OCTOBER 2017

Capricorn Sun
Capricorn Rising

October begins with Mars and Venus both engaging Pluto and each other during the first week, with the emphasis on your 8th House of other people’s resources.

Mars–and Venus to a lesser degree–has brought an increase in activity here for several weeks, so you may already know what the transit is addressing for you, but if it’s not clear, there are a couple of ways this could be impacting your life.

 

You may be in the process of addressing your financial situation by reviewing debt, investments, insurance, wills and the like, especially if you’re preparing to take on a loan of some sort. Or, it’s possible you’re working on a deal which could net you bonus or commission income, if you earn money that way. If a financial scenario is the case, it’s likely this is all happening quite privately and you may prefer to keep it that way.

 

Alternatively, you may be undergoing some highly personal psychological or metaphysical exploration of your own which leads to a spiritual transformation or groundbreaking shifts deep in your unconscious mind.

 

However this is playing out for you, the changes are likely to be beneficial, as Pluto, the natural ruler of the 8th House and the planet of transformation and rebirth, is helping guide these changes from your 12th House of privacy, seclusion, and spiritual matters.

 

Mars takes the initiative when he reaches out to Pluto on the 1st of October, and two days later, on the 3rd, Venus follows suit. By the 5th Venus catches up with Mars to amplify his activity and grace it with her own energy, just in time for the new moon in Pisces. Both planets will still be in a wide trine to Pluto this day, so watch for some type of change or transformation when they meet.

 

The full moon will light up your 3rd House of travel, communication, siblings and neighbors, and you may be wrapping up a writing project, taking a trip to a location not too far from home, or seeing to activities with siblings, neighbors or cousins (the 3rd House rules cousins, too) near this full moon.  If you’ve been working on a writing or communication project, use the days just after this full moon for the finishing touches and final edits.

 

Mercury conjoins the sun on the 8th of October, the same day Venus squares off with Saturn in your 11th House of friends, organizations, hopes and dreams.

 

This is a day when you find you have great mental clarity and insight, yet may need Saturn’s guidance to remind you there’s very little benefit to slacking off on your obligations. Saturn wants to see you develop responsibility, and if you’re too busy playing the hedonist, he’ll withhold his gifts and keep you from acquiring what it is you want.

On the 9th be aware of the risk of power struggles between yourself and a VIP who may be helping you privately. You may be identifying too closely with your own notions and ideas to appreciate the situation.

 

Venus enters Virgo on the 10th of October for a three and 1/2 week visit to your 9th House of international affairs, You’ll likely find sincere appreciation for the values and the beauty of other cultures during this time, especially those which are dramatically different from your own.

 

Mars challenges Saturn from your 8th House on the 11th, but Saturn always wins this fight–he wants you to learn commitment and patience, and if you rush into things impulsively then quit before your work is done because you ran out of steam, or didn’t consider that challenges you’d face, he’ll simply prevent you from both achieving what you want and receiving the associated rewards. This a time to take responsibility and complete all your 8th House work or risk wasting all the effort you’ve made so far.

 

Keep at it and see this through, and by the 12th Saturn may have some good news for you.

Now let’s step back to the 24th just a moment, when Mercury in your house of international affairs sends a friendly missive to Neptune in your 2nd House of earned income. Watch for good financial news this day, possibly related to a publishing or broadcasting venture. Alternatively, you may receive the money that you need for a trip somewhere far away.

 

Finally, on the 27th, beware of the potential for covert power struggles or private clashes with an authority. Good career news may ease the tension.

With these modifiers in mind, the best strategy is to hold off making your initiation until the 25th or 26th when the sun conjoins Jupiter, heralding the luckiest day of the year. Jupiter’s influence actually spans two degrees of the zodiac, so you’ll feel this effect over both days, and if you act during either of them you’ll tie Jupiter’s protective and lucky energy into the entirety of your endeavor.

 

Now stepping back to the 24th, you could receive pleasant news near this day which affects you personally, news which would travel a great distance to reach you.

 

Finally, on the 27th, be prepared for struggles for control or influence over a 9th House matter. If you decide to go away to university for instance, a friend could try to influence you to change your mind as just one example.
