October 23, 2021

Passion, reignited! Today, the stimulating Sun leaves Libra and your restful domestic quarters and blasts into Scorpio, your fifth house of amour and glamour, until November 22. You'll have more dynamic magnetism than you’ll know what to do with, so try everything! Single? Flex those flirting muscles, even if you’re just in training. You’ll know if someone’s the real deal pretty quickly. Attached? This monthlong transit will stoke the embers and remind you why you fell for your S.O. in the first place! With your ruler, the moody moon, in your secretive twelfth house on Sunday, something might be bugging you, but you can’t put your finger on it. What won't help is trying to THINK your way through this because whatever's going on is probably emotional. Did you say something you regret—or did someone hurt you, intentionally or otherwise? Rather than dwell on the details of the rift, allow yourself to feel the sadness in your body. Sometimes simply connecting to the underlying emotion is enough to gently release it.

What is in store for this week?

A few dreamy transits will leave us with our heads in the clouds this week—but we'll all want to come back to reality for a romantic weekend. Here's your weekly horoscope, from the AstroTwins.

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.

What does it mean to be a Cancer?

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac (June 21–July 21), and it's represented by the crab. A cardinal water sign ruled by the moon, Cancer (called Karkata in Vedic astrology) energy is emotional, homey, and comforting. Here, we'll dive into the personality traits of Cancer and explore how this sign approaches life, love, career, and more.
