This is another exciting month for everybody, as the Covid cultural reset continues on, with possible renewed outbreaks, and as the world is bracing itself for a highly divisive U.S. presidential contest where the gloves seem to be coming off, perhaps on both sides. On an individual level, there is a great deal of polarization also, as competing ideas within each of us strive for balance and relative harmony, and as we are all challenged personally to use the utmost discernment in attempting to sort out truth from fiction, self-deception, or outright tricks and chicanery. This latter comment arises from a plentitude of fuzzy-logic Neptune in this month’s configurations, not as obvious as Saturn-Pluto, and trickster Uranus, but still a notable presence. As for these other heavy-hitters on the transformational scene, the recent VirgoNew Moon from mid-September highlighted both Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus by close aspects. The Sun and Moon were in partile trine with Saturn, and likewise in precise sesquiquadrate with Uranus, bringing these two antithetical archetypes into prominence and therefore implicit contradiction. Do I stay safe or do I go off the tracks of previous experience in search of new adventures that might just save my soul? It makes for a tough choice. Fortune favors the brave, but as the old Arab proverb also relates, “Trust in God but remember to tie up your camel.”
It is also worth repeating that strong Saturn is also strong Saturn-Pluto at this juncture. These two powerhouse planets implying massive structural transformation at both collective and individual levels are a mere three degrees apart. Eris and retrograde Mars, as October begins, are together in the sky at the 24-degree mark of Aries, a degree that matches exactly the degree of the Saturn-Pluto midpoint. The Eris component, representing the archetype of the Feminine Warrior, in support of deep intention, indicates that individual responsibility is vital now, and that it is literally up to each individual to take a stand for what they most deeply believe.
Where Neptune comes in is in the powerful sextile between Jupiter in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces, supported by a subtle septile aspect of less than half a degree of arc distance between Neptune and a powerful presence of Uranus. Neptune and Uranus in combination suggests that when nothing else seems to work, an innovative spiritual solution may be closer at hand than we recognize. The truth of the matter is that the 3D physical world all around us that we can see, taste, and touch, is only less than half the reality we live, and in which we have our being. The rest is pure Spirit in action, “shaping our ends,” as the old proverb has it, “rough hew them as we will.”
It is also interesting to note that the Mercury Retrograde period that begins on October 13th in Scorpio, retreating to the last decant of Libra by November, presages some degree of confusion for the final three weeks of the U.S. election process. We will be in an introspective mode at this time, hoping to make sense of what we are seeing. Mercury turns direct before the polls close on Election Day, November 3rd, which is when the counting of all the mail-in ballots actually begins. Mercury does not get back to where it started, at the 11-degree mark of Scorpio, thus escaping its retrograde shadow, until November 19th. The way that things are shaping up, there is little question that the U.S. election results will not be available until at least mid-November, perhaps not even before the very end of the year.
Incidentally, there is a Last Quarter Moon on Friday, October 9th, when Jupiter precisely sextiles Neptune, when also a slowing Mercury, preparing to retrograde, opposes Uranus, and when the Sun and Moon are in close aspect to both Jupiter and Neptune. This is a very Neptuney time, and the weekend that follows is likely to be a great opportunity for distracting, dissembling, and spontaneous illusion. This is therefore a weekend that calls for the maximum in our own creative discernment to be able to understand what is truly happening. This weekend is also an invitation to Spirit, to ease our angst and our suffereing. This is truly a time to allow ourselves to see further into the beneficence of the Universe to be able to uphold us.
Through an interesting and challenging month we will need everything we have got, in terms of self-examination and looking beneath the covers of situations, to see this divisive and difficult time through to its conclusion. These must be our watchwords. As the Bible itself advises us, at some point we will know the truth, and the truth will indeed make us free.

