Libra season may feel like you needed to slip on your superhero cape and head off to save the world, and Mars moving into this area on October 4 encourages further efforts. Mars can get hot-headed, though in Libra’s coolness he is more likely to shout about peace and equality than get into a brawl. Try bringing others together to fight for a local community issues or protect the rights of the vulnerable to make best use of the Mars’ need for action and purpose.
Mercury is the first planet to move into Scorpio on October 3, followed by Venus on October 9, and this is when you crave downtime. Think of it as the disco nap you need before the hectic pace of your birthday season and end of year festivities. It’s also a chance to pause and take stock so you can make the most of the last drop of Jupiter in Sagittarius next month. At the end of the month, Mercury will go retrograde in this area of your life for a few weeks, turning your thoughts inwards and creating a more reflective, intuitive stance. And perhaps it’s just what is needed after all the growth this year, whether it’s felt supportive or not. Use the New Moon in Scorpio to search internally; are your own worst enemy right now or if someone else is standing in your way? Hope lies in understanding.
Mid-month, make the most of the Sun sextile to Jupiter on Oct 14 bringing an extra dose of confidence as your friends or “tribe” offer encouragement towards your efforts. Heed any wisdom from these quarters, they offer insight on any final tweaks necessary to fulfil the growth you’ve been aiming towards. The Full Moon in Aries that same day helps you see how a personal passion has fuelled a collaborative project, and while it may have been “yours” in the beginning it now belongs the world. And doesn’t that feel like a good thing?
