Your Oct. 9 Weekly Horoscope Is Bringing a Much-Needed Shift in Perspective
If you felt uninspired at the beginning of the month, then you’ll be as delighted as ever to know that the retrograde shenanigans (i.e. delays, misunderstandings, and brain fog) are finally coming to an end. Basking in the magic of Libra season never felt so good, and your Oct. 9 weekly horoscope is kicking things off at full speed.
The week begins on a fiery note thanks to a dynamic full moon in Aries. Sitting alongside Chiron retrograde, this lunation is shining a light on your vulnerabilities and emotional triggers, specifically those revolving around individual autonomy. This will help bring clarity and understanding to what you consider authentic about yourself. Fortunately, the sun’s close proximity to Venus in Libra will simultaneously bring you closer to the partnerships and collaborations that have your best interest at heart.
On Oct. 10, Mercury will join Venus and the sun in Libra, adding to the light-hearted essence of this Venus-ruled season. When fluttering through this cardinal air sign, the messenger planet teaches us the value of compromise, making it easier to relate and connect with others. Although, with Mercury still in its post-retrograde shadow until Oct. 16, you may be more likely to reconsider commitments you made at the beginning of September. The next day, the sun will harmonize with Saturn, which helps bring discipline and structure to personal and professional partnerships. However, if decisions seem hazy on Oct. 12, there’s no need to overthink it. Mars will be facing off with Neptune, creating tension between your instincts vs. the facts being presented to you. Luckily, Venus will follow in the sun’s footsteps, forming a trine to Saturn on Oct. 14, so the answers you seek will come soon enough.

Aries (March 21–April 19) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
The spotlight’s on your personal life, Aries. The week of Oct. 9 begins on an emotionally charged note, as the moon will peak in your sign, bringing closure and intuitive clarity. That said, this lunation is urging you to go within and confront the wounds, fears, and insecurities you’ve been unconsciously repressing for the sake of keeping a brave face. The good news is you have plenty of support from the sun and Venus in your relationship sector followed by Mercury on Oct. 10. This gives you all the more reason to connect with those you hold dear to your heart.
In fact, if you’re not already in contact with a romantic interest or a professional prospect, the sun’s trine to Saturn retrograde on Oct. 11 is bringing stability to your 11th house of community affairs, which can be helpful for both. Although, given Mars’s perplexing square to Neptune on Oct, 12, you may want to sleep on it before making a final decision. For those of you waiting to hear back from a potential partnership or work venture, Venus’s connection to Saturn on Oct. 14 could be the day you decide to seal the deal.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Leave it all behind you, Taurus. A fiery full moon in Aries will touch down on your inhibited 12th house of closure on Oct. 9 while making a conjunction to Chiron. In addition to this full-circle moment in your personal life, this lunation is urging you to surrender the unconscious burdens that have been weighing on you, specifically those surrounding your finances and sense of security.

Whether it’s flirty banter with a cute coworker or an aesthetically pleasing environment, balance and harmony will be available to you.
Keep in mind, you’re more likely to second-guess yourself on Oct. 12 when Mars squares off with hazy Neptune, as it could create tension between your ideals vs. what’s really going on. Don’t let an illusion spark FOMO. The good news is your celestial ruler, Venus, will link up with Saturn on Oct. 14, bringing stability to themes around your daily grind or profession.
Gemini (May 21–June 20) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Take the lead, and show the world how it’s done, Gemini. The week of Oct. 9 begins on an energetic note as the full moon in Aries ignites your experimental 11th house of community affairs and individual freedom. However, given that it will sit alongside Chiron retrograde, you could feel triggered around your sense of belonging in the world. This is all the more reason to confront where this wound is truly coming from.
Luckily for you, the sun will be sitting alongside Venus in Libra followed by your celestial ruler, Mercury, on Oct. 10. You have so many reasons to be proud, so don’t let anything stop you from celebrating your accomplishments. Then on Oct. 11, the sun will harmonize with Saturn bringing structure to your future plans. And on Oct. 12, while sizzling through your sign, Mars will face off with Neptune in your career sector, creating confusion between your professional ideals vs. a desire to charge forward. Maybe things aren’t set in stone, but rest assured, Venus’s trine to Saturn on Oct. 14 will bring some clarity.
