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 17-23.
Venus, the planet associated with love and money, moves in to jet-setting Sagittarius this week (October 18), which means our source of pleasure and well-being will come by following our biggest dreams, exploring new ventures, and new places with people who can teach us something brand new. In other words, when it comes to the same old, same old — ain't nobody got time for that. By the end of the week (October 22), Scorpio season kicks off, which brings an extra layer of intensity and passion to everything we do. Between Venus in Sagittarius and the Sun (confidence, power) in Scorpio the mantra now is to only do it (whatever that may be) if your heart is 100 percent in it.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
