Stargazer 

For week of October 25-31, 2001

For All Signs The Saturn/Pluto opposition, the effects of which began in May and continue for another year, is now accented strongly by Mars, the ancient god of war. Saturn opposite Pluto represents the economic downturn and the element of forced change that each of us is feeling personally, as well as globally. Given the grim political climate, this may be another important news week. As individuals, we must use special caution when driving or traveling. We are all likely to be a bit on edge, and unusually distressed about personal challenges, which is the known mindset that creates accidents. We must make an effort to hold this in mind and cut a good bit of slack for ourselves and others around us. Be aware of the tendency to reckless action.

Aries Give particular attention to the lead paragraph, Rams, because Mars is your ruling planet. General frustration with that which just refuses to budge in your life may cause you to feel irritable. Focus your attention on whatever you can change, particularly if it is a challenging project. Fuming over people and things that won't move will not help and, of course, it is bad for your health.

Taurus Please note the lead paragraph because the Saturn/Pluto opposition affects everyone in some way. One area of "forced change" for the Bulls is financial. You must see today's reality in this territory and do what you can to improve upon it. Other aspects are quite favorable this week, particularly concerning solving day to day problems. This is a week of multiple messages and errand running.

Gemini It may feel as though you are tied up in ropes this week. Actions that you want to take may be thwarted in some way by circumstances beyond your control. Your health may also be under pressure, particularly teeth and bones. Fortunately your sign is known for its flexibility in the midst of change, and you can rely upon your ingenuity and brainpower to help you through most every situation that arises.

Cancer Forward motion toward your goals may be somewhat blocked this week, due to circumstances beyond your control. Just follow the open doorways now, and have patience. The frustration is temporary. Take particularly good care of your physical body this week. You are so very sensitive to the environment, and there is crisis all around you. It will not help to "swallow" everyone's difficulties.

Leo During most of this year there has been a deception or a misunderstanding concerning a significant other or a partner. At this time new clarity and information comes to light. The facts may not be pretty, but at least you know a more realistic version and can deal more directly with the issues. Someone may "attack" or attempt to provoke you. Now is not the time to yield to impulsive responses.

Virgo The Saturn/Pluto opposition affects us all. For your particular sign, it is forcing change in the arenas of career, along with family and/or property. This is pressure, but has been developing for a long time, so there should not be surprises. You are at a point of needing to handle problems in these areas that have needed attention. You've known this on one level or another for months.

Libra You are among the few signs that are not directly affected by the difficult aspects of this week. However, your ability to counsel, to negotiate, and to soothe ruffled feathers may be in great demand. Activities related to education, business, and legal affairs have positive aspects. You are held in high esteem by more people than you realize. So you are in a good position to heal wounds and lend an ear.

Scorpio Mars is one of your ruling planets, so give particular attention to the lead paragraph. Your personal stressors are in the financial area. There may be concerns about an elderly person, or one who is ill. The Scorpion has a powerful need to control things, for self as well as beloved individuals. Just right now, all you can control is yourself, so you will feel better if you can be still and let the river flow as it will.

Sagittarius You may become aware of anger or grief that you previously put out of your mind, in an effort to maintain control. You are having difficulties with a partner or authority figures in your life during this period. This may be a critical time in that saga and it is not useful to allow your temper to run your mind. Find an appropriate outlet. Fortunately there is help available from a consultant or one whom you employ.

Capricorn Use particular care with your personal health this week. Listen to your body. Don't take on physical projects that are too much for it. You may become aware of anger or sorrow that has been brewing for awhile now, perhaps just below your consciousness. This is the time to give it an appropriate outlet. Seek the counsel of someone you trust.

Aquarius A misunderstanding that began last January arrives at yet another point of clarity this week. Hopefully, this is the end of that story. Please read the lead paragraph. You are also experiencing the Saturn/Pluto pressure in a personal way, just as everyone else is. You are asked to see reality in the arenas of children, lovers, gambling, friendships and community contacts. Things must change.

Pisces A decision or a personal resolution of last January now comes to a point of full flower, in which you can see the outcome. You may be tempted to give in to old addictions of one type or another this week because you desire "escape." It is a very short cycle. Keep yourself occupied until the 31st and you will feel better. The stresses of others become benefits for you in some way. You did not wish harm on anyone, so don't swallow guilt.
