October Horoscopes

This Series is brought to you by Skydiamond. Made From The Sky To Protect The Earth.

Welcome to The SBT Astrology Club. A new horoscope series where each month we seek guidance from the stars on how to live in line with our values and protect our planet. Read below for October's Edition written by our resident Astrologist Sade, aka The Astrology Vixen.

October's Intentions ✨

The season of inner rootedness, intimacy and renewal colours the month. As you sink into these themes, we can all get back to our usual communication stations because Mercury retrograde ends on October 3rd. Over the past few weeks, you’ve had the opportunity to reflect on which adjustments you can make in your life that can bring in more peace, harmony and clarity. 

On October 9th, the Full Moon in Aries opens the gates to charge forward. This is an opportunity to explore your personal freedom, limitless courage and inner power. This time frame will support you to make brave choices in your life that can help you break out of restrictions and limitations to help you to see the inner warrior. The last cosmic portal on October 25th, is the New Moon Solar Scorpio eclipse. The fates take their rightful position to pull the strings of our destinies. During this time, you may reflect on the transitions and phases that have shaped your perspectives of who you are and your perceptions of life. 

This is an extraordinary time to break old mindsets and beliefs cycles that make you feel as though you don’t have agency over your life. When you begin to identify what makes the most profound impact on you, you find clarity to see what is healthily contributing to your life and what adjustments need to be made. 


 

Aries 🪐

How do you navigate experiences which challenge your values? Stay true to your ethos, as you may be cosmically invited to see how committed and true you are to your own principles. Word is bond. Sift out which eco-conscious principles are for decoration, and which one’s you can count on. 

Journal question: What are your non-neigotiable sustainable values?

 

Taurus 🪐

Move with pure intention. Strategically draw up your biomimicry master plan behind the scenes to drown out the noise and minimise distractions. Pour your time and energy into a single focus. Simplicity is worth more than gold.  

Journal question: How do you measure your sustainability impact?

 

Gemini 🪐

It would be wise to think before you act to avoid any pit-falls. Your Einstein mind may need some lubricant to tinker on effectively. The beauty of time is that it’s timeless. Avoid the restless urge to beat the clock and cultivate new foundations for sustainable impact. Your call to action is to initiate diverse conversations in your network to stretch the boundaries to find solutions to existing problems. 

Journal question: How do I use my voice to spark boundary-breaking sustainable conversations?

 

Cancer 🪐

What sustainable foundations in the present needs some more reinforcement and some delicate TLC? When you look from the outside in, you already have what you need. Take a step back, and review what sustainable initiatives that you have in place, and call in some devoted allies to spruce up the infrastructure.

Journal question: How can I use an regenerative approach to maximise my sustainable efforts?

 

Leo 🪐

Step on to the podium and rally up the troops to create long lasting change. You’re going to need a memorable campaign tagline to make the plan stick. Be the first to ‘just do it’ Before you can blink twice those looking from afar will volunteer for the cause.

Journal question: How can I become more self-motivated and invest myself into new initiatives?

 

Virgo 🪐

Before Mr. Monopoly can allow you to pass go, study the strategy of the game. Connect the dots to see how you can go green on a bigger scale. Craft the frameworks for your green enterprise by forming partnerships with empire building minds. New worlds are first built in the fortress of your imagination. Dive in. 

Journal question: How can I use climate optimism to think expansively?

 

Libra 🪐

When you nourish your body you nourish the earth. Did you know 29% of all greenhouse emissions come from packaging, and guess what? Food take-outs create a considerable amount of waste. Eat consciously, and choose eateries that source their delectable ingredients from nearby farms. 

Journal question: How can I create eco-conscious rituals around my diet?

 

Scorpio 🪐

 

Living eco-consciously is an act of liberation. Anything dousing your inner flame will be blown out by strong winds. Give yourself room to figure out whether your eco-conscious goals are conducive to your lifestyle or whether you’ve been trying to live up to expectations outside of yourself.

Journal question: In what ways are my eco-conscious goals pandering to environmental perfectionism?

 

Sagittarius 🪐

 

The portal to your creative expression is the reckoning you didn’t know you needed. to see your What calls out to your heart? Your eco-conscious efforts has the power to profoundly move the hearts and minds of your community. 

Journal question: How can I envision a brighter future even if my vision is still formless?
 

Capricorn 🪐

Consider who can offer their allyshiip to support you to bring your visions into 3D. What is your ecoconscious blueprint of the future? The time is now to wear your tin foil hat in style. Take your position as a new age hero, and create the new eco-conscious zeitgeist with each step. 

Journal question: How can the innovations of the past inform the future?

 

Aquarius 🪐

Channel your warrior approach to show the young how to love the planet. As you’re cruising on a surge of infinite momentum, be the leader dreams are made of. Without marking the coordinates on the map, the new way is lost in the ether. 

Journal question: How can you draw up a long term eco-conscious plan that the next generation can follow?


Pisces 🪐

Catch your breath and take as many pauses as you need to. Before you go global, go local. Take your binoculars with you and discover the recyclable treasures that have been hovering in your blindspots. The multiverse is right on your doorstep. 

Journal question: How can you expand your current sustainable goals by doing less instead of more?
