The mood of the public could shift after peace-seeking Venus
enters ethical Sagittarius on Friday and fact-finding Mercury dons Scorpio's
detective gear on Saturday. However, it is glamour and artistry, not truthfulness,
that'll take center stage while the Libra sun favors imaginative, idealistic
Neptune this weekend. Revolutionary, or at least innovative, Uranus becomes
the fulcrum we gravitate to midweek, when it captures the attention of Mercury
and Venus, plus all the signs they rule.


The recent shift of the personal planets, especially Mars' flip into retrograde,
can have an impact on what you perceive to be “progress.” Venus in
fiery Sagittarius may be a blessing in disguise, since the goddess is gearing
up to bestow a blessing of some kind on you – if not an impressive gift, then
perhaps someone worth cherishing. Nosy Mercury, in Scorpio as of the 8th, is
busily searching for valuable information about a financial matter that should
be revealed when the Messenger opposes your Mars ruler around the 22nd.


The struggle you've been quietly going through, as exemplified by your Venus
ruler's opposition to militant Mars, is over. Today, Venus moves out of Scorpio,
the sign of your more significant significant others, and prances through footloose,
fancy-free, philosophical Sagittarius until Guy Fawkes Day. Evidence that your
feelings have changed could show up when sparks between Venus and rebellious
Uranus are ignited next weekend. But you don't have to burn down Parliament
to convince the world that you're committed to your ideals.


So much for the “fair and balanced” Libra attitude. Once your Mercury
ruler enters Scorpio on Saturday, you're likely to become much more intense
about how you are feeling and what you are thinking. That Mercury is treading
the fine line between appreciation and application, between your fifth house
of pleasure and sixth house of service, can complicate matters and make decisions
that much harder to reach. But, once you do, the stubborn Scorpionic attitude
could keep you from changing your mind, even when the facts suggest otherwise.


Moon Children born in June might surprise themselves with their acute observations
and innovative ideas. That's because mercurial Mercury in watery Scorpio tends
to uncover hidden information, while electrical Uranus in watery Pisces creates
random flashes of brilliance. Since Mercury, like time, is fleeting, these thoughts
may be gone before you have a chance to act on them, let alone write them down.
The Aries full-moon eclipse on the 17th occurs in every Crab's career zone;
if you sense a change coming, now would be the time to update your resum??.


Leos are such romantics, such pure-hearted folks, that you may misinterpret
the message being conveyed when nebulous Neptune in your marriage house favors
your sun ruler this weekend. Before you go any further, be sure to clarify what
you understand to be true. If you need to feel more sure of yourself, bide your
time until loving Venus in Sagittarius supports Saturn in your sign on the 16th.
That's also a good time to invest in a high-end product that can provide years
of pleasure and satisfaction. See, Saturn isn't all bad.


You might be in for one surprise after another as first your curious Mercury
ruler, and then amenable Venus, reach out to erratic, erotic Uranus in your
Pisces house of partners. No matter what you learn or how you react, try to
keep the lines of communication open and your position fairly flexible. This
could be easier said than done while Mercury transits Scorpio, a firmly fixed
sign, for the rest of the month. The lunar eclipse across your money axis on
the 17th should confirm the sneaky suspicion you had at the solar eclipse on
the 3rd.


Things could lighten up considerably now that your Venus ruler is in bright
and bushy-tailed Sagittarius, where she can party like a (well-bred) animal.
Although the Libra sun might receive mixed messages this weekend from dreamy
Neptune in your house of romance and other entertainments, the ensuing ambiguity
could inspire a wave of creativity and self-expression. If a change of heart
follows shortly thereafter, chalk it up to Venus and your relationship with
a bona fide eccentric who has found a place in your heart.


Your annual infusion of common sense and critical acuity arrives with the entrance
of Mercury into Scorpio on the 8th. Be glad that Mercury's talent for discerning
the difference between fabulous and fatuous will be very much with you while
you create your Halloween costume and make plans for this year's celebration.
However, on the big night itself, Mercury will have moved on, no doubt taking
your better judgment with it. Happily, protective, prosperous Jupiter enters
your sign on the 25th for 13 months of supreme good fortune.


Sociable Venus establishing residence in your sign means that the party season
has begun. One of the gifts the goddess offers while she's around is an ability
to turn you, like Cinderella, into a more attractive, more popular character.
Better get a fashionable new look ASAP, because, like the stroke of midnight,
November 5 will arrive sooner than you think, and Venus will be gone. But not
until she shakes things up at your house by provoking disruptive Uranus just
before the full-moon eclipse on the 17th.


Untouched by human hands. Well, not until the 16th, when affectionate Venus
gives your Saturn ruler a heartfelt hug a few hours before the lunar eclipse
Monday morning. That weekend is also when you might want to check out a livelier
social scene, or when you're liable to look more kindly on a restrictive partnership
arrangement. And while no one is acting contrite, both parties could be searching
for a more creative solution to the problem, e.g., asking for a mediator's suggestion,
a mutual friend's contribution.


Finally, the mystical, magical Water Bearer rises, like the Lady of the Lake,
from the depths of wherever Neptune has been hiding you. Thank the literate
Libra sun for shining light and levity on vaporous Neptune in your sign. Whether
you want the spotlight on you is another matter altogether; nonetheless, it's
there for the taking. How much will it aggravate your employer, embarrass your
parents or annoy the authorities? It depends on how well you word your message
and the extent of your popularity.


Check out the Aquarius forecast, since it's your Neptune ruler that's attracting
so much attention. However, when it comes to your personal life and the changes
you're going through, innovative Uranus in your sign is to blame. Or, if you're
enjoying breaking new ground and winging it, to thank. While ideas and conversations
will flow freely once Mercury is in watery Scorpio, a romantic relationship
or a friendship might encounter interference when Venus squares Uranus and tests
the new criteria, or lack thereof.
