We spend this week in the balsamic, 4th quarter moon phase which is an amazing time for shadow work, reflection and deep excavation of the cobwebs in our psyche; in order to move forward with our lives living with a sense of purpose. Perfect for Halloween. Speaking of Halloween, that very day we have two planetary shifts occurring as Venus retrograde moves back into Libra, and Mercury ingresses into Sagittarius… both leaving the sign of Scorpio. The energy will definitely feel a bit lighter for sure now.
I am so excited to announce that horoscopes I’ve written are to be posted on brides.com for the week of Monday, October 29th that afternoon. I will be writing for them again for the week of November 12th. I am honored for the opportunity. Please check them out and feel free to share them! (Again, they won’t be posted until the 29th, so the link will be broken until then).
Monday, October 29th
We begin the week on an emotional and sappy note, we’re caught up in our feels. We are sick of the same old, same old… same shit, different day type of deal. Done with monotony, we are in desperate search for a change-up of our routines. We have to be careful for the potential for this longing to send us into feelings of despair. This is a fleeting feeling that won’t last forever. It’ll pass on, so just hang on for the moment, taking it one minute at a time if you have to. Getting trapped in a cycle of negative thinking won’t help matters and it may even increase the likelihood of self-fulfilling prophecy. Find the motivation within to make the needed changes, no need to go crazy drastic, even a little change one by one is great. This isn’t a race to win, there is no competition. So take it easy on yourself. The ability is there for you to tap into overcoming this with feelings of ease and hope for overall comfort and confidence in yourself.
Luckily today, there is a fortunate aspect occurring involving Mercury and Jupiter that indicates sudden, unexpected, fortunate and amazing news is likely to be brought to your attention. This will shift the mood of the day for sure. This is an opportune time to use to manifest abundance for any areas of your life needed. We’ll begin to feel inspired, with heightened creative senses and emotional drives. At the same time however, we feel clarity of the mind and are able to look at our progress made from our pasts up until the present moment.

Tuesday, October 30th
We are increasingly noticing a trend as the week goes on of the deepening and intensity of our emotions occurring. There is a potential for moodiness, jealousy and possessiveness in our closest relationships which is a heads up to be made aware of, as it can spark arguments. This can be mended by open and honestly communicating your feelings with your loved ones. Brooding won’t help the situation: speak your mind. In addition, impulsivity is another issue that can be sparked on this day. Watch for light-switch reactions and temperaments, and flopping between extremes in emotion as well as behaviors because nervous tension is in the air, and everyone is touched by that in their own unique fashion. Along with the note of impulsivity, also be aware of the tendency to go overboard in terms of generosity. Not only could you be taken advantage of and for granted, but you could be overdoing it if you really can’t financially support this right now. It’s easy at this time to be caught up by unimportant, silly details that really don’t matter in the grand scheme of life. Be honest with yourself.
Despite these things, there are still opportunities given to us to heal our ingrained, stubborn core feelings about ourselves that are detrimental to our growth should we choose to tap into them. We can find our heart and mind working together in synchronization in mutual understanding of one another if we pay close enough attention to that instead of petty distractions.

Wednesday, October 31: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
In the middle of the night, our intellect shifts into a new focus for the time being of faith and spirituality, philosophical ideologies, craving mental independence and freedom to be ourselves, and adventures of the mind via reading and writing.
Not only that, as the day progresses we begin to focus once more on improving our self-love and worth by changing our views and re-evaluation of our relationships… including to ourselves. Our minds are sharp and thoughts are quick and fleeting we will find on Halloween. We are bound to come up with many brilliant ideas but it’s hard to keep track of them all with the speed in which they are coming and going. We also learn on this day about the power in manifesting with our own thoughts and words we use to speak internally and externally, intuitively redirecting ourselves to an improvement in self-discipline. We look at our where we are still stubborn and inflexible in our lives as well as our less desirable attributes using shadow and mirror work. This can trigger emotions to surface that are touchy subjects for us to face. Now is not the time to run to escapist tendencies. use your inner perseverance to get yourself through this moment and to discover a breakthrough.

Thursday, November 1st
This is an opportune day to work towards cleaning and purging built-up emotional stress by balancing the need to relax and taking responsibility without overloading ourselves. Heated passion desire for debates and aggressive drives are activated within us and we may be faced with people who don’t want to back down. The best thing you can do is not engage them or fuel the fire. This interaction could lead your questioning of your personal faith and spirituality but in a benevolent light.
This is another good day to spent looking into our shadow sides, realizing that what we despise most in others are traits we ourselves obtain. Having this awareness within, we can act towards fellow human beings with more empathy and compassion instead of snap judgements.

Friday, November 2nd
Towards the weekend we are given the chances to obtain a fresh start on social interactions and circumstances with refreshing new input and conversations by sharing inspirational perspectives brought into our lives. We may disagree but if we can keep level headed it won’t turn into a battle, but rather a respectful debate of opposing views where you agree to disagree. This is a good day for planning ahead and organization and we are feeling particularly mature and responsible which leads to a level contentment within. We find a new sense of gratitude over what we have endured and how far we have come in our lives.

Saturday, November 3rd
There is definitely hyper-sensitivity energy in the air at the start of the weekend and we have to be careful how we are perceiving things to avoid misinterpretations and misunderstandings regarding the intentions of others. We may feel our buttons being pushed, and need to stick by our set boundaries with people. This is a good time again this week to re-evaluate the company we keep and choices we have made up until this point in our lives.
Globally, this is a good day of indicating more of a fight against injustices for the sake of human rights.

Sunday, November 4th
We wrap up the week in our feelings, we could be beating ourselves up for our downfalls and feeling guilt, shame and remorse; vulnerability and weakness in regards to past life choices that didn’t go as planned. There is also nervous energy in the air as well which can make us a bit jumpy. We are in a delusional sense, magnifying our flaws at this time but please know this is going to pass. Use your coping skills to persevere and pull yourself back together, reach out to and check in with your loved ones. This is a bit chaotic. We may be putting too much energy, power and focus over our personal limitations as human beings and need to practice self-compassion. We need to tap into focus om what is real versus lies our heads tell us to regain stability, mental clarity and emotionally find solutions to move forward.
