Cosmic Messages : October, I share with authenticity and grace.
The Seasons & Cycles of October By CosmoMuse
Libra Season (ends October 22nd): Welcome to October, a month of diving deeper into our communing and sharing needs. As we reflect nature and the changes taking place, it’s a time of giving back and allowing more of our energy to go within as well as toward others—just as nature is starting to give back to the soils and to the earth’s root systems of connectivity. Summer and Spring were filled with self-growth and maturing our personal blossoming. It was a time when we fed off of the nutrients we created last autumn and winter. Now as Libra Season unfolds around us, we’ve again switched to autumn and winter’s yin half of the year where we create our soils of fertility. Starting at Autumn Equinox, equal day and night prevailed but we start to move toward more and more darkness as we enter October. We dive under the surface where collective growth happens in richly dark and fertile places. This month will challenge us to navigate in dusky terrain where the mysteries of life and regeneration take place.
Libra Season is the initiator of this return toward our inner lives and toward others. Half of us is still above ground and enjoying the fullness of our peak ripening. The other half of us is tiptoeing toward other and the dark underworld. It’s a time when we start recognizing how everyone else has matured and grown over the yang (spring and summer) half of the year. Because we still have half of ourselves focused on self, we can make very quick tweaks and adjustments in order to fall in alignment with those who’ve done similar maturing and growing. This is a time of partnering and recognizing how our harmonics play with those of others, hence where to place our trust in others. Just as leaves fall and decompose into the earth, we are in the process of falling and choosing who we want to decompose with, and where. Sunsets and the airy process of falling represent this Libra phase. It feels equally like an aesthetic dance and an unnerving balance act the same time. Equality and elegance feel important as we sit on the cusp of light and dark. We work to find resolution to things we see as out of balance.
Scorpio Season (starts October 23rd): In the early morning hours of October 23rd, we enter into the Season of Scorpio and mid-autumn. This is a time when we are no longer partially above ground. We are in the dark and in the beginning phases of decomposing. This sharing of our resources with others uproots a lot of psychological baggage. As we get more intimate and truly reveal what resources we hold, we can find ourselves trying to control or making strategic maneuvers to hold the power over the pooling of resources that are now being revealed. Alchemy is taking place and it’s a season to call on our courage to navigate in mystery. It’s those who understand that 1+1 does not equal 2, when dealing with a pooling of assets, that come out swimmingly during this season. It’s a time to understand why you may collect debt or wealth in your life, why you enjoy or dislike sex, why you attract controlling scenarios or try to control others. The true power of this season comes when you realize that empowerment can be found through choosing to decompose with others who are also looking for empowerment. If we choose others to ‘get into bed’ with who are power hungry, likely they will take your power from you as you reveal yourself. If you are the power hungry one, your holding of other’s power only surrounds you with weakened others. It’s a very eeire and mysterious place and season to navigate. Many of us are unaware of our patterns in this realm, but this is the time, when the Sun is shining it’s light on this process of life, that we can best see and recognize how we function in our mysterious sharing realm.
October Astrological Ritual:
Libra Season is its own kind of spring: branches are heavy with ripened berries, and fall foliage colors brighten our landscapes. Take time this season to celebrate your own transformations as you cultivate more beauty, elegance, grace, and harmony in your life. Each day, choose one of these balancing rituals to help you cultivate loving kindness relationships with yourself, your loved ones, and the world around you.
Elegance & Grace
I love the concept used by mathematicians and physicists “an elegant solution.” The very simplified explanation of this phrase is that a true and good solution to a question will be simple and true--it will be elegant, without frills or a convoluted explanation.
Each morning, approach a problem you’ve been struggling with. Ask yourself if you’ve been complicating things by over-thinking, over-doing, or making assumptions based on old beliefs. Write down the problem and breathe. Give the problem space. Give your old solutions a brief thank you and send them on their way. As you empty your mind of complications (worrying about your appearance to others, assuming someone will be angry, thinking someone will behave like someone else, afraid you’re not good enough), allow for new pathways to simplify your approach. Take each problem by its own merits; breathe; and remember you only have to take the next step.
Elegance and grace are slow. Embrace a slower, more patient pace in the world.
Aries || Aries Rising
Poetic Love, Powerful Self-Actualization & Deep Empowerment. October starts you out in a very interesting season, one that will test how you find your equilibrium. Libra is your polar opposite sign so with the Sun here, all things polarity will crop up. Relationships, opponents, finding balance, and allowing yourself to place deeper trust in others. Where Libra falls in our charts shows where we attract a strong need to cultivate fairness, elegance, and reason. When out of balance it can attract conflict and a need to better learn diplomacy. For you, this falls in the realm of relationships, partnerships, the law, and anyone that you hire as an advocate – an attorney, real estate agent, etc.
