Wrap up unfinished business while you can, Scorpio, as a new birthday year is about to begin. As October begins the Sun is in your twelfth house of closure, encouraging you to clear the decks of past dramas, dilemmas and projects. Optimistic Jupiter will remain in this part of the sky for another year, allowing your creativity to flourish as inspiration pours in. You may find that you want to work alone rather than in a team environment, and with this kind of aspect you’re actually being advised to do so.
The 1st is the perfect time to put an end to things that have reached their sell-by date, as a new moon occurs in this part of the sky. Over the next few months you’ll be highly motivated to kick bad habits, cut ties with people who may be taking you down the wrong path or who don’t have your best interests at heart, or to confidentially plan your next move.
Romantic prospects look extra promising at this lunation as the two most amorous planets, Venus and Neptune, form a glorious trine. If you’re single, your days of being alone may be coming to an end. Committed Scorpios could experience a burst of romance that will energize your relationship.
And by the way, you’re looking pretty sexy these days, thanks to lovely Venus gracing your sign. This is the perfect time for a makeover, which includes new clothes, weight loss, plastic surgery , minor tweaks like Botox or fillers, a new hairstyle and a brand spankin’ new attitude. You’ll have about seven juicy weeks to work it, Scorpio, because just as Venus leaves this part of the sky on the 18th, the Sun gets ready to enter Scorpio for a solid month. Gotta love it!
Intelligent Mercury enters your house of intuition on the 7th, ramping up your psychic skills (which already should have gotten a boost at the new moon of the 1st). This can be a blessing, as your ability to pull in wisdom from a higher realm is there. The only problem is that blabbermouth Mars is in your third house of communication and expression. Which means the following: put on a filter! Don’t say everything you think or feel, unless you want to alienate others. There are days this month when it’s wise to talk, and days when discretion is key.
Days to keep it zipped are the 5th, 7th, 13th, 15th (try to hide or take a vow of complete silence), the 20th and the 29th. If you have struggled in the past with a bad temper or any other less-than-pleasant means of expression–like trolling, ranting on social media, making snide remarks or left-hand compliments, or sending nasty grams via text or e-mail– the doo-doo could hit the fan.
There are excellent days for communication, however, and here they are: the 1st, 2nd, 11th and 30th for love, with the 2nd being a day for admitting you have a secret crush, or holding a hush-hush convo with someone; and the 4th, 11th and 26th for money and career matters. With so much planetary emphasis on confidentiality these days it would be wise to keep the content of your talks to just a few trusted confidantes.
The full moon of the 16th falls in your house of work, and truth be told it’s a tough one. The day before brings not one, but two difficult aspects. Something unusual or surprising could occur at the office in the latter part of the week. Many of you might jump to the conclusion that your job is in jeopardy, which may not be the case. It’s possible that a job may come to an end, but also highly likely that some kind of behind-the-scenes drama is unfolding.
A person in a position of authority may come down hard on you or the rest of the staff, so keep your wits about you and remember—say as little as possible! This storm passes quickly, and the good news is that profitable Venus glides into your income sector two days later on the 18th. This is a superb aspect for earning more or finding a new gig.
Then the Sun enters Scorpio on the 22nd, and now it’s your turn to shine. Chatty Mercury follows two days later, enabling you to speak more openly than you had been earlier in the month. A good day for presenting yourself (meeting his parents, going on a job interview, pitching a client) is the 27th. The 29th rocks for nailing down a business deal that will help you earn a lot more.
Then the month ends with a fabulous new moon in your sign on the 30th! This is the day to make a wish about anything you’d like to manifest in the year ahead. If it’s love that you’re interested in, or having a baby, a beautiful trine the same day between Mercury and amorous Neptune helps open doors to a much more romantic future.
