|Happy Halloween! Mercury is now direct.|
For many, Mercury stationing direct is very welcome. It gives people a chance to pause for a moment and reflect on the mistakes that have happened over the past few weeks. It also gives us an opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate our direction. After weighing the options we can move forward with a better sense of balanced decision making. The Mercury retrograde gave us all a reminder of how important it is to take the time to think things through before committing.
Mistakes lead to improvements. Now we are smarter because of the errors that happened during Mercury retrograde, and we’ll be able to make better choices as we forge ahead. Although we are now in the final shadow period with Mercury for the next 3 weeks, communications and decision making should start improving now.
This week is definitely about renewing your approach to the choices you make. Do you live your life according to what others want or need from you, or do you make choices based on what you really want for yourself? It's a good time to think about how your life unfolds according to the choices you make. Sometimes you need to say no to what others want and keep external distractions from pulling you away from what you really want. You don't have to feel guilty for choosing what is right for you. Even though it is a week that has a lot of dreaminess to it, thanks to Neptune, it's still important to be realistic about your situation when you need to be. Honesty is the best policy.
Venus and the Sun are close together as this week begins in the early part of the sign of Scorpio. Both Venus and the Sun connect with Neptune in fellow water sign Pisces.
It can certainly be a romantic and dreamy time full of fantasy, but there’s also the slight potential for jealousy and power struggles in some romantic relationships. If your imagination takes over and it’s coupled with your self-doubts, jealousy is certainly a possibility. If that is the case for you, dig down into the roots of your personal issues and ask yourself what those feelings say about your identity and self worth. This could be the opportunity to understand self-love at a much deeper level.
Because the Sun and Venus have so much power and positive energy together, love will rule for most. Honesty in relationships makes a world of difference. It is when people hold onto secrets that trust issues will come up.
With Venus and the Sun in Scorpio reaching out harmoniously to Neptune in fellow water sign Pisces, it is in the chivalrous, romantic, dreamy place that most want to experience in love now. With the energy of Scorpio in play, some may be interested in exploring the sensual aspects of their relationships more deeply than usual.
With Halloween this week, the aesthetic appreciation of costuming will likely be quite enhanced with Venus in Scorpio. It’s a fun time to dress up and switch up your identity and embellish in characteristics you’d like to emphasize. Although the ghoulish, scary characters can be a lot of fun, this year we may find the beautiful and more fantasy-like costumes to be more intriguing and eye-catching.
Halloween was a time the ancients believed the veils between the world and the spirit realm were at their thinnest. For some this is a scary time, where lights are out and doors are locked. For others, it is an opportunity to enjoy occult and esoteric subjects and to connect with loved ones who have passed on through prayer or other spiritual approaches.
Also be sure to read more about the growth of this 2 week period, beginning with the New Moon in Scorpio here.
On All Soul’s Day, November 1st, Mercury, Venus and Mars are active in the sky.
Venus and Pluto also have a pleasant connection on Saturday as well. Loving yourself, loving others, and loving the world makes all the difference. The experience of love in all its many facets is emphasized. It is where you will realize your greatest power. Soak up the love on Saturday and make an effort to share the love you hold. A smile or a twinkle in your eye can have more impact than you’d imagine.
Mars joins in this week’s dreamy qualities of Neptune on Saturday. This is the perfect time to get in the zone. Whatever effort it is you put your energy towards, being in that space where you almost feel like you’re between worlds, is so good for you. Athletic endurance can take you there. Whatever higher goals you are determined to work towards now, whether it be in career or personal achievements, visualizing success is key to reaching the next level. Belief and faith in yourself can move mountains now.

If the additional energy is not utilized well, anger issues could arise. So, if you feel an excess buildup of energy, you need to find a way to release it now and use it for good intentions. The benefit of anger, though, is that it can be motivation to create change. So, don’t just try to quash it. Know that what anger and irritation really is a signal that you want change and that you have energy that desires to be channeled. Hang out with people that you adore and brighten your day this week.
