It’s not like an Aries to play coy, to go dark, to disappear on the down-low, but this is very much the vibe for the first half of October. Most Aries are more than likely out of the social fray and beavering away on some top secret project that you vaguely hint about on social media, daring anyone to ask just what the hell you are up to. But something, assuredly, is in the works. It’s also likely you are wrestling with the mechanics of your own mind and heart, wondering if there’s a spring (or a screw) loose. Are you crazy for wanting what or who you want? I am here to tell you: yes, you are crazy—not for wanting, but for doubting. Doubting your gorgeousness, doubting your ability, doubting that this person or project is ever going to pan out. A doubtful Aries is a cranky Aries, and this month you have to watch a tendency to be irritable as a sort of self-defensive mechanism. The Universe could deliver surprising love or financial news from the 7th to the 13th of the month—and this should put the kibosh on your crankiness. Your personal full moon arrives on Sunday, October 13th—and more good news is on its way, thanks to supportive energy from Jupiter in Sagittarius. That project you’ve been working on—that transformation of doubt into belief—reaches a culmination, a turning point. Finally, you’re ready for your close-up under the light of the full moon—and it reveals just how much you are, indeed, loved and appreciated by those who truly get you. You could be making a big announcement around this time, especially if your birthday falls between the 10th and 14th of April. From mid-October onward, you’re dealing with career matters, as Mars (your ruler) transits Libra and squares Saturn and the South node in Capricorn. Watch the 22nd and the 27th for this energy — as some sort of unfair decision may be made by higher ups, giving you yet another sign that you will soon need to cut ties with a job situation that you have clearly outgrown (and that, let’s face it, bores you). The key to working with this energy is to discipline yourself to respond rather than react, and wait for the right timing to hatch your escape plan. The Scorpio new moon on the 28th is a time to re-evaluate the status of your personal transformation and to be ruthlessly honest with yourself about the current state of your all your resources—mental, emotional, physical, and financial, for the time is soon coming when you’ll need to bring it, and bring it hard, as only an Aries can do.Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy.

Love has expanded your world the last few months, Taurus, as you’ve likely been loved up by some sexy new person or have thrown yourself heart and soul into a passion project. And yet with this expansion has come a contraction—a pulling back from looking at all the tender places from the past, and one wound in particular that is still rather raw. Love has, of course, tremendous healing properties. This month the energies support ripping off the bandage and letting love work its magic. A pressing situation could erupt around the 4th through 10th as Mars enters Libra, your sixth house of health, and opposes Chiron in Aries. Chiron is stirring your subconscious in order for you to release some dysfunctional behaviors that directly impact your relationships and your creativity. A heart to heart conversation is likely to occur at the full moon in Aries on October 13th, happening in your 12th house of secrets and revelations. Jupiter in Sagittarius—your eighth house of healing and transformation—lends a supportive vibe at this time. Venus in Scorpio—your seventh house of partnerships—opposite Uranus in your sign signals that the response you get from sharing the real you at last could be surprising indeed. As Venus trines Neptune on October 21st, you’ll feel the sweet release of a psychic burden that’s been weighing you down for far too long. October is all about you taking love and creativity to a deeper level. Yes, you’ll still be enjoying champagne and sunshine, but you will also find a deeper level of intimacy and authenticity in your current connection or creative project—and intimacy and authenticity are the very things that help sustain a situation for the long-term. As the Sun moves into Scorpio on the 23rd, you’ll feel reborn. Look to the 28th of the month for a special sign indicating where the next chapter of life will be taking you. Write down what is revealed to you—and keep it close to your heart so that its manifestation powers are amplified. Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy.

