OCTOBER 2018

Sagittarius Sun
Saggitarius 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 ruler changes signs this month, too, dear Sagittarius, so your focus and attention will shift from friendships and social  activities to highly personal or private matters.

Mercury square Pluto

 

Power struggles or challenges to your authority are possible in your career and professional life early in the month, as Mercury squares off with Pluto from your solar 10th House. Someone could call you out publicly in front of peers and colleagues, and you may be forced to assert yourself.

 

Venus stations retrograde

 

Venus–ruler of your solar 11th House of friends, organizations, hopes and dreams–stations retrograde on the 5th of October, bringing your social life to a crawl and giving you an opportunity to reevaluate what’s important to you in friendships and social connections in the coming six weeks.

 

Alternatively, you can use Venus’s slowdown to consider how important your long held hopes and dreams are to you and whether you want to do more to make them come true.

 

Mercury enters Libra

 

The very next day, October 6th, Mercury moves into Libra, joining Venus there for the coming three weeks. Social invitations and news from friends are likely to come your way while Mercury tours your friendship sector.

 

Spend time visiting and connecting with friends in the coming weeks, and use this month’s social schedule to take a long look at who you like to spend time around and why. Get clear on what social activities are most enjoyable to you and what makes them so much fun.

New Moon in Virgo

 

A career opportunity could arise in the days around the October 8th new moon in Virgo. You might consider joining a club or other social group at the urging of a child or love interest in your life. Spontaneous fun or taking a calculated risk could earn you a new friend.

 

If you’ve been thinking about making an upward career move consider using this new moon to examine your options and make your start, whether that looks like maneuvering for a promotion or searching out altogether brand new professional opportunities.

 

Then, update your resume for a modern job market and hit the pavement.

 

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 may need to shell out for a social engagement near the 10th of October, and if so, the good news is the money you need is likely to be there. A child or romantic partner could surprise you with a last minute invite or social activity, for instance.

 

Sun square Pluto

 

You may need to exert your influence professionally come the 11th, or a peer, colleague, or boss could challenge you for control over an important matter near this date, when Pluto and the sun challenge each other over your 10th House of career, status, and achievement.

 

Mercury sextile Saturn

 

If you need to meet a responsibility near the 12th, a friend could  be of assistance. Reach out to ask for their help, you’ll both be glad you did.

“Spend time visiting and connecting with friends in the coming weeks, and use this month’s social schedule to take a long look at who you like to spend time around and why. Get clear on what social activities are most enjoyable to you and what makes them so much fun.”

Mercury conjunct retrograde Venus, Jupiter enters Scorpio

 

Get together with a friend and reminisce about old times on the 15th and you’ll be reminded of just how much you enjoy this person’s company. If it’s been a while since you socialized just for fun, you can consider it an act of self care to do so right now.

 

Strong social connections are necessary for health and happiness, and just now you’re getting a forceful reminder of why that is.

 

Jupiter finally moves on from your social sector the same day, entering Scorpio and your solar 12th House of privacy and seclusion. He’ll be here for the coming year, making sure you get adequate time for rest and relaxation.

 

This is a time when self care can be particularly beneficial for you, and you may find solo projects take on greater appeal, too.

 

Sun enters Libra

 

The sun moves into Libra on the 18th of the month, joining Mercury and Venus in your friendship sector. You social life will be in the spotlight in the coming four weeks, between now and mid November.

 

You may find yourself attending more networking events or just reconnecting with old friends and catching up with each other.

 

Mercury square Mars, Mercury trine Neptune

 

Watch for a social invitation to come your way near the 19th. You could get together with friends to see a film or enjoy the local theater together. Get out and have some fun with people whose company you take pleasure in.

 

Mercury sextile Pluto

 

You could receive news which affects you directly near the 22nd, possibly from a friend or social connection.

 

Sun opposed Uranus

 

A child or romantic partner could catch you off guard near the 23rd when Uranus and the sun face off. Or, a surprise social event leaves you rearranging your schedule at the last minute.

 

If you do suddenly have the impulse to get out of the house and do something fun, take a friend, lover, or a child–or all three–and make it an event.

 

Full Moon in Aries, retrograde Venus sextile Saturn

 

Do something fun and spontaneous near the full moon in your solar 5th house of creativity and romance on October 24th. Alternatively, take a creative risk and prepare yourself for an unexpected outcome.

 

You can use this full moon to put the finishing touches on a hobby or creative project or an artistic endeavor and launch your creation into the world. Then, celebrate your accomplishment with a long time friend.

Sun conjunct retrograde Venus

 

You could run into an old friend near the 26th and enjoy time spent catching up with each other when retrograde Venus and the sun meet up in your social sector.

 

Mercury enters Scorpio, Sun sextile Saturn

 

The, the following day Mercury leaves for your 12th House of privacy and seclusion, joining Jupiter there until after the new year. Typically Mercury spends three weeks or less in a sign, but he’s preparing to retrograde next month and he’ll be in Scorpio for nearly ten weeks.

 

This is a time when you can reconnect with your spiritual practices like meditation, study, and self reflection. You may find you’ve outgrown certain beliefs or unconscious patterns of thought that you perpetuate automatically but which really no longer reflect what you actually think or believe.

 

Secrets can also come out under a Mercury retrograde transit of the 12th House. While it’s too late to recall any secrets you may have shared up until now, you’ll want to be quite careful of sharing any personal or sensitive information during the coming weeks.

 

For all my best advice on how to work with Mercury retrograde house by house, you’ll want to read up for the 12th 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.

 

Also on the 27th, the sun and Saturn connect in your social sector, giving you the opportunity to get involved in a social cause if you are drawn to make an impact in some way. Or, you can commit to actualizing a dream you’ve been holding close for some time.

Then, watch for news near the 29th when you could privately hear something which affects you directly. Or, you may be told something in confidence and it could be significant. You may have to choose whether to keep it to yourself or not.

 

Venus opposed Uranus

 

Finally, at month’s end Venus and Uranus team up to bring you surprises. You could encounter unexpected opportunities to enjoy yourself with a friend, child or lover near the 31st. Fun and spontaneity are the hallmarks of the day.
