Ahhh..fresh falling leaves, cool, crisp air and the start of pumpkin latte season! I kid-I wouldnt touch a pumpkin latte not made my mah own hands but for those of you who gobble that shit up (and I hear its a lot of ya'll) then this month is poppin'!
There is something about these transitional months. The feeling that we are not quite across the threshold and yet we can feel everything around us slowly changing. I am a lover of all seasons; by the time one is close to ending I am totally ready for the next. But there is a special feeling when Autumn slowly approaches. I feel a sense of creativity and slowness as I sip on my tea and watch the bucks make their way from their burrow to check in on all the neighborhood activity.
It just feels...peaceful. And that is the vibe I am really seeing here. This sense of peaceful transition. Of grounding into the energy of change. And as we all know-there are some changes which feel really, really good and others that you want to throw your chemically flavored pumpkin drink/candle/cereal at....
But the trick with change is having boundaries...another theme for this month. Knowing where your limits are and ensuring that not only do others respect those limits but that you do as well. I am notorious for thinking I can do it all, bend for everyone, make it ALL happen until I cant and then I get pissed and throw a little (ok, big) adult tantrum and whine that everyone takes from me.
Well...no. People only take what I give and like most of us, there are times I get a little loosey goosey with those boundaries and by not respecting my own limits I burn myself out. And its really unnecessary because frankly tantrums, especially on adults, just aren't hot. At all.
So the. medicine this month is get clear on your boundaries. Pay attention to what feels good and what doesn't. What is priority and what isn't? Where do you need to say no instead of yes? The more we can clearly define these limits the more we will find this transitional energy a blessing rather than a curse.
Now on to this months horoscopes.
SIKE!

Opportunities for advance and success abound this month and you, Aries will find yourself in a unique and not so shabby position of needing to choose between options. It may be two really amazing job offers or it could be a choice between staying with what you've always done or moving onto something new. The possibility is in constant motion and it can leave you feeling a little seasick. Find your center by grounding down and considering what is before you. Weigh your options and allow yourself a moment to consider.

If it feels like the entire world is on your shoulders this month, Taurus, that is because it is. You have taken on too much. You've said yes when you may have needed to say no. You lost sight of your personal boundaries and as such find your time far too stretched and your patience quickly dwindling. This is a month for getting clear on those lines that keep your energy safe. You wanted the sweet but with that also came the sour and now its time to delegate what you can and begin to whittle what you are expected to maintain right now. If doing so isn't possible-lets say that new promotion is proving a much stronger, more difficult learning curve, thats cool. But we can balance the tension of your responsibilities with the nurturing of some sacred self care. Run yourself that hot bath. Schedule that massage. Take the time to do the things that feed your spirit. It will help, trust me.

This month you are called to share more of what you are fortunate enough to have, Gemini. Even if that is your time, talents or energy, your community needs you. And this exchange is one which offers a soul enriching experience of being of service. Of knowing that you are practicing the very real truth which is that wealth of all kinds can, and should be distributed equally. This isn't about giving to get. Its not about having others sing your praises for your amazing generosity. Its about simply giving from a place of honesty and awareness that its the right thing to do.

Patience is key this month, Cancer. This is nearing completion. Things ARE coming together even if it feels like you are just encountering one challenge after another. I encourage you to have faith, to hold tight and to know that anything popping up right now is meant for your eyes. It needs your attention. Put in those final pushes. Fine tune anything needing a little buttoning up. You have achieved a state of mastery, you have come far and put in a great deal of time into this. So don't give up now. Have the discipline to see this through and harness that high energy needed to give this one final push across the finish line.

See, wishes really do come true, and this month you get the chance to celebrate with those you love, with those who've supported you along this journey. There is an almost overwhelming feeling of wholeness and completeness with this energy. That sort of jump for joy, it really can happen to you energy that allows you to see the world through a lens of unlimited possibility. Carry this with you always. Bottle this feeling up and pull from it in those moments, that will invariably come in the future, when you worry that all your hard work has been for naught. Wishes do come true. Let this play on repeat daily within.

You’ve worked exceptionally hard for this security, Virgo. You’ve put in the long hours long past quitting time for those around you. You said no to some of the frivolity of life so you could play that long game.
You’ve sweat. You’ve cried. You’ve worked yourself to the bone.
And now you are beginning to see the fruit of these labors. This month celebrate all that you’ve put into this. This whole life thing isn’t really that easy. Sometimes it can be pretty damn hard and those of us who are showing up fully present and putting in that work deserve the sweetness that comes. So take yourself out for a lavish dinner or throw one in home for you and your crew. Schedule that massage or look through design books to see how you can spruce up your space. Allow yourself to dig into what is available to you because of the hard work you've put in.

Its through what you know that you achieve this month, Libra. Take care of forming strategies to advance whatever it is that you are after. Allow emotions to take a back seat while you pay attention to the tiny details. To the thoughts running through your mind and the power they hold. Anything that smells like bullshit likely is so act shrewdly and cut through illusion. Share your truth because the world needs to hear it. This is a month where you not only can get it done but will so long as you trust what is within at all times.

This is the mastery of passion, drive and will. This is the month to put it all out there. To dare big and express yourself with gusto and flare. Your sense of self is strong this month and you know exactly what you want. People are going to gravitate towards you like a month to a flame-important people who may enrich your inner circle or offer you a helping hand in something you wish to achieve. But you must put yourself out there. Let yourself be seen and relish in the showy and very passionate energy that surrounds and galvanizes you.

You have fought battles that most would crumble under the weight of. You have established your kingdom and know that not just anyone should be allowed past the gates. Not all people have your best interests at heart and ensuring only those who do get close is a skill you master this month. Your discernment is dialed on high and you can smell bullshit before it even arrives. Pay heed to this instinct. Trust that your ability to communicate your truth will serve you well this month (and always).

What's up, buttercup? What is building a tangled web within? Why all the self doubt and self criticism? You are not perfect and nor are you meant to be, get over it. You work hard enough as it is, do you really need to add additional tension to the mix by casting shadows on yourself? Whether the conflict you face is within or you struggle with those around you know that its your confidence and inner resilience that will be your faithful servitors through it all. Trust. In you. Always.
This month is about breaking down so you can rebuild. Anything coming apart now is meant to. Its showing you where there is weakness in the foundation. Its asking for your tender loving care. It is easy to slide into resentment but life is about change and this month is especially about change. Rather than allowing yourself to be swept up within the current approach with consciousness. Receive the events unfolding around you and know that this is your chance to rebuild with intention. After all, there was a lot about what 'was' that wasn't perfect or up to snuff. Now is your chance to do it better. Bigger. And stronger.

A month of duality, polarity and balance. A month for discernment and a soft approach. Decisions are to be made and the choices you make will have a lasting impact so make them carefully. If this month requires you become comfortable with an uncertain outcome so be it. Not everything is meant to be known right now. This shouldnt be a catalyst for stagnation but rather for compromise with what is known and what is not. With what you can do and what may be beyond your control. This is a month of creating synergy and seeing all sides.
