Weekly Astrology for October 17, 2016 by Chris Flisher

We begin the week with bright new Moon at 23 degrees Aries. This illuminating time also aligns with Uranus, the planet associated with surprise, rebellion and invention. What does a full Moon aligned with Uranus present? The combination of these two cosmic entities may deliver a revelation that startles the world or upsets what appears to be a planned trajectory. Full Moons are known for their power and ability to deliver events with startling clarity. When we combine that energy with the uncertainty of Uranus we can expect something of fairly dramatic proportions. Is this when we learn of the much-touted 'October surprise?' Is this the year the Chicago Cubs win the pennant after 100 plus years of being the underdog of major league baseball. This comment is not to speculate on what this alignment might offer but that is the type of event that might unfold. Or is this the time that the stock market tanks as it has so many other Octobers in history? Or better still, does this time herald the discovery of an inescapable flaw in one of the major candidates? A flaw that cannot be erased or forgiven? These and similar revelations are quite likely under these skies. It is the inestimable alignment of a full Moon and the unruly power of Uranus that brings such topics to the headlines. Don't be surprised if such a story breaks during this period.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

Conversations carry an unusually powerful tenor this week so use that in a positive manner if possible. We do possess a modicum of control, despite what may appear to be out of our hands. Tight lips might serve you best. Rather than exercise your usual impulsive self, try and show restraint and let the world turn.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Transitions are likely throughout the week so use that as a tool for directing events in your favor. You may be very well aware of the presence of potential change in your personal world, especially in your daily routine. Be on the lookout for game-changing exchanges that could explode and set you off on a new course quite unexpectedly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

If you are seated in an advantageous position in a group-oriented project, your creative spontaneity might dazzle the group with an innovative solution that has not yet been discussed. This lightning quick flash of insight might completely change the trajectory of the project and you might be the impetus. The iron is hot; time to strike.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Sudden news concerning your career may throw you early in the week. The potential for change is quite apparent, but the outcome may vary depending upon your personal circumstances. News of transfers or relocations may reach into your domestic security. Not all sudden news is fraught with darkness, so be open to possibilities.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your ability to be spontaneous and communicative may be your saving grace this week. Education, travel and new vistas are quite likely as you reach for answers in unconventional arenas of influence. This can be a richly expansive time for new discoveries and knowledge derived from research. If you can harness this influence you can be stellar.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Money and resources from outsiders may be quite likely this week. That does not imply coins dropping out your sky, but rather the subject of such a topic is quite probable. Re-financing, investments, and gifts from elders are also possible. To be balanced consider the opposite outcome as a possibility. Outside intervention.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Expect to see a groundswell of emotion and conversation as the Sun and Mercury align in Libra. You may be a bubbly chatterbox, but beneath it all you may be harboring a restless desire to change your domestic situation on some grand level. This can be an exciting period filled with new vistas.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21)

You may be facing a welcome transition. This may be a long-running process that has finally run its course. You may be witnessing the fruits of your labor. It may be especially important to document what has unfolded so that you have the ammunition for a later date when motives may come into question.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your primary motivation this week may be surrounding your monetary matters. Decisions made in the past may come to light and they can go either way depending upon the focus of your earlier choices. Did you act with clear conscience? Look to collaborations for the answers and the focus. Sudden disruptions are likely.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Responsibility is your key word as you begin to witness the signs of change on the horizon. You may be eager to get things moving and are forging new alliances that may bear fruit. Unexpected shifts in your domestic situation may further help your process. There is much at stake so proceed with an eye on the future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The week holds the promise of dramatic enlightenment for you. How you come to that epiphany depends on the path you have chosen. Travel and education are the most likely avenues for this awakening so try and guide your actions towards that end. Communication is a critical component and may come as a surprise.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

The topic of your income stream may yield some surprises and, of course they can go either way depending on how well you laid your financial plans in place. Support or activity from outside sources is quite likely and may come from a collaboration. Two heads are better than one, so follow that tact.
