October Horoscope for Aquarius
(January 20th – February 18th)
This month you may not think you’re in control, but things are happening that will move you closer to success. The key is communication – an Aquarian skill. You will need to express your ideas to others and in so doing create interest and respect. Your career is taking off, so just stay in the moment and keep a positive point of view.
The quest for Aquarius is to express what makes them unique. They love to stand with and apart from a crowd, and in so doing conquer one of the most difficult of life’s challenges: how to be oneself and still remain connected to the group. When they solve this conundrum, they receive the magic wand – the ability to bring change to the world and others. It’s all about love; gifted with a big heart that believes in equality and justice, they are dedicated to making the world a better place. However, love only has the power to transform when you love all of yourself, including your imperfections. When you can give unconditional love to you, then you will have the power to give it to others. To master power, you can’t be invested in the result; you can’t control others, you can only offer them your magic. When you try to control a moment, you dilute the magic and your power to initiate change. Give without expectations, give because you have a passion, but let go and you will be free and what you offer will be used in whatever way others can embrace it. This ensures your freedom and your magnetism, because it is our expectations and need for control that keeps us stuck and powerless.
The Full Moon on October 5th, sets off your 3rd and 9th houses (communication and beliefs). The crisis is between the mundane responsibilities of your life, and the need for change and adventure. It’s important now to let go of what doesn’t need to get done, and embrace something that feeds your spirit. Take an overnight trip into nature, play with a new idea, allow yourself time to dream and imagine, but don’t just organize you must also take action. Get your priorities straight. You are a priority. To be free you have to make the unknown your friend and have faith in the results. Don’t let the inconsistencies that surround you constantly throw you off center. Life will never be still, so you must find that stillness within you.
Pluto is in your 12th house and has been since 2008. It has taken you deeper into yourself and perhaps even isolated you in some way. Well it’s passed its midpoint and early in the month it makes a square to your Sun and Moon. It’s not enough to talk about your schedule or what’s happening, it’s time to discuss your deepest yearnings and emotions. Why don’t you feel free? What expectations have you placed on others that keeps you a prisoner? Take care of yourself. Put yourself first and you’ll be able to help others so much more.
Venus and Mars are conjunct in your 8th house of transformation. The passion and ideals that emerge now will lead you to understanding yourself better. Pluto supports this dream and it gives you the power to manifest it. What is coming is greater independence. I’m not talking about just paying your bills and showing up for work. It’s about the freedom to live your life your way.
Relationships need communication this month. You may not agree, but you’ve got to put your truth on the table. You can’t decide for others, only yourself, so let go of having someone agree with you. Just be you. Not everyone will go along with your point of view, but so what, if you’re comfortable with your truth then let others be uncomfortable. Whether you’re married or single be prepared for a challenge – not everyone will agree with you. For those of you who are not in a relationship, you could have a very romantic encounter. There’s no quarantine that it will last, but romance is fun and can be exciting. Learn how to receive and let go. If it’s meant to be, you won’t be able to scare them away.
Saturn makes a trine to Uranus at the end of Aries. You’re learning how to speak your mind; this is perhaps the most powerful thing you can learn to do. The more you present your truth to the world, declaring how you feel, the better life will become. At first it seems as if no one is listening, however, when you pay attention to what you say, others will. Not everyone will agree with your new ideas, or your passion – but then you’re not here to agree, but rather to be yourself. Seek out others who think the way you do. Find like minds and you’ll get the support you need to be who you are.
Jupiter will change signs October 11th and move from Libra into Scorpio, the ruler of your 10th house of career. Jupiter is abundance and opportunity. You have a year to bring home the prize. If you want to change jobs, you’ll get a better offer this year. If you need support for a project or a book now is the time. Others are paying attention. If you work for a corporation you may have a change of power at the top and that changes how you do your job. Whatever is happening it will bring improvements, not problems. This is also a time for you to express your wisdom and offer your advice. Others will listen.
The New Moon happens on the 19th and puts your focus on your goals. Embrace change. its a positive thing, even if it’s difficult. There is strength with Jupiter at the top of your chart. You’ve got the power now and you feel it. Trust in the change that is happening and don’t let it get you down.
