Monthly HoroscopeOctober 2020
This month begins with a Full Moon in your Sun sign on October 1. If you were born on or around March 30, of any year, or have Aries rising at around 9 degrees, this Full Moon will feel especially strong for you. You could have a powerful realization about an important relationship, and personal projects may come to fruition around this time. If emotions feel especially intense on or around this Full Moon, remember to take a step back and give yourself space for self-care. With Mars retrograde in your Sun sign, it will definitely be a month to take things slowly and gently.
The Sun will shine in Libra through the 21st, which will highlight relationships and negotiations. It will be a good month to see all sides of a situation and work to achieve harmonious outcomes. On the 22nd, the Sun will move into Scorpio, helping you to get to the root of a problem and uncover hidden information.
We will be under the influence of both Mars and Mercury retrograde this month, making it especially important to slow down and review our current plan of action. If you were born April 6 - 15, of any year, or if your rising sign is between 16-25 degrees of Aries, you’ll be feeling the most powerful effects of Mars retrograde this month. Your impulsive instincts could be stirred, which could cause you to take an action without thinking things through. Make a policy this month to build in a pause before reacting or agreeing to a plan of action. It will be best to wait until after November 13, when Mars will station direct, to make major life decisions. Use the coming weeks to focus on yourself and what you need in the present moment.
Mercury will station retrograde in Scorpio on October 13, and by October 29 it will be back in the late degrees of Libra. This will put an emphasis on relationships of all kinds. There could be unfinished business between you and a former partner. Orient any communications with people from your past towards resolution.
This month’s New Moon on October 16 will be in Libra, which will support intentions related to marriage, partnership, negotiations, and your image. Even with Mars and Mercury retrograde, it will be important to set intentions at this time. When we’re clear of these retrograde cycles next month you can review and refine your intentions.

The second Full Moon in October will be on the 31st in the sign of Taurus. This Full Moon is combined with a high-intensity conjunction to Uranus. You or others could be feeling insecure and finances may be a focus. You could receive important information that will help you improve your financial flow. Be conservative with your spending.
Venus and Mercury both move into Libra on the 27th, and Mercury will station direct in Libra on November 2. As we move towards November, you’re apt to feel a bit more ease when it comes to personal and professional interactions.
