Love Lanyadoo Astrology 10.09-15.2019
🌝This week’s big news is a Full Moon in Aries at 2.08pm PT on the 13th.
It’s likely to help unearth what is toxic, broken, or just plain ready to go.
Look at your attachments, and be honest with yourself about whether they're serving you or holding you back. With Venus opposing Uranus, things are unlikely to be as they seem — no matter how much you think you know. It’s wise to hold tight and let things unfold for at least 72hrs after the 13th.
During the Full Moon, Pluto will form a really tight square to both the Sun and Moon, creating a compulsive and driving feeling. This can be the push you need for creatively transforming your approach to things, or it can find you in the throws of a major destructive meltdown. There may be tension between your individual needs and the needs of your relationships, or you may find that you aren’t sure what to compromise, or how much. Remember what your values are. Give yourself (and others) grace to be wherever they’re at in their learning curve. Strive to identify and maintain healthy boundaries. “No” is a complete sentence, my loves.

March 21-April 19
The 13th is the one time a year that the Moon is Full in your sign, Aries. It’s a time for transformation, but it’s also a time for letting go. You can act in ways that are powerful and impressive, but if they aren’t also authentic and sustainable, it won’t make you happy in the end. Consider the needs of your heart and the impact that you’re having on others this week. The last thing you need is more on your plate that makes you feel burdened rather than inspired.
April 20-May 20
Don’t allow your pride to back you into a corner, Taurus. Deciding that your challenges are your enemies is a good way to feel bad. If you’re feeling stuck, this is a powerful time for looking at how your attitudes towards others are keeping you there. You don’t need to be in a competition with anyone, you don’t need to prove yourself, and you really don’t need to go it alone. Collaboration won’t minimize you or your potential — lean on others this week, my love.
May 21-June 21
This week marks an excellent time for moving forward with the changes you’ve been working hard to integrate. You're transforming in deep ways, Twin Star, and the impact of it likely has many layers to consider. The more intentional you are about how you want to move through your thoughts and actions, the easier it will be to stay aligned with your intentions. This isn’t the time to fall back on habits or to go on autopilot. Be the change you want to see in your life.
June 22-July 22
This week your ruling planet is going to do more than kick up a little dust, Moonchild. If you find yourself caught up in fear-based thinking or reacting to others in paranoid ways, this is a call for you to slow down and get present. How you feel is just as much a reflection on you and your state of mind as it is on your situation and the people in it. Take responsibility for how you respond, even when you feel like things are out of control, my love.
July 23-Aug. 22
It’s time to prioritize what you believe in, Leo. There is no amount of pressure you can place on yourself that will truly help you. Seek positive motivation instead of falling back on old habits. Instead of creating competitions in your head and feeling awful about how you're not winning, find a different way of keeping your focus and your energy engaged. If you’re going to fight, fight for what you love — and not out of pettiness or fear.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
While you may be struggling with a limitation or problem this week, you also have the tools you need to cope with it. Believe it or not, this is an opportunity to make your life more authentic, true, and free — you simply have to take it. While it’s important to collaborate with others, at the end of the day, it’s your life, and you have to make choices that are right for you. If you’re going to gamble, bet on yourself, Virgo. You’ve got this, my love.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Trust your body, Libra. This week you’re likely to feel overwhelmed by the consequences of your choices, and it may start with how you feel in your skin. While you can’t control those feelings, you can be intentional about how you choose to respond to them. The Moon is full in your relationship house on the 13th, and it’s going to kick up major feelings within you and the people you’re close to. Find your agency, and act in ways that reflect your intentions, not your fears, this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
When you have a tendency towards wild hope, followed by crushing fear, what you need is a better middle ground to anchor you. Consider sustainable, realistic, and even small ways that you can create stability within yourself, Scorpio. Life can’t always offer you assurances, but you can be your own reliable resource. Prioritize the kind of self-care that you can lean into when uncertainty grips you, my love.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
As delightful as it would be to skip over steps between drab and fab, the stages of development for any project or personal achievement are totally necessary. Regardless of where you are today, find ways of being present for it. If you’re exhausted, tend to it. If you’re behind, organize your time to catch up. Accept where you’re starting from so that you can take the steps necessary to get to where you want to be, Sagittarius.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
There is no greater success that you can accomplish than self-mastery, my ever-practical friend. The ability to tolerate your emotions without shutting down, popping off, or projecting out is not completely organic for Capricorns, but with effort and intention, it can totally be achieved. This week’s Full Moon on the 13th is an opportunity for you to act in ways that reflect the complexities of your heart. It’s your time to bloom, my love.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
In the wise words of Maya Angelou, “At the end of the day people won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.” You have the potential to be right or wrong about any number of things, but is proving yourself the most important thing to you? Remember that no Aquarius is an island; you need others and they need you. Act in ways that reflect the kindness and patience that we all deserve this week.
Feb. 19-March 20
You don’t need to defend your boundaries, Pisces, but you do need to enforce them. If you maintain your needs at noon but back down on them at 6pm, why would anyone else respect them? It’s hard to be consistent when you’re used to second-guessing yourself, or worse, seeking validation for whether you’re doing things the right way. Take your time, and take loving and consistent care of yourself this week. You deserve it in the same way that everyone else does, sweet one.
