What’s your October 2021 horoscope? Astrologer Linda Joyce reveals what’s in store for you based on your zodiac sign.
October 2021 begins with the Sun and Mars conjunct – a combination that provides an extra dose of energy, something we all need. If you’ve felt held back, this is the time to set your goals and see yourself where you want to be. Things are starting to move. Mercury trine Jupiter brings wisdom and the ability to expand through new ideas. Whatever you do, don’t let fear take the lead. Mercury is retrograde and goes direct on the 19th at 10 degrees of Libra. October will challenge your relationships and your truth.
So don’t be surprised if love from your past has reemerged. Retrogrades are all the past, not the future. It’s a great time to complete old projects or clean out your desk or closet.
The Full Moon in Aries on the 20th may alter the vision you had as to where you were going. If we can depend on anything now, it’s change. Don’t rely on what you thought your life was, be present in the now and adjust. What’s important to you may have changed. Do you feel confused? Then take some time to decide. This is a crazy month with three significant planets going direct within days of each other. Pluto goes direct on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th. Whatever you do, don’t book important meetings on those days – too much chaos. The Sun trine Saturn provides some support.
There is a strong sense of what needs to get done and in what order. Stay centered, and don’t let others influence you. Neptune trine Venus keeps your imagination strong and the desire to connect with others essential. This month will reward those who are not afraid of taking a risk. Listen to your instincts and go for what you want. If you do, the results may surprise you.
October 2021 Horoscope for Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
Aries love being out front and first. You are the visionaries of the universe. With Mars conjunct the Sun in Libra, you’re defining your truth and separating those who are with you from those who are not. It’s important to know who you can depend on. The challenge of life is to listen to your truth and stand by it. Never put aside your beliefs for those of others. Mercury goes direct on the 19th in Libra, your house of relationships.
Don’t be surprised if someone from your past resurfaces and contacts you. Retrogrades are when old issues get resolved, or we see the past in a new light. Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter go direct this month within days of each other, making life a bit chaotic. You won’t feel in control of what’s going on, so don’t hold on. Let things flow. You’ll have your chance to make things happen, but only after the planets are all repositioned on the 18th. Be prepared for a month of shifts and changes.
Jupiter in Aquarius brings you new friends and a chance to express your individuality in a way you haven’t in the past. Coming into your truth is a significant shift towards greater power. Own who you are, and the world pays attention. The Full Moon on the 20th in your sign brings personal issues to a head. Pay attention to the challenge that arises. There is truth in what’s revealed.
If you’re in a relationship, your partner may need space to get their life together. We’re all reorganizing ourselves, and patience is necessary. If you’re single, you may be too idealistic or needy to make a good decision, mainly when it deals with love. Have patience, and you’ll get what you want.
October 2021 Horoscope for Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)
Taurus knows how to get into trouble faster than any other sign. It’s the shadow that fascinates you, which also represents the unknown. This is a talent when you are cautious and discriminating. When you follow your desires without using common sense, it leads to trouble. Self-control brings you the magic. Add the ability to express the depth of your feelings and wisdom. Then others look up to you. Have confidence and listen to both your heart and mind.
Mercury has been retrograde and goes direct on the 19th in Libra, or your 6th house of work. You may have to concentrate on what’s not finished. That’s what retrogrades do. They get things done–think of those tasks that have been on your desk forever. With three planets going direct this month: Pluto on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th, there will be a bumpy road. When a significant planet goes direct or retrograde, there is often chaos because nothing happens the way you’ve planned.
The Full Moon in Aries on the 27th sparks your unconscious, so be ready to be surprised. With Venus, your ruler, in square to Neptune the first week of the month, your common sense is not working – you’re living too much in your fantasies, at least for a week. If you have serious decisions to make, postpone them until after the 9th.
If you’re in a relationship, your partner is a bit isolated, they want their privacy, and they want attention. Don’t get invested in making them happy for now. It’s not possible. If you’re single, it will be challenging to meet new people this month. Enjoy your friends and remind yourself everything happens at the right time.
October 2021 Horoscope for Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Gemini is a sign of diversity and the desire to experiment with new ideas. You can quickly get bored. If you’re not busy, you lose interest in whatever is going on. The danger is the loss of quiet time. Everyone needs a few moments to turn inward and listen to themselves. Otherwise, your life is directed entirely by the outer world and now what lies in your heart and soul. Saturn square Uranus is changing the structure of your life as well as your ideals.
