Take a deep breath, fam, because we’re in for a big week. First, we’re wrapping up Libra season and entering Scorpio world on October 23rd. Scorpio is all about digging deep and asking the big questions about life; those born under this sign live for passion and intensity. So now is the perfect time to say what we need to say in order to reveal the truth of a situation and/our relationships. Factor in the powerful full moon in Taurus on October 24th, which is all about letting go and welcoming major changes, and we are about to get shook.
Lest we forget, we’re also in the middle of Venus in Retrograde in Scorpio, and how could we? Our relationships have been intense AF lately because of it. Unexpected conflicts, exes, confusion, jealousy, you name it, and we’ve been dealing with it. Now, in Scorpio land, we’re going to feel our emotions on levels we didn’t even know existed as we sort and sift through everything that’s been happening. The Full Hunter’s Moon will bring changes and excitement as well as feelings of uncertainty and doubt. In short, we’re in for one humdinger of a week when it comes to our relationships.
Here’s what else the stars have in store for you in your weekly horoscope.
Just when you didn’t think you could go any deeper, Scorpio, think again. You’re ruminating on all sorts of stuff right now, from the professional to the personal. As you reflect on what—or who—needs to stay or go, try to keep your decisions as balanced as possible. It’s easy to set everything on fire now, but there’s some things you should keep.
You’re looking at life differently, Sag. What seemed exciting before might not shine as bright now. While it’s difficult to give up something that you wanted, sometimes it’s in the letting go that we realize what we should hold onto.
This girl is on fire, Capricorn. Your passionate side has been reignited, and let’s be real: it feels weird. However, instead of overanalyzing what’s going on with your heart (and your loins), try to just…feel it. Feeling feelings is scary sometimes, but not acknowledging them is even scarier.
While your reflex is to run from intimacy, Aquarius, you’re being asked to stay put. Vulnerability is not only a form of strength, but it’s also the key to human connection. And as the humanitarian of the zodiac, connection is your jam. Open your heart.
You’re deep in your emotions, Pisces. What else is new? However, this week you’re being asked how to feel your feelings without letting them control you. Managing your emotions isn’t the same as suppressing them; it’s just knowing that waking up on the wrong side of the bed doesn’t have to reroute your entire day.
Don’t force the changes, Aries, let the changes happen to you. As much as you want to move ahead with a situation, it bodes well for you to put on the brakes. See how going with the flow can make things easier in your world. And when your infamous temper flares up? Take a breath. This is the new you.
Expect some big changes this week, Taurus. Yes, I know, you hate change. So this week will feel tough. However, change is necessary for growth, and once you get used to the idea of this transformation, you’ll soon realize how you should’ve made this change, like, yesterday.
It’s time to move out of your head and into your feels, Gemini. This is a big ask for you. You’d rather think your way out of your feelings, but you’re being asked to feel your way through them. It’s going to feel super awkward, and that’s a good thing.
It’s time to get out of your comfort zone, Cancer. While your default is to retreat when life gets messy, the stars are urging you to move forward in spite of the yuckiness. Own the part you’ve played, and don’t be afraid to get a little dirt on you. That’s how we learn to lean into our integrity.
While you’d like to move forward already, Leo, the stars want you to feel your feelings a bit more. You’re in the midst of a life shake-up, and while it feels disorientating right now, it’ll eventually point you in the right direction as a fully evolved and enlightened.
Don’t criticize yourself for feeling the way you feel, Virgo. Everyone has the right to feel their feelings, including you. Your go-to is to brush your emotions aside, rationalizing your actions and decisions. But now you need to know that it’s okay to feel so deeply and, more importantly, that it’s totally okay to feel this way again.
You are feeling out of balance lately, Libra, which is freaking you out. However, as the quote goes, “If you do not create change, change will create you.” Your life is being shaken up right now—because it needs to be. The irony of it is once you make the decision to be fine with it, things will smooth out.
Well, don’t say you haven’t been warned, bbs. While this week will be tough AF, it’ll also open us up to new ways of being and feeling, which can only bode well for our future relationships—with others and with ourselves.
