What to expect in October…

October begins with Mercury Retrograde going against its ordinary current by stopping at a standstill. The apparent backward motion allows your mind to take introspection and in Libra, this means a revision of communication and making necessary adjustments in your relationship dynamics. Let go of the usual Mercury Retrograde faux pas and consider this period as an opportunity for recalibration through release and surrender. Any old wounds that resurface are here for another lap of healing. Mercury will station direct on the 19th.
The New Moon in Libra on the 6th beckons a new beginning in relations and seriously flirts with contemplation. At this juncture “weigh-in” despite any external pressure on which relationships, both old and new that foster peace and require attention. Notice where you are emotionally imbalanced and cultivate calm through the appreciation of beauty. Notice the shades of a sunset or how beautiful your friends smile breathes peace. It is not the time to make rash decisions that do not align. Instead take small steps based on seeing things objectively rather than seeking the need for approval.
On the 7th Venus enters Sagittarius with the intent to establish relationships that will help you widen your perspective of the world, as well as how much you value freedom. In the context of the world, how can you find freedom outside the constraints of external circumstances? How can you delight in the unfamiliar by changing routines, tastebuds and permitted postcodes?
The Aries Full Moon on the 21st comes in with crimson red lips and fire beneath her feet. This lunation illuminates the theme of how can you maintain your internal essence, maintain your individuality, and maintain your position yet accept, listen, balance all perspectives other than your own? At this juncture hold boundaries and take care of your wounds; they are containers for growth.
As above, so below

October Horoscopes

Please read your Rising Sign first.
ARIES
mar 21 - apr 20
October is about cultivating the golden ratio within relationships and partnerships. A familiar dance of “I v. We” and in the spirit of give and take, how can you do your own thing and yet do it with someone else? Mercury Retrograde in Libra may be a rehearsal of old wounds that you thought you have laid to bed. This review is a moment to take a breath before hitting send, to see other’s perspectives and practice the art of assertion without aggression. Wounds not fully forgiven are just here for another round of healing and honest reflection. Let the light return by understanding that co-operation doesn’t mean losing sight of your own position, it simply allows for different desires and needs to be integrated. Sorry does not need to be the hardest word.
TAURUS
apr 21 - may 21

As your thoughts return to the moments your toes landed on foreign shores and the exploration of unfamiliar landscapes, your heart beckons for freedom. In the context of the world, stale situations and old routines require exploration of outside the norm even if exotic destinations are not on the agenda. Venus in Sagittarius this month is about relationships and conversations that liberate and widen your perspective of the world. Restore faith in the beauty of adventure by reviewing old patterns. Lean into what is not comfortable, try different cuisines, burn scents from faraway lands or find simple moments under the Sun that easily kindle reflection, growth, and honesty.
GEMINI
may 22 - jun 21
The final apparent backwards spin of your ruling planet Mercury is here for the year. Mercury Retrograde in Libra traverses the part of your chart that holds containers for self-expression until the 19th. A review of how you show yourself, what you have and what you can do requires creative thinking. You can let the usual Mercury Retrograde faux pas take centre stage or reflect on your inherent worth through joy, pleasure, and romance. Whilst you are a maverick in the area of multiple agendas this month wants you to rethink visibility and slow down to invest in playful thinking, sharing ideas and collaborations that facilitate intellectual and creative expression.
CANCER
jun 22 - jul 21
Conversations return home in October asking you to be no longer be stuck in a particular painful narrative with those you love. Leaning into hard conversations this month requires a close look at the nature of the hurt itself. Reimaging your relation to heartache starts with addressing what has been simmering underneath the surface through understanding all angles and all perspectives. Forgiveness does not eliminate the wound it draws you closer to the compassion of the source. If words evade you under the Mercury Retrograde in Libra, take pen to paper and get clear in your head before engaging in conversation.  This is a moment to release a burden that is no longer yours to carry; peace awaits.

