Happy Birthday Dear Libra! This month, dynamic energy triggers instability. The friction emerges first at work, and then it insidiously seeps into your primary relationship. The New Moon on the 4th delivers a great deal of upset. A willingness to accommodate unforeseen demands and disappointments meaningfully aids your journey through a very unpredictable October. I’m sure this advice gets old month after month, but really listen: make yourself happy. Good luck making anyone else happy this month. Get rid of what you don’t need physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Love-seekers receive reassuring attention and admiration. Take your pick. Committed Libras deepen the connection with your partner on the 12th. Your theme for this coming year is strength. Cultivate power in every corner of your life.
Scorpio clings to anger like a baby blanket and takes comfort in rage like a lullaby. The New Moon’s October 4th arrival isn’t exactly going to help you resolve your miserability since the energy is in direct opposition to your ruling plant. Expect to get blamed for shit at work this month unless you are extra obnoxiously specific with your directions. Multiplying the likelihood of chaos, Mercury moving in retrograde clouds your usually laser-sharp judgment. October isn’t all bad, Scorpio. Look forward to reaching resolve on a long-lingering relationship thorn this month. Mischief-lover that you are, get ready for two distinctly sexual interludes – one taking place on Halloween night. Furthermore and randomly, October is a favorable time to adopt a pet.
Because you are desperately in need of a new look and you have been working so hard, the universe has granted you permission to splurge. Will it be new hair? A face treatment? A wardrobe investment? Go big and drastic. Others will see you in a new way after the change – as bolder and more capable. A New Moon enters the scene the first week of the month and makes it impossible to ignore those underlying problems you’ve been trying to deny for months. Sags have a way of frosting even the bleakest realities with a cloying sugar coating. Anticipate a midmonth relationship reckoning. Typically extroverted, spend October in the pocket watching, learning, absorbing, and thinking. Single Sags should stay that way until Mercury moves out of retrograde, but feel free to enjoy the attention your new style garners.
Pack your bags Capricorn because travel is a major theme for you this October. It’s a good thing too, because there will be a number of difficult situations from which you want to flee. Domestic drama in particular has you frustrated. You aren’t that easy to live with, so relax the knit-picking and passive aggressive behaviors. Shelve major decisions until your judgment is clearer. No need to rush or persist this October. There are upsides to waiting out this energetic vortex. Why not go balls-to-wall ridiculous with your costume this Halloween? Your wit, creativity, and industry are bound to produce a crowd-pleasing disguise.
Apologies Aquarius, October begins with a bitchslap. Opposing forces mean bad news surrounding a relationship. Your partner may victimize or suffer as a victim. Either way, expect a serious shift in your priorities when it comes to this person. Use the term “partner” broadly here to encompass a number of meaningful associations in your life. When faced with other’s wrong-doing obsessively seek out every morsel of information until you are convinced you know everything. False accusations kill relationships. Delay any major commitments in October even though Aquarius is awash in impatience. Devise a strategy comprised of a number of small achievable steps.
Pisces feel extra fragile this October and there are a number of responses you could take to this vulnerability. I don’t recommend hostility. Respond with kindness and an intention towards compromise and everything will be much easier. Financial anxiety only adds to your fear. Keep your pocketbook zipped. You’ll need a cushion of money this month. Consider broadening your career options by tapping into your rich collection of contacts and resources. Pisces positively glows with the good favor of others beginning the second week of October. Dial back the risk after the 18th. Energetically, you are set up for a super fun Halloween, so put your creativity to constructive use.
Aries can’t keep quiet anymore. Whatever you need to express, you will have the strength to deliver the message clearly. Can you deny the serious cracks in the foundation? Will you take the time to repair or trade up? Remember Aries, those cracks are a result of you stomping around, so unless you mellow you’ll just break everything. Detach emotionally from the outcome, and the solution will form like granite. It takes all damn month, but Aries finally wraps up a major deal by the 31st which has you relieved and up for employee of the month. Just because the project is complete doesn’t mean the pace will relax. Without missing a beat prepare to go again and even bigger.
Taurus feels uncharacteristically rebellious this October. If you have the option to ease up on work responsibilities or take a personal day, this would be the time. You’ll get in trouble at work when you’re this dipped in spunkiness. Play now if you can because next month work demands triple. Revelations of the machinations of others surface and the selfish tone of the maneuvers leave you disappointed. Trust that you will be shielded from the ugliness. Taurus, remember you don’t have to tell everyone everything especially early in relationships. You are freaking people out with your over-intimacy. Dial it way back.
Now that fall has set in, so have certain realizations concerning your past mistakes. The frivolity of summer with all its social exchange made it super easy to dodge responsibility, but all those slimy, icky, guilty feelings have come back with vengeance. You can no longer ignore the pervasive thoughts centered on a most important relationship. Trying to dismiss what is evident has frayed your nerves and left you spent. Realizations aside, hold back on any confrontations or declarations. October is a better time for planning. November is a better time for action. Do take time with unmanaged domestic maintenance matters before they become expensive problems. This Halloween, instead of agreeing to drive everyone’s drunk asses around and then resenting it, why not go home and give out candy with your parents? Wear a ridiculous costume and scare the children.
Cancer’s theme this month is consistency in the face of adversity. If you draw a line in the sand, honor it. Respecting boundaries has never really been your strength, but this October it is more important than ever to stand your ground and make others move the mountain to meet you. Incoming information the first week of the month shifts your perspective on a number of matters. This time you cannot justify or excuse bad behavior. Already confused, the damning intel won’t help clarify the situation. Hide out until you know for sure. The 12th presents a lovely opportunity for a domestic spruce. Tackling a few home improvement projects will help assuage those anxious feelings of impatience. Cancer can relax in knowing that work will remain relatively pleasant and calm this October.
Consider consciously backing off spending in October even though there’s a palpable temptation to go butt-crazy buying. Your purchasing choices will not be well-reasoned this month. October demands an intense operational tempo, but for all the work you put in you’ll see very little immediate return on your hustle. A double whammy of energetic blockages has you feeling impotent and ineffectual. Know that it isn’t entirely your fault and your fortune will change. Listen to the wise counsel of others and take their advice. Your best day for love and surprises is the 16th.
Is there anything sexier than action? Nope. This month you are all do, do, do, and it is a refreshing blast of productivity compared to everyone’s slack. Forging ahead in the midst of turbulence and resistance wears you out, so practice self-care Virgo. Maintain a reasonable workout routine. Continue to fill your savings account and invest wisely. Strengthen your familial ties. Stay far away from contracting and commitments as there is someone trying to intentionally deceive you. Set aside major business dealings until the end of next month. If you can escape on a trip with a friend, you must make it a priority to do so. Virgo’s consistent hard work over the past year gives you a pass to relax for a few days.
