The Stars This Week: October 10-16, 2011
Assess Your Relationships!

This interesting week gets going with a feisty Aries full Moon on October 11, and as much as you'll want to pay attention to your own needs at this time, you'll need to consider others' desires as well. As Mercury enters problem-solving Scorpio on October 13, you're set to discover valuable new information; meanwhile, the Sun-Saturn conjunction later that same day provides serious energy! Then, on October 14, your relationships get a second look as Venus opposes Jupiter.

October 11: Full Moon in Aries
No matter what you want, you'll have to contend with the wishes of others since the Libra Sun and authoritative Saturn oppose this spunky Aries full Moon. Full Moons always trigger emotions, and in this warrior sign, you're likely to feel especially combative. Just keep in mind that if you can tap into your power and passion, you'll be able to move mountains! Focus on strengthening your relationships to further your own aims, while also advocating for others -- as well as yourself -- so you can create win-win situations.

October 13: Mercury enters Scorpio
When Mercury enters the sign that loves to probe beneath the surface more than any other, it's like having a private detective at your disposal! No matter what you need to figure out, you'll have the power to acquire supremely helpful information now. Remember, however, that no matter how deeply and passionately you feel during this transit, everyone else is bound to feel just as strongly as you do, so be sure to leave room in your conversations for all points of view. In general, this is a fabulous placement for research, writing or meditation.

October 13: The Sun conjuncts Saturn
This conjunction was prominent in the Aries full Moon two days ago, so you've already experienced the Saturnine influence this week. In fact, this is reality-check time, so anything you haven't yet faced is bound to appear on your radar screen now. You'll be asked to stand in your authority, so do realize that plenty of rewards await down the road if you step up now! Align yourself with those who have clout and the ability to help you. This is an important new cycle -- take advantage of it and you'll be sure to profit.

October 14: Venus opposes Jupiter
When Venus in Scorpio opposes Jupiter in Taurus, you'll feel compelled to weigh the costs and benefits of your most important relationships. Since you're looking for a way to balance your need to follow your own path with your desire for togetherness, this placement is about either coming together or realizing that, philosophically or socially, you're at opposite ends of the see-saw. Either way, you're examining the pleasure principle ... and whether or not it's in your life! Also remember that because money signs are in play here, this is a good time to assess your spending habits.