Until the 23rd, with the Sun in Libra and your 7th house, a revitalizing of these issues will begin to bubble with new stirrings and fresh paths opening up to you. This sign and your 7th house both show your relational style which is grounded in fairness and elegance. Tap into ingeniously simple solutions with the airy and other-focused resonance swirling around you.
A mirroring of nature during this season has you embracing the light with the dark and feeling of being full and ready to outpour more of your energy toward your nearest and dearest. Because each season naturally aligns with its rightful house in your chart, your assignments during each sign’s reign are much simpler than those of other signs. Where your challenge will always lie is in this, your polar sign and season. It’s the most difficult one for you to see in yourself thus you have to see it through ‘other’ first. Observe how the people you chose to trust are very focused on fairness and simple elegance. Reflect on that this may be how you are seeing it because it’s how you are relating. You are a very assertive sign but you possess much reason and beautiful harmonics when you can switch into a relating mode. Libra’s ability to think of others and of their agendas and needs shows up in who you attract because of your relational style. This is the season to really challenge that about yourself. Give, compromise, be gracious and patient, and watch how this reorients you toward having more elegant and well-harmonized relations in your life.
Our mid-autumn season of Scorpio arrives on the 23rd and with it, a stubborn, sexy, and magnetic phase of life. Your 8th house of shared resources, power, control, intimacy, and psychology are ruled by this sign. As the Sun shines its recently chilled light in this part of your life, you can find new courage and vitality to daringly enter your darker recesses. Explore how you control and feel controlled as well as how you might be able to reorient that to target empowerment rather than attracting or using any abuses of power. Shared resources may become a focus as you think about your taxes, stocks, credit cards, and other areas that bring debt and wealth. It’s a great time to start digging, researching, and forming long-term strategic plans around how to veer toward growing your assets. Intimacy and sex are also areas that could vie for your attention. You may feel more magnetic and experience powerful urges from deep within, finding yourself in deep and vulnerable entanglements. If this brings up new psychological issue or insights, a professional psychologist may be a great resource to help you understand and navigate the mysteries being uprooted inside of you.
Since 2008 Pluto, the planet that rules Scorpio and your 8th house, has been in Capricorn bringing greater power and transformation in your career, but since April 20th he’s been in a sleepy retrograde mode pushing you to look even further under the surface than this planet of the underworld already is. You may have needed to review and revise your strategies in how your wealth and entanglements connect to your career and reputation. Pluto is moving forward again since the last few days of October. A pick-up in pace may be felt in how these things work with each other in your life and the insights gained from this review process will help you rework and rebuild with better strategy.
October 4th: Venus and Mars Conjunct. Magic is in the air when these two mates meet up. Mars contains passion and assertion while Venus brings tenderness and pleasure. In the sign of Virgo and your 6th house, you can find amazing synergy in a work project that comes across your path as well as in your daily rhythm and all things wellness.
October 5th: The Aries Full Moon illumination will help you blossom, secure in what your most authentic passions and desires are. With the Sun in your opposite sign of Libra, you get a little help around how to balance your needs against the needs of others, enabling you to push your deepest desires up and into reality. What did you wish for as early spring rolled in? What aspects of your authenticity are you feeling a need to better push into your life? What personal desires are starting to feel valid and ready to be made manifest? There may be some tension from a powerful authority in your life that challenges you to face deep seated fears, that tears a hole and break you down. But from the crack it creates, you will ultimately be able to see new beauty forming in its place. Information opposed to your authenticity could push you to encompass more perspective at your core, changing and challenging the way you think. This is a tough Full Moon to have as your personal lunation of the year, but it’s one that will dynamically transform you if you dive into it.
October 10th: Jupiter enters Scorpio. Jupiter moves signs about every 13 months, expanding all that he touches. In Libra, Jupiter gave us a year of expanding our perspectives around equality and deep trust in partners. In a broad sense it brought a grand surge of realization around the views of equality and fairness around the world. Now, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, we’ll be diving into the psychology of those who hold power, wealth, and control in our world. Personally, it can help you to find great new opportunities that may push your boundaries around areas of shared resources. Jupiter can be a bit hoarding. He may goad you to pull the trigger with financial entanglements without totally understanding the details of what you’ve gotten yourself into. It’s a year to be very careful around due diligence. Force yourself to research the contexts of what you pool your values with. Once you feel you have solid intel and a grounded understanding of life broadening and powerful opportunities being presented, then make decisions around any sharing of finances—including borrowing and lending. You can just as easily rack up great debt as you can great wealth with Jupiter in Scorpio until next November.
October 14th: Venus enters Libra. Beauty and elegance will grace your personal relationships with an extra dose of affection and aesthetic appreciation for the rest of October. Plan pleasurable experiences with your loved ones. Long and sensual dinners, deep conversation, and poetic acts of trust are the things that will show you just how valuable you and your relationships are. More tangible value is available to you now through partners and areas of design or justice.
