on


Hello Stargazers! Happy Holidays and festive greetings. December is a happy time of year for many, but if the holidays aren’t your bag, do not stress. Whether you’re flying solo this holiday season or gathering with those you love, remember that this is a crucial month to take care of your health and well-being—as much as it is humanly possible to do! 

As for the stars, December is shaping up to be a warm (metaphorically speaking) and generous month. Mercury saunters into Capricorn on December 6, followed closely by a full moon in Gemini on December 7. Jupiter pays a visit to Aries on December 20, and of course, we celebrate the shortest day of the year on December 21—Winter Solstice!

Meditate on what will make this month most peaceful and satisfying for your soul. Can you expand your circle to include someone who will be alone this season? Will being with family fill your cup, or would you be happier spending it with friends? You do you, celestial rockstar. The rest will fall into place.

Happy Solstice, and congrats on making it to the end of 2022, Sag! On December 3, Neptune returns to direct motion in sweet, soft Pisces. Just remember not to get tripped up by others’ expectations of you. Do your best—it’s all you can do!

A full moon in Gemini on December 7 will drudge up some complicated feelings for someone you’ve been talking to. Listen to your gut. Maybe this individual shouldn’t have a place in your inner circle in 2023. 

Your ruler, Jupiter, enters fierce Aries on December 20. Make space for a version of you that doesn’t people-please anyone. The Winter Solstice is on December 21, and there is a new moon in Capricorn on December 23. You’ll probably get this advice a lot at the end of the year, but…journal, journal, journal.

Truly, you have learned so much and come so far. Give yourself the gift of self-reflection. It will set you on the right path for 2023. 

December strain: Whether you celebrate the holiday or not, Christmas Lights can get you in a festive mood. This hybrid strain leans more calming than energizing. Users report this strain offers strong body buzzes. Melt into your couch with a favorite flick and enjoy some downtime this month.

Happy Solstice and happy birthdays, Caps! You made it to a Capricorn’s favorite time of year. Things kick off for your birthday month with Neptune leaving behind its retrograde in Pisces. Your thoughts might be more scattered the first week of the month, but things will sort themselves out. On December 9, Venus enters Capricorn for a hefty, if not boring, dose of realism. Just try not to get too bogged down in petty details. 

Saturn (your ruler) is in direct motion this month, meaning your decision-making skills will be at their best for the rest of the year. The Solstice and Capricorn season begin on December 21.

Make use of all this refreshing energy by spoiling yourself in whatever way feels best. Finally, the new moon in Capricorn on December 23 offers the perfect opportunity to reflect and recharge before 2023 comes roaring in. 

December strain: You don’t have to be a fan of the jolly man in the red suit to appreciate some Christmas Tree. This hybrid strain has calming effects, and users report the buzz is nice and middle-of-the-road, so you can still get all of your online holiday shopping done after hitting a bong.

Aquarius

It’s official—2022 is coming to an end, Aquarius. You’ve done a lot of growing this year, and it’s time to reflect on all of that. December 7 features a full moon in gregarious Gemini. This is something of a mixed-bag moon. On the one hand, you may be thinking of fun events that kept you refueled this year, and on the other, it might bring up some less-than-savory memories for you to chew on.

Whatever direction the wind blows, you can lean into it through meditative practice, journaling, taking a stroll, or whatever else feels gentle and right in the moment. 

Uranus (your ruler) is in retrograde this month, meaning emotions might be a little all over the place. Put that phone on silent, you beautiful stargazer. Don’t let the world get you too far down.

The shortest day of the year and the beginning of Capricorn season both start on December 21. On December 29, things round out for 2022 with Mercury returning to Capricorn in Retrograde for a second time this year. A fitting end to a challenging year. 2023 is already looking bright. 

