WHAT THE STARS HAVE IN STORE FOR OCTOBER

The ever so lovely astrologer and reader of the stars SRNAVERSE deep dives into what we can expect from the stars this October:

 

Welcome Libra season! Welcome October!   

A harmonious New Moon in Libra appears on the 6th/7th, sympathising with the Libra Sun. It’s a special time for relationships, as we encourage communication in all its glorious forms. Libra season is for the people’s person - it’s all about sharing, caring and ‘daring to be’. It’s important throughout this air/yang phase, that we do not inflict misery on other people, or on thyself - don’t remain unconscious to the pitfalls of the ego! The New Moon is all about the cyclical nature of time, here we are yet again, in a new month, on the precipice of something great, something new. In diplomatic and friendly Libra, merging with Mars also in Libra, we can regain a sense of confidence in our path forward, by looking around and rejoining the community. You see, what goes around comes around, and this lunation penetrates that notion strongly - be careful who you are kind or unkind to going up the ladder, because sooner or later, you will pass them on your way back down. 

On the 17th/18th, Jupiter stations direct after months of retrograde flippling between Pisces/Aquarius. We feel a sigh of relief, and are given the tick of approval to continue. Mercury is still retrograde until mid-month, stationing direct on the 18th. However, we have the post shadow phase (until November 1st) to contend with. Relationship dramas re-swirl around our heart and head, making us feel a little lost.  A Full Moon in the bold sign of Aries blesses the night sky on the 20th, building on the opposing energy of the Libra/Aries axis. We will need to compromise if we wish to see better future prospects. Aries is measured.. to a degree, and extremely resilient - in line with a Libra Sun, the energy can feel as though you’re walking through a fire. To cleanse, to redeem, to transform. You are not alone, yet this experience is very unique, very personal to each one of us. Spooky Scorpio Season begins on the 23rd, collectively drawing us to more sinister and sexy experiences. We can be extra amorous, curious, passionate and hot headed - so be careful what you let play out. Mars will also enter Scorpio on the 30th, intensifying our emotions. Mars in Scorpio has a strange effect on us, and really propels this notion of the ‘unusual’ in our everyday life. Settle into the moment, be ready to assume the form - and then get ready to change again. We float in an ocean of love. Always. 

Blessings,

Srna 

Aries

March 21 - April 19

It’s time to freestyle, Aries. Mercury is retrograde for most of the month, keeping you frustrated in the slow love lane. Commitments are halted or maybe someone is questioning your reasons. This is because it will be activating your 7th house - which only deals with the ‘real deal’ in terms of partnerships.  A New Moon in Libra will merge with Mars (your ruler) also in this intimate 7th house on the 7th. Make space for someone or something new, especially if you’ve been evading how you really feel for someone. Venus sits in your 9th house of wisdom most of the month, meaning you can feel especially spiritual or intuitive. A Full Moon in your sign on the 20th is special and important, occurring in the 1st house of self and personality. You will ask yourself some personal questions around this date, as it’s your half way point to your birthday next year. If you’re unhappy, you can adjust and change now. Finally, a Scorpio Sun moves into your 8th house of mystery and intimacy from the 23rd. 

 

Taurus

April 20 - May 20

Your star has been on the rise, Taurus. October will revolve around routine, better nutrition and an all round healthier approach to what you do, and how you do it. A New Moon in Libra occurs early on the 7th in your 6th house of work rhythm and personal responsibility. Merging with the Sun, this lunation can feel very illuminating. Mercury is retrograde until the 18th (also in Libra) for you all month, again in your 6th house of health. You will be focused on feeling good and re-aligning with your workload. Commitments can feel heavy or burdensome, but there is potential to improve future prospects. Venus then moves into the mysterious 8th house helping to deepen intimate bonds and love life. Self-care is important here, so if you’re juggling everyone's emotions, give yourself time to put yours first. The Full Moon in Aries on the 20th will light up your private 12th house. If you feel a tad overwhelmed, pinpoint what must be done and let everything else fall behind you, until you’re ready to pick it back up. 

