Choices Have Consequences: Astrology Forecast October 13th – 20th, 2019

October 14th, 2019

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

On Sunday 13th The week starts with one of the most powerful Full Moons of 2019 whose seismic ripples will last through to at least Wednesday 16th.

There is an extremely volatile Grand Cardinal Cross from the Full Moon across the Aries/Libra axis to Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn and Node of Fate in Cancer. The Moon is conjunct female Disruptor and Awakener Eris. There is also a Grand Water trine between Mercury/Venus in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Node of Fate in Cancer. This suggests that no matter how clear cut or final decisions will appear there is still an element of smoke and mirrors which will keep everyone guessing right to the last moment.

On Monday 14th, the Sun is at odds with Pluto, on the 17th with revolutionary, take no prisoners Eris and on the 20th conjunct Haumea-bringer of epochal events. As the fallout from the Full Moon accelerates, on the world stage expect the week to bring a series of significant decisions with lasting consequences. In your own life, stay away from manufactured dramas which could turn into long running soap operas. If you channel this Plutonic energy, there is enormous potential to launch something important to you as a trailblazer and early adopter.

The Chandra Symbol for the Aries Full Moon:

An Empty Courtyard.

“Nothing is left. Reality is scattered. Self-obliterated. The familiar rendered irrelevant. Apocalyptic changes, personal and collective, take over. No being, only action. You become a projectile of intent, literally identifying with what you can do now. A barren wasteland of an inner world. A thrust outside. Stark and surreal. You feel compelled to dare, pushed over the edge, no going back–destiny as frenzy. And in this wild, volatile mix, creative forces are released that would never come out any other way. Yielding to the role of the purging and cleansing agent of changes, you are unable to wriggle out of anything ever again.”

Aries Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

It’s going to be obvious this week that in order to create the life you want, something or someone has to be left behind. You simply can’t afford to miss the opportunity the once a year Full Moon in your own sign is offering you to pioneer something new .This year, Aries is supercharged by eliminator Pluto and the karmic Node of Fate, meaning that any important decisions you make now about your way forward will have both staying power and long-term consequences. The key is to trust your instincts, your intuition and your inner sense of alignment. Instead of blindly making a big leap, check your body for either a Big Yes or a Big No, then follow the signal.

This is a launch pad so ignite destination.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

The annual Full Moon in your 12th House-the deepest part of your chart- signals a time to step back, retreat a little and listen to that inner voice which is always one step ahead of you. With both Pluto and the Node of Fate at your back and awakener Uranus in Taurus aligned with Saturn, archetype of your potential, something new and inspiring has your name on it. It’s been nudging you for quite a while to get your attention and now it’s insistent. Ask yourself: “If everything is up for grabs and nothing is a given, what would I want to create in the world and how would I go about creating it?” Just let the answer bubble up from your unconscious-don’t analyse it or ignore it. Let it percolate and simmer. In the weeks to come you will find yourself living it out, one step at a time.

Let those hidden maverick qualities and innovative ideas out to play.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

Hidden behind the full speed ahead Aries Full Moon energy, a beautiful triangle of support from your ruler Mercury to limitless Neptune and the Node of Fate is available and accessible. It’s lighting up the pinnacle of your chart, your angle of income and resources and your work and service. If you put these together, it points to using your imagination to focus your efforts into creating a new income stream. Whatever that turns out to be, make it a way to add value for others whilst allowing you to engage in one of your most heartfelt passions. It could run alongside your current job or be the beginnings of something much bigger. What matters is to allow yourself to take the first step towards turning a dream into reality.

The cage door is wide open.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

If all you want to do is have a duvet day or even a duvet month, no one would blame you. This entire year has been relentless in removing the floorboards from under your feet along with your comfort zones, not to mention putting you in situations not of your making. And now the annual Full Moon at the pinnacle of your chart this Sunday is presenting you with some unavoidable decisions, which will have long term implications. There is a way through and Saturn holds the key: strengthen your foundations by making selfcare an absolute priority. That doesn’t mean having bubble baths or spa days- although why not? – but looking after your health, your habits, your home, your relationships. Real wellbeing supports you emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually and you of all the signs, deserve it.

Resting in the comfort of your own care.

