October Horoscopes

Aries Sun/Rising With the Full Moon on the 1st in your sign, it’s time to take a hard look in the mirror. Full Moon in Aries is going to wrap-up a six-month cycle of inertia, stamina, aggression, anger, and lust. Don’t be afraid to ask yourself the hard questions under the Full Moon. Have you been able to appreciate stillness? Have you used your energy wisely? Did you get a grip on your anger and aggression? Ponder these questions throughout the first week of October, as it’s bound to be an explosive week that aims to test you. Shortly after, Venus moves into Virgo on the 2nd, lighting up your zone of work, daily routine, and health. Venus in Virgo is going to remind you to make the most of your time throughout your day, and teach you valuable lessons in adaptation. Venus in Virgo will prioritize your healthy habits as well. Expect some relief when Pluto stations direct on the 4th! With Saturn, Jupiter, and now Pluto all direct in your sector of maturation, status, and career, it’s time to pick up where you last left off. You may have grown immensely, Aries. Parts of your path have been stripped away – and for the better! Let Pluto’s direct energy transform all of your long-term endeavors for the better. Even with Pluto direct, we’re still heavy into the Retrograde Season, which doesn’t get any lighter with Mercury stationing Retrograde on the 13th. Mercury will be Retrograding in the sign of Scorpio, which highlights your sector of the hidden and taboo. Mercury Retrograde is going to unearth all that is hidden both in your life, and in your mind. Expect major revelations that will cleanse your mind, leaving you with nothing but clarity. By the 16th, the New Moon in Libra is going to be prime-time to re-evaluate your area of commitments. The New Moon is an ideal time to think about how you can invite peace, harmony, and reciprocity into your relationships. Make loving, balanced relationships a priority and get rid of the codependent relationships. On the 22nd, the Sun will move into Scorpio! Scorpio Season is a time to psychologically evaluate your secrecy, your inner mysteries, and your taboo interests. Dive in head first, and enjoy the psychological thriller that is your mind! The end of October ends on a lighter, if bittersweet, note. On the 27th, both Mercury Retrograde and Venus move into Libra, which is highlighting your zone of commitments. This is an ideal time to have much-needed conversations with your partners, coworkers, and loved ones about what you expect. Mercury Retrograde will bring up any and all unfairness in your relationships. Venus will encourage you to make your standards a priority within the relationships. Consider these two transits as the first opportunity to get started on your New Moon intentions and goals. October’s final transit is the Full Moon in Taurus on Halloween. The Full Moon is a six-month reflection on values, wealth, and budgeting. It’s time to review how you’ve managed financially over the last six-months. The Full Moon may also be a time to review what you value, whether that’s financial, physical, emotional, or mental values.  

Taurus Sun/Rising October kicks off with the Full Moon in Aries on the 1st, giving up your subconscious for introspection. Taurus, over the last six-months, you may have felt restless, frustrated, and agitated. It’s likely you’ve been brooding these last six-months, trying to harness your energy and anger but maybe failing to do so correctly. While introspecting under this Full Moon, consider meditating. Become one with stillness. Allow yourself to feel what you’ve been running away from. It’s perfectly fine to feel angry, frustrated, stuck, and more. But in order to appraise your emotions correctly, you must first sit with them. I suggest trying a RAIN meditation! By the very next day, Venus will move into Virgo, putting your zone of creativity into perspective. Venus in Virgo is going to implore you to find productivity in creative endeavors. Get back into the hobbies and past-times you love! Productivity is not always related to finances. Productivity can look like finding happiness in the hobbies you love doing, too. Enough is enough when Pluto stations direct on the 4th! Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter are all direct in your zone of family and home. Your beloved familial ties, home-life, and roots have undergone a massive transformation over the last few months. Taurus, you may normally dig your heels in at the thought of change, but Pluto being direct is all about welcoming change. Let whatever aspects of the zone be transformed. It’s all for the better!  On the 12th, Jupiter will sextile Neptune Retrograde, putting your long-term journey into focus. This transit asks you to let go of pride, of ego, to embrace help from your communities. Let those in your communities help you with your long-term endeavors. Be open to what others have to say, or the connections they could lead you to. Shortly after, Mercury begins its Retrograde in Scorpio, putting a regressed energy on your zone of commitments. You may be feeling particularly anxious, if not suspicious, of your relationships. There may be a desire to dig for the truth, especially if your gut is telling you something is off in your relationships. Don’t be afraid to ask for honesty from others. However, be mindful of when you’re obsessively investigating, as you may accidentally turn a molehill into a mountain. When Scorpio Season hits on the 22nd, you may be more inclined to lock-down commitments and relationships. There may be an immense desire for commitment, passion, and transformation in your relationships. When both Mercury Retrograde and Venus move into Libra on the 27th, this will put a loving, mental focus on your zone of health, daily life, and work. Mercury Retrograde may bring up some inevitable conversations about your healthy habits, relationship with work, and career goals. Venus will encourage you to take time for yourself, to find balance between yourself and your career. October wraps up on the 31 with the Full Moon in Taurus. Spend the end of October in luxury. This Full Moon asks you to engage in a little self-care when you’re thinking about how far you’ve come and what you’ve done over the last six months.

