Your Astrology GIFs for the Week of October 7, 2013

On Thursday the 10th, Venus will aspect Neptune, and now you are likely to daydream and perhaps to fantasize about romantic reveries and soft lighting. This is fine, as long as you do not have false expectations about a romantic ideal you may expect your loved one to live up to. Reality takes a backseat to the imagination when Neptune is involved, so be careful not to lose touch by daydreaming about how you wish things were.

On Saturday the 12th, the Sun will form a hard angle to Jupiter, and you may act generously or extravagantly with money.  Be mindful of wasteful splurges and shopping sprees, as you will be prone to spend more than you may actually have.

Mars moves into Virgo on Tuesday the 15th and here he makes us work well in a subordinate capacity. Take advantage of this influence over the next two months and complete those small but important tasks for which you usually have no patience.

Libra (September 23–October 22) 
Now is not the time to confront others. Instead, confront yourself. Work alone as much as possible.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21) 
Formulate your goals and actively pursue them. Work today for the sake of what you can bring about tomorrow. 

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21) 
More than any other, this transit arouses your ambition. Your energy will make an impression on people who are in a position to help you, as long as they do not feel challenged. If you align your interest with theirs, these people can help you.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19) 
This transit can be a time when you do more creative intellectual work than usual and attempt to convey your experience and view of the world to others. But try not to beat people over the head with your ideas.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18) 
You’ll be looking for sex to transform you this week; just keep in mind that this is a rather large demand to place upon a frail human relationship.

Pisces (February 19–March 20) 
Sometimes this transit can signify legal conflicts and lawsuits. If you’re going to fight, pick your battles well. Try to compromise if you can in order to avoid needless hullabaloo.

Aries (March 21–April 9) 
You are likely to take considerable pride in how much work you can do during this transit. So the best way to handle this energy is to find plenty of work and do it.

Taurus (April 20–May 20) 
If you don’t feel like doing something this week, you’re not going to be able to make yourself do it. Sex is a way of channeling this energy if you become frustrated.

Gemini (May 21–June 20) 
Be quite conscious of your actions, otherwise you will behave in petty and irritable ways that no one around you will be able to understand or deal with.

Cancer (June 21–July 22) 
If you have to “sell” an idea of yours to someone in your job or anywhere else, this is a good time to do it. You will impress them by the power with which you state your ideas.

Leo (July 23–August 22) 
Your desire to have possessions may lead you to make unwise and impulsive purchases because you feel you must have something. Be careful of careless spending.

Virgo (August 23–September 22) 
Your personality is much more influential than usual, and at this time you will not let anyone take anything away from you. You will fight if someone attacks you first.
