Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope


October 2016

Widen your social circle and the rest will follow! In October, you've officially entered a happy zone, as the Sun soars through Libra and your free-spirited, friendship-focused eleventh house of teamwork until October 22. To date, 2016 has had its challenges (just ask your signmate Brad Pitt) with tough Saturn in your sign and a heavy sense of responsibility. It's not that you mind working hard, Sagittarius—you just like to know that your efforts will pay off.
While that answer may not completely arrive this month, you'll have an even bigger, better epiphany: People, not accomplishments, make the world go round. Not only is the Sun in Libra, but your ruling planet, expansive Jupiter, is here from September 9, 2016 until October 10. 2017. As Jupiter tucks into your outgoing and visionary eleventh house for the next year, a flood of inspiration returns. Your multicultural, multi-everything sign is happiest when surrounded by a vibrant crew of kindred spirits and eclectic thinkers…and abundant Jupiter brings them in droves. Even people you've never really connected with could turn out to be surprising new friends and allies.
The eleventh house rules technology, so a digital project or platform could also link you to fascinating new friends. Overall, you're ready to stop struggling by doing it all alone. You could even champion a humanitarian or socially responsible cause now, since global Jupiter here stokes your world-bettering desires. For inspiration, pick up Seth Godin's classic book, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us.   
There's one moment, however, where the spotlight is yours and yours alone. On October 16, the annual Aries full moon—a potent supermoon —illuminates your fifth house of passion, self-expression and love. Fame could come calling as you're recognized for your trailblazing ideas and colorful personality. This could be a romantic high point…or it could also bring drama, especially since rebellious and disruptive Uranus is traveling in close proximity. There's a fine line between being powerfully irreverent and just being straight-up tasteless, Sagittarius.
Volcanic emotions could also erupt today, as you'll be prone to knee-jerk reactions. On the plus side, simmering chemistry could lead to one of the most memorable sexual experiences you've had in weeks—or longer! You won't consider any consequences today—you want what you want and you want it NOW. Yep, that lusty and headstrong Sagittarius nature is out full-force. A pregnancy is also possible since the fifth house rules fertility.
The pace winds down after October 22, when the Sun sinks into Scorpio and your restful twelfth house for a month. Turn your focus inward, taking a short break from your manic social schedule to tie up loose ends, process any undealt-with emotions and do some spiritual healing. Guard against any seasonal viruses going around, as you're more susceptible to catching them since you could feel a bit run-down. Don't feel guilty saying "no"— overcommitting will lead you straight to burnout. Instead, focus on finishing and enjoying what you've already got on your plate, and save your energy for Sagittarius season, which starts November 21!
Time to move on? The October 30 Scorpio new moon could bring a powerful moment of closure that leads you to your next life chapter. New moons mark beginnings, but the twelfth house is all about endings. This lunation could help you make a powerful transition, leaving behind something old or outmoded so that you can move confidently toward the new. Communication planet Mercury is also traveling close to the new moon, which could spark a healing dialogue, a moment of forgiveness or an artistic breakthrough.
