Are you ready to clear the path toward new beginnings and embrace mysterious, intuitive, and transformational energy? Then the stars are bringing you quite a few cosmic treats this week! 

On October 17th, the Last Quarter Moon in Cancer helps clear the way for the upcoming Moon cycle, encouraging you to tie up any loose ends before this clean slate. Cancer shines a spotlight on self-care, making this the time to let go of any habits or behaviors that may be holding you back.

Cancer is also tied to domestic energy – cleanse your sacred space and spend plenty of time with loved ones.

Bringing transformative, spiritual, and intuitive vibrations are the Sun and Venus – both moving into mysterious Scorpio on October 23rd. This means that we’ll be influenced by the energy of Scorpio season while Venus – the planet of beauty, love, and relationships – also cruises through this intense Water sign

Scorpio season brings the depth of life to the forefront of your mind, asking you to look inward and explore your innermost thoughts and feelings. Venus in Scorpio heightens sensuality and the desire for intimacy, but that passion can also lead to jealousy in relationships. 

If you approach this Scorpio energy with an open heart, an open mind, and a desire for the truth, you can learn more about yourself than ever before.

October 17 – October 23 Is A Week to Embrace Intuitive, Spiritual Energy

As both Cancer and Scorpio are Water signs, your intuition is even more amplified now – listen to that intuitive voice when it comes to approaching this week’s astrological transits. Your inner voice will guide you toward the activities, practices, and self-care routines you need now.

Do you feel connected to your spirit and your center of truth now? Tarot readings, astrology, journaling, and crystal healing are excellent ways to get in touch with your intuition and spiritual center.
