The Weekly Love Horoscope For Each Zodiac Sign From October 17 - 23, 2022

Weekly Love Horoscope For October 17 - October 23, 2022

For this week's love horoscope, there is a lot of astrological activity which will have all zodiac signs feeling more committed to what is in alignment with them, resulting in things changing for the better.

It is often thought that commitment, especially in relationships, reduces freedom. However, that's not the true nature of commitment in love.

In love — when it is healthy, conscious, self-aware, and consistent — a greater commitment actually leads to greater freedom as well. When you commit fully to a relationship that is healthy, you are not losing anything but instead you gain so much more.

Juno, the asteroid that governs marriage, turns direct in Pisces this week casting light on commitment and its significance in your life and relationship.

At the same time, Saturn turns directly in Aquarius, lifting any restrictions, blocks, or pauses that have been in place for greater reflection and learning.

Added to the passion and intensity brought on by the Sun and Venus both moving into Scorpio, it is a week of fireworks.

There can be a bit of adjusting as you are now feeling ready and able to move ahead in your relationship, to make important decisions and follow through on them but ultimately it will lead to you not only being more committed in love but to yourself as well.

When you trust yourself to commit to what you love, you also are committing to creating a life that you love.