Gemini Sun/Rising Have there been many changes to your communities over the last six months, Gemini? Under the Full Moon in Aries on the 1st, you’re going to review how your relationships with others have changed. Some connections, groups, and outlets have come and gone over the last six months. Know that whoever has stuck around until now are here for the long haul. And in regard to whoever left, take away an important lesson or fond memory from that connection, then move on. On the 2nd, Venus moves into Virgo, putting your home and family into focus. With Venus in Virgo, it’s time to think about how you can be more giving, more productive in your home and family. This can allude to finishing up old home projects, or even being of service to your family members. Remember to steer away from being overly critical of your family members. It’s time to finally see change brewing when Pluto stations direct on the 4th. Now that Pluto is also direct with Jupiter and Saturn, this is all hitting your zone of the hidden, taboo, and shard resources. Pluto being direct is going to invoke major change. For some, this change is turning over a new leaf with your resources, particularly any joint finances or financial investments. For others, your fresh take is about releasing control, allowing change to overcome you, and learning from it. Some Geminis may even experience a newfound appreciation for taboo matters, such as sex and the occult. Regardless, change is heading your way – are you ready? And just as one planet stations direct, another planet stations retrograde. Mercury Retrograde begins on the 13th, putting a backwards mentality on your health, daily routine, and work. During the first half of Mercury Retrograde, you may struggle with day-to-day activities or finding motivation to go about your daily routine. Your daily routine may be out of sync, as one thing snowballs into another. Work may feel stagnant, heavy, and plagued with miscommunication. Some of you may even be struck down by unexpected illness. Try your best to take it easy! With the New Moon in Libra on the 16th, it’s time to plan ahead for inviting more balance and harmony into your sector of creativity. Over the next six months, you need to get involved in productive, positive hobbies and past-times. Stop invoking drama, or finding yourself in the middle of someone else’s business. Instead, play around with past-times that are socially inclined, intelligent, fluid, and peaceful. When the Sun moves into Scorpio on the 22nd, this is the time to begin evaluating if your daily routine, work, and health are up to par. Scorpio Season is going to have you evaluate your health, particularly from a mental stance. Scorpio Season may also implore you to find a deeper meaning in your daily life, or to figure out how to enrich your daily routine. Work may take a turn for the more mysterious, so be cautious with the ever-turning rumor mill. October concludes on a relatively peaceful, if reflective note. The Full Moon on the 31st is time to evaluate your underlying mental processes and subconscious. Reflect on whether you’ve stabilized mentally and emotionally over the last six months. The final Full Moon is all about how you can maintain peace of mind.

Cancer Sun/Rising The Full Moon in Aries on the 1st is illuminating your sector of maturation, status, and career. Over the last six months, have you made any advancements on these goals in this sector? For some, the goals may be centered around growth, particularly with mental and emotional maturation. For others, the goals may be centered around advancing on the desired career path. Lastly, additional goals could be related to becoming more prominent or well-known in a particular group, community, or industry. Regardless of what the goals were, take time to reflect on your journey thus far at the beginning of the month. Just try your best to not become overly critical or nitpicky with your communication, thoughts, and mental processes with Venus moving into Virgo. On the 4th, Pluto stations direct in your zone of commitments. With Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter all direct and influencing this zone, your relationships have undergone massive transformation. This can allude to break-ups of all kinds, or moving on from a karmic cycle in a relationship. Pluto’s direct influence on your commitments are going to end some relationships and commitments for good. It can also bring an ending to a cycle, chapter, or pattern within relationships. Expect some final, heavy changes in this sector!  But be mindful that whatever is ending, is for the better. When Jupiter sextiles Neptune Retrograde on the 12th, this is bringing some much-needed clarity to some recent endings in your connections. The clarity you gain from loss will help you advance. This can refer to letting some much-needed secrets out in a connection, which can help propel the connection to a better place. This can also refer to the ending of a connection, which can help you move onto a better connection down the road. When Mercury stations Retrograde on the 13th, this is going to put some stagnant energy in your creativity. You may feel a bit sexually stifled, repressed, or bored in the first half of Mercury Retrograde. You may even lose interest in current projects and passions during the first half of Mercury Retrograde. Don’t worry, this will all change at the end of October when Scorpio Season begins!