December strain: Let’s face it, the best part of any holiday is the dessert potential. Have your pie and smoke it too with some Apple Pie. This hybrid strain boasts an impressive 24% THC—meaning you don’t want to make any huge plans after packing a bowl of this stuff. Users report this strain is a go-to if they have trouble sleeping. Medical patients also love it for its anxiety-busting effects.

Happy January and welcome to the New Year, Sagittarius! On January 4, Venus in Aquarius sextile Jupiter (your ruler) in Aries will bring positivity, charm, and a little luck your way.

On January 6, the first full moon of the year starts in Cancer. Don’t waste your time or energy on communicating with people who don’t do the bare minimum to connect with you. 

On January 22, Uranus goes direct in determined Taurus. Make use of this strong pairing by honoring your moral compass—if it feels wrong, don’t do it. On January 24, Sun in Aquarius sextile Jupiter in Aries is a feisty aspect.

Leverage your charm to make new friends and establish deeper connections with powerful people in your professional sphere. 

January strain: No one really wants to take a 9 lb hammer to the head, but you can simulate the effects by smoking a bowl of 9 Lb Hammer. Listen, sometimes you just need to be knocked out for a bit, and in the depths of winter, that’s a compelling proposition. This indica strain offers up 20% THC and dense buds that taste fruity and sour. Users report the melting effects last a while, so don’t make big plans after smoking this strain.

Star signs and cannabis strains: November 2022 horoscopes

Published

Well, hello there, all of you beautiful, caring Zodiac babes! Welcome to November, and step right up! We have full moon lunar eclipses, lots of rulers in retrograde, and we’ve got all the planets flocking to bold and risk-taking Sagittarius. That’s right, this is the month to celebrate adventure with your favorite Archer.

Take aim at something that scares you this November. You are stronger than you think and tougher than you know. Let’s get into it!


Your November horoscope


Scorpio

Happy Birthday, Scorp! The late Scorpio season babies will especially appreciate this month. It’s full of adventure and the opportunity to become someone entirely new. On November 8, there is a full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus. It presents a chance to embrace any tremors that hit your social/personal sphere. Sure, things might get dicey, but by embracing the ride you are learning to prioritize yourself.

Also on November 8,  Sun in Scorpio conjunct with Mercury in Scorpio offers an interesting and compelling chance to align your values and your words. Intentions matter early in the month. Don’t miss the opportunity to tell those who are important to you what you need.

As far as ruling planets go, this month is a bit of a mixed bag. Mars is in retrograde, but Pluto is in direct motion. If you feel a little bit torn between two opportunities (romantic, financial, career, or otherwise), meditating on it will be your secret weapon this month. The right answer will come to you with just a little bit of time spent in mindful communication with the present moment.  

November strain: Whether you’re turning 30 or 60, you’ve got a good month to look forward to, Scorpio. After all, some of it is still your season. Dirty Thirty is a relatively new strain in our library, but that doesn’t stop users from loving its oaky scent and mellow buzz. Give yourself the gift of a relaxing day spent on the couch or in your favorite movie theater seat. You are worthy.

Sagittarius

(Savina Monet)

Happiest of Birthdays, Sag! This is your month to show all the Zodiac babes that adventure doesn’t have to be scary. Things start with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. Don’t be scared off just yet! Sure, some consider this a negative lunation, but it’s also an opportunity to let the unknown guide you to better decisions and relationships.

Your ruler (Jupiter) is in retrograde for the first three weeks of the month, returning to direct motion in sensitive Pisces. Be gentle with your heart, and don’t be so hard on yourself about any mistakes you make this month. Part of trusting the journey is screwing up once in a while.

On November 17, Mercury enters your sign, and clear communication will absolutely bloom between you, your partner, and your friends. This is a great time to make long-term travel plans, or put together the birthday party you’ve always dreamed of having. The sky is the limit this month.

