Love has many forms. In fact, there aren’t even enough words in the English language to cover all the meanings of love. The love you have for your sister is different than the love for your friends. The love you have for your partner is different than the love you have for your home, or mother nature. There are many ways and many things to love, and this month is all about embracing it all. Let love be in abundance by channeling Venus, which enters Libra on the 14th. Venus rules love and harmony, and is highlighted this month. Learn how to love, especially yourself. Honor your past and rock the present moment. Create harmony through truth and healing, beginning now.

October is a time of beginning to turn inwards. The colors are more vibrant, the air is crisper, and a sense of clarity is gracing you this month. This year is all about the fire rooster in the Chinese zodiac — reflective of the phoenix. It is about learning hard lessons, maybe even falling and failing, then rising up even stronger than ever. You may have had all those lessons this past summer with the slew of retrogrades and eclipses, but now the dust is settling, and you can take a deep breath. There are no retrogrades this month, meaning that things are more in the flow than they have been since April 2017.

The full moon in Aries on October 5th, called the “Harvest Moon,” is a time for reflection and pride on how far you’ve come. Use this time to think about any struggles and the impact they had. It is amazing how things that once held so much energy have a way of becoming less intense over time. Give yourself some major props for overcoming everything you did throughout life. Part of being human is messing up, being hurt, and experiencing situations where you will definitely need some healing.

The new moon in Libra on October 19th is all about cultivating new relationships. Since the moon is in harmony with Mars and Venus, relationships and connection are at a focus. Use this time to fully immerse yourself in authenticity. Who are you at your core? What parts of yourself do you tend to keep to yourself when you feel vulnerable? Try your hardest to connect with new people in the most authentic way you can. The more real you are, the more people are going to follow your lead. This is the key to creating deep, meaningful relationships that feed your curiosity and soul. Always respect the vulnerability of others as well, just as you would wish them to respect yours.

You have made it here. Through everything you have experienced, the fear and hurt you faced, the tears you shed, and the falls you have had — you are here, in this present moment, wiser and stronger than ever. You are becoming unstoppable with every passing day. Go deep this month, with yourself and with others. Love, heal, honor, and feel. Congratulations on always continuing to rise up.
