Space Weather News for Oct. 22, 2018

INFERIOR CONJUNCTION OF VENUS: This week, something strange and wonderful is happening to the shape of Venus. Telescopes pointed at the second planet show it becoming very large (larger, apparently, than Jupiter) and curving into a narrow crescent. Astronomers call this an "inferior solar conjunction"--when Venus passes almost directly between Earth and the Sun. The event is extremely beautiful, yet dangerous to observe. Visit today's edition of Spaceweather.com for photos and safe observing tips.

Venus is retrograde in the sign of Scorpio, joining Mercury and Jupiter, intensifying the Scorpio effect. As Venus retrogrades, it will sextile Saturn in Capricorn, indicating an opportunity to refinance or heal a relationship.

When Venus is retrograde, there can be a re-visiting of relationships. Perhaps someone from the past is in contact. Since Venus is retrograde in Scorpio, there could also be a re-visiting of financial situations, perhaps planning to restructure them. If your relationship is difficult, look to the woman's emotions as being off balance or intense.

This is a good time for Scorpio to further financial plans. Taurus may sense opposition, although if keeping to the practical good business. Cancer and Pisces enjoy good finances and relationships, although early Cancer may feel opposition. Virgo and Capricorn have an opportunity to tweak fiances and renew relationships. Libra and Sagittarius should be neutral, although early Libra may experience challenges with plans. Aries and Gemini adjust to love relationships wanting to be close; Leo and Aquarius may experience relationship control issues.

ARCTIC AURORAS LIKELY THIS WEEK: An irregular hole in the sun's atmosphere is spewing a stream of solar wind toward Earth. Estimated time of arrival: Oct. 24th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras when the gaseous material arrives. A bright full Moon on Oct. 24th will add its luminosity to that of any geomagnetic storm, creating some nice landscape photo-ops around the Arctic Circle. Expect communication disruptions. The energy is coming through Scorpio.
