The Sun is in your star sign Libra until the 22nd and there’s a New Moon here on the 16th. This is really important to hold on to during the topsy turvy month of October.
Your star sign Libra rules balance and harmony but this is a month when moments of peace or equilibrium may be few and far between.
Keep returning to what you love and prioritise self-love. This is especially important as you navigate some potentially tricky astrology.
Money is a key theme this month as communication planet Mercury is in Scorpio and your personal money sector until the 28th. Ensure your finances are sorted sooner rather than later. At the same time, get ready to be flexible and adaptable when it comes to money.
Mercury clashes with Uranus in Taurus and your joint finance sector on the 7th and 20th. Plus, the Full Moon on the 31st pulls Uranus in to the planetary pattern and Uranus is spontaneous and unpredictable.
In the midst of all this, Mercury turns retrograde on the 14th and remains in retreat until mid-November. This is the time to review your finances, a good time to renegotiate but not make major investments or final decisions.
When planets are retrograde, you don’t have all the facts at your fingertips, which is why it’s worth biding your time, until you know what’s what. Be prepared for some stops and starts and potential delays around money.
Trust your intuition during this period and see what emerges. It’s worth sowing seeds that could prove fruitful further down the line.
And, use your New Moon in Libra on the 16th to initiate new beginnings and reset your intention moving forwards.
Relationships too could be part of the puzzle as Mars, your partner planet, is also retrograde. Mars retreats back through your opposite star sign Aries throughout October.
The Full Moon on the 1st may reveal more as it falls in Aries, Mars’ sign of rulership. This Full Moon promises passion & strong emotions.
Mars retrograde could highlight events regarding an ex or someone who was in your life previously. Relationships could heat up now but try to steer clear of conflict or disputes.
The 9th, 13th & 19th look particularly lively for conflict or fallings out. This could involve a partner, either personal or professional. The astrology pulls family or the in-laws into the mix.
Try and be the one in charge when you need to, rather than allow other people to dictate what’s what. Stand firm and put yourself first. This is particularly important this month – look after your own needs first and foremost.
Venus Lights The Way
Your ruler Venus is hiding away for a lot of October from the 2nd to the 28th. You might have more time on your hands now or need to rest and retreat.
Look after you and lean on others – family or loved ones, those people who are your solid support. Line up mutually beneficial relationships in your life.
The turning point for you comes on the 28th when your ruler Venus moves into Libra. October could be an exciting month for love, but potentially tiring or exhausting too. Once Venus moves into Libra, do whatever’s necessary in your life to realign your Libra scales.
