Prepare for an important month where you are assessing your innermost wants and needs, Aries. While this month will have a much slower speed with Mars and Mercury fast asleep, you can use this energy to review how far you have come in 2020 and what you wish 2021 to embody. October sparkles with opportunities for you to indulge in self-care and self-love, so consider ways to create a better and healthier beauty routine.
Your Talisman: Our Gravitation Earrings will keep you grounded and the cabochon opals will remind you of sparkling things to come this month. Available in recycled sterling silver and 10k yellow gold.
You have been especially tired in recent months and begging the Universe for a vacation, Taurus. However, your hard work ethic has been pushing you still—and October may be the month where you finally get a handle on a better work-life balance. Arrows of love will also rain down upon you most of this month, so find ways to grow close with your significant other or light the spark of passion for someone new.
Your Talisman: These Five Spike Earrings are a subtle reminder of the arrows of love headed your way this month.
Passion is on your mind in October, Gemini. With the Sun lighting up your sector of love and creativity, you will feel like your heart has caught on fire! This is a gorgeous month for you to bring the spice back into an existing relationship—or go after someone new. With two powerful planets retrograde at this time, don’t be shocked if you hear from old friends—or even old lovers—now. No matter how you choose to move forward: be slow and don’t make any final decisions until later in the year.
Your Talisman: The Hilma Earrings feature a vibrant abalone inlay with beautiful baroque pearls remind you of all the love and excitement coming your way.
The planets are encouraging you to be cozy and domestic, Cancer—which you will snuggle right into like your favorite warm sweater! Fix up your living space to feel like a sanctuary, and with the holidays just around the corner, you could even begin planning some special events to look toward. While your career has also been on your mind for months and you could see some progress now, take a moment to unplug and be grateful for the life you have built.
Your Talisman: This Dome Ring is the perfect piece to remind you to relax and go with the flow with its smooth surface and domed design.
Your curiosity about the world is growing, Leo, and you want to learn more. This is, of course, tied to your desire to express yourself ever more clearly. This month will help you to find the right kinds of books, videos, and guidance that you seek as long as you are looking. With Mercury and Mars fast asleep, though, this could even call you to return to interests and philosophies you explored long ago.
Your Talisman: The Serpent Clicker

The cosmos above are telling you to surrender control at this time, Scorpio—something that is a bit challenging for you to do. However, as the Universe has so much love for you, know that you are actually being redirected to better seas. With Mercury Retrograde taking place within your zodiac sign for most of the month, you may feel a bit confused about what you think and feel. Focus on trusting your intuition.

No longer should you stay in your comfort zone, Aquarius. It is time to set sail into new horizons and explore more of what makes you beautiful and unique.
