Your ruler Mercury moves into Scorpio on 3 October, and being a water sign this offers connection between mind and emotions as you explore the deep, intense Scorpionic themes. Rich curiosity is piqued, and you may be drawn to any way to exchange of information – from researching, to learning situations to even being a teacher yourself, it’s a chance to learn, reflect inwardly and then pass on what you understand. You may find yourself busy in your own backyard as we call it in Australia, your neighbourhood and places you are familiar with. It is also a time when siblings become important, and you may wish to be spending more quality time deepening connections here. This is also the realm of the Goddess, Mother Earth, so working to create changes that support the Earth can also use this energy wisely. Mercury spends extra time in Scorpio due to the retrograde starting on 31 October, so whatever crops up from 12th will be revisited again between now and 22 November. The Scorpion loves to dig underneath, and an exciting opposition to Uranus in Taurus on 7 October may undercover hidden gems from higher realms or bring deep insights from foreign sources.
As Mars leaves your sign on 4 October, he join the rest of Libra season to bring energy and focus to your finances. This is the perfect time to apply your Virgoan logic to get your ducks in a row around income, assets and investments, especially while Venus remains in this space until 9 October. You may also wish to revisit the value you place on your own skills and experience, which are assets of their own when it comes to earning income. Perhaps time to ask for a raise, or find a new use for your skills that can bring in an extra source of income.
Imaginative thought flows free on 16 October, perhaps bringing some special connection with your partner or adding creative flair to your thinking and writing that day. The end of the month sees a slowdown in Mercury, and then a station to retrograde on 31 October. He is moves backwards that day with a kiss from Venus, with promises of reconciliation bringing courage and healing as he heads into his internal state. You can use the energy of the Scorpio New Moon a few days before to set intentions towards internal understandings to make the most of this transit.
