Networking is the name of the game in October, Sagittarius! The Sun and lucky Jupiter are in this part of your chart as the month begins, with chatty Mercury joining them on the 7th. A new moon on the 1st is custom made for expanding your reach, and with Saturn in a good spot the people you meet these days could be in your life for years to come.
This holds true for hot new romantic prospects, friends, business contacts, neighbors, industry or trade groups, and people who you might meet in volunteer work. This house also governs the digital world, so virtual contacts could pay off for you down the road.
If you’re starting a website or a blog, coding an app, thinking about taking a brick and mortar store online, or developing software, this month has your name written all over it.
That being said, however, there are a few tough days ahead that you need to watch. When dealing with others you need to watch your wallet, as someone close, such as a friend, cries poverty and asks you for a loan. Chances are you won’t see the money again so think twice before you lend. Likewise, don’t let envy of your acquaintances drive you to spend money on things you think you need in order to catch up with them.
In teams or groups, roles and duties may need to be revised. Someone might start wearing their bossy pants and need to get knocked down a few pegs. Days to watch are the 5th, 7th, 13th and especially the 15th. You might also discover that certain big goals or dreams that you’ve been hoping for have a higher price tag than expected, so start saving.
There are also some stellar days when it comes to networking, such as the 1st (new moon opening up doors), the 4th (long-lasting bond formed with someone special), the 11th (off the charts wonderful, when you can create a think tank, launch a profitable venture, find a secure romantic partner) and the 14th (same vibe as the 4th).
By mid-month your focus will shift somewhat from the tribe and your work contacts to your love life and kids, if you have them. A full moon on the 16th in your fifth house of romance, fun and children could bring something to a close. Erratic Uranus is nearby, indicating that something could catch you off guard.
Whether this is a positive or negative really depends on what’s been going on in your life up until this point. For example, some Scorpios might be very surprised to witness an engagement ring being slipped on their finger, whereas others may experience a sudden breakup. There are two tense angles the day before, and one of them does affect you romantically. Someone may be creating needless drama, claiming that you’re not on the same page when it comes to future goals.
If that’s the case, take some time to think things over before you make a major decision. The full moon could also bring a surprise pregnancy or a shocking confession from someone who’s been hot for you for ages. A creative project could come to a grand finale with unexpected positive media attention, so start wrapping things up now!
Look-at-me Venus enters your sign on the 18th, making this the perfect time for a makeover. But you may conduct it in private, as the Sun enters your hush-hush twelfth house on the 22nd. Listen, not everyone needs to hear about your new diet, and keeping it on the downlow has the added benefit of shocking everyone when the pounds melt off.
Intelligent Mercury enters the same house a few days later on the 24th, ramping up your intuition over the next three weeks. The 27th is one of your best days of the year for picking up psychic information!
Then on the 29th you could be ready for major changes in love as romantic Venus connects with stable Saturn. A new moon on the 30th encourages you to still keep things in all areas of your life confidential for now.
