Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs October 24th 2022
Return to that soul retreat
Link to a higher power
Patience is your superpower
Jupiter leaves your sign and re-enters your 12th of secrets and hidden truths this week. Your connection to what’s ‘out there’ – your spiritual and religious beliefs, the inner workings of your mind, self-help, Tarot and matters of the soul and spirit dominate. The answers lie both within you – your own soul sanctum, or you can ask a higher power for insight under the partial solar eclipse in your 8th which occurs the next day.
You know the drill, Aries. Eclipses cover up. Although this is a partial eclipse, it comes just before Mars your ruler, retrogrades in your 3rd of siblings, commerce and communication. It’s telling you not to rush, jump to conclusions or speak before you have all the facts. And just take it you don’t right now so your best option is to stay silent, listen to that inner voice and also be patient and wait for more to be revealed. Take it this is emerging and certainly will by the end of November.
Mercury’s arrival in your 8th means once it covers the eclipse shadow what you need to know will be transmitted. Don’t give in to needless fears or insecurities. Mars backwards could see you doubting your own ideas or direction your thoughts are taking. Like all retrogrades – it’s an illusion. But do ask yourself if someone else is spinning one. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mars retros until ‘23 in your house of communication. Coupled with an eclipse this week and Jupiter in your 12th of secrets – ask yourself what you don’t yet know, Aries. Possibly more than you imagine.

Protect your heart
Know you are enough
Every end contains a new beginning
If you’ve been in a love, love give it all away and gimme what I need cycle – to preface Take That, this week is a cosmic shout out to you to see if you are in fact, giving too much of yourself away. Especially if there is no promised land in sight. Or if it failed to live up to expectations.
The new Moon in your 7th always marks a new phase of relating. This includes not just relating to others but to yourself and who you become in relationships. Yes, we are all transformed when we enter into one. The very act of relating to someone else is an act of alchemy. We have to change in order to be in the relationship. To make room for that person. And hopefully they do the same for us. But when does change tip into sacrificing who we are? Or simply in our need to be loved and accepted, turn into giving ourselves away? Something given has no value. And Uranus in your sign has been updating your value system for quite some time.
This is all about Time’s Up. A fated ending and then a rebirth to follow. Do avoid seeking out that new mate this week however. Jupiter returning to your 11th on the 28th offers a second shot of big benefits via friends or your social networks so settle for that love instead. Mars retrograde in your 2nd (30th) tells you not only to keep a watch on your money but also to look again at how much of yourself you’ve given away needlessly. The big transformation occurring could simply be you putting a stop to that. Come from self-love not need, Taurus. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.
In a nutshell: It’s all about the love you share. And what you get in return, Taurus. But have you been simply giving too much and in the process, sacrificed your heart and soul? Treat love as too valuable to just give away.

Do your habits support wellbeing?
Fuel up to go the distance
Burn-out is emerging now as a serious issue. It’s taken a while for this to be recognised. Are you running on empty, Gemini? Maybe fuelled by energy drinks, coffee and fast food? No time in that schedule for you? Doing too much and being too many things to too many people but neglecting yourself? If you can put your hand up to any of the above, this week marks the big slow-down. Please do this before you stall completely.
We have a new Moon and partial solar eclipse in your 6th on the 25th. Coupled with Mars making a rare retrograde in your sign, this is about what you do on a daily basis – day job, studies, habits, routine, diet, exercise, mind, body, spirit. What’s hidden within the eclipse is something you do everyday or simply take for granted. Maybe the fact that you feel you can continue to be stressed, pushed to your limit, survive on take-away and have no time for you indefinitely. And with no blow-back.
You do have help identifying what this eclipse covers-up. It may require a change or even see one happen in order to make you slow down. Mercury rules your 6th and arrives in here on the 29th. It will be fast-acting and quickly show you what you need to focus on. Paradoxically this week, Jupiter returns to your career and success sector. Between now and December serious rewards could come your way. Here’s the secret to taking full advantage of that without the burn-out. This is your house of slow but steady progress. Mars retro says: Pace yourself, Gemini. Burn bright, don’t burn out.
In a nutshell: Mars retrogrades in your sign switching on amber lights when it comes to how you are operating on a daily basis, Gemini. Is it time to slow down and take care of the business of you? No more running on empty.