This month continues the framework of introspection that has surrounded you lately, Aries. This idea is due astrologically to the ongoing retrograde of your ruler, Mars, in your sign, coupled with that of Mercury taking place mid-month in your sector of intimacy and personal evolution. You are examining, as though for the first time, partnership and close connection with others, and equally with yourself. It is essentially a time of paradox. Concepts of service to the larger collective alternate with the will to strive on alone, in a fundamentally optimistic and spiritually active period with yet great difficulties to be worked through. You are in a natural cycle of steadiness and sticking to the inherent limits, and yet also of being tempted into striking out in utterly new directions, come what may. Through it all, you are questing, and attempting to arrive – finally – at who and what you really are, how shaped, brilliantly, for this moment of yielding to your most compelling destiny, the only one that truly satisfies.
October opens with a dramatic Full Moon in your sign. This is the part of the story when the hero sits on a rock at the top of the mountain and contemplates life while epic music is playing in the background. Themes of healing and vulnerability may come to the forefront, as this Full Moon is also conjoined planetoid Chiron currently in Aries. The beginning of October may be a good opportunity to acknowledge your resilience. You have been hugely focused on your career and public expression, but a Full Moon in your sign indicates a culmination and integration of your emotional body, your needs, and being more fully aware of your feelings. Aries is a sign of action, which means talking about your emotions may not be your comfortable mode of expression. However with the Sun currently in the sign of Libra, you are being prompted to reflect on your relationships, and what they bring to your life. Your needs within them are illuminated as the Full Moon rises in Aries, and you could be called to clarify your feelings. Chiron currently transiting in Aries is an opportunity to transmute painful experiences into power.
Venus enters Virgo on October 2nd until the end of the month bringing an emphasis on logistical issues. You may need to organize your life more efficiently and attend to the nitty gritty details of your living arrangement. It’s a good time to get organized, plan ahead, and think about the tasks that must be accomplished to get where you want to be. More extensively, Venus in Virgo emphasizes your partnerships and financial situations. It may be your opportunity to delineate the contours of your financial or relational arrangements.
Your career comes into even greater focus during the second week of the month. Pluto stations direct in Capricorn in your career sector on the 4th and it is also squared by Mars – currently retrograde in Aries – from the 8th to the 10th of October. A situation at work you thought was resolved may come back up again or there may be a conflict of interest between you and someone who has power over you. This aspect could also correlate with strong ambitions, and the energy to achieve your goals. Be mindful of your desire to succeed during this period as you may not have the patience to deal with anything that stands in your way. You can get a lot done but you may need to backtrack if you rush to the finish line.
Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on October 13th and will be moving backward until November 3rd, only escaping its retrograde shadow by mid-November. This augurs a period of careful preparation, strategizing, and adjustments.
The Sun in Libra also opposes Mars retrograde in Aries on the 13th illuminating how your ambitions fit in the grand scheme of things but also the essential roles others are playing in your life to help you get there. It may be time to gracefully accept what others are bringing to the table while simultaneously clarifying your needs.
The New Moon in Libra on October 16th brings a renewing influence in your relationships. A new cycle begins in connection with your partnerships, and the place you want to make for them in your life. You may be pickier and wiser than you used to be but you could be feeling ready to envision new things flourishing in that part of your life.
A situation may gain momentum during the week of October 19th. You may start to see a picture emerge in connection with a big goal, an idea, and what you need to get there. Combining pragmatism and vision could yield interesting results but you may have to get out of your own way. The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22nd where Mercury is already transiting retrograde. The Sun in Scorpio could bring up fears and anxieties that get in the way of your creative genius. Monitoring your inner narratives at this time may help in keeping your momentum and trusting the process unfolding in your life. Soothe your nerves with physical exercise, find ways to release tension, and the rest will follow.
Venus enters her home sign of Libra on October 27th where she brings support for negotiations of all kinds. Mercury retrogrades out of Scorpio and back into Libra only moments before Venus gets there which brings a lot of attention to your opposite sign of Libra at the end of the month. Other people may play an important role in bringing you closer to your objective. You may find yourself juggling partnerships and contracts you have with others. It's a big theme this month and there is a financial undercurrent to your agreements. Others may be bringing support that helps you save money.
The Full Moon in Taurus on October 31st illuminates your finances. More extensively there could be an element of uncertainty with the Full Moon conjoined Uranus in Taurus. Clarity comes in the form of a gamble or a creative risk you must take to get ahead.
This is another wild month for you, Taurus, when stability seems hard to find. Your schedule of events is sidetracked with the unexpected, as fresh ideas abound, leading to exciting possibilities and partnership explorations. You are simultaneously suspicious of anything that strays too far from traditional ways. If you can tune in, you are filled with a solid feeling of what you need to do, a deep intuition, which, when you follow it, might be your truest indication of what is really going on. These are totally tricky times, and it is difficult to know what is real versus what is fake. In some ways, getting to that distinction might be your most important task right now; to search inside, to override your fears, to use discernment regarding what is real for you. Mid-month you are rethinking your relationship dynamic, and your creativity, into mid-November. All this year has been preparation, including these final months, for a huge coming-out party after the New Year for members of your sign.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 1st is an invitation to burn away all of your frustrations. The time has come for a clean slate. Let go of the fights, the misunderstanding, the anger, the resentments, the remorse, and all the things that may have made you feel inadequate, and misunderstood. I know this is not a small task but you are ready for a fresh start. Your worldview has been in extreme developmental transition, for months now, so that one focus of yours is also there. If you haven’t been able to completely resolve some injustice you might have felt, or have not been able to express your frustrations to others, you may feel like you want to assert yourself more openly now. You will want to be able to get to the point. You may want to go over what happened and explain something, go into the details. Mars moving retrograde in the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious has forced you to connect to your warrior energy more consciously and acknowledge that you might be angrier than you thought. You have the desire to assert yourself more openly but when comes the time your original impulse is slowed down, and you lose your momentum. The Full Moon in Aries is your cue to take full ownership of any feelings of frustrations that might have been under-expressed. The Moon is also conjunct Chiron, often associated with healing in Astrology. You may be able to get to the bottom of your sense of vulnerability related to self-assertion. You have likely done incredible work on yourself recently and you can begin to acknowledge your efforts.
Venus, your ruler, enters Virgo on the 2nd. Your ruling planet will be busy there, emphasizing the part of your chart that deals with creativity, romance, and children. The recent New Moon that occurred in Virgo in mid-September started a new cycle of growth in these matters. You may have a renewed incentive to apply yourself diligently when it comes to your art, your craft, and your passions. Venus in Virgo this month carries a fresh energy to what brings you joy for you, and it’s an excellent time to get better at doing what you love.
Mercury in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus on the 7th bringing interesting surprises to your collaborations. You might have to contend with a new dynamic. A partner may ask for more commitment on your part and this could be something you are not ready to give. Uranus in Taurus might give you the desire to keep your options open, and there is nothing wrong with that. Trust your intuition when it comes to what you need, and stay honest about where you stand. Others will have to accept that even though you are a gentle loving creature, you have a powerful need to follow your gut feeling.
Venus in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus during the second weekend of October. This is a fun aspect that could feel connective and insightful. There is excitement in the air and you may be buzzing with ideas. Make sure to write down your stream of thoughts at this time. There might be some insightful tidbits filtering through especially if you step out of your comfort zone.
Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on the 13th where it will be moving retrograde for the rest of the month, and beyond. When you take the retrograde shadow period into account, this goes on to mid-November. This retrograde occurs in your house of partnerships and may force you to revise your alliances. The people you associate with may be highlighted during this period, while Mercury retrogrades in Scorpio, and it could be time to reassess exactly whom you let into your life. There may be relationships that you have outgrown or on the other hand, a collaboration you are ready to deepen.
The New Moon in Libra on October 16th brings a powerful incentive to start reorganizing your schedule. This could be a very creative period for you, and one way to ensure productivity would be to recommit to streamlining your days. The New Moon in Libra also squares Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, which means that discipline will be needed at this time. Your habits, and the way you take care of your body could directly influence your level of productivity so it's a good time to establish or reinforce healthier choices whether this means cutting out sugar from your diet or doing more physical exercise. These commitments could have a long-term impact on your overall well-being and are worth the efforts.
The Sun enters Scorpio on the 22nd emphasizing your partnerships for the next thirty days. With Mercury already retrograde in Scorpio you may have been busy redefining the terms of an arrangement.
The Full Moon at the end of the month is in Taurus, shining a bright light on your personal needs and pushing you to acknowledge them. The self-reflection efforts you have made on yourself are not in vain. This Full Moon also precisely conjuncts volatile Uranus, so that there could be surprises in store, and certain kinds of greater intuitional perception. This is a powerful lunation for you, and could represent a culmination in regards to understanding what you need to feel good about yourself, and the needs of your body.
This is another of these intense, and yet interesting, months, Gemini. As is becoming obvious, and as dramatically reflected in the astrological indications, you are being drawn down into your depths for important answers. This is to experience your truest essence, and to enable you to make the best possible decisions. Your intuition is very powerful these days, and you win when you allow it the scope that it needs. This month, much of this is bolstered by an unusually strong retrograde of your planetary ruler, Mercury, beginning on October 13th and followed three days later by the LibraNew Moon. At this mid-month timing, in addition to the usual Mercury Retrograde phenomena, you will most directly feel this pull to the inside as you introspectively review your own creativity as well as concepts of service to others around you. Your task in this climactic month is to pay the closest possible attention to from everything that is happening within you, and outside of yourself, and to sort out the truth.
The beginning of the month opens with a Full Moon in Aries that brings to culmination recent tensions in your social sphere. People are not getting along these days and you may have tried to stay out of trouble by avoiding certain group dynamics. Power struggles and tension seems to be more frequent especially at work. Since you are someone who likes to be involved with society and contributing as best as you can you still have to try to meet others halfway because you sometimes have no other choice. You cannot completely isolate yourself and even though you don’t shy away from trouble you may have had to dig deep into your diplomatic reservoir in the last few months. The Full Moon in Aries highlights these tensions quite clearly, which in turn should help you situate yourself better within your social sphere. The Full Moon is also conjoined to planetoid Chiron often associated in astrology with vulnerability and healing. These themes reign high as the Moon rises Full at the beginning of the month. You may try to understand where you fit in and where you should invest your energy. On the other hand, you may feel like turning away from something that has become too complicated.
If you can’t find harmony out in the world you might find it at home; Venus enters Virgo on October 2nd heralding a period of greater ease with your family. The New Moon in Virgo last month signaled the beginning of a fresh cycle in that part of your life, and Venus will continue to bring momentum here this month. You may feel like investing more energy caring for family members or spending time with them.
With Mercury in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus on the 7th you may feel like disconnecting from the news. The constant flow of information could make you feel frazzled and it could be a good time to be more selective with your consumption of social-media and information. It's good to be informed but it might be even more beneficial to schedule small breaks from the news cycle. Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on the 13th, and will be moving retrograde until November 3rd. Then, the retrograde shadow period runs to mid-November. It's a good time to start implementing those better habits you’ve been thinking about. You may have greater discipline available to you or at least the push to implement discipline.
On October 16th the New Moon in Libra takes place in the part of your chart that has to do with your sense of joy, your creative impetus, romance, and everything that adds pleasure to your life. Venus in Virgo currently transiting in your home sector rules over this New Moon indicating that you may be in the process of redefining what homes mean to you. You could be contemplating a move, an upgrade, or a change of scenery. There could be a financial pressure or a contract that binds you to others making you feel like you have fewer options. This New Moon is not an easy one as it squares Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. However, the current pressure being felt is not a sign to give up on your big ideas but to be patient and keep pushing forward for what you want. Nothing comes for free in this world. The more deliberate you are with your intentions at this time the more solid the new forms emerging will be. Do not lose your sense of perspective in regards to the long-term visions you have for yourself.
Mercury Retrograde opposes Uranus in Taurus again on October 20th, an aspect that already occurred during the first week of October, bringing up daily habits and logistical issues. You may feel overwhelmed with your schedule and if you are working from home it could be harder to find the discipline at this time. Something could come up to derail your efforts to get organized or you could feel less focused.
The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22nd bringing reinforcement for the month ahead when it comes to streamlining your schedule. You may need to rid yourself of a few time consuming projects or habits in order to meet a deadline. Finding your footing amidst your many responsibilities is highlighted this month. The more you simplify your schedule the easier it will be to fulfill your obligations.
Venus enters the sign of Libra on the 27th of October and will bring a supportive trine to your sign. Artistic and romantic matters will benefit from Venus being in Libra especially during the first half of November.
The Full Moon in the sign of Taurus on the 31st of October is ruled by Venus in Libra and shines a bright light in the most unconscious corners of your life. Repressed desires may surface to be clarified, or it could be an opportunity to grab hold of what you truly want. The Full Moon in Taurus represents the culmination of a process in regards to your inner and outer sense stability. With Uranus highlighted there by this Full Moon, you could feel intuitive information coming through. There may be a lot of clarity available right now when it comes to what feels most destabilizing to you, and the opportunity to adjust your stance and find better footing in the world.
This is another important month for you, Cancer, one in which introspection reigns and you are closing in on your true goals. This involves a revitalization of many areas of your life, from career to private, and from partnership to individual creative productions, everything is up for review and revision as 2020 begins to wind toward its ending extravaganza. You may well come out of this climactic year in a very different place from where you started. As far as relationship goes, this has been a months-long evolution that is not nearly over, of some very basic character traits that you might be ready to let go of, with the helpful impetus of friends and your community. Don’t let your fears hold you back. Home and family is another area of significant impact this month. Your future plans are also evolving, although you might beware of going too far, too fast. Mercury retrograding through your sector of creative self-expression will be a factor in being able to fully commit, until the end of November.
