Pisces - October 2018
Hello, little fishes! Everyday conversations could take a confrontational turn in October, as Uranus kicks up a storm in your communication sector! He has been in conflict with the Moon’s nodes since early September, and these direct links to destiny can cause turbulent times, as they push you to resolve karmic issues from the past by battling them head on. Difficult discussions with loved ones centring around your need for more freedom to be you, must take place now, and in these discussions, you really have to express your true desires if you are to make progress. The full Moon shines in this area of your chart on the 24th, revealing unexpected information which concerns a work matter or will bring significant changes to your everyday routines. A face from the past may return to your world now but the nature of your relationship will be different this time around; there is more work to be done between you and important lessons still to be learned.
Mercury graces your house of travel with his lively presence after the 11th, and will immediately find himself embroiled in a chain of connections across the heavens, which will greatly enhance your desire for new and exciting life experiences. You will be extra sensitive to your surroundings as Venus and Mercury link together between the 11th and 18th, and an opportunity could arise to revisit a place full of memories which you have not seen for a long time. Saturn also exerts his influence during this week, and a helpful friend will be encouraging you to begin a hobby that you have always wanted to try. Mercury and Jupiter in conjunction after the 23rd is a fabulous combination of energies for studying and teaching; this is a week for learning something new and expanding your mind, and subjects relating to foreign languages, law, psychology and religious studies will be especially favourable.
The new Moon of the 9th hits your house of debts, and important choices need to be made around credit cards, loans or mortgage applications. This is a good time to apply for tax credits or life assurance, if your accounts need an overhaul you will also find support now in the form of practical others who can offer you good, sound advice. The Sun squares Pluto from this area from the 7th to 19th, a problematic aspect which may create issues around borrowing and lending among friends. You could also be deceived by a neighbour or the friend of a relative now; be careful around community projects where money is involved too, as not everyone is as honest as they appear. You will feel protective of those you love and may have to stand up for them in a situation where they seem vulnerable.
Mars spends October in your house of secrets, where he also continues his passionate conjunction with Lilith during the first fortnight of the month. This is a highly psychic time for you in which trusting your instincts will lead you to important insights into where you need to be next on your life path. If a part of your life or personality is kept hidden from those who know and love you for some reason, this side of you is more likely to be revealed now, and you will have to reconcile these very different aspects of your world. Mars makes contact with Mercury between the 17th and 24th, a week for beginning a new sporting activity or securing an important business relationship with someone who is based overseas or has connections with a religious or political organisation. Enjoy your month!
