Then the New Moon Oct. 20 throws you back on your friends — ironic. Secrets drift to the surface, especially the fun ones. Mercury and Jupiter open doors. It’s definitely a chance to start over. Consider your Halloween costume; choose your favorite pumpkin patch. Will it be Tokyo Mothers Group or a Haunted Tokyo Tour? Don’t let this invitation to express your alter ego go to waste!

The New Moon Oct. 20 brings a waterfall of ideas. Refreshing! Create a schedule that includes pampering yourself. If you like, please your palate. Enjoy a diet detour at Janice Wong Tokyo to assert your dessert appreciation. Enjoy eating works of art with a cocktail or even a mocktail.

The Full Moon Oct. 6 lights up a relationship. If you’re single, Venus has a few tricks up her sleeve. She’s actually well-connected to the stars as she sparkles up your social scene. Initially it’s with Mars. The yin and yang of the galaxy begin their balancing dance. Then Venus stands up to authority (Saturn), which happens when you believe in yourself. Mars opposes Chiron, triggering a healing crisis. The New Moon Oct. 20 is a blank slate, offering a unique perspective. What was spinning out of control acts in your favor. This translates to trust, possibly hard to come by lately. If you’re in the mood, check out the theme for Roppongi Hills. See if it’s your kind of Halloween parade!

Stressed out over things you can’t control, drum healing your way to a new reality? If you need a place to be yourself, check out Yoyogi Park, where other creative types can be found. The Full Moon Oct. 6 starts with a review of what you like best (or not at all). Then Venus connects with Mars to put a spin on receiving what you know you deserve. Venus says good-bye to the past and bravely faces the future. Saturn ensures that she acknowledge her strengths. Blend your energy with hers to enjoy doing the same. The New Moon Oct. 20 exalts your feminine insights. In the midst of change, you’re blessed with beauty and comfort. Dress for your big reveal at Halloween.

October enhances your sensuous allure. Venus is your ruling planet. If there is one thing you do naturally, it’s create a home that’s plush and comfy. This goes for food and your wardrobe too. Earth sign that you are, you create beauty and stability. The Full Moon Oct. 6 encourages deeply felt insights. Mars and Venus connect right in. Balancing their yin and yang, your power grows. It’s easier to access and act upon. The flip side appears during the New Moon Oct. 20. Changes are within striking distance. What’s your choice? Then Halloween beckons. Ghosts may show up, and they’re friendly. Will you allow yourself an afternoon tea set at the Conrad Tokyo, for starters?

This duo offers insights about a partner or your “single” experiences. The New Moon Oct. 20 wants to bring love your way, especially in a romantic sense. Want to be the beacon in the room? You can, with your quick mind and sparkling expression. If you’re not feeling it, consider exercising your teeth for a bright smile just by eating an apple. An easy solution for Geminis on the go. Being a sociable air sign doesn’t stop there. With two minds about most things, prepare your Halloween costume for more than one party or parade!

The Full Moon Oct. 6 reflects your challenges. Venus connects with Mars to help you see the inside of a situation. If only you didn’t understand so deeply, you could have gotten away. As a water sign who makes decisions based on feelings, one of your top talents is being there for others. Still, Cancer the crab needs to unwind, too! Revive emotional depletion by visiting a cat café for a warm and purr-y moment. If you have the time and finances, take a trip to a rabbit island for a four-footed cuddle. You’ll return restored and refreshed for the New Moon Oct. 20. Then you can dip into your reserves and choose a costume. Will it be a party, a parade or a Disney Halloween?

If there’s anything you like better than ethereal wallpaper, it’s a spa treatment. It’s not selfishness, it’s self-giving. Pamper your spirit and it will pamper you back! Ruled by Venus, you can honor your sign by letting others do things for you. The Full Moon Oct. 6 seconds this. Are you in the home stretch of your beauty routine? You may have a few more tricks up your sleeve, though you’d be comfortable if you stayed right where you are. Venus and Mars combine to help navigate your spending money. The New Moon Oct. 20 is an opportunity to start a new romance. Magic! The new 13-sign astrology means Libra begins with Halloween.

Venus and Mars stick together this month. They balance energies at home, work and out in the crispy currents of nature. You’ll need a healthy harvest to keep your spirits up. The New Moon Oct. 20 is a perfect time to add an inspiring venue to your list. How about one that’s virtual, like the Pie Queen website? (Eat dessert first!) Breakthrough to belief in your future.
