Aries

Mercury is retrograding. This means you should expect delays, cancellations, and changes of weekend plans. Try not to be so precious about brunch reservations and remember that the only constant you can rely on is everyone flaking on you.

Taurus

Jupiter is entering your 11th House and she’s mortified by all the clutter. Use this month to throw away that which no longer serves you—broken iPhone chargers, take-out packets, and your 2022 vision board, which you abandoned faster than you could print and cut out that stock photo of a girl starting her own social media business in Bali.

Gemini

Well, well well, looks like you’ve found yourself at another fork in the road. Toss aside notions about what you should and shouldn't be doing and go with your all-knowing gut, which at the moment is trying to digest the last of your summer Aperol Spritz addiction.

Cancer

Despite the advice of your closest friends (and your therapist) this is a time to reminisce, realize, and rejuvenate. Whether we want to admit it or not, the past is a road map to the future, and whether that map is littered with green lights or Stop signs, the answer is often right behind you.

Leo

Bask in the beauty of delayed gratification, and know that this month’s push of work-life-imbalance will lead to a winter vacation away from your family. This is your time to pinch your pennies and cancel your “free” <i>Paramount+</i> trial, which automatically renewed again. Mexico in December awaits you.

Virgo

Your moon is in Chaos and you’re feeling a bit shaky, but that’s good. The universe is practically begging you to let go of the railings and move with the motion of the ocean. The tide is high— you might as well take a hit too.

Libra

You might be feeling a bit distracted, but trying to tame your thoughts is the wrong approach. Stop exerting so much energy and let your thoughts clear out naturally like clouds after a thunderstorm. Beyond them is sunlight, clarity, and then a whole new crisis.

Scorpio

You’re not like other people this month, Scorpio. You’re much, much worse. Lean into your esoteric side by participating in some harmless dark tourism: go on a cemetery tour, eat bugs, drive past your ex’s new house and pretend you don’t even care. Indulge in your emotional complexities.

Sagittarius

Despite your tendency to divide and conquer, this is the time to remain still and venture inward. If that feels too hard, might I suggest not going out on Tuesdays? Or at least staying in the city one weekend this month?

Capricorn

It might feel safe and familiar to go through this world alone, but a little company never hurt anybody. But to be clear, we don’t mean start another business. Get some new friends.

Aquarius

Try to keep your spirals at bay, Aquarius, by reminding yourself that none of your friends can be mad at you if they simply don’t expect anything from you anymore. Keep your chin up—at least you won’t be invited to any Friendsgivings this year.

Pisces

Let things that have soured expire in peace and float downstream for the next few weeks. There’s no need to hang onto toxic patterns, dying relationships, or jars of marinara that you’re pretty sure haven’t gone bad but it’s hard to say. Throw it all away and start anew—it’s never too late in the year to reinvent yourself (or clean your fridge).
