October 2021 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview

As we welcome in the first official month of flannels, hot cocoa, and cool autumn nights, we also make way for a creative and transformative month of new beginnings as we begin to slow down and settle into a calmer period in our lives. With that said, this month, we’ll kick off October in the sign of the social and charming Libra. With this focused and determined air sign guiding the way through the month, it’s going to turn our attention towards creating balance in our lives. Because of this, Libra’s independent energy will have us majorly examining our boundaries in order to find our place of perfect stability, especially in our relationships. This, alongside the planet of love, Venus, transitioning into Sagittarius within the first week of the month, will encourage us to open up more to others and develop deeper romantic connections, which will linger as one of the biggest themes this month.

Aside from this, while October is overall expected to bring a more laid-back energy than the past couple of months we’ve had, all signs are still going to experience some challenges as we work through Mercury retrograde yet again, as it is notorious for stirring up delays and miscommunication. However, contrary to popular belief, Mercury’s influence isn’t all bad. In fact, because of Mercury retrograde, we will also get a chance to re-examine things from our past this month and finally cut cords to them to find our true happiness. This, above all else, will be a huge period of rebirth and renewal for many of the signs and will help them to truly call back their divine power. Following this, we will then hit the Scorpio season on the 23rd of this month, where this energy is bound to take even more of a mischievous and self-righteous turn, so get ready for some major personal power to take the spotlight towards the end of the month. 

Above all else, this will be a powerful month for learning patience, finding closure from the past, and moving forward once and for all. But to give you some insight into what you can expect to feel personally, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout the month of October and how you can truly make the most of it. 

 Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Starting with the Aries, the month of October is expected to bring an inspired burst of energy into your space. With the influence of Mars in your partnership sector, your personal life is going to take priority this month, and you’re expected to be quite busy in both your social life and your professional life as a result. And because of the unparalleled focus you’re feeling right now, you will likely be able to reach new heights and see some major personal achievements now within reach, which will have you feeling truly unstoppable. Above all else, change is on the horizon for you this month, Aries. You just have to be sure to navigate it intuitively and carefully in order to get to where you want to be. 

In your career, the month of October is predicted to bring positive opportunities for finances to those in the workplace. Thanks to the current planetary positions, things are expected to be beneficial in your progress in work, which will keep you feeling confident and keep the workplace beaming. You’re killing it right now, Aries. Keep up the great work. 

In love, those in a relationship are likely to face some problems with their partner this month due to the backward influence of Mercury retrograde, which could set the tone for some arguments and misunderstandings. More than anything, there’s likely to be a few heated conversations regarding money and a lot of pointing fingers. It’s going to be frustrating, Aries, but do your best to avoid the topic of it in general until things simmer down between the planets. If you are single, you are likely to have multiple opportunities for new love this month, but you may be unsure of which route to go. Don’t worry; this isn’t anything that requires an immediate response, so take some time to do some reflection on the subject for better clarity. If necessary, you can always seek the advice of family and friends, as they may be able to offer valuable insight.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20):

For the Taurus, October is predicted to be a month of positive shifts for you. Thanks to the lucky influence of Jupiter in your achievement sector, you are likely to experience abundance and forward movement in your space like never before. Therefore get ready to reap some major rewards and walk through some new doors this month, dear Taurus, as change is coming in hot and is likely to hang around your life for quite a while. However, with that said, this is also not a time to get lazy and drag your feet. You have to put in the work to reap the rewards, and this month is here to remind you of that. Above all else, do what you can to find a balance of work and play this month, and you are bound to be successful. 

In your career, while there is an abundance of luck surrounding your job this month, there is likely to also be some frustration and confusion. This is due to Mercury retrograde’s influence, which will likely be stirring up some miscommunication and mental fog. Because of this, relationships with colleagues and management will be a little unpredictable and could leave you feeling like you’re walking on glass. Try not to let it get to you, Taurus. Taking part in fun activities outside of the workplace may help you regain your footing and let off some steam to create a more positive mental state overall. 

In love, those in a relationship may struggle to see eye-to-eye this month,  which could feel like it’s driving a wedge between you two. However, it doesn’t have to be this way, and you can certainly mend it with proper communication and compromise. If you put in the work, harmony is surely just around the corner. If you are single, you’re likely to be a little hesitant in pursuing love this month but will gradually begin to channel more confidence as time progresses. Allow your intuition to guide you, Taurus, and we can assure you, you will be just fine.  

 Gemini (May 21 - June 20):

For the Gemini, October is expected to bring an inspired period of forwarding movement. With lucky Jupiter influencing your sector of expansion, your personal life is likely to be beaming with opportunities for new adventures. Keeping an open mind is key this month; therefore, if you’ve wanted to revisit an old passion, job, or hobby, now is an excellent time to pick it up again, and you are likely to have great success in doing so. Overall, October is looking up, Gemini, especially compared to the last few months you’ve had, so make sure you take time to enjoy yourself. You certainly deserve it. 

In your career, October is predicted to be a productive and efficient month of accomplishing tasks. While you will certainly be working hard and getting a lot done this month, you aren’t likely to reap any huge rewards in the workplace. However, you’ll still be feeling pretty good with the work you do get done, so this isn’t bound to cause you any mental strain. Therefore, keeping your working steady without overworking yourself will be the main key this month if you want to keep both your focus and your energy rejuvenated for the future. 

