Your Horoscope For This Week — Oct 05 2014

Illustrated By Emily Forgot.
Change is inevitable, but it doesn’t always come gently, stargazers. This Wednesday, a powerful lunar eclipse in Aries will push us into the progress zone — kicking and screaming or not. Let #nogutsnoglory be the hashtag du jour. Aries is the zodiac’s warrior, after all, and the fearless trendsetter of the skies.
Combined with the forward thrust of an eclipse, we could look back on this week as a major turning point or milestone. Since this is a lunar eclipse, it arrives with a full moon. Flip back to March 30, 2014, the date of the corresponding new moon in Aries. The seeds planted then are ready to be harvested.
Relationships could hit a rocky patch, thanks to Mercury retrograde. The messenger planet is driving in reverse from October 4-25. On Friday, it scoots back from jealous Scorpio into romance-addict Libra. The green-eyed monster may be leaving town, but the players are rolling in. A good rule of thumb for dating this week: Actions speak louder than words.
