You may feel some burn-out once the fighter planet Mars enters volatile Scorpio and your 6th House of Health on Wednesday, October 11. Don’t worry; astrologers don’t talk about health like doctors. We’re not; we’re just planet-obsessed cheerleaders for your well-being. This transit just means that you’re allowed to be lazy. Relax, watch TV, and make sure you take it easy.
Keep the laid-back vibes flowing as Saturday, October 14, brings a new moon and solar eclipse in Libra and your 5th House of Pleasure. This is a recipe for mind-blowing sex but also relationship-shattering fights. Avoid overconsumption and opt for sweet nights at home over all-nighters.
If you can keep the calm on the homefront, even in the face of chaotic eclipses, October just may see you leveling up a relationship. Admit it. You’ve been craving more intimacy. Casual can be fun, but you’re ready to settle into something solid (and with ethical non-monogamy, you can enjoy both). You want that friend to be a best friend. Or maybe you’re ready to move in with a partner. Whatever you’re after, your wish will be considered by the stars when Juno, the “asteroid of commitment,” enters Virgo and your 4th House of Home and Family on Tuesday, October 17. Sometimes, wishes come true.
You can relax with your secrets in the hands of the stars. This allows you to chill out when the sun enters Scorpio on Monday, October 23. Scorpio energy can be volatile, and as a result, even though it’s Halloween and everyone is partying, you feel a little drained. So, have fun by playing with Halloween makeup or costumes, but know that it’s okay to have a laid-back celebration if the idea of waiting for an overpriced cab is just too much for you. The Saturday leading up to Halloween may be slightly chaotic, as there’s a full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday, October 28. Cool as they may be, eclipses are tumultuous. You’ll see people fighting dressed up in the most hilarious of costume combinations, be warned. Take it easy, and see you in November.