November strain: Okay, reserve judgment, the name is a little intimidating, but that’s just because this bud means business. Hitman OG Kush is an 18 percent-THC hybrid with earthy scents and more sativa-like effects. Ironically, a lot of users report this gives them childhood giggles and good vibes. Hey, sometimes the best things in life are a paradox, right?


Capricorn

You feel those leaves crunching under your feet, Capricorn? Winter is right around the corner—a time when people start to ball up into themselves and hunker down. Because you like to run in a smaller, more connected circle, this lack of socialization can be … a bummer. Utilize the warmth left in this month to connect with your friends and make plans so that no one becomes a honey badger and abandons the group when it gets icy outside.

On November 8, there is a full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus, presenting lots of opportunity to embrace the tremors life will continue to throw at us. Shake off any entanglements that have become problematic or harmful to you.

Your ruler (Saturn) is in direct motion this month, praise be. On November 23, there is a new moon in Sagittarius. This is a great time to share your intuitions and big goals with your closest, most trusted confidants. Get their input and advice, which will be hitting all the right notes.

The month ends with Venus in Sagittarius opposite Mars in Gemini on November 30, which means that passion and war will be butting heads. You’ve been working hard to avoid the drama this month and soak up the remaining daylight. Keep your head fixed straight, and you’ll be just fine.

November strain: Listen, sometimes you just need a little push to leave your social comfort zone. Palpatine has 26 percent THC and, as a hybrid strain, the effects are a good cross between cerebral and physical. Users report this one sneaks up on you though, so don’t overcommit before a work dinner at the boss’ house or anything.

Aquarius

Happy November, Aquarius! You’ve made it to the final Speed laps of 2022. In fact, this month is a great month to embrace what is new and unknown. Leverage your creativity to help you see the bigger picture and light your own path into 2023. On November 8, there is a full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus. Don’t be intimidated by this lunation! It’s here to teach us that solid ground is an illusion, which, if you think about it … is a pretty freeing concept.

Your ruler, Uranus, is in retrograde this month, which could leave you feeling a little off-kilter. If you find your words aren’t aligning with your intentions, start journaling before any big conversation you have to have. Take notes and be prepared, so your own mouth doesn’t catch you off guard.

November 23 sees a new moon in Sagittarius and Jupiter going direct in sweet Pisces. Lots of big emotions all at once. Channel those into your art. Make feelings into something tangible, and don’t be afraid to use a new medium.

On November 28, Mars in Gemini trine Saturn in your sign will encourage you to make long-term commitments that are likely to benefit you financially. This is an exciting month to embrace adventure and just a smidge of organized chaos.

November strain: Madonna once famously said, “Life is a mystery,” and she was not wrong. Mystery Machine gives you the best of both worlds with a mild 15 percent THC and a hybrid effects profile that ranges from cerebral to muscle-melting. Embrace the wonder this month, Aquarius.


Pisces

(Savina Monet)

Pisces, you are the last sign in the zodiac, but not in our hearts. If anyone knows how to round out a tough year, it’s you. This November will see you shine as a beacon of spirituality and growth. Embrace the love and admiration people want to bestow on you. You’ve earned it! On November 8, there is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. You can see this as a negative lunation, but the truth is it’s just here to teach us to let go of that which does not serve us. Embrace the chaos of this truth: we are all just winging it.

Neptune (your ruler) is in retrograde this month, but that’s okay. Things are already getting shaken up. If you learn how to better balance your commitments to others and your own needs this month, everything is a win. On November 12, Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is a fun little mashup that will leave you feeling a deeper spiritual harmony and alignment with your intentions and your words.

On November 23, Jupiter goes direct into your sign, and everyone will be speaking your language of growth and prosperity. It’s a great way to end one of the last months of 2022—with everyone tapping into their higher selves thanks, in no small part, to your energy.

November strain: Ocean Beach is known for its intense winter swells. You might have a few of those headed your way this month, too. Ocean Beach is a 25 percent THC hybrid strain that users love to smoke before a kickback with their buddies or before watching a funny flick. The effects are strong and quick—definitely a favorite among heavy smokers.

