WEEK OF OCTOBER 24TH – 30TH
As we approach the New Moon in Scorpio at the end of this week, we are in a time of evaluation of the past month and the past year that started with the last New Moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is a very deep and very secretive sign. It contains everything that we don’t say out loud and everything that others can’t see: our deepest secrets, our deepest desires, and our deepest problems. The Sabian symbol (a unique phrase assigned to each degree of the Zodiac) for the degree of the New Moon on October 30th is “A Calm Lake Bathed In Moonlight”. This poetic image creates a picture of stillness and calm, but, in fact, this is a deep lake with underwater currents and hidden drama, may be even a couple of skeletons on the bottom beneath the calm and reflective surface. Mercury moves to Scorpio in the beginning of the week and will be very close to the New Moon. This connection suggests that our thoughts need to go to the deepest depths of our emotions as well. Scorpio is a silent sign, so it may be difficult to talk about emotions or even to understand them. However, the close connection between the New Moon and Mercury in Scorpio does suggest to go deep with our analyses and to examine and investigate our feelings before we bring them out and start talking about the deepest secrets that we carry.
The week will start with the happy and creative Moon in Leo, but most of the week the Moon will travel through the signs of Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio, encouraging analytical evaluation of our feelings, finding our place among other people and especially in one-on-one relationships, and revisiting the deep storages of emotions and passions. We will feel naturally inclined to think deeply and to make changes and transformations in the future. As usual, don’t forget to make your resolutions and lists for the upcoming month and the next year from one Scorpio new Moon to another!
Moon in Leo: Monday October 24th
We will be on fire in the morning on Monday. The energy will be creative and electric, many of us will wake up to a surprise, many will feel the rebellious energy and the all-swallowing desire for freedom and change. Others may have creative thoughts that will signify breakthroughs and rapid change and movement ahead. However, the overall energy should be happy and playful. If there is a need for a talk (especially a talk about relationships or contracts), hurry up and do the talking before the evening, the earlier the better. By the evening, Mercury will move to Scorpio, and expressing our thoughts or discussing anything may become so much more difficult.
Moon in Virgo: Tuesday October 25th – Thursday October 27th early morning
On Tuesday, after the Moon moves to the sign of Virgo, the workweek will really begin. We will have a lot of clarity about our goals and tasks in hand, about the past mistakes and the future directions. The mood will be serious, and the choices will be made only after deep analyses and investigations. We will be able to remain composed and productive. In the second half of the day, we may experience some unexpected obstacles or calls of duty, but we should be able to resolve any complication with clear mind and optimistic thoughtful approach.
Wednesday morning is precious if you have a long to do list. We will feel a lot of contained power and collected energy, and we should use them to accomplish as much as possible in the morning and early afternoon. The time in the afternoon and evening as well as the next morning will be unproductive and unsuited foe anything important. This time can be used to organize and clean the office or closets at home or to finish something that we started and did not have a chance to bring to a completion, especially if it requires persistent and practical approach.
Moon in Libra: Thursday October 27th late morning – Saturday October 29th
Don’t be in a hurry to start your day. Spend an extra hour in bed if you can or start slowly with a long breakfast if you can. If you have to be at work early, don’t try to start anything important and new early – you will only waste your time and energy. Late morning will bring more productive and positive experiences, but it may be difficult to connect with other people, even if the intention and desire are there. Try to find a balance and harmony in moving forward without others’ help. Later in the day, it will be easier to connect with others and to feel positive ad optimistic. The evening will be perfect for any celebrations or formal events as well as for a pleasant date, especially of you have serious feelings and intentions for the person you will be meeting.
Friday morning will bring a good mood and success. Start the day early and enjoy the success and satisfaction most of the morning. The late morning may bring a problem or two, so, the earlier you start, the better will be the outcome of your efforts. The afternoon and the evening are far from calm and peaceful, there will be action and efforts needed, and peace and harmony may be unattainable. At least, we will be collected and will have a clear head to deal with any complications.
Reserve Saturday for activities related to relationships, search for harmony and peace, and art. This will not be a good day to start anything new or to try to accomplish anything important and to get practical outcomes. Moon in Libra is a social Moon looking for interactions and relationships with others, but the Moon is alone in the sky, and it may be difficult to connect to others.
Moon in Scorpio: Saturday October 29th late night – Sunday October 30th
If staying up late, use the late nighttime to contemplate the changes and transformations you need to make in your life to feel more powerful and less isolated. The Balsamic Moon encourages contemplation and planning for the future, use the energy to prepare for the New Moon on Sunday.
The New Moon on Sunday brings together our feelings, our plans and aspirations, and our minds. This may be a very transformative time if we go deep and investigate our deepest desires and passions, our darkest secrets and problems and try to find the ways to bring all these out to the sun. We may not see the ways to deal with our secrets and hidden thoughts and feelings now, but, if we focus on them on this day of the New Moon, the solutions will come within a couple of the weeks or several months from this New Scorpio Moon. The position of the Moon on this day strongly suggests that our pasts and futures can be brought to harmony and agreement if we give enough attention to feelings and thoughts that cannot be easily seen or understood. Focusing on hidden and secret may be uncomfortable now, but it has a very deep meaning on this day, and it promises sweet rewards in the future.
Avoid starting anything new if the outcome is important or to schedule medical procedures during following days and hours (EDT, week of October 24th – 30th):
Wednesday October 26th 2:32 PM – Thursday October 27th 9:50 AM;
Saturday October 29th 6:09 AM – 10:00 PM.
