2016-10 W41: Forecasts for Week 41 of 2016
Week 41 (W41) / (European Week 40 / W40)
We are in the first full week of October, and the season of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring in the Southern Hemisphere has fully arrived for anyone who doubts it. With a waxing moon, we are now in a period where you want to generally grow and develop things and make money from whatever you might be selling. (Sellers are favored over buyers through October 15th.)
Sunday is a cranky kind of sideways day. (We are righting this overview in hindsight and, so, we will say no more.) Monday you can “get things done,” but focus on action rather than words. Much will be happening “behind the scenes.” The establishment tends to “win” on this date. Tuesday is much like Monday but with a glitch or surprise in the afternoon. Overall, Tuesday is very much a “nose to the grindstone” kind of workday where you can, and should, “get things done.” We might be feeling Mars square Jupiter on Tuesday, and that aspect perfects on Wednesday with Mars in Capricorn and Jupiter in Libra. All bets are off with this combination, but we think you might see a “correction” in the financial markets. Police officers may be in conflict with university professors, and it will not be pretty. (We will try to stay home Wednesday.)
Thursday seems “quiet” but healthcare and legal issues are bubbling to the surface, possibly showing themselves today or on Friday with the perfection of one of two annual Sun square Pluto aspects. Mercury enters Libra on Friday, and this emphasizes the likelihood of legal “discussions” if not battles. Saturday is a good day to rest and especially a good day for creatives (writers, poets, photographers, videographers, and similar).
Sun quincunx Neptune and Mercury quincunx Uranus create havoc. Both of them tend to leave us thinking that (1) the other side understood what we said and (2) we understood what the other side said. Sadly, neither is true. The Sun (Libra) / Neptune (Pisces) is especially pernicious. Both of them want to be “polite” and are too polite to ask what the other side really means. “Misunderstandings,” accidents, confusion, and turmoil result. By itself, it would be difficult. Particularly bad results happen at anything involving religion (i.e. churches or any variant on the theme of a church).
Mercury in Virgo is all about the details and Uranus in Aries could not care less about the details. Each thinks the other understands and is in agreement. Messes from earlier in the day (Sun / Neptune) WORSEN after attempts to “straighten things out.”
Venus aspects the North Node and tells us that we were “due” for these events. Pluto sextiles Lilith, and Jupiter noviles Lilith. Some of us sneak off for a passionated “sexcapade” and it feels really good but just do not expect it to last. Those of us who are not in a position for such adventures will feel a bit “wild” today.
Write in your journal about your passions or draw them or paint them or take pictures. (Pictures of sexy / nude models might go rather well today IF you can avoid the problems of the quincunxes mentioned. i.e. You forget the camera batteries or SD card or something even worse. Check the ID of your model!) Uranus (surprises) triseptiles (karma, sometimes) Juno (the betrayed wife / sister / daughter) today, and with the quincunxes “someone” might “walk in on you” when you least expect it. Or you might be hit with the fallout from your wife meeting with your golf pro at an inopportune time.
I think it is a great day to stay home and take care of overdue items that need to be cleared out. The quincunxes may still bring you some surprises (oops! I forgot to pay that?), but better to clear them out now than in some inelegant moment during the next Mercury Retrograde.
Your Birthday today:
Expect an adventurous year, and do not believe everything (sometimes ANYthing!) you see, hear, or read. Double check everything. You will have fun, no doubt about it, but you will have some miscommunications this year that lead to unpleasant surprises. If you are an artist or “creative” then be meticulous; it will pay off in the long run.
Moon entered Scorpio yesterday a little before 3 PM CDT, and Jim Shawvan has identified an “Opportunity Period” that continues until the Moon v/c about 8 PM CDT on Tuesday. Sun makes a semi-sextile to the North Node speaking to issues of karma but in a relatively mild way. Similarly, Venus (Scorpio) makes a semi-sextile to Saturn (Sagittarius), but, again, in a relatively benevolent way (if anything involving both Scorpio and Saturn can be benevolent). Moon and inner planets are relatively quiet though Moon in Scorpio is almost always “intense” even when it is “quiet.”
Outer planets and asteroids, on the other hand, are busy. We feel subtle but important generational shifts today. Mars semisquare Juno creates a sense of urgency regarding certain trust issues.
Saturn novile Astraea brings certain important, practical insights to lawyers and others working in the legal system. Superfluous tasks and issues are discarded in favor of what really matters. Chiron novile Ceres similarly raises insight regarding health / education / diet / prosperity. Healthcare professionals improve their own diet on one hand, and some people learn something in school that leaves the more prosperous on the other hand. (Adjust the forecast to fit is what we are really saying here).
