WEEK OF October 18 – 2 4, 2021
Should it stay or should it go? You get a huge cosmic assist in the “sweet surrender” department on Monday, October 18, as two planets snap out of their retrogrades. First up is lucky and optimistic Jupiter who has been slumbering since June 20, first in Pisces, then in Aquarius and your twelfth house of healing and completions. Since then, your inner life could have gotten a little convoluted (or chaotic). Among other things, the twelfth house is associated with dissolution—of our connections to unhealthy people and habits. When unblinking Jupiter travels through this zone every 12 years, you may see a need to set stricter boundaries with people who’ve been acting more like energy vampires than allies. Jupiter in this liquid zone could just as easily throw you into escape mode, churning up old habits and addictions that are counterproductive. This once-every-twelve-years cycle isn’t easy for anyone, and it’s twice as hard for your tenacious sign, which struggles with letting go. But now, with Jupiter motoring ahead, you can use those hard-won lessons for good as you get back in control of your life. With expansive Jupiter in your camp, this is the perfect time to start or deepen a meditation practice and work with a therapist, or holistic healer, who can help you bring your body and spirit into better alignment. You’ll have the skills of an emotional ninja by the time Jupiter lands in Pisces on December 28—kicking off a five-month cycle of unprecedented growth and good fortune! And with Mercury correcting course on Monday, too, the brooding vibes of the last three weeks will soon be replaced by an inspired sense of clarity and focus.
Prosperity is not a dirty word, Pisces: It’s your birthright! And starting this Wednesday, as the only Aries full moon of the year illuminates your second house of money, work and security, you’ll start to own this powerful legacy. Full moons bring turning points and completions, and if you’ve been toiling away for the past six months for a raise, promotion or new income stream, your efforts are about to be rewarded. Make room for abundance because it could come flooding in any time over the next two weeks (peak manifesting time for this lunation). Go the extra mile, push a little harder, make ONE more follow-up call… A plum prospect could emerge from seemingly nowhere, though in truth you’ve been tilling this soil for some time. Some Pisces will stick with the status quo, but find a way to profitably monetize a passion project. Now THAT’S a win-win!
Watch out for all kinds of fiendish critters on Friday: snakes in the grass, wolves in sheep’s clothing… An impossible-to-decode clash between rash Mars and shadowy Pluto could bring the creepers out of the woodwork. This is another day to lean HARD into your own guidance and trust your gut if anybody gives you bad vibes. Better to risk slightly offending someone (and apologizing later) than get duped—or worse. Rivalry and jealousy could seep into group dynamics, so make sure you know where the exits are at all times. And definitely don’t get sucked into a (loser’s) game of one-upmanship. If you feel your own competitive spirit rising, turn it on its head by going out of your way to praise someone else’s story or accomplishments—sincerely, though, please!
A new day—er, season—dawns on Saturday, as the Sun glides into intensifying Scorpio and your ninth house of global adventures. After holing up in your private eighth house for the past four weeks, this solar sprint will have you feeling far more expansive than you have in a while. Give those wings a test flap and see if they’re still operational. After being on a very short leash, you may develop an insatiable case of wanderlust. Do your research, as much as you can vicariously, but if and when you feel ready to venture forth, feel free to make up for lost time (smartly and safely, of course!)