Cancer (June 21–July 22) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Reach for the stars, and don’t look back, Cancer. You’re naturally susceptible to the phases of the moon, and this week’s full moon in Aries will touch down on the most visible part of your chart on Oct. 9. Sitting alongside Chiron retrograde, this lunation will shed light upon the repressed burdens that have made you feel the most vulnerable. With Mars sizzling through your 12th house of unconscious patterns, this could very well be a thought pattern or conversation you weren’t aware of.
On Oct. 11, the sun will meet with Saturn retrograde, grounding your unions and partnerships. Whether personally or professionally, you will have the necessary clarity and overall sense of direction to set the necessary boundaries. Keep in mind, Mars will face off with Neptune the next day, which means you could suddenly fall into a spiral of confusion – but, really, nothing is as it seems. Staying off social media might help alleviate the sensory overload, so take a break if needed.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Follow your inner compass, Leo. The week of Oct. 9 begins with a dynamic full moon in Aries, shaking up your exotic ninth house of adventure and expansion while conjunct Chiron retrograde. This could trigger resentments or fears from your past, but it’ll only help you move forward for good. Maybe it’s a unique belief system or a desire to venture out into the unknown. If this revolves around a significant partnership, the sun’s trine to Saturn retrograde on Oct. 11 will bring forth the clear-headedness needed to make a decision.
A word of warning: steer away from outer influences and sensory overload on Oct. 12. Mars will go head to head with Neptune, creating confusion between the relationship you share with a significant other and the ongoing chatter coming from friends and family. It’s up to you to decide what’s best for you, so try to keep your centre. The good news is Venus will connect with serious Saturn on Oct. 14, bringing harmony and stability to your commitments and one-on-one partnerships, so things should feel easier all around.
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
You’re being called to take a closer look at your commitments this week, Virgo. For starters, there will be a full moon in Aries on Oct. 9, calling forth strong gut feelings surrounding your partnerships and sources of income. The moon’s close proximity to Chiron could be emotionally triggering, but there’s no reason to repress what comes up – on the contrary, something’s being brought to your attention for a reason. The next day, your celestial ruler, Mercury, will reenter Libra followed by the sun’s trine to taskmaster Saturn on Oct. 11. Long story short? You’re getting down to business.
Don’t lose focus, though; you’re not completely out of the woods, especially since Mars will face off with elusive Neptune on Oct. 12. Mars is looking for the facts and taking charge, but Neptune is laying fog over the reality of your situation. The planet of dreams is transiting through your relationship sector, so it’d be best to not make any assumptions . . . at least until you know the truth firsthand. In the meantime, this gives you all the more reason to prioritize your personal goals and sense of security.
Libra (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Nurture your individuality, both in and out of your relationships, Libra. The week of Oct. 9 begins with a fiery full moon in Aries igniting your committed seventh house of compromise and significant others while sitting alongside the wounded healer, Chiron. Keep in mind, the moon’s ruler, Mars, is currently glimmering through Gemini, bringing momentum and passion to energies surrounding your worldly pursuits, and belief systems. That said, if you find yourself feeling iffy about a significant other’s philosophy and whereabouts, this is where you’re being called to confront what’s bothering you. Keep in mind: communicating with honesty is key.
Just in time for Mercury’s ingress into your sign on Oct. 10, you’ll likely revisit contracts or conversations from early September, especially those of you who are now having a change of heart. As it is, the sun will connect with Saturn on Oct. 11, giving you the green light to crystalize your sense of identity, personally or professionally. On the dark side, however, Mars will face off with Neptune the following day, and this could have you feeling confused or restless. If that’s the case, take a step back from overthinking. Your celestial ruler, Venus, will have a talk with Saturn on Oct. 14. All you need to do is be honest with yourself.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Are there responsibilities weighing on you as of late, Scorpio? This week’s full moon in Aries will ignite your sixth house of daily routine while conjunct Chiron retrograde. Mars will also be sizzling through your eighth house of intimate unions, suggesting that you might be feeling burdened from overcommitting yourself. The influence of Chiron is urging you to take a step back and reflect on the way these responsibilities are affecting you mentally and spiritually. What are you trying to prove?
