Aries

Taurus

20 April – 20 May

What’s your relationship with yourself like, Taurus? Is your self-talk supportive and uplifting? Or, do you ruminate over your failings, nit-picking at every tiny flaw? Venus gently reminds you about the law of attraction and that your thoughts manifest your reality. Be mindful of where you direct your attention. Not only that but being your own best friend makes life a lot easier than being your own worst critic. Implement positive affirmations, and you’ll go far in October. The Sun’s meet-up with fiery Mars causes you to butt heads with a workmate or employer. Watch your words, Aries. You’ll be tempted to give this person a piece of your mind, but regret will likely step in once the initial satisfaction wears off. Having your say may not be worth the awkwardness that’s sure to follow.

New financial ventures prove profitable, particularly if you’ve done your groundwork during Mercury’s backpacks spin. Maidens questioning their self-worth come up with answers. Remember to be gentle with yourself, Virgo. Ditch the self-criticism you’re famous for because it’s far from helpful now. Assess yourself, your decisions and your actions with compassion, and you’ll progress much further. Apply the same attitude when judging others, and you’ll double your happiness quota for the month. Healthwise, thanks to Jupiter, you’re sparkling in October.

Scorpio

Scorpio

23 October – 21 November

October’s new Moon calms your vibe as you realise that pushing yourself to the brink just isn’t on anymore. Although you’re not running yourself physically ragged, you’re tossing thoughts relentlessly around inside your head. And all that mental ruminating isn’t good for you, Scorpio. Allow La Luna to halt overthinking and prioritise your peace of mind. Still, positive thinking isn’t a switch you can turn on and off, but you can learn to master your mind. Discover a mental discipline that works for you. Be prepared to stray off the usual path to try alternative methods. Mathematics, meditation, reading and crossword puzzles may not be your jam, but these things strengthen your focus. Life and love look up when the Sun pays a visit to your sign on October 23rd. For your birthday, a light-hearted activity minus drama is guaranteed to brighten your mood

Venus sashays into your sign on October 7th, inviting more love into your life. Amore comes in all shapes and sizes, but this month, Venus targets self-love. Are you prioritising yourself, or has putting everyone else first become your new normal? It’s time to stop sacrificing and start honouring your heart’s desires. Self-care isn’t selfish; it’s sensible survival. That goes double for parent Archers. Be like the adult on a plane that secures their own oxygen mask before assisting their child. It just makes sense, so ditch the guilt, Sagittarius. Money-wise, Venus steps in, in the form of a bonus, lucrative job offer or a generous helping hand.

Capricorn

Capricorn

22 December – 19 January

Let’s face it; you’ve faced some heavy challenges. Some you’ve conquered, while others left you feeling less than fabulous. But now, you can breathe a sigh of relief as Pluto shifts gears in your sign on October 7th. As the power planet abandons it’s retrograde and begins to pick up speed, your mood slowly lifts. It’s time to attend to overdue tasks, bills and paperwork that are hanging over your head. As for relationships, invest in neglected connections that remain close to your heart. Spend quality time with people that matter. On the flip side, anyone sapping your energy needs to go. Watch out for one frenemy that smiles sweetly in your face while ruthlessly digging the knife in your back! Work matters flow beautifully thanks to Mercury’s direct motion in your career zone. But by October 21st, La Luna focuses on home and family. You’re the glue that holds everyone together, Capricorn. Remember that.

Aquarius

Aquarius

20 January – 18 February

Thanks to Saturn and Jupiter flowing forward in your sign, a halted project or task finally gets the green light. Although the delay was worrying, October brings renewed optimism. The same can be said for emotionally stuck Aquarians. If life’s felt more like wading through mud than skipping through green meadows, a lighter and brighter mood washes over you by mid-month. One word of advice; Saturn demands that you face your duties head-on, so running away from responsibility is a no-no. What scares you most? That’s the exact thing you need to throw yourself into. So, step up and embrace your fears, Aquarius! On October 23rd, the Sun lights up a new direction. Shifting to the countryside, a brand-new career path, or a relationship refresh are all on the cards. Regardless of the outcome, you’re in the driver’s seat, and that’s what counts.

Pisces

Pisces

19 February – 20 March

October’s full Moon highlights your self-worth. When it comes to naming your asking price, be fair but firm. Don’t sell yourself, your skills or your talents short, Pisces. Fish in the process of negotiating a contract should stick to their guns. Your time and expertise deserve to be appropriately remunerated. This month, run a fine-tooth comb through your budget. Are your incomings and outgoings balanced, or are you tipping into the red? Don’t be hard on yourself for overspending – a girl’s got to splurge every now and again! Allow La Luna to bring back sensible spending this month. Mercury helps you maintain relationship boundaries by communicating your expectations with crystal clear clarity. Those closest to you admire you for walking your talk. It’s your brutal honestly that gains you respect.