October 17th: Mercury enters Scorpio. As planet of the mind enters the 8th house of your chart, your thoughts will feel a bit more focused and consumed with finding information and ideas around how you share your values as well as on the psychology of power and control. Try to research more about the beauty of empowerment over being more powerful than others. Great ideas could surface around how to decrease debt or grow more wealth. Your mind will be sharp and strategic now through to the end of October.
October 19th: Libra New Moon. This is your chance to form fresh intentions and plant new seeds around the kinds of relationships you want to cultivate in your life over the next year, and how you can find more elegance and fairness in your life. Some powerfully expansive vibes will surround any new paths that you decide to venture down through these intentions. They may push your boundaries to the extreme, forcing you to face deep seated psychological blocks head on. As you push through these blocks great power could envelop your bonds. Your mind will be acute and on your side, helping you to find any information and connections needed to harmonize beautifully with the people you chose to deeply trust this year. This New Moon is loaded with a landmine and you may also find that some freedom needs could push you to confront erratic patterns in you’ve developed in your relationships. On the plus side you can find trusted counsel from a wise older person in your life. Look for them if you feel pressures boiling your nearest relations over the next year. They are there, but you need to look and ask for their help.
October 22nd: Mars enters Libra. Just as our Sun and season move on to Scorpio, Mars keeps Libra’s realm ignited. This warrior planet is your ruler so you will keep a strong connection to issues of relationships, harmonizing, and beauty in your life through to the end of the month. Mars helps us to clear away old baggage in order to identify new paths and new passions. Similar to the New Moon, you will start to feel fresh clearing and rising passions for the areas of poetic love and assertively creating balance and justice in your life. If a bit of a fight is needed to find balance and fairness, Mars will ignite that battle for you.
October 26th: Sun conjunct Jupiter. A very lucky day arrives as our solar vitality and the planet of luck meet up for their once a year meeting—this year in Scorpio. Things ignited on this day have the potential to grow and flourish with a grand mass of power and good fortune throughout the year for you.
Taurus || Taurus Rising
Lifestyle Elegance, Assertive Inspiration & Powerful Relationships. Your lifestyle and how you go about your daily rhythms and processes is getting a light shone on it with the Sun in Libra until October 22nd. This sign and season rule your 6th house of lifestyle and personal culture. This is a house that reveals how you need to feel productive, useful, and needed. Libra is about harmony, elegance, design, and fairness. You may find that your days feel more in-tune with who you are when you are allowed an elegant, peaceful, and restful pace. Working in partnerships and doing things with others throughout your day may feel stimulating and is something that you are capable of giving yourself to and sacrificing yourself in. The same goes for all things design or justice related. You may attract others who are very productive and refined as well as be very refined and productive in the realms of design and equality.
As we turn toward shorter days, notice new stirrings and new paths opening to you to create a daily rhythm that’s more elegant and balanced. The Sun’s job is to revitalize and it’s been 11 months since this part of you chart has had vital energy shining on it. Because you seek perfection in your balancing ways, try to be softer and airier toward partners and your relationships. Try to allow a little more dance into your aesthetic sensibilities. Some imperfection in the realm of trusting others and balancing your life is to be expected and makes things all the more authentic. Relating with people is not an area that is easily refined but your social graces are probably a step above most.
As we storm into the end of October, the 23rd pushes us into mid-autumn and the solar season of powerful Scorpio. For you this will ignite revitalized energy in the realm of relationships and balance in your life. Scorpio is your polar opposite sign and the hardest one to see about yourself. As a Taurus, you are very assertive about your personal value and personal resources. Scorpio is also about value and resources except this sign focuses on a sharing of values. It contains a very mysterious and powerful energy that demands vulnerability through revealing the whole of yourself. You may attract others to you with this energy but it’s just a reflection that you are seeing through them into the way you cultivate relationships. You may have hidden urges to control and hold power over your partners or attract others who do this to you. The balance that needs to be found is empowering each other rather than feeling fear from past trauma that triggers you to either give yours away or take it from. Use these last days of October to better understand what it means to give yourself completely to another who is also willing to give themselves completely in return. Notice that the more you are able to find reciprocal intimacy with another, the greater empowerment encompasses both of you.
The planetary ruler of Scorpio and your relationships, Pluto, has been in a retrograde, or review, process since April 20th. He just returned to direct motion in the last few days of October. His current station has been influencing your partnerships (or your partners) to push into greater authority in their lives through higher education, broadening their horizons through things foreign, or through tackling grand opportunities outside of their wheelhouse. Things could have been a bit weird since April as a review was needed but the feedback and insights you gained through this sticky process will help you to now move forward with new strategy that will be more powerful and healthier for you both.
