Happy October! As always, this monthly horoscope post starts with the obligatory caveat that it is truly so hard to believe that it is actually October, practically. It feels like New Year’s was a month ago, summer was last week, and Labor Day was, like, last night, right?
But October it is and, if you ask us, this is a good thing, since October is one of our favorite months here at Gurl. It’s when the weather really starts to cool down and actually feel like fall, which, in turn, actually validates your pumpkin spice obsession. It also kicks off your month-long Halloween celebration (which you MAYBE have been celebrating since, uh, August? It’s fine), which also kicks off the best time of the year–it’s Halloween, then it’s Thanksgiving, then it’s Christmas (and Hanukkah!), then it’s New Year’s. And then it’s 2017! Wild.
Anyway, no matter what excites you the most about October, it’s important that you know what the ~stars~ have in store for you. So, check out your October 2016 horoscope right here:
