Monthly General Horoscopes - October 2019
There is a passing of the baton between the professional gods in the early days of the month, with Pluto turning direct in your career sector on 3rd October, just a day before Mars leaves your work sector. The timing couldn't be more auspicious, for Mars ends a busy push to get work and job matters up to speed just as the brakes fully come off this professional year. Yet with Saturn in his early weeks in direct motion in your career sector and Pluto at a standstill, where Mars has come in hot and heavy, this shifts more to a slow burn. Just two months before Jupiter's return to your career sector this is a chance to pull back and let things play out. In the meantime, while the planets in your career sector are preparing for his return on 3rd December, Jupiter himself is more focused on making his final two months in an adventurous part of your chart count. Knowing that he is about to team up with Saturn and Pluto for the first time in your career sector in our lifetime and the major implications this will have in 2020, Jupiter is working to create the kind of adventurous momentum that will continue after he's gone. However, adventurous support will continue into the early months of 2020 but not beyond that. Meanwhile, Mars' departure from your work sector will leave behind plenty of momentum on the job front, while allowing his often manic pace to drop back. This will see Mars shift his focus onto your relationships, arriving just a day after Mercury, the planet of communication leaves on 3rd October and just five days before Venus, the planet of love is due to leave. With the solar spotlight always on your relationships at this time of year, Mars' first visit in two years is a chance to go the extra mile. While Mars will stay on, as is the norm for this time of year the Sun, Mercury and Venus will begin turning their focus onto your financial situation and money matters.
There is little danger of life becoming all work and no play when Mars leaves a playful part of your chart and returns to your busy work sector on 4th October, despite the fact that the solar spotlight is already on your work situation, job matters and options. Mars spent the final days of last month at a friendly aspect to Pluto in and adventurous part of your chart, with the planets of war and revolution having come together to declare war on a life that was all work and no play. That Pluto will turn direct during Mars' first full day sends a clear message that he will carry the torch for both of them. However, Mars' return to your work sector for the first time since 2017 does kick off what could be the busiest two months of 2019, with the warrior planet of the cosmos not believing in half measures. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your work sector, so the solar spotlight is always on work and job matters at this time of year. At the same time, while Mercury will leave on 3rd October, a day before Mars returns and Venus six days later, they allow you to start the month with heart and head in the game from the get go. They are the planets that got things moving on the job front last month, but as they leave to focus more on your relationships the Sun and Mars can take over from where they leave off. For Mercury, his return to your relationship sector on 3rd October should be the start of a short 14 to 15 day visit that gives the planet of communication a chance to open the communication lines. Instead, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep Mercury here for two months, with Venus' return on 9th October keeping the planet of love here until early next month. By the time the Sun returns later in the month, Venus and Mercury will once again have given you a head start. In the meantime, with Jupiter moving into his final two months in your financial sector on 3rd October, there is an increasing chance for financial growth and movement.
Saturn and Jupiter are two of the most important planets in the solar system and the planets that largely define the makeup of any given year. Saturn can be seen as the 'brake' and Jupiter as the 'gas'. Saturn holds back and focuses on building firm foundations and on keeping things stable, while Jupiter reaches for the stars and promotes growth. On 3rd December Jupiter and Saturn are due to join forces and this makes Saturn's direct turn last month and Pluto's on 3rd October extremely important. For it is two months later that Jupiter will join them in their home, which is your financial sector. Saturn's direct turn last month ended a five month retrograde phase that was a chance to take care of old financial housekeeping and also to learn from and take responsibility for the past. Two months after Pluto's direct turn on 3rd October, Jupiter will join them to bring the financial growth that they have been preparing for, since December 2017. In the meantime, this gives Jupiter just two more months in your relationship sector and while it won't be until Venus, the planet of love returns early next month that the final phase and the handover will begin, he is already looking to the future. Jupiter received a lot of support from the planets that moved through your communication sector in recent months but now support is coming from the planets in your friendship sector. A Full Moon there on 14th October will create some auspicious conditions for friendship and relationship building. In the meantime, as is always the case at this time of year, the Sun will begin October in a playful part of your chart and end the month in your busy work sector. This always makes a balance between work and play important at this time of year. For as is often the case, there is no clear dividing line when the focus shifts from playful to busy and in fact that won't happen at all. Mercury is the first planet to return to your busy work sector on 3rd October, followed by Venus six days later and the Sun three weeks later. However, Mars' return to a playful part of your chart on 4th October will make a balance between work and play mandatory all month.
