You’ve been dwelling inwards for much of Libra season, as the balm of Venus in Libra soothed inner wounds and encouraged connections beyond the veil. Once Mars moves into Libra on 4 October, you’re feeling energised to pull the skeletons out of closet and delving into those unconscious patterns that hold you back. Deep work done in this way over the next 7 weeks won’t always feel great but offers positive outcomes, especially while Venus still treads here (until 9 October).
It’s not all naval gazing for you this month, as you walk a fine line between inner dwelling and outward expression. As Mercury moves into Scorpio on 3 October, followed by Venus on 9th, the cosmic scales tip towards your sign and the focus moves to how you express yourself. Will you focus on appearance, perhaps a new style? Or can Mercury here encourage you to share your point of view? Your depth and penetrating insights are a gift, so trust yourself and share freely with others.
These planets will slowly trigger the voice of Uranus, who has been shaking up your relationships since 2018. Now is the time to trust what you’ve learnt, understand what no longer fits and honour what each relationship needs by making the necessary changes in yourself. As the Sun moves into Scorpio (24th), and then the New Moon happens in your sign, your annual refresh takes place. See it as your reset button, a chance to make yourself a priority and put steps in place to honour the gift of who you are. A close opposition to Uranus brings a factor of exhilaration and restlessness, so be sure to make intentions that align with your needs, not the wishes of others.
When Mars squares the Nodes (22nd) and then Saturn (28th) tensions with siblings can spill forth, or frustrating communications from an authority seem to hold you back. Remember, you cannot change other’s opinions of you but you can choose not to make their thoughts your reality. Mercury will spend over 6 weeks in Scorpio this year, as he turns retrograde here at the end of the month (31 October), so it’s worthwhile reviewing your self-expression and if there is a way to bring more sweetness to your words.
