Your October Horoscope Has You Reassessing Your Relationships and Reflecting on Your Self-Worth

Zodiac-signs-black-gold_Libra.jpg

It's the season of the harvest, and it's safe to say, the leaves aren't the only ones changing.

All is cyclical. As the leaves begin changing form, parts of us also start withering away, to eventually start again. October has arrived and the magic of Libra season is swirling in the Autumn breeze. Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, so we're already more than half way through the astrological calendar. In astrology, Libra is a symbol of balance, justice, and partnership. This is precisely because the sign of the scales is ruled by gorgeous Venus, planet of love, beauty, pleasure, relationships, and values. Libra is a cardinal sign, just like Cancer and Capricorn, as they each mark the beginning of a season. While Virgo is a symbol of the completed individual, Libra is the first encounter we have with others, and in the eyes of this charming cardinal-air sign, the other person is their equal. Aside from this, the sign of the scales represents the development of our aesthetic, which is why Venus’ children live for all things related to beauty and harmony. How are you integrating yourself into the lives of your loved ones? Are the people in your life measuring up to your self worth? It's the season of the harvest, and it's safe to say, the leaves aren't the only ones changing.

ARIES

It’s not you, it’s them...or is it? With the sun traveling through your charming seventh house of relationships since Sept. 22, you’ve been devoting the majority of your time to your current partnerships, which is oh-so-appropriate for this whimsical Libra season. Meanwhile, Venus, goddess of love, is trapped in the underworld in smoldering Scorpio, bringing you closer to the shadowy depths of your relationships. In fact, you might already be having sudden epiphanies about the people in your life. However, this is nothing compared to what could be revealed once Venus goes retrograde on Oct. 5. In the meantime, chances are you’ll have your mind on your money, and your money on your mind, as Venus Rx will highlight all things related to your values during this time. The new moon in Libra on Oct. 8, brings new beginnings to your partnership zone, aka your seventh house of relationships, and other people in general. Remember, Venus is retrograde in Scorpio, and Libra is ruled by Venus. What I’m trying to say is, this Libra season won’t feel like your typical season of the scales, as it will have an extra Scorpionic feel to it. Nevertheless, this new moon is a good time to hash things out with an ex-friend, love, colleague, etc. Truth is, the energy of Libra is here to help us find harmony, and in Scorpio, our emotions can run deep, so it’s best to take advantage of this time to make things right. Mercury enters Scorpio and your spooky eighth house of depth and intimacy on Oct. 9—sparking your intuition to the next level, and really reminding you to read between the lines. In fact, this could also be an excellent time to organize your finances, given that Venus is already here, too. In the meantime, there will be some intense taboo topics swirling, and you’ll be in the mood to play detective. The sun joins Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter on Oct. 23, when it enters mysterious Scorpio, bringing what’s normally hidden beneath the surface to the forefront. Like I said, this month is overflowing with Scorpionic influence, so there really is no escaping the plutonian feels. On a brighter note, the full moon in Taurus on Oct. 24 illuminates your second house income, values, and self-worth. Think back to the new moon in Taurus back in May. Were you working towards anything related to your finances? What about your self worth? Who knows, maybe this is a lucky time for you, and you suddenly come up with some much-needed cash. Either way, this is still a good time for you to make negotiations, and ultimately prosper. The moon will be in Leo and your fifth house of creative expression on Halloween night, so you’ll be feeling extra festive this year, Aries babe. Have fun!

The new moon in Libra on Oct. 8 brings new beginnings to your taboo-loving eighth house, so don’t be afraid to go deep. Your intuition will be razor sharp, so let your conscious be your guide. Mercury the messenger will enter Scorpio on Oct. 9, and your travel sector, sparking some intense urges to travel and see the world. For the record, Mercury in Scorpio is obsessive, intense, and pretty damn psychic, so if you happen to run into a lucky number, or decide to embark on a spontaneous journey, I highly suggest you wait until the end of the month, as Venus will still be retro in this area of your chart. The sun joins Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter in this area of your chart on Oct. 23, aka Scorpio season, shedding its light on all that’s been brewing since Oct. 5. Are you ready to make that big move? I know you’re a worrier, Pisces, but you need to remember to have faith. After all, you are the sign of universal truths and spiritual surrender. You could teach the rest of the zodiac a thing or two, trust me. The full moon in Taurus on Oct. 24 illuminates your chatty third house of siblings, communication, and immediate circle. Think back to the new moon in Taurus, back in May of this year, in terms of your relationships. How are things with your siblings? Does your communication style measure up to your self worth? What kind of thoughts do you have on a regular basis? Take care of you, Pisces. You are not your bad thoughts. Halloween will be fun, but your mind will be swirling with thoughts, as there are big shifts happening. Remember, what’s meant to be, will be. Don’t overthink it. SURRENDER.
