Horoscopes return this week to bring you guidance once more with thanks owed to Black Queen’s Rook. Hopefully his reading of the stars is brighter than this week’s weather forecast.
LIBRA (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Jupiter is wrapping up its visit with Libra this week, and won’t be back for another twelve years. But while it’s here, you should give some serious thought to what you want to do with the rest of your life. It’s a question that you’ll probably answer with more questions, but a worthwhile inquiry nonetheless. There’s still some time for some Libras to go through through life-changing events this week. After the 10th, however, Jupiter is moving on, and it’s time for some much needed rest. Sneak in some naps between classes, or do your homework with a group rather than soloing it. Cliche as it may sound, self-love is the essential ingredient to happiness now.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Sneaky Scorpio will be stealing Jupiter from Libra on the 10th, and the good luck that goes with it. It’s as though you’ve finally managed that lumos you’ve been trying to cast on your life. Before Jupiter lights things up for you, solitude and support may be needed, and even once you have it, you might not want to dive head-first into anything new just yet. Instead set a goal for where you’d like to be by spring. Done with anxiety attacks? Ready to be the best Seeker you can be? Now’s the time to start working at what you want.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You deserve to be free and unencumbered by drama, but it just isn’t always possible. This week may bring some chaotic action your way, so get ready to cope. You are not meant to throw in the towel or pick a fight, no matter how tempting either of those things may be. Invest in your relationships by not participating when you feel too crazy to do it in a healthy way. But don’t ghost people either; clearly communicate what you can or can’t offer until you can show all the way up. If you’re into divintinations, now’s the best time for you to make some readings.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
If you try to pull passive-aggressive stuff on people this week, it will backfire brilliantly, Capricorn. You are being called to balance the truth with diplomacy in a way that neither waters it down nor alienates the person you’re dealing with. This isn’t easy, but it isn’t complicated either. Don’t blame others for what you choose to participate in, no matter how tempted you are or how blameworthy they seem. Pick your fights wisely, and don’t stress about the stars messing up your day for this week, because they’ll be waiting until next week to do that.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Like everyone else, you’ll be feeling the changes brought on by Jupiter’s move this week, focus going from short-term goals, to long-term goals. A leadership role might be yours for the taking this week. Even if you don’t fancy yourself the leader type, you may receive an opportunity too good to pass up. Consider the options before deciding they’re not for you, as you might enjoy the new responsibilities. Aside from Jupiter’s influence, the recent full moon urges you to indulge your desire to hang out with your friends more. They may not choose to do your favorite things, but that won’t matter. Just being together means a lot now.
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It’s alright to be self-protective when you’re not sure what you need or where you stand. This week is going to bring up all the deep dark emotions, but there’s a dragon-sized reason why: it’s time to ask for help. Know who your allies are, and who you can turn to for support, and let them help a Pisces out. You’re on the path to success and about to break through some old limitations, and it will be so much sweeter if you have people close by to share it with. A favour done in the recent past may come back to your advantage now. You might need to do something on your own behalf to get this started, but a small effort should be enough.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s the best time for relationships for you, Aries. In October, the Sun takes a run through your sign, putting the emphasis on your closest ties all month. Get real about what you want because what you’ve been telling yourself is not quite cutting it. Romantically, this could be the time to ask out that person you fancy, or if you’re already dating, to do something you’ve been wanting to for a while. Make a choice, and commit to a course of action because it feels really right for you and not just because you’re scared of the alternative. Just watch out as the Sun locks into dicey angles with Pluto this week, which could bring clashes with professors, parents, or even prefects. Instead of losing house points, pause and do your best to compromise.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Here’s to the proper start of autumn! This week starts with the Sun visiting Libra and working you into organisation mode. You’re on a mission to get all the moving parts of your life humming along like one of those clicky vrooming things that muggles have. I love those things. This is an excellent time for deep self-help work, writing in your Dear Diary, or simply hashing things out with a friend. It might go nowhere, but it might go far. If you want to kick a bad habit or start a daily exercise routine, this is also a great time. You’ve gone through it, Taurus, but you kinda needed to in order to get your thoughts in order. Just make sure that your compromises aren’t compromising you.
GEMINI (May 21 – Jun 20)
Temperatures may be falling outside, but the heat is on for you! The first three weeks of October mark the Sun’s yearly visit to Libra and you’re in full-on Gemini mode as you flirt, fire off witty comments and are at the center of every party. Your unfiltered self-expression can win you fans, as long as you keep it positive. (Yes, Gemini, there is such a thing as bad fame, and you don’t want to find that out the hard way.) Romance could be in the stars during this solar cycle as well. Dress up and turn some heads, or plan a few dates. Coupled or single, this is your time to let loose and you could easily wind up with a few new admirers. If you fancy someone, let them know. You’ve got this!
CANCER (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
If you don’t know what you want from life, this is your time to connect the dots and figure it out. This week will bring you bolts of inspiration, but it’s on you to take some risks and act on your insights. When people and situations upset you, your best move is to consider what your reaction says about you, first and foremost. Don’t let your fears prevent you from growing as a person. The only true failure for you to avoid is the failure to learn and grow from your experiences. This week you could be inspired to decorate, redecorate, spend more time with friends or family, or even do more with your own house.
LEO (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
This week you’ve got something to say, and it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. You can talk a big game, but when push comes to shove, what do you really do? Now’s the time to back up your attitude with real honesty or to change it altogether. Both of these options take courage, which you have plenty of, you just need to decide that you’re willing to use it. Don’t jump to conclusions this week, however. Even if it seems like you have all the information, you probably don’t. Take into account what could really be going on that you don’t know about.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You’re ready, Virgo. You’ve been struggling to get to the place where you can move on, and this is it. Instead of asking others to change, you’re ready to be the change you need to see in your life. This doesn’t mean you have to remain in subpar situations, however, because you’re ready to accept things as they really are and act based on that wisdom. You can make lemon drops out of your lemons if you want, or you can leave the whole sour mess behind and seek other fruit. Like pumpkins. Pumpkins are fruit, and the choice was always yours. Talk to people you normally wouldn’t. Join clubs, attend parties, and perfect your social skills. Opening up will go a long way in increasing your enjoyment of life!
