Everyone gets a big boost in October as four planets go direct. Logjams start to loosen up and momentum builds. Of all the signs of the zodiac, though, Cancers should see a lot more forward motion. That’s because the planets that have been retrograde have covered a wide swath of topics in your chart, from love to money to housing to family matters. The 18th through the 20th is a pivotal time period.
Jupiter and Saturn finally go direct in Aquarius
Aquarius is your eighth house, which is a pretty funky place. It govern your net worth–real estate, stocks and mutual funds, inheritances, court awards, child support, alimony, commissions and bonuses and what is generally referred to as “mailbox money”, or passive income. If you’re married or live with someone, and your money is mingled with theirs, this is an eight house activity. So is sex, intimacy and forming a deep bond with a lover.
Well, with abundant Jupiter and mature Saturn both retrograde in this part of your chart for the past few months, you could’ve had a heck of a lot of trouble with money and romance. Good news, Cancer: Saturn goes direct on the 8th, followed by Jupiter on the 18th.
Career and other big goals
Get ready – – a full moon arrives on the 20th in Aries, your tenth house of ambition and success. As previously mentioned, money and romance may have been all snarled up due to having Jupiter and Saturn retrograde. Fortunately they go direct before this full moon occurs. As a result, when October begins, go full steam ahead with any goal that is important to you. Even if things still seem mired in muck, things start to bust loose around the 20th.
Pluto has been retrograde in yet another house that governs romance, your seventh. This sector also governs business alliances. Pluto goes direct on the 6th, which will help you feel more in control of what’s going on in your life. After all, this is the planet of personal power.
Mercury has been spinning backwards in your house of home and family, but it stations direct on the 18th. Shortly thereafter the energy is excellent for buying a house, renting a new place, starting a family or moving in with a lover. The full moon could also bring in a job offer!
You could experience more cooperation in a romantic relationship when Venus enters Sagittarius on the 7th. The new moon in Libra on the 6th is important if you and a lover are talking about taking things to the next higher level, such as getting engaged or moving in with each other. There is a strong family/nesting vibe going on all month. In other words, you want answers, not shaky situations.
Romance heats up even more when the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd! Scorpio is your house of romance. It’s worth noting that red hot Mars enters Scorpio on the 30th, a place it hasn’t been in two years. Things could be wildly passionate and sexy, but Mars could also bring up arguments in this part of your life, so be careful.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
