Sept. 23 - Oct. 22
October 2019by the AstroTwins
All fired up! Your personal goals are ablaze this month as the Sun rockets through your sign until October 23. And this year, “Libra season” comes with an extra shot of mojo because activating Mars, the planet of energy, happens to be in your sign from October 3 to November 19. With the feisty red planet amplifying your assertiveness, you’re unusually proactive and willing to ask (directly) for what you want. Good for you, Libra!
You’ve also got money (and monetizing those original ideas) on your mind because clever Mercury starts an extended visit to Scorpio and your second house of work and finances on October 3. If you’ve been interested in learning more about fiscal management, now’s the time. Sign up for a free personal finance course (there are a lot of introductory options online) or install apps like Mint or You Need A Budget (YNAB) to help you pay down that credit card or college loan. A possible job opportunity might require you to travel a short distance for a last-minute interview.
You’re even more eager to deep-dive into financial stability when the Sun moves into Scorpio for a month on October 23. At the October 27 Scorpio new moon, a new career offer could arise. This is an ideal time for fresh starts and setting intentions. Employ that Scorpionic laser focus on the position you want and keep your eye on the prize. Get ahead of the game by scheduling meetings and interviews for this auspicious day (and show up looking fabulous, in true Libra fashion!). In the interim, do your research: scan the company’s website and Twitter feed, reflect on why this job has your name on it and what you can uniquely bring to the table.
This is an ideal month to commit to a new spending and savings budget. Just introduce any new systems slowly! 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 important data and save purchase receipts, since Mercury can give you an inevitable bout of “buyer’s remorse.” An old client or contact might surface with a fresh opportunity.
