Monthly Career Horoscopes - October 2019
The month gets off to a curious start in that you have one foot on the brake and another on the gas, but with a huge amount of confidence, excitement and anticipation on both the job and career fronts. With Mars leaving your work sector on 4th October and the Sun, Venus and Mercury having all left last month, the warrior planet of the cosmos is coming in hot and heavy, with the early days of the month likely to be busy and even frenetic. You can expect Tuesday 1st October through to Friday 4th October to be busy, as Mars urges you to put everything you have into everything you do. Not only will Mars not be back until 2021, apart from the asteroid Juno this will end all planetary activity on the job front for 2019. It is on the job front that you begin the month with your foot on the gas. However, you also begin the month with Saturn in his early weeks in direct motion in your career sector and Pluto at a standstill, as he prepares for his direct turn on 3rd October. That Pluto will turn direct during Mars' last full day in your work sector will ensure both sides benefit. It was in the second half of last month that Mars and Pluto moved into a friendly aspect, with the planets of war and revolution coming together to fire up a sense of what's possible on the job and career fronts. Apart from turning all the lights green across the professional front with his direct turn on 3rd October, Pluto also marks an important milestone. It is exactly two months later that Jupiter will return to your career sector, joining Pluto and Saturn here for the first time in our lifetime. With Saturn and Pluto both barely moving, this gives you two months to prepare for one of the most significant professional events ever, which will grow into a movement in 2020. To have Mars in his final 24 hours in your work sector as you turn that corner in the home straight will give your whole professional game a shot of adrenaline. However, his departure on 4th October will also bring a chance to catch your breath and move into the slow lane.
The focus is always on work and job matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your work sector, always has and always will. Starting the month with Venus and Mercury here and therefore with heart and mind in the game and on the same page is not a given, but it is not uncommon. Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, but often lag behind or get out in front. This year Venus and Mercury returned just over a week before the Sun, not only giving you a head and a heart start, but in a way that will see them spend less time here this month. Mercury will leave on 3rd October, though not before giving you the intellectually savvy edge that will allow you to continue to keep your head in the game and to work smarter. Venus will spend another six days after Mercury leaves, fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. This means that Venus will be here when Mars returns on 4th October, with the warrior planet of the cosmos returning for the first time since 2017. By 24th October the Sun, Venus and Mercury will be gone and this is the point where all planetary activity on the job front for the year should run its course. Instead, by then Mars will just be getting started and benefiting from the more mundane housekeeping the Sun focuses on at this time every year, he will be ready to take the helm and play things his way. Mars will stay on for another four weeks after the Sun leaves and will continue to fire things up on the job front through to mid November. Mars' return will usher in the busiest seven weeks of 2019, with the warrior planet of the cosmos an energy that not only fuels your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit but the drive, energy and motivation to make things happen. Make the most of a relatively controlled start to the month, with things about to become a lot busier.
Because the Sun will always end October in your work sector, it is a given that no matter what the rest of the professional year has delivered, this is when new job developments will open up. However, long before the Sun's return and before the solar spotlight is on your work situation, job matters and options, which it will be by 24th October, things start to move. There is a case for saying that they have already started to move, with the asteroid Pallas having returned in late August. As an asteroid Pallas Athena can't make things happen in the way that a planet can. However, Pallas returned to find the North Node in your income sector and Neptune in your career sector and after a Full Moon on the career front last month, there should at least be a boost in job confidence and anticipation. The first signs of real movement on the job front will come with Mercury's return to your work sector on 3rd October and this is when Pallas' presence will be an advantage. As the goddess of wisdom, Pallas has been quietly working behind the scenes, helping you to do your homework and learn as much as possible, ready to hit the ground running when the planets begin arriving. Venus will return six days later and with the Sun still two weeks away by then, this is a chance for heart and mind to come together. Surprisingly both will remain here for the rest of the month, especially in Mercury's case. Normally here for just 14 to 15 days, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep Mercury here until December, keeping your head in the game until Mars returns next month. With Mars here until the New Year, the new beginnings early this month will take until January to fully play out.
