Horoscopes for Oct. 11-17, 2023
March 21 – April 20
You’re being invited to go deeper into a relationship than is usual for you. Rather than skimming the surface, this week’s Eclipse will cast a shadow over the areas you’re likely to gloss over for the sake of keeping the peace. This may get worse before they get better. However, you’re more empowered to go to where angels fear to tread than usual – and that is a good thing!
July 21 – August 20
You could benefit a lot from getting back to some kind of daily ritual you know is good for you. It may be some form of spiritual practice or simply devoting more time and energy to topics you’re curious about. You don’t have to turn your life upside down, though you would benefit greatly from doing small things regularly and let the compounding effects of your effort yield rewards over time.
November 21 – December 20
Your circle of acquaintances and friends is about to change. As you rub elbows with new people, it’s to be expected that you’ll spend more time with them. This may upset some of your longer-standing friendships. Keep the peace if you must, but also be aware that the revolving door of connections spins to help you separate the wheat from the chaff in your life from time to time too.
April 21 – May 20
We all have to do what we have to do in order to keep the lights on, so to speak. There is always another problem to solve, another obligation to honor. That being said though, if you’re feeling like little more than a rat in a cage, then free yourself. More often than not, it’s the way you think about the problem is the problem. Save yourself, because no one else is going to do it.
August 21 – September 20
With Venus’ arrival in your sign, you’ll be in a position to put your best foot forward. Sprucing up your image or appearance may be just what you need to improve your self-confidence and your self-image. It’s time to be investing in yourself. If it’s not a physical or aesthetic improvement you’re looking to make, anything to do with self-improvement or development will be supportive for you now. Do something for yourself that your future self with thank you for.
December 21 – January 21
Changes brought by this week’s eclipse land in your Career and Life Direction Zone. This might mean you’re changing jobs or at the least, you’re likely to be weighing up what you want out of life overall. Just because you spent a long time reaching the summit of your current position doesn’t mean that there aren’t new mountains to climb. Sometimes it’s best to cut your losses and start over but you don’t have to burn bridges in the process.
May 21 – June 20
You are probably spending so much of your personal energy on fun, children and simply having a good time. Good for you! Chances are, this week’s eclipse will also help you see what true joy means in your life. It may not be what it used to be, and that’s OK. In fact, when it comes to living your best life now, it’s the simple things that are often the best.
September 21 – October 20
It’s time to scratch below the surface and ask yourself what it is that YOU want. If you’re tired of going along to get along, events of this week may ask you to take a good hard look at yourself and let something go. It is the image of what you thought your life should be? Is it the story you keep telling yourself? If you truly want a new plotline in your life, then you have to be willing to let go of the current plotline.
January 21 – February 20
Sometimes life hits us with a set of circumstances that prompt the changing of everything. What once held meaning no longer does. What was once purposeful, no longer feels like a challenge. Sometimes life tests our faith. It’s OK to no longer want what you once did and decide you’re ready to change your mind. Changing your mind doesn’t come easy for you, but change is inevitable so best start flowing with it.
June 21 – July 20
Your home life is under the it’s spotlight this week. Whether is a situation of locality or the level of domestic harmony – or lack thereof, you’re dealing with, things are likely to shift this week. Let the applecart get upended if that is what needs to happen. If you’ve been playing Mr. Nice Guy, it might be time for you to change that. You don’t have to compromise at your own expense.
October 21 – November 20
Sometimes our fears and phobias are little more than scary monsters we imagine are under the bed. Then there are times where those scary monsters reflect real issues that need to be dealt with. An eclipse in your “scary monster zone” will backlight the real, the imagined and everything in between. With Mars in your sign, you’ll have the cosmic weapon to slay whichever dragon that is currently disturbing your peace
February 21 – March 20
It’s been a difficult year for you so far. New responsibilities have meant having to reinforce a few boundaries. As such, the entanglements you share with others have probably changed too. Maybe you simply aren’t capable of giving what you once did. Compromise is key. However, that doesn’t mean simply falling into old ways. You’ve come too far just to come this far. You may need to lose in the short term to gain in the long term.
