There is a bit of tension brewing as we head into this weekend with Mercury making an irritating inconjunct aspect with Neptune in Pisces— challenging us to think creatively while maintaining our grip on reality. As we close out the weekend, Venus will be coming into square with Saturn, prompting us to take a realistic look at the structures we’ve created for ourselves within our relationships, all the while Mercury’s conjunction with the Sun in Libra has us our minds racing as we attempt to gain perspective by scrutinizing over the details as we weigh out all of the options that have been presented to us over these past couple of weeks.
Friday (10/6): Mercury in Virgo comes into an inconjunct/quincunx aspect with Neptune in Pisces today— showing there may be a tendency to over-rationalize and over-think things, leading to unnecessary stress and anxiety. On the flip side, people may fall more toward the Neptunian end of this transit, falling prey to escapism through fantast, illusion, drugs, alcohol, and spiritual bypassing as a means of avoiding the cold, hard, practical reality of intense circumstances brought up to the surface with the help of yesterday’s Full Moon in Aries. The trick here is to utilize this Neptunian and Mercurial energy in the form of creative thinking and problem solving. Utilizing our imaginations to tackle any issues we are facing today, and taking short breaks from reality when things feel overwhelming will help us all to make the best use of this tricky aspect!

Saturday (10/7): No major planetary aspects. The Moon will be exalted in the grounded and sensual sign of Taurus.
Sunday (10/8): Venus in Virgo comes into a challenging square with Saturn in Sagittarius, causing us to get real when it comes to our relationships as well as our finances! This aspect can cause us to feel limited and restricted in our closest partnerships, and will leave us aching to let go of burdens and responsibilities in our relationships that are holding us back from truly experiencing balance, harmony, and the pleasure we seek. Boundary issues in relationships can be up for review as well, and we’ll likely be tightening our belts when it comes to our finances. This aspect is great for reassessing our relationships, as well as our material wealth, and creating a better structure for our lives moving forward.
The Mercury in Libra comes into conjunction with the Sun today, sharpening our minds and helping us to gain some perspective over the details as we weigh out all of the options that have been laid out in front of us. Mercury conjunct the Sun is excellent for regaining clarity over situations that have left us confused, anxious, or stumped. Decision-making can become much easier moving forward if we utilize this energy to assist us in making plans for the future. The best options are those that are in alignment with our own self-interest as well as the highest good of the people in our lives we love most.
Have a beautiful weekend! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! ☺
