Your Monthly Horoscopes: October 2018

Your Monthly Horoscopes: October 2018

With the Fall Equinox settling in right before October arrives, and the change of seasons of the Earth, the fast moving energies of the summer will be slowing down.

Collectively, we will all be feeling the need to detach from things that don't feel right to us anymore, reflect on where our lives seem to be heading, and become more insular and cognizant of how we are transforming emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

The planetary activity is not as active in the sky as it has been, so for many of us, a feeling of calm, pause, balance, and retreat may be on our spirits.

Scorpio will be the month's MVP! Venus enters a retrograde in Scorpio on the 6th. A new moon illuminates the earth in Libra on the 9th, and Mercury is ready to set things off in Scorpio on the 10th.

There will be 10 days of quick interactions between multiple planets between October 11th through the 22nd, and the planetary movements become more energized with the Sun entering Scorpio on October 23rd. Lastly, a full moon will be arriving in Taurus on October 24th.

In the beginning of the month for Aries, Venus retrograding into Scorpio will show you how you have learned to curve certain impulses, temptations, ego, and shadow self-behaviors - or where you may need some more work. Though you may deal with dense emotions, situations, or thoughts, the work you have put in after an intense summer will have you starting the Fall season off in a higher vibrational state. You will more likely be able to observe yourself from a transformed state of realization and have a stronger ability to make better choices.

With Venus energy in Scorpio, don't be afraid to admit you are a total snack from the inside out who continues to embody your best self on the daily.

There will be a duo of back-to-back energies of the New Moon in Libra and Mercury entering Scorpio that will affect Aries starting on the 9th and 10th. First, the Libra New Moon will highlight the need for direction, balance, and understanding your next big step, choice, or life change. Don't throw all your eggs in one basket, but also don't plan so far ahead and become dead set on expectations. Secondly, Mercury entering Scorpio will send out some selfish vibes but not necessarily in a bad way. Wherever you have been over-extending yourself or losing your focus will be emphasized.

Optimize your time and energy for your greatest good.

Near the middle of the month, there is a 10-day purge of energy that may send an Aries through a purifying detox, where things that no longer serve you may just randomly fall from your life, creating space for rebirth and a new way of doing things. Go with it!

And finally, another back-to-back duo of energies caused by the Sun entering Scorpio and a Full Moon in Taurus will finally relieve a dense energy you have been carrying and allow you to move on in any area you are affected. Additionally, the lunar energies from the Full Moon in Taurus will ring all of your intuitive bells and whistles, with an influx of higher understanding.

This article is in partnership with Sensodyne.

Our teeth are connected to so many things - our nutrition, our confidence, and our overall mood. We often take for granted how important healthy teeth are, until issues like tooth sensitivity or gum recession come to remind us. Like most things related to our bodies, prevention is the best medicine. Here are five things you can do immediately to improve your oral hygiene, prevent tooth sensitivity, and avoid dental issues down the road.

Could The 'O Method' Be Just What You Need To Have The Sex You Want?

An author by the name of Alexandra Katehakis once said this about orgasms: “Great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated that orgasm is the closest some people come to a spiritual experience because of the momentary loss of self. Why is this true? Because with spiritual sex, you move beyond orgasm into a connection with yourself, your partner, and the divine — recognizing them all as one.”

If it’s counterintuitive to what you’ve ever thought about orgasms, believe it or not, there are even pastors who have said that climaxing is the closest comprehension of heaven on this side of it: it is an extreme kind of bliss that is indescribable and is best experienced between two people who share a sacrificial kind of love for one another.