Aries

(Savina Monet)

Hey Aries, don’t forget to look up at the night sky on November 8. There will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. Some might tell you this is a pretty ominous lunation, but you aren’t scared of a challenge this month. Chalk it up to all of that Sag energy.

One thing you will want to look out for is your ruler, Mars, being in retrograde this month. Keep your finances tight, and your reliable friends close. On November 15, the planet of love (Venus) enters Sagittarius. If the third week of the month has you feeling like you dove into your stash of good kush, it might not be the pot (okay, a little bit of it is probably the pot). Love is an unlimited resource just waiting to be tapped into, which is what this celestial pairing does for us.

On November 17, Mercury also enters the Archer’s domain. People at work might finally be direct with you—something you might have been missing the last few months. As the last leaves of 2022 crunch under your feet, keep your path forward. You have big things ahead.

November strain: This month is pretty low stakes for you, so take it mellow with a bit of Citradelic Sunset. This is a hybrid strain with 18 percent THC. Users report this is strain isn’t too jarring, but isn’t a featherweight, either. Many say this is their go-to daytime strain.

Taurus

(Savina Monet)

Gorgeous, vibrant Bulls! This month starts out strong for you with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign. That’s right, this is a chance to let go and let Gaga … or however that saying goes. You are the captain of your own fate. Do not get too attached to anything in this season of life. Your wings are just starting to spread.

Your ruler Venus pays a visit to Sagittarius on November 15. Adoration, charm, wit … this is truly your moment to shine. Don’t waste your time on anyone who makes you beg for their attention. You’re too majestic for that. Bow down to no Tinder ghost.

The month wraps up well with a new moon in Sagittarius as well on November 23. Embrace the dark and weave yourself into it like a comfortable cable-knit sweater. Don’t get attached to anything, but especially the belief that you cannot grow in the dark.

November strain: Things are getting a little steamy for you this month. Embrace the gorgeous, tropical notes of November with Hawaiian. This is a doozy of a strain, so maybe don’t operate a phone, and certainly not heavy machinery. Users say this sativa hits hard and fast between the eyes. Don’t be caught off guard—take your first hit from the safety and comfort of your couch.

7 cannabis strains that pair perfectly with your fall festivities

Gemini

Twins, you’ve got a pretty solid month ahead. Mercury (your ruler) is in direct motion this November. On November 17, it enters Sagittarius. This will add a truly delightful bit of chaos into the mix. If your social circle has gotten stale, just wait. Things are bound to get a refresh.

We officially begin Sagittarius season on November 22. The transition between Scorpio and Sagittarius season can feel a tiny bit jarring to some, but Geminis are especially good at embracing adventure and the unknown. Be your true, passionate self this month, and you will attract all the right people.

November strain: Find the shoe that fits this month with a little help from Cinderella 99. This is a classic hybrid strain with 18 percent THC and an enticing grapefruit taste. User reviews state that this old-school strain kicks off fast and hard, even for long-time users.


Cancer

(Savina Monet)

November is here Crabs, and so is a bit of a refresh for you in virtually every aspect of life. Feeling the power to clean? To give up old habits? Cancers love routine, so you should embrace this out-of-character desire to shake things up. It’s leading you to good places (especially in work and romance). Your ruler, the Moon, has a lunar eclipse in Taurus on November 8. Some consider this lunation to be a bad omen, but it can also signal a big shift in some deeply held beliefs.

What’s not serving you anymore, Cancer? Is it time for a new job? A better partnership? More thoughtful friendships? It’s okay to ask the big questions this month, especially when we begin Sagittarius season on November 22. All of that Archer energy starts to peak around the new moon in Sag on November 23.

Let the good vibes wash over you. Accept that, yes, you are worth other people’s time and energy. Be brave enough to believe you are worthy simply because you are here on this spinning wet rock that’s darting through space. What an adventure.

