Love is in the air, as the October Horoscopes 2016 theme focuses more strongly than usual on relationships and fair play. Venus always calls the shots in October, but this year she is aided and abetted by King of the Gods, Jupiter, hanging out with her in her sign of Libra. They want to see a more level playing field in the world, where the spoils are more evenly divided and everyone is treated more fairly.
This October is a time where co-operation and negotiation gains you better outcomes than conflict and power plays. Above all, Venus and Jupiter want you to keep things nice!
Powerful, lion-headed Goddess Sekhmet enters the sign on October 8, in the company of the planet Mercury. This will be a great help in getting your point of view across.
Saturn the Lord of Karma, makes his presence felt towards the middle of October 2016 – when any sneaky moves that have been made under cover are likely to be exposed. Saturn is keeping company with the asteroid Merlin at the time, so the outcomes could be purely magical!
The Full Moon on October 15/16 will be challenging, where you will find it hard to find a win-win solution to the conflict between getting what you want and being sensitive to the needs of significant others.
With Uranus and Eris (Goddess of Strife and Discord), flanking the Moon, emotions are bound to erupt and results will be unpredictable.
The asteroid Mnemosyne hovers close by, so memories from the past and even themes from their mythical stories will play their part. Mars will be merging energy with Pluto as well, so power struggles will be on the cards, but you will have the get up and go to take the positive option of working hard and making things go your way.
October Horoscope 2016 – All 12 Zodiac Signs
It’s time to put relationship back to the top of your Aries action list and make a brand new start in some way! Love is always such a two-edged sword for you. It’s tough for Aries to determine how to balance your need for independence and to do things exactly the way you want.
Oh, and trying to balance all this with your passionate nature and need to express it through love and sex! But, opportunities will abound during October to meet someone new, or maybe even towards the end of the month to reconcile with someone from the past.
Those Aries in happy unions are likely to progress to a new stage of couple-hood, moving in together, spending more time together on a long overseas holiday or starting a family or joint project together.
Unhappy partnerships will become unbearable and unexpected outbursts and incidents may result in very messy partings and settlement actions, where much which is better left in private is exposed for scrutiny and judgment by a wider audience.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Howlite is a good healing crystal to help an Aries co-operate with others, it is calming to the personality bringing more peace to your surroundings and helping you to find the middle ground between your self-centered needs and compromises which are not in your best interests.
What Taurus does on a daily basis will be what brings the most joy and satisfaction into your life this month! So, it stands to reason that there have been some major changes this month, as Jupiter begins his 12 yearly stint through this area of your life.
Perhaps you will be changing jobs, starting your own business or working from home. The change may have been driven by unusual and unsettling inner feelings which you found hard to put into words. It is being driven by your psyche to help you find your path though life as you struggle to express your creativity in a way that is more in alignment with your core being.
Taking up studies of astrology or psychology to help Taurus understand yourself at a deep level may help, as you gain security and stability when you have something practical you can do. Additionally, Taurus may feel driven to start a new healthy eating or exercise plan or maybe to decide on a new pet to share your life on a daily basis.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Keeping a piece of Rutilated Quartz with you at all times will remind you of your spiritual self and bring deep insights into what it is you are finding hard to trust.
Changes are afoot around the opportunities you have for experiencing pleasure in your life. It may be through children in many different ways, there may be a baby born into your family group or news of a pregnancy bringing happiness for the future. However, it is just as likely that your own inner child will be awakened – invigorating your creative juices, and stirring the active Gemini imagination.
Expect insightful intuition just before the Full Moon, when Hekate Goddess of the Crossroads enters your sign. The way forward becomes more clear.
Current friends or groups you are involved with are likely to change suddenly, as you find they are no longer a good fit and strike a discordant note in your soul. A new lover may even be on the cards as home truths about your relationship sink in, and you realize the role the world sees you in may not be one that serves your true purpose! It starts Gemini analyzing what kind of home will bring you the emotional security and stability you really deserve.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Serpentine would be an excellent healing stone to sit with in your hand to balance you, as you do this.
