Weekly Horoscopes October 13th to October 19th

All Signs

The heavens are mellow this week. The Sun and Mars are in Libra; Mercury and Venus are in Scorpio; Jupiter is still in its own sign Sagittarius, and Saturn is in its own sign Capricorn. Read on to see how this panoply of planets plays out in your chart. Naturally, the Sun and Mars in Libra are a boost of energy wherever they occur; but that saucy combo of Mercury and Venus in Scorpio cannot be ignored! Nevertheless, anything that gives you a few tips to help prepare for your future is a good thing, no? It’s also important to make time in your busy world to enjoy long romantic walks to the fridge.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The main thing to be aware of this week is that the Sun and your ruler fiery Mars are opposite your sign. This draws your focus to partners and close friends. In particular, this position of the Sun gives you the best opportunity all year to have the necessary objectivity to see how you relate to others. It’s a chance to improve your closest relationships and an opportunity not to be missed! Meanwhile, Mars will make you annoyed and impatient with others, which is why you experience tension and conflict. Fortunately, Venus will soften you and create cozy, sexual intimacy as well as attract money, gifts and goodies to you from others. Not too shabby!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A quick glance at the planets in your chart reveals this is the time to get performance ready for next year because you’re headed for a career peak. Meanwhile, Jupiter is beautifully placed so that you can get loans, mortgages and financial support from others. (And your partner is earning more as well!) Mercury and Venus are sitting opposite your sign, encouraging communication and friendly interaction with loved ones. (Nice.) Finally, the Sun and Mars are placed to make you work hard and get things done. You have lots of energy to accomplish what you want to do and you want to do a lot! And there you have it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

In some ways, you are getting along with less this year because your partner is earning less. Ironically, many of you are also enjoying a better relationship with partners and close friends because you are mutually happier. (Gosh.) This week, both Mercury and Venus will promote excellent working conditions for you. Mercury makes you want to roll up your sleeves and get hands-on with whatever you’re doing. Venus smoothes relations with coworkers and attracts praise and maybe even a raise your way. (Fingers crossed!) But underlying all of this, the Sun and fiery Mars want you to play, slip away on a vacation, enjoy sports events and explore romance along with fun times with kids. Enjoy!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Partnerships (professional and personal) have been challenging this year. Oh yeah. ((And it ain’t over till the fat lady sings.) Meanwhile, you have had, and will continue to have, abundant opportunities to improve your job, your duties, your work surroundings, your relationships with co-workers or perhaps get a better job? Mercury and Venus promise playful diversions and romantic flirtations this week. (Don’t sit home getting dusty.) Nevertheless, the Sun and Mars contradict these influences by appealing to you to cocoon at home and relate to parents. You might also need to stay at home to deal with crazy turmoil and increased activity that is taking place. Oy!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

One rewarding feature this year is you have found it easier to work hard and apply yourself with focus, determination and energy. “I’m Paul Bunyan!” Fortunately, in the spirit of “work hard/party hard,” Jupiter is giving you many opportunities to slip away on tiny vacations (and big ones as well) plus explore the arts, sports, fun times with kids and romantic opportunities. Both Mercury and Venus now encourage your interest in doing home repairs and redecorating as well as entertaining at home. “Welcome to my castle!” Meanwhile, the Sun and fiery Mars make your communications with others direct, to the point and filled with enthusiasm and dazzle! Everyone is hanging on your words.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s curious, but many of you are wondering what you really want to be when you grow up, no matter how old you are. That’s because this is a time of sober assessment. Fortunately, you have been able to improve your living situation this year. You have either moved to bigger and better digs, or you improved where you currently live by redecorating, renovating or fixing things up or just buying wonderful things so that you love where you live more. In the same vein (but in a different arm), you want to socialize and have fun schmoozing with others this week. Younger people and artistic, creative people in particular will appeal to you. Nevertheless, the Sun and Mars will keep your focus on money, earnings and cash flow – plus spending! (Keep your receipts.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This year you now that you want to secure your home base. Obviously, you need a refuge for yourself and your family. Therefore, focus on home and do whatever repairs are necessary. Meanwhile, Jupiter makes you optimistic and busy with plans for your future! Plans that are larger and more ambitious than you might normally entertain. For you, Mercury and Venus are focused on financial matters. Write down your moneymaking ideas. Venus will attract money to you as well as seduce you to buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. Do you have the energy for all of this? Oh yes you do! With the Sun and fiery Mars in your sign, you’re PowerPoint on steroids!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Many of you are in a state of flux, which is why your daily habits and surroundings are changing. Residential moves and job changes are on the horizon for many of you. Fortunately, this is your year to get richer. Yes! We like! This week, Mercury and Venus are in your sign making you talkative, inquisitive, busy and keen to express your ideas to others. They will encourage you to get out and travel because you need stimulation and a change of pace. Venus of course, makes you charming and diplomatic with everyone. Kiss, kiss, hug, hug. Nevertheless, the placement of the Sun makes you want to pull in and hide to seek refuge from the daily insanity out there. (Grab a skinny, no fat, dry cappuccino.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The universe has given you mixed messages this year. In one way, you feel stymied financially speaking. It’s hard to earn money. Nevertheless, your ruler lucky Jupiter is in your sign boosting your optimism and well-being to make you happier. (Fear not because the money will come next year.) Mercury and Venus now promote research and love affairs. (You devil.) Meanwhile, the powerful Sun and fiery Mars encourage friendships and much activity with groups, which is why you have found it best to work and cooperate with others. Strive to establish who you are with your friends. It’s important to fit in – but not at the cost of violating your integrity. (Which you would never do.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a significant time because from 2015 to 2017 (give or take a year) you let go of people, places and possessions. You streamlined your life so you could set off on a new path around 2018. This is a journey of about seven years wherein you will reinvent yourself. (Check out what you’re wearing three years from now compared to what you wore last year.) Meanwhile, this is a busy, fun-loving week because you’re talking to different kinds of people, learning a lot and hanging out with younger, artistic, creative types. And everyone admires you! (This is because the Sun, at the top of your chart, casts you in a flattering light.) Also, of course, because you are admirable!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You are downsizing and letting go of things in your life that are no longer relevant. This is why you’re going through closets, storage areas and garages to reorganize and get rid of what you don’t need. Meanwhile, this has been a popular time for you! You’re enjoying friendships and interactions with clubs and organizations. This week, conversations with bosses, parents and VIPs will go well because Venus makes you diplomatic and charming, while at the same time, Mercury encourages the flow of communications. But most of all, you want to travel to get outta Dodge. You need a change of scenery and exciting adventure!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your responsibilities have increased, which is why you have a finger in so many pies. While it’s important to fulfil your responsibilities to others, do not forget that your first responsibility is to yourself. If you don’t take care of yourself – you’re of no use to anyone. This continues to be your year to put your name up in lights, which is why others admire you, especially professionally. You’re a winner! Meanwhile, both Mercury and Venus are boosting your desire to travel and explore more of the world. You will also want to sign up for courses and study more because it’s time. This is a passionate week for you. Many of you are caught in disputes about inheritances, shared property and shared debt. Good luck.