November strain: Cancers are creatures of habit, so if anyone can appreciate the staying power of an old-school strain, it’s a Crab. Check out an OG strain like J1 (aka Jack One). This beautiful strain is top-of-the-line and offers a generous, uplifting, and cerebral buzz. Users especially like the sticky buds and delicious taste profile.

Leo

November is here, Leo. If you celebrate the best elements of Thanksgiving, your heart will be open to giving and receiving generosity and kindness like never before. Things kick off on November 8 with a full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus. This combination of an eclipse, a full moon, and all of that Bull energy presents the opportunity to examine how strongly we have held on to beliefs that no longer serve us.

On November 15, the planet of love (Venus) enters Sagittarius. This is a great time to surprise your boo with a date that you wouldn’t traditionally plan. Maybe it’s rock climbing, or maybe it’s a paint night. Whatever you choose, consider what your partner might need most this month but isn’t expressing. Doing this will re-energize your connection and bring you closer.

On November 22, your ruler (the sun) enters Sagittarius as well. The Archer will help direct your spirit to bigger, bolder, and even kinder ideas. Embrace what this month offers, and you’ll have a renewed spark in those Lion eyes.

November strain: While the name is curious, rest assured that White Dawg Fire only brings positivity with its fire. This hybrid strain has soothing tea flavors, and users love it for its deeply calming effects and its balance, which maintains mental sharpness. Don’t shy away from the heat—you were born to dance in the sun, baby!


Virgo

Happy November, Virgo babes. Things start off with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8. Some people consider this to be a shaky lunation, but for you, it might be the chance to shake off some beliefs or habits that are no longer serving you well. In other good news, Mercury (your ruler) is in direct motion this month.

Speaking of Mercury, it enters Sagittarius on November 17. You might notice you’re coming up with some wild ideas around the third week of the month. Don’t discount them as useless. There might be a gem in there that can advance your career or your passion project in new and exciting ways.

On November 23, Jupiter returns to direct motion in thoughtful Pisces. Once again, you’ll have the opportunity this month to reflect on things that have been weighing you down. Shake off any rusty ideas, relationships, or career aspirations. You deserve to feel renewed this month, Virgo.  

November strain: The season of tropical fruits has come to a close for many in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on all the fun. Orange Pineapple is a delicious hybrid that scores high ratings across the board, and users report it’s the kind of giggly buzz that will have you laughing at absolutely nothing and everything. Sounds like a great time.


Libra

Sweet, warm Libra. This will be a month that aligns your values with your intentions. Things start with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8. Some people think this is a negative lunation. Maybe that’s true, but for you, it’s a chance to embrace the unknown a little. Shake off old, crusty relationships and negative alliances — they aren’t serving you anymore.

On November 15, your ruler (Venus) enters Sagittarius. Your romantic intentions will be compelling a clear. This is a time to follow your intuition and trust it. If it’s telling you that you are pursuing someone that cannot reciprocate love in the way that you need, it’s time to consider other options. But if you feel like the romantic relationship(s) you are pursuing are meshing well with your intentions, go for it, babes. Above all, you deserve happiness.

On November 22, we enter Sagittarius season. Let all of that Archer energy round out your month with a spirit for adventure and excitement. You’ve got this.

November strain: This month probably won’t have much lounge time, so you’d do best to find a strain like Khola that lets you stay on your feet and get things done. This is a hybrid strain with spicy, earthy scents and more cerebral effects than physical ones. Still, users love it for watching old, favorite comedies. Get to laughing, it’s good medicine.

Star signs and cannabis strains: October 2022 horoscopes

Published

If you’re reading this, you managed to make it through six planets in retrograde last month, Stargazers. You are probably busy licking your wounds and asking yourself, “Do I even want to look up at that devilish night sky this month?”

