Taurus - October 2019
Hi Taurus! Mysterious and exciting people are about to enter your world in October, as Neptune conjuncts Lilith in your house of friends! These two enigmas only connect in the same air space once every nine or ten years, so this is quite a rare combination of energies. When influencing friendships, their joint efforts will find you new and seductive friends who will encourage you to try some very different and dynamic activities. These people will follow their own path and expect you to do the same, which will be an incredibly freeing experience for you. There could be some secrecy or attempts at manipulation in your social circle at this time though, and certain people cannot be trusted. You will need to negotiate private discussions very carefully. You may also be introduced now to a social scene where drinking or drug-taking is a key means of escapism, and you will be called upon to make sensible choices on behalf of you and your friends.
Mercury hits your house of relationships on the 4th, making it much easier to discuss those important issues with your loved one in a clear and eloquent way. Expressions of love and affection will also receive a boost from Mercury’s conjunction with Venus after the 25th. The new Moon here on the 4th is a fabulous transit for meeting a new partner or taking an existing love relationship to a more committed level, perhaps moving in together or getting married. Mercury’s positive links with Saturn and Pluto could also find you love on a trip abroad or with someone from a different country; you will meet this person around the days of the 18th to 24th, but with Mercury turning retrograde in early November, a relationship is unlikely to develop until the beginning of December. Uranus and Mercury in opposition between the 4th and 11th will also create an argumentative atmosphere which isn’t the best for compromising.
The Sun makes good use of his time in your work zone for the first three weeks of October, rolling up his sleeves and getting stuck in to all those tasks and chores that you have been putting off! This is a time of additional leadership responsibilities in your work place, as others look to you for advice and support. Conflict with the Moon’s nodes between the 4th and 13th could lead to a turbulent time with regard to your relationships with work colleagues, as everyone suddenly seems to be having a bad day. It’s not the best of periods for team-related discussions; leave these matters if you can until after the 14th. More positive communication from Jupiter during the days of the 8th to 18th sends good fortune in the form of helpful mentors or bosses who recognise your true value and want to help further your career.
The days around the 13th will see your energy levels taking a dip, as the full Moon nestles into your house of secrets. It’s time for a pit stop, as even everyday situations and people suddenly seem emotionally draining. Relaxation and reflection is important, as is working on your psychic development with some meditation or spiritual learning. The Moon does lock horns with Pluto here, causing you to question your aims and life goals and whether they are really in keeping with your spiritual development. Chiron is also retrograde in this area now, pushing you into some seriously cathartic healing of past wounds and resentments, particularly in matters of love. A new era is coming, and in it you will be stronger, more focused and much happier! Enjoy your month!
