Written Weekly Astrology 16th October 2017

Aries

Psychic detective skills
Profound healing
Mindblowing sensuality!

Make sure you’ve got a head torch handy this week as you’re about to dive into some pretty bottomless, shadowy, experiences. Mercury, the communicator, is going into your deepest realms and dragging up thoughts and fears that may have been subconsciously blocking your journey. Are you now ready to face them and move on?

On top of that, Mercury is fine-tuning your intuition, and you’re able to see into the furthest corners of other people’s souls. You have a new power searing through you, but wield it wisely, don’t take advantage of the knowledge you glean with your spiritual x-ray eyes.

When Mercury joins forces with lucky Jupiter on the 18th, your new found wisdom can jolt you forward. A profound conversation lights up your path. Aries, you are the warrior of the zodiac, so you don’t like to feel vulnerable, and to be fair, you’re often too busy slaying others’ problems to notice your own fragility.

Be honest, are you hiding your fears, even from yourself? Once you know what you’re dealing with, nothing can stop you from travelling to the next step. With the Sun and Moon opposing Uranus in your sign, as well as a New Moon in your relationship space, you might find yourself wanting to embrace freedom. If you find yourself chomping at the bit to do your own thing and stretch your passion muscles, remember, the Cappuccino is not always hotter on the other side of the street.

The New Moon is giving you the chance of a clean slate. It’s the perfect time to sort out the dynamics you need for your love life to thrive. Mars, your passionate ruler, is also going into this space which inspires you to seek harmony in all your intimate relationships. Having said that, keep your eyes peeled for anyone who tries to disempower you by being passive-aggressive.

In a nutshell – You can spot skullduggery from 100 yards, you’re super psychic this week and also have a mesmerizing charm. Find time to slay your own inner demons.

Ditch the perfectionism

Hopefully, you’ve been very focused on looking after yourself recently, tuning up your health and well being, sorting out bad habits. How are your routines now?

With the Sun and Moon opposing Uranus, the maverick rebel, you might be tempted to run away to a monastery, join a kooky cult or throw yourself into a belief system that’s pie in the sky. It’s great you are opening up to your spirituality, and following your intuition, but keep it grounded. You are longing for ideals at the moment. Mars is giving you excellent willpower and focus, and you can achieve much more than you thought possible this week once you let go of the illusion of perfection.

On a positive note, Mercury goes into your relationship zone and joins forces with fabulous Jupiter to give you a taste of what the next 12 months have to come. Do you believe in love?

Magic and miracles

Whoop! Are you feeling the sweet, sweet tang of lucky Jupiter in your sign? Not yet? This week the planets ramp it up as sociable and articulate Mercury also goes into your sign. Your words are mesmerising, and you can tinge any conversation with your personal agenda. Folk find you compelling, and your crystals of wisdom have even more depth than usual. On the other hand, you’d be wise to pay attention to not only what you say but how you say It. Your thoughts are thrust into other peoples minds and stay there.

Trust the power of your spirit and make beautiful magic with it. Jupiter and Mercury get together to supercharge your potential on the 18th, so make it count. Take at least one leap toward the direction of your dreams.

The New Moon lands in your place of mystery, self-reflection and synchronicity. October means you’re approaching the end of a cycle and heading towards the next adventure. A psychic revelation is on the way, explore it. It’s essential that you pay attention to what your gut is telling you, you know it is rarely wrong.

Avoid escapism or any extremes, take some you time, chill and work with the enchantment that surrounds you.

Sagittarius

Bewitched
Polish your crystal balls
The wild bunch

What sorcery is this? Jupiter is settling into your mystery zone and getting busy bringing you a significant portion of the profound. No matter how practical you are, strange coincidences and spooky experiences surround you. Jupiter wants the best for you and when he joins up with Mercury, make sure you inspect, analyse and make the most of any uncanny event.

