Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
|Mercury stations direct on Friday October 9, 2015|
The desire to change your life this week is emphasized right away when the Sun and Pluto are in tension on Tuesday. Ultimately what we need is the real truth to transform our lives. Whatever it is that you personally have as a goal in life, can you respect yourself, be true to yourself and act on honor your morals to get there? Have you ever had to compromise yourself or go against your higher truth to get what you want? Now is the time to push yourself to shine true to yourself and weigh the consequences of being noble or not. Do you believe it possible for you to be totally authentic to achieve your aims in life, or do you believe you have to compete and step on others to get there, or lose your self-respect according to what someone else wants from you? Now it’s time to get real with yourself and making the choices and changes that you really want that are aligned with your heart, truth, fairness and honesty.
Mercury retrograde is now reaching out harmoniously with Saturn on Tuesday as well. This signifies looking back to our past to consider what realistically worked and what didn’t. When were you at your most authentic, and didn’t have to compromise your personal compass of right and wrong? You can use your backstory as a guide to help you make better choices now.
Just because Mercury is retrograde and there can be a lack of information, it doesn’t mean life stops. Decisions still need to be made, but you should take extra care and time now before you act on them. The more you work with a Mercury retrograde, and learn your own tricks to navigate the retrograde cycle, the easier it gets to know what works for you best and what doesn’t. Mercury retrograde encourages us to ask more questions.
Mars and Neptune are also activated on Tuesday as they stand across the sky from one another. This further emphasizes that we should take a little time before we take action. It can be like going into battle in the fog, where you need to perk up your senses that much more, listen more and be extra cautious. This isn’t the time to make a quick decision and charge full steam ahead, even though you may be tempted to. Strategy is important to consider before you step forward. The drive is there but you’ll have to slow yourself down intentionally so you can maneuver best. If it’s foggy out for real in your area, take extra precautions while driving.
Venus and the Moon both enter Virgo on Thursday. That makes it 4 planets in Virgo now with Jupiter, Mars, Venus and the Moon getting cozy. It can be pleasing for relationships, with attractions and the need for closeness being turned up. It can be a great time to overcome self-critical thinking by letting your senses take over from any negative thinking patterns you may have. It would be a great day for a couples massage or retreat.
There is more patience needed in relationships now. Bonds strengthen over time. A nice romantic dinner can be a great way to bond and heighten your senses with scents and flavors. This is the perfect time for comfort food like pasta, matched with the perfect wine. Conversations about the meaning of life with music in the background, toasting your glasses under a crescent moon is ideal.
And for everyday routines, this is a great time to consider what you’re really most passionate about. What do you dream about doing? The energy and desire to create a new lifestyle is strong now. This is also a great time for becoming more embodied, where your mind and body can feel more connected. Simply trying a few yoga poses can be great for you to examine your stamina, your breathing and listening to how your body feels in the moment as you pay closer attention to the sensations that come up. It’s the little changes that you make in your day to day life that add up to something big.
On Friday, Mercury finally stations direct at 10:57 a.m. ET. What relief! Over the next 3 weeks, Mercury will bring back memories of what’s been happening recently over the past few weeks. We’ll be able to get the last hints and lessons in the errors that came up. Technology issues and miscommunications should slowly start to find resolution as you gear yourself up to be in the clear in a few weeks.
This is a great time to ask yourself, “What really is my destiny?” and take a realistic look at how you’ve been holding yourself back. Have you been procrastinating for days, weeks, months, or even years on something that you really feel like you should be focusing on? The only one who can live out yourself destiny is yourself, so take some time to think about how you can change your habits so you can be more effective in your life to navigating towards your destiny. Facing the truth of how you’ve held yourself back can be the ticket to your greatest change to move forward.
Venus now in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius on Friday. This can play out in relationships of course, and signifies having challenging moments that can help you turn away from criticism and doubt and turn towards love instead. One of the things I notice most often is that people get so caught up in their day to day activities that they forget about the value of the one they are with. Time together should be honored at a much higher level of attention, because life truly is short. If the one you love suddenly went away forever, would you regret not being more loving, more kind, more connected? Turn towards love while you have the chance. Honor your life and the life of those you love.
This also points to our everyday lives, in how we are using our time wisely. Are you really using your days to do things you love? Are you putting love into the things you do each day? What is your relationship to time? This is when we take a look at our lives from an adult perspective knowing that it doesn’t last forever and life needs you to bring love into the world. It’s also a good idea to get real about what you want and why you want it.
Jupiter and Pluto are trine in harmony on Sunday. These are slow movers, so it’s not like all of the sudden life is going to change dramatically right on Saturday (although it could for some). But, the symbol better represents that the big changes happen over time. This is about having that big idea that you are excited about working towards and changing the way you think and feel as you grow into the transformation. Self-help books, inspiration and motivation as part of your daily routine will help you create a plan that not only works, but one you can get really excited about. Jupiter being in Virgo this year is so great for business plans. This can be the start of some truly amazing changes in your life. Focusing on feeling hopeful and abundant every day will help you reach the top of the mountain.
