Horoscope for the week of October 2, 2023

This week, the Moon wanes through the signs of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. Waning Moons are good for clearing things away and making room for other things to flourish. Tuesday and Wednesday will be especially good for that sort of thing, particularly if we’re talking about that overflowing “inbox” of yours.

Astrological chart for the week of October 2, 2023

Since Mercury is leaving Virgo for the sign of Libra on Thursday, do your best to wrap up any critical communication, travel, or “mercantile” activities early in the week.

Venus moves out of Leo late Sunday evening, and begins her long slog through the sign of Virgo, where she’ll be for the rest of the month.

Below, you’ll find your horoscope listed by sign. As always, you can use your Sun sign for this, but your rising sign usually works out better for these sorts of things. If you don’t know your rising sign, you can use Astro.com to create a chart and figure it out. Hint: it’s the sign where you find your “Ascendant.”


If relationship matters have been taking up most of your time, plan on more of the same this week. Clear, honest communication is the best tool right now to get through any challenges you and a partner may be facing. A little intimacy could also go a long way, but make sure you’re not getting your signals crossed.


Rest up if you’re feeling under the weather, but make sure you’re keeping your mind occupied. Do some crossword puzzles or sudoku if you’re into that sort of thing. Some time with friends might also do you some good, but don’t push yourself to socialize. Work within your limitations, conserve your energy, and pace yourself.


The beginning of the week should see you flying through your to-do lists and getting things done. Unfortunately, be prepared to hit the brakes after Mercury leaves Virgo on Thursday. If the end of the week has you treading water and putting out fires, the best thing you can do is make room for some fun and games so that you can “recharge” this weekend. Just watch how much money you’re spending.


This week should get off to a good start, but things might slow down a bit mid-week. By Friday, though, you should be at the top of your game. If you’ve been experiencing conflicts between your work and home life, use the weekend to think through your work-life balance and brainstorm about possible solutions.


Use this week to go over your budget, overall finances, and long-term plans for your career. The beginning of this week is a good time for “crunching the numbers,” and really sitting with your feelings regarding the workplace. Don’t make any big decisions, but do take care of any little annoyances or small issues you’ve let linger.


This week, your attention will probably turn to money and your personal finances. If you’ve been struggling to make ends meet, or have recently experienced some unplanned expenses, take some time to run the numbers and come up with a solid plan now. Some quiet time with an intimate partner could do you some good.


If stress in a long-term relationship is keeping you down, a get together with close friends could help elevate your mood. Then again, sometimes frustration can be turned into passion. Either way, connections with other people (romantic or otherwise) continue to be in focus. With “Libra season” well underway, it’s also a good time to put yourself under the microscope, so to speak. Take a good look at where you are in life, consider your hopes and dreams, and really give a thought as to what might be holding you back.


If you’ve been in a dour mood recently, some fun and games might snap you out of it. Spend some time friends, coworkers, or an intimate partner–whichever will help you get out of your own head for a while. If that proves impossible, then do your best to turn your attention to the future and try to call in a little optimism. Think about where (and who) you want to be in five years, and how to get there.


The beginning of this week should offer you some great opportunities in your career or workplace. At the end of the week, though, you should really be thinking about the future. Things might seem a little chaotic now, and it may not be obvious how you can follow your dreams from point A to point B, but a solution is there. If you’re in a long-term relationship, your partner may have some “out-of-the-box” ideas which could help.


If there’s been trouble at work, there may be an opportunity late in the week to apply some specialized knowledge to it. Somewhere in your collected wisdom, there’s an answer, though you may need to really dissect the issues in order to see it. Just be careful not to exhaust yourself in the process. Pace yourself, and you’ll do fine. Also, if you have a romantic partner, be sure to set aside some time this weekend to make a “connection.”


It’s always great to expand one’s horizons, but sometimes education or travel can be a source of stress. If you’re struggling in one of these areas, try your best to not let worry or anxiety get the best of you. Rather, use that energy to motivate yourself. Set a schedule (including plenty of time to relax and recover), break down problems or tasks into bite-sized pieces, and take things one step at a time. It would be very easy to feel overwhelmed this week if you don’t follow some kind of workable plan.


Avoiding debt and connecting with friends should be your two biggest priorities this week. Deal with any problems or annoyances that may crop up, as they crop up, but don’t sweat the small stuff any more than you have to. One exception? Take the time to really consider and double-check any work-related communications which cross your desk. Also, if your partner seems to be stuck in their head or struggling with their own problems, it might do them some good if you included them in a social event.
