Saturday, OCTOBER 31
The Sun forms an opposition to Uranus today, and we can encounter resistance from others or within ourselves. Unanticipated events may be part of the picture now, mainly through our relationships and the illumination of a different perspective.
This energy is rebellious and touchy, especially if we feel constrained. It’s a yearly influence that can pull up the need to review our appetite for more freedom. The drive to do something new is with us, but we may not have a clear direction or purpose yet, and it’s best to avoid making significant decisions that are hasty.
The Full Moon in Taurus occurs around the same time, and it’s fertile and potent, awakening us to our feelings or a new approach to enjoying ourselves. As it ties into the Sun-Uranus opposition so tightly, there can be surprise or abrupt elements to our epiphanies.
Full Moons always pit opposite signs of the zodiac against each other and invite us to work to balance the opposing energies. The contrast between earthy, practical, peace-loving Taurus and emotional, transformative, crisis-oriented Scorpio comes full bloom now. It’s a passionate and creative Full Moon, ripe with possibilities and learning experiences.
Intimate relationship matters, such as personal comfort levels, sexuality, and values, figure prominently now. There can be a strong urge (or need) to break free from old patterns in our relationships. Our feelings about a lingering problem or matter can become very clear now.
While there can be a tug of war between closeness and independence, we might discover ways to interact while honoring both needs. We may need to deal with distractions and feelings of discontent that can lead us along unexpected tangents.
Disruptions now may lead to a desire to explore motivations and understand meanings. We reach a point of full exposure, especially about autonomy, innovation, and independence. The desire to experience something new, exciting, and bold can figure strongly.
A Sun-Jupiter quintile contributes to a sense of growth, although we should watch for posturing rather than embracing change. We’re also heading toward a Mercury-Saturn square that has a more prolonged influence than usual with Mercury’s upcoming station, and there’s some tendency to worry and bicker.
The Moon spends the day in the earthy, practical, and steady sign of Taurus, but with its alignment to Uranus, we need to approach comfort in new ways.