In love, this is likely to be a spicy and adventurous month for the Gemini, and you are certainly ready for it. With both Mars, the planet of desire, and Venus, the planet of love, influencing you this month, your relationship is likely to be soaring with lust and wonder. This will have you feeling content above all else and will create a sentimental bonding period for you and your partner. If you are single this month, you may be lacking confidence in pursuing new love this month, as you may have been out of the game for a while. However, you shouldn’t doubt yourself, Gemini. Your charisma is beaming, and now would be an excellent time to put it to use. Go out on a limb and try something new this month, air sign. After all, what do you really have to lose? 

Cancer (June 21 - July 22):

For the Cancer, October is predicted to be a month of healing and growth for you. With the current planetary shifts influencing your emotions and love matters, this will be an excellent month to heal from past relationships and any emotional scarring they may have caused you. Aside from this, you are likely to use this month as a time of reconnecting with family and loved ones and may even find yourself to be more social than you have in a while. Overall, October is predicted to be a positive month where you finally call back your personal power and embrace the divine being that you are. This is your time to shine, and you are truly radiating. Enjoy it as much as possible, dear Cancer.

For those in a relationship, this is an excellent month to connect deeper with your partner, and due to this romantic mood you’re in, you are likely to find yourself feeling blissful, balanced, and fulfilled in all matters of love, which is something truly special.

For the Leo, October is predicted to bring a variety of new opportunities to expand and create. From new inspiring thoughts in your creative endeavors to brainstorming new career avenues, this month will have your mind spinning with possibilities and will have you feeling more in control of your future more than ever.

Increased communication will pave the way for deeper connections, better loyalty, and an all-around better atmosphere between you and your partner. If you’ve been looking for a chance to take things to the next level, now is an excellent time to do so.  If you are single, with the influence of lustful Venus, love will come effortlessly, and you are bound to have many new opportunities to get into relationships this month. However, if you’re looking for something that will truly last, make sure you take it slow, mighty Leo. There’s no need to rush.  

Virgo (August 23 - September 22):

For the Virgo, October is expected to direct you towards all aspects of growth, and you’re likely to shift your focus toward change in all areas of your life. Your mind is expanding, and so is your point of view on the boundaries you set for yourself in the past. You are starting to realize anything is possible, and it is a truly beautiful thing to see.

With your newfound enthusiastic and optimistic attitude, now is an excellent time to start laying out the foundation for new endeavors and ideas and get a jump on them.

Just remember to go with the flow this month, Libra, and don’t fight the current. If you do that, you should be just fine. 

In your career, you will be inspired in the workplace and have many new ideas for how to make bigger strides in your career.

Be bold and adventurous, Cap; it may prove to be one of the best things you’ll ever do in love. 

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18):

For the Aquarius, this autumnal month of October is predicted to be a transitional period of slow but steady work. While you are likely to be feeling motivated in many aspects of your life, it just doesn’t seem like the planets are in your favor right now to achieve all that you set out to do in terms of future goals. For this reason, instead of trying to fight the current, it might instead be a good month to work through any past energies and problems you may be holding onto in order to keep your head balanced. You’ll get to where you need to be soon, Aquarius, you may just have to put some more tedious work in before you get there, but it will pay off in the long run. 

In your career, you’re likely to experience some minor ups and downs in the workplace this month, which could leave you feeling irritable and unfocused.

Don’t lose your focus. 

In love, for those in a relationship, October is expected to bring an exciting new period of bliss into your space. With both Venus and Mercury influencing you, you’ll feel a desire to spend more time with your partner than you have in a while, and there will thankfully be plenty of time for it this month. Be sure to plan some date nights with your beloved this month to make the most of it. If you are single, due to the steamy love influence from the planets, this will be an excellent month for attracting someone new and exciting. Your confidence will truly be on fire right now, Aquarius, so you shouldn’t have any problem winning anyone over.

Pisces (February 19 - March 10):

And finally, for the Pisces, October is likely to bring a focus towards your finances and personal endeavors. Now more than ever, you’ll be feeling a need to put a focus on personal development as you continue to grow through this ambitious period. To go along with this, your intuition is going to be growing as we move further through the autumn season, and you are advised to dedicate some time to develop it further, as it will truly be a guiding light leading you towards your destiny. Overall, October will be a month full of a variety of energies, but more than anything, it will certainly be enlightening like no other. Spend some time with yourself in a quiet meditative space to truly make the most of what it has to offer.

In your career, the month of October is predicted to be quite favorable for the Pisces. While there are likely to be some ups and downs this month, you are likely to receive the recognition you deserve from your superiors, as well as several opportunities to increase your finances at your job. However, with that said, you may have some issues with your coworkers and should do all that you can to avoid drama with them as much as possible. 

In love, if you are in a relationship, you are likely to grow closer with your partner and develop a stronger connection with them than you have before. Because of this, this is a great time to have deeper conversations with your partner and truly pick their mind about anything and everything in this world, as it is likely to bring you two mentally closer.

This will help you to find a much more authentic connection with them and will likely prove to be quite fulfilling.


In conclusion, October is expected to bring a calm month of positive energy, alignment, and growth as we ease into a slower and cozier period in our lives. Allow the energy of this cool autumnal month to guide you through these sacred and intuitive changes as we all work to better connect ourselves with our divine source.
