Libra - October 2019
Happy Birthday Libra! In addition to this special time being a celebration of another year of life, it is of course also a very important month in your astrological calendar, as the Sun returns to the place in your solar chart that he occupied when you were born. It’s a period of positive energy and courage, and for looking forward to the next year and what you want to achieve. With dynamic Mars also in your sign, you will be feeling confident and adventurous, and that you can conquer pretty much anything, so use this energy to work towards some of your most desired dreams and ambitions. There are a couple of tricky times to navigate, most significantly the days of the 4th to 12th and 21st to 30th when the Sun and Mars both square up to the Moon’s nodes. Conflicts with loved ones are more likely here, as they suddenly seem to be throwing obstacles in the way of your plans.
As Uranus continues his retrograde spin in one of your financial houses, it may feel more and more difficult to keep on top of your debts. Credit card and loan repayments could begin to spiral out of control now if you don’t put a proper plan in place, and all of a sudden the luck behind those chances you have been taking with your money is running out! Opposition from Mercury and the Sun during the days of the 5th to 11th and 24th to 31st could be especially troublesome, as unexpected bills or pay cuts make it harder to manage. The new Moon of the 28th also conflicts with Uranus, so while this is a fabulous time to make some extra cash, you do need to make sure that you have all the facts before you take on a new money-making venture.
Lillith finally catches up with Neptune in your work zone this month, after chasing him through the heavens all through September. The mix of energies here is highly creative and imaginative, and it’s a wonderful time to share your creative vision with colleagues and superiors. If work is in any way mundane or uninspiring now, you will feel a strong urge to change things around and move on to something more exciting. Think carefully before you make that leap; Lilith’s impulsive, independent energy combined with Neptune’s disregard for boundaries, could take you into some rather reckless and irrational choices! Neptune’s fabulous trine with Venus here from the 17th to 25th will help you immensely in pitching your ideas to those who are interested. This is also a time for generosity and compassion with those around you, for unifying bickering team mates and pacifying angry customers.
The Moon turns her attention to your love life on the 13th, as the full Moon illuminates your house of relationships. This culmination of the lunar cycle, as always, brings inevitable endings to your world, as you draw a line under relationships and situations which are hindering your spiritual growth. If life with your partner really is becoming intolerable, triggers at this time will push you to walk away and start afresh. But this transit can equally signify the completion of joint projects you have been working on together, such as renovating a home or starting a business with each other. This could be a time to look back over what you have achieved together and be happy about your collaboration, but in the same process, it might also be useful now to take some time out just for you, and review your individual goals and desires. Have a wonderful October!
