Sagittarius October 2019 Horoscope

Social Times

The Libra scales are in evidence this month. For you, this flags up your friendship and group sector. Talk planet, Mercury, is in Libra until the 3rd and Venus, the planet of relating, until the 8th. These are both sociable planet/sign placings which suggests a lively start to the month.

There’s more, however, because the Sun is in Libra until the 23rd and action planet, Mars, enters Libra on the 4th, where it remains until mid-November.

This creates a lot of energy in one of the most social sectors of your horoscope. This fits for you if you’re a typical Sagittarius, because you’re one of the more extrovert signs and you enjoy a wide circle of friends and varied activities.

If you’ve been thinking about joining a club, group or society, it’s an ideal time to do so. If you want to widen your social circle, again put time and energy into your friendships. Also, create friendships that are mutually supportive rather than being a one-way influence.

The Full Moon on the 13th is particularly sociable for you. And, on the same day, there’s a gorgeous Sun-Jupiter planetary connection. Jupiter’s your ruling planet and this creates a feel-good vibe, being around friends who make you feel good and whom you can influence in return. It’s all about networking, connections and positive vibes.

There are a couple of provisos when it comes to these areas of your life. Firstly, Mars can be an argumentative influence so take care that you don’t spend too much time around people who are temperamental or difficult.

Instead, channel Mars’ energy into peace-loving activity as Mars in Libra is a positive Mars for collective and collaborative ventures.

Money Tips

Also, be wary around loaning money or getting involved with a rich crowd, for example. This is because the slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, are currently in Capricorn and your personal money sector.

On the 1st, 7th, 14th and 28th, they clash with key planets in Libra. To keep your money safe, it’s important to put firm boundaries in place. Consider carefully what you get involved in financially and think things through logically and rationally before leaping in.

Pluto is especially powerful throughout October as it turns direct on the 3rd and plays a pivotal role in the Full Moon on the 13th. This means that Pluto never moves far away from 20 degrees Capricorn and its planetary energy is intense. Notice where money’s disappearing in your life and try not to let negativity block the flow of abundance.

This is significant because on the 17th there’s a rare semi-sextile aspect between your planet Jupiter in Sagittarius and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter’s working alongside Pluto bringing its positivity, belief and feel-good vibes to Pluto’s themes of loss, power & control or intensity.

This is a good time to raise your vibe, whatever that means for you. Actively include positive affirmations in your life and don’t allow fear or scarcity to take hold. Jupiter’s influence is there for you, a reminder to trust your luck.

If you’re in tune with your Sagittarius birthright, you know that luck and opportunity work in your favour, sometimes at the 11th hour. However, you need to cultivate a positive attitude and trust in your natural instincts.

Plus, if you are going through a tough time financially with Saturn and Pluto kicking in, know that your planet Jupiter will move into Capricorn and your personal money sector early December. As it remains in one star sign for a year, what you put in place now could pay off royally before long.

Dive In Deep

Also, this month, it’s important to create some time and space for your personal projects. It would be easy only to get involved in what’s going on in the world or in your social life. Yet, there’s a strong influence building in your previous star sign, Scorpio.

The planet ruling the mind, Mercury, is here from the 3rd, followed by Venus, the planet of love and relating from the 8th. Mercury in particular turns your focus inwards. It can be a time of deep thought and analysis, ideal for research and studying.

Know too that Mercury remains in Scorpio until December 9th, as it turns retrograde on October 31st and remains on go slow until November 20th. This Mercury is diving in deep in to the psyche and the hidden places.

You might be exploring the metaphysical realm, be talking to spirits or be on a psychic or spiritual path. You might choose to explore therapy or become a coach or counsellor yourself.

The Sun’s move into Scorpio takes place on the 23rd, followed by a New Moon in Scorpio on the 28th. This would be ideal for taking time out, giving yourself space to reflect deeply. Don’t get so caught up being busy that you lose sight of a deeper sense of purpose, meaning or fulfilment.

Changes At Work

In some way, this is linked to your work or what you do on a daily level. Uranus, the planet of change, is currently in Taurus and your work and health sector. Uranus is active this month on the 7th, 12th and 28th, the day of the New Moon.

