MONTH OF October

In it to win it! This year’s Libra season charges out of the gate at an especially frisky pace as the Sun soars through your sign until October 22, joined by activator Mars, the planet of energy and drive, which is making its biennial blast through Libra until October 30.

The balance your sign is forever seeking may be in short supply as the Sun and Mars keep your schedule action-packed. You’re the spotlight’s favorite target now, so shamelessly self-promote! The October 6 Libra new moon could be a day when fortune and favor smile upon you—and you only get one of these per year. This October, your trailblazing initiatives could start a huge buzz.

But go easy on ‘em, Libra. Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, is retrograde in YOUR sign until October 18. Hold off on any major rollouts or announcements until the second half of the month if you can. With an Aries full moon illuminating your partnership house, a surprise opportunity to sign on the dotted line could arrive—and you’ll be glad you waited! New and better options could present themselves, especially when the Sun moves into Scorpio and your productive second house for a month on October 22.

Since mid-August, all five of the slow-moving outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) have been retrograde. You’ve been sent back to the drawing board a few times, or perhaps stepped back from a situation that didn’t materialize quite as expected. Now these planets start to turn direct (forward): Pluto on October 6, Saturn on October 10, Mercury and Jupiter on October 18. As they do, prepare for momentum to resume around a passion project or an initiative with your stamp on it.

The Sun is in Libra until October 22

Happy birthday season, Libra! The Sun is making its annual voyage through your sign until October 22, handing you the talking stick and inviting you to prioritize your own needs and desires. With el Sol in your first house of image and assertiveness, you’ve got a little extra swagger at your disposal. Use that mojo to propel your own goals now. And with magnetic Mars ramping up your charisma and confidence, your sex appeal is off the charts!

Great as that sounds, hosting Mars in your sign isn’t always a cakewalk, especially since the warclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” rior planet is in weakened “detriment” (https://astrostyle.com/the-essential-dignities-of-planets-exalted-detriment-domicile-and-fall/) while visiting peaceful Libra. The ramped-up red planet can send you into overdrive, making you anxious or causing you to come on way too strong. A pinch of Libra magic will do the trick now, thanks. But DO make a point of being direct when you’re upset or have unmet needs, especially since expressive Mercury is retrograde in Libra until October 18. People can’t read your mind—nor will they pick up on vague or passive-aggressive clues. As uncomfortable as it can be to fight through your innate politeness, others will actually appreciate you being straight-up with them.

The October 6 Libra new moon is your personal new year

Ready for a fresh start? The October 6 Libra new moon, your “personal new year.” It’s a day to set intentions for the coming six months and to take a bold step forward on your path. What personal goal would you like to achieve before 2021 closes out? Connect and commit to that today; these me-first moonbeams have your back! Efforts you start could unfold between now and the Libra full moon on April 16, 2022. Even better? Mojo boosting Mars will be exactly conjunct the new moon, catalyzing your efforts even more. With six planets in air signs today, your big ideas could attract attention and travel far!

Family and home take a turn for the better on October 6, when karmic Pluto ends a five-month retrograde through Capricorn and your domestic fourth house. Since April 27, you’ve been navigating intense moods and what felt like a series of emotional earthquakes, especially in your household. Power dynamics with a female relative in particular may have been volatile, with seething resentment or outright aggression welling up from the depths.

Maybe your thoughts turned to your ancestors, with dreams about departed loved ones so vivid that they felt like a visitation. Old family patterns and baggage could have surfaced, making this a productive (if painful) time to process the past and untangle those knots. If you’re a parent, you may have struggled with separation issues between yourself and a child—either feeling smothered by too much closeness or fearful when they pulled away.

That begins to change on October 6 once Pluto resumes forward motion, helping you pierce the veil of confusion. You’ll be better able to connect the dots and address household conflict at the root, and to let your loved ones be individuated people as you figure out a healthy level of bonding. If the energy in your house feels off, you might try some Feng Shui techniques, starting with a spacclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” e clearing and deep cleaning.

Since May 23, the heavy-handed taskmaster has left zero room for error, forcing you to make mature romantic choices—and do the hard work required to have lasting love.

Perhaps you wrote an ex off too quickly and had to go back and truly create closure with them. An old flame may have resurfaced. Issues you swept aside with a partner could no longer be ignored. Saturn rules estrangement and distance; some Libras took a timeout to really heal your heart and evaluate your feelings. Others were just separated by actual geography—which, in a silver lining move, may have given you a little bit of the personal space you crave.

As Saturn powers forward in Aquarius between now and March 2023, your love life could start to slowly but steadily progress. You’ve hosted Saturn here since March 2020, and in that time, you’ve grown a lot, at times through hard-won lessons. Apply what you’ve learned to create lasting love that’s grounded in terra firma.

Calling all Libra artists, makers and performers! The fifth house also rules creativity, and status-driven Saturn here could take you to prominence. Working with an agent or seasoned pro could open bigger opportunities. As Saturn turns direct, talk to industry reps who have a healthy network of connections and years of expertise under their Hermes belts. You never know where they can take your brilliant ideas!

