Aries  (March 20 – April 19)

I predict you do not go gentle into that good night, but oh, Aries, I wish you would. Your dramatic spotlight, brought to you by the makers of the full Aries Moon the weekend of October 14, gives you an awesome opportunity to make everything okay. October's battle of wills should not bring you to your knees. Patient give and take equals your success. Talk it through. That volcano inside you requires an outlet, yes, but put it into art or into any kind of inspirational message, not into a fire that burns bridges, friends and associates. So employ patience, particularly in any legal or educational scenario, and with those in distant lands, and you will triumph.

Taurus  (April 20 – May 21)

Pressurized choices! As Taurus Yogi Berra once said, "It ain't over till it's over." So hang in there. Secrets are revealed and details become clear after Monday, October 10, when Moon goes into Aquarius, and you'll be glad you didn't take the shortcut route (which rarely works anyway). October turns out to be the month you know — really, really know — the path you are going to take. And with whom you're going to take it. This knowledge will come dramatically. Whether you are surprised, or have expected it all along, everything changes for you, and positively. Around the full Aries Moon next weekend, expect a burst of vision (those secret secrets) in your psyche. You like to plan so this is not your favorite type of "event" but go with it, Taurus.

Gemini  (May 22 – June 21)

Let’s cut to the chase. Bang in the middle of your eleventh house: Full Blood Moon! In passionate Aries. So, besides stirring your social life, your role as part of a group is forever highlighted. Best case scenario: you have a profound effect on an audience you are addressing. Your hopes and ideas really get through to them. Due to pain-in-the-ass Saturn in Sagittarius, your seventh marriage house, there will also be a partner who requires more of your attention. Thing is, if you obsess less about this partner you make more money! Any potential conflict this causes clears up. For Love has a power all its own and you experience more and more of this as October continues!

Cancer  (June 22 – July 22)

After October, your work life will not be the same. A change in employment is coming, and you make magic of it. This happens suddenly and unexpectedly, with not much time to plan. Much of this has to do with your choice of home, and here is where all your recent irritation leaves you. Charmer Venus recommends you ask for more money while you have her advantage after October 8. The world will look favorably on your request. I'll put it this way: No sane or reasonable professional will say no to you. Better than partners, who seem to be here one moment, gone the next. Frustrating as you watch them indulge in Their Own Private Idaho of Woe. You can't take much more of the domestic power struggles, and you won't.

Leo  (July 23 – August 22)

Doors open to you when you stay concentrated on the details after October 8. Rise above power struggles with partners and associates by sticking to your word and not promising more than you can deliver. Remember, you're dealing with some control-obsessed sticklers here! Basically, if you can be patient until October's third week, you will be triumphant victor. This means: Take a breather, go inside and replenish, and come out stronger than ever. You may have recently felt such a breather about your home. To those of you who have been working crazily on your space, you can move all that good nurturing and care now toward your love life and your creativity. Get creative, get wet, get going, Leo!

Virgo  (August 23 – September 22)

Your house of self-worth and finances is where you roll now. In the money. You are finally ready to indulge, to get away, to splash out on something wonderful and forever, and wow, do you deserve it. Yes, Virgo, it is time to begin valuing yourself properly! As much as you give other people: now give to yourself. You are lit up from within when you take a break! Have you ever looked better? I don't think so. Plus you are loved and adored, and there is no substitute for that. The only note of caution concerns resources with others. This rises up, most probably while you are in a distant land, and there’s plenty of time to work that out after you get back from your travels. Remember: Everything is negotiable.

Libra  (September 23 – October 22)

After endless sacrifice you are at a place where you have no choice but to attend to yourself and your inner life being. The fun part is feeling as if a forgotten part of you has agreed to come out to play. Hallelujah, Libra! It’s been a long time. You re-connect with your special people and groups to which you once belonged. Venturing out for that takes confidence and energy — and now you have both. And also remember your most important work can be done in privacy through your computer. Here is where Saturn gives its help and wisdom in your third house ruling the Internet, writing, and communications. You have important messages to deliver. We are waiting to hear them.

Scorpio  (October 23 – November 22)

You seem to be in a good flow, but take nothing for granted. Stay alert, keep reinventing yourself, and make use of every opportunity that comes your way while Jupiter and Uranus open fabulous new doors for you. Your ruler Pluto has finally gone direct and spurs you to talking and writing differently, and life becomes easier. Your planet Pluto spends about half the year in retrograde so gawd knows you got used to living in the shadows, but still. It makes for darker thoughts and suspicions, and it's a relief to let these fade into the background. Now doors swing WIDE open in your professional life after a dramatic full blood Aries Moon on October 15. Just wait and see!

Sagittarius  (November 23 – December 21)

Looking good, Sag! This coming week brings pinnacle achievement and karmic replay. The hands of fate seem to be obviously at work and you experience professional or personal peaks. Your creativity is in fine shape too; most things you attempt are likely to move ahead tremendously. Just beware of asking for too much money. You are flying so high that you need to make sure you are respectful to those in positions of authority. (Or you may be unpleasantly humbled.) You will have to work harder to achieve better work. Of course, all planetary energies are multi-dimensional, and your added efforts bring justifiable reward. Concerning a contract, a debt, or a chronic circumstance, this is end of the road time.

Capricorn  (December 22 – January 20)

You are sideswiped by a scenario involving home and early family. A full Aries Moon occurs in here the weekend of October 14, and you profit — but at what cost? It will be a shocker. Know that when conflict shows up, it is ultimately there to serve you. And with the wisdom of your ruler Saturn, you triumph and make it for the better. You move back into the world in grand style. You benefit from fresh sources of inspiration and new things to think about. If it’s different or has just arrived on the scene, it is worth checking out. When you feel inspired, you can go non-stop; when you are bored, well, it’s obvious. Choose the former, and get your energy back.

Aquarius  (January 21 – February 19)

It is best not to depend on others after October’s first week or you may feel disappointed. Hold your counsel and plan to take a Time Out from debates with siblings or sibling-like friends, often living nearby. Don't engage! Honestly, the jury is still in recess, and even the universe has not decided the final outcome. People's advice will be crazy. Due to a full Aries Moon on the weekend of October 14, it could get a bit dramatic. Uproars will erupt suddenly. But take a closer look and you will see they also point you in the direction of workable solutions. Making you especially money-conscious about spending, savings goals, or who’s responsible for what — and someone has an annoying habit of pointing a finger.

Pisces  (February 20 – March 19)

Keep going with your wonderful work! New financial arrangements are clearly in the air. Stay optimistic, for another's improving fortunes help you mid-October. Just remember, whether it is a new attitude, a new look, or something more significant, this second week of October is your most advantaged time. You’re being brought to an important reality check — either your goal is in sight, or it can be time to call it quits. Time for bare-all discussions. Move forward with confidence and trust in your own experience. Mutual undertakings will go beyond your wildest dreams. Just make sure they benefit you. Like … the need to readdress issues that you thought were a done deal. An unexpected trip or a launch into plan B pops up!
