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 Virgo, Venus retrograding into Scorpio will hit Virgos hard in the love and relationship department. A very intense wave of energy will hit the emotions and heart centers of many of you. Wherever there has been any underlying issues will be brought to the surface. This energy can come in the form of rehashed old arguments, feelings, or cycles. It could be hard to focus on much else in the beginning of the month, as intense Venus energy backtracks into emotional wreck Scorpio. The best way to get through this time is to communicate clearly, feel emotions fully, and don't let anything slide. Be upfront, and clear with your partner about what can absolutely no longer persist. In any case, avoid sliding anything under the rug!

Whatever hardships you face in any area of life must but be dealt with openly. It's time to face the music.

There will be a duo of back-to-back energies of the New Moon in Libra and Mercury entering Scorpio that will affect Virgos starting on the 9th and 10th. The New Moon in Libra will push Virgos to K.O. any last blockages surrounding speaking up for themselves. Libra is all about making things right and getting due justice. If you have been putting up with inconveniences, disrespect, or any kind of abuse, the New Moon just may push you over the edge. Don't be afraid to speak your piece and act on your heart's desires. Mercury entering Scorpio will ask you to "man up," so to speak. Put yourself first wherever you have been "taking the L." It's time for you to get what you feel you deserve. You may even surprise yourself by how sternly you can lay the law.

You set the precedent for how people continue to treat you.

Near the middle of the month, there is a 10-day purge of energy that may send you on a self-love retreat. Even if you can't pack your bags and get away for a couple of weeks, you need to emotionally and mentally check in to a self-care hotel. Commit to 10 days of "doing you."

And finally, another back-to-back duo of energies caused by the Sun entering Scorpio and a Full Moon in Taurus will finally bring a sense of calm surrounding the intensities from the beginning of the month. Something may have come full circle, and the dust will have settled. You would have learned to allocate more "me time," and listen to your emotions and body more. The lunar energies from the Full Moon in Taurus will have you chilling out and being less involved in the dizzying energies of others.

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.
