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 10-16
There may be some fireworks this week as the Sun (power) and Uranus (breakthrough, surprises) stand off in a tense opposition with each other on October 15, just before meeting up with a fiery, impulsive, and aggressive Full Moon in Aries on the 16th. Between Uranus and the Full Moon, the energy this week may feel electrically charged as we're pushed to examine and redefine what personal freedom means to each of us. However, while the Libra Sun is in the mix, our biggest challenge will be how best to put our own needs first without trampling the needs of others.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook each Monday at 4 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
