Full Moon in Aries. Weekly Astrology Horoscopes for October 9 to 16, 2016

Weekly Horoscope Overview
Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:

This week we are heading towards the Full Moon in Aries next Sunday.

You can read about the New Moon in Libra from a couple of weeks ago that set the stage for development towards the upcoming Full Moon in Aries.

October is an interesting month. Much of the focus is on the what is happening in the mind and how that manifests in the real world.

There is a lot of planets in the political, legal and business sectors of the zodiac.

I will be providing a short summary of the planetary aspects this week, and adding more specifics in the Daily Horoscopes.

On Tuesday, October 11, Mercury and Jupiter meet in Libra. It is our decisions that make the big difference, and our words. We are likely to notice a growing emphasis on debates in the media. What is right or wrong, what is legal and illegal, what is fair and unfair, is sure to get lots more attention.

Mars and Neptune are positively aspected on Tuesday as well. This can lead to good. Anger and irritation can be the catalyst to turning towards the more spiritual side of life.

If you’ve been combative and angry, or feeling like life is a battle, this week can help you realize how you need to find ways to bring more serenity into your life.

The need to take actions that are set with good karmic intentions can heal you and those around you.

Mercury and Mars are at odds on Thursday, October 13th. Expect talk of politics and business to get bigger. A war of words is certainly on the menu. Questioning the legalities, established rules and the differences between right and wrong are emphasized.

It will be easier to see what is hidden behind peoples words and actions now, particularly politicians and business people.

As we well know, those who want power will say or do just about anything to get it. There can be a more palpable lack of trust in political figures and their intentions now. If there is an increased strain this week, it will take much more effort to swing the pendulum back to find balance.

The political issue is truth and transparency. Knowing as much as possible, helps us make better decisions. Expect a lot of talk about what is true and what is fabricated. Those in power can find themselves in the conundrum "does the end justify the means?" Debate of what is true and real, and what is not is a strong consideration this week. Skewed information, bias or favoritism put forth by the media are brought into question.

Words could lead to an escalation of tensions in many areas of life, so whenever possible do make an effort to find calm and composure. Try to make diplomacy a priority that you put real effort toward. A step away and time to yourself may be necessary to collect your own thoughts.

Due to survival instincts people will do all kinds of things to make money. Sometimes, as we well know, salespeople can be relentless in trying to convince us of their reasoning, to make the sale, even if we don't really need it.

So, do be more cautious of salespeople and those wanting to make a buck with their powers of persuasion. Unfortunately, the world has plenty of people that will justify their dishonesty because of their appetite for more and more money. I'm sure all of us have experienced big talkers that put their attainment of your dollars before the truth. An attempt to push you in a direction with lots of quick, direct talk is possible. Instincts can reveal what the real intention of the demonstration is.

If someone is trying to get you to make a decision right away, and sign the dotted line before you've had time to think, take a step back. Being treated like a number being rushed through an assembly line can be highly annoying. Asking a lot of questions to find clarity, can bring noticeable irritation to people you are dealing with.

If someone or something is coming across as an infomercial and your gut is telling you that it's too over the top, then it probably is.

Those who are direct and focused on their mission to achieve certain goals will find too many questions, and too much talk from others will get on their nerves.

A lack of trust in the financial/banking industry is on the rise, and more discussions on how economic gears are grinding is sure to increase this month.

On Friday, October 14th, Mercury and Saturn are on good terms. More of us will be looking to responsible choices. Messages that travel across the globe can shift perspectives quickly with substantial impact. Our ease of connecting to people from far off places around the world has the power to change lives. Peace and harmony are what we need to share more of now.

The Sun and Uranus stand across the sky from one another on Saturday, October 15th. Harmonious relationships are needed. Reach out to those that you want to be a part of your future.

You could be surprised by how other people are behaving. As each of us is seeking and developing our own identities, it can sometimes clash with others. Our unique quirks and qualities don’t always mesh, but we can find ways to create harmony. Focus on balance, beauty and the positive and relationships will be easier to develop. Coincidences are set to be highly uncanny now.

Mercury and Pluto are at odds on Saturday as well. Debates in politics are only going to escalate. It is no surprise that there are strong disagreements in the political arena, and with Mars in the picture, talk of war is heightened.

The big day is on Sunday, October 16, 2016 with the Full Moon in Aries at 12:23 am EDT.

Right before the Full Moon meets precision in standing across the sky from the Sun in Libra, the Moon meets with Uranus. This Full Moon puts emphasis on finding our identities. It is our relationships that hold the key.

Tensions can feel high as we get closer to the Full Moon, pressing us to find positive solutions. The Warrior energy is on alert with this Full Moon. Politics can look increasingly forceful, direct and egotistical, even more than usual! Aries is ruled by Mars, and Mars is currently in Capricorn.

