chinese weekly horoscope for october 2 - 8, 2023

This week, consider the world a collective whole and ponder your place. Are you a force of creation? Or are you a force of destruction? Neither is inherently negative or positive of themselves. After all, destruction is positive when a crumbling house must be removed for public safety, while creation can be negative if you create weapons of mass destruction. Ponder upon this question to help you find your place in the world.

The energy in the week of October 2 - 8, 2023, is asking all the Chinese zodiac signs to be more careful of who they keep in their company. Negative influences can quickly sidetrack one from a brilliant life. Sometimes, this negativity can manifest as extreme distraction that prevents you from focusing on the things that truly matter to you and yours.

The i-ching hexagram of the week is lake over fire (#49). Never confuse peacefulness with weakness. It's like youth fighting for their place in the world and trying to establish it through force and fire. As one matures and grows in wisdom, those tactics suddenly become foolish. Let's focus on the weekly horoscopes for each Chinese zodiac sign for October 2 - 8.
