Your October Horoscope
The nicest time of the year is here! On September 23, the Sun moves into the Libra, turning all of this past months’ hardworking Virgoan energy into something a little more light and airy, and instead of working insane amounts of overtime every week, now you have plenty of time to hang out with your squad, get some more action going on in your love life and spend as much time with other nice people as you want!
This next month is all about strengthening your current friendships and partnerships, making tons of new connections, and getting to know yourself through the way your relationships operate. A lot of the time, people forget that relationships of any kind are a two-way street—if you feel like your love life is a little meh, or you’re having a not-so-great time when you’re with that one specific friend, Libra season helps you to figure out what it is you’re doing to contribute to the problem and how the other person is causing issues, too.
Virgo season was all about organizing your life and cleaning up your space, and now Libra season is helping you to do that—but with your relationships. If you’re feeling like one of your relationships is nearing its expiration date, now’s the time of year to tell the other person so you can start meeting new people who can provide healthier, stronger relationships.
Venus is the planet of love and pleasure, and it’s also the ruling planet of Libra—that means that the general atmosphere of the next few weeks is very Venusian and everything you do is just a little lovelier. Even the most hardheaded, stubborn people (I’m looking at you, Taurus and Capricorn) are way more willing to cooperate and be flexible right now, because things just tend to run way smoother right now when you’re working as a team or collaborating with someone else. At work or school, working as a group is the best way to get shit done. If you’re trying to get a little more action going in your love life, double dates can be a ton of fun right now. If you’re just trying to expand your social circle, make a group chat and get all of your friends to go out for drinks, and you’re bound to add a new face or two to your core group. This is also a great time to get in touch with your creative side, because Venus rules art and beauty as well. Sign you and a friend up for an art class, or take your crush on a date to an art museum, or just renovate and redecorate your apartment—Libra season’s vibes promise to make it heaps of fun!
Libras get a lot of shit because of their stereotypical superficialness and flakiness, which isn’t a totally inaccurate way to classify the air sign—Libras are known for their classic indecisiveness and vagueness, so they’re the sign most likely to make separate plans with a hundred different people on the same night and only show up to one or two. It’s not like they’re ditching people intentionally or anything, they just like to keep their options open until the very last minute so they can decide which event would be the best or most fun for them to attend. Listen—don’t do this. Try your best to not embody the shadier side of this Libra energy, and practice a little moderation. Right now, you’re more social than ever and you (and everyone else) are more relationship-oriented, so if you flake out on someone—whether it’s your long-term lover, your bestie, or a new friend—they take it more personally than they usually would. That might just sound like a general life lesson to follow regardless of the astro-weather, but this month’s astrology backs those sentiments up. Saturn, the planet of structure and commitment, is a major player right now, so it’s even more important than usual that you follow through with the plans you make. Just show up as a good friend and don’t leave anyone in the dust.
Life’s way less busy now that Virgo season has come and gone, so you’re not stressing out so much about work or errands or other responsibilities anymore. Libra is the sign of relationships, so it’s no mystery as to why the beginning of autumn (which always coincides with the start of Libra season) is known as “cuffing season.” Whether you’re single and ready to mingle (or not looking for love) or already in a relationship, this time of year makes it so that everything you do feels way better when you’re with someone else. This doesn’t necessarily mean a romantic partner or a fuck buddy, it could mean your bestie or a new friend—regardless, don’t count on having a great deal of alone time for the next month, because companionship in some form or another is on everyone’s mind! You’re able to focus on having a nice time with the people that matter most to you, so hit up your squad’s group chat, open up your fav dating apps, and most importantly, have fun!
Read below for your sign’s best/worst dates for Libra Season 2019! Even though we’re already a week in, take a look back at dates where important things (both good and bad) may have happened.
September 24: Important convos and exciting new connections!
September 28: Relationships of all kinds run smoothly today, and you’re feeling pretty GD optimistic, too.
October 13: One of those days where you just feel nice. You’re also pretty lucky—nothing monumental, but the kind of luck where you find an extra $10 bill in your laundry that just makes your day!
September 25: Work or other responsibilities are holding you back from having fun with your friends/partner. You’re rebellious as they come, but if you call out or skip work to have fun, there are big consequences.
October 1: Pretty big changes in your relationships—this could be falling out with a best friend, a bad fight with your significant other, or really stressful issues with coworkers. If your Aries fire is burning hot today, try and bite your tongue when people push your buttons to keep drama at a minimum.
October 7: A biiig bill comes in the mail. Yikes.
October 12: You actually have to shell out the cash today from that big bill, and it hurts.
September 28: They say “mo’ money, mo’ problems,” but that couldn’t be any further from the truth—you’re doing so well at work right now that you catch wind of a possible promotion or raise today.
