It looks like you’re on a roll this month as Mars jumps into extroverted Sagittarius and your 1st House of Personality on October 6, motivating you to assert yourself as you push ahead on all fronts. Your physical vitality is strong, yet you could be so enthusiastic about showing others what you can do that you become overbearing. Fortunately, the socially astute Libra Sun in your 11th House of Friends and Associates sensitizes you to others and helps you balance your aggressive approach until October 22.
Meanwhile, just prior to the loud arrival of rambunctious Mars in your sign, cerebral Mercury and solemn Saturn enter your 12th House of Spirituality on October 5, in an ironic move that turns your thoughts inward just as your behavior becomes more highly animated. Although Mercury only stays in mysterious Scorpio until October 29, slow-moving Saturn remains in your 12th House of Endings until December 23, 2014. This is a long-lasting transit that will require you to retreat from the outer world, redefine your life path, and clear out old emotional baggage.
Powerful waves of expansion and contraction are washing over you now, as cheerful Jupiter aspects somber Saturn — yet the gracious Libra New Moon on October 15 falls in your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes, encouraging you seek moderation. The materialistic Taurus Full Moon on October 29 illuminates your 6th House of Work, while thoughtful Mercury enters fun-loving Sagittarius, reminding you that maintaining your daily routine is crucial to keep your life in order and reach your goals.
Keep In Mind: Even if others think they know what you’re doing, you have more going on than they realize. There’s nothing wrong with keeping some of your plans to yourself.
Career: Patience and Persistence
Sometimes colleagues slow you down, but it’s better to match their pace than to race ahead this month. That’s because the energizing Sun is in your 11th House of Groups until October 22, making teamwork especially important. Sure, you may have to make compromises, deal with indecisive colleagues and endure tiresome meetings. But if you can find the patience to manage them gracefully, you will develop alliances that can help you in your current situation or be of assistance in finding new work.
A gentler approach to people is also recommended with sociable Venus’ shift into precise Virgo on October 22. This transit occurs in your 10th House of Career and will last until October 28. Managing tasks with precision and demonstrating your mastery of details can go a long way to enhancing your professional status.
The necessity of being careful is underscored when mental Mercury joins unforgiving Saturn on October 5. Be sure to have the facts to back up anything you say. If you don’t have them, take the time to study and do the research needed to demonstrate your seriousness. If you’re waiting for important information, you might need to be a little more patient.
However, fiery Mars rockets into Sagittarius on October 6, which tends to make you want to go faster. It’s fine to be more assertive and active as long as you choose the right situation and avoid pushing others too hard. You can use the force of this potent planet in a competitive way, yet the only real competition you really have is with yourself.
Love: Burning with Desire
There should be plenty of excitement in your personal life when assertive, sexy and sassy Mars enters your enthusiastic sign on October 6. This tends to fire you up with increased energy and a need for new experiences. Standing still in a stable relationship isn’t easy and is best countered by doing some different things with your partner. Of course, you could become just a little pushy and while you may think that you’re just being playful the other person might not see it the same way. Therefore, learn to prod in a gentle manner to avoid ruffling feathers.
If you’re single and looking, this transit provides the punch needed to get noticed. Just be careful on October 7 when Mars slides into a stressful square with squishy Neptune that can have you chasing illusions or making unnecessary sacrifices.
Friends and groups are important with the lovely Libra New Moon in your 11th House of Organizations on October 15. This is excellent for smoothing out relationships with pals but can also stimulate your social life when meeting someone through shared interest in a cause. Idealistic impulses could lead you to personal rewards.
The Sun’s shift into Scorpio on October 22 adds a dash of caution and could encourage you to be more reflective and less impulsive. However, safety is not a concern when the impetuous Aries New Moon on October 29 explodes in your 5th House of Romance. Sudden attractions and rash behavior can destabilize your personal life, but experimenting with different kinds of behavior or people is bound to be exciting.
