Into the Stars — Your Weekly Horoscope (October 24–30, 2016)

How can it be the last week of October?? This year has been full and frenzied at times astrologically, and this week we can look back and begin to see the full extent of what was uncovered, initiated, dissolved and renewed.

As we move deeper into the dark half of the year we move deeper into our most authentic selves, steeping in reflection, processing and relinquishing all of the wounding we encountered this year. This time of year is made for cultivating quietude, gratitude and fortitude. On Monday of this week Mercury, the mental planet, moves into the sign of Scorpio, changing the tone of our communications and quality of our thoughts will shift some. And on Sunday morning we have a new moon also in Scorpio. For Scorpio sun signs this is the restart new moon of the year, a new beginning. The intentions that we set at this new moon will grow over the next six months, until the full moon in Scorpio.
