The path of least resistance might be the smartest way to get what you want this month. Mars enters Libra on the October 4 and, until November 19, using your energy to collaborate and compromise with others seems to be the best course of action. Sometimes that means letting another person get their way. With Mars in Libra, however, you'll lowkey know that this is also how you get to remain in your power.
Love heats up in October thanks to Venus moving into mysterious Scorpio on the 8th. She'll immediately engage in an opposition to Uranus on October 12, shaking up your romantic situation either through unexpectedly revealing or discovering secret information. This can be a hot mess or a deliciously enticing one, depending on your personal situation.
A Full Moon in Aries on October 13 is potent with an exact square to Pluto and trine to Jupiter. The power for you to get what you have always wanted is ripe with this lunation, but you might also pay a hefty emotional price for this achievement. Is it worth it? Only you can decide.
The New Moon in Scorpio on October 27 is exactly opposite Uranus, echoing more sudden changes happening in your intimate and financial world. This lunation hits the same degree as the Venus-Uranus opposition in Scorpio that occurred earlier in the month (on the 12th). Yet another change is now in store, but this is one you're likely to initiate. With Mercury turning retrograde in Scorpio on October 31, it looks like all of these sudden shifts with money and how you use your power need more consideration. If you don't take a step back from all the chaos, you'll really start to feel as if your mind is playing tricks on you. Who needs all that paranoia?

Cancer Monthly Horoscope
June 21 - July 22
A major turning point in your professional life is happening this month thanks to a Full Moon on October 13 landing at the top of your chart.

Don't worry about it too much though -- you're doing what you love and there are plenty of supporters helping you celebrate what you've earned.
Family is a battlefield for most of October with Mars moving into your domestic sector on the 4th. Do what you can to sidestep conflict with relatives. A DIY project around the house can discharge all of the pent-up frustration someone in your clan is feeling.
Romance is a crazy, hot mess this month! Venus will be in your romance sector from October 8 until November 1, signaling the potential for new love.

Leo Monthly Horoscope
July 23 - Aug. 22
Your mouth might get you into trouble this month, Leo. On the one hand, with Mars in your communication sector from October 4 until November 19, you'll feel plenty of courage to speak up for yourself and get what you want by sheer power of persuasion. At the same time, however, you'll need to be careful that you don't come across as intimidating. Your voice will surely pack a punch!
Your domestic life and career might seem extremely chaotic in October, leaving you little room to enjoy romance. Your partner might feel destabilized because you just don't have any time for him or her and, if this happens, an erratic reaction is possible near October 12 when Venus opposes Uranus.
Still, you've got so many new beginnings possible in your domestic world thanks to a New Moon on the 27th. They will require you to be open to doing things differently and you might need to adjust your expectations – especially if you want to regain your power in this area.

Virgo Monthly Horoscope
Aug. 23 - Sept. 22
Debts are being cleared this month, Virgo, and guess what: it's going to feel amazing! You do have money going out due to a Full Moon on October 13 landing in the area of your chart that rules other people's money. This suggests you're about to pay off a major loan or other chuck of money that belongs to someone else. This can be anything from a settlement payout to the IRS to paying off a credit card. Whatever this bill is, you're feeling joyful about getting rid of it so, yes, Virgo, congratulations!
In other news, communication might be erratic and, if there is any information you're keeping to yourself, you might start to become even more secretive.

He or she might be convinced you're hiding something. Are you?

Libra Monthly Horoscope
Sept. 23 - Oct. 22
There is a definite change happening in your love life this month, Libra. A Full Moon in your 7th House of Partnerships on October 13 will help you clear the air with your mate if things have been tense lately. Or, it's possible that you'll decide it's time to walk away from this connection because you've done everything possible to make things work. The problem? It's domestic, of course. This has been the sticking point in your relationship for far too long. One of you might be tired and no longer willing to put work into the relationship.
Financial matters are also a key theme in October with radical changes happening at every turn. Venus moves into your earned income sector on October 8, opening up a window until November 1 of enhanced cash flow.