Having Saturn in Capricorn, your opposing sign can be challenging and not just for you but for your relationships as well. That was especially so during the middle months of the year, when a parade of planets moving through Cancer all faced an opposition with not only Saturn in your relationship sector but Pluto as well. Added to this is the fact that you have the lunar nodes policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs all year. This was further compounded by a pair of eclipses during your birthday month. Until Saturn turned direct last month it was hard to move on from those months, with Saturn's job being to make sure you first learnt from them. By the time Pluto turns direct on 3rd October Jupiter is just two months away, which is when both the personal and the relationship boot camp of the last few years will prove its worth. In the meantime, with Mars not leaving your communication sector until 4th October, you begin the month with the means to ensure the communication lines are open from the get go. It was Mars friendly alliance with Pluto late last month that has allowed the planets of war and revolution to declare war on any remaining communication barriers. It is then that Mars will turn his focus onto home and family matters for the first time in two years, but also at the point in any year when this is where the Sun is focused. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your home and family sector, with Mars returning with the energy, drive and enthusiasm to make things happen and get things done. This will free Venus and Mercury to move on, with Mercury returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 3rd October and Venus six days later. Mercury will like it here so much that instead of moving through in 14 to 15 days, as he normally would, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep him here for two months.
While there is no danger of life becoming all work and no play, in terms of the big picture this is where the trend is going. This is a big month for both Saturn and Pluto in your work sector but also for Jupiter, in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. The fact that Saturn and Pluto have come to a standstill and Jupiter is speeding up means that the gap between them is literally closing by the day. On 3rd December, two months after Pluto's direct turn on 3rd October, Jupiter will join him and Saturn for the first time in your work sector in our lifetime. Because the tide is just now turning on the job front and both Saturn and Pluto are barely moving, while the lights have turned green there is no urgency. This gives you two months to find your feet before Jupiter returns to capitalise on everything you have been preparing for, for the last two years. This does however create urgency on the playful front and especially when it comes to matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. However, with Venus returning early next month and Mars keeping the playful and creative torch burning into the early months of 2020, it is still relatively easy to find a balance between work and play. In the meantime, the faster moving planets are dividing their time between a focus on communication and on home and family matters, as is always the case at this time of year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your communication sector, before turning the solar spotlight onto home and family matters. While Mercury and Venus will make that shift earlier in the month, not before starting the month with the planets of communication and love working together to ensure the communication lines are open.
While your birthday month ended eight days before moving into the new month, until Mars leaves Virgo on 4th October setting this new solar year onto the right path is still a work in progress. Knowing that he won't be back until 2021, Mars wants to leave you with something to strive for, with your passions and fighting spirit fuelled and aware of what excites you. The Sun, Venus and Mercury may have left you with a game plan, wish list and resolutions for this new solar year, but Mars provides the motivation to walk the talk. It is on 4th October that Mars will join the Sun and Venus in your income sector, a day after Mercury leaves. The same energy, passion and warrior spirit Mars has applied to the launch of your new solar year, the warrior planet of the cosmos will now channel into income matters, giving you the confidence to fight for what you deserve. This is not just about the money, with Mars firing up your warrior spirit when it comes to the things that you deserve across all the currencies in your life. Mercury will leave you with a smart head for money, while until she leaves on 9th October Venus will continue to fuel your confidence, while keeping the laws of attraction in effect. It is then that Venus will join Mercury in your communication sector, where as the planets of love and communication they give the communication lines a boost. While Mercury will focus on communication across the board, Venus will focus on giving your heart and your relationships a voice. This is a chance for some rebuilding, after all the planets that moved through Virgo over recent months, put some pressure on your relationships. Mercury, who will normally spend 14 to 15 days in your communication sector each year is especially committed to this, with a retrograde turn at the end of the month keeping him here for two months.
Whether you are a September or an October born Libran, this is your birthday month and even by the time you reach 24th October and the Sun is gone, you are unlikely to notice the difference. That is despite the fact that with Venus and Mercury already gone from Libra by then, this should bring all planetary activity for the year to a close. You can thank Mars for that, with his return to Libra on 4th October not only firing up your birthday month but keeping the momentum going long after the Sun moves on. Regardless of when your birthday falls or even if you had your birthday last month, you will get an additional surge when Mars follows in his footsteps. With Mars not leaving Libra until mid November, even after your birthday month is over he will still be firing up your drives, passions and enthusiasm, continuing to give you access to new opportunities and to explore anything that excites you. While Mars continues to fire things up personally, this frees the other planets up to focus on new income potential. It begins with Mercury's return to your income sector on 3rd October and continues with Venus' return six days later and the Sun's return three weeks later. As the planet of money and the planet that rules through the laws of attraction, Venus' return often kicks off the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year. Mercury will normally spend 14 to 15 days in your income sector, giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and maximise income potential. Instead, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep Mercury here for two months. Throughout that time, all the planets moving through your income sector and that includes Mars, when he returns next month, will draw on the built in support from forces on the job and career fronts. Meanwhile, a Full Moon in your relationship sector on 14th October will come with built in support from Jupiter in your communication sector.
October will always begin on a quiet note for you, with the wind down of your old solar year always beginning towards the end of September then continuing through the first three weeks of October. Wherever you are in the world and in whatever time zone, the Sun will have completed its move into Scorpio by 24th October. However, as is often the case, the lines between the past, present and future are blurred and will remain blurred for the majority of the month. That blurring of the lines begins with Mercury's departure from a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on 3rd October, leaving the Sun and Venus behind as he returns to Scorpio. Venus will make that same move six days later, with heart and mind starting to look to the future while your old solar year is still playing out. Yet even when the Sun does return to Scorpio that need for reflection will continue, with Mars beginning the nearly seven week wind down of your current Mars cycle on 4th October. As Mars joins forces with the Sun to close old doors, Venus and Mercury will begin looking to the future. Venus will spend the rest of the month in Scorpio and as the planet of love she will have fun working with dreamy Neptune, in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. Mercury, who normally spends 14 to 15 days in Scorpio will instead spend two months here, thanks to a retrograde turn at the end of the month. This gives you plenty of time to work on your choices, decisions and plans for your new solar year. In the meantime, a Full Moon in your work sector on 14th October comes just as Jupiter is looking to make the most of his final two weeks in your income sector. This could create unexpected potential or opportunities on the income and job fronts.
Moving into October is akin to moving into the home straight, with the final three months of 2019 now stretching out in front of us. However, for you this is personal and it is less that you are looking out over the final three months of 2019 and more that you are all of a sudden looking out over Jupiter's final two months in Sagittarius. Jupiter returned last November to begin a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, with the first 13 months spent in Sagittarius, laying down foundations and creating the pathways for new beginnings, projects and journeys. Due to leave on 3rd December, as Jupiter moves into his final two months you are moving into the home straight of this foundation year. Yet at the same time, this is also drawing you closer to Jupiter's return to your income sector, with Pluto's direct turn there on 3rd October turning the lights green and the welcome light on the porch on, in order to welcome Jupiter in. It is when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto meet up in your income sector in December that this will begin the most powerful year on the income front ever. This makes starting the month with Mars still in your career sector important, for until leaving on 4th October his mission is to create as much professional momentum as possible. While the faster moving planets will catch up with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto later in the year, first as they begin returning to Sagittarius next month and then eventually to your income sector, for now they begin the more immediate job of bringing this current solar year home or will by the end of the month. The Sun, Mercury and Venus begin the month in your friendship sector, with Mars returning on 4th October. This brings you to the most socially and team focused point in the year. However, starting with Mercury on 3rd October, Venus six days later and the Sun three weeks later, they will begin returning to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart to wind down first your current Mercury and Venus cycle and then this current solar year.
