Your Weekly Horoscopes: October 9 to 15, 2022

So much is happening this week! We start things off with a bang—aka a full moon in Aries on the 9th. Full moons are times of climax and release, and this one has big “shoot your shot” energy. “Just do it” is the mantra. (Public figures born on a full moon in Aries include firestarters like Cardi B, Vice President Kamala Harris and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke). It’s scary to speak up, but the results could be healing. The sun and Venus in Libra both make a supportive connection to Saturn in Aquarius (exact on the 11th and 14th), hinting that what seems overwhelming now will be grounding in the long-term.

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

Though it seems antithetical, you’ll be most productive if you take some time off this week, Taurus. The full moon in Aries lights up your unconscious sector, and more than most, you’re going to be feeling the exhaustion and overwhelm that comes during this active time of the month. The party invitations are rolling in, but you’re better off binging Halloween movies on the couch. Don’t beat yourself up for not checking everything off your to do list. There’s always more time.

This week’s mantra: “Slow.”

It feels good to show up for others and also make your own dreams come true! Then, as your ruling planet Mercury re-enters Libra on the 10th, you return to a fling or creative project that you left behind back in September. This time, you’re ready to see it through.

This week’s mantra: “Flirt.”

The full moon in Aries on the 9th lights up your travel and higher learning sector and you spend a lot of this week daydreaming about running away.

As the sun connects with Saturn on the 11th though, you finally get some much needed support from your partner or BFF.

Though you’re usually one to keep your cool, you can’t help but let the emotions pour out of you at the full moon in Aries on the 9th. This week’s therapy session is extra cathartic and the coffee date with your best friend is extra juicy. Plus, you and your partner are finally able to get on the same page about a financial issue you’ve been tiptoeing around for months. As your ruling planet Mercury glides back into Libra on the 10th, it’s the perfect time to get clear about what you really value.

This week’s mantra: “Release.”

The full moon in Aries on the 9th is an ideal time for you to renew your gym membership, return to half marathon training, or at least get back to some morning stretches. The full moon falls in the part of your chart that’s all about maintenance and the daily grind. If you have your fitness on lock, this lunation may end up being more about getting back into a consistent workflow. Make sure you’re scheduling as much time for rest as you are for responsibility.
