For All Signs:  Today (Oct. 24) we have a significant Full Moon at 12:45 pm EDT.  It is in the sign of Taurus, on top of Uranus and opposite to a retrograding Venus.  This suggests troubles in relationships, especially those that share resources.  The best we can do under these circumstances is to recognize that secrecy is destructive.  Its antidote is honesty, so we would do well to open up to a discussion of our shared resources (time, energy, and money).  We need clarity of intention from both sides if we are to deal with these issues constructively.  The temptation is to lie or avoid confrontation.  If this is your choice, just know this is not the end of the matter.  It will surface again.  We can’t hide from this Full Moon.

Aries:  A project which began in late March needs your attention again.  It has to do with your career or life direction.  It may involve something mechanical.  The initiation was a challenge and now you must proceed to the next step or let it go.  You don’t always have to go it alone.  You might consider asking for help.

Taurus:  Give special attention to the lead paragraph about the Full Moon in your sign.  Issues with partner(s) that involve shared resources began in September and may not yet be smoothed out.  Sometimes it takes several episodes to confront and clarify a long-term issue.

Gemini:   Think carefully about what is truly important to you now, at this time in your life.  Don’t allow old habits or rules from the past to make your decision for you.  If you do let that happen, you will truly resent the outcome.  Rise above your circumstances to a level that can see beyond your ego and the situation becomes more workable.

Cancer:  This week you may be feeling stress related to your lover or a partner, maybe a child.  Underneath it all, the issue is tied to your internalized sense of what a woman “should” do or be.  Our culture has always struggled with images of the feminine.  Is she a caretaker or a seductress?

Leo:  Concerns this week are connected to issues of home, hearth, and family.  This may include family of origin.  You want to be independent of baggage, yet there it is and it isn’t likely to go away without your assistance.  Someone from the past may contact you which triggers your concerns.

Virgo: You have a desire to reach outward to others.  You want to share ideas and express yourself in a larger framework. Circumstances on the social front are favorable with one or more who share intellectual interests.  Activities involving teaching/learning are favored, along with good aspects for travel.

Libra: You may happen into an issue on this Full Moon that you did not previously know about.  If you share resources with one or more other persons, now is the time that problems may surface.  If they don’t, then you can rest assured they are probably not there.  The problem may be within yourself, as a conflict about your feelings regarding sharing and spending.

Scorpio the Phoenix:  (Oct. 23 — Nov 20)  Your reflexes are still off kilter, so be extra cautious while driving and handling tools.  Minor accidents are possible.  In another sense, you are putting on the gas and the accelerator at the same time, which keeps you in a state of static tension.  The message is:  slow down for the good of yourself and others.

Sagittarius:  You have been concentrating on strengthening your inner self for about a year.  You may have been on some kind of sabbatical while you do that.  You can sense that you are about to rise out of this project and shift attention to the outer world.  Perhaps you are involved now in reviewing the progress of the last few months before you move beyond it.

Capricorn:  You have a steady mind and hands now.  It is a good time to work on a project that requires concentration and careful work.  You will find satisfaction this week with the routine activities of life.  There may be a financial issue on your radar that needs to be tended.  Do it now before it gets bigger.

Aquarius:  You are caught in a Mars/Saturn trap for the present.  Saturn keeps you in the background and unable to climb out of your hole. It is like the brakes of a car.  Mars, which is represented by the accelerator is straining to pull you out.  At present Saturn is too heavy to drag into the light of day.  Time will be of great help.

Pisces:  You may have fortunate circumstances related to the internet, travel, and publishing.  Help and information comes from those at a distance.  You may be considering bringing a conclusion to a long-term project in study or teaching.  It isn’t “time” to finalize that decision, but you are circling around it now.  Wait until you feel settled about it before taking action.
