Your Weekly Horoscope: October 6 - October 12, 2021


Sept. 23-Oct. 22

There’s a new moon in your sign this week and it is imploring you to think about boundaries. How you resource your own inner knowing, the validation you offer yourself and your willingness and ability to be forthright about all that insight is on the table. What you choose to do with it is on you. Don’t allow others to make decisions for you this week. Make it your top priority to clarify what is authentic for you and then prioritize that. You’ve got this, Libra.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Passions are running high this week and so are defenses. This is not only likely to make you feel bad, but to complicate your relationships and make it difficult to stay present. Beware of the temptation of obsessing on a past that cannot be changed, or a future that cannot be known. What you have, my intense friend, is the present moment, and that’s pretty much it. Be a good steward to it minute by minute.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You’ve been working hard to create changes, but it’s time to actually embody them, Sagittarius. This may mean needing to let go of old habits or ways of being that you’re actually pretty attached to. Don’t confuse the feelings of resistance to change with an internal sense of no. Even if you’re capable of taking five steps forward, focus on putting one foot in front of the other this week. Create time to rest and digest, not only to go go go.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

This week you may find yourself caught up in a web of worried thinking, tangled up in what if’s and other wastes of your precious energy. Instead of ringing your hands over what was or may be, get grounded in the present moment. There are things you can do, no matter how small they are, that are life-affirming and fortifying. Choose those things, especially when you feel stalled or are tempted to indulge in negative thinking.

Whatever it is that you do, strive to make it life-affirming, especially to connect your grounding relationships to the physical world around you. This is a valuable time for positioning or repositioning yourself in ways that are productive and more generative. Change your perspective and watch the rest flow, Aquarius.

Feb. 19-March 20

Prioritize your relationship to your inner world, especially when you're looking for answers this week. What are you holding onto, Pisces? This week has such intense energy and it may find you in a reactive anxiety state. Strive to soothe your heart and mind before you take any action. You run the risk of acting reacting defensively for or from an anxiety state, and all this will do is make you feel worse. Real growth occurs from the inside out.

May 21-June 21

While this week is likely to overwhelm you, your best bet is to not get fixated on the details of your situation. What’s really going on is you are being tested around how you cope with emotions and thoughts that flood you and spark anxiety or restlessness. Instead of looking outside of yourself for answers or reasons why, look within to understand your own reactions and, if necessary, actions.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

While you may find yourself feeling helpless or hopeless this week, your emotions are not necessarily a reliable indicator of what’s actually happening. You’re overwhelmed, Virgo, and before you go trying to figure things out or fix them, prioritize recharging your energy this week. Fortify your body and simplify your immediate environment by doing something like cleaning your desk or emptying your inbox, and try to get some rest. Clarity will be close at hand once you feel a little different.
