Weekly horoscope for October 10-16

After reaching a peak with the full moon, the overall cosmic energy begins to mellow out. However, this week will keep us on our toes, when moving with full awareness will be necessary. Intense Mars will form a square with Neptune, a combination that instigates confusion and paranoia. If you end up running into some juicy gossip, don’t spread it or act on it, as there’s a big chance it’s not even true or is being blown out of proportion. 

The great news is that Mercury, our cosmic trickster, enters Libra, the sign of harmony, balance, and justice. We can now fully communicate clearly and from the heart, and perhaps even heal a relationship wound from September. In fact, the universe still instigates deep healing this week, so allow yourself to go there. 

If you have been waiting for the perfect time to sign a contract, this could be the week, as three planets (Venus, the Sun, and Mars) send shiny beams to Saturn. This is especially true if you’ve been working on reading the fine print and doing your research. Under this weather, the relationships and partnerships that begin will be profitable and long-lasting. 

The weekend is ideal for getting creative, getting lost in a book, and hosting your favorite people for a small get-together.

Open your heart to healing, Aries. Whispers, thoughts, and maybe even messages from the past could come back at the beginning of the week. With Mercury now direct and activating your sector of partnerships, it’s time to express how you really feel without worrying about the consequences. For quite some time now, you have been on a deep spiritual journey that involves defending your freedom, rebellious nature, and authenticity—and this week reactivates themes of that journey. 

Taurus weekly horoscope

Pay attention, Taurus. The Moon will be in your sign on Tuesday and Wednesday, sending messages your way that will be key for your future growth. The information you receive now could be crucial for handling the end of October and the beginning of November, so take note. On a more tangible note, this is a good week to make any financial moves you’ve been considering. Act now, because once Mars goes retrograde on October 30, your financial landscape will more a bit murkier.

Mercury, the cosmic messenger, is now direct in your home sector, Cancer. You now have free reign when it comes to having tough conversations and making moves that will help heal any relationship residues from September.

If you’ve been working on a paper, pitch, or book, this week’s astrology is a golden opportunity for just letting the words flow.