You don’t like to be a meanie, Gemini, but these last few months you’ve felt like one—letting people know (with salty wit and some good old fashioned f bombs) where they cannot continue to mess with you. All of it was very trying and tiring. So it may seem strange to you this month, Gemini, that you’re no longer fighting with the arduous energies of discombobulation brought about by having to draw strong boundaries. October is a refreshing reminder that life is beautiful. You’ll feel in tune, in time, in step with the dance of flow. Recent events—and your triumph over them—have shown you to be resilient and resourceful. Now here come the rewards. This month brings you new opportunities to connect, create, and communicate with fresh faces and fresh inspirations. Jupiter is still transiting your 7th house of relationships until early December. If your birthday falls between June 10th and the 21st, you will feel this energy most strongly as Jupiter will be opposite your Sun. You have the urge to get out and about, to travel, to explore, to feel a heart-expanding happiness that comes about when we are truly connected to our core and living from our truth. At the full moon on October 13th, good luck arrives from friendly group associations: you could get introduced to someone who soon becomes important in your life in a personal and/or professional sense. An important wish could manifest mid-month, or perhaps a mini financial windfall. Around the 28th of the month, a new romantic possibility or creative project opens up a portal of further personal transformation when Mars in Libra (your fifth house of love and creativity) squares Saturn in Capricorn (your eighth house of intimacy and healing). At this time, you may do the typical Gemini thing of overthinking the pros and cons of committing to a certain course of action. I suggest waiting until early December to make a decision, as Mercury goes retrograde on October 31st. More information will come to light in November, and you’ll want to mull that over before taking the plunge into a commitment that will affect your life for at least the next 15 months.Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy.

Your sense of home, your sense of place in the world, your sense of occupying a sweet space in someone’s heart—all of these are emphasized in October’s energies, Cancer. You more than any other sign know how important it is to be needed, to be wanted—and how hard the struggle is to let down your guard and let people into your world. Cancer rules the castle—and most Cancers have a moat, a drawbridge, and guards at the gate—with their heart safely tucked away in a velvet lined box, kept in a vault that only can be unlocked with a key kept close to Cancer’s heaving bosom. In October, you’ll want to keep that key handy. Mars is transiting your fourth house of home, while Venus and Mercury make their entrance into your fifth house of romance and creativity. Someone’s knocking at your door, somebody’s ringing the bell…will you do yourself a favor and let them in? Could just be a repairman to adjust the deadbolt on your chamber door…but my, don’t they have a sexy smile…or this could be new love arriving on your doorstep. Yes, Cancer, you’re letting your guard down this month and having some much needed and long overdue conversations about what needs to be repaired in your life—whether that’s things around the home—and/or mistakes others have made in handling your sensitive heart. You may be surprised around the 12th of October when someone’s sweet gesture reveals how much they care. Career takes precedence at mid-month with the full moon in Aries, your tenth house, on October 13th. Mercury in Scorpio is sextile Saturn in Capricorn, your seventh house of partnership, so it is likely you are discussing career commitments with your partner, evaluating how the next chapter of your career life will impact your time together. The energy is conducive for a sensible discussion—one that could see you deciding to move on in the near future — and possibly even downsize in order to de-stress your life. On October 28th, as Mars and Saturn square off in the skies, you have the impetus to start the ball rolling on de-cluttering, repairing, and reconfiguring your living arrangements in order to commit to a future that makes more room in your life for love and creativity.

In many respects, your journey on an entirely new path has just begun, and yet a fork in the road is coming up fast in October—and you, quite frankly, did not expect this new development. Around the 7th surprising intel arrives, a whispered secret, an intuitive hint or nudge, perhaps even office gossip. There’s a clue here, Leo, so pay attention. You won’t have to make a decision about what to do with the info and which way to go until the full moon in Aries on the 13th, which happens in your mind-blown ninth house of the higher mind. Something could seriously rock your world at that time, showing you the potential of this new path. But what is revealed could also cause some confusion as you try to see your way through some deception that could be surfacing in close relationships. Someone could be trying to unduly influence your decision, making you doubt yourself. Try to keep your own counsel at mid-month. It is possible that the decision you make this month will be quite surprising to those who thought they knew you well—and that includes yourself! On October 21st Venus in Scorpio makes a lovely trine to Neptune in Pisces. This supportive energy affects your fourth house of stability and your eighth house of healing and transformation. It is possible that a new influx of cash releases you from an obligation that has been a burden, such as paying off a long-standing debt. Another possibility is that you are very much in need of a vacation, Leo, and the Universe helps you figure out a way to manifest the cash you need to take a restorative holiday. An emotional purging, a social media detox, a long session in a sauna sweating out heavy metals is also another way to work with this energy. The new moon in Scorpio on October 27th sees you taking the first steps on that new path, one that has you traveling more lightly than you have in quite a while. October is a time when many ghosts from your past can finally be laid to rest—and honestly, you will feel very relieved as a result.

