Weekly Horoscopes: October 21-27, 2019
Scorpio Season Begins
The long-awaited time is here—Scorpio season. The Scorpio archetype is about digging deeply into our own unconscious motivations and bringing to full awareness the places where our own pain is causing harm to ourselves and others. Everything that has yet to be healed will cause more pain until it is balanced by compassion and understanding. The places where you have unresolved trauma are the ones that motivate you towards actions that are not aligned with your best expression of self.
We will be working towards resolution within connection this week—intimate partnerships, friendships, and romantic connections will be the source of drama, as well as transformation. Don’t be afraid to step into the shadow of your own sense of self. It’s only through facing the pain that you can develop more light.

- October 25th, 2019: Venus sextile Pluto

You have a lot to gain from your ability to forge strong and supportive connections starting this week, Aries. We start off the week with Venus trine Neptune on October 21st,which for you will bring to the forefront your spiritual inspiration as a source of transformation now. If you’ve been grinding at the yoga class, meditation, or self-help series and have reached a plateau, now may be a time where you gain some insight that will finally push you along to a deeper practice.
The Sun enters Scorpio on October 23rd, setting us up for the New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th—the focus is on your agency and power within connections. Even though you are a pioneer and adventurer who is used to doing things alone, you’ll benefit greatly from building a project with a partner—someone who can bring the structure, longevity, and resources you need to really get things going.
Smooth over any conflicts with loved ones on the day leading up to this New Moon—and watch out for Venus sextile Pluto on October 25th. Now is the time to make amends and realize that all your ideas and inspiration do not exist in a vacuum—you need people to help you push your ideas further. The key is to figure out which connections to tap into in order to grow.
I see that you may be dealing with a lot of tricky negotiations this week, Taurus, as we head into the New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th with plenty of contact to your ruling planet, Venus. You might feel drawn to the allure of the social scene or networking crowd in an effort to find the inspiration you’ve been craving in your own personal connections.
This doesn’t mean there’s anything at fault with the relationships you have already established, just simply that no one person can satisfy all your needs. Look to connecting with friends and community this week in order to feel refreshed and vibrant—especially on October 21st when Venus is trine Neptune, and October 25th, when Venus makes a sextile to Pluto. These will be especially potent days for making new and vibrant connections.
The days leading up to the New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th may bring about some refinement or re-negotiations in contracts with beaus, business partners, and collaborators. You want to start a new practice, take a class, or try on a new way of doing things, and you may have to negotiate with people who depend on you and who may be affected by these changes. Don’t worry, this is all par for the course. Plan accordingly, and remember not to overcommit. When trying to go in a new direction, you have to let go of certain things in order to make space for the new.
You’re really not trying to take too much on this week, Gemini, as it will be very clear that you have so many balls rolling in so many courts that a break is necessary in order to re-tune.
Take this week to revitalize your work schedule and routine, making sure that you have ample time to get everything done and still have energy for fun and rewarding connection. There are two days this week that are excellent for you to take a break and recharge, October 21stand October 25th. I would especially plan for a spa day on October 25th, when someone might come for you with some emotional work that needs to be done. You might want to have plans that day so you can sit on whatever is coming up and figure out the best way to manage.
The New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th will bring a chance for you to re-do your daily schedule. Are you feeling overwhelmed by the lack of time or space to rest in your life? Are you overcommitted in many areas and are therefore feeling like you’re not performing well anywhere? Take this week to sit on it and figure out a better way to proceed. Think about what your ideal schedule would be, and then start planning accordingly on or right after the New Moon.
Ah, fun, enjoyment, romance, and pleasure: remember those? You will this week as we head towards a Full Moon in Scorpio on October 27th, which hits your 5th house of creative expression. You have Venus touring your 5th house as well, and making connections with a dreamy Neptune on October 21st, and an intense Pluto on October 25th. What a week for romance!
If you’re looking for a new connection, this will easily be the best week to meet someone this month. You’ll do best by not trying too hard: you don’t need to push for what you want. Instead, see what comes for you. You won’t be disappointed. This is the time to embrace new connections and dive deeper into the existing ones—you’ll definitely be feeling romantic and playful, no matter what your status. Make sure that those in your sights feel some of that soft and subtle charm.
The New Moon on October 27th can bring renewal to your existing romantic connections, and the best Moon of the year for new interests, but I honestly think we would do best by having you focus on your own heart center. Do you always need to feel the love and approval of those around you in order to feel worthy? Take this Moon to renew vows to your own sense of self. Write down what you truly value and love about your own being, and then make a commitment to supporting and expanding the most important relationship in your life—the one you have with yourself.
Now comes the time to relax and rejuvenate, as the New Moon at the end of this week on October 27th will ask of you to focus your energy into creating a peaceful and stable home environment.
The days leading up to the New Moon will be full of reminders that the relationships you have at home and with family are the most fulfilling now. Whether your family is given, chosen, or inherited, you’re going to be spending more time with them now and leaning on them for strength and support. You need mutual reciprocity, care, and comfort during this time, and should look to those closest to you to receive it. The days of October 21st and October 23rd will be enlightening for you as to who you choose to lean into during this emotional time.
On the New Moon on October 27th, make an intention to reconnect with your heritage, lineage, and source of ancestral power. You are powerfully engaged now, and reconnecting with sources of strength in your life will prove healing now. Our goal in this New Moon is to engage your source of strength and resilience: your connection to home.
