Your October Love Horoscope, Revealed

comments

There are two signs in the zodiac that are synonymous with love, lust, and longing — Libra and Scorpio. In October, the sun beams its bright energy toward both, revving up our inner romantics and increasing our urge to merge. Libra season, which lasts until the 22nd, is more lighthearted and happy to draw out the courtship phase. Air-sign energies, like those of Libras, love to converse and collect data. This month, revel in the getting-to-know-you process because, honestly, there’s always something new to learn about the one you love.


When water sign Scorpio takes the wheel for a month on the 22nd, get ready to plunge into the deep...or hop on the life raft and paddle furiously away. This raw, instinctual season has an all-or-nothing theme, so forget about stringing anyone along with a "call me, maybe" line. With this palpable simmering energy ruling the skies, seductive powers are super potent in October’s final third. Beam them mindfully or hearts could break.

Aquarius

Anything but the usual type is what you're looking for this October. With the sun and love goddess Venus on a tour through your worldly ninth house, the first half of the month could seriously broaden your horizons. Cross-cultural connections, vacation romances, and shared adventures with your S.O. is what the planets have on their playlist. Single Aquarians could have the best time trying out Cupid's sampler platter without committing to a favorite too fast. Variety is the spice of life, so coupled Aquarians should stave off boredom with road trips, weekend getaways, or even a big vacation before the 22nd.

During the full moon on the 16th, you could discover stronger feelings for someone in the friend category. Or a friend or sibling could make a fateful introduction to a pal, making sparks fly. (Clear it with your Cupid friend first before making a move to make sure they don't have a companion crush going on.) From the 18th on, Venus trails alongside heavyweight Saturn, and you'll be taking a more serious approach to love. Talk openly about your bigger goals like career and where (and when) you want to settle down. Compromising may be necessary to get in alignment — and this could take a few long discussions to resolve.
