Monthly Overview, All Signs
October will be a month in which fulfillment in one form or another is being offered to you: will you recognize it or accept it? That will be up to you. It may depend on whether you are ready and willing for emotional or spiritual growth, with its benefits and its costs. Regardless, emotions are at high tide right now: give and accept love on a new level and open your mind to what is around you. October will be a month to connect to others, forgive them when you need to, listen to them, embrace them. Kindness to others will come back to yourself. Do not ignore your creative side this month: it will also be at a peak and will be very rewarding to you, if you exercise and engage it.
For all the positivity emanating from the Ace of Cups, the reversed Four of Wands indicates that tension and uncertainty will accompany your emotional and creative highs this month. You may find yourself in a time of transition or instability. Beware those you care about who may be in it only for the short-term or for what they can get from a relationship with you. Commit fully to your feelings for others and for your own endeavors, but be cautious, too, in what and to whom you devote yourself.
October brings an opportunity for you to build on your confidence, exuberance, and determination in pursuing the things you desire. You may want to watch out that you don’t act too hastily or express sentiments that can’t be unsaid; and you may want to harness your enthusiasm for your ideas: slow down, think them through, make sure they make sense. Your ideas will be the better for it. Be realistic in how you approach new and old endeavors this month: calculated risk and prudence will be your friends as you move towards Halloween.

Specialized Fortunes by Astrological Sign:
Libra (September 23 – October 22): This month, you’re brimming with inspiration and possibility. Around the middle of the month might be a good time for some travel: dreaming about it before hand will stoke your creativity and your mood. Watch out for jealousy, arguments, and drama towards the end of the month: you really don’t need or want any part of that negativity right now.
Being complimentary towards others this month is the right thing to do, but honest compliments will also redound in your favor right now. Speak truthfully, cautiously— but speak. Halloween at the end of the month beckons you to explore all your identities: who you’ve been, who you are, who you want to be; explore all of them, be daring. Between your birthday and Halloween lies a chance to redefine your spirit. Tarot: The Magician. Aura: Tourmaline. Spirit Animal: Black cat. Lucky Numbers: 2, 10,18, 31, 43, 65.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): If you’re considering a change of path, this month gives you the guts to reinvent yourself. Putting yourself forward or embracing change becomes easier around the 20th; be brave and listen to your intuitions. You’ve learned a lot about wearing your heart on your sleeve in the past few years but now is the time to apply those lessons and share your emotions and gifts with the world and those you love. Towards the end of the month, beware the temptation to speak hastily, especially on social media. Let wisdom be your guide. Tarot: Two of Swords. Aura: Absinthe Green. Spirit Animal: Egret. Lucky Numbers: 7, 8, 11, 34, 46, 57.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): You may need to deal with disapproval around the time of the new moon. It’s important to listen but if you know you are in the right, stand your ground and speak diplomatically to convince them. Towards the end of the month, beware of your own jealousies. If you aren’t secure in your love life, relationships, or job, you may be feeling threatened by someone else’s happiness or success. Look in the mirror and look at the reasons before you lash out. Tap into your creativity this month: it is a more potent tool than you realize. Tarot: Judgment, Reversed. Aura: Vermilion. Spirit Animal: Ram. Lucky Numbers: 6, 7, 12, 27, 41, 43.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): A money or material concern could arise around the time of the new moon. It won’t look or sound simple, but it really will be. Don’t let other people’s opinions muddy the mental waters for you; you’ve got this. In business, you may come across a financial backer who has not only funds but a common sense stability to add to your current project. If you have an idea, make it into reality. This is the month to trust your instincts; combined with prudence and caution, they won’t steer you awry. Tarot: Page of Pentacles. Aura: Mint Green. Spirit Animal: Octopus. Lucky Numbers: 6, 12, 13, 27, 37, 50.