Capricorn, with your planetary ruler Saturn now direct in your sign, you’re coming alive and releasing your powerful emotions and sexual desires — this is something the world, and particularly your romantic interests, have deeply been craving from you! Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all direct in your sign, which means that your desire to have sex with someone (or people) who have been loving you through your chaos, through your internal shifts, and through your sadness will increase. It’ll feel like you suddenly see who has always been there for you, loving you through the lonelier moments, and now you’re really turned on by them — even if they’re a long-term partner!
The sensual energy and sexual desires you feel this month will be undeniable, particularly since Mercury, the Planet of Communication, is in Scorpio, the sign of sex and transformation. All those fantasies you’ve been having this year are likely to get closer and closer to being a reality this Libra Season, Capricorn, as long as you get out of your own way and release any feelings of denial regarding what you deserve to receive, and when you deserve to receive it. If you’ve been putting off sexual pleasure because you want your career to be “just right”, you’ll end up feeling quite sexually frustrated this month, because Mars, the Planet of Action, is retrograde, which means you’ll experience professional slow downs. On top of that, Mercury Retrograde begins October 13 – November 3, and this can also slow down the way you assert yourself and make sure your needs are met. The only way to feel fulfilled this month is to practice patience with yourself and others, and be willing to repeat yourself to ensure people know what you really want.
The Libra New Moon on the 16th activates your sector of career or reputation, which means if you have a work bae or a deep longing for someone connected to your profession, October 16th – October 26th may be the ideal moments for planting seeds towards that connection and intentionally making moves. If it’s not too risky and your body and soul are aligned, let yourself go for it. The transition from Libra Season to Scorpio Season right after that New Moon cycle is ideal for trusting one’s instincts and deepening one’s passions. If you end up in an entanglement after work, or during a business meeting (perhaps exchanging sexy photos in between Zoom meetings), you’ll find yourself laughing at yourself more and encouraging yourself to explore and have fun, even if you’re unsure where it will lead. Learning to appreciate sexual pleasure for the sake of it, without having to analyze what it means — whether this is with someone new or with a recurring connection — is a major lesson of the month of October. Taking yourself less seriously, and your lover(s) less seriously, will actually increase the depths of your attraction and commitment to each other, and allow you both to have a breather from life’s intensity.
Once the second Full Moon of the month strikes on October 31st, this time in Taurus, your sector of fate, true love and adventure will be activated, which means that a situationship, romantic connection, or crush from the past six months may come full circle around this time. Either you’ll end up releasing all your sexual tension by having a massive self-pleasure sesh, and/ or you’ll invite your partner(s) to join you under the full moon and let out all their angst by merging your bodies together. Whether it’s makeup sex or breakup sex, the sex will feel explosive, and even healing. 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. This month, sexual intimacy is calling your name, Capricorn, and it’s up to you to let it know exactly what you desire.
