Fire up the pumpkin spice candles and let it all be illuminated. With sword-wielding Libra leading the charge, October asks us to stand steady in the spaces we’ve cleared and start to rebuild. 

While Libra is sometimes pigeonholed as the zodiac’s peace-keeping romantic, this dynamic equilibrator asks us to first see what’s in front of us before we scramble to make it “right.” Which rooms of your emotional house are calling out for your loving gaze? Take October to toss some extra tender throw pillows into the forgotten cubbyholes and corners.