No more excuses
Be ready to explore further
Loves, significant others and the young ones feature
Along with your Leo neighbours, eclipses affect you more than other signs as your ruler is always involved. In your case, the Moon, in Leo’s case, the Sun. In the event of a solar eclipse, even a partial one, the new Moon covers the Sun and the lights are turned off in a key area throwing us into the dark. In your case with this week’s new Moon in your 5th this is around lovers, romance, children, babies, parenting, step-patenting, grand-parenting, adoption, IVF, surrogacy, your creativity or your right to shine. Just couple this with Mars retrograde in your 12th from the 30th and this is a big blind spot.
Naturally, the first thing I would say is that if being a parent is not on your agenda right now, you should take precautions to ensure this is not a possibility. Steer clear of those dating apps as that new swipe may not be all they appear to be. Tune in to your children if you have them and follow up on any gut feelings you have.
As for making excuses for people’s behaviour or swallowing half-baked ones served by others – that time may be at an end as Mercury will deliver the truth at some point between now and mid-November as it too arrives in your 5th from the 29th. Jupiter returns to its ruling sign/house in your chart on the 28th and between now and the end of the year will bring you solutions, opportunities and freedom as if by magic. Travel is also highlighted now, especially the long distance kind. Do pack alternative plans if holidaying this week however. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.
In a nutshell: Follow through on those instincts surrounding lovers and others – especially children this week. And as for someone attempted to serve you that reheated excuse – perhaps its time to serve them a dish of your own, Cancer!

Home matters this week
Shore up your security
Revise those connections
Home, family, living arrangements, buying, selling, leasing, renting property, real estate agents, landlords, your home town, council, state, country. Your roots and what sustains and grounds you. There’s no place like home or where you hang your royal crown when the new Moon appears in your 4th which is does this week. However – this one triggers a partial solar eclipse in here and your ruler’s shining guiding light is turned off.
Just like the Cancerians next door, an eclipse for you is a very big deal indeed. Much more than other signs as your ruler is always implicated in it. With a solar eclipse, even a partial one, you have a blind spot around one, some or many of the above factors. DO be wary now of entering into any new property dealings until we are well out of eclipse shadow. Mercury’s arrival in here from the 29th should show you what’s concealed between now and mid-November. This includes taking on that new roomie or ensuring those airbnb guests have 5 star feedback. That buyer may not have their finances in order no matter what they tell you. That property you like needs careful inspection.
Tune in to family members and take note if you pick up on anything amiss. A move or change may be on its way. Especially around the joint or shared home now Jupiter returns to your 8th this week. You also have Mars making a rare retrograde in your 11th house. Expect a shake and bake cycle around friendships, groups, clubs, networks, parties, organisations. True colours are coming out as is the truth about your sense of place and belonging. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope. Wait to make that move if you possibly can, Leo.
In a nutshell: What’s hidden behind this week’s eclipse in your 4th hits close to home. Is there a blind spot around a family member, your lifestyle or what underpins your security? Look close to home for the truth this week.

Don’t let the message get lost in translation
What’s not being said may hold the truth
Watch your public/professional persona
It’s not about what’s said this week, Virgo. It’s all in the sub-text or what is being left out. Actions, words and body language need to align. And if they don’t – this is a red flag under the new moon and partial solar eclipse in your 3rd this week. Just remember if you are talking face to face – experts tell us that between 73-90% of all communication is non-verbal. So, if you have that niggling feeling something is being omitted or even you are being out-and-out lied to, remember the body communicates the truth. As does your own internal liedar. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.
Ruler Mercury will hand you what is being lost in translation between now and mid-November when it arrives in its ruling 3rd on the 29th so do remain ready for those missing pieces of the puzzle to fall into place. This week also hands you two other major transits. The return of Jupiter into your 7th house of dynamic and dramatic duos, duets and double acts and Mars retrograde in your house of career, status and public image. Do be mindful at all times of the latter.
Your relationship status and the status of your partner also comes under the rulership of the 10th. You could even decide under this transit that something is no longer working for you. If so, leaving may be easier than at any other time. Do not engage in office gossip and craft your image carefully when dealing with those in positions of authority. Do not engage in conflict as you will not win. However, between now and the end of December, Jupiter could just hand you a love return or second time around opportunity. And one based on truth and transparency.
In a nutshell: Jupiter returns to your house of partnerships, marriage and long term loves this week. But an eclipse in your communication sector asks that you may attention to what’s not being discussed as much as what is.

