Your Weekly Horoscope: October 13 to 19, 2019
This week starts off running with a full moon in Aries on the 13th. Imbued with the joie de vivre of the most enthusiastic and energetic sign in the zodiac, this lunation is our big cue. We must give in to what’s inevitable. By later in the week, as things calm down, we’re ready to process what happened as communication-planet Mercury in moody Scorpio makes harmonious connections with tough love Saturn, hazy Neptune and life-altering Pluto. Whether it’s a productive therapy session or a late-night heart to heart with a soul sister: let it out!
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
Are you ready to commit? On the 13th, the full moon illuminates your house of both partnerships and contracts so get ready to seal a deal. If your boyfriend proposes, will you say yes? If you’re offered the job, will you accept? Take control of the situation even if someone else is popping the question. Remember that the euphoria you feel when signing onto something huge isn’t the whole story. Get ready for the long haul.
Don’t let yourself down, dear Scorpio. Now that you’ve finished celebrating this summer’s major career breakthrough, the full moon on the 13th shifts your focus to the daily grind. If your coworker is slacking or if a joint error causes a missed deadline, take a pause to reconfigure the flow. Have the conversation out of the office and over drinks if necessary. Say your piece, have your Chardonnay and then return to the tasks at hand.
Even though you’re circulating more than ever these days, all the schmoozing has left you feeling empty. On the 13th, let the full moon inspire you to follow your bliss. Bring the kids to the super cute fall harvest festival and get your face painted, too. Take yourself on a date to a Mud and Merlot class at the ceramic studio. Who cares if what you’re doing is silly? Or isn’t advancing your career? Get busy with things you actually enjoy.
At the full moon on the 13th, you realize that even in your most private space, it’s impossible to escape drama. This week, your recently divorced sister-in-law arrives to stay indefinitely on the couch, your daughter’s playdate ends, yet again, in tears and the dog has peed all over the new Moroccan rug. It’s a testament to the foundation you’ve built that you can remain calm through the farce. Stay strong and text a friend all the updates when you must vent.
Just because it isn’t about you doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention. At the full moon on the 13th something major happens…for your sister (or your best friend who feels like one). Whether it’s taking the reins on her haphazardly planned engagement party, talking her out of flippantly quitting her job or being the first responder to her pregnancy scare, you must take the lead. Be the voice of reason you always wish to see in the world.
Tempted by a prix fixe menu? Desperately seeking a leather jacket? Or just in search of more clients? The full moon on the 13th inspires you to manifest some items from your wish list by letting the world–or your friends–in on what you really want. By the end of the week, you may even find a gift in your mailbox or some cash in your Paypal balance. Abundance comes when you make your values known.
Sometimes when life feels out of control, all you need to change the narrative is a fresh routine. With the full moon in your sign on the 13th, focus on revitalizing your approach to skin care. Ditch those cheap washes with toxic ingredients and start a ritual made up of clean beauty products. It might even be a good time to check in with your dermatologist to further discuss the best options for your face. You are ready to glow.
With the full moon on the 13th illuminating your house of the unconscious, allow yourself to step away from the grind. Whether it’s skipping Pilates to relax at a sound bath or trusting a friend to pick the restaurant for once, let yourself be guided by experience. You may also benefit from some automatic writing or morning pages later in the week. Leave your ideas on the page so you can return to them when you’re ready.
Make the most of your popularity this week, Gemini. The full moon on the 13th lights up your social sector and everyone–even that usually scowly barista–wants to be your BFF. Don’t just chat and flake per usual, though. Instead, use this energy to organize with purpose in your community. Plan an impromptu charity fundraiser or invite all of your friends to volunteer at the local senior center. Together, you can make a difference.
Whether you love it or hate it, all eyes are on you this week, Cancer. With the full moon on the 13th highlighting your career sector, this is a particularly auspicious moment to take the lead. Pitch an idea you’ve been shy about at the full staff meeting, cold call that seemingly out-of-reach potential client or just do it: ask for a promotion. It’s amazing how quickly something risky falls into place when we simply make our request with confidence.
Your sweet escape is just around the corner, Leo. At the full moon on the 13th, you are finalizing next spring’s European vacation, attending an info session for your top choice master's program or finally starting that herbalism apprenticeship. Though this mind-expanding opportunity has been in the works for ages, double-check that all the details are in order before you embrace the sea and fly away. Put in the work as you follow your heart.
Whether you’re merging bank accounts with your fiancé, launching the Kickstarter for your holistic wellness business or signing a lease with one too many roommates, the pressure is on regarding shared finances at the full moon on the 13th. Per usual, it’s on you to keep things organized because your partner keeps spacing on the details (yes, he needs to bring both IDs!). You don’t want to regret this investment so make sure you're communicating every step of the way.
