Hi, Queen! Your weekly horoscope for October 11-17 2021 has arrived. October’s coming along swimmingly—is it not? With the abundance of air, it’s felt (mostly) smooth sailing. This week is no exception. On Wednesday, Venus in Sagittarius begins a sextile to Saturn (planet of limitations) in Aquarius, slowing the roll of an otherwise flighty placement. Sagittarius asks that we seek out novelty wherever the planet of love beckons, but the Saturnian energy reminds us to come home when the adventure’s done.
The sweetness continues with the sun’s (planet of ego) trine to Jupiter (planet of expansion) on Friday, implying positive feelings surrounding the self and ego. It’s additionally an ideal day to jump into a new field of study, so seize the day!
Unfortunately, no week is without its more tumultuous astro-weather. The Libra sun’s square to Pluto in Capricorn on Sunday acts as the week’s raincloud, forcing some painful realizations and struggles. Sure, it may be a little rough, but thunderstorms don’t last forever.