 

Gemini

May 21 - June 20

A promotion rewards the spirit, Gemini. Your ruler Mercury is retrograde for most of the month in your creative 5th house. This means that whatever was started in August/early September has a chance to be completed now. You are finalising house, business and money matters, but be sure to double check! A New Moon in Libra harmonises with you deeply, as the air energy accentuates the good vibes in your life. Arriving in your inspirational 5th house, you may be falling pregnant, planning a family or just enjoying someone else’s children. You are cozy in your home, expressing yourself through music, food and art. Venus then moves into your house of love on the 8th - it’s time to let bygones be bygones. As a partner makes it up to you in a very sentimental way. The Aries Full Moon arrives on the 20th in your 11th house of friendship, this cements that October is all about people, and how you adapt to those around you. Finally, Mars will join your 6th house of work at the end of the month, focusing energy on career and wellbeing. 

 

Cancer

June 21 - July 22

You feel conflicted going into October, Cancer. Give yourself time to stop, look and listen as Mercury is retrograde most of the month in your 4th house of home and family. You are in a compromising position when it comes to selling, leasing and buying. A retrograde in the 4th house means you are meditating on what you want around you going forward, in terms of family dynamics, housing and children. A New Moon in Libra then doubles up on the energy of the 4th on the 7th of the month. It’s possible a discovery leads to a big lifestyle change! Focus on keeping things simple. If a partner is far from home at the moment, take a time out to exercise, pamper yourself or just relax alone. This will all improve your health. On the 20th, a Full Moon in Aries opposes the Libra Sun, occurring in your 10th house of achievement. You may be building a business or working within a large organisation. In some way, you are ‘performing’. If things feel uncomfortable, know it’s a part of the internal growth. 

 

Leo

July 23 - August 22

A deep happiness surrounds one area of your life, Leo. October begins with Mercury retrograde in your 3rd house of communication. Mercury rules the 3rd house of intelligence and information, so it can feel especially overwhelming! Something in your life is in its completion phase. You are networking and connecting with new people, helping you form a sense of community in your life. You are motivated to achieve goals as Mars pushes you toward professional achievements. Venus is in your romance sector from the 8th, providing passion by the bucket load. Celebrate those who make you feel seen and understood. Shelve making big decisions until after the 18th, and then take a no nonsense approach to what you must do! A Full Moon in Aries occurs in your adventurous 9th house, helping you take something to the next level. You are activating a spiritual element in your life, as you recommit to someone or something.

 

Virgo

August 23 - September 22

Your imagination is overactive, making you reactive, Virgo. Mercury, your ruler, is retrograde until the 18th, in the sign of Libra. Appearing in your 2nd house of finances, it’s important not to negotiate, sign off on and/or agree to big projects. This is because the energy is very inflexible right now and changing any way the wind blows. You may need to scale down or retire a pipe dream for now. A New Moon on the 7th occurs in the 2nd house also, strengthening the potential for fluctuations in business/money. There is some dialogue happening around spending and saving, to reach a state of harmony, you will need to get comfortable with the idea of ‘sharing’. On the 20th, an Aries Full Moon opposes the Sun in Libra, occurring in your mysterious 8th house. This can encourage romance and union if things are going well in your relationships, by the same merit, if things are feeling a little sour, they can be especially murky at this time. 

 

Libra 

September 23 - October 22 

Happy Birthday beautiful and fair minded, Libra. It’s most definitely your time to shine, so don’t be shy! Mercury is in your sign until 18/19th, in its final retrograde phase, keeping you, for the most part, enjoying life behind the scenes. You are feeling reflective, as you look back on the past 9 months of 2021. A New Moon in your sign occurs on the 7th, merging with Mercury and the Sun in your 1st house of personality, image and heart. Mars sends good vibrations to you on this date, helping you refine who you are and correct any grievances you may have. Use this date to start a new diet, exercise regime or spiritual practice. Venus the next day moves into your quirky 3rd house of communication. Love languages come in many forms, and it will be important to define what yours is. A Full Moon on the 20th occurs in Aries, your opposite sign, concentrating its energy on your relationships. A new love may come into your life and surprise you. Scorpio Season sets off on the 23rd in your 2nd house of finances, turning your attention onto your creativity and natural talents. 