Well, there is good news, and … there is less good news. Let’s start with the positives! Major players Mercury and Venus are almost back on direct course. Mercury will remain in its slowed dance for a couple of days at the start of the month, and then it will return to direct motion.

The bad news is that Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all in retrograde at some point during the month (or all of it). So drink some Gatorade, block your ex’s socials, and don’t send your boss that passive-aggressive email when they tell you they didn’t get the report you sent four times.

Apart from the retrograde superstorm, on October 9, there will be a full moon in Aries. Mercury enters Libra on October 10, and there is a new moon in Scorpio on October 25. The month will be full of unpredictable ups and downs, but that’s what the spookiest month of the year is for, right?


Your October horoscope


Libra

(Savina Monet for Leafly)

Hello and Happy Birthday to you Libra babies! This month is jam-packed with planetary motion, so be prepared to become everyone’s favorite sounding board. On October 2, Mercury returns to direct motion in Virgo. Lower your shoulders and do a few gentle stretches to clear that tension your body has been holding the past few weeks. In other good news, your ruler—Venus—is in direct motion this entire month meaning that the love department is looking solid this October.

That said, Venus does enter Scorpio on October 23 (which is also when we start Scorpio season), so if you aren’t a fan of getting real deep real fast … maybe hold off on any new romantic entanglements for a few weeks. On October 25, there is a new moon solar eclipse in Scorpio. This is a fantastic lunation that will offer you the opportunity to welcome the fall season with open arms (if you haven’t already). Sure, this might be the spookiest month of the year, but with your warm and inviting spirit, the ghouls and goblins are bound to love you.

October strain: Remember your favorite costume as a kid? Get nostalgic for those simpler times with some Fall ‘97. This hybrid comes from crossing Purple Uriel and OG Kush. This is royal lineage, and you can tell with the gorgeous buds it produces and the thick, fruity flavor. Users love this strain for its arousing effects.

What’s the difference between sweet and fruity cannabis strains?

Scorpio

Scorpion on blue tie dye background with word
(Scorpio by Savina Monet for Leafly)

Happy Birthday, Scorpios! This is truly your season. We’re sharing our intimate feelings! Going boldly where no one has gone before! Being ride or die for our true friends! On October 2, Mercury returns to direct motion in dependable Virgo. You can come out of hiding now. Don’t waste your celebratory month hiding in the shadow of (checks notes) SIX retrogrades.

On October 8, one of your rulers (Pluto) goes direct in Capricorn. This is a little bit of an unpredictable combo, so don’t be afraid to lean into some strange and exciting new opportunities. On October 9, there is a full moon in Aries. Make room for passion because there will be a lot of it (especially where friends are concerned).

We officially enter Scorpio season on October 23, and the month wraps up with Mars (your other ruler) going retrograde in Gemini. Woof! Okay, so there might be a few bumps in the road towards the end of October. Don’t let that slow you down. Invest in the friends that invest in you, let people spoil you, and above all … get a little weird this month. It’s your time to shine.

October strain: Spread your wings, Scorpio, even if you have to do it in the dark. Gain some insights into yourself with a little help from Batgirl. This hybrid has a respectable 19% THC and a sweet, fruity scent profile. Users often find this strain to be both euphoric and relaxing. The effects are cerebral at first and then add weight to the eyelids.


Sagittarius

Happy October, Sagittariuses! Eesh, how about those retrogrades, hu? Are you still holding tension in your neck and shoulders? Do your best to rest set body and soul at the beginning of the month with Mercury’s return to forward motion in Virgo on October 2. Take this much-needed break to assess the damage and come up with a plan of action to get you back on the right track.

Unfortunately your ruler Jupiter is in retrograde this entire month. Be wary of trusting every gut instinct you have while dear Jupiter slows its wheels. Be cautious with your investments and who you spend the most time with. On October 8, Pluto goes direct in Capricorn. Finally, old heartaches start to fade into the background. There is a full moon in Aries on Oct 9—a good time for taking risks in your art and creative endeavors.

