Hi Frans! That’s officially how I am greeting all of you, dear readers, this month—because, in actuality, you all are my friends. *wink* See what I did there? *wink* In all seriousness tho, I’ve been really considering my approach and end goal with Tovascopes and I realize, now, more than ever, I want our Tovascopes to use a little bit of prediction mixed with a heaping dose of intuition and affirmation for your month. They won’t be so clinical anymore. They won’t be so prescriptive. They won’t be so, “he-said-she-said.” Instead, they will sound more like your uber kewl spiritual friend who casually pulls off kimono’s year round, and wears crystals but only because they are pretty, and happens to meditate and go to church regularly.
As always, the true celestial guides are the AstroTwins, whom I go to for all of my astrological needs, but they will be interpreted by me. Your friendly, friend, who happens to just care an awful lot about how each and every one of your month goes. So, if that sounds like something you’re interested in, continue reading below and here’s to you, and Friendship month!
Happy Birthday, LIBRAAAAA!!!! You shining beacon of beauty and light and all that’s good in the world!
Libra season is all about coming into your own. The Astrotwins predict a lot of interesting things, specifically a retrograde in your sign happening one the 5th causing a need to create more clarity in your life. However, I think the goal, more than ever, for this month, is to really consider who you are. Take a moment to just shut out the haters, tune out the drama of finances, career, relationships, and just look at yourself. What makes you happy? What sets your soul on fire? What fills you up? By asking yourself those questions, not only do you begin to see the truth of yourself, but you also begin to see the truth in the situations that you are in.
You are an honest person Libra, but sometimes the image of having things appear put together and seem beautiful weighs on you, instead, consider the Japanese approach to wabi-sabi. Wabi Sabi is an artistic method and worldview in which transience and imperfection are considered beautiful. Just because something is broken and not always perfectly put together doesn’t mean that there is an absence of beauty, in fact, it’s the exact opposite.
Imperfection is beautiful, and it’s okay not to always have yourself and your life put perfectly together. By allowing yourself to be weak, vulnerable, and honest, you’ll see just how much growth and people you will be able to touch in your moments of weakness.
The note for your emotional sanity this month, Scorpio, is self-care. Literally, you’ve been all over the place last month and may be feeling a little emotionally drained.
Coincidentally, since the world is going into retrograde on the 5th, you’ll be a little less inclined to hang out and more inclined to have some alone time. Take it. In fact, consider doing those things that feed your soul spiritually. If you are up to hang out with friends, make sure it is with those people who really are true blue friends. One of the things that people often forget about Scorpio is that despite a somewhat cold or removed emotional life, lies a deep underbelly of emotion and depth, and as much as you love to really help others, sometimes you need to take some time for yourself.
Friendship month is all about considering the relationships were in, enjoying our friendships, and reevaluating the ones we don’t need. What this means for you this month, in lieu of the coming retrograde on the 5th, is that you need to prioritize your heart.
In matters of love and friendship, who are the people you are surrounding yourself with and are they really the ones that will stand by your side when times are tough? It seems slightly melodramatic to have to go through all of these questions, but now is the time to be honest with yourself and really take stock in your relationships. Your free-spirited-self loves to be unattached, but Rome wasn’t built in a day, and Rome definitely wasn’t built alone.
It seems like the Astro Twins are always telling you to stop working so hard, Capricorn, but, coincidentally, this month, they are telling you the exact opposite. Get to work! The Libra new moon is going to cause those ambitious and lofty goals to come to fruition and finally, allow you to gain some traction on those dreams.
Unfortunately, we can’t have it all, and it looks like everyone is getting a heaping dose of tested relationships this month. I think the one thing that I can say about Capricorns is that sometimes you are a little harsh, and that is definitely coming through this month. You won’t take ‘no’ for an answer, won’t mind your ‘p’s’ and ‘q’s,’ and will definitely not give two ‘f’s’ about telling someone off. Take a deep breath, try to remember who you are, and know that everything you say is a direct reflection of where your heart is.
What I love about you, Aquarius is that you never stop questioning things. For a while, I thought I had a moon in Aquarius or something because I ask a lot of questions, so much so that my dad would get annoyed with me, but don’t think of it as a bad thing, it’s a good thing.
