Your Oct. 2 Weekly Horoscope Is Pumping Truth and Clarity Into Your Relationships
The dynamic of our one-on-one relationships is being brought to light under the sun’s journey through harmony-seeking Libra. And though taking a closer look at what’s no longer in balance isn’t always pleasant, your Oct. 2 weekly horoscope is bringing significant clarity and momentum. The best part? Mercury and Pluto both station (aka end their retrogrades) direct this week.
Just in time for a brand-new month, the messenger planet concludes its retrograde journey on Oct. 2, which is always refreshing to hear. Although, it’s important to consider Mercury’s post-retrograde shadow, as it will retrace some of its previous “retrograde” steps until Oct. 16, and then we’re really in the clear. In the meantime, however, this is an opportunity for you to reflect on what you’ve learned or reconsidered in your most important partnerships. Then, on Oct. 3, after the first-quarter moon in Capricorn – adding a serious and pragmatic tone to the emotional atmosphere – the moon will harmonize with Uranus, which could bring some unexpected insight or news that impacts your sense of security. Given the essence of the Capricorn moon, this could also revolve around the stability of your current occupation or a professional partnership.
The moon joins forces with Saturn in Aquarius on Oct. 5, highlighting themes surrounding community affairs and your visions of the future. Conversations will likely have a serious undertone, inspiring new structures, and much-needed boundary setting. On Oct. 6, Mercury will connect with Pluto, bringing revelatory messages to the surface, perhaps after being hidden from your conscious mind for quite some time. Deeply curious and taboo-like, this could spark up a long overdue conversation with a significant other, or prompt you to take these powerful revelations into consideration in a personal way. This new perspective could lead to feelings of confusion or restlessness, as the moon in Pisces squares off with Mars on Oct. 7. Your intuition is telling you one thing, but the facts are leading you down a different path. Pluto will end its retrograde on Oct. 8, which is equally as transformative as it is empowering. The effects will be more of a slow burn, so stay tuned.
If you’re wondering what this week has in store for you, read on for your weekly horoscope for Oct. 2 through Oct. 8, according to your zodiac sign and your rising sign.

Aries (March 21–April 19) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
Lean on your peers but be discerning, Aries. The week of Oct. 2 begins with Mercury stationing direct, bringing momentum to your sixth house of health and daily routines while the moon reaches its first-quarter phase in Capricorn. With a full moon in your sign approaching, you could be taking the lead at this time, and really prioritizing your individual perspective. The moon will conjunct Saturn on Oct. 5, bringing pragmatism and structure to your community affairs and sense of belonging in the world.
Not that you owe anyone an explanation or anything like that, but there could be some boundaries needing to be set with regard to this new chapter in your life. The key is to communicate clearly and look at the situation from a logical standpoint. However, if you’re having second thoughts towards the end of the week, don’t be discouraged. The moon will make a dizzying square to your celestial ruler, Mars, on Oct. 7, creating confusion between your intuition and the facts that are being presented to you at this time. And though this is easier said than done, it’s important to be still and allow the energy to unfold as it should.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
You’re bridging the gap between your mind and heart, Taurus. This is especially true with Mercury stationing direct on Oct. 2, as it will kickstart your fifth house of love, passion, pleasure and self expression. Expect momentum around a creative pursuit or romantic interest you’ve had your eye on for quite some time. The next day, while transiting through your adventurous ninth house, the moon will connect with Uranus in your sign, which could inspire you in ways you aren’t expecting.
Given that the moon will be joining forces with serious Saturn on Oct. 5, your “eureka moment” could have something to do with your professional life, or your sense of authority in general. To follow the rules, or not? That’s the question. On Oct. 6, Mercury will form a harmonious trine to powerhouse Pluto, adorning your long-term visions with intensity and passion. Some of you may opt to spark an important conversation with someone you both respect, and admire. If you’re struggling with the reactions that may come from this decision, don’t let it influence your sense of self-worth.
Gemini (May 21–June 20) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
Your planetary ruler, Mercury, stations direct on Oct. 2, Gemini. That in itself is more than enough reason to look forward to the week ahead. Although, with the first-quarter moon in Capricorn happening that same day, you may be more focused on themes surrounding your intimate partnerships and shared resources. This could also be something you’ve considered surrendering, especially since the moon will be forming a spontaneous trine to erratic Uranus on Oct. 3. Subconscious breakthroughs are possible, namely around your individual freedom.
Just in time for the moon’s ingress into Aquarius, you’re being presented with the opportunity to crystalize a long-term vision, while others of you complete something big in the realm of education. Important conversations will come into play on Oct. 6, when your ruler, Mercury, aligns with transformative Pluto, as it will likely require you and a significant other to come to terms with a decision regarding your union. If this involves family, you may feel the need to assert yourself and set boundaries on Oct. 7. The same goes for those of you taking on a leadership role in your professional life.
