October’s cosmic forecast is relatively chill…until it’s absolutely not. Libra season (through the 22nd) brings us love, beauty and connection: All of the Venusian good feelings. But just when things feel like they’re picking up again, Scorpio season delivers another round of upheaval and unknowns.
The month begins with some relief as Mercury stations direct in Virgo on the 2nd. Conversations that began back at the end of August are revisited, this time with more perspective and clarity. Life-altering Pluto also ends its retrograde on the 8th, and responsible Saturn starts moving forward again on the 23rd.
The full moon in Aries on the 9th is a moment for bold, courageous action. What happens at this lunation might ruffle a few feathers, but luckily Mercury moves back into balanced Libra on the 10th helping us smooth over any inflammatory remarks or hurt feelings.
Things are then relatively calm until the 22nd when Venus meets the sun in the final degree of Libra—a moment of reset and clarity for relationships, creative pursuits and money matters. Then on the 23rd, Scorpio season begins with both the sun and Venus moving into the fixed water sign. Happy birthday to our loyal, moody and protective Scorpios from Meg Ryan to Adam Driver to Bjork.