The month opens with a big bright Full Moon in Aries in your vocational sector shining a spotlight on your aspirations. With much of the world being on lockdown you might have had to reformulate what is possible when it comes to your ambitions. Things may not be completely obvious with Mars still retrograde in Aries for the whole month of October and half of November. However the Full Moon in Aries at the beginning of the month brings a process to culmination. You may feel ready to make a decision in the context of your career. The Full Moon is also conjoined with Chiron in Aries, often associated with vulnerabilities and healing. The Full Moon conjoined Chiron, and this may be your cue to come to terms with the current reality of what is possible versus what may need to be put on the back burner for the time being. There could be a sense of resolve regarding your aspirations that feels both difficult but unavoidable. You may be forced to rethink your trajectory and your goals. With Mars in Aries currently squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn you may be divided between your ambitions and your desires for a partnership to work. It may seem like difficult choices with no easy solutions but the pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together and will eventually make sense.
Venus enters Virgo on the 2nd – until October 27th – emphasizing your immediate surroundings, and the pleasure you derive from where you live. Venus in Virgo for the next couple of weeks could find you attending to all the small details of your daily life that makes your existence more enjoyable. Venus in Virgo also highlights your relationship with your siblings if you have any, and you may find yourself in their company more often or planning to gather with them.
Your communications with others, social media, telephone conversations, emails, and the tools you utilize to exchange with people have been emphasized since mid-September with the New Moon in Virgo. You may have found yourself busier than usual communicating and writing. Venus in Virgo continues to bring an influence in that part of your life while also making all these exchanges more pleasurable.
The Last Quarter Moon occurs in Cancer on October 9th indicating some tension between your needs, your home base or your family, and your career. You may need to juggle more than usual around the second week of the month or feel like you are being pulled in opposite directions. There could be issues with who to trust or what to believe, or a conflict at home that requires delicate handling. You might also be contemplating a move. The second weekend of October could bring surprising albeit supportive new developments, so stay open to thinking outside of the box.
Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on October 13th and will be moving retrograde until November 3rd, or two weeks longer if you take the retrograde shadow into account. This period finds you rethinking romantic potentials, your projects, and what brings you pleasure. More extensively Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio brings attention to your creative and procreative potentials. You may be undergoing a period of revision regarding what you want to share with the world, your creative impulses and your vocational direction.
The New Moon in Libra on October 16th represents the beginning of a new cycle in connection with your home or where you call home. Seeds are being planted at this time under the pressurized and extremely highlighted glance of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. Difficult decisions could be coming regarding where you want to be. There could be an inability to choose between places or between people, and a prolonged deliberation before a decision. Libra is a sign of negotiation and balance. You may be required to carefully weigh all possible sides of a situation before you feel confident with your choice. Venus in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces on the New Moon could also be coloring reality with a glow of fantasy. There could be the idealization of a dream or a vision, which is not a bad thing, but your dreams may need to be weighed in the balance against reality before the forms you are trying to birth into the world can take shape.
The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22nd joining Mercury who has been there since the 13th emphasizing romance, art, and children. Clarification is possible in these matters around the 25th, when Mercury meets the Sun in Scorpio. A new idea or a solution is near! Pay attention towards the end of the month for an incoming message or a revelation that lights your path forward.
An exciting Full Moon in Taurus illuminates the skies on October 31st. The Full Moon is conjoined Uranus, a planet often associated with surprises and innovations, and may bring some interesting new developments, especially in your social sphere. You may feel a sense of clarification regarding with whom you want to connect within your social circle, or who can bring exciting opportunities.
This is another wild and crazy month for you, Leo, especially where your work in the world is concerned. You have been shooting off in all directions, and some are quite interesting and potentially productive. At the same time, though, some of these ideas will die on the vine, being a bit too far out for your current state of understandable caution. In any case it is your mission of service to friends and allies, and to the surrounding collective, that is your major focus. You have been evolving there, with further transformation still to come. Your dedication is strong, as is the potential for obstacles, and yet surmounting these might be just the ticket for advancing your self-esteem. You are also revising and reviewing your basic worldview and beliefs, becoming more and more ready to act upon these. When you can tune in and locate your bottom-line values, the principles that you must espouse, for long-term gain, you are ahead of the game, “for heaven and the future’s sakes.”
There is a bright Full Moon on October 1st taking place in the Fire sign of Aries. This Full Moon for you, Leo, highlights the recent adjustments you have had to make in connection with a philosophy of life, and more extensively your basic belief systems. Many things came to light since the end of March, and you have been in the process of readjusting your stance when it comes to the big picture. The Full Moon in Aries illuminates how much broader your vision has gotten recently. You may feel like getting involved actively with a cause, or realigning yourself on an educational path that fits better with your current circumstances. The eternal student in you could be hungry for more. This month especially, you want to perpetually broaden your mind, your horizon, and feel like you are participating in the world. The Full Moon conjunct Chiron in Aries brings up inner wounding that you might have, and speaks of your lucidity around inequalities, and your desire to help. Coming to terms with the current state of affairs takes time, and the grief can be tremendous. Since you are an action-oriented sign it also means that you cannot simply sit around and wait for a miracle to happen. It is a good time to utilize your courageous strength towards education, and empowering others with your passions.
Venus leaves your sign to enter Virgo on October 2nd, shifting the focus to your financial realm and more extensively on your values, and your sense of self-worth. Something is already in the works in that area of your life since the time of the recent VirgoNew Moon from mid-September. You might be in a process of reevaluating income, and this continues while Venus transits in Virgo almost all month. If you are self-employed or a contract worker it might be a good time to raise your prices, or negotiate a better deal that reflects your skills. Your work, your career, the cost of life, and how much you make will be a big theme all month. It will be a good time to budget and assess your financial situation.
Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus on October 7th, and this could highlight the precariousness of a work scenario. You might feel on shaky grounds when it comes to a vocational decision while also having to accept the uncertainty. Exploring your options and brainstorming could help you find new avenues of approach. There also could be some inner tension or anxieties to wrestle with, especially around the second weekend of October. The Last Quarter Moon in Cancer on the 9th calls for taking time out for extra rest. Spiritual necessities might loom larger than actual life ones. Spending time unwinding at home without striving could help to bring an enlightening perspective. Relaxing could actually be a productive way to handle tension.
Mercury stationing retrograde in the sign of Scorpio on October 13th might trigger a negotiation process with a family member or a scenario at home. There could be talks of relocation that somehow helps with your career. The retrograde period lasts until Mercury turns direct on November 3rd, or even two weeks longer when you take Mercury’s retrograde shadow into account. It’s a good time to explore your options, get to the root of a problem, and strategize. If you feel impatient remember that this Mercury Retrograde will straighten out by mid-November and that it is inadvisable now to “push the river.” It may take a few weeks before a clear solution or a compromise can be reached.
The New Moon in Libra on October 16th brings renewal regarding the ways you communicate with your surroundings. If you are someone who utilizes social media and the internet for your work, this New Moon could indicate a time when you recommit to being organized while streamlining your approach. You may feel like recommitting to spending less time on mindless information, and more time utilizing the tools available. Being intentional with the ways in which you utilize the internet at this time could yield really good structures later. With Venus currently in your financial sector ruling over the New Moon in Libra, there is an underlying momentum towards building financial stability for yourself which may have to do with the way you utilize social media. You do not need to have it all figured it out. However, it’s a good time to recommit to structuring your time by using the tools available to you.

