Activate your inner pioneer and blaze with full moonbeams through the weekend. Use last week’s tension to propel you through a challenge that you wouldn’t normally accomplish. Make the most of this week’s lack of obstacles to dissolve barriers, real or imagined, no excuses. Read on to discover what’s in store for your rising sign during the week of October 14 through to October 20, 2019, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.
Aries | Aries rising
Intense is an understatement for the recent full moon in your sign. Last week was a call to push through something that’s had you in its grip on a deep level. You tend to challenge anything, or anyone, that tries to block, dominate, or control you. This week starts by plunging an ongoing difference between your partnerships and career. The trick is to clear old fears and get the balance right. Find that sweet spot between overdoing and underdoing it. Allowing transformation and deep impact on the career front while continuing to shine and have your personal needs met in a relationship is your cosmic mission. All sorts of intel is yours this week if you stay open to non-ordinary ways of tuning in. Note your dreams by keeping a dream journal or voice-record them on rising before they evaporate. What signs, symbols, and synchronicities resonate?
Taurus | Taurus rising
The effects of the full moon in your zen zone signals something you have needed to put to rest. This is the end of a cycle emotionally, so you are clear for new growth and a new emotional cycle, if not a new boo. Additionally, allow the extra emotional and psychic energy to power your important projects. Your work and your daily routine are the containers that keep your show on the road. You have an important contribution to make, and you need to push through your beliefs about what you’re capable of. Transform black-and-white thinking to discover the gray wiggle room supporting new choices. By now you’ll be aware of what that external situation is. Don’t let a great opportunity pass you by because you haven’t installed the latest cosmic update into your internal hard drive.
Gemini | Gemini rising
As the social butterfly of the zodiac, big reveals in your social stratosphere are significant. The pressure to merge resources or foot responsibilities that aren’t yours should have clarification and so be easier to resolve this week. Deal with those ties that bind so you can enjoy your independent connections. Resolve to make the most of your friendships, as there is a new crew waiting for you to join them, ready to nurture and cheer you on with a pioneering vision. Your work and public image zones are aligned, so be open to new information coming your way as well as an opportune or magical moment of understanding or connection. Regardless of how it happens, you’ll download some helpful information or ideas, so remember to record them as they may be so ephemeral, they’ll dissipate on the wind.
Cancer | Cancer rising
This week kicks off with a career moment peak, so enjoy and leverage extra attention or praise. What has the full moon revealed in terms of your public standing or direction? Now that you have clarity on the lay of the land, it’s up to you to take an opportunity and make the next move. If you need to stand up for your area of the court, then so be it—don’t back down. Balance home and career, and push through partnership obstacles. The stars suggest you’ll need to transform outdated beliefs about how to be in a partnership while directing your life in a way that’s fulfilling. Do you need to cut deadwood, own your power, or perhaps dive deeper with a partner or significant other? By Tuesday your mind will be open to insight and solutions that are completely outside the box. Take the compassionate road while staying true to your heart’s calling.
Leo | Leo rising
Your belief system was highlighted by the new moon—perhaps you’re realizing there are opportunities in thinking bigger and extending your reach beyond your local environment. How can you break through your limiting habits, routine, or even work demands to accomplish this? It will take a big shift in mind-set, but last week’s pressure should have unblocked your thought process enough to open up to the realm of possibility. All your best ideas are bubbling up from your emotional well, so listen to your feelings and the wisdom behind them. Conversations have a tone of depth, revealing insight about others as well as reflection for you. Someone else will say the magic words to liberate your mind—this is a great manifesting week for you to use the power of intention; do some gratitude and future journaling to make the most of it.
Virgo | Virgo rising
You’ll have clarity on developments in your most private of spheres as the full moon lights up your zone of sex, other people’s resources, and money. Take a close look at what’s on the table and check in with your values before making any binding agreements. Breathe new life into an existing partnership or perhaps push through obstacles or toxic beliefs around having fun and indulging romantically. Even Virgos are allowed to stop work, have fun, and enjoy life for simple pleasures. Allowing what others think to control the way you express yourself doesn’t serve anyone, least of all you. You like to keep a respectable public image and tend to find it hard to express what you fear doesn’t meet a conservative, ‘acceptable’ line, but that line isn’t yours to toe. On Tuesday, give it all you’ve got and you’ll find the conversation will flow. Feel all the feels behind the exchange.