This could bring changes to your schedule or a desire to do things differently. Uranus favours freelance work, freedom and space. Listen carefully to your body, your mind and spirit.

Tap in to what’s needed and be vigilant about self care. Also, be there for the ones you love because when planets are in Scorpio, you may be called to step into a caring role.

Love & Patience

Love feels mysterious this month with Venus, the planet of love, diving deep into Scorpio. Sometimes, this flags up an affair or private liaison. Or perhaps, you’re learning a lot about yourself and what you want and need when it comes to love and relationships.

There’s a Mercury/Venus connection on the 30th which could prove insightful. However, with your partner planet, Mercury turning retrograde the following day, the 31st, this isn’t the time to rush love. Instead, favour patience and a soul-mate connection.

Virgo October 2019 Horoscope

Your ruling planet, Mercury, starts a long journey through water sign, Scorpio, on the 3rd. In fact, Mercury remains in Scorpio until December 9th.

Immediately, this tells you that Mercury will soon be entering its next retrograde phase, as it normally whizzes through each sign of the zodiac in a couple of weeks.

Intense Study & Deep Communication

Mercury in Scorpio is about to dive deep into your communication sector. Therefore, this is an ideal month to get your detective hat on, do research, analyse & go in deep, solve a mystery or puzzle.

Mercury rules the mind and this would be a wonderful opportunity to study in-depth, learn something new, teach or pass on your knowledge.

Enjoy the workings of your mind, without it becoming intense or obsessive. This is the flip side of Mercury in Scorpio, a tendency to become too introspective, analytical or critical. Channel this deep and focused Mercury into activities that can grow and flourish and not tire you out or wear you down.

This tips over into your relationships too. The other planet entering Scorpio early in October is Venus, the planet of love and relating. Venus is here from the 8th and Venus is joined by the Sun in Scorpio on the 23rd.

Therefore, when it comes to love and close connections, it’s a good month for some heart-to-hearts. Get to know someone better and ask pertinent questions, however taboo.

This is not the time to leave things unaired. Instead, wrestle with new concepts, be open-minded and willing to embrace new ideas and opinions.

Ready for Anything

For some of you, this could take you into unexplored territory, wherever you find yourself on a journey, either literal or metaphorical. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected, restless and freedom-loving. Uranus is currently in Taurus and your travel and study sector opposing key planets in Scorpio.

You’ll feel Uranus’ pull on the 7th, 12th and 28th, the day of the New Moon in Scorpio. Some plans will change fast in October. Ensure you know where your passport is and that any travel documents are up-to-date.

The alternative is possible, that a trip gets cancelled or postponed. Be ready for anything and tap in to the side of your Virgo nature that can be flexible and adaptable. You’re one of the mutable star signs. Be willing to chop and change your plans when necessary in October.

New Encounters

There is another important reason for good communication this month, the chance to get to know someone new. This could be a romantic encounter and the positive relationship vibes kick in after the 14th, the day after the Full Moon.

Romance peaks for you during the New Moon on the 28th and during a stunning Mercury/Venus encounter two days later on the 30th.

Encourage loved ones to make new friends at this time, especially a child or good friend. Also, encourage other people to be open-minded and tolerant.

You’re likely to come in to contact with people from different cultures or backgrounds and this is where your communication skills will come in useful. You may even decide to learn a new language because of new opportunities opening up.

Most importantly, ensure you have those all-important conversations before the end of the month. Once Mercury is retrograde, misunderstandings and untruths are prevalent.

Connect with other people throughout October and ensure you have a good understanding or insight into anyone who plays a significant role in your life.

Balancing Finances

Money is also under the cosmic spotlight in October and it’s a good time to crack on with new money-making ideas or plans. Your planet Mercury starts the month in Libra and your personal money sector but quickly transitions into Scorpio on the 3rd. Yet, there are other planets in Libra and your personal money sector:

  • Venus (love & relating) until the 8th
  • The Sun (essence, ego) until the 23rd
  • Mars (action/drive) from the 4th onwards

As Libra is the sign of balance, it’s a top month to balance the books and pay attention to your accounts, your earnings and your outgoings. Weigh up what’s of value in your life, consider your self-worth and ensure you’re paid what you deserve.

