Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 11, and Venus will stay retrograde for most of the month. Venus is also combust from October 17 to 31. The period of Pitru Paksha lasts until October 9, and then the auspicious Navaratri (also known as Durga Puja) will be celebrated from October 9 to 18 to honor feminine energy. The Hindu festival of Dussehra is also celebrated on October 18.

You may find yourself withdrawing this month. Everything seems a bit stale and unsatisfying and you may feel demoralized and confused. You feel something important is missing from your life, but you don’t know what it is. In this state of mind, you could miss the good things happening around you. You may find that you reject help from loved ones, but you are cutting yourself off unnecessarily.

With major transits in October, this is a great time for reassessment. Do not rush into things that you are not sure about. Take time to contemplate. This uncertain situation will change after few days as the planetary energy begins to favor you. Goddess Durga is likely to bless you in multiple ways.

SUN SIGN OF THE MONTH

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

They perform their best when they are free from undue pressure and given freedom to explore their creativity. When confronted with a problem, they often wait for matters to resolve instead of taking sides.

Rarely will you find a Libran in a gloomy mood, as they know how to make the best out of every situation. They are very romantic and enjoy romantic movies and songs. As air signs, Librans are intellectual and imaginative. They have an intense desire for love, compassion and understanding, but can also be idealistic and difficult to satisfy.

A Libra man has innate enthusiasm, and optimism and influence from Venus makes him exceptionally interested in painting, acting, or music. He has a strong desire to be famous and rich. For him, his friends are very important. He will also have humanitarian tendencies and express them in a positive way.

A Libra woman is the most feminine of the zodiac. She has a very pleasing personality and stands out in a crowd. She is charming, creative, stylish, sensitive, and emotional. She strives for perfection and always wants the best. Because she is multi-talented, a Libra woman often has more than one career at a time. She is an exceptional artist, entertainer, fashion designer, actor, or singer. She possesses a great appreciation for beauty and art. She has very high expectations in her relationships and is often in a romantic relationship at a young age.