Despite the fact that there might be some work/life balance reminders this month, they are the right reminders at the right time. Professionally not a lot has changed and to begin with, it is business as usual. Eris and Chiron are both still in retrograde motion in your career sector and will remain in retrograde motion until the New Year. At the same time Jupiter, now in his second month in direct motion, continues to pick up and speed and momentum. This is what makes this month's work/life balance reminders important. When he turned direct in your work sector in August, Jupiter turned the lights green but having come to a standstill and especially after four months in retrograde motion, he wasn't going anywhere. Since then Jupiter has been slowly and exponentially picking up speed, so slowly that we don't really notice it but over time, literally creeping up on you. On 3rd October Jupiter will move into his final two months and while it is not until the Sun and Venus return next month that the push to bring things home will begin, already the pace is picking up. Right now, the planets that will not only make Jupiter's final weeks in your work sector the most expansive and opportune but will continue to exploit that potential through to the early months of 2020, are turning their focus onto your home and family life. It is their clashes with both planets in your career sector that will bring work/life balance reminders. This is a reminder to pace yourself, just as the pace is picking up on the job front. In the meantime, a Full Moon in your career sector on 14th October will not only bring career matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point but will give Jupiter and job matters a boost as well. By this point Jupiter will be moving into his final seven weeks and will feed off the energy of this Full Moon.
Despite the fact that out of the three planets spread out across your two professional houses two are in retrograde motion and the other is barely moving, there is a new sense of excitement and anticipation, especially on the job front. Uranus, in retrograde motion in your career sector since August and still in the first of a seven year visit, won't turn direct until the New Year. Spending the rest of 2019 in retrograde motion, Uranus is the backstop, providing strong professional support and a lot of 20/20 hindsight, but without taking energy away from work and job matters. For it is on the job front that things are starting to move. Saturn has only been in direct motion in your work sector for 12 days by the time you move into the new month and with Pluto in his final days in retrograde motion, neither are moving. However, everything about Pluto's direct turn on 3rd October is significant and especially the date itself. In practical terms, Pluto's direct turn will turn all the lights green on the job front and will put all the focus on the road ahead and on where you are going. Turning direct during Mars' last full day in your income sector, the planets of war and revolution will feed off each other, with a surge in motivation and confidence on both fronts. However, why 3rd October is such a significant date is that it is exactly two months later that lucky Jupiter will return to your work sector, on 3rd December. This is the first and only time that Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto have or will meet up here in our lifetime and this will have major implications throughout 2020. From Pluto's direct turn he and Saturn have exactly two months to prepare for Jupiter's return and the explosion of potential this will create. It will take that long for Saturn and Pluto to get back to full speed again, but the future you turn to the face on 3rd October is beyond exciting. This is what you have been building and preparing for since Saturn's return in December 2017.
While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses this month, it would be rare if there was any. This is a point in any professional year when all the planetary activity on the job and career fronts is over and it is more about working with the momentum already created. Last year was the exception, when Mars not only made his first visit in two years but a retrograde phase saw him return for a six week visit in May but not leave until November. A lot of what has and continues to transpire on the job front this year is still a result of that. By late March the last planet had left your work sector and by early July the last planet had left your career sector. However, this does not mean that nothing is happening professionally for not only is there plenty of momentum on both fronts, which the Moon is able to tap into when it makes its monthly visits, the focus is now on the money. It began with the Sun, Mercury and Venus' return to your income sector in the second half of last month but will really hit its stride with Mars' return on 4th October. As mentioned, much of what is transpiring on the job front this year is a result of the months Mars spent in your work sector last year, so he will be keen to exploit the income potential from what he began last year. Because this is a potentially lucrative month, this makes the Moon's monthly visits to your two professional houses even more important. As well as their own agenda, the Moon's visit to both will put them at a friendly aspect to the planets in your income sector, linking them with the professional potential already banked. You will have your first taste of this when the Moon makes its monthly visit to your work sector from 7th October to 10th October. This is during Mars' early days in your income sector and will ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters when Venus leaves on 9th October. You will have a chance to check in professionally when the Moon moves through your career sector from 17th October to 19th October.
