It's true: Your zodiac sign plays a part in how you can live your best life — from which sex position you should try to targeting your dream-career direction. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put the current astrological aspects to work and enjoy even more happiness, wellness, and love every week. Here's your weekly horoscope for the week of October 10 through 16.
The main astrological event this week is sure to be the full moon in Aries on Sunday, the 16. We'll all feel the aggressive, game-changing energy of this "Supermoon" as soon as Wednesday and then for four days into the following week. We all might have to deal with some sort of sudden upheaval and maybe even personal drama around this time, so steel yourself for a bit of a bumpy ride.
On Saturday, the 15, the planet of revolution Uranus in Aries makes its annual opposition to the confident sun in Libra, which could be another aspect spurring out-of-the-blue changes—in your own life and/or in the national headlines. Basically, we'll all do well to expect the unexpected this week, and do our best to go with the flow.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
If you've been struggling to really connect with your partner — maybe even seriously resenting them for all the extra sleep they're getting while you're doing 2 a.m. feedings — you're due for a confrontation around Saturday, when Uranus (the planet of sudden change), currently in your sign, opposes the sun in your seventh house of partnership. The full Supermoon is also in your sign on Sunday, so this is really a "make or break" time to be assertive. You may be tempted to raise your voice, but if you can stay calm and stick to the facts, you'll have a better shot at finding a winning, harmonious solution.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Around Sunday, when the full moon is in your 12 house of spirituality, you'll benefit from self-care — and maybe even a bit of solo time for reflection, meditation, a long walk. Don't hesitate to ask your partner or a sitter to help you out. Putting your needs first RN makes it possible for you to rest and recharge so you can be even more of a supermama.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may be motivated to talk about big-picture plans with your partner or someone special in your life around Tuesday, when the planet of communication Mercury joins up with lucky Jupiter in your fifth house of romance. OK, so maybe planning a fancy winter vacay seems overly ambitious, but the more you talk about it, the less outrageous it may seem. At the very least, all that mutual daydreaming is sure to feel all sorts of magical.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may feel like you're doing a crazy circus juggling act around Saturday, when Uranus (the planet of sudden change) in your 10 house of career opposes the sun in your fourth house of family. Between professional demands and all of the chores at home, it may feel like you're completely overloaded. If your intuition tells you to gracefully bow out of a commitment or two, do it. Ultimately, you know what's best for you!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You can look forward to Tuesday, when Mercury (information-gathering, research) pairs up with lucky Jupiter in your third house of communication, and it's even easier to put your dreams and ambitions into words. Open up to those trusted mentors and colleagues, and chances are, conversations you have and the ideas you come up with will bring you even closer to achieving a big personal goal.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You tend to be a bit coy when communicating with your partner about your needs between the sheets, but around Sunday, when the full Supermoon is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, you'll get a burst of confident energy that stirs you to be bold and maybe even a little spontaneous. Own your needs and make them perfectly clear to your bae, and you won't be sorry about how it all plays out.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Yep, your M.O. is to make sure everyone in your family is content and avoid conflict at all costs, but you'll need to address an ongoing emotional issue with your partner or another relative around Sunday, when the full Supermoon is in your seventh house of partnership. It's possible that you'll both very much be on edge, but speak from the heart. Then, maybe you'll need to take a moment to reflect. When you reconnect, you'll know in your gut the best way to proceed.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Around Sunday, when the full Supermoon is in your sixth house of health and routine, you may find yourself feeling rundown, maybe even battling a bug. Though your tendency may be to pop a cold med and power through, you'll do better to see this as a red flag that something in your daily grind has got to give. Don't hesitate to ask for help and take a timeout to take care of yourself. You'll be back in fighting form soon.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Around Thursday, when the planet of communication Mercury in your 11 house of networking squares off against go-getter Mars in your second house of income, you may disagree with teammates on the direction of a professional project. You run the risk of expressing yourself in a pretty harsh way, especially if you feel like the conflict is threatening your cash flow. While there's nothing wrong with defending your perspective, figuring out the best route to collaboration leads to a payoff.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You may feel like your kids or other relatives are on their most ridiculous behavior around Sunday, when the full Supermoon is in your fourth house of family. You may have to play ref, come up with all sorts of diversions (fire up that iPad!), and generally find yourself exhausted by the frenetic tone. Yeah, you'll just want to handle the situation and move on, but someone needs to be called out for getting out of hand, stand your ground!
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Around October 16, when the full Supermoon is in your third house of communication, you'll get a burst of take-charge energy that makes it even easier than usual to assert yourself in a sticky situation — maybe with your partner or a friend who has been more demanding than understanding lately. It'll feel like a weight off your shoulders to talk it out, but don't be too insistent for immediate change. Things will fall into place as they're meant to.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You have a unique opportunity to show your partner or friend with benefits exactly what you've been fantasizing about around Tuesday, when Mercury, the planet of communication, and lucky Jupiter pair up in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Your style may be to show rather than tell — which is totally cool. As long as you're asserting yourself, you'll be pleasantly and pleasurably surprised.
