Monthly Career Horoscopes - October 2018
Things dial back a bit professionally this month and this is just what you need. The Sun and Mercury only left your work sector late last month, wrapping up a busy three months on the job front. While all the planetary activity is now over for the year, there is plenty of momentum and traction, but without the need to have your work hat on 24/7. With Saturn in his first full month in direct motion in your career sector and Pluto turning direct on the 1st October, the brakes come off your professional year, but don't expect things to rush forward. Both Saturn and Pluto are in this for the long haul and with both well supported, especially by Uranus in your income sector, there is no urgency. Instead, with a busy three months on the job front having just run its course, this is a chance to regroup. As Pluto turns direct this is a chance to not only turn all your attention onto the future, but to slowly start moving things forward. Yet there is no hurry, with the Moon's visits to your work and career sectors creating some of the most important days of the month. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 6th October to the 8th October. Coming full circle from last month's New Moon, this first visit since the Sun and Mercury left is a valuable chance to regroup. The same will be the case when the Moon returns to your career sector from the 15th October to the 17th October, with the first visit since Pluto's direct turn a chance to check in. In both visits, the Moon has the ability to not only sharpen your instincts and bring valuable clues, hunches and insights, but to trigger developments.
October is always a busy month for you, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your work sector. However, there is a more relaxed feel and a lot less pressure than last year, while at the same time you're likely to be a lot more driven professionally. For while the Sun returns to your work sector at this time every year, for the first time in three decades, Mars is in your career sector at the same time. Having returned in May for what should have been a six week visit, in his last full month Mars is finally ready to bring things home. It is opportune that the Sun and Mercury are able to draw on Mars' professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit to give work and job matters a push, while he is able to draw support from them. Mercury is only in your work sector until the 10th October, making it important to have your head in the game from the get go. Yet a New Moon in his final hours will also make the 10th October an important day for new beginnings and for making choices, decisions and plans. While the Sun will leave on the 24th October, work and job matters will continue to evolve. In fact, with Venus retrograding back in for a double dip visit to your work sector on the 1st November and Mars not leaving your career sector until the 16th November, it is next month when everything will come together. Until then this is still a work in progress, with even the potential for unexpected developments on the income front as well. What is normally just a chance for the Sun to throw the solar spotlight on your job situation, matters and options, is a month full of potential across the income, work and career fronts.
This is not only a big month on the job front, but the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. For with Jupiter in his last full month in your work sector, the professional gods are ready to put everything on the line. Yet it has taken a year to get to this point and Venus and Mars in particular, will continue to push home advantages on the job and career fronts into the New Year. Jupiter has been working behind the scenes for the last 12 months, now he has the support to bring things home. It was last month that Venus returned for what should have been a 24 day visit to your work sector. Yet as we move into the new month she has already been here for three weeks and instead of moving on, on the 6th October will turn retrograde. With Neptune in his last and Chiron in his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector, this will open the doors to the past, second chances and untapped job and professional potential. While Jupiter will leave your work sector early next month, there is zero danger of things going off the boil. Mercury's return to your work sector on the 10th October will bring a chance to get your head in the game, while the Sun will return to throw the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters from the 24th October. With Jupiter in his final weeks by then, the replacement crew is gathering, in order to take over. By the time Mars returns to your career sector next month Jupiter will be gone, but with the Sun in your work sector and Venus on her way back, things will continue to evolve.
October is a month or at least the majority of the month, is a chance to regroup, catch your breath and even to step back. While Mercury will return to your work sector it won't be until the 31st October and as if sensing that you needed time to regroup, even career forces are pulling back. Until Mercury returns the only planet in either of your two professional houses is the dwarf planet Eris, who is spending her first full month on her own in your career sector in eight years and her last for another three decades. It is extremely rare to have things so quiet on the professional front, but with Uranus returning to your career sector next month and Jupiter to your work sector and both in the early days of the month, this is the quiet before the storm. Eris has been in your career sector since 1926, so for most of us for our entire lifetime, with the warrior princess of the cosmos responsible for your competitive spirit. Spending her first, last and only full month on her own in eight years, this is a chance to regroup and come back to your personal truth. Mercury's return to your work sector on the 31st October is a chance to get your head in the game ahead of Jupiter's return just nine days later. On the 9th November your busiest and most expansive year for job growth in over a decade is kicking off and life is about to become a lot busier. And not just on the job front, with career developments kicking in next month that will only expand over the coming months as well. When the professional gods offer you a quiet month, take it. With Eris in retrograde motion this is a chance to reflect, but also to catch your breath before things take off again.