Positive energy comes to the area you are most strongly drawn to by zodiac sign, all is fine on the home front! Cancer’s will likely receive happy news about one of your nearest and dearest, or be able to undertake a project to beautify your home environment in some way. If you are building a new home or wanting to move into a new one, significant milestones will be reached, maybe even getting your finances approved so progress can be made.
Cancer, be on the lookout. There will be a bit of a tug of war around the time of the Full Moon when unexpected issues relating to your career or work projects may distract you from focusing on where your think your heart lies. Your job and the kind of activities you perform on a daily basis may start to awaken you to how you have developed limiting beliefs in the past about how free you are to expand your education. This now prevents you from really thinking for yourself and using your intellect to the extent you are truly capable of.
The world could be your oyster if you, sensitive and shy Cancer, just believed it could!
Healing Crystals & Stones: Ruby is the right healing stone to propel you forward to accepting and achieving your ambitions.
Wow, Leo! You are moving with the times, finding a new stage to strut your stuff! From October 8, your ruler (the Sun) joins Jupiter in Libra. Empowered further by Sekhmet (another Lion archetype) and Mercury who joins in, Leo’s means of communication is enhanced through using the internet. NOW is the time to roar out your messages with new websites, videos and blogs! This can bring you much success by integrating artistic beauty and creativity into information which is appealing to the eye as well as the mind.
Libra, zodiac sign of partnerships and mutual co-operation, sits in this area of technology and communication for Leos, ruled naturally by Mercury through his sign of Gemini and by tradition also associated with Goddess energy. So business associations between women and involving the divine feminine, can be most successful for you at this time.
Communications and technology will possibly continue to experience glitches and hold ups until Mercury leaves its retrograde shadow on October 6. Around the time of the Full Moon there could be unexpected issues and problems around publishing and legal matters, so it will pay Leos to be especially careful around copyright and royalties as well as differences arising between different countries and time zones.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Sunny Topaz crystals will help you develop creative potential and overcome limitations in gaining the recognition you crave.
Fortunes have been subject to constant change over the last few years with impacts on Virgo finances, assets and living arrangements, however with the changing sign of Jupiter moving into Libra this is likely to show an improving trend. Clarity around Virgo’s living arrangements will throw light on the relationships and partnerships which have been involved and it is time to view yourself and your achievements in a more positive light rather than over analyze them.
Virgo talents and abilities will be recognized during October with some kind of improved remuneration. There is a possibility of a solution from an unexpected source which may have connections to the past, this will be in the form of a windfall, gift or new income source around the time of the Full Moon.
Virgo’s natural self-criticism can leave you with low self-esteem and deep seated emotional stress. This crystal boosts awareness of your positive qualities and helps you see your true self-worth. It assists you in moving beyond discussing and dissecting your emotions to actually feeling them, and enhances your ability to express what you feel from your heart rather than from your mind.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Moss Agate is the perfect crystal to help bring in material success with your New Moon rituals or affirmations – which helps you work intuitively with the land.
You are feeling pretty good about the way the world sees you at the moment, recent changes you have made to the way you are looking after your appearance or your image are really starting to pay off. Keep up the good work, Libra!
The stars are really well aligned with Libra’s Sun this month, so it is easy to expand out into the world and make your desires materialize. Someone, or a situation that brings back memories from your past, is likely to reappear in your life unexpectedly, later in the month, causing disruptions in your love life. But you are more powerful now and better able to deal with this to your advantage.
Be careful, Libra. Focus on exactly what and how you communicate around the time of the Full Moon, past issues with siblings or other females could return to bite you and actions you feel driven to take around your home and family could result in ego struggles. It all centers back onto how well you have handled your relationships previously and what you need to change about this in the future to ensure your needs are better met.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Mangano Calcite or Pink Carnelian is the perfect crystal to wear or hold in your hand as you sleep, to help you be more loving to yourself and others, overcoming your need for perfection.
What you are putting you energy into at the moment will not be ready to see the light of day for a few weeks yet, but it will all be worth it in the end, regardless of how it seems to be disrupting your daily routines, and make you feel life is all about looking after the needs of others. Scorpio’s secretive nature makes it easy for you to hold your cards close to your chest for the time being and keep it confidential.
