New Moon Libra: Under Pressure

Moon

New Moon [13 Libra 25]

– October 6, 2021 (12:05 GMT+1)

This week, there’s a New Moon in the sign of balance, Libra. Usually during a New Moon in Libra, there’s a striving for peace and calm and a New Moon is a chance for new beginnings. This New Moon feels different, however, because of what else is happening during the New Moon phase.

Pluto Power

Pluto turns direct [24 Capricorn 18]

– October 6, 2021 (19:29 GMT+1)

Firstly, on the same day as the New Moon, the planet of power, Pluto, turns direct at 24 Libra. One of Pluto’s symbols is death as in mythology Pluto was Hades, God of the Underworld. When the slower-moving planets change direction, you often feel the intensity of the planet’s symbolism.

In astrology, Pluto represents loss and transformation and is a symbol of hidden riches, what can be excavated and unearthed. The depths of the earth reveal hidden treasures including jewels, diamonds, oil – valuable, even priceless items. (update: the Pandora Papers has broken with Pluto turning direct – perfect timing – Pluto rules power, wealth, big money – think plutocrats, it’s in the name! The best side of Pluto is exposing corruption).

On an inner level, through experiencing the dark side of life via sorrow, loss and struggle and other difficult challenges, we often feel most fully. Anyone who’s lost a loved one and come together with family to mourn them has probably experienced profound emotions that connect you both with love as well as loss.

Pluto’s change of direction may be intense. Or, there might be hidden nuggets of gold that have been shaped and perfected over the last five months that you can now bring forth from the dark and use them to guide you and illuminate the path ahead.

This New Moon’s new beginnings could spring out of an ending or something forced upon you with Pluto in tow. It’s a symbol for rising up against oppression, rage & control. There’s plenty going on around the world that is showing us the flip side of aggression & power which must be stopped if women in particular are to be safe & upheld.

Mars & Mercury

During the New Moon, the Sun & Moon aren’t on their own. They sit next to action planet Mars and communication planet Mercury, currently retrograde. Here’s the pattern of Sun, Mars & Mercury:

  • Sun conjunct Mars Libra – October 8, 2021 (05:01 GMT+1)
  • Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde Libra – October 9, 2021 (17:18 GMT+1)
  • Mercury retrograde conjunct Mars Libra – October 9, 2021 (23:48 GMT+1)

The line up of Sun-Mars-Mercury retrograde on Friday 8th & Saturday 9th is punchy & quick. It’s an intriguing combination. Traditionally, a Sun/Mars conjunction promises speed, anger & decisive moves.

However, the Sun is in fall in Libra and Mars is in detriment, i.e. it’s not an easy star sign for either planetary body. Both the Sun & Mars are ego-oriented while Libra wants to take other people’s opinions into account. ​​​​​​​

There could be an opportunity to fight for your rights, take action swiftly, cut through to the heart of the matter, defend others. This may be a decisive turning point in a legal or financial matter.

Also pulled into the mix is communication planet Mercury. The Sun/Mercury retrograde conjunction sprinkles a little magic on Saturday 9th as Mercury gains clarity from the Sun’s sage advice.  It’s called a cazimi moment in astrology when the Sun’s warmth, vitality & energy can bring insight or revelation sitting tightly next to another planet.

It will be interesting to see how this fast-paced astrology during a retrograde phase plays out. My feeling is that there will be some wins if you act quickly and you’re strong in your actions. There’s no point beating around the bush, leap to it and take advantage of a new situation.

As the Sun is in Libra, it’s important to note who you might be up against or in conflict with. It could be a tricky week for partnership or finding out who your enemies are. The Sun in Libra reminds us that kindness & tolerance are worthy goals.

Hold on to the thought that some things need to break down before they can be rebuilt. In your life, focus more on what you love and less on what you hate. If you’re feeling under pressure this week, take each day one step at a time.

