Suppressed Desires -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Oct. 17th - Sun., Oct. 23rd, 2016

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Daylight Savings Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week was mellow and... dare I say it?... ideal. I effortlessly got everything done I needed to -- and I still was able to socialize -- and take care of myself really well on top of all of that. It felt very much connected to that Mars/Neptune sextile from last week.

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have one quick announcement: 
Last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM, live on TuesdayOct. 18th at 3pm PDT/6pm EDT/11pm BST(London-time). Please note that we just had a Super Moon/Full Moon in Aries, Mars will conjunct Pluto and square Uranus mid - late October, and a Neptune Station coming up in November! If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here 

This week's headline items: Venus changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Tuesday; Mars aligns with Pluto in Capricorn on Wednesday; on Saturday, the last Quarter Moon becomes exact and the Sun changes signs from Libra to Scorpio. 

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday late morning (for almost 24 hours), Thursday morning (for a little over 4 hours), and Saturday afternoon (for 20 minutes).

Monday (October 17th): the Moon remainsin steady, peacefulTaurus all day; it will be there until Tuesday late morning. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and "rushing things" goes against our grain. 

What is our favorite thing right now? It's probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses ;-) 

Monday at 10:47am EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 24 hours, until 10:30am EDT (Tuesday late morning). This is an intuitive time; use it to transform business partnerships and form realistic financial goals. This is also a good time for making concrete plans for the future. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan most of Monday and Tuesday morning ahead of time ;-)

Monday all day and Tuesday before 5pm EDT is your last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM -- live on TuesdayOct. 18th at 3pm PDT/6pm EDT/11pm BST(London-time). Please note that we just had a Super Moon/Full Moon in Aries, Mars will conjunct Pluto and square Uranus mid - late October, and a Neptune Station coming up in November! If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

If you would like to join live, please keep in mind that registration will close an hour before the live event begins, if you register after 5pm EDT on Tuesday you will receive the mp4-video recording of the webinar.

Tuesday (Oct. 18th): theMoon remainsin steady, peaceful Taurus and VoC until 10:30am EDT (see Monday for details).

Tuesday early morning at 3:01am EDT, Venus changes signs from intense, all-or-nothing Scorpio to adventurous, freedom-loving Sagittarius. It will journey there until Nov. 11th; until then, we feel more social, and inclined especially to connect to people from different backgrounds and countries. We like to explore new things, whether food or social gatherings: if it's exotic, it's great! 

We are more likely to take some risks now with others, and to say what's on our mind. Our relationships need to be connected to adventure -- a trip might be just the thing. Getting away from our routines and exploring life... hey, why not? :-)

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra? If so, you will feel more adventurous and spontaneous for the next 4 weeks; your heart will want to explore new things and get a new perspective on life. If you are a Sagittarius Sun-sign or Rising-sign, for as long as Venus is in your sign, you will attract more love, abundance and beauty into your life.

Tuesday at 10:30am EDT, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will journey until Thursday late morning. For the next two days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. 

"Busy" feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way...The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead :-) 

Tuesday is also your very last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM -- live on TuesdayOct. 18th at 3pm PDT/6pm EDT/11pm BST(London-time). Please note that we just had a Super Moon/Full Moon in Aries, Mars will conjunct Pluto and square Uranus mid - late October, and a Neptune Station coming up in November! If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

Wednesday (Oct. 19th): the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Tuesday late morning for details).

Wednesday morning, a Mars/Pluto alignment in 15 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 7:22am EDT.We started to feel this aspect from last Friday evening on, it will be strong until this Sunday evening. This alignment connects our personal will to the Universal Will. If we feel the need to connect to something, we will feel it passionately, especially when it comes to our long-term goals and our public image. 

We may feel impatient (or even obsessive) right now about our career goals. Suppressed desires surface; we will need to take actions on them, one way or another.

If you are able to connect -- body and soul -- to that passion, you will be able to move towards a much higher goal. This may be a goal that is truthfully connected to the whole of you, perhaps even to your Soul Purpose for this lifetime. Mars last aligned with Pluto in mid November of 2014; unresolved issues from that period can now move to the next level. What were you up to back then?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in 12-18 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries? If so, you will feel the effects of this aspect more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Scorpio (Mars is the ruler of Aries, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Mars's movements and aspects; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio, so they likewise feel Pluto's movements and aspects more strongly)

Wednesday afternoon, a somewhat challenging Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 4:02pm EDT.We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday night on, it will be strong until Thursday. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward -- and we need to make a choice… so we need to develop inner awareness.

This boils down to feeling "stumped" -- we feel like we can't get our head around things, or make decisions.  As best as you can, be kind and compassionate to yourself. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-23 degrees of Libra or Pisces? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo)

Thursday (Oct. 20th): the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini until 11:28am EDT (see Tuesday late morning for details).

Thursday early morning, a Mercury/Uranus opposition becomes exact at 3:48am EDT.We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday on, it will be strong until Friday evening. We are better off thinking outside the box for those three days. We want to change a life situation (or relationship) that is out of alignment with who we now want to be. 

Our minds may feel overwhelmed by what all this means, especially as it relates to our relationships. Stay calm, as best as you can: Sudden or rash decisions might backfire. 

