Aries (21 March – 19 April)

October begins with Pluto implementing change in your career zone. Being as bold as you are, you turn the head of a VIP with clout. Your ambition brings you a valued job reward; be it a pay raise, time off, or a trip with all the bells and whistles. When faced with a dispute, prove to the bullies that a bit of “shaking” can’t break you. Allow challenges to educate you and make it clear to your co-workers how strong you really are. The full moon on October 14 creates some emotional highs and lows, but you’re quick to get back on track. You have a tendency to dive headfirst into risk when there is a promise of reward. But, make sure to dot all your i’s and cross your t’s when it comes to finances. Save up some money for the passionate encounter you come across mid-month. You two might end up escaping on a spontaneous trip.

Taurus (20 April – 20 May)

Power through the first week of October when the cosmos grants you an energy boost. The self-care you’ve been implementing works wonders, thanks to Mars lighting up your wellbeing zone. You may have trouble sleeping, though. Try including some homeopathic melatonin in your bedtime wind down and don’t allow stressful thoughts to keep you up at night. Relax in a serene environment, surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavours. On October 9, charming Venus glows in your relationship zone. Expect a special someone to surprise you with a loving and thoughtful gesture, making you realise how much you are appreciated. By month’s end, the new moon conjures up a misunderstanding that causes you and your business partner, work associate or boss, to fall out. Sooner or later, you’ll reap the rewards for the work you’ve put in. You’re a powerful player, after all.

Gemini (21 May – 20 June)

A secret involving your sweetheart could be disclosed. Adopt a rational approach and handle the situation like the Queen that you are. Just when you thought you were getting off October’s roller-coaster, you’ll find yourself on another thrilling ride. Hold on tight! The full moon highlights a friendship that’s already on shaky ground, leaving you feeling disappointed. Yet, someone who you share a strong compatibility with comes along by month’s end. Don’t forget to show your gratitude towards your new friend by being true to your word. On October 31, Mercury reverses through your health zone. You’ve been so busy lately that you’ve neglected a vital aspect of your wellbeing. Nourish your cells with a healthy diet and consider engaging a personal trainer if you need a little push towards becoming your best self.

Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

October clears the air, overcoming a persistent problem. A clash between Mars and mega asteroid Chiron causes an argument with a flatmate or relative to erupt. Despite being uncomfortable, it sheds light on an issue that should have been resolved ages ago. A loose end that has been weighing heavily on your shoulders can be tied up now. October’s full moon presents a stimulating work opportunity. Hard work pays off. Make the most out of a lucky break you manage to score by month’s end and keep your eyes on the prize. Meanwhile, the new moon spotlights your love life. Single? A new love enters your life. Allow yourself to feel all the feels. Taken? A long-standing heartache finally comes to an end. A radical approach to a love puzzle that’s had you stumped is the answer to your prayers.

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

If an enigmatic health niggle is lingering, consider getting a second opinion and follow up on your instincts. Expect to have a much better understanding of the issue by month’s end. Venus slides into your home zone, offering a helping hand or precious advice from a sister, female cousin or your mother. You value reciprocity a lot, so you’ll appreciate their supportive guidance. It makes you realise that the right people show up for you when you need them most. As you gain positive momentum, you decide to get your life in order. The full moon encourages you to tie up loose ends to do with a foreign connection. Others finalise travel plans, so make sure your passport is up to date. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen and you’re good to go. This month, you’re back to being the confident Leo who loves celebrating themselves.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

You’re logical, practical and systematic in your approach to life. But, you’ve been looking for an answer. How can you make more money, keep it and grow it? October begins with Mars booming in your cash zone. Quick tip; avoid arguments over money – they’ll only land you in hot water. By mid-month, Venus transforms your love life. If you’re single, expect the person you’ve been crushing on to send you a love letter via text. Don’t think twice about creating an online dating account. Put yourself out there and get to know people. If you’re taken, your sweetheart plans a romantic dinner at your favourite restaurant. After all, good food equals a good mood! The night will open up a meaningful conversation. The full moon on October 14 asks you to improve something about yourself. What will it be?

Libra (23 September – 22 October)

What a wonderful time to be alive! Venus shines in your sign, collaborating with Pluto to bring family together. It feels like a great time to make changes around the house. Also, getting your kids involved in their fair share of the chores is a win-win plan. Other zodiac signs envy your charisma this month. Mars explodes into your sign for the first time in two years. Thanks to that, your sex appeal is sure not to go unnoticed. It’ll make it very hard for your partner or potential lovers to resist you. The Sun knows how much you care about creating equilibrium in all areas of life. Mid-month, Jupiter acts as your guardian angel, protecting you from the green-eyed monster. Don’t make Jupiter’s job more difficult by posting too many proud moments on social media.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

Lately, it’s felt like you and a sibling speak different languages. But, as October wraps up, communication flows more smoothly, making it easier for you to get your point across. You radiate such positive energy in October that others want to be near you, just to bask in your light. The full moon highlights your health sector. A detox might be a good starting point. Also, did you know that infrared saunas have amazing benefits to cellular repair? Don’t be afraid to give it a shot. You’ll soon realise that discovering new avenues of wellness is part of your personal journey. By the end of the month, the new moon brings a fresh approach to an old and troublesome problem. Be brave enough to take the first step towards solving it. As you derive your strength from the psychic, emotional realm, trust your gut feelings on this one.

Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

Trouble in paradise? Venus dances with Pluto, so you might feel a bit confused about your relationship. Don’t make a fuss out of it – your partner’s feelings don’t have anything to do with the problem that has popped up. Use your time to create something beautiful, instead. October’s full moon encourages you to throw yourself into a creative project. Are you musically gifted? Would you like to try out for an amateur theatre production? Or do you wish to write a song? One thing’s for sure – you’re always on a quest for knowledge. Focus on your talents. The moment you grow to master them is when life will give you your golden ticket. By the end of October, the Sun presents an answer through your subconscious. Pay attention to your dreams, the signs you are receiving are real.

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

Pluto lights up that spark inside of you, as you are encouraged to put yourself out there a bit more than usual. Create an inspirational mantra for yourself that motivates you every day. It should convey that you’ve done the inner work and now it’s time to claim your prize. Show your boss what you’re made of when you put forward a plan that is nothing short of genius. If it’s met with resistance, stand up for yourself. Your girl tribe has your back. Thanks to Venus, you’ll be surprised by how sweet your friendships are. Haven’t you missed doing girly and frivolous activities with your female friends? Social connections are equally as important as professional achievements.

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

Aren’t you tired of empty promises? As Jupiter dances with Uranus, you’re willing to walk away from toxic people. You may surprise yourself by saying “thank God it’s over!” about a situation you couldn’t previously find the strength to let go of. You’re well known for aspiring to change the world through radical social progress. The good news is, it’s your time to shine! By the end of October, Mars faces off with Saturn. It’s your turn to accept a leadership role, even if it terrifies you. Go on and do your thing – it’s time to be brave. Delay signing an important document or contract until Mercury shifts gears next month. Just to be sure.

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

Is the fight with your bestie or lover really worth the angst? Flirting can easily be mistaken for infidelity. Be careful not to let the green-eyed monster get out of control. As Mars heats up your zone of intimacy, sexual tension builds to an all-time high. Make sure the object of your passion is unattached. If not, find another option. Otherwise, you may find yourself stuck in a hot mess that’s not worth ruining your reputation over. This month’s full moon presents you with an exciting life path choice, so you’d better get clear about your purpose. Find that thing that rocks your world. Remember your latest career ambition? It’s about to come to fruition. Be ready to welcome it with arms wide open.
