I took a drive over the Dallas Divide last week and was absolutely stunned by the magnificent October colors. (See the recently posted Viebrock photo – exactly where I was!) Golds, greens, reds and oranges ablaze in the morning sun. How lucky to live in this verdantly beautiful place, where Mother Nature is a constant companion and life is dictated by her moods. Today, cold autumn winds whip across the mesa and leaves dance and whirl, falling to their places of winter slumber. Halloween is just around the corner and witches are collecting potions for their Samhain brews. Good luck and may full lunar force of the October Hunter’s Moon be with you!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
Relationship issues continue as a major focus as old lovers, family members, co-workers and friends past and present shift and shape your life and times. Maintain composure, identify egoic patterns and detach as much as possible from the desire to control others. Codependency is a theme. Step back and let it flow. Relax!

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
The Hunter’s Moon illuminates multi-faceted paths to self-betterment. Accept your part in every play and recognize the power of personal responsibility. The blame game is nothing but lame, forget about it. As you paint your life upon the cosmic canvas, choose vibrant colors and beautiful images. And, love the ones you’re with.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
As the Sun rises in your solar 5th house of love and creativity this week, count your blessings. Life is for living and it’s time to be here now. Practice the art of presence, surrender to the moment and accept what comes. Synchronicity is the message of magic, do not discount it. Continue to clean house and organize messes. Yes!

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Reframing ideas and reconsidering options is par for the course this week as Mercury moves backward through your solar 3rd house of perception and communication. Make amends, mend fences, review choices and revise plans. Alterations and adjustments are favored. There’s always room for improvement and correction. Get it right.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
You may find the week a bit challenging, as many things don’t seem to go as planned. Mercury retrograde plays tricks and redirects energies in ways that baffle or confuse. Re-explore options and understand that the Universe has a bigger, greater plan. What you think you want may not be what’s best. Surrender and go with the flow.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Autumn paints the landscape gold and scarlet as lunar light increases. This week’s full Moon reflects individual responsibilities and personal behaviors in the mirror of relationship. How do you show up for others? Are you maintaining healthy boundaries, integrity and fidelity? Be true to you and honest with the world.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Spidery Venus in Scorpio loves to seduce, entice and ultimately devour her mate. Fortunately, you can relate. Enjoy the magic of attraction as some rather delicious possibilities present themselves this week. Stay sweet and cultivate peace. Remove yourself from negative thinking and influence. Return to a place of grace.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Plans with friends may go haywire and some of your most cherished dreams may seem sadly out of reach. Take a deep breath and comfort yourself by remembering that all is as it should be. Acceptance is the answer to all your challenges today. Forcing solutions on problems creates more problems. Be calm, be cool, let go, and let God.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Lucky you! Good fortune planet Jupiter is in the mid-degrees of your sign, which means you still have several months to capitalize on the multi-faceted possibilities and potential of our solar system’s greatest benefic. Reexamine dreams, direction and desires. Intention is powerful magic and it’s time to clarify yours. Get ready to rock. 

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Lunar energy builds as the Moon grows full and humanitarian Aquarians feel it in their bones. You see the world from a high perspective and understand the power of vision. The world is vast and tiny, good and bad, dark and light. Heaven and earth are one for you today. Be an angel and follow the light. Lead by example.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Planets and asteroids are sprinkled throughout the zodiac this week and intuitive Fish swim in the universal sea of celestial balance. Others find you attractive and seductive when you embrace one and all and all as one. Cosmic consciousness prevails and personal intimacy rules. Release judgment and banish jealousy. Cultivate love.
