Happy birthday, October Libras! From the 1st to the 9th, you can reap the benefits of Jupiter’s last few days of Libra tenancy, especially if you were born late in the sign this month. Libra Sun and Libra Mercury will also be benefitting you in this 9-day period, making it the perfect time to communicate some of your biggest ideas. Jupiter rules the big picture, expansion, indulgence, generosity, and fortune, and in Libra, these qualities go hand-in-hand with creative aesthetics, diplomacy, justice, social life, and matters of beauty. Now would be a good time to settle a dispute, make a major change to your appearance, or generally overhaul or beautify your life in some way. The conjunction with Libra Venus (Oct 15-31) also overlaps with both Libra Mercury and Libra Sun for the 15th, 16th, and 17th. Seize opportunities to flirt and socialize, as your arrows will more likely hit their intended marks, and be sure to take yourself out in the world to do so. Hiding behind a phone or computer won’t do you any good this time. See a show, look at art, or visit the nature you may have forgotten---better yet, try to do things like this a little further away than usual, such as the next town over. From October 17th to the 19th, the New Moon will be in Libra, signifying purgings, beginnings, and the potential of the void. As it’s opposing retrograde Aries Uranus, you may feel emotionally impulsive and excitable, so try not to make any important decisions on guts and heart alone. Libra Mars (Oct 23-31) overlaps with Libra Venus to conjunct your Sun from the 23rd through Halloween, making you susceptible to buying one of those $14.99 “sexy” costumes. You won’t really need the help, but it’s still in your best interests to go to some good parties. The monthlong sextile with Sagittarius Saturn mostly affects mid-October Libras, who can harness its scholastic and philosophic disciplines for maximum long-term effect. Commit yourself to getting things done and you will do thorough and careful work. Alternatively, you should seek the company of an older, wiser, and more worldly weirdo, who can grant you an opportunity or give you good advice. Late October Libras should beware the erratic surprises of retrograde Aries Uranus, while those born in the first week of October should heed the square with Capricorn Pluto. Dramatic overhauls are uncomfortable, but necessary. Make changes and challenge yourself shrewdly before something forces you to.

There's an overindulgence of Libra planets this month, but Air serves to bolster you before nearly all its influence leaves in November!
