The big event for you this month is the Jupiter-Neptune aspect on the 12th. In the topsy turvy month of October, Jupiter and Neptune remind you not to lose hope and faith and to keep tight hold of your dreams.
These two boundless, creative planets are your co-rulers, Jupiter currently in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector, Neptune in Pisces and your personal sector. Ultimately, this is about your hopes and wishes and your belief in your future goals.
These two planets met back in February 2020 and again in July 2020. This is their third and final connection this year. They flow both ways.
In other words, what you give, you receive in return. Favour friendship and connections during this bounteous and artistically mutually beneficial alliance. Find your escape from the everyday, the mundane.
The mundane side of life could present challenges this month. Money is the big one. The Sun is in Libra and your joint finance sector until the 22nd and Mars is retrograde in Aries and your personal money sector throughout October.
This is where things could get heated and the Full Moon in Aries on the 1st and the New Moon in Libra on the 16th will point the way. If you have to discuss or debate financial negotiations, don’t expect things to be straightforward.
The 9th, 13th and 19th are the trickiest dates. Perhaps, use the New Moon in Libra on the 16th for a smoother negotiation. Either way, compromise is required.
And, with Mars on go slow, try and put off any major investments or transactions until Mars is back up to speed mid-November. Until then, keep your cards close to your chest and rework your strategy. This is a good month to be thorough and ensure you know all your options.
Communication planet, Mercury, also turns retrograde in October on the 14th. Mercury is in Scorpio and your travel and education sector and it’s here where there may be delays or frustration.
Mercury retrograde themes are often about communication chaos. It’s important that you allow extra time and flexibility if you’re travelling or taking a test or exam.
Don’t leave anything until the last minute and double check your plans and paperwork. Know that life could step in to stop you in your tracks. Do what you can within your limits.
Mercury retrograde is a good time to get away if you can, to be somewhere different and take time out.
Allow yourself space and time to dream and contemplate and line up future plans, even if you can’t get ahead this month. Research, study and gather information, especially if you’re planning a big move next year.
When Life Has Other Plans
Be flexible and adaptable this month. Remember that you’re one of the mutable signs of the zodiac and dual-natured. Uranus, the planet of spontaneity and unpredictability, is also in action on the 7th, 20th and during the second Full Moon of the month, on the 31st. This Full Moon is a Blue Moon.
Uranus springs surprises and if you want to expand your horizons or visit relatives, be ready to act fast. Also, know that the opposite may occur and you have to change plans rapidly.
Yet, sometimes it’s when life creates diversions that you end up on an unexpected journey that’s no less worthwhile. Be open to new learnings in October as life could take you down an unexpected path that leads to revelation and awakening.
Venus In Virgo
Finally, know that you have love planet Venus in Virgo and your relationship sector from the 2nd to the 8th. Lean on the one you love, be there for loved ones. Relationships and partnership are your key support throughout the month of October.
