Capricorn - October 2019
Hi Capricorn! Ambitious goats will be climbing high up that mountain in October, as Mars and the Sun, the two powerhouses of the heavens, battle for the top spot in your career sector! This is a very dynamic time for you in working life, you will feel assertive and energised, and are fully equipped to achieve even the most testing of goals which you set for yourself. There are some challenges here from other planets across your solar chart, however, which may seem to hinder your progress somewhat. Most significantly, both the Sun and Mars will cross the Moon’s nodes, during the days of the 4th to 13th and 20th to 31st respectively. Connections with the nodes mark points in our lives where it is necessary to check in with destiny to ensure we’re on the right track. Situations or people that are holding you back here will need to be left behind, and there could be some conflict involved in this process for you.
Uranus continues to create an excitable atmosphere around love affairs this month, as he spins through your house of romance in reverse gear. Feelings will blow hot and cold, so take care that your emotions are consistent before you make any important romantic choices! The positive side to his rather erratic influence here, is that you are increasingly pushing towards more freedom and honesty in your love interactions. As you make the changes which will lead you to a more fulfilling love life, you are also getting to know yourself and your preferences better. Some tricky aspects to watch for here involve Mercury and the Sun. Mercury’s influence between the 4th and 11th might create some disagreements with your date over how you want your plans to progress. Conflict with the Sun after the 24th also sends a difficult romantic encounter in which you are both a little too focused on your own aims to really commit further to your relationship.
The Moon will be full on the 13th in your house of domestic concerns, and this is a significant transit, in which stressful family relationships which have run their course need to be brought to a conclusion so that everyone can accept the end and move on. Jupiter merges energy with this lunar event, a highly positive link which will allow you to deal with these sensitive situations in a compassionate and positive way. If there is healing to be done around family relationships gone wrong, now is an excellent time to put that healing in place. The new Moon on the 28th sends brand new faces into your friendship group; these people will be interesting and fun to be around, and will reignite your excitement for social activities and socialising with friends.
Pluto turns direct in your sign on the 3rd, and as October progresses you should feel the oppressiveness of his recent retrograde period beginning to lift. It’s time to take back control of your life and desires, and begin to ask for what you really want, as opposed to what other people expect you to want! Capricorns with a birthday between the 8th and 16th of January are particularly susceptible now to Pluto’s passionate intensity, as he comes to a standstill over your natal Sun, and you may find it harder than fellow goats to get back on track with your plans. The south node also continues to influence the lives of those of you born during the first week of January, as a lack of energy and general enthusiasm temporarily prevents you from following up on your dreams. Have a fabulous month!