Also, it’s a month when you might recognise where money is being wasted or disappearing down a black hole. The slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, in Capricorn clash with key planets in Libra on the following dates, the 1st, 7th, 14th & 27th. This can throw up an impediment to the flow of money, so consider what this means for you.

You might choose to stop an outgoing payment if you’re not getting your money’s worth. Or perhaps, you recognise there are other ways to help people close to you, a child or lover perhaps, rather than doling out money.

Money Issues Peak

Money issues peak during the Full Moon on the 13th, which pulls in power planet Pluto. Full Moons are often a time of heightened emotions and this Full Moon feels decisive, a time when you see a situation with clarity.

Let go of an old habit, ring the changes and do things differently. This may also include setting someone free.

The planet of abundance, Jupiter, remains in Sagittarius and your home and family sector this month. Jupiter’s working in your favour, especially on or around the Full Moon.

Invest wisely during this period, look after the ones you love and make good money moves. This might include a property deal or changing your living arrangements to benefit everyone financially.

You might have some big decisions to make mid-month. Do what feels right even if it means experiencing short-term pain in exchange for long-term gain.

Scorpio October 2019 Horoscope

Down Time & Self Care

It’s an intriguing month ahead for you, Scorpio, when you’re wise to balance your commitments carefully. Ideally, have one foot out in the world and the other foot firmly placed at home or wherever you find quiet or solitude.

Traditionally, Scorpio season begins on the 23rd, when the Sun moves into your star sign. Up until then, the Sun is hidden away in your horoscope in the star sign, Libra. This year, the Sun is joined by your ruling planet, Mars, which enters Libra on the 4th and leaves on November 19th.

Mars in Libra doesn’t want to be out in the world. Instead, the focus is on your inner life, when you need more time and space to be quiet and reflective. This Mars is peace-loving and passive rather than aggressive.

Take care that you don’t channel any dissatisfaction inwards. Work actively on your inner state, whether you meditate, do yoga or follow a spiritual teaching. Learn how to keep your inner voice calm and use this period wisely for self-reflection.

Sometimes, when there are key planets in Libra, you need to be vigilant about self-care. Or perhaps, you’re caring for someone else in your life. Libra is, after all, the sign of relating.

Even though you may choose to spend more time on your own this month, ensure there are people in your life who can support and advise you. Talk to a friend, a counsellor or coach or, if you’re a believer, talk to God.

Pluto’s Role – Good Time Management

This is important because the key planets in Libra this month clash with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your communication sector. The key dates are the 1st, 7th, 14th and 27th. Plus, your co-ruler, Pluto, turns direct on the 3rd. Therefore, it hardly moves at all this month remaining at 20 degrees Capricorn throughout October.

This means that Pluto’s planetary energy is intense, powerful, focused. This can be extremely helpful for studying, research work, analysis and strategising.

Pluto’s laser focus in your communication sector helps you stay on track with what you want to achieve. Another reason perhaps why you need more time to yourself to study, learn or teach.

It is important, however, that you don’t allow negative emotions or critics to get to you. Saturn and Pluto can be harsh taskmasters, pessimistic rather than uplifting.

Consider carefully what you read or listen to in the month ahead. If the news is depressing you, for example, switch off. If there’s someone in your life who moans incessantly, put boundaries in place so you’re able to keep your distance.

Also, think about how you’re spending your time. It’s here where Libra’s scales can be valuable for you, considering how you balance the hours in your day. If you spend too much time on social media, for example, get firm with yourself and create new plans and strategies to help your productivity and well-being.

If you’re on a long commute or daily trip, again consider how you might use your time well. For example, listen to podcasts or audio books. This is an important month to think about the information you’re receiving and to use your time wisely. This could also benefit you financially.

The Full Moon on the 13th is a peak time in this respect. As Pluto’s involved, you may be closing the door on a job or investment that’s not paying well. Realign your purpose with projects and plans that are meaningful, fulfilling and promise abundance.

