Horoscopes October 2014

  • Aquarius

    Jan 20—Feb 18

    (Jan 20—Feb 18)
    The Oct 8 full “hunter’s moon” is aptly named, as laid-back water bearers must prepare for a fight at work. No, Aquarians won’t need to go all Katniss in a meeting. Instead, speak up and don’t let a co-worker take credit for a collaboration. Water Cooler Games can be just as vicious as Hunger Games.

  • Aries

    March 21—April 19

    (March 21—April 19)
    Uranus is the alarm clock of the cosmos, delivering wake-up calls to signs that have lost their way. Too easily swayed by family members, Aries must stick to their guns on the 19th. A new era of strength is dawning—and it’s time for rams to rise and greet it.

  • Cancer

    June 21—July 22

    (June 21—July 22)
    Cancers should rejoice at the thought of a bit less emotion this month. Friends and relatives have been crazy needy, but crisp fall winds have a calming effect on the yentas, harpies and drama queens in crabs’ lives. October is brought to Cancers by the sound of sweet, sweet silence.

  • Capricorn

    Dec 22—Jan 19

    (Dec 22—Jan 19)
    Pluto has big plans for Capricorn, which is why it’s staying until 2023. By then, we’ll probably be able to read horoscopes on the back of our retinas, but for now, live in the moment. Caps won’t need Google Glass to see an exciting opportunity present itself on the 7th.

  • Gemini

    May 21—June 20

    (May 21—June 20)
    When the moon is void it sets off a cosmic traffic jam full of false starts and endless stops. As a result, signs involved shouldn’t begin or end major projects until the big cheese has proven more dependable. For Gems, the witching hour is actually a full day, from Oct 10 to 11.

  • Leo

    July 23—Aug 22

    (July 23— Aug 22)
    Lions may feel like they’ve lost their roar, and since Katy Perry is busy, Jupiter is stepping in to help. It enters on the 8th, bringing a dose of optimism to turn collective lion frowns upside down. The bright side may feel elusive, but it’s only a paw’s length away.

  • Libra

    Sept 23—Oct 22

    (Sept 23—Oct 22)
    When Venus enters on the 3rd it lifts burdens that have weighed down weary scales. The planet transfers her easy, breezy qualities to Libras until the 22nd. Have no fear: Calming Mercury extends the period of inner-peace from the 30th through November. Ommm—emergency averted!

  • Pices

    Feb 19—March 20

    (Feb 19—March 20)
    The bright side of Neptune in Pisces? An influx of creativity. The dark side? A tendency to get a bit delusional. Don’t fall for a fair-weather friend’s false promises on the 19th. Instead, dream up some great plans for pals who are there through whatever Al Roker forecasts.

  • Sagittarius

    Nov 22—Dec 21

    (Nov 22—Dec 21)
    Patience may be a virtue, but it’s not one that Mars is interested in. Prepare to feel restless when it enters on the 4th. Instead of succumbing to distraction, channel extra energy into a hobby or project that’s been brushed under the rug. Though dusty, it will bring tons of joy.

  • Scorpio

    Oct 23—Nov 21

    (Oct 23—Nov 21)
    Since Saturn is a sign squatter—it won’t leave Scorpio until 2015—this is a perfect time to stop and smell the relationship problems. On the 19th, a toxic friendship will start to stink... and it’s finally time to take out the trash.

  • Taurus

    April 20—May 20

    (April 20—May 20)
    Though Mercury is in retrograde for much of October, it’s only acting all Single Gray Planet on the 4th. To avoid its famous wrath, wait until month’s end to decide on big-ticket purchases, and don’t sign on any dotted lines. Oh, and if anyone named Hedra wants to be pals...run!

  • Virgo

    Aug 23—Sept 22

    (Aug 23—Sept 22)
    October brings Halloween, but Neptune, Uranus and Pluto want Virgos to get in the Valentine’s Day spirit really early. They stay in Virgos’ romance sector as gentle reminders not to neglect matters of the heart. A life without love? Now that’s spookier than any costume.