October 4th: Venus conjunct Mars. These two planets make dynamic magic when they meet up. Your personal ruler, Venus, loves to love and Mars loves to create passion. There’s a bit of reserved sophistication with this meeting taking place in sophisticated Virgo. In the part of the you chart that places you in the creative spotlight, you are sure to attract attention from the crowd for your assertive and easy way with organization and nuance.
October 5th: Aries Full Moon. This is Full Moon that could really push you to own your compassionate and artistic side. You can be an assertive and forceful composer and this lunation wants you to show this more openly. You have the power to initiate and be the spark that ignites things spiritual and artistic in nature. This year’s Aries Full Moon may arrive with tensions from powerful situations that will push your boundaries and life beliefs. Things foreign, around higher education, or that hold authority in your life could bring up psychological fears and baggage that needs to be faced. The stress of this could crack areas of your foundation but only areas that are already due for upgrades and rebuilding. It’s never an easy process to face your demons but beauty grows back ten-fold where you allow the old parts of your life to die. Information from work and partners could also push you to be more encompassing in your perspectives of what’s realistic and what’s fantasy. Allow this moon to transform how you navigate healing and inspiration in your life.
October 10th: Jupiter enters Scorpio. Jupiter moves signs about every 13 months, expanding all that he touches. In Libra, Jupiter gave us a year of expanding our perspectives around equality and deep trust in partners. In a broad sense it brought a grand surge of realization around the views of equality and fairness around the world. Now, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, we’ll be diving into the psychology of those who hold power, wealth, and control in our world. For you personally, this planet will move into the relationship part of your chart. You may attract others who have expansively powerful opportunities surrounding them this year. Any partnerships and relationships you enter or are already in could bring great expansion and powerful new worlds to your doorstep.
October 14th: Venus enters Libra. More ease, value, pleasure, and beauty could surround your work projects, your daily rhythms, and your processes through to the end of October. Partnerships could feel productive and purposeful in your life.
October 17th: Mercury enters Scorpio. The last half of October may be filled with great curiosity and heightened connection to partnerships in your life. More communication and diving into the psychology of your connection may be necessary to really transform and grow deeper intimacy together.
October 19th: Libra New Moon. This is your chance during the year to form new intentions and seeds around how you want to cultivate your daily life, wellness, and processes. Libra would love for you to fill them with more ease and beauty. Aspects to this Moon may push you to expand the depth of your connection to your lifestyle in order to find greater power and opportunity in your work. A lot of information will be available to you this year as you seek to expand and deepen your usefulness and purpose in life. One bolt of erratic energy could throw you for a loop this year due to secrets or mystical experiences that unexpectedly pop out at you.
October 22nd: Mars enters Libra. Earlier in October, Mars in Virgo was giving you revived energy and clearing new paths for you in the creative realm of your chart. Now in Libra, he will do the same but around your work, wellness, and lifestyle. Use Mar’s assertive energies to identify what you are truly passionate about in your work and what needs to be shed.
October 26th: Sun conjunct Jupiter. A fortunate day that happens once a year, this meet-up between our solar vitality and the planet of expansion will take place in your partnership sector this year. Things ignited now will have much positive and fortuitous energy around them. Attention, attraction, and opportunity brings greatness to all things empowering and partnering in your life.
Gemini || Gemini Rising
Artistic Elegance, Sparking Co-Creation & Daily Precision. This is a month (until the 23rd) that places you in the stars, in the spotlight, and with all eyes on you. The Sun in Libra lights up your 5th house of creative-expression, presence, and leadership. It’s the house that wants you to find youthful vitality and the courage to shine in front of a crowd. For you, this can take place through your relationships, through design and aesthetics, through seeking fairness and justice, and through your elegant ways. Your style of leading and shining is likely very fair and connected to being part of a pair. Your elegance is recognised immediately as you put it out to the world with heart and strength behind it.
Every year at this time, this part of your chart gets a reboot and revitalised through the Sun’s attention. Be conscious and aware of the new energy and paths opening to you as these will set the stage that you get to take for the next year, the quality of spotlight you are cultivating, and for what. Notice what kinds of leadership roles are coming your way and decide if they feel aligned with who you are. The others you are teaming up with right now are meant to help you shine—and to shine alongside you. The aesthetic resonance you are exuding will garner attention and attraction over the next year. Put yourself out there. Be bold. Be lighthearted. Your brand of poetry and romance are at the peak of their intoxicating powers during Libra’s reign.
On October 23rd, we enter the mid-autumn phase of the year, or in astrological terms, Scorpio Season. This sign and season will reignite energy, will-power, and vitality around your productivity, how you feel useful, and your daily processes. With Scorpio ruling this 6th house area of your chart, you are likely very controlled and strategic with your days, duties, and rhythms but it’s been a year since the Sun has shared his warmth and shine here. It’s time for some fresh juices to be stirred up for you. Duties, projects, and processes that need precision and intimacy, and that possibly require transformations and deep research could call to you and the way like to feel needed and skilled. Restoration of things, dealing with other people’s money, or more intense things such as a sex work or surgery could use your skilled, controlled uses and functions. Use until the end of October to explore, research, and test new things in your daily routines. Look for little cracks in unexplored doors. Test them to see if any open with the kind of intensity and power you are looking for in your day-to-day.
