Astrologer Jennifer Racioppi is here with the celestial weather report for the week, with a wellness twist! Here’s her best advice on getting the most out of the next seven days with your food, fitness, and self-care choices—no matter what your sun sign is. 

Monday, October 29

The week begins on a promising note. With Mercury, the planet of communication, conjoining Jupiter, the planet of good luck, while making a manifesting trine to Chiron, Monday holds great potential and brings ample support. Tune in to this potential and accept it. Today’s aspects support you to foster an even healthier mindset. To that point, spend time journaling, especially about what the last year has brought forth for you.

Monday holds great potential and brings ample support. Tune in to this potential and accept it.

With Mercury and Jupiter meeting up and blending forces today in the sign of Scorpio, take time to dialogue with yourself. Jupiter has traveled in Scorpio since October 10, 2017. Next month on November 8, it exits Scorpio, entering into Sagittarius, and won’t return to Scorpio until 2029. Consider what you have learned since Jupiter came into this sign a little more than a year ago. How have you grown?

Tuesday, October 30

Venus, which continues its retrograde journey, squares the nodes of fate today as it opposes Uranus. This combination pushes you to own your value, and take a stand for your beliefs. Embrace an attitude of grit, determination, and resilience as you own your voice. If something or someone leaves today, let it go. On a positive note, you’re becoming very clear on what you know you need to do and what you want. Trust that your voice is emerging. It’s guiding you precisely where you need to go!

Wednesday, October 31

Happy Halloween! Today brings rich and nuanced transits—retrograde Venus moves from Scorpio back into Libra. Simultaneously, Mercury moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius. With Venus and Mercury both changing signs on this spooky day, we find ourselves at both a crossroads and a turning point. How apropos for Halloween.

On this day of masks and costumes, invite in your creativity. Allow yourself to connect with your inner child (the moon being in Leo is totally supportive of that). However, be careful not to overeat the Halloween candy. Sugar indulgences are an easy way to numb out. Stay connected to your creativity, and your higher self.

Thursday, November 1

Embrace healing, joy, and pleasure. With the moon traveling through playful and fun Leo, keep your focus on what feels right and light. Simultaneous to the moon traveling in fiery Leo, Jupiter in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces too, illuminating deep healing. With the first day of November here and only two more months left in 2018, embrace the positive. You may find yourself making progress with soul goals. With the end of harvest season now here and the day of the dead upon us, it’s said that the veil between our world and the unseen world is the thinnest. Tune into your psychic capacities and see where they lead you.

Friday, November 2

The work week ends with the waning moon in Virgo. Now’s the time to ditch the lingering candy from Halloween. If you have kids, consider introducing them to Switch Witch, a fictitious character who trades candy for a toy. With the holiday season fast approaching, stay mindful of healthy eating habits. Remember fresh leafy greens, grass-fed meats, organic fruits, and water go a very long way. Committing to great eating habits now helps you stay in integrity with what your body needs as the holidays hit.

Saturday, November 3

Embrace today for what it is, a day to accomplish chores and tasks. Saturday, also known as Saturn’s Day, provides the precious space required to maintain your life—use it to your advantage. Even though chores often feel mundane, they help you live in integrity with your best experience. Take time to plan what needs to get done thoroughly.

The waning moon in Virgo supports you to clean and organize your life. Getting things done, and tidying up, opens up the ability to manifest what you most desire.

With daylight savings time commencing tomorrow and fewer hours of sunlight available, you’ll want to feel organized and ready for the darkness ahead.

Sunday, November 4

Hello, daylight savings time. Even though there’s less daylight, you can (potentially) get an extra hour of sleep! Amazing. Enjoy it if you can. Remember, rest is one of the most beneficial things we can offer our body. Even with sunset happening earlier, and the days ahead about to become way shorter, attune yourself to this opportunity. Darkness provides rejuvenation. So give yourself space to adjust to this critical moment. Yoga, reiki, meditation, and mindful workouts support you immensely now. With winter just around the corner, calming the mind and going within remains crucial.