Here are the areas of your life that Libra rules. For your personal guide, check out your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign:

  • Aries – love & relationships
  • Taurus – job & health
  • Gemini – new birth i.e. kids, love, creative project
  • Cancer – home & family
  • Leo – local community & ideas
  • Virgo – money & values
  • Libra – personal goals & self image
  • Scorpio – retreat & secrets
  • Sagittarius – friends & wider society
  • Capricorn – career & status
  • Aquarius – travel, study & deeper meaning
  • Pisces – shared finances & resources

Make a wish when you first see the crescent Moon towards the end of the week.

May it bring you guidance & hope.

Money & All Things Hidden

There’s conflicting planetary activity currently taking place in the star sign Libra. This is one of the hidden sectors of your horoscope. On the one hand, it’s linked to money matters, especially joint finances but it’s also about the metaphysical realm, all things taboo and hidden. Here’s the planetary picture in Libra this month:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

Straightaway, you see that this is a month to be ambitious and assertive when it comes to money matters. This is where Mars comes in, the planet of action and drive. Mars is a forceful planetary energy and you might be caught up fighting for your rights. Or, be in a situation where you’re trying to share money fairly.

The key time in the month for Mars is during the New Moon on the 6th, a symbol of new beginnings. Mars is particularly lively on the 8th & 9th. This could be a time when you’re pushing for what you want. Or, you might be caught up in a competitive situation or an argument about money, sex, power or another taboo issue.

If you want your needs met, you might have to take a strong stance yourself, which doesn’t always come naturally to you as a Pisces. Use the timing of your astrology well and don’t commit to anything if you don’t want to until after the 18th.

This is a significant date for you as it’s when Mercury turns direct and this can often bring new information to light. Or, the money you were waiting on materialises.

Also, your ruling planet Jupiter turns direct on the same day and this could feel like a key turning in a lock, opening a door. It might be the date when an inheritance comes through or you take on a new property.

Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your future goals especially after the 18th. If you play your cards right mid-month, you could find that a new opportunity is just what you need to sort out a financial issue in one fell swoop.

  • Lucky Money Dates: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th

Keep the faith and ensure your positive nature helps you overcome any fear, lack or scarcity. Your attitude can make a huge difference moving forwards. The Full Moon on the 20th could bring things to completion as it too cuts across the financial axis of your horoscope.

Stretch Your Comfort Zone

Scorpio is a fellow water sign. You often feel in your element when the inner planets move through this sector of your horoscope.

This could feel easier for you than the planetary activity in Libra which is more inner than outer. Here’s what’s happening in the planetary picture in Scorpio:

  • Venus (love/relating) – until the 7th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd
  • Mars (action/drive) – from the 30th

Scorpio season peaks in the last week of October once the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd. Sign up for a new experience or adventure late October and stretch your comfort zone.

Scorpio rules travel and study, the bigger picture in your life. Seek out mystery, find what’s extraordinary and push back the boundaries of your life.

Pluto Power

Pluto could be the planetary equivalent of the spanner in the works this month. It turns direct on the 6th, the same day as the New Moon. Therefore, if you’re to start over and be able to make the most of your opportunities, especially financially, something’s got to give. Consider what’s not working out and where you’d be better off cutting your losses.

Pluto clashes with the planets in Libra. This could flag up a deficit. You’re wise to pay close attention to money when Pluto’s active. Try not to miss any payments and create new systems that help you keep close tabs on all things financial.

  • Pluto Clashes: 1st, 17th & 22nd

Libra doesn’t only rule money in your horoscope but taboo matters too. It can be linked to issues around power & control, sex & sexuality, death & rebirth. Go deeper this month and look at where else in life you’re wise to explore more.

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

It’s All About The Journey

It’s a good month to pay close attention to the phrase ‘it’s about the journey not the destination’. This is because you have a lot of planetary activity taking place in your fellow air sign Libra, which rules travel and study in your horoscope. Yet, it’s a complex mix of opposing forces. Here’s what’s happening in Libra:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

You’re right to be thinking and looking ahead now and lining up some new plans for the future. With key planets in Libra, you want something more in your life than the every day. You might be exploring new beliefs, your philosophy on life, a spiritual path or a new religion. You could be interested in the workings of the mind or the mysteries of the world. Mars wants adventure in Libra and fast.

