Hey Sagittarius! Mars is smashing his way through your career zone until the 22nd of October, so tell your colleagues to clear the way, it’s your turn at the front! This is a highly dynamic and competitive transit, in which you will be pushing yourself to your limits in order to get where you need to be. Venus and Mars merge energies until the 14th, and this aspect will help you immensely, offering you the ability to let others know what you expect in a charming and amiable way. Saturn could be restrictive however, forming a tricky connection with both planets during the days of the 5th to 16th; this is a time when your attention to detail and desire to do things by the book could slow you down a little. Your responsibilities may not be taken seriously by careless others, and they may imply that you are being pedantic. Mars and Chiron in opposition during this time will also create issues around unresolved feelings of anger pertaining to authority figures or difficult customers. Work these emotions out so they don’t hold you back.
Jupiter leaves your friendship sector for pastures new on the 11th, hence you may feel relationships with friends fall a little flat for a few days, as all that optimistic energy flows to another part of your world. His next stop is your house of spiritual awareness, and here he will be pushing you towards making your soul happier by sacrificing your time for others who need your help. Opportunities to involve yourself in charities will be more prevalent now, you may also find your way to work in a hospital, prison, with older people or those with mental health issues. Jupiter’s conjunction with Mercury between the 17th and 22nd of October is also a wonderful connection for helping others to heal by offering a listening ear and encouraging words.
October’s full Moon illuminates your house of love and leisure on the 5th, and is a chance to take a long, hard look at how you spend your time, and whether there is enough of you to fit in all your responsibilities to friends and loved ones. A well-loved hobby could come to an end now, leaving you floundering as you wonder how best to invest your time. Something new is around the corner, so don’t despair! Pluto’s stressful aspect with the Moon here could make this a rather intense period, in which your whole approach to relationships is called into question. If you have children, expect them to do something marvellous and different at this time; their abilities will amaze you and challenge you to allow them more freedom, so they can continue to grow and move on to the next level of their development.
The Sun meets Mercury in your house of friends from the 3rd to 17th, a beautiful connection for discussions of all kinds with others in your social circle. You will quickly become bored now with those who drag your mind through repetitive conversations; you need to be around people who stimulate and entertain you. Mercury can be a fickle companion, so take care not to appear superficial in your interactions. Saturn adds positive energy between the 11th and 19th to add a new acquaintance to the mix; you will finally link up meaningfully with this person around the new Moon of the 19th. They may seem a little set in their ways, but their loyalty to you will be unshakeable, and as with all lunar-influenced connections, you have much to teach and learn from one another. Have a great October!
