Your October 2021 Horoscope with Maya White

October 2021

Aries – (March 20 – April 18) If it feels good, do it! Go for fun and creativity this month, Aries. With Mars, your ruling planet moving through Libra, this is a time to go for balance. Amazingly, Mars is exactly conjunct the Sun and Moon at 13 Libra for the Full moon of October 6th! Make it a point to align with the best qualities of Mars such as taking action and getting the job done. Keep your head straight; Saturn is helping you make good decisions now. Don’t let anything or anyone steal your thunder – it’s all about you.

Taurus – (April 19 – May 19) What to do - the world is spinning about, and you just feel like shopping or going to a movie? Stay off the wild merry go round this month, Taurus. Keep your feet on the ground and your head into minding your own business (literally). Your most important mission is to perfect your own corner of the world. Delve into your self-image, and get clear about what is unfinished, or unfulfilled. The doors to your psyche are open now. What you want is waiting just around the corner - name it and claim it!

Gemini – (May 20 – June 19) Since Mercury is your ruling planet, you are one of the signs most influenced by Mercury retrograde – which began last month and lasts until October 17/18. This retrograde lands in your 5th house of creativity, children, and even speculation. The gain for this month is to look for opportunities to make things easier and flowing better. There is a golden nugget hidden inside any tangled situation. Dig deeper and the awesome missing piece will be revealed - there is something valuable wrapped up in what appears to be a delay.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) This October is an excellent time to regroup and reorganize. Journaling, goal setting, and vision boards fit nicely with the planetary plan for your sign. It’s the perfect month plan a weekend retreat dedicated to yourself and the future you wish to manifest; and it’s not too early to start thinking about next year. You’ve got to take the energy of this month to heart and get into the Big Picture mode. Move past the temptation to stay busy with unimportant details. Long term planning brings you joy, and when you’re happy, everybody else is too.

Leo – (July 22 – August 21) There is a slight frustration around finances this month, Leo. Delay large expenditures if possible, and although it’s not as much fun, this is a good time to take a look at ways in which you are actually losing money. With both Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, you can get real support and benefit from all partnerships, including financial ones. Your keyword for October is ‘depth’. Get realistic about your true feelings and most of all – trust your cat-like instincts.

Virgo – (August 22 – September 21) Speak up for your interests this month, Virgo. There are some subtle power plays going on for you so acknowledge that vibe and step up with your best game. No apologies needed here – just be honest and clear in your presentation. Know where your bottom line is, and stand your ground. Exercise, good food, and fascinating companions are the antidotes for this feeling. Trust in your perceptions; what you think is happening is right on. Uranus is inviting you to dig into your most exciting project – something that gives you a sense of accomplishment and winds up the year.

Libra – (September 22 – October 21) The super energized New moon of October 6th shines a light on you! The impact of Mars ensures that this is a re-set button in your life. If you have a business relationship that doesn’t work out this month or next –know that this is to your advantage. Pay attention to your dreams and/or other messages that come your way, Libra. The subtle realm is working overtime to get your attention. Find a place of inner joy and keep yourself grounded in peace this month. Feed your creative juices, and just let things unfold.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) October is your month to tend to business. Add your special brand of finesse to anything you touch; there are some things in life that only a Scorpio can do in that special way. You have a unique gift of practical ability married to creativity that is hard to find; keep doing it your way, and you’re golden. This isn’t your month for top recognition, however; use the time to get ready for big action in November. Everything will slowly straighten out as finally, Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury all return to direct motion by the 18th. Write down your goals and turn up the magic!

Sagittarius – (November 21– December 19) Patience is your keyword for October. Mercury retrograde slows things until the 17/18th; you simply have to trust that there’s an important reason for any seeming delay. There is something in the nature of holistic healing that is taking place on a deep level for you now. Be sure to get enough rest and take care of any loose ends this month. Spend some of that extra money that comes your way on personal enrichment. Your talent shines like a bright star. It’s a great month to glam up the resume and get ready for the good things which are on the way.

Capricorn – (December 20 – January 18) October is a month for you to celebrate the fruition of a long-held dream, Capricorn. You’ve worked long and hard for this, and don’t let any temporary distractions steer you from the full enjoyment of your reward. Keep a picture of the ocean in your mind. It’s a bit like being in a boat – there are some ups and downs, just ride the waves and let everything settle into a rhythm. It’s likely the recent planetary stresses have taken a toll on your health. Don’t forget to nourish and support your strong constitution; massage would work wonders – make it once a week for the entire month and tell me what you think.

Aquarius – (January 19 – February 18) Make a note Aquarius – no hasty financial decisions this month. Got it? Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security – yes, you absolutely know your ‘stuff’ and, you even have the math all under control. Always when there is a challenge, there is also a great reward – October is one of those times. Your arena for reward is in career and social success. Your advancement comes with new responsibilities – do what you must and step up to negotiate. Mercury retrograde until October 17/18 is your friend, Aquarius; it gives you a chance to buy some time – a priceless commodity at this stage of the game.

Pisces – (February 19 – March 19) Questions are answered now; make peace with the sense of relief that this knowledge gives. Although you’re popular and everybody loves you – it still feels as though income is a bit on the slow side. This is your time to plant the field for a future money harvest, Pisces; take on the extra work for now – it’s simply a matter of pacing yourself. Plan a nice weekend retreat on the 16th and 17th; that way you’ll be refreshed to receive the good surprise that comes your way by the end of the month. Somebody has a special gift. Know that you deserve this, and it’s long overdue.
