ARIES October 2019 Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)
This month sees the Sun, Mars and Venus all opposite your Sun sign. That can mean you feel distracted and unsettled. Mars’s influence makes you agitated and Venus causes you to chase after pleasure. As Aries likes to be active and motivated, I would recommend you slow down and review your intentions. The month could be full of activities that lack focus and therefore are not fulfilling or satisfying.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month slow down and review your motives. Contemplate on meaningful actions and practice mindfulness when distraction arises.
TAURUS October Horoscope 2019 (April 20 May 20)
This month has a high level of intelligence and energy. Jupiter and Mercury will be running in opposition to your Sun sign. You may have some wonderful ideas and be enthusiastic to share them. Be careful of gossiping, one of the ten non-virtues of speech. The only reason you would do that is because you are too excited to share information.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month your mind is excited with possibilities. It is a good month to meditate on Bodhicitta, the ultimate altruistic attitude. Your intellectual enthusiasm will stimulate growth of your love and compassion.
GEMINI October 2019 Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)
This month life is fairly comfortable. The Sun, Mars and Venus are all trine (harmoniously aspected) to your Sun sign. Therefore do activities that you enjoy and know the stars are on your side. It is similar to having good friends that support what you do.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month go with the flow of virtue and create lots of positive karma. While the weather is sunny make hay, when the circumstances are good, make good karma.
CANCER October Horoscope 2019 (June 21 – July 22)
This month there is a distraction from the Sun, Mars and Venus moving at 90 degree aspect to your Sun sign. This means there are things that distract you. Be mindful of agitating feelings and you will avoid acting out your frustrations. Virtuous mindfulness stops even bad astrological aspects. Be confident in your own clarity and positive feelings.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month be reflective and patient. Patience is a wonderful virtue. It comes from understanding that aggression is not the best way to resolve issues. Compassion is a far better way to deal with all situations. It helps both you and others.
LEO October 2019 Horoscope (July 23 – August 22)
This month you are becoming more and more contemplative. Saturn runs in opposition to Neptune. Saturn is a great planet for meditators, it has a natural quality of contemplativeness, so those that meditate improve Saturn’s positive influence. The opposition helps you think about spiritual issues. Be careful of being fussy about activities you are engaged in as you are prone to be judgmental during this time if you become negative about something or someone.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month motivate yourself to meditate more than you normally do. There are times for change and there are times for contemplation. This is the time for contemplation.
VIRGO October Horoscope 2019 (August 23 – September 22)
This month things are quiet compared to last month and your birthday. So you are a year older. What did you do last year that you are proud of in a positive manner? Think about last year and use that to motivate yourself for this year. Each birthday we have an opportunity to review our life. Years flow by quickly and it is important to accomplish activities we identify with positively. Pride in this case means positive identification with a good feeling. Not the competitive pride of delusion.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month meditate and then meditate some more.
LIBRA October 2019 Horoscope (September 23 – October 22)

So start planning to do some good things and by the end of the month you will be fully busy with those positive projects.
