Your planet Jupiter is in one of the most helpful and supportive planetary aspects this month. Jupiter in Capricorn and your personal money sector aligns with Neptune in Pisces and your home and family sector on the 12th.
This alliance between these two boundless and creative planets began in February 2020. They reconnected in July 2020 and this is their third and final connection.
Basically, it’s where you find hope and faith in life. You may receive a gift or great advice. A property deal completes or there’s reason to celebrate with your family. In the midst of some tricky astrology in October, it’s important to cheer the wins.
Full & New Moons
On the whole, however, this could turn out to be an emotional month. There are two Full Moons on the 1st and 31st and a New Moon in social Libra on the 16th. Libra rules friendships and group activities in your horoscope and it’s here where there’s lively astrology.
Be wary of what you promise and try not to get overly involved in disputes or conflict. You will want to help others where possible but keep your money in your pocket and choose your battles wisely.
Know too that this is a month when delays and frustrations are inevitable as two of the inner planets are on go slow. Firstly, action planet Mars is in retreat in fire sign Aries.
Mars in Aries wants to play and have fun but when it’s retrograde, things don’t always work out. The trickiest dates for Mars are the 9th, 13th and 19th.
Keep close tabs on children and lovers during this phase as these are the people highlighted in your life with Mars in reverse mode in Aries. It’s a month when you may have to react and respond quickly.
As one of the spontaneous fire signs, this is how you like to live your life. You don’t appreciate it when you’re told what you can and can’t do.
The other planet retrograde this month is Mercury, the communication planet. Mercury is in Scorpio and the most hidden sector of your horoscope for most of the month until the 28th. And, Mercury turns retrograde on the 14th.
This is about rest and retreat for you and creating time away from the hustle and bustle of life. Take time out so you can be quiet and listen to your inner voice, your intuition.
There might be a specific reason why you need to slow things down, perhaps due to ill-health or the fact that you’re caring for someone close.
This is an important month to listen to your dreams as they can provide you with key insights and understanding. The Sun/Mercury conjunction on the 25th may lead to revelation or awakening. This could be in a spiritual context or something which helps you learn more about yourself.
The theme of second chances is strong during this period and it’s a time when you may feel more closely connected to your karma and what’s gone before.
Certainly, there’s a sense that what you give you receive in return. Notice who steps forward to help you and see where you feel pulled. Whom do you want to help or serve and why?
A Lively Full Moon
Changes at work or within your own routine could come thick and fast this month too. Uranus, the planet of unpredictability, is lively on the 7th, 20th and 31st, the day of the second Full Moon in October, a Blue Moon.
These are good dates to start something new. October requires adaptability and flexibility. It’s a month when life really does have other plans.
