YOUR HOROSCOPE BY BLES CARMONA
For the week of October 24-30, 2016
For all signs: The biggie this week comes on Sunday, Oct. 30, which happens to be the New Moon in Scorpio. According to East/West astrologer Cathy Coleman, PhD: “Set intentions around shared finances, and strong emotional issues,” since those are a big part of Scorpio’s province. Scorpio is also about intensity and passion, and not just about sex and love. That’s too obvious for subtle Scorpio. So what is your passion in life? What deep subjects, mundane issues, and cherished interests make your body tingle to the very end of your nerve roots? The Scorpio New Moon is your opportunity to pursue your passion relentlessly. Scorpio, ruled by mysterious Pluto (and fiery Mars, depending on the astrological tradition you subscribe to) is not interested in superficiality, rather, it prefers to investigate and dig deeply. So dig!
At this point, a little segue to promote your self-knowledge: Remember the Chiron-Lilith-Selena report I wrote about last week? Well, there’s no better way to test the merchandise than to do a road test, so to speak. I of course ordered my report – and boom! I was blown away by what I rediscovered to be true about myself, especially about my soul’s purpose, the angel and shadow self within me. I will review my report in a separate blog post (please give me time as I am a busy para-educator in a middle school), but I urge you to please order yours as well. With Ms. Benebell Wen’s incisive yet easy-to-grasp interpretation of the sign and house placements of Chiron, Black Moon Lilith, and White Moon Selena in your chart, $15 (the cost of the reading) is a steal! Just send your name, date of birth, time of birth, and city/country of birth to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out her website, which is http://www.benebellwen.com – always a fount of brilliant writing on tarot card deck reviews, metaphysical musings, and other intriguing stuff you’d want to research more on your own, should you be so inclined. So be inclined (says your soul)!
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) Beware of betrayal from one you thought of as a friend or close ally. It’s painful to realize that this person just broke your trust, especially with what you’ve shared in confidence. From now on, wide-open Aries, you’d better keep at least some cards closer to your chest. Weekly mantra: I hold space for sincere friendships.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Remember the Riddle of the Sphinx about which animal has four legs in the morning, two during midday, and three at night? Well, you will face a similar challenge to your intellect and fortitude this week. Do not be daunted. Just come prepared and you’ll ace it. Weekly mantra: There is no fear in love.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) This week is about surrender – whether to your basic senses or to that so-called “higher power,” only you can determine. One thing is for sure, though: the time is ripe for you to stop resisting and give in to that powerful force – but only if you determine that it’s for your own good. Weekly mantra: I release myself from puny restrictions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Oh Cancerian, have you been feeling victimized by someone in particular or by fate in general? It’s natural to feel self-pity and hurt at this time, but you know that you are stronger than this. Renew the family ties that you value so highly, because this is the source of your strength. Weekly mantra: My will and tenacity will see me through.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) Much like the Moon going through its monthly phases, so you would go through a symbolic death and rebirth, over and over. What was true for you before is gradually changing, making you a better version of yourself as you travel the path of an inquiring soul. Persevere in your quest and you will arise victorious. Weekly mantra: I honor the Light in my heart.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22) Virgos have an affinity to the healing arts in one way or another. However, physician, heal thyself first. You may toggle between illness and wellness this week, so watch your spiritual and physical vulnerable spots. Mind over matter comes easily to you, so double up on your efforts in this regard to maintain your own health. Weekly mantra: My body knows how to heal itself.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) This week, focus your meditation on your third eye chakra, that space in the middle of your forehead, which enhances your ability to “see.” Why? You especially need to perceive the real truth behind the obvious in that matter you’ve been thinking of. Use your discernment to find out if this is real or simply an illusion. Weekly mantra: I see with clarity.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) May Divine Spirit grant you the wisdom to sort through your emotions at this time. You may be feeling a bit confused because you feel everything so intensely and yet expend monumental effort just so you can hide behind a stoic front. Learn to reach a happy medium between your head and heart. Weekly mantra: I moderate my thoughts and emotions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) The thing with you, dear Sadge, is that just because you may not be traditionally handsome or beautiful, or just because you are more sports-oriented rather than more laid-back, is that you are not living up to some sort of norm. Well, in the ways that count, there is no “norm.” You are free to express your beautiful, yes beautiful, individuality. Weekly mantra: I am unique and wonderfully made.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) Your tender heart is simply open to the call of love at this time, and this speaks to self-love as well as your emotional involvement with someone special. If, however, your partner is yet to materialize, then help the Universe along by developing your own best qualities, so that when that special person does arrive, you could recognize yourself in them right away and claim them as your own. Weekly mantra: My horizons expand with love.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) “Creativity” is the keyword for you this week, regardless of whether you’re an artist or a computer programmer, or even if you’re stuck in a “boring” desk job. First of all, don’t describe your career in such negative terms. Find the inspiration and motivation to be creative in any positive way. Challenge yourself thus and you’ll never look down upon your job or side interests again. Weekly mantra: I am original and inventive.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) What is true abundance? Surely you, Pisces, with your sights set on a higher plane of understanding, know that abundance goes beyond mere economics. Realize that your true riches lie in your compassionate heart full of love, inquiring intellect, and the way you reach out to others to ease their burdens. Build relationships, not more business strategies. Weekly mantra: My heart is open to Universal love.
Maraming salamat, mabuhay, namaste, and blessed be!