You should never stop wondering and asking the things that other people feel too afraid to ask. It’s important to find answers, but more importantly, it matters what those answers provide. Do they bring solace? Do they cause you to become uncomfortable? Finding the fine line between the two feelings is difficult but it’s a walk you must master, especially in this season. You might find yourself reassessing a lot of your current situation, but remember, this is your forte. Write about it, journal, blog, podcast, find some sort of creative outlet, and allow your the questions to burst out of you, the answers will come when you’re ready to receive them.
Your kind of known for being a master of switching modalities and swimming through the canals of emotions effortlessly. Like how I included another fish-like quality to your October-scope? I try. I try. But in all seriousness, this month is going to challenge your partnerships specifically in your work relationships. Are you sublimating your creative energy to appease someone else? Stop. But, maybe come up with a plan first.
You’ve been feeling extra sensitive lately. Pisces, remember that your dreams are worth it, your opinions matter, and regardless of how you feel you deserve happiness. Bending over backward to appease assholes that don’t give a shit about you isn’t worth it.
That’s your October advice. ILY!
So Libra is your opposite, Aries, and when its Libra season, things can feel a little disorienting. If you’ve been feeling a lot of interpersonal conflicts arising, or have been having conversations that lead to total full-blown arguments, then try to keep your opinions to yourself. I know—I know, that might seem impossible, but one of the things that we all have to consider is that words matter and words cannot be taken back. Aries.
You are such a fearless leader and capable of so many great things, just take time to consider what kind of person you want to be and what kind of mark you want to leave on the world.
Have things been coming against you in your personal life lately, Taurus? With a retrograde happening on October 5th, it might be the perfect time to take a second and pause. What are those areas in your life that need working on? What isn’t working for you? What isn’t nourishing your soul? You have such a tendency to be a hard worker, and push past the subtle nuances of situations, but remember, the devil is in the detail.
I want you to take a minute this month and just breathe. Consider the way you are going about your relationships, work, friendships, and try to assess what is important to you about each of them. This might be an excellent time to break ties and form some new positive habits that carry you on through winter.
Evade and avoid is your middle name. Unfortunately, this month isn’t going to be so easy to do either.
Libra season is going to put all of those things that you want on a platter in front of you and you are going to have to decide. No one can have it all and no one get’s to take the easy route. If you have stumbled through your emotions in the past, now is the time to let them in. Welcome them. Greet them like the old friend that they are—by doing this, you are going to open up yourself to a lot of stabilizing energy—not to mention, joy. Decisiveness is something that is learned, it’s not always inherent, and you a quick study, so get to deciding on the things you want.
If you’ve been feeling a lot of chaotic energy lately, it’s because there has been.
Honestly, with the whole Brett Kavanaugh situation and now tsunami’s in Japan, it seems like the world is just flailing around and all you want to do is hide at home. That’s okay, Cancer, I don’t blame you. TBH, I’d be happy to join you. BUT, the universe is asking for you to be a participant this season. Don’t allow the pressures of the world to weigh on you, instead, find your space in them and question them. Work through the tension, lean into the pain, and don’t shirk your feelings, you can always just return home if it gets overwhelming, but right now, the universe needs your comforting energy.
Picture this, you’re sitting in your car, driving back from work, a song you like comes on the radio, and bam! You are in full on tears crying on the 405. Not you? Just me? It’s okay to admit it, Leo, I have the same issue, sometimes it really difficult to distinguish our emotions. It’s not that you’re a bad communicator, because your not, its that you sometimes can be disconnected from your emotions as a way to protect yourself.
I want you to try and sit down with yourself for a moment each day and really just feel. Emote in any way you can. If you want to write, then write, if you need to scream, then scream. Libra season is going to put these communication issues at the forefront for you and really allow you to delve deeper, making you a formidable leader in the season to come.
Have you been feeling a little pressure on your financial situation these past few months, Virgo? If so, Libra season is here to help you figure out what’s sustainable and reasonable on the money front. Time to look at the books, crunch the numbers, assess, and plan.
This also means that you might need to pull back from some random spending habits, i.e., concerts every Saturday and loafers from Celine. If there is any advice I can give you this month, it would be not to forget your friends and family. Remember them? The people who were celebrating your birthday season just a few weeks ago? Yeah, give them a ring, they wanna hear from you.
