The week starts off with a fraught Full Moon in Aries on October 20 that brings major changes to our lives. Mars, who’s in Libra, squares off with Pluto, who’s in Capricorn, on October 22. This powerful astrological aspect will create power struggles and drama with others. The Sun moves into Scorpio on October 23, allowing everyone to dive deep within themselves and evolve over the next 30 days. Venus, who’s in Sagittarius, and Neptune, who’s retrograde in Pisces, square off on October 26. Dreaminess, exhaustion, sensitivity, and paranoia in love will exist as a result.
We live in a material world, which is a sentiment that’s consuming your energies. When the Sun shifts into Scorpio on October 23, the focus will be on how you can use your power and status to attain your goals. Rather than fixate on how to rule the world, use the planetary alignments to implement change within yourself and the world. Being influential doesn’t mean having money and being bossy, it means having the ability to make changes that can benefit everyone — not just you.
It’s always good to check in on existing contracts that are in the works. Call your friends and arrange for a friendly get together when the Sun glides into Scorpio on October 23. Suggest an activity like a yoga class or lunch date a few miles out of town to connect with your pals. Use this time to discuss everything that’s been going on and share details of your life. Let those who are close to you into your world and feel your love.
Slowing down isn’t in your nature, but it will allow you to stay what you mean when you feel it, instead of impulsively stating unverified facts that can hurt others. Also, it gives you the chance to make the best decisions possible (that is if you choose to analyze the situations thoroughly). By the end of the week, you will have the opportunity to contemplate your next moves and think before you take action in pursuing your goals. This will secure a victorious triumph for you.
Scorpio season awakens your tender heart from its temporary slumber. The moment the Sun glides into Scorpio on October 23 is when you’ll begin to feel the intense emotional shift that heightens your sentimental vibes. You’ll want to take risks in putting your feelings out in the open and expressing your desires to others. Don’t be afraid to seek the love that you deserve this month. Rather than being lost in a dream, try to find the emotions and frequency that aligns with your vibe.
Your personal life is heating up. Being the vivacious lion that you are, it won’t go unnoticed. When the Sun moves into Scorpio on October 23, you’ll begin to implement extra self-care into your regular routine. This means taking more cat naps throughout the day, disconnecting from the drama, and adorning your claws with beautiful nail art. Boundaries are the only thing that’s getting in the way of having peace of mind. Double up on protecting your energetic realm by setting important and necessary limits.
The problem with not letting your mind rest and disengaging from obstacles that present themselves is that you are focusing too much on things that aren’t important. These are only minor obstacles. Allot yourself the chance to see the bigger picture. Don’t overthink matters too much and set yourself up for self-sabotage. Stop analyzing everything and everyone, Virgo. The moment you gain a distant perspective, the easier it will be to see situations with a clearer lenses. Consider this before becoming stressed or upset.
Use this week’s cosmic shifts to attain your aspirations — you know, the ones that you had in your youth that have been put on the back burner for years. This will lead you towards personal fulfillment and happiness because you are living out your dreams (minus the minor detour that you took for a minute). The more you connect with the visions that you wanted years ago and the person you believed you could be, the sweeter it will be when they come your way.
When you get a sense of a situation, you rarely debate your sentiments and trust your gut instincts. That is, until now. You’re starting to second guess yourself. This will lead you to investigate matters thoroughly to get to the bottom of the matter. It’s not that you’re unwilling to believe what is being shown to you, it’s more that you don’t want to. You’d rather believe in the dream — even though it’s not real, as the truth will prove to be stranger than fiction.
This week gives you the opportunity to restart your cash flow and discuss your spending habits with a confidant. This will give you the chance to set realistic financial goals and live nicely on the allotted budget in order to have extra money to spend on the upcoming seasonal holidays. When you go shopping for presents, purchase meaningful and sentimental gifts that will lift the spirits of those you’re giving it to. The cost doesn’t matter as long as it’s from the heart.
I Committing to a cause that you believe in well value to feel as though you are helping others, making headway in their personal aspirations, and fulfilling a part of your self that has felt empty. Use this week as a chance to align with organizations or projects that speak to your heart. Doing so will make you feel good so you are a part of a bigger picture that helps others heal, grow, change, and be the best version of themselves.
You’re finally making headway with your boss, peers, and family members by getting the positive praise and feedback that you have wanted to hear for the past few months. The caveat is that you are finding that all that glitters isn’t necessarily gold when it comes to your goals, objectives, and relationships (mostly because you are longing to focus more on your personal life at the moment) which is why you will be reassessing and reflecting on your plans for the future.
The Sun’s ingress into Scorpio calls for you to investigate life’s mysteries — particularly situations that are affecting your relationships. You can’t easily let matters go, that is until you’ve found answers that resonate with your line of thinking. What you find out may be disheartening, resulting in tensions rising with others. Before you take the argument to the next level, ask yourself if the punishment fits the crime? If not, you may opt to forgive and forget.
