Capricorn - October 2018
Hi Capricorn! Pluto turns direct in your sign on the 1st of October, and all those wild and turbulent emotions raging inside you will finally begin to subside! It’s not so much that the feelings have gone away, more that you will at last feel you have a constructive outlet for expressing all that intensity, perhaps through a creative project or physical activity. This is all about accepting how strongly you really feel about certain people or situations in your world, and dealing with the overwhelming possessiveness, jealousy or obsessiveness that these feelings are generating. Pluto meets Mercury during the first week of the month, in a challenging square which could cause some issues around applications for a new job or promotion. Competition will be intense and a compulsive desire to prove yourself will overshadow your practical, more rational side, which is really what you need to display in order to be at your most impressive.
Mercury crosses the Moon’s nodes from your house of friends between the 11th and 17th, an aspect pattern which could send you into a week of squabbles and unexpected revelations in your friendship groups. You will quickly be able to spot who is causing all the trouble here, it will be up to you whether you confront their behaviour head on or walk away. Calmer influences exert themselves later in the month, as Mercury’s warm-hearted trine with Neptune sends compassionate and sensitive new friends into your world who can really help you move forward with your life goals. This is also an excellent time to join a spiritual group or link with others sharing your philosophical, political or religious views. Jupiter and Mercury also connect during the last week of October, a time for meeting up with faraway friends or making plans to holiday in a group. This aspect is about shared life experiences and making memories together.
October’s Moon cycle starts with a new Moon in your career sector on the 9th; this is a fabulous time for a fresh start in working life, as you make a plan for where you want to go next on your career journey. Pluto’s influence indicates that the changes you make here will be highly transformational, both at a working and personal level. It’s time to show your best side to the world and let them know exactly what you have come to achieve, and how you’re going to achieve it! The full Moon of the 24th could bring an end to an important hobby or artistic project which has kept you busy for some weeks. With Uranus around, this conclusion is likely to come sooner than you anticipated, as funds are cut for creative ventures or a group or sporting activity is unexpectedly cancelled. Don’t be too disheartened, there is always a purpose around a full Moon ending, and that purpose is usually to offer a gentle hint that it’s time to move on to something new.
Mars joins Lilith in your money sector for the first two weeks in October, and this is a rebellious, highly impulsive connection which will have you splashing out on all kinds of luxury items and social activities. Financial independence will be extremely important to you now, you want to spend your hard-earned pennies on whatever your heart desires. This is perfectly understandable, but an element of practicality needs to persist in order for you to take care of your financial responsibilities! You may feel more protective than usual of your possessions, and arguments with loved ones over joint finances or items for your home are likely. Have a fabulous October!
