Your October 2016 Horoscope by Astrologer, Maya White

October 2016

Aries – (March 19 – April 18) Make inspiration your action plan for October, Aries. The full moon of October 15thjoins Uranus, the magical planet of creation; this dramatic pairing promises a new and exciting future. This is your once in a lifetime chance to set a new trajectory for exactly what you want. Dare to dream, and then apply your best skills into making the dream into a reality.

Taurus– (April 19 – May 19) Yours is one of the ‘take charge’ Sun signs, but your strength this month lies in being both patient and observant. Let the Universe show you how and where you can best focus your attention. Spirit has a great future in the making, Taurus. It is impossible to predict exactly what it will be, but trust that the planets are lined up in support of your life purpose and happiness.

Gemini– (May 20 – June 19) It’s time to nurture and feed your creative soul, Gemini. The planetary pressure is intense on your sign and it’s a critical time to be very clear. Make sure that you’re responding to the way things really are, not just the shadows of your projected imagination. Decisions made at this time will have a long lasting impact. It is possible to have exactly what you want, provided you don’t give your power away.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) This is a critical time to maintain clarity in relationships, Cancer. Mars speeding through your partnership sector will stir up some troubles - if you let him. Some problems do indeed need to be addressed, but others are just ghosts, coming along for the ride. Your challenge is to manage the important ones, and discount the distractions. Tune into your gut to know the difference.

Leo– (July 22 – August 21) If you’ve been looking for assistance, this is your time to accept excellence into your life. It comes down to agreeing that somebody has expertise that you don’t. Accept the complement, Leo. Someone wise is standing by, ready to pitch in and to help bring your project to completion. You can still write up the project manual – in fact, you’ll probably have to. Take it on, and know that (good) help is on the way.

Virgo– (August 22 – September 21) Now that Jupiter has entered Libra you can really buckle down. This sector rules your money, but it also impacts your self-worth – how you feel about yourself. Take stock on some personal details, such as dealing with any extra weight gain from having Jupiter working overtime in Virgo for the past year. You want to be lean and clean for the exciting times ahead. Take care of it now!

Libra– (September 22 – October 21) This month begins a fresh era with the blessings of Jupiter, the purveyor of good fortune. I know you’ve been waiting for this time, Libra, and the promises will be fulfilled. The Aries full moon of October 15thjoins Uranus, the planet of sudden change; so be ready for anything. Reclaim your love of art and music, and know that you have entered a cycle of protection and love.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) You are learning to purify and transform, Scorpio. The planets have initiated your study of Alchemy, and you can now become a master of enchantment. Your universal elixir is happiness and your philosopher’s stone is the application of will. The fire of your passion fuels this revolution. Surrender to your true, deep emotions. You were born this way, and it is your path to walk.

Sagittarius– (November 21– December 20) With Mars and Pluto combining forces in your 2ndhouse of resources; time is money, and money is power. This is one of those times when you want to harness your willpower and focus on a goal. Your efforts pay off in ways that make it all worthwhile. This is a rich and fertile time for you, Sag. Tune into your inspiration, dig your heels into the ground, and do the work; you’ll be so happy that you did.

Capricorn– (December 21 – January 19) October comes your way like the energizer bunny, Capricorn. Mars is in your sign by the beginning of the month, and he’s blowing through like a hurricane! On the 19th, Mars conjuncts Pluto. This is a planetary super power paring that you can use to feed your ambition. Tap into your authority, but give up any urges for blind control. Your secret to success lies in being fair, equitable, and safe.

Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17) You’ve been applying your visionary skills and gifts for quite some time now, and I know that as a co-creator, you have manifested some wonderful realities. The planetary message now is that of sharing your wisdom. It’s time to write the story of YOU; to reveal what you know, how you do it, and the secrets to your success. We all await your insights, Aquarius – the story that only you can tell.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 18) October is a fast paced month, and if you want to be a part of the action, communication is key. It’s time to speak your mind, Pisces; anything left unsaid now will only grow into an unmanageable mess. The best day to navigate any tender emotional territory is the 10th, when Jupiter and Mercury meet under the Light of a clear Aquarius moon. Speaking your truth sets you free to receive every benefit of the Aries full moon on October 15th.
