The astrology forecast for the week of October 4, 2021 through October 10, 2021 features three planetary aspects (Sun conjunct Mars, Sun conjunct Mercury, and Mercury conjunct Mars), a sign change for Venus, two planets turning direct, and a New Moon in Libra.
It’s going to be a busy week, but a relatively positive one. So, make sure you enjoy it while the good vibrations last. However, keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde.
The New Moon in Libra occurs on Wednesday, October 6. Although ordinarily, a New Moon in Libra would be an excellent time to attract a new relationship, Mercury is ‘retched out,’ and Venus (the ruler of Libra) is in her detriment in Scorpio. So instead, use this New Moon to create new paradigms within your current relationships, which are not limited to romantic ones.
If you are currently single, you can make a list of all the attributes you would like out of a mate and do cleansing magic to signify your desire for a fresh start. If you are in a relationship, you can use the New Moon to reset (such a lovely Mercury RX word) the energies and create a more fulfilling dynamic that will help improve the relationship’s overall health. In other relationships, you can modify how you work with the New Moon based on the needs of that relationship. The key is formulating new and productive ways to make them healthier.
Now, one with the forecast…
Monday, October 4, 2021
The Moon moves through Virgo and for most of the day opposes confusing Neptune. Therefore, it’s best to focus on tasks that require little effort or concentration because Neptune may keep you distracted and unfocused. However, you can use this energy to tap into spirit, do some meditation, or work on creative or artistic projects.
Tuesday, October 5, 2021
Whereas Monday is a blurry, unfocused mess, Tuesday is the exact opposite. The Moon moves into Libra and forms a lovely aspect to Saturn. It’s an excellent day to complete tasks that you need to finish and get the job done. If you need a solution to a problem today, the simplest solution is the right one.
Wednesday, October 6, 2021
Besides the New Moon occurring in Libra, the Moon makes several aspects throughout the day – a conjunction to Mars, a conjunction to Mercury, and a lovely trine to Jupiter in Aquarius. Overall, it should be a positive day with an energy boost from Mars, great conversations with friends and associates thanks to Mercury, and a more optimistic view of the future thanks to Jupiter. Try to keep a balanced mindset throughout the day.
Thursday, October 7, 2021
Venus moves out of turbulent Scorpio and enters joyful Sagittarius. This is a bit of relief for Venus, who prefers light over darkness. You will seek adventure in your relationships, and you will find that relationships that are stuck in a rut will not do it for you anymore. While Venus is in Sagittarius, it’s a wonderful time to add a little spice to your romantic life and liven things up a little. Venus remains in Sagittarius until November 5.
Friday, October 8, 2021
The Sun conjoins Mars in Libra. Ordinarily, this energy is excellent for starting projects or beginning new ventures, but with Mercury being retrograde, you should proceed with caution. Instead, begin to plan your objectives and strategies, and then you can enact them when Mercury goes direct on October 18. Further, if you have been unhappy with the condition of your life, this is a potent conjunction that will help you break free and begin to live the life you desire. Finally, for the air and fire signs, Sun conjunct Mars may provide you with a much-needed boost of energy.
Saturday, October 9, 2021
This week, Saturday is the only day that comes with a caution sticker – beware of bears and don’t purposely poke them. Mercury Rx will conjoin Mars in Libra, and you will need to put a watch on your tongue because you may say things you will later regret. Mercury conjunct Mars can be argumentative, reactive, and impulsive. So, make sure you keep your guard up. It is best to avoid people that may trigger you. On a positive note, if you need to perform tasks that require a lot of mental energy, this is an auspicious time to work on them.
Sunday, October 10, 2021
We close the week out with the Moon moving through fun-loving Sagittarius. It’s a magnificent day to break away from the daily grind and do things you enjoy. You may want to do a day trip, a Halloween-themed event, or do something amusing. The main takeaway from the Moon in Sagittarius is letting your spirit sore, and your inner child run free. You can adult another day!
See you next week!
