General for Week Commencing: Monday 15 October 2018

   Aries Monday 15 October 2018  Mar 21 - Apr 19
The Moon is a star player this week, mainly because of the areas of your chart that it is moving through and the timing. You start the week with adventurous lunar vibes in play, as the Moon wraps up anything but an ordinary monthly visit to an adventurous part of your chart. This is the Moon’s last visit before Mercury and Jupiter return, kicking off your most adventurous year in over a decade. The Moon’s return to your career sector on Monday is just as important. Returning two weeks after Pluto’s direct turn, this is also the Moon’s last visit before Uranus retrogrades back out of your income sector. As well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, this will bring a boost in both income and professional confidence. Meanwhile, the Moon’s return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on Wednesday is just as important. For this comes just as Mars is firing up your passions, competitive and team spirit.
 
   Taurus Monday 15 October 2018  Apr 20 - May 20
The fact that the Moon will not only make a big splash on the adventurous and professional fronts this week, but will add to what is already there, brings home a need for balance. Since May 2017 the lunar nodes have been positioned in your home and career sectors, policing your work/life balance. Yet they leave in three weeks from Wednesday, the same day that the Moon leaves an adventurous part of your chart and returns to your career sector. This is the Moon’s first visit to an adventurous part of your chart since Pluto’s direct turn and their alignment is likely to trigger a sense of rebellion. As the Moon leaves and teams up with Mars in your career sector, this will make it impossible to ignore a growing passion for adventure. Yet the Moon will move on to add fuel to what is already an exciting week across the income, work and career fronts.
 
   Gemini Monday 15 October 2018  May 21 - Jun 21
While the Moon will leave your relationship sector on Monday and any personal and/or relationship tension this may have created over the weekend is already easing back, it is more important than ever to pay attention. Especially to the things that may have taken you by surprise. The Moon returns to your relationship sector every four weeks, fuelling your emotional and intuitive responses and then moving on. Yet the Moon returned to find Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships in Gemini, where she is helping you prepare for Jupiter’s return to your relationship sector. It was the Moon’s opposition that brought your personal and relationship needs into conflict, this time with push back. This has highlighted a mission to know your own needs before a major new relationship journey begins. The Moon will go on and highlight significant developments unfolding on the financial, adventurous and professional fronts.
 
   Cancer Monday 15 October 2018  Jun 22 - Jul 22
From the get go the focus this week is on balance and that includes, work/life balance, knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off, but also a balance between money coming in and money going out. This is thanks to oppositions with either the Moon or Sun and the timing couldn’t be better. The week begins with the Moon in its final hours in your work sector, wrapping up the last visit before Jupiter and Mercury return. This may have created some work tension and job pressure over the weekend, as the Moon clashed with forces determined to see you keep your work hat off. It is the Sun that will expose any work/life balance issues midweek, but considering how busy life is about to become from early next month, the timing couldn’t be better. It is midweek that Mars’ financial passions and fighting spirit will get a fresh injection, which could fire up your motivation on the income and financial fronts, while also exposing a need for balance.
 
   Leo Monday 15 October 2018  Jul 23 - Aug 22
The Moon is making a big splash this week, moving through critical areas of your chart, with critical timing. It began before the week even begins, with the Moon’s return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart over the weekend. The Moon may leave in the early hours of the week, but these playful and romantically charged lunar vibes are special. As the Moon’s last visit before Mercury and Jupiter return, this is a taste of things to come. While the Moon shifts tack, joining Pluto and Saturn in your work sector on Monday, it will be hard to shake off the playful vibe that is a hangover from the weekend. Get used to this, because work and job matters are on the rise and you’re now just weeks away from the start of your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative in over a decade.
 
   Virgo Monday 15 October 2018  Aug 23 - Sep 22
Despite the fact that the Moon will not only return to a playful part of your chart on Monday but could spark a rebellion, this is a stunning week across the income, work and career fronts. That is the case even before the Moon returns to your work sector on Wednesday, which will further fuel what is already in play. With the Sun in his last full week in your income sector, Juno in her last full week in your career sector and Mars moving into his final month in your work sector on Tuesday, everything is locked, loaded and just waiting for the right trigger. The Moon’s return to your work sector on Wednesday could be that trigger. At the very least, the Moon’s intuitive edge will make it easier to read between the lines and join the dots across the income, work and career fronts. Yet those playful lunar vibes at the start of the week aren’t willing to be ignored.
 
