Aries horoscopes for October 2021
Ready for passion
You are revved up and ready for passion. Your desire to please your sweetie and build a long-term relationship together could prompt you to make spur of the moment decisions regarding your rapport. With Mercury retrograde in your sector of committed partnership, your enthusiasm could be blinding to you to certain realities and clouding your judgment. Before making a grand romantic gesture, such as popping the question or asking to move in together, slow down and wait until after the 18th, when sound, rational thinking returns and your hormones calm down.

Taurus horoscopes for October 2021
Taking things slow
This month, you’ll have a tendency to bite off more than you can chew. Before rushing into play hero and fix other people’s lives, try to put your needs first. At work, you may volunteer to take on a huge amount of tasks, which may include picking up other people’s duties, leading to stress and burnout. Pay close attention to your eating habits during this time, as you may have the urge to binge as a way of coping with the stress. Set a meal plan in advance and stick to it; also try to avoid processed and restaurant foods, as much as possible. If you start a new workout regime in October, you may push yourself too far, too fast, resulting in injury or exhaustion. Moderation is key. After the 18th, rationality and balance finally return.

Gemini horoscopes for October 2021
Love is all around
You are surrounded by so many possibilities for love that you may pick the wrong suitor or drive a potentially valid partner away with your Casanova tendencies. Desires run high, allowing you to get swept away by spontaneous passion, so make sure you are well protected to avoid unwanted pregnancy or disease. If you do get involved in with the wrong love interest, it will become evident in the latter half of the month. Don’t be surprised if that that sexy, exciting person of your dreams transforms into a domineering control freak. Put off making firm decisions about romance until after the 18th.

Cancer horoscopes for October 2021
Take some time for you
You are happiest when you are cozying up in your home surrounded by your nearest and dearest. October is overflowing with opportunities for familial bonding, but your gung-ho drive for domestic bliss and perfection could end up driving those you live with absolutely nuts, leading to arguments, alienation and power games by month’s end. Be aware that your desire for closeness could leave you draping like a wet towel over other people’s boundaries. If you respect the right to privacy and personal space of those around you, things will be a lot more fun and vibrant.

Leo horoscopes for October 2021
Communication is key
Your outbox is overloaded with mixed messages, leading to misunderstandings that could ultimately hurt your reputation, if you are not careful. You are up for conversations and discussions of all kinds, but you could also be quick to anger if people don’t respond in the exact way you were expecting, leading to snappy, aggressive come backs. These off-the-cuff remarks, however, could lead to distancing and the breaking of bonds that would otherwise have been useful and fruitful. You need to calm down and seriously consider your words before you speak. Put off all negotiations and important dialogues until the 18th, when your natural, easy-going charm returns.

Get your bag
After toiling away tirelessly on an endless stream of unappreciated grunt work, you are well positioned to start negotiating for a better salary, taking on new clients, or seeking a better-paid position. However, in your eagerness to increase your income, you could sign on the dotted the line without fully reading the fine print. If you are not careful, you could either sell yourself short or get yourself into a disadvantageous contract that will prove hard to get out of. Instead of finalizing deals, use the first part of the month to reach out and schmooze. Verbal negotiations are fine during this period, but you won’t want to put your John Hancock on anything until after the 18th.

Love is in the air
It’s your birthday month, and you’re kind of now, kind of wow, Libra. Unfortunately, your critical thinking skills are nowhere near as stunning as your looks and personality. Your quest for daring-do and boundary-pushing excitement will put you in a mood that is definitely “Act now, think later.” In your quest for a good time, you could attract a string of passionate, seductive and positively thrilling suitors, only to wake up on the 18th with a massive love hangover, wondering how you got yourself involved with these dodgy lotharios. You may want to seek romantic advice from close confidants, or your self-esteem could take a bruising when your newfound paramour turns out to be nothing more than a cad.

New season, new you
After a social, extroverted summer, you are ready to retire from the scene to recharge your batteries during the cozy first days of autumn. This is an excellent period to completely reinvigorate your outlook on life. By reflecting on the past, you will be able to heal from lingering traumas and hurts by understanding their root causes. You can finally place things into perspective and regain a sense of exuberance, confidence and trust in the world. This would be an excellent period to seek counselling or dive into the self-help section at the local library. There is no reason you should allow the pain inflicted on you by toxic people in the past to affect your future. Don’t worry about buying a costume for Halloween, as you will be ready to debut the dazzling, new, improved you to the world.

Sagittarius horoscopes for October 2021
Budget, budget, budget
You’ll want to draw a firm dividing line between your friends and your wallet. You are in an extremely sociable mood, and a generous sign such as yours never minds buys picking up the tab for a few rounds to get the party started. However, your gregarious benevolence may come back and hit you in the pocketbook later in the month, when you may faced delayed or skipped payments from a job or client. Also refrain from lending a friend some cash so they can join you on a night on the town, because it could lead to arguments when you try to get them to pay you back. Instead, try to choose places to go that are within everyone’s budget, or invite the gang round to your place, BYOB.

Capricorn horoscopes for October 2021
Skip the work drama
Your place of work will be more like a viper’s den filled with intrigue, competition and behind-the-back jockeyings for position. Try to maintain a healthy distance from colleagues to avoid getting sucked into petty dramas. You may also want to make sure to go on all lunches, happy hours and coffee breaks in a group. Otherwise, don’t be surprised if your break mate uses the opportunity to spread malicious gossip afterwards based off things you never actually said. Your desire for leadership and dominance could ignite nasty power struggles. Instead of provoking and one-upping those around you, concentrate on doing a good job and impressing the powers that be.

Learn to go with the flow
Mercury is retrograde in your travel sector until the 18th, and the best-laid plans could go astray. You could face delays or cancellations while on the road, so be prepared to take things in stride. You should also make sure to check vaccine mandates and other restrictions in your destination to make sure you have all the necessary documentation to be able to go about your business. If you are a student, you may struggle to keep up with your course load. Do as much as you can, and you will eventually get the swing of it; things lighten up considerably in the last ten days of the month.

Start doing your financial homework
As much as you would like to sink your saving into the latest cryptocurrency or hot, new NFT, you should hold off from making any investments until after the 18th. Your financial radar will be off, and your bright-eyed enthusiasm will make you an easy target for any huckster trying to sell of some swampland in Florida. Instead, use the first weeks of the year to reach out to a broker and start researching stocks and other money-making ventures — just hold off on making a buy until the last week of the month. Follow the same timeline if you are seeking funding for project or looking into taking out a mortgage. In romance, you will be on fire, leading to some spicy adventures in the bedroom.
