Happy October, brave Aries! At the end of September, you enjoyed smooth sailing in your relationships — if you were able to restrain from picking petty fights, that is. Not only are you the first sign of the zodiac but you are also a fire sign, so you love to get what you want. Relationships often require compromise, though. Thankfully, a new moon in Libra, the sign of partnerships, on Wednesday, October 6, provides an opportunity to smooth over any disagreements you may be experiencing with your partner, friends, or other loved ones.
Take advantage of this night's peaceful vibes to try something radical in your dating life. Let your crush or significant other be in charge of picking your plans for the night, even if it's just what to have for dinner or which movie to watch. If you're single, well, jump for joy because you get to watch and eat whatever the hell you want.
On this same date, Pluto, the planet of transformation, goes direct in ambitious Capricorn — bringing much-deserved confidence in your professional life. While it was in retrograde since Tuesday, April 27, you worked on letting go of unnecessary fear. Because you have no problem saying what's on your mind, people often assume you're the most confident sign under the stars. But your tendency to lash out can also arise from insecurities. When Pluto goes direct, you should feel a reassuring surge of confidence and find it easier to not let anyone else's opinion scare you right now. This transit will also help you compromise with coworkers and be present with the ones you love.
Compromising on what movie to watch is one thing, but beware of giving up who you are for love.
The next day, on Thursday, October 7, Venus, the planet of romance, enters wild child Sagittarius and your 9th House of Philosophy. During this time, you must face reality, particularly when it comes to your love life. For instance, if you want children but have been pretending that you don't care because your partner doesn't, you need to start honoring your truth. Too many people are out there for you to settle for a life that isn't for you. Compromising on what movie to watch is one thing, but beware of giving up who you are for love.
On Sunday, October 10, Saturn also ends its retrograde, where it has been since Sunday, May 23. Saturn is the task maker of the zodiac and rules self-discipline, restriction, and authority. While the ringed planet was retrograde, you were asked to create boundaries, especially around socialization. Initially, like so many of us, you may have struggled to find a balance between seeing friends and staying safe in a post-vaccine world. In the process, you may have withdrawn from your usual social scenes. When Saturn goes direct, you're able to better implement those boundaries and get your social life back in order while living in accordance with your own comfort.
You notice happiness in unexpected places, such as an email from your boss that applauds your efforts.
The planets aren't done getting back in line yet. Lucky planet Jupiter, which has been retrograde since Sunday, June 20, goes direct on Sunday, October 17. During Jupiter's retrograde, you focused on finding joy in your professional life. When the planet goes direct this month, you continue to notice happiness in unexpected places, such as an email from your boss that applauds your efforts and even new monetary opportunities. You'll realize plenty of happiness has been around you all along, and if you're not feeling it, you have options. When Mercury ends its retrograde and goes direct on Tuesday, October 19, communication in your professional life becomes even smoother too, but continue to always read the fine print before you sign new contracts.
Mark Wednesday, October 20 on your calendar, because a powerful full moon will be in your sign. This lunation brings good news to your love life. Perhaps your partner is on the same page as you after all. Maybe you'll get a message from a crush expressing their own romantic feelings. When Scorpio season begins on Saturday, October 23, your sex life comes alive with passion, plenty of orgasms, and people who share the same desires and fantasies as you.
Of course, to find suitable partners, you have to be ready to advocate for yourself. Recognizing what you want and then stating those needs clearly comes along with that. When your ruling planet, warrior Mars, enters secretive Scorpio on Saturday, October 30, you may be tempted to act passive-aggressive and manipulative — don't give in. Lean in on self-care techniques to keep your confidence up. You have to ask for what you want, Aries. You can do it. See you in November!
Incorporate a new, versatile serum, like the Versine Gentle Actives Clarity Crème-Serum + Azelaic Acid, into your skin-care routine to help make it more of a self-care ritual and less of a chore. You'll find taking care of your skin's health can not only be incredibly soothing but also may motivate you to take care of yourself in other ways too.
