Horoscopes for Monday, October 22

Aries


Aries
While there can be some worries or delays to deal with today, dear Aries, conversations can help you out tremendously. Others can be sounding boards for business or monetary strategies. It’s also a time for recognizing problem areas in your thinking that need to be discarded and put behind you once and for all. Through problems arising now, you are learning how to prevent future ones! The Moon moves into your sign this morning, and personal or emotional needs can feel quite urgent. These can conflict with your practical goals right now, so you may need to strike a compromise. Tackling inner demons may very well involve some analysis now. You can benefit from uncovering secrets or investigating a matter more deeply. Verbalizing a fear may help take away its power.

Taurus

Taurus
The Moon moves into your privacy sector very early today, dear Taurus, which can leave you craving more peace and quiet. This can happen, but it may be easier to achieve the quiet than the peace now. Mind you, the problem-solving you do now can be involved but truly helpful. There is excellent energy with you for brainstorming or connecting with someone through the mind. There can be illuminating conversations with or about a partner. Today’s influences favor analysis and investigation. You’re open to facing matters and dealing with them. If you skim the surface of problems, you’ll pass by on the opportunities for discovery and growth. Through another person or a partner, you are discovering or redefining ideas and belief systems, and this is pronounced now.

Gemini

Gemini
Your ruler, Mercury, forms a favorable aspect with Pluto today, dear Gemini, favoring putting your thoughts into order and solving problems. You are motivated to be more effective and useful in your communications, and others tend to appreciate your insight, particularly people with whom you work or spend frequent time. Through thoughts and conversations happening now, light shines on matters that were previously confusing or hidden. Your powers of investigation are even stronger than usual. You can be especially sensitive to otherworldly impressions and the undercurrents around you. Ideas are buzzing today, particularly along work or health lines. The day is not without its problems and complicated feelings, but you can quickly get yourself into an empowered position.

Cancer

Cancer
Focusing on breaking out of old patterns of relating that haven’t worked well for you in the past is important today, dear Cancer. You can really get somewhere this way. Fortunately, you have divine energy with you for thinking or talking through problems and making meaningful discoveries. Mind you, the day tends to hold some challenges that lead to enlightenment. Seek out a new layer to a situation, especially a relationship or creative matter. Conversations with a partner, romantic interest, or children are especially helpful today. Discussions are in-depth or cover deep topics. If you need to discuss matters that may be considered complicated, this is a time for doing so.

Leo

Leo
The Moon moves into your free-spirited solar ninth house early today, dear Leo, encouraging broad thinking and aspirations, while a Mercury-Pluto aspect forming now favors honing in on the details. Ideally, you’ll find the right balance. While there can be more problems or delays than usual, there can also be helpful conversations with family, and you can break some ground on emotional and intimate matters — these things outshine the snags. It’s an active day for power thinking, planning, and strategy. You could arrive at a new commitment, plan, or set-up on the domestic front, and today is useful for figuring out the strategy behind it. You can be especially interested in strengthening or repairing family, home, or living arrangements now.

Virgo

Virgo
The need to crack down on your duties can weigh you down today, dear Virgo, but you’re also in a fabulous position to get on top of things and come out ahead. The day is excellent for breakthrough thinking, insight, and conversation, in fact. This is a great time for pursuing a learning endeavor, studies, or creative outlets. Mercury in favorable aspect to Pluto and your sign gives you an extra edge in your thinking, learning, and communicating. You are also expressing yourself with strength. Solving problems, finding patterns, and involving yourself in something absorbing and meaningful to you can be highlighted now, and you can learn something of real value. The Moon moves into your intimacy sector today, reinforcing a theme of pleasant intensity and discovery.

Libra

Libra
While there may be some listlessness this morning, dear Libra, the day is likely... see more to fill out and shape out well as it advances. In fact, it’s a fine time to talk or think things through and come out ahead. Problem-solving on the job or concerning money and business is enhanced right now. This is a time to rid yourself of the unnecessary, whether these are in your closet or brain! You can hone in on what’s good for you and what may only be cluttering up your life. It’s also a brilliant day for updating ideas and plans, particularly related to money or home matters, and for devoting special time to a project or studies. You are willing to put in the research, and others receive your well-informed communications positively.