October 3: Mercury enters Scorpio, so your relationships (romantic, sexual, platonic, all of ‘em) are becoming a bigger focus in your life for the next few weeks. New connections are heading your way—but Mercury does go retrograde at the end of October, so don’t count on any of them being permanent.
October 8: Venus enters Scorpio, starting off a three-week period of your love life improving a ton, and you’re getting more action, life’s feeling more romantic, and your friendships are better than ever.
October 21: Probs one of the most romantic days of the year for you. If you’re looking for the perfect night to schedule a first date, this is the one for you.
October 4: Mars enters Libra, so the next six weeks are turning up the heat at work. You’re likely to feel more stressed out at work and there’s always something to do. Remember to breathe, because your stress can turn into anxiety, feeling physically ill, or major fatigue easily right now.
October 7: Major roadblocks at work make you feel pretty defeated today. It’s only temporary, so let yourself put your work on hold for a second so you can catch your breath and jump back into it, ready to go, once you get out of this funk.
September 24: Today’s astrology has major “treat yourself” energy. Go to the bar with your friends or chill at home and smoke out your squad and enjoy the good vibes.
October 4: Mars enters Libra, so for the next six weeks your libido is sky-high. Not just your sexual libido, but your baseline energy levels and stamina are getting a major boost. Your batteries are fully charged, so have fun, get laid, and do whatever TF you want—the world is your oyster!
October 13: Seriously, this is some incredibly romantic astrology, and the potential for mind-blowing sexytimes is pretty high, too!
September 26: Today, your generally light and airy Libra season vibes get squashed down by financial issues. You’re always living in the moment, so this brief shitstorm might make you feel like the sky is falling, but today’s stormy, dark energy passes over pretty quickly.
October 1: Commitment? You hate it. Your FWB/partner wants to take things to the next level, and they’re not budging or taking “no” for an answer. You’re a master conversationalist, so try and talk it out and be reasonable—if you’re not ready, you’re just not ready, and they need to respect that!
October 3: Mercury enters Scorpio, making your love/sex life a bigger focus. It’s nice now, but since Mercury goes retrograde at the end of October, what appears to be peaches and cream right now might end up being sour milk. Live in the moment and enjoy yourself for now!
October 8: Venus enters Scorpio for three weeks, so you’re making new love connections, having great sex, and feeling more outgoing and actually leaving the house (and having a good time) for once!
October 21: You’re feeling super romantic today, to the point of being a little corny about it—not that you care, though! This is perfect for date night or meeting your next crush!
September 25 and 26: You’re trying to reach out to your friends or your boo, but nobody’s hitting you back—don’t freak out, nobody’s ghosting you, they’re probs just busy. Don’t let it make you feel too crabby!
October 4: Mars enters Libra for the next six weeks. This might be really bad, but it could be really great if you play your cards right. Basically, there’s a ton of action going on at home, or with the family. This could bring tension, heated arguments, or other drama, but if you take advantage of this transit you can use all of this kinetic energy at home to redecorate, clean house, or just go out of your way to plan to reach out to your family or invite friends over for dinner or a nice get-together!
September 24: The mood in general is pretty optimistic today. You’re feeling more outgoing and social, and attracting major good vibes and feeling pretty popular because everyone is hitting you up to hang out!
September 28: You’re still feeling pretty upbeat, but today’s astro is turning up the heat in your love/sex life most of all. Things you can expect are great (not just good) sex, fun first dates, and a higher libido to keep you going all night long.
October 13: Again, today’s astro-weather puts you in the best of moods, and you’re feeling pretty lucky—in love and in general—so enjoy your day!
September 25: Work is kicking your ass all day. You’re feeling grouchy as hell. That’s it—you’re just having a bad day.
September 26: The same as yesterday, but instead of cat napping and retreating into your room to escape your boss’ bad attitude, your phone’s blowing up with work-related drama. Put that shit on airplane mode and try to breathe!
October 3: Your social life starts picking up today, because Mercury enters Scorpio and activates your chart’s communication zone. You live to be a busybody, but instead of busting your ass at work, you’re just hanging out and making new friends all the time! FYI: Mercury goes retrograde at the end of October, so don’t expect any new connections to be life-long besties.
October 8: Venus enters Libra, meaning that you’re finding way more love connections than usual! Tinder matches/people sliding into your DM’s/late night “wyd” texts/sexy snapchats are thematic for the next few weeks.
October 20 and 21: You’re feeling pretty romantic right now, and getting more in touch with your feelings—something that your sign typically likes to avoid doing. It’s not a super crazy emotional kind of day, you’re actually really enjoying yourself, especially if you’re with someone you love (or like a LOT).