Guard your values – and those purse strings
Where do the boundaries lie?
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . .
Something or someone could return from long ago and far far away now as Mars makes a rare retrograde in your 9th of foreign affairs of all descriptions, long distance travel, the mass media, big business, studies, the law and the great outdoors. If traveling however, do your due diligence before departure and avoid ‘dodgy’ areas. Do not take any risks and this includes with your money this week.
The reason being the eclipse in your money house at the time of the new Moon (25th). Yes, ruler Venus is in residence in here. Resist the urge to splurge. And also be mindful of sticking to your values and don’t allow others to compromise these. Eclipses conceal don’t forget. This is about all your resources – including love and your time. You need to ensure these are appreciated by those you give these too. Watch for subtle or not-so-subtle attempts to erode your self-worth. Mars is all about the boundaries. Enforce as needed.
What’s hidden within the eclipse will come to light as we progress into November thanks to Mercury leaving your sign and entering your 2nd on the 29th. The day prior to this, Jupiter hands you that touch of everyday magic to bring about opportunities, solutions and a freshly baked sense of freedom when it returns to your 6th until the year’s end. This hands you a final boost to create enhanced job/study/work satisfaction and frees you from that rut if needed. Or pushes you to create that for yourself. Heaven (or rather Jupiter) always helps those who help themselves. You’ll find whatever you need to kick-start a fresh phase to hand, Libra.
In a nutshell: Mars’ retrograde in your 9th could see something or someone return from far away. The question you need to ask Libra, is whether it (or they) enhance your sense of self worth?

Capture a vision for your future
Protect yourself from negativity
Bold new beginnings can’t be rushed – so don’t even try!
New beginnings and fresh starts await you but you may not be ready to begin or reveal them this week. Take your time now as you are in an important cycle of change, rebirth and transformation. It’s a process which cannot and should not be rushed. And sometimes we need to simply nurture our future visions in darkness and keep them to ourselves until they are fully formed and ready to bring out into the light.
That’s the message with the eclipse in your sign triggered by the new Moon on the 25th. There’s change in the air but even you may be unsure what form you want it to take. Goals sometimes need us to keep them to ourselves until they are attained. Our power to manifest can be diluted by revealing what we intend to do too soon. Or ruined simply by the negativity of others. So, this eclipse asks you not fall into this trap, phoenix. Only share with those you know will support you or hand you the very best inspiration and guidance once Mercury arrives in your sign on the 29th.
Two major transits also occur this week. First we have Jupiter returning to your fabulizing and soul shining 5th where it will remain until the end of December. With Juno, planet or marriage and long term promises direct in here, this may offer a future for romantic connections or a second time around opportunity to showcase your talents and be recognised. However, the changes and new beginnings deeply concealed within the eclipse will also be impacted by ancient ruler Mars retrograde in its ruling 8th. You may be faced with letting something or someone go between now and January in order to make room for something far better. Again, this may require you to keep something on the down-low under you are ready to make your move. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.
In a nutshell: That vision you have for your future may need you to spend more time simply nurturing in the dark. This week’s eclipse in your sign tells you: choose wisely who you reveal those plans to now.

Prepare for a hidden cycle of change
Where in the world do you call home?
Slow down for love
We are in major mutable weather now, Sag and the capacity for sudden change is going to be increased by the eclipse and new Moon in your 12th this week. It’s a change or shift you may not see coming. That doesn’t mean to say it may be necessarily negative. Just left-field as it occurs in your house of secrets, hidden truths and sadly, enemies too. Eclipses conceal and this house rules what we can’t see but nonetheless is real and exists. Mercury’s arrival in here from the 29th means that between now and it entering your 1st next month, you will be shown what this is. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.
All you can do now is watch and wait. In fact, not just during this eclipse period but continue this right up until early 2023. The reason being Mars retrograde in your 7th of partners from the 30th. I should not need to add that past loves, double acts and dynamic and dramatic duos will feature as could be any issues between you and another that are long standing. Especially if you share a house or co-habit. It is also sadly not the time to go seeking that new someone. Mars retro in here may trigger an intense attraction you feel compelled to act on. And then once direct leave you wondering what on earth you were thinking.
Ding dong – Jupiter calling! Your ruler returns to your 4th of home and property, family and living arrangements and will house-sit until the end of December. This adds to the mutable energy as you also have Juno direct in here from the 24th and Neptune also is residence. Between now and the year’s end look forward to upgrading your lifestyle, home, living arrangements, welcoming in new family members, enhancing your home or receiving benefits from it. Open the door wide and give Jupiter some living space.
In a nutshell: What is calling to you on a soul level this week, Sag? There’s a touch of mystery to this which could involve just where and what feels like ‘home’ to you. When it comes to love – don’t hurry it now Mars turns back in your partnership zone.

