YOUR HOROSCOPE BY BLESILDA (BLES) CARMONA-DELA ROSA
For the week of October 31-November 6, 2016
For all signs: The New Moon in Scorpio last Sunday was intense, and hopefully it has been intense for you in wonderful and magical ways. The energies of the New Moon encourage us to set firm intentions, and I especially call out to those of you who feel that they are wanting to explore their higher life purpose. Why are you really here on earth? What are you being called to do? How may you accomplish something spiritually significant while still very much in tune with the material world? How do you strike that perfect balance, so that you are fulfilled not just in measurable human metrics, but also in ways that nourish your soul? So I invite you to ponder and meditate upon these intense matters, since the period when the Sun is in Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) does invite the process of going deep within for answers. And finally, from a fellow Aries like me, Sir Thomas Jefferson, comes a quote that I read from Astrojojo.com, one of the websites to which I subscribe for various free daily readings: “I find the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.” Bonne chance, mes amies! (“Good luck, my friends!” in French.)
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) Your ruling planet Mars is the co-ruler of Pluto-ruled Scorpio. Mars packs a lot of punch and panache, for sure. Therefore your realization for this week is that you do have the power and may it be that you use that power for good. You have the potential to be a formidable Lightworker on the side of virtue, if only you stop hiding your light under a bushel. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to grow in benevolent power.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Your lesson for this week is that there is healing in laughter, that laughter is indeed good medicine. You have an earthier sense of humor than most (you’re an earth sign, after all), and appreciate the dramatic irony in this sumptuous sensual feast we call life. Appreciate the lighter moments, so you could better appreciate the contrast between these and the weightier matters. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to exercise my laughter muscles better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A sense of playfulness imbues your thoughts and actions this week. For the first time in years, you get a sense that you can actually be carefree and lighthearted again not just despite, but because of, all the trials you’ve gone through. Capitalize on this playful mood and get in touch with that youthful side of you again. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to be the master of play.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Be compassionate, first with yourself, in the light of the major changes you’ve just gone through. Then spread your compassion outwards to encompass everyone around you, yes, even beyond your tight circle of family and close friends. The winds of change continue to blow, but deep inside you, you know that you’re already prepared. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to face changes with self-compassion.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) OK, what do we have here? The proud Lion is shaken by doubts and fears this week. Wherefore art thou, courage and strength? Marshal the forces from deep within you and resolve to defeat these negative leanings. Sure, give yourself a time limit with which to feel them, but do not give up and do not give in. Surely you are made of sterner stuff than this. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to walk bravely in the valley of the shadow of death, for my God is with me.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22) Locate the loci within yourself which are frisky, uninhibited, and wild. Let go of your worries, you typical worrywart, and start looking within you for the out-of-the-box answers and witty replies that bring a secret smile to your face. Entertain yourself with how truly energetic, motivated, and strong you can be. Remember, people are observing your every move for you have become their role model. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to run in the literal and metaphorical fields in joy and abandon.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) Being so relationship-oriented, dear Libra, your self-definition has been inextricably connected with your various partners in life, whether in a business or romantic sense. Well, the time has come for you to claim your selfhood again. Seek within you the hunter/huntress, the adventurous seeker who is eager to explore the outdoors and other sensual delights. Change like the moon, but change for yourself. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to reclaim my authentic self.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) This is it, birthday peeps: you are like a volcano awakening in ecstasy this week. With this delightful bubbling-up of the Mars-Pluto fire within you, you are certain to “scare” certain people with your intensity. As if you care. Yes, do go on, explore your fires, your magma, your heat, and your light. Even with destruction comes the seeds of rebirth. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to erupt in brilliant flashes of heat and light.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) Sagittarians are not really known for their sense of order, but rather for their sense of optimism and heart for adventure. Nevertheless, it’s time to inject some method into the madness. Deep inside you, you know that there is an underlying order that must be followed even in what appears on the surface as your “chaotic” day-to-day operations. Sweep the dark corners, clean up, and watch the miracles happen more often. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to clean up my act with a pure heart.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) There is a Depeche Mode song that goes, “Pleasure/ little treasure…” Pleasure seems uppermost in your mind this week, so let yourself go and give yourself all the sensual pampering that you need. Maybe you want to do a nature walk to feast your senses upon, or maybe you want to bathe in milk in pure hedonistic abandon. You get the general idea. Well, why not? A hardworking Cappy like you deserves this kind of self-attention. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to indulge my senses.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) This week, you feel like meditating on the mysteries of the Universe around you. Primal questions like the existence of God, man’s extraterrestrial origins, and other metaphysical issues fascinate and excite you. You’ve always been a person attracted to abstract concepts and ideas. Guess what? Sooner or later you will have the opportunity to apply those abstractions in a concrete way. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to pierce through the mysteries that abound within and outside me.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) You are at a fork on the road right now, wondering where your place really is in the scheme of things. Good thing that this week, you are blessed with extra energy to accomplish your goals or make new ones, as needed, and the will to see these goals through. Start small, maybe one to three major goals, then break them down into smaller steps. The planning and execution should excite and empower you. Weekly mantra: By the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, I intend to go through the crossroads of my life in a decisive manner.
Maraming salamat, mabuhay, namaste, and blessed be!
