Weekly Scope for October 15th - October 21st.

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 Libra 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.
