Weekly Horoscopes

October 3rd-9th

 ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Time for reflection.
On Sunday, the only full moon in Aries this year takes place, bringing a chapter to a close. Last April’s new moon began a six-month cycle, which is now in the process of completion. It may be that a situation is done and dusted and you are ready to move onto other things, or it could be that a stage has been reached and a project or relationship is set to morph into something more substantial. Full moons are always times of reflection, so, if you do nothing else over the weekend, take a long look at the moon and think about how far you have come in these past six months and what outcomes you might have changed, or, indeed, can still change.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Obeying the promptings of the unconscious mind.

There is a sense of an ending about your stars. Not only a full moon but also Pluto’s turning stationary-direct bring simmering situations to the bubble. Maybe those things that have reached boiling point are completely cooked; on the other hand, could they be adjusted to develop into something even more substantial? Take seriously any promptings from your unconscious mind, whether they come as sudden flashes of inspiration or in dreams, because they are alerting you to steps you need to take to enable you to thrive and prosper in the months to come.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Not to be shelved.

With Mercury back on track, mistakes could be emerging and information of importance reaching you. And it will be essential to act on information before you lose the momentum and a window of opportunity. Late October through mid-November is likely to produce events that could significantly change your long and short-term horizons, so snipping loose ends and strengthening your support systems will be useful exercises in the interim. Like Pandora’s box, what emerges at this time cannot be put back, cannot be changed, but it can be managed.

CANCER (June 21- July 22)

All full moons intensify emotions and signal crisis points. On many occasions a crisis leads to the resolution of a problem but sometimes it creates an even bigger one. So, while some Cancerians will feel blessed and enriched at this time others will feel lost and uncertain about what comes next. The full moon itself is not always the best moment to make a move in the wake of an upset but in the coming two weeks you will have time to think and solutions should emerge. Working and intimate relationships may well be in the frame, and with Pluto turning retrograde, push has come to shove.

LEO (July 23-August 23)
Time to roll up your sleeves.  

During Mercury’s retrograde passage, you may have been able to think of moves you should make in order to reduce stress and costs or to reach personal and professional goals that have thus far eluded you. On the other hand, you may have been frustrated in your efforts to put plans in place and are now concerned about the future. Whichever camp you fall into, this week could prove crucial to your success and happiness. It is time to admit what isn’t working and what dreams are no longer realizable, albeit for now. It is time to get real. Time to roll up your sleeves.

VIRGO (Aug 24-Sept22)
Values and valuables.

Sunday’s full moon cuts across the financial axis of your solar chart. A cycle has ended, an event that could be marked by the sealing of a deal or the acquisition of a major purchase or contract. Then again, this full moon could bring to a head a financial matter that can no longer continue unchecked. It’s time to do the sums and talk money with financial partners. How rich we feel, how full of value we feel, is vital to our emotional and material well-being, so even if you believe there are more important things to life than money and assets, recognizing you have much to offer is essential for getting other people to recognize it too.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Now or never.

Full moons are great deciders. They bring to the surface issues and feelings that need to be addressed so that we can move on and they preside over situations that need to be settled, one way or another. Relationships are the focus for this full moon, inspiring some Librans to make a long-term commitment and others to end one. Pluto is also stationary adding to the climate of extremes and ramping up the potential for situations to go either way. You’ll be over-the-moon happy or completely underwhelmed. Certainly, this is the right time to put your money where your mouth is.

SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21)
Pace yourself.

You’d think with Mercury having just got back on track that you’d know exactly what to do but, no, either you still don’t have enough information or you’re still feeling unsure. And here’s where Sunday’s full moon could come in very handy. Full moons inspire conclusions, whether in the sense of endings or understandings, and with Pluto turning stationary-direct at the same time, you should be in little doubt as to the right thing to do. Over the weekend, do your best not to push yourself beyond your physical and emotional limits, though: decisions made in extremes are often regretted.

 SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21)

The birthing process.
Full moons provide an opportunity to bring issues that are bothering us to the surface with a view to sorting them. The trouble is, emotions tend to run high at full moons, which can defeat the object of the exercise. With this in mind, especially over the weekend, give people plenty of time and room to say their piece, and neither give in to or give out ultimatums. By contrast, this could be a time in which a project is completed giving rise to a celebration. Indeed, for some Sagittarians, a gestation period in the truest sense is about to end, and a new little person shortly to arrive.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Nothing stays the same forever.
October is a month of profound conclusions with new eras emerging from those understandings or endings, and it all starts here with Sunday’s full moon on the axis of life-direction. You may already have plans to end a job or move to a new home location, which is one aspect of this full moon’s potential; on the other hand, events over the course of the next two weeks could inspire such things. You may also feel the need to resolve a matter that has been getting in the way of your happiness and progress. Especially if you have a birthday on or near January 17th or planets or points around 27 degrees of Capricorn, things are about to change big time.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Putting it all together.
As the week goes by, you should be able to put together the pieces of a puzzle you’ve been grappling with for a while. And the picture you end up with could be altogether different from your expectations. Realizations and reckonings are the theme of Sunday’s full moon, and although you may not want to act immediately on those understandings, you would be advised to set the wheels in motion before the solar eclipse of October 25th. We are approaching one of the most important and unstable periods of 2022, so you want to have as many as possible of your ducks in a row.

PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20)

Clarity and honesty.

October’s full moon (9th) is the ideal time to balance accounts, whether in regard to finances or other aspects of life. As a celestial Fish, you tend to swim away from unpleasantness in any form, but this is not a recommended practice now or, indeed, for the next six weeks. Realities need to be addressed and some practical decisions made. Other people probably need to know where you stand, and on a basis of complete honesty you can achieve a positive outcome. Even though you may have happy events to prepare for and attend, a little time should be spent doing sums and setting thing straight.
