Your October Love Horoscope, Revealed

comments
October is the month for true love. The sun blazes a trail through Libra and Scorpio — the signs associated with partnerships and deep bonds. And from the 8th on, Mars and Venus stroll hand in hand — their magic getting some serious love from supersizer Jupiter. But will these heart-opening vibes point us to a new leading man or lady, or will they send us back in time? With Mercury retrograde until the 9th, the stars are spinning sentimental jams. Old flames could make a comeback, and couples may start feeling nostalgic. On the 27th, the tell-it-like-it-is full moon of Taurus helps us place people in their proper categories in our lives and make some serious plans for the future. Ready or not, this month’s about to stir up some feelings.

Aquarius Love Forecast

Two steps forward, one step back. October’s pace is a little wonky, Aquarius. With the sun in your open-minded, “I’ll try anything once” ninth house until the 23rd, you’ll be game to meet new people and to expand and stretch your romantic horizons. But a trio of planets — Venus, Mars, and Jupiter — is nesting in your intimate, erotic eighth house, making you crave close encounters with one special soul.

Do you seek PDA or privacy? Experimentation or exclusivity? Expect to swing between extremes and even to host the green-eyed monster some days this month. Your best bet — seek a soulmate who knows how to make you feel special without fencing you in. If you’re in an LTR, mix it up with weekend getaways and epic cuddling on the couch. With Mercury retrograde until the 9th, you could take a nostalgic couple’s trip or reconnect with a long-distance love. The new moon on the 12th and the full moon on the 27th could bring some sexy surprises your way. Hint: Reserve those dates for a night in.

Your Beauty Forecast: Into The Blue
To get the look, heavily rim your upper and lower lashlines and your lower waterline in blue eyeliner. Use a pencil brush to blend and buff the color out, softening the lines. Then, dip that same brush into blue powder shadow; blend it right on top of the pencil, all across your lid, and up past the crease. Be sure to blend well all around the perimeter, so there are no harsh lines. When you're done, add mascara. Since statement eyes are the focus of this look, keep the rest of your makeup minimal. Use a blush slightly deeper than your natural skin tone to subtly sculpt below your cheekbones, and apply a neutral lip gloss for polish. Matching blue nails in an ombré design further amp up your look. (Simply use a sponge to dab blue polish over a base of nude, and finish with topcoat.)
