Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of October 23rd
by Sarah Bartlett
From The Astrology Room
With the sun joining Jupiter in transformative Scorpio this week, we can now see before us the things we have lost and how they can be found again.
Whether through re-inventing your love life, or through changing your perception of life, this is a week to think carefully about what you have and don’t have, and what needs to be rediscovered.
With your ruler, Mars, moving into compromising Libra this week, and with so much focus on making new decisions, you’re ready to be more expressive to loved ones than you’ve ever been before. One minute you want to give more of your time to your career, then, the next minute, you feel ready to settle down in suburbia. It’s time to be true to your desires and make the right choice.
Dreaming about what you can achieve in a love relationship is one thing, but you’ve also realised you have to communicate it all too. You may feel regrets from the past washing over you again, and you may feel as if you just don’t seem to get your message across. But from the end of this week, you can. Then it’s time to be a bit of a brave heart and discuss your feelings openly.
Thanks to Saturn in your opposite sign of Sagittarius, it’s hardly surprising you’re fired up for all kinds of impulsive action. Just take care you don’t miss out on new love, or the revival of an extraordinary affair. Re-open the intuitive channels, tune into the moods around you, and make a very life-enhancing choice.
Deep down in your soul, you know that if your life gets too routine, you’ll only end up rebelling. So get out and about with your lover or partner, plan future changes, travel or new projects. Now’s the time to get out of a rut fast, especially when the wild and sensual side of you seeks liberation.
Think carefully about what you are feeling now. Are you ready to leap into new action, or to take a romantic opportunity that comes you way? And if so, are you happy to pay the price? It could be an expensive few months ahead, but the investment will soon be worthwhile.
There is a side to you which yearns for an unconventional love life, or maybe total independence. But there is also a part of you which needs to live like others too. Whether single or attached, this is giving you much food for thought. Drop the ideals, it’s time to trust in the kind of love that brings you back to reality.
With hot-headed Mars now cruising through your sign, it’s hardly surprising the passionate side of you hungers for romance. Use this empowering creative force to strengthen your own sense of identity and make something real. Then you can be loved for the adventurous person you actually are.
How can you maintain a love relationship and still honour your personal freedom? Living together makes sense financially, and, of course, there are many other benefits. But the desire for a little more independence is eating at your soul. This week, you will be tested in your loyalty and desires, but in the weeks to come, you will know where your true path lies.
Right now, anything can be sorted out, within reason, particularly personal goals. So for once, don’t compromise just to prevent an argument. Thanks to Saturn plundering on through your sign, it’s hardly surprising you feel you’re being torn apart by the stress of others. But with such an enterprising attitude to your own lifestyle and the way you’re going to live it from now on, focus on your love goals, say no to regrets, and say yes to revitalised self-worth.
You have a renewed passion for all you’re about to achieve. Remember, whoever we are, whatever we think ourselves to be, we can never escape ourselves. Right now, the cosmic energy is giving you a very clear mirror of who you really are. Polish that image well.
For a long time now, a part of you has been saying, ‘anything for an easy life,’ but there’s a teeny bit of you which longs for more excitement or just someone to smile at you in ’that way’. So this week, it’s time to make a wish. Remember, what comes true, is usually what we truly believe in.
Those things we long for are actually the very things we can learn to develop in our own love life. For example, if you envy those who appear to have stable relationships, it’s likely that deep down inside, you need to unleash your sensible side. Time to bravely change your attitude and you change your relationship for the better.
