October will be an intense month as some important events are happening in the sky. First, I would like to mention that three planets will end their retrogradation and start moving direct. Mercury on the 2nd of the month, Pluto on the 9th, and Saturn on the 23rd. We might have felt that things were stagnating, in some cases even blocked. You probably felt like there were so many obstacles at every step you tried to make forward. However, these planets moving direct will unlock some energies and will help us finalize our actions.
On the 2nd of October, Mercury starts moving direct in Virgo, one of the three zodiac signs that will be transited by the planet this month. In the first part of the month, you can be pretty busy communicating and building new connections. Probably you’ll have to fix some misunderstandings that happened during the retrogradation. On the 11th of the month, Mercury moves into Libra, making you more preoccupied with your health in general, both mental and physical. You might prefer to make one step behind and just focus on your stuff. Finally, on the 29th, Mercury starts transiting your sign, bringing some great opportunities for you to express yourself and for self-improvement.
A Full Moon in Aries is happening on the 9th of October, in your 6th house of health, habits, and work environment. This can be an intense period at your job as you will probably have a high workload. It can also represent a culminating point of a project that you’ve been working on, while it is also possible to end a professional chapter. You might not be in the best shape at this time, so avoid activities that will require a high level of energy.
Wonderful news is coming on the 23rd of the month, when Venus and the Sun will move into your sign and your 1st house of personality, identity, and self-expression. For the next few weeks, there will be a lot of activity in your sign, so you should take advantage of this moment and launch your project, improve your skills, and become the best version of yourself. You may become more preoccupied with your look, which can eventually lead to finding a romantic partner.
On the 25th of October, a Solar Eclipse will occur in your sign. This event can bring some intense and fated situations into your life. 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 a link to another webpage showing you the regions where the eclipse is visible and the exact time of the event.
Jupiter moves into Pisces on the 28th of the month, in your 5th house of romance, creativity, children, and entrepreneurship. This transit can help you find a romantic partner if you’ve been looking for someone. It also supports those working in a creative environment, as you can have some original ideas.
Let’s wrap up this report with Mars moving retrograde on the 30th of October, in Gemini and your 8th house of intimacy, shared resources, and transformation. Make sure you pay all your debts by this date to avoid penalties or fines. Mars is one of your rulers, so until the 12th of January, you might feel like your energy and stamina are decreasing. Avoid conflicts and impulsive actions as they can quickly escalate to uncontrollable situations. Around mid-October, I will post an article with more details about the retrogradation of Mars in Gemini.
