Cosmic Diaries: October Monthly Horoscopes 2016
— by Priya Kale
ARIES – October brings you a glimpse into life over the coming year with Jupiter passing through Libra your opposite sign. As you enter the month, you’re starting a new cycle in all your one-to-one relationships, especially one significant relationship — asking that you find a balance between your needs and others. The choices you make early in the month are setting in motion a chain of events that come to a head with the Full Moon, which brings unexpected developments. This is your chance to start off on the right foot so situations can flourish. Be honest with yourself and others — then there can be a sense of a breakthrough, rather than any unpleasant surprises. What do you want? How do you feel? What motivates you? You cannot make someone love you, or control another, or an outcome; but you choose where you feed energy and invest your time, money, love and resources. As Khalil Gibran wrote: “And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.” It comes down to honest communication and win-win arrangements. Ask for what you need and let go of expectations — then pay attention to who steps up to the plate. Professionally, your ambitions are evolving asking you to let go of those you’ve outgrown. There are new opportunities presenting themselves and changes on the horizon: perhaps a change of job or even a promotion. You needn’t justify your choices to anyone, nor do you need to uphold any “image.” Just be conscious not to chase false ideals of success or cut your nose to spite your face. A true leader is one who inspires support, while treating everyone as equals. Stay true to your integrity, and you can live life by your rules and come out on top, with partners cheering you every step of the way.
TAURUS – You have an incredible opportunity this month to start over as you create a whole new life, if that is what you wish for; or heal a situation or relationship that affects your whole life and well being, so you feel more supported by it. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but if you work at something daily, you can make huge strides this month towards finding a work-life balance. With planets stacked in your house of health, work, and daily routines — expect a busy month, so use your time wisely. Make sure you aren’t burning the candle at both ends; and schedule in down-time (if you have to) to play, smell the roses and be inspired. A relationship too is highlighted this month; and there are unpredictable developments unfolding mid-month, asking you to keep your perspective. You may not be sure how you feel about someone or something; or ready to reveal your feelings and deeper desires yet. Still it’s important now that become aware of and acknowledge your subconscious fears, desires, abandonment issues, what motivates you in your choices — as well as your needs for healing, peace and harmony. Ultimately there is only ONE relationship in your life that you need to be concerned about and that’s your relationship with your innermost self. Strengthen that, then you can make healthier choices as you create the life of your dreams. You needn’t fear being judged for your choices, and it’s important you not prematurely judge a situation that could hold solid potential. You may not be sure of the best way forward, and things may be up in the air; but take things one day at a time and allow the dust to settle. Be willing to learn and you will learn what you need to know, clearing the path for what’s real, true and fills your life with meaning, purpose, and love. You have one life — reach for the stars.

October marks the beginning of a year, and journey, of discovery of a deeper truth about your heart. You’re birthing something profound — you could be starting a new project, having a baby, falling in love (perhaps all over again) with someone, yourself and life itself. It might feel like a risk to be vulnerable, but as long as you are being honest with yourself, you needn’t fear losing your balance. Unexpected developments unfolding mid-month in a friendship, social situation or close personal relationship, bringing you to a moment of truth, pushing your boundaries asking you to trust. The more emotionally detached you can be, you can respond consciously in a balanced way. You’ve been burned before but, the present is not the past, and life is too short to waste living in fear. Stay in the present, and first be honest with yourself about your desires, fears, and what you want out of life, love, work, your relationships, and how you want to feel at the end of each day. You need not cling to anyone, anything, be anyone you are not, or worry about looking like a fool — those that love you, will love you anyway. And you have friends who would take a bullet for you if it came down to it. Trust, what falls apart needs to, so it can come back together in a way that is more balanced way — or clear the way for what is truly valuable. Also, when you give, do you give from the heart, or with expectations of what you will get back? You cannot control anyone else, you cannot make anyone love you, and you can’t always please everyone. Be kind, loving, fair, creative, let go of the need to be right and you can be happy. What you want and can have is the freedom to be and express yourself more wholly (emotionally, sexually, creatively, personally), rather than swinging to either extreme. Then you can deepen relationships that love you for you and you share values with. That really is the big lesson for you over the coming year — to discover your inner sense of wholeness. You’re sowing the seeds of love this month and what you set in motion now can only blossom and bloom over the coming year. Love yourself, even the parts you consider less desirable. You’re creating your life in every moment, with every choice, word and deed. Love and life, both come with risks. But the rewards far outweigh the gamble, nd you have everything to play for now.
