With the upcoming lunar eclipse in Taurus on Saturday, the week of Oct. 22 is set to bring new beginnings and endings in material matters. Since 2021, eclipses have occurred rapidly, bringing excessive change, good or bad. This coming week will finally put an end to this intense eclipse season, giving room to comfort and stability. With an eclipse-free season, all signs will now have the opportunity to ponder their goals and determine how to achieve them. 

Outside of eclipses, Scorpio season is set to begin on Monday, creating an atmosphere of emotional intensity. As Scorpios are known to be mysterious, fearless and sometimes irritable water signs, other water signs may feel more emotional during this season. With Scorpio’s passion for romance, love may be at a high, but watch out for new karmic relationships entering your life. Remain grounded during the coming week. 

For the week kicking off Scorpio season, here is some advice for each horoscope to be prepared for coming opportunities. 

Aries (March 21 – April 19) 🔥 

The eclipses may have caused your work to shift, whether that be in a positive or negative way. Trust that after the Taurus eclipse, your work will be more stable, and you will have a decrease in stress. Make sure to prioritize your well-being in regards to relationships and work as you will find comfort in self-care right now. 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 🪴

If you were considering admitting romantic feelings toward somebody, now is the time to do it. The Taurus eclipse allows for the release of emotions in a positive way, possibly resulting in a meaningful relationship budding. For you, this week is all about love, so it’s important to reflect and build on your current relationships. 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) 🌬

Prepare to have a sudden opportunity arise in work. This could be a promotion, a new job offer or a raise. Outside of work, prioritize your family, or those you consider family, by spending more quality time with them. You may have felt a bit of distance within your familial bonds, so it’s time to reconnect with them. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) 🌊

Spend the upcoming week redecorating a room or doing chores. As a water sign, it’s important to keep your home tidy and comforting, but you may find it difficult to find time to sit down and reorganize. You may find that “sprucing up” your place puts you in a better headspace to tackle future tasks.  

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) 🔥

You may have been feeling a bit more insecure and/or anxious than usual. If this begins to play into relationships or friendships, make sure to take a step back and understand the root of your emotions. With Venus trining Jupiter, you may feel the need to self-sabotage and/or “run away” from a situation, so be sure to decide if that’s truly what you want before you take action. 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) 🪴

You’re going to begin to feel more secure in yourself. The last year has been filled with challenges and obstacles you had to overcome, especially pertaining love and financial matters. With your improving self-worth, set boundaries for what you do and don’t want in a relationship. Don’t settle for somebody giving you less than 100%. 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) 🌬

As a Venus sign, the Taurus eclipse will impact you more severely than other signs. You may have a random urge to spend more money than usual, and as money is already not Libra’s forte, it’s imperative to keep spending to a minimum. It’s time to save more than is spent. Early-2024 may include travel and/or a large purchase, so it’s best to prepare now. 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) 🌊

With Scoprio season beginning, you will be on a high. Love and intimacy will flourish, and you’ll make new, beneficial connections. While your mood will be elevated and new people will be coming in from all angles, make sure to prevent any irrational decisions from being made. This week has nothing but positive vibes coming toward you if you stay out of trouble. 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) 🔥

Currently, work is a huge aspect of your life, and you deserve that promotion, raise or new job you want. Communicate your goals and show that you have the skills and motivation to achieve them. More likely than not, you’ll be successful in your attempts to climb the career ladder, and your bank account will be very appreciative of your efforts.  

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) 🪴

While many signs are advised to focus on themselves, you should put yourself out there. Meeting new people is important for your personal network, and the more you put yourself out there, the more your entire life will benefit. You may feel shy and/or anxious approaching new people, but you may encounter new love interests or potential good friends over this upcoming week.  

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) 🌬

The eclipse may be causing feelings of confusion regarding your entire life. Although you don’t particularly enjoy expressing your emotions, talking to a trusted loved one can ease some of your stress. You may even receive valuable advice on what to do regarding matters of the heart. It’s important to take a mental rest and focus on your emotional stability. 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) 🌊

It’s in your horoscope to be an overthinker, but recent astrology may have scrambled your brain even more. If you’re overthinking about your romantic pursuits, don’t fear, this week has the potential for emotional closeness between loved ones. Trust your intuition and allow yourself to be happy without the constant fear of things going haywire.
