Hello Virgo! The world is a wonderful place for you in October, as Venus and Mars form a romantic attachment in your sign until the middle of the month! This is a warm and wonderful combination of energies, which will allow you to influence those around you with your infectious charm and enthusiasm for life. It’s also excellent for romance, as it stirs up emotions and spices up your romantic aspirations with longing and desire. With both planets linking up to Pluto during the first ten days of the month, these early days will see events take a very passionate turn, and if you love-searching or teetering on the brink of a new relationship, you may need to work extra hard to contain those feelings. Venus will also oppose Neptune into the first week of October, a time to tread carefully in matters of the heart. Potential partners will look much more compelling under Neptune’s idealistic influence than they may in reality actually be!
Mercury makes his presence felt in your house of thoughts and words after the 18th, and as he is the ruler of all things communicative, this really is a double whammy of intense mental energy. Virgos are naturally analytical and logical, but those skills will be significantly magnified during this period, and you may find yourself overthinking, over categorising and over talking! It will be hard to shut out the constant train of thought running through your mind, and some relaxation and meditation will be necessary, as well as plenty of physical activity to ease the mental pressure. Mercury and Neptune form an imaginative trine after the 22nd which will be fabulous for verbalising romantic feelings with your partner. This is also a highly creative period and excellent for fictional and dramatic writing of all kinds.
The Sun will be checking that all your accounts are in order until the 23rd, therefore you might notice that finances are in mind more than they would normally be, as you experience an urge to put extra effort into securing funds for a contented future. There is plenty of positive energy around here to allow you to really focus on this part of your world; it’s a good time to resolve issues with banks and other financial institutions, invest in money-making projects and improve security on your home or car. The Sun will oppose Uranus, however, from the 11th to 20th, and this could be a difficult period, as unexpected debts suddenly seem to hit you. With the new Moon on the 19th arising in the middle of this aspect, there are many opportunities around you to make money, but your choices could be impulsive and hasty as you strive to free yourself from financial dependency on others, so take care.
Pluto is finally making progress in your house of leisure and creativity in October, hence tackling artistic and imaginative work should feel a little less frustrating. Pluto’s presence in a chart is of course, deeply transformational, so creative work of any kind should be a cathartic experience for you at this time, as you dig deep into your personal well of emotional pain and joy, to produce some very striking efforts. This can be an uncomfortable process as well as a rewarding one, and Pluto will square up to the full Moon of the 5th, which is likely to be an especially intense period for dealing with personal issues of loss and commitment. Be careful also around all forms of gambling and payments for leisure activities around this date, you could easily go overboard with your spending. Enjoy your October!
