Your ruler, Saturn, has more of a voice this month as Libra season sends triggers his way. As Mars moves into Libra on October 4, strains and frustrations may flare up as all the inner work you’ve been doing feels like it has come to naught in the face of external advice. The key is to see this as a phase of closing down, releasing, and Mars can give you the focus and drive to cut away a lot of deadwood. Look at flare ups as a guidance system to where adjustments are needed or choices can made, despite your wish to keep things as they are. A square to Saturn from the Sun on October 8 could shine a spotlight on important choices. Trust in yourself, and if inner voices say “but you can’t”, acknowledge them and then just do it anyway – you are an adult now making adult decisions, aren’t you?
There will be triggers to those rumblings in your home life this month, as Mercury (3 October) and then Venus (9 October) move into Scorpio and call your attention in the opposite direction – your professional or public life. If you have been resisting adjustments at home or with family, finding a work-home balance could be like a skyscraper during an earthquake – wobbling every which way looking for your centre of gravity. It might not feel like it, but there are amazing choices available. Look for the direction that feel most authentic to you and follow that – water flows along the path of least resistance for a reason.
13 October is a day to spend with your friends or tribe, speaking about bigger picture ideas and planning ways to save the world. Mercury turns retrograde on 31 October and he will spend 6 weeks in total in this area of your life. A chance to reflect inwards on your career path or professional goals, seeing if you are walking the road you truly need to be on. With Mars in Libra during this time, there is a sense of researching ALL the information before making the clear decision you know you need to make.
