Happy’s Zen Horoscope (10th October – 16th October): Just keep swimming

Saturn direct in Aquarius favors moving forward. As long as you are prepared to up your game and work for it, you will start to feel like you are making some serious headway.

Once you get started, you’ll find it’s easier than ever to progress and stick to tasks and projects. The only friction you may feel with Saturn’s retrograde is if you don’t. So hold yourself accountable, push through any obstacles that may initially stand in your way, and bring structure and lasting value into your life. Remember that things won’t kick start themselves, you have to work for it. But it will be worth it, I promise. 

Libra

You are working towards a new paradigm, and this is going to require some teamwork. So keep working for the bigger picture and you can’t go wrong. Money may be at the forefront and you may ask yourself what are you willing or not willing to spend on.

You may feel reluctant, or hesitant. So if you have any money decisions to make, keep it aligned with the bigger picture/goal. If it’s genuinely going to help to achieve a long-term goal, then chances are it’s a yes, so don’t delay things unnecessarily. 

Scorpio 

There is an entrepreneurial energy to things this week. Be brave, be courageous. You might be new to some things, but you have the passion and commitment to see anything through if you put your mind to it.

If you hear the calling to study something new, set to it. If you hear the calling to turn a dream into reality, ditto. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, and make every step forward purposeful and practical. 

Sagittarius 

Expect harmony, and expect happiness Sagittarius. Take a moment out to give thanks for the people in your life. Lead from the heart and do more of what you love. Trust your intuition.

If you’ve experienced any ups or down with anyone, professionally or personally, be the first to make amends, and pave the way for resolutions. Collaborations will run smoothly, and relationships will flourish as a warm glow of gratitude fills the air.  

Capricorn 

You know what is required to keep the momentum going. So don’t stop now. Willpower and determination are at the forefront this week, so continue to tap into your inner resources, to stay motivated and on top of things.

There is a lot that you want to achieve, and to do so, you know that you need to keep that fire burning, now more than ever. Think of it like a train that requires coal to keep running – keep adding fuel to your fire so you can keep going. 

Aquarius 

There is deeply personal and transformational energy to the week ahead. Starting over by letting go of the past is essential. There is a lot out there waiting for you, you just need a big breath of fresh air to reinvigorate you.

Say yes to change.

If you feel any hint of resistance, give yourself a little helping hand and say yes. Be open to what the future holds, feel good about stepping forward into a brand new world because it’s there waiting for you, you just have to say yes. 

Pisces

Be mindful of setting any unrealistic expectations for yourself or others – try to keep things grounded. Think about your leadership skills, and keep an eye on communication. When it comes to working within a group, regardless of what role you play, it’s important to work as a team.

Pull your own weight, as much as you expect others to pull theirs. If your team can see that you are fulfilling your role and that you are sharing the load without applying any unreasonable requests that you yourself wouldn’t do, things will run smoothly. 

Aries 

There is a nice little gift around the corner for all of your hard work to date. All of your experiences have brought you here, to a place of maturity and wisdom. Everything feels to be paying off. So enjoy it, expect ease, expect abundance.

For the Aries that are starting out on something new, you can do anything that you set your mind to, anything at all. With careful mapping, planning and effort, you will always achieve what you set out to do. 

Taurus

A good week for evaluation. Look to see what benefits your life, and more importantly, what doesn’t, so that you can change things around accordingly. If there is an area professionally that just isn’t working, it may be time to cut ties or let it go. This may open up the space for something new, or provide even more room for the things that are working to flourish even more.

On a personal note, if there has been a recent falling out with a friend or a family member, this is a good time to face it head-on and deal with it, so that you can all move forward happily again. 

Gemini 

Let’s face it, life will have its ups and downs, it’s not always easy. But it’s important to note that sadness or pain can provide the opportunity to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually. 

If you hold onto any sadness to the point that it becomes all that you are, you may miss out on the opportunity to grow.

Then again, maybe sometimes you just need a good cry, which is also okay, because crying is the first step in any healing process – it allows you to be gentle with yourself. So if you feel it, don’t hold back. Just keep learning, and keep moving forward. 

Cancer 

A good week for grounding yourself in a bit of reality. No doubt you have a lot of ideas floating around. You can have all the amazing ideas in the world, dreaming of this dreaming of that, but if you spend all of your time daydreaming, chances are that’s all you might end up doing.

So now may be the perfect time to choose one thing to focus on, really focus on, and take it to the next level – the planning stage. Remember, one step at a time. Now is the time to take that one step forward to achieve what will help you to realise your goal. 

Leo 

Nice week for romance, for being in love, and the kind of honesty that brings two people even closer. On a personal level, the energy of the week is served best by getting clear about who you are, and what you will and won’t stand for.

There are things that you will go on to achieve that can only be built with strong foundations, and when you are true to yourself, when you work with your strengths, this is you being your best self. This aspect of genuinity will bring everything together in a much more authentic, purposeful and meaningful way. 

Virgo

It’s a good time to think about control. Maybe you are micromanaging, making sure that everything is done just the way you like it, or maybe you are establishing boundaries, creating areas in your work or home life that are just yours, and yours alone.

Maybe you’ve already worked out how to maintain security and stability in such a way that you refuse to change things lest it messes with your routines.

Whatever the case may be, just don’t go overboard, do try to keep an open mind, and know that it’s ok to play it safe for this week. If you don’t want to change anything, don’t feel that you have to. Not yet anyway.
