October 2006 Sun Signs

Note: These descriptions apply particularly to your sun sign, which is your command center and your basic pathway. However, they also apply to planets in the sign described.

ARIES. November is very much a Mars month, which means you have power and support for your important missions. Partnership is where you find your security now, and with a partner—most likely female—you can create wondrous things as together you work with resources and energy. I think of Aries Al Gore, for instance, whose star will surely continue to rise.

TAURUS. You are getting enormous input from others—everything from affection to arguments to ideas to benefits which open new doors for you. Fixed you are, and mistress of your own fate—but do follow leads from others now. Front and center: establishing a secure foundation. Be open now to dreams coming true; still that eternal skeptic.

GEMINI. This is your month for problem-solving, and working out the solutions to puzzles. Healing old situations—and yourself-- is possible now. You can transform your daily routine to make it more healthy, e.g., add regular exercise and meditation, and quit addictive patterns. Travel would be very enjoyable, perhaps to a place you once called home.

Your creative ventures flow extremely well now—just watch out for overload. Personal boundaries might be a special challenge. A partner can help you to establish necessary limits. Resources flow in, and you are taking very good care of them. A surprising communication from afar may open a new door for you. Illumination from a friend may come with Full Moon.

LEO. You are making all kinds of home improvements. Watch the budget; temptation may get the best of you at times. Best not to make big purchases while Mercury is traveling retrograde from October 28-November 17. Your personal creative power is continually growing. Others may think you a bit harsh, but trust yourself. Romance may be part of your picture.

VIRGO. Your mind is working overtime, but something stored deep in your unconscious is blocking clarity. Inner work on old issues can show results by mid-November. A partner may help to open your mind to new perspectives. Your work situation undergoes unforeseen changes which help you to establish financial security. Full Moon can bring fulfillment of a practical venture.

LIBRA. Home is providing you a new security, perhaps as a special place of opportunity for personal expansion. Money is a major subject this month, along with all the things which have importance for you. They all come and go; recycling is the name of the game. Save major purchases until after Mercury turns direct on November 17. Healing is strong for you this month.

SCORPIO. This is your month, Scorpio, in more ways than one. Desire, growth, opportunity, and faith (!) are yours. Old problematic situations will return, some of them to be resolved now, good timing when you have all this extra power! Mercury’s direct turn on November 17 will free you to move into the future. Work opportunities solidify, and there are surprising developments at home.

SAGITTARIUS. You’re not the type to turn to introspection, but this month is a glaring exception to that pattern. Six, and sometimes seven, of the ten major planets are in your psychic houses. Your dream life may be very active, and situations which you thought long buried may come into your consciousness. You need time alone, time to let buried emotions percolate up.

CAPRICORN. This will be an interesting month. You’re not a group person, but you will have a heavy involvement with groups this month. And part of you will resist, and stand in isolation. You have a lot of savvy in charting your own path, and you can use those groups for your own ends. Finances can make some unpremeditated jumps, but a business partner can hold things steady.

AQUARIUS. Who are you, Aquarius? A healer, a nurturer, and a traveler. A distant star guides your path. You are so busy working on goals that you may not be able to see where you’re going. Plan to be very busy, and to have fun, and to grow immeasurably. Look up at your star once in a while. You have a large public life this month; don’t let it go to your head.

PISCES. You’re feeling your oats, and you’ll get all the support you need to thrust your genius into the world. You own your power in a new way, which means undergoing some very deep release. You undertake new responsibilities at work, which result in career growth. A mentor or teacher can help you to learn and understand new skills. Have fun!
