Happy Birthday Libra! With the Sun on your side until the 23rd of October, this is a fantastic month to focus on your self-expression, and allow your creative energy to make a real impact on the world! Whilst this process should generally be a positive one, there is also a tendency to be rather self-conscious during this period, as you become more aware of the impression you give to others. The new Moon of the 19th is marvellous for changing your appearance in some way or paying attention to your personal life and working out a way to make your world a happier place, although opposition from Uranus could make those changes rather radical and sudden! The Sun and Pluto vying for the upper hand during the days of the 4th to 17th may also take you into a conflict in your domestic world, which will make you feel a little overlooked and lonely. It’s important that you stand your ground here and remember that you are entitled to a peaceful, happy home environment where you can totally be yourself.
Jupiter makes an important sign change this month, on the 11th he will move out of your sign and focus his expansive energy on your finances instead. You may notice a slight dip in your positive mood as he departs, but the good fortune he is about to shower on all things money-related should compensate for this! Making extra cash should start to be easier over the next few weeks as he settles in here, and you will certainly feel destiny has a hand in pointing you in the right direction for beneficial financial investments. Jupiter and Mercury in trine between the 18th and 22nd, is a wonderful combination of energies for discussing ways to make more money, this is also a good time for buying and selling, your ability to barter and persuade will be very strong. Once the Sun gets involved after the 24th, support for your financial projects will come from a magnanimous and very supportive source.
Your psychic world will benefit from Venus’s happy influence during the first two weeks of October; it is likely that your interest in all things spiritual will increase, and you will find the most joy for you comes in quiet periods of contemplation. Feelings will be harder to express; it isn’t the best of times for encounters in which you are expected to talk about your emotions. Venus and Chiron in opposition from the 6th to 15th may reignite pain from past romantic liaisons, as something happens in your personal life which reminds you of a previous rejection or betrayal. This is a period for healing and regenerating, and this intensely reflective time will further enhance your intuition and sensitivity to others’ needs and motivations. Difficulties with Saturn during these days may also affect your health, as emotional vulnerability or worry leaves you open to illness and low energy levels.
The Moon will be full on the 5th in your house of relationships, and this really is a time for focussing on your love life and working out what you want to happen next. The Moon opposes Mercury here, suggesting arguments and profound disagreements with your loved one around important issues such as values and ethical opinions. It could be failure to agree on these things which pushes you to consider whether you really have a future together. Uranus also opposes Mercury from this area between the 11th and 20th, so expect sudden revelations within your close relationships which will change the course of your plans. Have a magnificent October!
