SkyCode Horoscopes for October 10-October 16, 2016

The commanding Sun faces off against off-the-wall Uranus on Saturday morning before a full moon that night. We’ll feel the build of this zany, fidgety energy during the week though. Some might embrace these feelings with open rebellion by quitting a job. Others might manage it by doing something different. Perhaps they’ll take a trip alone to an unfamiliar, distant place. Or own more of their originality with a new hairstyle or discreetly placed tattoo. We’re all bound to crack ourselves open a little.

It’s all a question of how we do it. Astute Mercury provides some useful examples by his aspects this week. He knots up with ill-mannered Mars by square on Thursday. That’s good for putting passion into our writing or communication. But there’s always the danger of adding too much, like cayenne in a delicate dish. There’s making a point. Then there’s cutting to the bone. Keep it real, not personal.

Mercury’s tangle by square with profound Pluto is subtler. Pluto signifies how we explore what’s beneath the surface. We can get more “medieval” with the pressure we put on others or ourselves. We’re also bound to be more psychological. We want to think through the nooks and crannies of what others might feel. Or we get obsessive in wanting to get at the bottom of something. A full moon with an aspect like this isn’t the best time to keep too much a secret.

That leaves only one option: let more of the chips fall where they need to go. This doesn’t mean we get to hurl them like daggers. We also don’t have to let them scatter carelessly either. Apply the right pressure when needed and don’t be squeamish about the yolk of truth. Whatever way you want to describe that truth. As the saying goes, “you gotta break some eggs to (insert what needs to happen this week).”

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

You’re going to have the set the record straight with somebody. You’re entitled to your own righteous indignation when boundaries are crossed. Yes, it’s good to mind your manners. It’s great to keep your cool. But you might have the wrong idea about your sign if you think you always have to be “balanced.” Your real task is to keep mixing the right ratio of heart, mind, and soul to become the best possible person you can be. That’s how we share our best with others. And that might not always be what others want. But it might be what they need.

Affirmation:
I always strive to be the best possible “me” I can be to share with others.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Resist the impulse to deliver a joke at someone else’s expense. It’s not the nicest thing to do. But it will eventually prove more hurtful to you. Perhaps you want to avoid looking at how you gave up your own authority or self-control. Instead, you take it out on another person. It’s a way to make yourself feel better. Work instead on feeling better on your own terms. Make peace with what or who has made you feel helpless or weaker recently. Then you’ll be able to do the serious work to sort out bigger problems.

Affirmation:
I learn from my mistakes without scapegoating others.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

It’s frustrating when others reject your attempts to uplift and teach. Why would anyone choose ignorance over true knowledge? Can’t they see you want to help? Unfortunately, many people are prideful because they fear they have little else. That’s why your generosity of spirit and grace are vital. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Perhaps that’s true. But be kind as you share what you know. It’s as important as imagination. Be like trickling water around someone’s pride. Seep, not crash in like a wave.

Affirmation:
I share the truth I know with kindness and sensitivity.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

The fine art of diplomacy is more about tone than tallying up pluses and minuses between people. You want to feel good. Someone else wants to feel good. That’s true even for someone who doesn’t seem to care what you want. It might not seem fair that you have to carry the load when another doesn’t. But that’s part of being one of the “grown ass” signs of the Zodiac. You have to negotiate when someone has what you want. That’s why you can play the long game so well. That’s why you’ve had recent bouts of self-care. And some people don’t know how to care for themselves. They only know how to fend for themselves. You have the wisdom now to teach the difference.

Affirmation:
I have enough self-care wisdom to share with others who want to help themselves and me.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Leave doubt behind. Embrace that there are other ways of knowing something before you have the evidence. Perhaps an authority figure grills you on the spot. You feel defensive and want to shut down. You don’t have to let that happen. Be proactive. Follow your hunches. This might lead to more information than you know how to organize. Digging may also lead to some late nights and scores of open browser tabs. Sate your need to know. But don’t forget to get some sleep. You’ll need it to organize some of your thoughts to quiet those who’ll want to silence you.

Affirmation:
I trust my gut to lead me to knowledge and resources I will soon hold in my hand.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

A mistake doesn’t have to become a stake in the heart. You can choose to embrace it as feedback. A pointer from a friend or colleague can only undo all the work you’re doing if you’re more committed to a product than a process. Defensiveness won’t help. Stay dedicated to a process of learning to create some of your greatest work. Don’t settle for glossy visions of perfection. They probably have a thin patina of sheen to cover the shit you don’t want anyone to see. Instead, be grateful life is greeting you with honesty through others. You’ll rise to the challenge.

Affirmation:
I am a work in process and expect no less from what I do. It is an extension of who I am.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

In an age when everybody wants to be heard, we often feel the pressure to engage. Our egos clamor to roar. But that’s not your sole option. You can just walk away. Let a deal break. Or a relationship. Search your heart. Only there can you see whether you’ve given your all, negotiated for what would make everyone happy. But you really can’t make someone’s happiness. You only can bring the ingredients that another stews in his or her heart. Your job is to bring your fire. Fretting for more will leave you drained and sad.

Affirmation:
I can find my way to happiness without pressure on others to make it with me.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Perhaps you’ve gotten so good at keeping yourself together that you find it hard to fall apart—even a little. Maybe you fear that if there’s a chink in your fortified life, you’ll be defenseless. But truthfully you need to let go a tiny bit if only to move freer, breathe easier and be more comfortable. You’re so committed to being on point that you might not even recognize how much pressure you’re putting on your body. Treat yourself to a “sick hour,” if you feel you can’t claim a whole day.

Affirmation:
I take frequent breaks to better withstand pressure.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

There’s feeling yourself. Then there’s feeling in touch with yourself. You’ll feel a little of both. But it’ll suck to connect the two. It’s best to feel in touch with yourself when you’re alone. A gut check keeps you grounded. You can appraise your goals and how you’re meeting them or not. Feeling yourself is letting your confidence shine brighter than your fears. If you’ve done the gut check, then you don’t have to overcompensate for your fears. You can just shine! Do both at the same time and your insecurity will piss people off, especially people for whom you want to be shiny.

Affirmation:
I balance my external confidence with quiet time to listen to my own fears.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

You’ve probably been wrestling with a tension that’s had you on edge. As things come to a head, you might not know whether to collapse into a puddle or bop around like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. Yes, be relieved. But you’d do better to sit down and reflect on how things got so tense in the first place. Retrace your steps as best you can. Then think out what you would do differently. You can even do this a few times so it sets in. Don’t do this with regret, though. You can view this all as an opportunity to learn. And you will.

Affirmation:
I rise into greater growth and understanding when a tense situation eases.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Reach for the stars. But that’s not encouragement for your ambitions or even to study more astrology. Tune more into the bigger cosmic questions. Poet Ranier Maria Rilke said, “Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now.” Perhaps you’ve been plodding too much with tasks and efficiencies. You should instead float along with your questions. Write, cry, laugh, or read ‘em out. They will certainly give you perspective.

Affirmation:
I allow my questions to swirl without pressure to have the answers.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

A Virgo influenced person recently showed me a very meticulous way to crack a hardboiled egg. It was a way to peel the shell easily. It involved precisely cutting the egg with a knife at just the right angle. Then you peel. Admittedly, there were fewer shell pieces on the egg than my way. But I would have to commit to a perfect cut with that knife. Each time. It was a little extra for just two eggs for breakfast. Before coffee. Maybe you even got tired from reading all of that. So, remember that when you put more focus on the precision of a process when the product is, say, an egg. Or something as simple and similar.

Affirmation:
I support a process that best matches the value of the product.
