This week brings mixed cosmic energies our way — all of which will require patience and compassion for ourselves and others in order to get by unscathed. Mercury, who’s in Scorpio, opposes Uranus, who’s retrograde in Taurus, on October 7th. This aspect will keep our minds agile and energized throughout the week. Mars, who’s retrograde in Aries, squares off with Pluto, who’s in Capricorn, on October 9th. The need for evolution is strong and attainable if we move towards greatness with integrity and honor. Mars retrograde galvanizes the Nodes of Destiny on October 10th, making it a fine day to attain the desires manifested on the 9th. Venus, who’s in Virgo, connects with Uranus retrograde on the 10th, adding originality to how we express our sentiments to others and what we want to invest our money in. The Libra Sun and Jupiter, who’s in Capricorn, collide on October 11th, heightening our optimism and zest for life. The following day, Mercury and Venus deepen our feel good vibes. However, the lovely energy of the week changes on October 13th when the Sun and Mars retrograde oppose each other. This astrological aspect will make us all second guess our ventures and confidence. Mercury retrograde officially commences on October 13th and lasts until November 3rd (Election Day!) in Scorpio, bringing secrets and scandals to light. 


This week, you’re feeling as though your friends and family aren’t giving you enough attention or affection. Before you choose to ignore the matter, think about whether or not this is the best way to proceed. Being passive aggressive may not be the answer to your emotional quandary, as it will create more internal issues for you having not expressed your feelings. If you wish to speak out, be clear and concise with your words. 


You’re in the mood to warm up on the couch and relax, rather than galavanting around town. Cozy season is finally here and it’s the ultimate time for you to hunker down and decompress. This is also the perfect moment in the season for you to bond and receive extra TLC from your friends. Reach out and connect with those you are close with to deepen your relationship from the chill comforts of your home. 


Stop stressing the small stuff (even though it’s the majority of your worries). Instead of worrying about what everyone else is up to everyday, focus more on your life. The moment you stop fixating on others, you’ll see your whole world open up for the better. Changing your outlook on matters will offset your vibe. It’ll turn you into a more optimistic person and allow you to have a better and loving relationship with yourself. 


Your self-esteem has been at a low these past few weeks. This week, you’re paying attention to the effect your lack of confidence has had on yourself. The caveat is that you’re unsure of what steps to take to receive continued confidence. If you can, look at your reflection in a mirror and stand in your power. Saying positive affirmations everyday  will have you not just seeing — but, fully believing in your innate fabulousness. 


It’s time for you to wake up from your daydreams and step outside into the world. Jump into a bunch of leaves, stand under the autumnal sun, and decorate your home with seasonal flair. Enjoy all the calm energy that this week offers you. Most importantly, engage in a hobby that allows you to connect with yourself. These activities will help you find balance in your life, which is exactly what you need right now. 


Setting boundaries is challenging for everyone and anyone who cares about what their friends think or feel about them. However, the time has come for you to ensure that your friends and lovers know their limits with you. Don’t be afraid to cut out those who are not respecting your space and time. This emotional tactic will come in handy midweek, when you have to stand your ground with someone who’s pushing limits with you. 


There’s been a lot of drama in your posse recently. But, for the sake of getting along and being in agreement with others, you are all willing to squash the issues, shake paws, and move away from the unpleasantries. Before you walk away from an argument, make sure you’re heard loud and clear and that your feelings are acknowledged by them. If not, then the same issues can arise again in the upcoming weeks ahead. 


It’s never too late to do the right thing, even if that defies your prideful demeanor. If you’ve had problems with a friend, colleague, or family member in the past weeks, it’s time for you to make amends with them or at least hear them out. Do not turn your back away from them without listening to what they have to say. You may even decide to move on and let go of the situation. 


A lot of times you put your foot in your mouth and it creates messiness with those you care about. In fact, you find yourself often backpedaling your way out of drama as a result. Think matters through before stating them to avoid conflict. You may accidentally share a big secret about a pal, which will render you as a gossip amongst your peers. Be careful of what you say and how you express it. 


A few members of your squad may turn out to be phony and not have your best interests at heart. Here is the absolute truth: You do not need to have that kind of negative energy in your life. Only connect with members of your social group who genuinely have your back in a catfight and who will never leave your side — no matter what. There is absolutely no room for fakeness in your life. 


If there is a special person for whom you have intimate feelings for, then you should let them know how you feel. If you choose to hold back your emotions, then you may find yourself feeling blue without their affections. Stop worrying about rejection. Odds are that they feel the same way about you and are wanting to level up your relationship with them. Be bold and take a chance when it comes to romance.


Being at peace with oneself is a lifelong process. However, this week you are making major strides towards evolving the relationship you have with yourself. No longer will you think negatively of your actions and life. You will start to see matters from a clearer and more positive perspective — including yourself. This will help you bring amazing things such as amazing friendships and allow you to have a richer relationship with yourself. You got this!
