Daily Horoscope Monday 8 October

Today’s Moonwatcher:

This week starts with no moonlight; we are in the Balsamic phase, the most reflective phase of the monthly lunar cycle.

So, this is an important time to literally reflect and not push anything forward, let all reactions and responses wash over you, until the new moon.

The Moon is currently in Libra which is the sign of coupling and two-ness. This suggests that confiding with a friend might be a nice thing to do, or being socially interactive.

However it might also be a good time to spend some time on your own and instead ‘make contact’ with your creative self, your muse, in order to reflect on all that has been happening recently. This is possibly the best way to find a balance at this current time.

12noon – 15:30 Moon aspects Jupiter: Emotionally deep and searching for meaning of changes. Understanding your mood. Finding the faith for transformation.

13:00 – 16:30 Moon aspects Mars: This is great for a motivational boost, drive across a message, state an opinion, assert yourself positively.

18:00 – 19:00 Moon aspects Venus: Be sweet, be charming, subtly get things done your way.

Today’s Planet-2-Planet:

One of the core themes of this week is the upcoming tense aspect between Venus planet of love, against Mars planet of desire.

It’s gradually intensifying and peaks on Wednesday evening.

Whenever these two meet you can expect sexual fireworks of some kind or other!

Venus in Scorpio square Mars in Aquarius (builds through to Wednesday & peaks Wednesday night)

The planet of love and attraction (Venus) is tensely blocked (the square) by the planet of desire and goals (Mars).

Both Venus and Mars are in ‘fixed’ signs which mean sustaining and solidity; neither planet wants to give up on a thing.

This likely results with a sense of doubling down on a relationship issue.

In circumstances there may well be a situation that is hard worn or full of tension, it is still difficult to let go.

What to look out for:
– discordant tension between two people
– hidden tension coming to the surface
– a blatant physical attraction that isn’t well tempered.
– obstacles to social or sexual satisfaction

The best things to do [with this moment in time]:
– be calm, honest & direct to constructively build a better relationship
– have a competitive game with friends
– be determined to find compromises and solutions
– use effort and skill to create a social gathering, mix music and dancing

The things to avoid [with this moment in time]:
– avoid impatient or aggressive action
– avoid frustration or broodiness as it can be destructive
– be careful of impulsive demands that can create volatile situations
– ego tension can create critical rejection

Your Sun sign today:

Aries:One of your friends is bringing up some deeply personal issues that maybe a little sensitive; however getting things into the open can avoid frustrations and make for a harmonious outcome.

Taurus:A partner is challenging you over your career direction; there’s been quite a lot of revising going on and now you need to set a new path that’s harmonious.

Gemini:You’re improving relationships with people you work with but there’s a point of view which you have held onto for a while which makes frustrating and annoying exchanges. Try to harmonize.

Cancer:You’ve been feeling romance and love and happy to express it but there’s a challenge in that some form of action has to be taken to make changes before harmony can be achieved.

Leo:You’re enjoying home and domestic bliss but a close partner is getting increasingly frustrated and wants some sort of action oriented response when all you want is a good time.

Virgo:Love and romance is on your mind and you’re thinking of ways to impress someone you work with or someone you’ve seen at the gym. It’s a good time to strike up some witty banter and see if the sparks fly.

Libra:A creative new activity has got you fuelled up and you want to spend more time and money investing in it. Try not to spend too much on new gear.

Scorpio:A pleasant and charming approach is challenged by tensions and frustrations at home. You have to try and keep some sort of balance between your individual requirements and family issues.

Sagittarius:Secret loves and feelings could be expressed as angry words which is not your intention. Try to instead keep the peace by finding a quiet retreat space to keep your inner world harmonious.

Capricorn:You’d like life to be one big party and social event but there’s something about your available resources or how you spend your money that holds you back and gets you frustrated.

Aquarius:You just want to be you right now but other people are expecting you to behave a certain way. Find a balance in what you want and what others want.

Pisces:Someone from outside your usual circle is stirring things up and getting under your skin; try to avoid changing your plan of action too much and just go with the flow.

Daily Horoscope Tuesday 9 October

Today’s Moonwatcher:

03:47am: The New Moon in Libra, which sets the tone for the month ahead.

Social justice will be large on the agenda, and a lot of placating will be needed.

Finding harmony, peace and balance will be the necessary theme.

The sometime overwhelming urge to make a change (in a relationship or partnership) will need to be kept in check, as Venus the planet of relationships and love is in reverse all month, and therefore ending something now is most unwise.

The same can be said for starting a relationship now, try not to be so hasty! Bide your time. You’ll be glad you did later on.

06:00am – 08:50am Moon aspects Pluto: honestly a lot of people might wish they hadn’t woken up this morning!

Possibly very tough responses and reactions to bring up the worst, but healing, change and transformation is possible.

Easier to let go of difficult thoughts after 09:00am.

16:00 to 17:20 Moon aspects Jupiter: this is a mild nudge to remind you that change begins with understanding the situation.

A deep search into emotion and feeling, and relating that to the world around you.

Today’s Planet-2-Planet:

Today is new moon phase in the air sign of Libra, the balance and the scales of fairness.

Soon you can be on the lookout for a thin bright crescent moon appearing in the sky.

New moons are the perfect time to begin a project or initiate a new beginning; in Libra the focus will be on relationships, partnerships or doing something creative.

The things to avoid [with this lunar cycle]:
– indecision or inconstancy
– a passive-aggressive urgency
– deceit or superficiality
– vanity or conceit

Your Sun sign today:

Aries:You can see how your independent and assertive stance distances you from people who would rather be close to you; find a balance to satisfy everyone’s needs.

Taurus:Diplomatic moves help to improve relationships with co-workers or employees, even if it means making small adjustments to your usual approach.

Gemini:Keeping fun and good times as a top priority helps to offset any serious matters; children start to play an important role.

Virgo:You’re pretty clear with yourself about what you can indulge in and splash out on, and what’s off limits, at least until later.

Scorpio:There’s a lot going on behind the scenes that sees you quite happy to withdraw and contemplate before making your next move.

Sagittarius:You’ve got a lot of future plans that need expressing with charm and tact, rather than bluntness.

Capricorn:Your life direction and ambitions are highlighted; being polite is a necessity even though you might just want to get on with the task ahead.

Use this time to be careful and through in your work this morning.

17:30 – 22:30 Moon aspects Mars & Venus: A statement like “Was it something I said?” will be echoing around the land as the Moon activates a very tense alignment of the two relationship planets.

Be prepared for short fuses, intense reactions, trigger hair responses and some pretty stuck-in-the-mud situations.

Today’s Planet-2-Planet:

Mercury the planet of thinking makes a rare alignment to Uranus planet of spontaneity indicating that we’re in the balance with our thoughts, there’s a decision this way…and there’s the other way.

Mercury in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus(peaks at 17:36)

Libra:Straight up talking about what’s on your mind and the changes that you need to make will help; find someone who got a good ear to listen to you.

Scorpio:First impressions have always been important haven’t they? A decision to try to not let unreliable relationships bother you is made today.

20:00 – 23:15 Moon aspects Jupiter: this is a deep emotional connection, that has opportunities to dig up stuff, for healing and expanding.