 

Scorpio

October 23 - November 21

A surprise leaves much needed wiggle room, Scorpio. It’s almost birthday time which leaves you feeling excited for what’s to come toward the end of October when both Mercury and Jupiter are in direct motion, pulling in new beginnings. Until the 18th, however, Mercury in Libra is retrograde in your private 12th house. Whatever began in early September can now culminate or you can expect a long lost friend/lover to make contact with you. A New Moon in Libra also occurs in this spiritual 12th house on the 7th, bridging the gap between the ‘unseen’. You can feel especially intuitive, even knowing when something is about to happen. Venus then moves into your 2nd house of finance, helping you be of service to others - and get cash! On the 20th, an Aries Full Moon shifts into your sporty 6th house of health and mental agility. A restructuring can happen in your career, or maybe you leave a job/accept a new offer. The Sun then enters your sign on the 23rd, heralding the deep, dark, sexy waters of Scorpio, remember to treat yourself. 

 

Sagittarius

November 22 - December 21

October presents a reality check, Sagittarius. A New Moon in Libra merges with Mercury and the Sun in your 11th house of friendship and community. You can realign with old friends or perhaps rethink current ties to specific people. It’s not enough anymore just to have known each other for a long time, it’s about whether or not these individuals are beneficial to your current situation. On the 8th, Venus moves into your sign raising good vibes and popularity. You are feeling peaceful as it shifts into your 1st house of ‘self’. On the 18th, both Mercury and Jupiter stations direct helping you resume business and collaborative projects that may have stalled. Jupiter is your ruler (although it’s in Aquarius now), so this will have an outstanding effect on you, aiding proactiveness. An Aries Full Moon happens on the 20th in your playful 5th house - it can be a good time to get honest with someone you love. 

 

Capricorn

December 22 - January 19

The cycle is corrected, Capricorn. October is a sweet time for you, because both Mercury and Jupiter stations direct mid-month, giving the green light to move far and wide. The New Moon in Libra joins with the Sun in your 10th house of ambition on the 6/7th. This will aid you in career momentum, or perhaps you’ll ponder on taking  the direction of your finances somewhere unusual. You can be going back and forth between wanting to scale down on work load or taking it up a notch before the year is over. Venus then moves into your spiritual 12th house, helping you keep calm. You could be diving deep into the ‘dream world’, as you understand that some things can’t be seen as much as they can be felt. Finally, an Aries Full Moon on the 20th brings a love/home matter to fruition. Changes connected to a family unit are apparent, as you give energy to this area of your life.  

 

Aquarius

January 20 - February 18

Extreme changes are coming under the light of a Libra New Moon, Aquarius. The pulse of the month is showing up in a very accelerated way for you personally. It all begins on the 7th with a New Moon merging with the Sun in your 9th house of education, travel and philosophy. You are motivated to achieve goals, and you’re determined to give meaning to your routine. The next day, Venus enters Sagittarius and your social 11th house. You encounter a friend who could become a lover, or maybe you’re just thriving in the relationship you’re in. Life can feel rather karmic, as if it’s ‘meant to be’. On the 20th, an Aries Full Moon encourages you to negotiate, discuss and educate as it shifts into your 3rd house of communication. Jupiter is direct in your sign after a few months retrograde, on the 19th, guiding you to stand firm.

 

Pisces

February 19 - March 20

Life is about compromises, Pisces. October by that merit can feel a little emotional, but you’ll come out better for it. Mercury is retrograde until the 18th in the sign of Libra, helping you rethink finances, taxes and spending. You may be deep into a project or collaboration, as you search for more information. A New Moon merges with the Libra Sun on the 6/7th, occurring in your 8th house of rebirth. If you’re obsessing about an old conversation and what you wish you could have said differently, now may be your chance for a re-do. Physically, you’re moving on from past hurts and this generally improves your mood. On the 20th, a Full Moon in Aries opposes the Sun, in your house of cash. There is a culmination coming, finally - so stay flexible to what shows up. On the 23rd, Scorpio Season begins harmonising with your sign and your international 9th house of travel.
