There continues to be a diplomatic, light, glossing-over quality to our communications today. We might be trying to put things into order, but others could be standing in our way, and cloudy thinking or an inability to figure out where to begin could be deterrents as well. It continues to be a poor time for major new beginnings.
- The Moon is in Virgo all day.
- The Moon is waning, and is in its Last Quarter phase.
- Mercury is retrograde, in the sign of Libra (until October 25th). Review, reflect, and revise. Consider ways to improve negotiations skills, one-on-one communications.
- A Solar Eclipse (in early Scorpio) will occur on October 23rd – another reason for holding off on major decision-making.
Give your mind a rest today as much as possible. You’ve had a good run in the thinking too much department, and now it’s time to let your perceptions entertain you! Later today is good for feeling supported, peaceful, and yet pleasantly stimulated. You are more focused on healing energy, positive reinforcement, and healthy competition. There is a strong urge to create building within you. Finding the right channel to express it is key. You could find yourself on the same (or complementary) page as a significant other, and personal appeal is great, in an understated way.
Providing a service or volunteering your help to someone today can be enormously rewarding. There is easiness and a natural, warm feel to intimate matters, as well as a sense of peace and acceptance with yourself – and this is very attractive to others! You can feel a strong urge to make something beautiful, to create, and to bring more harmony into your world. Today and the next few days before the Solar Eclipse on the 23rd are best for letting go, releasing, purging, and healing.
There is a pleasant feel to your relationships today, but there is some spiciness involved as well – hints of something exciting. Interactions can be inspired and inspiring. People are interested in what you have to say and the person behind the ideas, as well! You have a talent for handling difficult situations with respect, ease, and grace, and this trait is highlighted now. Appreciation for who you are is forthcoming However, there can be some confusing energy with you today if you fight it by looking for solid answers and plans. If you allow things to just flow, you’ll be better off.
Good energy is with you today for connecting with family as long as you are not expecting complete agreement or solid answers and plans. Cooperation is key right now, but friendly competition is also stimulating. You are gracious and obliging, and you could volunteer your help with a practical matter as a show of affection. While communications may not have always been especially effective in recent weeks, the ability to show what you mean through your actions is with you right now.
You are more spontaneous than usual today, finding that creative self-expression comes easily and naturally. Interactions with friends and children are especially warm and fun. Your mind is more facile, although you are not as interested in academics as you are focused on creative expression. People energize you today, and you them. There may be some confusion when it comes to something that’s said or not said, but you can turn this energy around by actively showing you care, helping out, and boosting people up. Actions truly do speak louder than words!
Your drive to taste life, and to appreciate it, is strong today. Much of this can revolve around personal possessions and beauty and comfort in the home, but you’re also feeling quite creative and a little more confident about pursuing your needs and wants. The only caution here is that you may not be seeing your finances clearly, temporarily glossing over problem areas, or someone in your life seems to be disapproving of your desires right now. This is a good day for magnetizing people and perhaps things to you. Your natural talents are showcased.
Attempts to reach out to someone can be very successful today. You are more confident about doing so, and the power of your charm is mighty. Extend help, graciousness, and courtesies, and watch how you expand your world. Others might be admiring you for your personal style. Relations with a partner can be stimulating. Even so, there is a withdrawn pattern to the day that you’d be wise to honor by getting time to yourself and letting go of excessive thinking/analyzing. Also keep in mind that we’re in pre-solar Eclipse days, and this means sticking to what we already have going and tending to those things rather than branching out with new endeavors.
You have extra appeal today. You are ready to defend yourself and your worth or value, but you are best off proving your value with positive actions. There is more competition, fire, and energy in your feeling nature, and your love life can mirror this. There can be some yearnings to be understood today, but even though the chances of your words getting across as you intend are low, your actions can mean much more at the moment. Money-making ideas can be especially creative now. Business proposals arising today will need a further look later, but this doesn’t mean you should dismiss them entirely.
This is a potentially good time for enjoying friends and perhaps meeting someone special through them. Friendships and love relationships can strengthen or enliven now, although it’s important not to expect solid answers and directions – the day, in fact, favors gestures more than syntax. You are giving off warm and stimulating vibes. There can be invitations or simply more desire to seek people out and follow up on connections made.
Your charisma seems to be turned up a notch today and part of your appeal right now has to do with some mystery, as you’re keeping some things to yourself. This energy is with you both personally and professionally. Holding back just a little can actually work to your advantage right now. You do not have to reveal everything when it comes to a plan, and in fact, might benefit from keeping some air of mystery around you. Information surfacing today can be confusing, however, so try not to speak too impulsively, or too soon, on a matter.
Conversations with friends can be inspiring and stimulating today. Opportunities to meet someone special through groups, acquaintances, long-distance communications, and networking can emerge now. Your creative powers are good today, and smooth energy is with you for pursuing a project that’s important to you. Affection is easier to express in explicit and direct ways today.
There can be some murkiness in your practical affairs today, and especially in your communications. Someone is misunderstanding you. However, there is also a nice influence happening today that subtly boosts an intimate relationship or a career prospect. You might get professional support or backing. Don’t get too upset if there’s competition right now, as it’s the kind that nudges you to improve.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 1; Taurus 0; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 3; Libra 7; Scorpio 1; Sagittarius 2; Capricorn 1; Aquarius 0; Pisces 1
Meticulous, discriminating, pure, practical, health conscious, hard working. Can be hyper-critical, petty and perfectionistic.
Even-handed, harmonious, artistic, diplomatic, balancing, strong sense of fairness. Can be over- compromising, appeasing, judgmental.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 4; Earth 4; Air 7; Water 2
You are objective and philosophical, preferring to view life from an intellectual perspective. Your rational mind will outweigh your feelings every time, as you consider the world of emotions to be irrational. You have a high sense of fairness, and a logical thought process. Your weakness lies in the fact that you view emotions in a disparaging light.
You are out of kilter with your emotions. Crying or losing your cool in front of other people would be a horrifying thought, let alone action, for you. You often lack compassion for others in your human relationships, and need to learn to honor both your own and other people’s feelings.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 9; Fixed 2; Mutable 6
You enjoy challenge and action, and become frustrated when you have no recourse for change. You expect others to also rise to a challenge.

LUNAR PHASE: THIRD QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 45 degrees behind the Sun.
We have strong beliefs and are likely to put them into action. We have the wisdom to know when to act, but sometimes can be inflexible.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on October 19th:
Note that when an aspect is Applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is Separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
