TODAY’S HOROSCOPE: Saturday, October 12, 2019


You may be battling wild impulses at times today, dear Aries. Whether you fight them off or give in to them, there is a need to keep perspective now. Feelings of being restricted may be at the heart of sudden desires and whims. There can be disruptions or discontent continuing today that help to reveal those things that need refreshment and change, or perhaps matters that need to be left behind. Life could be a little more chaotic than usual, but there are lessons to learn, mainly through others. There may be a twist of sorts that keeps you on your toes, or you are discovering or rediscovering desires and interests. Insight into your finances or something in your intimate, inner life can happen now. The Moon enters your sign today, further exciting your senses and emphasizing your emotions. You’re also quite ready for a fresh start, and tomorrow, a Full Moon will take things to a new level.


Feelings of being caged in can lead to emotional impulsiveness at times today, dear Taurus. And, discontent with the status quo can lead to abrupt actions or sudden reactions. You can experience unusual attractions, and through the events and emotions today, you see yourself and your relationships (or a partner) in a brand new way. Try to discern between true, honest desires and mere whims. You’ve been enjoying and embracing the desire for company these days, but today, you’re not quite sure if you want to express your independence. Your need for freedom and autonomy is also strong, and it may be provoking some tension right now. Changes are necessary for your growth, and today’s transits have a way of stirring the pot just enough to see this. Tomorrow’s Full Moon will also serve to illuminate feelings and senses that you’ve been brushing aside.


You’re not readily accepting if people or situations seem to be trying to pin you down or if you feel caged in today, dear Gemini. Watch for the temptation to throw something away and try to wait for things to blow over before you make the more significant decisions. This energy can be used constructively if you need a push to take action on an important matter. However, it’s probably best to sit with a feeling for awhile instead of reacting too quickly. Think up new ways to feel free, but to meet your responsibilities as well. With Venus opposite Uranus, you can feel particularly bothered by situations that don’t quite represent you or that you feel you’ve outgrown. Changes today may lead to new and improved or especially innovative approaches and methods, and may very well be healing after you’re beyond the initial inconvenience of an upset schedule. This is undoubtedly a time for going your own way with a Full Moon about to occur, but it’s best to process feelings before acting on them impulsively.


There are somewhat unstable energies with us on social levels today, dear Cancer, but these can help you free up some creative energy if you’ve been in a rut. Part of you may want to experiment, or you need to deal with others who seem to be doing their own thing without much regard for your feelings on the matter. In truth, you may not know whether you want to be close to someone or prefer some space. Emotions can be up and down, which may very well lead to mixed signals. Expect the unexpected today and avoid making quick decisions about matters that require some thought and consideration. If you’re feeling caged in, look for non-disruptive ways to enjoy a sense of being free and independent. Creatively speaking, it’s time to break out of a rut or to try something new and exciting. Emotions are building with a Full Moon set to occur tomorrow at the top of your chart, awakening the need to take charge.


The day’s energies can stir up restlessness, dear Leo, particularly if you feel restricted or in a rut. Displays and reactions are possible with Venus in opposition to Uranus, pulling you in two entirely different ways — one towards comfort and partnering, and the other towards independence and freedom of expression. It may be best to resolve to adapt to interruptions rather than fight them. Changes now can have a way of pulling up unacknowledged needs. We’re also leading up to a Full Moon, which is similarly revealing. Uncertainties about your work situation or the general direction you’re heading in life can impact your relationships now. If you feel that your current work or reputation no longer fits or represents you, you can feel some tension. Expect the unexpected today rather than cling tightly to your schedules.


A Venus-Uranus opposition can stir up all sorts of feelings, dear Virgo, mainly as it occurs just a day before the Full Moon. If you’ve been feeling caged in, pampered, or stagnant in your studies and relationships, you’ll want to do something to change it now. You may need to go through a mini-rebirth in these areas to keep things fresh or to help release some creativity. While this can pull you out of a rut, it’s best not to take things to the extreme. Aim instead to feel frustrations and see how things are when everything has boiled over. There is some volatility to the day, and plans may go awry. There’s also a tendency for you to clash with others regarding opinions and ideas. Incoming news can push you in a new direction, or you gain a perspective that opens new worlds for you, and there can be an epiphany involved.


