Sunday, October 31  Halloween — from the realms of mythology, superstition, religion and metaphysics — does represent a trick-or-treat type experience in many ways. However, the good astro-zodiacal news this year is that fortuitous stellar happenings outweigh trouble-causing sky cycles. In your corner are the Moon in meticulous, small-is-beautiful Virgo forming a supportive, 60-degree alliance with the Sun in dynamic, persistence-pays-off Scorpio (1:59am), goddesses Venus and Juno uniting in a peace-and-happiness promoting conjunction at 26 degrees of Sagittarius (6:45am), the Moon trine intuition-boosting Uranus in Taurus (10:34am) and Messenger of the Gods Mercury in Libra trine benevolent Jupiter in Aquarius (9:19pm). By the way, this Mercury-Jupiter rapport is in its third rendition — having previously occurred on September 20 and October 3. Take advantage of all golden opportunities within your reach and know that as November begins the Sun in Scorpio will trine problem-solver and strategist Pallas Athena in Pisces (3:18am tomorrow) — offering an extra dose of illuminating knowledge and wisdom that can do wonders to enhance your self-confidence.
