Along with the onset of autumn and pumpkin spiced everything, October will be defined by two planetary events; Mars slipping into retrograde, and the New Moon eclipsing the Sun. This means a series of possibilities for each Astrological sign. One, the New Moon eclipsing the Sun means new beginnings will be around the corner for everyone, regardless of your star sign. Two, Mars in retrograde is slowing the world down as we move into winter – all of our plans are bound to encounter hiccups and bumps in the road. October is bound to be filled with exciting news… but it will also beg you to be patient in the face of frustration.
After an eventful summer, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief with Mars forcing us to pace ourselves. We can welcome in cozy mornings with coffee and lazy movie days where we don’t leave the house. This could be paired with a new relationship, a new promotion, or a happy revelation as you begin a new chapter of your life.
Our love lives will also be bombarded by the clash between new beginnings and time slowing – if you’re a Virgo, be prepared for a surprise to breathe some fresh air into your love life later in the month. For one certain Fire sign, the stars predict the arrival of a handsome stranger sizzling with chemistry, regardless if you’re single or taken. Here’s your monthly horoscope for October, including lifestyle, relationships & love predictions!
24Leo: You’re About To Enjoy A Much Needed Break From Your Busy Life
You’re probably aware Mars has been lingering in the area of your chart connected with your career – at least, you’ve noticed the emphasis your life has had on work lately.
An unusual streak of ambitious has rumbled its way through your system over the last few weeks and months!
All of that will be paused in October; when Mars slips into retrograde, you will begin to relax. That competitive streak that sometimes turns you into a maniac will ebb away until you find yourself enjoying the easy-going tone October has to offer. In your spare time, you’ll probably put work into your communication skills!
23Leo Love Horoscope: A Relationship May Grow Fragile, So Be Careful What You Say
Mercury enters Sagittarius on the final day of October which will have many signs feeling sensitive in the weeks leading up to this point. Your partner is no exception, and you may be surprised by what tests your relationship. Depending on your feelings towards the relationship, you may feel vulnerable yourself, or you could feel frustrated by the emotional state of your partner.
If you’re single, miscommunication will be at an all-time high! If you’re about to go on a first date with someone, make sure you think about what you say so it doesn’t come out the wrong way. First impressions are so important!

It’s a good thing – October will be remembered fondly as a milestone month for your happiness.
For the single Cancer, you might indulge in some much needed ‘me’ time… but in all likelihood, you’ll buy an outrageously expensive outfit for a date that will go shockingly well.
20Gemini: Your Creativity And Generosity Are At All-Time Highs
The New Moon eclipsing the Sun on the 3rd occurs in Libra, where Jupiter has been nourishing your opportunities to grow. It has strengthened your already powerful creative intuition, but if there has ever been a time for you to focus on a project, your mind is in the perfect place!
Don’t squander this star-spangled opportunity.
Mars has also lingered in the self-sacrifice sector of your chart for months now, so you will continue to be generous to those less fortunate than you. This generosity could open a door for you in an area of your life you weren’t expecting this month… maybe love is around the corner?
19Gemini Love Horoscope: A Strong Emotional Outburst Will Happen Early In The Month
While Mars in retrograde will slow down plans for your relationship, it will also lead to an emotional outburst. It could be an outburst of love, finally confessing hidden feelings for your boyfriend, or it could be pent up frustration. Whatever leads to this event, be mindful both of you are feeling emotional. Sometimes people say things they don’t mean.
By the third week of October, the Full Moon in Taurus will bring more structure to your love life, and the two of you should be able to laugh about how sensitive you were feeling earlier. Don’t let a small thing blow out of proportion.
18Taurus: A Pause In Your Schedule Will Be Beneficial For Your Health
If you’ve been feeling frazzled, blame the stars. Mars turns retrograde in your sign this month, and its presence will delay a current project or plan. This is inevitable, so its wise to go with the flow and take a breather before you lose your cool.
Hey, we all know you’re a fan of a little leisure anyways.

Things will get extra steamy with your loved one, and he’ll be so blown away by your goddess-like-vibe, he might be inclined to spoil you.

How is the New Moon eclipsing the Sun affecting you? It’s offering you a fresh beginning; perhaps this is the time for you to restructure your spending? No, that does not mean go buy a $300 jacket. It’s tempting, I know… but this month isn’t about that!
13Pisces Love Horoscope: An Epiphany About Your Love Life Is On The Horizon
Many Astrological signs are encountering new beginnings this month, and your love life is no exception.

It could bring about the revelation that you don’t want to be in a relationship anymore. It’s funny what distance can do for your mind.
Clarity can be frightening at times, but this epiphany is something you should hold on to. Even if you can’t imagine your life without your partner, personal growth will benefit your relationship, as well as your mind in the off chance you become single soon.
12Aquarius: A Change In Plans Might Upset You, But It’ll Be For The Better In The Long Run
It’s always heartbreaking when something you’ve been looking forward to doesn’t happen. Mars has been in Taurus, which means all of your energy has been focused on your family and home life, which is why time will slip away from you and these plans will not come to fruition.
Try not to take it out on your family members!

6Scorpio: Your Relationships Might Be Driving You Crazy, So You Should Busy Yourself With A Project

It’s not you, it’s the stars.
It’s the perfect time for you to work on a project. Since your relationships won’t gel well during October, Mars in retrograde motion will help you find motivation for a small project you’ve been thinking about for a while.

5Scorpio Love Horoscope: The Stars Predict A Beautiful Stranger Will Enter Your Life Unexpectedly
If you take time away from your current relationships, whether you’re single or taken, the distance from the most important people in your life could lead you into the arms of a waiting stranger. A handsome one at that.
Venus remains in your sign until the end of the month, which means things will be a little frisky and steamy for you.
