Autumn has arrived with the dawn of Libra season. October watches as our lives shift toward connection and relationships. At the end of September, a New Moon in Libra opened a door in the Universe and this energy will continue to shimmer over the beginning days of October. Libra as a zodiac sign rules partnership, union, and the importance of moving from “me” to “we.” During this time of the year, we often cross paths with someone who is a mirror to us. Whether it is in business, love, or collaboration, we have an opportunity to become stronger by uniting. Also, with Mars, planet of passion, and Venus, planet of harmony and love, residing in Libra in the early parts of the month, expect to see important decisions about your relationships coming to the surface.

October 11th marks an important date this year because our beloved planet Mercury, ruling the mind, negotiations, and communication, will officially enter shadow. This is an important moment for us because from now until the 31st you will begin to notice certain conversations that will be revisited extensively in November. This isn’t a time to worry, but it is important to be conscious of your words and actions. During the official retrograde in November, the hiccups in our lives will be most apparent, but the more effort you put into checking and double-checking your plans, the more likely you are to avoid any bigger pitfalls. This retrograde takes place in the intense zodiac sign of Scorpio, a Water Sign known for its powerful emotions and hunger. Scorpio, as a zodiac sign, thirsts for power, sex, and passion to an almost insatiable level. With Mercury and our minds dancing backwards within this sign, we will be addressing our innermost needs and desires. We will also be focused upon balancing our mind with our hearts. Pay attention to important messages from the Universe during this time because your intuition will be heightened. If someone or something is consistently on your mind, heed the information closely. 

The bright and resounding Full Moon in Aries will crackle amidst the Autumn air on the 13th, bringing a culmination that we have been building since April of this year. Aries, the leader of the zodiac, is a Fire Sign known for its independence, dominance, and initiative. What you were beginning in April will now be seen for what it truly is: will you continue on your path or shift direction altogether? Expect the cosmos to be feeling a bit more impulsive at this time. Use this energy toward your goals and for taking charge of your relationships, but avoid conflict if a clash is ahead. With planets still dancing in the fair-minded zodiac sign of Libra, you should continue to work in tandem before rocking the boat.

When the Sun dances on into Scorpio on the 23rd, our passionate natures will be unleashed. This time of the year is when we often pay attention to our shadow selves and notice some of our hidden desires coming up into the light. When the New Moon in Scorpio kisses the night’s sky on the 27th, the door will open to us better understanding our motivations and behaviors. We all have light and darkness within us, and neither side is better than the other. This is because our darkness can actually help us better understand our human nature and rather than acting on it in a harmful way, we can channel it into productive and healthier choices. In the coming ten days after this New Moon, consider your ambitions, your plans, and your strategy to get everything you desire.

Yet, we end the month on Halloween, October 31st, with the first official day of Mercury Retrograde. This will cause a bit of havoc to hit our lives, so be sure to lie low as much as you can. It is important over the coming weeks to not sign contracts or make any major decisions that you do not want to unravel or revisit later. Of course if you are forced to do so and time is of the essence, go for it — but know that you do not have all of the information on the surface just yet.

October is a month that is setting the playing field for some big months ahead, so pay attention to the Universe’s whisper. It is telling you something repeatedly. Do not ignore it or you will regret it later.

Find out how the month will affect you specifically!



Connection is highly important to you in October, Aries. Major partnerships in love and business are singing from the stars above. This could be a fated time to make long-term plans, get engaged or married, or even cross paths with a twin flame. Know what you want in a partner. Around October 13th, though, a Full Moon in your sign brings you a chance for a very important personal achievement. With your goals front and center, you can make your wishes known. However, to end the month, you’ll again be considering your connections, but also on what you give and receive. Communicate from an emotional place.


It’s time for work-work-work! You’re certainly known for your incredible stamina, so get ready to take on more projects and responsibility. If you have any important health goals you want to launch in the next year, this is also the time to do it. You can become stronger, fitter, and more aligned. However, mid-month sees you wanting to take time to rest. You have made a lot of progress in the last six months, and you deserve relaxation. You also may have a very important project that you are working on behind-the-scenes that you’re preparing to launch. Focus on the details so you can build your empire. Yet, as we move toward the end of the month, you are feeling the desire to grow closer with someone else – perhaps in love or in business. If you are in a toxic relationship, you may actually decide to walk away. This is because better partners await you. But for the Taurus that are happily together, expect that you could become official, move in, get engaged, and some may even get married. Next month is a big one for your relationships because you’ll be doing a lot of evaluation and may cross paths with an ex, so know what you want and if you want to reopen that doorway, the stars will soon be aligned.


Your creative and romantic engine is in overdrive at the beginning of October, Gemini! If you’re single, be sure to get out there and mingle, and if taken, find ways to bring spontaneity, fun, and adventure into the zest of your love life. Mid-month will get you out and about with friends and in public. An important event could pop up that you must attend. Don’t forget to dress just right so you steal the show. You may meet new people who become very valuable to your life. As we end the month, though, you are back on your grind either taking on new projects or pushing old ones to the next level. If you hustle now, you can get back to fun and games later. Last, if trying to improve your health, be sure to set your goals in practical increments so it will become natural to your routine.


You’re going to notice your home and family stealing your attention at the beginning of October, but that is second nature to you, Cancer. You’re naturally sentimental, so this is a good time to fix up your space or return to a place that is nostalgic. If looking to improve your connection with these people, the door is creaking open, so reach out and pull them closer. The middle of October will have your career resounding through the Heavens, though, so you could be receiving some exciting recognition, a promotion, or an opportunity for exposure. Don’t stand in the shadows. Make sure everyone knows your name. Finally, though, as we near the ending weeks, your romantic and creative spark is twinkling like magic, so get ready to ignite that candle. Set up some dates if single or plan some adventurous moments with your partner. If you’re artistic, get ready for the inspiration to strike.


