Hi Capricorn! Mars is feeling restless in your house of travel during the first three weeks of October, so pack that suit case and find yourself somewhere exciting to go! What’s important during this transit is that you can escape hum drum in some way and see and do something marvellous; a beautiful view may be all it takes to re-inspire you and prevent you from feeling bored with your world. Mars likes to have a good cause to fight, and as this house also oversees ethical values and beliefs, this is a period when you will be especially keen to stand by what you believe in. Mars and Venus will form a pleasant conjunction here between the 1st and 14th, which could take you into a new love relationship with someone you meet on a trip or whilst taking part in a psychic, religious or training event.
Pluto is making slow progress again in your sign as October approaches, which is a fair improvement on his stagnant standstill of the past two months! You should begin to feel more in control and able to have your say, and finding an outlet for that inner intensity which Pluto seems to invoke will be much easier than it has been recently. Creative ventures should be especially satisfying, and Pluto’s trine with Mars from the 1st to 11th is fabulous for studying subjects which will really stretch your mind and allow you to observe human nature more closely, such as psychology and philosophy. Pluto will form a rather tense aspect with the full Moon of the 5th, however, which could create some tension around family life. Changes of a significant nature will hit your domestic world around this time, and you will find it hard to adapt. Trying to prevent things from moving forward will be tempting, but letting go and accepting the situation will ultimately be the less stressful approach.
The Sun shines a helpful light on career matters for the first three weeks of the month, and this is a good time to impress with your charisma and managerial skills. You won’t really be happy with a back seat now, you will feel confident in your abilities and will need to know that you are recognised for what you can do. The Sun and Mercury in conjunction between the 3rd and 17th is also a promising transit for sharing thoughts in a way that will help your career progression; this is a fabulous time to arrange important meetings about your performance or attend a job interview. Just make sure that you listen as well as you talk, as in your efforts to verbalise your fast-flowing thoughts, you may over talk it! The new Moon on the 19th also sends you opportunities to make your mark in a work situation, although with the Moon in opposition to Uranus, you will need to plan your actions carefully to avoid mishaps or errors.
With Saturn and Mars forming a dawdling connection between the 3rd and 21st across the parts of your chart which oversee spiritual matters, a crisis of faith could be on the horizon for you in October. There are some very practical vibrations around you now, and a sense that matters of reality and routine will preoccupy you, and prevent you from finding inspiration from a higher source. Opposition from Chiron during this period means that irrelevant facts and figures and dealing with petty behaviour from others will get you down; remember what you get up for each day and reaffirm why your life is meaningful and worthwhile. Have a great month!
