This week's horoscopes: Week beginning 14th October

If it’s your birthday…

If you could make an astrologically-appropriate theme for the year ahead, this would be a good one; use the coming 12 months to decide who and what really matters to you, how hard you’re willing to work for your money and admit if you’re judging yourself too much on your income. It’s also a year to reconsider your own self-worth.

Last week brought the New Moon in your Love Zone and this week brings a lovely Venus
connection in your Intimacy Zone. Suffice to say, you have all the celestial set-up you need
to get to know someone much better, including your already-other half.

Also a good week for cash. And note that due to Venus’ rare retrograde, whatever comes up for you now in the intimacy department would be all about sorting out an old issue via conversation/communication.

As your planet Venus reverses through your Love Zone and connects with communicative
Mercury, it’s high time you asked yourself who and what really matters to you.

Think it through and then – crucially – see if you’re living your life in accordance with your values. And if not? Then change something! This is a rare chance for you to let someone who is really important to you know exactly what you want and need, in the nicest, kindest Venus-y way.

There is inspiration in the air this week, so try to surround yourself with people who lift you up, or read an enlightening book or listen to some uplifting music. If you can tune into this energy, it really could do wonders for your career. You could feel professionally ‘stirred’.

At home, now is the time to make sure you are taking very good care of yourself, with a lot of #self-love rituals like relaxing walks and candle-lit hot baths.

For a start, there is a big emphasis for you now on family. That’s great news because you do family so well. However as much as there is this focus on your all-important home life, you also need to hear the other message the skies are sending you this week; have some fun. Go out and let your hair down, let someone you trust take care of your brood. There are no prizes for being a martyred stay-at-home, you know!

Don’t pick an argument this week if you’re not ready for a full-blown upset. As angry Mars goes through your Love Zone, he’s being triggered, so you could be too. Any upsets now look to be with someone who matters a lot to you, so go easy if tensions build.

Because Venus is going through a rare retrograde and is highlighted this week, it could be that
money or love is the issue under discussion. Golden rule; speak nicely.

Last week’s New Moon in your House of Cash was an important one, not least because it reminded you of where you have to trim your budget if you want to stay on track with your financial aims and goals.

This week, ask yourself what’s really worth splurging on. The focus is very much on abundance this week as Mercury (our attention) and Venus (riches) meet. So work out what you need to do practically, to achieve your dream future.

Money could be the issue of the week for a lot of Librans now. If you’re lucky, actually you could feel quite inspired regarding how to make more money or even about how healthy your bank account is. However, for some Librans, there are financial delays and upsets ahead.B-r-e-a-t-h-e!

The other thing is that this week, Mercury is giving you the gift of the gab. What do you need to say to whom? You can find the words this week.

23 October – November 21

You are not quite out of the ‘Sun in the 12th House’ cycle yet which means it’s still a very good time for you to take some time out from people, your partner, exes, anyone and everyone who makes you feel drained. Don’t run your reserves down to empty!

Meanwhile, you have Venus going backwards in your sign. Expect to be thinking about what you who
and what you really value. Once you work this out, you have a priority list.

22 November – December 21

See as many people as you feel like now, because by this time next week, you might well be feeling far less sociable. It’s also a very good week to ‘use’ your contacts (nicely) if there’s something you want to do that you need help with. (Next week, not so much!)

Something else you can expect this week is a friend (probably female) needing your help in some way.
Be kind and supportive, most importantly without expecting anything in return.

The emphasis for many of you now is – as ever – on your ambitions. However, your chart also tells another story; it’s a time for you to connect with your best friends. Not just your absolute nearest and dearests but also the people in your wider circle. Who really matters? See them.

This is also the right time for you to think about who doesn’t have your back. Why are they still in your friendship circle? Maybe it’s time to cut them loose?

Mercury in your Career Zone this week is both a blessing and a burden. On one hand, Mercury is opening the way for you to make your living doing something which really lights you up. On the other, you’re in an argumentative mood and you could upset a few apple carts!

Meanwhile, at work, this is a good time for you to ask for a salary review. Obviously, you will need to have earned it but Venus retrograde will help.

The best thing you can do this week if someone is getting up your nose is to keep quiet about how you feel. Not in an unhealthy bury-your-feelings way but rather in a diplomatic least-said-soonest-mended kind of way.

Also, is there a place calling you to return/revisit? Go there! Venus is retrograding in your Travel and Adventure Zone. That promise good, old-fashioned fun. But it’s also a good time to reconnect romantically with someone ‘exotic’ whatever ‘exotic’ means to you.
