Stress. Pressure. Demands. Money. Home. Family. Everything. That’s what stress can feel like on a day when you have too much to do and too many places to be with too many people to see. How can you keep it all organized without letting the weight of the world fall on your shoulders? You can use astrology. It can help put things into perspective. We all have demands in our lives, from social obligations to familial and monetary pursuits. The best way to alleviate stress is to balance the demands of everything like a carefully placed top spinning in perfect harmony. To enjoy the stress is to learn from it and to be better because of it. Enjoy stress? Sure, why not? Can you think of anything better to do with it? I can’t. In any case, I hope to minimize your stress by letting you know how, where and when it is most likely to appear in your life.
So, for all of you Fire, Air, Earth and Water folk, here’s a look at how stressors over the next month from October 15th to November 15th may affect you and, here’s how best to take care of things and stay chill.
Fire Signs: That’s Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. In general, you put your emotional energy out there more forcefully than others. Be careful now, as your intuition may be playing tricks on you. Pay special attention to your vibes when it comes to any dealings with other people’s money. Don’t plan on making any big moves with your own finances until several weeks from now. For now, creditors might be calling so pay them off and settle your debts. It’s a karmic law of the universe that money makes money. Make sure your financial picture is in the clear by November 15th. November 16th and beyond is when the changes you’ve implemented with your investments will begin to start working for you and the rest of the country. Until then, I advise you to hunker down and make no sudden moves. Remember, to act fiercely, ferociously or in a fiery fashion is your nature. It’s probably also what is making you feel stressed out. The good news is you don’t have to be as obviously aggressive right now. Working behind the scenes is your best bet. That’ll calm you down. Worst days for business: October 29th and November 8th
Air Signs: Calling all Librans, Aquarians and Geminis. As everything goes in cycles, so too will your stress levels be building towards a climax several months from now. In the past few months, you have been the most hurt by miscommunications on the financial level. Contracts, salary negotiations and attending to your social calendar were the three things that would have been most frustrating for you in the prior month. All of that will begin to change from October 15th on into the months ahead. Rather than miscommunicating, you’ll be more likely to get your point across without any guesswork. After October 20th, you’ll begin to see gains in your career and wallet. Worst days for business: October 24th, November 3rd and November 12th
Earth Signs: Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo, this means you. You’re coming through a storm of difficulty relating to the push-and-pull of finances. It’s something that’s likely to continue for you until the later days of November at which point the tide will turn. No need to worry about it now, right Virgos? The rest of the world needs to wait for y’all to get your finances in order before the rest of the zodiac will have things figured out. Take it one day at a time and before you know it, commercial real estate will begin to grow and be favored for all Earth signs by early next year. The next couple of months are for regrouping. Worst days for business: October 22nd, October 1st and November 10th.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The smartest move this month would be for every other member of the zodiac to seek counsel from you fine watery souls. You’re made the most energized and dynamic by Mars’ passage through Scorpio, the deepest of psychic energy channels. What you feel will become real for now through the 15th of November, so be aware of your energy and how you channel it in relating and creating for your self, home and life. And remember, before you can rise up, there must always be a “down” time. Or must there? How about living in a perpetual state of bliss? I think you know the answer to that. That goes for feeling, finances and everything. No need to stress about that. Worst days for business: October 17th, October 26th and November 5th.
Remember, astrology doesn't dictate free will, so, the choice is yours. You can either glide with the tide or push against it and create waves. Waves sound pretty stressful to me. Avoid ‘em if you can is my Aquarius-Pisces advice.