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): This month is a great time to venture into typically tricky territory in a relationship, for coming to agreements regarding money and sharing the workload, for gaining support, and for better understanding and enjoying the deeper side of interactions. This can also be a time for thoroughly enjoying an exciting, consuming project. Your creativity is at a high beginning around the 20th: it will be up to you to maximize and sustain it. The full moon brings charged energy related to home or family; there can be conversations and memories that motivate you to make changes and improvements. An unexpected trip down memory lane may be in focus for some of you. Tarot: Five of Cups. Aura: Mahogany. Spirit Animal: Jackrabbit. Lucky Numbers: 3, 11, 18, 26, 39, 57.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): October may not be the most energetic month. You’ve been working hard lately and your body needs time to refuel. Spend some quiet time at home. Curl up and let your mind travel where it may. Even though your body slows, your mind is more active than ever. You may come to a new understanding of a matter from the past related to love or pleasure. You’re in great shape for returning to an old hobby or picking up a relationship where you left off, especially after the full moon. Tarot: Strength. Aura: Platinum. Spirit Animal: Newt. Lucky Numbers: 9, 14, 18, 57, 58, 66.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Around the time of the full moon, someone may have a mistaken impression of you, positively or negatively. Act with integrity to allow your true self to be revealed. Money affairs look quite beneficial around the latter part of the month. In general, people this month may look at you as though you are gullible or may doubt your judgment. You have ideas and energy to spare: just be patient and think everything through fully. Tarot: Four of Swords. Aura: Light Coral. Spirit Animal: Oriole. Lucky Numbers: 1, 15, 21, 34, 48, 69.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Life should simply for you a bit, Taurus, roughly around the fifth of the month. The full moon will bring memories of powerful love: those that have been, those that may be. Remember to stay connected to good memories of stable friendships and family relationships: these will keep you grounded. You will find yourself feeling stymied and impatient during the middle of the month. Perk up, breathe through these moments, and remember to have fun, even if you’re not feeling like it. Tarot: The Chariot. Aura: Maroon. Spirit Animal: Wolf Spider. Lucky Numbers: 8, 11, 39, 41, 48, 58.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): October is the time to rekindle an old friendship. No matter what you’re assigned to do at work in the near-term, there’s no doubt that you’ll enjoy it. You may enjoy it so much, in fact, that your self-confidence grows as much as your reputation for being able to do not just your own job, but that of at least two others. Your one warning: take caution to remain humble in light of your successes. In spiritual matters, getting where you should be is only half as far as getting there and getting back again. Tarot: The World. Aura: Goldenrod. Spirit Animal: Mandrill. Lucky Numbers: 1, 18, 21, 29, 33, 56.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): This is the month to be imaginative and unafraid to try something new, especially if it will catch the attention of your higher-ups. Your rewards may arrive quite quickly but a major change in your routine could accompany them. No matter how sociable you are, then, don’t be surprised if you choose to spend time alone now – much to the disappointment of your friends. Explain to them that you need some time alone to think a certain matter through. The new moon may be the right time to schedule that ‘state of the relationship’ meeting you’ve been delaying. Tarot: Judgement. Aura: Mango. Spirit Animal: Caterpillar. Lucky Numbers: 8, 14, 15, 25, 26, 47.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Over the coming weeks, if you spend some time alone, you’ll be able to find yourself, in the truest sense. Does that mean that you’ll be able to become everything you’ve ever wanted to be? Well, it might—but that’s a long road, and at the very least, you can relax knowing the right path is very near. Keep your eyes open to possibilities even if they don’t seem to be just right at first. The only outcome you need fear is if you ignore your own instincts. Tarot card: The Page of Cups. Aura: Indigo. Spirit Animal: Otter. Lucky Numbers: 4, 7, 12, 26, 38, 42.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): The falsehoods you believe now will be revealed around the time of the new moon. Relish the transitions in your future: they will come anyway. New insights into old relationships can come to you. After the 13th, you’re in an especially good position to restore balance to your daily life and relationships. Although at times you may feel as if you’re a pawn of the fates, there’s really nothing for you to worry about in the weeks ahead. Tarot: Five of Swords (reversed). Aura: Titian Red. Spirit Animal: Coati. Lucky Numbers: 6, 18, 20, 29, 36, 48.
Namaste. Bless. May fortune smile upon you and yours.
And Happy Halloween.