The New Moon on the 6th could be a pivotal date, a symbol of a new beginning, a fresh start for a holiday, trip, workshop or course. Active Mars is pulled into the New Moon energy and is lively on the 8th & 9th. Expand your horizons, step out of your comfort zone and be bold and courageous.

Admittedly, Mercury is retrograde in Libra until the 18th but that doesn’t mean sit at home and do nothing. It’s the opposite, in fact, as Mercury retrograde in Libra is an ideal time to change around your routine, stop, retreat, go somewhere different. It can be an extremely creative and innovative Mercury retrograde phase, as long as you’re flexible and you’re willing to go wherever life leads you.

The Full Moon on the 20th is when the Libra energy peaks and it would be a great date to get away, go somewhere different or do something that broadens your outlook on life. This could be the time when you hear about a course, a test or exam. Or, you find out what’s possible when it comes to travel and what’s not.

By the time of the Full Moon, Mercury has turned direct on the 18th and this can bring new information or news to light that helps you make a decisive move.

Your Personal Projects

Also, this month you have two planets turning direct in your star sign Aquarius. Firstly, Saturn, the planet of commitment and responsibility, turns direct on the 11th. Sometimes, this coincides with an ending or a disappointment. Or at least, it’s time to get real about what you can can’t achieve. Saturn is strong in Aquarius and good for being disciplined and determined.

The best turning point, however, is Jupiter turning direct in your star sign Aquarius on the 18th, the same day as Mercury turns direct. This is a gorgeous green light and could be fortunate for many different areas of your life.

Jupiter’s linked to foreign connections, higher education, the law, publishing, the media, religion. It would be a great date to do something magical and say yes to a new experience that enhances your life.

  • Lucky Jupiter dates: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th

Career Moves

The planets start to make their way towards the peak of your horoscope in October and there’s some key activity in Scorpio and your career and vocation sector. Here’s the planetary line-up:

  • Venus (love/relating) – until the 7th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd
  • Mars (action/drive) – from the 30th

You might have new ideas and plans for your future path this month. Scorpio season is a good time to set up meetings and interviews, write a CV or business plan and generally get things moving, whatever your next steps.

Get the right people on your side and use your network or connections especially during the first week of the month. There might be influential people in your life, perhaps a woman in a powerful position.

Ensure you know what you’re doing and be prepared. Use the Mercury retrograde phase to do your research, chase up old contacts and make learning and study a key part of your success. Be prepared and ready to put new career or vocational plans into action in the last week of the month.

Endings & Letting Go

Something may need to come to an end this month, if you’re to make the most of the opportunities opening up in front of you. This has a lot to do with the fact that the slowest-moving planet Pluto turns direct on the 6th in Capricorn.

Capricorn is the most hidden sector of your horoscope, linked to the past, your karma or your inner self. Be vigilant about your thoughts this month and don’t let negativity take hold.

Do make the most of your opportunities this month and don’t be your own worst enemy. Keep moving steadily forwards, even if at times you take two steps forward and one step back.

  • Pluto Clashes: 1st, 17th & 22nd

Notice what’s holding you back or what’s not working out. It might be that a new opportunity can’t begin or you’re unable to embrace the freedom you crave until you let go or say goodbye to the past.

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

Career Do’s & Don’ts

There’s a lot of planetary activity taking place in Libra this month, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope. This means it’s time to turn your gaze towards your future path, where you’re heading and why. Here’s the planetary line-up in Libra:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

Mars in your career and vocation sector is often a period of ambition. You know what you want and you’ll go all out to get it. Mars is particularly active during the New Moon on the 6th and kicks in big-time on the 8th & 9th. This may be a time when you’re called to step into your power or you have a burning desire that wants to be fulfilled.

It can be a competitive or argumentative time but a New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings and the chance to turn to a new page and make a fresh start. You may have to step up your game during this period in October.

