The Croft Magazine // The Croft's resident clairvoyant, Rosie Angel-Clark explains what the stars have in store for you this October.
23 September - 22 October
Beware of passive aggressive behaviour as Mars is still in retrograde in your opposite sign, volatile Aries, putting strain on all types of relationships. Don’t panic! The gentle Libra new moon on the 16th brings laid-back encounters, so embrace the opportunity to meet new people – even if it’s only virtually!
23 October - 21 November
Your ruling planet Mars is still in retrograde, making you feel a little lost. It’s an ideal time to introspect and view things objectively rather than emotionally. You may uncharacteristically change your mind about something important: believe in your ability to realise your new goals! Love takes a dreamy turn, but beware of illusions – both those you’re receiving and projecting.
22 November - 21 December
Mars is in retrograde in your house of romance, making your love life feel briefly ‘backwards’ – your desires may entirely up-end themselves! Cosmological influences over your house of ambition boost your confidence: your work in the next few weeks reaches impressive new levels, and hopes for the future shine through any clouds of doubt.
22 December - 19 January
The Sun’s warm and friendly vibes coax out your inner socialite this month, just in time for those introductions and long-awaited reunions! In love, you’re after someone who engages your mind – Venus pushes you in an unexpected direction. You never know who’ll stir your intellect!
20 January - 18 February
Handling everything with patience will pay off – your dreams are in motion even if you feel you’ve hit a wall. Venus’ movement through your house of transformation brings change to relationships. Take some time to focus on your happiness and if you want to meet someone special, you’ll be ready.
19 February - 20 March
Venus’ influence over your house of relationships creates harmony in love this month – enjoy it! Beware of arguments over money as Mars goes retrograde in your house of wealth. If you’re locking horns with flatmates over bills, it’s worth having a chat before tensions reach boiling point. Your gift for keeping the peace will come in handy!
21 March - 19 April
You’re pulled in opposing directions as the full moon in your sign on the 1st uncovers your impulsivity (is it ever far from the surface?!) and Mars retrograde demands patience. This restrictive energy could cause a romantic block – it’s only temporary! Use this month to reflect: you’ll emerge calmer and wiser, ready for the year ahead.
20 April - 20 May
Venus enters your house of leisure on 2nd, indulging your pleasure-seeking side. Hobbies and activities you love could bring an unexpected connection! The rare Taurus blue moon on the 31st brings luck your way – it’s time to put something stressful into perspective.
21 May - 20 June
Your ruling planet Mercury goes retrograde in your house of routine until 28th, so get ready for a shake up! Embrace your spiralling schedule and opportunities will follow suit! Venus’ influence suggests a possible romance with a flatmate or old friend who’s starting to see you differently.
21 June - 22 July
Make sure to only take on what you can realistically manage this month. Spending time with friends keeps you calm and boosts your ability to get everything done. If you’ve been cautious in love, Venus’ movement through your house of communication makes finally expressing yourself a breeze.
23 July - 22 August
The Sun, your ruling planet, spends most of the month in your house of wealth, illuminating potential careers. Luckily, you’ll be overrun with ideas and opportunities of all kinds! Work you put in now will pay off in the months (and years) to come, and conversations about matters of the heart flow naturally!
23 August - 22 September
The forces of Venus in your sign on the 2nd reinforce your powers of analysis and practicality in relationships. You might become critical of your connections and keen to face issues you’ve been ignoring. Get ready to rediscover a lost area of academic interest – returning to something unfinished could be exactly what you’re looking for.
