Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
October 2019by the AstroTwins
Work your network! There’s power in numbers this month, as the Sun spreads its rays through Libra and your eleventh house of teamwork and tech. With go-getter Mars also here from October 3 to November 19, casting a wide and collaborative net could scoop up lots of exciting catches! Most Archers aren’t exactly camera-shy, but you do want to have a few meaningful talking points before you press “record.” With the gutsy Sun and Mars teamed up in this viral sector, a podcast or video could get your message out to your audience. If you’re job-hunting, tap your inner circle (and theirs) for helpful leads. Fortune favors the bold now.
But make time for unstructured dreaming and a little mental rest this month, too. Cerebral Mercury, the planet of communication, will camp out in Scorpio and your flowy twelfth house from October 3 to December 9, a sharp contrast to the rah-rah Libra energy. You might find yourself a bit foggy or sleepy. Get ample rest after you power through an industry conference or high-energy cocktail meetup. If you work in an artistic or creative field, this cycle is a boon, and all the more so once the Sun enters Scorpio for a month on October 23, followed by the Scorpio new moon on October 27. Put your most original and avant-garde ideas out there!
Fly under the radar starting October 31, when Mercury turns retrograde until November 20, a cycle that’s notorious for wreaking havoc on technology, travel, information, and communication. Back up all your important data and strengthen password—the twelfth house rules hidden agendas and you don’t need anyone intruding in your info. Ward off any brain fogginess the old-fashioned way: by drinking water and getting a good night’s sleep. Take a good, hard look at any past missteps in your career. Be honest about the ways you may have sabotaged your work and career. Sit quietly with a pen and a pad and do some soul-searching, then think through what you can do to move forward. Facing your demons is the best way not to repeat the same limiting behavior.