Note, however, that talk planet Mercury is retrograde until the 18th. Therefore, it’s not the best time to sign and seal a contract while Mercury’s on go slow. Also, you may find that some information is hidden from you. If you’re discussing a new job or negotiating with an important client, make sure that you double-check everything and read the small print.

Once Mercury turns direct on the 18th, then you can go for any new opportunity with confidence. Plus, on the same day, the planet of opportunity Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your money sector. Put the two planetary events together and you could grab yourself a prize. It could be the day you start a new job, get promoted or invest your money in a business or venture that’s dear to your heart.

Jupiter’s the planet linked to abundance, faith and trust in life. Make the most of Jupiter’s beneficial edge this month and stay positive, even if some things don’t work out first time around.

  • Lucky work & money dates: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th

People In Your Life

A personal relationship could be up for review at the time of the Full Moon on the 20th. The Moon is the symbol for your partner in astrology. Therefore, the lunations, the Full and New Moons often coincide with significant developments in your 1-to-1’s.

Ensure that any relationship or partnership is right for you mid-month. Make adjustments and do what’s best for the both of you. A relationship may be able to move forward in a positive shift after the 18th. Up until then, Mercury is retrograde in Libra, the sign linked to relating. Don’t make any major relationship decisions before this date.

Friends too are there for fun, laughter, support and advice at key times throughout October. This is because of planets moving through Scorpio and your friendship and group sector. Here’s the planetary line-up in Scorpio:

  • Venus (love/relating) – until the 7th
  • Mars (action/passion) – from the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd

Scorpio season is great for widening your social circle whether on your own or with your partner. If you’re looking for love, ask your friends for an introduction in the first week of October as friendship and love are linked.

Use your connections well, especially once the Sun moves into Scorpio on the 23rd. Being around people of influence could make a huge difference to your life, especially next month once ambitious Mars moves into this same sector of your horoscope. Network and make the right connections.

Balancing The Scales

Pluto is active this month as it turns direct in your star sign Capricorn on the 6th. Pluto represents power and intensity. At its best, it gives you laser focus and lends you super powers.

The downside of Pluto is obsession to the point of wipe-out. This flags up a cautionary note that the Libra scales are urging you to find a healthy work/life balance in October. Take care of your body, mind and spirit and adopt a holistic approach to your well-being.

  • Pluto Clashes: 1st, 17th & 22nd – less is more

The Full Moon on the 20th could be pivotal as it cuts across the Libra/Aries axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. You may have a big decision to make on the Full Moon regarding your career or vocation, where you live or your family situation.

This might be linked to money as your ruling planet Saturn turns direct in Aquarius and your money sector on the 11th. This if often a time to make a commitment, although wait until Mercury turns direct first on the 18th. Or, sometimes a payment or income stream comes to an end and you have to rethink your next steps.

The stars suggest that you’re wise to prioritise your work and career, your future goals. During the Full Moon, you may feel pulled in different directions and something’s got to give. Trust your intuition during the Full Moon period. Do what feels right and combine that with common sense, logic and rationality.

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

Friendship – It’s Complicated

The majority of the planetary activity this month is taking place in the air sign Libra, one of the social signs of the zodiac. This means there’s strong emphasis on your friendship and group sector with a lot of key planets vying for attention. Here’s the planetary line-up in Libra:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

You may have a strong drive to make new friends now, join a new group, club or society or become more involved with society as a whole. This fits the truth-loving side of your nature. You often like to do your bit for society, whether political, environmental, humanitarian or any other worthy or good cause.

The New Moon could be powerful on the 6th as it pulls in Mars, the planet of ambition and willpower. Mars is active on the 8th & 9th and the New Moon phase is a symbol of new beginnings. It’s a great time to fight for what you believe in and initiate a powerful fresh start in the areas mentioned.

Yet, it is potentially a complex time for friendships as talk planet Mercury is retrograde until the 18th. This can be a time of misunderstandings and untruths. Sometimes, people go quiet on you or you fall out with someone close. You might be keen to leave a group. Alternatively, you’re on the waiting list for a new group venture.

