Aries - October 2019
How are you, Aries?! October is the month for reflecting on your plans and goals, as the full Moon of the 13th shines a light on your sign! It’s time now to look back at how far you’ve come with all those things you hoped to achieve over the past six months. In this process of reflection you may need some alone time, as you suddenly feel overwhelmed by all the problems friends and loved ones want you to solve for them. Chiron is also retrograde in your sign now, and again here, we see a strong urge for solitude as you work through personal issues of self-esteem, aggression and assertiveness. Chiron’s strong healing abilities will be particularly useful at this time for rams with a birthday between the 21st and 28th of March, as he hovers over your natal Sun. Repairing old wounds, mental and emotional, will be a cathartic process, but will inevitably involve dealing with some challenging feelings.
Mars arrives in your house of relationships on the 5th, and life with your other half is likely to become more confrontational than usual, as a strong need for self-expression on both sides decreases the chance of compromise. New love partners arriving in your world now will be assertive, confident and possibly a little intimidating at first! On a positive note, Mars will encourage honesty and assertiveness, not just in love relationships but with business partners, ex-partners, and anyone with whom you have a legal contract, such as a landlord or tenant. Mars does conflict with the Moon’s nodes after the 20th, and these last days of the month could be stressful, as arguments with these kinds of people seem unpreventable; you will need to tread carefully here to get what you want. Important lessons in anger management need to be learned between the 5th and 12th too, as Mars opposes Chiron.
With both Saturn and Pluto finally moving forward again in your career sector in October, aims and ambitions will be back on track, and you will feel more positive about your working future. We continue to see those demanding situations arising, which will push you into roles with additional responsibilities and workloads. This is all part of an important learning curve, which will provide you with the skills you need to fulfil your destiny as an inspiration and pioneer for others. Pluto squares the Sun during the days of the 8th to 18th, an intense connection centred on some serious manipulation and attempts at control by superiors, or others who are threatened by your talents. Much of what goes on here will be covert and you will probably sense something is amiss but not be able to quite ascertain what’s happening. Be careful who you trust and make sure all your work is completed thoroughly and efficiently.
Financial concerns could hit you during the week of the 4th to 11th, as Mercury opposes Uranus from your house of debts. Unexpected outgoings may prevent you from spending on leisure activities as freely as you would like during this period. More promising energy comes from Venus after the 9th, making the latter half of October positive for securing loans and establishing payment plans to pay off debts. The new Moon of the 28th is fabulous for claiming refunds and inheritances; you could also receive a surprise windfall now which will ease your financial burdens somewhat. Venus and Saturn in sextile from the 17th to 25th send good fortune to loved ones in their quest for pay rises or promotions, and selling properties now will be very beneficial. Have a wonderful month!
