What’s written in the stars this month? October has some good vibes in store…
There are some fabulous moments to enjoy this month as Jupiter, Venus and Mars meet in the Virgo constellation (felt most on the 10th and 25th!); a pure, refined wholesome energy is blooming into the universe. It’s an auspicious time to wear earthy colours and a neutral palette (if you’re looking for an extra boost of luck!) and the Sun’s in the balanced sign of the Scales, so celebrate your lovely Libra friends in style.

Think harmony in your one-to-ones and practice a bit of patience! It’s the best month of a two-year stretch for you to crank it up at the gym Aries, review your health and go to the doctor for a check-up if there are any niggles – you hate to be slowed down and prevention is better than cure. You can really align the physical and inner workings of the body so use October to set your wheels in motion!
TAURUS: 20 April – 20 May

All will be well and resume normal functioning from the 10th, besides, haven’t you noticed? You’re in the mood to have fun! The summer sun may be setting but your good times are still rolling Miss Taurus, in fact you’re only just getting started. Your creativity is at an all time high (not to mention your sex appeal…) – Venus is sliding very merrily into your relationship zone and you can expect some truly fabulous moments this month.

A full moon falls in your sign and your unique talents are clear for all to see – pat on the back for your latest achievements.
GEMINI: 21 May – 20 June
With your ruler Mercury retrograding a little longer in fellow air sign Libra, you can count on being a bit off balance until the 10th (especially when it comes to matters of the heart!). Rest assured that miscommunications with lovers will be smoothed out, and that’s just dandy, as you’re getting into the mindset of taking relationships a lot more seriously now… If you’ve been pining for the perfect love they could enter over the next couple of years (or you could feel more inclined to commit!), keep your eyes peeled and create your partner wish-list now. Home and family is are areas that are really flourishing for you Gemini – in the next twelve months your abode is going to have a boost of positivity in one way, shape or form, and this month can set off on the right foot by beautifying and doing a bit of handy work (come on, it’s not so hard!).

Keep the door open to higher learning – if you need to brush up on an area of study seize the day! Buy a series of books (or listen to that language tape) and welcome that stream of information. You could be in for a change of career or altered direction over the coming years and you’ll want to be prepared – now you’re in the throws of reviewing what that path might look like – it may be a foggy picture but you can always use meditation to clear the way and focus in on your dreams…

AQUARIUS: 20 January – 18 February
Dear Aquarius, you’re really going to see the fruits of your labour pay off this month and can even give a gentle nudge(or solid push!) in the right direction. Luck favours the brave on the 25th and for you this relates to outside income – an influx of money or power from an external source. There may have been a touch of fog around “what’s mine, what’s yours and what’s theirs” lately; these matters could still be murky but will grow clearer bit by bit. It’s an outstanding time for learning Aqua babe – review and rethink what you want to know and use the month of October to educate yourself – doesn’t have to be heavy, just those outstanding bits of data you want locked down in the memory banks. Presto.
PISCES: 19 February – 20 March
Love, love, love. Assume your relationships will take up the majority of your energies this October Miss Pisces, but also tune into that more structured vibe at work (it’s definitely here to stay!). There are blissful times to be had with your significant other now – be it your lover, your best friend or important figures in your life – enjoy your one-on-ones. Partnership and harmonious outcomes might be all you can focus on, which could be lovely or a little overwhelming depending on how you guide your energies. Remember, it’s not your place to please everyone, all the time. You’re in the mood to go deep which could be sexy and steamy – it could also be pretty intense and get others a bit too hot under the collar! Take a step back and enjoy the good times – when in doubt throw in a measure of equilibrium.