Take the time to acknowledge the efforts and the work that brought you where you are. You have reasons to be proud of yourself and your accomplishments.
You continue with the ongoing transformation of your creativity and your self-expression, Virgo. Your quest is really about self-definition, the way that you come across to others, and even more importantly, the way that you have been evolving for how you see yourself. With your ruler, Mercury, going into its retrograde cycle mid-October, specifically the 13th, you are also re-thinking and re-imagining these issues of identity, and also the way that this manifests in your work and career, the outer world manifestation of who you are. Your higher mind inspiration is also working overtime, informing your investigations from a subtle and intuitional standpoint. You are idealizing your creative productions and also to a large extent important partners, tending to put them on something of a pedestal. Here’s hoping that they don’t wind up exhibiting feet of clay and falling off. All this month and through to the end of the next you are searching within yourself for answers and sometimes even for the awareness to frame the right questions.
The Full Moon in Aries at the beginning of the month highlights your close partnerships, and the contracts and agreements you have within them. There may be a culmination or new insights regarding a scenario that emerged in the Spring. You may feel a pressure to stick with something because it helps you get ahead even though you may also be tempted to break it off. It may be easier to stick with the benefits of an arrangement versus trying to break it off. The Full Moon is also conjoined to Chiron, often associated in astrology with vulnerability and healing. These themes reign high as the Moon rises at the beginning of the month. You may be trying to understand your role in a partnership and if something is not well balanced, the Full Moon makes it clear. There could be a recalibration needed regarding the give and takes of a scenario that involves someone else.
On October 2nd Venus enters Virgo gracing your sign with charm and connectivity. Venus will spend most of October in Virgo, there helping you connect to your desires.

Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on the 13th and will be retrograde until November 3rd, even two weeks longer when you take the retrograde shadow period into account. This retrograde takes place in your communication sector, and may force you to address important issues in that regard. Exchanging idea with others could feel heavier than usual, or more internal. The underbelly of certain dynamics might get exposed. The next few weeks could be a good time to address difficult topics that you would rather ignore, or that had been swept under the carpet in prior situations.
The New Moon arrives on the 16th of October, in the sign of Libra, heralding the beginning of a different approach in connection with your finances.

There could be confusion related to your finances, or these could be related to an important partner in your life. You may need to put some extra hours in order to realize an ambitious creative vision but you could already be feeling the shapes of things to come.

This is another crazy-making month for you, Libra, so that you must try not to succumb, or to be distracted from your strong intention.

This is as you strive to better understand your partner and your relationship dynamic in general. You are bent on exploring your inner world, to include the shadow side of material wants versus spiritual necessities. You are seeking inspiration from your depths, and you will find it there, providing you can stay as open as you can to all your possibilities.

However navigating the current relationships and meeting the expectations of the important people in your life could feel polarizing. You are no stranger to difficult choices and ambiguity but you could also be wrestling with a difficult constraint. The Full Moon in Aries is conjunct Chiron which is associated with wounding, healing, and vulnerability. These themes reign high as the month of October begins. You may have to come to grips with a difficult scenario that doesn’t seem to be moving fast enough. Mars transiting retrograde in Aries until mid-November could mean that things will take a while to unfold.
Your ruler, Venus, enters Virgo on the 2nd where she will spend the rest of October unearthing your deeper desires and some of your relationship apprehensions. Venus in Virgo will be moving in the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious supporting a process that began earlier in September around the New Moon in Virgo. Getting at the roots of what you want may demand humility and honesty. You may have to face some of your fears around inadequacy.
Tension is indicated leading to the second weekend of October when Mars in Aries precisely squares Pluto in Capricorn.

The New Moon in Libra on October 16th signals the beginning of a significant new cycle for you.

The intentions you plant now will take a while to get visible but new forms are taking shapes and are trying to emerge. The New Moon squares Saturn and Pluto in combination, located in Capricorn, hinting that you may have to fulfill familial obligations or feel limited by a living scenario. You may need patience and resolve to get where you want to go, but what you envision now could influence the next few years. Everything comes in good time.
You may start to see new pathways arising around October 19th. There could be a decision made by a partner of an associate that starts moving things along.

