Take a deep breath, and set your alarm clock to a more reasonable wake up time. Because guess what, Fashion month is officially over. And boy, are we glad – hectic schedules that involve cancelled and delayed flights, early call times and general anxiety-driven moments are a thing of the past. Or at least until next season! But for now, we’re ready to dive into a new month, and October is one we’re always keen on getting started – hello apple picking afternoons and cozy evenings filled with hearty meals and red wine. Now that warm summer days are over, and the crisp mornings that define the beginning of Fall are officially upon us, let’s talk horoscopes!
As we transition from Libra into Scorpio, you might find yourself brewing up a new relationship, discussing ideas with your current partner and focusing on all things emotion. Venus, the love goddess and planet will be in retrograde this month, giving you a hand in what works in your relationships, and what doesn’t. Towards the end of the month, you’ll find her stepping back and leaving some room for imagination and adventure right in time for Halloween. Speaking of, any costume ideas you want to share? Email us at email@example.com, we love to hear from you!
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what October has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
September 23rd – October 22nd
First things first, happy birthday dear Libras! It’s your time to shine for another few weeks and we hope you’re celebrating in style. Speaking of celebrating, Venus which is currently in retrograde and in your luxury sector will keep an eye on your finances. How about setting some cash aside now that the new season is in full swing and you can properly distinguish what you need and what’s not necessary. On October 8th there will be a new moon which will be the perfect time to put things into perspective and do some soul-searching on your end.
October 23rd – November 21st
Scorpios, before we put all hands on deck for your birthday month starting on the 23rd, there are a few things to deal with beforehand. Venus in retrograde will make you feel all the feels, and it’ll be the perfect time to work on yourself and grow some thick skin, literally and emotionally. After the new moon on the 8th, it’s time for Mercury to move into your sign which will keep you busy, all throughout the beginning of Scorpio season. It’s going to be a busy time and you’ll be the talk of the town, so get ready!
November 22nd – December 21st
This month it’s all about not letting emotions get the better of you. If things don’t automatically go your way, take a deep breath. The same goes for all your relationships, whether friends or significant others – try not to get too emotional and take everything too seriously. Brace yourself for Hunter’s Moon which is on October 24th and might declare some bumps in the road when it comes to partnerships. If there are any issues that need to be dealt with, use this month to get things done before we get too far down the end of the year.
December 22nd – January 19th
Dear Caps, the next few weeks are projecting to be filled with interesting projects, personal goals and having some fun along the road. Starting with the Libra new moon on October 8th, which will bring positive news in the workplace – followed by the Taurus full moon on the 24th which might inspire you to take that weekend trip you’ve been postponing for a while now. In the romance department, that time of the month will also play an important part and you’ll have to take a decision on whether what you’ve been pursuing is worth it or not.
January 20th – February 18th
Just as new produce is growing on our farms and making their way to our plates through creative recipes, the same creativity is blossoming for you this month dear Aquarius! You’ve always been artistic and full of good ideas, but October is really the time for you to shine. Between Venus going retrograde on the 5th and the Libra new moon on the 8th, it’ll be peak time for you to cook up the things you’ve been wanting to work on for the past few weeks. Warning: the Taurus full moon on the 24th might spice things up (not in the good way), but nothing you can’t deal with.
February 19th – March 20th
Have the busy weeks of Fashion Month kept you on your toes while trying to make it on time to all your shows and appointments? We know you like to keep things in a straight line and play it safe, but a little fun and adventure never hurt nobody. The new moon on the 8th will inspire you to splurge on a thing or two you’ve had your eyes on since the beginning of fashion month and the Hunter’s Moon on the 24th will clear your head with those issues you’ve been dealing with – whether at work or at home.
March 21st – April 19th
Romance and wellbeing are on the agenda for you this month dear Aries. Use this time to work on yourself, explore new sides of your personality, but most importantly keep the things you want to keep private, private. There’s no need to overshare with everyone, and there’s also no need to say yes to everything. Venus and Libra on the 8th of October will assist you when it comes to the above, and as we hit the middle of the month on October 15th, you might consider taking that conversation leap after all and share an intimate talk with a special someone.
April 20th – May 20th
A lot of things happening this month for you dear Taurus. From hashing out arguments that have been going on way too long, to deciding whether to commit yourself to a new relationship, mixed in with new milestones at work. To say you’ve got your hands full is an understatement, but you’re getting some backup. The Libra new moon on the 8th will cover you, while the full moon on the 24th and Venus being in retrograde will give you a push in the right direction to get everything done before the end of the month.
May 21st – June 20th
Those months before the holidays and before the cold weather hit your town, will have you looking to cozy up to a special someone. But don’t choose just anyone – spice up your date night looks and hit the town. In the work department you might face a dilemma or two so why not talk it out with a friend outside of the office? Getting an outsider opinion will offer you a different perspective on the situation and you’ll deal with it faster than you think. And before the month ends, make sure to have your Halloween outfit ready to dance the night away!
June 21st – July 22nd
We don’t mean to repeat ourselves but things in the romance department aren’t looking too great for the dating folks out there. Although it’s the season to get together and warm up with a nice of cocoa or glass of wine, Venus being retrograde is causing quite some drama. Thankfully for us the Taurus full moon on the 24th will shine some light on the friendship sector and make sure you’ve got a listening ear. But before the full moon, we warn you not to get trapped into the overflowing of emotions that might surface from the new moon on October 8th.
July 23rd – August 22nd
Have you been feeling confused and indecisive in the past weeks? You can thank Venus for that and for being retrograde starting from the 5th of this month. Luckily for you, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel and the Libra new moon on the 8th will help you see things with more clarity. Keep in mind that communication is key, and you’ll feel much better when Scorpio season starts on the 23rd. Speaking of the end of the month, you’ll want to swap up your usual Halloween night for a cozy get together with old friends.
August 23rd – September 22nd
The same as for your pal Leo goes for you dear Virgo, this month is the time to be clear and concise about what you want and what you expect from those around you. Don’t share the same interests or anything really with that new person you’ve been dating? Better make things clear before it’s too late. On October 8th you’ll have the chance to prove yourself at work and perhaps even ask for a raise before the end of the year. The Hunter’s Moon on the 24th will keep you busy at least until Halloween, and when that spooky time comes, why not skip out on the usual celebrations and take the day off?
