Virgo - October 2018
Hi there, Virgo! There is lots of planetary activity around your communication sector in October, to keep you firmly focused on how you can share all your brilliant ideas and opinions with the world! Venus is ambling around here for the whole month, turning retrograde on the 6th; talking about your favourite subjects could seem a little flat after this date, as you feel disenchanted around everyday conversations with ordinary people. Expressions of love which found a voice in mid-September could cause you some problems now, as you become uncertain about how you really feel. Mercury arrives here on the 11th to revitalise your conversations, hence you can expect to be doing a lot of talking during the last fortnight of the month. Mercury and Venus both sextile Saturn between the 11th and 17th, a fabulous set of connections for turning creative ideas into reality, and Jupiter joining the party after the 23rd sends you good news about a financial windfall or family member.
The Sun directs his magnetic solar energy at your finances during the first three weeks of the month, and the choices you make around money will be dynamic and positive now. If you are not feeling that you’re in control, this is the time to take charge of your accounts and ensure that you have everything running smoothly and exactly as you want it. You are more likely to purchase an item of significant value now, such as a car or motorbike, or book an expensive holiday. You may also spend more than usual on improving the security or exterior of your property. The new Moon of the 9th is, in general, a good time to begin a financial project, although the Moon in square with Pluto indicates some problems around overspending on non-essential items connected with this venture. The Sun also squares Pluto from the 5th to 17th of October; watch your spending on leisure activities, a new pastime will quickly become an obsession, and you will feel compelled to buy all the latest equipment!
Chiron is currently retrograde and during this reverse spell he is now making a brief return to your house of relationships. As he goes he will happily be stirring up all those feelings of hurt and rejection over past love partnerships, which you thought you had resolved earlier in the year. Don’t become too despondent to find yourself in situations where you remember the pain again, as lost loves reappear to remind you why things didn’t work out. This is a temporary blot on the beautiful landscape that is your love life, something is just not quite finished and there is a little more healing required. Be honest with yourself and this will make that healing process a lot quicker. Chiron and Jupiter make a powerful, positive trine this month across the heavens, which is fabulous for talking through old emotional issues in this part of your life and forgiving those who have hurt you.
The full Moon of the 24th crosses the nodal axis, so there will be a very karmic feeling around events which reach a conclusion now. The area of focus here is your house of travel, learning and spiritual development, so after a long process of struggling to enhance your knowledge of a particular subject, place or type of work, you will find you have acquired all the information you can, and that it will be time to put it to good use in some way. Look out for unexpected opportunities to travel, change occupation or join spiritual or psychic awareness groups. Have a glorious month!