CANCER – A New Moon in Libra, with Jupiter transiting there, marks a month and a year that sees you growing in sense of comfort, security — emotional and financial, and most importantly a sense of inner peace. First ask yourself — what brings you security? What was your childhood like? What are your relationships with your family like? If there has been a rift, you can now resolve issues so there is greater harmony. You are juggling a lot at home and work, and it’s important you are able to come home to peace, quiet and a place you can rest. Unpredictable developments in a professional situation or partnership come to light mid-month demanding your attention. Whatever challenge comes your way, you can not only rise to meet it, but this is your moment to shine. It will call for a balancing act, so its important you have both feet on the ground. Especially in any situation pushes your boundaries, or challenges your authority — be wise, remain humble and you can reach a breakthrough. You’re moving past your childhood ambitions, parents limitations, going perhaps where no one has gone before. It might mean you make a few radical choices; and you may not be sure how this will be received. This isn’t a popularity contest. As long as you are being authentic and honest, trust those that see your vision will back you up. You have have family and people who love and want to support you, and have the skills to do so. But you need to let go of control, delegate and trust them to do what they do best. Avoid chasing success, power struggles, or manipulating a situation to get ahead; or it could get very lonely at the top. Remember the reason you do what you do in the world, the relationships you value the most, and those who have helped you along the way to get to where you are — your blood and soul family. Then it will be easier for you to let go of what doesn’t matter, stay balanced, as you make choices that stabilise a situation, restore your sense of inner peace and free you to be comfortable in your skin. You can only fail if you never try. And if you try you could, surprise even yourself as you achieve what some might consider wildly impossible but to you is child’s play. Free yourself to be yourself.
LEO – You have a lot on your mind, and life is bringing you to a cross-roads in October, asking you to make huge life-changing decisions. You’re not trapped in a hopeless situation by any means; in fact there is plenty to hope for, you have attractive options and there are new opportunities arising — asking you to gain fresh perspective as begin the month. It all comes down to a calm, balanced approach, detachment and honest communication — especially mid-month as you learn something rather mind-blowing, bringing you to a moment of truth. If something or someone pushes your buttons, pause; and if you need time to think — ask for it. Keep your cool, and you can reclaim your power and sanity. You have a chance now to clear the air, resolve differences and move forward with more balanced, fair agreements in a relationship, or arrangement where there has been tension. If you suppress truth to keep peace, resentment builds, and comes out in less than desirable ways. Also remember, how you say something matters as much as what you say. In all conversations, speak and listen — so everyone feels heard and you can learn what you need to know, allowing you to make wise, informed decisions that free you from an unpredictable, perhaps toxic situation, that has affected your whole life. It might even help to seek advice from an objective source (depending on the issue, perhaps this could be a lawyer, therapist, astrologer or counsellor) who is emotionally detached from a situation but invested in you; who can help you gain perspective on what’s important. You’re at the start of a new cycle, asking you to open your mind, be imaginative, creative and think big — as you envision the most optimistic vision for the future. The truth will always set you free. Start by being honest with yourself and you can make choices that support your vision, stabilise a situation and go a long way towards securing your future emotionally and materially. What separates you and another isn’t as wide a divide as you think, and you can bridge it with love. Be kind, fair, think win-win, and you can negotiate arrangements that everyone feels comfortable in. Most importantly what unfolds now has the potential to bringing you peace of mind that you so desperately want.
VIRGO –October marks the beginning of a year, when you’re growing in emotional and financial security. It starts with you being very honest with yourself about your values. How you value yourself, is what will determine the value of the relationships and finances you attract. So what do you value? Whom do you value? Why? What do you value in a relationship? What do you need to feel safe and like you can trust another? There are unpredictable developments taking place mid-month, taking you to the edge in a marriage, sexual and or financial partnership/situation. As out of control as you might feel, far from it. You can’t control another, but in your life at least, you get to make the choices. Remain emotionally detached in an evolving situation and you can reclaim your power. Also, acknowledge your attachments to sex, money, commitment, having a relationship for the sake of it; fears of abandonment, betrayal and attachments to an outcome and what keeps you hooked to a situation. In any tug-of-war, or power struggle, let go of the rope and it will be easier for things to find their natural equilibrium; allowing you to reach a breakthrough. Even if something feels like a stab in the heart or like a piece of you is dying — sometimes it’s better to cut your losses. Trust what’s falling apart needs to, so you can learn what truly matters to you in your heart of hearts, and is truly valuable in a situation. As you move through the month, invest in the relationships and situations you share values with. You have lot more to gain emotionally, tangibly and in terms of self-esteem than anything you fear losing. You are breaking through patterns of co-dependency and what’s unfolding is clearing the path for you to deepen equal, mutually beneficial relationships that truly value, and love, you for you.
