EH October Horoscope by Alex Trenoweth
Venus does her final pirouette in Leo on the 9 October before focusing her ample charms in the sign of Virgo, where she begins making a whole different kind of fuss. If the wonderful lunar eclipse at the end of September weren’t enough, we have yet another ‘Hunter’s Moon’ to look forward to on 27 October!
This month you will be turning your attention to your relationships. In particular, you will be asking some very serious questions about whether or not you are getting what you really need from others. The more enduring relationships in your life may seem to have lost their lustre and thus you may spend many restless nights wondering how you can get the sparkle back. Indeed, it may feel as if even the most casual of relationships have suddenly become much hard work. The problem is you are over analyzing things and putting far too much emphasis on practical matters. The result is that your romantic life is suffering from over scrutiny and everyone around you can feel the tension. Towards the full moon at the end of the month, you will be turning your attention to financial matters and will be asking some very deep questions about your values and morals.
If you are the type of Taurus who likes to get your hands dirty, then this is going to be a fantastic month for you. There is a lot of work that needs to be done and you will be the first in line to lend your services. Why? Because you like it! Whilst other signs enjoy a quiet dinner or an evening at the cinema, you dear Taurus enjoy nothing more than mucking in. Anything to do with re-organising or ‘deep cleaning’ is right up your street—and when you get a chance to demonstrate your all natural cleaning products? Well, you’ll be in heaven!! The catch is you will have to work with good folks who really don’t share your passion for tidying up and no matter how many times you show them how it’s done, they are not likely to share your passion. The full moon on 27th may be a very tense time in your personal relationships so bear this in mind before you blow your top.
Right Geminis, you have until 9th of October to get it all out of your system and then you are going to have to be quiet for the rest of the month and concentrate on how you are feeling. If the thought of getting in touch with your feelings fills you with dread then perhaps it is time to face up to your fears. As a person who values rationality, getting to grips with understanding the whys and wherefores of human emotions can seem very unnecessary. And yet, these are exactly the type of situations you are likely to find yourself in as the month progresses. As much as you may dislike it, take some time out of your busy gossip itinerary and consider why you are feeling the way you are. What is your gut telling you? Could it finally be the right time to make a move towards the changes you have been craving for a long time? The new moon on the 13th could indicate a starting point for a new relationship.
You’ve been on a spending spree and now you may be wondering what on earth you are going to do with all this stuff. From the 9th of October, it will be a good time to begin sorting through your purchases and lightening your load. You got some great bargains but do you really need them as much as you thought you would? As the month progresses, ‘Flogging’ becomes your middle name. All manner of methods to sell what you don’t need are favoured and your gift for finding the right words to appeal to the right people are not to be underestimated. So go on: get the stuff you don’t need anymore and think about how much money could be made if you started advertising. The full moon on the 27th indicates a good time to celebrate with friends and to make plans for the future.
Have you had enough of posing for photos and signing autographs? Chances are the answer to this question will be a resounding ‘no’. Yet, this month signals the end of the era of being in the spotlight. Yes, you need to exit stage left and watch the action from the wings. And what action it is! If you can bear to let attention fall on someone else, you are bound to hear all manner of gossip and innuendo. Yes, you need to be quiet in order to hear properly. If you can endure the deafening silence on the topic of your good self, then you are likely to have a good insight into the relationships around you: arguments as well as reunions, affairs and commitments, and old and new loves. Enjoy the new perspective, buy some popcorn and enjoy the show. Sometimes it really is far more fun to let someone else be centre stage. The full moon on the 27th may indicate a crisis in your career but if you can refrain from over reacting, you can impress others with your insights.
Life for you has been a bit of a mixed bag: there have been some very good times and there have been some struggles. In fact, you may feel that for every step forward, there has been an equal step back. What you need is a good dose of fortune! And if you can continue to be patient for a little while longer, you find all the luck you need. From the 9th of October, you should be able to feel a shift in how others perceive you. Where you once may have been considered the wet blanket at a picnic, you will now begin to feel appreciated for what you bring to the barbecue. Yes, that’s right, suddenly you will find that you are positively embraced for all the things that your do. And it’s about time folks started saying ‘thank you’!
