You haven’t had it easy lately, lion. Saturn and Jupiter have been retrograding in Aquarius, your house of serious commitment. Neptune is retrograding in your house of sex and intimacy, and Uranus is spinning backwards in your house of career. Oh, and Mercury is backspinning in your communications house! Ugh—career, love and communication mix-ups galore. But things start to loosen up this month, even developing momentum and starting to take off.
In astrology, there are several houses that govern romance: the seventh, eighth and fifth. Since early 2021, Jupiter and Saturn have been situated in your seventh house of serious commitment. However, they’ve been retrograde for a few months.
Murky Neptune is retrograding through your eighth house of sex, intimacy and deep emotions. Fortunately, Saturn goes direct on the 10th and Jupiter on the 18th.
Mercury goes direct on the 18th as well, which is more good news. If you’ve had trouble communicating with a lover, Mercury’s forward motion should help enormously. There is also a new moon in your communication sector on the 6th. So you have excellent opportunities to rebuild a relationship that may have been shaky.
My word, it looks like single Leos may have been in the desert of despair when it comes to finding somebody new! October is the month when you reach the oasis, baby. That new moon on the 6th is great for meeting someone, and this would be a face-to-face meeting rather than an online dating kind of a deal. You could meet someone right in your neighborhood while out running errands. Or a friend could introduce you to someone at a gathering. It certainly doesn’t hurt that love planet Venus enters your fifth house of flirty romance on the 7th.
Once Venus makes her move, the entire remainder of October has a really fun, juicy vibe for all Leos. You and a lover could get serious when the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd, followed by Mars on the 30th.
Uranus has been retrograde in Taurus for months, which is actually a beneficial situation. Taurus is your house of big goals: creating them and crushing them. But Uranus is a very unpredictable planet, fond of creating all sorts of chaos.
So when it’s spinning backwards in the heavens, things actually start to calm down. There should be fewer ups and downs in your career, good news from the heavens.
The new moon is perfect for creating your brand, making presentations and promoting yourself, even though Mercury is retrograde.
Entrepreneurship is strongly favored all month long. The full moon on the 20th is in your house of self-employment, so if you’re thinking about doing your own thing, now’s the time. This is also going to be an incredibly creative month thanks to Venus in your house of talent and skill. But you’re also being a left brain kind of a place. You could collaborate with colleagues and toss around a lot of ideas, becoming stimulated by what other people have to say and think. You may not land new job until mid to late November, so October is the time to promote yourself.
Sun enters Scorpio
Family and housing matters go front and center once the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd. Scorpio is your fourth house of domestic matters, and you’re going to create crave peace and quiet. However, agitator Mars enters this part of your chart on the 30th, stirring things up. If you’re smart, you’ll resolve issues with a lover or family members before Mars gets there.
