Libra season finds the sun illuminating a very private sector of your chart, encouraging you to catch up on rest, spend some time alone, and meditate. This season is a brilliant time for dream work and for shining a light on your shadow self so that you can explore your past and your psyche, and begin healing. It’s a wonderful time for a silent retreat and psychic development, and you’re in an even more reclusive mood than usual, mysterious scorpion!

October opens on an intense note with darling Venus squaring off with your ruling planet Pluto in Capricorn on October 1. A few days later, Pluto ends its retrograde and messenger planet Mercury enters your sign on October 3, marking a big shift in energy around communication. The atmosphere is especially intense and passionate, but watch out for jealousy and obsessive behavior! Mercury in your sign is helping you see through all the B.S., but there will be quite a bit of it for you to handle because people are saying pretty much anything to get their way—they just badly want what they want!

Early October can be a juicy time for romance as long as you’re very aware of the power dynamics you’re engaging with. Watch out for love triangles! If someone is being difficult, bring in a third party to help mediate the situation. You’re fantastic at keeping secrets, but if someone is misbehaving, don’t give them more power by allowing them to do it unseen.

Action planet Mars enters Libra on October 4, finding you more active at night than usual—make sure to keep a dream journal by your bedside. This is a powerful time to sit in meditation and to do inner work, including releasing any anger you may have been repressing, through journaling or in therapy. Mars is the warrior planet, and while it’s in harmony-seeking Libra, you may feel confused about where to direct your emotions and passions, especially when it comes to your anger. Don’t be the scorpion who stings itself: Go to a kickboxing class, or write a letter to someone who wronged you, and then rip it up into little pieces!

  • Here’s a guided journal that’ll give you the space to record and reflect upon your dreams.
  • If you haven’t found the right in-person therapist yet, you can get matched with one online and have sessions that work with your schedule.
  • If kickboxing isn’t for you, there are plenty of other high-intensity workout classes out there that you’re bound to find something you like.

Surprising conversations take place in your relationships as Mercury opposes unruly Uranus in Taurus on October 7. Open your mind: Being a free thinker is the best way to use this communicative energy. Besides, many of the conversations you have this month will be reconsidered during Mercury retrograde, which begins at the end of the month. The sun also clashes with Saturn in Capricorn on October 7, showing you where your limits are and urging you to say “no” to something you simply don’t have the time or energy for.

Sexy Venus enters your sign, Scorpio, on October 8, finding you feeling more seductive than usual. Lately, you’ve been in a private mood, but Venus in Scorpio will inspire you to show off! Watch out for surprises in your relationships on October 8 when Venus opposes Uranus—if you can keep an open mind, these surprises could be plenty of fun! Or, you might find that your tastes have changed, and you want something totally new. Uranus is the planet of experimentation, so go ahead and take a risk.

Scorpios are known as the sign of death and rebirth: You’ve lived many lives, and during this full moon in Aries, you’re ready to begin a new one as you release old patterns and responsibilities that you’ve outgrown. This is a powerful time to break bad habits and cross items off your to-do list. A big project is being released into the world! You’re making headway on your tasks or, potentially, you’re completely leaving a job or gig behind and reworking your schedule entirely! Since Aries is the sign of independence, you’re seeking more autonomy in your day-to-day life; this is a lucky time to do so, as the sun and Jupiter—the planet of growth and expansion—make a harmonious connection that bodes especially well for your finances!

  • If you’ve taken a good look at your past dating habits and recognized more than a few bad patterns you need to break, you’re already starting down the right path! Here’s some advice from a few women who have done some serious self-reflecting in that department.
  • There’s something so satisfying about physically crossing an item off your to-do list. Write that list down in a cute journal so you don’t forget to look at it while you’re getting stuff done!
  • A dark jasmine and amber–scented candle just for you, dear Scorpio.

Mercury makes a helpful connection with Saturn on October 14, creating a supportive energy for communication and organization. But the sun also clashes with your ruling planet Pluto on October 14, which will challenge you not to be a total control freak. That said, if you’re in therapy, this could mean turning an important corner around naming the issues that have been eluding you. Break out your journal if you haven’t spent time with it in a while.

Mercury connects with imaginative Neptune in Pisces on October 15, bringing a boost to your intuitive powers and creating a harmonious, empathetic atmosphere for communication with your lovers and your creative collaborators, too. Mercury connects with Pluto on October 19, inspiring you to share secrets. But take note: Many of the conversations that take place this month will be revisited in November due to the upcoming retrograde!

Venus makes a supportive connection with Saturn on October 20, making this a wonderful time to discuss your long-term plans with friends, family, or partners. October 21 is one of the most romantic days of the month, as Venus mingles with dreamy Neptune, whisking you off your feet! Everything feels so much more magical than usual; we don’t believe in soul mates here at Astro Guide, but on this day, we just might!

Your season begins on October 23: Happy solar return, little scorpion! The sun shining in your sign fills you with energy and confidence, and Venus’s connection with your ruling planet Pluto on October 25 finds you having profound conversations about the things you hold closest to your heart. The new moon in your sign arrives on October 27, finding you making a fresh start, perhaps even giving yourself a makeover, and rethinking what you want in your relationships. At the same time, asking for what you want feels uncomfortable or impossible due to Mars squaring off with Saturn on this day. While new moons are the time to imagine your wildest dreams and picture the impossible being true, your imagination feels limited at this time. Now is the time to say “no” to something. If you’ve been avoiding rejecting or ending something, this new moon may be exactly when you’re supposed to wipe the slate clean and state your boundary.

A surprising confrontation takes place in your relationships as the sun opposes rebellious Uranus on October 28. A freedom-seeking mood is in the air, and it may be time to take more space in your relationships. This doesn’t mean partnerships need to end, but they just might if there is a lack of flexibility, trust, and independence. You may also run into someone very unexpected at this time! A fun, social energy arrives as Mercury meets Venus on October 30, inspiring a charming, flirtatious mood. Mercury retrograde begins in your sign on October 31, so you can expect to rethink many of the conversations and plans you make this month. Mercury retrogrades bring annoying delays and miscommunications, but they are also a lovely time to rest, relax, go within, rework projects, and pick up things that were left on the back burner. Definitely watch out as you might run into people from your past! Avoid signing contracts, making important or costly purchases, or traveling, as Mercury rules commerce and our commutes, in addition to communication. Good luck this month, little scorpion, and see you in November!
