Star Wisdom | October 2011


Despite the prophecies of Mayan calendar theorists who predict the world will end this month, the rumors of our collective demise appear rather exaggerated. In fact, cultivating win-win relationships gives us plenty of opportunity to step into our potential.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Your energy, which has been held in check for the last little while, explodes outward. Having gotten to the bottom of a draining emotional issue, you shine forth now with a sustained burst of creativity that lasts all month. Take responsibility for what’s happening in a key relationship – be willing to hang in and fight for a win-win outcome.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…October is back-to-work month for you. You’re getting serious about taking the creative project you kick-started in September and getting it ready for the world. This involves structuring your time and social commitments so you’ve got the energy you need to move forward. Later in the month, you decide to get serious about a certain relationship. Juicy!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…You can probably see in hindsight that the last couple difficult months were surprisingly productive. But you’re going to like this month’s creative energy. In fact, this is the time to get serious about your three-year Saturn lesson: developing your creativity into a wealth-creating, soul-affirming channel of power. Make a plan, show up every day, and do the work.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…You need to pay attention to your foundations this month. Something that involves a spouse, business partner or other key person needs to be negotiated, nailed down, redefined or otherwise solidified. Once you get this situation squared away, you move into a much more creative and free-flowing energy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Even if it feels as if you’re struggling with a writing project (or with your thoughts in general) keep putting the work in. What you’re doing now has the potential for long-term success, so don’t let frustration cause you to give up just when you’re actually gaining momentum. Besides, with Mars in your sign, you’ve got energy to burn – so use it!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Money is a huge focus. Luckily, you come into October with a fund of momentum you haven’t enjoyed in quite some time. Combining your creativity and your ability to work hard fuels your rise to a new level of self-sufficiency this month. What you’ll find, if you’re willing to really sell out and believe in your own value, is that the Universal Matching Fund meets you halfway with unexpected support.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…You get multiple chances to redefine yourself and strengthen your ‘personal brand’ this month. Say ‘yes’ to opportunity, even if it means more work. With Saturn in your sign between now and late 2012, the hard work you put towards developing your inner strength, setting boundaries and mastering new skills will pay off in spades for the next thirty years.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You’re working hard for what feels like the umpteenth month in a row. With your ruling planet Mars in your career house all month, you surprise even yourself with your stamina and drive. Do take the odd break in the first half of the month to focus on your subconscious mind because you’re getting lots of valuable chances to release old programs of self-harm and self-sabotage. A relationship grows quite serious near your birthday.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Friends and colleagues can help you unleash your creativity and create a sustainable strategy that will lead you to your dream. Be willing to partner with others this month. Make yourself available to connect, whether physically or virtually. And then recognize that enthusiasm and optimism are good conversation starters but you need to be willing to negotiate win-win agreements to make things happen.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You get more and more certain of your strategy and increasingly confident that the integrity with which you’re pursuing your personal vision will pay big dividends. While others around you flail in fear and uncertainty, you’re solid as a rock this month. No surprise, then, that this aura of stability you’re exuding brings you at least one plum opportunity.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…A lovely bridge appears that links your spirituality and beliefs with your relationship sector. Many of you have had an interesting go of it in relationship the last few months; you seem to get a new lease on partnership in October. It’s as if you finally understand what you’re looking for and this knowledge enables you to quit pushing so hard and let it happen. Good for you!

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…If I didn’t know you better, I’d say you were completing some kind of merger and acquisition deal this month. Maybe you are! You’re growing into your power in a very organic way and you feel ready to step forward in your community or profession. The resources you need are available; be ready to demonstrate how you’ll put them to good use.
