I'm resisting the urge to hide under my covers after the last time Mercury was in retrograde (Can you say "cracked phone" three times without conjuring an evil spirit?), but once again, Mercury will be in retrograde on October 4th. This time, I'm approaching it with a no-fear attitude-- my favorite season is finally here, and I will make the most of it. Take that Mercury!
Whether you're a Libra or a Virgo, October has something good in store for all of us. What's awaiting you? Read on and see how you should embrace the next several weeks with your October Horoscope.
Libra (September 23 to October 22) -- Happy Birthday Libra! This month, live by one philosophy: treat yo self. We have your birthday party dress ready and waiting as you make your way from one party to another. Celebrate all month long without a worry in the world. As long as you have some Eyeko Hydrogel Eye Patches ready to revive and brighten your eyes after an all-night party, the night before will be but a distant and happy memory. Make sure to keep some kale in your refrigerator for an energy boost. You'll need all the energy you can get-- they don't call it a super food for nothing!
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) -- Don't worry Scorpios, we haven't forgotten about those of you with an October birthday! Have a chic bag on hand and ready to carry around all those birthday gifts (or just well-deserved treats if you're a November baby). Stash some Herbal Rose Blotting Papers in your new bag for a quick touch-up and a crisp apple (thank you fall!) for a quick and healthy snack.
Saggitarius (November 22nd to December 21) -- Take time for yourself this month with afternoon walks, and keep warm as October brings the full transition from summer to fall with a trendy cape. During your walks, protect your skin with Philosophy's Hope in a Jar moisturizer-- it's a lifesaver. Truly, the name says it all. As long as you have a piece of pumpkin pie waiting for you at home (don't forget the whipped cream!), your afternoons will be golden.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19) -- Capricorns, switch it up this month and make hats your new staple. We recommend an everlasting classic from Lanvin. On your way out the door, throw on your new cap and a dab of Lip Plumper for an elegant, long-lasting look. As for food, well, we're switching it up right? Try something you swore you'd never eat (we want to hear this adventure in the comments below!).
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) -- Who says you can't wear white after labor day? Let your rebellious nature fly with nails painted in Chanel White Varnish. Pair with a lacey fringe Kimono for an ultra-chic look that will leave everyone asking, "Whose that stunning figure in white?" Celebrate your praise with a cupcake, it's much-deserved.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20) -- Word on the street is that Rihanna is also a Pisces-- anyone else still mourning the loss of her Instagram account? This October, keep her account in your thoughts (or your eyes more like it), with Bad Girl Riri's exclusive Eyeshadow Palette for M.A.C. Strap a watch on your wrist as you make your way from location to location, you are a busy one after all (just don't forget to eat… we recommend a freshly made smoothie like those from Juice Press).
Aries (March 21 to April 19) -- Aries, take a break and perfect your pout with Proenza Schouler's limited edition MAC lipstick. With Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the brand's designing geniuses, you'll have selfies upon selfies to prove that your pout is on point. Plus, with a pair of kickass Boots and a cappuccino in the shot (coffee is an art!), your Instagram shots will be A+.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) -- Taurus, you are all about comfort and consistency. Not ready to let go off your summer wardrobe just yet? It's okay, we aren't ready to let go of our skirts and shorts either. Splurge on a last minute summer staple with a metallic skirt that will make you glimmer (literally). Add even more shine with Dior's Smoothing Lip Balm, and while you're still embracing summer, have one more go with a classic summer recipe-- fish tacos!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) -- Geminis, be fearless. Embrace your dramatic side with a fur coat (faux, of course!) as you strut your stuff around town. Black or neutral-colored? Take your pick. Add even more drama with ultra-dark lashes courtesy of Givenchy's 4-in-1 mascara. You'll look amazing when finally trying an infamous Cronut-- we said we were going to be fearless right? Those endless lines for the coveted pastry don't scare us!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) -- Take a trip down memory lane, and pay your doll days tribute with Moschino's cropped sweater inspired by Mattel®'s iconic Barbie™ and a shade of Barbie Fantasy Pink lipstick. For even more of a childhood #TBT, nothing screams 'childhood' more than an ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles.
Leo (July 23 to August 22) -- Leos, this month create a balance in your life between your different personalities. Show off your tough side with a leather moto jacket while balancing your feminine side with a spritz or two of Chloe's Rose Perfume. Who says you can't have it all?
Virgo (August 23 to September 22) -- Stay under the radar this month with a fabulous pair of sunnies. Go big and mysterious with a pair from the The Row or be classic (yet trendy!) with a mirrored pair from Ray-Ban. But first, don't forget to curl those beautiful lashes of yours with a new and velvety Eyelash Curler. Feeling hungry? Treat yourself to a Kookie from Momofuku Milk Bar if you're in New York City or have them delivered straight to your door for a sugar fix.