The planetary ruler of Scorpio and your 6th house, Pluto, has been in retrograde since April 20th. He just returned to direct motion at the end of September so new insights gained through that long and arduous journey will start to move forward with greater power. Affecting your work and daily processes, you will find more structure and authority in your routines and rhythms, able to rebuild with better suited strategy. Wealth, using other people’s money, and intimate entanglements may feel like they’ve been an important part of your work and you will have a better grasp on this now.
October 4th: As Venus and Mars connect up in your 4th house of home and family, you will find great clarity, value, and passion around how to make your roots and security more energetic and pleasurable for you.
October 5th: The Aries Full Moon will boldly push deep passions and assertive needs up and out of you. There may be some collaborative projects, a change in industry, something interesting with groups or friends that you have been trying to ignite. This can happen at this lunation, and it seems a lot of information is coming to you through your own creative ideas and ability to lead with elegance and diplomacy. There is one challenge at this Moon. Pluto could bring some tension into the picture from an authority or from someone, or others, who you are entangled with. Try to find empowerment through the process of taking on more responsibility. It may feel like it could crack you but with focus and dedication, you could come through this lunar phase with more of your own power near the end of winter.
October 10th: Jupiter enters Scorpio. Jupiter moves signs about every 13 months, expanding all that he touches. In Libra, Jupiter gave us a year of expanding our perspectives around equality and deep trust in partners. In a broad sense it brought a grand surge of realization around the views of equality and fairness around the world. Now, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, we’ll be diving into the psychology of those who hold power, wealth, and control in our world. For you personally, this Jupiter transition could bring a year when you see more opportunity and the possibility of expansion in the realm of work projects that are fortunate and lifestyle refinement that holds greater allure and power.
October 14th: Venus enters Libra. Earlier in the month, Venus will have you feeling much pleasure and beauty through your home and family. From the 14th on, poetry will ooze from your presence, making others stop and admire how you create and express yourself. Find a boost in value through taking the lead in creative things after the 14th.
October 17th: Mercury enters Scorpio. As we enter October, the planet of communication will have your mindset focused on your creative skills. As we reach the 17th, a switch in signs will move your focus toward work and wellness. It’s a great time to learn and find any information you need to do your job better or to live a healthier life.
October 19th: The Libra New Moon sweeps in with airy grace and churning up fresh doors for you to enter and explore. These doors may hold opportunities around leadership and creative-expression. Just remember that you get to decide to keep walking through a door or after taking a peek, to leave. Not all opportunities are meant to blossom for us. Jupiter and Mercury conjunct this fertile time of forming new intentions, making the paths you decide to continue down unfold with much adventure and learning opportunity in the creative realm. Uranus is in opposition creating some very unexpected situations with headstrong groups or friends that you’ll have to figure out how to balance.
October 22nd: Mars enters Libra. Earlier in October, Mars will be helping you to get more clear and assertive about what you truly and authentically want in your home and family life. After the 22nd, the gears will shift and that ability to find passion and clarity will ramp up your creative energy and have you demanding the praise and adoration that you deserve for you elegant ways.
October 26th: Sun conjunct Jupiter. This is a once-a-year fortunate meet-up. This year in Scorpio, the vital Sun and lucky Jupiter will bring great opportunity in your work life and lifestyle. It’s a great day to initiate things related to research, precision, and empowerment and that connect to your daily rhythms or routines.

Harmonizing Roots, Manifesting Achievement & Mysterious Creativity. As October begins, Libra is the sign and season that’s in the air. It’s an elegant time. A time to start turning inward as well as to decide who to give to and turn inward with. For you, this sign and season of partnering, balance, and fairness rules over your very important 4th house of home, roots, and family. For you to find equilibrium in life, it’s important to find harmony, equality, and pleasing aesthetic balance in your most private affairs. One thing to remember is that often, to find true balance in things, you do have to tip the scales every once in a while. If things are not feeling just and elegantly fair in home and family affairs (that build your security and nurturing), don’t brush over or dance around it just to keep peace and harmony. Tip those scales and confront the issues. The only way to real, authentic harmonizing is by dealing with any issues preventing you from feeling nurtured and safe.
