Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs October 10th 2022
Ready for a relationship future reboot?
Love can arrive in disguise
Mercury re-enters your 7th this week but keep it mind it is not yet out of retro-shade. Treat all partnership matters with caution and do watch what you say this week. There is still retrograde weather around you and sadly caused by ruler Mars now slowing for its own reversal in your 3rd. Its confused and confusing square to Neptune in your 12th could lead to misunderstandings and something said that is hard to take back.
Minor cautions aside, you are in your yearly partnership peak. Where double acts, duets and dynamic and dramatic duos feature. The Sun and Venus which rules your 7th, both make connections to Saturn in your 11th this week. Plus Mercury now makes its third and final opposition to Jupiter in your sign. Look back to who featured in your life or who you encountered and connected with six weeks ago. This may pick up or take on a fresh significance.
No matter whether you are settled, single, seeking- it’s a week to be connecting, applying, swiping, introducing yourself and certainly not lurking in hermit mode. Those you meet now could not only enter for the long haul but prove to be instrumental in some way in shaping your future. Perhaps in ways you cannot yet imagine. The planets say: Go forth! Mix and mingle and above all, be open-minded with anyone you meet. In terms of the role they have to play in your life. And also in terms of age/background/identity etc. Love like angels can arrive in disguise. As can that person who you have more in common with than you first may think.
In a nutshell: You are in your yearly partnership peak and love is what fuels your future, Aries. A particular duo, duet or double act features. As for someone new – keep an open mind on what form love takes now.
Oct 10 2022 Mercury re-enters Libra (7th)
Oct 12 2022 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (7th to 11th)
Oct 12 2022 Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (3rd to 12th)
Oct 12 2022 Mercury in Libra opposition Jupiter in Aries (7th to 1st)
Oct 14 2022 Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (7th to 11th)
Do the work
Know who those true connections are
You’re the right stuff!
You are not one to shirk when it comes to doing the work, Taurus. It is a week to keep an eye on those details and responsibilities as Mercury now direct, returns to its ruling 6th. The Sun and your ruler Venus are in here. Bringing you a renewed emphasis on work, daily duties and career matters as both trine Saturn in its ruling 10th this week.
Be boss as it’s a great week to present yourself as the perfect candidate to get the job done. Whether this is a professional or a personal ambition. You are receiving a boost and progress and rewards could be on offer for some of you. Certainly if you want to change jobs, or have an important project to launch or pitch, now is the time to get those ducks in a row.
Don’t allow yourself to get distracted especially by outside influences. Or if you are socialising this week, you might want to stick to your budget and also avoid people you know create drama. There is every chance a night out could end up costing you more than you bargained for on the 12th when Mars in your 2nd squares Neptune in your 11th. Stick to those people who you know are socially ‘safe’. And do maintain healthy boundaries. If your energy drops when someone’s name comes up on your phone, maybe it’s time to stop answering. You are about to re-enter an intense cycle where friends, groups, clubs, organisations, parties, movements and networks show you what is possible for you. Don’t waste time on those who waste yours or have become hard work.
This week also brings the third and final opposition between Mercury and Jupiter in your 12th. A shift in priorities may occur or something that was on hold since last month suddenly gets re-injected with new life. If so, it could carry you forward all the way to the end of the year, Taurus.
In a nutshell: The right stuff? That’s you this week, Taurus. It’s a great week for work and career plans. Don’t ignore the all important details. Friendships are getting locked-in for the long term. Determine your true soul circle.

Time to attract
Love and opportunity come knocking
Know what you want
Your yearly pleasure peak gets reignited thanks to your ruler Mercury returning to your 5th this week. Yes, it has a few more days of retroshadow left to work through. But it joins the Sun and Venus in here in what is the Sun’s ruling house and Venus’s ruling sign.
This week can feel like a release as opportunities around love, creativity, holidays, your social scene and being seen appear. With the retrograde difference in that in true Katy Perry form, you are not about to fall for just everything. Or anyone as this is your romance zone. Hopefully you are emerging from the intense retro weather with a clear idea what soul freedom in these areas looks like for you as the Sun and Venus hook into the structured expansion of Saturn in your 9th. Opportunity could just be on offer and if so, you will know whether it is the right one for you – or not.
