Weekly Horoscopes for October 2 - 8
These horoscopes are written for and published by The Mountain Times, Vermont USA
October brings a month of change, especially compared to the past few months. While it’s nice to have a break in the weather, each of us have our preferences for what that break might look like. Blue cloudless skies and endless sunshine is one persons idea of bliss while someone else delights in a dreary raining day. This month begins with threatening storm clouds rolling in from a distant horizon. Deep down, you know what this storm is about. Where in your life have you been going along to get along and quite frankly, you’ve had enough? Where have you buried your head in the proverbial sand and not taken action on the things you know you should have? You see, this month, you’ll see a lot of click bait about eclipses on the internet. But if you sit with the above metaphorical weather update, you’ll get a sense of what you’ll be dealing with. For some of us, it will barely be a blip on the radar, while for others, the inevitable outcomes from the past few months will reveal themselves. This week, past action you took or didn’t take, may bring up feelings of anger, bitterness or resentment. Events this week will indicate what Octobers eclipse cycle offers.

We do a lot of things in love to keep the peace. It’s the turning of a blind eye, swallowing the words we want to speak, going with the flow because it just feels… easier. However, if you avoid battle, you end up in war within yourself and that is never a great feeling. This week, you may need to hash things out with someone else in a professional or personal setting. It won’t be easy, but necessary. Start your journey in learning astrology. Contemporary Astrology Program starts November 1!
Jupiter in your sign has been a boon for blessings and benefits. Perhaps you’ve been living some of the good life too. Treats, indulgences and living large have their way of catching up with you.

Social media is little more than the projection of people’s “perfect” lives. “My world” or “my everything” can leave you feeling lessor than and wondering why you don’t feel the same way.

We all carry habits and attitudes that we would be better off letting go of. You’re no exception. Right now, you need to let go of something or someone. Old ways don’t open old doors. Let go of any past pain, anger or resentment too. Carrying old emotional baggage into your future won’t do you any favors neither. Embrace some healthy selfishness and do what you want to rather than attempting to keep the peace. Start your journey in learning astrology. Contemporary Astrology Program starts November 1!
More often than not, it’s the way we think about a problem is worse than the problem itself. This week, you’re encouraged to let go of anything that is taking up rent free space in your mind.

Your warmth and optimism can be so attractive. People may flock to you and enjoy being in your company. That said, not everyone who smiles at you is a friend.

How much oxygen you choose to give that is totally your call. Less is probably better though. Start your journey in learning astrology. Contemporary Astrology Program starts November 1!
It can feel like an anticlimax once you reach a goal or outcome and it didn’t turn out the way you hoped. This may be the case in a career situation this week.

The choice is always yours. Start your journey in learning astrology. Contemporary Astrology Program starts November 1!
You’re being encouraged to explore your philosophical or spiritual life. This means that as new horizons open – either metaphorically or literally, you may have to cut ties with all that you were taught or told. It won’t be easy, but necessary. Go somewhere different.

If you can do something this week that would ease any financial discomfort, then do it. Call your bank and negotiate your interest rate. Change utility companies. Pay down some debt if you can.
