It takes two! In October, relationships of all kinds come to the fore, with the Sun heating up commitment-focused Libra until October 23, before shifting into Scorpio, the sign of merging. But the headliner? Expansive Jupiter leaves Libra and enters Scorpio on October 10, and the Libra new moon arrives mid-month to ensure our bonds are built to last.
Into the depths we go! On October 10, expansive Jupiter – the planet of growth, risk, higher learning and cross-cultural relations – will make its once-a-year sign change, exiting airy, social Libra and plunging into watery, intimate Scorpio. Jupiter transits every 12 to 13 months, and this phase defines much of the zeitgeist for this period. Now, Jupiter will stay in transformational Scorpio until November 8, 2018, spotlighting major themes such as money, sex and power. Find your sign’s horoscope for this month below…
It’s relationship high season for you, Aries. In October, the Sun makes its annual voyage through the most committed sectors of your chart, putting the emphasis on your closest ties all month. Is everything equitable, with a balanced give and take? You won’t know unless you ask—so summon the courage to find out, then make a sincere effort to iron out any kinks.
Until October 23, the Sun will be traipsing through Libra and your seventh house of partnerships, driving up the dynamic-duo energy. Aries, you make a stunning solo act, but you can only get so far on your own. Explore synergies with people whose skills and interests complement yours. Together you could take things to new heights. Romantically, this could be “make it official” time. No matter what your relationship status, give your best friends and/or significant other your undivided attention, especially if they’ve been subsisting on leftover scraps. The October 19 Libra new moon is the perfect day to turn over a new leaf, as it sets off a six-month cycle that’s ideal for love! Read the rest of your horoscope here, Aries!

Temperatures may be falling outside, but the heat is on for you! The first three weeks of October mark the Sun’s annual visit to Libra and your playful, passionate fifth house. You’re in full-on Gemini mode as you flirt, dash off witty #micdrops and hold court at the center of every party. The fifth house rules fame, so don’t be surprised if the spotlight stalks you. And when you’ve got it, keep it! Your unfiltered self-expression can win you fans—as long as you keep it positive. (Yes, Gemini, there IS such a thing as bad publicity, and you don’t want to find that out the hard way.)
Romance could be in the picture during this sizzling solar cycle. Dress up and turn some heads, or plan a few epic dates. Coupled or single, this is your time to let loose and feel the joie de vivre.

During Libra season, you’re in your element, because Cancer rules the zodiac’s fourth house. So as the Sun beams its rays here, you could be inspired to redecorate, spend more time with family or hunt for a new address. And once motivator Mars marches through Libra, from October 22 to December 9, you’ll be especially driven to put down roots. Caution: family friction could flare, so if you’re heading home for the holidays or hosting guests, take extra peace-keeping precautions. Maybe giving hotel recommendations would be better than offering Chateau Crab as a crash pad. Read the rest of your horoscope here, Cancer!
You’ve got something to say—and the world is eager to listen!

Security or freedom? This month, the planets clamor for a heaping helping of BOTH. Driving the charge is expansive Jupiter, which makes its once-a-year move on October 10, shifting the bigger tides of your life. Since September 9, 2016, Jupiter has been in Libra and your second house of work, money and daily routines. Practical matters have taken center stage, and you’ve been going through a period of major growth around finances and career.

