Work Your Relationships
Your ruling planet, Mars, enters Libra on the 4th, the sign of relating. Mars remains here until November 19th. Straightaway, you know that this month’s success lies in the power of your relationships, your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional. Other planets in Libra:
- Mercury (communication) until the 3rd
- Venus (love & relating) until the 8th
- The Sun (essence, ego) until the 23rd
Your planet Mars isn’t relaxed in Libra, however, because you can’t do things your way and you can’t get ahead as fast as you would like. You have to take other people’s needs into account or rely on other people more than usual.
In some cases, you will positively enjoy handing over the reins of life, encouraging or allowing someone else to take the lead or take responsibility for a situation. While Mars is in Libra, aim for more equality in a relationship and find the right people in your life whom you can partner with.
Mars in Libra is the peace lover. This is a great Mars for fighting for equality or justice out in the world in a non-violent way.
Relationships are definitely intriguing this month. On the 8th, your partner planet, Venus, enters Scorpio where it remains until the end of the month.
This means that Venus is in Mars’ sign of rulership, Scorpio, and Mars is in Venus’ sign of rulership, Libra. This is called mutual reception in astrology and it means that each planet is strengthened when it works with the other.
Consider what this means in your life? Are you and a partner swapping roles in some way? Are you noticing where your strengths lie and how you can step in to support each other in new and different ways.
For example, one of you may be playing a supportive role financially as Scorpio rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope.
If you’re looking for love, choose someone different from your usual type. Think about the male-female balance and look for a man who’s in touch with their feminine nature or a woman who’s in touch with their masculine side.
Redefine what gender means to you. Consider your sexuality and what brings you pleasure. Throw yourself in to love, be open-minded and connect with another person on a deep or soul-mate level.
A Powerful Full Moon
Relationships peak around the Full Moon which falls in your star sign, Aries. The Full moon takes place on the 13th and this is a powerful Full Moon thanks to its interaction with the planet Pluto, Scorpio’s co-ruler.
Feelings and emotions are likely to be intense mid-month when the Full Moon peaks. A relationship situation could be turned on its head, whether you’re the one cutting ties or someone else acts decisively.
If you’re losing sight of who you are in a close relationship, it’s during the Full Moon in your star sign, Aries, when you can regain control or power in some way.
Savvy Money Moves
Scorpio season kicks in early this month as talk planet Mercury dives deep into the star sign which rules the psyche and all things hidden on the 3rd. Other planets in Scorpio:
- Venus (love & relating) from the 8th
- The Sun (essence, ego) from the 23rd
Therefore, this is your cue to turn your attention to your finances. Scorpio rules all money transactions, such as inheritance, savings & debt, taxes, alimony, investments, payments, etc.
This month, you may start to discover what Uranus in Taurus and your personal money sector means for you. Uranus is in action on the 7th, 12th and 28th.
Uranus brings change and craves freedom. You might choose to cut some of your regular payments this month or look for alternative ways to earn money, perhaps on-line.
This isn’t the month to take a big financial risk. In fact, you’re wise to be cash savvy. Focus on your long-term future and goals instead. Continue to aim high and work smart.
In two months time, lucky Jupiter will join Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn starting a 12 month period when your career or vocation can peak. Focus now on ways whereby you can earn well or secure your financial future.
And, if you have a surplus money, thanks to an inheritance, gift or bonus, invest it wisely. Uranus is linked to the collective and you may start to see the potential of your money and how you can make a difference out in the world.
Whatever your current plans with regard to money, finances and security, crack on in the first half of October. This is because communication planet, Mercury, will be retrograde in Scorpio from October 31st until November 20th.
Traditionally, this is not the time to make major investments or sign or seal an important contract. Instead, aim to wrap things up on or around the Full Moon.
There will be times when work feels overly intense this month. Power planet, Pluto, turns direct on the 3rd and never moves away from 20 degrees of Capricorn. The Full Moon could be pivotal for your working life and a lot depends on the actions of a third party, a boss or business partner.
Also, your planet Mars squares up to Saturn in Capricorn on the 27th. So, some of you will be working resiliently and determinedly throughout October. It’s a good month to have a goal and be motivated by money and status. Team up with the right people and you can go far.
The New Moon takes place in Scorpio on the 28th, three days before Mercury switches direction on the 31st. Uranus is involved once again so there’s an unpredictable vibe around money. Yet, if you play your cards right, you could set yourself up nicely.
Again, the key is to use your connections or contacts. Or perhaps, your other half strikes it luck. All in all, October is a top month to focus on love and relationships, the right kind of partnerships and savvy money moves.
