Here are the major aspects I see for the week ahead:

MONDAY - the Sun sextiles Saturn, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter (27 degrees Scorpio) and starts walking degrees he/she will walk two more times during November's Mercury retrograde
TUESDAY - Venus (in Scorpio) squares the North (Leo) and South (Aquarius) Nodes of Fate
WEDNESDAY - Happy Halloween! Venus opposes Uranus then retrogrades back into Libra, Mercury moves into Sagittarius and trines the North Node
THURSDAY - Jupiter trines Chiron

We start the week with alot of Scorpio energy at play, so, again expect to be focused on Scorpian themes - life/death, taxes, banking, big money, other people's resources/money, loans, inheritances, insurance, sex, reproduction, intimacy, secrets, third party situations, power plays/struggles, obsessions, control, jealousy, manipulations, karmic situations, Halloween(!).

The Moon in Cancer (Monday/Tuesday) will likely tie those Scorpian themes in with our Cancerian agendas - home, family, structure, stability, mom, real estate, home business, renovations, patriotism.

If there was a decision we needed to make and didn't make last week - this week is probably going to force our hand.

On MONDAY Mercury (news, information, communication, paperwork) will hook up with expansive and optimistic Jupiter at 27 degrees Scorpio. If you have important paperwork to submit somewhere - get it in.

We can see the forest AND the trees now.

We could be working with private information/conversations, financial paperwork, deep research - the stuff under the hood - including buried psychological issues. BIG ideas are possible now - keep your mind open. With Jupiter trining Chiron (exact on Thursday) there is something healing with whatever we are saying/hearing/learning/writing/signing.

With Chiron back in Pisces we are healing the wounds of our past, our past lives and our ancestors.

There is an opportunity here for a healing explanation/clarification and/or good news AND the fact that Mercury is meeting Jupiter on the day he/she starts covering the degrees she will re-walk next month when retrograde is good news for whatever we will be re-viewing, re-vising, re-working over the next few weeks. Mercury and Jupiter will be meeting three times over the next few weeks - today is the kick-off.

Mercury's upcoming retrograde also means there won't be a straight line from A to B with whatever we have going on, so keep this in mind, too.

We are going to be back here in the beginning of December (the first couple weeks of December are going to be important if we have anything important going on now!) and in the meantime, we are going to have to zigzag our way through all of this!

The fly in the ointment with Jupiter (isn't it too cold for these damn things?!) is we have to keep a lid on anything that is TOO much - over-confidence, over-the-top thinking, sermonizing people (thinking we know it all), fanatical thinking, yada yada.

At the same time the Sun (at 4 degrees Scorpio) is sextiling (opportunity) Saturn (at 4 degrees Capricorn). This is hard work paying off with recognition. This is us setting practical goals and seeing them through. Good energy for dealing with authority figures.

There aren't any short cuts here though.

Saturn is in Capricorn, folks, the green beans MUST be in the cupboard or we don't eat. If our ancestors hadn't filled their cupboards by November, Scorpio season - the season of death - they had to go outside and kill something or pull some root vegetable out of the ground. We probably won't need to shoot a squirrel for dinner (I hope so, for our sake, and, for the sake of poor little Rocky), but it's not the season of picking a tomato from the garden and just eating it. We have to dig.

On TUESDAY, Venus's retrograde journey (as us) through Scorpio brings her (as us) to a crossroads with the Nodes of Fate. Here we are with whatever Venus issue - the relationship, love, money, resources, values, self-esteem - we have been working with since Venus stationed retrograde in early October. There is kind of a "day of reckoning" feel about this energy - like a splash of cold water in our face.

And then tomorrow she is going to oppose "anything can happen" liberating Uranus - the ruler of the South Node! This will connect back to events from last week's Full Moon in Taurus (October 24th).  

Events could take a dramatic turn now. There is a fated "turn of the wheel" with whatever is happening, so know everything is going to be alright, even if it feels like/seems like it isn't. Even if it seems like we cannot handle what is opposing us.

Relationship/financial tangles are going to feel very different by the end of the week when Venus has settled into Libra - the situation may not work out exactly how we had hoped, but 1. we will feel better about it, maybe even relieved, quickly  2. the story hasn't all played out YET and 3. contacts with the Nodes of Fate are ALWAYS moving us in our best possible direction - trust whatever unexpected stuff comes up now.

