October 2021

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

Do you want to lead people, or do you just want power? You can still be in charge with both methods, but the latter gives you success, but the former gives you both success and respect. You will be challenged this month but keep your wits about you. Consider power dynamics and hidden social interactions. You reap what you sow, therefore lay down the wise words and plans, and others will get the message, be it straight up or subliminally. Set aside time for play but avoid risky gambles. You may regret any impulsive purchases you make. Ask yourself, do I need this?

THEME OF THE YEAR, Not everything comes easy, so work hard and do what’s right for you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

If you want to have an audience, you actually need to have something to say. Work this into your daily routine this month, and you can get the momentum rolling along with you. This month is not the month to sit back and sip a margarita. It is about rolling up your sleeves, getting the job done.  Only once you have done that, then you can have a cold beer with the gang. It is time to put your visions into action, and, yes, it will take some work and movement. Taurus can stick with it if that is what you are being asked to do. Follow your muse.

THEME OF THE YEAR, The same old isn’t working for you. Shake things up for the better.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Don’t worry about changing your mind but ensure that any arrogance is checked at the door first. This way, when you have to change what you said, it doesn’t come back to bite you in the butt. The is nothing wrong with wanting to express yourself but do it in a manner that will score you points if you are right or wrong. Even with right or wrong, consider events in life as lessons that will strengthen your resolve. Your friends are here to help you, not to hinder you. While you are strutting your stuff, it is not a matter of you against your others. It only becomes an issue when you are in people’s faces.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your choices decide your future. Be part of the decision!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Not every month is going to be smooth sailing. With struggles with partners and arguments at home, you need to learn patience and not take things personally. Sometimes other people are dealing with their own issues. Focus on your creative side and look to get inspired by others – not in a competitive way but rather in a way that focuses on building your strengths. What is important to you? I would also be careful in money matters as you can indulge in some irresponsible spending. Think about why you want to make that acquisition.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your values will be challenged. Learn to adapt but also to stick to your essence.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

This month will be an emotional period, and you need to stay focused on the situation at hand. Keep in mind the times change, as do we. What will work best is to anticipate where things are going. While some of you might have a crystal ball, those who don’t can rely on gut feel to plan their next move. There will be some mix-ups at home, but if you focus on being Zen, then your attention can be applied to the crucial issues at hand. Choose who you want to associate with this month: the one who hinders you or the one who promotes growth.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Revolutions don’t have to be destructive; they can be creative. Make things happen.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

Watch out for any unnecessary acquisitions you make this month. If they are necessary, then there is no problem if you do your research beforehand, or you’ll have regrets. This goes for additional responsibilities, not just things. Look at things around you as symbols. You will be able to glean information from the most innocuous things, which can be very helpful with tasks around work and in everyday life. Don’t forget to take notes and record these findings as you may forget next month when they will become very handy. Social activities will lead to new philosophies and ideas which can change your points of view.

THEME OF THE YEAR , A gift can get used and put to use or just put in the closet. Your choice!

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Typically, you are Miss Congeniality, but the energy driving you this month is one of the warpath. You will make up your mind quickly, and nobody and I mean nobody, is getting in your way. Don’t just act out because you feel you have been wronged. There are always two sides to the story. Think things through and learn from your experiences. You tend to like to compare yourself to others. You may have trouble with self-expression, and seeing what others are doing might irritate you. Stop. Think things through because we can’t be on the ball all the time. 

THEME OF THE YEAR , True change comes from within. If you force the revolution, then life goes your way.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

It is time to think on your own. While we are all conditioned by our past, is it really necessary to continue with these old ways? I’m not asking you to shy away from confrontations. However, if you do get into the ring, make sure it is worth the effort. It may be better to grab your coat and go out the door to a positive place. Be observant this month. While not everything you see will be worthwhile, you can always glean understanding and insight. What is essential is your time and the value it has. You can gain wisdom from mundane tasks.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Who said an old dog can’t learn new tricks. Always advance.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Frivolity and social fun is the theme for this month.  That is good because the one thing that might be a pain is negotiations or dealing with institutions such as banks or telecom providers. Make sure you take notes and record all your transactions. There is an urge to travel but watch your finances. Just make sure you have budgeted for everything. Another thing you have to keep in mind is that relationships have ups and downs, so be wary of the so-called “greener” grass on the other side of the fence, as a little bit of crazy can become a lot of crazy.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You know what you want, but you have to work to get it.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

Are you ready for an argument? Work will be a bit of a struggle this month but watch who you get into a war of words with. The boss just might not like it, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a pushover.  Stand your ground when you have to, and that will show others that you mean business. Maybe it is because you need a change in your life, be it a new job, a new look, or new hobbies. This urge for change might alienate some of your friends, but friends should accept you for who you are. If they don’t, then you have to hook up with people of the same vibe. Go with the flow.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Learn from your ups and downs and make necessary, not whimsical changes.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Other people might be getting you riled up emotionally. What you need is to figure out what is triggering you and not how to avoid them or how to get even with them. Is it that you spend time socialising with work colleagues more than friends, or are you not getting as much recognition as they are? Everyone has their time in the spotlight, so things eventually even out, and you’ll get your turn. In the meantime, just put on the most sociable show you can. This could be a period where your spiritual pursuits are piqued, even if only for curiosity. 

THEME OF THE YEAR , Growth comes from reflection and putting efforts into improvement. Make the change.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Pisceans are known as dreamers. As the most spiritual and psychic sign in the zodiac, there can be a blur between the other side and the real world. The challenge they sometimes face is distinguishing between dreams and reality. Remember that what works for you is not always what works for the other person. The best way to ground yourself during this period is to do physical work and just focus on completing mundane tasks. Also, don’t be so set in your ways that you are like concrete. Accept that life is cyclical and more fluid than that. You know this, but it is important at this time.

THEME OF THE YEAR, You have to put in effort to achieve things, so don’t give up.
