Mar. 21 - Apr. 19
October 2019by the AstroTwins
Give your indie spirit a short sabbatical this month, Aries. Partnering up is the key as the Sun travels through Libra and Scorpio, activating the two key relationship zones of your chart. This is a fabulous time to build and nurture key connections that will help you get ahead. Go outside your usual circle and invite a potential mentor, investor, or supervisor out to lunch. Make sure you do your research—social media is your friend—to figure out if it’s a lunch at a James Beard award-winning restaurant or afternoon tea in the company cafeteria? Be clear about your goals and remember reciprocity. Make sure you follow up with a handwritten thank you card. (We know, we know. So last millennium.)
With go-getter Mars in Libra in your companionship zone from October 3 to November 19, negotiations could hit a few stressful patches. Tap into the forthrightness and passion of this transit and be creative about asking for what you want. For instance, if the salary is non-negotiable, request a bonus or time flexibility (four-day work week anyone?). But this emphasis on others doesn’t mean you won’t need time to yourself! The Aries full moon on October 13 brings a spotlight moment when all the work you’ve been doing since your last birthday comes together with a flourish. With mental Mercury making an extended trip through Scorpio starting October 3, your eighth house of privacy and focus is activated. That gets even stronger when the Sun enters Scorpio for a month on October 23, followed by a powerful Scorpio new moon on October 27. You could ink a joint venture or find new ways to invest your resources. But don’t be impulsive—an opposition from chaotic Uranus could bring a curveball from your current job or an unplanned expense. Diversify and don’t spend it all in one place!
This is an excellent time for research and digging into the nitty-gritty details of a project. Was it Aristotle who said, “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know”? Scorpio is all about uncovering mysteries, so it’s likely you’ll discover the missing puzzle piece, the one bit of information that brings the whole vision together. On October 31, Mercury will turn retrograde until November 20, a cycle that’s notorious for wreaking havoc on technology, travel, information, and communication. Back up all your most essential data and strengthen passwords, especially on financial sites. Read the fine print twice and be slow to ink any contracts, giving key details extra time to be revealed. Ask questions, and do your own sleuthing, too!