LIBRA – Happy Birthday Libra! With a New Moon conjunct Jupiter in your sign and a Full Moon in your opposite sign this month, this is a very personal and powerful new beginning for you but there are unpredictable developments unfolding mid-month in a relationship or domestic partnership, asking that you keep your balance above all. It might seem like the world’s going crazy, and you’re at the center of all the action. You have a lot on your plate and the seeds you’re planting now, have the potential to bear solid fruit over the coming year. But it will require you to remain focused on your goals, keep the big picture in mind and not allow other people dramas to rattle you. You need not be the peace-maker, but do be the compassionate truth bearer. Still there are certain issues you cannot avoid and certain relationships that are coming to a head; pushing your boundaries asking you to trust. You’ve been burned before, and it can be scary to let someone into your inner world. But your experiences have taught you a lot, and you’re wiser for it. A situation is revealing an important truth to you about yourself, your desires, and who you are today. Learn from the past, but be honest with yourself about how you feel and what you need from a relationship to feel safe and to build trust. It will call for finding a balance with another, which is easier to do when you are feeling balanced and at peace. Then you can communicate honestly and negotiate arrangements that everyone can live with. Also if someone has proven their loyalty to you, then you can’t let past ghosts haunt and continue to hold you in their grip, and prevent you from living your life wholly. You have the power to choose who let in and how deep; and you can trust your own judgement. No matter what unfolds this month, be grateful for all you learn and don’t be afraid to ask for what you need. Just let go of expectations of where it comes from and pay attention to who shows up. Support might come from unexpected sources — but it is present — and you have people who are rooting for you. You’re learning who’s truly in your corner, whom you can count on when the chips are down. This is a month and year a time of self-discovery, that sees you blossoming and growing in awareness of your gifts, potential, and in wisdom.
SCORPIO – Every year, October marks a time for you to cocoon, before you resurrect and unfurl as the Sun enters your sign at the end of the month. Especially now with Jupiter newly in Libra, your 12th House, you’re being called to go inward as you dive into the mysteries of the Universe and your heart. You have a lot on your mind; and when you have your mind set on something, you can be like a dog with a bone. Work and life will always be demanding, but your health is a great indicator of whether you need to slow down; and its better you do this voluntarily rather than be forced. So it’s important you get plenty of rest, meditate, and have quiet time to contemplate and explore a vision that’s birthing in your soul. There are unpredictable developments unfolding mid-month, that will call for you to be in the drivers seat with both hands on the wheel. You needn’t run to put out every fire. And it would help your cause now to be a little more detached from all that’s unfolding, so you can focus on what’s most important and truly needs your attention. It might feel like you’re having to bite your tongue in some cases, but you have bigger fish to fry. You may not have all the answers yet, but you’re close to a breakthrough at work or in a situation; allowing you more freedom and ability to live life by your rules, doing work you feel most passionately about. You’re also becoming aware of your subconscious patterns, especially in relationships — and what has motivated your choices in the past. Acknowledge your desires and fears, even the ones you dare not reveal. You can hide the truth from the world, but not from yourself. As become clear about what you want, you can recognise your power and freedom, to make conscious, loving, creative choices, co-creating your reality with the Universe. You can live a life you dream of, but you have to dare to acknowledge it to yourself first. And whatever you’ve imagined for yourself, the Universe has imagined it a little bigger and better. Be guided by an inner truth, let go of perceptions — and you might find you already are living the life of your dreams.
