October 2017 Horoscope: Break Down Your Barriers
Read your monthly horoscope for October 2017
We are in a continuous process of becoming who we're meant to be. As we evolve into who we truly are, there are times when it's necessary to let go of attachments to old goals or expectations in order to ready ourselves for that next chapter that's full of possibilities. This is very much how you might feel during the Full Moon in Aries on October 5. This Full Moon is square Pluto, the planet of power and control. It challenges you to release any self-imposed chokeholds that are blocking your capacity to achieve true individuation. It will also make you keenly aware of how your pursuit of worldly achievements may be compromising your authenticity. If this is happening in your world, you've got to keep it real and remedy the situation.
Fortunately, we're about to have a grand shift in cosmic luck that will support cavernous efforts to dig into the rich minefield of our psyche. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will edge into profound Scorpio on October 10 and will remain in this emotionally rich sign until November 8, 2018. This will help you to get real -- and keep it real -- for the next thirteen months.
In addition to this glorious expansion of your ability to go deep, Jupiter in Scorpio will help you to receive the riches of others in every capacity possible. The power of giving is immense, but the power of receiving? It could be life-changing.
As the month progresses, October takes on its signature relationship tone thanks to Libra season. Venus enters Libra on October 14, promoting peace and harmony in all relationships until November 7. A defining moment in your life, however, might occur on October 19 at the New Moon in Libra. This New Moon sharply opposes Uranus in Aries, possibly giving you a feeling that you're on a seesaw when it comes to any new partnership potential in your personal or business life. Figuring out how to compromise with others without conceding will certainly be a major theme this month. Fortunately, as Mars glides into Libra on October 22, you'll be motivated to figure out how to balance this very contrasting dynamic.
