The focus will always be on your professional life at this time of year or on whatever it is that you channel your competitive spirit or a drive to succeed into. For some this might mean making the most of a chance to gain some real progress and momentum on the career front, for others it might be chasing a personal goal and for some a combination of the two. Either way, until he leaves your career sector, the most professionally charged and competitive part of your chart on 31st October, Mars fuelling your warrior and competitive spirit and the drive to make things happen. The Sun is here until 23rd October but having Mars here makes all the difference. What is not the norm at this time of year is to have planets in your income and work sectors at the time but this year, you have the full package. Some of the most powerful planets in the solar system have come together to make this an empowered month across the income, work and career fronts and by coincidence, for at least part of the month the doors will be open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on all three fronts. This will be especially so between 9th October and 19th October, a 10 day period where the stars align but where old doors are flung wide open. Meanwhile, while the Sun will return to your friendship sector on 23rd October and Mars on 31st October, Venus begins the month here and is making the most of a chance to experience this her way. When the Sun and Mars return it will be to focus on your social life, friendship, teamwork and networking in general while for Venus, this is a social and serendipitous part of your chart. Until leaving on 8th October, Venus will bring the laws of attraction and synchronicity together, increasing the potential for serendipitous moments and/or encounters. It is on 8th October that Venus will return to a nostalgic part of your chart, where she will begin a month long nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane that will end with her return to Capricorn early next month.
Venus, the planet of love is making this a month of two halves and not just because of whether she is focused on the past or the future but how this will support romantic and relationship matters at different points in the month. Venus begins the month in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, where as the planet of love she will be working to create serendipitous moments and/or encounters. Here Venus can bring the laws of attraction and synchronicity together, making it easier to find yourself in the right place at the right time. While the is no planetary activity in your relationship sector, the Moon will start the month here, creating positive conditions for friendship and relationship building from day one. While Venus will have long gone by the time the Moon returns to your relationship sector on 29th October, with the Sun here by then this will also see the month end under positive conditions for friendship and relationship building. Meanwhile, Venus’ departure and return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on 8th October will not just shift your heart’s focus onto the past but the planet of love will shift her focus onto matters of the heart. For the next four weeks, Venus will take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. With Uranus in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, this will give you better access to the doors already open to the past and second chances. This will be especially so when the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 21st October to 23rd October, with these romantically charged lunar vibes likely to be thick with romantic nostalgia. However, while this is in the heart of Venus’ nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane, with the planet of love not just returning to Capricorn early next month but then spending the next four months here, there could also be a sense of anticipation in the air.
While all the planetary activity remains on the income side of the financial fence and it will stay that way for the rest of this year and into the second half of next year, this is a month of two halves. However, in saying that both halves are stacked full of potential and are part of a wider set of dynamics that could make this a stunning month across the income, work and career fronts. What makes this a month of two halves is Saturn’s direct turn in your income sector on 11th October and Jupiter’s direct turn a week later, on 18th October. The month begins with both still in retrograde motion and the focus still very much on the rear view mirror. While having the Sun in your career sector until 23rd October and Mercury and Mars all month, along with the North Node and the dwarf planet Ceres in your work sector is making it easier to access the doors still open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential it goes both ways. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your career sector, rarely is there any planetary activity in your income sector at the time, let alone the two most powerful planets in the solar system. Saturn is the first to turn direct and while this will shift some of your focus onto the road ahead it is not until Jupiter turns direct on 18th October that the lights will turn green. It is during a transition period, when Saturn is in direct motion but Jupiter is still in retrograde motion that the Moon will move through, from 14th October to 16th October. Both Jupiter and Saturn will spend the month at a near standstill so there might not be too much forward movement. However, with Jupiter leaving at the end of the year the planet of luck and expansion won’t want things to stay stalled for long. Jupiter will form a friendly aspect to Mars in your career sector on 19th/20th October, with a chance to piggyback off the momentum the warrior planet of the cosmos will be working to create professionally.
