tracey-81Mercury begins its retrograde in the sign of Scorpio today, and on Wednesday, the Sun will ingress the symbol of the Phoenix too. These transits describe a dense energy afoot, an influence that will force us all to take a hardcore look at ourselves without fears or inhibitions. It will be easy at first to use a more casual approach, thus ignoring certain matters we’d much rather avoid. But as I’ve been saying over the past few weeks, the times call for courage. Plunging the depths of that which brings us pain will be necessary for transcendence and transformation.

I realize this sounds pretty dark, but it is the shadow side of life (i.e. challenges, anxiety, insecurities and etc.) that keep us from the light. It’s going to take real presence and determination towards whatever makes us feel uncomfortable to bring a sense of release. This is what’s necessary to break the cycle of complacency for the sake of life fulfilling change; only a firm commitment to understanding those psychological barriers we erect that prevent inner growth will do.

 

The Scorpion energy in effect will eventually lift. But the onus is on us to do the investigative work while we have this energy in our grasp – this is what we are all being charged with in the week ahead. If life seems uncomplicated and unobtrusive, you’ve only skimmed the surface, doing yourself a disservice in the process. The grittier things get the better; allow whatever toxins and pollutants you discover along the way to serve as your guide and compass to go even further in.

 

Check your horoscopes below to see what’s in store this week ahead, and be sure to read for your Ascendant sign.

 

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at tracey@randomnessofrudy.com.

 

Aries: Aries is known to be defensive. You are ruled by the Warrior planet Mars, and so prone to get down and dirty in an altercation if challenged. You’re brave and courageous, and nobody can say otherwise. But for all your brazen, there’s a scared little child inside who doesn’t like to feel helpless and can’t stand being told they can’t do something. This week, the only person you have to prove yourself to is you. A lot of hardship could be avoided if you focused more on your personal security.

Taurus: How you relate to others is crucial, Taurus. It’s crucial because now more than ever, you need others in your life. If you don’t begin to reexamine how your fixed (even rigid) viewpoints keep others at a distance, no one will want to play with you. All of your current relationships have one thing in common – you. So please stop pointing your finger at the other person and own up to how you often times instigate the demise of certain connections. It’s time for a more thorough look.

Gemini: Something has got to give in your day-to-day, Gemini. While I understand your habit of juggling a number of tasks in the air in order to feel more productive, I worry that in the process, you may be neglecting the one thing that needs your undivided attention. What could that be? Why do you keep putting it off? As an Air sign, you’re good at finding reason and logic in any situation. But whatever it is you’re avoiding now is having an emotional effect. I suggest you analyze that. Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong! Visit www.randomenssofrudy.com for more details!

Cancer: As your year ahead expands and grows in ways you haven’t seen for quite some time, it is imperative that you show up fully present and genuinely there. This means taking the time figure out what makes you feel alive, and what gives you a sense of inner authenticity. I’ve been using that word a lot in your ‘scopes, but only because you continue to hide your true self from others. You are different and rare and unique, Cancer. It’s time you believed it about yourself, or at least pretend.  Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong!

Leo: Your sense of inner security needs to be redefined, Leo. This could be done by examining where you live and whether or not you feel safe there, or; you could take a look at certain familial foundations to see whether or not they fully sustain and support you. A third look may involve your emotional well being and how you nurture it. No matter your approach, I suspect you’ll discover some uncomfortable truths as your investigation unfolds. Thankfully, the truth will set you free.  Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong! Visit www.randomenssofrudy.com for more details!

Virgo: Mercury retrograde in the sign of Scorpio will have a profound effect on you, Virgo. You may find that communication with others leaves a lasting impression, even if misunderstood at first. On the one hand, this can be great for acutely speaking your truth and understanding all that’s not being said. On the other hand, what you say will hit hard and deep; it will be important, then, to be exact with some level of compassion. There is a feeling tone in everything you say. Watch your tone.

Libra: It’s time to be firmly committed to whatever it is you value. If it’s a relationship, express your bottom line. If it’s money, stick to your budget. If it’s a career move, map out a solid plan. There’s no pussyfooting allowed here, Libra, as your reputation is on the line. How you show up to life, make use of your skills and talents and prove to folks that you are worthy is something only you can cultivate. It’d be naïve to assume that others simply know – they need hardcore proof and evidence.  Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong!

Scorpio: To add to what I said in your ‘scope last week, about a slow down taking effect courtesy of Mercury’s retrograde in your sign; I should point out that the inner reflection to commence involves a thorough review of how your thoughts sometimes sabotage your reality. Notice I said sabotage not create, because you Scorpios tend to have a pessimistic view of life. There’s another dimension to this energy that reflects your destined way ahead. It’d be better to believe in all the possibilities. Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong!

Sagittarius: The exhaustion you experience this week will be twofold. First, you’ll find that the pace of life comes to a standstill making it difficult to move plans forward, and as a result; your energy will become self reflective and focused on issues that have been repressed and now need to be revisited. This could be anything from a past incident never addressed to an emotional fear that suddenly bubbles to the surface. Use this time, then, to just chill – not much else is going on anyway.

Capricorn: Your social life is now filled with new gatherings, networking activities and other forms of commingling. However, don’t be surprised if schedules change in the blink of an eye, or that invitation you were supposed to get never showed up in the mail. When this happens, it might be worth taking a step back to ask why certain plans are not panning out the way you expected; there may be hidden dynamics and undertones that suggest the need to identify your personal agenda.

Aquarius: I told you last week that while career negotiations are on track, you are going to experience a few disruptions. This does not mean that all is lost, Aquarius. It just means that you may have to go back to re-negotiate. This may not be such a bad thing, as it will force you to re-read the fine print, which may reveal something that was missed. As a result, you may decide to change your bottom line, further firming your investment. I’d call this week a blessing in disguise. Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong! Visit www.randomenssofrudy.com for more details!

Pisces: Your truth is yours and nobody else! Although you may find this week that your truth isn’t as firm as you thought. Someone is going to question your personal beliefs and philosophies, and while the experience may feel unsettling; the exercise will insist that you not only come to a full understanding of that which is your truth, but that you commit to its application in your everyday life as well. You’ll see just how far off the mark you really were, secretly appreciating the intrusion. Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong!
