We will also see some pitfalls along the way, although if we use astrology to our advantage then we can avoid these and steer ourselves calmly through October, harvesting some of our celestial good luck along the way.
Here are some important dates throughout the month:
5th October – Full Moon in Aries
We have a Full Moon in Aries which is a time of completions but which also brings with it a warrior vibe thanks to Aries, the sign of the Ram. At the same time, we have Mars and Venus in alignment so this day (and the time around it) could be positive or negative. It is a time of big breakthroughs but these could also bring break ups and breakdowns if all has not been going well. Try to stay calm on this day and avoid wars of words. At the same time look out for sudden bursts of good fortune. It is one of those days.
19th October – New Moon in Libra
There is a New Moon in Libra today which is the sign of romance, relationships and collaborations. This means that many signs will be hit by romantic vibes and new relationships could flourish. A New Moon is usually about new beginnings, so if you are attached then you could enter a new and exciting phase in a relationship. This could also point to non-romantic collaborations such as new work assignments and lucrative clients!
26th October – Luckiest day of the year!
October is the month with the luckiest day of the year which falls on the 26th. This is such a lucky day for all signs so use it as a kind of spiritual New Year. Whatever you want, or whatever you have been working towards, will be blessed with an abundance of luck now. So pitch an idea, make a love declaration, or ask for a raise. This is the best day to do it in 2017!
And now for a look at each individual sign...
Like almost all signs, Aries, October will be a bit up and down. Things start off well for you and you may find that work and romance come together well, or you have a romantic encounter with someone at work. Romance will also be in the spotlight for you around the New Moon on the 19th of October and you may get some bad news that you were not expecting. Whatever happens however, you can navigate your way through this if you stay open and talk about it calmly with your loved one. Emphasis on calmly Aries – which is not your strong suit! Around October the 22nd you will have more time to focus on partnerships and collaborations. These could come in the world of work and be very lucrative, or you could get close to a special someone. Money luck also hits around the end of the month. This ties in to October the 26th which is the luckiest day of the year so make sure to watch out for signs of a financial windfall.
October is one of the most significant months of the year, but you are likely to feel this more than others Taurus.
