Your willingness to make tough decisions now will make your life easier in the future. If you’ve been wavering about financial matters, this is the right time to tune in to your gut feelings, get off the fence and take decisive action. The Sun illuminates your 2nd House of Resources until October 22, providing you with ample opportunities to weigh your budgetary options.
It helps if your choices are rooted in self-confidence, which thankfully receives a boost when attractive Venus enters Virgo on October 3. Your charming personality, creative approach, and sense of style should turn heads in your direction with this alluring transit. Yet the refined qualities of Venus in Virgo are contrasted with an adventurous spirit when courageous Mars enters Sagittarius and your 4th House of Roots on October 6. While you keep up appearances of commitment to your current situation, Mars at the bottom of your chart can incite conflict at home if you’re feeling hemmed in or bored.
On October 10, the first beneficial trine of pragmatic Saturn and whimsical Neptune occurs. You can combine your thoughtful analyses with romantic impulses, solidifying an inspiring partnership. These aspects return on June 11 and July 19, 2013, to manifest the dreams that are now taking shape.
The Sun’s dive into psychologically astute Scorpio on October 22 takes your thinking to another level, inviting profound conversations and serious research. The pressure of the Sun’s conjunction to restrictive Saturn on October 25 can temporarily block the flow of communication and sow seeds of doubt. Happily, lovely Venus restores your sense of self-worth on October 28, with her entry into sociable Libra and your resourceful 2nd House of Money.
Keep In Mind: Taking an objective look at what you’ve accomplished in life will show you how to get more money, respect and pleasure from your work.
Career: Weigh Your Options
Attractive Venus enters your sign on October 3, which can make you more appealing to others and even help you earn more income. Inspiration comes with dreamy Neptune’s opposition to this alluring planet, also on October 3. This could inspire creative ideas and will certainly spur your imagination. Yet even your usually practical mind might wander off into fantasy-land if you don’t keep at least one foot on the ground.
Nevertheless, Venus’ presence in Virgo until October 28 blesses you with more charm than usual, enabling you to make a favorable impression on others. Enhancing your appearance and taking the time to engage with people on a more personal level are good investments in your professional life.
October 5 is a serious day, however, with your brainy ruling planet Mercury joining no-nonsense Saturn. If you have all the facts you need then, you can come across as a highly knowledgeable individual. Just don’t expect others to understand you without being a careful presenter or a patient teacher. Restlessness arrives with active Mars’ move into mobile Sagittarius and your 4th House of Roots on October 6. This could spur you to consider relocating, or perhaps to seek more rewarding career opportunities.
On October 15, the Libra New Moon in your 2nd House of Money is another push in a different direction. Thinking about starting a business, adding to your current one or investing in training are potential positives of this event. The Sun’s move into intense Scorpio on October 22 is a signal to cut intellectual clutter to concentrate your words and your attention where they are most essential.
Love: It’s Your Time to Shine
There’s good news for your love life this month as amorous Venus is in your sign from October 2 until October 28. This tends to bring your most desirable qualities to the surface where they can be seen and appreciated by others. You can help this magic to happen in a couple of ways. The first is to be kind to yourself while making adjustments to your appearance and approach to others. Small consistent change will bring about more positive results than putting yourself under pressure. The second is to appreciate who you are and what you already have. Even if your romantic life falls short of your expectations, a little gratitude goes a long way toward making you more appealing.
Even though Venus in Virgo has a critical eye that spots tiny flaws, this planet’s opposition to dreamy Neptune on October 3 may dissolve your keen senses, allowing you to fall for someone who isn’t necessarily a realistic candidate for partnership. But any romantic naïveté is likely to pass quickly so that you can take corrective action if you over-evaluate someone.
Besides, you’re likely to be fired up when assertive Mars enters adventurous Sagittarius and your domestic 4th House of Inner Needs on October 6. While this might cause strife at home, it’s probably going to provide the spark you need to put more effort into an ongoing union or in pursuit of a new one. The enthusiasm of this transit contrasts with mental Mercury’s move into skeptical Scorpio and your perceptive 3rd House of Short Trips on October 5, but graciously moves between hope and doubt broadens your range of response and increases your chances to find happiness.
