Hello, pretty Pisces, and welcome to October. Last month, Mercury retrograde began, and you had to fight off the return of exes sliding into your DMs. Don't worry; four different planets go direct this month, providing you with smooth sailing and communication. But first, the October sky darkens during a new moon in romantic Libra and your 8th House of Sex on Wednesday, October 6. New moons mark fresh starts, so if you're single, this is an ideal night to schedule a first date. If you're partnered, take a relaxing bath together to reconnect.
On this same date, Wednesday, October 6, Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, goes direct in determined Capricorn. It's been retrograde since Tuesday, April 27, and asked you to put negative thinking patterns to rest. To everyone else, you look like a gorgeous and talented catch, but you can doom spiral into thinking that you don't deserve love. When Pluto does direct, your task, sweet Pisces, is to become aware of how amazing you are and date with confidence.
Expect a much-deserved reminder of how sexy you are.
When lover planet Venus enters brazen Sagittarius and your 10th House of Social Status on Thursday, October 7, you spend time with someone that you're attracted to and supports your dreams. If you're in a long-term relationship, this partnership will remind you of why you're with the person. Celebrate your love with a fancy date night like you just met. If you're single, expect a much-deserved reminder of how sexy you are when a new crush messages you.
The second planet to go direct in October is strict Saturn, on Sunday, October 10, in Aquarius and your 12th House of the Unconscious. The planet, which rules authority and ambition, has been retrograde since Sunday, May 23. During this time you realized that the insecure voices in your head arise from trauma, not reality. Now that the planet is direct, you need to live from a place of self-love and confidence. If you're working through some scary stuff, consider hiring a therapist to have as much support as possible.
This month could be major for your finances.
When the lucky planet Jupiter ends its retrograde, which began on Sunday, June 20, goes direct on Sunday, October 17, you find unexpected sources of joy. Whether it's spending time with a puppy, a rare compliment from your boss, or the sound of rain, stop and notice when you feel gratitude. Life flows easier for everyone when Mercury ends its retrograde and goes direct on Tuesday, October 19.
The sky lights up with a full moon in confident Aries and your 2nd House of Possessions on Wednesday, October 20. This is major for your finances. Clients finally pay their bills, or that creative brain of yours comes up with a unique new project. When sexy Scorpio begins on Saturday, October 23, you have your confidence back, and just in time for Halloween. The month ends with warrior planet Mars entering Scorpio and encouraging you to celebrate the spooky holiday big this year. Stay safe, and see you next month!
