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.

Taurus Love Forecast

October will be an epic month for romance. Not only is lucky Jupiter flowing happily through your fifth house of romance, but lusty Mars and seductive Venus are, too. Translation? Take the lead in affairs of the heart — especially on the 15th and 25th, when your proactive stance will kick love into high gear. Introduce yourself to the cuties that catch your eye; make the first move. With the sun heading into Scorpio for a month on the 23rd, you’ll feel ready to make a lasting commitment — or to find someone who can thrill you for longer than a couple of steamy nights.

Ready for the next step? Let your desires be known, bull. How you present them will make all the difference. Cut the complaining and inspire your love interest by painting a picture of the beautiful future you want to share. With the annual full moon in Taurus lighting up the skies on the 27th, your wishes are true to come.

Your Beauty Forecast: Soft Neutrals
To get the look, start by mixing a dime-sized amount of liquid luminizer with your foundation. Apply all over for a lit-from-within look, then set your base with powder. Next, prep your eyelids with a brightening primer. Using a brown kajal pencil, line your full upper and lower lashlines and along each inner rim. It’s the perfect contrast to the sexy, smoky eye you’ll then create, using a smudger brush to blend the liner out across the lids. Coat lashes with mascara. Last, brighten your complexion with a soft-pink cream blush — applied right on the apples of your cheeks — and a few swipes of pink lipstick.
