Break the Chains and Kick Those Habits: Horoscopes For October 22-28
Old habits die hard. But sometimes we just gotta kill them off. This week, we’ve got the Sun entering Scorpio on Tuesday and a Taurus Full Moon on Wednesday. This Taurus Scorpio axis teaches us to go through the cycle of losing and learning to desire again. So, it’s time to play with fire a little and toy with our obsessions and carnal urges and burst through to the other side as a phoenix rising from the ashes. Dump those old habits that no longer do you good and come to peace with them.
The fire won’t consume you this week, but guide you on a path to self-revelation and balance. Instead of being overwhelmed by the element that is notoriously untamable, you will be in control. Embrace the heat and use it to your advantage.
Is there shame burning a hole in your heart? Do you regret something you did this past week or are you ashamed to admit that you’ve slipped back into those bad habits you once ditched? This might have you feeling lost and confused, like you just keep going in circles. Just remember dear Scorpios, that live runs in cycles and you are only human. All you need to do is take time to recenter and acknowledge the fact that you’ve fallen.
Now what? Sometimes you can’t get up on your own. Don’t be afraid to admit your trip up to someone that’s close to you. They can help you in more ways than you know. Maybe they’ve even been through the same thing that you have. Don’t lose faith in those around you.
You’re so used to looking at your life from above that you’ve forgotten what it’s like on the ground.

Now what? While you’re stirring up your current mentality, go ahead and take a gamble in your love life. Whether it’s telling your crush how you feel or giving your significant other a big surprise that you’re not sure they’ll like, this week is a good time to just go for.
Alright girl, it’s time to just chill. I know you always like to be on the move, but when was the last time you stopped and enjoyed the fruits of your own labor?

This is your full moon, so it’s time to take the power that’s yours. Don’t let anxiety or past memories put a curve in your spine.

This could loosen up your desire to have a tight grip on every situation you come across.
Now what? While you let loose a little, go ahead and let your flirtations get out of hand. You don’t have to go home with a date on the first night, but don’t be afraid to take things on a path that you don’t see the ending to.
You might feel like you’re backed against a wall with nowhere to turn, but soon you’ll find a tiny window that you didn’t know was there.

Drop that old habit of staying where people put you and start determining what holds you back instead of the other way around.
Now what? You can control who backs you down, but you can’t control everything. Take a careful look at what you can and can’t control and don’t let problems out of your reach consume you. It does no good to worry about things you can never change.
Our emotions can act like faucets and you might find that you’ve been cutting off the taps, Leos. Once you open those taps again you’ll find that love can come from all sorts of places.
