Volume 22, October 2007

Welcome to October. September was a very tense month. Adjusting to Saturn’s residency in Virgo has taken its toll. People I’ve been talking to have been quite stressed. Our plates are full now with the new demands of Virgo – to clean up our acts. Thank goodness for Virgo or we’d have a real mess, eh? This month is highlighted by the Jupiter square with Uranus that will give us quite a boost. These two planets work very well together. They will encourage us to feel good about our attitudes of growth (Jupiter). We will feel more confident about our desires to get out from under repressive or limiting situations (Uranus.) I hope you all have a wonderful month!

Librans of Interest and Astrological Musings…







October won’t be simple, but it must be some relief from the flat-out weirdness of the latest changes: with Saturn now in Virgo, the recently aggravating Mars opposition to Pluto, and the heavy-duty 9/11 Solar Eclipse. Whew! Things are going to be greatly highlighted by the October 9th Jupiter square (right angle) to Uranus. Even though we’re collectively experiencing the practical demands of Saturn in Virgo and awaiting the epic promises of Pluto’s entrance into Capricorn in January of 2008, this month’s Jupiter-Uranus square will give us quite a needed lift! Jupiter is the encourager and Uranus the liberator. It doesn’t take a genius to see how these two will mix! Below is an itemized description of how I see this affecting each sign for months and months to come


Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)  The collective has been encouraging you for months or even years now to go for it. Now a powerfully instinctive voice says, “Yes!” This is time to own your instincts – that’s your real power anyway. Let others think before they leap – not you. You’re hunches have been right all along. The time is ripe to travel and seek new lands and frontiers to quench your pioneering thirst. Shake off the dust, pack the backpacks, and blaze a new trail! It might even be back to school for you now, regardless of your age.


Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) Your conservative, cautious, steady-as-she-goes nature is going to need to take a backseat right now. You’re seeing clearly now how you’re going to have to have to spend some money in order to make money and money is the name of the game for many Taureans, right? More likely, it’s about physical security. Nevertheless, you will be encouraged and feel good about picking up the speed in your life. Others will be quite supportive of you too – they love the cooking aromas from your kitchen for sure! Heck, you might even move your recliner a foot or two left or right.


Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) Career or relationship? Relationship or career? Heck, this is GEMINI we’re talking about here. You can have BOTH! Tremendous optimism gets released here as partners back up your job plans and you’re able to go forward with one for each - one for each Twin. The time is ripe to find a partner who is supportive of your adventurous, explorative plans! You will also be encouraged to socialize with fellow workers, but who am I to rain on your parade? Seldom has there been a period where you will feel so good about your career and your love life. Spread your natural easy-going charm all around and leave the fuddy-duddies behind!


Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) For the longest time now, you’ve been feeling inspired and creative. You’ve been trying to tell everyone just how great your ideas are, but they haven’t been listening. I guess we’re going to have to operate!? No, now is the time to let ‘er rip, let your fellow workers know of your plans. Your optimism and can-do attitude is catchy now. You’re greatly encouraged now to learn new skills, ones that will serve you well, especially hi-tech ones. Family members are surprised by your new independent, headstrong attitude.


Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) Now is the time to bring out your fire. “Here Comes the Sun,” right? Ask the milder souls to please step aside for a moment. Sticky relationships have abounded for you the past two years. Now is your chance to let your natural buoyancy lift you out of your torpor. You’re light is shining so brightly now you won’t even need sun-screen! This configuration is akin to a solar flare – one right down your alley. Let your confidence roar now and take over. That’s what others are waiting for anyway. “Put ‘em up, put ‘em up!” - you’re first to see the Wizard, right?


Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22) My goodness. You’re actually going to put down your power tools and go out and have some fun?! That’s great! You’re family has been needing you for a long time. Like I’ve said, no one is following you with a clipboard keeping track of your “mistakes” other than you. It’s time to RELAX and have some FUN! Virgo’s are great people. Let your hair down some now and enjoy the real individuals in your family. Look beyond the “provider” role you so aptly fulfill and feed the soul.


Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22) You’re finally getting the gumption to break free of your work. Now is the time to explore and feel good about expanding your skill set. Possibly the brightest overall sign of the zodiac, Libra needs to go for the gusto in terms of their career. Never one to miss a beat, however, Libra often waits too long for the tide to be perfect. Now is not the time for that – tis the time to use your facile mind to guide you to a new vista in the work place. You’re in great demand now, parlay that into new opportunities for yourself. The doors will open, but you do need to nudge them a bit.


Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21) Oh boy, I can see it coming. Scorps are going to go out and spend some big money! There’s no two ways about. You have the passion and you have the need and who cares if you don’t have the mula? Jupiter is really inspiring you now to take the chance. Restraint is restraint and now is not its time! Go for it, you’ll figure out a way to pay for it later. On a more humanistic side of things, your well-being is springing forth unlike all the goop its been sloshing through since the summer of 2005. Take yourself to the spa and pamper yourself. Take the leap of faith – you’re just too cool to be denied now!


Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) Now this one is getting downright ridiculous. How does one tell a Sagittarian to have MORE FUN? Do you think they’ll listen? I mean the merry-go-round can only go so fast! This is an absolutely exceptional time for you. Everything lifts off - you’re clicking on all gears. If you have been trying to get past some yucky old emotional garbage, now’s the time to leave it in the dustpan. Everybody loves Sag, right? (Yes, Ray Romano is a Sag too.) G’head, run for office, ask for a raise, walk the tight-rope, balance an egg on end – do anything you want now. Things are so much in your favor that the hardest thing you’re going to have to do now is to keep from being scattered to the four winds. But who cares? You could have fun flying a kite.


Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) My God, did you hear that? Even the crusty Old Goat is getting in on the fun. Caps are thinking outside the box now and aren’t even afraid of being reprimanded! A sense of well-being is rising from below and they are taking to speaking their own mind. Imagine that. The carefree Careful One. Great news. You really do need to see that you don’t always have everything figured out; that the old tried-and-true methods aren’t always the best, and sometimes a creative mental fling is exactly what you need. Keep some smelling salts on hand for the loved ones near you that are going to pass out when they see you on your new Harley.


Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) Would you go see, “Thelma and Louise Part II”? I mean, I don’t know exactly how they’d explain that one, do you? But what I see here is exactly that. Get your best pals together and go for it. Burning Man, The Isle of Man, A Blue Man Concert, Man-o-man. The natural Aquarian urges are greatly enhanced by this Jupiter square to Uranus and it’s clearly time to lift off from any remaining restraints. Go after what you’ve longed for. Don’t hesitate anymore. Leave the Muggles to the Muggleworld. It is not of your making. Lift that lawn chair off the ground with loads of helium balloons. Yes.


Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) Finally, well, some sign has to be last and isn’t it always Pisces – as it should be – the best for last. You’ve had a lot of pressure on you recently from Saturn’s ingress into Virgo pressuring you to get it together on the job front. But, all of a sudden, who cares about earthly reality? Well, do be careful here – O Lords of the Mirage. If you walk out of the job place, make sure it’s not a plank you’re walking onto. Things might get carried away now as you eye that castle in the sky! Get inspired, yes, follow your bountiful faith, yes, take your place among the stars now, but do keep a tiny thread attached so you can find your way back home. It’s a wonderful time now, but don’t create a new bubble to live in, only one month after Saturn burst the last one. We’re going to have to have a talk.






Next month we ask Kid Astro: Are we in “The Age of Aquarius, or what?”