The Sun and Uranus stand across the sky from one another on Sunday as well. The feeling of renewal and accessing a sense of greater freedom can motivate us to take action. You can light up your life with smart choices. This is when you can shine as a leader. Stand up and be a pioneer in your own life. If you’re thinking of starting your own business, this would be a great time to visit entrepreneur websites to give you inspiration. This is when you consider how you identify with your personal power and own it. This is when you find the courage to be true to yourself and your heart no matter what. You have the power to find your personal freedom and shine in your truth.
This week we all get a chance to change directions and it starts with how we think.
I hope you all have a wonderful, abundant week. Thank you for reading and sharing. I am so grateful for being a part of your routine. Enjoy the Horoscopes for each sign below. Namaste.

Weekly Astro-Tarot Horoscopes for each Sign - Insights and Advice for October 5 to 11, 2015:
Aries: Be attentive to the road this week if you’re driving. Things may not be as they seem and objects may be closer than they appear. It is your daily routine that needs your attention now, and is only going to become more important as the month rolls on. It’s the small choices that make the difference. Have you read the book, “Don’t sweat the small stuff?” If you get hot under the collar over the smallest things, and are impatient, this is a good week to assess how valid your reactions may or may not be in the grand scheme of things. If your efforts are for the higher good this week you should be pleased with each step you make. Your big lesson is personal freedom and living true to yourself. Your relationships, and any twists in turns conversations take you, can help shine a light on how to get that much closer to feeling free to be yourself.
Taurus: Love is meant to bring joy to life. This week, Venus enters Virgo. This is a great time to replace critical thoughts with more loving ones, especially in your relationships to other people. Nobody wants to be judged. You can soften any stance this week with a touch of love. A weeknight movie date could be great for you, especially a high energy, action packed movie. It’s a great time to feel revitalized by life. With Mercury going direct this week too, you should find your plans and ideas start to slowly make more sense. Figuring out ways to give yourself balance between work-time and me-time so you feel like you have more freedom is good for you this week.
Gemini: You like information more than just about anybody, and having Mercury retrograde the last few weeks could have certainly frazzled many Geminis. But, if you’ve learned from past Mercury retrogrades, you know just what to expect and can weather the hiccups. Well, this week we have good news that Mercury will station direct. In a few weeks you’ll be feeling back to normal. For now, try to enjoy your creative side. When Mercury is doing his retro-dance, it helps you access your right brained creativity more easily. Vintage and retro movies and music can be the ticket to you accessing the most interesting, poetic ideas. Have fun with it. Honoring your time with others, especially wandering down memory lane, is healthy for your relationships now. Stories from elders can be particularly interesting, giving you ideas you never would have considered otherwise. The more you are open to listening to others, the more ideas you’ll have to draw from.
Cancer: Your need for personal freedom starts off your week. It is being true to yourself that matters most. Communication from your heart becomes a priority this week as part of your path to freedom. It is when you are passionate about something and find meaning in what you have to share that you feel most together and on-the-ball this week. Though Mercury is retrograde, you have wit, intelligence and charm with you that others may lack. When Mercury goes direct later in the week, you’ll really start to feel like what you have to share is picking up the pace. Feeling comfortable with yourself is essential for you to converse with others best. You have the ability to turn any conversation around this week, particularly when you speak from your heart. You can turn any argument, especially with family, into an opportunity for greater peace later in the week.
Leo: Venus was retrograde in your sign for months this summer. Now she’s direct and going to leave your sign for many months to come. But, as she travels forward holding so much energy gained from being in your sign, there will be a strong connection to her for quite some time. She enters your money making sector which is great news for you because she loves money. If you can put your energy towards what you love, it should return financial rewards. When your heart is in the venture, you can turn lead into gold. Communications is also highly important for you this week. Early in the week is an excellent time for you to let go of thinking patterns that aren’t serving you and replace them with better patterns later in the week as a way of transforming your life. What your mind is lit up with matters, and affects your day to day energy levels and actions. This is the week to admit what isn’t working so you can change your habits for the better.
Virgo: When Venus enters your sign this week it will start to become much more apparent that you are loved and blessed. You already have Jupiter in your sign, and Mars as well. This is when you take an assessment of yourself and honestly gauge just how much you love yourself and how worth you are to receive. Do you feel like you deserve the very best? Do you feel like you’re energized and ready to take action on your own behalf to create the life you want? Once Mercury goes direct on Friday I would suggest you do a self-assessment tool to help you get clear on what your core values and desires are. Once you know those better, you can then create a fantastic plan for your life. Think big and don’t hold back. You can manifest great things. Money matters could have a reality check this week that prompts you to alter your spending habits, especially on anything frivolous. Focus on your goals and you’ll become more fortunate.
