Your Friday The 13th October 2023 Horoscope Is Actually A Vibe

Didn’t see that one coming.

Somewhere along the way, Friday the 13th got a bad rap. Though the date is actually considered lucky in numerology, it’s riddled with superstitions and alleged bad luck. Fear not, though, because the astrology of October 2023’s Friday the 13th will help you get organized and achieve your goals — and just in time for Halloween, too.

For the first time since October 2017, Friday the 13th will take place during the most spine-chilling time of the year, adding to the spooky SZN vibes. But the cosmos have something different in store for your zodiac sign besides black cats and broken mirrors.

On Oct. 13, Mars in Scorpio will form a supportive trine to Saturn retrograde in Pisces, making it easier to complete tasks, set goals, and find stability. As this transit goes exact at 0 degrees, every zodiac sign will experience emotional clarity, prompting them to make logical decisions that allow emotions to be front and center. While these two planets are considered to be the most challenging in astrology (and sworn enemies, at that), the harmonious nature of the trine aspect will bring out the more constructive qualities of these two planets and, in turn, your own abilities.

Since Mars is the faster planet and in the sign of its rulership, it has the upper hand in this transit. Saturn, however, is currently retrograde and in the mutable water sign of Pisces, which means that boundaries and limitations won’t be as much of an obstacle. The Scorpio and Pisces-ruled house in every sign’s birth chart is where the natural ability to overcome challenges will unfold. With the water element being accentuated, now is the time to trust your intuition and lead with feeling.
