YOUR OCTOBER HOROSCOPE
ctober kicks off with the sun in Libra, making it an ideal time to nourish our relationships,connections and community. Libra signifies a time for balance and harmony—and since October comes on the heels of one of the finer new moons of the year (the September 30th new moon in Libra) advantage abounds—especially now that there are no inner planets currently retrograde. During so much of 2016 we’ve contended with high-impact retrogrades, and finally, we reach a turning point in the year. Things are about to pick up, fast!
Early in the month, we have auspicious aspects. Venus forms a supportive angle first with Neptune on the 1st, and then with Pluto on October 5th, helping us develop our dreams and own our power. Then on the 7th, Mercury, the planet of communication, joins the Libra party as he preps for one of the most positive transits of the year on the 11th when Jupiter and Mercury will align at 7 degrees of Libra—a highly auspicious aspect, supporting us immensely.
Yet, in the days following this gold star day, challenges could erupt, especially on the full moon. This full moon in Aries occurs right next to Uranus, the planet of revolution, and Eris, the planet of discord. While Mercury squares Pluto, Pluto helps us confront our shadows. Expect things to feel edgy in the days surrounding the 15th. On October 19th and the 20th, we’ll experience Mars and Pluto aligning at the same degree (15 degrees Capricorn) and Mercury in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries at 22 degrees. Expect to feel determined, capable and unwilling to accept defeat.
Come the 22nd the sun moves from Libra into Scorpio (the sign of transformation), prepping us for the end of harvest season— and the descent into the darker half of the year (for those of us in the north). You’ll want to know what you are aiming to transform as the powers of Scorpio prevail. It’s said that at this time of the year, the boundary between worlds grows thin as the month closes out, so don’t be surprised if your psychic superpowers perk up!

|September ended with a stellar new moon in your house of money, setting you up to earn big this month. Over the last year you certainly up-leveled, even at times hitting major upper limits. Hopefully, you did the deep inner work needed to sustain your new level of success because right now you are poised to expand financially. Think about residual income, new products and services, and how to make the most of what you got goin’ on. With Mars shooting through fellow earth sign Capricorn, productivity could be off the hook this month. But watch out for the Aries full moon on the 15th. This one may shake things up. Stay centered and trust. The month closes out on a positive note, especially on the 26th when your ability to earn gets another boost, when Venus in Sagittarius offers support to Jupiter in Libra right before the Scorpio new moon on the 30th.|
|Last month, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion, made his way into your sign, kicking off 13 months of positive transformation. Now with your solar return (aka birthday) upon you, it’s time to solidify your intentions for how you want to use this year. Pay attention to October 11th (and the days leading up to it) as good news abounds in your direction. Commitments made then are auspiciously blessed, so don’t be shy about asking for what you want. Yet, it’s not all smooth sailing. The full moon on the 15th may rock the boat. If so, trust that everything is happening for a reason, and you will indeed emerge all the stronger. The month closes out with a new moon in your solar second house on the 30th. Use this time to solidify your financial goals.|
