October is going to be intense, there’s no two ways about it, and for your sign it begins with the NEW MOON on the 4th that kicks off your best 2 week window to move ahead on work projects, job interviews or auditions, ventures with co-workers, hiring people to help, dealing with paperwork, getting your health taken care of or set in a new direction, or doing something new for pets. This New Moon is part of a Grand Cross which means it will be doubly powerful and key in with lots going on behind the scenes, travel, legal matters, educational pursuits, agreements, sales, writing, local activities, vehicles, electronics, media, weddings, and being of service to others.

Saturn and Uranus adjust to each other on the 5th which means the serious commitments, ambitions, limits, endings, or responsibilities that you have with partners, attorneys, agents, clients, specialists, opponents, or other key people will meet with a turn in the road involving hospitals, retreat, research, investigations, artistic projects, film, music, spiritual pursuits, romantic getaways, or development. Find ways to adapt to the needs with the relationships and the need for freeing yourself up for interests in the other arenas.

Venus moves into Sagittarius on the 7th which kicks off a new love/money cycle that will carry you through to Oct 7th. This will smooth things out or help you attract more easily in areas of sexual interests, intimacy, reproductive needs, divorce, or the financial areas of loans, inheritance, bankruptcy, insurance, taxes, investments, settlements, commissions, alimony, child support, or a partner’s money. There should be ways to find enjoyment through these realms or to get your income or love life flowing through what you do here. As far as Venus being your ruler, this shift should help lighten the intensity of the last month and raise you into a more adventurous vibe. The only exception to the rule will fall on the 10th and 16th when you may have something going on with a friend, group, the internet, astrology, charities, parties, gatherings, social networking, or aspirations that in some way cloud the situation.

Mars moves into new territory on the 15th and this new placement should light a fire under you! Mars is taking up residence in your house of true love, creative projects, recreation, and children so things will heat up with more passion and motivational force over the weeks ahead. In a relationship? You will be able to get things going. Single? The action is amping up. This transit will help you push creative projects out the door and have some physical fun as well. The only thing to watch out for is the fighting aspect of Mars and getting too argumentative with loved ones or in the name of your creative direction. Note that 2 days stand out, the 19th and 31st, when you and another person are going to get involved over these creative, love, children, or recreational inspirations to shine the passion, rev things up or fight for what you need. To this end, whatever comes up on the 19th expect it to hit an even higher note on the 31st.

The FULL MOON on the 18th is a LUNAR ECLIPSE and a major peak for you in the 12th house. This means that something is hitting a high point with a time of retreat or behind the scenes activity, with research, investigations, development, or isolation, with hospitals, prisons or other institutions, with a romantic getaway, clandestine romance or Karmic relationship, with film, music, art, dance, meditation, yoga, poetry, magic, or psychic interests, with addictions or bad habits, or a period of imagination or inspiration. Expect that some part of what has been going on will ‘eclipse’ out as you reach this summit, celebrate, achieve, wrap things up, or mark endings.

Mercury Retrogrades on the 21st and will backtrack through November 10th. You have been feeling the Shadow of this Retrograde since the 1st so you may have an idea already about what is going to slow down or reappear from the past, what needs reworking, revising, releasing, or reclaiming, in the area of romantic partners, business partners, agents, attorneys, specialists, clients, opponents, competitors, or other significant relationships. It is important to listen to what is coming back around and look at any agreements, talks, meetings, sales, or decisions involved to see if you want to revamp something here or if there is more to purge or settle. It’s ok to sign agreements or make purchases if involved with past people here but better to hold off for brand new opportunities until after the Retrograde is over if you can wait without harming the situation. The Sun will pour into this realm on the 23rd and travel here for the next 30 days so you are about to get very busy with at least one of these people and it will involve your physical presence, identity, image, body, name, or brand.

The last aspect of the month involves Pluto and Chiron as they open up an opportunity to look at wounds and powerful changes or healing. This will play out over a friend, group, the internet, astrology, charities, a social gathering, aspiration, and something legal, travel, educational, wedding, media, or belief oriented. It may be that there is something financial, sexual or divorce related at the core of this wound and an opportunity to transform it now if you are willing.
