The Planets This Week: October 8, 2018

This week, the focus is in relationships. We have a New Moon in Libra, love planet Venus and passion planet Mars battle it out in the heavens along with the Sun and powerful Pluto. Communication planet Mercury shifts into Scorpio so conversations will be intense.

The Libra New Moon shifts our attention to relationship issues with business associates, our sweetheart and friends. Cooperation is vital to a harmonious life. We should Consider the bonds that we have with others. Compromise is at the heart of peaceful coexistence. Respect, love and trust are generally earned, so ponder how to develop these qualities within relationships. Address balance issues if you’re involved in an unequal association.

Also, this week, love planet Venus forms a challenging square to passionate Mars. Desire-driven physical urges can be very strong, almost irresistible. We tend to do what we want and not think about the consequences until later. If libido is getting the best of us, a passionate rendezvous will help.

With the Sun forming a challenging square to Pluto power struggles are practically unavoidable this week. It could be quite an emotional time as a result. It’s all about power plays that will seem to come out of nowhere, and they could blow up really fast.

Communication planet Mercury moves into Scorpio. We may seek deeper meaning and core truths. We’ll dig beneath the surface to get to the bottom line, mentally clearing away meaningless data and uncovering the essence of what’s really important. Intellectual intensity can turn into obsession – once our mind latches on to an idea or train of thought, we won’t want to let go until we’ve taken it to its logical conclusion.

Tune in on Monday 6pm PT/9pm ET to find out more…
