October is probably one of the most intense months of the year. We have 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 and start moving direct. 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 our plans forward. With so many retrograde planets, our actions were stagnating, and it was challenging to make one step ahead. However, these planets moving direct will help action in a productive way.
On the 2nd of October, Mercury starts moving direct, which can lessen the miscommunication and confusion from the past weeks. Mercury will go through three zodiac signs this month, the first of them being Virgo. Here it will make you preoccupied with your finances. Probably you’ve been struggling with the planet moving retrograde here. Now you are aware of your financial situation, and you can take action to improve it. On the 11th of the month, Mercury moves into Libra, where it can make your social life more active. It can also be an excellent time to resolve some bureaucratic activities. You can also make some good deals if you are implied in commerce. Finally, on the 29th of the month, the planet moves into Scorpio, where it will trigger your home and family life.
A Full Moon in Aries is happening on the 9th of October, in your 9th house of higher education, life beliefs, and long-distance travels. It can be a time when something related to your education reaches a culminating point. Probably you are finishing a course, and now you become certified in your domain.
On the 23rd of the month, Venus and the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 4th house of home and family. For the next few weeks, this area of your life will be very intense, and you can expect many events to happen. The transit supports those trying to buy a new home, as you can find some great deals. You can find a place that you like at an advantageous price. You may also start a home-related project, such as redecorating. This can be an excellent time to find a solution to resolve a persisting family issue.
A Solar Eclipse is happening in Scorpio on the 25th of October, in your 4th house, bringing some intense energy to this area of your life. This is a special event, and there’s a lot to say about this. 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 the regions where the eclipse is visible and the exact time of the event.
Jupiter moves back into Pisces on the 28th of October, in your 8th house of intimacy, shared resources, and transformation. This is a time when you can reevaluate your finances, and some of you may identify prosperous financial opportunities. The transit supports those trying to apply for a loan or a mortgage.
Finally, on the 30th of October, Mars starts moving retrograde in Gemini and your 11th house of friends, networking, connections, and long-term plans. This transit lasts until the 12th of January 2023, and can bring some conflictual situations with your friends and people from your community. This is why it would be recommended to avoid any impulsive reactions, as you might say things you’ll regret later. Later this month, I will post an article with more details about the retrogradation of Mars in Gemini.