LEO
jul 22 - aug 22
October wants you to not make Mercury Retrograde in Libra a thing by overly dramatising the technology glitches, spelling errors and miscommunications but rather take it as a second chance to reconnect with others. This month may bring blasts from the past or locating lost memories that have you reaching out to your chosen family. Pay attention to who dances across your thoughts and dreams. Deciding which old ghosts to revisit will need to be felt in the gut first, does the thought of them tickle a little bit of excitement and humour? Use your Leo intuition and then act on initiating conversations that may just birth a new sparkle into your current progress.
VIRGO
aug 23 - sept 22
Do you know how worthy you are? This month will allow you to take introspection towards your feelings on self-worth, innate resources, and financial values. Mercury Retrograde in Libra retraces your steps across these domains to review your worthy investments. Calling for subtle negotiations if they no longer meet your values. You use your powers of discrimination to dive into money management, redo budgets and go through any contracts with a fine-toothed comb and then check again. Do what you do best by bringing order to the chaos with the focus being on using your resources to best serve the here and now.

LIBRA
sept 23 - oct 22
Happy Rotations dear Libra, savour the present moment. Let go of feelings of where you should be or how much you should have done, let the lights pause on your face with grace. Mercury Retrograde in Libra may have you experiencing extensional faux pas such as saying the wrong thing at the wrong time however, your smile and the glimmer of your eyes, no doubt will be the healing balm needed to restore peace. Golden moments aside, this Retrograde is seeking introspection about your identity and autonomy. The more you release and surrender outdated aspects of your being the more room there is to shine.

SCORPIO
oct 23 - nov 21
October asks you to temporarily retreat behind the scenes instead of focusing on an existential crisis. Mercury Retrograde in Libra dances across your subconscious realms ushering you to rest and recalibrate. Introspection is the very state that births new imagination and courage. Tend to the weeds of your shadow to resolve any inner conflict and negative thought patterns. You have permission to not put yourself out there and in doing so you fortify the strength of your convictions. And in this break, your body mends and new perspectives are nourished. Rested, you will be ready to come out of the shadows next month for your time to be seen.
SAGITTARIUS
nov 22 - dec 21
This month wants you to revise how and where you distribute your fire. Mercury Retrograde in Libra wants you to review the direction you aim your bow in the hope of a better future. After a careful revision of your ideals and inspirations, it is wise to connect with friends, communities and groups that align with your trajectory. Although your generous spirit will be felt through the digital world take note of miscommunications when articulating your visions. Sometimes it takes a step back to feel how you do not feel at home in the world to find the step next forward in reaching your ideal horizon.
CAPRICORN
dec 22 - jan 20
October takes you towards a conversation with your relationship to your vocation and your fellow work colleagues. Mercury Retrograde in Libra is here for you to review if your work still illuminates the territory you seek. Is the influence you exert in your current workplace purely for monetary reasons or does it truly align with your desires to be seen in the social world? While these questions are beckoning in the background the show must go on until you have come to a deeper understanding. With the Retrograde in mind, take time to diligently rework, get clear and negotiate the common goal to ensure your authentic watermark pays off.
AQUARIUS
jan 20 - feb 18
Recall the books you want to read, the courses you wish to delve into and the podcasts you long to absorb as October is here for you to review the limiting model of your worldview that no longer engages or intellectually challenges you. Mercury Retrograde in Libra may spark a fortuitous conversation around the topics of your higher mind and spiritual philosophy. This journey into the unfamiliar territory of profound mental study allows for creative expression to take the lead through satisfying your thirst for new knowledge. Take a Birdseye view of the pathways to follow then go where the wind takes you. The rest of the world awaits your genius.
PISCES
feb 18 - mar 20
Mercury Retrograde in Libra lures you in to interpret life’s enigmas and all that is concealed to regenerate your physical and psychological wellbeing. While October indicates a need to probe into the cryptic and taboo, the Retrograde period is asking you to revise the energy you put into your shared resources. Lean into your fluidity this month as you will be asked to dance with the timelines of others. Using the art of compromise work together to get a clarity of vision before moving along with the call from the creative muse. Navigating the invisible thread that binds you to your intimate contacts will see either imagination birthed or holding your power accountable.
