Weekly Astro: October 7th – 13th, 2019
Full Moon in Aries!
We start off the week with quite a bit of frustration in the air — the square to Saturn, Mercury opposite Uranus, and Venus entering Scorpio will all bring up deep emotional reactions to perceived limitations and roadblocks. This may not be a fun start to the week, but it is necessary for challenges to arise so we know where are weak spots are.
The Full Moon in Aries at the end of the week is the perfect release valve for all of that frustrating energy. How do you want to handle speed bumps and conflicts that arise when you’re trying to achieve your goals? Where can you sit with more compassion and patience for those around you, instead of reacting with anger or disappointment?
Think about these themes this week as inevitable small conflicts arise, and make an intention on the Full Moon for empowerment that does not sacrifice connections to others.

This week picks up the pace, and quickly.
On October 7th, the Sun, currently in your 7th house, makes a square to Saturn, in your 10th. This can indicate that there will be some friction between your work commitments and your responsibilities to your partner(s). You may feel frustrated or weighed down by what’s being asked of you on multiple fronts—be careful and take rest on this day. October 7th also makes the day that Mercury opposes Uranus, so the chance of making outbursts or saying things out of frustration that may cause damage is high.
Don’t react emotionally to any conversations or disagreements that come up on this day, plus or minus 2-3 days. Remember that things will be more easily soled later on, once these transits are not in effect.
Venus enters your 8th house the following day, on October 8th, indicating that you are seeking deeper intimacy in your connections now. You want to be inspired and transformed by the people you have close ties to now. This could be a powerful day for making intense connections (if you’re looking for that sort of thing) or a day to tune into your own power and agency. Notice who you want to share your time and energy with, and what kind of conversations stir up your inner motivations.
The Full Moon in Aries on Sunday, October 13th is preceded by Venus opposite Uranus just the day before—this will be a powerful lunation for you centered on generating a sense of worthiness and power. You’ll want to notice how your particular skills and gifts impact others, and what you can do to better serve and support those around you. This doesn’t mean sacrifice, this means creating relationships of mutual support and inspiration. The trine to Jupiter by this Full Moon will prove a wonderfully inspirational connection is imminent. You may find a new mentor or guide, or a connection that will prove very helpful for some of your aspirations. Pay attention.
This week starts off with a focus on your health and daily rituals, especially in relation to how you think about yourself. On October 7th, the Sun in your 6th house squares Saturn in your 9th, indicating that in order to move forward in your practice, you have to make peace with your sense of self. Are you doing work that is inspiring and moves you to become a better person? Do you have everything you need to continue to develop your skills in the way that you would like? This transit may bring these questions up in order to show you the places where you may be able to make some changes. Seek alignment.
October 8th is a wonderful day for you to make a new connection, if that’s your thing right now. Venus moves in to your 7th house of partnership, bringing ease of communication and reciprocity in your relationships. If you have someone(s) you are romantic with, this will be a fabulous day to have a date in an intimate setting—somewhere comfortable and sensual. If you’re looking for a new relationship, keep an eye out for people who want similar long-term goals as you. Be clear on what you’re looking for, and you’re sure to find a viable candidate or two.
Enjoy the transits at the beginning of this week, because the weekend brings with it the urge to spend some time alone and hermit. The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th happens in your 12th house, which means unconscious elements are coming up to the surface. This may be the time to go to the hot springs alone and recharge, take a journal and write down your memories, and/or pay special attention to your dreams.
This week might prove tumultuous—especially with your friends. Keep your cool, and try to take things with a grain of salt.
We start the week with the Sun in your 5th house square Saturn in your 8th house on October 7th—that same creative flow you’ve been enjoying may be halted by some relationship issues. There may be some conflict to process, or you may have to let something, or someone go. Saturn in your 8th house is about letting go of attachments that no longer serve you, and this may be a painful process. Just remember that whatever comes up on this day is for the best, tough love given through tougher medicine. Pay attention to what feels limiting and remember that these boundaries are being put in place so you can move past certain patterns and no longer repeat them. Accept your limitations at this time and let your expectations go. Trust that something better is coming.
