Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)
This September put you in an odd place mentally. You’ve been put through the ringer by someone you thought you could trust and loved dearly, and are no longer sure how you feel about this person. Your instinct is to forgive, Aries, as usual – and this is one of the few times you’re re-considering this with them. Maybe, just maybe, they’ve pushed you too far this time. One thing’s for certain, you’ve had your fair share of interpersonal growth this month. October should bring you relief, as you’ll be gently reminded as to who your true friends are. Chin up, buttercup.
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
September for you has been a month of opportunity. Whether it was academic, with your job or in your relationship (platonic or otherwise), pleasant changes that feel too good to be true have been leaping into your lap. This is normally overwhelming for the quiet, reserved bull that you are – but don’t shy away from them! This is the month for you to grab your life by the horns and advocate for yourself and your future by taking a risk. Peeking into October, you’ll be on fire with confidence and positivity. This could either go very well or very bad – just make sure you keep your wits about you. As long as you don’t forget who your friends are, you’ll go into this autumn buzzing.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’ve invested in some serious change for yourself this September, Gemini; whether it was a change of style, the way you do your eyeliner or a change in attitude, you’ve become a new version of yourself. It’s been a good change for yourself, and it’s been a while since you’ve felt this good about where you’re going and what you’ve done for yourself. Lately it’s been feeling as though you’ve spent so much time on others, it’s a relief to finally get some me-time. Keep that up! It keeps the fire inside of you burning hot. For October, you feel the need to push yourself. And you should. You’ve got the pep and energy for your September adventures that will bring you to the front door of whatever it is you’re chasing. Ride this wave, trust me.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
September of this year has been that of social action for you. There’s a voice you’ve found within yourself, and you’ve been using that newfound power for good. There’s been no shortage of challenges that followed behind your interpersonal discovery, but you’ve faced them all head on and without blinking. Your perspective has brought you the attention of many (maybe through social media or within your friend group and beyond), leaving you feeling empowered. Roll with it! October will be the month you indulge a little. Treating yourself is always a good thing, just be sure to be careful on how you go about it. Don’t forget that your actions affect other people!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
For once in your life, you’ve finally felt like you got to relax this month. You’ve spent the last few months helping others with their issues, that you’ve earned some peace of mind. Not that you mind, of course – giving advice is where you shine, but be sure to heed your own advice once in a while, too. This next month will test you once again when someone close to you will ask just one too many stupid questions. Don’t lose your temper with them Leo, remember – your response is heavy for this person. Take a deep breath, and keep on keeping on.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)
This year so far has left you feeling like the world you knew was turned upside down. Big change here, big change there, it’s all so overwhelming. A major life change you made at the end of last year brought on an unseen amount of new stresses, and September especially seemed to have pulled you from every direction emotionally. Sadly, you’re going into October up to your ears in stress. However, with your limits being tested and redefined, you’ll come shining through in no time. Maybe, if you let yourself, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with who you’re becoming.
Libra (Sep. 23 – October 22)
Lately, you can’t help feeling like you’re a step behind everyone else. You see most of your friends moving on to take big steps for themselves, making you feel stagnant. It’s always been a bad habit for you to compare yourself to others who you feel are doing better than you, looking for a way to make yourself feel better. Well, October is the month to change that in yourself. Success is relative, Libra, and it’d be wise to not forget that while it’s easier to feel uncomfortable with the pacing in your life, it’s never too late to change it. Make October work for you this year.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Tension has been the norm for you this September, and it’s been exhausting. Someone, maybe even you, seems unwilling to admit that they’re struggling, which can leave people feeling as though they’re not trusted. While it’s scary to be vulnerable, keeping feelings from your loved ones will only cause problems for those around you. If you’ve been bottling things up, October is the time to let it all out. If you know someone who’s holding things in, it’s about time you gave them a nudge to vent.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
No one ever seems to listen to you, do they? You’ve been asked a lot of deep questions lately, ones you’ve spent a lot of energy answering, but to no avail. You know it’s not supposed to be a big deal, but your gears have been thoroughly grinded this month. Your wisdom and effort will not go unnoticed this October, so be sure to not let your rage for ask-holes spill over onto someone who genuinely seeks your input. This October is where the difference will be defined. Just be a little more patient, for just a little while.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Ideas have been flooding your brain, and you’ve been too scared to voice them. You’ve been rejected by voicing your ideas before, and the humiliation left you inconsolable. However, keep this in mind, Capricorn: what if your idea is enthusiastically acknowledged? Your chances for acceptance are equal to that of rejection, and if you don’t take the risk and make yourself vulnerable, you will only know rejection. October will bring you only a few more chances to voice your brilliance, so don’t sell yourself short!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
This month has been a huge month for your love life. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, there’s been some major change in the way you look at love. And that’s not a bad thing! This month has pushed you, and with that, you’ve learned a lot of things about yourself and who you want to be. Your current partner is happy to see you blossom into a more confident, independent version of yourself. Or, a future partner will be grateful for the changes you’ve welcome within yourself. October is where these new traits are the most prominent, as your limits for what’s normal will be stretched. You’ve done well with adjusting so far, don’t slow down!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
You’ve been burying your feelings in things you know you shouldn’t be, Pisces. You feel like you’ve been pushed past your limit, and the only way to feel better is to not feel at all. This may work for you, but this is supposed to be temporary. If you let this fester for too long, you’ll have a vicious cycle on your hands. October will be the month that makes you or breaks you. Whether you stand up to what’s holding you back from progression or you sink deeper is completely up to you. Don’t underestimate yourself this fall.
