Visible Planets: Morning: Saturn
Evening: Venus and Jupiter

The first week of October is upon us. Weather changes as evenings grow cold and mornings are crisp. The heat of Indian Summer wanes as daylight hours shorten. Flames flicker as autumn fires warm our homes and inspire our hearts. The season of impending darkness has arrived. Night skys are dark and scattered with diamonds, Venus shimmers low in the west at dusk and Jupiter remains an easy-to-identify beacon of light in twilight and on into dawn. Messenger Mercury is retrograde in Libra until Oct. 15th, so we are well advised to practice peace and cultivate patience in our relationships. Give yourself and others a break, take it easy! Pairing and sharing dominate the collective and individual consciousness, make sure you’re happy with you and let others be happy, too. Be aware and be there. Good luck!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
Examine your ability to set goals and achieve them. Consider your ideals, dreams and aspirations. What do they look like? With Mercury, Uranus and Neptune retrograde, the cosmos encourage review. Think about to who and what you’ve made commitments. Inner peace is your indicator. Do what it takes to get there.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
The Libra zodiac month favors the Bull’s peaceful, artistic, romantic side. Immerse yourself in beauty and creativity. Pair up with people who appreciate life’s most simple pleasures and enjoy them together. Fresh air, good food, fragrant flowers, a starry night or an afternoon walk are examples. Feel the gratitude and discover the grace.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Great gains come from programs of self-improvement this week and month. It’s time to work on self-esteem. Action is the means and understanding what you can change – you – and what you cannot – everyone else – is the key. Identify your part in every relationship and situation, then do what you can to make it healthier and happier.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Venus and Mars in fellow water sign Scorpio light fires of romantic love and exciting passion. Mercury retrograde in your solar 4th house of home and family may deliver someone or something from childhood to your door. Feel the feelings and ride the waves but don’t get lost in the ocean of emotion. Keep a clear head and be cool.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
The Lion loves Libra and the airy-fairy energy of autumn. Golden leaves and warm-hot days give way to magic sunsets and starry nights. Fill your heart with love and your mind with happy thoughts. You’re a bundle of energy and it’s imperative you keep it clean. Utilize fuel that leaves no residue. Stop trying to control and live free.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Are you doing the work? Are you cleaning up messes, organizing files and pruning the bush? You know exactly what you need to do, so do it. No one else can do it for you. Why waste time and precious energy in the illusion of self-importance and the dysfunction of self-pity? Life is beautiful, just like you, so love and breathe it.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Happy Birthdays continue and live is good. Up and down, light and dark, joy and sorrow – balance and resolution are inherent qualities of the Universe. Polarities are everywhere. As a warrior of peace, a messenger of love and a creator of magic, carry the light and illuminate the path. Good luck and may you walk in beauty.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Voluptuous Venus and macho Mars cohabitate in your sign this week, attracting love and exciting passion. Take a deep breath and calm your senses. Relax and enjoy the moment. Recognize the power of the present and make enlightened choices. Call on your angels and follow the signs. Go with the flow, ride the river and sail the sea.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Pluto has been hanging out at the Galactic Center for a long, long time. This translates as an ongoing period of unlimited potential and multi-faceted possibility for Archers. Personal power is a gift this once-in-a-lifetime transit bestows you. Have you been handling it with wisdom, humility and compassion or abusing the gift?

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
The once every 12-year transit of Jupiter to Capricorn continues and you are well advised to enjoy the many returns and opportunities that come your way. The bottom line and major messages come via spirit. Expand, grow and enlighten. Open your mind and follow your heart. It’s a multi-dimensional Universe. Simply do and be your best.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Career responsibilities and professional pressures may direct activities and delineate schedules this week. Monetary issues motivate action and the time is now. Funny thing, you’re enjoying the work and reveling in the results. Think positive and play fair. It’s all right here and you have absolutely nothing to lose. Finish the job.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Investment partnerships and intimate relationships continue as priorities, but you feel much lighter and more optimistic about them than you have in a while. There is truly a silver lining to every cloud and a reason for every season. Romance and finance benefit by way of sweet, loving kindness and right action. Find the gold and share the wealth.
