The main two planetary events of the week is the fact that Venus, the Planet of Love, shifts out of Libra and enters the deep waters of Scorpio on the 8th. It remains in our sign until November 1st, which means that for the rest of the month, all eyes, ears and thoughts will be on you. You’re permeating people’s consciousness like never before. They’re magnetically drawn to you, even if they’re in denial or trying to ignore you. You can’t be ignored, ahaha. You can only be felt. Powerfully. Transcendentally. Universally.
This week is a powerful portal between the Libra New Moon and Aries Full Moon taking place this Sunday, October 13th. Plus Thursday, October 10th is 10/10, which signals synchronicity, alignment, and divine protection. 10/10 is one of the most magical days of the week to go on a date with a friend, lover, or yourself. Prepare to hear really exciting news or to have someone share their feelings with you this Wednesday and Thursday, because the Moon will be in Pisces, and when you blend the Pisces Moon with both Mercury and Venus in Scorpio, people will be pouring their hearts out to you, and you’ll also be feeling the urge to (selectively) do the same.
Venus aligns with Neptune mid-week, and this intensifies our focus on love and relationships. You are learning how to be less reactive and more present in your connections. Even if you’ve been hurt in the past, the key to thriving this week is to focus on who people are in this present moment, while releasing your grip on who they previously were. You also have to make sure you’re not pushing people away simply because they remind you of past energy, or because you’re afraid that connecting with them will lead to pain. The truth is, Scorpio, all relationships can lead to pain somehow or another. It’s unrealistic and even psychologically harmful to expect people to make you happy. Lovers assist us in the act of making ourselves happy. Reframe any mindset that makes you feel like you need someone to complete you or to feel whole. You complete yourself, and everyone else is a cherry on top.
By the time the Aries Full Moon takes place on the 13th, you may feel like you’ve evolved to a whole new level of your being, in just one week! That’s because as Scorpio Season approaches, our ascension and consciousness is rapidly shifting. Plus Aries energy tends to speed things up, and Chiron, the asteroid that has to do with our inner wounds, is currently retrograde in Aries, making it important for us to break free of limiting mindsets and set ourselves on a more expansive path. Because the Aries Full Moon will be making an intense connection with Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, expect the unexpected this weekend. An impromptu job offer, a break-up or make-up, a new encounter, a financial windfall, a new fitness routine or food regimen, and a sudden breakthrough in consciousness that helps you finally see the light and accept your reality for what it is. The great news is, you are the co-creator of your reality, and this Full Moon grants you permission to recreate yourself if you so choose. Abracadabra, baby.