You’ll be able to recover from whatever comes up on the 7th by focusing on your grounding and daily rituals, indicated by Venus moving into your 6th house on October 8th. Instead of focusing on your frustrations or responsibilities, focus on how you take care of yourself through difficult processes. How do you calm down your nervous system when you feel agitated or anxious? What is the best way to move through agitating energy? Focus on your practice now.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th will bring a wonderful chance to reconnect with loved ones after the difficulty of this week. Lean into your support network and community as you learn to accept whatever has come your way. You are in a moment of deep transformation—that means you need connections that are willing to be there for you when times get rough. Who are they? And how do you celebrate and show your appreciation together? Make sure to let those in your life know just how much they mean to you. Allow yourself to dream together.
You’re taking your relationships a lot more seriously this year, and this week is no exception Cancer. On October 7th, you’ll be busy thinking about your home an trying to nest, and your commitments to partnership will come in direct conflict with that vibe. You’ll either need to work out how to feel grounded and secure in partnership, or you’ll have to process some things out when you’d rather be at home resting.
Single Cancers are not immune to his transit by any means—you can expect that a close friend or co-worker will need your attention at a time when you may not want to give it.
In either occasion, the best move is to make sure you communicate with as much grace as possible. If a heavy disagreement comes up or feelings need to be processed, you may want to delay for a better date—sometime later this week but before the full moon, like Thursday or Friday. October 7th also brings a Mercury opposite Uranus transit, so you are for more likely to have foot in mouth syndrome than is your usual. Be careful and remember – you can and sometimes should reschedule for a later date.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th will shine on a light on your vocation or career aspirations. Because Venus is opposite Uranus the day before, on October 12th, I can totally see this being a day where your accomplishments and talents are finally noticed by someone who can really make a change for you now. It serves you to get whatever came up earlier this week resolved so you can enjoy this full moon to the fullest.
What do you want your daily life to look like? If work was aligned with what gave you joy instead of what you needed to do in order to survive, what would that look like? Start practicing it now until it becomes your reality later. Choose what you want to be doing, and then make it so.
I see some upgrades coming to your house this week, Leo. You’ve been doing a lot of work to get your career moving forward and your goals aligned. This is the week to treat yourself and re-invest in your home as a job well done gift. You should be looking to have a comfortable and serene home setting from where to build your practice. New couch? New bed? Maybe redecorating the home office space? All are on the table this week.
Mercury in your 4th house opposes Uranus in your tenth on October 7th, showing that you’ll be inspired to make some changes given the new developments in your work. Venus enters your 4th house of home and grounding the next day on October 8th, and this will be the time to make some changes. Center yourself at home. How do you feel in your private spaces? Can you find calm, peace, and support? What do you need to change in order to feel more comfortable?
That’s your job this week.
Get it done by October 13th, when the Full Moon in Aries blossoms in your 9th house of travel and inspiration. As you set the proper groundwork for growth, you can reach out into the heavens and aspire to greater beginnings. This Full Moon will inspire you to take on a new practice or expand your knowledge— either internally through meditation and movement practices, or externally through travel. Let it take you somewhere new.
You’re definitely going to feel the Scorpio vibes this week, Virgo, with the Full Moon in Aries on October 13th lighting up your 8th house of transformation and loss. We’re going to be building up towards this lunation this week, so the running theme will be letting expectations go.
On October 7th, we have both the Sun in your 3rd house square Saturn in your 5th, as well as Mercury trine Uranus in your 9th. You’ve got a lot on your mind this week, as certain changes in your immediate circle of relationships is making you question who you keep close and who is actually dear to you.
You’re working on finding a balance between your desire for close connections and your impulse for self-renovation now. Not everyone can stick around for the changes you’re making, and you may need to find new people to connect with.
Venus is opposite Uranus on October 12th, right before the Full Moon in Aries, and this will be a wonderful time to meet someone new or find a new source of inspiration. You want someone who can give you a proper mirror—someone to bounce your ideas off of and really grow together through discovery. If this is your current boo, then you’re in luck—I would plan an adventurous date on this day. If you’re single, this is a good time to take a new class or go to a meditation retreat—you’re looking for inspiration through connection with others.
