Wednesday October 18, 2017

By meeting today's relationship challenges with responsible determination, we discover important opportunities to build deeper connections. We find the ability to turn 'stumbling blocks' in to 'stepping stones', leading to greater understanding. This is not the time to give up and walk away. We need to stay with the process — even though there may be some pain associated — in order to move past the challenges and claim the rewards. We tend to feel safer when we lead from positions of strength but we may be challenged to reveal our vulnerabilities in this environment. Determined effort to work through today's challenges are well worth our time.

OCTOBER 15 - OCTOBER 21

"When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability. . . To be alive is to be vulnerable."
—Madeleine L'Engle

This week's Libra New Moon (Thursday, October 19th, 12:11 PM PDT 26° Libra) brings to an end much of the rattling, erratic excitement of last month's Jupiter-Uranus opposition. The New Moon's opposition to Uranus brings us to a reexamination of that feeling of exciting independence in the light of our deep need to connect with others. We are challenged to explore opposing perspectives and work on understanding where others are, or have been, coming from. In order to most effectively explore these perspectives, we will have to reveal some of our own vulnerabilities in order to deepen our connections. This week's challenges may feel quite dangerous. Nonetheless, it is well worth our time to dig deep, with a willingness to adapt and compromise. We begin to recognize that the real danger is that, without making deeper connections with others, we face the danger of profound isolation. Mercury joins Jupiter in Scorpio this week, providing some helpful optimism to make the challenging process of deepening connections much easier. Essentially, the idealistic desire for independence and determined search for perfection is tempered by a recognition of our deep, innate need to make connections with others.

Sunday's message tells us to slow down and take as much time as necessary to grapple with understanding the perspective of others. Monday's Moon-Saturn square may lead us to feel a bit imposed upon by heavy responsibilities or reveal suspicions of authority. Mercury moves into Scorpio on Tuesday, making a helpful, optimism-producing conjunction with Jupiter. The Libra Moon conjuncts Venus later in the day, increasing sociability and a willingness to compromise. There is real value in revealing our own vulnerability on Wednesday. We can turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones by opening up about how we really feel. Thursday's New Moon brings the independent idealistic excitement to a peak, challenged by our realization that we really do need others. Our message is meaningless if there is no one to deliver it to. Superficiality and flashy presentations are dismissed in favor of responsible, thorough explanations which are backed up by clear evidence. The benefits of our more adaptable approach seem to be immediately evident on Friday but we shouldn't fool ourselves into thinking that we've 'arrived'. The heady optimism can be tempered with a continued effort to share our personal vulnerability. The powerful activity on Saturday may seem to come out of nowhere. There is a rather cold inclination to quickly or suddenly purge outmoded or unworkable ideas and even relationships. Motivations and intentions may not be immediately forthcoming. Nonetheless, we begin a powerful unraveling process which is likely to produce a significant realignment of alliances.

Thursday October 19, 2017

Today's New Moon (12:11 PM PDT 26° Libra) opposes Uranus, highlighting erratic behavior but also producing significant excitement. Idealistic independence, which reached a peak last month, is reexamined and challenged by our vulnerable need for others. Responsibility is more important here than flashy presentation. While creative, rhetorical flourishes may lend some extra weight to whatever message we are trying to convey, we should not be tempted to just rely on superficial explanations. Today may produce some fatalistic discouragement but there are opportunities for remarkable recoveries, as long as we stay focused on responsibly backing up our vision with clear and articulate evidence. There is little doubt that we can make significant progress under the influence of this New Moon — determined efforts will be rewarded.

Friday October 20, 2017

We quickly discover impressive benefits from yesterday's New Moon today. The feeling of optimism is enhanced by the Moon's trine to Neptune this afternoon. It may be tempting to believe that we've already arrived at the place were we can take a few extra chances or recklessly skip over important details. Rather, this is the time to pursue a steady line of expansion. Don't let the optimism lead you to believe the work is done — or take foolish risks in order to get just a bit more. It may seem particularly dangerous to open up to others about our vulnerabilities or look for ways to deepen our connection with others. However, the window to deeper connections remains open and is likely to be just what we need in order to stay on track in this rather 'heady', optimistic atmosphere.