The Focus Is On You

Plus, this month, the focus is on you for a great part of October. This is because Mercury, the communication planet, enters your star sign, Scorpio, on the 3rd, followed by Venus, the planet of love and relating, on the 8th. Mercury in your star sign is great for heart-to-hearts, insight, deep analysis and communication.

You might step in to the role of counsellor, coach or good friend more than usual. Hone your psychic skills and play to your strengths. Your star sign represents deep emotion and you’re often able to see things that other people can’t. Add to this courage to venture into unknown territory and it’s a peak time for new explorations and bold ventures.

Also, set new plans and ideas in motion sooner rather than later. The Sun enters your star sign, Scorpio, on the 23rd followed five days later by a stunning New Moon in your Scorpio on the 28th, a symbol of new beginnings.

This is your personal New Year, a chance to stop and reflect on what’s been and gone, reset your compass accordingly and set new intentions in place.

This New Moon takes place three days before Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio. In fact, the planet ruling communication and the mind will be in your star sign until December 9th.

From October 31st until November 20th, Mercury’s retrograde phase, you’ll be going deeper still. If this coincides with you taking some time out, you’re in tune with your stars. And, make your important moves before the last day of October.

Balancing Love

Love is also intriguing during October with Venus in your star sign from the 8th onwards. This Venus is seductive, passionate and potentially transformational. Also, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, are in each other’s star sign from the 8th onwards; Venus in Scorpio & Mars in Libra.

In astrology, this is called mutual reception and it suggests that working together with a key person in your life creates strength in the partnership. You complement each other by trading your skills or taking it in turns to be supportive and to uphold the other.

It’s likely to be a month when you’re seeking love and connection. Key dates for romance are the 15th and 21st when Neptune wafts her magic. Also, the 30th, when there’s a Mercury/Venus connection.

And, with Uranus, the planet of spontaneity, currently in Taurus and your relationship sector, there’s an ‘anything goes’ feel about love and relationships. Uranus is strong on the 7th, 12th and 28th, the day of the New Moon.

When Uranus is active, events often happen fast and out of the blue. It’s a good time to break away from a relationship that’s not working for you. Uranus rules freedom and independence, so these may be themes that are prevalent in your 1-to-1’s. It’s an ideal time to ring the changes in love, to set someone free and/or spice up your love life.

Reach out to others this month, especially if you’re spending a lot of time on your own. Alternatively, if you have little space to reflect and be quiet, then create time for this in your life. It’s in your personal space where balance is needed. Learn from Libra’s scales and honour Scorpio’s need for connection on a deep level.

Leo October 2019 Horoscope

Making Connections

Your ruler, the Sun, is in the sign of balance, Libra, until the 23rd. Libra is one of the lively air signs so you can expect a lively time. You may be constantly seeking balance in the first three weeks of October.

This is great for communication and all things marketing, sales or gossipy. The air signs rule the networks, so connect with other people, make new friends and reach out. Wherever you want to extend your circle, use your voice, either personally or professionally.

New Work Rules

In fact, you may be itching to do something new this month for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Uranus, the planet of change, is in Taurus and your career and vocation sector.

Uranus is volatile and restless, more suited to freelance work or self-employment than the 9-to-5. Uranus’ planetary energy kicks in on the 7th, 12th and 28th.

Plus, you have two of the slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, in Capricorn and your work and routine sector. These two planets have been in this part of your horoscope for some time. Work may feel relentless because of this. Or perhaps, you’re currently unemployed or out of work.

Usually, where Pluto is concerned, it’s a case of all or nothing. Pluto, is intense this month as it turns direct on the 3rd. This means Pluto never leaves 20 degrees Capricorn throughout October.

There are key dates when you may encounter problems or issues at work. The Sun, your ruler, clashes with Saturn on the 7th and Pluto on the 14th, the day after the Full Moon on the 13th. Saturn and Pluto are also strong on the 1st and 27th.

Put all this together, and it’s important to get real about work, your health and lifestyle. Notice what’s stopping you leading the life you choose or who or what is getting in the way. For some of you, this might be a time when you want to put a job on hold or end a permanent contract.