The Full Moon on October 13th will bring up some limitations or loss, so it’s best you enjoy the 12th by giving yourself lots of self-care and love. This full moon will be in your 8th house of transformation, which means you’re going to have to make some tough decisions about where you want to go. If you’ve been feeling stagnant or alone, you may need to cut ties and start over somewhere new. You’ll have the inspiration to do that now.
You’ve got some work to this week Libra, as you finesse your plans and get everything in order at home.
We start off the week with the Sun square Saturn on October 7th, which will bring some news for you about some issues at home. You have the Sun in your first house right now, so you should be feeling every much in your power, but this day might throw a wrench into some well-laid plans. You may be hearing about some paperwork that has fallen through, or a family member who needs your support on this day.
This will be a good opportunity to stand your ground and remember that any small changes in your plans do not have a large effect on your long-term trajectory—you’re definitely headed for some big changes. Deal with whatever comes up with grace and compassion—someone could need your help now and being generous with your time and energy will prove helpful in the long run.
After this small change in plans is negotiated, you’ll have the Full Moon in Aries to look forward to, on October 13th. This lunation will empower you to connect to your partner(s) and loved ones in a more authentic and daring way. You want to feel empowered and supported by those you love and allowed to roam the wild countryside of your heart in search of new inspiration for your practice.
Let yourself go, and trust that those that love you will be able to hold space for your needs. You’ll find someone new that may inspire you to work on a collaborative project or relationship now, depending on what you’re looking for.
You might need some independence this week in order to sort yourself out, and I suggest you take it.
We start this week with the Sun in your 12th house square Saturn in the 3rd on October 7th, which means that a conversation you have may make you feel a type of way, or you’ll have trouble expressing exactly what you need now. You may feel understood or like an old pattern of communication is getting in the way of a current relationship.
If it gets too heavy, take a step back to collect yourself. You don’t need to figure everything out right now, and you have plenty of time and space to get things right. You may have some old memories triggering current issues in your connections, and it may be best to take this week to yourself and reflect.
Venus will enter your first house on October 8th, and this will feel wonderfully empowering and highly motivating for you to take some space. This is the time for self-renovation and rejuvenation: how you present yourself is a reflection of where you want to be. Take the time to look good and feel good, in whatever way is best. You want the outside to match the inside now—so be clear with your intentions and let them be reflected by your presentation.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th will highlight the work you have yet to do in order to become that person you are aspiring to be now. As you reach for alignment with your own spiritual goals, you realize how much internal work has to be done in order to get there.
I would take this day to be outside somewhere peaceful, where you can meditate and listen to what your body needs now to follow you on this journey.
You might be facing some annoying limitations and frustrations this week Sag, so take a breather whenever you feel your blood start to boil.
October 7th brings a square to the Sun in your 11th house from Saturn in 2nd—even though you want to be out and about enjoying the social scene and building connections, you may feel like the purse strings just can’t cover all the expenses. How frustrating! Instead of dipping into your savings or charging everything on the credit card, get savvy about how you spend your money this week. Choose your events wisely and communicate your limitations when necessary. Your friends will understand if you can’t go to the new hot restaurant for dinner but can do a burrito from the corner.
You’re going to start paying more attention to your anxieties and worries as the week progresses, so be kind to yourself and try not to set too high an expectation for yourself. Venus moves into your 12th house on October 8th, so you would be wise to listen when your anxiety starts to rise around certain people, or you just don’t feel comfortable in certain situations. If someone in your life requires you to bend over backwards for them, or stretches your energy to the limit, then it’s time to take a break now and recover.
This is all information for you in preparation for the upcoming Full Moon in Aries on October 13th, which should bring a highly romantic and intuitive connection, should you be into that sort of thing. With the Full Moon in your 5th house making a sextile to Jupiter in your 1st house, you are sure to enjoy some attention and praise for your magical and sparkly self. I can totally see you getting recognized for some fabulous project you’ve been working on for a while, or meeting someone who could be a potential boo.
