And, speaking of frustrations, the first eclipse of the month, a new moon and solar eclipse in partnership-oriented Libra, comes on Saturday, October 14. Everyone has a different attachment style, and at times, ours doesn’t mesh perfectly with those around us. However, that’s no reason to throw out a relationship. Just know that this weekend may require extra patience. However, after all these warnings of worry, there’s a big payoff. Juno, the asteroid of commitment, enters your sign, Virgo, on Tuesday, October 17. All that listening and patience pays off, as the cosmos scatter fairy dust on your relationships. This is a wonderful time for a night of crafting, or dancing with a friend, or a dinner date. Better yet, let someone cook for you.
When we think of commitment issues in any form of partnership, it’s usually the cliche of someone running away at the first sign of intimacy. However, even if you’re in a healthy relationship or think you’re always doing the chasing rather than the running, know that fear of intimacy can take many forms. If you find yourself acting passive-aggressively towards your favorite person, especially around the time that talkative Mercury enters moody Scorpio on Saturday, October 21, double-check to make sure that this isn’t your way of dealing with the increased intimacy brought by Juno.
Scorpio season officially starts on Monday, October 23. Have you picked out your Halloween costume yet? If not, at least check out these haunting makeup looks, Virgo. Your Scorpio season assignment is to enjoy a little bit of gossip as a treat. There’s no harm in spilling tea as long as it’s harmless. In fact, for a long time, gossip wasn’t seen as something negative but as a way to covertly pass along information. At the risk of sounding like a party pooper due to the cosmic anxiety and potential for drama, the full moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus on Saturday, October 28, bring, if you decide to spend Halloweekend enjoying frivolity with your friends at home rather than at a rager, you’ll avoid drama but make memories other people will want to gossip about. Enjoy, and see you next month.
