march 20 - april 19
October is a busy month. You’ll be kept on your toes by numerous duties and obligations, whether these are within the world of work or anchored beyond this sphere. If you’re employed, your timetable threatens to overwhelm you, while those responsibilities for which you don’t get paid, seem demanding and onerous. No doubt you are making progress and your efforts are not in vain, but sometimes it feels like two steps forward and another back, with little approbation forthcoming either from those you’d love to notice. Your famous vitality is often stretched to its limits, so taking proper care of yourself is definitely a smart move…

Finally, there is some action in your constellation, the first you have seen really, since the Sun left this region of the heavens back in the middle of May. Shortly beforehand, there was a new moon in your sign as the Sun and the Moon met up together in its later stages. This inspired you to make a few decisions, not necessarily on an outward or obvious level, but instead rather subtly and where your emotions are concerned. The full moon in your sign on October 27 is the culmination of this process, helping you judge how successfully these have turned out and where necessary, make a few adjustments to your trajectory.

may 21 - june 20
The focus throughout October is on your home and family affairs. Where you’re living, where you’d ideally reside and how well your current situation matches with these expectations, are all matters to consider. Largely, you can be assured that after a period of instability, the prospects for this month and also those ahead, are rewarding and positive. If you move it will be to a better location, with more space and in a nicer neighbourhood, making you wonder how you put up with that old dive for so long. Alternatively, you might prefer to improve where you live already by redecorating and renovating, perhaps remodelling too…

june 21 - july 22
October sees you embrace a more optimistic viewpoint than you have in a while. This comes down to both Venus and Jupiter in an area of the sky that has always impacted on your mood and outlook. These factors are inseparable after all, since in a gloomy frame of mind you will consider your prospects far less favourably, than if you were otherwise buoyant and happy. This a period during which you’ll learn a great deal about the world; possibly in what would generally be thought of as an educational environment, but more frequently when it comes to everyday encounters and circumstances you would not normally expect.

july 23 - august 22
Possibly, you are of the opinion this is not the task you were cut out for, or at least that is what your current predicament keeps suggesting anyway. The burgeoning energy of the past year slowly subsides, leaving you with more tangible resources but with less clear sense, of cutting a fresh furrow and blazing a distinctive trail. Still, practicality is your middle name. You are aware money in the bank didn’t arrive there by accident and how, this represents a resource you ought not to squander or abuse. There are still many imperfections you need to acknowledge and fewer options open in the end for actually dealing with these…

august 23 - september 22
There are three and even at one point, four astrological planets in your sign this month. This bodes well for your affairs, especially since both Venus and Jupiter are major players in the picture that prevails. Late in October they meet exactly in your region of the heavens, shining brightly in the early hours and fading with the sunrise. Mars also conjoins Jupiter slightly over a week beforehand, highlighting a period of good fortune for all your relationships, especially when you can seize the initiative. Though usually you’ll take a back seat and are not keen to push yourself forward, there are times a proactive stance is the one to pick.

september 23 - october 22
There is plenty happening behind the scenes with a number of planets in the sign before yours. Mercury is in your constellation throughout this month and resumes direct motion on October 9, so in combination with the Sun that’ll remain until two weeks afterwards, you are in a more public position than has lately been the case. These planets prove a source of support if you need to make a good impression, negotiate or discuss important matters with those whose opinion makes all the difference. Yet from a more personal and private point of view, it’s the round of constant questioning that contributes most to your inner growth.
scorpio - scorpio : the scorpion -
october 23 - november 21
You’re famous for your strong will and sense of purpose, or notorious for your recalcitrance and obstinacy depending on prevailing opinion. Yet curiously, your attitude towards money and your material security is surprisingly changeable. For instance, although your expenditure is substantial sometimes and to be in control of the material sphere proves one of your primary objectives, there are still certain compromises you aren’t prepared to make in the interests of feathering your nest. This can occasionally place you in a tricky position, as you are forced to rationalise your outgoings and focus on what you can actually afford…

november 22 - december 21
Saturn back in your sign for two years and more, is not a factor you can disregard. You always have free will, but attempting to ignore the need to streamline your schedule heading forwards, brings with it all the uncomfortable side effects with which this planet is often linked. Shortcomings, shortages and shortfalls are the last things you’d like to be reminded about, but to some degree this proves necessary therapy to get your life back on the right track again. Economy, diligence, perseverance and an extended perspective are all favoured by a planet, whose influence is critical and absolutely central to any lasting achievements.

december 22 - january 19
You have a fixed and set agenda. This applies longer term and also on an everyday basis. But sometimes even you will come to question the true purpose of whatever is on your list. And that might not be such a bad thing either, because eventually everyone must adapt to changing circumstances and also, to what you have learned in the interim. Except this flies in the face of so many ideas, that were instilled at such an early stage in your upbringing, to challenge them seems like saying black is white and turning all you thought you knew on its head. Only this doesn’t necessarily imply, it is the wrong option for you to select…

january 20 - february 18
It would be simplest just to throw in your lot with others. From both a material and financial point of view this is obviously the safest and most lucrative option, while in terms of any viable alternative it has already proven difficult, to pursue another course that is significantly different. Still, there are some issues remaining to be addressed, both when it comes to what lies ahead and also to your favoured means of getting there. On the one hand you appreciate this will take hard work and dedication, but on the other you instinctively realise, that giving from your surplus and not from your substance is the right thing to do.

february 19 - march 19
Neptune, your ruling planet, has been in your sign for several years and remains for a long time to come. This means a period of occasional confusion, although what you lose in terms of clarity, you’ll make up for with an intuitive insight into other people and their affairs. This planet also makes you extremely idealistic, a scenario that Saturn, newly ensconced in Sagittarius will test remorselessly. Throughout this year and also the next, with an initial peak period towards the end of November, you’ll find the realities of your current situation putting paid to any woolly thinking, with a focus on your relationships in the first instance.
