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.

Cancer Love Forecast

Want more love in your life? In October, the path to amour routes you through the friend zone. Cosmic couple Mars and Venus teams up with lucky Jupiter in your house of BFFs, lightening up the vibes. Socialize, mingle, and let your shell down. It’s your adorably “messy” and authentic self that the right person will find so appealing. Having great girlfriends is also a romantic rocket-booster this month. Not only can they play wing-women and introduce you to their eligible friends, but they’ll also provide great support. Expecting your mate to be your emotional life raft puts far too much pressure on the relationship. Spread it around, and call your girls to process those raw feelings.

Your playful, passionate spirit heats up when the sun heads into Scorpio on the 23rd. Dress up and paint the town red with the one you adore. Stack the calendar with cultural events and even a lowbrow laugh or two — mechanical bull rides, anyone?

Your Beauty Forecast: Silver Fox
To get the look, first sweep a bit of bronzer through the crease of each lid to define your eye shape and create depth. Next, use a small domed brush to blend a gray powder eyeshadow over the entire lid and through the crease as a base. Add a metallic sheen with a second coat of silver cream shadow applied over your lid and along your lower lashline. Then, line your upper and lower lashlines with a black kajal pencil for maximum intensity. Keep the rest of your face neutral with a light dusting of bronzer for contouring and a nude lip.