October might feel like the day after a big party—you’ve got a splitting headache, feel a little achy from overdoing the disco on the dance floor, and are wondering if anyone is going to help you clean up the confetti and get the wine stain out of the sofa. Your birthday month—with its pile up of planetary energy in your sign boosting your energy and propelling you to new heights and new triumphs—was probably pretty spectacular. But now here you are in October and the energy has shifted. For one, it’s time to reckon with your checkbook as Mars transits your second house of money starting October 4th. You really want to get your finances in order this month, Virgo, as an unexpected expense could pop up toward the end of the month, around the 27th-29th, possibly involving a car repair or a visit to the dentist. This month’s energy also supports you sending belated birthday thank you texts and sweet words of encouragement to your crew—some of whom have felt a bit neglected of late because you’ve simply been too busy to keep up. At mid month the full moon in Aries highlights your eighth house of healing and transformation. Taking a much needed time out to get your head together is a good idea. You probably need to restore your equilibrium after so much past-faced change last month. Pay attention also to any inflammatory flare-ups of muscles and aggravation of allergies this month. Like Leo, you could benefit from a detox this month. On October 21st there’s a lovely Venus / Neptune trine from Scorpio, your third house, to Pisces, your seventh house. If you were having doubts about someone’s feelings, you could be pleasantly surprised at what he or she reveals at this time. The energy on October 28th encourages you tap into your intuition, as it springs into overdrive. You can download at least one excellent money-making idea, the potential of which could astound even you, dear practical Virgo. Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy.

Happy Birthday, Libra! Please don’t tell me you’ve given up birthday cake because it has too many empty calories. In October you deserve a little sugar (Literally and figuratively)—not just because it’s your birthday month, but because a spoonful of sugar can indeed help the medicine go down. And that “medicine” has been rather distasteful lately when it comes to the planetary energy in your fourth house of security, home, foundations, family. Just when you think you get a sense of calm in these areas, another situation develops and forces you to make a tough decision. As Pluto goes direct on October 3rd, you could be facing another difficult choice, but with Mars in your sign, you finally feel like you have the willpower to get the job done—no matter how challenging. Someone is likely not going to appreciate that you made up your mind, and they may try to change it, thinking they can manipulate you like they may have done before. But this time, they will be in for a surprise. If anything, recent experiences have taught you that you must consider your own needs first, as others are not likely going to do that for you. The full moon on October 13th illuminates Aries, your seventh house of relationships. Pay careful attention to what people do around this time, not what they say. You like to see the best in people, Libra, and you will see very clearly who to put your faith in now, and in the near future. Jupiter in Sagittarius in trine to the full moon indicates that at least one person can be relied on—probably someone you consider like a brother or sister. Venus enters your second house of self-esteem and income on October 8th, so this month could bring kudos, compliments, and cold hard cash. You may splash out on hiring a trainer at the gym, getting a massage, or investing in a new diet program around the 21st. Money is again in the frame on the 27th and 28th, as the new moon in Scorpio breathes fresh life into your finances. You could start a savings or investment program or manifest a new source of income. You will also be feeling very proud of yourself for having handled a difficult family situation with grace and honesty. Light those candles on your cake and wish with all your heart, Libra, for manifesting more love, more joy, and more freedom in the coming year, for these absolutely can be yours.Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy.