Jupiter and Mercury retrograde both end on October 18

Sweet relief! On October 18, communication planet Mercury lifts its gag order as it turns direct (forward) after three choppy retrograde weeks in YOUR sign. If you’ve felt misunderstood or thwarted in your quest, or you’ve been dealing with technology breakdowns at every turn, get ready for thclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” at to clear up.

And you’ll have no trouble voicing your opinions anymore either, as outspoken Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde through Aquarius and your fifth house of passion and self-expression. Now that the retrograde, which began June 20, is over, the world had better prepare for some full-frontal Libra! A stalled love affair could pick up speed, or if you’ve been caught in a bad romance, you’ll find the confidence to call it off. Has the muse gone missing? She’s back! If you’re a performer or an artist, get ready to take the stage again.

Expansive Jupiter is making a long visit to Aquarius from December 19, 2020, until December 28, 2021. This once-every-12-years visit from the planet of luck inspires you to stretch far out of your comfort zone and take a risk. Your original ideas may have attracted fame and attention as you courageously stepped into the spotlight. Jupiter’s mission is to open you up to a more heart-centered way of life, driven by desire and your deepest truths.

This is alsoclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” an auspicious year for love—though more of the butterflies-in-the-stomach, romantic variety than the put-a-ring-on-it kind. With action planet Mars making an energetic The Aries full moon on October 20 powers up partnerships

Harmony and balance (your Libra watchwords) return on October 20, when the year’s only Aries full moon beams into your seventh house of relationships. A key partnership comes under the microscope now. Does everything feel mutual between you? Since full moons can bring turning points, you might decide to make things official—or call the whole thing off. A budding connection that’s been building since the spring could turn into the real deal. Ready to sign a business contract or to commit to one special person? This could be the day! Look back to the Aries new moon on April 11 to see what could manifest now, as this six-month cycle reaches a powerful, lunar-inspired turning point.

Mars-Pluto square on October 22 brings out your fieclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” ry side

Libra may be the sign of peace, love and harmony, but when you sense injustice, you can see red. Your legendary patience could evaporate on November 5, when aggravator Mars locks into a heated square with manipulative Pluto, ramping up the conflict and tension. Mars is in Libra and your first house of self while Pluto’s simmering in Capricorn and your home and family sector. Those ties that bind could feel downright suffocating today. Is a close person trying to manipulate you by tugging on your heartstrings? Hold your ground in the face of emotional blackmail and don’t take the codependent bait. You may need to assert yourself in a way that feels unusually forceful. It’s not always comfortable to individuate from your family or support circle—Libras as a rule dislike conflict. But the Mars-Pluto square is demanding that you step up and voice your needs powerfully.

Scorpio season starts October 22

Some grounding energy comes in beginning October 22, when the Sun shifts gears into Scorpio and your second house of work, money and stability. The excitement and excess of Libra season gives way to an industrious groove. Prioritize your projects and devote your time to the ones that will build a sense of security—and a nest egg. If birthday bingeing left you with a lingering hangover (well worth the fun!), you can get back to some daily practices and healthy habits that help you feel centered. The key for any Libra who feels out of balance? Slow down. Less is always more when you get overloaded…and with Mars still in your sign until October 30, that’s likely to happen for another week or so.

The month is off to a flirty and confident start with both love planets in upbeat, vibrant parts of your chart. Your ruler, Venus, will hang out in Sagittarius and your social, lighthearted third house from October 7 to November 5. You’re feeling independent and, if you’re unattached, may be more interested in cantering around the pasture than in tying up to any one hitching post in particular. You could meet someone through mutual friends or while out on the town.

Lusty Mars is on its biennial tour of your sign, making you irresistibly magnetic, upping your already serious charisma and drawing attention your way wherever you go—especially locally. Between now and October 30, make a point of putting yourself out there and letting your sensual side lead. Mars here can offset some of your natural tactfulness, and without meaning to, you could come off a bit opinionated or argumentative. By all means, make your desires plain and be direct. Just make sure you give others the same room to express themselves that you’re asking for.

If you’re in a LTR, this is a great cycle for open, honest communication and being crystal-clear about any needs that aren’t being met. Your side of the bargain: Listen as much as you talk, and don’t get defensive (which Mars can exacerbate). Assume your partner has valid points and, later, take an unblinking look at behaviors you might actually want to shift. Once things are in a nice groove, focus on doing more together as a couple, like taking classes, exploring your neighborhood or taking short romantic day trips.

Put yourself out there, front and center! This is one of the hottest months of 2021 to make your grand debut, loud and proud. Not only is the Sun in Libra until October 22, but mojo-booster Mars is also in your sign through October 30, pushing you into the spotlight. Don’t be surprised if you draw attention for your trailblazing ideas—no need to apologize for tooting your own horn. If your ideas are great and can change people’s lives, why wouldn’t you want the world to know about them? Your “personal New Year” arrives at the October 6 Libra new moon, which sets off a fortunate six-month cycle for your personal initiatives.

Just prepare to navigate a few potholes thrown in your path by Mercury, the planet of technology and communication, which is retrograde in Libra Mars in Libra until October 18. Slow down and look before you leap, and consider holding off on any big, splashy launches until after this date. You’ll probably be glad that you did! When the Aries full moon ignites your partnership house on October 20, you could ink a deal or team up with a complementary collaborator for an even bigger win.
