Daily General Horoscopes - Friday 18 October
Before the Sun returns to your financial sector next week in order to throw the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters, Venus and Mercury are here, testing the waters. Where Mercury is giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, Venus is focused more on your financial wish list. Before the Sun gets here and there will be a need to keep it real, this gives you time to simply explore your options and test the waters.
Just days after a Full Moon saw the Sun and Moon clash as a Full Moon, one that may have created some work tension or job pressure, things have completely turned around. The Moon is now not only in your income sector but at a friendly aspect to the Sun, now in his final days in your work sector. Two weeks after Mars returned to fire things up on the job front or with whatever it is the keeps you busy, the roadblocks are behind you. However, the Full Moon has left you with a reminder to pace yourself.
While any work tension or job pressure over recent days has dropped back, all of a sudden the Moon's call to pace yourself is starting to make sense. The Moon had put pressure on both Venus and Mercury in your busy work sector, as it made its monthly visit to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. This was a reminder when it comes to knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. With those reminders delivered, at a time when there is growing energy across the income, work and career fronts you are better able to work smarter.
There is a pattern emerging this week, with the same themes being repeated. That theme is a surge in professional momentum, followed by work/life balance reminders and then followed by playful forces that show you how to find the right balance between work and play. As that same cycle repeats for the second time in just four days it is Venus who has the final word today. From her position in a playful part of your chart, Venus brings a reminder that life can't be all work and no play and just how important it is to follow your own heart.
An alignment between the North Node and Venus is keeping things simple and grounded today, making it easier to stay in the moment, with a sense that all your needs are being met. This is something you could easily talk yourself out of, especially if you choose to focus on what you don't have or what is still missing. This alignment is drawing your focus towards the things you do have and towards your more basic or even humble needs and priorities. This is when you will naturally start to feel more gratitude and, in the process, more content.
As the Moon makes its monthly visit to your career sector, a friendly aspect to the Sun couldn't come with better timing. As well as injecting confidence into your professional instincts and imagination, this comes just as the Sun is not only moving into his final days in your income sector but is shaking off the financial tension from recent days. This is the boost in financial and professional confidence needed to use any financial tension as motivation, while keeping in mind a need to maintain a balance between money coming in and money going out.
Today's adventurous lunar vibes might seem out of step with some of the heavy themes that this week has produced, it couldn't come with better timing. Just four days ago the Sun and Moon clashed to create a Full Moon that is often one of the most challenging points in your birthday month, designed to ensure you are not asleep at the wheel. Yet just days later, the Moon's friendly aspect to the Sun just six days before leaving Libra, brings a boost in confidence and support for the journey ahead.
Venus might return to Scorpio once a year and six days before your birthday month and new solar year is due to begin is already giving your heart a voice, today's friendly aspect to the North Node is rare. It has been 17 years since Venus returned to Scorpio to find the North Node in an adventurous part of your chart, with their alignment today bringing a boost in confidence and enthusiasm when it comes to the journey ahead. This is the inspiration to begin working on your bucket list for the coming year.
A week after Mercury, moving through an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart moved into a friendly aspect to the North Node in your financial sector, Venus is doing the same today. A week after Mercury brought a mix of intuition and logic, imagination and intelligence together, Venus is able to fuel your financial confidence, instincts and imagination in a way that is more to do with wishful thinking. Between them, Venus allows you to focus on the 'what' and Mercury on the 'when, where and how'.
This is a day where the stars have not only aligned but twice in the same day. An alignment between the Sun and Moon is a turnaround from the tension created during a Full Moon four days ago, coming together today to create friendly conditions on the job and career fronts. At the same time, the North Node and Venus have aligned to create an auspicious day for friendship and relationship building, with the element of fate and the laws of attraction and synchronicity in effect.
A week that began with multiple oppositions that required some carefully juggling now brings multiple opportunities, this time requiring the kind of juggling you are unlikely to complain about. A friendly aspect between the North Node and Venus is creating some auspicious conditions on the job and career fronts, along with a boost in confidence and a clearer sense of direction. While this might seem at odds with another alliance of playful and adventurous forces, this is where recent work/life balance reminders can be used to your advantage.
Knowing that she is just 15 days away from joining Jupiter in your career sector and the push to bring this professional year home, Venus was always going to make her final weeks in an adventurous part of your chart count. That job becomes a lot easier as Venus moves into a friendly aspect to the North Node in a playful part of your chart, bringing playful and adventurous forces together. This is something that has been building ever since Venus returned last week.
