Horoscopes | October 2017

Virgo | 23 August– 22  September

You need to make a few changes in your life, and you now have the courage and drive to do so. Just be careful that you recognise the areas of your life that are dear to your heart. New learning experiences as well as ‘life’ experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge.


Libra | 23 September – 22 October

You will learn through the course of this period to depend on yourself and to take pride in yourself for what you really are, not only how others see you. Romantic relationships might be tested during this time. You might feel overwhelming pressure coming from your casual love affairs, or the flaws in an existing romance seem to be screaming out at you.


Scorpio | 23 October – 21 November

If you work hard at self-improvement, you will be one step closer to knowing where you are headed, and you will have re-built faith in yourself and your beliefs. A shaky feeling that causes you to sputter and avoid risks will be replaced with a more mature attitude towards adventure and facing the unknown. You are worth something, and you deserve compensation for what you do.


Sagittarius | 22 November – 21 December

It’s time to be more conservative with your money, and feel more accomplished in so doing. You would learn to love yourself and take pride in yourself. Looking outside of yourself for ‘ego strokes’ (whether through romance or other such ‘applause’) may prove to be fruitless. You might encounter opposition or resistance to your personal plans and goals, which forces you to re-evaluate your current projects or commitments.


Capricorn | 22 December – 19 January

You may find new and exciting channels for self-expression. You want to know what you can do, in terms of raw potential, in real terms. Your mind is on your purpose or ‘mission’ in life, and your desire for success is stronger than ever. Your potential is called up for inspection. You are called to express your worth and calibre in measurable, concrete ways.


Aquarius | 20 January – 18 February

You have a more mature grasp of your own capabilities, you project a more responsible, perhaps serious, and self-assured personality to others. You are especially open to receiving grounded, practical advice, and benefit from humbly learning from others. You are likely to discover your true needs from partnerships, as well as what you can realistically give to a partner. You may take special joy in sharing a common cause or ideals with others.


Pisces | 19 February – 20 March

This month brings a fair measure of reality and objectivity, so that whatever relationships you have will be defined and re-defined. Relationships are seen now as serious things. Responsibilities to partners, the need to compromise, and the realities of the needs of others, become clear. Your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. Matters from the past are magnified in your life now.


Aries | 21 March – 19 April

You are mentally adventurous, ready and willing to learn, into “mind expansion”, and less attached to your values. You are forced to begin seeing others as separate individuals, and to improve the manner in which you relate to, and with, others. Make sure that you are engaging in due diligence regarding your body and health through this period, as it will be all too easy to forget those needs and slide into physical difficulties.


Taurus | 20 April – 20 May

You might find that inner and personal experiences are more important to you than more worldly ones during this cycle. You might recycle a fond old memory into a new chapter in your career, no matter how far you’ve come since. How you entertain yourself, how you have fun, and issues surrounding how you manage your ego are now coming up for ‘inspection’.


Gemini | 21 May – 20 June

You might consider fine-tuning your talents and skills with higher education or experience during this cycle. You might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience and share your ideas and projects with more people. You would likely make significant changes to your relationships, leave behind a romance, or strengthen your stance on how you will derive pleasure from your life.


Cancer | 21 June – 22 July

Furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit. Ideals and spiritual goals that you may have taken for granted or worked with for many years might suddenly seem superficial or not particularly useful anymore. This is a cycle in which you need to define, understand, and crystallise your significant relationships with others.


Leo | 23 July – 22 August

You may be laying groundwork and building a long-term project that eventually has much significance in your life. The amount of satisfaction you are deriving from your relationship, the quality of the relationship itself, and how you view your partner are all things that you are examining now. Disillusionment is a possibility, as you are beginning to see your relationship without rose-coloured glasses now.
