October Horoscopes

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, be inspired by October and look for potential in peers and nature. Prioritize your voice of reason over impulsive decisions, and actually do homework the day it’s assigned. The moon in Aries signals openness, renewed energy, and romantic possibilities—if you get in a relationship now, you can make the Valentine’s edition! These three aspects combined could cause some big changes if you utilize them wisely.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Tauruses, you have permission to start looking for signals and signs in the world around you. October is a favorable month for Earth signs, and if you think something’s true, it probably is. Let go of negative influences. Friend groups take a while to form, and Cancers and Scorpios know this best. The positive ones will find you. Most likely. 


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Although you may have been ignored, excluded, or straight-up rejected in the past (sorry to dredge up old memories), people are beginning to be drawn to you again. Your magnetic personality is making an appearance, and you should welcome advances with open arms. Geminis, it’s a good time to ask for favors, and better yet, extensions. 


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancers, the craziness of summer and school starting has finally begun to settle down. You’re probably finding your free time more and more sparse. Make room for a personal day, some self-care, journaling, maybe an extra-long bubble bath. Classes and extracurriculars should not be a priority, unless you’re on Tatler, in which case first drafts are due next Monday! 


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos, make sure to keep a level head and not get caught up in drama. Look to air signs for advice on how to stay out of trouble. You’ve done plenty of embarrassing things in the past—mixed up A and B lunch, skipped bench duty, supported the football team, etc. It is time to reflect upon and then let these mistakes go. You are finally ready to make new ones.


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos, you spend every day working towards what you want. Finally, it seems like you’re making progress. Accomplishments in work are predicted for this month, so look for related opportunities (i.e. jobs, service hours, finishing your Capstone already…). Water signs will provide a source of challenge, but honestly, it’s much needed. They can only help in guiding you towards your goals—provided you actually let them. 


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libras, it is finally your season! Everyone knows you’re a bit indecisive, but for once, don’t shy away from what you really want. Be decisive and focus on success, whether it be romantically or in that one STEM class. October is perfect for new potential. No door is truly closed if you force it open, especially a Leo’s.


Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

As Scorpio season nears, and school’s excitement turns to monotony, there is an opportunity to add some spice to your life. This might mean joining a new club, making some money, or saying “yes” to people more often. Denial gets old! Organize your priorities, and your room while you’re at it.


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Forget every small, trivial issue that you’ve let stand in your path. Sags are known for being honest—much too honest at times—and it’s time to be truthful with yourself for once. What do you want out of the month? Will you really let things like test prep and unreliable WiFi prevent your progress? (Hint: the answer is no).


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorns, maybe in the past you’ve been able to avoid your heart’s desires by keeping your nose to the grindstone, but that ends now. October is your chance to stop practicing confessions of love in the shower and actually tell someone how you feel, whether it be platonic, romantic, academic, familial, or any other adjective you can think of.


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Time to start seeing the error of your ways, Aquari (?): karma always comes round-trip. Remember that judging in your head is still judging and use this fall as a clean slate. People will love the real you if you give them the chance to do so. Stop creating false expectations for your relationships! Fire signs may be able to help in this endeavor. 


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, PSA: materialism is not your closest companion. Cultivating connections will create a longer-lasting impact than retail therapy. Keep an eye out for Geminis and Capricorns who may be trying to come back into your life. Let them! It will pay off when you have a friend group to go with to Winter Ball.
