Here is what I have:

enter image description here

My event is being repeated every week, however if I don't update the "original" date (2018-10-08) manually the event will stay on top of the agenda (12 d. ago: EVENT weekly event).

Is there a way to avoid having that on top of the agenda, by just repeating this event every monday (without specifying an original date) ? Something like <Mon +1w> (which doesn't work).

    Remove the DEADLINE and leave it as a normal timestamp.

Items marked DEADLINE and SCHEDULED will nag you with reminders that you haven't completed them on days when the item is not scheduled to take place.

If you do not want these reminders to clutter your agenda view, use a normal timestamp instead.

Note that timestamps can have repeaters as well, but they will not show up on the "wrong" days in your agenda view. This feature is useful for, say, a weekly meeting or class, such as:

* Weekly staff meeting
  <2018-09-05 +1w>
