How has Libra season been for you, lovely Libra? Hopefully a fresh new start has been in the air and the New Moon gave you a renewed sense of self! This month starts with a reminder from Pluto (1 October) that your roots can define you if you allow them too. Conscious choice will support you to move forwards in the way you want, beyond ancestral and family patterns. As Mars moves into your area of self, there’s a drive to assert yourself and speak out, and perhaps fight for the equality and balance that are core to your world. If this energy is too passionate, giving Mars some focus through energetic activities will help ease the tension.
Mercury and Venus start the Scorpio shift, and for you that’s a focus on income, assets and possessions. Tidying up your finances, setting new budgets and looking for new ways to protect your assets all fit well here, especially before Mercury begins his retrograde trough this sector on 31 October. As Venus joins in Scorpio on 9 October, she brings her cosmic sweetness to help fill your coffers so make the most of any opportunities that come your way at this time. Venus isn’t so comfortable in Mars’ sign, as she prefers pleasure and gentle flirtation to the intense intimacy of Scorpio’s fire. Yet it is through vulnerability and honesty that true unity is born, and Venus is always on board with connections of any kind. The Aries Full Moon is your chance to tidy house with relationships, and deep work around releasing childhood beliefs can break old patterns and allow you to meet your loved ones from a fresh, new space.
13 October may bring from surprising developments or unexpected news, and trying something new or finding unusual solutions will be the way forwards. Future career goals are in your sights mid-month (18th), and realistic pathways towards long-term financial growth will become apparent, perhaps with family support or by clearly seeing how your unconscious patterns around abundance. October 22 is a dreamy day to bring imagination to creative routines or explore magical rituals. And Venus brings one last kiss to Mercury as it starts it retrograde on 31 October, allowing you to speak sweet words to increase financial abundance – think a flash sale or asking for a raise – though be patient as with Mercury stationing it may take a while for the wheels of commerce to turn your way.
