Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of October 7, 2019 - a roadblock, disruptive clarity, seductive attractions, fated choices, shifting values, plus a huge Full moon at the end of the week

MONDAY - Sun squares Saturn, Mercury opposes Uranus
TUESDAY - Venus enters Scorpio, Mars opposes Chiron
SATURDAY - Venus opposes Uranus, Mercury trines the North Node
SUNDAY - Full Moon in Aries (20 degrees)

Lots happening and we are building to a big, fiery Full Moon in Aries (squaring Pluto) at the end of the week. The middle of the week looks the simplest ...

On MONDAY, the Sun (in Libra) squares Saturn (in Capricorn).

We talked about this yesterday:

"Our life force/creativity is blocked somehow. There is pressure, tension, frustration. Maybe too much work or too much service is being required of us. We could doubt our own abilities and any space we "don't have what it takes" could be right in our face and possibly even on view for others.

Maybe we get a "no". Maybe something that stabilizes us comes to an end or a relationship ends or the balance shifts. Maybe something requiring additional responsibilities/work could begin.

Whatever this wall is for our egos in this cycle - we hit it. "DAM!" said the fish when she did. Ack!

(and with the Sun in Libra we might experience this through another person or through a relationship situation)

Patience and diligence are really the only antidotes to a Saturnian wall.

Big girl pants meet big girl ass" ... then get on with it.

Sun/Saturn can be depressing/draining. It's cyclical, it's predictable, the Sun is fast moving - keep this in mind now. 

At the same time Mercury (in Scorpio) is opposing Uranus (in Taurus). Secrets could be exposed suddenly. Truth comes out. Information is revealed/conversations happen/decisions are made - that provide clarity, but are also disruptive/chaotic.

This can also just be, if this isn't hitting your personal chart closely - because Mercury rules the day-to-day stuff - changes in our plans. Sudden changes with a sibling situation. Transportation issues.

Not an easy day though, but at least we have an Aquarius Moon to temper everyone's emotions ... drive safely.

On TUESDAY, Venus dives from Libra, the home-girl sign she rules, into the deep, murky waters of Scorpio.

Venus is considered in her 'detriment' in Scorpio. It's dark. It's ruled by Pluto. It's not her favorite place to hang out. We will notice how we use other people's energy and how they use ours. Vampires do not really only come out in the night.

Venus in Scorpio doesn't look like the more traditional beauty of Venus in Libra. Her beauty is dark and forbidding now. She doesn't flirt. She seduces.

She doesn't want peace at any cost so much as she wants to feel what's really underneath all the phony smiles and superficial niceties.

Scorpio rules death and destruction and now this comes through our relationships.

Here Venus pushes herself to the edge of life with compulsions, intimacy, jealousy, obsession and a struggle for real power. She goes into the dark corners that hold all our secrets and she coaxes them out into the open. There can be brutal and deep honesty here.  

Relationships get intense. 

If you are working through the unraveling of a complicated relationship or financial quagmire - this energy will be your best friend. 

Scorpio Suns and Ascendants get more attractive (more beautiful and more able to attract what they want). Your Scorpio house (where is Scorpio hanging out in your natal chart?) gets more attractive, too.

Venus rules love, money and women. Getting what we want with any of them becomes an act of seduction. We need to entice. We need to risk our flaws and shadows being visible.  

Venus in Scorpio knows our need for acceptance will make us invisible, so she risks rejection to be seen.

She doesn't want to be friends - she wants to be soul-mates.

We will feel more "all or nothing" with our passions now. Things can crash and burn here. And for better or worse she isn't afraid to manipulate things to get what she wants (and yes, this, and her obsession with secrets and power will be her downfall).

People will be drawn to what is hidden; to what we don't show them. Keep this in mind if you sell things for a living. Buyers will want to discover things for themselves.

There will be no place for our secrets to hide

(especially women's secrets and love and money secrets and the secrets buried in our natal Scorpio houses).

We draw to us, during Scorpio cycles, what we have not allowed ourselves to acknowledge in ourselves. We'll pay attention to what we attract and see what the person/situation is showing us. There will be lessons about power, playing the victim, jealousy, obsession, compulsion, manipulation, intimacy, truth, other people's money (taxes, loans, spouse's earnings, inheritance, etc), sex, reproduction, life, death and passion.

The Scorpio house in our natal chart is where we need to get real and go deep to have what we want now.

Pluto rules Scorpio and the house of Pluto in our natal chart carries quite a bit of karma and is the space we experience things "outside our control", so it's fitting how much Scorpio likes to be in control.

With Venus in Scorpio, the women will be calling the shots. We'll need to bring our 'A' game ladies. Venus will be in Scorpio until November 1st.

On the same day, Mars (in Libra) is opposing Chiron (in Aries).

Actions/initiative trigger old wounds. With Venus diving into Scorpio at the same time - we probably won't be able to hide from this. Mars is in partnership-ruled Libra - it could be the actions/passions of a partner that hurt us/trigger old, deep wounds or something hurts them and we experience the hurting/healing through their experiences.

On SATURDAY, Venus (in Scorpio now and following Mercury) will oppose a retrograde Uranus (in Taurus).

Maybe the surprising news from earlier in the week is now impacting Venusian themes - our money, our relationships, beauty, women, our values or self-esteem. Not the time for a radical haircut, etc. This could be an unexpected new attraction or we discover something within a relationship/with our money or resources we didn't know. Uranus is liberation. Maybe someone needs their space.

Watch your wallet though - this could be the time of an unexpected expense/purchase. And anytime Venus aspects Uranus I say - buy a lottery ticket!

This opposition can also represent an actual person or group or system with Uranian qualities (think: genius, rebel, criminal) or an Aquarian person or maybe someone we are dealing with through the internet since Uranus rules this space.

At the same time Mercury is trining (brakes off) the North Node.


Here is news/information that points us in a fresh direction. A trine is a 120 degree aspect in astrology. Two planets (or points) are forming one side of a triangle. They are working in harmony, stimulating each other toward increased activity and success.

We want (and always have) some of these in our natal birth chart. They are our subtle super powers. We can't see through a wall, but maybe we can see when someone is bullshitting us. We can't leap tall buildings with a single bound, but maybe we can leap over obstacles without getting mired in indecision.

Or we could think of them like a tool we are carrying in our pack for this lifetime. We need a screwdriver. We pull it out without thinking, we use it, it works, we put it back. It's something that's there. And it's helpful.

Today we have Mercury (communication, conversations, ideas, information) trine the North Node (destiny, our collective way forward).

Forward leaning plans/decisions/deals sealed.

Information revealed. This is that info we hear at exactly the right time. The book we need to read falls off the shelf into our hands. So pay attention now. Be out and about - talk to other people.

Trines are subtle. They don't jump off the shelf and announce themselves, "HEY YOU, yes, you, over here, listen to me!".

They are like that screwdriver. Except this time it's not in the backpack we were given at birth, it's only available to us for a short time - and if we are not paying attention we'll miss it.

The screwdriver will float off to wherever it is screwdrivers go when we don't need them

(partying in the junk drawer with the flash light probably).

Keep your eyes and ears open. What are you thinking about? What plans/decisions are you making? This stuff carries extra weight/importance now. This could also be about a sibling/local community/transportation issue MOVING FORWARD.

On SUNDAY, we have a BIG Full Moon in Aries - squaring Pluto (exactly) and happening with a Grand Water Trine and Grand Cardinal Cross! Expect a BIG post.

Our values are changing this week through intense information and interactions! Hold on loosely.
