How can you move beyond past mistakes when you won't let yourself forget them? The only person who is still beating you up over what you did is you—so stop it! You are a wonderful person who isn't perfect, but then again, no one is. Holding yourself to a higher standard is not going to force you to rise to your expectations. It's only going to make you feel like you're not doing your best—and you know that you are. So give yourself an emotional hug today.
AquariusJan 20 – Feb 18
Don’t hesitate to bring your wildest ideas to the table on October 15 when communicator Mercury in your tenth house of career forms a harmonizing angle to mystical Neptune in your second house of income. You’ll be on a roll dreaming up quirky, out-there proposals, and there’s no reason to hold back from sharing them with higher-ups and colleagues. While some might suggest you need to dig up facts and figures to back up your proposals, your enthusiasm and ingenuity is a wonderful starting point!
Then, on October 17, the emotional moon in your fifth house of romance forms a positive trine to go-getter Mars in your ninth house of adventure, shoring up your confidence and most heartfelt desires. You’ll want to take bold, concrete action, like booking the vacation of your dreams.
When introspective Pluto goes direct in driven Capricorn on October 3, you’re starting to think about getting your way again. Unlike your passive mood during the more contemplative retrograde period, you’re anxious to get back into a position of power and influence.
A Mercury-Uranus opposition on the seventh increases the pace, and you might feel scattered and torn between the many things on your to-do list. Your nervousness can show itself in any number of odd ways, so try to be aware of the impression you’re making on the people you interact with.
A similarly stressful opposition between Venus and Uranus on October 12 can cause increased tension in a romantic setting, especially when there are surprise announcements and unwelcome news. Being the recipient of a message you weren’t expecting could throw you off guard in a way that won’t be easy to recover from quickly. Hang in there, Aquarius.
More frustration accompanies the Mars-Saturn square on the twenty-seventh, as you feel caught between what you want and what is keeping you from getting it. Limitations, rules, and obstacles all seem as though they’re working against you, but where there’s a will there’s a way. Find a way around those blockages instead of trying to go through them.
