October is a month of both healing and extreme transformation, all for the sake of balance and harmony to be placed back into our lives. We have an Aries Full Moon on the October 4, which brings forth a wave of conflict for the sake of making waves to usher in this newly adopted awareness that will help bring that balance. Just remember – when things seem to be falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.
Venus moves into Libra, where it is it’s strongest and at home. However, we do have a lot of opposition here from other placements, and so rather than having a smooth sailing ride, this energy is gifted for the sake of creating the alchemy needed to make the changes in our lives.
Jupiter moves into Scorpio on October 10, where it digs into deeper depths to bring forth hidden truths, and to also empower the gift of alchemy needed for change. On October 19, the Scorpio New Moon is going to amplify this energy, as well as usher in a dramatically healing Scorpio season which takes effect on October 22.
October will end on a quiet note, in the physical realm that is. The moon moves into Pisces, giving us the perfect energy to celebrate and connect with the spiritual realms. So have fun, and dress up before you head out to celebrate, just don’t play with any Ouija boards – because if you want a sign the spirit realm is real, you just may get it, since the veil is thin with Pisces.

It seems that there is a lot of healing energy going on for you this month, Aries. October starts off with a Full Moon in Aries which while the Sun in Libra. This counterbalance, or exchange in power that the moon is bringing, will kick your month off in finding balance within matters of the heart, and soul. You are embarking on a more, spiritual, journey this month, and you will feel the full effects of this Full Moon energy when it comes to peeling off layers, or rather, removing your warrior amour for the sake of feeling something deeper within the heart.
Remember, a cry for love doesn’t always come out of the softest – those who need it the most, may come about it in negative ways, or provoke and trigger a defensive response from you. You are impulsive, and with quick reflexes it is easy for you to respond with more fuel behind your fire than they can bring. However, it would be wise for you to transmute that energy, hold space for your loved ones, and help them shift that need for love into feeling loved.

You need to work on grounding this month, Taurus. While October is typically a Venus fueled month, being in the Sun of Libra whom also shares the planet of love with you as a home, this month you might feel a bit out of place. You will be looking for balance, but this needs to take place from within, otherwise your search will be endless.
Spirit wants you to know Taurus, that not all is bad as it seems, and to protect your thoughts to ensure you don’t create any negative self-fulfilling prophecies. You are holding onto something – a belief or an ideal which doesn’t serve you, but only separates you from your true divinity, and that is what places your focus on searching outwardly for the inner-peace you seek.
Spend time outside, or do a Moon Ritual during the Aries Full Moon on October 4 which focuses on the power of Self and Identity.

Choose your battles, Gemini. This month, it seems there is a lot of aggression in the air for you, and the result of what will happen is how you are able to counteract, or transmute it. Your best thing to do is be flexible, and open to the opinions or ideas of others, while still standing your ground. You can do this in a peaceful way, even if the opposing end doesn’t seem that way. The main thing to consider as well, that this battle, or opposition you will face is only temporary, and should be seen as a catalyst to help you adopt a higher awareness about something you are clinging tightly to.
Just remember, don’t shoot the messenger! You may even want to say that line to others whom you speak your truth to, and are unsettled with what you say. We need you Gemini, to speak to us in ways that might be a bit blunt, but are needed to trigger a response for change and positive intellectual expansion.
The October Full Moon in Aries on October 4, as well as the New Moon in Scorpio on October 19, are very Mars-fueled energies, so watch your tongue, but don’t hold it!

Oh cancer, your compassion and love for others can often get you into trouble, if you give the wrong people. I do feel that October is going to be a bit bumpy for you, in terms that you will be experience rather extreme highs and lows when it comes to feeling loved, and feeling misunderstood or lonely. The Moon, which your sign rules over, is coming under a lot of Mars energy, as we have a Full Moon in Aries on October 4, and a New Moon in Scorpio on the 19. I do feel that something is going to occur and ruffle up your feathers as October comes in, but you will begin to make sense of it, and bring about the peace or harmony you desire around the end of the month.
A lot of how you feel, is going to be in result of others around you. You are truly an emotional being, and are immensely receptive to the energy of others. You may be holding space for your loved ones, as they go through emotional shifts in finding inner balance and harmony – don’t overdo it and avoid making the space you need as well.

