Astro-Weather: Week of Oct. 6-12, 2010
By Guy Spiro
Wednesday, Oct. 6—Be aware of two major energies today. The first is positive and sheds light on relationships. Take a friendly, cooperative and open approach, and learn from each other. Do be aware, however, that Venus is at station point and is about to go retrograde, as is always the case when this aspect forms. In your discussions with partners today, you might want to think about what you do and do not want to bring up for examination at this time, and especially through the retrograde when past issues come to the forefront. You will notice energy levels rising through today, especially after the moon void of course ends and tomorrow’s new moon rolls in. The moon will be void of course today from 11:42 this morning until 2:51 this afternoon, when it enters Libra. At that point, the energy will shift noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more concerned with balance, beauty and fairness, and the new moon period will begin in earnest. It is exact at the midday tomorrow, so be aware of it through the rest of today, and be good. Minor energies are of no help with scattered minor irritability here and there through the day, so good choices will be important.
Thursday, Oct. 7—Today is new moon day. It is exact at 1:45 this afternoon. Remember that what you start at around new moon brings results at the next full moon. Obviously, it pays to start things you want to see results from and not to start things you don’t. This new to full period is not as challenging as some we’ve seen recently, but it will be a good idea to focus on self-discipline and be careful with authority. Be aware of two more major energies today. The first is good for starting projects involving communication and transportation in a solid and disciplined way. It is also very good for initiating negotiations leading to long-term agreements. The second is also good for starting projects involving communication and transportation, as well as anything having to do with electricity, electronic media, science, technology and magic. Moods should be more positive than otherwise through the day, and you will want to make the best possible use of it.
Friday, Oct. 8—Consider the new moon to remain with us right on through today and well into tomorrow. Be good, and make the right kinds of beginnings. Yesterday’s other major energies also remain active through today, so make good use of them as well. Be aware of two more major energies today. The first is Venus turning retrograde in today’s early predawn, and it backs up in our sky until Nov. 18. During a Venus retrograde, what can easily occur is that people and relationships from the past reappear. When this happens, there is sometimes a tendency to rekindle old flames. This seems like a good idea, until the retrograde ends, and we remember why the relationship ended the first time. On the other hand, this energy can be used positively to learn from past relationships. The second is a repeat of yesterday’s positive energy in a stronger form. Continue to make new beginnings in communication, transportation and negotiation. However, do be aware of and work around today’s moon void of course period that runs from 8:38 this morning until 2:52 this afternoon, when the moon enters Scorpio. At that point, the energy will shift noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more intense and passionate. This will be a high-energy social Friday night, but remember the new moon, and be good.
Saturday, Oct. 9—Late Friday-night social scenes will be highly energized well into today’s predawn. Have a great time, but again, the new moon…be good. Be aware of two major energies today. The first brings out the space cases. Watch for the inebriated and otherwise out-of-it, who will be much in evidence. Spaciness and confusion can easily arise in any context, and you will want to be especially careful in traffic. The second is related to the positive energy from the past two days for making new beginnings in communication, transportation and negotiation. Reread, make the best possible use of this and think big. Aside from the major energy, moods will be more positive than otherwise from the late predawn through the mid morning. The midday may have some erratic emotional responses, but pay positive attention to relationships, and let little annoyances go by. Moods will improve through the rest of the afternoon and most of the evening. Take a friendly, active and communicative approach. Some brief, minor coercive irritability may occur in the later evening, but this will pass quickly, if it’s noticed at all. The rest of the nighttime is open, and this should be a positive social Saturday night.
Sunday, Oct. 10—Late Saturday-night party scenes should run unimpeded as far into today’s predawn as anyone will want to take it. Some hard attitudes may be evident in the very late predawn into the early morning, but most of us should have packed it in by then. Be aware of two major energies today. The first is positive for communication in relationships. With an open and honest approach, progress can be made, possibly on issues from the past. Remember that Venus is retrograde, and this energy can bring communication from old flames. The one thing you don’t want to do is voice comparisons between old partners and current ones. Even attempts at doing it in favor of who you are with now can unintentionally go badly. The second is highly cautionary. Watch for secret and coercive activities up to and possibly including violence. Keep an eye on motives, yours as well as others, and do not let minor disputes escalate. Under no circumstances allow yourself to be drawn into altercations with strangers. Be aware of a moon void of course period this afternoon from 1:28 until 5:09 when the moon enters Sagittarius. At that point, the energy will lift noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more expansive and open to a range of ideas.
Monday, Oct. 11—Yesterday’s high cautionary energy will remain with us through today. Reread yesterday, and apply the cautions carefully. Another major energy running through today is much more positive. This energy sheds light on the uses of energy and power. With a disciplined and communicative approach, much may be accomplished. You may also be able to make progress in dealings with authority. Aside from the major energy, the predawn is open. Good moods should be dominant through the rest of the day. Take a friendly, yet disciplined, approach through the morning. Pay attention to relations with others in the afternoon. Relax and enjoy the evening right on through the late night.
Tuesday, Oct. 12—The high positive energy from yesterday should remain with us through today. Reread and make the best possible use of it. There is another major energy to be aware of today, however, and it is not a good one. Watch for erratic behavior in relationships with potential for unreasonable and unrealistic demands for change. Remember that Venus is retrograde, so issues from the past can resurface, and you will definitely not want to speak of old flames with current partners. Good moods from last night will run through today’s predawn. This should be a productive workday, but watch for some exaggerated emotional reactions in the mid-afternoon. Minor irritability may set in through the evening with erratic emotional responses and relationship issues. Also, be aware that the moon will be void of course from 7:08 this evening until 11:18 tonight, when the moon enters Capricorn. At that point, the energy will lift noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more down to earth and concerned with accomplishment.