Cancer (June 21–July 22) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
Ready to make your move, Cancer? The week of Oct. 2 begins on a positive note, as Mercury stations direct in Virgo and your curious third house of communication. The first-quarter moon in Capricorn will simultaneously light up your committed relationship sector, bringing emphasis to the deeper parts of your one-on-one relationships. Whether personally or professionally, you’re being called to think practically and thoroughly about your significant unions. Speaking of which, the moon will be joining forces with serious Saturn in Aquarius on Oct. 5, which highlights what’s lacking in your committed partnerships, especially as it influences structure and stability.
You may be prone to overanalyzing things on Oct. 6, as Mercury will be aligning with powerhouse Pluto in your relationship sector, suggesting the possibility of revisiting a long-overdue conversation, while others of you come clean about something weighing over your head, and set the record straight. However, despite being presented with the truth about a situation, the moon’s perplexing square to Mars on Oct. 7 could trigger feelings of confusion, uncertainty, and general restlessness. To top it off, the moon will be reaching its peak fullness within the next couple of days and Pluto will station direct in your relationship sector. Maybe you’re uncertain about what the future holds . . . but that doesn’t mean the universe isn’t already working in your favor.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
You’re getting down to business this week, Leo. As it is, in addition to Mercury stationing direct on Oct. 2, the messenger planet will bring clarity and momentum to your stability-seeking second house of values, money, and sense of security. If you’ve been overly concerned with your budgeting situation or financial circumstances, this will ease the tension at least a little bit. At the same time, there could be a lot happening in your professional life, especially on Oct. 3, when the moon harmonizes with Uranus. If things don’t go as planned, don’t apply more pressure. Things are bound to be erratic under this rebellious synergy. Then on Oct. 5, the moon will join forces with Saturn in your relationship sector, which could either make or break a commitment you’re attached to at this time.
Then, when Mercury trines powerhouse Pluto on Oct. 6, you could suddenly come to terms with a new routine you’ve recently started, or gain revelatory insight into the logistics of a situation. This could be something you’ve been revisiting since Mercury retrograde, which means it’s coming back around for a reason. The following day, however, after the moon’s ingress into Pisces, the moon will face off with Mars in your 11th house of community affairs, creating confusion and ambiguity with regards to your spiritual connection to someone vs. the person they are outside of your relationship. Personally or professionally, boundaries need to be set for the sake of your peace of mind.
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
Set your plans in motion, Virgo. The week of Oct. 2 begins on a positive note, as your celestial ruler, Mercury, concludes its retrograde journey through your sign, followed by this month’s first-quarter moon in Capricorn, bringing emphasis to your fifth house of love and self-expression. Recognizing where you’re lacking courage – or perhaps become overly dependent on meticulous strategy – is being brought to the forefront. The next day, however, the moon will connect with rebellious Uranus in your exotic ninth house of worldly pursuits, highlighting a revolution in your belief systems and long-term goals. Are you ready to take the lead?
The moon’s close proximity to Saturn on Oct. 5 adds a layer of pragmatism and seriousness to matters surrounding your daily routines and general mindfulness, but this isn’t for you to be discouraged. On the contrary, it’s an opportunity to create structure and stability, so you can eventually take that leap of faith. And as if this weren’t enough to get the ball rolling, Mercury will also link up with Pluto on Oct. 6. Expect intensity-filled conversations that bring forth tremendous insight. (For all you know, this could be a heart-to-heart with a romantic interest.) Ironically enough, the moon will be entering Pisces that same day, dissolving all boundaries between you and a significant other. Telepathy much? It will, however, square Mars on Oct. 7, so try to avoid power plays and manipulation for the sake of “winning”.
Libra (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
The truth comes out eventually, Libra. This is especially true for those of you who’ve recently had a lingering gut feeling – and thanks to Mercury direct on Oct. 2, something significant is about to be brought to your attention. This could have to do with a subconscious doubt or duty, considering the moon’s trine to liberating Uranus on Oct. 3. If it doesn’t revolve around family, then it may have to do with a significant other or someone you cohabitate with. Either way, the structure of your relationship is undergoing a significant shift. Fortunately, the moon’s shift into Aquarius will soothe some of this stubborn tension, but its conjunction to Saturn on Oct. 5 will imbue a serious tone nonetheless.
Depends on how you approach the situation, but Mercury’s alignment with Pluto could bring themes from the past back around for you to review and eventually make peace with. This could also have to do with the relationship you share with a sibling or your early upbringing. If others of you are planning on relocating or parting ways with someone, the moon’s trine to Mars on Oct. 7 could bring more chaos than clarity, so be sure to handle it sensitively. After all, there is a full moon happening in your relationship sector next week. Tread lightly.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
No new friends, Scorpio? The week of Oct. 2 begins with Mercury stationing direct in Virgo and your 11th house of community affairs. Though you’ve already got your ride-or-dies, the cosmos are urging you to take a closer look at your social networks. Who are you associating with, and why? Meanwhile, with the first-quarter moon in Capricorn touching down on your communication sector, you could be feeling inspired to set the record straight and speak your truth about something specific. The moon will also harmonize with Uranus on Oct. 3, shaking things up with you and a significant other, so make sure you’re relaying your message with honesty and integrity.