On October 27, Jupiter returns to Pisces. Be ready to defend yourself against baseless character attacks. Don’t worry— it’s them, not you. Spend the rest of the month balancing alone time with the need for social interaction. Carve out at least one day a week for a digital detox. You’ll be thankful for the space to think.

October strain: Halloween candy for adults? Sounds like an October win. Pack a bowl of Pink Candy Kush for a delightfully smooth, yet powerful buzz. This strain packs some heat with 22% THC. Don’t sign up to run any marathons after you’ve had a bowl of this stuff. Users report this strain tastes a little like lemonade and settles nicely between the eyes.


Capricorn

(Savina Monet for Leafly)

Boo, Capricorns! Are you ready for some astrology that goes bump in the night? Don’t be too scared, after all, you lived through last month (hopefully relatively unscathed). On October 2, Mercury kisses its retrograde goodbye in Virgo. At last, stability is yours for the taking. Friends will be more predictable, and work will feel less tumultuous. Unfortunately, Saturn (your ruler) continues its retrograde for much of the month, only returning to direct motion in Aquarius on Oct 22. Don’t sleep on this opportunity to share your hard-earned wisdom with someone who needs it.

On October 23, we start Scorpio season. Mystery! Intrigue! It’s all there for you to put a positive (or negative) spin on it. Scorpios are wonderfully deep people, so consider taking a page from their book and letting your guard down with someone you trust. Venus also enters Scorpio on October 23. Lovers and romantic interests will be a little more mercurial than usual, but you should come out the other side with a better understanding of one another.

Lastly, Mars goes retrograde in Gemini on October 30. Buckle up because this duo can leave you feeling socially drained.

October strain: Goblins and ghouls, oh my! Fortunately for you, this month you can make acquaintances with a friendly Green Goblin. This sativa has a mild 14% THC, but don’t let that fool you—it’s a hard-hitting strain. Users love it for its dreamy effects that pair well with an afternoon spent doing your favorite cerebral activity.

Aquarius

(Savina Monet for Leafly)

Happy Spooky Season, Aquariuses! You made it through a tornado of September retrogrades, and unfortunately, the fun continues in that department this month.

Mercury returns to direct motion in Virgo on Oct 2. So, things start off on a smoother surface. Pluto also goes direct in Capricorn on October 8. Use the lessons you learned last month to sketch out your goals for the rest of the year (or revisit any previous goals you made). On October 9, there is a full moon in Aries. Confidence abounds, but be cautious not to come off as cocky.

Unfortunately, Uranus (your ruler) continues its backward dance this month. Expect things to remain relatively stagnate this month in virtually every part of your life. It’s a good time to invest in comfort and security. Do what you can to make your living space more calming.

Finally, look out because, on October 30, Mars goes retrograde in Gemini. Don’t expect to get much done at the end of the month. People will be more interested in bending your ear than making meaningful plans. Carve out space for yourself, and you will more than survive the month.

October strain: What’s autumn without a little Frankenstein? This is an indica strain that packs a moderate 17% THC and 1% CBG. It’s a delightful little indica that has a mysterious lineage, and users report that, despite the moderate THC level this is a powerful strain that shouldn’t be underestimated.


Pisces

(Savina Monet for Leafly)

It’s the spookiest month of the year, Pisces. The bad news is that part of that spook factor might be due to the continuation of all these retrogrades. Fortunately, we get a break early on when Mercury returns to direct motion in reliable Virgo on October 2. You can resume making plans and taking risks; just know there are still quite a few planets that have slowed their spin this month.

For instance, Neptune (your ruler) is in retrograde this whole month. Things might feel slightly off-center. Maybe you’re misplacing things more often or forgetting appointments. Be sure to leave yourself notes and reminders to help you get through the month.

