Star signs and cannabis strains: October 2023 horoscopes



Welcome to Libra season, Stargazers! This month poises us to make time for seeking balance in our relationships and personal endeavors, reflecting the equilibrium that Libra symbolizes. Whether it’s finding the middle ground in disagreements or balancing work and leisure, the scales of Libra encourage us to find harmony in all aspects of our lives.

Pluto, the planet of transformation, goes direct mid-month. This significant cosmic shift nudges us to confront and release deep-seated fears and patterns that no longer serve our growth. This may sound intense, but remember that Pluto’s energy is all about rebirth and renewal. Embracing this change can lead to profound personal evolution.

October also graces us with two powerful eclipses: one solar eclipse and one lunar eclipse. Eclipses can bring about sudden insights and abrupt shifts in perspective. The solar eclipse may illuminate new paths and opportunities, while the lunar eclipse might reveal hidden emotions or truths. While every sign will feel the impacts of these eclipses differently, all should endeavor to  stay grounded and open to the lessons they bring. Trust that the universe is guiding you towards your highest good.
