Happy October, gorgeous Libra. Your season began last month, bringing your favorite thing along with it: attention. Sure, the sun enters Scorpio later this month, but you have several weeks left to celebrate. On Wednesday, October 6, the sky goes dark with a potent new moon in your sign, Libra. New moons represent fresh starts, so use this night to go on a first date or write down intentions for Scorpio season. Sit somewhere with a clear view of the black sky and write down your goals in a journal, such as to finish a quilt, get a new job, or even simply stop stalking your ex.
On this same date, Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, goes direct. While the planet of death and rebirth was in retrograde since Tuesday, April 27, the stars asked you to examine your bad habits. Now, it’s time to do something about them. For instance, if you tend to push people away or only get serious with incompatible matches, recognize these behaviors don’t protect you. They only hold you back from finding someone who truly loves and values you. When your ruling planet, romantic Venus, enters loud Sagittarius on Thursday, October 7, you feel confident enough to enact these changes. If things are going well in your love life, have a conversation to define your relationship and acknowledge your true feelings for your partner. Also, take a moment to share with your closest friends and family how much they mean to you.
Pluto isn’t the only planet ending its retrograde this month. On Sunday, October 10, strict Saturn goes direct too. Since going retrograde on Sunday, May 23, the planet of rules, authority, and discipline asked everyone to create boundaries, in particular about what level of socialization they are comfortable with in a post-vaccine world. Because the retrograde fell in the sign of Aquarius and your 5th House of Pleasure, you were forced to focus on your love life, in particular, to determine what makes you most comfortable in a relationship — in and outside the bedroom. Now that you know what works best for you, enjoy living life on your terms once Saturn goes direct. Continue holding strong on your boundaries with partners, even if it’s making sure they understand you simply never want to go camping.
