I don’t know about you, but the warmer weather has got me feeling a little hot under the collar this month! With summer just around the corner and soiree season in full swing, we are très excited for parties, seaside tanning, and perhaps a bit of romance. As the weather heats up and the party invitations pile up, you can bet that Venus is going to be coming out to play and setting you up for a romantic connection. With spring coming closer and closer to a close, here’s what you need to know about what’s in store for you this month according to your October horoscope.

The celestials have spoken, and this month it is alllllll about taking control. Giddy up!

Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23

You’ve been wearing yourself out lately, Libra. You’re dedicated to your work and constantly trying to improve yourself, and while this is a respectable trait, trying to achieve perfection is a fruitless endeavour that will leave you worn out and disappointed. This month, take a step back from the self-critique and make an effort to be kinder to yourself – you need to focus on self-love if you’re to thrive the silly season! You don’t want to be staring down the gun of burnout.

October Horoscope

Scorpio Oct 2 – Nov 22

So many decisions to make this month! Whether it’s a small decision (“Do I really need these shoes?”) or big picture Q’s (“Has this relationship run its course?”) fresh perspectives will be invaluable this month. The decisions you face will have a lasting impact, so gather your mentors and experts and hash out a game plan. Don’t get caught out unprepared!

October Horoscope

Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 22

Venus is feeling frisky this month, Sagittarius, and that means your purr is going to be attracting a bit of attention. Don’t feel rushed to seal the deal – keep it flirty and fun and enjoy your new connections. It might be a special friendship for one night only, or maybe something a little more lasting. Either way, you’ll be surpassing the platonic realm and maybe finding your soulmate! If you’re already coupled up, it might be time to start thinking about what’s next…

October Horoscope

Capricorn Dec 23 – Jan 20

Want to make strides in your career? Turn on the charm! You have a winning smile and personality, as well as a hardworking attitude that people respect. If you want to go above and beyond this month and achieve success, you should definitely get in touch with your inner-charmer. But be careful – don’t let yourself come across fake or forced. Nobody likes a schmoozer…

October Horoscope

Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19

Have you been holding yourself back lately? Maybe you’ve been feeling unconfident or worn out? As tough as it might feel, now is not the time to slow down! No matter how uncertain you may feel about your abilities, you’re capable of great things. It might be time to touch base with an old mentor or a trusted friend for the energy-inject you need. Get out there and kick some butt!

October Horoscope

Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20

No idea is too wild this month, Pisces. From the crazy to the extreme, you are full of wacky ideas and fierce enthusiasm. If you’ve wanted to try something a little left-of-centre (new hair colour? new career?), now’s the time to get outside your comfort zone. Be wary though, as you don’t want to do anything too drastic that could cause you some grief later on.

October Horoscope

Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20

Your motto this month: live your best life! Whatever it is that brings you joy, pursue it this month, Aries. You might be feeling a little run down or unfulfilled, so now is the time to hone in on exactly what it is that fires you up. Let yourself be swept up in your passions and lead by your desires – you only get one life, so live your best!

October Horoscope

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21

Are you ready to push the envelope of love this month? Perhaps it’s a cutie you’ve been eyeing up or a pseudo-relationship that you’re ready to take to the next level. Whatever it is, there’s never been a better time to make a move. Take them to dinner, indulge in a bit of Dutch courage, and let the chips fall where they may. With romantic developments in your future, you will surely be instilled with new energy and confidence.

October Horoscope

Gemini May 22 – Jun 21

It might be time for a reality check, Gemini. Some of your plans lately have been a little outlandish and haven’t exactly come to fruition as planned. It’s not entirely your fault – you’ve always been particularly ambitious – but maybe it’s time to take a step back and reassess? Taking the time to focus a little more on the details before executing your plan will help everything come off without a hitch. Afterall, you don’t want to come up short again…

October Horoscope

Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 23

You deserve to be more than someone’s second choice or last resort. Whether it’s a friend or a lover, you’ve been put on the backburner one too many times and now it’s time to set sail to new shores. If you want to find peace, prioritise your own wants and needs even when others won’t. You should never feel like a burden in someone else’s life – you have your own life to live, of which you are the star performer.

October Horoscope

Leo Jul 24 – Aug 23

You’ve been a little out of touch with your emotions lately, Leo. From the demands at work to the pressures of family, you’ve been pulled in a lot of different directions lately and it’s starting to take its toll on your psyche. Listen to your inner-voice and treat yourself to a bit of R&R and self-love this month. You need to look out for number one!

October Horoscope

Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23

Make sure you are Insta-ready at all times this month Aries, as you’re going to be a bit of a social butterfly! From parties to dinners and everything in-between, you are going to be hot property with the chances to make some real connections and have some proper fun. Put your best face forward, because you never know what could happen.
