Your challenge this month, air signs, is to not completely live in your head. For some, there was a recent emotional upset that is consuming your thoughts. For others, perhaps old wounds have reopened. This is causing you to replay scenarios in your head repeatedly. You can “should’ve, could’ve, would’ve” all you want, but you can’t change what’s been done. You have plenty to be grateful for but cannot fully appreciate things because you’re hyper-focused on what’s been lost. Take time to examine what harm you are holding onto and reflect how that hurt and pain is stalling your progress. You cannot keep using your grief as an excuse not to move forward. How would life look different if you accepted the situation for what is and chose to focus on the things that are bringing you joy?

October is all about accountability. The thing with being accountable, though, is that most of us tend to do so through nasty self-talk and bullying. Work on extending yourself grace and compassion for your actions’ not-so-great consequences. Did you make a decision out of boredom or impulse? Join the club, it happens to the best of us. Are your feelings valid? Sure, but there’s a lesson in here somewhere about intentionality. It’s time to stop chasing thrills and find better ways to entertain yourself.

A fruitful opportunity may soon present itself if it hasn’t already. It has the possibility to not only positively impact your finances, but to open doors to bigger ventures down the line. However, you’re at an impasse — standing at a fork in the road, unsure which direction to choose. Trust that you have all the information you need and that you’re capable of making the right choice. You can ask for all the feedback you want, but ultimately it’s your life and the final choice is in your hands. Remember that indecision is a decision; you want to make one before the Universe makes it for you. Once you move past fear, prosperity and stability are waiting for you on the other side.

Western culture places a heavy emphasis on planning ahead. How old were you the first time you heard someone mention a five-year or 10-year plan? Practicality and stability tend to be particularly important for earth signs. Some of you love creating five-year plans to achieve the rush you get when you meet that goal. Goal chasing is a wonderful attribute to have, but don’t forget to live in the present moment. Instead of working on a 10-year plan, scale back and think about the next six months. Don’t get ahead of yourself. Planning too far ahead may trigger anxiety and have you overlook resources that are readily at your disposal.
