This week’s forecast is so positive that I’m really excited to give it. I’ve been doing this forecast for almost 2 years and I don’t think I’ve ever noticed a week that is filled with this much potential for good fortune. It’s the 43rd week of the year (I promise, I worked it out) and the card for this week is the 10 of Cups. The 10 of Cups appears when all is right in the world. It signals the completion of a cycle and is also a card of abundance and celebration. This is fitting considering Samhain is about a week away. This year was a 9 year and it’s shown you how prosperous your life can be. What gifts have been bestowed upon you this year. Give thanks to the love of the Universe and of those that came before you as All Hallows’ Eve approaches. The number of the week is 7, a number of self discovery.
Mantra: Everything is going my way.

Sunday 10/23/16 2 of Cups
Moon in Leo
The 2 of Cups is all about connections and partnerships. There is a romantic overtone but it doesn’t have to be. Connections associated with the 2 of Cups, from my personal experiences at least, are relationships that have been formed over many lifetimes. This card brings souls back together who are ready set karma right this time around. Moon trine Jupiter at 5:44 AM PST brings happy, optimistic energy to your early morning. Moon trine Saturn at 1:20 PM PST gives you the ability to approach even the most unpleasant tasks with a level head. The Moon is in Leo all day so pay attention to the people and things that seem to shine brightly. The number of the day is 6, reminding us that connections made today will bring victory.

If you feel up for an adventure, do something extraordinary today. Mercury enters Scorpio at 1:47 where He will stay until 11/12/16. When Mercury is in Scorpio, passion rules the head.

Moon sextile Mercury at 9:16 PM PST will open up channels of communication to flow openly. The Moon is void of course between 5:21 AM PST and 8:16 PM PST. When the Moon is void of course, it’s a time to plan, not act.

The number of the day is 7, a number of reassessment and reevaluation.
