ASTRO FORECAST OCTOBER 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19): October brings with the changing leaves, a personal attitude of altering your own colors and spots.  Venus rules this season of relationships which encourages you to become part of your community.  With joint resources in the stars, you will benefit from some elbow rubbing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your work environment is a very important reflection of your day to day activities.  Probably some of your best friends have resulted from work related bonds.  Venus is moving into your partner sector so, be aware and open to a personal connection or possible new work associate. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Who said you can’t have fun while everyone else is busy working?  Gemini, all of the planets are transiting in your fun house this month of October.  Relish in travel, creative pursuits, socializing with new acquaintances, and planting seeds for work related projects.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Visitors, home improvements, and beautifying your life is the highlight for your October forecast.  You might be feeling particularly attached to your abode this fall and enjoy the harmony of home life.  Enjoy the balance and tranquility of your space and the social opportunities that follow.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Entering into Fall on the equinox, had you dealing with a whirlwind of information from many different sources.  How can you use your hidden talents to dispatch that knowledge?  My advice to you is to not push too hard, nor try to escape it.  Instead, develop a strategy to cover the most ground with the least effort.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22):  The Libra energy of October is hanging out with your possessions and values.  This is a time to look at what assets you are sharing or should be sharing.  Be wary of messages or correspondence not seeming clear during this transit.  Take time and patience to reevaluate your terms.  

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The harmonic trapeze artists of the zodiac are obsessed with fine delicacies, being surrounded with beautiful items, and enhancing their good looks .  Since the Sun is in Libra, it is only right to relish in luxuries in the weeks where you shine.  A word of warning: be wary of overindulging with limited resources.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What can you accomplish behind the scenes in the next few weeks before the Sun moves into your sign on October 23?  There could be a secret group or committee that you would like to create or maybe make some personal changes in your home life.  Whatever it is, keep silent, and just do it!

SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21): It appears that you are juggling a few aspirations during this Libra time.  You will get more accomplished if you  gather a team of organizers to help you along the way.  This can cause some unplanned expenditures  but, it seems a necessary way to move forward.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): With the planets in Libra, you are probably searching for more balance and harmony in your life.  This energy promotes you goats to take a few days off to reassess  your spiritual goals versus the “workaholic” tendencies that you’ve had throughout the summer.  The work will always be there but, watching leaves fall only happens once a year.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  If Aquarians could chanel their erratic brainwaves, they would be masters of the universe!  This month allows for some opportunities to balance your personal skills along with leveling out some bumpy relationships.  To listen wholeheartedly is a true gift.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Last month there were a lot of lessons learned with those who surround you while adjusting your day to day activities.  This month, you want to take some of that wisdom and weave it into your own personal evolution.  Be optimistic and watch the beauty unfold.

ASTRO COUNSEL FOR APRIL

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You just might want to devote the first few weeks of April on YOU. As Mercury is in retrograde in your sign until April 15th, take any opportunity to change your hairstyle, amp up your work out, get a physical, or see a therapist. Mind, body and soul is the complete triangle. Be careful to not take any rash actions in your career until the end of April, you probably will change your mind by then.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Delays in life can be frustrating. April will be full of them, my favorite Bull. Instead of focusing on the things that don’t move forward, take this time to attract relationships that could support and sustain you, both financially and with pleasure seeking. If you need to learn something new to make that happen, do it! Set a goal and don’t forget to notice the beauty that surrounds you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have been chosen to be the Activity Leader, Teacher, or Group Organizer. This is the perfect role for you, Gemini, as you excel as the educator and shine in organizational activities. Since your sign is ruled by the planet Mercury and we will be experiencing a Mercury retrograde until the third week of April, I advise you to be tactful with diplomacy of communication. Make sure that everything you convey is clear and concise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Have you ever experienced an Identity crisis? It is the condition of being uncertain of one’s feelings about oneself with regard to character and goals. Cancer folks can be experiencing this crisis in their career sector. Sometimes misunderstandings in the work place can eat away at your reputation. Act with stern diligence to iron out any concern in question. Keep attention to the details and use your authority as “the expert” in the field to remind them of how really valuable you are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): American author, Brian Herbert, has written that: “The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; and the willingness to learn is a choice.” I encourage you to learn whatever you need to carry with you in your overflowing bag of tricks during this Mercury retrograde. It could be a spiritual awakening or an academic feat. Whatever the cause, don’t make haste to complete it, even if there are unpredictable delays or interruptions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22): The planet that rules the sign of Virgo is Mercury. We will be in the depths of a Mercury retrograde until April 15th. During this season of Spring, you might have the urge to transform the way you think and the way you express yourself. How about a new you? I like that idea. Start structuring a new creative approach to your life and be the star of your own movie. Think outside of your usual well constructed box and dare to be different and unique.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Spring has sprung in your house of romance! Now don’t get too excited, since we are in a Mercury retrograde, that could mean that you have some unresolved relationship issues to deal with along the way. These issues need to be addressed carefully. Since Mercury is our communication planet, be uber cautious of how you express yourself during this time. Those of you who are unattached might experience a new fling or a delightful blast from the past.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): All of the hard work that you’ve been doing to improve your daily routine and work habits should start paying off in April. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced everyday. During the Mercury retrograde until mid April, Scorpions will want to complete any unfinished tasks at work or rework some plans that were already on the table for discussion. Getting these minor details out of the way could open new doors into a financial breakthrough.
SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21): Sag, isn’t it long overdue for you to shake up your creative juices? There have been some projects that you have thought about starting or learning and here you have it! This Mercury retrograde is insisting that you get down to business! Fun-filled, artistic, and playing-like-a-child business that is. As we settle into Spring, you will be chomping at the bit to maybe revamp your home design by adding an adventurous color for your walls or commencing a new springtime family tradition.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Have you ever felt that you were speaking a foreign language that no one understands? The Mercury retrograde is sitting in your house of communication. By nature, you already struggle truly expressing yourself but, the month of April might be doubly trying for you. Everything that comes out of your mouth seems to go through a voice distorter of sorts. That goes for your electronics also, where things might get lost and confused. Have no fear, all will return to a normal state by April’s end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Beware of little expenses; a small leak can sink a mighty ship. Even though Spring is in the air and you may crave some small indulgences, remember that they all add up. Instead, take the month of April to review your finances and savings. Look at all of your assets and acquisitions so you can review the importance of each one. Whatever you’ve outgrown or not used for the past year, would be a wise idea to pass on to others less fortunate.
PICSES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is your moment in the sun. Enjoy the rewards and recognition that come your way, more so in your public life than in your personal one. You can shine at work while achieving some goals or at the very least, acknowledging the adjustments that you’d like to make in the future month. Keep your personal dramas down to a minimum and release all of what you can’t control.
