Astrology October 2020
ARIES You’re bound to be wrestling with something at the moment Aries, your Ruling Planet, Mars, is Retrograde & getting held back for the moment. Right from the get go, you have your annual Full Moon (Friday the 2nd) which will certainly help with realisations & bringing things to a head. It’s probably useful to know that this is a phase, it’s NOT forever, even if you’re feeling stuck & like it will be. If you’ve found your fuse is short & you’re frustrated? Get up & go & DO something. You’re the one Sign who can truly calm your mind through physically expressing your energy. Hanging out on your own will probably feel better too, as others may really be pushing your buttons. No good blowing things up if you’ll only have to go back & make extensive repairs. You’re half way through a couple of trying months, use the time to master YOURSELF & leave others to their own device. If you direct your powers toward clearing old blocks & challenges, you’ll achieve much.
TAURUS Hate to be the one to bring this up but guys, it’s time to get up & happening on the health & fitness front about now. Fortunately, the weather’s opening up & some sunshine will give you motivation, if you give yourself an initial push. Many of us have been sleep walking & more prone to comfort seeking habits & who can blame us, eh?! Now though, your Sign gets a boost to get back on track & turn into who you want to be & be seen as, in going forward. If you HAVE been working hard in these areas, you’ll start to see some great results now! In the first week of October, after spending SO much time thinking & mulling things over, the Full Moon is likely to give you a light bulb moment or two. This should help you get out of your head & more grounded back out in the World. Bringing your physical self in line with diet, exercise & that whole kit-n-caboodle can really take you places in October, so get cracking!
GEMINI The Sun blazes a trail through your sector of creativity & kids this Month, offering you some warmth & support, Gemini. Friends you haven’t seen in an age are set to put in an appearance too & they’re bound to be a source of inspiration, so make time to catch up. Your Ruling Planet, Mercury, is going Retrograde mid Month, it really will allow things to run much smoother in October if you take a minute now to shore up your bounty of tech gear & gadgets. Finding a permanent place to leave your keys as a habit will serve you well too, as they’re the things that tend to go missing at the worst possible moments to trip you up! You may have to put some effort toward clearing up a home or property matter over the next few weeks, read the fine print & all should go well. Aside from this? Your romantic life is about to get a boost, so all good there Gemini! Have fun & enjoy!!
CANCER Lots more emphasis on home & family! Particularly to do with feminine energies… dealing with your sister, daughter or Mum. It’s a positive light that’s being shed, so you’re likely to have favourable circumstances that’ll help you sort out any challenges you’ve been having recently. Fresh starts & new beginnings will be incoming! You may have a creative project or opportunity return to you mid Month & you also have great aspects to work with re your career. Times are challenging, it’s true, but often it’s our perception which flavours how we handle things. Feeling a little more hopeful & confident can really help! Make the effort to focus on what’s good in your life, rather than what’s not, or what’s missing for now & you really can shift things. Energy is neutral until it’s directed, right? So direct it in a way that supports & nurtures you, Cancer. The Month will turn out just fine.
LEO Venus, Planet of beauty, love & value is shining on your finances for much of this Month… Great! If you’ve been waiting on some financial news or a green light re an investment of some kind, it’s likely on its way. This should go a long way toward a boost in confidence & though we’re not quite out of the woods, at least a light at the end of the tunnel should start to shine. Your day to day, neighbourhood & local surrounds get some fresh energy too in the third week of October. If things have felt quite stagnant, they’re set to liven up! If you’ve been studying or learning something new, that may have felt a bit jammed up or stuck too, but you’ll likely have a Eureka Moment in the first week of this Month. It’ll offer you some clarity, Leo… a way through some tough blocks should appear. Keep those peepers open & talk to those who have some experience on the path you’re walking.
VIRGO I imagine you’ve transformed on the inside by now guys & it’s time to bust some of that goodness out into an unsuspecting World! It’s your turn to host Venus this Month, so all things tied to favour & beauty are at your finger tips. It’s very possible you’ve put your self care &/or beauty routines on the back burner, or at least not updated or invested my in yourself lately. There’s just been WAY too much else going on inside your head! Now though, a touch of Spring fever is set to spruce you up… so often if we look good, we feel better, so take some time & place emphasis on YOU. There’s a New Moon in the third week of October which relates to what you value & how you perceive your own worth. Boost that & take advantage. The price you put on yourself is what others must be willing to pay, Virgo. Get to it & feel good about beating your own drum for a change!
LIBRA Happy Birthday! The Sun returns to your Sign & you’re the favoured ones this Month, Libra. Sure we’re still in way crazy times, but you should feel a boost in vitality & at least have some extra energy & optimism to tackle things with. There may have been some tension in your romantic life, with an ongoing push/pull since July & August, & there’s a little way to go yet. But that’s ok because things need to be thoroughly cleaned up out & sorted. It’s no good trying to build & go forward on a shaky foundation. If you’re in a tense situation, step away from the issue & take the two of you off to do something you both love. This will remind you of what’s good & you’ll be expressing any pent up energy in a positive way. Set up a wish list for yourself this Month too, if you put a Vision Board together, it’ll keep you focused, help you reset & serve you well in the Months ahead.