September 25: You’re facing some major blockages in (hopefully only) one of two areas of your life: your finances or your love/sex life. You’re having a hard time with some surprise expenses that show up, or you feel like you can’t easily connect with your boo, and to put it simply: it sucks. It only lasts for a day, and once this harsh hit of shitty astro-weather clears up you can organize your thoughts and feelings.
October 14: Even though you’re making tons of new friends/potential lovers, work has to come first today and it really crushes your mood.
September 28: New connections! You’re making the best first impression possible, your charisma is on fire, and you’re feeling more popular than ever! HBD!
October 4: Mars enters your sign for six weeks—even though Mars has a tough time when in Libra, it’s helping you feel recharged, motivated, and ready to get shit done!
October 13: A busy day where you’re out and about with friends, and you’re feeling like your social life is thriving. Also, there’s a chance for some extra cash headed your way!
September 25: Drama at home or with the family might shit on you day big time.
September 26: Same as the day before. Wah-wah.
October 7: Again—family drama or conflict with your roomies is making you feel pretty GD upset—don’t let it ruin your b-day month, though! It only lasts a day!
October 3: Mercury enters your sign, clearing out the brain fog you’ve had for the past few weeks—it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, though, because Mercury does go retrograde at the end of October.
October 8: Venus enters your sign, where it stays for three weeks. The planet of love, pleasure, and beauty is making you look and feel better than ever, and it’s a very welcome change from how dreary you’ve felt since Libra season began.
October 21: Riiiight before your b-day season begins, today is bringing aaaall the romance. Whether you’re single or boo’d up, this is a great day for your love life!
September 26: You’re feeling a lot of stress today, and in a major funk. You’re ready to pop off at the first person that looks at you the wrong way, but try to reel it in!
September 28: The perfect day to hang out with friends, go on a date, anything that gets you out of the house and hanging around other people, pretty much! You’re pretty optimistic and your magnetic personlity is attracting more people than ever!
October 13: You’re feeling mega optimistic today, and your good attitude is infectious, so try and plan a party or some type of get together, and spread the love!
October 1: Drama in the group text/a fight with someone in your close friend group makes today pretty shitty.
October 3: Mercury enters Scorpio, where it will also go retrograde (but you don’t have to worry about that til the end of October). This makes communicating difficult, it’s hard to get your point across, and you’re feeling a general sense of confusion/foggy headedness.
October 3: Mercury enters Scorpio, turning down the pressure at work and making your social life poppin’ again! JSYK, it goes retrograde at the very end of October, so if any minor beef is brewing up now, you can bet on it being at its very worst come Halloween.
October 12: This could be really great or really bad. Uranus, planet of surprises, has a wild connection with Venus, planet of love, so your relationships are getting stirred TF up today. If you’re single, someone might sweep you off your feet and make you fall in love (or maybe you’re just impressed with how hot/interesting they are) instantly… or you could have a big blowout argument with a friend or your crush. If you’re in a relationship, this could be an amazing day where you and your boo have a blast together, or it could, again, be a big ol’ fight.
October 21: You’re feeling incredibly emotional today, but not in a bad way! You’re pretty cold (no shade) and like to keep your feelings locked up tight, but today you’re able and willing to share them with anybody who’s willing to listen! It’s the perfect day to tell someone you love just how much you love them.
September 26: Some bad news comes your way at work—not saying you’re getting fired or anything that crazy, but an office rumor about someone (or maybe even you) throws you for a loop and really disrupts your day.
October 7: Same deal as September 26—don’t panic, the drama only lasts for a day!
September 28: Today is the best day of all Libra season for you to make new friends, and you’re connecting with some really fascinating new faces that you want to add to your squad immediately!
October 13: Try and plan a trip with your friends today—even if it’s just a drive down to the beach for the day, getting away from your regular day-to-day life is the best way to spend your day.
October 7: Some news about work comes your way while you’re at home, and it fucks with you, big time. Maybe you’re getting reprimanded by your boss, or some nasty gossip about you comes around—whatever it is, you’re not happy about it.
September 28: Surprise! You’re getting a bonus or a random gift, and it really makes your day.
October 3: Mercury enters Scorpio, where it stays for a few weeks, putting you in a more optimistic, uplifted mood. Just a heads up, Mercury goes retrograde here at the end of October!
October 8: Venus enters Scorpio, putting you in an even better mood! Libra season isn’t the most fun for your sign, but Venus chilling in Scorpio for the next few weeks really helps you out.
October 13: Remember that extra income from September 28? Well, today you have a major deja vu moment, because you’re getting another little surprise!
October 7: There’s some friend drama going on, and you might have to cut someone off because of how bad it gets!