An Adventurous Full Moon

The Full Moon on the 13th highlights the star sign, Aries, and your travel and study sector. If you’re feeling bored with your current routine or situation, the Full Moon could stoke the fires of adventure.

Plus, Uranus is an impulsive influence and active on the day of the New Moon on the 28th. Therefore, both lunations this month may prove dramatic.

Home & Family Negotiations

Also, events at home or within your family play their part. Communication planet, Mercury, enters Scorpio and this sector of your horoscope on the 3rd followed by Venus, the planet of relating on the 8th.

Come the last week of October and your ruler, the Sun, also graces Scorpio from the 23rd onwards.

This means there’s likely to be a lot happening at home, whether there are more negotiations, meetings or get-togethers than usual. Or perhaps, you’re considering living somewhere new or changing around your living arrangements or surroundings.

Scorpio is a deep and intense star sign, so expect some real heart-to-hearts this month with family members. If someone has a particular issue or problem, aim to sort things out and find a solution or resolution sooner rather than later.

This has a lot to do with the fact that Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on October 31st and remains on go slow until November 20th.

Once Mercury’s in retreat, it’s harder to get things sorted and it’s not an ideal time to sign or seal a contract or make a major home or family-related decision.

Therefore, use the Scorpio energy throughout October and don your detective hat to find answers to your questions. This may be linked to your work and health or a similar situation for a family member.

Money too is in the mix and you need to work alongside your family to pool resources and share what you own. This works both ways – it can help your personal situation or you might be the one stepping in to lead the way.

Even though the New Moon in Scorpio on the 28th falls only a few days before Mercury’s change in direction, it’s still lively for new beginnings. Notice who reaches out to you on or around the 28th and which people you can rely on the most.

Social Vibes

If things do become too intense or introspective throughout October, then tap into the Libra planetary vibe which is strong throughout the month.

Mercury dips into Libra until the 3rd, but Lady Love, Venus, is in Libra until the 8th and action planet, Mars, enters Libra on the 4th where it remains until mid-November.

This is about support in your community, being social and having a good network of friends around you. It’s not just about support and advice, however, it’s about having fun.

If you want to meet someone new, reach out while Venus is in Libra. Plus, the day after the Full Moon on the 14th, there’s a gorgeous Sun-Jupiter connection and Jupiter is in Sagittarius and your romance sector.

Therefore, work your connections and create closeness in your personal relationships. Be around people who make you laugh and lift your spirits.

There will be times throughout October when you have to dig deep in your close relationships, especially with the person who plays devil’s advocate or the person who insists on arguing every point.

Balance is needed in your close relationships, which means finding lightness in love and friendship, to balance out any troubling or testing connections, whether personal or professional.

Libra October 2019 Horoscope

Your Time

The month of October is happy birthday time for many of you. The Sun shines down on your star sign Libra until the 23rd and the Sun is not the only planetary body in Libra. Here’s the pattern:

  • Mercury (communication) until the 3rd
  • Venus (your ruling planet) until the 8th
  • Mars (action/drive) from the 4th onwards

When you have planets in your star sign, the focus is on you. It’s an ideal time in the year to consider your personal goals and aims, where you’re heading and why. This is the mid-point through the zodiacal year, six months since the Sun entered Aries on March 20th.

Therefore, consider how far you’ve come, what you’ve achieved and what you’re ready to let go of. Think of October as a key month to balance those Libra scales, so you feel more in harmony and in flow with life rather than constantly battling or taking on too much.

If you’re a typical Libra, you’re sociable and friendly and sometimes you find it hard to say No to invitations or requests. With so many planets vying for attention in your star sign this month, you would expect your social circle to widen even further. Therefore, take good care of yourself and prioritise your needs, especially if your life is busy.

Love & Teamwork

It’s an intriguing month for love too. It’s always lovely to have Venus, the planet of love and relating, in your star sign. She’s here until the 8th so make the most of this, although as you’ll hear later, it’s an intense start to the month.

