Edible Astrology: October Edition

It’s Libra season which means, like the great scales, we’re feeling zen, balanced, and ready for anything – as long as everyone else is, too! We’re channeling our inner peacemaker and moving into October with an insatiable craving for treats – we’ll pass on tricks.

Get your October horoscope and find out which Halloween candy you need ASAP, based on your zodiac sign. 


Things are looking great for you this month, Libra. All is balanced in love and finances (as you like it). Not to mention, with Venus in Virgo, you’re feeling extra focused and fueled by your desire to succeed. It’s your time, sweet Libra. We know you love to share the spotlight, but this month is all you. Indulge in specialty cookies, Halloween themed, of course. It’s your birthday, after all. 


With Mars in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, you’re dealing with a strange mix of conflict and hustle this month, Scorpio. Mercury will enter retrograde in your corner, so frankly we should all buckle up. Let’s just say your moody nature will feel right at home this month. Remember to treat yourself, though – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the perfect treasure to dig out of your stash. 


The Sun is in Libra while Jupiter is in Capricorn, creating the perfect storm –a desire to overextend yourself and a craving for balance. Make sure to take care of yourself and don’t forget: Sometimes it’s okay to say no. But, say yes to a little something sweet and fruity like Tootsie Roll Fruit Chews. These Halloween gems are a throwback to trick-or-treating and will totally keep you grounded.


There may be some challenges this month as several planets move in and out of your corner, Capricorn. But, you can look forward to Saturn sending you good vibes and a chance for a big commitment. It’s a good time to take on something new – however big or small. While you work toward your latest endeavor, take comfort in Halloweens past with some caramel chews. So sweet, so delicious. 


Uranus, your ruling planet, is hanging out in Taurus this month and sending you all the responsible, practical energy. But, with Mercury in Scorpio, you can expect a few surprises. Normally a little temperamental, lean into the dependable energy that Taurus provides and opt for candy that you can’t go wrong with: Kit Kat® miniatures. These delectable little eats will give you a consistent reminder of how delicious October truly is. 


It will be a quiet month for you, Pisces – and that’s a good thing. Sometimes falling under the radar can provide the reset that you need. You may be feeling residual creativity from last month and, fortunately, the stars are giving you plenty of time to indulge. Use your imagination to take Dots gumdrops to the next level and create something sweet and full of joyful colors. 


Expect some confrontation this month, Aries. With Mars in your corner while Pluto is in Capricorn, you may see some power struggles emerge. You’ll gain balance, luck, and strength later in the month, so patience is key. Make peace with your adversaries – we mean loved ones –and share a fruity treat everyone can enjoy: jelly beans. With so many flavors to choose from, you’re sure to win them over.


Venus, your ruling planet,  is spending time in Virgo this month – as if you need any help in practicality. You can expect plenty of opportunities to succeed in work and partnerships. Things shift later in the month as Venus moves into Libra and reignites your passion for art and beauty. While you’re feeling so balanced, Hershey’s miniatures are an excellent choice. They’re classic and dependable – just like you.  


You may want to sit down for this, gentle Gemini. Mercury, your ruling planet, begins and ends the month in Scorpio. Not to mention, a mid-month retrograde creating some tension and anxiety. Let’s just say you may desire the comfort of a familiar favorite. Grab a pack of gummy worms (or several) and tap into your adaptable nature. Remember to take some time for yourself – you deserve it. 


We’ll have 2 full moons this month, loyal Cancer. Not to mention a new moon in Libra. Both will create lots of opportunities for you. Find closure from the summer months and ease into your favorite time of year (hello, cozy season). Love it or hate it, candy corn is a fall staple and we know you can find a fun way to incorporate it into your festivities. 


Bold Leo, tread lightly this month as you navigate some disagreements caused by the combination of the Sun in Libra and Mars in Aries. But, don’t worry, passion is on the forefront as the Sun enters Scorpio. It’s going to be a spicy month for you, cheerful friend. Lean into it and snack on some Hot Tamales®. The holidays are right around the corner and you’ll soon have that much-needed break. 


You’ll be in your element this month, loyal Virgo. Venus enters your corner and sets you up to indulge in your analytical tendencies. You’ll feel a sense of harmony all month long as you use your practicality to navigate the emotions that Mercury, your ruling planet, brings as it moves through Scorpio. You’ll love taking a trip down memory lane with your favorite lollipop flavor. Ahhh, tastes like childhood.