Leo Sun/Rising October kicks off immediately with a Full Moon on the 1st, putting an emphasis on your spiritual journey and higher education. Over the last six months, have you evolved spiritually in any sort of way? This can be taking time to heal any emotional wounds, meditating, learning more about astrology, diving into divination, praying, researching religions, etc. If not, have you advanced with your educational path? For some, this is actively working on or towards a degree or certification. For others, this is simply exploring the possibility of continuing your education or advancement. Regardless of the circumstances, appraise your advancements that you’ve made over the last six months! Celebrate all victories, no matter how big or small it seems.  With Pluto stationing direct on the 4th, this is a great time to begin anew with your work, daily routine, and healthy habits.

Are you any closer to where you want to be? What are some major lessons to take away from to help you achieve long-term success?

Virgo Sun/Rising October kicks off with heavy introspection under the Full Moon on the 1st. Whew, what a way to get started! Virgo, reflect on all that is hidden and taboo in your life, particularly the happenstances that occurred over the last six months. Did you act on any secret endeavors? Did it come into fruition the way you envisioned? Whatever the case may be, consider laying some of these mysteries to rest. Close the chapter out, so-to-speak. A day later, Venus moves into your sign, putting a loving glow on yourself. Steer away from heavy inner negativity and criticism. Try to work on perfecting the positive mindset and outlook on yourself instead. Take Venus in Virgo as a time to work on accepting all that you are and aren’t. When Pluto goes direct on the 4th, this is bringing in much-needed transformation to your creative endeavors. Virgo, you’re about to become insanely creative and successful from it! Let go of the stagnancy in any projects and endeavors. Accept that some projects have come to head, and begin working on the next greatest thing. Success is heading your way with your creative pursuits! Mercury goes Retrograde on the 13th, putting a regressed tone in your sector of communication. The first half of Mercury Retrograde may be obsessive, particularly over people in your immediate inner circles. Try not to ruminate on certain failed or awkward conversations, or someone’s actions. When speaking, try to keep a tone of open-mindedness. You may struggle with dogmatism or domination in conversation. Keep this rule of thumb in mind for Mercury Retrograde and Scorpio Season – if you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing at all.  The New Moon on the 16th is looking to bring balance to your budget over the next six months. Under the New Moon, think about re-working your budget and finances. When Venus and Mercury Retrograde move into Libra, this will put an emphasis on your budget as well.

October’s transits end on the 31st with a Full Moon. This final Full Moon is empathizing your long-term journey with education and spirituality.

Libra Sun/Rising October begins with a Full Moon in Aries on the 1st, putting a spotlight on your zone of unions and commitments. Over the past six months, how have you stood your ground and maintained independence in your relationship? With the Full Moon begging for introspection, it’s time to cut off the relationships that are codependent and fodders for unnecessary anger. Be a little selfish with what you deserve from a connection. With Venus in Virgo, this may be difficult to relieve yourself of martyr responsibilities, particularly to draining, codependent connections. But Venus in Virgo can also remind you of your standards and expectations, not only for yourself but for others too. With Pluto going direct on the 4th, this is bringing in a much-needed transformation to your home and family. It’s time to close out a chapter with the home and family.

Whatever the case may be, know that this will alleviate some stressors in your daily routine and may even lighten your mental health. With Mercury stationing Retrograde on the 13th, this can result in an obsessive mental energy. You may be in the rumination station with your finances and values. For some, you may become ultra-controlling about your finances throughout the first half of Mercury Retrograde and during Scorpio Season. This can allude to focusing on making more money, being scrupulous, or even being obsessive with how much money you have. For others, this may allude to a time of heavy introspection about values – what you desire, what’s already innate, and what could be potentially at risk. There is a brief sigh of relief under the New Moon on the 16th. The New Moon is occurring in Libra, so this feels like a peaceful time of possibilities. Over the next six months, you need to set intentions about finding inner balance and harmony.