Do be aware that Mars is now in retroshadow in your 1st. You are about to live with this energy all the way into 2023. It’s rather narky, snarky aspect to Neptune in your 10th midweek tells you to be ultra mindful of what you say and how you come across to others. Again, knowing what you want and employing that inner editor before opening your mouth should keep you out of hot water. Above all, don’t promise more than you can deliver otherwise you will be left with a lot of explaining to do. Have a Plan B handy or even a Plan C. Just as you do in a Mercury retro. And do keep your cool this week, Gemini. Even if others are losing theirs.
In a nutshell: Out of one retrograde and into another. This week sees ruler Mercury return to your romance and pleasure zone. Ensure you keep your word but when it comes to others – it’s all in the delivery, Gemini.
Oct 10 2022 Mercury re-enters Libra (5th)
Oct 12 2022 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (5th to 9th)
Oct 12 2022 Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (1st to 10th)
Oct 12 2022 Mercury in Libra opposition Jupiter in Aries (5th to 11th)
Oct 14 2022 Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (5th to 9th)
Revisit the past but don’t live there
Structured change releases you
Heart and mind are back in balance
Not a week to get all sentimental about the past, Cancer. Or to keep making excuses for someone for that matter. It’s time instead to face the facts and not give in to ‘The way we/things were’. If you look closely, they may not have been that great. If something or someone returns mid week when Mars in your 12th squares Neptune in your 9th ask if you want something new – or more of the same?
Change is in the air this week. It’s both structured and empowering at the same time. Are you ready to claim something different for your future? Again, this involves a practical and realistic approach. But one that sets you on course to live your own path and purpose this week. Mercury returns to your all-important 4th house. It has a few more days to fully clear retroshadow, but lifestyle, home, family, living arrangements and anything that adds to your sense of security can now move forward.
Mercury joins the Sun and Venus in here. And both the Sun and Venus will trine Saturn, planet of foundation, establishment and structure this week. This promises a change which supports your future and also hands you that ability to look at the past from a more realistic perspective. Your heart and your head can work in partnership now and you need to take actions that enhance you and those you care about, for the long term.
This may mean setting new boundaries which some may not like. Or simply choosing to say no when before you would have said yes as Mars squares Neptune this week. We also have the third and final opposition between Mercury and Jupiter in your 10th. You are in for a big shift that changes things for the long term and may begin with what you will and will no longer take onboard. Be it excuses, responsibilities, loans, what you are owed or what is owed to you. Mine the past for knowledge – but don’t necessarily go back there.
In a nutshell: Feel with that sensitive heart but do get it working in tandem with your head when it comes to long term decisions this week. And reclaim your true soul path and make smart choices when it comes to your future.
Oct 10 2022 Mercury re-enters Libra (4th)
Oct 12 2022 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (4th to 8th)
Oct 12 2022 Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (12th to 9th)
Oct 12 2022 Mercury in Libra opposition Jupiter in Aries (4th to 10th)
Oct 14 2022 Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (4th to 8th)
The talk turns to two
True colours emerge
Change the conversation – change the future
That talk may turn to partnership matters this week. Mercury re-enters its ruling 3rd in your chart joining your ruler the Sun and Venus in here. Yes, it still has a few more days to be finally free of its retroshadow in here. But you can now return to any conversations which involve you and someone significant. That past, present or potential love interest. That bestie. That collaboration or working union. And even that rival or opponent.
Change the dialogue and you change more than just the conversation. You change the connection and the future of it. Hopefully you have used this intense retro time to revise or even rehearse that message. Venus in your 3rd along with the Sun hands you the ability to say it enhanced with love or good intentions. Selling yourself in as the next best thing whether personally or professionally comes naturally now.
Of course, it could be the other party initiating that talk. But take it the results are potentially lasting. One friendship or a wider group may however be under review this week as Mars impacts on Neptune in your 8th. Take it what is said or exposed in this area also has a final quality about it. The week also brings you the third key opposition between Mercury and Jupiter in its ruling 9th in your chart. A door to opportunity, to travel, learning or freedom swings wide in your direction. You’re moving on to something better. Either literally or metaphorically this week.