October is always familiar territory for you, although now, not so much. With Mercury retrograding mid-month in your sign, you are operating in a largely introspective mode, sorting out the answers to the deepest questions. In order to thrive at this time, also, you must learn to “expect the unexpected,” especially in connection with partnerships of all kinds. You are experimenting with new ways to see your prospective future unfold, and getting a new take on concepts of assistance to the surrounding collective. You have arrived at a point of departure from established ways, so that you no longer want to be a cog in an unfamiliar mechanism, but rather take serious part in something that you can put your whole heart into. A mystical collusion of conscious and unconscious, and of self and other, builds throughout the month to the Halloween Full Moon of October 31st, when it finds a degree of fulfillment.
October opens with a Full Moon in Aries, illuminating the health sector of your chart and bringing to completion a process that began in the spring. In the last six months you have become increasingly aware of a need to change some of your routine habits in order to achieve greater health.

This process is never over but you may recently have been able to find more discipline to implement structures and habits that benefits your overall well-being. The Full Moon in Aries also conjoined Chiron, a planetoid often associated with healing in Astrology. The beginning of the month could highlight a healing journey you have been walking in regards to the health of your body, and more extensively getting rid of habits that are detrimental to your overall well-being. Your ruling planet Mars is currently in retrograde, supporting the revision of your habits helping you zoom in on the problematic ones.

This is versus what you feel may still need to happen for you to find greater physical ease.
Venus enters Virgo on the 2nd, bringing an emphasis on your friendships and collaborators. A reset has already occurred in your social sphere, corresponding to the VirgoNew Moon of mid-September.

Venus in Virgo, nearly all month, will support connectivity and networking efforts in the context of your community.
Mercury is now transiting in Scorpio and opposes Uranus on the 7th of October, leading up to the Last Quarter Moon in Cancer on the 9th. Things that you have outgrown are becoming painfully obvious and this could play out in your partnerships. You may need to bite your tongue to keep the peace around this time. Mars in Aries retrograde squares Pluto in Capricorn during this time, the second weekend of October. This might bring to you an ‘’all or nothing’’ attitude, especially within your interactions. You may feel a powerful need to forge ahead, break what feels restrictive, or assert your dominance. Progress can be made at this time, especially with a sense of fearlessness, but it’s important to also keep your sense of perspective. Your long-term goals may not be compatible with your shorter-lived impulses, so plan accordingly. Mercury stationing retrograde in Scorpio on the 13th is another good testimony for taking your time and being strategic in the unfoldment of your plans. Mercury will be moving retrograde until November 3rd, after which it is recovering for another two weeks, which means it's better to think before acting for the remainder of that time.
The New Moon in Libra on October 16th augurs the beginning of a new cycle of growth in connection with yourself, especially regarding inner work. Committing to uprooting some of your self-defeating patterns will pay off in the following months if you can make a commitment to getting at the core of your more unconscious behaviors. Since this New Moon is in Libra, which is a sign of relationships, it also calls for a fresh attitude in connection with the way you approach partners. It may not be possible to uproot all of your more unconscious behaviors surrounding other people, but this New Moon brings a glimpse of what is possible when you get to the roots of your own motivations. Mid-October is an excellent time to clean your literal or metaphorical closet, and purge the excess, before the Sun enters your sign on October 22nd.

Once you understand what is holding you back there is no stopping you, and you may be in the process of doing just that.

This is another interesting and paradoxically confounding month for you, Sagittarius, when you are feeling the effects of deep transformation, ongoing in your life. This affects your ideas about your basis for taking action, and your very relationship to the material realm. You are imbued with an extreme dedication to inner purpose, an urge to really begin to make things happen in certain arenas, and you are confronted with questions regarding what that deep intention might entail. Especially after the Mercury station to retrograde motion of the 13th, you are in an introspective mode, looking more closely into what drives you in both outer world roles and responsibilities and also your relationship dynamic in general as you partner up in various ways with important others in your life. Surprises abound in this October timeframe, affecting your normal day-to-day routines, creating a degree of havoc, and yet providing new insights when you look at them in a slightly different way with eyes half-closed to see beyond the obvious.
The month of October begins with a Full Moon in Aries saturating the skies with a fiery glow that shines a spotlight on what brings you pleasure. There may be a project in the works or something related to your children being highlighted. More extensively this Full Moon could clarify a recent romantic scenario. Since the Moon also conjuncts Chiron, indicating a degree of focus on inner wounding, there could be issues that arise to make you think twice about these things. Whichever form your muse embodies, the beginning of the month represents a period of consciously acknowledging what you need to feel playful, what brings you joy and what feeds your creative fires.

