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 Leo, Venus retrograding into Scorpio will send wake-up calls regarding lack, self-perception and self-worth. Both Venus and Scorpio are two planets that are heavily focused inward and on self. Wherever you have been having subconscious feelings of not being enough, or being afraid of losing something, it will come to the surface. Whatever emotional or mental changes you must make in order to end downward cycles surrounding loss, doubt, and self-fulfilling prophecy and must come to an end. The beginning of the month could be dense emotionally.

If you do the work, you will come out on the other end empowered with new insights on how to continue progressing with less fear.

There will be a duo of back-to-back energies of the New Moon in Libra and Mercury entering Scorpio that will affect Leos starting on the 9th and 10th. The New Moon in Libra may have you feeling bolder, more confident, and back to that Leo fire that keeps you motivated and brave. Libra is all about balance, so the fire in your sign will be getting back to its normal intensity. Mercury entering Scorpio will ask you to reassess how you express yourself.

Is there another way for you to assert yourself without accessing ego or fear?

Near the middle of the month, there is a 10-day purge of energy that may show you that your perception and attitude will dictate what manifests in your reality. You may experience a crash course in Positivity 101.

And finally, another back-to-back duo of energies caused by the Sun entering Scorpio and a Full Moon in Taurus will start on the 23rd. A new job or networking opportunity could pop up in your reality, but you will likely have to deal with a high-powered individual or boss along the way. This energy could also mean that you have to become more self-disciplined. The Full Moon could bring back some lessons from the beginning of the month and it is up to you to ride the wave or be pulled under.
