October Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Anne of Green Gables
October is my favorite month of the year! Not only because it’s my birthday month—which I will be celebrating in Paris (look for my Instagram and Facebook postings on my adventures in the City of Light), but also because it is when nature’s fall colors are the most vibrant. Spring’s fragrant bouquet is always sweet, but it is fall’s acorns, pumpkins, frosty mornings and crisp fallen leaves that make my soul sing.
October is also the time when we begin to surrender into the darkness, the quieter, more interior landscapes of our being. A prelude to Halloween—All Hollow’s Eve--at the end the month. Halloween is the beginning of the Spiritual New Year. A time when the veil between worlds is the most transparent. A time to give a timely death to what no longer serves, and begin to set intentions for what you want to manifest in the New Year.
Your October Horoscope:
Aries: There’s cosmic intensity with a planetary cluster in your House of Death, Rebirth and Transformation. So, if you’re experiencing intense feelings, don’t shrug them off; instead embrace the wisdom they offer. This may be a time when you’re considering very deep things—like your mortality, your relationship with the Universe, and what the heck you’re doing here. Intense! At the same time, it’s important to remember: #LifesAMysteryDontTakeItTooSeriously
Taurus: It’s all about balance this month, Taurus. You have the Full Moon in your sign on October 24th, illuminating your sphere of personal power, inspiring you to be on your “A” game. At the same time the Venus retrograde in your opposite sign, has you slowing down and considering what’s really important. Your best investments now, whether in time, energy or money, are the ones that speak to your heart. Sound frivolous? Au Contraire! #MyHeartGuidesTheWay
Gemini: Are you listening? October’s Full Moon illuminates your House of the Unconscious, Dreams and Imaginations. Lady Luna is whispering sweet nothings into your ear about what is possible. Key now is finding a balance between your creative desires, and your wellbeing. You’re exploring a new rhythm, one that is filled with strength, while being softer and gentler. You’ve learned that you don’t have to sacrifice your wellbeing to be big in the world. #KillingMeSoftlyWithHisSong
Cancer: If I were to describe your stars in a song, it would be: “Slow down, you move too fast; you got to make the morning last. Just kicking down the cobblestones, looking for fun and feeling groovy.” My musical message being: October is about reevaluating how you spend your time, especially in regard to what brings you happiness. Joy is such an underrated, yet valuable commodity. So is downtime. You deserve more of both. This month’s is all about: #FeelingGroovy
Leo: Your sphere of communication is highlighted this month. As they say: Words have power, and this especially so for you now. This may be a time when you’re feeling feisty, wanting to get some things “off your chest”, as some old grievances resurface. But think carefully before you speak. Make sure that your words have the potential to make things better and are not just a projection of your unrest. Otherwise, you’re just deepening: #OldWounds
Virgo: You, oh-so-wholistic-health-minded-one, are being cosmically prompted to eat your veggies, juice your juice, and downward your dog—into creating a more balanced life. Did I say: prompted? A better word is--inspired! This is familiar ground, but now it’s time to commit. A part of the process may be a vacation, some down-time to re-charge your batteries. Somewhere new and unfamiliar, to get your juices flowing, is just what the doctor ordered. #Juicy
Libra: With Venus, your ruling planet, retrograde in your house of money, this is a time to pull-back and consider how you spend and invest your money. You’ve had the benevolent forces of Jupiter working in your favor since last fall-- hopefully bringing a new sense of prosperity your way--but it will be moving on next month. October offers the opportunity to get ahead of the game and look at your money management. Or in other words: #EmbraceABudget
Scorpio: There’s much happening for you this month, planetary speaking, so expect moments of exhilaration, and also some moments of overwhelm. Growth can be a bitch, but it’s your lovely bitch now, as you are being inspired to go the edge of your comfort zones. Pay attention to situations and opportunities that bring value to your life. This will be especially true on the Full Moon on October 24th. If you’re having trouble discerning what’s real: #IfItsNotAHellYesItsAHellNo
Sagittarius: Your stars this month bring illumination to what lies beneath the surface, the subterranean depths of your psyche. This is often uncharted, yet fertile territory. The key lies in shifting your perspective from an outer-based reality, to one that is more inner-focused. If you embrace the idea that your inner-world shapes the reality you experience, then you’re on the right tract. This is the mystic’s journey: To be present and learn from the great Mystery. #SoulMiner
Capricorn: With the New Moon illuminating your career sector, October is a time to set new parameters around what you do in the world. As you’re discerning possibilities, and opportunities, it’s important to know that you don’t need to do anything you don’t want to. This ain’t your first rodeo, and you need to trust that you know what you’re doing—even if the details aren’t completely in place. Your guiding light is your inspiration. Follow it, without hesitation. #Trust
Aquarius: Consider yourself fully activated! With “make-it-happen” Mars in your sign, your cosmic engines are running on high, propelling you forward with great momentum. This month is filled with opportunity, and also potential conflicts and drama. So as much as you want to Go, Go, Go! you need to pace yourself. Embrace conflicts as potential learning ground to deepen your resolve and stay true to yourself. Integrity is key. Grab on and: #MakeItSo
Pisces: Your theme this month is: learning experiences. Whether through books, in classes and workshops, or the classroom of life, you’re looking to acquire new knowledge and skills. Learning may come in different, and even unexpected ways—so be open. If in the process insecurities arise about your ability to learn, then this is an opportunity to lay those doubts to rest. Your desire for wisdom, and your stars influence, far out-weight any shortcomings (real or imagined). #AnEducation
