What a magical time to be alive. It’s almost as if you’d been asleep your whole life and you just woke up. The crisp air of the morning, the crunch of the leaves beneath your feet, you can feel it all. October is a time of boundless, expansive energy that creates dynamic relationships within your universe. If things aren’t working out for you this month, it’s simply because the timing isn’t right. Once things start clicking then it’s time to buckle up and enjoy the ride. Roll your windows down, let the breeze dance between your fingers as you hum a hymn to autumn.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
October welcomes your sign into the season of change—get out your penny wrappers. This month there is a lot of influence coming from the celestial territory of Virgo. Passion, sex, values, and primal matter have called you out. I can’t tell you what this means because this is meant to be subjective. Shake the cobwebs out of your fall shoes to make sure there isn’t a wolf spider waiting to nom on your phalanges. Om nom nom nom.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
Your opposite sign, Virgo—has a lot of influence on your chart this month. How in tune are you with Virgo? Virgo can bring your lofty ideals down to Earth and add a pinch of practicality. If you don’t like this, then you may have a difficult month. October brings you fresh challenges that only a Pisces can handle. Expect to have zero expectations and become aware of the dualities that possess life. Embrace your instincts and take nothing personal, these are your locally forged weapons of light.
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
Your fiery nature has the ability to burn a scar on barren landscapes and to give brilliant light to that which is lost in the dark. You’ve gotta realize that both are not separate but are a part of the whole and encompass your existence. October is all about partnerships and relationships. If you can keep your passion pilot light lit to medium heat then you can prepare to simmer a sweet and savory story for years to come. It is best that you just simmer, like Donna. Donna Simmer, summer…
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
The Full Moon (Hunters Moon) on October 27th is sure to be a period of robust harvests and gatherings. The cycles in life occur on both large and small scales and when you take a few moments to realize this then you can strategize—everything. This is a prolific period to do a personal check and balance with your relationships. Are you receiving as much as you’re releasing? If not, then get it together. The weeks leading up to the Full Moon can be intense, or if you’re hipster camping—in tents. The vigor will start around the date of October 13th.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/21
You are the sign of the twins, Gemini. Do you use your power for good or for evil? Theories can be developed by plotting data. Do your leisure activities include reading arcane witchcraft and wizardry to predict the future? If you answered, “yes” we can postulate the latter. Evil can be fun—if you salt the rim and add grapefruit juice. The lofty nature of your ideals have attracted certain people into your life. This will be anything but a boring month.
Cancer 6/22 – 7/22
You’re an emotional sign, Cancer. The feeling of fall can be a transcendental experience that can inspire you to dig a little deeper. Finding the root of something is where you need to start. Begin anew as you walk through the fresh air of October. A negative Nancy may come strutting her stuff into your life around October 13th. Keep a healthy distance or invite her over for “tea.” That’s your move, make your mark. The nuisance won’t linger for long and before you know it you will be sipping on a pumpkin chai latte whether you’re willing to publicly admit that you like it or not.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
When you roar you are heard and felt for miles. Has there been a disturbance in the force lately, Leo? Have you already dismissed the possibility of it being the impending Star Wars movie? Like all things within the force, there must be a balance. If you’re having a good time, be prepared for war, if you’re having a bad time, maybe it wouldn’t be a horrible idea to buy some tea and crumpets, or trumpets—if you’re into alliterations.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
It seem as if the planets are having a party this month and it’s at your house! Unless you track the planetary movements, this unexpected soiree will be quite the shocker. Although unplanned, you can celebrate throughout the entirety of October. Venus comes into Virgo on October 8th and from that date on, you can expect your dreams to come true. If you’re having dreams of doing monotonous things at work again, try eating some spicy food before bed.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
The balance that you crave will be served to you by the chef. This October the theme is balance and rewards. If you’re finding yourself having more bad days than good ones then something isn’t right. Evaluate what isn’t working for you and follow what you do. You don’t have to be completing your goals at this point, just make sure you’re making tiny steps. Pretend you’re sneaking up on your significant other to offer them a fortuitous surprise. SURPRISE!
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
You’re having quite an energetic month. The trick to winning October is to balance this energy and also to consume all things pumpkin. Your love life this month will receive a nice jolt. This is due to Mars and Venus being in harmony. Your ability to move and shake the world are at its peak. This is the time to make things happen, those tangibles that you so deliciously desire. Saturn is officially out of Scorpio so you can breathe now.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
Prosperity is leaching into your life at rates you almost can’t handle. But you can, and do—because you’re a Sagittarius. Your reputation is larger than you are and this can open up many doors for you. The wealth that comes into your life can be attributed to your hard work and Jupiter pulling the strings in your favor. Saturn has recently gone direct in your sign and will influence your chart in many ways. It is the start of a new cycle and beginnings have challenges that can be extremely rewarding—break on through to the other side.
