Venus in Sagittarius — Oct 18, 2016 – Nov 11, 2016


Venus enters Sagittarius on Tuesday, October 18th at 7:00 am UT (or 3:00 am EDT). If you were lucky enough to be born with this Venus, you’re probably generous, vivacious, outgoing and expansive.

You’re known for being up-beat and optimistic, always seeing the glass as half-full, and always up for a good time.

Venus represents “love” among other things. Sagittarius is related to personal growth and expansion, travel, religion, philosophy, higher education and ideas.

Venus in Sagittarius people tend to love all of these things, even though they’re prone to engage in heated debates about them. They tend to be spontaneous, adventurous and happy-go-lucky.

They say what’s on their mind and in their heart — often at the most inappropriate times! They’re know for putting their feet in their mouths,but are usually very good-natured. They can laugh at themselves and can take a joke, as long as it’s told without malice.

Astro Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 16, 2016 – Oct 22, 2016:

We start this week with a Full Moon — Beaver Moon — at 23° Aries 14′ on Sunday. This is a powerful and potentially volatile Full Moon, first because it is a Super Moon (meaning that it’s closest to the Earth in its orbit) and also because it’s very closely conjunct to Uranus.

We start this week with the Moon moving into first quarter phase (at 16 Capricorn 18′) on Sunday. This first-quarter Moon is closely conjunct Pluto, and will square Uranus before the day is through. This is a rather volatile signature, with the potential for power struggles and emotional confrontations exceedingly high.

Astro Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 2, 2016 – Oct 8, 2016:

We start the week on Sunday with Mercury opposite Chiron and inconjunct Uranus, while Neptune inconjuncts the Sun and sextiles Venus. Starting with the Mercury aspects: as Mercury is the planet that rules thoughts, ideas and communications, this combination can be particularly tricky.

The Chiron opposition can see you feeling inadequate or wallowing in self-pity. It can also leave you susceptible to deception — including your own. Don’t get caught up in drama and don’t let your compassion for others cloud your thinking.

October 2016 Tarot Scopes by Melodie

Tarot of the Zirkus Mägi -- Two of Buckets

ARIES: Two of Buckets

Your focus this month is going to be on love, romance and relationships. The Two of Buckets is the Tarot of the Zirkus Mägi’s version of the Two of Cups. It’s called “Love” in some versions and “Harmony” in this one.

It speaks of finding your soul mate, your better half, your “one true love.” It’s the card associated with male / female, yin / yang energy and the concept of opposites attracting.

It’s about a love so perfect that the two become one, making it nearly impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins. But true love takes on many forms. And it’s often marred by things like fear, jealousy, tension, uncertainty and sex.

And here we see none of these. We see a bond that’s so intimate and affectionate between a young child and her elephant friend. She leans in with a loving embrace and he responds as only an elephant friend would. He sits there patiently and contentedly, with his own offering of love in his trunk.

Jupiter is now in your relationship house, asserting a renewed sense of romantic idealism, as well as an openness to finding the sort of love that belies status quo expectations.

The New Moon also having taken place in this sector promotes the ideal of “self-love.” And what better way to manifest that energy than to see it mirrored back to you in its purest form?

If you’re thinking about diving back into the relationship arena this month, you’d do well to take a leaf from this unlikely pair’s book. Whether you’re in an established relationship now or just looking, holding yourself up to this kind of ideal can only benefit you in the end.
