Your ruling planet Mars remains in your opposite star sign Libra until the end of the month. Relationships are where it’s at. Or, perhaps the opposite and where it’s not at. One way or another, relationships are complex this month.
Firstly, talk planet Mercury is in Libra but retrograde until the 18th. Someone may go quiet on you during this period, plans may change and at times, you could feel powerless.
The New Moon on the 6th takes place in Libra, an indication that you’re not the one in control or in charge this month. Hand over the reins to other people, get other people to take the lead for a change.
Your planet Mars is super triggered on the 8th & 9th whether you’re caught up in an argument or a competitive situation. Alternatively, your energy’s on overdrive and you’ve got hold of the person who can make a huge difference in your life.
If you’re in a long-term relationship or marriage, lean on your other half. Compromise is needed but ask for help and advice when necessary too. It’s not a month when you can go it alone. You need the right people on your side – keep your friends close, your enemies closer still.
Relationships peak around the Full Moon on the 20th which falls in your star sign, Aries. Feelings and emotions are likely to be intense when the Full Moon peaks. A relationship situation could be turned on its head, whether you’re the one cutting ties or someone else acts decisively.
If you’re losing sight of who you are in a close relationship, it’s during the Full Moon in your star sign, Aries, when you can regain control or claw back your independence. This may be due to information you receive once Mercury turns direct on the 18th.

Savvy Money Moves
Scorpio season kicks in early this month as the planet of relating Venus dives deep into the star sign which rules the psyche and all things hidden. Here’s what’s happening in Scorpio:
- Venus (love & relating) until the 7th
- The Sun (essence, ego) from the 23rd
- Mars (action, drive) from the 30th
Scorpio season is your cue to turn your attention to your finances. Scorpio rules all money transactions, such as inheritance, savings & debt, taxes, alimony, investments, payments, etc.
It’s a good time to consider your financial future. If you have surplus money, thanks to an inheritance, gift or bonus, invest it wisely. You may start to see the potential of your money and how you can make a difference out in the world.
Whatever your current plans with regard to money, finances and security, wait until the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd before taking action. This is because communication planet Mercury turns direct on the 18th.
Traditionally, Mercury retrograde is not the time to make major investments or sign or seal an important contract. Instead, wait until later in the month before making a savvy money move.
There could be times when work feels overly intense this month. Power planet Pluto turns direct on the 6th in Capricorn and your career and future sector.
Plus, Capricorn’s planet Saturn turns direct on the 11th in Aquarius, the sign linked to networking and the collective. This could flag issues up with a boss or the authorities, so keep your cards close to your chest and don’t reveal everything.
Big planet Jupiter could represent a key turning point as it switches direction on the 18th, the same day as Mercury turns direct.
This combination is great for hearing news about an educational course or travel. It might be helpful for a legal matter. This is the green light date in October – if you can put off making any big decisions until then, wait and see what news, information or new opportunities come to light.
Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts
Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments until the communication planet is back up to speed on October 18th. Here are some more tips:
- be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
- take a step back, do less not more
- double-check everything, read the small print
- chase up old contacts, revisit the past
- use all the re-words – revise, rework, review, reconsider
- rest & retreat when you can
- do your research ready to act when Mercury turns direct
