Oct. 4 - Oct 10, 2006

Libra, the Scales


The Scales: (Sept. 22 -- Oct. 22)

Energies of the week favor romance, the arts, music, and all the things we use for escape from the humdrum. Give special attention to whomever enters your life between Oct. 3rd and 8th. This person is likely to bring a message of hope and encouragement -- maybe even love.

For All Signs: Mercury, ancient messenger god, is unusually busy throughout this week. This suggests that most of us will be preoccupied with communication of one form or another. There may be many phone calls, messages, letters, quick conversations, rapid decisions, and/or papers to write. The period is favorable for probing into causes and finding the bottom line to any matter. Beware of the tendency to jump to conclusions or acting before all the facts are clear. Do not take any rumor seriously. It is probably in error.

Aries: You are moving and thinking fast this week. It may be a little too fast. Use caution when driving, with tools, and also with fire. Your reflexes are almost too quick to manage small tasks at your best. On the positive side, your body will appreciate heavy activities that require use of the large muscles.

Taurus: You are likely to encounter someone you "should" meet between Oct. 3rd and 8th. This person happens into your everyday, normal life. He/she is a teacher for you and will offer help or knowledge that can assist. It is even possible that a lasting bond will develop between you. Health issues improve.

Gemini: This is a supremely busy week for the traveling, talkative Twins. You are sorting and organizing data or things as quickly as possible and still cannot accomplish it all. It appears you are focused and intense, yet fatigued. Maybe it is jet lag? New things are happening in work/career.

Cancer: Whether you are traveling or at home, your frame of mind is happy and romantic. Good news comes concerning a family member. Any matters related to property should work out favorably. You have increased interest in art, beauty and things pleasing to the eye.

Leo: This is an excellent time for short distance travel and/or study and practice of language arts. Social activities are particularly pleasant. You likely will feel a special kinship to significant other(s) now. Your efforts in any educational arena gain applause and appreciation.

Virgo: Avoid allowing your mind to obsess over fears or things that have not yet happened. You do not have to flow with wherever your imagination wants to go. Take control and you will be much happier. Relationship(s) with significant other(s) in your life are flowing smoothly now.

Scorpio: Mercury remains in your sign for two months because it will be turning retrograde on Oct. 28 through Nov. 17. Be very cautious about making significant decisions throughout this period. The probability is strong that important factors may alter or you will change your mind later. Love life is favored now.

Sagittarius: This is a highly favorable time to reflect, meditate, and think deeply about where you are in life. Focus your attention with whatever tools you have on hand: self-hypnosis, dreamwork, journaling, or psychotherapy. Your unconscious is wanting to make contact. Encourage it.

Capricorn: A project begun on Oct. 7-8 will require approximately 10 days to complete and may not really be worth the effort. Think about it before you start. The available energies are best used to concentrate attention on something mental. Romance is unexciting, but this is temporary.

Aquarius: You may be mildly disturbed by news concerning your career, an authority figure, or place of business. Mobility may be a temporary problem. However, activities related to the law, education, and dealing with those from a distance are given a "go" signal.

Pisces: You could be the recipient of small gifts and/or favors. Small debts owed to you are paid and you may benefit from partner's resources. Activities involving travel, the law, the Internet, education, and persons from a distance are favored. All in all, a fine week for the Fish.
