October Horoscopes 2017: Libra
Libra: September 23–October 22

The past twelve months have seen a huge emphasis on personal growth for Libra, and you’re now able to blossom beautifully into the role you’ve curated.

The 14th puts you back in action, but the first two weeks of October are better suited to a retreat—potentially couples' work or a great escape with an exciting plus-one.

You’ll receive plenty of admiring glances as the month unfolds, and confidence can truly soar. Embrace a fresh start on the 19th, dedicating yourself resolutely towards your goals. You’ll soon be focused on material gains derived from your efforts, so for now, close the door on the past and acknowledge progress to date.

Scorpio: October 23–November 21

It’s an exciting time of transition for Scorpio. On October 10th, the planet of luck, adventure and growth enters your sign for a thirteen-month stint, so you can look forward to a personal journey of great proportions in the year ahead.

First and foremost, however, it's time to clear the decks in preparation and anticipation. The month begins on a social high, with incredible connections to be made, but by mid-month you’ll be keen to fully retreat.

Towards the 19th, get clear on the shifts you want to instigate, as there’s plenty to be done in private. By month's end, your goals are firmly in sight and ready to be explored.

October Horoscopes 2017: Gemini
Gemini: May 21–June 21

There’s a fine balance between work and pleasure for Gemini in October, as the stars provide plenty of fun, but are steering you towards a busy streak.

Abundant Jupiter has delivered the gift of creativity, romance, and play in the last twelve months, but on the 11th moves into sultry Scorpio and the most productive sector of your horoscope, upping the tasks before you.

Still, there’s plenty of room for love, and if you haven’t seen sparks arrive on your doorstep, hit the dating scene. Sporting events, shows, and entertainment hold extra promise, so book tickets for music, theatre or check out your local art scene—enjoy, Twinstar!
