OCTOBER 2017

Libra Sun
Libra Rising

Early in the month the action is in your social and communication sectors, with Mars in your 11th House of friendship igniting the action on the 1st when he reaches out to Pluto in your 3rd House of travel, communication, siblings and  neighbors.

Social activities could put you in touch with an influential neighbor or community member, or a neighbor could be the one to make a valuable social introduction for you.

 

Two days later, on the 3rd, Venus follows suit, extending her greetings to Pluto right behind Mars.

 

The pair are due to conjoin on the 5th, just in time for the full moon in sidereal Pisces. The Venus-Mars conjunction will still be in a wide trine to Pluto, so the full moon will be intensely flavored with the Venus-Mars-Pluto aspect, and with Venus being your ruler you’re likely to feel energetic and optimistic during this full moon. Your magnetism makes you even more attractive than normal, and that’s a boon for you socially.

 

The full moon in sidereal Pisces lights your solar 6th House of work, health, pets and daily routine, suggesting that a work project or health concern is reaching conclusion, or that some part of your daily routine may be coming to an end.

 

One very useful way of leveraging a 6th House full moon is to release a bad habit that you’d like to let go of, and if that resonates with you, take steps to quit what ever behavior you have in mind in the days just after the full moon.

 

On the 8th Mercury conjoins the sun on your 12th House of privacy and seclusion, a day when you may find yourself wrapped in introspection, exploring the inner workings of your mind, in private contemplation, or perhaps journaling your thoughts and experiences.

 

If you’ve been stuck in any kind of indecision you can use this day to itemize the pros and cons of your choices and analyze them with clarity. Be sure to include in your assessment any mitigating factors or actions which you could take.

 

Your ruler, Venus, squares off with Saturn this day, so if the the financial expense of a social engagement leaves you less than enthusiastic, consider begging off and spend the time doing some productive inner work instead.

Power struggles with a sibling or neighbor could play out behind the scenes near the 9th. Try not to identify so much with your own thoughts or ideas on the issue. Remember, someone can disagree with your take on the issue without it being an attack on your person or your ideas. They may simply have a different perspective.

 

Alternatively, ask yourself whether you’re playing devil’s advocate out of habit instead of recognizing that a sibling or neighbor may truly be uncomfortable feeling like they don’t have some degree of control or influence in a situation, especially if they have something at stake, too.

 

Venus enters sidereal Virgo on the 10th of October, beginning a three and 1/2 week long tour of your solar 12th House of privacy and seclusion. You may be less interested in partnering with others during this time, possibly due to some indecision over whether to make a commitment, or simply your desire to spend some time alone–because even if we don’t always practice it, we all unconsciously know that self love is important.

 

If you do meet someone under this influence, it’s likely you’d keep the relationship hush-hush for the time being.

“Your magnetism makes you even more attractive than normal, and that’s a boon for you socially.”

Conflict with a friend over budget constraints could play out near the 11th, and you may need take a step back. Perhaps a friend expects you to participate in a lavish wedding and you find yourself short on funds, for example. Your friend may see this as a once in their lifetime event and not truly understand the source of your hesitation to fork out.

 

Or, you may argue over the loss of a possession if you lent something out, for instance.

 

Consider approaching a close friend or family member–possibly a woman–privately for assistance or advice in this situation, whatever it is. Even if they can’t help financially or intervene on an ownership matter, they may be able to offer suggestions or solutions.

 

Be patient, a workable solution may be closer than you think–watch for news near the 12th.

 

Mercury enters sidereal Libra on the 14th, the same day that Mars makes his move into Virgo for a six week stay.

 

Mercury’s stay in your solar 1st House will be much shorter, as he takes approximately three weeks here before moving on–you’ll may find yourself responding to communication, providing information or even mediating more than normal during this transit. Or, you may find yourself in a position where you need to “sell” yourself, and if you have a strong sense of your own value it will likely be very easy for you to communicate your worth.

 

Mars, on the other hand, will bring an opportunity to rest, relax, and rejuvenate yourself in private–take this time to retreat and practice some self care so you’ll be ready to be your most alluring self by the time the holiday season is in full swing. You’ll need to be in your best, rested shape by the time he’s ready to stir up action and adventure for you come December.

The very next day, October 15th, Mercury opposes unpredictable Uranus in your 7th House of partnership. A partner’s impulsive behavior or unexpected partnership news could catch you off guard.

 

Financial help could come near the 16th, possibly from a male in  your life, and if so you’ll want to keep it on the down low, This person may not want the world to know they’ve helped.

 

On the 17th the sun moves into sidereal Libra, marking the beginning of birthday month for you, dear Libra. This is a very special birthday month indeed, as you’ll soon discover!

 

Mercury conjoins Jupiter on the 18th in your home sign of Libra and your solar 1st House of image, appearance, self-expression and the physical body, bringing you wonderful news, or providing the perfect opportunity for you to connect with a partner and say everything it is you need to say. Just don’t be surprised if you get a reaction you didn’t anticipate.

 

The new moon in Libra on the 19th highlights your solar 1st House and signals your very special birthday new moon, which you get to use any way you like, dear Libra. Happy birthday to you!

 

This particular new moon has an element of unpredictability to it, opposing as it does Uranus in your partnership sector. In addition to that, Venus–your ruler and the ruler of this new moon–is unaspected, a sign that the outcome is entirely up in the air. So, think hard about what major initiation you would like to make in conjunction with your birthday new moon, but wait to take action until the 25th or 26th, the two luckiest days of the year.

Jupiter will conjoin the sun on the 26th and his effect over those two days will act not only to help protect you from the risk of disappointment, but also to bless the outcome of your actions at this time.

 

Backing up just a bit, on the 24th–if you have a romantic interest, spend some time together on this sweet day sharing your dreams with each other.

 

Alternatively, if you are an artist or creative type, you could find creative inspiration which you can use to communicate your meaning in a lovely way, whether with words, photography, painting, theater or similar pursuits–anything involving language or the creation of illusion.