In a nutshell: What you say and how you say it sets the tone for love or another close connection for the foreseeable future, Leo. A door to opportunity re-opens this week. Be ready to walk through it.
Oct 10 2022 Mercury re-enters Libra (3rd)
Oct 12 2022 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (3rd to 7th)
Oct 12 2022 Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (11th to 8th)
Oct 12 2022 Mercury in Libra opposition Jupiter in Aries (3rd to 9th)
Oct 14 2022 Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (3rd to 7th)
Ask again for a different answer
Work takes you in a new direction
Know your limits
Ruler Mercury leaves your sign for your 2nd this week and its return means you only have a few more days of retro-shade to contend with. Money and self-worth matters can begin to move forward again. But use caution until after the 17th. Being the retro-pro you know the rules, Virgo.
Mercury joins the Sun and Venus in what is Venus’s ruling house and sign. And we have two work- to-rule your future trines occurring between the Sun (12th), Venus (14th) and Saturn in your 6th. A new, more disciplined and rewarding work arrangement may emerge for you now. Do have a clear idea of what you are willing to commit to or take on. But what emerges should resonate with your Virgo desire for detail and perfection.
Meanwhile in that other Mercury-ruled sign, Gemini and your 10th, we have a different kind of retro-weather front gathering. Mars is slowing down in preparation for a protracted retrograde which begins at the end of the month and takes us all into ‘23. It’s square to Neptune in your 7th on the 12th could end up raising tempers and temperatures. Your best option? Discretion and letting go of any need to prove you are right in any disagreement.
Status setting success moves or a complete change of direction may be on offer for others this week thanks to the third and final opposition between Mercury and Jupiter in your 8th. This is very much about doing things on your terms. Especially combined with those Saturn trines. If you had a no answer before, it may well be worth your while asking or applying again. Between now and next March, expect a different reply. Nothing succeeds like faith and persistence.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mercury re-enters your money zone and along with Jupiter offers you a change around finances or how you make your bread. Take time to cool off if you encounter disagreements this week.
Oct 10 2022 Mercury re-enters Libra (2nd)
Oct 12 2022 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (2nd to 6th)
Oct 12 2022 Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (10th to 7th)
Oct 12 2022 Mercury in Libra opposition Jupiter in Aries (2nd to 8th)
Oct 14 2022 Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (2nd to 6th)
And it’s just like the ocean under the moon
Oh, it’s the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin’ that can be so smooth, yeah
Give me your heart, make it real, or else forget about it
Carlos Santana, Smooth
Give me your heart, make it real – or else forget about it. Yes, there’s a touch of daring about you this week. You’ll ask and truly want the answer when it comes to duos, duets, double acts or even that dramatic duel.
Mercury returns to your sign joining the Sun and your ruler Venus. You have superb trines occurring between the latter two and Saturn in your love zone on the 12th and 14th. So, you are after the real deal now and you need to know if you have it. You want the answer. The unedited truth. And if you have been hesitant to ask because you fear the answer, this week has you asking anyway. Better to know where you stand.
While Mercury will clear its retroshadow in your 1st on the 17th, you have Mars in its retroshade in your 9th preparing for a full retro at the end of the month which takes us through to ‘23. Just like the ocean under the moon, if someone isn’t being transparent or changes like the tide, your straight-talking approach means you’ll tell them exactly what you think. Unedited as Mars squares Neptune on the 12th.
If you are looking for love now – or even a working relationship, you are upfront when it comes to what you are seeking. And also you won’t be bothered with any filters either. Your ‘take me as I am’ attitude actually means you don’t waste time on any union that can’t give you what you want. Or see you for who you are. Isn’t that a win? The third and final opposition between Mercury and Jupiter in your 7th also occurs on the 12th. And could just hand you the answer you want – if not this week then by Halloween. Smooth talker.