Those who don’t understand Scorpio may think that you answer to some dark overlord, but that is so far from the truth…well it’s far from the truth in the sense that the dark overlord is not some alien from another galaxy or some demon conjured up by the dark of the moon. No, a Scorpio is only beholden to the vast ocean of desire with its windswept shores and rocky cliffs. Sometimes even you are amazed at how calm this ocean can be and yet at other times it scares even you, a little, brave Scorpio, when the roiling waves stir up the depths. On October 4th, As Mars enters Libra, your twelfth house of the subconscious, all sorts of buried treasure—both gold doubloons and broken pieces of china—wash up on shore. The first week of October could have you sorting through what’s worth keeping and what is worth tossing overboard, so to speak—and this applies to relationships, jobs, possessions, and beliefs. After Venus enters your sign on October 8th to join Mercury also in your sign, you will be able to have that long overdue conversation with yourself about exactly what the hell has been going on with you lately. It’s time to admit to yourself what you really want because having Venus in your sign is prime manifestation energy you do not want to waste. The full moon on October 13th illuminates your sixth house of work and health—and some Scorpios need to get brutally honest about how they have or have not been doing right by themselves when it comes to self-care. From the 21st onward, you should find the energy a little easier. There’s a gorgeous Venus/Neptune trine from your sign to your fifth house of love and creativity. Plunge deep into the flow of following your bliss—there’s sure to be at least one beautiful result of doing so. The sun enters your sign on October 23rd and your personal new moon arrives on October 27th, just as the sun opposes Uranus in Taurus. Won’t you be surprised when a secret admirer is revealed, affecting your love and business fortunes in a positive way. Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy.

This month the fog should lift, Sagittarius, and with the easing of confusion comes the dawn of a brand new day. For the past month, your ruler, Jupiter, has been in a difficult square with Neptune in Pisces. Trying to get a handle on your feelings, on finding some sort of beacon of hope and security in all the madness has been challenging. In October there’s one little last tempest in a teacup to navigate concerning your self-worth and finances. It’s all likely to kick off on October 3rd when Pluto goes direct in your second house of money and values, and Mercury enters Scorpio, your twelfth house of the subconscious. Yes, you can rise to whatever challenge this situation presents, as long as you have faith in yourself. It is possible that you’ve been hoping some miracle would solve your financial issues, rather than realizing that you are the miracle—that what is required now is Saturn’s discipline, work ethic, and adherence to a budget as it continues to move through your money zone. The energy around the 7th demands that you look honestly at the gap between your dreams and the money needed to fund them. It’s really time to deal with any limiting beliefs you still have around being able to manifest what you need. The full moon in Aries on October 13th lights up your fifth house of love and creativity, and sends bright beams to Jupiter in your sign. Someone shows up big time for you, giving you a welcome boost and perhaps even a shoulder to cry on as you release all the frustration of the last several months. This cathartic, mascara-melting ugly cry will help to flush the toxins of self-doubt from your system. From the 21st on, you should feel a palpable shift in the energy, and your mind feels more clear than it has in quite a while. Around the 28th, you’ll see how strong the mind/body connection is, and thus how crucial it is to let go of limiting beliefs and toxic thought patterns. You could experience a spontaneous mental, emotional, and/or physical healing. In October you finally drop anchor into much more calming waters. And by your birthday, you will start to see tangible results of your hard work this month. Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy. And if you need support navigating a personal situation, book a reading with me.
