Sweeten your truth serum with a dose of compassion this Saturday. As the moon clashes with Venus in outspoken Sagittarius, your “helpful feedback” could come across as an unintentional low blow. Try to put yourself in the other person's shoes before you step on that soapbox or launch into a "what you NEED to do…" diatribe. If you find yourself on the receiving end of self-righteous preaching, politely but firmly excuse yourself. On Sunday, the Libra Sun squares off with shadowy Pluto. If you're about to take a partnership to the next level, you may realize there are matters that need to be addressed first. This could be anything from settling a tired old argument to something more serious, like resolving issues from your childhood that still interfere with intimacy. It's worth investing the time and energy into healing, Aries. You'll feel lighter once you've shed that baggage.

What is in store for this week?

This week's astrology forecast calls for us to work together and find common ground. Here, the AstroTwins break down what they're seeing in the stars.

What is in store for this month?

Back to the future and remixed again? October 2021 will bring us the end of several months-long outer-planet retrogrades (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto) and the inconvenience of messenger Mercury's backspin until October 18. Translation: Your Q4 plans are not quiiiiite ready for a full liftoff until the back half of the month.

Postpone the peace talks—or prepare to go back to the drawing board a few times with your counteroffers. Yes, it's Libra season, normally a time when everyone's agreeable and cooperative. But this year, Mercury is retrograde in Libra, the sign that rules relationships and harmony. All things related to technology, communication, and forward momentum here can get scrambled and stalled. Even the kindest apology note could be misread as fighting words. 

On top of that, this year's Mercury retrograde brings a special plot twist because Mars is also in Libra until October 30, its position of "detriment." When the planet of war is in the sign of peace, well, it's no surprise this weakened placement gives mighty Mars—and the rest of us—a Samson complex. People pick the wrong battles and create deeper divisions, or they just don't have the energy to fight.