When it comes to the activity on the professional front this month you are right in the Goldilocks zone, where things are not too hot, not too cold and are just right. After last month's Full Moon in your work sector, things have settled back on the job front and ahead of his direct turn here next month, Neptune is slowing down and is taking it easy. While still focused on the past, second chances and untapped job potential, Neptune is also preparing for next month's turnaround. Needing to come to a standstill ahead of his direct turn next month, Neptune has the brakes on. There could be some excitement on the job front when the Moon moves through from 10th October to 12th October. This is when the Moon will come full circle from last month's Full Moon in your work sector and this is when what is triggered on a Full Moon often comes to completion. This could see some unexpected developments on the job front or things that have been up in the air become more certain. In the meantime, while Neptune is watching over things on the job front, the North Node is watching over things on the career front and in particular, is watching over a sense of professional direction which it is its job to maintain and update. Neither the North Node or Neptune are calling too much attention to themselves, but they are standing guard over job and career matters. What makes the difference this month is the return of the faster moving planets to your income sector. As well as kicking off the most potentially lucrative months of 2019, each planet moving through your income sector will at some point move into a friendly aspect to the North Node on the career and Neptune on the job front. This planetary activity will still be playing out when Neptune turns direct next month. From the moment the first planet returns to your income sector on 3rd October this will create positive dynamics across the income, work and career fronts and it will stay that way for the rest of the year.
When the last planet left your career sector at the end of August, this wrapped up the busiest months of this year, the engine room of everything that will transpire for the rest of this professional year. Because there is year round planetary activity on the job front, has been for decades and will be for decades to come, you will never experience what many of your cosmic mates do, which is vast stretches of the year with no planetary activity in your work sector. However, you can't be at the cutting edge all the time because periods of planetary activity are designed to get as many options on the table as possible, which you can work on once they move on. This is what's happening now on the career front. Work and job matters are a different story and while they got a lot of new energy in the first half of the year, with both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion, they are in review mode. However, in retrograde motion this means that the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. A Full Moon in your work sector on 14th October could give you better access to that but is often the point when things brewing for months can come to a head, turning and/or tipping point. With the Moon in your work sector from 12th October to 15th October, this gives you time in the lead up to the Full Moon, to get a sense of what is building or coming to a head. A Full Moon is also an opposition between the Sun and Moon and this particular Full Moon will always fall at some point during the month long wind down of your current solar year, when there is a greater need for time to hear yourself think. With other planets in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart all month, including Mars from 4th October, there will be constant reminders to pace yourself. Throughout the month you will need to know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
The majority of the professional action is in the early part of the month and with Mars leaving your career sector on Friday 4th October, you start the month in the fast lane. This is Mars first visit to your career sector since 2017 and once he leaves he won't be back until 2021, so will be working to make every remaining moment count. As well as fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and giving you the confidence to take your professional power back, Mars is a planet of action. Mars knows that if you put everything you have into everything you do and leave it all on the table, you will have months to explore and exploit what this has generated. After the Sun, Venus and Mercury left your career sector last month, Mars' departure on 4th October should bring all planetary activity here to an end. However, while they do to a certain degree, though not without leaving the rest of this professional year with more than enough momentum, they don't dial back completely. Uranus, in the first of a seven year visit to your work sector is still here but in retrograde motion until the New Year, is not pushing for anything new and is instead focused on making work and job matters the permanent and stable backdrop. At the same time, the asteroid Juno will remain in your career sector until early next month, giving you the best of both worlds. As an asteroid, Juno is not going to maintain Mars' hectic pace, but as the queen of commitment she will keep you focused, making it easier to maintain the momentum created over the last few months. Juno will also remain a support for Saturn and Pluto in your income sector, just as the whole tide is turning on the income front and as the lead up to lucky Jupiter's return begins. Juno will also maintain that thread that is connecting forces across the income, work and career fronts. In the meantime, the Moon will bring a chance to check in on work and job matters from 15th October to 17th October and on career matters from 24th October to 26th October.