This is a massively important month for you, with what began with Saturn's direct turn in Capricorn last month, completing with Pluto's direct turn here on 3rd October. You begin the month with Saturn in his early weeks in direct and Pluto his final days in retrograde motion, so with one eye on the rear view mirror and another on the road ahead. Saturn's direct turn was the most significant, for this marked the end of five months spent revisiting the past in a way that was focused on learning experiences and on taking responsibility. For Pluto, in Capricorn since 2008, this is more an annual chance to look back on how you can change things up. The timing of Pluto's direct turn is significant, for this will shift all your focus onto the future exactly two months to the day before Jupiter will return to Capricorn, on 3rd December. This is what you have been preparing for since Saturn's return in December 2017, preparing for the major new growth and opportunities Jupiter will begin. This also marks Jupiter's entry into not only his final two months in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart but of a 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion that began back in 2007. This is the point where you not only turn to face the future but find that the future you have been moving towards for years, is now in front of you. In the meantime, on a more mundane and day to day level there is a growing professional slide, as Mars joins the Sun and Venus in your career sector on 4th October. Starting the month in an adventurous part of your chart, Mars will be doing his best in the early days of the month, to ensure his passion for adventure is established and will continue after he leaves. Once Mars returns to your career sector he is here until mid November, returning to not find only planets already in your career sector but support from forces on the income and job front, this is when the push to bring this professional year home will begin.
As is always the case at this time of year, there is a slide from the adventurous to the professional side of life and there is never a clear cut divide between the two. The Sun will always begin October in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery but end the month in your career sector but while his shift from one to the other is abrupt nothing else is. That is because while Venus and Mercury travel close to the Sun they will often be just ahead or just behind, so a focus on career matters can begin before the solar spotlight shifts and an adventurous focus can continue afterwards. And that is exactly what is happening this month. Mercury is the first planet to make the shift, leaving an adventurous part of your chart and returning to your career sector on 3rd October, followed by Venus six days later and the Sun three weeks later. This is what a typical year looks like and in a typical year, by the time we get to 24th October, with the Sun gone there will be no more adventurous energy in play and it will be all about having your professional hat on. However, this is where this year differs from the norm, with Mars' return to an adventurous part of your chart on 4th October keeping him here until mid November. This works to your advantage, for in a month that will see growing developments and opportunities unfold across the income, work and career fronts, this will ensure that life doesn't become all work and no play. This is also an important month for friendship and social networking in general, with Jupiter moving into his final two months in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on 3rd October. A Full Moon in your communication sector on 14th October has a friendly connection with Jupiter, making the days leading up to this especially good for talks and communication across the board.
There is always some tension between income and money matters at this time of year, as a new focus on your financial situation and money matters has to muscle its way into what is an entrenched focus on income matters. Unlike the Sun's focus on your financial situation and money matters at this time every year, where the focus is more on what you do with the money you have, your income sector is active all year and has become used to not having to share its toys. If you do find that financial tensions rise, especially around the time of a Full Moon in your income sector on 14th October, look at where income and money matters are fighting for your attention and how to better balance the two. In the meantime, with Jupiter moving into his final two months in your career sector on 3rd October and the professional pace starting to pick up, the Full Moon in your income sector could be an exciting trigger point for income and career matters. While moving through your income sector the Moon will also oppose Mars, who returns for his first visit to your financial sector in two years, on 4th October. This will add fuel to his financial passions and fighting spirit and his mission to see you take your financial power back. This means that where there is any financial tension this month you are likely to find that this very quickly turns to motivation across the income, financial and professional fronts. Meanwhile, just when it appears that life is all about having your money and professional hats on, there is some light relief in the form of Mercury's return to an adventurous part of your chart on 3rd October, followed by Venus' return six days later. Mercury will like what he sees so much that instead of spending the 14 to 15 days he would normally spend in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery each year, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep him here for two months. Along with the North Node in a playful part of your chart, this should ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.