Once a year you get 30 days to revitalize this part of your chart. New energy and paths will start unfolding, especially between the 19th- 22nd, after the Libra New Moon. Take time until then to identify and open your heart to what it is you want to cultivate and design around issues of home and roots. Play with rearranging things at home, with tearing out pages of art and furnishings that make your heart beat, with doing lovely things with a spouse and that build the trust you place in your family. Nurture those in your home and feel nurtured by them. Find an equal balance of giving and receiving at home. The roots you are growing for stability need to be fertilized and planted in soils that are truly grounded in deep trust in others. The more you can cultivate this, the stronger and more secure you will feel. This is a time to notice the others in your home, to truly see them for their authentic selves, to show them your most authentic self, and to take some first steps toward deepening roots of trust with them.
Mid-autumn rolls in on the 23rd with the shift to Scorpio’s solar season. For you, this highlights your move to the cosmic spotlight. In your 5th house, the Sun will make your presence known and people will be watching. Whisperings of leadership opportunities could come your way with revitalized stirrings kicking up. Scorpio filtering over this part of your chart makes your creative style and presence very magnetic and mysterious. You may enjoy darkness and esoteric ways of shining, preferring a spotlight that is a bit hazy and obscured, not revealing all of your style at once. In leadership roles, you may like to be in control and the one steering projects, even if it’s from behind the scenes and if you have children, it’s likely that they will pick up on traits of stubborn intensity and wanting to assert power. Use until the end of the month to re-discover your creative style and get new juices flowing and churning inside of you so you know what seeds of creativity you’d like to plant for the next year.
Since April 20th, Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, has been in retrograde. He stationed back to direct in the last couple days of September and is starting to reveal to you the reassessments he made. It’ likely that you’ll want to rebuild and re-strategize around how you connect and communicate in order to show your authority better and attract more of those with authority to you to help move your creative life forward with precision and possibly through sharing resources within your local community.
October 4th: Venus and Mars meet up in Virgo and your 3rd house of connections and communications. It’s a great day to get out and talk about what you are up to. Try to show gratitude in all of your communications and be direct with what you are doing and looking for. Through this, it’s likely that you’ll get very helpful links and information that you need.
October 5th: The Aries Full Moon is always one that pushes up some passionate reaction. For you, this lunar phase will fall in your career sector and you may be faced with some aspirational wishes that you need to release and some that will feel like they are becoming more manifest in your life. With Mercury involved in the conversation from the Sun’s side of pushing things to your surface, some home conditions may feel like they are vying for your attention. Realize that both sides of any opposition really want the same things. If you can diplomatically explain how your career moves will bring more harmony and safety to your roots and family life, these can be sorted out.
October 10th: Jupiter enters Scorpio. Jupiter moves signs about every 13 months, expanding all that he touches. In Libra, Jupiter gave us a year of expanding our perspectives around equality and deep trust in partners. In a broad sense it brought a grand surge of realization around the views of equality and fairness around the world. Now, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, we’ll be diving into the psychology of those who hold power, wealth, and control in our world. For you personally, Jupiter will bring expansion to your creative life over the next year pushing you out of your comfort zone around how you create and lead. By the end, if you do push yourself with optimism, more empowerment and allure will embolden your presence.
October 14th: Venus enters Libra. Earlier in October, Venus will have you finding valuable connections but after the 14th, this goddess planet will move her focus to your home. Harmonizing and finding greater pleasure though your roots and family could have you feeling secure and safe in your life.
October 17th: Mercury enters Scorpio. As we enter October, our planet of communication will have you learning things and communicating at home to create better symbiosis in the atmosphere and a greater united front. After the 17th, you’ll find questions leading you to focus more on creative projects and taking the lead through getting people to share and be intimate with you.
October 19th: This year’s Libra New Moon is one that is packed with a punch. We have both Mercury and Jupiter conjunct from the neighboring sign of intense Scorpio. Sharing and opening up with honest communication could have you home life a bit more psychologically loaded this year. It seems there are some deep roots that need to be dug up and examined around how power and control play out in your private life. Find creative ways of expressing yourself in the deep work you do around cultivating more harmony and safety in your life this year. We also have Uranus in opposition to this Moon, bringing some unexpected scenarios through career and things you are trying to achieve in the outer world. New intentions formed now will be challenging this year but in the end they could transform you through helping you to see what needs to die off in your most foundational stability. Some wise counsel could come through a work colleague who has great life experience and foresight.
October 22nd: Mars enters Libra. October starts you out with Mars in Virgo and your 3rd house of communication. You may assertively seek information that can help you clarify what ideas to run with and who your community truly is. After the 22nd, Mars will lend his assertive capacity to your roots and family life.

