Your Weekly Horoscopes: October 23 to 29, 2022

It’s Scorpio season! Eclipses are here! Saturn is stationing direct! Hold on tight, because there’s no getting off this week’s rollercoaster of a vibe shift! First on the 23rd, the sun and Venus both enter fixed water sign Scorpio while discipline planet Saturn ends its retrograde in Aquarius. Happy birthday to our secretive Scorpios like Anne Hathaway, Ethan Hawke and President Joe Biden. Then on the 25th, we have a solar eclipse—a super potent new moon—in Scorpio. Eclipses are times of sudden beginnings and endings. This one in protective Scorpio insists on letting go of something that doesn’t work and committing hard to what does. Let fate take the wheel.

If that all wasn’t enough, Jupiter re-enters its home sign of Pisces on the 28th where the planet of relief and abundance last traveled from May 14 through July 28, 2021, and December 28, 2021 through May 10, 2022. Think back to goals you were pursuing around those dates because through the end of the year, you have another shot to go after them! 

Then finally on the 29th, communication planet Mercury leaves polite Libra for sharp Scorpio (after connecting with both harsh Mars and life changing Pluto earlier in the week). Under this influence, communication requires deep emotional intelligence and words are chosen carefully. 

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

This week’s solar eclipse brings shake ups to your finances and collaborations. To put it simply, you wanted something and now you have to pay for it. Maybe all those new clothes aren’t looking so good now that the credit card bill has arrived. Maybe that relationship you rushed into over the summer is suddenly giving you the ick. Before throwing everything away, take a moment to pause and consider what you really want. Your needs are clear so name your desires.

This week’s mantra: “My desires are valid.”

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

The solar eclipse on the 25th is here to stir powerful beginnings and endings in your closest relationships. Whether what shakes out is a surprise proposal or a sudden breakup, you’re in the process of clarifying which partnerships build you up vs. which take advantage of your generosity. If you’ve been struggling on a job hunt, this is also when things suddenly come together and contracts get signed. Where you’re at to start the week will be very different from where you arrive by week’s end.

This week’s mantra: “I’m open to change.”

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

The solar eclipse on the 25th brings the coworker drama that’s been building all year to a startling climax. What’s happening now isn’t really about you, but you can’t help but get sucked into the heated arguments going down on Slack over the pros and cons of returning to the office. Your ruling planet Mercury moves into Scorpio and your daily grind sector on the 29th, encouraging you to get back to those to-do lists, and to stay in your own lane for the foreseeable future.

This week’s mantra: “It’s not my problem.”

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

The solar eclipse on the 25th brings an awkward date that ends up being a blessing in disguise. You’ve been putting so much pressure on yourself to get everything in order this year: career, home, relationships and self-care. Everything at once. But maybe instead of forcing yourself to go on more half-hearted Hinge dates, spend some time reconnecting with a hobby. Play music! Draw! Read a trashy book! Give your inner child, not a lame date, your undivided attention.

This week’s mantra: “I love spending time with myself.”

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

Life has been overwhelming lately, and with so much up in the air, you’ve been escaping into fantasies about the future to get yourself through each day. But the solar eclipse on the 25th brings a humbling reality check. Moving to a different city won’t solve your cash flow issues. Getting out of a bad relationship doesn’t immediately give you better boundaries. You’re not going to grow unless you address the root cause of your dissatisfaction. Don’t underestimate the power of a good cry and a long chat with someone who feels like home.

This week’s mantra: “Wherever you go, there you are.”

Virgo (August 23 - September 23)

Tensions have been building in your friend group for months and at the solar eclipse on the 25th, all of those suppressed feelings come to the surface. Though you’ve been feeling rather isolated already, it might be better to put those group chat notifications on Do Not Disturb and resist the urge to be the mediator. Your ruling planet Mercury moves into Scorpio on the 29th and under this influence, gossip can become a deadly weapon. Be sure to only share your side of the story with those you really trust.

This week’s mantra: “I choose peace.”

Libra (September 23 - October 21)

The solar eclipse on the 25th brings either exciting or sobering news re: your financial situation. The same challenges you were experiencing back in April and May return, but this time you have a better plan of attack to get yourself back on track. This eclipse could also bring a sudden job offer or gig opportunity that provides a quick remedy for your overdue bills. No matter how it shakes out, this is a potent time to clear the blocks you have about accepting abundance.

This week’s mantra: “Let the cash flow.”

Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)

It’s finally your time, Scorpio! Your season starts off with a bang this year as there’s a solar eclipse—a super potent new moon—in your sign on the 25th. Usually the new moon in your sign is a moment to gently reset your image and self-care for the upcoming year, but this lunation might leave you feeling overwhelmed or in the midst of an existential crisis. Be gentle with yourself as this influence could also bring some challenges to your health. Be who you want to be! Who cares what anyone thinks?

This week’s mantra: “I have the courage to show up as myself.”

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Scorpio season finds you wanting to live life at more of a remove than you have been for the last several months. Major projects are slowing down, wedding season is finally (finally) over, and you’re ready to decompress with a marathon of Below Deck. But just when you thought all was calm, the solar eclipse on the 25th dredges up some painful memories that leave you wallowing in self doubt instead of relaxing. Let this be an opportunity to let go of what you can’t control so you can make space for what’s to come.

This week’s mantra: “This isn’t about me.”

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Scorpio season is always your most social time of year, and this one starts off with a bang! The solar eclipse on the 25th heralds a wild night out with friends or coworkers. Whether it’s a long night at the bar venting about your boss, the community event you’ve been looking forward to all year or a BFF’s surprise engagement party, try not to get too messy. It’s you who everyone’s looking to for guidance from at the end of the night!

This week’s mantra: “My words are powerful.”

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

The pressure is on this week, Aquarius, as your ruling planet Saturn stations direct in your sign on the 23rd. After a few months of review and reflection about how you want to show up in the world, the game is on! The solar eclipse on the 25th brings a surprising breakthrough moment for your career. Whether you’re interviewing for your dream job, getting a sudden promotion or stepping down from a position that no longer fits, this is the start of a new era for your professional life.

This week’s mantra: “I earned this!”

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Libra season was a heavy one for you, Pisces. So though Scorpio season starts fast and furious this week, you’re more prepared than most to wade in these turbulent emotional waters. The solar eclipse on the 25th brings an encounter with an old teacher or mentor that has you reconsidering your goals or career path. Is there room for you to dream bigger? Then your ruling planet Jupiter re-enters your sign on the 28th boosting your image and confidence for the rest of the year.

This week’s mantra: “My dreams can be my reality.”
