Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
With Mercury entering retrograde halfway through the month comes feelings of nostalgia and homesickness. Your current whereabouts may be new and unfamiliar, but stick it out. In the end you will be pleased with your efforts. Romantic surprises may loom in your future, but be careful to make sure their intentions are true. You have a big heart and give it up too quickly; take some time to make sure your actions are right for you. Halloween will bring you a night of reunions, but tread lightly and don’t fall for a stranger in a dark mask.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
October is the month for trying new things. Whether it’s sending a risky text or even trying a new activity, changing up the norm will suit you well. Mercury in retrograde may lead you astray and make you doubt yourself, but keep your head up and trust your gut. You got this! You may start to feel moody half way through the month, but remember, nothing is easy during a global pandemic. Take care of yourself and the rest will follow. For Halloween this year, despite feeling blue about lack of celebrations, make your own instead. Invite a few healthy friends over and enjoy the night! Make the most of this month!
Air signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquairius
This month may bring in feelings of romance and love. Enjoy spending time with those around you and keep an eye out for a special someone to pop out of nowhere. They may make a special gesture to catch your attention. This period of love comes during a time of great injustice. As an air sign, you fight for equality and are really passionate about civil rights. Take time to focus on this issue and educate yourself. Now is the time to become as informed as ever. If you are spreading yourself too thin, find the time to book a self-care day. You can’t save the world without taking care of yourself first.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagitarius
On Oct. 13, Mercury will enter retrograde. Get ready for confusion, heartbreak, and a lot of mixed messages. Now is the time to make sure all of your relationships are secure; are you giving and receiving? Being left on read? Now is the time to re-examine. The end of the month will bring the perfect time for you to reflect on your dark shadows, which means darker emotions and feelings. October is the time to get in touch with your spooky side! A blue moon will occur on Halloween this year. With the new moon, remember that not everything is worth holding onto, and learn to let go.