Career Refresh, Building Security & Empowering Groups. October starts us out with the elegant season of Libra ruling over our solar waves. As we enjoy a turn toward the inner life and communing more with others, this time of year ignites and revitalizes your 10th house of career. It’s a time when you may look back on things you’ve accomplished over the past year and start to realize new aspirations forming inside of you. Until the 23rd is a time to dream of the type and quality of authority you want to be recognized for. Elegant and peace-filled Libra ruling the roost in the highest, pinnacle area of your chart brings a desire to build and crystalize things of beauty and justice in your life. You may have aspirations in the aesthetic and design fields, around issues of beauty, or in things related to the law and justice. Where Libra rules in our charts points toward areas that bring you balance and peace. Having a title and a respectable reputation likely makes your feel more balanced and calm. There may have something about your reputation tied to a partner or relationships. You could build a name for yourself through things focused on relationships: the wedding industry, partnership development, couple counseling, areas of diplomacy, and mediation.
Be aware of new paths and openings in your life around your aspirations. This is a time when new seeds forming in this regard will get planted, potentially growing more concrete over the course of the next year. It’s important to truly find those things that resonate with your authentic embrace. The more aligned they are with your sense of balance and personal brand of harmonics, the great the chance that they will blossom with beauty in the spring and summer.
As we reach the last third of October, mid-autumn takes over on the 23rd, and with it, Scorpio Season. For you this brings fresh stirrings and revitalizing to your 11th house of groups and friendships. Being part of co-creation and humanity may make you feel more powerful and empowered. It’s likely that you find yourself with many circles that are private, secretive, sexual, and possibly wealthy. Your connection to research, precision, and control can bring more power to the groups you associate with and it’s possible that the things that give you hope for a brighter future are ones where you have access to greater intimacy and shared resources. In the last days of October, take time to notice the groups you find yourself in and your function inside of them. How do you contribute to society and creation? Empowerment is the key word to focus on. If you put yourself around others who are empowering instead of try to take away or give you power, the more real power you will be surrounded and elevated through.
Since 2008, Pluto, Scorpio’s ruler, has been in your own sign. He’s been uprooting a lot of baggage and blocks to your true essence. It’s not an easy process and it’s possible that a lot of this work has come through the networks and groups that you have been a part of. Pluto is hell bent on transforming you which means letting parts of you die off for rebirth in a better form. Pluto’s been in a retrograde phase since April 20th so it’s possible that you’ve felt foggy, personally, as well as around friendships, for many months. He returned to direct in the last days of September so in October, you will start to get the feedback of the review and reflection that this intense planet has been doing. By feeling empowered around your personal wishes and desires, you bring greater and more powerful groups into your life, but the work starts inside of you. This is a month to really focus on that and on what it is you truly want for you.
October 5th: The Aries Full Moon wants you to open your authentic self up and elevate it into the world. For you, this sign rules your 4th house of home and family. By being true to who you are in your most private life, you feed your roots and security with strength and passion. Ask yourself in the days surrounding this Moon, what it is you truly need inorder to feel safe and secure in life. It’s likely that some of the answers will be to support yourself and to have personal freedom to do as you please in your home life. With Pluto squaring off to this Moon and Mercury opposed, it’s likely that some career interests are tugging at you to be more relational right now. By blending how you build trust in the outer world with how you spark new passion at home, you can do bold and passionate things that bring you great security. You may be struggling with some power or control issues in how you assert yourself around this Moon and this could be causing some tension with family and career. The trick will be to face you needs for power and control, and allow a part of you to die off when you see what comes up. Surround yourself with things that empower you—rather than suck it out of you or give it away to you.
October 10th: Jupiter enters Scorpio. Jupiter moves signs about every 13 months, expanding all that he touches. In Libra, Jupiter gave us a year of expanding our perspectives around equality and deep trust in partners. In a broad sense it brought a grand surge of realization around the views of equality and fairness around the world. Now, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, we’ll be diving into the psychology of those who hold power, wealth, and control in our world. For you, Jupiter will move into your 11th house of friendships and groups. You may walk through some big doors over the next year that introduce you to new people, industries, or movements. Although these big new opportunities that come up will feel powerful, they will also push you to face difficult things buried inside of you and they will transform you. It’s not an easy process but when we allow aspects of our lives to die, those things create rich fertilization for you to grow.
October 14th: Venus enters Libra. For the last half of October, Venus will bring greater value and pleasure to you’re the realm of your aspirations, possibly through design, law, or a partner. It’s a great time for moving things forward with ease in your achievements.

We also have expansive and mentally busy signals that will push your boundaries around friendship, and your psychology around power and control inside of groups. These may be difficult to grasp and understand but what they uproot inside of you will help bring better self-awareness and greater empowerment in the end.
October 22nd: Mars enters Libra. The last third of October is made for you to clear out and release any old baggage around what you want in your career and aspirations. As you let go of old aspirations, this brings space for new desires and the bravery needed to go after what you newly want in life.

