The week begins with both Moon in Scorpio and Halloween. This should only prove to be too scary if you are both easily spooked and are close to a moody Scorpio. Other than that, there are three major aspects hang over the week that could, used properly, serve to make your human relations a little easier and a little more exciting.
Sun trine Neptune early on Tuesday is an easy aspect to overlook, but it can soften a difficult situation nicely if you take advantage of it. The Sun is the Ego — and you don’t have to be a Buddhist to realize that’s where a lot of our problems come from. A trine from Neptune can take the edge off of anything, so if you’ve been clashing with someone in particular too much lately, now may be the time to offer an olive branch… or to pay for the first round of drinks in order to work things out.
If your difficult people issues can be cleared up with reason and the right words, then Mercury sextile Pluto (exact late Wednesday/early Thursday, depending on your time zone) can sharpen your senses and your choice of words. Used wisely, this could make for a breakthrough with a difficult situation.
Of course, life isn’t all crisis management, and this is a forecast largely dedicated to love, sex, and romance. Don’t worry — neither I nor the Zodiac have forgotten about you this week. The big news for all you lovers (or wannabe lovers) this week is Venus trine Uranus, which is exact late Friday/early Saturday (but holds sway over the entire weekend). Uranus brings a sense of excitement and adventure to any planet it aspects, and Venus? Our dear friend The Goddess of Love needs a bit of a jolt every once in a while.
One more thing? Timing is everything, so work with the Moon this weekend when you’re scheduling a date. If you need a certain sense of stability, sincerity, or even control in your love life, aim for Friday or Saturday, when the Moon is in Capricorn. Need a little more freedom, adventure, or sense of exploration? Try Sunday, when the Moon is in Aquarius. Just make sure you’ve got the time of that date right — places (like the UK) that have Daylight Savings turn back the clock an hour at 2 AM Sunday. Sure, the extra sleep is great, but do you want to show up for that Big Date an hour late?
