The week opens in the active seismic window of the October 28th Taurus lunar eclipse. Keep your agenda light, as both personally and collectively much that has been concealed or hidden will begin to reveal itself. Refuse to be carried away by fake dramas and overreaction stirred up by the Scorpionic Sun/ Mars opposition to the eclipsed Moon and Jupiter.
Adding to the high stakes, stationing all week at his most impactful, on November 4 Lord of Time and Karma Saturn turns direct at 0 degrees Pisces, reactivating the degree of his entry into Pisces back in March 8th 2023. Saturn reached 7° Pisces on June 18th before turning retrograde and backtracking over these degrees. He will move forward until June 30 2024 reaching 19° Pisces. Check your chart to find which area of your life will be Saturnised – stripped back to its essence.
Pay attention now to any part of your life where you’ve been cutting corners, hiding your head in the sand or evading responsibility…there’s no more hiding from the consequences. Saturn means business. Resist any tendency to self-sabotage, through toxic habits or addictive behaviour, or to be a rescuer or a victim.
Saturn means business, testing your life structures-finances, relationships, career- for fitness for purpose. If you are building on shifting sands, Saturn’s relentless scouring ensures its collapse.
As Saturn turns forward, choices have to be made and stances taken:
- actions matter more than intentions
- be impeccable with your word
- if you are lacking sobriety and accountability, you are likely to drown
- consistently deliver more than you promise
- be kind and sensitive to the more vulnerable, messy, or chaotic parts of yourself

A field of dandelions.
“Teeming with mass consciousness. You feel yourself to be as anonymous and undifferentiated as you can possibly be. Hiding in this identification is comfortable and safe and it can be prolonged indefinitely. While you wait here with individuality suspended, the most remarkable discoveries can take place. In particular, you are welcomed and invited to know the ancestors, to know the collective, to know the sweep of evolution intimately and compulsively, to be swept along on the tides of time. Eventually it satiates itself. And then you are sprung very fresh and very new, to be free in the world.”

Limiting or negative beliefs restrict your options-what are yours?

Leo Weekly Forecast: October 29-November 5, 2023
Saturday’s emotional lunar eclipse activated two of the key angles of your solar chart-your 10th/4th Houses symbolising your purpose and your sense of belonging. Something has ended and yet while the eclipse dust settles, it’s far too early to see what’s emerging in its place. As Lord of Time and karma Saturn turns forward in your deep 8th House of shared hopes, dreams and resources, focus on strengthening your roots and the ties that bind.
“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” ~ T S Eliot
Virgo Weekly Forecast: October 29-November 5, 2023
The lunar eclipse on October 28th marked an ending for something that began around November 2021.It could be a project, a program of study or a pilgrimage of some sort.

On November 4th, Saturn turns forward in your opposite sign nudging you to clear the decks, rig the sails and be ready to set off on a new adventure.
“It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.” ~ Paulo Coelho
Libra Weekly Forecast: October 29-November 5, 2023
On the heels of two eclipses involving your personal planet Venus, it’s hard to see the wood for the tress. Emotions are running high, so wait until after November 4th when practical Saturn turns direct before you make any significant decisions. This especially applies to your finances as circumstances around you that you thought were solid will transform in the next 6 months, affecting your income and resources.
See it as an opportunity to find a bigger platform.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: October 29-November 5, 2023
Saturday’s lunar eclipse was the last in a series of 7(!) across Taurus/Scorpio since November 2021.Frame these as canal lock gates lifting your boat higher and higher until you can see a panoramic 360 view. In your case, this means your people landscape, especially one significant other. You’ve changed and they’ve changed and perhaps it’s time to clarify and renegotiate those unwritten “rules” that can make or break your partnership.
The contract is up for renewal.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: October 29-November 5, 2023
Saturday’s emotional lunar eclipse may stir up some nostalgia about childhood dreams or happier times gone by, never to return. Meanwhile Saturn, Master of Time, turns forward at the base of your chart starting a new chapter at home and in your tribe. You might be considering a move or a renovation or taking on responsibility for an older family member. No need to rush into action whilst your own planet Jupiter in your 6th House is expanding your workload. Wait until your personal New Year from November 21st when the Sun returns to Sagittarius.
Family dynamics are changing.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: October 29-November 5, 2023

Whatever your passion, encourage it and indulge it.
Do more of what makes you happy.