Around October 8 you will get to the bottom of an issue that has been bothering you, around a certain group of friends or association that you have been involved with. The truth will come out so you can decide the best path forward for you in the future. Be careful how you react, it will be better to deal with it fairly and graciously, not burning your bridges.
Scorpios are especially sensitive around issues involving women’s rights at the time of the Full Moon, and may not be able to hold back from trying to take control of a certain situation, which you believe is being dealt with unjustly.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Rhodochrosite would be an excellent gemstone to have close by, to help you assimilate painful feelings, as well as heal repressed emotions this brings up from the past, around how you expressed yourself creatively.
This month will be quite magical for you! From the people who matter to you to the like-minded groups you associate with, all will be able to see the truth and reality in what you believe in and have taken a stand about in the past.
Situations around home and family, which have been confused and sensitive for you, and have tended to deplete your energy and drive in the past, will be clarified. This puts Sagittarius in the driver’s seat and ready to move into the kind of role you have always dreamed about – where your talents and abilities are used to the full! In particular, those relating to the power of intuition and the feminine.
Sagittarius will make new connections, even consider new partnerships, within the peoples who share your values and beliefs. These possibilities occur as your ruler Jupiter stretches your influence in this area of life.
Your friends and social life will give Sagittarius much needed support around the Full Moon, when unexpected issues and conflict could arise around children and love interests. Old friendships are also likely to become more important and may be renewed at this time.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Apophyllite, your Moon stone, will guide you to find balance between the spiritual and material worlds, recognizing your true self and becoming more comfortable within your body.
Changes are occurring in the way others see you – especially from the point of view of where they see you positioned in the world. Capricorn wants to be taken seriously and hates to be thought of as a lightweight, so this is important for you.
Things you are working on are only just beginning to emerge from behind the scenes and the reality of certain stands you have taken, and communications you have made in the past will emerge towards the middle of the month.
Capricorn’s role in the world is likely expand markedly towards the end of the month, through a career change, new job, promotion or special project that comes your way, justifying the hard work you have been putting in and the connections you have been making with the right people. This may cause some conflicts or disruptions on the home front, even involving relocating in some manner, so you may need to consider the impact of your success on those you love, and help them see the benefits of the unexpected changes to their lives.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Wearing Labradorite gemstones can help Capricorn’s inner brightness shine through your rather conventional appearance and style. Its energy will help you feel more comfortable with your sense of duty and destiny and enable you to put this to good use.
Don’t be scared to think big in October as it is definitely time to expand your horizons and move out of your comfort zone!
Outstanding legal matters are likely to be resolved justly for Aquarius, especially around property, inheritances or investments. This is, of course, assuming that you have been squeaky clean in what you are trying to achieve.
Overseas travel and adventures of all kinds are on the cards, it is also a good time to launch a new website or internet project of any kind. This holds true for publishing or beginning that book you were always going to write as well.
The Aquarius head is likely to be quite disorganized, thinking about the pros and cons of the exciting opportunities and potential that the future holds.
Changes are likely within the friends you spend your time with, or associations you belong to and support, as you face the truth about what you believed they really stood for in the past and see more clearly whether this serves your own onward journey through life.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Fluorite would be a great gemstone to help you balance the influence of the Uranian disruption and bring the structure and stability that your other ruler, Saturn, craves.
The focus is on benefits you will obtain through money or other resources that becomes available to you through a relationship in some way.
It will be the start of a new cycle where it is OK to make or save money from property and investments towards your future. Will it be an inheritance or something material your present? Perhaps a past significant other has brought abundance to the table that you can make use of. Maybe a new business partner or alliance helps boost finances. It could be a marriage settlement or it simply might be a good time to get a bank loan or mortgage.
This all may not sit very comfortably with what Pisces considers your “value system”. Pisces could find these feelings rather discordant and unexpected, but the position of the Moons Nodes suggest that it is all happening in accordance with your life plan. Certain realities around your current work or status in the world have uncovered this opportunity and cleared the decks in order for it to happen, so don’t waste it!
Dive in! The water’s just fine!
Healing Crystals & Stones: Working with powerful healing stone Amethyst will help you bridge the material world of everyday life and the imaginative mystical world of spirit, cleansing your energy of the emanations you pick up from others and the need to save others at expense to yourself.
