This October, Jupiter will transit through Libra, and Saturn will exit Scorpio and reenter Sagittarius. Mercury, the planet of communication and speech, will stay combust for most of the month. The Indian festival of Karva Chauth, where married women fast for the well-being and prosperity of their husbands, will be on the 8th. Jupiter will turn combust on the 11th, and Venus will transit through Virgo, its sign of debilitation. The most auspicious Hindu festival of lights, known as Deepavali or Diwali, will be celebrated on the 19th.

A certain amount of excitement and many sudden changes may fill your life this October. What happens isn’t what you expected, but life does not seem to be dull. There will be new challenges, and you will find yourself working to realize your ideals in the midst of interferences and delays. With the Sun transiting Libra, you will see the possibility of harmony and synthesis, even when many factions around you may be in disagreement. It is best to keep a broad outlook toward life, focusing on long-term goals rather short term gains. The cosmic energy will be more effective and rewarding if you work on addressing the needs of others.



Libra (September 23 to October 22)

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and its symbol is the scale, which signifies balance. The Libra native needs a harmonious life, free from undue pressure and arguments. They enjoy a place where they can exhibit their creativity and nourish their artistic skills. When confronted with a problem, a Libran will wait for things to settle down rather than push their way through.

A Libran does not enjoy a solitary lifestyle. For them, life is all about living and making the best of everything they have. Complete happiness means sharing life with others. That is why Librans tend to be excellent hosts. They are fond of food, music, and movies. Whether at home or at work, they like to be creative in everything they do.

A Libran woman is truly feminine, making her easily stand out in a crowd. She has a charming personality and unique style. As Venus rules her, she values harmony and equality, and loves everything related to nature and beauty. She tends to keep her innermost desires hidden in order to maintain peace and harmony, and as a result, many of her closest people do not know her true feelings.

A Libran male is charismatic and outgoing. He is popular with others because he is a natural charmer. He is multi-talented and has a great power of persuasion. He can be a good entertainer as he is intelligent and highly witty, and that is why a Libran male will always find himself at the centre of attraction in social gatherings. Blessed with innate wisdom, he can see both sides of most situations. He has a great sense of justice, which his sign already depicts.

October promises to be a memorable month for Librans, bringing prosperity and good fortune. You may be charged with extra energy and determination to make it big, but you should not take any unnecessary financial risks. Also avoid getting into power struggles with coworkers or managers. If you feel that they have treated you unfairly, try to use tact and diplomacy to make them aware of your feelings and work toward a compromise.

With friends and relatives, you need to play a role of a supporter and not that of a critic to be appreciated by them. You will enjoy the company of young children, but your hectic schedule may give you less time with your beloved. This period may require you to make a few adjustments in your life to find new ways to make yourself happy.

You may not feel very settled this month. A hectic work schedule the past few days may continue to disturb your mind. Some unforeseen problems could upset your best-laid plans. You may depend much more on others for help and support. These events may easily make you irritated and short-tempered. Try not to hurt others’ feelings as you will always regret it if relationships turn sour. Your lover may be in a highly romantic mood and the time you spend together could be very special and memorable. You are likely to spend more than what you earn, which may add stress on your mind.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Some changes at your workplace are seriously going to affect your efficiency. If you have some differences of opinion, do not let your boss know where you stand. Things will gradually go back to normal with the help of colleagues and co-workers. This is a good month to finish off short-term projects. Financial gains are certain, but don’t exert yourself beyond what you can handle, otherwise, stress may take a toll on your health. You and your spouse may have a very unusual relationship this month. Although you may not spend enough time together, you still have deep respect for each other. Residential moves that occur during this period may be highly beneficial. Friends will be helpful, but some relatives may try to force their opinion on you. You are likely to spend your extra income towards traveling and social activities.

People will respect your opinion and honor your requests if you show them your qualities. You will accomplish many difficult projects and enter a variety of new partnerships. Your income will show a remarkable improvement, but you definitely need to cut your expenses to make some good investments. Your beloved may not be in the best of mood and might do things that would annoy you. Reaching to an agreement won’t be easy and a difference of opinion could create mental turmoil. Someone you least expected may go out of the way to help you.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)

Emotions may run high and create an uneasy atmosphere for you at home. Exercise patience and remain calm if you wish to avoid arguments. You may also have some difficulty dealing with authority figures, some of whom could upset your plans. It’s possible that you may complete a great amount of work from home without much help from others. You may handle many vital jobs independently, and be an active member of an important organization. Your income could rise during this period, and it is likely to be from, at least, two different sources. But there will be an increase in your expenses as well, making it difficult for you to save. Pleasant news toward the end of October lifts your spirits. Purchase of some vehicle or expensive household items is on your cards.

Travel may be on your mind, and even a short trip to visit friends or relatives may prove to be interesting and informative. You need to be extra careful when making investments.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)

Financial problems continue to plague you. Although you may be in a position to reap great honor and recognition, a dismal financial position may hamper your efforts to execute your plans. You will be dedicated and do your best to complete difficult jobs, but it is unlikely that you will be compensated well for your good performance. The more organized you are, the better your performance will be. New romance and friendships during the month may prove to be worthwhile and long-lasting. Health problems due to overexertion and stress cannot be ruled out. Business trips that you undertake this month may pay big dividends and bring you in contact with future allies or possible business partners.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

New opportunities seem exciting, but may not bring you the immediate results that you desire. The leadership qualities you possess seem to put you in an executive position. Your sense of responsibility may be rewarded, and people around you will value your views. Your efforts will eventually pay off handsomely, but don’t start celebrating until you have results in hand. Meanwhile, social events may be exciting, and if you associate with people who are enterprising and creative, then chances of a partnership will be strong. Romantic opportunities may arise, but your hectic work schedule may not allow you to exploit the situation to its highest potential. You may be promoting new ideas to people around you and win a lot of popularity amongst your peers.

This October, you may be very aggressive and ready to take on the world. Your dedication and hard work will set examples for others to follow. There may be few changes at your place of employment that could require you to be flexible and learn new procedures. There may be new assignments and jobs for you, which may bring you excellent monetary gains. Your interaction with influential people may be extremely productive and you may establish excellent new contacts. Financial gains could be plentiful, but long working hours may leave you feeling exhausted. A short vacation toward the end of the month may be helpful in charging your spirits. If you are unattached, then meeting someone who would appeal to your heart could be strong.