Plus, Mars not only rules ambition and drive but passion and libido too. Therefore, with Mars in Libra from the 4th until November 19th, you’re entering in to a passionate phase in the year.

Also, once Venus leaves Libra on the 8th, she enters Scorpio, one of the star signs ruled by Mars. And, Mars is in your star sign until the end of October. Therefore, these two planets, the lovers of the heavens, are in mutual reception. This means that on their own, they aren’t particularly strong. Yet, when they work together, they complement each other and make a great team.

Consider what this means for you with regard to your love life, your close partnerships. This combination favours collaboration and support. In a good relationship or partnership, one person steps in so you can lean on them and they hold you strong. One of you may be more vulnerable or in need of help during this period.

Letting Go & Moving On

The Full Moon is the pivotal moment in the month for your 1-to-1’s as it cuts across the Libra/Aries axis of the zodiac. Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened. This Full Moon feels particularly potent as it pulls in power planet, Pluto.

Therefore, there’s a theme of endings this month, saying goodbye to the past, letting go of a situation that’s no longer viable or isn’t working out. Pluto is strong this month. It clashes with your ruler Venus on the 1st and turns direct on the 3rd. In fact, Pluto never leaves 20 degrees Capricorn all month – it’s fixated on this part of the horoscope.

You might be parted from a loved one this month or find yourself in a new situation which requires reassessment, a shift in perspective. Love and money are also linked and money is a big theme for you throughout October.

The Capricorn planets, Pluto and Saturn, have been at the base of your horoscope for some time now. Saturn is in action this month on the 7th and 28th, clashing with key planets in your star sign, Libra. This may flag up an issue with a parent. Or perhaps, the end of a significant chapter in your own life.

Certainly, with so much emphasis on your star sign, Libra, you may realise that what you want is different to what other people want or need. Mars in your star sign brings you courage to make the decisions and moves that are right for you.

Money Moves

This is potentially an ambitious time of year, especially if you’re starting a new job, project or course. Big planet, Jupiter, is currently in Sagittarius which favours knowledge, learning and new experiences.

Jupiter kicks in mid-month on the 14th suggesting that the Full Moon will be pivotal for you. Ride your luck during this period and keep your gaze firmly focused on your future path.

Money also requires careful handling. Talk planet, Mercury, enters Scorpio on the 3rd followed by your planet, Venus, on the 8th. This is your personal money sector. Plus, you have Uranus, the unpredictable planet, in Taurus and your joint finance sector opposing Mercury on the 7th and Venus on the 12th.

This flags up a new wave for your finances and it’s important to keep up-to-date with new trends and keep close tabs on your money, especially online. Come the 23rd, the Sun enters Scorpio and there’s a stunning New Moon in Scorpio on the 28th. Uranus plays a key role once again.

Consider how you can break free from financial ties that bind you. Think about how you can pursue new money-making options that allow you to be independent. It’s a good month to balance the books and channel your energy and focus into finances. Get the right advice when Mercury and Venus unite on the 30th.

This is also important because Mercury turns retrograde on October 31st in Scorpio and remains on go slow until November 20th. Therefore, make your money moves sooner rather than later and don’t put off learning more or getting on top of your finances. Mercury retrograde is rarely a good time to make a major investment or sign or seal a deal.

Leap into action and use Uranus’ spontaneous energy to get you fired up. The period from the 20th to the 25th is gorgeous for playing your money cards well to bring you more security. This is linked to your home and family, your work and everyday routine.

Cancer October 2019 Horoscope

Home & Family Matters

The Sun is in Libra until the 23rd and the sector of your horoscope that rules your home and family.   Therefore, this is where you’re wise to seek balance, peace and harmony.

If you’re a typical Sun Cancer, you need somewhere in life you can retreat to, a place of comfort and nurture. There are other planets in Libra this month too. Here’s the pattern:

  • Mercury (communication) until the 3rd
  • Venus (love & relating) until the 8th
  • Mars (action/drive) from the 4th onwards

Therefore, crack on with any key negotiations early in the month, check up on family or have that long-awaited phone call. Once Mars moves into Libra, there’s a livelier vibe.