SCORPIO Usually a fairly quiet & reflective time, the weeks before your Birthday, so use it to your advantage & take stock, Scorpio. That way you’ll come out of your cave energised, motivated & with a much cleared sense of what you want in going forward. Daily routines & your health have been a sore point for much of 2020, but it IS a phase & you ARE on the down hill by now. You may have news incoming in the first week of October which illuminates your path & could actually change EVERYTHING! So even though you may be feeling quiet, take time to catch up with an old & trusted friend or two. They’ll help reflect back just how far you’ve come & how much you’ve changed, that’ll anchor you. The Month could prove a bit of a waltz… two steps forward & two back, go with the flow for now, you’re still cooking!
SAGITTARIUS Bit of a strange Month for you, it’s like having one foot in the future & one in the past. The best way to tackle things is to go BOTH ways… if anyone can achieve that? It’s you! Time to investigate, rather than take any flashy flying leaps though. Whatever you put in motion back in July & August may not have proceeded as smoothly as you’d anticipated, so now’s your chance to revisit “stuff” & do a bit of a re-jig. Anything “re” in fact, will serve your purposes right now Sadge. Good thing your creativity will be on fire throughout October, so if you apply yourself, there’ll be a new way through the maze. Venus, Planet of bounty & worth travels through your career sector, meaning others will see you quite favourably at the moment. If you’ve missed an opportunity & thought it was off the table for good? It may not be! Re-visit something you’ve wanted & ask again. Your way forward is to go back to the future.
CAPRICORN Lots of focus & headway re work & career this Month, but not in as challenging a way as it has been for you, Capricorn. No one’s waved a magic wand, but you, like it or not, always perform & feel better when you’ve got a steady platform to work from. Now at least there’s a raft! Even in hard times, you’re more of a when the going gets tough, the tough get going & that’s because you’re made of Titanium! There may have been pressure at home, possibly with the feminine energies in your life… Mum, Sister, Daughter… & there’s still a little way to go in sorting that. But any push/pull should be welcomed, because in the end you’ll achieve a more balanced outcome & even share. The Planet of communication, Mercury, retrogrades mid Month & it’s likely to return friends back to you. Take a minute to relax & catch up, they’ll show you just how far you’ve come & how much you’ve achieved this year, even if you’ve felt completely stuck!
AQUARIUS The Sun is cruising through your zone of philosophy & all matters relating to your higher self & purpose. So even if this energy flows through you on a purely metaphorical level? You’ll be shifting & stepping even more into who you’re becoming! Mid Month may bring back some missed opportunities re career back to you for a second look. Don’t discount anything you may have struck off earlier this year, Aquarius. Things… circumstances may have changed & become more favourable to you now. Seems your romantic life may be offering up news from the past too. If one of your ghosts reappears? You’ll be able to gain a deeper understanding of the inner working of that person or the relationship you shared. It can work both ways… maybe someone needed to comprehend YOU better? Either way, clarity awaits you if you’d like to take a look.
PISCES Another transformative Month for you guys, but this time around, if you’re looking for support especially with regard to finances, you’re likely to find it! Remind yourself that you’re just as deserving as anybody else & ASK for what you want! Relationships, both romantic & family oriented, are in for yet another realignment, but again, it’s about finessing the details which put you on solid ground. Venus, Planet of Love, is in your opposite Sign of Virgo & She can get a tad irritated & crotchety re the nitty gritty little things you usually don’t get hung up on. Others may do though, so address their concerns instead of “poo-pooing” them & things are bound to play out more smoothly this Month. Mercury, Planet of planning & communication goes Retrograde mid Month, so take extra care to convey yourself as clearly as possible. Double checking you’re on the same page as others will offer up a less stress free October.
For those of you who track the path of the Moon, I’ve included the Date, Time, Sign & Degree of both Full & New Moons:
FULL MOON: Friday, October 2nd, at 07:05 @9 Degrees of Aries.
NEW MOON: Saturday, October 17th, at 06:30 @25 Degrees of Libra.
*Moon info is based on local time (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia).
Typically, we read Astro Information based on our Sun Sign, however you can gain much better insight if you read for both your Sun, Rising (or Ascendant) & Moon Signs. You can ascertain these by going to a free Chart calculator (there are many on line now!) & entering your own personal information. Usually, we’re asked for our time of birth & it can prove a sticking point if we don’t know it! If you don’t know your exact time of birth, enter Noon (12:00pm) where asked, & this will serve as a “happy medium”. Take the time to do this (you’ll only have to do it once, not every month) & note the Sign of your 1st House & your Moon Sign. They’re often different from your Sun Sign, but knowing this “trifecta” offers information that’s deeper & more relevant to who you really are. This way, Astrology will start to make a lot more sense to you, personally.