One of your most epic and growth-filled years is coming to a close this month, Libra. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and risk-taking, is wrapping up a 13-month visit to your sign, which spanned from September 9, 2016, to October 10, 2017. Since last fall, you’ve been making huge leaps as an individual, as Jupiter inspired you to swan-dive into a solo venture and pursue your personal goals. Life circumstances may have propelled you toward greater independence—perhaps you ended a relationship or struck out as a solopreneur.
Jupiter rules luck and mass exposure, and the spotlight certainly came looking for you. From rapper Cardi B and her streaming summer mega-smash “Bodak Yellow” to the memed-and-mocked Sean Spicer to the notorious Vladimir Putin and his election-hacking, Libras dominated everything. Lesser-known members of your star tribe became household names this year, whether vaunted or vilified. Read the rest of your horoscope here, Libra!
At last! October brings a huge turning point—one you’ve been waiting for, whether you realize it or not. Lucky Jupiter, the planet of expansion and new horizons, will enter Scorpio on October 10, kicking off a fresh 12-year cycle of your life. (Yes, it really IS that major!) Jupiter only visits each sign every 12 years and stays for about a year, completely resetting your compass. Jupiter will be in Scorpio until November 8, 2018, putting your personal passions on the front burner and filling you with can-do drive. It’s as though the lights have suddenly come back on after months of groping around in the dark.
And what a welcome relief! You see, the year BEFORE Jupiter enters your sign can be filled with tough transitions and internally focused energy. Since September 9, 2016, Jupiter has been in Libra and your foggy twelfth house, forcing you to reckon with unhealed wounds or to take a deep-dive into your psyche. Jupiter taught you to surrender—something humans struggle with because it requires us to relinquish control. As you’ve probably learned by now, control is an illusion, but that doesn’t stop most of us from grasping for it. Yet the more you tried, the more it slipped away. Our friend (and Astrostyle’s meditation expert) Terri Cole says, “When you’re swimming upstream, flip over and float.” Have you tried that yet, Scorpio? Read the rest of your horoscope here, Scorpio!
Get ready, Sagittarius: On October 10, your ruling planet, jubilant Jupiter, will make its annual move, changing the entire landscape of the next 13 months. Since September 9, 2016, Jupiter has been in Libra and your eleventh house of groups, drawing you to inspirational and novel social circles, friendships and collaborations. You may have outgrown a crew or two and befriended some like minded go-getters. Let’s hear it for your new-and-improved tribe!
Now Jupiter will plunge into Scorpio, your twelfth house of closure, transitions and healing, where it will stay until November 8, 2018. You’re completing a 12-year life cycle that began in November 2006—yup, all the way back then. Everything you’ve done, learned and become is now being processed for the next 12-year chapter of your life, which will start next November, when Jupiter makes its homecoming to Sagittarius.

One. Big. Push! This month puts your ambitious goals front and center, as the Sun makes its annual visit to Libra and your tenth house of success and public recognition until October 23. But the headline news comes from Jupiter, which will wrap up an expansive 13-month visit to Libra on October 10. Since September 9, 2016, Jupiter has been propelling you into fast-paced and adventurous new terrain. Many Capricorns made huge professional strides, and with risk-taker Jupiter here, you may have branched into a whole new professional arena. Maybe you stepped into the role of leader or expert, or you hung your shingle as an independent business owner.
Jupiter only visits this part of your chart every 12 years, so make the most of its last ten days and take a bold chance. The tenth house also rules men and fathers, and your relationship with a significant male may have gone through an important evolution this year. Overall, you’ve learned how to balance structure (ruled by the tenth house) and freedom (the gift of Jupiter)—especially good for your serious sign, which can be a little TOO linear at times.

The horizon is wide, Aquarius, but a new frontier is also coming into view. For the past 13 months, you’ve been exploring new possibilities as risk-taker Jupiter soared through Libra and your ninth house of expansion. This domain also rules publishing, travel, study and entrepreneurship. You’ve been learning so much, opening yourself up to options you hadn’t previously considered.
On October 10, Jupiter will move into Scorpio and your tenth house of career and long-term plans, where it will stay until November 8, 2018. With the planet of luck and abundance in this structured zone, one of those starry-eyed visions could morph into a real-deal paying gig, and you could have your most prosperous professional cycle in more than a decade.

Out from the shadows and into the light! You’re emerging from the depths this month, Pisces, and what a process it’s been. On October 10, expansive Jupiter will make its annual sign change, switching from Libra and your secretive eighth house to Scorpio and your expansive, optimistic ninth house. This is a major movement, because Jupiter’s transits shape your trajectory for 12 to 13 months. You’ll feel the shift of this one acutely—like a butterfly breaking out of the chrysalis and flapping its vibrant wings.
Since September 9, 2016, Jupiter has been in Libra and your eighth house of intimacy, intensity, privacy and psychological processing. You’ve been in some form of energetic cave or cocoon, doing a lot of deep emotional work. It’s been quite a transformational time, and you’ve shed a few layers and probably said goodbye to people and parts of yourself that no longer served you. There may have been a few dark nights of the soul—but in those raw and vulnerable spaces, you’ve discovered parts of yourself that you might have been too scared to confront.
