Week of Oct. 15-21, 2014
This Week: The focus this week is on the pending solar eclipse arriving zero degrees Scorpio on Oct. 23. Be prepared to have your world rocked in some way, shape or form. This will be intensified by Mercury retrograde, which asks us to take charge of our own destiny. If you hide your head in the sand, the universe will force these changes with or without your permission. Considering Mercury is still in retrograde until the 26th, back up your computer, check and double check travel plans, and be cautious in traffic. As long as we are aware of these elements, we can avoid annoying delays and setbacks. This is a time when the “blast from the past” will be very evident. Past relationships, good or bad, will resurface to be explored again. Sometimes a healing vibration can arrive under these conditions.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Those from your past may be re-entering your orbit this week; however, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Alignments with future career advancements arrive within this mix, making it a powerful week to advance professionally. Your concern about the welfare of a female is not exaggerated — it’s real. Offer the emotional support she may need to get by.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may be receiving some disturbing news regarding a female within your midst or outer orbit. Perhaps it would be best to sit on this information until you have gathered all of the facts. More information is to come, and retribution will arrive in a timely fashion to protect those loved ones you hold near and dear to your heart. In other words, the universe will take care of it, and you won’t have to do a thing.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — The past is certainly weighing on your mind this week, and you may even be considering giving someone an earful “again” as a result of the unresolved feelings that have arrived as a result of their behavior. Let it go; you have already made your point, and to “beat a dead horse” is not your style. Positive financial opportunities arrive from an unexpected source.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may be very bewildered by a past love or friendship resurfacing. Questioning the motives or the unexplained synchronicity will only drive you crazy in the long run. Take a step back and see what evolves from this aspect. At the end of the day, you will find you have learned more about yourself than you expected to. This permanently shifts the way you perceive others.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You’re taking a lighter approach to a deeper issue, and this is for the best. If you show some compassion toward the feelings of others, you will learn a tremendous amount about yourself. We have no control over the actions and behavior of others. If we can just live in the moment, peace — as well as justice — will follow.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — An unexpected gift or honor will be bestowed upon you this week. You will be pleasantly surprised at the outcome of this endeavor. You have finally become confident enough to trust the universe’s “bigger plan.” In the grand scheme of things, everyone comes into our lives for a reason. This is a time to celebrate our own life as well as the lives of others.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Reality is arriving for you or another, regardless of preparation of either party. Legal documents must be addressed, and if ignored, a wrecking ball will arrive to clean up the mess. This may be a great time to consider alternative options for employment. Offers may arrive through unexpected sources.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This is a great time to consider your long-term career path and possibly look for a different work environment. A Gemini, Aquarius or Libra male may have some powerful insight for you, so keep your eyes and ears open. Put your best foot forward, and realize all eyes are on you. First impressions sink in deep.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You’re heading into an extremely busy week with a tremendous amount of financial gain in store for you. So, get plenty of rest and hit the pavement running. You have stumbled across some disturbing news regarding a loved one, and you’re trying to figure out the best way to approach it. Less is more.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Time to start utilizing the “me first” attitude a bit instead of the “everyone else comes first” routine. You may have been coloring within the lines a little too much for your own mental well-being as of late. Once we remind ourselves that we truly have no control over anything in life, the more peaceful we become. If you love something, set it free. If it’s meant to come back to you, it will.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Romantic elements may feel a bit off early on this week. It may be best to just walk wide of this instead of taking a crowbar to it. If you allow another to catch up to you emotionally, all will fall magically into place by week’s end. If you “cop” an attitude, you may end up paying severely for it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may find yourself dreadfully missing someone or something early on this week. A quiet household or work environment could be intensifying this aspect. It may be time to put your heart out on the line and express how you really feel about a significant other as well as a family member.
