Autumn is in full swing, and while we’re sure you’re well stocked up on cozy cardigans, boots, and potential Halloween costumes, you may also want to purchase some travel-friendly clothing this month. Venus enters jet-setting Sagittarius on October 7, giving our closets a major case of wanderlust, especially when Mercury ends its retrograde on the 16th. Pack well and plan outfits that make you feel stunning for your travel selfies—and bring a warm coat. 

Don’t forget, it’s still spooky season, especially when the sun enters Scorpio on October 23. Break out your favorite all-black outfits, dramatic jewelry, and some velvet to create some creative looks. Treat yourself to some sexy lingerie when Mars (the planet of passion and sex drive) enters seductive and sensual Scorpio.