Mars is a great influence if you’re moving home or involved in building work or DIY. You can get things done, even if it does mean that your immediate environment will be noisier than usual.

Mars in Libra seeks peace but it doesn’t always come easily for the warrior planet. This could flag up arguments or irritations with family members. Or perhaps, you need to step in fast to help out someone close or vice versa.

Intense Relationships

Relationships have been under challenging stars in your horoscope for some time now. That doesn’t mean to say you can’t be in a committed loving relationship but there is an all-or-nothing feel about love.

This is because of the slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, in Capricorn and your relationship sector.

These two planets clash with the inner planets in Libra on the following dates, the 1st, 7th, 14th and 27th. Plus, Pluto turns direct on the 3rd and never moves away from 20 degrees Capricorn throughout October.

So, there’s intensity in your 1-to-1’s and it’s not a month to try and sweep things under the carpet.

The Full Moon on the 13th cuts across the foundations of your horoscope and pulls in power planet, Pluto. This whole combination could bring matters to a head.

Emotions run high during a Full Moon and you often seen your situation clearly. It could be up to you to put your foot down and say ‘enough is enough’. Or perhaps, there’s drama involving someone else to close you.

For some of you, this is a month when you fall head-over-heels in love which is great, but… there seems to be a proviso, whether it means someone in your family isn’t happy about the relationship or it consumes you completely, which is gorgeous but exhausting at the same time.

Love & Romance

This is because of inner planets moving into Scorpio and your romance sector and Scorpio is Pluto’s domain. Scorpio rules deep emotions whether you’re examining your own psyche or you need to be a counsellor, therapist or analyst for someone close. Here’s the pattern:

  • Mercury enters Scorpio – 3rd
  • Venus enters Scorpio – 8th
  • Sun enters Scorpio – 23rd
  • New Moon in Scorpio – 28th

These planetary shifts can bring a soul-mate connection your way, especially as Venus, the planet of love is in Scorpio for most of the month, from the 8th onwards. New romance could flourish quickly, whether in your own life or for your child, an ex or past lover.

Either way, there’s going to be a lot of strong emotion around during October and you’re going to be feeling it. There will be some wins, perhaps news of a birth or pregnancy or a creative project that goes well.

Scorpio rules entertainment and luck. Therefore, trust your natural intuition if you’re choosing lottery numbers or entering a competition.

Plus, there’s a suggestion this month that you’re being called forth to make up your mind about love. Consider who in your life needs more of you or needs you to be there for them.

Some relationships will flourish, especially when you focus on the future together and dream up new travel or adventure plans. The period from the 20th to the 25th looks especially romantic and great for firm commitments.

Also, the New Moon on the 28th is exciting, two days before a Mercury/Venus conjunction in Scorpio. Notice who comes in to your life at the end of the month as this could be the start of a passionate liaison.

Craving Freedom

As promising as some of your astrology sounds, there will be times when you crave more freedom or want to take a step back. Uranus in Taurus opposes key planets in Scorpio on the 7th, 12th and 28th, the day of the New Moon.

This feels unpredictable as Uranus is the planet of change. Take care that you’re not the one constantly changing your mind or changing what you want.

Taurus rules your friendship and group sector so there could be an issue here, whether you’ve fallen for someone who’s unavailable or you have someone in your life who can’t keep away from you.

When Uranus is strong, sometimes there’s a theme of not fitting in, whether this is an issue for yourself, a child or a lover.

Yet, this adds to the exciting theme in the month ahead. Work could be background rather than foreground while your personal life dominates. Note that Mercury turns retrograde on the last day of October and remains on go slow from October 31st to November 20th.

This indicates diving in deeper but venturing into unknown territory. Therefore, sort things out in love, with a child or on a personal level before the end of the month. There’s much to be gained from October’s stars, as long as you engage fully with your up-close and personal relationships.

Gemini October 2019 Horoscope

Play & New Love

It’s important this month to remember that this is Libra season, even if your ruling planet, Mercury, only dips its toe in Libra up until the 3rd. Libra is an air sign, the same element as your star sign, Gemini. You need people in your life and all air signs require activities or work that stimulate your lively mind.

