Your ruling planet Mars remains retrograde throughout October in your star sign Aries. This can be a frustrating time for you, when you’re playing a waiting game. Plans may be unravelling or stopped completely.
At the very least, you may have to go back over old ground to reassess and review your next steps. The good news, however, is that Mars is retrograde in your star sign. So, keep active, be practical and busy and achieve what you can. Mars wants and needs action.
Full Moon Aries
As October begins, the Full Moon is in your star sign Aries on the 1st. Reignite your fire and spirit on the Full Moon – you’re going to need extra courage and strength moving forward as October looks busy and hectic.
The emphasis is on the earth signs, ruling work and money in your horoscope. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and do your best to stay on track with your long-term goals.
There will be times this month when you’re not in agreement with other people – the 9th, 13th & 19th could show where your allegiances lie. You might be taking on the boss or someone in a position of authority.
Remember that while your planet is in retreat, stealth is required. You’re back to full power mid-November – plan your coup for next month!
New Moon Libra
The New Moon on the 16th falls in Libra, your opposite star sign, another indication that you’re not the one in control or in charge this month. Hand over the reins to other people.
If you’re in a long-term relationship or marriage, lean on your other half. Compromise is needed but ask for help and advice when necessary too. It’s not a month when you can go it alone. Get the right people on your side – keep your friends close, your enemies closer still.
Communication planet Mercury is in one of the hidden sectors of your horoscope this month. Mercury is in Scorpio until the 28th and the Sun joins Mercury here on the 22nd. Scorpio is linked to money matters, also taboo subjects, such as death and rebirth, sex and power.
Be careful what you get involved in this month, especially once communication planet Mercury turns retrograde from the 14th onwards. Things may be not what they seem which means you’d be wise to avoid underhand activities or investments filled with promise.
Instead, use this period to review and reassess your financial situation. Keep your cards close to your chest and pay close attention to money matters.
Full Moon Taurus
The second Full Moon in October, the Blue Moon, falls on Halloween, the 31st. The Full Moon pulls in Uranus, the planet of spontaneity and unpredictability, currently in Taurus and your personal money sector.
As this Full Moon lights up the financial sector of your horoscope, this is when you’re likely to see changes, either to your income or your attitude around money. For some of you, freedom beckons. You may get an inkling of where change is coming on the 7th and 20th.
October’s a tricky month to navigate. Channel your energy into what’s important, steer clear of energy-sapping conflicts or disputes and look after no. 1. This is a month to pull back and reassess your options ready to get fired up again come mid-November once Mars is back to direct motion.