You may have the sneaking suspicion that others are talking about you behind your back. And you wouldn’t be entirely wrong! Whilst it’s easy to get a little paranoid, you would be far better off knowing that folks are saying good things about you. In particular your no nonsense approach and ability to stick to your guns when it matters is being admired. And why not? It has taken a great deal of discipline and inner reserve to provide the firm guidance that was required in very sticky situations over the past few months. Now is a great time to bask in the admiration of others—but just be aware that your assistance may still be required. There’s still much to be done and there are lots of people who are slowly coming to the conclusion that you are just the person for the job.
Ouch. The lack of jingle in your pocket might be driving you crazy this month. Scorpios are not known for their love of spending so to not have the cash you want when you need it can seem like a bit of a slap in the face. Fortunately, you are amazingly resourceful and can live with few creature comforts for an uncanny long period of time. One thing you are very sure of is that money can’t buy everything: love, good character and integrity are among the things that can’t be purchased. So whilst it may not be too much fun to watch the pennies, in many ways it is what you are accustomed to. The Full Moon on the 27th will bring a new realization to you and quite possible signal a partnership that could bring about an end to this frugal time.
It’s time to work it, baby. In particular the women in your life may seem to have very high expectations of you. In fact, you might even think they are being unreasonably demanding of your time and attention. Although others may seem difficult to please, if you can just use your ample charm, you will find that you can manipulate the situations you find yourself in. So smile politely, add a compliment or two but stick to your own agenda. It may take a bit of persistence but you should find eventually you can win over even the harshest of critics. The Full Moon on the 27th may signal a time to retreat into a quiet space to re-evaluate your values and priorities after a time of such uncertainty. During this time music and meditation will help you re-balance and refresh your inner self.
Power struggles in the workplace may drain your energy this month if you are not careful. For this reason, getting enough rest, eating well and not letting stress get the better of you are top priorities. Other signs may face similar pressures but because you take everything so seriously, it’s a very good idea to keep minor worries in check. On the other hand, it is a very good time for re-organising and re-structuring. It’s time to clear out old junk, replace things that are no longer working and generally sprucing up your work and living spaces. The full moon on the 27th signals a time of establishing good networks with well connected friends and catching up on all the news you’ve been missing out on.
As a representative of the zodiac sign that’s least likely to demonstrate love and affection in public, all the attention you seem to be getting can seem distinctly uncomfortable. Personal questions, sharing anecdotes and feeling cornered into revealing your innermost emotions can leave you feeling very uncomfortable indeed. In particular, you may find others think it’s perfectly fine to tease you about your love life (or lack thereof) and the more you resist, the more fun it becomes to carry on. So what to do? Well you can ignore them and pretend you’re not really bothered or blow a fuse and tell them to stop. But is it really worth it to get so bothered about such a small deal? Perhaps asking yourself why you’re being so sensitive is a more productive way to deal with these kinds of situations. The full moon on the 27th highlights work stress and could cause you to doubt your abilities. Easy does it, Aquarius.
This month may feel like you are just spinning your tyres as you try to accomplish your goals. You have the best of intentions but just can’t seem to get it together. Or if you do manage to find your motivation, you find catastrophe at every corner. Some of the problems you are experiencing may just be down to overestimating the abilities of other people and underestimating your own. Do you really need to ask for help so often and if so, could it be because you doubt your own capabilities? Whilst everyone is guilty of this sometimes, you may be feeling particularly vulnerable to self doubt and a lack of confidence. When you are starting to feel unsure of yourself, take a good look around you and note how many people need and respect you. The full moon on the 27th should bring renewed energy and belief in yourself. Make sure you mark the day with something life affirming and enjoyable.
