Welcome to your monthly horoscope for October 2022—it's a jampacked month! October is one of the most crucial months to pay attention to, as a lot of key planetary players will perform significant changes. A total of three planets (Mercury, Pluto, Saturn) and two asteroids end their retrogrades, instigating ambition and forward movement. Eclipse season also begins towards the end of the month, adding a dash of “destined energy” to an already eventful October.
We begin the month in Libra season, the archetype of beauty, harmony, and artistry. We will desire to relate and spend time with people, as Libra is one of the most social signs. We will also be seeking pleasure and we shall find it. With Mercury going direct on October 2 after the third Mercury retrograde of 2022 and lover Venus being incredibly strong until October 22, fixing relationship issues and attracting love and romance is now much easier. October 22, in particular, is an auspicious day for dates and even for attracting the partner of our dreams, as Venus meets with the Sun.
