October Horoscope 2018 – Overview
Since mid-September, we’ve been basking in the harmonious vibes of Libra. Our relationships and projects are put to the test to ensure everything returns to a state of balance. We continue the quest for personal peace at the beginning of October 2018.
Friday, October 5th, Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio and remains so until November 16th. During this time, we’ll review our past and reassess what we value. It’s all so we can better shape the future. Now is the time to keep a firm focus on self-improvement and personal growth. Developing a new love or money matters should take center stage at this time.
The new moon on October 8th may prove a tempting time to launch new projects. It’s a great time to draw up plans for our personal growth. October 9th, Mercury enters Scorpio, where the energies encourage us to explore our shadow nature. We must learn to embrace what we are afraid of just as we cling to what we wish to accomplish. We’ll have the ability to see through the subtleties of conversation when we’re talking with others.
The Sun moves from Libra into Scorpio on the 23rd. The remainder of the month it does well to keep Scorpio’s motto in mind, “I desire.” Indeed, it’s a great time to pursue our short-term goals and highest aims. Then, on the 24th, the Moon moves into Taurus. We’ll crave comfort in the arms of a lover provides, or we’ll seek to comfort ourselves with “comfort foods,” a warm fuzzy blanket, and binge watching our favorite show on Netflix!
The same day, Mercury moves through Sagittarius. It means we’ll demonstrate a clash between our what we say and what we do. Watch out for loss of control during communications. Others might not be truthful with us now.

The first week of October 2018 brings easy communications. It serves to extend as the source of feel-good vibes.
In romance, Aries faces a mini-marathon of physical activity, especially on the 4th and 5th! Money matters become secondary in importance.

October 10th, Mercury enters Scorpio. It brings a day of many demands, all which leaves Aries stressing. It’s time to resist the urge to act out or to defy authority, even when you are in the right.

With Venus as your ruling planet, it’s best for Taureans to concentrate on day-to-day tasks: It’s pretty easy to get swept up in a wild romance. The good news is if Taurus is already in a relationship, all the days of October remain pretty harmonious. The same goes for business partnerships. Within social circles, Taurus might end up feeling like the Queen of the Ball.
October 1 is an excellent day for focusing on money-making endeavors. If you’re thinking of launching a business, starting out on the first gets you off the ground with the cosmos backing your efforts. October 4th comes with a day that offers promising and unexpected opportunities in both business and love. Use these energetic “up” period to make the most of things. A romantic getaway planned for the first weekend in October proves successful.
In matters of personal money and romance, Taurus doesn’t have to overcome inertia when the New Moon arrives on the 8th. Watch out for the 10th where someone’s competitiveness might get you irritated enough to see red Taurus. It’s a high-stress day, but Taurus is not one to cave easily. The 11th is a better day, and 12th through the 15th are big days for romance. Whether looking for love or already in love, Taurus is basking in the soft and fuzzy vibes.
The 17th-19th has Taurus buzzing around the social circle. Whether hosting quaint get-togethers at home or out on the town, Taurus draws attention to themselves with all that natural charismatic, down-to-earth charm. The week of the 21st-27th will have Taurus thinking it’s Ground Hog’s Day all over again: It’s another week with lots of lovin’ and attention from the crowd.
From the 24th’s Full Moon until the 26th, Taurus is lime-lighting it. The 27th-29 brings a focus back onto practical matters like money. This Halloween Taurus is a wee bit on the stressed side: It’s just their natural instincts sensing the energetic change the seasonal shift causes on the final harvest.
Healing Crystals and Stones: If Taurus feels their sense of balance off this month, Selenite can help restore internal and emotional harmony.

The first week of October, Capricorn breezes through work tasks and, as a leader, they’ll excel at work. But, home life, love, and money are far more complicated matters. From October 5th until the 16th of next month, Venus goes retrograde. The planet rules of aesthetics, money, and love, all of which are areas Capricorn will want to review.
A New Moon on the 8th promises fresh starts in creative pursuits, study, and career. Now is a time to tap into that creative muse. Capricorn might find great pleasure in working with a variety of artistic mediums now. Otherwise, creative energies can be put to best use at work while engaging in collaborative efforts.

The retrograde of the planet of love from October 6 until the middle of the following month, Aquarius will want to examine each area of their life. It’s time to test one’s level of satisfaction with work, love, and personal pursuits. But, if Aquarius identifies areas in which one lacks true happiness, it’s a time to plan restorative measures, not implement them. This gives Aquarius a full six weeks to incubate on ideas before acting.
If Aquarius is planning any changes as far as the cosmetics, they wear, or the hairstyle they have, it’s better to do so in November. It will help in avoiding bad hairstyle choices, or it will prevent Aquarius from buying makeup that clashes with their wardrobe.
Shopping and finding terrific deals are an endeavor Aquarius can enjoy the first half of the month. Meditation helps the Aquarian personality remain grounded and focused. If new to meditation, a long drive through New England to view the leaves changing color is just like driving through an autumnal land of wonder.
Use the third week of October to declutter your work desk or to rearrange your furnishings in the home. A pre-winter clean out of your closets will give Aquarius more room to hide all those Christmas gifts!
Peace of mind is easy to establish when the Sun is in Libra. Aquarius would do well to use this time of reflection as a period of rest. Once the Sun moves into Scorpio, rapid growth, expansion, and desires are November’s highlights. Now’s the time to bank some excess energy. It will help ready Capricorn for tackling work and love-related issues head-on once the energetic opportunity arises.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Apatite will help Aquarius keep their nose to the grindstone and their eye on important short and long-term goals in October.

In early October, Venus retrograde makes Pisces’ want to run from a bland romance. It’s best to avoid making any quick or permanent decisions until mid-November. Instead, rethink the relationship and create an “out” plan.
The New Moon promises excellent support for partnerships and business. It’s a day of fresh starts, so don’t be surprised if a romantic connection from your past resurrects itself this week. Be careful not to jump in with both feet.
While it might be tempting to give that old fling a second go at it, you might be moving too fast. Make sure you’re not falling for the honeymoon phase accompanying a resurrected love connection. You don’t want to finish off the rest of the month miserable because you’ve stripped off the rose-colored glasses and found you’ve made a relationship blunder!
Put it into action on the 17th of November if still feeling the same way about the situation. Use the six-week retrograde period to reflect on the issue at hand. See October as a month to cleanse away negative emotions. It’s time to get back on track by taking the first step of identifying precisely what you don’t want in your life anymore.
The last two weeks of the month prove challenging for introverted Pisces to communicate with others. The energies will call you to come out of your hiding place and into the limelight. Use the time to get used to the chance to speak what is really on your mind.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Labradorite will keep Pisces’ focused and constructive. It will also help them tap into the higher consciousness through dream messages.
