The lunar eclipse in your sign on October 8th lets you know if you’ve been making the right or wrong decisions. You reap what you sow, and you can’t avoid the consequences. If rewarded, keep going down the right path, and more will follow. On the 26th, Mars enters your career, goals, and life path sector, and you become more ambitious and focused on your goals. You can take a goal and create a plan of action, then take practical steps to achieve it in a timely fashion, and nothing can deter you.
The Mercury retrograde (appearing to move backward) will enter your work sector midmonth, and you can have all sorts of work problems. Coworkers are more difficult, your work environment becomes unbearable, you mess up on a work project or have to do one over again, or you feel that you don’t want to do the work you’re doing anymore and need out. Don’t make any rash decisions right now. Wait until your heightened emotions and passions have waned, and you have a cooler head to make a decision.
When the Mercury retrograde (appearing to move backward) begins, it’ll start in your work sector, so in the beginning of the month, you might feel like throwing up your hands and walking out over terrible coworkers, botched projects, or misunderstandings. Keep your cool and give it some time. Things improve later in the month when the Sun and Venus enter your work sector on the 23rd, and a solar eclipse occurs in this sector that same day. A great new opportunity can be presented to you, or you create one for yourself.
You can focus on work this month with Mars in your work sector for most of the month. You work hard, you have focus, you pay attention to the details, and you can make the sacrifices you need to make to get work done. You’re also better at taking orders this month, as long as no one is breathing down your neck while you’re working. Just make sure you’re giving yourself enough time off as well, otherwise you could work yourself to the bone and start suffering from the overexertion physically.
Mars enters your work sector on the 26th, and you end the month focused more on your work than anything else. You want to get organized, make lists, sort through the details, and figure out what you need to do when. You can get through lots of smaller projects, and should break down bigger projects into smaller ones to make them more manageable for you. Try not to take on too much though, otherwise you’ll overwhelm yourself and get in over your head, which will come out as lethargy or illness.
Your ruler, Mercury, will retrograde (appear to move backward) in October, and you don’t like that anyway because it makes you feel all off, but this also mostly occurs in your money sector, so it can also cause some financial problems for you. Make sure you prepare beforehand by getting your ducks in a row and having some money saved up and put away. Wait to make important financial decisions until late in the month when you’re not so concerned and have a solar eclipse on your side.
Mercury will retrograde (appear to move backward) in your money sector early in the month, which throws off your finances and makes it difficult for you to make good financial decisions. Then Mercury retrogrades in your sign October 10th - 25th, and everything gets thrown off. You want to scream, but it won’t last forever. You have the chance to turn around your finances quickly with Venus and the Sun entering and a solar eclipse occurring in your money sector October 23rd.
You start the month off on the wrong foot with Mercury turning retrograde (appearing to move backward) in your sign October 4th - 10th. Every little thing goes wrong, you have a hard time understanding people, you get into fights, you say the wrong thing, and you have a hard time getting a grip on anything. Know that it’s only temporary, and you’ll get the chance to right any wrong later in the month with the Sun and Venus entering and a solar eclipse occurring in your sign October 23rd.
You question yourself and your dreams in October, feeling that things aren’t going the way you want, or that a new block is some sort of sign that you should give up. This isn’t the right time for you to give up though. This feeling is likely temporary, and you need to just take a step back and not make any big decisions right now. Wait until later in the month or next month, and have some patience. That can be hard with Mars in your sign most of the month though, but you should believe in yourself.
You focus a lot on your career and goals this month, especially because Mercury will retrograde (appear to move backward) in your career and goals sector October 10th - 25th. You have blocks, delays, have to do things over again, make bad impressions, have misunderstandings with bosses or mentors, or feel that you’re going in the wrong direction. You find renewed energy for your dreams later in the month, and with Mars entering your sign October 26th, you have the drive to go for it.
Mercury will turn retrograde (appear to move backward) in your career and life path sector October 4th - 10th, and you have problems with your career to start the month, feeling that things aren’t working out like you want them to, and the new things you try flop. You’re frustrated, but things turn around for you later in the month with the Sun and Venus entering and a solar eclipse occurring in your career and life path sector October 23rd. You can start a new goal or make the most of a new opportunity.
Mars is in your career and life path sector for most of the month, so your ambition and drive is high, and you’re enthusiastic about your goals. You do what it takes to succeed, and you try your best. The lunar eclipse on the 8th occurs in your money sector, so you can be rewarded financially for your work if you’ve been smart, or punished if you’ve been reckless. You’re also more sensitive and can have shaky confidence if you find out someone thinks poorly of you, which impacts your ability to do a good job. Tune them out.
