October Horoscopes

21st March – 20th April
The month opens with a leap of faith for you. It’s easy to overstretch at this time though, so look before you leap. The full moon on the 12th is in your sign, which means relationships are at the forefront of your mind more than ever, and it’s all about balancing priorities. The sun moves into your angle of trust and sharing from the 23rd and a new moon here on the 26th sheds light on how much you are willing to share of yourself with others. It’s all about trust versus control of the unknown; emotionally and financially.

21st April – 21st May
Try not to overreact to family dramas during first week of Oct, as someone is out to press your buttons. Don’t bite, instead work off your frustrations through projects related to home; it’s much more productive and easier to organise and fix. Meanwhile there’s a dreamy and starry-eyed influence around work and career, which means rose tinted glasses are to your advantage this month, especially around the 7th, 12th, and 21st. There’s also a romantic new moon in your relationship zone on the 26th which hints at a big and beautiful future ahead.

22nd May – 21st June
With your ruler Mercury meeting limiting Saturn on the 6th there could be a bit of creative block going on during first week of Oct, but don’t try too hard to overcome it, go with the flow to get back in your flow, don’t pay too much attention to what others have to say about it all, and by midmonth you are back on track, more than before. There’s a psychic new moon on the 26th, so follow your hunches; in fact most of this month has that kind of edge for you, be bold about what you sense: if it feels good, it must be true for you.

22nd June – 22nd July
Pleasure seeker Venus starts a journey through your house of fun and entertainment from the 9th, so follow your bliss and go where your heart wants to take you. This might be a challenge around the 12th, during a full on full moon in your house of career and reputation, when the pace of working life quickens and responsibilities at home still call your attention, but the mood still moves you toward enjoyment and fulfilment. Romance is imaginative and deep this month, especially around the 26th when the new moon gives you all kinds of new ideas.

23rd July – 23rd August
Don’t over egg the pudding when it comes to profile raising in work and career early in the month; it’s not about less being more when it comes to presentation, it’s just easy to come on too strong with mighty Mars on a mission to get you noticed. Around full moon time on the 12th there’s the dilemma of whether to tell all or keep quiet regarding a certain situation; it’s all about feeling the burden of responsibility lies with you on what to do, but really, there’s no right or wrong way to play it. Look forward to end of the month as it’s great for career expansion and satisfying schedule changes.

24th August – 22nd September
There’s a sense of limitation around finances during the first week, which puts you in a responsible mood for the month, especially around full moon time on the 12th. You are on a roll with work at that time too, so make the most of what you find or find out then. Communication is interesting all month; new moon on the 26th brings new contacts and conversation but misunderstandings are easy to reach at times, especially 31st. Meanwhile, romance is intent on broadening your horizons all month.

23rd September – 23rd October
At times this month you might feel extra pressure on your shoulders, extra weight of responsibility, especially when it comes to communication: what to say and when best to say it, seems to be filled with extra significance. A relationship-themed full moon on the 12th gets you all defensive and digging your heels in and there’s a choice to keep your distance or keep moving closer, and this theme is echoed in money matters too, especially in final week. Basically it’s a case of who you want to invest in and how much.

24th October – 22nd November
It’s a busy old month for Scorpio; lots happening involving your sign, including Venus arriving on the 9th, followed by Mercury on the 13th, the sun on the 23rd and a fabulous new moon on the 26th. It all bodes well for relationships, with partners wanting to push ahead with contracts or commitments, the question is are you ready too? There’s also a flurry of activity around work and career plans; you are in thick of sorting out where you stand and where your next steps might take you, so use the new moon energy for setting some new intentions.

23rd November – 21st December
Up to midmonth, a friendship or group contact might feel strained. There’s a burden to stay upbeat or on top of weighty issues for the sake of keeping the peace, however you’re right to feel it’s not your responsibility to do so. The full moon on the 12th seems to bring it all to a head and sorts your priorities, but wait for the new moon on the 26th for bright solutions, for this and other matters, as inspiration hits when you don’t look too hard for it. This includes money matters, as there’s a welcome opportunity coming end of the month.

22nd December – 20th January
There’s a pressure you might feel building up, regarding long-term plans and ambitions, felt keenly in the first week, and especially around the full moon on the 12th. There’s something about this kind of pressure that you thrive on though, so enjoy the creative conflict generated as it’s likely to be highly productive in the long run as it’s getting you focused and clear, which makes some difficult choices easier to make. The mood lightens around new moon time on the 26th: friendships, groups and gatherings are the focus, so fresh faces and new experiences are heading your way.

21st January – 18th February
Up to midmonth, events are holding your attention toward beliefs or opinions that have held you back, or that you’re now using to hold yourself back, and a feisty full moon on the 12th suggests that you don’t argue for those limitations anymore. Keep going the way you are going with career moves though, as there’s plenty to feel comfy and positive about, even at end of month when certain professional relationships get prickly. You are a natural at the art of respectful emotional detachment, so you can use your skill to great effect there.

19th February – 20th March
There’s a reluctance to jump in at the deep end this month, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. So don’t. It’s a step by step thing, as it is with money matters too; finances are at the forefront of your mind, especially around the 12th, but you’re firmly in sensible mode, so this fair and square attitude helps deal effectively with your own concerns. There’s an emphasis on travel or education too; whatever it takes to broaden horizons is where you are headed.
