Taurus Horoscope October 2023


Work & Routine

Seek balance in your life throughout October, especially around your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. This is where there’s peak energy while the Sun is in Libra up until the 23rd.

Plus, action planet Mars is in Libra until the 12th and communication planet Mercury is here from the 5th to the 22nd. Mars is a great planet for action and fitness but can be linked to stress and full-on activity. You may find yourself in a situation that’s out of balance or frustrating. Prioritise your well-being and don’t overload your schedule. 

Up until the 23rd, focus on your life in the here and now and take one day at time. Do the best you can with what you have. In your horoscope, Libra is about being of service to others. Volunteering or caring for other people could offer a great sense of fulfilment.

Solar Eclipse

Also this month, there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra on the 14th. This is the second eclipse in the Aries/Libra eclipse cycle. The first took place on April 20th. Therefore, the two dates could be linked. 

A New Moon Solar Eclipse promises new beginnings. Yet, eclipse lore often states that something new can only begin after an ending. Or, when you’re ready to close a door on the past. 

Solar Eclipses accelerate your growth and a Solar Eclipse in Libra is linked to your work and your health. Perhaps, one of these key areas is a priority. Alternatively, you’re ready to step back from a 9-to-5 role to follow your vocation. Notice what happens on or around the eclipse date.

Plus, look out for external events kicking in. A new job could necessitate a move. Or, perhaps your partner finds work and this impacts your life. This can play out in different ways but be alert to what happens.

You may have a big choice to make around travel or study around the eclipse date. This is because the slower-moving planet Pluto turns direct in Capricorn and this sector of your horoscope on the 11th and is caught up in the Solar Eclipse pattern. 

You may be weighing up what you can and can’t do. Or, you have to reconsider your plans. Both the Sun and Mercury clash with Pluto on the 21st. Try not to slip into impossibility if things aren’t working out and keep your options open.

Scorpio Season

Scorpio season begins early this year. Here’s the pattern:

Planets in Scorpio:

  • Mars (action/drive) – from October 12th
  • Mercury (communication) – from October 22nd
  • Sun (identity) – from October 23rd

Scorpio is your opposite star sign. This means that love and relationships could prove exciting with passion planet Mars adding to the rush of planetary activity in Scorpio and your relationship sector. Maybe, you rediscover your passion.

If you’re married or in a long-term relationship, do something adventurous as a couple and put the spark back into your sex life.

It’s here where there’s intensity and the end of the month could prove to be explosive. The 29th looks lively when Mars and Mercury come together – this combination can be enthusiastic but argumentative too.

Plus, big planet Jupiter’s fanning the flames from your star sign Taurus as it opposes both planets. A full-on love affair? A major bust-up? It could go either way and there’s another reason why.

Lunar Eclipse

This is because of a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse which takes place on the 28th. This is the last eclipse in the eclipse cycle which began in November 2021. It’s super powerful for you as it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac, highlighting relationships, also your identity, your image and profile.

Lunar Eclipses often bring matters to a head. A relationship or partnership could come to a close under the light of this eclipse. Alternatively, meeting someone new could turn your life around and fast.

Eclipses tend to coincide with drama. This could be an intense period of self-transformation when you dramatically change your attitude to life. Or, perhaps you recognise the impact your actions have on other people.

Listen carefully to your emotions during this eclipse. As it falls in your star sign Taurus, it’s imperative that you trust your instincts and listen to your intuition. What cycle is coming to completion in your life that began two years ago?

Rest of the Month’s Astrology

Events at the beginning of October are equally important for you. This is because your ruling planet Venus spent an unusually long period in Leo and your home and family sector from June onwards. On the 9th, Venus completes her journey through this sector of your horoscope and prepares to move on.

Therefore, any home or family dramas could get sorted out as soon as the month begins. Recognise what you’ve learned about yourself during the powerful Venus retrograde phase. Venus in Leo is a symbol of self-value and self-worth.

Venus moves into earth sign Virgo on the 9th where she remains for the rest of October. This is where talk planet Mercury was retrograde in August and September. Virgo rules children, love affairs, creative projects, fun and luck in your horoscope.

Get things sorted here too as October begins. Venus moving into Virgo may bring some much-needed relief, joy and happiness. Venus in Virgo and your romance sector confirms that this is likely to be a big month for your relationships, your key one-to-ones.

Eclipse Do’s & Don’ts

It’s a double whammy of eclipses this month. The Aries/Libra eclipse cycle continues while the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle comes to an end. Here are some eclipse tips:

  • Try not to fear an eclipse – they are a reminder that you’re not in control.
  • Ideally, don’t choose an eclipse date to launch a project or start something new.
  • Wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. Eclipse symbolism is shadowy and hidden.
  • Once the eclipse shadow lifts, then you can aim to take advantage of any changes that have occurred.
  • Know that eclipses are closely linked to the karmic nodes and wheel of destiny – they often act as a signpost or turning point.
