Your Weekly Horoscope for October 24, 2021

Alex Sandoval

With a relationship-focused Mercury retrograde and a fiery full moon now fully behind us, this first full week of Scorpio season leading into Halloween could feel like a welcome reprieve from all of that intense energy. Still, it won't be without its highs and lows.

On Tuesday, October 26, romantic Venus squares off against dreamy Neptune, making it tough to pinpoint any cold hard facts when it comes to love, beauty, and money. But you might actually enjoy the time-out from reality.

On Thursday, October 28, sweet Venus then forms a friendly sextile to lucky Jupiter, giving us plenty of fun-loving, romantic date night energy heading into the holiday weekend. (Related: What Your Venus Sign Can Tell You About Relationships, Beauty, and Money)

And Saturday, October 30, on the eve of Halloween, we get the two biggest moments of the week back-to-back: The confident sun in Scorpio squares off against taskmaster Saturn in Aquarius, making it likely that you'll feel weighed down by hard work or any kind of test or challenge thrown your way. And then, go-getter Mars moves into Scorpio, where it'll remain until Monday, December 13. The planet of action co-rules the fixed water sign, so it's content there and could be a boon for your sex life and ability to move the ball forward on big goals.

Want to know more about how you can personally take advantage of this week's astrological highlights? Read on for your sign's weekly horoscope. (Pro tip: Be sure to read your rising sign/ascendant, aka your social personality, if you know that, too. If not, consider getting a natal chart reading to find out.)

And from Saturday, October 30 to Monday, December 13, your ruling planet go-getter Mars will move through your eighth house of sexual intimacy, cranking up your desires, fantasies, and drive.

If you're attached, you and your partner could be talking about ways you can work together to boost your financial picture, and if you're single, you could be inspired by talking through big-picture goals with a colleague or friend. It's almost like foreshadowing for the fact that from Saturday, October 30 to Monday, December 13, action-oriented Mars in your seventh house of partnership fires you up to pair up with a friend, S.O., or colleague to get the ball rolling on a shared goal.

On Tuesday, October 26, social Venus in your tenth house of career forms a tense square to dreamy Neptune in your sign, and it could be tough to judge what's real from what's imagined when it comes to a major professional project.

This moment can be an opportunity to explore and learn while addressing your hottest desires.