SAGITTARIUS – Socially you have a full calendar this month, and there’s a huge opportunity arising, bringing you to a breakthrough you’ve been yearning for. Your ruler Jupiter recently changed signs to enter Libra, the part of your chart that represents your social circle, friends, hopes and ‘fulfillment’ of wishes. A grand hope you have for your life is not impossible or out of reach, and this month, you can make huge strides towards it. You’re meeting and connecting with people, friends, and people who can inspire you and you can learn from. But it’s also important that you not compare yourself to anyone, feel like you need to impress anyone or be anyone or anything you are not. Also, not all that glitters is gold, so its important you not get swept away by glamor or surface appearances, but get to know someone and their heart. Unexpected opportunities and developments arising mid-month, in a social situation or regarding a friendship, could catch you off-guard, perhaps even make your heart skip a beat. You may be surprised at the intensity of your feelings; you don’t have to act on everything you feel, but at least acknowledge it. You’re being revealed an important truth about yourself, desires, fears, and what you most desire in your heart of hearts. Often people choose second best for fear of disappointment; something you thought was wildly impossible is not. It will call for spontaneity, honesty and a willingness to take a risk. But if you are wise, remain detached, avoid compromising your values, or any desire to manipulate the truth, then you needn’t fear getting burned. You’ve always been free, you can only be yourself and you have one life. As you realise this truth — you can reclaim your power and be liberated to live your life on your terms.
CAPRICORN — As you enter October, all eyes are on you and you’re at the top of your game. You’re at the start of a new cycle professionally, planting seeds for something that can only grow over the coming year as Jupiter moves through your Libra. So what are your goals? You are not who you were yesterday, let alone a year ago, so it’s important you recognise (childhood) ambitions you’ve evolved from; and those that you never thought possible but can be. This is not about your public image, but about all you have to offer this world — so stay aligned with a soul-vision. As the Full Moon aligns mid-month, there are unpredictable developments unfolding in a family or domestic situation, calling your attention. There might even be a sudden move on the cards for some of you, perhaps work-related. It will call for you to keep your balance, as you juggle all that’s up in the air. Pay attention to what needs your attention most; the rest can and will wait till you get to it. You have responsibilities, but you also have a life; and you have the power and authority to delegate and let go of controlling everything because you feel out of control. Remember the past is not the present and you are not a child anymore. Whatever triggers your insecurities the more you can consciously release the past, especially perhaps a traumatic, painful event that has kept you caged in fear, you can reclaim your power in your life. Keep your priorities in check, be in no denial, have faith in yourself and you can rise to a challenge. You have a huge opportunity now to make wise choices that benefit you and all those that you care about, freeing you to chase your dreams.
AQUARIUS — October is inviting you to expand your mind. There’s new hope dawning and hopefully you can see now you aren’t trapped, and have more than one attractive option to choose from. Dare to think big, use your imagination and be creative as you visualise your most optimistic vision for the future. It might not be as impossible as you think, and your journey this month is taking you closer to a cherished ambition. Also remember this is a process of discovery — explore your options, rather than be too attached to a particular outcome. You’re learning information mid-month that could be a game-changer, asking you to keep an open mind. There may be unexpected news arising, or a conversation you have that blows your mind, or at the very least leaves you a little speechless. If though anything has you feeling angry or upset, this is your cue to pause, take a deep breath and get some perspective, before you react or say something you later regret. You’re becoming aware of your subconscious desires, fears, attachments to success, or expectations of failure that keep you trapped in your fears and expressing yourself wholly. You’re also becoming aware of subconscious motivations that have in the past controlled your choices. The whole world need not know your business, but still its important that you are honest with yourself and with partners at least on a need to know basis. There is a way forward and you have more freedom in a situation than you think. Consciously let go of all assumptions, move beyond your perceptions. Something you thought was impossible isn’t. It will ask you to take call for a leap of faith, but be wise, far-sighted, and choose based on your most hopeful and optimistic vision. Keep your eye on the prize and remember the truth will always set you free.
PISCES – What are you worth? Who or what defines your worth? And what do you most value? A deeply personal, sexual and or financial situation is evolving and changing deeply; and there are unpredictable developments unfolding mid-month asking you to keep your balance. You might feel out of control and exposed in all this, but those who have nothing to hide, hide nothing. A professional situation too is evolving — success can be yours, but at what or whose cost? Be conscious not to cut your nose to spite your face; or manipulate a situation or truth to get ahead which will only back-fire. You need not engage in power-struggles; the more you let go and allow things to play out, the balance of power will shift and even out naturally and easily. Also acknowledge your attachments — to money, sex, power, or needing to be in control. What were your parents values surrounding sex, money and commitments? How are yours different? Become aware of your patterns, then you need not continue to repeat them. You have a lot to gain, but what’s important now is that you are true to yourself, integrity and your values — then you can align with others who share your values and form mutually beneficial partnerships, as well deepen intimacy in a relationship. And regardless of what you think, you have more to gain than any thing you fear losing. Be fair, kind, wise, remain detached, and you can rise from a situation that’s taken you to the abyss and still come out on top, smelling like roses.
