Feb. 19 - Mar. 20
October 2019by the AstroTwins
It’s all about the details this month, as the Sun plunges into Libra and your focused, merging-minded eighth house until October 23. You could get downright obsessive about your goals (or swept up in tunnel vision) when driven Mars heads into Libra for its biennial visit from October 3 to November 19. Be careful not to let anxiety overtake you—look up and around you and remember that there is a big world beyond whatever is consuming you right now. (Not that it isn’t important, just keep perspective, Pisces!)
Luckily, you’ll have an opportunity to see the broader picture if you peer through the lens of Mercury. The planet of communication starts an extended visit to Scorpio and your expansive ninth house on October 3. This purpose-driven transit connects the dots and reminds you why you’re working so hard in the first place! Even as you stay true to your mission, make sure you think outside the box.
Once the Sun starts a month-long visit to Scorpio, you’ll pull your head out of the sand and adopt a much more adventurous and open mindset. It’s a great time to speak your mind and share (even evangelize) your big ideas. If you’re interested in a career in higher education, such as teaching at a community college or even a charter school, this transit is perfect for checking out options! And if you’re willing to relocate for the position, all the better. The October 27 Scorpio new moon presents an ideal moment to put those feelers out into the wider world.
On October 31, Mercury will turn retrograde until November 20, a cycle that’s notorious for wreaking havoc on technology, travel, information, and communication. Now, you want to be a little less caution-to-the-wind with what you share. Use stronger filters because your outspoken comments could be taken the wrong way, or better yet, don’t say it!