The wheels are turning on the job and career fronts, though it might feel at times that they are turning in slow motion. While Saturn is spending his first full month in direct motion in your work sector, with Pluto not turning direct until the 1st October, the brakes are coming off but neither will be putting their foot on the gas. In the meantime, with Uranus in his last full month in your career sector before retrograding back out next month and Juno retrograding back in on the 24th October, on the career front all the focus is on the rear view mirror. Uranus, Pluto and Saturn are the giants that will drive things on the job and career fronts for literally years. With Saturn in your work sector until December 2020, Pluto until 2024 and Uranus returning in March and then staying until 2026, they are all playing a long game. However, with the Sun returning to your work sector in December, the pace will gradually increase between now and then, giving you time to slowly gain speed and momentum. From the 1st October, all the focus on the job front is on the road ahead. Yet throughout the month the focus on the career front will remain on the rear view mirror and that will continue next month as well. While the wheels are turning slowly, the Moon's monthly visits provide a valuable window into what is happening behind the scenes and can also act as a trigger, giving things the right nudge at the right time. This makes it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as the Moon moves through your work sector from the 15th October to the 17th October and through your career sector from the 25th October to the 27th October.
This is not usually an active point of any professional year for you, with rarely any planetary activity in your work or career sectors, let alone both. Yet that is exactly what you have this month and the timing couldn't be better, for you have planetary activity in your income sector all month. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your income sector, making this the most potentially lucrative point in any month. However, as you rarely have planetary activity in either of your professional houses, this has limited impact. Yet for the first time in three decades, the Sun returned to your income sector last month to find Mars not only in your work sector, but making a rare double dip visit. With Mars not leaving until the 16th November and continuous planetary activity in your income sector throughout that time, this is creating some auspicious conditions on the job and income fronts. In the meantime, you not only start the month with the Moon in your career sector, but Juno as well. Both the Moon and Juno, queen of commitment, only returned to your career sector in the closing hours of September, with the 1st October revealing forces in play across the income, work and career fronts. Juno is only here for 24 days, turning retrograde on the 12th October and retrograding back out on the 24th October. However, that is long enough to not only confirm a sense of professional direction, but a new sense of resolve and determination. With Mars fired up and ready to make things happen on the job front, he can take it from there.
This month brings a chance to regroup and to an extent retreat. However, this is less about checking out or a lack of motivation and literally because this is not just the calm before the storm, but there really is a chance to reflect. This is both because of what is happening this month and because of what is happening next month, which puts more weight on the first. What is happening this month is that with Neptune in his last and Chiron his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector, all the focus is on the rear view mirror. As the only two planets in either of your two professional houses, even if you wanted to push things forward you would be bucking the trend. Instead, with Neptune turning direct next month and Mars finally returning to fire things up, it is next month when the pace is set to pick up and pick up dramatically. Back in May Mars returned to a playful part of your chart, which normally means he is just six weeks away from your work sector. Yet thanks to a retrograde turn, at the start of the month Mars is still six weeks away and is no closer. By the time Mars does return to your work sector on the 16th November he'll be ready to make up for lost time and with Neptune turning direct just days later, once things kick off there will be no holding things back. At the same time, with the North Node returning to your career sector early next month, it won't be just on the job front that things take off, with your whole professional game picking up. If the professional gods offer a chance to spend time in the slow lane take it, for things will be very different from next month.
October brings a chance to really stand back and on both the job and career fronts push the reset button. Collectively when it comes to job and career matters the focus is on the past, present and future, on where you've been and where to from here, but on both fronts in a big picture way. Eris, dwarf planet and warrior princess of the cosmos is spending her first full month on her own in your work sector in eight years and her last for another three decades. Here since 1926, Eris is the force that has been driving a sense of what you're fighting for, for your entire life. On her own and the only voice in play on the job front, Eris' first, last and only full month on her own brings the kind of silence that allows you to reconnect with a sense of what you're fighting for. In retrograde motion Eris is looking back, so on the job front this is also a chance to pull back and reflect. Uranus will retrograde back in next month and Mars will return on New Year's Day, with the pace set to pick up again, but not this month. In the meantime, the North Node is spending its last full month in your career sector. With 14 months of planetary activity on the career front having ended last month, there is more than enough traction, with the North Node focused on leaving you with a sense of professional direction. Where Eris is looking to the past on the job front, the North Node is looking to the future on the career front. Yet both are giving you time and permission to simply observe. You're even able to push the pause button, knowing that life will start becoming a lot busier again from next month and even more so in the New Year.
