MY WORDS ALLOW ME TO RELEASE ANY HEAVY CRYSTALLIZATION WITHIN ME.
I release WITHOUT expectation but what needs to be said MUST be said…
I don’t have to be everything to everyone, but I DO need to be there for mySELF.
I disconnect& remove any& all negative influence & surround mySeLF back with a protective bubble to guard my Sacred space & energy.
This allows me the space to be free to flow effortlessly.
I move back into creativity, creation, now that I have released with LOVE & continue to move forward with light& love surrounding me!
Remember QUALITY > QUANTITY!"
Best Week Ever?!
Astro/Tarot Forecast for 10/23- 10/29th!
LUCKIEST WEEK OF THE YEAR?!
Last week we had the Libra New Moon that was tensely aligned stressing partnership & balance. This new moon needed to be quiet and reflective with Uranus opposing the moon and sun setting emotions and actions to be somewhat unstable and the potential for people to lash out was strong- chances are you felt this in yourself or noticed it in others! Its awesome for setting intentions (what new or full moon isn't?!) but as far as the day and weekend being smooth sailing...? No, far from it!
This week we're stepping out of that space and things begin to calm down as the planets shift.
ENERGY EASES UP AFTER TRICKY NEW MOON!
Mars is moving out of the tense alignment with Saturn and now moving into the sign of fun and beauty-loving Libra! We can't take ourselves too seriously during the next week. Life in some ways may at times be heavy with responsibilities and commitments but apart of us is ready to put our feet up, socialize, sleep, shop, have some fun! This is all about BALANCE-yes, last week's major theme!
Mars rules the energy of how we achieve and accomplish tasks. Mars moving through Libra is indecisive, checking in with others, and once it makes its mind up uses wit and charm to get what it wants... then changes its mind again! Mercury in Scorpio is still seeking to understand what it TRULY wants... there are simply too many options- too many things to consider!
CREATIVE JUICES FLOW!
On the 24th our minds take a breather to let some sunshine in! Do yourself a favor and go for a break or walk in the sun to let yourself relax and let creative juices flow! The less pressure you put on yourself the more ideas will flow- today is the perfect day for this!
THINGS GET SPOOOOKY... IN A GOOD WAY!
Sun enters into the sign of Scorpio and naturally, we are drawn to the darker side of things- of course, because this is the vibe of Scorpio! Skeletons, scary movies, death and transition... its like we're taking off a fur coat to put on a black leather one or even a witch's cape! Allow yourself to indulge in Halloween activities, interests, events!
BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!
The 26th is a brightly lit day when Sun and Jupiter meet! Sun is our life energy and Jupiter is expansion- together they bring luck to each and all! Today would be an awesome day to initiate a new project, give a speech, start a business that is connected to your passion, or even go on a date! Mark this date in your calendar!
TAROT CARDS FOR THIS WEEK: 2 of Wands and 2 of Wands!
Yup, a double whammy of 2 of wands energy! You can't help but weight all of the pros and cons during decision making! Look at ALL the options and connect with what makes the most sense- and feels right, even if scary!- to you! You can't go wrong!
TENSE ALIGNMENTS- GIVE OR TAKE
This week is tense but if you play your cards right you can absolutely assist the cosmos in working for you and not against you, however, flexibility is a must!
For starters, looking at the astro chart for this week I can quickly see a tense alignment between most of the personal planets.
Sun opposes Uranus creates an impulsive and easily irritated energy that is hard to ignore! It seems as though either you or those around you may have a short fuse that you may feel under the surface all week!
Moon opposing Neptune at the start of the week has most feeling highly sensitive to vibrations in your environment! You can pick up on even the tiniest changes!
Mentally we are drifting and daydreaming as Mercury opposes Neptune. At best our imagination is strong but when making logically sound decisions we struggle, especially as the other planets are competing with each other and peer pressuring us to make impulsive decisions over temporary feelings!
Sun opposing Pluto makes you want to break totally away from the norm… or anything that you feel is restricting you and your flow while Mars squaring Pluto flares tempers and makes you want to push even harder against the obstacle…which can not only be exhausting but su[er frustrating as your noticing the more you tend to push the more you are met with resistance!
It's hard to hold back with transits like this and it's up to you to decide what is worth fighting for and where you would do better to hang up your hat or try a totally different path to get to what you want!
WORK FOR BALANCE- NEW MOON IN LIBRA- OCT 19TH
On the 19th the skies are lit up with the New Moon in Libra… the sign that rules balance, partnership, beauty & glamour!
