We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekly horoscope for the week of October 3-9.
Mercury (communication, ideas) finally leaves Virgo this week (October 7) and steps into Libra which should help us to improve our skills in diplomacy and fairness. One of the biggest superpowers of Mercury in Libra is being able to see both sides of an argument or situation without allowing emotion or personal biases to cloud its judgement. Under this transit, we'll be asked to do the same if we want our plans and schedules to move as smoothly and as quickly as possible, or if we need to get a point across. This skill in diplomacy and establishing balance will come in handy especially as Mars (aggression/passion) and Pluto (power) get into a few planetary scuffles this week which could have us taking ourselves more seriously than we should.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
