On Sunday, October 2nd, a waxing crescent Moon stands in a tense square with Mercury retrograde. This unsavory aspect suggests an emotional reckoning with a retrograde-induced dilemma. Keep your heart and mind open as you approach what’s to come. With the Sun under Libra still in strong opposition to Jupiter retrograde, things might seem flighty or negative before they re-stabilize.
What might that mean for your sign today?
Be cautious of leaning too heavily into self-righteousness, Aries. No one is above accountability—not even you. While your emotions can be valid, your actions are not inherently so. That takes conscious effort, empathy, and patience.
Unfortunately, you can’t keep this steady routine and break out of your comfort zone. There isn’t enough time in the day. So, you must decide what’s more important: familiarity or freedom? No one can make the choice for you.
If it’s still bothering you, then it’s worth mentioning. These feelings won’t likely go away just because you ignore them. And with the other party being none the wiser, you can’t expect them to bring it up first. Speak up, Gemini.
The balance between the heart and the head is a tricky one to navigate. Lead with too much of the former, and you get reckless. But with too much of the latter, you become cold. The stars urge you to check your equilibrium.
This is a moment of acute emotional maturity for you, Leo. Allow these newfound insights to absorb fully into your psyche. You might feel a twinge of discomfort, but it’s nothing compared to the empathy and wisdom this will bring.
Be careful up there on your high horse, Virgo. While you might think you’re being helpful, others might consider it more judgmental. Don’t be so naive as to assume someone else couldn’t teach you something new.
What’s right and what feels good are not always the same. Thus, it’s important that you listen to your intuition as much as your emotional well-being. Even the happiest of honeymoon phases can end poorly—especially if it’s not meant to be.
As frustrating as this dilemma might be at the moment, rest assured you will come out stronger in the end. Keep your eye on this silver lining and try to roll with the punches as best you can. This will end eventually.
Blissful ignorance is like a delicate bubble that, once popped, can never reappear again. Stop trying to return to that state. The quicker you move on with the information you now know, the better you’ll feel.
Pay close attention to the things over which you nitpick your significant other, Cap. There’s a high likelihood that these are subconscious insecurities of your own. How can your partnership grow together instead of apart?
Despite your best efforts, it doesn’t look like this new obligation is going anywhere anytime soon. Rather than exerting all this extra energy trying to fight it, why not try to make the most of it? If anyone can do that, it’s you.
Miscommunications happen by accident all of the time. However, you can’t forget the very real possibility of manipulation. The stars don’t suggest you become a skeptical cynic. But they do recommend another follow-up to clear up any lingering questions.
