Art by Sian Williams

Happy Libra season! Wondering how October will fare for you? Woroni is here to help.


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You are a natural leader, Aquarius, and this October you will be further drawn to speaking out on issues regarding social justice. Feel confident in speaking your mind and sharing your wisdom. From October 13th, Mercury enters retrograde, which will affect your house of love and romance. As a result, you may experience some instability or tension in your relationships, or you may feel a pull towards reconnecting with past lovers. 

Important date: October 27


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Thanks to the Full Moon in Aries from October 1st, you will feel a sense of assertion and confidence in your communication this month. This will come in handy for some tough conversations you will likely need to have that you have been putting off. October will be a month of transformation for you, as you may find yourself more willing to experiment with your self-expression. 

Important date: October 14


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You will start off October feeling powerful and more in touch with your emotional side, due to the Full Moon in Aries on October 1st. October will be a big month for love and romance. Keep in mind that while it is important to show love to others, remember to give yourself the same loving energy. As someone from your past may reappear surprisingly this month, this will be a good opportunity for you to realise how far you have grown. 

Important date: October 13


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You are loyal and reliable, which makes you a great friend. This October, be sure to maintain the health of your friendships through setting clear boundaries and expectations. Mercury entering retrograde may have you second guessing decisions that you were previously sure of. Do not reject this energy, as you are sometimes too stubborn in your decision-making, and sometimes a fresh perspective can be helpful. 

Important date: October 4


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You likely finished off September in a better headspace than the beginning of the month. Be sure to take this motivating energy through October. There will be a tough decision to be made this month – a sort of fork in the road. Ensure you take the time to consider all the aspects and possible outcomes before you settle on a decision. If mistakes are made this month, don’t bully yourself. Instead, take them as learning opportunities to continue to grow. 

Important date: October 16


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Everything just feels too intense this October, Cancer, and you may feel overwhelmed. You can either accept or reject this energy. This month gives you an opportunity to take more risks, and be more honest with yourself about what you really want and the impact that you can have on the people around you. The Sun remains in your house of home and family until October 22nd. You will feel pulled towards phone calls home and spending more time with your close ones.

Important date: October 2


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Thanks to the Sun remaining in your house of communication until October 22nd, you will find yourself craving stimulating conversations with interesting people. You may feel you don’t have time for discussing shallow or materialistic topics. Your love of learning will be reignited this month. Problem solving in your everyday life will seem like second nature this October. You may feel you are finally connecting the dots on issues that have been present for some time. 

Important date: October 17


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Due to Mercury entering retrograde, be wary of falling back into old habits, relationships or tendencies that do not serve you. Someone from your past may re-enter your life in an unexpected way. October will be a month of moving on from the past and looking towards the future. As someone who is normally careful and concise with your words, you may feel more scattered and reckless this month. Be wary to think before you speak. 

Important date: October 8


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Happy Libra season! You are the sign of fairness and justice, but you are not always fair with yourself. October will be a month of healing and rejuvenation, allowing you to strengthen your relationships with not only others but also yourself. With a New Moon in Libra on October 16th, emotions may be turbulent. A conflict may arise in a close relationship of yours, but it will be quickly resolved. You will leave October feeling more assured about the relationships that truly mean the most to you.

Important date: October 19


Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You may be feeling resentful, Scorpio, but October will be the perfect month for you to shed yourself of these negative emotions and start fresh. Make sure to cut yourself some slack and don’t judge yourself for these negative feelings, as they are completely normal. Prepare yourself for some deep revelations about yourself, as Mercury enters retrograde in Scorpio. Luck will be on your side this October. 

Important date: October 22


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You tend to want to escape situations or feelings when things get complicated. This October, make an effort to confront your problems head on. Self-discipline is important this month, as you tend to act impulsively or recklessly without considering the consequences. With the Full Moon entering your house of creativity, you will start off October feeling pulled towards healthy expression of your emotions through creative outlets. 

Important date: October 21


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You may feel out of sync with your social life this October, but this is temporary and will pass. Use this energy as an opportunity to re-evaluate which relationships are truly serving you. You will reach a goal this month that you have been working towards for a long time coming. Make sure to bask in this sense of achievement and let yourself feel pride in your efforts. Regret will be an emotion that seems to burden you this October. Take time to look after yourself and move forward from the past. 

Important date: October 11
