Happy October, gorgeous Libra. Your season began last month, bringing your favorite thing along with it: attention. Sure, the sun enters Scorpio later this month, but you have several weeks left to celebrate. On Wednesday, October 6, the sky goes dark with a potent new moon in your sign, Libra. New moons represent fresh starts, so use this night to go on a first date or write down intentions for Scorpio season. Sit somewhere with a clear view of the black sky and write down your goals in a journal, such as to finish a quilt, get a new job, or even simply stop stalking your ex.
On this same date, Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, goes direct. While the planet of death and rebirth was in retrograde since Tuesday, April 27, the stars asked you to examine your bad habits. Now, it's time to do something about them. For instance, if you tend to push people away or only get serious with incompatible matches, recognize these behaviors don't protect you. They only hold you back from finding someone who truly loves and values you. When your ruling planet, romantic Venus, enters loud Sagittarius on Thursday, October 7, you feel confident enough to enact these changes. If things are going well in your love life, have a conversation to define your relationship and acknowledge your true feelings for your partner. Also, take a moment to share with your closest friends and family how much they mean to you.
Pluto isn't the only planet ending its retrograde this month. On Sunday, October 10, strict Saturn goes direct too. Since going retrograde on Sunday, May 23, the planet of rules, authority, and discipline asked everyone to create boundaries, in particular about what level of socialization they are comfortable with in a post-vaccine world. Because the retrograde fell in the sign of Aquarius and your 5th House of Pleasure, you were forced to focus on your love life, in particular, to determine what makes you most comfortable in a relationship — in and outside the bedroom. Now that you know what works best for you, enjoy living life on your terms once Saturn goes direct. Continue holding strong on your boundaries with partners, even if it's making sure they understand you simply never want to go camping.
Next up is Jupiter. The planet of growth and expansion ends its retrograde, which began on Sunday, June 20 in dreamy Pisces. It goes direct on Sunday, October 17, also in Aquarius, and your 5th House of Pleasure. Jupiter is a fun and lucky planet and wants you to remember that life is meant to be fun. When it goes direct, remember that prioritizing your pleasure is the grown-up way to live. Now that you've gotten conversations about boundaries out of the way, focus on having an amazing orgasm. Conversations about sex and desires (and all other types of communication) should flow easily once Mercury ends its retrograde on Tuesday, October 19.
Circle the 20th in your calendar, as you should receive happy news about love.
Think back to the intentions you set earlier this month during the new moon. On Wednesday, October 20, the sky lights up with a full moon in brave Aries and your 7th House of Partnership. Mark this date on your calendar — you should receive happy news about love. Perhaps that date you went on turns into an official relationship, or you finally work up the nerve to ask your partner to try spanking. If you're single, treat yourself to a new sex toy or simply give yourself permission not to worry about dating at the moment. Your intuition will tell you when the time is right to get back in the game.
The sun enters Scorpio on Saturday, October 23. Yes, Libra season is sadly over, but Scorpio season means Halloween is coming. You are ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty, so this is your time to shine and dress to the nines. Put together your most glamourous costume yet, and take cues from famous Libras, like Serena Williams, Olivia Newton-John, Cardi B, and Gwen Stefani. When warrior planet Mars enters intense Scorpio on Saturday, October 30, your 2nd House of Possessions comes into the spotlight. Keep your eyes on your inbox because this is a great time to go after more money at work. People are aware of your efforts and ready to reward you. Stay safe, and see you in November!
What do all of those famous Libras have in common? A love for red lipstick. Swipe on the Best of Beauty-winning Revlon ColorStay Satin Ink in Fired Up this month.
