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

Mars meets Pluto in Capricorn this week. The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22, 2016

The Full Moon in Aries hits its maximum on Sunday, October 16, 2016 at 12:23 am EDT. By Sunday morning and thereafter, the Moon will slowly begin to wane this week, and prepare us for the New Moon in Scorpio coming up in a couple of weeks.

You can read what I've written about the Full Moon in Aries already published in last week's Weekly Horoscope here and the Daily Horoscope here.

Venus enters Sagittarius on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at 3:01 am. Sending good vibes and loving energy around in social circles feels better than usual. Love becomes more philosophical. We understand the meaning of life better when we experience love for one another. Whether it’s romance or platonic relationships, a good hug makes a world of difference.

People who need to be cheered up will appreciate a loving touch. Experiencing your senses with greater appreciation makes life more enjoyable. Exploring a wider variety of food and flavors, and all things delightful and beautiful can be a saving grace. Enthusiasm for life and love is essential to creating a healthier, more balanced world.

A growing interest in nature is likely to increase for many of us. Herbs, plants and natural fragrances of essential oils can bring liveliness, comfort and joy to your space.

With Mars meeting Pluto in Capricorn on October 19th, 2016 it can get feisty in the political arena. Lots of aggressive, destructive behavior and attitudes are sure to show up and have the potential to change anything or everything. Any lies or corruption pitted against one another in politics and business is sure to create some chaos.

Mars is the warrior, Pluto is the powerhouse. People who are power hungry are likely to show us their metaphorical fists this week, and we’ll likely discover more of what’s behind the scenes. Mars and Pluto meeting are heavy hitters, and can leave a potent mark. Mars is fast, extrovert and strategic, while Pluto is intense power below the surface that can create dramatic change. Do not be surprised by hearing lots of offensive, objectionable content from or about political figures or head honchos this week.

As politically motivated fears and overwhelming displays of ego are likely to increase at this time, if you feel stressed or if your fears are raised at all, remember that love dissolves fear. Negative thoughts and feelings can be the catalyst to positive karmic changes for yourself. The world works in balancing the spectrum of positive and negative.

Remember when Mars was retrograde in Scorpio this last spring and summer, I talked all about the significance of behavior, attitudes and motivations behind the scenes. This meeting of Pluto and Mars brings more attention to this in the political, business and financial sectors. It would not be surprising to see more bombshell information about the reality of politics, business or the economy this week.

Also, remember that Pluto stationed Direct on September 26, 2016.

Read more about when Mars stationed retrograde on April 16th, and when Mars entered Scorpio while retrograde on May 27.

On Thursday, October 20th, Mercury and Uranus are having a strong debate. Quick exchanges of words can lead to a sudden shift in awareness. Opinions can change quickly when new information arises this week. Reactions and motivations can be just as quick. A juggernaut of information can upend many with lots of media saberrattling.

The freedom of the individual mind vs. adherence to a group mentality is up for debate. What is and is not acceptable, right and wrong, are looked at from a full spectrum of considerations, personal and societal. People want peace, freedom and truth - how to get it is up for discussion.

The Sun enters Scorpio on Saturday October 22, 2016 at 7:45 p.m. EDT.

This is one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is getting cooler, the air is crisper and fresher, the nights are longer and life becomes more festive over the next few months.

We identify with our emotions and a more mystical, esoteric side of life when the Sun is in Scorpio. This is the time to tap into your psyche, even discover psychic gifts, or enjoy exploring forms of divination like tarot, runes, i-ching, astrology, etc.

The Sun in Scorpio can also bring up the more dramatic side of life, and with Pluto and Mars in Capricorn now, it won’t be surprising to see a hunger for power demonstrated in political moves. This political season can bring madness this autumn.

Whatever you are emotionally involved in, an intensity can be with you over the next few weeks. An interest in sensuality is associated with Scorpio as well. However power games, jealousies and emotional drama can also rise in relationships.

So... this can be a highly dynamic, active, potent week. We can help to balance that more with positive thinking and doing good things in our own lives. I'll be sending out good intentions to everyone.

I’ll talk much more about what’s happening this week with the Daily Astro Advice Horoscopes.

Astro Advice for October 16 to 22, 2016

Read Your Daily Astro Advice Horoscopes every day for more.

Aries: This week you could feel a bit defensive. Words could get crossed. Try your best not to jump to conclusions. There’s a lot of huff and puff going on right now, and you could start to feel it get under your skin. Irritability can lead to motivation and action - be sure you have good motives before you act. The need for independence and power can create tension. Time to yourself to think is worthwhile. Conversations with those you trust and are more agreeable with can lead to some amazingly brilliant ideas.

