Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): There may be a lot of growth opportunities and challenges having to do with personal relationships in your life for the first couple of months. However, the main tools you have at your disposal for assistance is your communication skills and your ability to adapt to shifting circumstances. The occupational challenges that are currently present may occupy a lot of your time as well. As the month moves on, you may find that your emotions become stronger, but that the personal challenges have subsided or gone away. However, you may also find that what has replaced it is too much Mars energy, so it would be wise to have some sort of activity to vent all of the extra energy currently in the air.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): You may be especially sensitive to all of the Venus energy currently in the air at the moment, and this may manifest as growth opportunities having to do with creativity and love relationships, so it would be wise to confront them directly, while sticking to your emotional and spiritual core. An excellent distraction may be your ongoing professional development that is occurring. As the month goes on, you may find tension fills the air, especially as it has to do with how you use what you have in context of how you use what you get from others. There may be a lot of tension in the air regarding communication, finances, love, and money, so it would be wise to remain detached and centered as you deal with all of them. You may also note some people from your past come back up during the final two weeks of the month due to the Venus retrograde. They may also come back up in not so pleasant ways, too..
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Other than this being a good month for emotional and spiritual healing, you may find October is an excellent time to use communication skills in your personal relationships to lay the groundwork for future relationships of many kinds. However, in order to achieve this, you may find it is time to end certain emotional cycles within yourself that might be dominating your time and energy at the moment. You may also find this is a great time to embrace new philosophies and concepts to achieve your goals. As the month moves forward, you may find it is a good time to assess your shared assets and resources. You may also find this is a great time to use your critical thinking skills to see what needs addressed in your life in the name of person transformation.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Communication challenges may be the theme of the first two weeks of October, especially when it comes to your personal relationships, so it would be wise to be compassionate with them. However, you may find that some of the decisions you make now regarding money and long term financial planning have larger than expected consequences down the road. You may also find that if you embrace the darker side of your creativity, you achieve much success. However, the professional life may continue with the tension and challenges that have been occurring for a while now. As the month moves forward, you may find the personal relationship challenges dissipate, replaced with many opportunities regarding business, love (especially passion and desire), transformation, and the occult, so it would be wise to do what you can with it because you are in a great position to lay the foundation for the next few months.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Money may be tight, and there may be some challenges regarding your love life right now, but other than that, you may find October starts off smoothly with your personal relationships. You may also find that your emotions are positive and optimistic as well. You may notice your temper is shorter than normal though, and that when you are with friends there is a greater potential for accidents, so it would be wise to practice caution. As October moves on, you may find your challenges in the love life, money, and all things mentioned above amplify in intensity. You may also find that there are certain cycles in your life that are coming to a close, and when you see them, it would be wise to simply let them happen and evolve as you can.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): Even though your emotions may be out of sorts right now, you may find that business, the day to day work, and your overall career is the main area of focus. If they’re not, you may want to turn your attention to them in order to maximize the potential present. You may find windfalls of money and/or love come your way from hidden paths. As October moves forward, you may discover there is even more of an emphasis on business and the workplace due to the opportunities coming your way, so it would be wise to make this life area a top priority to strike while the iron is hot, as they say. This is an especially good time to review investments and how they have manifested into physical reality, if they have at all. This is also two weeks during which you may find passion and fulfillment of desire occurs as well.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Happy birthday Libras! This is your month to do all the things and treat yourself to the pleasures of life. The month starts off with a lot of positive emphasis on your personal relationships. A lot of this may occur through communication, and it could range from showing gratitude to others, to receiving gratitude because of your birthday. While the workplace and career may still be going through its period of transformation, you may find that with some minor adjustments you can unlock hidden potential. As October progresses, you may find your emotions get more and more challenged with a shorter temper in particular, and that the job is requiring more of your time and attention, especially when it comes to details, so it would be wise to adjust when appropriate.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Unexpected blessings may come their way to you through hidden or unknown channels as October begins, so it would be wise to stay sharp. These blessings may be financial or related to love, and will arrive either through business, death, or occult channels. While the work place is transforming like it is for so many others, you may find that what is evolving is natural and positive overall. In a lot of ways this may be a fantastic month if you listen to your psychic side. When October unfolds, you may find that the final two weeks bring a lot more of the same, but in higher doses and more intense ways. What you may notice though, is that the more you put in, the more you may get out of it, so it would be wise to make your business your top priority. If this doesn’t unfold through business channels, it may unfold through your love life, or from the death of someone significant close to you.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Emotional cycles may be coming to a close right now, especially when it comes to siblings or people that were or are close to you, so it would be wise to remember grace, dignity, and justice as you navigate them. One of the tools you have at your disposal to help with this is surprisingly your communication skills. You may also find you have a lot of extra energy at your disposal, so it would be wise to have an outlet in mind as you begin the month. When the Sun moves into Scorpio, you may find it is time to make a lot of small adjustments to achieve goals in the professional and business life. You may also find that due to a death in the family you have to make minor changes as well. Or it could be it is time to make time for a new, passionate love affair. However this manifests, the main theme for the last two weeks may be adaptability, but rather than a major adaptation, a lot of small ones.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Communication challenges may be the theme of the first couple of weeks of the month, especially when it comes to personal relationships, so it would be wise to play things cautious. Money may be flowing easily to you at the moment, and your love life may be extra spicy as well, so it would be wise to focus on your blessings and enjoy what comes your way. This is also an excellent time to make the necessary adjustments that are required to reach your lifelong, broad goals. For the last two weeks of the month you may find your temper is a little shorter, and that if you’re not careful, you may be prone to more accidents than normal, so remember to breathe deep and proceed with caution.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Money may be tight right now, and your intimate relationships may be challenged, but in general you may find now is a great time to talk to people and make the desired connections to move you forward in life. Watch the temper though, as you may find it is a little shorter than normal, making you more accident prone. As October progress though, you may find all things related to your money and love life are becoming more challenged overall, requiring more of your attention, so it would be wise to allocate your energy accordingly. You may also find the Venus retrograde that is occurring is bringing with it people and situations from your path that are calling for your attention again in the name of emotional and spiritual healing. Fortunately your emotions are extra strong as well, giving you the energy needed to address these things.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Emotional and spiritual healing may be the central theme for October, so it would be wise to heal yourself, as the saying goes. You may also find the professional life is rolling along quite smoothly, and that there is a lot of foundational work being laid when it comes to love, money, the occult, and the fulfillment of desire, so it would be wise to practice self compassion when it comes to healing, while at the same time putting a lot of energy into love, money, and everything just mentioned. Your emotions may be currently agitated, but that will pass quickly. As October evolves, you may find more and more of your time and energy may be dedicated to your business, shared resources, and love life in general. This is going to continue through the first part of November as well, so adjust your planning accordingly.