Plus, Libra rules a great sector of your horoscope. It’s about play rather than work and the things you enjoy doing, the people you enjoy being with. This includes lovers as well as children, creative projects, entertainment and social activities.

There’s a lucky vibe to Libra, a time when you want to maximise your potential and believe that anything’s possible.

Even though your planet Mercury dives out of Libra early this month, the Sun is here until the 23rd and action planet, Mars, enters Libra on the 4th where it remains until mid-November.

Make the most of this and ensure you have a healthy work/life balance and you prioritise the good things in life, whatever makes you happy.

Plus, if you are in love or looking for love, Libra season can be wonderfully romantic for you. Venus, the planet of love and relating, is in Libra until the 8th.

Mars rules passion and the Sun in Libra teams up with Jupiter in Sagittarius and your relationship sector on the 13th, the day of the Full Moon.

Put all this together and there’s potential for passion, love and romance in your horoscope. Here too, you’re wise to channel your energy and focus and make the most of your 1-to-1’s.

Money Decisions

You do still need to keep a close eye on money matters this month – key dates are the 1st, 3rd, 7th, 14th and 27th. This is perhaps nothing new as you have the tough planets, Saturn and Pluto, currently moving through Capricorn and your joint finance sector.

This month could feel intense if you’re dealing with a money issue, because Pluto turns direct on the 3rd and rarely moves at all throughout October. In fact, it remains at 20 degrees Capricorn. Ideally, try to remove yourself from any situation where other people have control of your money.

Also, be realistic when it comes to your own outgoings or expenses. If you recognise a drain on your finances, perhaps because of a loan or wanting to help out someone close, be vigilant.

Decide whether saying No is actually the best medicine. Certainly, this isn’t a good month to ignore a debt situation or keep paying out a regular amount of money that’s not bringing a good investment.

It’s the Full Moon which is pivotal in this respect on the 13th as Pluto is caught up in the emotional charge. During the Full Moon, emotions run high but you often see your situation clearly. Put firm boundaries in place around money and/or choose to work hard.

Work Goals

Work is a key feature of the month ahead because of what’s happening with your planet, Mercury. Mercury enters Scorpio and one of the work sectors of your horoscope on the 3rd and it won’t leave this sector until December 9th.

Immediately, this tells you that Mercury is about to enter its next retrograde phase. On October 31st, Mercury switches direction and remains retrograde or on go slow until November 20th.

Therefore, when it comes to your work, your lifestyle and health, crack on with new plans and put new habits in place sooner rather than later.

Once Mercury is retrograde, you can find that your plans change suddenly and it’s not the ideal time to start anything new. The other planets moving through Scorpio this month are:

  • Venus (love & relating) from the 8th
  • The Sun (essence, ego) from the 23rd.

Changing Direction

Plus, there’s a New Moon in Scorpio on the 28th, only a few days before Mercury’s change of direction. This New Moon is lively as it falls close to a Mercury/Venus conjunction on the 30th. And, Uranus opposes the Sun on the day of the New Moon.

This means choose your alliances, your allies carefully. Team work is essential in your working life in the month ahead, also getting the right team on your side to boost your health or fitness. Uranus in Taurus can bring the unexpected.

Therefore, there may be events which take place that make you feel the Mercury retrograde phase is kicking in early. Uranus is a key signature on the 7th and 12th as well as the 28th.

For some of you, this could mean a change of job or a realisation that it’s time to do things differently. If work or a lack of work is proving stressful, focus on your well-being and take good care of yourself. Learn to delegate well and lean on a partner, whether personal or professional.

Hard Work Brings Reward

Work and money are linked in your horoscope and you could realise that a period of hard work will help you out of a tight financial spot. If you know that getting your head down for a couple of months ticks a lot of boxes, then do i.

At its best Mercury in Scorpio helps you to focus, concentrate and get on with the job at hand. You might be busy but raking it in financially – one good reason to prioritise work and boost your reputation or status in the process.

If you’re a Gemini with a plan, October’s a great month to set your plan in action, especially if the results will prove successful for your health, fitness, work or routine.
