It’s not exceptionally easy to relax later today as tensions rise, but you’re more willing than usual to put in the effort to smooth things over.
LibraWhile the recent New Moon brought a focus on replenishment and rest, dear Libra, the Sun enters your sign today, prompting you to begin anew and perhaps come out of your shell. You’re doing some soul-searching, and much goes on behind the scenes, but you’re also highly noticeable and effective in the outside world. If you’ve been neglecting your psychic, spiritual, and emotional needs, then this is a time that forces you to pay attention. At the same time, you are encouraged to look ahead and “seize the day” as the new Sun cycle helps you make an impression. The Sun transits Libra until October 22nd, vitalizing your personality and personal plans. Today, you take friendship more seriously, or you’re ready to commit to a project or cause. Activities or ideas shared with friends or in group settings can be uniquely healing and helpful right now.
ScorpioThe recent New Moon put the focus on making contacts and reaching out to others, dear Scorpio. Today, however, the Sun enters your privacy sector, and while networking is important this week, part of you needs some time to yourself to heal, forgive, and rest. The Sun will spend a month (until October 22nd) here in your solar twelfth house. You can experience increasing needs for replenishment in the weeks ahead. You’re tying up loose ends and reconsidering specific projects or paths in preparation for the Sun in your sign cycle that begins on October 22nd. It’s a fertile period for exploring your inner world. Some form of retreat is right for you now, as it’s crucial to avoid overload, but watch if escapist tendencies go a little too far. With the Moon in your resources sector today, you’re also interested in getting comfortable or building upon already in-progress ideas and projects. You can find yourself pleasantly committed to your work or a particular purpose.
SagittariusThe Sun enters your solar eleventh house today for a month-long stay, dear Sagittarius, highlighting a need to network and honor your connections with others. You have a stronger influence on friends and groups during this period, which boosts your self-esteem in turn. Being a team player will bring the best rewards in this cycle that lasts until October 22nd this year. This sector of your chart rules dreams, wishes, hopes, ideals, and friendship, and these themes are now in the spotlight. Mercury is already transiting this sector, and now you’ll see a more distinct shift of focus to your social and humanitarian or personal happiness goals. Opportunities for friendship and shared happiness arise. Sharing your work, ideas, or expertise with others can be rewarding. It’s a time to latch onto dreams and plans for the future and to create meaningful goals. Today, the Moon transits your sign, and your emotional needs are in stronger focus. It’s a good time to commit to activities that help you take good care of your mind, body, and spirit.
CapricornThe Sun moves into your professional, public sector today, dear Capricorn, beginning a month-long cycle that brings more power and attention to your career and responsibilities. This transit ties your ego and identity more strongly to your professional or social standing and your ability to meet your obligations. The weeks ahead are active for recognizing and honoring your goals and ambitions. Your attention turns to professional matters, objectives, material or social success, and your reputation. Your instincts for advancement are excellent now, and others are noticing you for what you do or how you perform. You’re more personally invested in your accomplishments and might be in higher demand than usual now. Bringing more order or structure to your life makes sense in the weeks ahead. Today, however, the Moon transits your privacy sector, bringing on a need to let go and relax. Still, you might find yourself pleasantly committed to a person or project.
AquariusThe New Moon that occurred five days ago has brought extra attention to your intimacy sector, dear Aquarius. Still, the Sun enters your sector of spirit, adventure, and the higher mind today, and a desire to come out of the woodworks is with you. Until October 22nd, you crave and seek a little more from life than the ordinary. While, on some level, you could be feeling as if you are reawakening, Mars remains retrograde, and finding outlets for expressing your desires may not be as straightforward as usual. Even so, this period is favorable for nurturing your spirit to grow, expand, learn, and understand. It’s an excellent time for picking up or furthering personal interests or studies. You’re more able to see beyond the usual boundaries and limits on your life. Today is good for mental activities or pleasant exchanges. You gravitate toward activities that are undemanding and light-hearted as you need a break from pressures to perform. You’re in good shape for reaching a fair agreement or compromise.
PiscesThe Sun moves into your intimacy sector and will transit there until October 22nd, dear Pisces. In the month ahead, you’re taking life and your deeper needs from it more seriously. This cycle holds strong potential for healing, observing, and strategizing. Your private world assumes more importance, and you take particular notice of the hidden layers of circumstances and people around you. It can be an excellent period for focus, concentration, and an increased feeling of mission, passion, or purpose. Situations, people, and activities that help you heal, improve, grow, and transform are a big draw. You might become thoroughly engrossed in a personal project or relationship during this cycle. It’s a more introspective, deeper, intense period of the year. Today’s vibes are good for cooperation. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, reminding you of your larger goals and ambitions or current progress.
