The month of October is bringing in a more stable, grounded energy, as four planets will go direct this month. This turns the focus outward and pushes us back into alignment with ourselves. However, this may also push us to take accountability for our choices and to be proactive about not falling into our old bad habits. Here is what October has in store for you based on your rising sign.
October 6 — New moon in Libra, Pluto goes direct in Capricorn (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
October 7 — Venus enters Sagittarius (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)
October 8 — Ceres goes retrograde in Gemini (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)
October 10 — Saturn goes direct in Aquarius (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
October 17 — Jupiter goes direct in Aquarius (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
October 19 — Mercury goes direct in Libra (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
October 20 — Full moon in Aries (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
October 23 –– Sun enters Scorpio (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
October 30 –– Mars enters Scorpio (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
If you’re an Aries rising, things will be focused on others at the beginning of the month, from your closest relationships to your relationship with your boss. The middle part of the month brings in some excellent opportunities to network, as well as a chance to release things that no longer serve you and focus on yourself. The end of the month invites you to do some soul-searching, make connections to your behavior patterns and really connect with yourself, rather than avoiding the truth.
Tarot Tidbit: You got the Scorpio, Uranus, and Semi-sextile cards in your reading for this month. The deep dive into yourself is going to be particularly crucial for you this month. Doing the work may reward you with some breakthroughs and help you make progress on the issues that you really want to focus on. Don’t shy away from the challenge, you’re at your best when you face things head-on.

For Taurus risings, the beginning of the month will push you to focus on your well-being, both physically and spiritually. You may have been neglecting your needs, and pushing yourself to the point of burnout. Don’t be afraid to step back and take a break if you need it, asking for help is not a sign of weakness. You may feel revitalized in the middle of the month, and feel your drive for your career reignite. The latter part of the month will spotlight your relationships, but with Mars entering that house, be mindful of who you associate with and your own actions.
Tarot Tidbit: For your tarot tidbit, the Quincunx, 8th house, and 1st house cards came up. It feels like you’ve been avoiding listening to yourself and pushing your feelings aside, even though you know it’s not in your own interest. This is your sign to cut it out! It’s not easy to learn to set healthy boundaries, but the result is so worth it.

This month provides some excellent opportunities to get in touch with your inner child if you’re a Gemini rising. With the Mercury retrograde happening in the house of creativity, Pluto stationing directly in the house of self-awareness and emotional depth, and Jupiter and Aquarius stationing directly in the house of beliefs and philosophies, you have likely been pushed to do a lot of reflection. Now is the time to release all of that, in a healthy way of course. The last part of the month will likely knock you back into reality and urge you to focus on your responsibilities.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came out for your monthly tarot tidbit were Sextile, 4th house and Capricorn. This month you are really being encouraged to connect with your feelings, and the transits are providing ample opportunities. It feels like you haven’t been giving yourself a chance to express your feelings, or perhaps you’ve been actively avoiding it. This is your sign to cut it out, and to face the reality that releasing them is good for you. You’ll only pile on later if you don’t let things go.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “COME BACK HOME” – 2NE1
If you’re a Cancer rising, the beginning of the month may have tension between your emotions and private life, and what others want or need from you. Balance takes time to learn, but it is crucial with this transit, as well as the Jupiter and Saturn transit through your house of intimacy, shared resources, and self-awareness. The latter part of the month may provide you some excellent and much-needed opportunities for romance, but use your discernment, especially with Pluto still going through the house of relationships.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came out for you this month were Moon, 7th house and Pluto, which are all quite fitting for you. Not only will your relationships be transformed, but you will be transformed through your relationships with others, so it is important to pick and choose who is worthy of your time. However, this transit can also bring really powerful allies into your life, so be open but remain watchful. You can see any potential red flags if you pay attention and don’t get too caught up in the moment with the other person.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “I Love You” – EXID
If you’re a Leo rising, the early October transits will push you to focus on everyday matters and your health. You also need to really think before you speak this month, as you may regret something you said impulsively down the line. Your relationships will still be something to focus on, but the focus is outward, rather than looking at how you play a role in your relationships. Later in October, the energy will be concentrated in the area dealing with the home, family matters, and your inner world. Be careful to separate yourself if things get too tense.
Tarot Tidbit: Your cards for this month are Taurus, Quincunx, and 5th house. Taurus is all about loyalty and patience, and the 5th house is about passion, creativity, and fun. Quincunx complicates things. Just because you have fun with someone doesn’t mean the fun outweighs the negative things about them, and you need to be more willing to accept it when you know things won’t work out. These cards are urging you to evaluate who you should really keep around, and cut off those that don’t. You can leave if you’re not having fun, and that’s a valid enough reason to leave if you tried to make it work.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “LONELY” – SISTAR
Virgo risings need to find a balance between being financially responsible and having fun, particularly at the beginning of the month. It is okay to let yourself have fun, but sometimes you also have to say no to yourself. The beginning of the month has a Mercury retrograde occurring, and as a Mercury-ruled rising sign, you may feel it more than most. Plan accordingly, especially if you know you need to take care of some things. You’re also called to not neglect your responsibilities, but be willing to ask for help if you need it. The last part of the month will be a prime opportunity to clear up any miscommunication, but choose your words wisely, as Mars in the third house may accidentally inflame things.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came up for you were 6th house, 11th house, and Saturn. These cards are pushing you to take preventative actions if you can, particularly in regard to the Mercury retrograde. You may feel burdened by responsibility, but the 11th house is the house of wish fulfillment. If you take care of what you need to, your reward will not only be not having to address it later, but also it feels like you might receive a blessing from the universe. Keep an eye out, and remember to be grateful for the little things.

