If you want to know how a society really thinks, look at the way they describe their world in words. That's why the word "masculine" is considered a synonym for a confident, outgoing, and dominant personality, while the word "feminine" is considered the opposite.

In short, men are always the boss. And if a woman is a boss, she has "masculine" traits that enable her to be that way. Do you see a problem in this?

That's what we are going to discuss in your zodiac sign's weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading for October 8 to 14, 2018: what to do if you are stuck in an unhealthy alpha-beta relationship where you or your partner has staked the claim of being the boss. So let's dive in and see what astrology has in store for you.

ARIES: Reversed 5 of Pentacles

The reason why you fight for the alpha position in your relationship, Aries, is because deep down inside you are insecure about your position in society. That's why you have this maddening urge to conquer and be the best wherever you go. You feel like you have something to prove to the world!

Unfortunately, that path leads only to failure because until you bolster your esteem from within and find a way to heal your insecurities, you always feel like a loser even if you reach the top of the food chain.

TAURUS: 6 of Wands

In this era of participation medals, it might feel like you are entitled to being the boss because of your demographical details, like your skin color, college degree, or bank balance. But the truth, Taurus, is that no one is entitled to anything in this world. We all must fight to win the place on the throne with our sweat, blood, and smarts.

So if you have earned that place in your relationship because of the amount of effort you put in to strengthen your bond and each other's futures, then good for you! Your partner probably looks up to you as a leader anyway. But if that's not the case, you need to reevaluate that entitlement you feel.

GEMINI: The King of Pentacles

The one who wins the bread is not the boss, Gemini. Not anymore. Because anyone can earn money. That's the first thing we are taught to do!

So if you or your partner has been lording over the other because of your higher earning power, remember that the money bills in your bank inherently don't have any worth. It's Economics 101. Besides, money can't buy you love or a happy marriage. Only efforts can.

CANCER: King of Wands

Have you ever worked under a manager who sucked at their job? As in, who was such a bad leader that they drove away talent from the company because of their toxic insecurities and politics? We all have. That's why we know that all bosses are not good leaders.

Well, the same applies to your relationship, Cancer. So if you or your partner has staked the alpha position in your relationship (read: complete power of attorney to make decisions regarding both your lives), then you have to analyze whether this person is actually a leader or just a "boss" who doesn't know what they are doing.

LEO: 4 of Cups

This week you will find yourself sulking in your love life, Leo. That means, if you are in a relationship, you will pull away from your partner, and if not, you will pause dating for a while.

Well, sabbaticals are a great way to find your footing once again and recharge yourself. Just make sure you aren't turning a deaf ear to golden opportunities coming your way because of it. Namely, a reconciliation or a solution that can potentially improve your love life by leaps and bounds.

VIRGO: Reversed 3 of Cups

Where are your friends, Virgo? Did you stop talking to them because they were highlighting certain ugly truths about your love life that you were in complete denial of?

Well, seems like the denial has started to wear off. And now you miss your buddies again who were trying to warn you away from this bad romance. If that's the case, swallow your pride and contact them. Admitting your mistakes is the best thing you can do right now.

LIBRA: Reversed 9 of Cups

The cup runneth over, Libra. And that's a good thing because it means your heart is so full of love that it's spilling into your relationship and soaking it up with good vibes.

But is your partner just as giving? If you just made an excuse for why they haven't been able to contribute as much, ask yourself what are you in denial of? Being a doormat or being taken advantage of?

SCORPIO: Reversed 4 of Wands

Your beautiful world has started to crash around you, Scorpio. Your partner isn't what they seemed like in the beginning. And now you have realized all of a sudden that the two of you are — gasp! — incompatible.

No, that was not funny. It was a warning that you are headed towards deluding yourself into staying in a bad relationship just because you are scared you will never find this same intensity with anyone else ever again.

SAGITTARIUS: Reversed 8 of Cups

This week you will find yourself pulling away from your romantic partner, Sagittarius. It could be because you are dealing with some personal traumas and want to go off the grid to make better headway, or because you had a terrible fight with your partner and don't want to talk to them for a while.

Whatever the reason might be, you will leave for an extended period soon. But it won't be a complete cut off since you still love this person a lot. And you definitely intend on coming back once your head is clear again.

CAPRICORN: Reversed 2 of Pentacles

Your investments are not going to do very well this week, Capricorn. But don't panic. Money markets tend to fluctuate with changing economic and political parameters. And you don't have any control over them anyway.

So don't let this destroy your relationship. Financial stability can be attained again. But a relationship broken because of the ego's need to be superior cannot.

AQUARIUS: Reversed Ace of Cups

Once burned, twice shy, eh, Aquarius? Well, it's your life at the end of the day. And if you are not ready, you know that best. Just remember: life gives us exactly what we are hoping for. So if your subconscious mind is convinced that you are destined for only tragedies, that's all you will ever get.

PISCES: The Moon

Themes of dominance and submission have featured heavily in your life, Pisces. Not just in your love life. And you are no stranger to the devastation it brings when you voluntarily give away the control of your life to another.

But how do you stop yourself from living this horror story over and over again? Well, for one, you have to stop waiting for someone to come and save you. Secondly, if the situation is confusing, you have to find a way to shine the light of clarity on it.

Most of our troubles in life are a direct result of under-preparedness and lack of knowledge. So if you want to get out of this bad place, you must educate yourself first so you know exactly what to do to help yourself.
