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

Jupiter has moved into your Seventh House of partnerships, Taurus, and it will stay there for the next 12 months. This means that you’re going to feel more hopeful than ever when you’re dealing with others on a long-term, continual basis. Partnership implies “commitment.” That means, during the next 12 months, you could find luck and prosperity — and a sense of joy — in your dealings with others. Your Seventh House falls in the sign of Scorpio, so I imagine that the people you partner with (friends, lovers, business people) tend to stick around for the long haul and they can have a profoundly transformative effect on you.

The deeper you commit, and the more passionately you engage your partners, the more lasting they are. It can get intense, yes, and it can be risky and scary to “go there” with another person, I know. Sometimes, I imagine it may feel safer and cozier for Taurus to be alone for that reason. If you’ve been that kind of Taurus, though, during the next 12 months you will be more attracted to partnership, and taking the plunge. Will you get married? Will you enjoy your current marriage or relationship more? Will you establish other kinds of bonds with others that feel good?

As for the New Moon (or Black Moon as some call it), which happens on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017… It’s happening in your Sixth House of daily tasks and daily activities. The New Moon always brings tremendous energy to START something. It’s like you’re standing at the top of the stairs with your Slinky, about to set it off. What daily ritual, daily task, daily habit do you want to form? Does it involve a partner? Even better… The 6th House also deals with health and the body too, so you might start a new health practice or some way of organizing yourself and your environment in a way that’s better aligned with the practical needs of daily life.

Finally, whatever new, daily habits you start — whether it’s going for a run, drinking green smoothies, meditating in the mornings, cleaning your house better, or starting a routine for keeping track of your taxes — let them be divinely inspired, enlightened and perhaps a little shocking. Can you find a way to infuse the never-ending compassion of God into your daily life, Taurus? How do your daily life habits alleviate the suffering of your fellow human beings? Just in case it doesn’t feel comfortable pushing the Slinky off the top step — if you feel less than confident about it — move forward with this awkward feeling anyway, with caution, practicality and lasting determination.
