Horoscopes Monday 2nd October 2023
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Something on your mind, Aries? As messenger Mercury opposes escapist Neptune, you might prefer to forget about it rather than tackle it head-on. And perhaps just for now, this is not a bad idea. Rather than have this on a loop 24/7, this dreamy aspect encourages you to lose yourself in an inspiring movie or to go somewhere beautiful, giving you a chance to feel more at peace.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Need to hold a key conversation? If you put too much pressure on yourself to get it right, you might never get around to it. If you can leave it for today or even for a few hours and link up with friends, family or get involved in other activities, something may shift. As Mercury moves to align with Pluto tomorrow, you'll snap too and will know exactly what to say and how to say it.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The planets are showing up at various points around your chart, so your focus could be scattered, and you'll be interested in many things. Even so, with Mercury your ruler opposing dreamy Neptune, you might find it even more difficult to concentrate on crucial details. If you need to do some brainstorming that's fine, otherwise read the small print on deals or contracts carefully.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
This is a day when your brain may feel like spaghetti, and it's difficult to think straight. It's down to the planet of talk and thought facing off with ethereal Neptune across your communication axis, so things might not be as they seem. Tomorrow you'll be far more on the ball, but for now focus on those things that aren't too complicated and don't require too much thought.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
With Mercury in your money zone, a project or job can be claiming a lot of your time and attention, and you may be heavily invested in the way it pans out. If so, keep tempting thoughts out of your mind if they encourage you to cut corners or find a quick fix, especially with ethereal Neptune in the mix. Do your best Leo, and your efforts will be noticed by all the right people.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Others may think nothing of interrupting you to ask for help or advice. Even if you're ready to reach out and assist, you could be busy for some while if you give in to each request. Encourage them as gently and firmly as you can to come back later at a time more convenient for you, Virgo. Otherwise, your horoscope suggests you might never get your own plans and projects started, let alone finished.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With dreamy Neptune shimmering in your lifestyle sector, sticking to a routine may not be the easiest thing. Sparkling ideas and impulses can lead you to change your mind and try something else that appeals to the imagination. You might be drawn to explore spiritual activities such as yoga or meditation, or to get involved with creative projects that involve your natural skills.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Watch out for the possibility of mixed messages, as with Mercury opposing Neptune, you could inadvertently cause some confusion. This influence can mean you're sensitive to other people's vibes and may be trying hard to say the right thing so as not to offend. It might send the wrong signals though, so being tactfully honest will be your best bet and help to avoid muddles.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Not sure what to do? You may keep changing your mind, especially if this relates to a business or career issue. It's also possible you'll make one choice and then feel it's the wrong one. You might want to wait, Archer. With Pluto on the field tomorrow, you'll get a better sense of what's best for you. Today you could wander into a sea of confusion and get lost there for a while.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Travelling today? It's one of those times when your GPS could take you down an impossible route and you get lost or stuck. There might also be delays if you're travelling by boat, rail or air. This is a temporary issue, and tomorrow you'll be much better prepared for any eventualities. For now, double check everything and give yourself plenty of time whatever you're doing.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Don't complicate matters Aquarius, instead try to keep transactions as simple as possible, as you'll avoid unnecessary mistakes. This may be especially so where finances are concerned, as the easier the exchange, the less room there is for a mix-up that might take a while to resolve. As Mercury also aligns with intensive Pluto, you'll be wise to trust your instincts on a key issue.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
The stellar map suggests you might prefer to give someone the benefit of the doubt or accept them at their word. Furthermore, with dreamy Neptune in your sign, it can be easy to attribute this person with traits or qualities that they may not have. With piercing Pluto also in the mix though, it could be a friend who encourages you to be cautious rather than too trusting, Pisces.
