Weekly Horoscope: October 2–8, 2023

Mental Mercury (the thinking planet) in detailed, critical, rule-follower Virgo is the heavy planetary power player early in the week, starting with a strong opposition to Neptune (the cosmic problem-solver) in dreamy Pisces that gives you important balance between left and right brain thinking. Combining your vivid imagination and creativity with a healthy dose of practicality and logic is an unstoppable combo if you can avoid distractions.   

Tuesday brings a driven, earthy trine between focused Mercury and passionate Pluto (the evolutionary planet), setting you up for success on the job. You have your thoughts together and can present your ideas in a clear, articulate way that allows you to demonstrate what an asset you are to a current employer or could be to a potential one.  

Mercury’s last big move of the week happens on Wednesday when it makes the jump from rigid Virgo to airy Libra, giving you more flexibility, charm, and grace. Now that you can stop focusing on all the little things that might go wrong, you’re free to relax and enjoy the beauty around you. Life is good!

Sunday brings that critical Virgo energy back into your life, though, when Venus (the discerning goddess) pairs up with the observant Virgin and has you pointing out everyone’s little flaws. The best advice we can give you now is to worry about yourself. In case you haven’t noticed, people don’t like it when you mention their imperfections. 

Your Zodiac Sign’s Weekly Horoscope


You can’t help but be preoccupied with all the chores and responsibilities that are on your plate this week, but luckily, Aries, you also get to relax and chill a little later. You do best when you make a strong mind-body connection and work on improving your mental and physical health. If you feel good and strong, you can handle just about anything.

You have a strong urge to show what you’re capable of this week, Taurus, but there’s a time and place for that. If everyone else is relaxed and chill at a party, but you’re handing out business cards and trying to promote yourself, you’re not going to accomplish anything. Read the room. It’s more important to fit in this week than it is to try to force a situation into being something that it’s not. Your time will come.

You might feel a strong masculine influence on your life due to Mercury’s transits this week, Gemini, so just be aware. Depending on your early relationship with a father figure or male guardian/mentor, you may have some things to work through. Don’t underestimate the link between what’s going on now and what was going on then. It’s all connected.

Choose your words carefully this week, Cancer. Your mind is racing with brilliant plans, ideas, and concepts, but how you present them makes all the difference. Preplanning is instrumental to your success during Mercury’s fast-moving presence. Go over your notes thoroughly before an important meeting, and practice a presentation several times before you give it. And never let them see how nervous you are.

Financial security is important to you this week as you pursue opportunities that will make you wealthy (or wealthier). This is a good time to think about your values concerning money, including whether you rely on it to make you happy. There’s nothing wrong with a little retail therapy occasionally, but if you’re obsessed with having all the hottest trending stuff, Leo, you might have a problem.

It’s time to take a good long look in the mirror and think about the person staring back at you, Virgo. As your first house of identity and self gets a lot of attention this week, you’ll have the chance to really see yourself for who you are. If you like your reflection, great! Keep doing you. If you’d like to make some improvements, however, the universe fully supports you. Don’t underestimate your power in the world. One person can definitely make a difference.

Look for some things that have been hidden to get exposed early this week, Libra. As your twelfth house of the unconscious gets some extra attention, secrets are revealed, and those little feelings you’ve been having are proven correct. You’re very sensitive now, so loud noises, strong aromas, intense flavors, and vivid colors can be distracting and distressing. Get plenty of sleep.

Get detailed about your plans, Scorpio, and set some goals you can attain in the coming week. It feels good to have a purpose, and the detailed energy around you can help you fine-tune the facts and figures so that you have all the pertinent data you need to succeed. Technology is your bestie.

You’re very concerned about how people see you this week, Sagittarius, which is rather unlike you. If your public image has taken a hit lately, this is a good time to rebrand.

The world is yours to explore this week, Capricorn. Focusing less on work and putting more attention on adventure brings you balance that you haven’t had in a long time.

Is it time for a reset, Aquarius? Shifting and reshaping are possible this week as intense eighth-house energy surrounds you with its focused determination and urges you to make some long-lasting changes. Pay close attention to how money plays a role in your potential metamorphosis now, especially other people’s. Inheritances and loans can help make your dreams come true.

The main target of the week is your committed personal relationships, Pisces, so plan on dedicating a lot of your time to strengthening your bond with your boo, coworkers, or BFFs. Figuring out where your loyalties lie is your first priority, followed by finding logical, fair-minded solutions to outstanding relationship issues. Once you make a decision, stick with it. Don’t give someone hope when there isn’t any.
