Balance The Scales
Libra is the star sign representing balance and weighing things up. The key to the Libra scales is to remember that it’s a constant balancing act rather than finding a permanent state of equilibrium. This is important for you because of the strong emphasis on Libra throughout the coming month.
Your planet, Venus, is here until the 8th and other key planets are dancing in Libra’s star sign too:
- Mercury (communication) until the 3rd
- The Sun (essence, ego) until the 23rd
- Mars (action/drive) from the 4th
Libra rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and health. It’s about the basics of life and doing whatever’s needed to feel well in your mind, body and spirit. If the work/life balance is out in any way, start to recalibrate those scales as soon as October begins.
Dreams & Big Life Goals
Some of you may have some big choices to make this month around travel or study. This is because the slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, are in Capricorn and this sector of your horoscope.
Plus, Pluto turns direct on the 3rd, two days after it squares your planet, Venus, in Libra. Therefore, Pluto’s energy is intense as it never moves away from 20 degrees Capricorn throughout October.
You may be weighing up what you can and can’t do this month or be considering your plans for the year ahead. Try not to slip into impossibility if things aren’t working out, whether work is busy or the opposite and you’re out of work, or you need to prioritise your health.
Do what you must for now but know too that Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, will join Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn early December. With Jupiter in this sector of your horoscope for the following year, some of your big plans and dreams will come true.
Full Moon Vibes
The Full Moon on the 13th is the peak of the Libra star sign energy as it pulls in power planet, Pluto. It may be a super-busy weekend for you. Or perhaps, you recognise that you’re feeling worn out and you need to rest.
Ideally, focus on your life in the here and now and take one day at time. Do the best you can with what you have and prioritise your well-being.
Plus, you do have lucky Jupiter on your side during the Full Moon. Jupiter is currently in Sagittarius and your joint finance sector.
Play your cards right and you could do well financially, whether via a property move or a savvy work decision. Let go of what’s not working out and reorient your compass mid-month.
Sex & Relationships
On the 8th, your planet Venus changes star sign and dives deep into Scorpio and your relationship sector. This is a peak month of the year for your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional.
Venus in Scorpio is seductive and passionate and can enjoy becoming embroiled in a ‘dangerous liaison’. If you’re hoping to improve your sex life, crack on while Venus is doing her stuff in sexy Scorpio until the end of the month.
Also, talk planet, Mercury, is in Scorpio from the 3rd. Expect soul-mate connections, intense self-analysis and a deep understanding and insight into other people’s behaviour.
This Mercury wants to get to the bottom of things and explore personal connections to the full. It’s an ideal month for detective work, counselling & therapy, solving mysteries and puzzles.
Notice who comes into your life this month, especially someone persuasive or charismatic. Mars is your partner planet in Libra from the 4th onwards.
Mars and Venus, the lovers of the heavens, are in mutual reception, which means they are in each other’s sign of rulership; Venus in Scorpio, Mars in Libra. Ideally, this is about finding the person you can work with, the person whose skills or talents complement your own.
It could indicate a passionate romance or a new partnership situation that helps and supports you. Finding the right health expert, for example. Or a personal trainer or accountant, even an undertaker if one is called for.
In fact, it’s through other people that you can find the solutions to some issues or problems that arise. Get the right person on your team and you can not only network further and wider but find a way to tick off a travel or study plan. This peaks for you from the 20th to the 25th of the month, when your planet Venus has support from other key planets.
Also, the New Moon in Scorpio is intriguing for you on the 28th because Mercury and Venus unite in Scorpio on the 30th. This could definitely be a peak period for love and/or partnership.
However, this is also a month when you might discover more about Uranus’ transit through your star sign, Taurus. This is especially true for you if your birthday falls on April 24th or 25th. Uranus is in action this month on the 7th, 12th and 28th, the day of the New Moon.
Uranus craves freedom whereas Scorpio likes to connect on a deep level meaning that opposing forces kick in. This would be an ideal month to break free from a toxic relationship or a partnership that’s overly weighted towards power and control.
It suggests excitement in relationships too and being willing to explore unknown territory. There’s always an ‘anything goes’ theme when Uranus is strong.
Finally, it’s important to note that Mercury turns retrograde on the last day of October, Halloween. The talk planet remains on go slow from October 31st until November 20th. This is when relationships could take a shady turn or dive deeper into the realm of unknowingness.
It’s hard to know your own feelings let alone what someone feels when Mercury’s in retreat in Scorpio’s deep emotional realms. Get your 1-to-1’s clear before then and ask those all important questions sooner rather than later.
