Leo - October 2018
How are things, Leo?! Everyday chores should feel a little less intense in October, as passionate Pluto finally turns direct in your work zone! He is one persistent guy, and when he has a plan for you, he just won’t let up. This energy is even more concentrated when he is moving backwards, hence the past three months have seen your days overloaded with additional work, and in compulsively striving for perfection, you have found it incredibly hard to delegate. A more relaxed time is upon you, as you are finally able to prioritise and assign non-essential tasks to others. Pluto’s connection with the new Moon of the 9th sends important correspondence your way, regarding a new job or position, this will be a specialist role requiring a very specific skill set. Pluto and Mercury also form a belligerent aspect during the first week of the month which will reveal the truth about a troublesome colleague. The energy here is abrasively honest, so prepare for some surprising home truths!
Mars spends the month spoiling for a fight in your house of relationships, hence interactions with your partner are likely to be more confrontational than usual. Working in partnership with others now will be a highly creative and visual experience, with action speaking louder than words. You need to have your say and will not be railroaded by anyone. Mars and Lilith continue to link up here for the first fortnight of October, enhancing that inner fear of being controlled by others, and pushing you into some impulsive and highly rebellious behaviour in your love connections. Take care around new potential romantic partners entering your life now, your union is likely to be troubled and could be plagued with obsessive, possessive and extremely manipulative behaviour.
Family matters will receive a helpful communication boost from everybody’s favourite messenger, Mercury, after the 11th of October. Paperwork connected to your property, relatives or a partner’s work will be more prevalent for you, and you will find yourself dealing with the administrative affairs of those you love at some point. Mercury and Venus are conjunct during the days of the 11th to 17th, a connection which sends you important news about a long-lost relative. If you have been looking at properties, you will return to a house now that you have looked at before, and this time you will get the chance to buy or rent it. The days after the 23rd are also very favourable for discussing property purchases as Mercury connects with Jupiter. Family gatherings are also more likely now. Just watch for some difficulties with reckless male relatives between the 16th and 24th; they may threaten what would otherwise be a peaceful family reunion and it will fall to you to reason with them on everyone else’s behalf.
October’s Moon cycle culminates on the 24th with a full Moon in your career zone; this is a period when battles for promotion, creative work projects and general attempts to garner the attention of those you want to impress in your work place, will reach a pinnacle. You will find out now how successful your attempts to show the world how skilled you are have been! The Moon squares the nodes and conjuncts Uranus during this last week of the month, so expect to find yourself in the middle of a very public and sudden outburst of anger or frustration by a friend or colleague. Arguments with superiors are also more likely now, these will centre around what you perceive to be a lack of freedom to express your individuality. Have a great month!
