October 2022 horoscope: Goodbye retrogrades, hello hot girl Eclipse season

As always with eclipses, there can be breakups, breakdowns and breakthroughs, with a particularly powerful eclipse occuring October 25

October is a month of paranormal twists and turns as we catapult out of retrogrades and move into hot and heavy Eclipse season. October opens with the Sun shining through the sign of Libra, illuminating our relationships with others. We are attuned to fairness, beauty, artistry and balance. Libra, ruled by Venus, is a sign that seeks refinement, company, fantastic interiors and incredible outfits. We are eager to balance our external environments with a sense of internal certainty. So despite the sense of impending doom, we don’t shy away from getting dolled up to reconvene with friends or go on a hot date. We are focused on partnership, and equally quick to assert where we perceive lapses in fairness. Above all, Libra’s seek justice and truth. As tension is building between Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius for the majority of the month, we can expect global changes and collective shock waves. Expect the unexpected, as Uranus brings shock, sudden revelations, weather anomalies and issues with the supply chain.  

On a more personal note, Mercury ends its retrograde motion on the 2nd of the month, progressing forward through the detail-oriented sign of Virgo. We are certainly privy to receiving sharp insights about what we need to improve, and the first 10 days of October bode well for jotting off our to-do list and getting our affairs in order. On the 10th, Mercury joins the conversation in Libra and we are once again examining our counterparts. A fiery full Moon in Aries the same day may encourage us to vocalise our needs and put ourselves first – even if it ruffles feathers.

The Sun and Venus enter Scorpio on the 22nd, infusing our daily lives with intensity and increasing our appetite for depth. We are attuned to what people are hiding, investigative and hungry for change. We are examining tenacious, four-part love affairs. Reflecting on dynamics that take us to the underworld and back. A powerful Eclipse in Scorpio on the 25th concludes October in deep revelations. War God Mars stations retrograde in Gemini on the 30th, pressuring us to make choices in terms of what we are going after and how we get there. It’s time to inspect our personal mission and slow down a bit. Our drive to engage in toxicity over real intimacy is under inspection. 

As always with eclipses, there can be breakups, breakdowns and breakthroughs. Ultimately, Scorpio is about our shared energy with others, and this eclipse illuminates our intimate bonds. Expect a reveal of which dynamics will stand the test of transformation.