Be open to making positive changes and improvements and avoid sudden moves with Venus opposite Uranus today, dear Libra. The desire for beautiful things or particular possessions that you’ve been considering is stronger now with Venus in your solar second house these days. Today, you might find someone opposes you, or changes in schedules send you in a new direction. Instead of giving in to impulses, the best way to use the energy of the day constructively is to find a new way to handle a financial matter. There could also be a surprise in the intimacy department. The trick is to think outside of the box since anything too ordinary or mundane will only serve to frustrate. Your enterprising spirit is strong–you only need an outlet for expressing it! Circumstances may seem to force a change if you’ve been clinging too tightly to habits and things. A Full Moon is about to occur, stirring up emotions further.


A Venus-Uranus opposition involving your sign can keep you on your toes, and perhaps a little rattled today, dear Scorpio. It’s a day when relationships require more space and freedom. There could be some tensions, and the desire to be free or go our own way is real, but expressing it can come out abruptly. With Venus in your sign, you may be looking for closeness or increased intimacy, while others seem to be chasing excitement or adventure. Or, a close friend or partner could be reactive or rebellious, introducing a surprise into your life today when you prefer to keep things status quo. There can be an unusual attraction or desire that comes on suddenly. Even so, out of disruptions or chaos, you may learn something new about yourself and your needs. A Full Moon will occur tomorrow, illuminating your feelings further. Do your very best NOT to be at the mercy of others’ moods. Use this time to get closer to your intuition.


The day’s energies can be a little temperamental, requiring more attention to freedom and space, dear Sagittarius, as we move towards a Full Moon, and Venus opposes Uranus. Changes in your schedule lead to a bit of chaos, but from the disruptions, valuable new directions or methods can emerge. While there is an unpredictable feel to this energy, keep in mind that change may be in order, and changes in schedules might steer you along a different path that ends up serving you well, perhaps even pulling you out of a rut. If you’ve been stagnating, this can be a time for releasing some creativity and doing something a little differently. Profound inner changes are brewing, and today you may not know precisely what they are, but you do know they’re needed! A Full Moon will occur tomorrow, leading to even more insights, and stirring the pot further.


With Venus opposite Uranus, you could find that you’re less tolerant of situations that seem to confine or bore you today, dear Capricorn, particularly on creative and social levels. There can be some unreliability to deal with, as well as distractions or changes of heart–you may need to expect the unexpected. Identify which areas of your life have become too routine or predictable, and then consider possible updates and adjustments that can benefit you. It’s not a time to stubbornly hold onto what’s familiar. In the middle of all of this, it’s best not to make sweeping permanent decisions, but it’s a great time to identify patterns that are no longer working for you. Consider that feelings emerging today and tomorrow (when a Full Moon occurs) may be a symptom of the need for change, and it’s better to be the one in charge of it all, ready to steer.


Today’s Venus-Uranus opposition reminds you of the need to make changes to areas of your life that have become too predictable, dear Aquarius. Tomorrow’s Full Moon will stir things up further, and new insights into your career or life path are likely. Try to tap into your intuition and take special note of things that seem to be coming out of the blue. A progressive and innovative approach is called for right now, but shouldn’t be pushed too hard or taken too far for best results. Aim to be flexible, especially since changes of plans or unpredictability in others can figure strongly now. There is part of you that is itching for a change of pace, but if you don’t recognize this within yourself, you might end up stirring up conflicts without really scratching the surface of your discontent. Try to identify what’s making you feel restless and make a small change, as this can be empowering. Transits now can serve to awaken you to a need for change and refreshment, and you may find it quite exciting to discover it all!


A Venus-Uranus opposition occurs today, and a Full Moon is also on its way, dear Pisces, pulling up strong and perhaps rebellious feelings. Patience and attention may be short, or there can be a tendency to pull away from situations that feel too limiting, stagnant, or stifling. Changes may bring in some fresh air and point you in the direction of new interests, even if at first they feel unwelcome! News can come in, or there may be a change of plans that sets you on a new train of thought or an original path. Aim to be flexible and to keep your mind wide open now to minimize frustrations. You have less tolerance for lifeless, dry interactions and subjects, and you can take small steps to bring back more excitement into your life. Freedom of movement is especially important to you right now, as any feeling of being tied to a particular place or routine can leave you feeling stifled.
