As the sign of relationships, you can get booked up pretty fast. There are so many people who want to hang out with you, Libra. So get ahead of it by scheduling your alone time. Late October gets busy once the sun enters Scorpio, and it’s Halloween party time. So, if you need a night to dance in your PJs or only hang out with pets and not humans, opt for Saturday, October 14. There’s brings a new moon and solar eclipse in your sign, Libra. You may recall that while many of us associate eclipses with fun outdoor science class as a kid, astrologically speaking, eclipses can be stressful. They leave everyone feeling on edge, and this one occurs in your sign. It’s the best weekend of the month to opt for enjoying your favorite snacks in front of the TV instead of going out.
You might want to plan out any heart-to-hearts you have this month. When Mercury enters Scorpio on Saturday, October 21, it’s also entering your 2nd House of Possessions, Libra. Sure, sometimes this part of your chart is associated with money, but it also points to your feelings. Whether you like it or not, you own and must take responsibility for those, too. With support from Mercury, the messenger of the Gods, this is an easy time to express yourself. You’re feeling assertive, yet not aggressive, and others are ready to hear you out. Plus, once Scorpio season begins on Monday, October 23, you’re going to be busy at work and in any side hustles.
But the real reason to schedule any important talks during the third weekend of the month, rather than the final, is because the second chaotic eclipse of the month comes on Saturday, October 28, in the form of a full moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation. It’s probably unrealistic to tell you to stay in during Halloweekend, but you can focus solely on celebration and avoid the drama by getting anything important out of the way. Remember, eclipses like to take any topics we procrastinate on and bring them to the forefront. But, with a little star-powered scheduling, October should be a festive month filled with fun Halloween makeup and forward momentum, both in your personal life and passion projects. Enjoy, and we’ll see you in November.
