Precisely when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder or more intense, well, um, October happens. Here’s what’s in store for your October 2020 horoscope.
For starters, October is a “once in a blue moon” month, because it will be bookended by TWO full moon. The first, in fiery Aries, ignites the skies on October 1, accusing into the month like a headstrong Ram. Here in the U.S ., as we count down to the historic and nail-biting November 3 Election Day, the hasten to the canvas( and hopefully the mailbox) will be ON.
Then on Halloween( October 31 ), a second full moon arrives in Taurus, astride changemaker Uranus at an exact severity. Who needs a costume? With the full moon and disruptor Uranus in the radically-real sign of the Bull, we’ll be treated to an eyeful–and a sky full–of intense intensity. Who needs a costume and a disguise? With Taurus, what you see is what you get, and in the spotlight of the full moon, that could be a whole lotta in-your-face energy, desegregated with curveball plot quirks sufficed up by Uranus.
This is all against the backdrop of the Sun moving through Libra, the signal of match, until October 22, which we HOPE can help bring some semblance of temperance to our lives. Take things as slow and steady as you are eligible to. When chaos is in the air, the best thing you can do sometimes is either ease off the gas or even stand still.

The icy dwarf planet will zoom ahead in good fellowship, traveling alongside swelling Jupiter and organized Saturn, which both pointed long retrogrades last-place month. With this trio powering up the zodiac sign of governments, hierarchies, business and the economy, there’s even more intensity ahead for the final month of the presidential race.
As if that wasn’t enough, Mercury–the planet that rules technology, communications and the postal system–will turn retrograde from October 13 to November 3, splitting his backspin between Scorpio and Libra. That’s right, tribes, in a year where many voters will use mail-in referendums to avoid Covid exposure, the planet governing the USPS is gonna get wonky on us.
From October 27 to November 3( that’s Election Day ), Mercury will reverse into Libra, the sign of justice. Already the world is rightly concerned about whether we’ll have a fair election, and Mercury’s U-turn only validates that anxiety. As Founding Father and first-ever U.S. Postmaster General Ben Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” So get thee to the mailbox with your filled-in ballot, stat!
