Your daily horoscopes for Monday October 23, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Want more quality “just the two of us” time with someone in your life? Set the intention, clear out your schedule, and then get some dates on the books! As the luminous Sun plunges into Scorpio and your erotic eighth house today, your priority for the next month is increasing the passion and intimacy in your life. Give bae your full attention and commit to being as open and vulnerable as called for. Single? Resolve to not accept “good enough.” That sends the message to your subconscious AND the universe that you’re willing to settle, which you’re not!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Bring on the dynamic duets! For the next month, you’ll be more focused on “we” activities than “me.” The heat-producing Sun is blazing a trail through intensely focused Scorpio and your partnership realm until November 22. If you’re in a relationship, give it the TLC it deserves, especially if you’ve been letting it cruise along on autopilot. Getting to know new aspects of your beloved can deepen the bond. Single? Stay open to chance meetings. You can’t control everything, and you could bump into someone with serious potential.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
After a buzzy month of hosting the Libra Sun in your flirty, fun-loving fifth house, you’re ready to take care of the things that fell to the wayside while you were busy dancing (or whatever’ing) the night away. Today, el Sol beams into Scorpio and your administrative sixth house. You’ll be eager to tidy up and get organized and streamlined. From now until November 22, don your Captain Efficiency chapeau and declutter away. The sixth house also rules health, so use this four-week cycle to get back on track with clean eating and regular workouts. They’ll keep you sane as you juggle all the details at work!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Passion, reignited! Today, the stimulating Sun leaves Libra and your restful domestic quarters and unveils its glamorous side in Scorpio, your fifth house of passion and fame until November 22. You’ll have more dynamic magnetism than you’ll know what to do with, making it impossible for anyone to pigeonhole you as a “shy Cancer.” Bah! Single Crabs, flex those flirting muscles, even if you’re just in training. You’ll know if someone’s the real deal pretty quickly. Attached? This monthlong transit will stoke the embers and remind you why you fell for your person in the first place!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
The Leo Lair is where your heart and soul sing for the coming four weeks! As the Sun blazes a trail through Scorpio and your domestic fourth house, the most important decision you’ll make is whether to set a table for six or ten. (Or to just do a buffet-style movie night for whoever drops by.) Don’t overbook yourself, though, since there will be plenty of moments where you’ll just feel like a hermit. This cycle is actually a perfect excuse (if you need one) to get to work on a household project or, if a move is in the cards, to hunt for your next dream den.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Don’t sleep on the local scene! For the coming four weeks, you don’t have to traipse all over town—or the planet—to connect with like-minded (and fun) people. As the Sun beams into Scorpio and your third house of socializing and neighborhood activity, the best stuff is going on in your own backyard. Get to know the movers and shakers of your community. As a Virgo, you know the best ice-breaker is “how can I help?” If you’re working on a book, podcast or any sort of media project, this communicative cycle puts wind in your sails. Don’t overplan; the right message will come through once you sit down and start to flow.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Even as you sweep up the last crumbs of birthday cake, you’ll have another reason to celebrate: Today, the confident Sun blazes into Scorpio and your money sector, giving priority seating to all matters of finance and security. This is your annual phase to “balance the books” and get your fiscal affairs in order. Is more belt-tightening in order? Or have you been a good Libra and saved enough to treat yourself to that big-ticket item—or vacation—you’ve been squirreling funds away for? Between now and November 22, you could get more bang for every buck. Remember: Ultimately, money is still just energy.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Happy birthday to you! Today marks the kickoff of Scorpio season, your annual four-week cycle to let people in on the best-kept secret in town: YOU! For the past month, you may have gone a little underground (literally or figuratively), gathering the strength and clarity to move into this new phase. If your energy’s been stagnant, this solar power surge should recharge all your batteries to full capacity. If you’re too shy to express yourself, warm up by embracing the spirit of novelty. Pulling on an intriguing thread could unravel a whole new obsession before the Sun moves on to Sagittarius on November 22.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
3, 2, 1, downshift. If you’ve been running on fumes rather than high-grade fuel, give yourself a chance to properly recharge. As the Sun dips behind the scenes into Scorpio and your restful twelfth house until November 22, release FOMO and be highly selective about where you spend your time and energy. You may naturally gravitate toward quieter, focused pursuits and prefer to spend more time at home or with a few close friends. Enjoy the slow ride, and don’t try to force any roses to bloom until they’re ready. Whatever you create behind the scenes will be ready for a big debut in four weeks!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Over the coming four weeks, you may decide that quality, not quantity, is your goal with your inner circle. Today, the Sun swings into Scorpio, which rules discernment and trust. During this monthlong transit, your eleventh house of groups and friendship gets activated, helping you see certain affiliations with fresh eyes. If someone’s been pushing your buttons or testing your limits, it might be time to cut ‘em loose. Or if you’ve been keeping a certain person at arm’s length, you might be ready to get to know each other better. A budding alliance awaits!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
You’re famous for coloring outside the lines, but you’re hardly a rebel without a cause. And starting today for the next four weeks, you may practically obsess over reevaluating some career goals. Are you still enchanted by the path you’re on? What needs to change? Do you need more structure? Less? As the Sun blazes through soulful Scorpio, you can follow a new purpose or reconnect to the current one, only with more passion and intensity than ever!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday October 23
Are the same four walls closing in on you? Today, as the bold Sun jets into Scorpio and your ninth house of travel and adventure until November 22, a sense of wanderlust could wash over you like a tidal wave. This annual transit can light a fire in your belly and prod you to do something—anything—outside the norm. If you can get away in the next four weeks, that might satisfy the yearning. Can’t pull a disappearing act? Anything that expands your world or even just your mind will be the next-best thing!