In a nutshell: You want to know what’s real when it comes to someone’s feelings. Or what they want, Libra. This week sees you lay all your cards on the table. Expect that reply to free you. One way or another.

Follow where insight takes you
Ask those overdue questions
Your energy is your compass
Ancient ruler Mars will be the next planet to retrograde and in its ruling 8th in your chart. This week sees it square Neptune in your 5th of romance, creativity and children from what is your house of sex, transformation and what you share. With Mercury returning to your 12th this week and joining the Sun and Venus in your sector of secrets and hidden truths, you won’t be able to stop yourself from following up on that feeling.
This may put you in a position of having to ask a few difficult questions. Or look closely at something you may have avoided or even been in out-and-out denial over. The one question you should be asking however is ‘Is this good for me?’. Are you clinging to someone or something simply out of fear or habit?
What you need to release may become all too apparent as both the Sun and Venus trine Saturn in your 4th. Even if this has you filled with trepidation and shaking in your shoes, Mars hands you the courage you are seeking this week. While Saturn aids you in establishing boundaries if needed. If seeking love, please don’t project qualities onto someone they really don’t have. Hot can turn into so not very fast once Mars heads backwards later this month.
Long overdue changes that support you can be implemented ahead of the Sun’s arrival in your sign next week. Don’t put off what you know needs now to be done as Mercury makes its third and final opposition to Jupiter in your 6th (12th). Use your energy as a guide as to what changes need to be made or what needs to be let go of. If just thinking about someone or something sends it higher – that’s the direction you need to head in. If you feel your soul leaving your body however – time to do what that retrograde wants you to – full reverse, Scorpio.
In a nutshell: No-go areas don’t exist for you this week when it comes to asking those ‘difficult’ questions. Whether they are around love, money or your future, you need answers. Follow where your energy leads you.

Friends shape your future
Redefine your goals
Seek out pleasure
This is one of the most important periods of the year for you when it comes to your future direction, Sag. Your goals, groups, friends, networks, clubs, parties, bands, movements and organisations take on fresh life now Mercury returns to your 11th this week. Focus on your top five goals now. And don’t add another until you have accomplished one. That makes your ability to manifest so much more effective.
This is not the time to spend in hermit mode. Not that you normally do unless you are contemplating life, the universe and everything. If you are, do find fellow truth seekers to contemplate with and discover answers together. This week also brings you the third and final opposition between Mercury and ruler Jupiter in your 5th. Pleasure, maybe the promise of more than friendship but certainly the ability to set an exciting future course is on offer. As could be travel for some of you. Just remember – Jupiter is retro and Mercury will not clear retroshadow until the 17th. Pack a Plan B just in case.
A conversation or connection will prove instrumental in determining the direction you take as the Sun and Venus trine Saturn in your 3rd. Just be aware that as one retro cycle ends, a new one begins with Mars in your 7th slowing. It makes a rare retro at the end of the month which will take us into 2023. Get that conversation out of the way with your partner and also watch for domestic disputes on the 12th when Mars squares Neptune in your 4th. One more reason not to spend too much time at home, Sag. Focus on the love of friends rather than the romantic kind once Mars enters its retrograde cycle. Get out and circulate to free your soul – and your future.
In a nutshell: Good times you can share with others should be your focus now, Sag. Whatever you do – show yourself and ensure your people can find you. A social reboot may begin as a friendship but offer so much more.

Oct 14 2022 Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (11th to 3rd)
What’s your personal plan for success?
Stretch yourself into something bigger
It’s all in the details
Time to create that new personal business plan as Mercury returns to your 10th. Joining the Sun and Venus in here, you are now firmly in your annual achievement cycle. Whatever resources you have at your disposal – talent, time, money, love – you know where to best direct them this week.
Ruler Saturn in your money zone trines both the Sun and Venus and its time to big up those bold moves and stretch yourself to meet a new kind of success story. Don’t allow yourself to be defined by what others think success is however. Small minds are only capable of small steps. You need something bigger. Rewards for sticking to that path or simply know what’s right for you could be on their way. Even if only in the form of validation it seems like a big win.