Leo Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

The potent Full Moon in compatible Fire sign Aries could make you edgy and anxious to do something-anything-to feel as if you’re making progress. Take a step back and ask yourself:” What’s really driving me? what does progress mean to me anyway? Am I following someone else’s idea of success?” These are not theoretical or philosophical questions but a way of getting an insight into who’s actually running your life. The more space you put between yourself and the daily grind, the more clearly you’ll see the bigger picture. You need a fresh vision, wider horizons and input from people who don’t follow your rules. Open yourself up to investigating not only what might be possible but also inspiring.

No rush – enjoy following the road less travelled.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

This is a week when you’re likely to feel out of your element. There is so much assertive just -do- it Aries energy coming your way, amplified by Sunday’s plutonic Full Moon ,that you might need a refuge from the downdraft. Step away from the personal dramas going on around you and follow your own path. There is a wonderfully supportive triangle between your own planet Mercury, creative limitless Neptune and the Node of Fate, suggesting that your inner world is on the brink of an inspiring breakthrough. Find a way of expressing yourself without your usual filter of “what will people think? “ It doesn’t matter how it comes through, whether it’s writing, blogging, painting, dancing, yoga…it’s going to release a wellspring of freedom and creativity within you.

“When you focus with soul eyes, you will see home in many, many places.” Clarissa PInkola Estes

Libra Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

Sunday’s annual Full Moon in your opposite sign has huge potential for changing your usual modus operandi. Instead of feeling that it is happening to you, how about framing it as you happening to it? This completely changes your old sense of having to be constantly vigilant, waiting for the other shoe to drop, into feeling in control and on purpose. Switch around the idea that you need your closest relationships to give you security or to reassure you of your worth by balancing independence with inter dependence, instead of dependence and co-dependence. Create more time for yourself separate from joint activities and your real needs will make themselves known.

No more twisting like a pretzel to keep the peace.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

Several factors this week conspire to break the logjam of some of your oldest, most black and white ideas about yourself. To the extent they’ve been keeping you stuck on a repeat cycle, it’s welcome news. Sunday’s Full Moon marks a definite ending, while both Mercury and Venus in Scorpio are being woken up by Uranus in your opposite sign of Taurus. This is the start of a sort of inner revolution when you’ll discover that many of your long-held ideas and beliefs about how things have to be don’t belong you to you at all but are hand me downs from other people. Once you start to notice this, everything opens up and anything is possible.

Opening the doors to inner freedom.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

With a potent Full Moon in me-first Aries at odds with implacable Pluto, the landscape is littered with potential booby traps and minefields. Whilst you are still benefiting from Jupiter’s last weeks in your sign, others will be feeling stressed and extra sensitive. So be alert for falling into hoof in mouth syndrome and instead be the one who smooths the way. Cut everyone, including yourself, lots of slack and wait until the dust settles before moving ahead. Several of your most cherished hopes and dreams are simmering on the back burner-let them cook a while longer. Life has its own timing and pushing the river is counter-productive.

Empathy at the ready.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

Just like your opposite sign of Cancer, you may be longing for a duvet day or duvet week, so that the unrelenting pressure passes you by completely. Of course, if you can wangle some time out, time off or even take a short break, that would help to break what seems like an endless stress cycle. Take heart. Sunday’s Full Moon is the last across the sensitive angles of your chart until December 26th’s solar eclipse and from October 23rd, the Sun moves from the pinnacle of your chart into calmer waters. Plus, in the midst of seismic fall out of a Full Moon, it’s never a good time to make important decisions. Just because the cosmos is in full-on mode, doesn’t mean you have to be.

Chill out, not burn out.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

With both Saturn and Pluto relentlessly excavating the deepest most hidden part of your chart, forget trying to work out what is happening and open yourself to new horizons. Maybe there is no grand plan other than to live from moment to moment aligned with your heart. Ask yourself what would life be like if you dropped all your goals, plans and projections and just followed your instincts? A lot less stressful, definitely, and probably much more enjoyable. With your own planet Awakener Uranus aligned with Mercury and Venus on the angles of your chart, questing, experimenting and following your curiosity are the way to go.

Drop your templates and follow your instincts.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: October 13-20, 2019

The takeaway from this week’s and month’s astrology is to refuse to let yourself be pressured into anything you don’t 100% want. Sunday 13th’s intense Full Moon is bringing issues connected with finances and relationships to a head and that’s always a tricky combination. Others will be extra sensitive, needy and even demanding. Keep reminding yourself that just because they want a definitive yes/no answer, it may not be in your own best interests to come down one way or another. If you compromise now to keep the peace, any important decisions will be long lasting and difficult to reverse. Don’t ask for breathing space, just take it.

There’s a difference between being nice and being authentic.