Be patient if this is the case and note that there’s a powerful turning point on the 18th. Not only does Mercury turn direct, bringing new information to light, but your ruling planet Jupiter turns direct on the same day. Jupiter’s in another air sign, Aquarius, linked to communication and community in your horoscope.

If you’re involved in sales, marketing, fund-raising, any area of life that requires a wide circle of people, here’s your green light. Your tweet could go viral, your TikTok video could reach new heights. Or, you could come across the right person at the right time who brings a new and exciting opportunity or venture your way.

Two days later and there’s a Full Moon on the 20th cutting across the social Libra/Aries axis of the zodiac. This is a gorgeous Full Moon for celebration and potentially romance. If you’ve been getting to know someone while Mercury’s been on go slow or an old flame is back in your life, use the Full Moon vibes to complete the deal.

  • Lucky Jupiter Dates: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th – trust your luck

Dive In Deep

At times this month, it’s important to turn your attention to personal issues. It would be easy to only get involved in what’s going on in the world or your social life. Yet, there’s a strong influence building in your previous star sign, Scorpio. Here’s the planetary picture:

  • Venus (love/relating) – until the 7th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd
  • Mars (action/drive) – from the 30th

When planets are in Scorpio, this turns your attention inwards. You might be exploring the metaphysical realm, be talking to spirits or be on a psychic or spiritual path. You could choose to explore therapy or become a coach or counsellor.

During Scorpio season, take some time out, go on retreat and give 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. Scorpio season is ideal for research and in-depth study too.

Money Tips & Tricks

Be wary around loaning money or getting involved with a rich crowd this month. This is because of what’s happening with the slower-moving planet Pluto. Pluto’s currently in Capricorn and your money sector.

  • Tricky money dates: 1st, 17th, 22nd

Consider carefully what you get involved in financially this month and think things through logically and rationally. Pluto is powerful now because it turns direct on the 6th when 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 throughout September to December 2021, there’s a rare semi-sextile aspect between your planet Jupiter in Aquarius 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.

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 have faith.

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

It’s All About You

October does feel as if it’s a month when you’re in the cosmic spotlight more so than usual. There’s a lot happening in your star sign and it could make for a complex but exciting month. Here’s the planetary line-up in Libra:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until 18th
  • Mars (action/drive) – until 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until 23rd

For most of you, October is your birthday month and it’s a lovely time to celebrate to the full. Mars is the planet of ambition and drive so don’t let other people step in front of you or defer to others more than usual. Instead, be loud & proud about what you want and what you can achieve.

Admittedly, Mercury is retrograde in Libra until the 18th so some plans or decisions may be on hold until then. You often play a waiting game when Mercury’s on go slow in your star sign. It’s not the best time to rush into a new look or push ahead with personal goals & aims.

Having said that, the period around the New Moon on the 6th could bring new beginnings. It’s a powerful New Moon as it pulls in passionate Mars. Mars is full-on energy during the 8th & 9th. Be wary of getting into arguments but do be assertive, forceful and step into your power.

The spotlight’s on you throughout October so make the most of it – be self-centred when necessary and ensure you get your needs met.

Love & Relationships

This could be an intriguing month for love. Sometimes, people from your past come back into your life when Mercury’s retrograde. Plus, your partner planet is Mars, linked to passion and the libido and it’s in your star sign Libra all month. Make the most of it.

The Full Moon on the 20th is a pivotal moment in the month for your one-to-one’s as it cuts across the Libra/Aries axis of the zodiac. Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened.

This could be a key turning point for a relationship especially if new information comes to light on or around the 18th when Mercury turns direct. Perhaps, someone’s not available until then or you’re the one who keeps changing your mind.

Plus, two other planets turn direct in air sign Aquarius this month and Aquarius rules romance in your horoscope. Also, children & pregnancy, creativity, entertainment, play & luck.

Saturn turns direct here on the 11th followed by Jupiter on the 18th. Saturn could flag up a disappointment but it’s not the end of the matter.

Jupiter’s change of direction on the same day as Mercury turning direct spells good news. A love affair or romance could get the green light – big-time.

