How are you Scorpio?! Jolly Jupiter is on the move on the 11th of October, and his next stop is your sign! As we move through the month, that eternal optimism and generosity of spirit will begin seeping into all your interactions, and you will soon be charming everyone you meet with your larger than life gestures and enthusiasm. It’s a wonderful time to exert your influence on those around you; your skills and knowledge will also be recognised now, and you could be called upon to mentor others. This will be especially true when Jupiter links up with the Sun after the 24th; you will find you easily dominate conversations with your honesty and confidence. There are some things to watch for however, when Jupiter plays such a central role in your solar chart, and one of these is excess of all kinds. It will be much harder to rein in your spending, eating, or whatever pleasures you find it hard to resist in life!
Neptune continues to exert his nebulous influence on affairs of the heart this month, his opposition with Venus during the days up to the 6th being an especially confusing one for trying to ascertain what the love game expects of you. Your desire for romance will be powerful now, and it will be easy to idealise the object of your affections into someone who fits your description of the perfect date. Reality is not your strong suit during this period, so it might be an idea to delay important choices about love until later in the month. The full Moon of the 5th may suddenly force you to see things more clearly and practically. Expressing your creativity could also prove difficult, as it becomes harder to verbalise the ideas and images in your mind. Chiron also challenges Venus from this area after the 7th, a time when you may find you are overly accommodating to others, because of feelings of insecurity or a desire for company. Or you might simply be tired of arguing with your other half and decide to be the bigger person and let things lie.
Mercury speeds through your house of psychic awareness for the first seventeen days of October, so pay close attention to dreams and gut feelings; they will be trying to tell you something important. The new Moon of the 19th in contact with Uranus is an extremely sensitive time for extra-sensory awareness; pay particular attention to unusual sounds and smells, which may be messages from the spirit world. This part of your chart deals with all that lies hidden, therefore it also deals with secrets, and as Mercury is not the best at keeping quiet, you may find that private information about yourself comes into plain view at this time! Mercury and the Sun in conjunction here from the 3rd to 17th will make it harder for you to keep others people’s secrets too.
Now that Pluto is finally plodding forward again in your house of communication, the frustration around attempts to express your thoughts should at least begin to lighten a little. Positive links between Pluto and Mars from the 1st to 11th are excellent for volunteering to help a local club, society or support group which you believe in. Friends will be supportive now too. Just be wary of saying too much in a troubling situation with a loved one when the Sun squares Pluto from the 6th to 17th; you will feel protective but they can handle themselves and need to be allowed to deal with things their own way. Have a fantastic month!
