October brings a positive mood change with Mercury’s entry into Libra. As Jupiter is now in Libra, this double extends negotiations, agreements and partnerships. Across the planet there is a tendency to look for employees in the same area of operation. Nobody works alone. This reflects the negotiations between countries. Discussions should search for points of agreement, as Saturn and Lunar Node form a Quadrature. This aspect hardens trade relations and, in some countries, we will see the option to work individually. He who works well in Libra, talks, negotiates, facilitates and builds bridges achieves good results. This month we have strong collections in our lives. The Lunar Node refers to our obligations on the Planet. Saturn is the great collector of debts. Ideally fulfil your social and professional obligations before Saturn passes though, charging. There will always be the feeling that we do not get what we wanted or that the goals have been met by half.
The Full Moon in Aries, on 16th of October, brings opportunities for sudden changes in choices. Everyone can find a new way and there is an explosive and revolutionary tone for proximity to Uranus. We returned to the social confrontations that mark our planet since 2015. The greatest care should be on the 19th, when Mars and Pluto are in Capricorn and set opposite the Moon forming the scenario for shocking events. It is an opportunity for all people to transform the way of acting or a sharp separation between parties who do not get together again until 2024. We can walk to the transformation or destruction. Countries that are great negotiators of peace must act with importance at this stage. It is a month with prosperity for those who accept changes. Those who cling to old concepts suffer most from the effects of the global economic crisis. Places benefited for business this month: United States, South Africa, Australia, Brazil, Switzerland, Mexico, Uruguay, Greece, Turkey and Nicaragua.
Police officers are subject to conflicts in various parts of the Planet, especially among the 18th, 19th and 20th of October. Points of the Planet with a chance of major conflict: Washington DC, the United Kingdom, Haiti, India, Cuba, Angola and Bulgaria.
PISCES Feb 19-March 20
Venus shifts your professional life, especially after the 18th. Friends and colleagues will bring new proposals and challenges. It’s time to embrace these projects, even if they involve travelling and changing of locations, even countries. The foreign sector calls your attention. Finances are ok, but you will find a way to change that, even if it means having to do something you’ve never done before. Mars is shaking up the ways you earn money. Professionals who work with you will realize you are able to speed up processes and avoid unnecessary spending. This was a lesson that you learned in 2015. You also learned to streamline your budget and now use it for the benefit of the group. Your health is stable but the suggestion for a detox is still valid. Love remains the same, nothing very new because the focus is all on you career sector.
AQUARIUS Jan 20-Feb 18
October is conducive to studying and travelling. You are interested in new knowledge and are attracted by other countries. Foreign love affairs beckon. Your career will benefit. There is an increase of power and status, and the mists that veiled your job sector are now dispelled, and you regain focus on your professional goals. Your family also goes through a good time and cooperation is mutual. Spousal support for family facilitates this growth. You must be attentive to details because many events will occur discretely, bringing good opportunities that can come through friends who have contacts abroad or through new studies that take up your routine. Despite the excess of work, you will have a fun month and your health will remain balanced.
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 19
Expect poor health in October, Capricorn. You feel exhausted, almost a marathon runner at the finish line. It’s time to take care of what you eat, your kidneys and colon. Pay close attention to your diet and rest a lot. You regain power after the 22nd, when it feels that things are back to normal. Until then, you fight for professional growth, but receive only praise. There may be a promotion at work that does not result in wage increases. It is a test for your patience. This month will see a lot of responsibility and hours of hard work. Financially, it does not have the desired return. Still, your ethics and perseverance will be taken into account in the coming months. A good solution is take the focus off yourself and try to do something that benefits the large group. Philanthropy balances the sense of injustice.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22-Dec 21
Money comes easily for you this month, Sagittarian. Saturn is pressing this sector and you have good opportunities for employment and expansion of earnings. Circulating through new social groups and new institutions brings professional and personal benefits. Your social life plays a role in maintaining this new status you get. Jupiter collaborates for release in December, so now is preparation time. You must arrange your life so that at the time of decision making, nothing is late or disturbs your search for knowledge and new projects. Studying is important these next two months. There is some interest in spiritual studies, foreign languages and also the practice of new software to facilitate work. Love goes through good phase and singles have new opportunities. Health asks only for balance.
