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 of Mars. The planets that will end their retrogradation are 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 signs transited by this planet during the month. In the first part of the month, you will be focused on your relationships. You probably need to fix some miscommunication that occurred during the retrogradation. On the 11th of the month, Mercury starts transiting the sign of Libra, moving your attention to your finances. It can be a good time for those who want to apply for a loan or a mortgage. As well, some of you might become interested in investments. It is also possible that some secrets will be revealed. Finally, on the 29th of October, Mercury moves into Scorpio, increasing your desire to explore more and expand your knowledge. It can be an excellent time to enroll in a course and to travel abroad.
A Full Moon in Aries is happening on the 9th of October, in your 2nd house of money and finances. This event can bring to the surface some financial issues that can unstabilize you.

On the 23rd of the month, Venus and the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 9th house of long-distance travels, studies, and life beliefs.
