Love & Pampering
Venus, the planet of love, is in your star sign Capricorn from the 5th until the end of the month. This could be a truly wonderful time for love. It’s a good time to prioritise your close relationships.
The 19th could be a stand-out date in this respect when Venus teams up with Uranus in Taurus. Taurus is your romance sector and Venus and Uranus together symbolise sudden events that boost your love life or enhance your world in other ways.
Venus in Capricorn is perfect for a make-over or buying a new outfit that suits you. It’s time to treat yourself and be kind to yourself. If life is sometimes all work and no play, make sure you find time for pampering this month.
Friendship and group ventures are a big theme this month during Scorpio season. Ensure you have people in your life who support you and are there to hold you up. Here’s what’s happening in this part of your horoscope:
Planets in Scorpio:
- Mars (action/drive) – all month
- Sun (illumination) – until the 22nd
- Mercury (communication) – 5th to 24th
Look out for new beginnings on the 4th when there’s a New Moon in Scorpio. You might decide to join a group, club or society. Or, perhaps you’re ready to move away from a group of people or separate from a friendship in your life.
This is because the New Moon is opposed by Uranus in Taurus that adds an impulsive edge to the New Moon vibe. Other people’s behaviour could shock you. Or, perhaps you realise you have to prioritise a child or a lover in your life. Do what feels right for you without breaking the law or breaking too many rules.
Mercury and Mars in Scorpio add boldness and quick wit to the mix. This is great news for playing an active role within a group. Yet, it’s not straightforward astrology. This is because on the 10th, Mercury and Mars come together in Scorpio. This combination is both passionate and potentially argumentative.
Plus, on the same day your ruling planet Saturn squares both the inner planets. You may need to be bold and confront other people or give tough love. There may be a financial or emotional issue that impacts your friendships or group ventures. Money could stop you doing what you want.
Fast-forward a few days and both Mercury and Mars are opposed by Uranus on the 13th & 17th. This combination feels volatile, whether you’re the one behaving impulsively or other people are out to shock. Someone may make an independent move and embrace freedom rather than group consensus.
Try not to get overly involved in any dramas. At the same time, ensure that you and the ones you love remain safe and secure. It’s not a good time to take foolish risks however incensed you are. Things could get heated and possibly controversial.
You could have a major fall-out with someone close over money. Or, feel outraged about what’s happening within society. It might be personal, it might be linked to the collective.
There are some key dates when you may have to step in and take charge or take control. You may be called to be in a position of leadership. The dates to note are the 16th, 21st & 27th.
Also this month, a new set of eclipses begins cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This eclipse cycle will continue until October 2023.
This is the social sector of your horoscope, linked to friends and group activities, society & politics, also children, pregnancy & lovers. These are the areas of accelerated growth, where change may happen and fast.
The first eclipse is a Full Moon Lunar eclipse on the 19th. This could coincide with a social event or big occasion. Eclipses have a theme of bringing what’s hidden too light.
Note that this is the same day as the stunning Venus-Uranus trine aspect. Therefore, a positive event could be the reason that your life is about to go down a completely different route.
Rest of the Month’s Astrology
Talk planet Mercury remains in Libra and your career sector until the 5th. Plus, on the 1st, there’s a lucky Mercury-Jupiter trine aspect which spells good news for work and money. This is the third meeting of these two planets. They connected on September 20th & October 4th. Trust your luck and arrange a key meeting or interview on this date.
On the 22nd, the Sun changes star sign and enters Sagittarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Two days later, talk planet Mercury joins the Sun in Sagittarius on the 24th.
This could be your cue to take a step back from a social situation that’s wearing you out. If you’ve been too involved with other people or burning the candle at both ends, slow things down and line up some quiet time, some peace and solitude.
Eclipse Do’s & Don’ts
Eclipse season is here and a new Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle is underway. Here are some eclipse tips:
- Try not to fear an eclipse – they are a reminder that we’re not always in control.
- Don’t choose an eclipse date to launch a project or start something new.
- Wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. Eclipse symbolism is shadowy and hidden.
- Once the eclipse shadow lifts, then you can try to take advantage of any changes that have occurred.
- Know that the eclipses are closely linked to the karmic nodes & wheel of destiny – they offer a turning point.
