Money & All Things Hidden
There’s conflicting planetary activity currently taking place in the star sign Libra. This is one of the hidden sectors of your horoscope. On the one hand, it’s linked to money matters, especially joint finances but it’s also about the metaphysical realm, all things taboo and hidden. Here’s the planetary picture in Libra this month:
- Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
- Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th
- Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd
Straightaway, you see that this is a month to be ambitious and assertive when it comes to money matters. This is where Mars comes in, the planet of action and drive. Mars is a forceful planetary energy and you might be caught up fighting for your rights. Or, be in a situation where you’re trying to share money fairly.
The key time in the month for Mars is during the New Moon on the 6th, a symbol of new beginnings. Mars is particularly lively on the 8th & 9th. This could be a time when you’re pushing for what you want. Or, you might be caught up in a competitive situation or an argument about money, sex, power or another taboo issue.
If you want your needs met, you might have to take a strong stance yourself, which doesn’t always come naturally to you as a Pisces. Use the timing of your astrology well and don’t commit to anything if you don’t want to until after the 18th.
This is a significant date for you as it’s when Mercury turns direct and this can often bring new information to light. Or, the money you were waiting on materialises.
Also, your ruling planet Jupiter turns direct on the same day and this could feel like a key turning in a lock, opening a door. It might be the date when an inheritance comes through or you take on a new property.
Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your future goals especially after the 18th. If you play your cards right mid-month, you could find that a new opportunity is just what you need to sort out a financial issue in one fell swoop.

Keep the faith and ensure your positive nature helps you overcome any fear, lack or scarcity. Your attitude can make a huge difference moving forwards. The Full Moon on the 20th could bring things to completion as it too cuts across the financial axis of your horoscope.
Stretch Your Comfort Zone
Scorpio is a fellow water sign. You often feel in your element when the inner planets move through this sector of your horoscope.
This could feel easier for you than the planetary activity in Libra which is more inner than outer. Here’s what’s happening in the planetary picture in Scorpio:
- Venus (love/relating) – until the 7th
- Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd
- Mars (action/drive) – from the 30th
Scorpio season peaks in the last week of October once the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd. Sign up for a new experience or adventure late October and stretch your comfort zone.
Scorpio rules travel and study, the bigger picture in your life. Seek out mystery, find what’s extraordinary and push back the boundaries of your life.
Pluto could be the planetary equivalent of the spanner in the works this month. It turns direct on the 6th, the same day as the New Moon. Therefore, if you’re to start over and be able to make the most of your opportunities, especially financially, something’s got to give. Consider what’s not working out and where you’d be better off cutting your losses.
Pluto clashes with the planets in Libra. This could flag up a deficit. You’re wise to pay close attention to money when Pluto’s active. Try not to miss any payments and create new systems that help you keep close tabs on all things financial.

Libra doesn’t only rule money in your horoscope but taboo matters too. It can be linked to issues around power & control, sex & sexuality, death & rebirth. Go deeper this month and look at where else in life you’re wise to explore more.
Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts
Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments until the communication planet is back up to speed on October 18th. Here are some more tips:
- be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
- take a step back, do less not more
- double-check everything, read the small print
- chase up old contacts, revisit the past
- use all the re-words – revise, rework, review, reconsider
- rest & retreat when you can
- do your research ready to act when Mercury turns direct
