October Horoscopes for the month - Natalie Delahaye - Professional Astrology Surrey UK
Your forte is your decisiveness; you have a talent for making instant intuitive decisions for both yourself and others. This month you’re slowing down, standing back and gaining a perspective before making important moves that affect loved ones. Take advantage of the stunning alignment of planets in the partnership area. This is all about working one to one with someone, drawing on diplomacy and fairness to enhance partnerships. You’ve been working impressively hard on relationships over the last year or so and it appears to be paying off, which is apparent at the full moon on 12th October. The new moon on 26th brings a deepening of bonds and commitment. Perhaps a marriage is on the cards.
You have responsibilities to rebalance your health and work routines; pay those bills, update your accounts and de-tox your body after all that rich food, partying and your sporadic exercise regime. You’ll feel so much more elevated on a mind, body, spirit level after you’ve accomplished this and your relationships will be more prosperous. Venus, your ruling planet is focussing her attention on bringing love, happiness, ease health, beauty and balance in your life. As a Venus ruled sign you live and breathe these things. There is more to breathe into your life right now as Venus resides in her natural home and from 9th October, blesses your life with love and romance.
Your thoughts are at a creative peak; what once seemed to be a mere vision has the chance of being integrated into your everyday life from 12th October when your ruling planet Mercury moves into a more practical, grounded arena. Let those stick in the mud folks think you’re being crazily unrealistic; you’ll soon prove them wrong. Mentally, with Mercury in airy Libra, you are in your element in terms of fluid, flowing ideas. Children, lovers and creativity are a source of invigoration for you this month. You are recharging mentally after let’s face it, a bit of a crazy time as of late. Enjoy, have much fun and pin down all these original, genius ideas that are circulating around you.
The demands of home and family are still a source of concern, as are those unresolved issues that are causing friction with a partner, especially around the full moon on 12th October, when you feel torn by the needs of too many people. Despite the challenges, there is a multitude of joy and pleasure available to be had at home with your family. If you feel you’ve been neglecting your play time, the new moon on 26th is a time to change that. You are nurturing a family or property matter, it may be at an embryonic stage right now but it may well attract some unexpected recognition, or at least reach a level of culmination around the 12th October. If you can balance your ever changing Cancerian moods you will make great waves through negotiation and careful planning this October.
Your world is brimming with communication right now; written, verbal and maybe for the more psychic Leo, telepathy. Mars in your sign brings a new lease of drive, energy and passion into your being. Sparks fly and carrying out new ideas should be easy, particularly while the Sun shines in your communication house until 23 October. A partnership is highlighted. For single Leo’s, what started off as a meeting of minds, perhaps brotherly, sisterly love could turn out to be more than you dreamed of. The full moon on12 October, occurring in an adventurous zone of your chart sees you in the mood for change, expansion and travel. Maybe a person from another land comes into your life. The new moon on26 turns your attention to matters of the home, the heart and perhaps an interest in your family tree.
You’re closely scrutinising your values, with regard to what feels right at the core of your value system. You have to be true to your desires to improve, whether these happen to be relationship orientated or material. The importance of certain possessions, or the insignificance of others, may spur you on to autumn clearing and letting go of what’s cluttering your space. The ritual of de-cluttering has not only a physical effect but a mentally and spiritually clearing one, although I probably don’t need to remind you of this dear Virgo. This month brings matters of personal as well as joint ownership to a head by the full moon on October 12.
Venus is in her superior position and natural residence in Libra. The Goddess Venus smoothes, refines and lightens up what she touches. It is a delight to have Venus back by your side once more after the weight of Saturn the taskmaster has been hurling challenges, responsibilities and tests left, right and centre. Saturn’s rings of lessons are essential to our karma, our maturity and commitment and will be staying in your sign for another year, cementing, shaking foundations and re defining in terms of your relationships. You have grown up lots during this time, your outlook has matured and your sense of responsibility is greater. Prosperous relationships are forecasted this month. If single this could indicate the meeting of a significant person, whilst if married, bonds will deepen talent. You really are a shining example of how one can bring grace, diplomacy, harmony and balance into all aspects of life to encourage these elevated Venusian qualities in others. When the full moon on the 12th falls in your relationship house, you express your talents and gifts to relate perfectly.
After a period of chasing your tail and quite frankly getting dizzy from all that whirling, you have shaken off a skin and proceed to move forward, with a clearer, more empowered sense of purpose, thanks to your ruling Planet Pluto turning direct once more. The cycle of death and rebirth, which being a Scorpion is a natural, essential part of your life; new chapters replacing old ones, transformations following old cycles and one door closing while another opens. This is astrologically your new year, when Venus, followed by mercury and the Sun enter your sign once more. Relationships lead to a deepening of bonds and commitments with Venus bringing a renewal of passion and romance into your world.
You’re contemplative and meditative this month. As far as moving onto the next adventure, you’re needing to hold your horses and review whether your career continues to inspire you and offer you the breadth of mental and physical scope that is essential to your Sagittarian nature. With the full moon on 26 in your area of meditation, you will be reflecting on how far you’ve come recently. Likeminded friends and the deepening of bonds is forecasted. The full moon in Aries on 12th in your solar house of fun, revamps any recent lack of.
Your public image is calling for more sweetness, charm and softness; there is a need to refine it, while Venus cosies up to your ruling planet Saturn in your public house of image. You don’t have to lose control or authority by presenting a lighter image. Just visualise the Libran image of an iron fist in a velvet sleeve and you’ll get a picture of how a more subtle way of control can work wonders. Relationships with colleagues and sharing with like-minded friends, who have your best interests at heart, mean a lot to you this month.
If you’re a typical Aquarius then you look ahead to new things constantly. You feel a need to expand your studies, learn something new and have more space to grow. Learning, foreign cultures and escaping from the mundane will be a focus point for the first half of October. If single you may well meet an exotic person who will have an inspirational, life changing effect. With mars residing in your partnership house, expect fiery, passionate conversations but also strange, irritable reactions from strangers. Your career receives a boost as planets line up in your work sector and you have an unexpected work opportunity that very much appeals to you.
This month begins with about a need to sort out a contract or negotiation regarding joint resources. Try to avoid any disagreements and tendencies towards possessiveness or holding on, with Venus sprinkling impartiality onto your path, this is certainly unlikely. As inner planets move to Scorpio, the sign of metamorphoses, you will not escape the drive to regenerate those stagnant waters. With a cluster of planets in your sector of mental and physical travel, it is quite possible that you will be planning an overseas travel or embarking on a new job or training course that feeds you new found philosophies.
