Aries October

Aries, the Full Moon in your sign on October 1st will light you up in all ways, particularly sexually. There may have been someone on your mind since your annual new moon took place six months ago, and you’ll find that your desire to connect and merge with them deepens considerably as the month begins. Since Mars, your planetary ruler, is currently spending its last full month retrograde in your sign, you may be tempted to get back into sexual and emotional scenarios that may feel tantalizing, but may ultimately be detrimental. At the same time, the full moon and Mars in your sign have a combined energy that makes you wiser, and also more magnetic, than before. So even if you do backtrack and end up in bed with an ex during the firs half of the month, you’ll be clear about your intentions and you’ll set the necessary boundaries.

Not all sex has to be forever sex. Not all lovers have to be in your life forever either. With Pluto, the Planet of Transformation, ending its retrograde in Capricorn on the 4th, your sector of reputation is activated, and you may suddenly find yourself thinking of who deserves to have access to you long-term and why. This may lead to you dreaming of cuddling with one specific bae, even if you’re single and mingling. Your sexual fantasies will be at an all-time high, especially if there’s someone in your life you’ve been flirting with or sexting regularly this year. When combined with Venus, the Planet of Love, transiting Virgo for several weeks this month, your standards and sexual desires are strong, and you won’t find yourself settling for less than mindblowing, soul-stirring orgasms and consistent moans of bliss. Watch the visual for Dossé-Via’s “Love Mantra” if you need cosmic inspiration to help activate the divine love you deserve — and it’ll also turn you on too.

Self-pleasure may be speaking to you this month, with Chiron, the asteroid that rules our inner wounds, also retrograde in your sign and playing a significant role in our sexual healing. Even if this year you found yourself having many options or great rounds of sex, you’ll find that this Libra Season in particular is asking you to assess the harmony, balance, and reciprocity in your connections. Are you the main one who usually initiates sex? Do you feel like your talents are taken for granted? Are you fully satisfied and out of breath after each round? Do you want more, less, harder, stronger, deeper, longer? Time to speak up, Aries, particularly before October 13th, because once Mercury, the Planet of Communication, begins its three-week retrograde in Scorpio and Libra, you may find yourself suddenly being more introverted as a lover, and your partner(s) will be wondering what they can do to please you, sexually and spiritually. Show them with your words, with your touch, with your passionate eye contact. Let them get to know your body through non-verbal communication… Become their favorite muse to play with.

Once the Libra New Moon strikes on October 16th, a more adventurous and flirtatious side of your emerges as your partnership sector is activated for the next six months, and it’s kicked up a notch on October 27th, when Venus shifts out of Virgo and enters Libra, further intensifying the energy in your marriage sector. The first and final week of the month are likely to be the most sexually stimulating for you, Aries. Whether you’re partnered or riding solo, open yourself up to ecstatic sexual pleasure — it’s what you deserve, and it’s what you’ll receive. Many people may come on to you around the Taurus Full Moon on the 31st, but only a select few will make the shortlist and get access to your intoxicating energy. Whoever steals your heart, or deepens your levels of trust, will end up feeling like the luckiest human alive if they connect sexually with you around the Halloween full moon — a completely free-flowing side of you will emerge and leave them shook, panting, and in complete awe of your sublime existence.
