Big news, Taurus: four planets resume direct motion this month, which means that plans that have been held up will start to develop momentum. Bulls have been especially affected by the retrogrades, considering that Saturn and Jupiter have been spinning backward in your tenth house of goals and ambition. Once they start to move forward, things shake loose. Furthermore, this month’s full moon on the 20th is in your house of closure and transition. It urges you to walk away from situations that are old and tired. From your chart, it sure looks like you are ready for this!
For the first three weeks of October, focus on your career more than other areas of your life. The Sun, Mars and Mercury are all in Libra, your sixth house of efficiency.
Get caught up with projects at the office. Create better, faster routines. Finish up your résumé if you’re looking for a new job.
Mercury happens to be retrograde in this part of your chart, but it goes direct on the 18th. Two days later, the full moon occurs in your house of big transitions. Things are really going to start popping once the 20th arrives: make sure that you’re caught up on old stuff and ready to jump into something new.
If you’re an entrepreneur, or you want to be one, you get an extra boost from the cosmos this month. Pluto has been retrograding for a long time in Capricorn, your house of self-employment. Pluto goes direct on October 6, so it’s showtime.
Good days for career are the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 10th (Saturn goes direct), 15th, and 18th (Jupiter goes direct). The full moon on the 20th could bring a job offer your way, or help you land new clients and bigger bucks for your business.
Romance could be a bit tricky this month, I have to be honest. The action is going to start later in the month once the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd. That’s because Scorpio is your seventh house of serious commitment. Red hot Mars enters Scorpio on the 30th.
Let’s get real here: if a relationship has been rocky, the full moon on the 20th could be its end point. After all, this lunation is the annual full moon in your house of closing out the past. This is where we dump baggage that is holding us down so that we can move on.
There is some cosmic help coming earlier in the month, however. On the 7th, gentle Venus enters Sagittarius, which can help you mend fences with a lover. This is especially true when it comes to talking about sex, joint finances and deep emotions. But if things are not fixable, you may decide to walk away at full moon time.
A word of warning, my friend: once impetuous Mars enters your house of love on the 30th, you run the risk of getting into a rebound relationship. Don’t jump into something new too quickly.
This goes for single bulls as well. Scorpio season is a superb time for meeting someone new, someone who could become a spouse. But with Mars entering this part of your chart, things could take off too quickly and sound judgment could get pushed to the side, which is not a good thing.
If you’re already in a good relationship, not to worry! Your relationship could get stronger, especially over the first three weeks. There’s a nice air of teamwork and selflessness going on.
Aries full moon on the 20th
October is a big month for figuring out your next steps. For months, planets have been retrograding in houses that help you move forward with major life plans, such as your career, romance, travel and anything else that’s on your bucket list. They all jump forward this month, just as a full moon occurs in your house of endings.
That means that October is decision time, Taurus, which may feel a little weird or uncomfortable after many months of lockdown. But it’s time. So as October begins, start seriously thinking about who and what needs to stay, and what has to go.
This includes things going on in your heart, body and mind. Things like habits, old memories, unhelpful emotions, sorrows, and health problems. Be brutally honest with yourself. Everything that is holding you back needs to be assessed and dealt with, and you’re the only person who can do that.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