The Universe is turning up the dial on its energetic transformation of your life, Capricorn, as Pluto goes direct in your sign on October 3rd. Downloads of inspiration and information will come in thick and fast and you will need to be of sound mind and body as you deal with the intensity, much of which probably has to do with career. Mars enters this area of your chart on October 4th and encourages you to forge ahead with a project you’ve been working on the last five months. It’s time to stop fussing over the details and just make the damn thing happen already. You’re likely to feel this energy most intensely around October 7th as the sun in Libra squares Saturn in your sign; you truly want to make your mark on the world. Venus enters Scorpio, your house of wishes and dreams on the 8th, signaling that this is indeed the time to seize your moment and show your work. At the full moon in Aries on October 13th, a problematic situation involving your living situation—perhaps even dating back to 2011—will be resolved. Issues surrounding a parent could also be highlighted now, and a decision may need to be made about their care. Good news arrives for you on the 21st, as a wish connected with romance and/or a creative project comes true. Again, this is something you’ve been wanting to manifest for quite a while, so the realization of this dream will feel especially sweet. The new moon in Scorpio on October 27th starts a whole new cycle for you in terms of amplifying your magnetic manifestation powers. You’re beginning to feel a renewed positivity in your life, as certain things start coming together much more easily and beneficially. Sure, the energy is still intense—and it will be for a while as we move toward January 2020. And sure, there may still be some poignant moments as certain people and situations leave your life. But in October you have a much surer sense that whatever happening is clearing the way on your path, and is not a stumbling block to manifesting your long-desired, bright future. Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy. And if you need support navigating a personal situation, book a reading with me.
This month is all about having the courage to admit to yourself what you really want. Energy is being stirred up in your subconscious as Pluto goes direct on October 3rd, urging you to pay attention to your psychic radar. Something new is coming into your field of vision this October while Mars powers through your ninth house of expanding your horizons. You’re on a personal quest this month, Aquarius, to delve deep into Who You Really Are and how you have changed over the last two years. So much has happened that you may not have had a chance to assimilate it all and understand how this new you has new dreams and goals. When Venus enters your 11th house of hopes and wishes on October 8th, you may surprise even yourself by finally giving yourself permission to admit that you want to pursue an entirely new way of life. The full moon in Aries on October 13th helps you plan on paper what these new goals are and what you can do to make them happen. Mid-month would be an ideal time to make a vision board for your future. Just be careful with whom you share your new plans—the full moon can definitely illuminate who in your world truly supports you and who may say they support you, but behind your back they sabotage your efforts. When Venus in Scorpio plays nice with Neptune in Pisces on October 21st, a sign from the Universe arrives just in time to give you the push to start making this new dream happen. You could get the financing you need, solid support from a true friend, and a confidence boost that affirms you’re headed in the right direction. A situation around the 27th and 28th shows that a choice needs to be made to free yourself from some burden, block, or unnecessary duty that keeps you from feeling free enough to do what you want. Some Aquarians need to cut a psychic cord that is keeping you tied to Mama’s apron strings, so to speak. There’s a real opportunity at the end of the month to heal ancestral patterns that have held you back so that you can move forward more freely and confidently into the next chapter of your life. Let me know in the comments what’s going on for you with this energy. And if you need support navigating a personal situation, book a reading with me.
The getting and spending of your time, money, and emotional energy are on your mind this month, Pisces. A situation in your life has been too much of a drain on your spirit and also possibly on your bank account, and in October the Universe gives you the kick in the ass you need to fix the situation once and for all. For some Pisces, you will be severing a connection, and for others, you will draw firmer boundaries that prevent someone from taking advantage of you the way they have done. You’ll feel this transformative energy start to kick in around the 4th of October when Mars moves into your 8th house of resources. While it is noble that you give people the benefit of the doubt, the energy shows you this month that you have to balance things out in your favor and put yourself first. The full moon on October 13th, occurring in your second house of values and money, brings the energy to a climatic finish—and there could be a difficult but very necessary conversation at this time. You simply will not put up with another person’s continual trashing of your values and disrespect of all that you have given them—and that includes your money. Once you tell them no, you will see very clearly how little they actually valued you—they are liable to badmouth you to others, for example, or start parading around a new lover on social media a day after the break-up. It may feel a bit disheartening, Pisces, after all that you have given them, but it is time for you to find situations that energetically enhance your life rather than suck you dry. A beautiful trine between Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in your sign on the 21st starts your emotional turn-around. Do something nice for yourself on that day to enhance your good vibes. At the new moon on October 27th, you will feel refreshed, reborn, and reinvigorated as you start to gain back all the energy that was previously taken up by ungrateful associations.
