October is probably one of the most intense months of the year. We have three planets ending their retrogradation, a Solar Eclipse, and a rare retrogradation. I would like to begin this report with the three planets that will end their retrogradation. The first planet is Mercury on the 2nd of the month, Pluto on the 9th, and finally, Saturn on the 23rd. This can feel like a release of energy that helps us move forward. With so many retrograde planets, we might have felt like things were stagnating, and it was challenging to make one step ahead. However, these planets moving direct will ease our process of moving forward.
On the 2nd of October, Mercury starts moving direct in Virgo, one of the three zodiac signs transited by this planet during the month. Here it will move your attention to studies and exchange of information. As well, it can be a good time to travel or to plan a vacation. On the 11th of the month, Mercury moves into Libra, bringing some great opportunities to improve your social status. It can be a good time for you to make yourself visible and to negotiate a promotion. Your communication with people in authority is highly supported at this time. Later, on the 29th, Mercury moves into Scorpio, increasing your social activity. It is a great time to stay in touch with other people and build new connections.
A Full Moon in Aries is happening on the 9th of October, in your 4th house of home and family. It can bring to an end a home-related project, and you can finally enjoy your time at home. As well, the Full Moon can shine a light on some older family issues, which can lead to endless and intense discussions with your family members.
On the 23rd of the month, Venus and the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 11th house of friends, networking, and higher aspirations. Get ready for a lot of activity in this area of your life for the next few weeks. This transit will help you become visible in your community. People will want to get in touch with you, and you know that networking can sometimes lead to great opportunities. You may build new connections that will later help you in achieving your goals.
A Solar Eclipse is happening in Scorpio on the 25th of October, in your 11th house. This event intensifies the activity in this area of your life, and can bring some fated events to you. This is why I wrote a separate article dedicated to the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio. You can check it and learn more about how it affects your zodiac sign. I also left you a link to another webpage showing you the regions where the eclipse is visible and the exact time of the event.
Jupiter moves back into Pisces on the 28th of the month, in your 3rd house of communication, siblings, and learning. This is a good time to reevaluate your knowledge and enroll in a course to improve your skills. Those who are involved in activities that require communication should take advantage of this transit: it is supporting you in negotiation, publishing, having a speech, commerce, and so on.
Finally, on the 30th of October, Mars starts its retrogradation in Gemini and your 6th house of work, habits, and health. Until the 12th of January, you might lack some energy due to a high workload. You should take care of your health and maintain a work-life balance so that you can avoid exhaustion. There are high chances that you will have some arguments at work, and you should take care of your words because you might regret them later. An article with more details about the retrogradation of Mars in Gemini will be posted around the middle of October.
