Horoscopes October 2018
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
When the Sun is in Libra it is your queue to consider others. Firstly your primary relationship. And then business partners or other primary relationships. What needs attention? Your relationship status is highlighted. If you are single do you want to be? If you are in a committed relationship then your partner’s life impacts yours. How can you support your significant other? Basically the focus is off you and onto others. Your ruling Planet Mars suggests that you may need to let go of something so that you can move forward towards the next stage of a project or objective.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
All systems slow for Taurus during October. Your ruling planet Venus is Retrograde and in your opposite Sign of Scorpio. You need to be aware of relationship politics. You may be tempted to control situations with loved ones but you would be better advised to hold your own counsel. If loved ones are upset then you need to stand firmly on neutral ground and support them as best you can. If you are forced to pick sides in any conflict then choose wisely, knowing that there will be consequences when Venus turns direct in November.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
October is a fun-filled month for you. Like a butterfly you can flit from one pleasurable activity to another. You can literally stop and smell the roses. You may spend more time with young people, or in romantic pastimes or perhaps speculating on something enjoyable. As some would say you can listen to your inner child and play. If you enjoy solitary activities then you can indulge yourself this month without fear of negative feedback. If you are a more outgoing Gemini then creative projects flourish as do harmonious social activities.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
You are likely to enjoy your natural habitat this month – the sanctuary of home. If you live alone then now is the ideal time to hunker down and revel in homebound activities. Cooking, cleaning and gardening may appeal. You may choose to redecorate in a way that lifts your spirits. If you have a busy household then family relationships are central, particularly those with younger members of the household. Your diplomacy skills may be needed. It is possible that you make plans this month to move house if your private needs have changed.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
The art of communication is central to your success during October. If you are diplomatic and considerate then your social and professional arenas are likely to benefit. However if you resort to gossip then this could backfire. Learn to listen when necessary and speak when appropriate. If something is playing on your mind then connect with a trusted confidante. Otherwise you may enjoy focussing on a project that required concentration. You could set up a new computer, social media account or sales campaign. New skills acquired now will benefit in the long run.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
It is time to balance the budget. A wise man once said that you are rich when your income exceeds your expenditure. Virgos are usually frugal. However this is just your Sun Sign. Spending habits extend beyond the Sun Sign and so you may need to tighten the purse strings if you are not usually thrifty. If possible you could also look at ways of increasing your income. Perhaps it is time to ask for an increase in your salary, or to find ways to boost sales if you are self-employed. Apply your excellent analytical skills to your financial affairs.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Your focus is usually on your loved ones. This month your ruling planet Venus is turning Retrograde indicating that you need to turn your attention back and concentrate on yourself. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself to decide on what is really important right now. What do you need to be happy? Then go out and do it. Indulge yourself with a massage, a makeover or a fashion accessory. You may even like to purchase a really attractive mirror as a reminder that it is ok to be a little selfish from time to time.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Two fortunate planets – Jupiter and Venus – are in your Zodiac Sign this month indicating that luck is on your side. Opportunities arise now in your love life and your financial arena. You may need some time out to consider your options. What do you truly desire when it comes to romance and money? Once you have answers then the time has come to focus on how you want these two areas to flourish and make the most of the opportunities. Fortune favours the bold, so the Latin proverb goes.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
It is time to pursue your hopes, dreams and wishes. October is a busy month during which your social calendar is full. Look around and see which friends, groups and clubs support your dreams and which do not. Sagittarians are generous and warm-hearted souls and mostly you are likely to attract positive connections, those who appreciate your optimistic nature. However you may also, unwittingly, have been a magnet for some friends who take advantage of your good nature. Focus on the positive. It may be time to part ways with some connections to make way for new adventures.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
You are likely to be in the middle of a venture this month, working towards an end goal that has a long-term advantage rather than short-term satisfaction. You may be involved in something that feels as though it won’t even end, that it is suspended in time. You need to be patient and keep working towards the end goal. The end is nearer than you think. You are in transition with key planets about to change direction. Whether you are a domestic or mountain goat you know how to work steadily towards a goal.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
If you want to broaden your horizons then you have to face your fears and let go of any fixed ideas that are holding you back. October is a time of adjustment, during which you have the chance to really soar, but only if you truly let go of obstacles from the past. You may be relieved to know that a karmic situation is soon coming to an end. What more do you need to do to bring things to a closure? You are letting go in order to move into more positive and creative partnerships.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Recent or current events are changing the course of your life. You are well aware of the cycles of life as you are going through a changing one of your own. Hold on to the things and people who are dear to your heart and let go of anything else. A painful situation from the past may momentarily return in order that you may really heal your hurt feelings. Let go and focus on positive and loving connections. Let your imagination soar and you will rise above any rough emotional seas.