It’s all about you if you’re a Libra rising! The new moon at the beginning of the month encourages you to focus on yourself, but Pluto goes directly in the house of family, home, and your private world, creating tension between what you want to focus on and what you need at home or within yourself. This month offers some great transits for creative projects, so try using that as an outlet. This also may be an easier time to ignite things and put yourself out there in terms of romance. Towards the end of the month, money will be the main focus, so try to save money if you’re able.
Tarot Tidbit: This month’s tarot tidbit consists of the Sagittarius, 8th house and Gemini cards. This seems to speak to the romance aspect of your horoscope, at least that’s the feeling I get. Gemini and Sagittarius are both social signs, but they are also two sides of the same coin. The message that comes through is to not be afraid to put yourself out there, and allow yourself to be vulnerable. The other thing is, try dating outside of your type because sometimes opposites attract, and it can lead to a long-lasting relationship.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “LOCO” – ITZY
Scorpio risings, you might be feeling lethargic or drained at the beginning of the month, and you might accidentally lash out without realizing it. As the month progresses, if you are looking for a new place to live or to improve your relationship with your family, the middle of the month might be a good time to work on that. The end of the month will put the focus on you and what makes you happy and might make you feel more energized than you have been, especially in the last month.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came up for you were Square, Aquarius and Trine. There seems to be a really strong energy surrounding this burnt-out feeling at the beginning of the month. It suggests that you may be experiencing some real challenges, but that is only a test of your character and inner strength. This is a situation where creative problems require creative solutions, and once you overcome this, you will have an easier time manifesting and attracting the things you want into your life.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “ZzZz” – Purple Kiss
Sagittarius risings have their friendships and personal values, as well as their finances, spotlighted at the beginning of this month. If there are issues between you and your friends, they will likely come up during this time. This may also be a time where you experience some rejection from things you wanted in your life, but this is temporary and is being taken out of your life because it’s not meant for you. Communication will become easier when Jupiter and Saturn go direct, so if you are having issues with others, I suggest working things out then. Towards the end of the month, you may find yourself feeling more drained than usual, so take care not to lash out or be passive-aggressive. This would be a great time for beauty endeavors and taking photos or developing your style, as Venus is transiting through your first house.
Tarot Tidbit: Your cards for this month are Opposition, Libra, and Leo. There is a good amount of stressful energy this month, and this reading suggests that you will desperately need to be able to balance that with self-compassion. We can’t always be perfect, and sometimes, you have to be the one to show yourself kindness and empathy. The Opposition and Libra cards both symbolize balance and fairness, so you will need to be extra gracious with yourself, rather than dwelling on your mistakes. It’s okay (and encouraged) to spoil yourself.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “GONE” – ROSÉ
If you’re a Capricorn rising, the beginning of this month may have you feeling frazzled. The Mercury retrograde is happening in the house dealing with your career and authority figures, so it’s possible you may experience difficulty getting along with your boss. Keep your head up, this will pass eventually. You are a force to be reckoned with, and some people may have a hard time coming to terms with that. You may also have been doing some soul-searching regarding your personal values, or you have been made to be responsible with your money this month. Treat yourself, you deserve it. You might even make some friends or add to your network while doing so.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came out for you were Gemini, Trine, and Pisces. You really need to let yourself go with the flow this month. As an earth sign, and a Saturn-ruled sign, you may find it difficult to let yourself have fun or relax, but it feels like your soul really needs you to let go. Taking care of yourself is the best way to let opportunities come into your life, and it also is important just for regular maintenance. Try not to forget that this time.

If you’re an Aquarius rising, you have been put through the wringer in regards to your mental and spiritual well-being, it seems. Reflection is important, but too much can mean you become detached from reality, and that is not always a good thing. Maintain your practice, but also take time to take care of yourself, it’s super important. The end of the month will likely make you feel revitalized in your career, and you may find yourself exploring your passions more. Go with what makes you happy, but make sure you know how to ground yourself and put in the work.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came up for you this month were 1st house, Aries, and Taurus. It seems like self-care is a major priority for you this month. Putting yourself first is not selfish, but even if it is, sometimes you need to for self-preservation. Take cues from your fellow fixed signs, particularly Taurus. Sometimes, moving at your own pace is self-care, but don’t be afraid to splurge on yourself. There is nothing like quality time with yourself.
A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “SOLO” – JENNIE
Pisces risings may have been leaning on their friends more this month than usual. It is perfectly okay and understandable to reach out to your support network, but make sure you’re there for them when they need it also. If you are involved in any spiritual or religious practices, you may have been less active with them than usual or doing a deeper dive into them. I can see you also being drained, more than you usually are. It is okay to take time away from people, and sometimes you have to for your own good. Spending time developing your spirit will do you some good, and in fact, is encouraged particularly towards the end of the month.
Tarot Tidbit: The cards that flew out were Aries, North Node, and 4th house. The cards are practically screaming to take time for yourself and do self-development. It is really important for your well-being, especially as a Jupiter-ruled water sign. Working on your intuition will help you set boundaries and prevent yourself from getting into another “I-can-fix-them” relationship, whether it’s platonic or romantic. Please separate from others and do this reflection, you likely really need it.
