Lunations and Long-term Aspects

The New Moon this month is on October 4 in Libra, your 3rd house of thoughts, ideas, siblings, neighbors and local travel which implies something new coming your way in this part of your life.  In spite of the rather ominous transits out there which include for this lunation a T-square comprising the Sun and bad boys Uranus and Pluto, Fire Signs are in a slightly better position since these aspects look as if they'll bring opportunities to you.  If your birthday is right around August 3 - 4 you are particularly positioned to use this energy to advantage.  A new bit of information could bring a sudden change in your beliefs, expectations or attitude that sets you on a new path to prosperity.  Mars is in your Sign, providing energy and drive to pursue what you want, even though there is a chance you'll encounter some resistance from the homefront.  Nonetheless, naysayers can be useful when they point out the alligators in the water because then you can figure out how to avoid them.  Taking control is favored, especially as it relates to your job situation.  Increased discipline can bring a change of course or direction which will further fuel your determination, but this is not to say there won't be obstacles.

If you're not satisfied where you are and know that you were meant for a lot more than you currently enjoy, maintain that vision along with the courage to do whatever it takes to get there.  New beginnings and leaving a questionable past behind are always possible but they always start with an idea and this is the time to figure out what it is.  Be sure to take the time to nurture your thought process in whatever form that takes for you whether it's quiet time alone or brainstorming with friends and family.  Step back from your usual routine and think about how you want things to be versus how they are, unless you are already deliriously happy with the status quo.  Of course being happy is the first step to attracting what you want but it doesn't mean you don't want to move forward toward something even better.  Take the time to do some daydreaming and figure out what it is.

The Full Moon on October 18 is also a lunar eclipse which increases its staying power beyond the time period typical for lunations.  This one occurs in fellow Fire Sign, Aries, and trine your natal Sun if your birthday is right around August 18.  Mars has moved into Virgo, your money house, which is generally a good place for him provided you put his energy to work where you want it.  Otherwise he may start attacking your possessions and causing breakdowns and such.  Be a little cautious in this regard, especially if something does bite the dust and require replacement.  Neptune is in your 8th house for the long haul and is currently being opposed by Mars which could have unfavorable implications for your debt load.  Neptune does a great job of fueling your imagination but he's also capable of deception.  The 8th house has a bad reputation as houses go since it includes intense experiences such as death and transformations in general along with sex, debt, shared resources, and inheritances.  On the positive side he brings a spiritual element to this part of your life and until you can visualize what you want you're not going to get it.  This opposition implies the need for balance between your finances and fantasies and to make sure you're on solid ground before doing anything rash that involves money.

Nonetheless, a clear vision of where you want to go is beginning to take shape and point toward a new beginning or cycle.  Think of this as a work in progress, however, and currently in the planning stage.  Responsibilities at home must be met even though you may be able to use your creativity and do so in a unique way.  Look at different ways of doing so without worrying what others may think other than those in your immediate household.  Your creativity should blossom at this time and also lure you toward new territory but the time to actually move forward is not quite here.  This is due to the fact that Mercury is in the process of stationing retrograde, that annoying phenomenon that occurs approximately three times a year and yes, we're due for it again starting October 21.

Changing your status is something that will not happen overnight.  Mercury retrograde is favorable for rethinking, redoing, reconsidering, revising and reviewing but not so good for starting a new project.  It's good for perfecting and finishing up something already in work by making sure everything is in its proper order.  It's also favorable for reviewing any plans or aspirations.  New endeavors begun when Mercury is retrograde seldom pan out.  So, depending on your circumstances, think about finishing up something you already have in-work or reconsidering and revising your current brainstorm before plunging ahead with either your heart or wallet in hand.  Mercury stations direct on November 9 but the shadow period, after which you can definitely expect a new start, doesn't come until November 28.  Use this time to get all your ducks in a row at the starting line rather than jumping the gun which is only going to be a false start.

Does Astrology Work?

Will your career take off next year?  Will your love life improve if you move to Denver?  Are you and your latest flame a good match?  When will you finally sell your house?

Right, wrong or indifferent, millions seek answers through astrology.  The advent of computers and the Internet has made astrological interpretations and predictions not only available but comfortably private for a reasonable price.  While a personalized natal reading from a professional astrologer may cost between $150 - $300 USD, computerized reports are often available for free or as little as $10. 

Are they as good as a personalized reading?  No, but certainly better than nothing if itís all you can afford.  However, itís important to recognize their limitations as well as be aware of other astrological techniques available through a professional astrologer. 

Anyone hooked on computerized reports has probably not found what they were looking for in a certain report at least once.  This brief yet comprehensive guide describes several types of computerized reports typically available online, what information each will usually provide as well as its inherent limitations.  It also includes descriptions of some unique astrological readings for which computerized versions may not be available but can be provided through a trained professional.  Also included is a handy table that directs you to which report you need for what.
