Weekly Horoscopes: October 18th – 24th, 2021

There's a lot of stop-start energy around this week, so we need to be careful to pace ourselves, especially with any major projects. Monday begins promisingly enough, with Mercury turning direct in Libra and Mars forming an energizing and optimistic trine with Jupiter.
Wednesday's Full Moon in Aries, however, opposes Mars, and speaks to frustration as this go-getting vibe is halted in its tracks. And Mars isn't yet done for the week – a very tense Mars-Pluto square on Friday is extremely challenging for anyone who is trying to force through their chosen course of action.
All is not lost: look to the arrival of the Sun in purposeful, determined Scorpio on Saturday for a renewal of the focus and can-do attitude that started the week.
The early part of this week is fantastic for sharing ideas and resources with your partner, colleagues and friends; the Mars-Jupiter trine on Monday is especially optimistic about community work or charitable efforts.
Wednesday's Full Moon in Aries is opposed by your ruling planet Mars, however, and you'll find yourself torn in two directions at this time. Your head says stop, but your heart says go. Your best option is to wait out this stalemate. As difficult as that may seem, Friday's Mars-Pluto square will demonstrate that patience is the best option, especially in career matters.
You'll get the go-ahead again when the Sun shifts into your passion zone on Saturday, freeing your ability to pursue your goals.
Monday's Mars-Jupiter trine is good news for your work situation, giving you the opportunity to break free from routine drudgery and to try something new and more challenging instead.
However, Wednesday's Full Moon in your illusions zone comes with an added crisis of confidence and you may start to second guess your own abilities. Friday's Mars-Pluto square is difficult too, and you may feel as though you've simply taken on way too much to handle.
If you can sit it out for a couple of days, you'll benefit from not taking any hasty action. Once the Sun shifts into your partnership zone on Saturday, interpersonal relationships will prove to be the key to getting moving again; you're not alone.
Monday and Tuesday look set to be adventurous, feel-good days. Your ruler Mercury turns direct in your joy zone and a delicious Mars-Jupiter trine ensures that you can spread your wings and enjoy new things.
Expect some angst around friendships or teamwork on Wednesday, however, when a difficult Full Moon in your social zone opposes an angry Mars. When Mars squares Pluto on Friday, rivalries and jealousies could easily drift out of control, so be very careful not to do anything you will later regret.
On Saturday, the Sun moves into your health zone, which will help to clear away some of the mid-week stress. Focus on your mental and emotional wellbeing – try meditation to keep you centered.
Family dynamics get a boost early this week when Mercury turns direct in your family zone and a lovely Mars-Jupiter trine encourages big-hearted forgiveness and togetherness.
Wednesday's Full Moon in your career zone would normally suggest fulfillment there too, but this lunation opposes an angry Mars and highlights frustration over missed opportunities. When Mars then squares Pluto on Friday, your relationship may suffer from stress related to your career.
Hang on in there; this will pass soon enough. The Sun shifts into your joy zone on Saturday, so use the cosmic vibes this weekend to have some fun with your sweetheart. If you're single, this will also be an excellent time for dating.
Lively connections with your partner or sweetheart are a lot of fun early this week. Mercury turns direct in your communication zone and Mars trines Jupiter from here too, creating a beautiful and optimistic link to your love life.
However, the Full Moon on Wednesday highlights the lack of adventure in your current life. Opposed by a frustrated Mars, this lunation could impact your love life if boredom is an issue. When Mars squares up to Pluto, routines also come under strain, perhaps reaching breaking point.
Look to the Sun's change of sign on Saturday for some relief; with the Sun's warmth now illuminating your family zone, dynamics at home should change, bringing about a more peaceful and content vibe for the weekend.
Last week's abundance vibe continues into the early part of this week, especially when Mars trines Jupiter on Monday. There's definitely potential here to increase your income; think laterally about how you might do that.