Even though the surrounding planets are creating tense and sensitive aspects this could be just the push we need to start fresh in welcoming and working more balance into our lives!
For example, maybe you are so caught in trying to make others happy that you are neglecting yourself… this new moon reminds you to make that change because to give too much for too long exhausts you and takes away from your energy!
Reflect on your relationships- are they balanced or equal? Or do they need some tweaking so both partners are fulfilled? If single, the energy of your independence is highlighted! Begin planning for how you wish to share (or not!) yourself with others!
TAROT MESSAGE- 8 of Wands, Knight of Pentacles, and The Moon
8 of Wands speeds around the Knight of Pent and his horse like a gust of wind...
The horse is spooked but the knight reminds grounded, in control, centered.
His steely eyes are focused and if his heart was beating fast out of fear or excitement you couldn’t tell for each of his moves, his words are deliberate and well thought out, expressed with perfect timing!
CHANNEL the energy of the knight this week!
It’s easy to lose yourself in the swirling confusion/activity around you- but stay FOCUSED. Stay GROUNDED.
One thing at a time- not everything ALL at once!
Moon’s appearance shows the heightened sensitivity of our feelings- all may not be all that it seems and you’ll do best to take it slow and not force anything to be! Remember, the planets move with perfect timing and will trigger where your attention and focus needs to be next. If something feels off give it your love and energy to help make it right again!
We start this week with the moon in the fidgety sign of Gemini! We can't help but wiggle in our seats as our minds and energy picks up speed and begins to race! To top this off, Mercury (ruling Gemini) conjoins perfectly with the sun emphasizing the brilliance of the mind, thinking, and thought! This week channel this energy to build connections and communication with others, sharing ideas, and brainstorming- you won't regret it! This also an excellent aspect for writers & bloggers, those who problem solve, and those studying or taking tests! The cosmos are shining their light on you!
JUPITER MOVES INTO SCORPIO- OCT 10th
A huge astro event happening this week is Jupiter's move from Scorpio into Libra! Jupiter rules expansion, abundance, and fun while Scorpio energy is exactly the opposite! It is an intense and private sign and highlights the importance and magnitude of deeply intimate relationships of all kinds- romantic, platonic, business partnerships, etc.! For most, Jupiter will lighten the energy as we explore ourselves and others which is lucky because to move through this transit with any of the other outer planets can feel doubly intense and emotionally draining to deal with for extended periods of time. Scorpio rules sex and intimacy but also our reproductive health- the focus shifts to this from now until the following few months during this transit! Don't be surprised if during this time our society shifts to some sort of sexual reawakening or reevaluation- you heard this prediction here first!
When Jupiter was in Libra the focus was on relationships but now in Scorpio, we really start thinking about intimacy- the deep and private sharing of our true selves with others. Anyone can have a relationship... but trust found and built through intimacy is something that is rare and a treasure. Let's not mistake sex for intimacy (although Scorpio does rule sex) because although the two go hand in hand you can't fake intimacy or force it by simply having sex alone. Intimacy is developing by finding soulmate relationships (friendships, etc!) and sharing your raw self with another! This vibration builds starting now and asks you to watch and work to increase the energy of relationships in your own personal life!
If you would like to read/hear more about Jupiter's move into Scorpio check out BehatiLife's YouTube Channel- I will discuss all!
MARS SQUARES SATURN- OCT 11th- STEER CLEAR!
Also, this week Mars (the warrior planet!) squares off with Saturn (planet of restriction) creating a tense and potentially violent atmosphere! On this day and the days surrounding patience is dangerously thin and some of us may find it difficult to hold ourselves back from reacting if something sets us off or feels like its holding you back! This is not the time to start or provoke fights because it can escalate far faster than you or anyone else would have imagined! It is best to lay low and remove yourself from situations that you don't see ending positively!
VENUS MOVES INTO LIBRA- OCT 14th- HELLO, BEAUTIFUL!
Venus rules beauty, love, and glamour and moves into the sign that she loves the most- Libra! The planets are not afraid to play favorites and when Venus moves into her home sign she feels comfortable to express herself in the way that only she can! For us this gives us the chance to beautify ourselves and the things that we love- our homes, others, our pets, etc.! We are tempted to shop and treat ourselves... and by all means, enjoy! Surrounding yourself with things that are beautiful reduces our stress so stop and give yourself flowers, window shop, focus on self-care, and spend time with friends or taking the person you love on a romantic date!
