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 Libra, Venus retrograding into Scorpio could bless you with something you have been waiting to pay off, or take effect.

Luck is on your side with things finally working itself out, and things developing quickly in your favor. You might start the month off rolling.

Be on the lookout for a new job or career opportunity. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised that you snag a position where you are in a place of supervision or management. This is the perfect time to step up and be a team leader, or vere off and do your own thing creatively. With the sultry energy of Venus, and the sexual vibe of Scorpio, your aura could be releasing seductive vibes or "playboy" charm. Be careful not to move in too fast on a new relationship, or be swayed into having a taste of candy you shouldn't be eating quite yet.

There will be a duo of back-to-back energies of the New Moon in your sign, and Mercury entering Scorpio that will affect Libras starting on the 9th and 10th. The New Moon in your sign might have your focus off. The energies could affect your ability to be on time or just unable to get it together. You might feel easily distracted, lazy, or delusional. You might need an energy kick if you feel lethargic more than usual. Mercury entering Scorpio will have you feeling a little testy. You might feel like you want to do things your way, or feel like something is no longer worth your time. Before you make any irrational or impulsive decisions think about how your actions may affect you down the line.

Try not to make any sudden changes during the second week of the month.

Near the middle of the month, there is a 10-day rush of energy that may send you through an unexpected range of emotions. You may randomly find that you are not satisfied with anything! You may have scattered thoughts, ideas, and desires. Something could occur that causes your whole routine to switch up. If this occurs, do not lose your wits. Stay grounded and in control of your actions.

And finally, another back-to-back duo of energies caused by the Sun entering Scorpio and a Full Moon in Taurus will bring the needed focus back to whatever it was diverted from in the beginning of the month. You may feel like everything is finally making sense and you have escaped the twilight zone. You may re-establish your dedication to something that was let go during the middle of the month. The Full Moon in Taurus will have you feeling like you have your head screwed on straight again and you can clearly process any unresolved energies.
