Supermoon and Venus Power Adventures

By Holiday Mathis

October 16, 2016 6 min read

The supermoon in Aries brings a sense of urgency to the adventures that will begin with Venus traipsing through the Sagittarian realm. Meanwhile, there are distracting background noises creeping up in volume — a hush of sand funneling through the neck of the hourglass, the tick of the second hand, the slick swipe of a turning page. "But at my back I always hear time's winged chariot hurrying near." — Andrew Marvell

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To find out what works for you, rule out what doesn't. Scientists say there are no failed experiments because there's always something to learn from the outcome of an action. What you'll learn from the outcomes this week is that you benefit from launching as many "experiments" as possible. You can't do too many!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You know your weaknesses and will spend time developing the compensatory set of emotional and behavioral tools needed to shore up your vulnerabilities. Your talent for finding fast, simple, clean solutions will not only work for you; it will float you high in the esteem of others and get you appointed to a position.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're constantly considering, debating and weighing options as you pinball through your week. While it may feel like these mental exercises are dinging and pinging you around to no avail, you're actually evolving just beautifully. Trust this and you've one less thing to worry about. Don't stop to measure until Friday.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). On the next voyage, you'll reminisce about this one. In fact, you should take a few more pictures of the ordinary things around you — the walls and furniture, your car — these are the things that future-you will love to see again. Regarding a midweek decision: no rush! Your advantage will grow as you take your time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to work, you really do — or maybe you just want to have worked. Either way, you can't wait to kick back and enjoy the satisfaction and fruits of your labor. The key to this will be to get good at psyching yourself up. You'll have to cheerlead, cajole and trick yourself, but the potential for productivity is great this week.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A leveling process is taking place. Excess will be scraped off and shifted toward the empty. Stay aware of the emotions of others. Sometimes it will be best to make the change suddenly and swiftly. Then there are times when slow and easy moderation makes it easier for everyone to get into the new groove.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you could choose what you were attracted to, it might not be this. And yet this will benefit you in beautiful and perfect ways. Let it draw you in. Like planets revolving around the sun, the gravitational pull has a way of organizing things naturally, elegantly and with a pattern that will work for many years to come.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Because you've done so much on your own lately, you've nearly forgotten how things can, at times, develop much easier and faster inside of a group effort. While that's not always the case, in this week's tribal convergence of sorts, you'll find clarity of purpose and the support needed to lift and send your project.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A true adventurer, sometimes you feel that your home is wherever your travels take you. As you grow even more comfortable your range of options grows wider as well. This week your satisfaction will depend more on the people involved than the circumstances or environment you land in.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You aim to invest a superior quality of attention and care in your loved ones, even those particular loved ones who cannot possibly return your level of devotion. Do balance this investment out with reciprocal relationships and/or intense self-care. Preventative action will help you avoid burnout.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Remember when you suffered the sweetest condition — all fire and mystery and hypnosis? Well, brace yourself if you can, because that delicious affliction will have you back in its clutches before the year is over. In fact, you may already feel the love sickness creeping in as a kind of slow-growing fascination.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This set of problems you've been working on, well, you probably feel like it's getting pretty old about now. Time for a new set! It's your week to hit the solution sandbox and wrap these up. Brainstorm like mad. Try the obvious answer first. If it doesn't work, try the opposite. If that doesn't work, try orthogonal.

THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: This solar passage will augment your emotional bank account and fulfill you in ways you didn't even know were possible. Next month brings many interactions with someone who is just your brand of fun. There will be much shuffling of priorities, logistics and commitments going into 2017, and you'll hit a wonderfully productive groove in February, allowing you to accomplish a goal quickly and set some new, more challenging aims in April.