You can’t rely on what was, create a new safety zone and rethink what turns you on. Neptune rules your 10th house of career, and so faith is essential to your success. The more you are clear on what you want, the easier it is to get it. With Mercury, your ruler is retrograde until the 19th. Go with the flow and realize not everything will turn out the way you’ve planned. However, once Mercury goes direct, you’ll be able to know what to expect and what you can count on.
With three significant planets going direct this month, there’s a certain amount of chaos that happens around the day each of them changes directions. Pluto goes direct on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th, so avoid making important decisions or scheduling meetings on those days. The Full Moon in Aries on the 27th happens in your 11th house of friends and clubs. There’s a chance someone close to you will be in a crisis. Be supportive.
If you’re in a relationship, your partner will not have their feet on the ground. There are issues to solve, and they’ll find their way. Just get out of their way and let them do it. If you’re single, you will have trouble connecting to someone you want to. Don’t push –let go. There’s a suitable time for everything.
October 2021 Zodiac for Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Cancers don’t express themselves with words. Their emotions translate into creative endeavors. The Moon, your ruler, is in a constant state of change, and so it’s vital that you identify with that part of you that never changes, your spirit, which is always with you. With the Sun in Libra conjunct Mars, you feel energized, confident, and eager to get things done.
With Venus in Scorpio, you see more clearly exactly what is happening and what needs to get done. Clarity is a gift of the gods, so don’t dismiss it – use it. Venus trine Neptune adds faith and confidence to your aura, so take that risk, start that project, or change your job. You can do whatever you set your mind to, but you must believe.
The Full Moon in Aries on the 20th and your 11th house brings relationships with friends to your attention. If a friend is in need, give your emotional support, and they’ll never forget it. With three significant planets going direct in October, there will be breakthroughs along with chaos, so don’t count on much happening the way you have planned. Pluto stations direct on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th. Circle those dates and leave them free. Mercury went retrograde last month and went direct on the 18th, the same day Jupiter goes direct. Things will start moving quickly, so prepare yourself for it. Know what needs to be done, and have items in order. It will feel good after all the restraint you have to demand of yourself.
If you’re in a relationship, your partner may not be the best communicator at the moment, so have patience. If you’re single, you could meet someone in all the chaos, but it’s up to you to recognize if it’s worth your patience and the chase.
October 2021 Horoscope for Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Leos are attention getters. They know how to be center stage. Their ruler, the Sun, is, after all, the center of our universe, so of course, they’re comfortable in this position. With the Sun in Libra conjunct Mars in your third house, communication is vital, and so are your opinions. There’s no way you’re not going to be heard. So, if you need others to listen to you, now is the time to speak up. Mercury goes direct on the 19th in Libra, and old issues can now be cleared up.
Financial matters may also improve. Uranus is still square Saturn making career and relationships challenging – only because they’re changing and not stable. It will continue this way for a few more months before it’s resolved. Your mission is to remain centered in yourself and not let the instability of the world around you throw you off your center. You will be fine, but you need to come from a place of faith.
The Full Moon on the 20th at 27 degrees of Aries makes a square to Pluto in your 6th house of work. Your goals are changing, and you may have to adjust to get what you want. With three significant planets going direct within days of each other, this month will be chaotic, so getting things done can be an issue. Pluto goes direct on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th. Mark those days and don’t book anything important. It doesn’t mean you won’t get what you want. However, it won’t happen without changes and confusion.
If you’re in a relationship, things are going well on the surface, but some significant changes are going on at a deeper level. Pay attention. If you’re single, it’s an excellent time to meet new people, but moving forward quickly will be a problem. Your patience will pay off.
October 2021 Horoscope for Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Virgos, ruled by Mercury, will be happy to know that it goes direct on the 19th in Libra. Life begins to move forward without as many obstacles. You share your ruler with Gemini, and as mutable signs, change is part of your daily life.