Through all the political rhetoric and media sensationalism, it can affect who you know yourself to be. Disagreements over politics, or religion for that matter, usually just escalate divisions. Your task this week is to find ways to create balance, equilibrium, harmony and peace for yourself and others whenever possible, though it may not always be easy.

There is a highly reactive, instinctive and egocentric association to this Full Moon. As each of us seeks to find our own identity, in relation to larger world issues, it can bring up all kinds of personal feelings that we need to deal with. Relating to other people may be difficult, as differences of opinion are diverse.

Morals, ethics and truth are a big focus this week as part of the larger conversation.

Taurus: Talk by those around you of health routines and creating balance in day to day life can inspire you to change the way you think about your own lifestyle.

Gemini: How you handle social matters this week is in focus. Aggressive, imposing, and nosy people can push your buttons requiring you to put in extra effort to create calm. Those who have harsh words can be grating, but also be careful if you’re feeling the heat that you try to bring diplomacy. It’s easy for biting words to trip off the tongue. Dramatic thoughts can be calmed, but it will likely take quite an effort. A solutions oriented approach requires you to step back for a moment and look at the bigger picture and long term outcomes.

A solutions oriented approach, and looking to tried and tested ways is helpful this week.

Leo: Thoughts and actions take precedence for you this week. A need to actively pursue changes to your daily routine can come about by difficult conversations. Comments could get under your skin a bit, and it is easy for thoughts to be blown out of proportion. If you’re unable to understand how to takes steps towards your goals, you could find it extra frustrating now. The Full Moon could feel a bit intense at the end of the week. One door could close and another open by surprise. You are likely to be reminded of how power dynamics shape the world.

Virgo: If anyone steps on your toes and makes you feel like you’re not living up to your potential, it can be extra biting this week. To get to where you want to go, and create the life you want, sometimes an extra push is necessary, but sometimes words can go too far. Try to take the opinion of others with a grain of salt. To find your own inner peace, get grounded in your own vision, not the vision of others. A dose of self empowerment can show up at the end of the week helping you to access your source of drive and empowerment. An ethical roadmap to creating income can help you grow bigger and better ideas.

Libra: All those dreams and ideas you’ve had about getting your life in order, now it’s time to use that energy and find solutions that make you feel better about yourself. Use that new Mercury energy, fresh out of Virgo, now in your sign. It’s possible that home life could create some tension and could test your skills of diplomacy. Your words have far reaching impact now. Your powers of persuasion can attract new clients. Relationships get the main focus as the week comes to a close. The Full Moon could be dramatic and remind you that peace and harmony are what you really want.

Scorpio: Self worth and self love continue to be important factors in your psychological development this week. Hugs can make you feel like a different person. What you think other people mean by what they say may not be clear. The tone of words can get your imagination going, especially if there is an aggressive or harsh approach. It can be difficult to find peaceful solutions when there is anger and irritation involved. Grounding yourself in your goals and work can help you collect yourself. The Full Moon reminds you to trust your instincts when it comes to work. A wake up call about your lifestyle and habits can show up suddenly.

Sagittarius: You don’t need to compare yourself with those in your social circle, but it can be difficult not to cast judgment now. This is especially true if you feel limited financially, and others are gloating or have their nose up in the air about their own financial success. Nobody really likes a braggart. Choosing people that inspire you to be inventive, and remind you how to feel free, are a good choice for camaraderie now. Focus on expanding your creative side this week and you could be surprised by the results.

Capricorn: With Mars now in your sign, along with powerful Pluto, you could come across as more demanding or aggressive than you realize. Your strong personality with a dose of ego can possibly make diplomacy difficult. Dealing with those that have an authoritative stance can feel like butting heads, especially if you feel like you deserve the leadership role. The need for diplomatic measures is heightened this week and your choices make a big difference in end results. Heated arguments with family are possible. The truth is a significant factor in any power struggles now. It’s a good idea to channel the athleticism of Mars and burn off excess energy with exercise.

Thoughts and words really do go a long way. A look at your internal dialogue is emphasized as the week progresses. Reminders could show up suddenly and impact your way forward. Ethics and morals are up for debate and impact your philosophy on life. Your worldview needs a shift this week. Any anger issues regarding goals and career matters could show up and make it difficult to find adequate rest. Tension and restlessness are possible this week, so do try to ground yourself with friends you know usually help you feel balanced.

Pisces: Money matters between you and a peer could be a thorny issue this week. If you are lending someone a lot or if you are owed it could feel like a big deal and create tension. The question of what is fair and right can come up. The Full Moon can remind you of how quickly money comes and goes, and how a solid income can bring you a greater sense of freedom. Take some time to assess the way you’ve been relating to money matters. It could be the push you need to be more serious about your career and how you value being rewarded for your efforts.
