The dominant theme this week circles around investigation. Mercury in Scorpio is particularly useful in this setup. Scorpio is the sign of the deep, dark researcher who is unafraid of going places others fear to tread. It is in the deep recesses of the hidden that the truth may finally surface. We see the stage is perfectly set for such an event to unfold. We can’t predict what will be uncovered but we can see the potential in every aspect. In addition, the Sun squares Pluto. Pluto is the co-ruler of Scorpio and this aspect may shine a light on that which has been cloaked under a veil of deceit This theme will only grow stronger over the coming weeks and may peak when Mars snaps into a square with Saturn and Pluto during the last week of October and the first week of November. Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st of October and that may set the stage for a review of events from the past. Retrogrades are ideal opportunities to delve deeply and to try and reverse a decision, or at least reconsider our trajectory. How does this impact you? Each of us will feel this theme, but we will each feel it differently. Where will you feel it?

To add fuel to the planetary fire this week we also witness Mars, (the other ruler of Scorpio,) step into Libra. This was addressed in last week’s write-up, but it is still valid today, and worthy of noting once again. While in the cardinal air-sign, Libra, Mars is particularly active and effective. The air influence of Libra on the fiery planet of action is potent and may supply the oxygen necessary to drive the investigation that gets sparked by the Mercury, Pluto, Uranus connections. In this capacity, Mars serves as the spark or the trigger that sets events in motion. We may have to wait for the alignments to become more precise, but the underlying themes are there and are simply waiting for the exactitude to occur. While Libra is about balance, Mars, by contrast, is all action and aggression. In this setting Mars may provide the impetus to set the wheels in motion. It is this type of inter-relatedness of planet-to-planet, in specific signs, that provides the appropriate backdrop for such events to occur. Stepping back from this hot spot of potential, it is not hard to envision a spark (Uranus) that is driven by a need for balance (Mars in Libra) that fuels the curiosity (Mercury) to dig deeply and uncover the truth (Pluto.) Ultimately, the universe wants balance in all that it initiates and commands. Astrology identifies the players (the planets) and the roles they may play in the coming week.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Expect to see action regarding your power or occupation come into a potential conflict with close friends and partners. You may find that you disagree with the opinions of those close to you and feel emboldened to respond. Also be aware of a bit of tension in financial circles. That can mean income or outgo.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your primary relationships are the most prone to activity this week as Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus. You may not see eye-to-eye with a close friend or significant partner or you may be surprised by an action they initiate. Careful when working with business associates as they might not be as honorable as you might imagine.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Keep your ear to the ground for possible shake-ups at work this week. This can go either way, but you could be surprised. Connections between close personal friends and partners could be cloudy or confusing. Are you getting the right message? Try to gain clarity especially on health and wellness topics as well.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Keep an eye on topics that bridge children or creative ideas and business associates. While that may sound unlikely, consider how that might play out. A creative project you have in mind might be dismissed suddenly by team to which you belong. Just the opposite is also likely and you could be surprised by an acceptance of your ideas.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A surprising turn of events could bubble up that involves your work/life balance. This is a theme that has the potential to go either way so be aware. A restlessness may permeate your thoughts on your occupation. A conversation with a sibling could have a ripple effect that you could not see coming that significantly changes the dialog.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A surprising turn of events that involves travel and educational plans may shake up your world this week. Research and even legal documents might prove to be pertinent so keep an eye on that as well. A budget or resource issue could arise that may have a permanent impact on your life, either way. Heads up.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A surprising shift in a resource or budgetary projections could force you to alter your plans in some capacity. Look to large organizations such as banks, insurance companies and elderly relatives for the source of the topic. This can be quite thrilling so don’t turn negative on this, just be aware and prepare.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Sparks may fly this week especially with regard to your relationships. Uranus in retrograde may prompt an unusual response from either your primary partner or close personal friend. While most of us jump to a negative conclusion, the opposite is equally as possible, so bear that in mind. Be aware of get-rich-quick schemes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Unexpected news may arrive that pertains to your health and wellness. Remember, that such events can turn in several directions. You may be feeling quite altruistic and expansive especially with family or with topics that involve your primary residence. Be cautious around business associates who have an agenda that seems ill-conceived.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Watch for unusual connections with business associates or anyone with whom you collaborate. Ideas are quite spontaneous this week so try and capture that energy and guide to a purposeful outlet. You may be at odds with people at work and your attention may be drawn to breaking free of something.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Restlessness may encompass your mood this week especially with topics that involve your home and family. You may feel driven to shake things up. Be apprised of travel and education choices, the outcome of which could linger for some significant period of time. Topics about money may involve business partners. Exert caution.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Research may turn up some rather unusual information in documentation. How you handle this information may be critical to its importance. Large organizations, legal topics and dealings with business associates might prove to be challenging. Get your facts straight before acting. Travel and educational topics may prove to be quite revealing.
