October 24th – October 31st, 2017
Last week’s whirlwind of a New Moon lingers to the tune of Michael Jackson’s ..“got-tah be startin’ somethin’, ya got-tah be startin’ somethin‘….Even if you are unfamiliar with the song, I am sure you get the point. As we shimmy into this week’s astrology, then, X-ray glasses on, our raison d’etre continues to send rushes of blood to the heart -demanding a reckoning. In another way, perhaps we discover the source of electrified knee-jerk reactions that caused us to kick up and out last week.
This kind of astro weather reminds me of when I first started writing horoscopes. Learning how to build a website was beyond frustrating. Coming up with the right words seemed an impossible task -one that remains trying. Yet, at the time, something else had taken over. There was no time to wallow in what could go wrong. No time to throughly justify why I was doing this. A will to do fuelled by an never-ending supply of energy made me do it. It took me over. It ate up every waking moment. It’s not like I had the time. My world was jam packed – lists upon lists of other things needing to be done, just to maintain some semblance of balance in my life. It felt as if I was surrounded by forces clawing at my clothing intent on bringing me down. Now that I think about it, that’s probably why it I fought so hard to stay up. I had tapped an energy source I never knew existed. An erratic energy to be sure, and so begging for an outlet in some form or fashion.
Mars in Libra will fight to maintain the balance between our perceived selves and some form of other. The Sun in Scorpio will make sure you can keep up as it meets with Jupiter- a palpable force intent on expanding the caverns of our awareness. Under these skies, deep seated potentials we’ve been too scared to explore are being activated. It’s about time.
