As autumn officially begins, the darker days and colder climate can get some of us down, but we have plenty of support and help from Mars and The Moon to shine some light and warm us up. Saturn is bringing negativity to almost all the signs this month, focussing mainly on our work lives where we’ll find it a struggle to keep up with demand at times. We’ll also be faced with some complex situations regarding those around us.
This relates to our work lives for some of us, and our families for others. We should all stay true to who we are and don’t be talked into anything we aren’t comfortable with, or be expected to accept a situation we know isn’t fair.
Although Saturn is seeking to cause trouble where it can, we have a lot to be thankful for and this month especially, we have loyal and loving friends.
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
Although technically Mars is on your side this month, Saturn will be its nearest comrade and Saturn is in a playful mood. In other words, play things straight and Mars will shower you with positivity, but deviate and you’ll feel the force of both planets in tandem. Think carefully before you make any decisions, especially at work and in financial matters, as this seems to be where Saturn wants to mess with you most. Your home life should be fairly calm, the only problem coming from members of your family who want to tell you how you should be doing things, or how to live your life. Stand your ground here and don’t be dictated to. Even if Saturn seeks to cause trouble, it’s not worth being walked all over.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
Venus looks like being in full support of you in October and though she’s traditionally all in favour of love and relationships, Saturn and Pluto will try to disrupt your life in this very area. The way forward is to attack problems head on. Don’t let issues get the better of you, but motivate yourself and look for solutions. Take good care of yourself this month and watch out for your health, as stress and pressure at home can cause physical trouble too. Your work life should be much more straight forward and the only problem here is that you’ll be bombarded with information at times and may find it difficult to process it all. Stay calm and work through everything methodically.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/21
You’d forgiven for thinking the planets are ganging up on you this month, with only Mercury staying by your side. But one friend is better than none and you’ll have to trust in Mercury to guide you through some troubled waters in October. You’ll need to be strong in your work life where you’ll face opposition from your colleagues and any clients you might have. If you can keep going through the bad weather those above you, or in influential positions, will recognise your resilience. Avoid spending time with your family this month, as minor irritations between you will quickly blow out of proportion. Your friends will be your support mechanism and you’ll learn who your true friends are – the ones who stick around and stick by you.
Cancer 6/22 – 7/22
Although Saturn is looking to do harm wherever it can this month, you have The Moon on your side and there’s nothing quite like The Moon to shine a light in the darkness. At work someone is going to try to talk you into doing something you don’t feel comfortable with, or lead you down a dark path. They’ll have all the chat to convince you this is a great idea, but you know deep down it’s not where you want to go. You may have to accept that money isn’t everything and living with yourself happily is more important to you. It could be this person, or it could be someone closer to you, but someone around you is going to envy, and maybe even feel hatred towards, you. Be cautious and don’t rise to any bait. This person will show themselves for what they are in time.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
In one corner you have Pluto and The Sun gunning for you and in the other you have Uranus wanting to bring you down. Before you rejoice in the two against one scenario, Pluto and The Sun will suffer some weakness of energy while Uranus will have its strengthened. This will pretty much put them on an even keel, but you’re still going to need to be careful and put effort in. Work hard, but don’t make any big decisions or sign anything this month, as you can’t be sure you have all the information. Single Leos will meet someone new this month, but for one reason or another this connection is likely to not quite hit the spot. This girl is either not the one for you, or you’re going to mess up. Put it down to experience and keep going.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
Only Mercury is going to stand out as working against you this month and this will have such a minor effect you’re unlikely to feel it at all. Opportunities at work will be varied and this is a great time to look at expanding your income. Whether you work full time already or not, think about how you can make some cash in addition to your wage and look at new horizons with positivity. If you’ve thought about changing career, now is the perfect time to make this a reality. You’ll be asking some deep questions about those closest to you in October. Nothing has lead you here specifically, but you’ll be doubting their love and loyalty. Try to look at things from their point of view and don’t jump to any conclusions.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
There’ll be a clash of wills going on between Saturn and Venus in your house this month. This means you’ll find disruptions and annoying delays in all areas of your life, though there won’t be anything too serious going on. At work you’ll be fielding minor issue and kinks in the smooth running of things left right and centre. There’s also likely to be a lot of events and activities to sort out. This could get frustrating for you as it will slow you down, but try to accept that this is the way it is right now and calm will come again later. At home you’ll face a similar story, but here it could lead you to ask yourself if constant niggles and issue are worth it. This is where it could get serious if the answer is no.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
Saturn is a force for negative for many of the signs this month, and you’re no different. However, you have The Moon and Mars on your side and they’ll prove more than a match for sad Scorpio. This could cause you to feel a general dampening of your mood and a suppression of your energy, especially in the first ten days of October. Don’t try to figure out the cause or look for answers, just try to ride it out and know that it will pass. This darkness is likely to affect you mostly at work as it’s all too easy to blame your working life for dark moods, Your home life should be the one thing that provides some sanctuary and spending time with loved ones is highly recommended.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
You will be the exception to the rule this month, as Saturn, who’s playing havoc with the other signs, looks like taking a shine to you. Teaming up with Venus, this temperamental planet will do all it can to oppose any negativity in your house. You will still need to be careful though, especially in your personal life where you’re advised to not socialise with your partner in big groups. This looks like it will lead to arguments and conflict between you. At work you’ll need to double check everything you do for mistakes and make sure you’re following instructions to the letter and paying close attention to details. If you keep this covered you should see out the month without any problems.
Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19
While a battle goes on between The Moon, gunning for you, and Jupiter, against you, Saturn will decide to opt out completely. Saturn is in a dark mood with most of the signs this month so this is unexpected behaviour. This will mean you’ll suffer a loss of influence in your day to day life and you can’t count on the support you usually can. Work could be difficult when you’re asked to give your attention to two separate projects at the same time. You won’t be able to do this and you’ll have to prioritise one, which could lead to problems for you. The issue at home will be with your family where you’ll either fall out with someone or you’ll realise that they don’t, and won’t, understand you. It’s your call, but you can’t force someone to open their eyes.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
When Saturn decides to drop of its responsibilities to you this month, Mars is only too happy to step in and take over. This is going to cause some upheaval in your house as one tries to fit the other’s shoes. The area you need to keep a close eye on is your finances. You can keep things ticking over here and stay on the level as long as you follow a budget and don’t give in to any temptations. You should follow this thinking through into other areas of your life in October and look at any bad habits you might have. What are these weaknesses actually bringing to your life? Can you see a brighter future without them? Be tough with yourself and be honest. You have the strength to put things in perspective.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
You often find this time of year brings you down and you struggle with the darker days and cold weather. However, Venus is bringing you some light in October and the effects of the season should be minimal this year. Your work life will be busy this month and you’ll be in high demand. Use this opportunity to really show what you can do and put yourself forward. Stay confident, but don’t take on too much and start to buckle. October will be an unforgiving month if you push too hard. Don’t mix your work life with your personal life, and try to not bring emotions into your work. Your home looks stable, with only a few minor issues in your family to deal with. Choose your battles here and don’t get caught up in little dramas.