Libra: You have a lot going on in your sign right now and the North Node is speaking volumes about how you’ve got to make sure you are self aware and aligned with your higher calling. Since this is your birthday season, it’s the perfect time to turn over a new leaf. Mercury will be going direct in your sign on Friday asking you to switch gears and shift how you think. It’s a great time to flip through some motivating literature that reminds you of just how awesome you really are. You’ve got a lot of potential, but more than that your gift of bringing diplomacy, peace and fairness to those around you is very much needed. The world needs what you naturally have to offer, so share that gift and watch it multiply. A higher vibration of love is entering your life. This is spiritual, heart chakra love merged with higher consciousness. It may sound fluffy to some, but the higher your vibration and the more connected your heart is to spirit, the more magical your life will become.
Scorpio: The way you think is going through a transformation that will last for many more years. How you interact with others reveals how your mind works. Now, there is a much higher, spiritualized perspective that is entering your life. It is when you release what you held onto in the past, that you are able to have incredible breakthroughs. Mercury going direct later this week will help you bring more clarity of thought forward. It can be tough to deal with what’s been pushed under the rug, but once the light hits it, the dust that has lingered long enough will be swept away and you’ll feel cleansed. Pluto direct now, helps make your transformations that much easier. It is in the baby steps where real progress is made. As the weeks progress, intelligent friends, acquaintances and role models will inspire you to keep blossoming. Those with vitality and warm hearts wake you up to a more spirited way of living, breathing and thinking.
Sagittarius: Friends from your past, or those who may conjure trips down memory lane can help you see where you’ve been and how time has changed you. Change is good. Everything is always changing. You may not feel like you’re using your time as wisely as you could now, and this is a great lesson for you. It is when Mercury switches gears later in the week that you realize that what others are doing, you can do too. Messages that are read between the lines will become more evident. Let your peers and role models inspire you to use the time you have in life well. Living true to yourself and releasing fears and inhibitions is a long process for just about everyone. Most people hold themselves back in one way or another. When you’re on the edge of your comfort zone, that is when real progress is made. So, take some time to be honest about how you’ve held yourself back and make a plan to reach your goals. There is much energy and passion in career and goal related matters now. Use that energy to honor what you want and to attract more abundance into your life.
Capricorn: Your higher aims in life are lit up now. They are challenging you to take the next step so you can change your life. Clarity in career will start to wake up later in the week when Mercury stations direct and will become even more noticeable next week. For now, pondering the possibilities in career is your best choice. If you’re looking for a job, fixing up your resume and exploring new formats is a wise use of time. In order for you to feel satisfied, you need to make sure that whatever career options or goals you set for yourself you are considering really do align with your personality. It makes no sense for you to be doing something day in and day out that doesn’t lift up your life. It’s important to feel confident and like you’re using your time well. Travel and learning could become much more important factors for you in the coming weeks. Even if the trip is only for a week, getting out there can change your view of the world and be a healthy experience for you. Choose somewhere that will energize your and uplift your heart.
Aquarius: Traveling, talking about traveling, pondering traveling, it’s all very good for you now. Seeing the world, and especially visiting places that allow you to feel free and true to yourself, makes a huge difference in how you perceive and experience life. Sunny locations are your best bet now. Money matters could be an issue for you, where you may need to rack up a bit of debt so you can do those things you want. You could have a nice infusion of cash this week from external sources, but more than that it’s when you make plans with smart financial choices that you really are able to feel free. With Mercury retrograde, mistakes in travel plans can arise, so expect the unexpected. It could be best for you to flip through travel magazines and websites instead as your starting point to inspire those warm, freeing feelings that are so healthy for you to experience now. Relationships can take on a more determined, emotional and passionate quality as the week progresses.
Pisces: You could be a little moody this week. Relationships take on more importance, whether they are romantic, platonic or business related. In love, passionate magnetism can certainly be lit up this week, but ultimately it’s about smart relationships that are meaningful that matter most now. There is much wisdom to be gained through all your relationships now. In business, you could find that the perfect pairing that compliments your vision shows up. Someone with smarts and know-how can turn your visions and dreams into reality. Mercury is having an influence now in career matters for you. If you have your own business be attentive to loans and debt. You may need the extra infusion of cash to find balance in your business. Wait until after Mercury goes direct later in the week if you need to sign anything. It’s a good time to assess if it’s worth borrowing. If your past experience shows that loans and repayment worked out well, then it could be a viable option. But if not, you may need to consider alternative options. Making smart money choices now, especially regarding taking on new debt or debt repayment should be taken seriously now.