Scorpio Monthly Horoscope
Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
Venus moves into your sign on October 8, giving you even more sexy vibes than usual. You're not an easy lover to catch and, when you're truly interested in someone, you tend to put them through endless tests that they don't know anything about. There's something about this month, however, that is likely to speed up your usual way of relating and you may find yourself behaving much more erratically. That's because Uranus in your relationship sector will oppose Venus on October 12, making it very possible for you and someone else to escalate your relationship at lightning speed. Conversely, if you're in a relationship that no longer makes you feel valued, you might just as quickly walk away.
A New Moon in your sign on October 27 has much of the same flavor, thanks to its opposition to Uranus. You're ready for a brand-new start and, if a stale relationship is holding you back in any way, you're just not having it. Mercury does turn retrograde in your sign on October 31, however, and you might start to second guess yourself with everything.
Scorpio's keywords for October: beautiful, confident, magnetic, alluring, love affair, break up, sudden love, confusion, indecision

Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope
Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
There might be a problem in your love life that needs to be addressed. On October 13, a Full Moon in your romance sector could lead to a breakup if you realize the relationship isn't progressing the way you'd hoped. Although a breakup is possible, if this does happen, you'll somehow feel that it was the only way to reclaim your sense of self and self-worth.
There's a lot going on in your mind and you might need to take a break from everything so that you can sort out your feelings about several areas, including career and romance. Venus and Mercury will both be in your 12th House of Escape for the month and a New Moon also lands here on October 27. Since Mercury rules your partnership sector and your career sector and will turn retrograde on the 31st, it's possible that you'll begin to feel confused about the overall direction these areas of your life are taking. Try not to make yourself overly anxious; life is in flux -- the changes are helping get to you where you're supposed to be.
Sagittarius' keywords for October: mental burdens, break up, career indecision, confusion, turning points, changes, anxiety, tension

Capricorn Monthly Horoscope
Dec. 22 - Jan. 19
Your social life is likely to be a major source of joy this month -- and chaos! On October 8, Venus moves into your friendship sector and, until November 1, you'll have more pleasurable moments with pals and in group endeavors. On October 12, Venus will oppose Uranus, making it possible for you to experience a sudden romantic encounter with a casual acquaintance. This will be exciting, however, the person you're dealing with probably only wants a "friends with benefits" situation. That might not be your cup of tea.
On October 4, Mars rushes to the top of your chart and, until November 19, you'll have one of your best cycles to push ahead with career goals. This is the time to launch a new business, reach for a promotion or set your sights on leveling up in your profession. Go for it!
Emotionally charged news from a relative might also distract you near the Full Moon on October 13. Give yourself a minute to regroup.
Capricorn's keywords for October: friends, groups, parties, fun, sudden love, casual affair, professional success, ambition, motivation, family

Aquarius Monthly Horoscope
Jan. 20 - Feb. 18
Your professional life is filled with incredible possibilities this October! It all begins on the 8th when Venus moves to the top of your chart. You'll feel validated and definitely noticed by your boss or another VIP connected to your career. Aim for the New Moon on October 27 to initiate any major change you've wanted concerning your professional goals. Just remember to be patient because, on October 31, Mercury will turn retrograde in the same part of your chart, making it likely that the plan you start out with will undergo several revisions along the way.
Your love life might take a backseat this month since you'll be quite distracted with family chaos that comes at you from every turn while you're trying to take advantage of those professional opportunities. Venus will oppose Uranus, now in your domestic sector, on October 12, and the New Moon on the 27th is also opposite Uranus. Someone in your clan might make things very difficult for you. Another possibility is that someone in your family will introduce you to a new romantic interest that you have no time for this month, but definitely makes your heart beat faster!
Aquarius' keywords for October: career, talented, valued, validation, appreciation, family drama, sudden move

Pisces Monthly Horoscope
Feb. 19 - March 20
There is so much happening this month for you financially and, to be honest, Pisces, it might be stressful. On October 4, Mars moves into your 8th House of Shared Resources, which will most likely create an aggravated expense. It can be anything from finding out you owe more taxes to having to deal with a growing credit card debt or other loan that is coming due.
What makes this tenser for you is the fact that, on October 13, a Full Moon in your earned income sector could lead to a change in how you make money. It's a mixed bag. If you're in business for yourself, then there is more likely to be a loss than if you work for a company. Hang in there either way -- this is all very temporary!
When it comes to love, you might find yourself at odds with your partner about religious or spiritual views. This is especially likely to be a problem after October 31 while Mercury moves retrograde through your 9th House of Beliefs.
Pisces' keywords for October: money trouble, income changes, expenses, philosophy, religion, beliefs, mental disagreements
