Week of October 16, 2017
Mercury strides into Scorpio this week where it joins Jupiter. This wonderful infusion of abundance and communication are a boon to all water signs but most especially Scorpios. Mercury is the planet that represents communication and connection. Scorpios are known for their innate ability to delve deeply into subjects that may be off bounds to others. Deep, complex, and mysterious, this combination highlights these characteristics in the most auspicious manner. Nonetheless this influence will occur in each of our lives in some capacity, and not simply to Scorpios. We all have an area of our lives where this influence will play out, so it is important to understand your own personal roadmap and how this alignment plays in your favor. We all are born at a point in time and that event carries with it our potential; our assets and our liabilities. To understand this and use these aspects to your best interest is the essence of astrology. Timing is truly everything. To get a more accurate idea of the precision and details in your life contact me at email@example.com or any professional astrologer.
Further on in the week we witness a new Moon in Libra. Occurring once a month, new Moons carry the potential for a clean slate. With that in mind we should ask ourselves how can we use this energy to shift our mindset, our habits, and our priorities. Nothing dramatic need occur, but being mindful of the potential for a fresh start can be invigorating and expansive, especially since the current line-up of planets includes the aforementioned Mercury and Jupiter, but also the new Moon which also implies the presence of the Sun. Together these planetary connections offer up a moment of optimism, hope and diplomacy. How these impact your life is also based on the position and construction of your own personal journey. We are in a time of radical change that has many of us wondering if this is a turning point. The astrology of the times and the path forward do signal a time departure from our past patterns. This is exactly as it should be. The hardship and turmoil we see is the necessary evolution of our planet. Though dark it may appear, we also know that these times are followed by growth.
