Libra 9/23 – 10/22
As in your life, in the planets this month you have some allies and some enemies. October brings a complex situation in the house of Libra that will require some energy and understanding on your part. Unfortunately, The Sun is striving to zap you of that energy and you’ll feel lazy and lethargic for much of the time. The Sun’s influence will be mostly felt at work where you’ll struggle to feel motivated. The only advice is to get up and get on with it, shake yourself and focus your mind. At home Venus is doing all she can to smooth your way and you won’t experience any major problems. On the contrary, you’ll even be called upon to help others around with their problems. Do what you can to help, positivity breeds positivity.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
Though we’d all like to think that hard work pays off, it doesn’t always feel like that’s the case. For Scorpio in October, however, that is exactly what’s going to happen. If you’ve ever felt like you’re knocking your head against a brick wall and you just can’t catch a break, October is the month when that will change. Mars and Venus are positioning themselves in exactly the same situation to each other as they normally do for Libra this month, which is both unusual and beneficial for you. You’ll get Libra’s share of luck and you’ll also get what you deserve. Work projects will bear fruit and you and your girl will have a harmonious few weeks. The only time you need to beware is around the new moon, October 13th, when moods could change. Keep your head and stay positive and all will be well.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
The position of Venus and Mercury this month show a very positive time for Sagittarius. However, the planets aren’t going to hand it to you on a plate, they want to see action. Standing still in life rarely achieves anything and in October 2015, standing still for Sagittariuns will not only get you nowhere, it will also see you miss important opportunities. Make your decisions fast, as long as you make them. Take chances. Go out on a limb and do things you’ve been too scared to do before. In all areas of your life be active, but in your relationship with your girl there’s no need to be looking too far ahead. October is all about living in the moment and seizing the day. For right now anyway, you can leave the future for the future to take care of.
Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19
October for Capricorn is all about taking stock. The position of Mars and The Moon means a host of different situations could be coming your way and now is the perfect time to step back and evaluate your life. Is your career going as you’d like? If the answer is no, now is the time for planning your future moves and setting out your goals. The objective of the planets this month is to highlight the duller areas of your life and give you the confidence to make some changes. Remember, this is meant to be a time of planning rather than a time of action, so take your time and don’t do anything hasty. If you’re happy in your relationship now is the perfect time to take a trip and get some distance from other areas of life. If you’re single spend some time with family and remind yourself of what is important in life.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
With Saturn and Mars changing sides in the house of Aquarius this month, you’re going to be faced with some confusing and difficult encounters and situations. The main problem for you in October is one of trust and judgement. You are sometimes easily led and have been known to be taken advantage of because of this. You need to be especially careful that this doesn’t happen over the next few weeks. At work you’re going to have to keep your cards close to your chest until you know who to trust. But it’s in your personal relationships that you could be really facing a tempest of emotions. Someone is going to come into your life with the potential to turn it upside down. It’s hard to say at this point if you should trust this person or not, but some of you will feel such a strong connection to them that the question won’t even arise in your heart. Try to think clearly and employ your head a little. This could be the best thing that ever happened to you, or the worst.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
The power of Venus over Pisces this month will prove very strong and will have you believing you can act on any whim and do as you like without consequence. As Spiderman once noted, with great power comes great responsibility, and the power Venus is giving you in October certainly needs some responsibility to run alongside it. In addition to this you’ll also feel that you can solve any problem and offer the greatest advice of anyone around you. Your confidence and self-assurity this month could well mean this is true, however, you should watch where your attention is being pulled. Whatever else is going on this month, make sure you find time for your girl and those closest to you. This could be your greatest area of responsibility and to neglect it now could prove disastrous for you later.
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
October is a time of change for Aries, and how this manifests itself depends on your reactions to situations. This is mainly down to Saturn’s position and Mars’s strength. The two planets together will be forcing change to sweep through your house this month. From the very beginning of October you should be able to feel where these changes are coming from and how they might affect you. Stay calm and don’t do anything. Your strength is in your knowledge and this will give you the power to act in the right way. The most likely areas of your life this will effect are your work life and your family. If you manage to not react until any changes are definite and concrete, you’ll have gathered your poise and those around you will be amazed at your calm and practical way of dealing with the situation.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
Pluto appears to be the only planet with any real power in the house of Taurus this month. The other plants seem to be going through a lethargic few weeks, and if you’re not careful this could rub off on you. The effects of Pluto will mostly been seen at work, where you’ll find obstacles and distractions could stop you from reaching targets and meeting deadlines. Deal with what comes your way as calmly as possible, but remember to prioritise and keep your sights firming in mind. At home you’re in danger of feeling the lethargy of the other planets and becoming something of a couch potato this month. Push yourself to go and do things, even when you don’t feel like it, and you’ll find your energy levels rise and your mind and body are reinvigorated.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/21
The stand-off between Venus and Saturn this month will force all Geminis to a crossroads in their lives. Saturn is pushing hard with negativity while Venus is fighting back with an outpouring of positive energy. All this will bring some issues to ahead and give you some life changing decisions to make. For some Geminis this will be in the form of a career change, you’ll either be offered a new job or have the opportunity to change career altogether, while for others it will be your personal relationship that’s at tipping point. For those facing the former, employ your head and think clearly through all the pros and cons. The ‘should I stay or should I go’ question is always hard and no one knows the future, but sometimes a leap leads you to the greatest things. For those with issues at home, pay attention squarely to your heart. Your emotional response to problems with your lover is always best listened to.
Cancer 6/22 – 7/22
The curious actions of Jupiter in the house of Cancer this months will have equally curious affects. The positive light Jupiter is shining on you through October will bring new friends and allies, and while this sounds great on the face of it, you should beware. Suspicion isn’t often a positive emotion, but in this case you’d do well to employ a dose of it. Don’t automatically trust these new friends, some are genuine and some are not and until you figure out which is which keep your guard. This will be especially difficult at work as someone has some good advice for you that you’d do well to listen to. If this is either someone you already trust or someone you know has a wealth of experience, do yourself a favour and pay attention. On the other hand if this is someone you barely know, take it with a pinch of salt.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
Life for Leo in October can be split plainly between two planets heading two separate areas. Mercury is overseeing your work life this month and like a tough-love style mentor, will throw you into some alien situations that it believes you can cope with if you just apply yourself. Remember, Mercury is on your side and wants to see you excel. Also remember, you are capable and though it might be daunting at first, you have the ability to succeed in this situation. On the other side of the coin Uranus is going to give you a bumpy ride at home, and this planet isn’t in the mood for love of any kind. The worst thing you can do in regards to your personal relationship this month is be absent. You might feel like walking away at times, but your continued presence is what’s going to see you through the hard times.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
Neptune, the lord of celestial waters, has charge of the house of Virgo in October and it doesn’t look like you should expect a smooth ride. On the plus side, you most likely won’t see stormy waters either, just some choppy tides and a difficult sea. The word to best sum up your month is ‘disappointment’. At work this means you won’t get the results you’ve been hoping for. Also, now is not the time to set up any new deals or contacts or start any new projects. Leave those things till next month when Neptune has moved on. At home you might get so fed up of the constant waves that you start to wonder if it’s worth it. If this is a thought you’ve encountered before and a deeper rooted issue, you may be as well listening to your gut feeling. But if your relationship is important to you, ride the waves and the calmer waters will arrive with the dawn.