If you’ve felt isolated or burdened by your responsibilities recently it would be a good time to ask for help. Collaborating with others is strongly indicated this month but you have to let go of the idea that you can do everything on your own.
It may feel like you have a lot on your plate leading to the second weekend of October. Mercury in Scorpio is opposite Uranus in Taurus on the 6th, while the Moon is in your opposite sign of Gemini. You may be able to accomplish everything you set out to do but the pressure is on. Finding time to relax and quiet your mind could bring surprising insights and help you prioritize. Your schedule may be a bit out of hand but you still need to sleep. The Last Quarter Moon in Cancer on the weekend of the 9th highlights the current tensions you may be feeling either financially or with a business partner. There could also be illusions or confusion to work through in regard to your family scene. If you have a desire to gain more financial autonomy, there might be something to give as well as to gain. You might have to recognize that you can do more with other people supporting your ideas. Take your time with negotiations, and make sure not to act on impulse.
Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on the 13th, and this will be your opportunity to revise somewhat where you are heading. Mercury will be moving retrograde until November 3rd – or even two weeks longer when you take the retrograde shadow into effect – and residing in your soul-sector, which might prove helpful in allowing you to sort out your deeper motivations. It’s important that you make space for down time if you want to benefit from this transit over the next month. You may have to address some buried unconscious material in order to feel more complete as you deal with a situation. It might not be the easiest or the most fun thing to do but doing so could benefit your partnerships and also your collaborations.
The New Moon in Libra could signal the beginning of exciting coming together in your social sphere and more extensively in your line of work. The New Moon is squaring Saturn and Pluto in combination, which means you may also be feeling the financial pressure of maintaining your allegiance to a certain group of people.

Either way you look at it, the pressure is on to adapt and change with the times, and this could be affecting your line of work or career direction. It’s an excellent opportunity to start branching out, and to find new connections in your domain. What is trying to emerge at this time may take several months to take shape but the New Moon represents a time of inception.
The Sun enters the Water sign of Scorpio on October 22nd signaling the beginning of a period of introspection for you. Whatever Mercury has been excavating in the last few weeks may be ready to get acknowledged. The Sun in Scorpio can help you see what you have been trying to avoid, and it's a good time to clean your closet.

This is another in the series of stressful months for you, Capricorn. You continue to be faced with a collision between jumping off the tracks into new directions versus staying the course of existing habits that could prove stifling to your developmental progress. This timing is heavy with responsibility, therefore, and yet ultimately freeing. You need a high level of discernment to make the decisions now that will best serve your future evolving self. Your own self-concept and self-definition are on the line, as you are perhaps forced to admit that what once worked for you might be no longer of utility in changing times, and with a recognition as well of your own independent growth. You must, to some extent, be willing to let imagination be your guide, even as you struggle to maintain some semblance of your previous identity. The mid-month retrograde of Mercury, beginning on the 13th, and lasting through mid-November, brings new concepts of a more vibrant future into view, for questioning and refinement of approach.
The month of October opens with a bright Full Moon in Aries in your home sector highlighting the need to balance your professional and private life. Things could be coming to fruition as you learn to settle into a new equilibrium between your career and your comfort zone.

With Mars currently retrograde in Aries, you may have been feeling a sense of urgency to find THE place you call home but things seem to keep getting in the way. If so, this is part of a bigger process which is highlighted at the beginning of the month. The Full Moon is also closely conjunct Chiron, which calls for an acknowledgement of potential insecurities when it comes to these topics. You may have an opportunity at this time to come to grips with some deep-rooted fears that stand in your way of finding your safe place.

It may still take a while for you to get there, but knowing what you want is the first step on this journey.

The Sun in Libra squaring Jupiter in Capricorn, with the Moon opposed, could accentuate this tendency during the second weekend of October.
Mercury stations retrograde in Scorpio on the 13th just as the Sun in Libra comes into an opposition with Mars retrograde in Aries. The potential for challenging circumstances leading to the New Moon in Libra a few days later is high, but remember that the current pressure is creating the space for new forms to come into being. This could play out particularly acutely in connection with your career goals.

Your desire to break free from the influence of others takes center stage, perhaps, initiating a time of questioning and revisioning.
The New Moon in Libra of October 16th brings a pressurized reset in matters related to your calling. You may have difficult choices to make but they come with a renewed sense of purpose.

The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio on October 22nd, shifting the attention even more on your creative goals and your participation within a community.

This is another rather intense month for you, Aquarius, with dramas of exchange of ideas, and of learning, related to both your public and your private sphere. You are taking ancient wounding into account as you communicate in a manner that goes far beyond the intellectual, and leaning into your inner world in an almost graphically sensual manner. This is just as this sensitive and subtle realm is moving in unusual directions. Your work in the world – and also your basic belief systems – are under review and, ultimately, revision, especially over the second half of the month following the beginning of the Mercury Retrograde period and the LibraNew Moon of October 16th. You are continuing to explore your depths, and reviewing your options, seeking a better match between inner and outer. You are feeling into a powerful instinct for action consistent with your evolving worldview, as you attempt to arrive at a decision process that is logical in a larger sense than simplistic rationality would seem to dictate.

You may also be in the midst of a big written project and it could be time to take stock of where you are before you can proceed ahead.
