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.

Capricorn Love Forecast

Honesty is the best policy, Capricorn, so drop your guard and get real. Candid Jupiter is traveling alongside Venus and Mars this October, in your outspoken ninth house. Although it can be scary to fess up to your feelings, the truth shall set you free. One caveat: Mercury is retrograde until the 9th, so work on a few drafts, then bare your soul during the new moon on the 12th.

Traveling is the best way to rev up romance under this cosmic trifecta’s spell. Set off for a beach weekend with your amour — or your friends, the ones who won’t mind if you slip off for a sultry hookup. Then, with the sun illuminating your goal-oriented 10th house until the 23rd, talks with your sweetie may turn to merging finances or collaborating on a professional project. With the full moon on the 27th lighting up your fifth house of romance and fertility, your relationship could hit an epic milestone — especially for Caps who are ready for a “happily ever after” or some cradle-rocking co-adventures.

Your Beauty Forecast: Flirty Mod
To get the look, prep your skin with foundation, concealer, and powder. Make sure to fill in and define your brows to frame your face. Then, dust a shimmery peach shadow over your entire lid as your base shade. Glide a cream eyeliner along your upper lashline, flicking it up and out into an angular cat-eye at the outer corner. (Pro tip: For the perfect sharp wing, line up a business card with the outer corner of your eye, aiming it toward the end of your brow. Trace along the edge of the card, and voilà!) Coat lashes generously with mascara. Next, use an angled brush to pack on blush just under your cheekbones for a dramatic effect. Sweep a peachy highlighter across the apples of your cheeks, and finish with a peach lip, topped with plenty of gloss.
