As the radiant Sun and clever Mercury join motivator Mars in resourceful Scorpio, sign of transformation, this power-packed planetary trio amplifies everyone’s ability to influence conditions and situations. What you focus your energy and attention on this week is where change will manifest. Here is your weekly horoscope for October 22-28.
Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 21
This week requires your being aware of the difference between responding and reacting. Under provocation, step back and assess the best course of action. A calm and considered approach is likely to get more successful results and less blowback than an explosion of Aries temperament.
Taurus, Apr 22 – May 21
It’s been observed by energy experts that what we resist persists, something we all know is annoyingly so. So if this week brings a replay of an all too familiar scenario, rather than adopting defense mode, try relaxing into a more receptive attitude and negotiable approach. Can’t hurt – might work.
Gemini, May 22 – Jun 22
When your planet ruler and communication principle Mercury slides into secretive mode, it’s best to strengthen your passwords and keep confidential information under wraps for the time being. If your trust alarm goes off, listen. Put anything that feels sketchy on hold while you conduct due diligence.
Cancer, Jun 23 – Jul 23
If you were thinking about relegating something to the too-hard basket, think again. This week’s cosmic energy injection from Mars, the happening red planet, converts diffidence to confidence, and suggests that whatever you choose, you’ll receive positive support and possibly even rave reviews.
Leo, Jul 24 – Aug 23
Fiery Mars in a fixed sign like your own is known to generate no mean amount of steam heat. If this week brings issues to a crescendo, stay in observer role and let dramas play out. Approach protagonists again once the air clears and smoke stops pouring out of their nose.
Virgo, Aug 24 – Sep 23
Mind master Mercury, your mentor planet moving into the sign of forensic investigation isn’t a time for idle chit-chat or superficial small talk. As communication dives from cheap to deep, this week supports in-depth, honest conversations with yourself, with others, or a professional therapist.
Libra, Sep 24 – Oct 23
In astrology Libra rules the kidneys, the body’s organs of detoxification. This week offers a unique opportunity to delete some old conditioning around conflict management, and the possibility of handling certain behaviour patterns differently. Your personal balancing act? Between discipline and experimentation.
Scorpio, Oct 24 – Nov 22
The sun and Mercury joining Mars in your deepwater sign announce that this is your annual high season for… well, just about anything. You’re absolutely in your element this week, and if anyone knows how to maintain an air of mystery that keeps people wanting more, it’s your Scorpionic self.
Sagittarius, Nov 23 – Dec 21
If that financial situation you were hoping would magically go away by itself shows no sign of dissipating, get pro advice if needed, and know that the best way to address this is one step at a time. This week’s celestial energy supports your patience and persistence levels.
Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 20
Metamorphic transits like the current one are not one size fits all; everyone navigates them differently. Some people relish them and flourish; for others they bring a dark night of the soul. Whatever your experience this week, positive planetary support is available, so listen for downloads.
Aquarius, Jan 21 – Feb 19
Yes, there could be surprise revelations this week which nobody expected. Your personal pressure test will be remaining open-minded, stretchy-bendy flexible and negotiable in situations where no-one’s willing to give an inch, or to offer information which would help. Trying… but do your best.
Pisces, Feb 20 – Mar 20
Rocking the boat isn’t Pisces’ usual style, because you already know from past experience how that can cause way more than a gentle wave. As this week waters the lawns of your emotional landscape, trust that doors will open and the way forward will become clear. Be alert for clues.