Do your best to take it one moment at a time. It may be true that something does indeed need to change; however, we need to step back, see the bigger picture, not rush into anything. Keep taking actions, even if it seems that you are not making any progress: If you keep at it, you will be rewarded ;-)

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in in 19-25 degrees of Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius).

Thursday at 7:17am EDT we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts a little over 4 hours, until 11:28am EDT. Use this intuitive time to connect to others and create allegiances. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Thursday morning ahead of time ;-)

Thursday at 11:28am EDT, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Saturday afternoon. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt -- so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two and half days ;-)

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others -- home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful. This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the last Quarter Moon (which, will be exact on Saturday afternoon...)

Friday (Oct. 21st): theMoon remainsinprotective, introverted Cancer all day (see Thursday late morning for details). We start the day with a sense of "flow" and emotional connection to others. 

Towards the afternoon, we may encounter relationship challenges that require a balanced approach: The Moon opposes Pluto in the early afternoon and then opposes Mars in the late afternoon. 

This could drive some tension or oppositional behaviors; as best as you can, remain flexible and practice self-care. Remember: no matter what, you need other people in your life, so find win-win solutions ;-) Ask yourself: Would I rather be right or connected? Tomorrow is another day; it may well bring another perspective.

Saturday (Oct. 22nd): theMoon remainsinprotective, introverted Cancer until 3:34pm EDT (see Thursday late morning for details).

Saturday at 3:14pm EDT, the last Quarter Moonin 29 degrees of Cancer becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Cancer, on Thursday late morning.The Moon in protective, nurturing Cancer makes a challenging aspect to the Sun harmony-oriented, idealistic Libra. This may bring challenges; however, it also energizes us to face what demands completion or change. 

This Moon phase brings us closer to Oct. 30th, which will bring the New Moon in Scorpio. During the last Quarter Moon, we are better served by reviewing those projects we began around the last New Moon -- in this case, that would be Sept. 30th -- as opposed to launching new ones. Out of those projects, what needs last-minute adjustments? What did you discover since then? What did it mean for you? 

As best as you can, find creative solutions for anything that comes up (whether internally, or with others).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 27-29 degrees of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, Aries, or 0-2 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio? If so, you will feel this month's last Quarter Moon quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer, since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer.

Also on Saturday at 3:14pm EDT, we enter a brief Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for 20 minutes, until 3:34pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments in your life. As best as you can, find creative solutions to seemingly unsolvable situations. 

Make space both for connecting with others harmoniously, and taking care of any emotional or family issues. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. 

Saturday at 3:34pm EDT, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Monday late evening. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising.

We all love to be admired -- or at the very least acknowledged -- for our greatness :-) So hand out some compliments -- let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things... be honest and authentic, as best you can. 

Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. If there are no "outer children" around, how about getting in touch with your "inner child" -- it's definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it? 

Saturday at 7:46pm EDT, the Sun changes signs from harmony-seeking Libra to passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Nov. 21st. The guiding principle of Scorpio is "I desire". With the Sun in Scorpio our consciousness is drawn towards depth, intimacy, and extremes of feeling.
 
Superficiality simply will not do for the next 30 days. We have the desire to get to the bottom of what matters. We are more interested in that which is hidden, taboo, secret or suppressed. Scorpio's energy is passionate, strong-willed, and intense. Used in its highest vibration, it can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.
 
On a lower vibration, Scorpio can express jealousy, vindictiveness, and use manipulative tactics. Bring your awareness towards your feelings, fears and behaviors. As best as you can, embrace all your feelings, let go of your fears and strip yourself from behaviors that no longer serve you.
 
All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Scorpio Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As a Scorpio, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next four weeks; as a Leo, you are more aware of your own shadow parts… anything that you have suppressed or denied about yourself.

Sunday (Oct. 23rd): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Saturday afternoon for details).

Sunday morning, a somewhat challenging Jupiter/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 9:33am EDT.We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday on, it will be strong until next week Friday (Oct. 28th). This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward -- and we need to make a choice… so we need to develop inner awareness.

Positive thinking is not going to heal everything: We are now called to learn more about our inner joy and about connecting from the heart. There is a particular emphasis on our beliefs around relationships and creating from a harmonious, balanced place. 

At the same time, we feel the need to find time for compassionate and loving self-connection, healing our emotional and spiritual wounds through an inner awareness of unconditional love and faith.

By remaining flexible and making inner adjustments, we can bring clarity (rather than judgment) to both of those energies, and thereby explore them on a deeper level.  

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 8-11 degrees of  Libra or Pisces? If so, you will be more affected by this opposition. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius or Pisces (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius; Neptune rules Pisces)

A head's up for next Monday (Oct. 24th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Saturday afternoon for details). At 8:21am EDT we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 15 hours, until 11:16pm EDT. At 4:46pm EDT, Mercurychanges signs from harmony-seeking Libra to passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Nov. 12th. At 11:16pm EDT, the Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Thursday late morning.More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)

Please take a second to read this testimonial from a participant from the most recent Forum:
"I only have wonderful things to say about Sonja's Monthly Live Forecasting Webinar.  I'm developing a stronger understanding of astrology and of my own natal chart.  It's so awesome to have Sonja's perspective and input on the transits and important astrology events on a monthly basis.  The webinar is super valuable, it's like going to astrology school in a way :)  Sonja's format is very understandable for novice and beginners, but also advanced enough for people are experts.
