Your Winescopes Horoscope for the month of October 2011. Find out what your zodiac sign is up to this month! Are you busy Taurus or dreamy Pisces in October? Should you have that special bottle of Champagne now or wait for later in the month?
(March 21-April 19)
Double check your grocery bags as you may be dropping things this month. We would not want you to cry over spilt wine now do we? There is much to do so your focus could be elsewhere as October begins, namely on the romance that is in the air. Have that special bottle of Champagne and a few raspberries on hand for just the right occasion or show your adventurous side with a refreshing Mojito with Bubbly.
(April 20-May 20)
You are putting in those extra hours at work. Your friends may not understand, but you will know when it is time to relax and bring out the reserve Pinot Noir. Business relationships are changing and your horizons expanding so you may miss a few dinners. Partnerships are in focus and you gain balance on the Full Moon of October11. Make a simple, yet appealing Herb Mushroom Crostini to pair with that Pinot Noir.
(May 21-June 20)
Consider a double take – have two instead of just one bottle of Bubbly on ice just in case there will be more to your party. This is a month of unexpected visitors so prep your Hors d’oeuvres before the party starts so you can mingle and answer the door. Have a recipe at hand you can quickly whip up, like Bruschetta inspired by Mario Batali for that very cute date.. or at least an appreciative roommate.
(June 21-July 22))
Share a glass of Chardonnay with a family member (that is of legal drinking age) and take time to linger over good conversation. Your plans may change unexpectedly. For a change of pace, Dungeness Crab Cakes with Cucumber Mint Salsa will wow your friends and relatives. Ask them to pitch in with makings these scrumptious morsels.
(July 23-August 22)
Trust your instincts as you try to decide what wine to choose for a family meal. Your usual appreciation for bold flavors has mellowed out at the beginning of the month. Towards the end you are seeking to sink your teeth into a fruity and bold Syrah that goes nicely with a Rustic Beef Brisket. Over a hearty meal your issues will resolve.
(August 23-September 22)
You have been patiently hoarding your best wines in your closet (or under the stairs). Expect family and friends to become demanding now in requests to try your special wines. Remember sharing can be more fun. Bring out a unique Tokaj Aszu for a wow factor to your next gathering. With so much sharing, family and friends should be in good health and cheer!
(September 23-October 22)
Venus will be in your sign this month and help you to regain some of what you have lost. You will feel stronger by the end of the month. Saturn is slowly making its way through your sign and will soon urge you to travel. Why not take a weekend trip to Napa Wineries and enjoy the natural scenery and wineries.
(October 23-November 21)
Don’t miss out on what you already have by wishing for something else this October. Sure life may seem boring and conventional at times, but it takes two to spice it up. Create a little spice with Pancetta-Wrapped Tiger Prawns in Spicy Aoli. Venus spends some time in your behind the scenes sector and the New Moon in your sign on October 26 brings a burst of energy.
(November 22-December 21)
Think of making long term investments. Get out that Nebbiolo to put away for the next ten years. Don’t go into the first week of the month with a major hang over. Moderation is the key to enjoyment and you need to be alert at work since new business opportunities are just around the corner. Aim high with Baked Pork Chops with Piquant Sauce.
(December 22-January 19) or (Dec. 23-Jan. 20)
You are craving a seductive Cabernet and an equally seductive date to have it on. Don’t settle for less since October will be a month where your dreams come true.

Also be relieved that the stress will lessen after October 11. You will be back in the kitchen making those double chocolate brownies for someone you love.
(January 20-February 18)
You will be tempted to indulge in a pricey Pinot Noir. Try to keep within your budget, but let yourself splurge occasionally (within reason). This is only temporary, and soon things will be looking up. You are recharging your perspective on life, especially in the career zone and there should be plenty of things to get excited about coming up. Family and friends are supportive. Get ready to open that Magnum of excessive Pinot Noir next month!
(February 20-March 20)
Your dreams will be vivid this month and bring wisdom to a situation. Situations from the past may reappear like visions of last nights overindulgent dinner. Lighten things up with Grilled White Sea Bass paired with Viognier that will taste swimmingly fabulous. You may have some choices to make this month, so get those extra minutes of sleep before making those choices. It is a great time for progress!