This sign of peaceful resonance and harmonizing rules over your 9th house of pushing boundaries and sharing insights for higher meaning and understanding. As you turn toward a more peaceful inner place as the days grow shorter, a realization of a need to find deep trust in close others, or partners, will start to surface. For you, this may come most naturally through sharing ideas and philosophies about life. As you start to explore realms of knowledge, things around religion, higher education, publishing, or foreign travel (or cultures) may start to bubble up with new energy and openings in your life. You have an ability to bridge divides in ways of life and beliefs, being a very important peace keeper in our diverse world. You might attract deeply trusted others through shared views of life and when pushing your own boundaries see past divisive points of view. Especially now, in a world that’s getting more and more polarized, you can be the glue that helps others understand and accept each other with more grace and elegance.
Until the 23rd, the Sun is revitalizing this part of your chart.

Seeds planted now could blossom into grand new worlds opening up to you in the spring and summer. Worlds filled with greater access to design, relationships, and harmonizing.
Scorpio Season arrives in the last third of October, starting on the 23rd. This sign and season rules over the pinnacle point of your chart, so the highest climb you aspire to in your life. It represents areas that you have to give full focus and attention to in order to arrive at. In layman’s terms, it represents what you wish to achieve in life: Your authority, career, title, and achievements. This is the part of your chart that gets fresh energy each year at this time. You initiated things around career last year at this time and now it’s been 11 months since you’ve had the Sun’s vital warmth to ignite your will-power here. The last days of October should be used to pay attention to what needs to go in terms of aspirations and what new stirrings are starting to feel more powerful inside of you. With Scorpio ruling this part of you chart, you likely seek mountain peaks that are powerful and mysterious. You may enjoy holding authority as the power behind the throne—but being the one really holding the power. You may be good at getting results in things mysterious, esoteric, secretive, and that give you access to shared resources. You can create things of permanence with powerful resources as well.
Since April 20th, the ruler of Scorpio and your 10th house of career, Pluto, has been in retrograde. Now back to direct motion since the last couple days of September, you will start to feel a bit more clarity around your aspirations, but with that, you may realize that you went about a few things incorrectly and some rebuilding may need to be implemented. Your title might have been obscure for a time but that should also begin to clear up. There is likely something around the arts, mysticism, and the collective consciousness that’s been shaping your aspirations since 2008. That should also feel more clear than it has in many months. Powerful things and resources may be coming available to you through the world of the unseen and psychic to boost your position and title.
October 5th: The Aries Full Moon wants you to get clear about your authenticity and deepest desires. It’s this sign that creates sparks in us and that give us bravery and passion to forge new paths in life. For you, a Full Moon in this sign will have you pushing your authentic self into the world through you fresh ideas, collecting information that’s pioneering, and engaging with community in an assertive and get-shit-done manner.
October 10th: Jupiter enters Scorpio. Jupiter moves signs about every 13 months, expanding all that he touches. In Libra, Jupiter gave us a year of expanding our perspectives around equality and deep trust in partners. In a broad sense it brought a grand surge of realization around the views of equality and fairness around the world. Now, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, we’ll be diving into the psychology of those who hold power, wealth, and control in our world. For your sign, Jupiter will open new and expansive opportunities around career and aspirations. You may come up against some power struggles and a need to feel in control around things you are striving to achieve in the outer world. As this happens, it’s an opportunity to get more vulnerable around how you share in the things you are building. It may seem paradoxical but as you do this, more difficulty will spring out of you around needing to control your reputation and title but this also brings greater self-awareness. As you become more aware of power needs in your worldly position, you can totally transform yourself to be more embracing of empowerment rather than power for its own sake. By empowering others, you empower yourself and this helps you to make a very secure place for yourself in the world.
October 14th: Venus enters Libra. This will bring up deep trust and value in your beliefs and possibly through a partner. Things should feel easier and more pleasurable around seeking and pushing the boundaries of what you believe in your life.

October 19th: This year’s Libra New Moon arrives at the end of Libra’s season. The time of forming new intentions for the year around harmonizing, trusting others, and creating balance is a bit loaded. Libra rules your 9th house of all things foreign, shared thinking (religion, publishing, philosophy), and higher education. It’s your house of seeking. An opposition from shocking Uranus could have you wanting to deviate from your normal modes of finding alignment with others, bringing up some erratic and unpredictable reactions from those in your daily communications. A bit of a shake-up could bring you to new groups and friendships and this could test your relationships and beliefs in life. Trust yourself and trust those who know how to be fair and things will turn out alright. There is also some intensity coming from planets in neighboring Scorpio. Some growth and mental focus on aspirations could somehow blend with your beliefs this year. This can be good but it will also likely test your trust and ability to share well with others.
October 22nd: Mars enters Libra. In the last days of the month, our planet of assertion will have you clearing away the old in terms of how you harmonize your beliefs with others. By letting past beliefs go, space is created and new passions will arise in you around how you want to seek and understand others.

October 26th: Sun conjunct Jupiter. This once a year connection will take place in your career sector. Take advantage of this to find life and vitality for what you want to achieve over the next year and walk toward any opportunities that come up around this date.