  • Lucky love dates: 4th, 15th, 18th, 28th

Money Moves

It’s an important month to keep close tabs on money. Your planet Venus is in Scorpio and your money sector until the 7th. Whatever your current financial situation, you might have to wait for Scorpio season to kick in properly before you know where you stand financially. This is because of the Mercury retrograde phase and Mercury’s linked to trade and the money markets.

Once Scorpio season begins and the Sun moves into Scorpio on the 23rd, it’s time to get savvy about cash. You could be in a strong position to make a strategic move. Plus, action planet Mars joins the Sun in Scorpio on the 30th adding extra power for money and finances which will kick in next month.

Endings & Moving On

There’s a theme of endings this month, saying goodbye to the past or letting go of a situation that’s no longer viable or isn’t working out. This is because the planet Pluto is dominant as it turns direct on the 6th in Capricorn. Capricorn is the star sign at the base of your horoscope, linked to your home and family, also your past and where you come from.

This could flag up an issue with a parent. Or, perhaps the end of a significant chapter in your life. You may be saying goodbye to the past and have a sense of moving on.

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

It’s all going on in the most hidden sector of your horoscope this month as key planets are in Libra, the star sign before Scorpio in the zodiac. Here’s what’s happening in Libra:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (your ruling planet) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

When planets are in Libra, this is often a period of preparation when you’re getting ready for the Sun’s move into your star sign. It’s a good time to turn your attention inwards, whether you’re involved in spiritual work or you want more quiet and solitude in your life.

Plus, with the planet of communication Mercury retrograde until the 18th, you might be involved in a research project or be studying for an exam. For one reason or another, you need more time to yourself, whether to rest and retreat or because you’re juggling a lot of different balls and need some down-time in between.

The period around the New Moon on the 6th looks particularly lively when your planet Mars is pulled into the mix. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings and Mars is active on the 8th & 9th. This combination could be argumentative or competitive. Alternatively, you’re on a mission and determined to make something happen. This could be linked to a relationship or partnership in your life.

It would be an excellent month to go on retreat and switch off social media, at least up until the 18th. You might be caring for someone close, perhaps a family member, or be prioritising your self-care.

The Full Moon could be pivotal in this respect on the 20th. There may be a sense of completion on or around this date, whether you finish your writing project or you’re ready to close the door on the past and want to be back out in the world.

Home & Family

This could be a significant month for developments around your home or family. Two planets turn direct in Aquarius in October and this is the star sign at the base of your horoscope. Saturn picks up the pace on the 11th followed by Jupiter on the 18th.

This could prove important – Saturn is about commitment or one situation coming to an end. Jupiter represents freedom and new opportunities – a disappointment followed by a breakthrough perhaps.

Note the date when Jupiter is back up to speed – the 18th, the same day as Mercury turns direct. This is a green light date so expect news or information to come to light that can help you forge ahead. You may be putting down roots or extending your family.

The Focus Is On You

The focus is on you for a great part of October. This is because of what’s happening in your star sign Scorpio:

  • Venus (love/money) – until the 7th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd
  • Mars (ambition/passion) – from the 30th

Venus, the planet of love and relating, is in Scorpio until the 7th. This is great for heart-to-hearts, insight & deep connections. You might step into the role of counsellor, coach or good friend more so 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.

Once the Sun’s in your star sign Scorpio from the 23rd onwards, you may discover you have more energy & vitality and you’re ready to focus more on your life out in the world. You may be taking what you’ve learned earlier in the month with you. Once the Sun is in Scorpio, it’s your time to shine – put yourself and your needs first.

Pluto – Time Manager

Pluto is Scorpio’s co-ruler and Pluto’s energy is intense, powerful, focused. Pluto’s dominant this month as it turns direct on the 6th. This can be helpful for studying, research work, analysis and strategising and backs up the Mercury retrograde theme.

Pluto’s laser focus in your communication sector could help 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 upset you. Carefully consider what you read or listen to in the month ahead. If the news is depressing you, switch it off. If there’s someone in your life who moans incessantly, put boundaries in place and 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, 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.

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
