Weekly Astrology Forecast: October 26 - November 1, 2020

This week’s astrology overview includes the most anticipated event of October 2020

The Full Moon in Taurus on Saturday not only falls on Halloween, but it is also a Blue Moon, which means it’s the second Full Moon in a month. This event is extremely rare! The last time we had a Full Moon on Halloween was in 2001, and the last time a Blue Moon occurred on Halloween was in 1944.

This might be the last Halloween Full Moon and Blue Moon we see in our lifetimes, so it’s important to understand how we can harness and use this very special energy coming our way this week.

The Halloween Full Moon With Extra Magic

Here is what this rare Halloween Full Moon energy offers you:

First, you can expect opportunities to present themselves anytime from Thursday through Monday. Next, the earthy Taurus energy can bring some extra romance, allowing us to indulge in fun to relieve stress.

This event also marks a turning point for the 2020 forecast. As we wrap up the month celebrating, we are turning a corner towards what astrologers predict to be the best part of the year.

This week we also have both Mercury (which is still retrograde) and Venus moving into Libra on Tuesday. When the planet of love and the planet of communication is in this Air sign, expect socializing and friendships to blossom.

We may feel inspired to connect more with friends from way back with Mercury retrograde to rekindle those broken bonds.

How to Make the Most of this Week

Taurus takes us out of our minds and brings us back to our body, in the here and now. Let Saturday’s Full Moon help you find all the things we share in common to give the divisiveness a break.

We all like to laugh, spend time with friends, and eat our favorite candy!

This week’s astrology forecast outlook is positive because we are turning away from negativity and towards a time of celebration that will carry through the end of the year. Make time to have some fun and let your inner-child play this week.

You’ll find that there’s still much to be grateful for even in these challenging times.

Daily Astrology Snapshots for October 26 - November 1, 2020

Monday, October 26

Sun: Scorpio - We are drawn to things we can investigate and want absolute truths without grey areas under this influence. However, it’s not always possible to live in a black and white reality. There are always grey areas, so try to use tolerance as you wade through the emotional Scorpio water.

Moon: Pisces - With the Sun and Moon in a Water sign, we may be more easily swayed by our emotions and have trouble staying grounded. Try doing simple tasks around the house and not be impulsive.

Sun: Scorpio

Moon: Pisces

Ingress: Venus enters Libra. This transit lasts until November 21st, 2020. Under this influence, we are drawn to beauty and might just find ourselves having more fun picking fabulous outfits to attract the eye of someone we like.

We also are able to get out and make new friends. This is also a great time to try a new hobby.

Ingress: Mercury enters Libra. This transit lasts until November 10th, 2020. Our mind is directed to issues of justice during this time. We will cheer for the underdog who, against all odds, does the right thing.
