ASTROLOGY FOR WEEK BEGINNING OCTOBER 30, 2003

By Dee Price Miller

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) There can be, or have already been, complete changes in the kind or amount of your valuable possessions, including money. You may have had to get along a limited budget and have trouble borrowing money. You are not doomed to poverty as this is just a temporary phase. If you try to hold on to possessions or the sources of income you are used to, you will only delay the beginning of new phases of prosperity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) You are gradually reshaping your personality, gaining greater control over the ways you project yourself toward others. This makes your relationships more rewarding. Do not to try to control everyone and everything around you because no one wants to be controlled and you project a bad image of yourself. Use this time to understand yourself well and you can then understand others and how to get along with them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) This is a time when you must face up to what has gone on before in your life as a result of bad decisions you have made. The consequences of these decisions come back to haunt you now. You have to make apologies and restitution and bring your mistakes out into the open where they cannot work against you. If you are completely honest with others they may have a change of heart about you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) There have been and will be many changes in your goals and in the kinds of people you have as friends. You meet an influential person or achieve an important goal and the result changes your life and it is all to the good. Avoid associating with people just because they are powerful. Doing this could lead you to accept their pushing you in a direction that you do not want to go or that is not good for you.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20) With the long stay of Pluto in your 10th house you are trying to achieve more than you ever have before. You now have the power to accomplish your goals or the insight to know what they are. Either way, you have the opportunity for great success. Don’t be alarmed if you change your job often. Do not let change discourage you. Also, do not take shortcuts. Be fair and play according to the rules, take your time, and you will be a winner.

ARIES (March 21 to April 20) Are you ready for a long time friend to be more than just a friend? All the signs are there. Decide now what you will do about it if it happens. Avoid impulsive reactions to others’ announcements. Also avoid arguments over money. If you ‘just want to be happy’ avoid all emotional reactions as they can get you into real trouble now. Any excess or overindulgence will be regretted this week.

TAURUS (Apr. 21 to May 21) Pluto continues in your eighth house of transformation and when its long passage is over, something important in your life will be changed—your personality, reactions, location, looks, it could be anything. Your part is to be flexible and willing to adapt to change. You are being made into a new person whether you are aware of it or not. It is not a good time to go into debt as it would be very difficult for you to repay it.

GEMINI (May 22 to June 21) Pluto is now in your seventh house of partnerships both business and marital. It will be there for another six years. It is the slowest planet and that is why its effect in your life is always drastic whether for good or bad. At some time during the years it stays in the in the seventh house your relationships go through profound and significant changes. It is not a good time to start any partnership. Encounters with others bring changes into your life.

CANCER (June 22 to July 22) During the long stay of Pluto in the sixth house of work and health you should give particular attention to your health. Physical conditions that you have been ignoring now need lots of attention. If you will adopt a complete physical regimen and follow it faithfully, you can rebuild your health. Some of you will have to change your diet drastically as a poor diet will lead to a physical breakdown at any time during these critical years.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Children can be a problem for the next five or six years. Everything you do with them will have a powerful effect with them. You will have disturbing romantic encounters as they will be volatile in an on again, off again way. Don’t try to pressure anyone as it would only cause a power struggle and a break-up. You can be emotionally fascinated by someone who is not good for you. Any intense relationship will go through a complete change.

VIRGO ( Aug. 23 to Sept. 23) Your home and family relationships will be affected by the long transit of Pluto. Many of the situations you faced in childhood begin to re-emerge and you will no longer be satisfied to live with them. You want change and your home life will change drastically. There can be a serious power struggle between family members or you or another may leave home and live elsewhere. The changes may not be unhappy, but they will be significant.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Conversations and contacts have great importance in the next few years as Pluto remains in your third house. Great changes are taking place triggered by conditions over which you have no control. You are forced to do something about them now. Do not take anything for granted. Changes of scene and traveling over short distances will have far-reaching effects. You want new experiences that will broaden your view of the world.
