HOROSCOPESDonna Taylor explores the heavens to find out what's in store for you in the coming months
Libra 23 Sept - 23 Oct Happy Birthday, Libra. Expect a lot of forward movement in October as Mars joins the Sun and Venus in your sign. This is good news if you’re seeking a renewed sense of purpose or wish to begin a new project. Now you can start making real progress and move forward in a way that resonates. This could be a time of new beginnings, or it could be a time of renewed vigour. Or both. Either way, it’s time to think of yourself as a warrior – strong and determined – someone who can take charge and make things happen. And remember, ‘Magic is believing in yourself; if you can do that, you can make anything happen.’ - Goethe.
Sagittarius 23 Nov - 21 Dec “With determination, discipline and hard work all dreams become a reality.” - Lailah Gifty Akita. Provided you don’t get lost in a pipe dream, autumn is a time when things are likely to work out in your favour. It may be that a door opens or an opportunity presents itself. This may be because you’ve already laid the groundwork or because your optimistic spirit has worked its magic. Keep doing what you’re doing; focussing on where you want to be, this could be a really productive and inspiring period.
Scorpio 24 Oct - 22 Nov Happy Birthday, Scorpio. “Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.” Florence Scovel Shinn. If you need to know the way forward, it may be time to get quiet and listen to the gentle voice within. Intuition never shouts so you need to be tuned in enough to notice subtle feelings in your body. Don’t be surprised if your motivation is at a low in October; this is because it’s time to step back a little from the fray and rest your body, mind and spirit. Towards the end of the month your confidence will return and November especially, is good for new starts and for reassessing your trajectory.
Capricorn 22 Dec - 20 Jan “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” Ralph Waldo Emerson offers a clue as to the nature of success, whether that’s success in the outside world or personal matters and creative projects. October is a great month to declare your intention to the universe and to start the ball rolling, even if you can’t see how it could manifest. Sometimes we have to have faith that things will work out. So whether you need to make a change in direction or to fulfil an ambition now is the time.
Aquarius 21 Jan - 18 Feb Adventure is the key word for October, making this a good month to explore new ideas, to visit new places, meet new people and generally try to leave your comfort zone behind in some small way. We can all get stuck in our ruts and routines, but it’s important to periodically break out of them to give us a new perspective on life. So make the most of any opportunity to see the world in a new way. November is a good month to focus on your direction and to reassess where you’re going. A change of some sort might be required?
Pisces 19 Feb - 20 Mar “All great changes are preceded by chaos.” – Deepak Chopra. If something isn’t working, from a situation to a relationship, a certain amount of courage will be needed to confront the matter and change it into something better. And if that’s not possible, it may be better to let it go. Keep in mind the image of a snake shedding its skin, for that is most likely the solution to any problem currently niggling away at you. Let go of the old and the unworkable, and then you may find that November brings a great sense of adventure and expansion.
Aries 21 Mar - 20 Apr “You will find, as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.” - Henry Drummond. October is all about partnerships and the way in which you come across to others. With Mars influencing things you could easily come on too strong which may result in conflict. Whilst this is good if you need to stand up for your rights, remembering to bring love and kindness to your words and deeds will ultimately win you more friends and pacify your foes.
Taurus 21 Apr - 21 May Work and health are the key areas for autumn and you should find that you have the motivation to get lots done and make improvements to either one of these areas. For example, you could benefit from looking at your daily habits to see if they are serving you. As Mike Murdock said, “The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” Once you’ve made headway in your daily life it will be time to focus on the personal side of life, as November is a good month to clear the air and improve connections with the people who matter.
Gemini 22 May- 21 June “It’s impossible,” said pride. “It’s risky,” said experience. It’s pointless,” said reason. “Give it a try,” whispered the heart. – Unknown. If you knew you couldn’t fail what would you do? This is the question to ponder as opportunities appear for a more heart-centred way of living. Whether it’s something you’ve always wanted to do or something that has cropped up more recently, now is the time to honour your feelings and do what feels right. November is a good time to get more on top of things.
Cancer 22 June - 22 July “The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.” - Confucius. Your family and domestic life take on extra importance in October making this the month to do whatever needs to be done to improve your home and make it a more satisfying and nurturing base for you and your loved ones. It’s ideal for clearing clutter and creating fresh new energies. Just keep an eye out for conflict, as things could get heated. Do whatever you can to create harmony and then go and enjoy yourself, which is what November is all about.
Leo 23 July - 23 Aug It’s time to put on your positive thinking hat as October calls for a more optimistic and proactive approach to life. As Zig Ziglar says, “Attitude, not Aptitude, determines Altitude.” By thinking big and aiming high; by having the courage of your convictions you will overcome the obstacles currently blocking your progress. So, don’t give up is the message for October, whilst November puts the emphasis on your home and family, making this the perfect month to attend to domestic matters and get your home as you would like it.
Virgo 24 Aug - 22 Sept “Don't tell me where your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I'll tell you what they are.” James W. Frick. Is your money working for you? Do you need more of it or do you need to spend less? Do you need to examine your priorities? Whatever the situation, October offers financial solutions and it may be that the answer is staring you in the face and that you have more power than you think when it comes to changing your situation. Perhaps all that’s needed is a dose of self belief and a little bit of motivation.
