Libra Monthly Horoscope: October 2015You are cautious as the month begins, yet a surge of creativity feeds your optimism, encouraging you to overcome recent obstacles. Your discretion comes from the Sun’s proximity to conservative Saturn in your fair-minded sign, yet it quickly gives way to marvelous possibilities brought by Mercury’s connection with selfassured Jupiter and ingenious Uranus on October 1 and 2. By October 3, when Mercury slips into Libra, your objectivity helps you maintain your cool while responding to unexpected twists and turns in your chosen path. The ambivalent Libra New Moon on October 7 is like your personal New Year’s Day, reflecting your desire to make balanced choices that are best for everyone. You are hesitant to decide one way or another because you can see potential in both options.
Your key planet, Venus, turns retrograde in your 2nd House of Self-Worth on October 8 to complicate matters and rattle your confidence. Although time marches on, your heart turns backward and inward in search of happiness, lost love, or buried treasure. You can’t recapture the past, but revisiting it can help you make the most of the present on November 18, when Venus resumes its direct motion. It’s time to bring a relationship issue to the front burner when a friend or lover agitates you on October 22 as the self-centered Aries Full Moon falls in your 7th House of Partners. Your first choice might be to acquiesce, yet the Sun’s entry into driven Scorpio on October 23—where it joins Mercury, Venus, and Mars—arms you with commitment to your own agenda, making you less willing to compromise.
Libra Key Dates October 2015
Instead of surrendering as life get tough, inspire yourself with your vision of what the future may bring. Imagining the best-case scenario is easy on October 1, when mental Mercury receives an encouraging boost from Jupiter. Mercury’s opposition to reactionary Uranus the next day requires you to make a quantum leap, perhaps revealing your feelings to someone special. A sexy Venus-Mars conjunction in seductive Scorpio on October 3 can bring passion in the romance or finance department, but an unpredictable Mars-Uranus hookup on October 4 can increase the sizzle—or instantly break the connection.
It’s hard to decide what image to present or even to know what you want on October 7, when the New Moon in ambiguous Libra temporarily dampens your social life. You long to see yourself in the mirror of someone else’s soul, but may not find anyone to meet you at this profound level. Communicator Mercury aligns with stern Saturn on October 8—the same day that sweet Venus starts her backward dance in your 2nd House of Values. If you don’t have to deal with disapproval from someone you respect, you might be your own harshest critic. A diffusive Mercury-Neptune alignment on October 9 now offers you an escape route from an unpleasant set of circumstances.
Solemn Saturn in your sign rubs up against nebulous Neptune in your 5th House of Self-Expression on October 27, inducing free-floating anxiety or melancholy. You may struggle with recent decisions, wondering where you’d be now if you’d made different choices. But your malaise doesn’t last, for motivating Mars enters adventurous Sagittarius on the 28th to put your life back on the move. The Sun’s conjunction with beautiful Venus in your 2nd House of Self-Worth sweetens the picture by inspiring you to invest in your own pleasure.