Your energetic reciprocation really takes a divine sense of inspiration this week, as you have ample energy, optimism, and insight in your daily activities. Venus trine Neptune onOctober 21st may bring a new connection your way—someone who will show you a different approach to an old problem. October 23rd sees Venus sextile Pluto, bringing creativity and release into what can otherwise be a week full of routine and daily practice.
You should embrace whatever moves you this week and allow some insight to take shape and manifest as a new approach to daily life during this time. Perhaps something you are reading, a class you are taking, or a new friend you made during this time will really inspire you this week.
Take that inspiration and ground it into a new practice on the New Moon in Scorpio, on October 27th. You are able to make some real gains in self-understanding and self-compassion during this time by witnessing how your connections can really inspire self-development now.
Alright, this is the week that we focus on your finances and make sure you’re not spending more than you can adequately cover now. Even though you have big plans for your future that need some investment in this moment, the belt has got to be buckled to ensure you don’t overcommit your funds and end up with your hands tied later.
Watch out for the days of October 21st and October 23rd for overindulgence and overspending. Both these days will offer opportunities for you to cast your energy, time, and resources into what may look like promising enterprises or necessary items for your home environment—both of which are probably not what they seem.
Hold onto your resources until October 27th, when the New Moon in Scorpio will bring to light any small but very important details that weren’t shared earlier. Perhaps a bill you didn’t see coming will magically appear on this date, or you’ll have to renegotiate a contract—you don’t want to be empty handed on this date. A new plan should be set in motion now regarding how you’re going to be spending any extra income in order to set yourself up well at home and in your business. Be cautious but trust your instinct.
Venus trines Neptune on October 21st and this marks the beginning of a beautiful week for you, ending with a powerful New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th.
Whatever mishaps and struggles were present last week will be finessed and smoothed out this week, especially on some really key dates for you—October 21st and October 23rd. Venus in your first house is making beneficial connections to both Neptune and Pluto on these days, so you feel powerfully engaged, creative, and ready to work through any small problems that may arise during this time in regards to your plans.
Make sure to lean into your charm and develop more patience for those who are having trouble keeping up with your grand design—you want to convince people to support you, not alienate them with your indifference.
The New Moon on October 27th will offer you the opportunity to set a plan in place for your spiritual relationship to communication now. If you trust that you have the ability to take care of yourself and protect your energy no matter what the circumstance, then it’s a good time to think about how to open the channels of communication in order to have some difficult conversations you’ve been keeping on the back burner.
You’ll be slowing down after October 21st, when Venus trines Neptune in your 4th house. This is the time to take a step back, take a breather, and focus on how you’re feeling in your body. If there are anxieties coming up now about your home, your family, and your security and stability, find a way to accept that you don’t and can’t know the future.
All you can do is focus on how strong and resilient you have become in the last year, which will be especially apparent on October 23rd, when Venus sextiles Scorpio and a situation that may have caused you to lose your cool before now seems simple and easy to deal with.
Focus on that strength and integrity of character as we move into the New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th, for you a time to contemplate and review your past year. We are getting ready for your birthday season soon, and this is the last New Moon before that time. What would you like to let go of through service or practice? How can you make peace with certain memories that still haunt your subconscious?
You really want to reconnect now, especially after the focus on grinding at work and adjusting to so many shifts in your personal life.
The Venus trine Neptune transit on October 21st can bring about a new and very fortuitous connection simply by sharing what your interests and passions are. You may be in a new place, either emotionally or physically, and need new connections in order to feel like yourself again. October 21st and 23rd will be great days for feeling validated and accepted by the people around you, so remember that while you are also driven, ambitious, and strong, you are also funny, goofy, and such a sweet source of support for others. Lean into the softer side now.
The New Moon on October 27th can bring about some real change in your social scene as well as your own vision for how your work fits into the larger human community around you. You are not just working on projects in the solitary confinement of your office, your work has real world implications for those around you, and this will feel especially present on this New Moon.
Endeavor to recreate your own image in alignment with how you would like to give your energy back to those you love and support. How can you better align yourself with that sweet and soft Capricorn while you move through the important work you’re accomplishing now?
You’ll be very aware of your job performance, personal appeal, and popularity now, as the charm is turned on at work and you strive to live up to your own expectations for your output.
Remember to keep a realistic idea of what you can accomplish during this time and the amount of time and dedication it takes to get to where you’d like to be. Watch out for October 23rd, when Venus sextile Pluto may make you especially critical of your own work ethic and performance. What you’re looking for is a sense of worthiness in your work, which can ultimately only come from your own approval.
What standards do you want to set for yourself so that you feel confident about your performance? The time to take control of your own sense of self-worth comes on October 27th, with the New Moon in Scorpio.
Now is the time to define what you think is valuable, what you think is important, and how you want to integrate those values into your daily work. Don’t give your power away by letting others define this for you. Make sure you set your own guidelines now.
Restless energy abounds as Venus trines Neptune on October 21st, igniting a desire for something new, something exciting, and something different. Things may have started to feel monotonous lately, and the only cure for it is to push yourself a little further into something or someone you’ve been curiously eyeing.
Now will be the time to integrate a new skill into your practice, take a development course, or go on a short trip to meet a new teacher or guide. An out of town conference or training would suit your mood and will enliven your spirit, especially if it is scheduled around October 23rd, when Venus is sextile Pluto.
Take this igniting energy and turn it into something fruitful on the New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th. You can share your insights into your own emotional practice in the form of a healing modality, ability to listen, or offering of support to someone who is in need now.