When the Sun and Mercury left your career sector late last month, it was not unusual for this to bring all planetary activity there to a close for the year. What is not usual, is to have planetary activity on the job front pick up the slack, keep the momentum going and the professional gods busy. Normally, when the last planet leaves your career sector each year there is no more planetary activity in either of your two professional houses and with nowhere to go, the professional gods are forced to leave the field. This year, when the Sun and Mercury left your career sector, the professional gods in play there simply packed up shop and joined those already in play on the job front. This has left you with a sense of professional direction and a clear path forward professionally, but on the job front there is almost a retrenching. Uranus is spending his last full month in your work sector before retrograding back out early next month while Juno, who only left on the 30th September, will retrograde back in on the 24th October. With Juno here until next February, this will ensure that when Uranus leaves next month the professional gods will still be employed, but it also means that the focus will remain on the rear view mirror. This makes this month all about regrouping, as you review your options on the job and career fronts. The Moon will come full circle from last month's New Moon in your career sector from the 6th October to the 8th October, which could trigger unexpected developments. Meanwhile, the Moon will provide an intuitive window into work and job matters from the 25th October to the 27th October.
The spotlight will always be on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your career sector. Yet each year has a different make up, with different influences in play, with the Sun turning the solar spotlight onto what is happening now, this year. And from the get go this is good news. With fewer planets on the other side of the sky and in fact just one policing a need for balance between your home and professional lives, there is less pressure this year. At the same time, with Venus having already been and gone but returning on the 1st November to spend another month here, you're better able to know what you want and attract opportunities. At the same time, while the Sun will always return to your career sector at this time of year, for the first time in three decades you have Mars in your income sector at the same time. A partnership was forged between the two late last month, which has already boosted your confidence and determination on the income and professional fronts. Yet there are also some surprise developments on the job front as well, at a time of year where there is rarely planetary activity in your work sector. It was in the closing hours of September that the Moon and Juno returned to your work sector. While the Moon will leave on the 2nd October, Juno will turn retrograde on the 12th October and leave on the 24th October, they provide critical support at a critical point in your professional year. Juno is not a major player, but she is able to play support for income and career forces that are.
Even before the Sun returns to your career sector on the 24th October this is already an exception professional month. So much so that this is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. The journey to get to this month began a year ago, when Jupiter returned to your career sector in October 2017. Since then Jupiter has been working in the background, mainly on his own to create the framework for professional growth and ongoing professional success. It was last month that Venus returned, beginning the process of bringing things home. By the time you move into the new month Venus has been here for three weeks, for what should be a 24 day visit aimed at fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. Yet with 21 days of a 24 day visit over, there is little chance of Venus remaining for the full length of a 31 day month, but that is exactly what she does. Recognising a chance to bring things home, instead of moving on, Venus will turn retrograde on the 6th October. This will keep Venus here all month and will also ensure that while she will leave early next month, she will return in December to spend another month here. The more hands on job of bringing things home begins with Mercury's return on the 10th October, bringing with him the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. By the time the Sun returns to shine the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options on the 24th October, Jupiter will be in his final weeks. This is the month that everything until now has been leading up to. Yet it is also the month that everything from now will lead on from.
To start with and for the majority of the month it is business as usual on the professional front, with little to suggest just how close you are to a major new professional thrust. However, you do have your natural sixth sense and it will be working overtime this month. This will influence your expectations, so when the Moon moves through your career sector from the 12th October to the 15th October, for what is a very ordinary monthly visit expect this will feel anything but ordinary. Ordinary because the Moon returns to your career sector every four weeks, fuels your professional instincts and imagination, delivers valuable clues, hunches and insights and then moves on. That is exactly what will happen when the Moon returns, but what makes this extraordinary, is the information you'll pick up on. For this is not just the Moon's last visit before Mercury's return to your career sector on the 31st October, but lucky Jupiter's nine days later. It is on the 9th November that Jupiter will return to begin a 13 month visit that will create the potential for professional growth, expansion and opportunities, right through to the end of 2019. Mercury's return on the 31st October is a chance to get your head in the game and a head start. In the meantime, the North Node is spending its last full month in your work sector, before leaving on the 7th November, just two days before Jupiter's return to your career sector. With no more planetary activity on the job front, it is more about gaining a clear sense of direction on the job front.
