Horoscopes for the week of Oct. 17, 2017 to Oct. 30, 2017:

I’m not afraid to tell you that I saved you for last, Aquarius. That’s because, out of all the signs, you don’t mind having the “limelight” given to someone else — as long as you can stand to the side and observe and study us, and as long as we let you be your unique and eccentric self.

Aquarius doesn’t choose his or her path based on the “correct” ideas of other people. You choose your path based on what’s correct for YOU… And, while you’re at it, you tend to rationally and diplomatically consider the planet as a whole, the larger group of humanity, and what’s good for the community. That is, if you are truly shining your Aquarian Sun.

The New Moon, at 26 degrees Libra, happens this Thursday, on Oct. 19, 2017. It’s aligned closely to your Midheaven (a.k.a. your career/reputation point). The New Moon happens in your Ninth House of Philosophy and Higher Education. Think “Mind Expanding Theories,” foreign places, foreign ideas, and foreign perspectives.

I wonder if you’re going to be thrust into the limelight so to speak, as a result this New Moon. You — who’d rather not be the center of attention — may have all eyes upon you. The New Moon also brings the energy to start something. Can you take a step forward in your career? Perhaps, take a brave and surprising move that no one expected, or do something that involves being seen? I’m not saying that you should invent this out of thin air and jump without thinking, but maybe you should — at the very least — think about any new developments that might be present in your career/reputation. If you know what these are, and they’re aligned with how you’re yearning to express yourself in the world, then this Thursday and the five days that follow, would be a great time to start diligently planning. Organize the safe and practical steps it will take to do/express this thing. Stay positive, open-minded, and don’t worry if you feel awkward or unconfident. Perhaps you will soon be shining as the rebel-genius who takes action for the betterment of mankind.

As a final word: The slow, cautious mover is the one who wins the race. Take your time and plan the revolutionary change in your career/reputation with conservative practicality. I’ll be curious to know what’s going on for you in these areas on Thursday and the days that follow, Aquarius.