Ceres opposes Astraea, so certain legal matters “come to a head.” Chances are someone wins big while someone else loses big. We bet on civil defendants (i.e. “big corporations”) and the government (prosecutors) in criminal trials. It is that kind of day.
Your birthday today:
Healthcare and legal issues come to the forefront this year. Be on top of them, and you can experience significant prosperity. You will taste a bit of karma: if you have planned and worked then you will tend to reap benefits this year. If you can neither planned nor worked then you will be forced to do both. Keep quiet as much as you can, and let your actions speak far louder than your words.
Tuesday is much like Monday but with a glitch or surprise in the afternoon. Overall, Tuesday is very much a “nose to the grindstone” kind of workday where you can, and should, “get things done.” We might be feeling Mars square Jupiter on Tuesday, and that aspect perfects on Wednesday with Mars in Capricorn and Jupiter in Libra.
Venus septile Mars is karmic for most people, but athletes may have a breakthrough today, particularly by reviewing any information or records from their old training records and modifying their current training accordingly.
An odd sense of urgency emerges regarding “traditions” and “how we have always done things,” and taking a hard look at those can yield important insights. Examination of health and diet is particularly important to some people today as Ceres (food, diet, prosperity) opposes Hygeia (health and healthcare). Saturn novile Hygeia adds the possibility of an important idea, skill, or insight. This can be fleeting in nature, so capture it by writing it down or drawing it or some other way.
Your birthday today:
You can, and should, get things done this year. Pay attention to diet, exercise, and healthcare; you can have breakthrough insights in these areas. Similar to yesterday, focus on your actions more than your words.
All bets are off with this combination of Mars in Capricorn squaring Pluto in Libra, but we think you might see a “correction” in the financial markets. Police officers may be in conflict with university professors, and it will not be pretty. (We will try to stay home Wednesday.) This aspect sets the stage for what is likely to be an even more “powerful” event October 19th with Mars joining Pluto.
Writers, speakers, and other communicators can have important insights in terms of how to “do things better,” especially karmic insights from the past as Mercury triseptiles Uranus. Mars / Pluto helps you explore conflicts in your work; this is especially beneficial to writers of fiction who are working on “character development.” If you plan to do “Nano,” today can be an important day to lay the foundation for your writing with character sketches and plot outlines.
Your birthday today:
This will be one of the most powerful years of your life. You will find yourself in conflict with others, but in the process you can make extraordinary progress in your goals in you persist in their pursuit. Write down any and all of the most creative ideas that come to you.
Thursday seems “quiet” but healthcare and legal issues are bubbling to the surface, possibly showing themselves today or on Friday with the perfection of one of two annual Sun square Pluto aspects.
For some people, healthcare issues become of paramount importance today. Make certain to attend to these first, above and beyond any other considerations. Otherwise, today tends to be quiet compared to yesterday and tomorrow.
Your birthday today
Focus on healthcare and finances this year. You may have power struggles. If so, then you will need to face them rather than running away. You can do what needs to be done.
Another shakeup occurs today, probably related to Wednesday’s events, as the Sun in Libra makes one of its two annual squares to Pluto in Capricorn. (The other square is the Sun in Aries in the spring. This will continue for the next few years as Pluto continues in Capricorn.) Also, Mercury enters Libra on Friday, and this emphasizes the likelihood of legal “discussions” if not battles.
Your birthday today
This year will likely be a “wild ride,” so get ready for it now. Changes will abound, so saddle up. If you are an athlete, this can be a good year. If you are not an athlete, then consider pursuit of a physical, athletic discipline. (This can be marathon running or it can be “restorative yoga.” Only you know what is the right fit.)
Saturday is a good day to rest and especially a good day for creatives (writers, poets, photographers, videographers, and similar). But, if you are a creative, you will have insights and you at least need to capture them.
For the rest of us, we experience “karma” and would be advised to do something beneficial for someone less fortunate than ourselves. Some people, even if they have not officially given themselves the title “creative,” will have brilliant insights today and would be well advised to capture them with writing or drawing or something similar.
As far as “date nights” go, it is an acceptable one, but you might also have a quiet evening at home. As always, the choice is yours.
Your birthday today
This year is all about a combination of taking a break, or resting, and developing the creative side of yourself. If you are already a creative, then explore a domain. If you are a writer, then take up photography and so forth.
Birthdays this week
We are experimenting with transits for people who have their birthday this week. We picked Wednesday October 5th to use for transits, so if your birthday is the fourth then subtract a day but add a day if it is the sixth and so forth. Feedback on this is appreciated. Please note that Sun opposite Sun is particularly important because it is a bit like a “personal Full Moon” where you need to account for what you have accomplished so far.
