October 2021 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview
As we welcome in the coolest and spookiest month of the year so far, we make way for a transformative month of new beginnings as all members of the Zodiac begin to settle into a calmer period in their lives. This month, we’ll be kicking off October in the sign of the balance-seeking Libra. As a master of hustling and creating stability in all that they do, this air sign will encourage the Zodiac members to get to work on personal endeavors with a fiery new ambition as they strive for balance in all areas of their lives. From work to relationships, get ready to channel some major personal power this month as you cut past ties and move forward with a new and inspired vision like no other.
To follow this, at the end of September, we hit our last Mercury retrograde of 2021, which will linger in our space until October 17th. When Mercury is in retrograde, it is notorious for stirring up miscommunications and disagreements, so be careful with discussing touchy subjects with your coworkers and or partner. However, while this retrograde energy is known for stirring up trouble, it can also be very beneficial for working through traumas of the past and cutting toxic cords from past relationships. Therefore, get ready for a period of growth and rebirth, as many of the signs are likely to revisit things from their past this month to better make way for new opportunities in the future.
As you can see, October is predicted to be quite a powerful month with a variety of new energies entering our space. But above all else, it’s likely to be much calmer and more laid back than any other month we’ve seen this year. To give you a better idea of what you can expect, today, we’re going to touch on a brief overview of what changes each Zodiac sign can expect to feel throughout October and how each sign can make the most of it.
