You also might feel a little bit frazzled during the new moon and solar eclipse in flaky Libra (sorry to the Libras reading this for their Sag crushes) on Saturday, October 14. The morbid bright side is that eclipses are stressful for pretty much everyone. Astrologers sometimes advise against partying hard around these cosmic occurrences, as they can lead to fights, but you don’t have to be alone. This is a great weekend to take it easy with friends, enjoy a homemade meal, or plan Halloween costumes.
Whether it’s linking up with a coworker to finish a project, starting a band with friends, or going into business with someone, you see a creative or professional relationship level up once Juno, the asteroid of commitment, enters responsible Virgo and your 10th House of Social Status on Tuesday, October 17. It’s another win in this fortuitous month. Just make sure to communicate clearly, honestly, and directly when it comes to all dealings. When the communication planet Mercury enters complicated Scorpio on Saturday, October 21, you may catch yourself wanting to make promises that you can’t keep but don’t give in to the urge.
Scorpio season, aka the spookiest time of year, aka Halloween, aka only one cycle away until it’s your turn, Sag, begins on Monday, October 23. You’ve had a busy and productive month. All the stars want from you during the end of October is to try to stay in the present and have a good time. The second eclipse of the month, and full moon and lunar eclipse in decadent Taurus on Saturday, October 28, could lead to drunk fights at Halloween parties, but if you decide not to get involved, that doesn’t have to be your problem. See you in November, Sagittarius.