On October 22, Saturn returns to direct motion in sensitive Aquarius. Hopefully, any hurt feelings you’ve acquired will start to subside around this time. We begin Scorpio season on Oct 23. Things will probably get deep with the people you love—don’t worry, that can be a good thing! There is a new moon solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25. This is a stellar lunation that allows us to consider our closest alliances and how they influence our goals and dreams. Be the friend you needed in your worst hour, and you’ll be grateful for the investment of your time and energy.

October strain: Embrace your spooky spirit this month, Pisces. It might help to pack a bowl of Monster OG to get into the mood. This hybrid can clock in at 26% THC, so users beware that this is indeed a monster strain. Users love his strain as a little bedtime treat.

Aries

(Savina Monet for Leafly)

Boo, Aries! Yeah, this month is full of frights—some of them celestial—but you’re tough, and you can handle it. Mercury gives us tender mercy by going direct in Virgo on October 2. Deep breaths in and out as you recalibrate those expectations and goals that were thrown for a loop last month.

On October 9, there is a full moon in your sign. Your leadership capabilities will become lucrative around this time. Don’t shy away from what you’re good at.

On October 25, there is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in cunning Scorpio. Don’t turn your back on anyone that has been treating you as less than this month. What’s the expression? Do no harm, but take no shit. Finally, your ruler Mars wraps up the month with a bang by going retrograde on October 30. Spend wisely. Heck, freeze that credit card in a ziplock bag and chuck it in the back of the freezer if you need to.

October strain: Start spooking up your month with a little Ghost OG. This is a hybrid strain with a respectable 19% THC makeup. Users report this strain is great for getting cerebral/firing up the creative part of the brain. It’s got a gorgeous citrus scent profile, and it is also great for knocking out those daily aches and pains that creep up around the joints.

Happy October, you spooktacular Bulls! There is a lot going on this month, so you will want to tap into your Taurean self-care powers as soon as the clock strikes midnight on October 1. Things start with Mercury returning to direct motion on October 2. Even better, your ruler Venus is in direct motion this month as well. Okay, okay, okay maybe you’ll be able to breathe a little after all!

On October 9, there is a full moon in Aries. Prepare to experience a spiritual growth spurt of sorts. Do some journaling, meditation, or breath work. Whatever feels right to you. On October 23, Venus enters Scorpio. Romance will become unpredictable and jarring. Ignore any Tinder messages that don’t meet your rigorous standards.

On October 30, Mars begins its long retrograde in Gemini. Don’t expect anyone in your personal circle or at work to feel particularly inspired to action. Make the best of the situation by recovering from all of this star action. Take care of yourself and eat some candy.

October strain: Hopefully the scariest part of your month will be your Pumpkin Spice Latte bill. If not, you can count on a little Ghost Train Haze to ease your troubles. This sativa packs a moderate 18% THC and 2% CBG. It’s got citrus notes and boosting effects. Medical users report this strain is great for wiping out pain, depression, and appetite loss. Though, users with anxiety should probably skip this strain.


Gemini

Are you stocking up on party favors this month Gemini? You should. People are going to need your gregarious spirit. On October 2, Mercury (your ruler) returns to direct motion in stable Virgo. Make the most of this tender little mercy by re-establishing your weekly routine. Get back into meal prep if that’s your thing, or meditation if that’s how you like to start your mornings.

Fall is well underway now, Cancer. Last month’s retrograde stew has spilled over this month, but that doesn’t mean you won’t make the most of it. On October 2, Mercury returns to direct motion in sweet, stable Virgo. Make the most of this consolation prize from the universe by returning to center—whatever center looks like to you. And don’t be afraid to invest a little money in self-care this month.

On October 25, there is a new moon solar eclipse in Scorpio. What an exciting time for a sign ruled by the moon. Be ready for it with a burn journal or some other talisman of letting go. You can make it through this month with a little help from the stars, some killer weed, and enough Halloween candy to fill a swimming pool.