All depends on what you’re looking for, but circle this date as a time to be feeling yourself and plan accordingly. Maybe get a haircut.
I can see you getting tired this week, Capricorn. Verrrryyy tired. So don’t push yourself past your limits just to please others or strengthen connections. I know it feels like every single opportunity is of utmost importance right now, but if you show up haggard and grumpy, it won’t matter whether you made the time to connect or not, because you won’t be able to take advantage of the new connections.
We start off this week with the Sun in your tenth house square Saturn in your first onOctober 7th, which begins the slow down for you. You’ve been go go go for a few weeks now, and have some things to deal with that you’ve been putting off that now demand attention. You have to feel secure and comfortable in order to rise to the occasion, so make sure you’re setting yourself up for success now. Take a mental health day if you need it, or allow yourself to just do nothing for a single day. You need time to rest and recollect after all the changes that have taken place.
Both Mercury and Venus are in your 11th house of social connections this week, opposite Uranus on October 7th and 13th. You may be invited to many different social and networking events, or your presence may be requested at various occasions with friends and loved ones. While normally this would feel warm and inviting, it might feel more like overwhelm and stress. Remember that you don’t owe anyone your time and presence. Especially if your mind and spirit require rest now.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th is about centering your home space—how you feel in your heart and root chakra, your connection to family and an active support system, and literally your home environment. Is your apartment in shambles? Do you rarely have a minute to yourself except after you turn off the lights? Have you connected with your family recently, chosen or otherwise? Now will be the time do it.
You may be thinking about travel plans or getting yourself in order for a move, but this week has other ideas in store for you, Aquarius. You’re going to have to focus on some commitments you made at work on October 7th and 8th, when both Mercury and Venus in your 10th house are lit up by Uranus.
Your plans at home are changing because of some shifts at your work—and while this will ultimately be a good thing, it might feel startling in the moment. This is the time to embrace the changes and allow for your plans to be changed because of a fortunate opportunity.
A family member may need some support on October 12th, when Venus makes a direct connection with Uranus in your 4th house. Even though you might be enjoying a renaissance in your career and work opportunities, duty calls. Pay attention to who needs your support now, because you may regret not being there for them later.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th will bring some more news from your family—this time a sibling, family friend, or neighbor. It’s going to feel like just as your packing your bags and hitting the road, everything goes wrong at home. And it some ways, you’re right. But what’s really happening here is that your family wants your attention. Chosen or blood, people in your life who have deep connections with you want to share your presence before you go. So make the time this Full Moon for quality connections. You won’t regret it.
You may be trying to get some alone time this week, Pisces, but the stars just won’t let it!
On October 7th, the Sun in your 8th house is square Saturn in the 11th—you’d like to be spending time at home with a partner or intimate friend, reconnecting to what makes you feel inspired and energized. But with Saturn in your 11th, you have some commitments you made to friends or social events that just can’t be ignored.
It will be best for you to fulfill these duties to your community and connections, as there is a great opportunity for you in the social sphere at this time. You’re being dragged out of the house because a vibrant connection can be made on October 7th when Mercury is opposite Uranus, or October 12th, when Venus is opposite Uranus.
Uranus in your third house represents the opportunity for inspiration and insight from acquaintances and new connections you make now. Even though you may feel like you already know everyone you want to know, or that people out in the real world are just too intense and chaotic for you, you’re being asked to take the chance and meet someone new. New connections offer the opportunity for taking a different point of view, and that’s exactly what you need now.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th will show you the benefits of opening yourself up to new connections and your willingness to listen to new points of view in the form of a new opportunity to increase your revenue. If you want to make more money or feel adequately appreciated for your talents, this is the full moon to step into your power for self-creation.
Remember that new chapters in your life and career don’t just spring up from the ether—they are created by your willingness to participate with the energy around you and notice opportunities to step up. So take notice now, and choose your next move. However you chose to implement your skills can prove very fruitful for you in the next coming months.