Remember that North Node is in Leo for ONLY a couple more weeks - this is it.

We are going with our heart, with what we want to create, stepping into the center stage of our own life, taking care of the children/our inner child, making ourselves proud.

We are releasing the Aquarius crap that we no longer need - the distraction, the alienation, the fear of being ostracized, the hiding out in the audience, the detachment, the over-thinking, the intellectual bullshit.

What does our heart really want??!! Venus has been working through Scorpio to show us what we really value - so what do we really value?

It is decision time. This doesn't mean we have to know exactly what we are doing or exactly where everything is heading - we are never going to know this. This is the Age of Aquarius - uncertainty is a certainty now. With all the Sag/Jupiter energy this week, we are going to need some faith.

The Moon goes void at 10:31PM EDT and then moves into Leo at 10:42PM EDT pulling our emotional focus toward Leo themes (or your natal Leo house theme) - creativity, children, our projects, recreation, romance, sports, that thing we are proud of - for the next couple days.

On WEDNESDAY, the energy SHIFTS big time as two planets move into new signs.

Venus backs into Libra - focusing that Venus retrograde situation on our relationships/justice/balance/the other people in our lives (including competitors). She comes up from the Scorpio darkness and into the harmony and civility of a sign she RULES. Even moving backward she is strong here.

Where is Libra in your natal chart - what is that house's theme? The Venusian re-view moves there. At the same time she is going to oppose Uranus (in Taurus and answering to her).

That opposition to Uranus tells us to expect the unexpected. Liberating surprises (Uranus) with love, relationships and money (Venus) are possible now. Women will surprise us. Old loves and financial situations could show up again. Break-ups and breakthroughs are possible. If a purchase has been in the works for a while now - this could be when money changes hands. For impulsive purchases - watch your wallet!

There will probably be a woman in the news that has the collective's attention this week.

Venus/Uranus takes us back to mid-September - what was going on then?- and forward to mid-December when things will be reaching some kind of culmination.

Also on Wednesday, Mercury - the ruler of our minds, thinking, communication, the process and physical means of getting things from point A to point B, our local environment, our siblings, our pets, paperwork - comes up from the depths of Scorpio and flies into the "sky's-the-limit" space of Sagittarius. This can be disconcerting.

The scope of information available to us broadens. All the little details we have been immersed in during Mercury's transit through Scorpio fade from view a bit.

It's like we have applied a wide angle lens to our camera. There is more to see (know) but less to specifically look at.

Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter) is optimistic energy. So those big bodacious ideas will carry us further now.

People will be thinking and talking BIG. Making BIG plans. Using BIG persuasive, language. It's a good time to sell your "whatever it is", but also a good time to be sold a bill of goods. Keep in mind that words and information could mislead us as our focus moves away from those pesky details and onto the larger landscape.

Sagittarius isn't Mercury's favorite place because Mercury likes precision and focus and Sagittarius is rather boundless and stretchy and with Mercury there our thinking/ideas/beliefs can kind of be all over the place.

Sagittarius is the great teacher/sage. The archer rules wisdom and philosophy. This is a good time to take something we are interested in to a higher level. Sagittarius rules our collective ninth house (plus the house in your chart with Sagittarius on the cusp!) so communications and information could focus on 9th house themes - legal issues, foreign issues, higher education, travel, religion, weddings, politics, the media, marketing.

Keep in mind Mercury is set to go retrograde in a couple weeks and is walking degrees she will walk two more times - so whatever we have going on will be subject to re-views and re-visions.

Immediately Mercury is going to trine that Leo North Node - this is our thinking and OUR WORDS influencing our outcome. PAY ATTENTION. We could hear just the thing we need to hear, the right book falls into our lap, we could say just the right thing at just the right time.  This is where life is conspiring to get the paperwork/the manuscript/the idea into the right person's sights. 

We can see how this week's energies are working together to get us where we need to go.

On THURSDAY, the trine we have been building toward between Jupiter (still in Scorpio but with bags packed for his home sign of Sagittarius) and healing/hurting Chiron in Pisces, is exact.

The truth is healing. The big-picture is healing. Adventure is healing. Optimism and open-mindedness is healing. Humor is healing.

We will talk more about this week as we move through it.

Big energetic shifts are coming mid-week. xo all
