October 2016 Horoscopes: Aries
MARCH 21 – APRIL 19
Summer may be over, but your month is going to be hot. Mars, your ruling planet, dominates your October horoscope, bringing with him plenty of fireworks to keep you on your toes. He’s moving through Capricorn, your career sector, giving you the motivation you need to pull off a major power move. If you have something big in mind, this month is your time to shine.
A square between Mars and lucky Jupiter fresh into your relationship sector makes the first week is extra hot, especially on October 5. By the time talkative Mercury enters Libra on the 7th, you’ll be ready to tell them how you really feel. The following week, good vibes from Neptune in dreamy Pisces give you the courage to live out a fantasy. It’s all well and good until Mercury squares off with Mars on the 13th, when you’re tempted to throw caution to the wind and click “send” on something you might regret. Hold off until the 15th when Mars lines up with the North Node in Virgo. The North Node is also called the “destiny point,” so this acts like a big neon sign pointing you out of shadowy distractions and back into the light.
The Aries full moon on the 16th puts you in the spotlight, sending you unexpected rewards for a job well done. It’s on Uranus, the planet of visionaries, so you’re finally acknowledged for being the trendsetter you are. It’s opposite Mercury, so details of friendship dates or quality partnership time could fall through the cracks. Luckily, there’s a potent combination of Mars and Pluto in your career sector will help you power through it.
The vibe shifts on October 22, when the sun enters secretive Scorpio. The way you think and speak follow suit when Mercury follows on the 24th, sending you into stealth mode. For best results, keep your secrets. It’s all amplified by the Scorpio new moon on the 30th, just in time for Halloween. Scorpio is your eighth house of sex, magic, and taboos, and with psychic Neptune in the mix, be prepared for things to get a little spooky. A crystal massage, a tarot reading, or a Eyes Wide Shut masquerade party could all be great options. We won’t tell.