Thinking about someone and they pop up? Get on a bus and run into your childhood sweetheart or pondering a career change and see the perfect job advert, pay attention. Prick up your psychic ears, open up your third eye (you can learn to do that here ) and learn to see things in a different way.

The thing about mystery is, well, hey, it’s mysterious! Synchronicity and psychic information are not linear, it’s often an answer wrapped in an enigma swaddled in the unknown. All is not always what it seems, you have to dig deep to work it out. Your intellect isn’t gonna help you find what you’re looking for, you have to trust your inner guru.

The New Moon is delivering the right clan/tribe to support you in the next part of your journey. Is there a gang of people you know you have to leave behind? Is it time for fresh collaborations? The Sun and Moon are opposing Uranus in your pleasure zone, so you might be tempted to hang out with the wild ones. With Mars also entering your community zone there’s plenty of energy for a strong team.

In a nutshell – Magic is in the air, so be very careful what you twitch your nose at! You’re a magic magnet and travel down unusual routes this week. Pay attention, don’t dismiss the strangeness!

Capricorn

Team leader
The Universe is cheering you on
Meet a new gang

Juicy Jupiter is starting to flex his biceps in your social zone. This week you have a unicorn of an opportunity to convince a group of the importance of your ideas. You’re as close to going viral as possible, but of course, it’s up to you what you want to seed and spread. There sure is power in numbers right now, and you’re an influencer as well as a team player.

Mercury the wordsmith is joining forces with lucky Jupiter to bring about a pivotal moment. The more you surround yourself with the right clan, the further you’ll go. Reach out and connect, network and have faith knowing you are an important, unique, part of the whole.

Cappy, you love to succeed, and what most people don’t get is all the hard work you put in the background. You are not one to sit on your bum and wait for the dreams to come to you, you stubbornly and persistently plan how to get there. Thankfully, much of your slog is about to pay off. A New Moon is catapulting you to the next level, having said that, you also have to be a brave heart and chuck out what is no longer working. If you find yourself in an awkward position between family and career, think it through before you savage the opposition. Yes, Mars is making you tenacious, determined and focused, but take timeout to get in tune with your empathy and love for those around you. The smallest amount of attention is a treasure to those that adore you.

In a nutshell – Galvanise yourself into action as important folk are watching. Show the Universe what you’ve got. The New Moon is bringing a fresh career cycle and the game is on.

The New Moon is hitting your adventure zone on the 19th.

You’re unpredictable, daring and audacious and your wild one is out and proud. Remember the difference between rebellion and recklessness, keep yourself safe.

In a nutshell – Your unconventional side is bringing you a gift this week. Express your maverick side but also focus on impressing others with your brilliance. It’s time to believe in you and go for it.

Pisces

Unleash your intensity
Lust is banging on your window
Take the road less travelled

Wow! It’s going to be intense! At the beginning of the week, you’re feeling feisty and wild, and your inner banshee is more than happy to yell the truth and express what’s on your mind. Get used to it, for the next year you are fuelled by a desire to be free. You aren’t in the mood to take any bull ca-ca and will call people out who are inauthentic. Although you’ll always be a sensitive empath, your healing takes a feral path! Jupiter is showing you how to be fishy revolutionary, and you’ll love it. Like any new skill, you might find yourself falling off your truth seahorse as you navigate towards openness. Hone your honesty monster so that she can combine with your kindness.

The New Moon in your primal zone on the 19th is generating some pretty profound desires. You are letting go of insecurity, embracing your sensuality and reclaiming your she-wolf within. Keep your wits about you, experience your instincts as your very own spiritual google. Nothing escapes you but avoid letting this stoke paranoia, don’t make assumptions but ferret out the truth one step at a time. When Mars enters the same raw and saucy space your desire is on fire, temptation is lurking and you want to dive deep.

In a nutshell – Secrets, temptations, obsessions and confessions make this a full on week. The key to this is owning your power, trusting your senses and letting go of fear.
