Micro-Forecast: October 22 to 28, 2018

On Tuesday, the Sun moves into tropical Scorpio for a few weeks. Its passage usually signifies the transition between the autumn and winter because it is the mid-point of these two seasons in the Northern Hemisphere. (It is the transition time from spring to summer in the southern hemisphere-something I have never been able to wrap my head around. Since earliest roots of Western astrology began in the Northern Hemisphere, I suspect that explains this perspective.)

The big Full Moon on Wednesday, October 24 is the 90-day segment after the Total Lunar Eclipse of late July 2018. This is an important week of ‘ah ha’ moments, insights and decisions. That full moon was lined up with Uranus, the planet of in-the-moment changes. There are moments in all our lives where we really do get it. Where we really do understand that we need to make a choice regarding which direction we will take now that winter is approaching. Scorpio is, after all, about choice.

The Sun will transit over retrograding Venus on Friday, October 26. Light may be shed on an existing relationship that has remained confusing.
