The Moon plays an important role in this week’s horoscope. Look out for clashes in your relationship and underlying feelings of anger, but look forward to a desire to get things done and lots of energy. Express.co.uk reveals the daily horoscope, star sign reading, astrology and zodiac forecast for October 12.
The Moon is in Capricorn today and it is in the First Quarter Moon phase.
Cafe Astrology said: “The Moon continues its transit of Capricorn all day, and the First Quarter Moon is exact tonight when the Capricorn Moon forms a square to the Sun in Libra.
“There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take action.
“Shortly after, we become aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error.
“It’s a time of stress, but it’s the kind of tension that motivates us to make changes.
“Relationship and material goals tend to clash, causing some pressure or anxiety.
“Even so, transits today help us find a balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively.”
Mercury is also reacting in a challenging way to the Moon, and it’s in Retrograde.
The astrologer at Tarot.com said: “Storyteller Mercury, still retrograde, similarly gets smacked by the Moon, so we may wonder how far back into the past our difficulties stretch.
“Still, when innovative Uranus nudges Mercury, we can start to form a new narrative.
“As Uranus also makes a harmonious trine with the Moon, we can move forward by staying grounded in our physical experiences.”
Mercury quincunx Uranus from Sunday to Thursday can cause your mind to become extremely active with so many new and different ideas, Cafe Astrology said.
The astrologers said: “Skipping from one thing to another so quickly can make it hard to remember things.
“Nervous anxiety is possible early in this weekly horoscope, especially if you are busy and feel rushed.
“So try to slow down if you need to concentrate on important matters.
“On the positive side, you can intuitively find answers to nagging problems.”