Just in time for some well-deserved R&R, Mercury will join Venus and the sun in Libra on Oct. 10 in your sleepy 12th house of inhibitions. Check in with yourself and silence your notifications. You simply can’t come to the phone right now, and that’s OK. The sun will also harmonize with Saturn on Oct. 11, which is an excellent time for you to create more discipline and structure in your life balance. Setting boundaries between your personal life and that of your professional pursuits is also suggested. If you feel restless and/or confused about where you stand with regard to a commitment on Oct. 12, don’t be discouraged. It doesn’t get more ambiguous than Mars square Neptune.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
Lights, camera, action! Are you ready for your close-up, Sagittarius? The week of Oct. 9 begins with a fiery full moon in Aries bringing sizzling passion to your fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and self-expression. Despite the celebration and pizazz that could come from this lunation, it will be sitting alongside Chiron retrograde, which urges you to reflect on the vulnerabilities and emotional triggers you could be experiencing simultaneously. Are you inhibited in your self-expression or opening your heart to the possibilities?
On a brighter note, the sun’s trine to structured Saturn on Oct. 11 will bring the clarity you need to move forward with confidence. That is, until Mars squares off with perplexing Neptune on Oct. 12, as it could create feelings of confusion and general restlessness with regard to your sense of security vs. that of a significant other’s. Luckily, the ambiguity won’t last for long: Venus will also meet with Saturn before the week comes to a close, which is when you’re being presented with an opportunity to seal the deal or simply move on.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
You’re getting your ducks in a row this week, Capricorn. There will be a dynamic full moon in Aries on Oct. 9, bringing emphasis to your fourth house of innermost feelings and emotional foundations, but it will sit alongside Chiron retrograde. There’s no such thing as perfect, but with Mars sizzling through your detail-oriented sixth house of routines, you’re prone to feeling like you’re not enough. This could also stem from a repressed wound or burden from your past, but the good news is this lunation is here to help you confront it.
The rest of the week, you’re more likely to go inward, but the sun’s trine to your taskmaster ruler, Saturn, on Oct. 11 could be the sweet pick-me-up you’ve been waiting for. You’re ready to take the initiative and dedicate more of your time and energy to a new income stream or professional project. Keep in mind, Mars will square off with Neptune on Oct. 12, so try to steer away from overthinking things, because you’re bound to second-guess yourself or overcomplicate things. Be sure to follow your intuition instead, especially since Venus will harmonize with Saturn on Oct. 14. You’re not only looking the part but also making that money.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
If people aren’t supportive of your goals and dreams, then maybe it’s time for you to take your energy elsewhere, Aquarius. The week of Oct. 9 begins with a full moon in Aries igniting your third house of intellect while sitting alongside Chiron retrograde. Mars is also sizzling through your fifth house of acknowledgment, suggesting a lack of recognition coming from your peers, siblings, or local community. If this happens to be the case, you’re being called to reflect on where your desire to fit into this group dynamic is stemming from.
On a brighter note, the sun will eventually harmonize with Saturn retrograde on Oct. 11, which will serve as a guiding light toward a new journey that’s up ahead. This is incredibly helpful, especially when it comes to having discipline, so be sure to harness this stable synergy wisely. Don’t panic if things aren’t making sense on Oct. 12, as Mars will be going head to head with ambiguous Neptune, creating tension between your heart’s desires and your sense of security. Having faith is easier said than done when something isn’t making logical sense, but this perplexing energy won’t last for long. Leave it up to Venus’s trine to Saturn on Oct. 14 for the clarity and validation you crave.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20) Weekly Horoscope For Oct. 9, 2022
You’re taking your power back and showing yourself more love this week, Pisces. There will be a full moon in Aries on Oct. 9, bringing something significant to fruition in your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and values. The challenge? The moon will be sitting alongside Chiron retrograde, all while Mars sizzles through your fourth house of emotional foundations. This could bring repressed wounds or burdens to the surface but only so you can confront them once and for all.
This is especially significant for those of you who have been feeling inhibited or stifled when it comes to your sense of stability; you’re breaking generational patterns, and you’re doing it for your children’s children. Then, if you’re feeling restless on Oct. 12, it’s likely thanks to Mars’s square to Neptune, as you’re prone to feeling torn between the desire to go inward vs. communicating with those around you. Things could feel hazy and confusing but not for long. In fact, thanks to a validating trine between Venus and Saturn, you’ll have your Zen back before the week comes to a close.
