Your October 2017 Horoscope

by Zen Rose Garden

Theme of the Month

In October, we are deeply influenced astrologically by the energy of Libra. Libra is all about fairness, justice, peace, harmony, beauty, equality, and balance. Libra energy focuses on the relationships we have with ourselves, others and literally, everything else.

October Horoscope Overview

This month is about balancing relationships within ourselves, others and everything around us. If your relationship with food is out of balance, for instance, it is time to look at the reasons why. Could it be that you are lacking self-love somewhere else in your world? Looking at places that are out of balance is not always easy, but with the gentle energy of Libra on board this month, the transition into balance will be a lot smoother.

Take the opportunity this month to observe the beauty in the journeys of those around you as well as your own. Your journey is unique to you. Take time to appreciate that. Along with that awareness come the responsibility of respect for others and their choices, even if they are not in alignment with yours.

Planetary forces are still powerful from the leftover energy of Mercury Retrograde and the recent Solar Eclipse last month. Use that remaining energy to take at least one day to declutter and tie up loose ends, both physically and emotionally.

On October 6th, the Full Moon will be in Pisces. Use that energy to balance your masculine and feminine energies. It would not be bad for date night either!

On October 22nd, the Autumn Equinox will be here. This is the second time of the year when day and night are equal. Celebrate with friends and loved ones that help keep you in balance during the rest of the year!