With the Sun conjunct Mars in your second house, trine Saturn, there is an opportunity regarding your finances. To embrace what is offered requires a leap of faith, and yes, you’ll have to let go of the control – not something any Virgo wants to do. Faith is necessary because Neptune is strong and makes a trine to Venus, ruler of your house of money. You have ideas and dreams and these ideas that can bring you a reward, but you must come out of your comfort zone. It’s a chaotic month with three significant planets going direct within days of each other: Pluto on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th. Try not to book anything important on these days.
There is often change or chaos when major planets change signs, so be prepared. Uranus continues to square Saturn, and the boundaries we have lived with for so long are being challenged. As with all change, some is good, and some causes frustration and the need to adapt. Fight for what you believe in. The Full Moon on the 20th in Aries and your 8th house may push you to look at the opportunities before you with new eyes. This is the house of transformation, so pay attention to what is revealed around this time.
If you’re in a relationship, your partner is in feeling connected and good. If you’re single, it is an excellent time to meet someone new. Open yourself up to the experience, and you might be surprised.
October 2021 Zodiac for Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Happy birthday, Libras. With the Sun, Mars, and Mercury, in Libra and trine Saturn, you have an open the door to tackle restructuring your life — if you so choose. Neptune trine Venus, your ruler, connects you to your spirit and ideals. This gives you inner power and a desire to make things happen. Jupiter trine Mercury makes communication informative and necessary. You have great ideas, and you should share them. They will help you get ahead.
Uranus square Saturn continues the transformation of the basic structures of your life. We all rely on specific patterns and habits, and they create a sense of security, but now you must update them. Let go of the past and embrace the new. Mercury goes direct on the 19th in your sign Libra. Doors will open, and some of the blocks you have faced will be removed. Be prepared to advance.
This month has a few crazy days as three significant planets go direct. Make sure you don’t book important meetings on them. Pluto goes direct on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th. Once they’re all direct, everything happens with ease. With Mars conjunct the Sun in your sign, motivation is not your problem. This is a month when you can advance. Mars adds extra drive and vision to help you focus. The Full Moon on the 20th, in Aries, brings relationship issues to a head. Whatever comes up — deal with it.
If you’re in a relationship, it’s time to get rid of old issues, so pay attention. If you’re single, you’re on fire, and others are attracted to you. Meet as many new people as you can. That special person could be one of them.
October 2021 Zodiac for Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Scorpio rules transformation, and so your life always brings you to a precipice where you must look deeper into yourself and hopefully make changes. It’s a gift and curse because most souls avoid facing themselves. It’s much easier just to repeat the past and not change. The truth is, those who find the courage to go deeper into what makes them tick live more productive lives. You are the sign of power, and that power comes from within.
No one is going to tell you what to do or how to think. With Jupiter trine Mercury, communication is good, and if you need to contact someone in a high position, this is the month to do so. They’ll listen. With Mars conjunct the Sun in Libra, in your 12th house, you feel firm but not in control. Your power comes from how you respond to what happens, but you have no control over what comes your way. The 12th house represents the unconscious.
Mercury goes direct on the 19th, and things begin to move forward. Three major planets join Mercury and go direct very close to each other, creating movement and chaos. Pluto goes direct on the 7th, Saturn on the 11th, and Jupiter on the 18th. Don’t book important meetings on these days – too chaotic. With Saturn square Uranus your home life is and has been unsettled. It’s not new to you, so make it work. Change opens doors, and for a big part of the month, others are not paying attention. You can get away with a great deal.
If you’re in a relationship, the basic structure of your relationship is in review. Make the changes. You’re both different people than you were when you came together. If you’re single, it’s a great time for excitement but not stability, so have fun.
October 2021 Horoscope for Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Sagittarius is the sign of travel and high ideals. You lift yourself above the masses by aligning yourself with something beyond your reach. Striving for something lofty keeps you centered and wise. With your ruler, Jupiter, in trine to Mercury, communication and your career should be doing well. Venus trine Neptune increases an inner yearning for spirituality and enhances your intuition and creativity.
If you’re working on a creative project, this is an excellent time to finish it or at least improve your original ideas. With Uranus in your 6th house of work, nothing is the same. You had to adapt to whatever has been going on and get the job done. With Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, communication is strong and vital. Letting others know who you are and how you feel is necessary for success. Mercury has been retrograde and goes direct on the 19th. Projects and ideas can finally move forward.
