Weekly Horoscope: October 10 - 16

Mercury enters Libra again.

Mercury enters air sign Libra on Monday, October 10, at 7:50 PM and thoughts become more conceptual and meta. The last time this took place was around August 26, so conversations and ideas from then are coming back up now.

The sun harmonizes with serious Saturn on Tuesday, October 11, at 9:06 PM, helping us accept limitations and responsibilities. There can be a feeling of success despite limitations. Action planet Mars clashes with dreamy Neptune on Wednesday, October 12, at 1:46 AM: This is an active, generative aspect pushing us to improvise and carve ideas out of the ether.


Mercury, the planet of the mind, faces off with Jupiter, the planet of beliefs, at 3:23 AM on Wednesday, October 12 and facing the facts is complicated when the truth is so subjective! It’s time to let go of old beliefs that are stopping you from moving forward.

On Friday, October 14, Venus, the planet of love, harmonizes with serious Saturn at 2:20 AM. In relationships, we’re moving forward, which can mean things become more committed or we’re making peace with the end-game. Is it going to last? On an aesthetic level: refinement, mastery.

All times ET.

Cancer glyph

Cancer: June 21, 2022 - July 22, 2022

You might want a moment alone with your books and tools as Mercury enters a very private and personal sector of your chart. This is a moment for tinkering in your secret lab, so to speak—doing experiments when no one is around to see. There are things happening at home and with your family that need to be worked through. You could be thinking of ways to share the burden as the sun and Venus harmonize with Saturn, which is useful for asking others for help and commitment.

You’re gaining a better understanding of your relationships as the sun harmonizes with Saturn; things are moving forward with you and your partners! Other people in your life are taking on big responsibilities, and you are there to listen and learn, as well as cheer them on.

This is also a critical time for you to think about your self-esteem and your relationship to the material world.

You’re aware of what you’re committing to, and confronting feelings about social, romantic, and creative commitments, as Venus harmonizes with Saturn.

Scorpio glyph

Scorpio: October 23, 2022 - November 22, 2022

Libra season is all about the parts of life that are mysterious and mystical to you: your subconscious mind, your small but big role in the world, your secrets, and other people’s secrets. As the sun harmonizes with Saturn, you could very well feel existential and full of wonder about what lies beyond this world. This is a good time for wondering, but you have to remember that you don’t know everything—that’s impossible! Your planetary ruler Mars clashes with ethereal Neptune, which has you pushing for intimacy, connection. While Mars wants to separate, Neptune wants to merge… the tension between the two inspires you to find new ways to connect.

Sagittarius glyph

Sagittarius: November 22, 2022 - December 21, 2022

You are really pushing to understand other people as best as you can, however, you have to cut through your own perception first. Mars clashes with Neptune, the planet of illusions and beliefs, so your own past can easily color the way that you’re reading other people’s motivations and behaviors. Use this as an opportunity to create new channels in your brain that help you understand your relationships. Give people the benefit of the doubt, or ask them more questions in order to generate new stories. You can have a lot of hope for your friends, lovers, and future goals as Mercury faces off with your planetary ruler, Jupiter. There just need to be some clarifying conversations, and a letting go of smaller ideas to make things fit more neatly into your vision of the future..

Capricorn: December 21, 2021 - January 19, 2022

Big conversations about your work and purpose are taking place. Libra season is all about your calling, and what you feel like you’re supposed to be doing in this lifetime. It’s also a moment when you can be popular and in high demand. With Mercury, the planet of communication, entering Libra, your words and statements reach a wider audience. Be intentional with what words you’re speaking now. You’re able to see some fruit, reaping the benefits of your clout or authority as the sun harmonizes with your planetary ruler, Saturn. You have to find some balance between your passion projects and the things that the public wants from you, making a way to draw a connection between the two as Mercury faces off with Jupiter.

Aquarius glyphs

Aquarius: January 19, 2022 - February 18, 2022

Libra season has so much to teach you, dear Aquarius. You’re thinking very deeply about what you believe and how you embody those beliefs as the sun harmonizes with your planetary ruler, Saturn. Aquarius is known as a humanitarian or politically-minded sign. You’re making peace with the ways that your ideals do or don’t fit in with your way of life. You might be able to emotionally justify it, too, with Venus in harmony with Saturn. You could be feeling pretty good about the ways that you’re committed to yourself and how you relate to your self-image.

Pisces glyph

Pisces: February 18, 2022 - March 20, 2022

There are many different, conflicting things that can be true at the same time. Different stories and ideas are spawning and sprouting as Mars clashes with Neptune, whittling away at certain beliefs or misunderstandings. There’s a way to find a sense of unity or a common thread that runs through all the stories, and that’s through you! You are the common denominator. It’s totally fine for your experiences and thoughts to contradict themselves, because you’re simply allowed to have complex and site-specific feelings. In some settings it’s a yes, but in other settings it’s a no. There’s no real logic to it, it’s a vibe.
