Career: Tie Up Loose Ends
It could be your time to shine with the Sun in your charming sign until October 22. While this can raise your self-confidence, it’s best to be discreet and use the power of your personality judiciously. That’s because the confidence-raising force of this solar transit is countered by your lovely ruling planet Venus’ move into your 12th House of Behind-the-Scenes activities on October 22. Working quietly to achieve your goals by shoring up professional relationships is likely to be more effective than pushing ahead on your own.
This can also mean that tying up loose ends might be necessary before getting new projects off the ground. Inspiration is present on October 3, when Venus opposes magical Neptune, but this could also send you off into a fantasy land where you spend too much or over-estimate others.
If you do suffer delays or disappointments, there’s another gust of wind in your sails on October 15 with the New Moon in Libra. This is excellent for updating your appearance, your attitude and your resume. Projects that have been rejected or failed in the past could be ripe for restarting if you’ve made the necessary adjustments to your plans.
Finances come into the foreground with a solar shift into accountable Scorpio and your 2nd House of Resources on October 22. Knowing where to cut expenses of time, money and energy could be the key to getting more back in return. The Sun’s conjunction with stern Saturn on October 25 is a reality check, but if you can pass it, Venus is ready to reward you when entering Libra on October 28.
Love: Be Fair to Yourself and Others
You should be feeling more confident as October opens with the Sun in your sociable sign. This solar presence increases vitality and your willingness to take risks. But in your usual refined way, you’re unlikely to become pushy. That’s also because your gracious ruling planet Venus enters fastidious Virgo and your 12th House of Secrets on October 2. This represents more self-analysis that can help you unravel relationship mysteries of the past to make you sharper about them in the present. You may be more critical so it’s important not to become lost in worrying about your flaws. We’re all imperfect (in our own perfect ways) so be kind to yourself as you make the minor adjustments needed to regain a sense of personal balance.
Venus’ opposition to dreamy Neptune on October 3, though, might be a romantic side trip where your heart takes over completely, leaving common sense behind. Privacy is a big issue with Venus in your 12th House until October 28. You may prefer the company of quieter people in discreet locations. Serious conversations are also on the agenda with mental Mercury in scrutinizing Scorpio and your 2nd House of Resources from October 5-28. Assessing the relationship between what you give and what you get back in return can lead to some alterations in partnership patterns.
Being fair to yourself is essential and accepting less is not the best way to find emotional fulfillment. Venus’ move into your gracious sign on October 28 starts a four-week period of greater attractiveness to others.
