Virgo: Welcome to October, Virgo! Get ready for a whirlwind of emotions this upcoming month. A Mercury retrograde is upon us from October 13th to November 3rd. With Mercury as your ruling planet, retrogrades in particular deeply affect you. As we’re all still stuck in this pandemic, you may have been feeling a bit lonely. These feelings may lead you into having a strong temptation to text your ex. Before doing so, check with yourself about your own intentions. It’s best to not rekindle anyone who was once or still a source of pain. However, you may hear from a crush you’ve always liked on the new moon in Libra on October 16th. Be sure to take this opportunity!

Libra: Welcome to October, Libra! We’re starting off the month on the 1st with a full moon in Aries. This will bring out your confidence and boldness. Use this time to be honest about your needs and be true to yourself. From October 13th to November 3rd, there will be a Mercury retrograde. During this time, people may look to you to sort things out--whether it’s helping with fundraisers, a project, or being a good friend to lean on. However, during the new moon in Libra on October 16th, this night should be all about you. It’s the perfect time for “me” time and self-pampering. Treat yourself!

Scorpio: Welcome to October, Scorpio! This month will start off great with the full moon in Aries on October 1st giving you a burst of optimism and will be inspired to be good to those around you. Mark your calendar for Mercury retrograde on October 13th to November 3rd. You will be more affected than others and are prone to fall into bad habits if you’re not careful. Be wary of sabotaging your current relationships. Reflect and try not to take everything personally. However, on October 16th, a new moon in Libra will appear, indicating new beginnings. Use that weekend to let go of any stress or resentments! Plus your season starts on October 22nd, so make sure to focus on yourself!

Sagittarius: Welcome to October, Sagittarius! You’re used to always being the star, and nothing is different this month considering there’s a full moon in your fellow fire sign, Aries. You always do whatever you want, whenever you want, but you should take the time to do something that’s not at the top of your list. With Scorpio season approaching, it’s time to process what you’ve gone through this year. Don’t worry though, by Halloween you’ll be back to doing whatever you please!

Capricorn: Welcome to October, Capricorn!

Once you do, good things are waiting for you. Being an ambitious sign, you’re always go, go, go. Relax during this month! You deserve it.

Aquarius: Welcome to October, Aquarius! Be careful with 2020’s final Mercury retrograde. As the water bearer, you tend to hold all the secrets - don’t let them spill out! Be cautious with who you tell things to, it could come back to bite you. When the new moon begins on the 16th, your hunger for new knowledge or hobbies will kick in. Take this time to dive deep into a subject that you find interesting or pick up that quarantine hobby you never got started on; there’s freedom in the unknown!

Pisces: Welcome to October, Pisces! With your fellow water sign, Scorpio, taking center stage this month, your moodiness is sure to come out. Nothing to fear, there is nothing wrong with this!
