The Libra scales are in evidence this month. For you, this flags up your friendship and group sector. Talk planet, Mercury, is in Libra until the 3rd and Venus, the planet of relating, until the 8th. These are both sociable planet/sign placings which suggests a lively start to the month.
There’s more, however, because the Sun is in Libra until the 23rd and action planet, Mars, enters Libra on the 4th, where it remains until mid-November.
This creates a lot of energy in one of the most social sectors of your horoscope. This fits for you if you’re a typical Sagittarius, because you’re one of the more extrovert signs and you enjoy a wide circle of friends and varied activities.
If you’ve been thinking about joining a club, group or society, it’s an ideal time to do so. If you want to widen your social circle, again put time and energy into your friendships. Also, create friendships that are mutually supportive rather than being a one-way influence.
The Full Moon on the 13th is particularly sociable for you. And, on the same day, there’s a gorgeous Sun-Jupiter planetary connection. Jupiter’s your ruling planet and this creates a feel-good vibe, being around friends who make you feel good and whom you can influence in return. It’s all about networking, connections and positive vibes.
There are a couple of provisos when it comes to these areas of your life. Firstly, Mars can be an argumentative influence so take care that you don’t spend too much time around people who are temperamental or difficult.
Instead, channel Mars’ energy into peace-loving activity as Mars in Libra is a positive Mars for collective and collaborative ventures.
Also, be wary around loaning money or getting involved with a rich crowd, for example. This is because the slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, are currently in Capricorn and your personal money sector.
On the 1st, 7th, 14th and 28th, they clash with key planets in Libra. To keep your money safe, it’s important to put firm boundaries in place. Consider carefully what you get involved in financially and think things through logically and rationally before leaping in.
Pluto is especially powerful throughout October as it turns direct on the 3rd and plays a pivotal role in the Full Moon on the 13th. This means that Pluto never moves far away from 20 degrees Capricorn and its planetary energy is intense. Notice where money’s disappearing in your life and try not to let negativity block the flow of abundance.
This is significant because on the 17th there’s a rare semi-sextile aspect between your planet Jupiter in Sagittarius and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter’s working alongside Pluto bringing its positivity, belief and feel-good vibes to Pluto’s themes of loss, power & control or intensity.
This is a good time to raise your vibe, whatever that means for you. Actively include positive affirmations in your life and don’t allow fear or scarcity to take hold. Jupiter’s influence is there for you, a reminder to trust your luck.
If you’re in tune with your Sagittarius birthright, you know that luck and opportunity work in your favour, sometimes at the 11th hour. However, you need to cultivate a positive attitude and trust in your natural instincts.
Plus, if you are going through a tough time financially with Saturn and Pluto kicking in, know that your planet Jupiter will move into Capricorn and your personal money sector early December. As it remains in one star sign for a year, what you put in place now could pay off royally before long.
Dive In Deep
Also, this month, it’s important to create some time and space for your personal projects. It would be easy only to get involved in what’s going on in the world or in your social life. Yet, there’s a strong influence building in your previous star sign, Scorpio.
The planet ruling the mind, Mercury, is here from the 3rd, followed by Venus, the planet of love and relating from the 8th. Mercury in particular turns your focus inwards. It can be a time of deep thought and analysis, ideal for research and studying.
Know too that Mercury remains in Scorpio until December 9th, as it turns retrograde on October 31st and remains on go slow until November 20th. This Mercury is diving in deep in to the psyche and the hidden places.
You might be exploring the metaphysical realm, be talking to spirits or be on a psychic or spiritual path. You might choose to explore therapy or become a coach or counsellor yourself.
The Sun’s move into Scorpio takes place on the 23rd, followed by a New Moon in Scorpio on the 28th. This would be ideal for taking time out, giving yourself space to reflect deeply. Don’t get so caught up being busy that you lose sight of a deeper sense of purpose, meaning or fulfilment.
Changes At Work
In some way, this is linked to your work or what you do on a daily level. Uranus, the planet of change, is currently in Taurus and your work and health sector. Uranus is active this month on the 7th, 12th and 28th, the day of the New Moon.
This could bring changes to your schedule or a desire to do things differently. Uranus favours freelance work, freedom and space. Listen carefully to your body, your mind and spirit.
Tap in to what’s needed and be vigilant about self care. Also, be there for the ones you love because when planets are in Scorpio, you may be called to step into a caring role.
Love & Patience
Love feels mysterious this month with Venus, the planet of love, diving deep into Scorpio. Sometimes, this flags up an affair or private liaison. Or perhaps, you’re learning a lot about yourself and what you want and need when it comes to love and relationships.
There’s a Mercury/Venus connection on the 30th which could prove insightful. However, with your partner planet, Mercury turning retrograde the following day, the 31st, this isn’t the time to rush love. Instead, favour patience and a soul-mate connection.
