THE STARS for October 2023 Horoscope
Welcome to October!
Energetically, the month ahead points to the need for truth. We find ourselves amid another intense period where secrets are being brought to light and people are demanding justice.
With the powerbroker of the sky, Pluto, ending his lengthy retrograde journey in Capricorn on Oct 11, expect to read more news that sheds light on any leaders or people of “influence” who have been misusing their power. This is part of Pluto’s role of transforming “big business” and “powerbrokers”. Expect to see ongoing exposure of any patriarchal injustice in boardrooms, politics and institutions led by an elite few who impact many in their system.
On a personal level, this is a profound period of radical transformation, especially for women. If you are working in a way that minimises you achieving your potential, you’ll be ready to make some big changes. Have you noticed yourself really ready to step into your own power? New courage may be rising up within you to take a path that’s more authentic for you. Know that you have what it takes!
The day after Pluto stations direct, Mars ingresses into Scorpio helping us set laser sharp goals both personally and professionally. The drive and desire to transform situations, by bringing the facts to the surface is strong. Things can feel really challenging at this time causing you to make some big decisions to do things differently.
October also heralds the second eclipse season for the year. Eclipses tend to signal major beginnings and major endings in a part of your life. And oftentimes these come out of the blue.
The New Moon Eclipse in Libra on the 15th October is the first eclipse in the sign of Libra since the South Node moved into the sign earlier this year. This talks to an 18-month storyline where your need to be able to show up as your unique authentic self at work is paramount. If you don’t feel valued or challenged at work, notice a desire to strike out in a new direction or even set up your own business. And if you’re in a partnership, adjustments are likely required to create a new kind of win:win for both parties.
The Full Moon Eclipse in Taurus on 29th October highlights your values, sense of self-worth and spotlights money matters. As always full moons bring emotions to the surface and out into the collective consciousness. With the Moon’s ruler Venus making a supportive connection to Uranus, unexpected change in circumstances, for the better, can come your way. Whether you see things from a new perspective, you experience a financial shift or rediscover a new sense of self-worth – this powerful lunation can help open new doorways of possibility. Just remember, when you take action, you pave the way for new opportunities to keep opening up!

You are in the midst of an 18 month window of letting go of any old outdated aspects of yourself that have been holding you back (consciously or subconsciously). If you’ve been proactive in doing the “inner work” and tuning into your personal power, then opportunities for growth and expansion await.

Welcome to October 2023 Scorpios.
Since late August, you may well have experienced a loss of drive and motivation with Mars, your ruling planet, travelling through your “retreat” sector. The good news is that on October 12, Mars leaves the hidden realms in your chart and brings fresh energy and support to set and achieve your goals. However, your innate determination to get results through tireless effort is not the way to go at this time. Instead pay more attention to focussing on how you want to “feel” doing the work in the world you’re here to do. Effort less and allow yourself to dream about the transformation you want to be and create in the world.
Ahead of this positive shift, prepare to experience some inner turmoil particularly between October 6 and 13. This period is challenging you to tap into your deepest desires.