Taurus: You’ve been feeling the need to get more organized and balanced in your life I’m sure. Cleaning out your files and paperwork is a good idea lately and is especially helpful this week. Getting your head out of the clouds and finding clarity in the information around you will lead to better decisions. A growing interest in how to enjoy your financial possibilities is likely. Spending on what brings you a dose of happiness can be especially enticing now. Do be extra attentive to driving and drivers this week, and do be extra careful of your spine and back.

Gemini: Disagreeing with someone in your social circle can completely change your perspective on who you identify with as a friend. It doesn’t have to be an actual conversation, it could simply be how you observe someone using a different approach or accidentally overhearing a random opinion that ends up shifting your perceptions of others and yourself. If you’re working on a creative project with someone, expect light bulb moments to spark big ideas. If you invest or are dealing with banks, loans and related financial issues, this week could have dramatic shifts. Do be ready with a strategy if policies change.

Cancer: The Full Moon begins this week. A big shift in your perspective on career and home life is set to arise. Assessing the pros and cons and the give-and-take balancing act you need to keep yourself feeling positive and abundant is important now. If other people seem like they are changing, power hungry, or aggressive, it could affect you. Deep down you’re sensitive and hard hitters can impact your emotions strongly. In the process you discover more about your own convictions. Self care, rest and personal time near the end of this week is recommended.

Leo: It can be difficult to make up your mind sometimes. There’s a lot to consider. New information that arrives this week can throw you for a loop and give you a new worldview. Conversations can surprise you or inform you that it’s a good idea to think about your future. A change in perspective can magically wake you up to living life in a new way. Dealing with issues of power at work, or in your everyday life, can be highly obvious this week. Policies and rules can get irritating as well now. Wondering what your real goals in life are can create a potent change in your motivations and actions as the week progresses.

Virgo: New information about work and money matters can show up out of nowhere this week. Your money situation needs to be tightly controlled in order to feel balanced, but sometimes rules of financial institutions or creditors can get in the way. In finances, it’s a good idea to ask questions so you are clear. How decisions create reality is in stronger focus this week. There is much tension available from a lot of angles. Virgo’s like information and order. When you see dramatic, out of control behavior in the media, especially by politicians, the misuse of power can have you question the reality we’re creating.

Libra: You need balance. Too many sudden changes and requests can be too much. If you’re distracted and all over the place, you need to get your mind to come back to center. Focus on you. What you want and need is important. If you have disagreements with family, it won’t be surprising if they escalate this week. Power struggles at home over rules and how things should be done can create a lot of tension. Finding some independence can be exactly what you need to wind down this week as the Full Moon winds down.

Scorpio: Venus leaves your sign this week on Tuesday. Try to keep the self love going though. Your money situation comes more into focus over the next few weeks. Doing what you love is not always easy, but it is possible. Contemplating and meditating on your lifestyle can lead to sudden revelations that inspire you to be more. Note the synchronicities, those coincidences you can’t ignore. At the end of the week the Sun arrives in Scorpio to kick off the season of your birthday. Focus on what you want to become.

Sagittarius: Look to mentors and peers to inspire your creativity this week. Those who have beautiful minds can lead to brilliant eureka moments. Self love and esteem becomes a priority when Venus enters your sign early this week. Taking care of yourself, and spending money on yourself can lift your spirits and remind you that you’re worth it. If you feel like you are working more than hard enough to earn your money, you could find your motivations make a big shift this week. A strategy can give you a lot of power.

Capricorn: You are the powerhouse this week. Mars and Pluto meeting in your sign signifies strong willed, determined power. If you are feeling the Mars energy too much you could be highly irritable, and it will likely be difficult to hide. Do be careful that you are not stepping on people’s toes or pushing your will on others to the extreme. You may not notice how much power your personality possesses this week. Your powerful qualities can work in certain roles to get things done, but excesses and dominance can often be too overpowering for others to handle. There is a difference between being a boss and a leader.

Aquarius: New ideas spark for you when you’re having debates. The ideas you have on Sunday, the day of the Full Moon, are worth revisiting and exploring further this week. Conversations that explore more than one side of an issue helps you to come up with solutions and realize your potentials and options. If you’re single, socializing with peers and groups can more easily present you with a new love interest. It is possible that excess energy can result in insomnia, even nightmares. If you’re worried about issues largely out of your control, you’ll have to imagine new strategies and create boundaries for your peace of mind.

Pisces: The Full Moon comes and goes quickly this week, bringing emphasis to your finances. Your debt situation needs you to be on top of things so you can feel better balanced. Think outside the box about how to pay down your debts. It’s a time to think of solutions to financial issues. The more you discuss and look into your financial matters, the more intelligent your choices will become. If you encounter anyone that is overly pushy, bossy, aggressive or demanding, it’s best to step away and find your comfort zone. There can be plenty of tension others are feeling this week and it can rub off.

I am so glad you enjoy these horoscopes. My hope is that you find them useful for your life.
