Your Horoscope For October 2018

Find out what this month holds for you.
By Jessica Lanyadoo

The big news this month is that Venus, the planet that governs relationships, hooking up, your finances, and values, is going retrograde from October 5 through November 16. Retrogrades are always a time to take a pause and look within. Consider what you value, who you value, and how tangibly you express that value. Relationships may be a source of confusion as the space between the potential and the reality of what exists between you and others demands your care and attention.

Horoscopes October 2018

Libra

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You always have the choice to show up with your true self, even if it isn’t the easiest choice to make. This month your ruling planet, Venus, is retrograde, and this makes it an excellent time for slowing down and looking within. Instead of trying to direct or placate your relationships, strive to better understand your role in them. Pay particular attention to what isn’t working or just feels off, as those are the things that need your attention and care the most, sweet Libra.

Scorpio

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Your relationships are in a major state of flux. You can try to “fix” things, but that would be the wrong approach. Seek understanding, not answers. Try to develop your connections instead of directing them. This month is likely to bring you major changes, and if you rush to determine what it all means, you’re not likely to get an awesome answer. Allow space for things to develop and for you to sit with how it all feels, Scorpio.

Sagittarius

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

When things don’t go your way it’s easy to get upset – who wouldn’t? – but you’re likely to have unexpected opportunities arise from even the most upsetting of circumstances this month. Instead of allowing yourself to get caught up in what you don’t have, fix your attention on what you do. By aligning with the abundance you have in your life you’ll be better able to see your options — and be open to what comes next.

Capricorn

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

It’s time for leaps of faith and acts of bravery, Cappy. You’re ready to do the things that you’ve been putting off, to challenge yourself, and to make life-affirming choices. The astrology of this month is helping you to actualize your hopes and goals, but you’ve got to put in the work. Stay emotionally present for the highs and lows that you experience as you find new ways of being present in your own life, my love.

Aquarius

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

There’s so much changing in the world around you that it may be hard to find your centre of strength within. As your circumstances change, so must you, Aquarius. This month will present you with challenges that may make you want to dig in your heels, but don’t do it. When you’re feeling uncertain of the path ahead is when you most need to be flexible and open. Act as though anything is possible, even when you’re scared it isn’t, my love.

Pisces

Feb. 19-March 20

The pressure that you place on yourself to succeed doesn’t do much to actually help you get it right. Find ways of motivating yourself that don’t involve being bullying yourself, or focusing only on comparisons or what you don’t yet have. Create space in your life (and in your head!) to validate and appreciate what you’ve got, and then leverage that to help you get what you want. Getting where you want to be doesn’t have to be a struggle against where you are, Pisces.

Aries

March 21-April 19

When things get complicated (as they sometimes often do) is exactly when you most need to remember what you’re really trying to achieve. This month may start off with some stressors that you have to tend to, but try to take them in stride, Aries. The new moon in your relationship house on the 8th is a powerful time for you to remember who you are, what you care about, and to realign yourself with what you mean to do.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

Your ruling planet goes retrograde on October the 5th (and will stay there until November the 16th), and you can expect things to feel topsy-turvy because of it. This is a time of great change, but it’s meant to come from the inside out, Taurus. If you try to adjust the playing pieces on the table, you’re unlikely to feel satisfied. Look within for the answers, and then shift your behavior accordingly. You’re ready for this, my love.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

It’s time to take a deep breath and sit on down, Twin Star. You’ve been running on empty, vacillating between blind faith and fearful pessimism, and it’s taking a toll on you. You’ve either been using too much emotion and not enough logic, or the other way around — the point is that you haven’t been looking at things from a consistent perspective, so you aren’t able to see the answers, no matter how hard you try. It’s time to pick a lane and stay in it for a while, my love.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

While you can’t predict the future, you can do your utmost to create the conditions you want to be living in tomorrow with what you choose to do today. It’s time to call in the big guns: courage, empathy, and motivation. You’re ready to lay new foundations in spite of your fears and past hurts. Take risks that feed your heart, reflect your soul, and allow you to be more of the person that you want to be, sweet Moonchild.

Leo

July 23-Aug. 22

Being willful is a powerful thing, but when your will meets resistance, sometimes you’ve got to yield. Things are changing, Leo, and if you try to control the changes before you understand them, you’re likely to create new, totally confusing problems for yourself. When you don’t have clarity, or are stressed and unsure what you need, don’t try to “fix” things — it’s at these times that you need to regain your balance. Tend to your insides this month.

Virgo

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

There’s only one way to get there, Virgo, and it’s by putting one foot in front of the other. While there’s lots of instability in the world around you (and maybe even within you) the energy is actually available for you to leverage it quite gracefully. The key is to seek the potential in your situation instead of the limitations. Yes, you have to work to make it happen, but you also have so much support available to you if you’re willing to see it.