SCORPIO Oct 23-Nov 21
October promises financial and emotional growth. Finally, the stars look at you with favour. Venus brings beauty, charm and sensuality. All doors open easily, since your brightness is exalted. After the 18th, Venus again collaborates and activates your finances. It’s time to find a new job or expand the operations of a current job. Enjoy the time between the 18th and 20th and invest in an interview for a new company. All the focus is on you and you may be called selfish, but it does not affect you. Grow and take people with you as you go. Then they will realize that you had a bigger plan. Spiritually, you will have strong insights and receive multiple messages through dreams and astral unfoldings – pay attention. Do not fear. Take advantage of these messages to gather information.
LIBRA Sept 23-Oct 22
You feel a great difficulty in expressing your feelings in October. Mars is in Capricorn. You can love intensely, but feel it’s still gone cold in this sector. In terms of finances, everything is already perfect. You have help from Jupiter and in the last week, the sun is warming your earnings. It’s a prosperous time to hone your talents and use the money intelligently to generate months of growth. Your mind is connected with everything that is new and transformative. Use this ability to take charge of your life and change your work or personal life. People will accept your ideas and see you as an intellectual guide. Take this moment to be a teacher to other signs and help them to see a wider world. Balance your diet and you will have a month of prime health.
VIRGO Aug 23-Sept 22
Health is good, just keep the balance between work and rest. Love goes through a confused phase and Neptune asks that no decision be taken now. Marrying or separating this month is not suitable for you. You and your loved one go through a period when opinions differ. After the 17th, you turn to your career again. Risk new forms of entrepreneurship and make some money. It is your style to seek perfection but be assured that what has to be changed, will be changed. You want the best and will search for it with good financial results. In addition to Jupiter’s help, you will have the Moon working with the financial sector. It’s a good time to move investments and property that generate profit. Buying and selling real estate can bring extra money, even if this is not your profession. Success comes after the 22nd.
LEO July 23-Aug 22
Leos should now seek intellectual improvement. New ways to do your duties and smarter ways to reach prosperity come up this month. October is stable, with no major surprises, but the search for knowledge is essential for growth in the future. Balancing your home is the ultimate goal. With your house in order and the family at peace, you feel harmonized and can work and conquer new territories in the future. Your emotions are fundamental to the work flow. Leisure, rest, diet and meditation are the foundations for you to have good ideas. Love goes through a resting phase and singles are less aggressive in their achievements. Jupiter benefits sales and marketing careers, advertisers, journalists, teachers, trainers and writers.
CANCER June 21-July 22
Creativity and activities from home are strong. Jupiter expands your family, be it with the arrival of babies or financial favours. You see your family group thriving and grow with them. Those who work with investments and sales go through a great month. In general, all financial speculation brings return in October to your sign. A new job may appear and be related to children or services for them. Leisure and entertainment also generate money. Longer trips are not indicated. Your family can move to another country or city, but it will be done with the whole group. The weakness of the month is your health. You feel profound fatigue by 23rd and should include massages and rest. Love is for the married, in the privacy of the home. Singles do not risk much.
GEMINI May 21-June 20
Last month’s eclipse affects your professional life during this month. A new job may arise, or uncertainties may come up where you currently work. Let time work out the situation. The biggest challenge now is to nurture your social network. Your friends and work partners collaborate and guide your career path. You are not the main focus this month. Pass the month as a minor player, but do not miss opportunities in doing so. Include in your routine the habit of sharing and give room for others to shine in your environment. You grow this month through other people. Your health improves a lot and the month is fun with new loves and lots of sensuality. Jupiter collaborates with your travels, adventures and expands your creativity in work and personal life.
TAURUS April 20-May 20
This is a month with great financial opportunities. You grow at work and are able to merge friendships and business. This may indicate a new partnership. Your personal life undergoes changes, especially among friends. Some show themselves to be unfaithful and it is time to pluck out those who are bringing you down. Love goes through great time with a lot of sensuality and warm romance. Singles go for a more aggressive approach and choose a partner to match. The family goes through good times and mutual aid makes your days happier. Close to the 18th, you feel the pressure that comes from work and it affects your body. Improve your diet and pay attention to your bowels. Health is balanced, but rest is the key to keeping your body healthy. The month is active and everything you need is available.
ARIES March 21-April 19
A prosperous month after the 18th. Until then, open space for organizing projects and paying old debts. You will see the return of money and also feel overworked. Your body needs care and the kidneys are vulnerable. Take care! Jupiter expands its professional and affective partnerships. A love can occur and be overpowering. Your sex life is more hectic and your body can ask for rest. Spiritually, you go through dramas from the Eclipse in September. You are reorganizing your beliefs and should let truths appear naturally. Your focus should be on looking for people who are aligned with their projects and with them, you can develop excellent work projects or build a new partnership. Trips are welcome, for leisure or work.
