July 23 - Aug. 22
October 2019by the AstroTwins
Get out and circulate! The Sun is in Libra until October 23, warming up your third house of communication and community. Spread your message, tell people what you’re up to and, if you’re job hunting, let friends and colleagues know exactly what you’re looking for. With gutsy and assertive Mars also here from October 3 to November 19, the squeaky (Leonine) wheel gets the premium-grade oil. You’re a natural communicator with exquisite taste, and Libra’s influence will add extra beauty and charm. While you’re a Lion about town, make sure you have something to promote: build that online portfolio on Squarespace, curate an Instagram grid, or spark dialogue with your Twitter peeps. (Might there be a blue check in your future?) Figuring out a tailor-made social media strategy will take you far.
You’ll be productive at home once Scorpio season begins on October 23, and possibly even on the hunt for a new place to live. Set your sights on the October 27 Scorpio new moon for good real estate karma and begin your search then! If you’re happy at your current address, maybe it’s time for a new home office or style refresh? Make it meaningful by bringing in spiritual cleaning concepts. Thank the items you no longer need before you toss them or get out your compass and Feng Shui your workspace (https://www.astrostyle.com/feng-shui-astrology). Scorpio energy favors symbols with meaning (for example, an elephant figurine on your desk for prosperity—trunk up!), which will pair perfectly with luxe Leo touches like textured throw pillows. Is your style minimalist and clutter-free or does every inch of space need to tell a story? Consider, too, career inspiration as decoration. That note from your supervisor telling you did a kick-butt job? Frame it and put it on your wall of fame. A relative could provide helpful advice or even a job lead around this date.
Try to get anything home-related sorted before Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio from October 31 to November 20. This transit, which happens three or four times each year, is notorious for foiling technology, travel, information, and communication. Back up all your most important data—including all those nostalgic family photos sitting on your hard drive—and watch that your emotions don’t eclipse your better judgment. With hotheaded Mars in your communication house, you could be thin-skinned and reactive—never a good thing when calm decisions needed to be made.