   Libra Monday 15 October 2018  Sep 23 - Oct 23
The last full week of your birthday month is always a time for looking to the future and with Venus and Mercury been and gone, for finalising your intentions, game plan and resolutions for the coming year. This should have begun with last week’s New Moon and Mercury’s departure from Libra last week should have tied up loose ends. Yet even when the Sun moves into his final seven days in Libra on Wednesday, there will be no sign of any urgency. For this year, thanks to Venus’ retrograde turn she is on her way back for a rare double dip visit that changes everything. Just knowing that Venus is on her way back means you haven’t even begun to explore all your options, let alone know what you want. For now, the Sun is happy if you simply keep your eyes, mind and your options open. In the meantime, while there are busy work developments ahead, this week is dominated by a mix of romance, passion and adventure in the air.
 
   Scorpio Monday 15 October 2018  Oct 24 - Nov 21
The last full week of your old solar year is a time of reflection, for looking back over the year that’s been and for starting to wonder about your new solar year, which begins next week. This is still the case, but with Venus and Mercury already in Scorpio and Jupiter moving into his final three weeks on Friday, you don’t have to wonder what the future will bring. The walls between the past, present and future haven’t just become blurred, they no longer exist. Especially with Mercury spending his first full week in Scorpio and Venus in retrograde motion. You’re getting a 360 degree sense of where you've been and where to from here and it all looks good. If there is a challenge this week it is from life telling you to slow down and pace yourself, which is less a challenge and more a chance to catch your breath.
 
   Sagittarius Monday 15 October 2018  Nov 22 - Dec 21
Starting the week with the Moon in Sagittarius is always an advantage, giving you an intuitive edge from the get go. Yet even though the Moon will leave in the early hours of the week this is still a game changer. Less because the Moon is sharpening your instincts and fuelling your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses and more because of the messages coming through. This is the Moon’s last visit to Sagittarius before Mercury and Jupiter return, with news of major doors getting ready to open. The month long wind down of your old solar year doesn’t even begin until next week, yet already the future is knocking on your door. The Moon will go on to give you an intuitive read on income and job matters in the first half of the week, before turning its attention onto giving your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
 
   Capricorn Monday 15 October 2018  Dec 22 - Jan 19
The Moon is having quite an impact this week, with the most important being its return to Capricorn on Monday. Returning two weeks after Pluto’s direct turn, this has given you 14 days to adjust to having your attention on the road ahead, while the Moon returns to jump start anything stalled. It is the Moon’s first alignment with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution in direct motion since April, that could spark a sense of rebellion. Not just on the personal front, but when it comes to matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative as well. The Moon’s return to your income sector on Tuesday will be just as significant and not just because of the timing. The Moon will return to sharpen your nose for money on the same day that Juno moves into her final week in your work sector and the Sun his final week in your career sector. This comes as Mars is already firing things up on the income front.
 
   Aquarius Monday 15 October 2018  Jan 20 - Feb 18
In a week that has some exciting partnerships forming, especially on the income and job fronts, across the playful and adventurous fronts and on the communication and relationship fronts, there is also a strong pull to take your personal power back. The Moon will return to Aquarius on Wednesday, a day after Mars moves into his final month of a journey that began back in May. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returned for what should have been a six week visit to Aquarius in May, but instead what followed was six weeks in retrograde motion, three months under pressure and even a 29 day period where Mars retrograded back out. While Mars returned last month, it is only now that he is fired up and ready to make this final month count. The Moon returns to fire up your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses with perfect timing.
 
   Pisces Monday 15 October 2018  Feb 19 - Mar 20
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination from the get go. Yet even though the Moon will leave on Monday, this last visit before your biggest professional surge in over a decade begins, couldn’t come with better timing. This is also the Moon’s last visit before the North Node leaves your work sector and before Uranus returns to your income sector. Yet as important as the valuable clues, hunches and insights the Moon leaves you with and a surge of anticipation across the income, work and career fronts are, is any work/life balance reminders. It was the Moon’s opposition with Juno over the weekend that saw your home and professional lives clash or at least revealed where they could clash. This won’t be a challenge in the future. But this is an opportunity to become more aware of a need for work/life balance.
