Horoscope Weekly: Oct. 5-11
By Samantha Perkins
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – You like to skip steps and get to an end product quickly, but this week you just need to take things one at a time. Just because things are happening slower than you’d like doesn’t mean they’re not happening at all. The world is just testing your patience. And besides, sometimes after a long time spent waiting around, things happen all at once. Expect your life to pick up speed towards the end of the week. A whole bunch of things will start going your way. You’re going to spend a lot of time with your family this weekend. Spending a lot of time with family members can make anyone start to feel tense, but no matter what happens, remember that they love you and you love them.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – You’re going to be charged up at the beginning of the week. It’ll be like someone plugged you into a wall overnight and now you have energy to burn. Instead of bouncing off the walls, find time to do something athletic, even if it’s just walking around the block. By the middle of the week, your mood is going to change and you’re going to feel more, for lack of a better word, moody. You’re not going to feel like doing much at all. You’re going to have a lazy weekend too, but by then you should be in a better mood.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – It’s not always easy for you to stay focused, but you are not the kind of person who just gives up. You have your sights set on the future and, come what may, you’re going to get there. You see obstacles as an opportunity to use your top-notch problem-solving skills. Use that go-getter attitude to bang out those college applications or that paper that’s due this week. Whatever happens, make sure to communicate how you’re feeling. You have a ton of people in your life that care about you, but some of them haven’t heard from you for a while. When you’re in charge of the world, you’re going to want to have good friends by your side.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) – If you don’t have any plans to go to a party this week, make some. This week, you’re at your best in social situations. There’s a chance you’re going to have a breakthrough on Friday or Saturday, about your career or about your love life, and you’re going to need to rely on some of your new friends to turn your goals into realities.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – You’d love to be thinking about your family or your love life, but this week it’s all about your career. Nothing is black or white, but you have some vague ideas about what you’d rather be doing, and you’re ready to take steps towards getting there. You should talk about your hopes with your friends. They may have some solid advice for you, and some may even be able to help you out. With help from a few friends, this weekend may be a good time to create a game plan for the future.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) – You’re ready to get out of your own head for a while. You’ve been dealing with work and friends and family and you’re kind of exhausted. What about a vacation? Or committing yourself to reading a really big book? Whatever it takes, you should start to seriously think about expanding your horizons. You love your life and you’re doing great work, but you’re still not satisfied. Spend the weekend with people you love and admire. What are they doing with their lives? Are they happy? Is there anything you could learn from them?
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – There are some things in this world you can count on. In a shifting, sliding universe, it’s worth noting that some things just never change. One thing that never changes are your human attachments: the people who are close to you, the people you love. You should invest a lot of time and energy into your friendships and your love life this week. Have a sleepover with your best friends, go on a date with your significant other, and just spend some quality time with the people you love this weekend.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – You and you-know-who may be going through a rough patch this week, Scorpio, but that’s perfectly normal. That’s what happens when two people are so closely aligned. Remember the key to any relationship (whether it be romantic or otherwise) is compromise. That does not mean compromising on the things that are really important to you, it just means that you give a little and they give a little until you both reach common ground. The only reason you two came to a head in the first place is because you both truly, deeply care.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – No matter what happens this week, never stop communicating with the people you care about. Only when you start shutting people out do you encounter trouble. So you have a lot of responsibilities this week. So what? Don’t let them get you down. Keep your head down, do what needs to be done, and ask for help when you get stuck. This weekend, someone is going to come to you for some advice. The conversation may get a little deep, so just be there for them.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – You’re finally getting an opportunity to show your creative side, Capricorn. Someone needs help with something, and they’ve turned to you. It’s flattering to be the person others look up to; it can also be exhausting. Do as much as you can to help, but don’t go overboard. You only have so much energy. Once you’re done helping, start thinking about your own needs. You’ve earned it!
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – This week is all about trying to keep in touch with people. You could be better at responding to emails, texting people back, etc. The problem is that you’re easily distracted. Actually, you’ll probably be distracted later this week (by a love interest, no less). Over the weekend, once your heart rate has slowed down, start thinking about ways to be more organized and on top of things.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – Your mind is on love this week. All you can think about is beauty, poetry, love letters, and terrific dinners. You’re a real romantic this week, even more than usual. You are entering a period of sweetness and thoughtfulness, and others are starting to notice, too. (Maybe that’s why that person you’ve been crushing on is paying you so much attention). The more you figure out about romance, the more exciting and mysterious it seems. Go out on a date this weekend. Maybe to a concert, or that movie that you’ve been wanting to see.