This is always a highpoint in any professional year and with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your career sector, this is always when the solar spotlight is on your career and professional situation, matters and options. This year you have a mix of the expected and the unexpected. The expected is to have the Sun here for the first three weeks of October and to start the month with Venus and Mercury here as well. While they don't always return at exactly the same time as the Sun, Venus and Mercury will always show up close enough to put heart and mind on the same page and in the game. Until he leaves on 3rd October Mercury is giving you the intellectually savvy edge needed to keep your head in the game and to make choices, decisions and plans. Until she leaves six days later, as the planet of money Venus will wear two hats as she works to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. What is not expected is Mars' return on 4th October, with the warrior planet of the cosmos making his first visit to your career sector in two years. Mars will stay on after the Sun leaves and until leaving in mid November will create some of the most exciting professional conditions since 2017. During his time here Mars will do more than fuel your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and give you the confidence to take your professional power back. Mars is a planet of action and a planet that is not here to waste time wishful thinking. Because Mercury leaves a day before Mars returns you will have at least the makings of a game plan, while Venus will still be working on your professional wish list in his early days. Mars will take that game plan and wish list and turn them into a call for action. Mars never puts anything in the 'too hard' basket so will spend the rest of the month encouraging you to put everything you have into everything you do.
That this is a big month for not only career and professional matters but across the income, work and career fronts should come as no surprise. After all, the Sun will always end October in your career sector and you already have a window into the forces in play on the income and job front, but not to the degree you are about to experience this month. This will begin with Mercury's return to your career sector on 3rd October, three weeks before the Sun will turn the solar spotlight onto your work situation and job matters. While Mercury returns at around this time every year, as will be the case for every planet following in his footsteps, for the first time in 17 years it will be to find the North Node in your work sector. While this is an unfamiliar experience for the planets returning to your career sector, this is not an unfamiliar force. When the faster planets, the same returning to your career sector this month and over the coming months, moved through your work sector in the middle months of the year they all aligned with the North Node there. The planets returning to your career sector have already spent time intimately engaged with the North Node, the force behind July's total solar eclipse and behind another eclipse there in January. Because that relationship is already established, as each planet returns to your career sector it will be to immediately slip into the energy already created on the job front just a few months ago. The same is the case with Neptune in your income sector, who the faster planets all moved into a friendly aspect to as they moved through your work sector in the middle months of the year. As things start to move on the career front, beginning with Mercury's return on 3rd October and followed by Venus' return six days later and the Sun's three weeks later, it will be to find a built in support system from the get go. No wonder Mercury, who will normally move through in 14 to 15 days will instead stay for two months, due to a retrograde turn at the end of the month. Mars' return next month will keep things in play through to the New Year.
In every sense of the word, September was a chance to regroup. It was in the final days of August that the last of a long and very busy parade of planets through your work sector left, with the whole of last month a chance to process all the developments, package them into a game plan and to look at where to from here. It was in August that Jupiter turned direct in your career sector, with September a month that gave this giant planet a chance to get his bearings and while he was looking to the future, he was in no hurry to reach out to grab it. As you move into October that month of adjustment and of letting things settle is over and with Jupiter moving into his final two months on 3rd October, he is ready to bring things home. The pace is naturally increasing on the career front but because it is increasing gradually and exponentially you might not notice it. For now, because most things will start coming together when Venus returns to your career sector early next month, it is still more about moving forward in the right direction and that you are building towards something. Even if you are not sure what that something is. This makes the Moon's return to your career sector this month a vital chance to check in and test the water. The Moon will visit twice this month and this gives you a better chance to mark your progress from the start to the end of the month. The Moon will return from 3rd October to 5th October, with a chance to get your bearings in the early days of the month. As always, the Moon will fuel your professional instincts and imagination, while an alignment with Jupiter is a chance to check in with the planet that is the driving force here. The Moon will return on 30th October, where it will see out the month. In the meantime, a Full Moon on 14th October will fall at a friendly aspect to Jupiter so could trigger exciting developments on the income and professional fronts. This works two ways, for with the planets in your income sector under pressure from planets on the financial front, this can turn any financial tension into both financial and professional motivation.
