Sagittarius - October 2019
Hey, lovely centaurs! Friends are feeling feisty in October, as Mars kicks up a storm in your house of friendships! This is a time for straight-talking in your social group, and far from being intimidated, you will probably welcome the open and forthright atmosphere that ensues! Group activities with friends will probably more active and competitive too, and new people influencing your friendship dynamic are likely to be assertive, self-motivated and energetic. But there are some tricky days to watch for here where disagreements could escalate to significant conflict. Mars in opposition to Chiron between the 5th and 13th is an aspect full of anger issues and frustration around not being able to express yourself fully. Trouble with the Moon’s nodes after the 21st also sends you a chaotic week where friends’ erratic behaviour and refusal to co-operate with joint plans leads to quarrels in your social circle.
Lillith and Neptune will be sharing the same sky space in October for the first time in almost ten years, and the backdrop for this powerful connection is your home and family life. This combination of energies can be a magical one for intimacy and for really expressing your feelings of deeper affection and love for those around you; it’s also a fabulous period for sharing memories and reminiscing to bring you closer to loved ones. You do also need to watch for issues with boundaries, as your needs seem to become buried under the wants of everyone else in your household. Neptune forms some rather beautiful connections to support you throughout the month here; his link with Mercury from the 12th to 20th sends a listening ear in the form of a caring family member who can help with a personal issue, support which will be ongoing until early December when you are back on track. A trine with Venus between the 17th and 25th also puts you back in touch with a female relative who you haven’t seen for some years, and this will be a wonderful reunion.
Money matters will feel less intense after the 3rd as Pluto turns direct in your financial sector. Saturn is also making progress here again, and the pressures of making ends meet and supporting those who depend on you financially should begin to ease as the month progresses. There are still issues to iron out, however, as Saturn and Pluto form rather challenging aspects to other planets in the heavens. Pluto’s square with Venus from the end of September into the first week of October will put extravagant friends in your way, and their plans will involve you splashing out a good deal more than you anticipated on joint leisure activities! The full Moon on the 13th also squares up to both planets, a time for treading carefully around spending on expensive hobbies and leisure activities.
Venus arrives in your house of secrets on the 9th, sending your expression of emotions into a rather covert place. Self-consciousness, especially around romantic feelings, is more likely, and your natural confidence when interacting with those to whom you are attracted could be subdued somewhat, as you become more inclined to keep things closed in. Secret love affairs could arise when Venus conjuncts Mercury after the 25th, too, for reasons no-one else needs to know. The new Moon on the 28th here is an excellent time to finally reveal those important feelings to the object of your affections. If you can find the courage to express yourself in a heartfelt and honest way, it doesn’t really matter how they respond; you will feel empowered and liberated regardless! Have an amazing October!