Libra | Libra rising
The balance in relationships is never far from your mind since yours is the sign most associated with dynamic duos. The results of the full moon opposite your sign, and therefore in your partnership zone, have exposed the deeper reality. Now more than ever it’s important you take measures and make the shifts necessary to find the pleasure point between absolute independent autonomy and bliss with your bae. The key is to work through challenges coming from a domestic situation or family. It may be time to transform old family beliefs on who you are and your partnerships, and clear out any toxic creepy crawlies causing you to hold back on how you express yourself, who you’re into, and how that looks. Luck comes from taking the high road, communicating, and talking with others. Expand your mind and take in new possibilities.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
You’re fired up enough to push through changes at work that have been boiling up and have clarity on the shifts you need to transform your understanding of what’s possible. You’ve held yourself back for too long, and now it’s time to move forward. Get in touch with your mystic side by taking time out, and develop an active and independent routine that supports it the way a grueling physical yoga routine supports the stillness and introspection of meditation. Your ability to grow your income and manifest is hot right now, and it’s connecting with your work zone. Take the high road with an abundance mind-set, and make those changes at work and in your routine to support financial growth. Others pick up on your confidence, so don’t second-guess yourself—just stay true to how you want your days to look and feel, and work in line with what you
truly believe in.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
Your romance zone has been laid bare by the light of the full moon. In independent Aries, that means you’ll be ready to start something new, or next-level your existing relationship. But there’s been an internal battle around how to balance your friendships with how you like to spend your time with your lover or your creative outlets. The key is to take a good, hard look at your values, as there’s something you need to transform to liberate both your creative and dating pleasures. This week you’ll feel liberated from a compelling internal battle between your hopes and wishes and what you feel driven to express on a personal level. If you’re torn, the clincher may be down to the fact that money talks. However, the stars suggest you need to reprogram your money mind-set at a deep level. It comes down to what you think you’re worth.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
Your home sector has been highlighted by the full moon, so you have a clear view of what you need to support your foundations. What do you need to do for yourself here, and what new beginning do you need in order to strike out on your own in some way? From a space, office, or room of your own, to a complete move that supports your career, it’s time to move forward. You’ve been under pressure thanks to the ongoing transformation in your outlook on the world and even your projected image. It comes as a challenge to own and fit your evolving identity to both your career identity or demands and your private or home life. Live your best life by stepping past fears about how you’re “meant” to be, and bring your unique and powerful personae to represent, instead of trying to fit in or adjust to external expectations.
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
Thanks to the recent full moon, relationships in your local environment and what you need for both independence and nurturing have been highlighted. People who have been on your mind or have stood out are important to your path forward; make sure you follow up on inspiring connections. The pivot point to balance between local relationships that sustain you and those beyond borders comes from within. Your challenge is to accept your inner voice as opposed to what seems logistical while contributing to the larger conversation. Clear a space to dedicate time for solitude, stepping aside from your everyday thoughts and allowing new information to come to light. What you hide from yourself, in your unconscious, will have ultimate control over you from backstage, so fish it. Confront it and you’ll have a lot more impact on your surroundings as well as depth and power in your message.
Pisces | Pisces rising
You’ve been backward in stepping forward socially this month by holding on to squad goals, or even a squad that needs transformation. Your values were tested last week as well as your resources. Check in with your hopes and dreams to consider the contribution you want to give back to society. You’re ready to have a deep impact. There is a chance for you to shine by working with others that have the resources that will benefit you. But you’ll need to tap into your inner values as well as activate your entrepreneurial side. You’ll be giving as much as you receive, so don’t worry about asking—just make sure you’re open to a strengths swap and trust that it’s exactly what your collaborators need. Note communications on Tuesday, or any significant messages, in the meantime; schedule important conversations for then as well as for Sunday.
