If you’ve been waiting for the clouds to clear before you make a major decision, this month should bring you the answers you seek. The Sun is floating through your metaphysical 12th House until October 22, which could keep you in a relatively docile mood. However, your thoughts are likely to crystallize on October 5, when factual Mercury and realistic Saturn join in the last degree of objective Libra before forging into your sign later that day.
The blindfold will be pulled from your eyes and you will see exactly where you stand. Whether the news is good or not, confusion will fade and you’ll see exactly what step to take next. Fortunately, go-getter Mars, your sign’s co-ruling planet, fires into exuberant Sagittarius and your 2nd House of Income on October 6, motivating you to think on a bigger scale and consider taking some risks in financial matters.
A spiritual teacher or motivational mentor broadens your perspective when the Libra New Moon in your 12th House of Destiny trines visionary Jupiter on October 15. The Sun enters watery Scorpio on October 22, churning up another wave of enthusiasm to enhance your creative capacities, empower your personality and encourage a stronger desire for physical activity.
Lovely Venus’ shift into harmonious Libra on October 28 offers you a sense of inner peace by connecting you with nature or the arts. You won’t be shy about what you discover, because chatty Mercury is launched into opinionated Sagittarius on October 29. Lastly, the dependable Taurus Full Moon on October 29 illuminates your 7th House of Partnerships, emphasizing the obligations and expectations that define your personal and professional relationships.
Keep In Mind: Facts are only the starting point, not the end of a significant question. It’s what you do with the information that dictates your future.
Career: Line Up Your Ducks
This month could be a turning point in your work life. It starts with the life-giving Sun in compromising Libra and your 12th House of Privacy until October 22. This may keep you out of the spotlight, so don’t push hard for attention if you’re not getting it. It’s wiser to use this time to complete unfinished tasks, repair damaged relationships and take a more reflective look at your professional situation. Earning the support of colleagues might not seem to be a priority now, but it could make a major difference in the near future.
The 12th House is also a House of Spirituality, reminding you to get away from the challenges of daily life to strengthen your soul, heal your body and make room for your intuition to flow. You may benefit from teammates and organizations when attractive Venus enters vocational Virgo and your 11th House of Groups on October 3. Cooperating for the benefit of a common cause is a healthy way to use this transit, which lasts until October 28.
Mars, your traditional ruling planet, fires into visionary Sagittarius and your 2nd House of Income on October 6, which can trigger bigger ideas about making money. Yet learning to stretch yourself by developing new skills and educating yourself about potential opportunities is smarter than taking immediate economic risks. The Sun’s shift into your savvy sign on October 22 is a “go” signal for initiating contacts or starting projects. Just be patient and make sure all your ducks are in a row when the Sun joins serious Saturn on October 25.
Love: The Tale of Two Transits
There are two distinctly different astrological periods for you this month. October begins with the Sun in Libra, a lovely and sociable sign, but one that occupies the 12th House of Escapism in your chart. This relatively quiet time ends on October 22 when the Sun fires into Scorpio and the dynamic 1st House of Personality.
While the first three weeks of October are generally better for quiet times in out of the way places, allowing you the space to think about your relationship needs, it’s not all about walks alone in the country or living like a monk. Getting away from it all is still desirable but you may be a bit more restless and willing to take risks when your passionate ruling planet Mars enters adventurous Sagittarius on October 6. Your cautious and calculating side may give way to enthusiasm that provokes you to go far in pursuit of pleasure. Sports and outdoor activities are good ways to apply the physicality of this transit.
Mars in Sagittarius is also useful for testing the waters to try different kinds of activities and being with different kinds of people. Its full impact may become more obvious on October 22 when the Sun enters your sign. This provides more energy and makes you more likely to be noticed by others.
Some delays or disappointments are possible when the Sun joins restrictive Saturn on October 25. The point, though, is to take yourself seriously by recognizing where you have to put in hard work and come up with the discipline needed to fulfill your potential.