The next big retro will be Mars in your work zone so turn that To Do list into a ‘Done’ list before this occurs. The 12th contains potential and the ability to cement your path or position due to the third and final opposition between Mercury and Jupiter in your 4th. Deals can be done, papers signed and you send the roots of being a successful human being deeper to preface Derek Zoolander.
Do however watch out for missing a key detail or someone simply demanding more from you that could be realistically expected. Especially if this has occurred before. Comb contracts for those hidden T&C’s and make sure your role in a new position is clearly defined as Mars and Neptune square. But if there’s a final barrier to push through between you and that success – you’ve got the desire, smarts and the boldness to do that.
In a nutshell: The business of living demands a plan. And simply being here is a success story in itself. Fabulous moves to your ruler this week by the Sun and Venus see you taking that next big step.

Oct 12 2022 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius (10th to 2nd)
Oct 12 2022 Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (6th to 3rd)

Know where you stand
Put a ring on it
Fire up your warrior soul!
No two planets stand for boundaries more than Saturn – your ancient ruler currently in your sign, and Mars – in your 5th of love, passion, attention and pleasure. With Saturn the connection is obvious – those rings. Put a ring on it, entering the ring, running rings around the competition – Saturn rules commitment as well as success. Mars is all about having the strength and confidence to stand your ground. The Good Fight? Despite the female lead a Mars show. Mars is your go-to warrior spirit. Mars sees red when a boundary is crossed. Or lets you know when you need to set new ones.
Bear all this in mind this week. We have fabulizing trines occurring between the Sun and Venus both in your sector of travel, opportunity and expansion and Saturn. Saturn has your working with what is at your disposal. And also working that worth. With the return of Mercury to your 9th at the start of the week, the vibe is very much about going for what you want. Or stating your terms.
Even though Mercury will remain in retroshadow until the 17th, you will feel the release and also the cue that’s it’s time to act. Mars is slowing down in your 5th and something may simply feel it is running out of steam. Have you got yourself all excited over not much at all? You may demand to know where you stand this week especially with lovers when Mars squares Neptune in your 2nd. Pro tip: With Mars’s full retro approaching, it may be time to either put a ring on it or abandon your search for new love for the time being.
Mercury makes its third and final opposition to Jupiter in your 3rd. Astro-savvy Aquarians will instantly see that these two are in mutual reception by house. Answers arrive or you embark on a new journey – either actual or metaphorical. You can put a ring on that.
In a nutshell: Break free angles between planets in your 9th and ancient ruler Saturn in your 1st lift restrictions. But when it comes to love – is it time to know where you stand and put a ring on it?

Are you underestimating your power?
Bank on improvements in self-worth
Know where to draw the line
People underestimate you Pisces because they mistake your compassion and quiet courage for weakness. If that’s been the case, this week you’ll show them just how wrong they’ve been in their assumptions.
Mercury returns to your change sector this week handing you searing empowerment and an ability to cut to the chase when it comes to your money, investments, home, what you share and your most intimate relationships. Especially when combined with the Sun and Venus in here. If you’ve been ignoring someone’s behaviour, dismissing a situation or making excuses – that stops now.
Key trines between the Sun, Venus and Saturn in your 12th show you that a timely response is overdue. Mars in your 4th squares your ruler Neptune on the 12th, showing you that you are justified in feeling the way you do. You now grasp the thorny nettle of change, ignore the sting and deal with it. This may of course leave anyone who has taken advantage of your good nature for too long, reeling as you reveal another side of you. Just think of this as dispensing a valuable lesson. Be Saturn. It is the teacher but also our protector.
This week also brings the third and final opposition between Mercury and co-ruler Jupiter in your 2nd. The minimum take-out you can expect from this week is a boosted sense of self-worth. Others could be counting the result of a financial matter or access to resources that is definitely in your favour and what you’ve needed. Don’t mince your words this week, Pisces. And don’t shy away from showing your strength either.
In a nutshell: Shore up that self-worth by taking action you know is necessary, Pisces. Without the guilt trip. Chances are you speaking up or making that change is long overdue. No more letting other underestimate you. Or underestimating yourself.