On Oct. 5, the moon will join forces with Saturn in your fourth house of home, family, and feelings, adding a layer of pragmatism and general ruthlessness around your family dynamic and home sweet home. You’re taking a good look at what you have, and reflecting on your values in the process. Does this way of life feel secure? Then on Oct. 6, savvy Mercury will harmonize with your modern ruler, Pluto, which is where things are bound to get interesting. If you’re hearing things through the grapevine, this intuitive synergy could bring forth the clarity you’ve been seeking. Pay attention to what’s being brought to your attention. If this has anything to do with a romantic love interest, the moon’s square to Mars on Oct. 7 could spark confusion between your heart’s desires vs. your prior commitments. Pluto direct means you’re getting your mojo back.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
When Mercury stations direct, your relationships start to make sense, Sagittarius. Although, given this retrograde journey took place in your 10th house of authority, you likely gained perspective and insight on career matters, as well as the dynamic of your child-to-parent/parent-to-child conversations. On Oct. 3, amidst the moon’s journey through Capricorn and your second house of stability, the moon will harmonize with Uranus. This could bring unexpected shifts to your daily routines (think: your work schedule, or maybe an elder you’ve been taking care of for the time being).
If things feel somber the next few days, it’s due to the moon’s close proximity to taskmaster Saturn. Instead of focusing on the downside, you can harness this energy when it comes to disciplining your mind and achieving some sort of self-mastery. You could also learn something new on Oct. 6, as Mercury will align with Pluto in your second house of finances and value systems. What’s no longer serving you? Does something need to change for the sake of your financial security? If things feel murky in your household on Oct. 7, it’s likely thanks to the moon’s square to Mars. However, it may be best to steer away from quarrels and confrontational behavior, as they could very well stem from making assumptions that aren’t true.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
You know what you want, where you’re going, and what you believe in, Capricorn. The week of Oct. 2 begins on an interesting note, as Mercury stations direct in Virgo and your ninth house of expansion and worldly pursuits. With the first-quarter moon phase happening in your sign, you have no choice but to take the lead when embarking on this new chapter. On Oct. 3, the moon will also harmonize with rebel Uranus in your expressive fifth house of love and self-expression, inspiring a new approach to a passion project or even a romantic interest. Others of you may even have a change of heart surrounding your desire to conceive and have children in the near future.
On Oct. 5, the moon will join forces with Saturn in Aquarius, bringing discipline and structure to your second house of money, stability, and values. If you’ve been having trouble recognizing your sense of self-worth, or what it is you value most, this will help you, at least a little bit. The question is, are you being logical about taking this next step? Mercury will be making a revelatory trine to Pluto in your sign the following day, which is where conversations are bound to intensify. Your shadow side could creep up, but it’s only for the sake of you confronting it and learning a lesson in the process.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
Don’t be afraid to speak your truth, Aquarius. This is especially significant when considering Mercury direct in Virgo on Oct. 2, as it will help bolster your eighth house of intimacy. It may be time to set some new plans in motion, some of which require you to organize yourself and meet a significant other halfway. With the moon trine your modern ruler, Uranus, on Oct. 3, chances are this has something to do with your sense of security and the stability surrounding your living space. If something isn’t working, speak now.
The moon will conjunct Saturn in your sign on Oct. 5, making you seem like the “bad guy” to others when in reality, it’s helping you assert yourself and level up. Mercury will also align with Pluto the next day, suggesting the possibility of there being a revealing or intensity-filled conversation that comes along with it. Then on Oct. 7, amid the moon’s journey through Pisces and your second house of comfort, the moon will go head-to-head with Mars in your fifth house of joy and creativity. Having second thoughts? If this is pitting your head against your heart, take a moment to clear your head, and wait for the full moon for clarity on next steps.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 2, 2022
Are you ready to make it official, Pisces? The week of Oct. 2 is bringing focus to the meticulous details – as well as the do’s and don’ts – surrounding a significant partnership, whether professional or personal. Mercury goes direct on Oct. 2, followed by the moon’s trine to Uranus on Oct. 3. This could spark an unexpected conversation, or perhaps bring something (or someone) in your social network to your awareness. Either way, it’s about to liberate you, so don’t be discouraged or fearful. The moon’s conjunction with Saturn on Oct. 5 is more grim than peachy, but if anything, this is bringing forth the opportunity to create more discipline and structure in your life.
If it’s not serving your highest good, then there’s nothing to feel guilty or regretful about. You can expect more clarity on Oct. 6, when Mercury harmonizes with Pluto in your 11th house of society, as it could bring focus to the logistics surrounding a group effort you may or may not be up for, especially since the more shadowy attributes of this collaboration will be highlighted in the process. On that note, before the moon concludes its journey through your sign, it will go head-to-head with Mars, creating confusion between your intuition and the facts. Is seeing really believing? Take a deep breath, and leave the rest up to the upcoming full moon.