Mind over matter, Leo. Rest, relax, and take your mind off the little stresses which you often turn out to be much bigger. Nothing is bad as it seems, as your anxiety is more than likely a result from overworking, or overburdening yourself, and not leaving time to rest your mind.
You may want to work on transmuting minor upsets around you, by practicing more meditation and working on inner-balance. All starts with self! You often give so much to others, and while they say Leo is a very self-oriented sign that thrives off compliments, it is only because as a ruler of the Sun, you are here to see your light within the eyes of others, from the acts of service you preform. Now, October asks that you turn this gift your sign has, inwardly, and give back to yourself by holding space for your mind and soul to rest.

So many cards this month speak of balance, in just about every aspect I had pulled them for. This means that you need to slow down, and check your thoughts. What are you projecting? What are you perceiving? You might be seeing something for far worse than it is – actually, you probably are because it’s a Virgo’s nature to over-analyze and be ridden with anxiety.
The only way you can solve this battle though, is through speaking your truth. You need to address the issues that cause such an imbalance in your life which are the cause to you feeling so… “stuck”. You need to address these issues head on, because dwelling on them only builds more of an internal struggle which projects outwardly, creating more chaos for you.
Let others know where your limits and boundaries are. Draw the line, and speak up when others cross it.

Happy Birthday Libra! As you rule the Sun this month, you bring in a big boost towards areas of your family, career, and home life. You aren’t necessarily planting seeds, but in a sense, you will be after cultivating what you have already grown. This is like a harvest, but also a reset, or more like a transitional month for you, as you move beyond where you have been and expand onto something much higher.
Something that was once deeply rooted with you, will soon begin to blossom, and probably not in ways you had expected – it will be much better than you had thought!
You may receive a gift from someone older, or who holds more authoritive power than you, and this will be useful to add onto a goal or project, which may result in this blossoming effect.

Oh, Scorpio, you are in for a treat this month. A good one! I do feel that you will be receiving an invitation to take part in something, or be working on a group project that will truly uplift you. This is a major source of strength in your life, as you come together with others who are as passionate as you are for a certain cause. While it does feel that other cards show a bit of conflict in certain areas, I do feel that this month will be much smoother and these issues will not be too much of a problem to take care of.
As the New Moon occurs in Scorpio on October 19, you are going to be feeling more alive, empowered, and also deeply loved. You offer this for others in your space, constantly, and so it’s only fair that you are on the receiving end this month.

You feel blocked by something, Sagittarius, and it may stem from your perspective. You are having to tie up some loose ends, or bring an end to something that is mostly stemmed from within, in order to bring forth something new. You are in a transitional period this month, and will be experiencing a lot of good, but also a lot of bad - of course, it’s Libra season and everything is about balance.
You may experience some losses this month, and you will bring in some gains. These things will happen in different areas of your life, as the other cards I pulled for their placements will reveal.
I do feel that your best move this month, will be keeping a smile on your face and whistling while you pull up your sleeves and get to work on the upsets that arise – I also feel that these are derived from your past as well.

Everyone wants a little piece of you this month, Capricorn. You have something to offer which is highly valuable, and greatly appreciated, and you will feel this from others. It might be a bit weird for you, as you are truly modest and don’t do so well when overly complimented, but you are to take these with grace and keep putting out the good work that you do. You shine brightly this month, so take center-stage and let that light out.
You have a lot of positive things coming to you this month, so be mindful with your environmental influences and experiences – you do not want to get stuck in something low vibrational when there is something waiting for you on a higher frequency.

Things are looking up for you this month, Aquarius, and in very beneficial ways that are going to remove long-standing blockages which have kept you in a state of limbo, where you felt so very frustrated with being so stuck. You can finally leap forward, and others will also notice this newfound inner-strength, which will pull them towards you, allowing their applause to push you even further ahead of the game. While you don’t care much for outside gratification, this time around it means the world for you because I feel this is for a cause that truly sits deeply within your heart. You shine bright this month, and others really take notice, allowing you see that light which stems from within you, reflect from their eyes as they look upon you with admiration.
While this month isn’t all rainbows, as in some areas you will experience minor upsets, but overall, it does seem to more pleasant that these recent months. Finally, you can breathe Aquarius as the worst is over just in time for the end-of-the-year celebrations.

There is something you need to work on this month, Pisces, well, many things, and they stem from within you. You feel so much around you, and often neglect your own feelings, and this often causes disturbances in your life when you are actually hit with your own feels and are not sure on how to integrate them. Take a little time for you, to dive within, and to consider where these emotions are stemming from. They may deal with your self-worth, or even regrets you have over the past in where you didn’t show your best self, when it was needed.
You cannot dwell over the past, Pisces, you can only take what you had experienced and use it to set new intentions for the future. Do not allow yourself to get stuck in your head, and face this issue head on with confidence that you will not repeat the past, but may have the chance to redeem yourself.
