Horoscopes for the Week of October 10th-17th

When it comes to love this week, all you need to remember is this: You’re only as sick as the secrets you keep. On Tuesday, this advice will serve you well when the Sun, ruler of your 7th House of Partnerships, squares off with Pluto, now in your 12th House of Spirituality. Expect nothing but anxiety if you’re holding something back from your mate on this day. Fortunately, the strain will quickly pass. For the rest of the week you’ll enjoy extraordinary communication aspects that will surely help you nurture your love life.

Good news! Mercury, ruler of your 7th House of Relationships, happens to make nothing but gorgeous aspects this week, so you might escape the planetary fury some of the other signs will endure when it comes to love. On Tuesday, Mercury will be at a perfect trine to Neptune, now in your sign. You and your partner might feel as if you’re sharing the same mind or can read each other’s. Then, on Sunday, Mercury and Pluto will be at a gorgeous sextile. Attend a social event with your mate. The mental stimulation will deepen your connection.

If it’s not your boss aggravating you, it’ll be your spouse or partner. Most likely, it’ll be both. Your mate isn’t exactly showing waves of support for your career aspirations these days. Why? Because your ambition is clearly cutting into your snuggle time, and quite honestly your lover is feeling the pang. Unfortunately, you’ll have little patience for any whining. Try to use Friday’s New Moon in your 7th House of Relationships to send a message of tough love to your mate. At the same time, keep in mind that you can have it all… but not all at once.

You might feel like you’ve dodged a relationship disaster this week  — especially when you look around the lives of your Cardinal sign friends. In your case, however, love is grand. That’s because you’ll have the most supportive communication links to help you and your mate continue to forge open, honest dialogue about whatever is happening in your little romantic bubble. On Tuesday, Mercury in your 7th House of Relationships will be at a perfect trine to Neptune, allowing you to share your greatest ideals with each other. Then, on Sunday, Mercury will be at a friendly angle to Pluto helping you make the most of your mutual mental telepathy.

Sometimes love hurts. This week, Gemini, it might even sting. If, however, you’re able to see the events of this week as a necessary growing pain, you’ll reach the other side. What’s there? Opportunity for new romance. But first, the pain. On Tuesday, you might feel extra vulnerable with a lover — even overpowered. These feelings may be so uncomfortable that by Thursday your reaction might be to bail. Ask yourself if this is warranted or if you’re having a crisis due to any underlying intimacy issues. If it’s the latter, a breakthrough is possible thanks to Friday’s New Moon in your 5th House of Romance.

This week, it all depends on your relationship status. If you’re in a committed relationship, you might experience some domestic tension. If, however, you’re dating someone new, you can expect romance to be much happier. On Tuesday, the Sun in your 4th House of Home will clash with Pluto, now in your 7th House of Partnerships. A domestic squabble might lead to a breaking point in your marriage or committed relationship.

A clash of ideology between you and your partner on Thursday might be more than you can handle. For you, it’s a matter of pride and principle, and you may become searingly conscious of the fact that your mate doesn’t share one or more of your core values. This could prove to be a deal-breaker for you. If communication doesn’t improve after Friday’s New Moon in your 3rd House of Information, you may decide that you and your lover have a case of irreconcilable differences.

Feeling undervalued, underappreciated, or just plain used? If so, this week you may reach a boiling point. On Tuesday, the Sun will rub elbows with Pluto, now in your 5th House of Romance. Because the Sun is in your 2nd House of Self-Worth, it’s possible that you’ll feel manipulated or even taken advantage of by your sweetheart. Try to keep any spiteful reactive feelings in check. The urge to withhold love may be strong, but a tit-for-tat approach will only make things worse.

You might feel as if you’re banging your head against a brick wall when it comes to love and relationships this week. On Thursday, the Sun in Libra will oppose Venus, now in your 7th House of Partnerships. Peace and compromise might seem out of reach, because everything you thought you knew about your relationship is likely to be tested. Then, on Friday, a New Moon will fall in your sign. You’ll want to make a change in your personal life and development, but it’s an uncomfortable one. Do it anyway.

You may be the voice of reason this week, because of  all of your friends having a romantic crisis. In fact, you and your lover might be looked upon as the ultimate “power couple” — the duo with an ability to remain invincible together no matter what the circumstances. On Tuesday, Mercury, now in your sign, will be at a perfect trine to Neptune, now in your 5th House of True Love. You’ll communicate about matters of the heart to your lover and to others with inspiration and ease

Expect the unexpected when it comes to romance this week, Sagittarius. If that’s your forecast, then you know that Uranus, planet of sudden shake-ups, must be involved. Indeed he is. He’s already been trekking through your 5th House of True Love, awakening you to the possibilities of new, groovier kinds of love since 2011. Well, this week, on Thursday, the Sun will oppose Uranus, which will wake him up and get his juices flowing. In your love life this will translate into a shocking turn of events. Don’t worry… it could be everything you’ve ever hoped for.

It’s not so much that your relationship is in trouble this week, Capricorn. The unfortunate reality for you is that every other dynamic in your life may be stressed to the point that you inadvertently take things out on your mate. Stress at work is likely on Tuesday, and strain at home on Thursday. Remember that your partner is your ally — he or she is on your side — not against you. Don’t use the security of your relationship as an excuse to use your mate as a symbolic punching bag this week. That approach will cost you.