Wednesday's Full Moon occurs in your debt zone and opposes Mars, so you'll want to make sure that you are up to date with your financial affairs mid-week. Look out for the need to repay emotional debts too, particularly when Mars squares up to Pluto on Friday in a tense standoff over past events.
This will all get easier once the Sun moves into your communication zone on Saturday. You'll find it easier then to marshal your thoughts and to say what needs to be said, in the right way, at the right time.
You have everything going for you in the early part of this week; Mercury turns direct in your sign and the joyful Mars-Jupiter trine boosts your self-confidence and brings you many opportunities for love, luck and enjoyment.
The Full Moon in your love zone on Wednesday highlights tensions in your love life, however, especially given its opposition to an angry Mars. This is further underlined on Friday, when Mars squares up to Pluto and hints at tensions over your work-family balance.
Look to the weekend and the arrival of the Sun in your resources zone to help ease financial pressures, which in turn will help to calm and settle any relationship nerves. The key is to be patient and to avoid taking family arguments too personally.
This week starts on a very positive note, with Mercury turning direct in your spiritual zone, clarifying your thoughts and your psychic energies. The lovely Mars-Jupiter trine on Monday also encourages healing and reconciliation with others.
It may be a different story at work, however, especially during the Full Moon in your colleagues zone on Wednesday. This lunation opposes Mars and suggests confrontation or anger; to make matters worse, the Mars-Pluto square on Friday hinders your communication and may let loose some secrets you would have preferred to keep hidden.
These tensions will be difficult to handle, but not impossible. Relief will come on Saturday when the Sun moves into Scorpio and your confidence grows. Allow the Sun's warmth to melt away the anger of the previous few days.
Socializing is a lot of fun early this week and meeting other people will be important to you. With Mercury now direct in your social zone, you'll feel energized and enthusiastic, especially during Monday's Mars-Jupiter trine.
Watch out for impulsive gambling or other reckless behavior on Wednesday, when the Full Moon opposes impetuous Mars from your risk zone. You should be especially careful not to risk financial loss at this time, and when Mars squares up to Pluto on Friday. Seek expert financial advice if necessary.
You'll hopefully regain your serenity over the weekend when the Sun moves into your spiritual zone. This would be a good time for a retreat, or simply a chance to chill out with your own daydreams.
Start the week as you mean to go on at work – everything is in your favor. Mercury turns direct in your career zone on Monday and the same day the promising Mars-Jupiter trine showcases multiple opportunities to progress and to expand your status.
Hold onto this feel-good factor in your head mid-week, because Wednesday's Full Moon is likely to be trickier. Opposing Mars, this lunation highlights your family zone and brings out the rivalries, pet peeves and feuds that have been simmering beneath the surface. When Mars squares Pluto on Friday, expect some angry outbursts on that front.
Put it out of your mind over the weekend and enjoy some fun with good friends. The Sun shifts into your social zone on Saturday, so it's the ideal time to enjoy good company.
You're in fine shape as the week begins, learning, growing and creating excellent ideas. The Mars-Jupiter trine on Monday is very innovative, enabling your inner genius to shine in many different ways.
Watch what you say on Wednesday, however. The Full Moon in your communication zone opposes Mars – something you say on impulse could have unfortunate and far-reaching effects. Be especially careful around social media – don't hit that post button! Friday's tense Mars-Pluto square also highlights secret knowledge versus common knowledge, so play your cards close to your chest.
The good news is that on Saturday the Sun moves into your career zone, so you will start to see rewards for all of your hard work so far.
You're in a good place as this week begins. Mercury turns direct in your passion zone and on the same day, Mars trines Jupiter in a happy harmony of love and abundance.
You will need to be careful with your money during Wednesday's Full Moon, however. This lunation opposes impulsive Mars, so reckless spending is a possibility, especially if you're trying to impress someone. Don't give in to peer pressure where money is concerned, especially on Friday when Mars squares up to Pluto.
On a more positive note, the Sun arrives in your adventure zone on Saturday. Get outdoors for a hike, visit a beauty spot or try a new adrenaline-filled sport. The world is out there waiting for you!
