Last month pushed us to get our ducks in a row. Many felt stacked at work, calling it a night at 6pm, over-thinking, engrossed in self-help and wellness. October is here to breathe life into our relationships, boost self-image, and reinvigorate passion projects.
Libra season (till October 22) is permission to harvest the fruits of your labor. Lighten your workload, boost your social calendar, say yes to that second date, get a pedicure, and organize a local Airbnb getaway with your besties.
Libra rules spontaneous, whimsical, one-foot-in-one-foot-out romance… but don’t forget the big picture. If it’s casual now, will you want commitment later? Is everyone on the same page? The low road of Libra is self-sacrifice. Crossed wires are likely with Mercury retrograde in the mix (until October 17 with a shadow phase winding down until the 27th). Don’t be afraid to over-communicate to ensure everyone is on the same page, whether it’s a one night stand or long-term beau.
As the month dips into sultry, psychic Scorpio, take emotional inventory of what relationships offer depth, versus what was convenient and fun. Do the vibes you give off match what you’re feeling, or are you being overly protective of your heart? The shadow traits of Scorpio season (October 23-November 21) are control issues and paranoia. Bypass sticky situations by staying transparent.
Libra wisdom reminds us that the most important relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself. As Scorpio season approaches, the lesson becomes: am I emotionally fulfilled? Am I putting too much responsibility on my relationships to give me a sense of purpose? Do the people important to me know how I feel? As you navigate October, nurture the duality of what you want and what you need. Don’t be afraid to put yourself first, and try not to sacrifice authenticity for approval. Your best life is waiting for you!
