Capricorn Sun
Capricorn Rising

October opens on the heels of Pluto’s return to direct motion, just as Venus prepares for her own retrograde in Libra. Retrograde Pluto wrought internal changes and transformations, and now retrograde Venus arrives to help us reevaluate our new circumstances and priorities.


Your career and professional life are active during October, dear Capricorn, giving you the chance to really drill down into what’s important to you in terms of achievement and recognition.

Mercury square Pluto


Early in the month you could find yourself up against deadlines related to solo projects or to work you’re doing behind closed doors when Mercury and Pluto square off on the 2nd.  


Venus stations retrograde


Then, Venus retrogrades in your solar 10th House of fame and achievement for six weeks, kicking off an opportunity for you to sit back and take stock of what you’ve accomplished in your career in the past year and where you plan on going.


Take a closer look at what efforts are actually paying off and which aren’t, without passing judgement. This is a time to take stock of what’s important to your forward progress and what’s not.


Mercury enters Libra


The very next day Mercury joins Venus–and Jupiter–in your solar 10th House, bringing news and conversation to your professional life. You may exchange information with colleagues or even travel for career purposes in the coming three weeks.


Alternatively, consider writing something relevant to your field to share with your clients or professional peers.

New Moon in Virgo


A travel opportunity could come up suddenly in the days around October 8th, or you could impulsively decide to pursue higher education or a legal matter, or even begin a publishing or broadcasting effort such as writing a novel or screenplay.


Make your new start in the week just after this new moon–choose the 12th or 15th to make your initiation for best effect.


Venus square Mars, Mercury opposed Uranus


You’ll likely find yourself busy in your professional life near the 10th, when you may be tapped as a partner to others. Unexpected news could come up near that date, and you may have to react on a dime.


Sun square Pluto


Behind the scenes power struggles are possible on the 11th if you butt heads with an influential VIP or authority figure. There may be a clash for control over the message you wish to communicate to a broader audience.


Mercury sextile Saturn


If you make or meet a professional commitment to a career colleague near the 12th it turns out to be the right thing to do. You could be publicly recognized for private work or for work you accomplished largely on your own.


Mercury conjunct retrograde Venus, Jupiter enters Scorpio


Career news is possible at mid month when retrograde Venus and Mercury meet up at the top of your chart. You could reconnect with a former professional partner and celebrate each others achievements.


Jupiter moves into Scorpio the same day, giving your social life a boost in the coming year while he tours your 11th House of friendships, hopes and dreams.


If you have long held hopes or dreams you’d like to reach for the coming year holds incredible potential–but only if you’re willing to take action.

Sun enters Libra


On the 18th the sun moves into Libra for his annual four week tour of your career sector, putting your professional life in the spotlight until mid November. This is your time to shine, especially with three planets total drawing attention to your achievements.


Mercury square Mars, Mercury trine Neptune


Career travel may be necessary in order to achieve your goals when Mars and Mercury square off on the 19th. Or, you may find it challenging to craft your message in a way that makes you stand out from the competition.


A career achievement could impact your earnings in an big way, too. You’ve demonstrated your worth, and now your wallet could get a boost as well.


Mercury sextile Pluto


A VIP or other influential individual could recognize your professional efforts privately near the 22nd, to your delight.


Sun opposed Uranus


Strike a balance between your professional image and the impulses of your inner rebel near the 23rd. You may find yourself suddenly in the spotlight.

Full Moon in Aries, retrograde Venus sextile Saturn


You could have a surprise visit from a female friend or family member near the full moon October 24th, or even be called on at the last minute to unexpectedly play host to a lady visitor. Relax, have fun, and enjoy the spontaneity.


If you’ve been working on a project around the house, use the days just after this full moon to finish up any final details in preparation for the upcoming holiday season.


A mentor or confidant could provide invaluable career advice or professional guidance near the full moon, too. You may not yet recognize the value of your own contributions.


Sun conjunct retrograde Venus


That value may become much more clear just a few days later, on October 26th, when it’s highlighted quite publicly for all to see.


Mercury enters Scorpio, Sun sextile Saturn


On the 27th of October Mercury moves into Scorpio and your solar 11th House of friendship, hopes, and dreams. You could hear from an old friend in the coming weeks, and catch up on all that’s happened while you’ve been apart.


Mercury will be in Scorpio for an extended stay, ten weeks in fact, as he prepares to retrograde for the third and final time this year at mid November. This is an excellent time to get back in touch with friends you haven’t seen in ages, and even to reconcile if you and a friend have had a falling out.


For all my best advice on how to work with Mercury retrograde house by house, you’ll want to read up for the 11th House in your copy of The Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide. You can get a brief rundown right here and even more information in the complete Guide, on sale for a limited time.


The same day could see you publicly recognized for private efforts when the sun and Saturn exchange friendly greetings.
