Horoscope for the Week of October 19, 2003

18 October 2003

Tip of the Week:

As the Sun enters the sign of Scorpio and the hours of daylight diminish, we are more aware of the reality of the dark. Looking to the expanse of space, one might hypothesize that there exists more darkness than light. However, since the light of a candle can illuminate a whole room we know that the light is of a quality greater than darkness.

Ironically, there is infinitely more light in creation, but most of it is beyond the five empirical senses. In a world that is changing quickly, where previously hidden knowledge is becoming more accessible by the nanosecond, the stirred sediment of hidden truths is awakening fear.

As conspiracy theories abound about a 'one world order' and the encroachment of 'big brother' etcetera, it is important that we remember that the light will always prevail over the dark. The precious facts of the lower mind are the very things that often create fear and darkness. For example, the more we judge, condemn and criticize world leaders the more we feed the very darkness that we might sense that they represent. Ultimately, at the level of spirit, we are all one.

Fortunately, the idea of free choice is also gaining more recognition as well as the idea that our thoughts create our reality. With this enlightened awareness, our challenge is to remember that faith in the inherent perfection of the drama is a deciding factor in the balance between reaction and response, between dark and light. "Let peace begin with me".

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Despite the cooler autumn air, you have your reasons to feel hot and passionate. It may be that an old love or feelings that you felt before about love are entering the scene. This one aspect reflects a process of facing fears that may be occurring on other fronts simultaneously. In a sense, these are initiations to new levels. You are building upon new foundations and perceptions of security. Fortunately, you have reason to feel confident. Breathe deeply and slowly and summon the courage you need.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Creating more harmony and flow in your daily routine continues. This includes the health of your overall lifestyle. A radical and revolutionary approach is the call. It is your destiny now to cultivate an increased degree of independence in your life. This means not trying to be all things to all people. Interestingly, from this place you stand to get more of what you truly want and need. Go ahead and ask for all your heart's desires, you will get at least some of them satisfied.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

A playful, creative and expansive time continues. Yet, you feel somewhat confused about the person you are now and the directions to take. Many changes in your life continue to stir. You do have reason to feel some confidence, especially in the comfort of your home and/or at a core level of your being. Spiritual tools and techniques may however be required to instill even deeper confidence. Access as much guidance from within as you can. Anchor in your center amidst the flows of change.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

As the cold season approaches, you are happy to tend to your nest. Securing, gathering and preparing for an inward retreat, is the traditional way. At best, this is your opportunity to do some creative projects that other times of the year do not seem to afford. Travel is a likely possibility now as well. You may not go far or at least for very long, but the time is right. Identifying what you and others actually need as opposed to what you might simply want is worthy of consideration. This may be true on relationship and business fronts. Get more in tune with you and what and who else is on your list of priorities.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

Social engagements, communications, short trips, errands and other such activities continue to keep you busy. The pace will change somewhat as the Sun enters Scorpio. While this stands to be an active time, especially close to home, it also hints at creative and imaginative thinking yet, be aware of the pitfalls of over imaginative thinking. Establishing a workable base of operations is key. Take space and allow for silence as you can. Let other family members know about the space you need and honor theirs as well. Nurture a peaceful space to be productive.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

Striking a balance between creating a space that you can rely upon and being there for others continues. As the week progresses, you will feel more independent. New initiatives, short trips and dynamic interactions with significant others are all emerging themes. This stands to be a warm up for longer excursions and/or deeper studies by late November. To whom and what are you truly committed? In some respects, you have had enough and need to make certain key changes. Ask for what you desire and deserve.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21)

This is a pioneering time for you and your sights are set on the future. While this is all right, be sure to be present in the moment as you plan and strategize. After all, today is yesterday's future. Walk slowly and breathe in the autumn air. Feel where you are, what you sense yourself to be and how things are. Know that you are much more than even imagination can sense. Do not let your five senses fool you they are merely empirical. Science tells us that everything comes from nothing so this nothing must be quite something. The source is invisible but present, like air. Breathe slowly and deeply and feel fully!

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

You are on the eve of new and exciting things. However, in order to achieve success, you must be willing to take the initiative to reach out. Make efforts to see and think as others do. Learn to step outside your habitual perceptions. There is nothing matter-of-fact about perception and common sense is not necessarily good. There is always another way. Curb your expectations and judgments; endeavor to see people and things as they truly are rather than as you think, they ought to be. Celebrate individuality on all fronts.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)

Even though you are in a larger cycle suggesting that you make diligent efforts to make certain dreams reality, now is a good time to retreat for a while. Get cozy with the one(s) you love and enjoy the dream of the domestic scene. The urge to make some changes and renovations close to home might be satisfying. However, focus within rather than on the outer environment for a while. That is partly what autumn is about. Regain your quiet center to overcome reaction and plan to respond with clearer vision.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

Opportunities to gain favors and earned rewards continue this week. The time has come in your life to emphasize what makes you special. Your ability to identify a dream backed by a plan is key. Affirm your willingness to commit to 'as long as it takes'. Education and/or training of some kind figures prominently. This might include travel or foreign exchange. You will learn simply be being present. Make efforts to move beyond inherited beliefs and self-concepts. Give yourself permission to experience joy!

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

The process of expanding your creative vision remains a central theme. Now, it is time to nurture, cultivate and give as necessary to actualize your dream visions. While reputation does have its place, anchor into what you personally value and cherish. It is as though you are the actor learning to be the producer. This implies that you happily step out of the limelight. Often, we can achieve more behind the scenes. Push for the changes that will liberate more time and creative leadership.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

A period of purging of habitual patterns and perspectives is ending. Now, it is time to both deepen and to expand your focus. This stretch will require courage and concentration. Fortunately, you are experiencing liberations in consciousness. Compare where and how you are now to this time last year! Further, you are in a bold and ambitious mood. This state of mind will continue through until spring. Push for what you want now, but be patient with the outcome. Expand your horizons!
