Your Weekly Horoscopes: October 3 to October 9
This week’s mantra? Kill them with kindness. The new moon in Libra on the 6th promises a fresh start for our relationship dynamics and social obligations, but this isn't a polite Libra reset. Expect plenty of passive aggression, backhanded compliments and secrets divulged out of spite. Information can definitely fall into the wrong hands under these skies, so when in doubt, keep your lips sealed. If you do find yourself in the middle of a nightmare conflict, next week looks clearer for apologies.
In lighter news, Venus leaves Scorpio’s emotional waters for the intrepid landscape of Sagittarius on the 7th. Flirtations and adventurous romance are a welcome distraction to all the drama. As Venus in Sagittarius native David Bowie sang, “Let’s dance!”
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
Time to reset your relationships, Aries. The new moon on the 6th is about learning how to be fairer when you fight. Sure, your boyfriend is totally wrong about…everything, but that doesn’t mean you have to condescend. Lean into your under-utilized patient side. You might learn that you actually love that part of yourself.
This week’s mantra: Patience is never a waste of time.
Have you been considering training for a marathon? Switching from Yin Yoga to Power Vinyasa? Or just finally using that virtual Pilates subscription that you’ve been paying for since the beginning of the pandemic? The new moon in Libra on the 6th is for going hard with a new fitness routine. Time to get sweaty!
This week’s mantra: Why not go hard?
A former lover slides into your DMs this week and he’s not being subtle. He wants you back. The new moon on the 6th promises fresh romance in your life, but is it possible that you’re ready to start from scratch with this former flame? Just because things didn’t work out in the past doesn’t mean they can’t in the future.
This week’s mantra: This year is for second chances.
Your living situation becomes untenable as the new moon in Libra highlights your home sector on the 6th. Your landlord is never available to make any repairs and you’re on your last nerve with your neighbors who practice the drums from dawn until midnight. Now’s not the time to move, but while Mercury is still retrograde, start researching your options for peace.
This week’s mantra: Don’t accept defeat.
The new moon in Libra on the 6th brings a spark of inspiration. You’re writing furiously, talking up a storm and sending curated Spotify playlists to all of your coworkers. You want to lift up the people who surround you while being more intentional about how you contribute to the community. Just be careful not to get too carried away. Your words are generous but your tongue is sharp.
This week’s mantra: Use momentum strategically.
Ongoing financial stress peaks at the new moon in Libra on the 6th. After a successful independent project release or freelance endeavor last month, your earnings are dwindling as you realize just how expensive it actually is to go into business for yourself. Once the orders are fulfilled, it’s time to go back to the drawing board to create something more sustainable.
This week’s mantra: Cut your losses and try again.
You’re not as polite as you pretend to be, Libra. Even your divisive opinions need to be heard. The new moon on the 6th is for you to take the mic and speak your piece. Who cares if a frenemy no longer wants to come to your birthday party? When you show up authentically, you attract the real ones.
This week’s mantra: Don’t hold back.
Toss your expired makeup, download a meditation app and book a retreat at a cabin upstate, taking along only what you need. This week’s new moon on the 6th (followed by your ruling planet Mars meeting the sun on the 8th) is a once in two-year opportunity for you to hit the reset button. Leave behind what isn’t working and start again.
This week’s mantra: You can’t fully stop until you let yourself be still.
Your coworkers are unionizing, your BFF’s baby shower needs planning and you're weeks late on sending out the latest edition of your neighborhood newsletter. The new moon on the 6th puts community support at the top of your to do list. So roll up your sleeves and get ready to solve everyone’s problems.
This week’s mantra: Your people need you.
You crave authority, Capricorn, and you also know power is something that must be seized. At the same time, you want to follow the rules and do things the correct way. Usually, you’re all about the slow burn. This week’s new moon on the 6th is an invitation to step into your boss era. It’s OK if you have to skip a few steps or ditch your methodical approach. Let yourself go a little rogue.
This week’s mantra: Taking control sometimes requires a crash landing.
Sure, it’s great to do everything on your own, but couldn’t you also use some advice? The new moon on the 6th brings a deadline for you to decide what’s next in your career, except you have no idea what to choose or which way to go. A conversation with a trusted colleague or a former mentor pushes you out of ambivalence.
This week’s mantra: Look outside yourself.
This week’s new moon on the 6th falls in your shared resources sector and it’s an occasion to celebrate a successful endeavor with your partner. Whether you’ve picked your wedding venue, launched a product line or just successfully lived together for a year without major conflict, pop a bottle of bubbly for the occasion! This is only the first accomplishment of many to come.
This week’s mantra: A win is a win.