Scorpio

Scorpio
The Moon moves into your work and health sector early today, dear Scorpio, and you’re especially interested in taking care of loose ends or business. Fortunately, your ruler, Pluto, forms a favorable aspect with Mercury, helping you out on these fronts. Use the benefits of this influence and aim to learn as much as you can from your interactions now. You’ll find it easy to hone in on the information you need – it’s your eagle eye in its glory! You have an ace up your sleeve today, and others tend to support your ideas. While there can be difficulties in getting everything running smoothly, you come out of the day ahead. Problems and delays are likely now, but so are solutions that help you handle today and inform you in the future.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
You are seeking out new meaning today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re likely to find it with a Mercury-Pluto influence. Mind you, there are a bunch of fussy aspects that can point to small problems, but you are quick to understand your priorities. You might learn new things about your inner workings, or reveal a secret that helps inform future good decisions. Being wrapped up in your own little world today can, in fact, be beneficial if it gives you the opportunity to think more deeply about a matter. While the Moon’s move into your sector of play early today is lighthearted energy, life is a little more complicated than usual now. Fortunately, you’re able to make sense of everything around you and to learn something valuable in the process.

Capricorn

Capricorn
A Mercury-Pluto aspect today helps you keep your cool, dear Capricorn, even though there can be more than the usual small problems today. It can point to an ace up your sleeve or new insight that enables you to make the right choices for yourself. You may end up enhancing a bond with someone through a conversation. Interactions with friends can be helpful and healing. Terrific ideas can come through teamwork, networking, a friend, or associate. Cementing a bond with a friend can figure strongly today, and it’s all in the way you communicate. You are especially aware, alert, and conscious of what’s going on around you, perhaps because you sense that others are taking you especially seriously.

Aquarius

Aquarius
You see things that escaped your attention in recent days, dear Aquarius. Support from behind the scenes can figure strongly today. In fact, information or perceptions today can empower you on both personal and professional lines. It’s a good time to discuss or ponder further professional and business-related matters. The use of strategy is especially important right now, as whatever comes up today tends to require extra thought and analysis, and is likely to work best via a slow, considered rollout. You may choose to share ideas selectively or to give only a little bit now and a bit more later. A Mercury-Pluto connection opens your mind to a new level or layer to a situation, and this helps you make good choices and draw accurate conclusions.

Pisces

Pisces
The Moon’s move out of your sign early today can help stabilize your feelings, dear Pisces. Even so, there can be some uncertainties that keep you from finding your center early in the day, after which it’s easier to sort things out. Investigating a problem more deeply from an intellectual standpoint can be what does the trick. Discussions may be enlightening, or your confidential conclusions are satisfying. You may be doing more observing than sharing, which can be a fine strategy for the time being. Even so, there can be enlightening discussions. There can be an opportunity to come to a greater understanding of a matter, a person, and even your life purpose. You could also be feeling more confident as a result of your involvement in a team, or for contributions you make to a cause or group effort. Digging s are raised, discussions can become heated, and there can be nervous excitement now. Enthusiasm is likely, but may go a little too far. Impulsive speech or other communications. Mechanical breakdowns are possible.

If You Were Born Today, October 22

Although you are personally magnetic, you have a manner that is slightly intimidating to others, making you a little hard to get close to. You give off the subtle impression that perhaps you don’t really need new people in your life. You do, although you tend to be somewhat selective when it comes to your social life, simply because your work is extremely important to you and you value your time. There is a no-nonsense directness about you that inspires trust in others, however. You give the impression of solidity, strength of character, dependability, and honesty. Although you are an idealist and visionary, you still manage to keep your feet on the ground. You don’t seem capable of doing things halfway, and that includes your relationships! You are quite focused on achieving in life. Famous people born today: Jeff Goldblum, Catherine Deneuve, Deepak Chopra, Christopher Lloyd, Franz Liszt, Annette Funicello, Carlos Mencia, Bob Odenkirk.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your mind is often working at top speed and perhaps ahead of itself in the period ahead! You find it easier to assert your desires and opinions. However, there can be times when you’re too hasty or impatient. You might often get frustrated if the results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals.

Even so, Uranus finishes its transit opposite your Sun in January 2019, and this can help stabilize your life tremendously.

As well, with certain projects, you’re willing to go all in, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas. This is a good time for serious and determined study and investigation as long as you’re engaged and motivated. You’re drawn to unexplored topics and ideas as well as looking for truths. You’re persuasive, too! You are inclined to do a lot of “digging,” researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. You are especially resourceful and determined.

You are, for the most part, optimistic, helpful, and ready to share your wisdom with others. It’s an excellent year for guiding, learning, and sharing. Big picture planning and thinking are in strong focus and quite excellent.

This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.

Excellent energy is with you for imaginative pursuits. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, too.

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

Certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship, enjoy stable energies in an existing partnership, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.

This is a year of initiative and energy, and it’s a period of powerful and enterprising ideas. Focusing will be the key to success. You are exploring new things, interests, places, and situations this year, and it becomes you! Do watch for impatience in both your actions and communications, however. You certainly have more courage than usual now, but rushing through things can unnecessarily complicate your life. Creativity blossoms in the period ahead.



2018 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it's a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It's a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and "chance" meetings are probable. Advice -... see more take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don't strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2019 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
