Your Weekly Horoscopes: October 27 to November 2, 2019

Intuition is high as the week begins with a potent new moon in Scorpio on the 27th. The new moon is refreshing itself and so should we, but a harsh connection between go-getter Mars and buzzkill Saturn on the same day makes it impossible to get ahead without hitting a wall. With Uranus also in the mix, be prepared for some unexpected variables. My advice? Ruminate now, take action later.

On the 31st, Mercury stations retrograde—also in the sign of Scorpio—just in time for Halloween. This “Spookygrade” wants us to reflect on past love and past heartbreak. So, let’s go deep. If it’s all getting too intense, some levity arrives on November 1 as love planet Venus moves into adventurous Sagittarius. No matter how painful, there’s room to laugh at—and learn from—our past mistakes.

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

7 scorpio

The new moon on the 27th is all about you. In fact, your sweetheart or BFF might surprise you with a birthday treat. You’ve been so worried about things that are out of your control lately so let someone else take the lead. Relax! It’s your season, after all. On the 31st, Mercury stations retrograde and you may find it hard to focus or organize your thoughts. Revisit old notes or emails to get perspective and recognize and celebrate your growth.

8 sagittarius

At the new moon on the 27th, it is extra important for you to take some time out of the spotlight. Log off your email and let someone else lead the meeting at work. Mercury stationing retrograde in your unconsciousness sector on the 31st inspires you to revisit a latent meditation practice or dream journal for the next few weeks. Try out a new look as Venus enters your sign on the 1st. It’s almost time for the birthday season glow up.


Change is on the horizon for your career and though there is so much to look forward to, you keep getting in the way of your own growth. At the new moon on the 27th, take a break from the self-sabotage to reconnect with your motivations. On the 31st, you run into an inspiring old friend. Plan a proper reunion with her in the next few weeks and make it a manifestation meetup. Use the occasion as an opportunity to set some long-term goals.

10 aquarius

Stepping into your power is the theme of Scorpio season and the new moon on the 27th offers a fresh start for your #careergoals. Since starting your current job, you’ve developed a completely different worldview and as Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st, you begin to contemplate whether it’s time to move on to something that better suits you. On the 1st, a run-in with a former coworker reminds you of a silly yet poignant accomplishment. Your impact is stronger than you realize.

11 pisces

You are fantasizing about your next vacation or spiritual pursuit at the new moon in Scorpio on the 27th. But with your travel buddies being flaky and cash flow a major concern, now is not the time to book the trip. An offer for a cheap flight or discounted hotel appears in your inbox as Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st. Take this as a sign that your ideal getaway is on the horizon.

12 aries

The new moon in Scorpio on the 27th lights up your shared resources sector. And though you have checks to cash, meetings to schedule and band practice to attend, the question is: Are you really on the same page? Ghosts-of-collaborators-past appear as Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st reminding you that even when you invested poorly, you gained wisdom. Invite your ex-business partner to drinks on the 1st and hear how far she’s come.

1 taurus

It’s OK to keep the details of your relationship a secret. Whether the new moon in Scorpio on the 27th finds you quietly eloping or clandestinely hooking up, all that matters is how it makes you feel. As Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st and your email blows up with missives from ex-lovers, read it all but tread carefully with your response. The drama is entertaining, but your energy is too valuable to waste all that time.

2 gemini

Improving your health has been on your mind, and the new moon in Scorpio on the 27th is a great time to meet with a trainer, see a nutritionist or buy some turmeric to make your own golden milk lattes. It’s harder to keep up with life’s daily challenges as Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st, so ask your BFF to be an accountability partner along the way. Take it slow as you get on track.

3 cancer

This week, you have babies on the brain as the new moon in Scorpio on the 27th inspires the “should we have kids?” question with your partner. What you thought would be a lighthearted date night conversation turns serious very quickly. How can you actually afford a child, let alone baby-proof your house? On the 31st, skip the Halloween rave and help your parent friends with trick-or-treat duty instead. You’ll know what you’re in for once you give it a try.

4 leo

The new moon on the 27th is an auspicious time to tidy up and host an intimate gathering at home. You’ll be happy the place is in good enough shape to host a house guest after an unexpected work obligation or canceled flight later in the week. On the 31st, celebrate Halloween by lighting some candles for your ancestors. Over the next few weeks, you will be called to dig deeper into your family history. Enjoy the dive!

5 virgo

What needs to be said? The new moon in Scorpio on the 27th lights up your communication sector and you put what’s on your mind into a TikTok dub, Facebook rant or Twitter thread. If it’s something controversial (or just something super close to your heart), consider whether the reaction is worth the trouble. As Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st, emails glitch and texts disappear into the void, so if it can’t wait until December, say it now.

6 libra

What do you really value? The new moon on the 27th is a chance to review some questionable financial decisions and get clear about what you need. It’s OK to cancel your yoga membership or return those coveted yet uncomfortable boots to the store. As Mercury stations retrograde on the 31st, pleasant surprises come in the form of credits to your account. Be thoughtful about this cash. Don’t waste money you didn’t even know you had!