Your mind is firing off, Leo, which is perfect because it appears you have a lot to say! Early month has you focused on how you can communicate and speak your mind, so be clear on what you aim to do with it. Contracts, negotiations, and legalities may also be on your radar. However, mid-October you are thinking about growing your mind even further, perhaps with academics, spirituality, or exotic adventures. Find ways to learn more about humanity at large and if you can travel, certainly do so. The end of the month, though, sees you very focused on your family or home. Some of you may be moving or simply find ways to freshen up your space. Your palace should always feel like a Kingdom to you.


Money matters are on your mind, Virgo, and that’s good because many of the planets in the beginning of the month are telling you to know your value and worth. Some Virgo may experience a raise or find a new job at this time. Your expenses also do look to be up a bit, so try to conserve your resources. Mid-October will have you thinking about what you owe others and what they owe you, and if looking for a loan, investment, or scholarship, you could see some news regarding this pop up. You’re also feeling very needy during this time and your sensual needs will be heightened. Don’t shy away from them, you deserve affection, too. The final week of the month, though, has you focusing very intensely on writing, speaking, or communications-related projects. You could be launching a new campaign or attempting to rebrand yourself. This should work well in your favor. An important contract may also be on your mind.


Sound the alarm, you’re ready for birthday season, Libra! You are the main event – just how you like it! The first week is the most important time of the coming year to take important steps toward your hopes and dreams – so don’t just sit back on your laurels. Go after the abundance of life! However, an important Full Moon highlighting your relationships will be happening mid-month. This could be seeing you making important plans with a business partner or tying the knot closer with a significant other. If you are unhappy, though, either you or they may walk away. If this is the case, it is meant to be that way. However, as we move along to the final days of the month, your mind is definitely on money and income matters. You could be spending some important cash or bringing in more of your own. Remember money is replaceable. Focus on what you want to do with it.


At the start of October, you want to take a backseat. You either have important projects and plans going on behind-the-scenes that aren’t ready for the limelight or could be noticing something you’ve hidden come out to be exposed. Hopefully karma isn’t here to bite you, so be sure to take some time to rest and recharge at this time. Near the middle of the month, though, you have a very important work or health-related project coming to your attention, so if you conserve your resources, you will likely knock it out of the ballpark. Yet, excitement and adrenaline are ready for you once Scorpio season arrives in the last third of the month. With birthday time here, you’re ready to step front and center toward your most important plans for the coming year. Strategically make the world bow to you.


Get ready to have a bit more fun at the start of October, fiery Sagittarius. This is a big time for events, friends, and social vibes! If you want to get closer with your besties, this is a fortunate time, or if you want to meet significant new contacts that may be able to help you in many ways, be sure to go to mixers. You could even be turning a BFF into a love interest if that’s been on your mind! However, your heart is sure to be set on fire mid-month with the Full Moon lighting your romantic and creative sector. Single Sagittarius could find a romantic affair that heats up your wild side, whereas taken Sagittarius could be sparking the zest back into their relationship. If you have been unhappy in love, you may end up walking away. However, as the month draws to a close, you’ll surely need some rest and relaxation. Listen to your body’s rhythms.


Your career is causing everyone to turn and look your way at the beginning of October, and this will make you ready to reach even higher. You will likely be in the limelight or have the possibility for some significant achievement or public recognition at this time, so be sure to grind hard and have a clear vision of what you want in the months and years to come. You could also be seeing some popularity or recognition coming from a partner, so if you like the idea of being a power couple, make sure the world knows your names. However, mid-October has you focusing on an important family or home-related situation at this time. If you have been seeking to get closer with your kindred, now is a good time. Also, some Capricorn could be moving or fixing up their space, too. Yet, as the weeks of October draw to the end, you’ll be suddenly feeling your social life crank up. Important events could begin to appear and you may notice that you are craving more freedom and expansion at this time. You could become especially popular if you continue to load up your calendar, and if you have a special someone, you both could suddenly be “the most talked about on the town.” Yet, prepare for November because it’ll definitely showcase even more love potential for single Capricorn, and possibly even open a door to the one who got away.


October rings with excitement and adventure, so be sure to spread your wings and set sail toward it. The beginning weeks of the month are pushing you to take risks and get out of your comfort zone and learn more about life and the world. You could be working on an important publishing, media, or academic project at this time or even drawn to some sort of spirituality or meditation. Around October 13th, though, you’re focusing on how you can write and speak more effectively and may be finishing up an important communications-related project that has been affecting you since last Spring. The end of October, though, will get you roaring toward big career achievement. If you continue to hustle now, a promotion, new job, or significant goal could be within reach. Time is of the essence now.


Partnerships have certainly been on your mind in recent weeks, either in business, love, or collaboration. What you give and receive in relationships is a key theme at the beginning of the month. If they are balanced, they will improve. If they are not, you may walk away. This could also be a time where you’re asking for help from a bank, company, or individual, too. Mid-October, though, money is definitely on your mind and you could be seeing money come in or a significant expense having to be paid off. Use your funds responsibly and don’t take on any frivolous costs. The final days of the month will see your mind highly active, though, and you could be feeling the urge to expand your vision of the world, whether it be through travel, study, media, or working with people very different than you. Take chances. As they say: adventure doesn’t happen if you don’t first step outside your door.
