These are your horoscopes heading into the weekend of Friday, October 15, 2021.

Libra: Be careful not to assume other people are drifting away from you or pushing you away. Acknowledge that people are constantly evolving - including yourself - and they also have a lot on their plate. Keep your head up and focus on being present and grateful for the positive things in your life right this moment.

Scorpio: You're allowing past hurt feelings to keep you from forming genuine connections with other people. When you feel triggered by positive feelings say, advances from potential romantic partners, ask yourself when was the last time you felt that way...and who made you feel that way? Those negative feelings are not necessarily a reflection of the people that are trying to connect with you. Be present and take things at face value.

Sagittarius: Authenticity and honesty with yourself is a major theme for you this week, as people demand more from you in a way that doesn't feel like you're being true to yourself. Protect your energy by saying "no" to opportunities or demands that don't allow you to live authentically, and don't you dare feel guilty about it.

Capricorn: You're being pressured by immediate family members to surrender to what feels like outrageously selfish demands. Instead of immediately pushing back on everything that's being asked of you, first ask yourself what imbalance between work and personal life is happening for them to behave this way towards you. Reprioritizing on your part may need to take place here, so you can show up in ways you haven't been lately.

Aquarius: People will be very demanding of your time, but if you just don't have the time and energy they require, it's totally OK to put your foot down and set a boundary. No need to feel guilty.

Pisces: You're getting SO close to closing in on a new job or deal you can almost taste it. With Mercury continuing to be retrograde for another week (and a brief shadow period after that), you can expect delays. As frustrating as that is, those delays are actually a GREAT thing. During any phase of Mercury Retrograde, you wanna do your best to hold off on signing contracts or STARTING anything new. Of course life "happens" and you may need to move the process along, though; if that's the case, make sure you read the fine print and all the details in the contract before you sign it.

Aries: Whether you realize it or not, your words this week pack an extra punch that leaves people feeling hurt. Be ready to acknowledge this, listen to the other person's side of the story, and correct yourself by apologizing accordingly. Everyone is wrong sometimes - do right be saying "sorry."

Taurus: Nothing can prepare you for moments like this where everything seems to be falling into place. If it feels too good to be true, start to focus on green flags instead of looking for red flags.

Gemini: Those around you are beginning to notice your sour attitude towards them. You may not care, but others certainly do. You'll need to either learn how to suppress your sassy comments a little better or put on a happy face and fake it til they believe there's no ill will towards them.

Cancer: You're feeling extra sensitive this week in your interactions with other people to the point where you're afraid of saying literally anything. Whenever you speak, others' reactions to what you say feel like some sort of personal attack. Recognize and always remember that first of all, it's not personal; second of all though, if their words are harsh, that's a reflection of how insecure they feel about themselves in that moment. Brush off the little things, but also make a point to stand up for yourself if they're being rude.

Leo: You'll realize that you need to take a new direction with a project you're working on, or perhaps a relationship you're in. As far as relationships go, this would particularly be a situation where you're (for example) in a romantic relationship that you feel is more worthy of being strictly platonic. Don't be afraid to move forward authentically, however that looks.

Virgo: You're feeling a bit lost in your direction in life, and it's feeling difficult for you to come out of this fog and move forward. Rather than seeing this as a challenge or setback, see this as an opportunity to rest, recharge, and reevaluate your next steps. By the time this fog lifts, you'll be ready to make your next move.
