What will this month have in store for you?

Whether you’re a believer in astrology or not, let’s talk about the astrological events happening this month and exactly how your zodiac sign could be affected.


It’s Libra season!

This month starts off with a full moon in Aries, the sign of willpower and independence, on October 1st, which is a huge reminder to set goals high. Libra’s energy surges with a new moon midway through the month, reminding us to be aware of our partnerships and possible indecisiveness. This month also brings Mercury into retrograde, making it a time for missed opportunities and problems in communication. But don’t stress luckily, October wraps up with a special full moon known as the rare “Blue Moon” on the 31st in Taurus. So this is making this year’s Halloween a great time to wrap up any loose ends in your life as the end of the year approaches.


Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Relationships will become important to you with Venus entering Libra this month, so spend as much time as you can this month with the people that you care about. This could be a warning to reexamine exactly who you call your inner circle, so think about that and choose wisely. Work on communication and you’ll start to figure out exactly what you want the future to hold for you.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

For you, Scorpio, this month marks the time to get real about the value that each of your relationships hold, so expect some clarity about the people you surround yourself with. Remind yourself to remain open to other’s thoughts and ideas. Try not to forget that in some moments in life, solitude can equal clarity.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

It’s time for you to be humbled this. Stop always trying to always break away from the herd and maybe instead try to find where you actually belong. rethink about what exactly what you think success is, and maybe there’ll even be some new opportunities in the future.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This month, it looks like it’s time to slow down. You might be feeling like this is a time of intense pressure and that in order to get through it you have to constantly be hard at work, but now it’s time to relax. Reaffirm your worth and realize how much you’ve accomplished recently!


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Creative energy seems to be flowing your way this month, so take hold of it and channel it into something you’re passionate about. You love to think of yourself as a free spirit, so you thrive off of an unconventional approach to life, but don’t let those ideas of independence cause you to run from expressing your emotions. It’s time to open up to others and recognize that you’re kinda really worth it.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Your lack of motivation has been going on for too long and now more than ever you’ve just got to step things up and focus on how you can reframe your thinking towards passion and success. Introspection is key right now, just try not to let your brain lead you to fall into the rabbit hole of negative thoughts that you know so well.


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

With this month opening with a full moon in Aries, be open to learning about yourself and recognizing some of the problems that have been developing your life recently. Instead of wallowing in them, try to figure out what you can do to solve them and move forward. Give others a lending hand and allow them to give you the support you need.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

With a Blue Moon in Taurus closing out this month, you’ll find it’s the perfect time to build up your close friendships and be down-to-earth with the people around you. Basically, it’s time to take a chill pill and be happy with the pals you’ve made. Success also seems to be on its way to you soon, so keep your eyes peeled.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

So in all seriousness, everyone thinks you’re two-faced… And to be honest maybe sometimes you are but this month it’s time to move beyond other people’s perceptions of you and try to reframe your thinking around the future. Abundance is coming your way, so get excited and focus on how to use this time to work towards your goals.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This month, try to stop worrying about your need to seek validation from others. It’s time to find worth inside of yourself. You also need to take a step back, chill out and really come to value how far you’ve come.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

You’ve got some big dreams and this month it looks like it’s time to really start working towards them, even if it’s just in the smallest ways. Reassert your attitude and learn to treat people with more kindness than you might normally, karma will be your friend this October. Don’t forget to get in touch with nature this month, you’ll want to feel grounded through Mercury’s retrograde and work to overcome any issues in communication.


Virgo (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Virgo, it’s looking like maybe this month it’s time to examine some of your relationships and let go of some of the people that are around you. Get rid of any toxic energy you might be feeling this month. You’ve really got it going on, don’t let some mess that you can’t control weigh you down this October. It’s time to face October yourself.