Stand and deliver!
Big up that message
Words + Intentions = promises to be kept
Promises will need to be kept now and what you say needs to back up your intentions. Get very clear when communicating this week. That big idea could also get revised as Jupiter returns to your 3rd. Juno direct in here rules marriage and those vows we make which cannot easily be backed out of. So, if you say you are going through with something you need to remember than a) it is probably lasting and b) you must keep your word. Therefore your best tactic is not to agree to anything unless you are 100% committed.
Of course, this rule applies to others too. You need to ensure what is on offer isn’t just an empty promise. Mars retrogrades this week in your 6th of everyday work and responsibilities. Pace yourself above all and don’t rush. But work commitments need to be honoured. If a new job is on offer for you courtesy of Jupiter, do ensure you are clear about the deliverables and that you can meet these. And that your role/duties are clearly defined.
This week ushers in a new Moon and partial solar eclipse in your 11th of contacts, connections and social circles. Even a partial eclipse represents a cover-up of some kind. If a name or even an entire group suddenly springs to mind, do hold that thought. Usually the new Moon in here enhances your social life or sees you setting new goals. Beware friend bombing, look to existing connections for continued resonance and press pause on goal ignition. You can rely on Mercury to hand you clarity around baes and besties (or frenemies), between now and mid-November. Keep one eye on what you need to do and the other on who you know this week.
In a nutshell: An eclipse in your house of friends and the future draws the line between who is on your dream team and who is just along for the ride. Words and intentions need to fuse now. In personal matters and in business – stand by what you say.

Baby, it’s hot on the outside – but is it just lukewarm within?
Colour by numbers for career progress
Are the details right on the money?
Don’t hurry love now Mars retrogrades in your 5th this week. This is a long retrograde which will last all the way into ‘23. If you begin a new relationship now, this asks you to slow down and take time to get to know the real person. Not the hot as Hades packaging.
The new Moon in your 10th this week triggers a partial eclipse in your status and career sector. Whatever you do now, you need to remain aware of your public and professional image at all times. Reputation for you is everything now. If interacting with or doing business with people in positions of authority or who have the ability to say ‘Yes’ do ensure you are coming across as someone who can be relied upon to keep their word. And do while you are at it, check the other party’s credentials too. Especially if you are going for an important meeting or interview. This is not the time to colour outside the lines in your fabulous, unique Aquarian way. But to do things by the book. The ‘establishment’ this week paradoxically holds your best opportunities as does doing your best to come across as serious and committed.
You will be asked to stand by what you say now Juno heads direct in your 2nd and Jupiter returns to it this week. There are benefits to this and these include potential financial rewards. Mercury in your 10th points to agreements and offers. But be aware the full details of these may take until mid-November to emerge. You won’t be able to push or rush things in this area either. And neither should you once you have done all you can. If something doesn’t work out – it may all be for the best even if this isn’t apparent right now, Aquarius.
In a nutshell: Guard your reputation and when it comes to career matters, do everything by the book, Aquarius. The eclipse in your 10th warns against breaking the rules. The pay-off could literally be bankable.

Channel that restless heart
Know your route – and your destination
Ancient ruler Jupiter returns to your sign this week giving you one final soul boost when it comes to your image, look, appearance, style and personal brand and message. Take it that others will take notice now. And any enhancements you make should have lasting impact thanks to Juno direct in your 1st.
This week also hands you a new Moon and a partial solar eclipse in your 9th. What is Jupiter’s ruling house in your chart. This overshadows any dealings with people overseas, travel (both long and short haul once Mercury arrives in here on the 29th), studies, religious beliefs, the law, the mass media, outdoors and large animals especially horses. This is also your house of luck and gambling. So, don’t take any chances now as the odds may not be in your favour. If travelling, there may literally be something you don’t know about your journey. Either the trip itself, your destination or the reason behind why you are going. Do be aware of this.
We are now in big retrograde weather with not only your sign containing both your rulers (again) and Juno, but Mars in Gemini and your 4th. You know Mars is not a happy houseguest in here. It doesn’t do tea, crumpets and cosy blankets. Retrograde from the 30th it could make you restless and try your patience. With those you live with, family members or just make you feel your home or space is constrictive. Channel any cranky-pants restlessness into DIY tasks or simply spend less time at home. Do let go of the small niggly stuff. Don’t make hasty decisions over moving. Looking ahead this retrograde takes you all the way into early 2023. You might want to plan the holiday period so you avoid too many family gatherings likely to trigger you. That way – peace at home and goodwill to all etc may just be possible.
In a nutshell: You get a big nutri-bullet of Jupiter juice this week as your old ruler returns to your house for one final makeover opp, Pisces. But an eclipse in Jupiter’s ruling 9th cautions you plan carefully if travelling and take no chances.
