Promising opportunities are hovering around, and clever Rams will examine all possibilities in a sensible and realistic light. With Jupiter and Saturn both visiting your hopes and wishes zone, it’s important to have an exciting long-term goal that you’re working towards. You need to be patient though, as you focus on bringing your lofty dreams down to earth via a practical plan. Saturday’s Sun/Saturn square will be frustrating, so modify your expectations and pace yourself.
With Venus and Jupiter activating your career zone, find creative ways to inspire others and shine more brightly at work. You’re feeling positive about a challenge but sometimes there’s a fine line between being optimistic and being unrealistic. Wisdom for the week is from birthday great, painter Pablo Picasso (who was born on October 25, 1881). “Our goals can only be reached through the vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act.”
The Sun and Mars are visiting your wellbeing zone, so be proactive about finding a fitness routine that keeps you motivated. And choose healthy food options that you actually enjoy eating! Attached Twins – are you stuck in a relationship rut? Venus and Jupiter encourage you to be more adventurous with your partner. Unhappily single? Don’t be dazzled by bulging pecs or a substantial bank balance. Look for lasting love with someone who has similar goals and values.
This week’s planetary patterns suggest retiring an outdated friendship so there’s room for a new one. Creativity is high, as you tap into the magical muse within. With Mars and Mercury visiting your domestic zone, strive to be more proactive and communicative about a current family problem. Plus adjust your home/work ratio so it’s much more balanced. Many domestically inclined Crabs are in the mood to clean, de-clutter, decorate, renovate or cook up a storm at Casa Cancer.
Many Lions will crank up the charisma, as you make family and friends feel extra special. Venus and Jupiter also stimulate your love of the good things in life, as you enjoy convivial company, beautiful surroundings, fine food and stylish fashion. But avoid the tendency to worry and obsess about something that is totally out of your control. Heed the wise words of Mary Engelbreit, “If you don’t like something, change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”
The Sun/Saturn square could exacerbate problems with a stressed colleague or a neurotic neighbour, as you misunderstand each other’s motives. Make it a priority to communicate your thoughts and feelings in a clear and compassionate way. It’s a suitable week to study financial matters, find something that’s been lost, tackle jobs you’ve previously put on the backburner, and cross tasks off your long to-do list. Family get-togethers and work functions are also favoured.
Venus and Jupiter encourage you to contribute more of your time and talent to a worthy cause within your local community. And the planets also prompt you to text, tweet, post or publish your ideas to an appreciative audience. But keep your wits about you and avoid getting side- tracked by unrealistic expectations and dubious dreams. Inspiration for the week is from birthday great, actress Julia Roberts (who was born on October 28, 1967) “Loving what you do is the secret to everything.”
Have you been languishing on the sidelines? This week action-planet Mars joins the Sun in your sign so sarcasm and sulking are out, and buoyant joie de vivre is in! There’s much to look forward to as you attract good luck, acknowledge a success or celebrate an important milestone. It’s also time to be as proactive and positive as you can manage. So your mantra for the week is from Scorpio birthday great, painter Pablo Picasso “One must act in painting as in life, directly.”
Are your goals and dreams for the future ambitious enough? Venus and Jupiter encourage ruminating over big-picture ideas. Romantic liaisons are likely and friendships are favoured. But there’s no room for false modesty or passive procrastination as you enjoy talking, texting, posting, promoting, publishing or podcasting. So your motto is from birthday great Katy Perry (who was born on October 25), “If you’re presenting yourself with confidence, you can pull off pretty much anything.”
With Saturn (your patron planet) and Jupiter both stimulating your wealth zone, tap into the abundance that is all around you – and not just on a financial level. It’s time to combine your outer creativity with your inner strength, so that you shine brightly for all the world to see. Strong self-esteem and self-acceptance are your Capricorn birthright! So your motto for the moment is from entertainer Katy Perry (who turns 37 on October 25). “Self-acceptance is the key to be truly free.”
Aquarians can expect a rollicking ride, as your motivation levels fluctuate. Is a work colleague or loved one being difficult and demanding? Don’t be too hard on them … they have a lot on their plate. It’s a good week for goals, dreams, financial matters and taking care of business but you’ll feel a bit stir-crazy on the weekend. Try channelling your restless energy into challenging personal projects and adventurous outdoor pursuits, rather than sitting around feeling frustrated.
When it comes to plans for the future, you’re full of innovative ideas and creative schemes. But can you tell the difference between an inspiring daydream and a dodgy delusion? Realistic Saturn demands that you dig deep and set substantial goals that are worthy of your talents. And strive to get the balance right between being impulsive and taking thoughtful action. Spontaneity works sometimes but, at other times, perceptive Pisceans need to adopt a more measured approach.
