Scorpio - October 2019
Hi Scorpio! Expressing your thoughts and opinions to the universe will be top of the priority list in October, as Mercury arrives in your sign! Mercury is a busy guy and likes to analyse, criticise and categorise everything he sees, so expect your powers of concentration to be working overtime now, as your mind races with possibilities. A supportive sextile with Saturn from the 12th to 20th is excellent for tuning in to practical matters such as organising accounts or planning an itinerary for an important event. His conjunction with Venus after the 25th also looks positive for social interactions of all kinds, particularly those where diplomacy and social etiquette are necessary. Mercury does begin to lose speed as we reach the last week of the month, in preparation for a direction change in early November, therefore the days after the 24th could become more difficult for self-expression. Scorpios born between the 15th and 23rd of November will feel especially frustrated here as Mercury slows down on your natal Sun.
The Sun is resting up in your house of secrets for the first three weeks of the month, so it’s time to tread carefully with your health and take extra care of yourself. Energy levels are likely to drop as the Sun finds it hard to express his power here; don’t be too hard on yourself if you suddenly can’t keep up the pace of your busy life in the usual way. He also runs into difficulties with Pluto from the days of the 8th to 18th, a challenging time when your desire for peace and quiet is broken by noisy neighbours or troublesome issues in your local community. Don’t be drawn into battles for control here, you will waste that much-needed energy on a situation which, if simply left alone, will resolve itself by the end of the month.
Your house of work plays host to the full Moon of the 13th, and this is a time for finishing off important work projects and moving forward to the next phase of your career. Temporary jobs or creative ventures are likely to end now and you will need to look for something new to bring in those extra pennies. Jupiter trines the Moon at this time, sending positive vibrations around money-making opportunities, particularly those connected to teaching, training, freelance writing and legal work. You may also be offered work in a different country now. If your current job is getting you down, it’s a good time to think about where you want to be next. This is a period when if you are overworked or overstressed, your body and mind will let you know about it. Don’t let others make you feel guilty about paying some attention to yourself!
Uranus persists in stirring up trouble in your relationship sector throughout October, opposing several planets from this area as the month passes by. Problems with Venus during the week of the 9th to 16th will create confusion around feelings of love and attraction, as emotions run hot and cold, and indecisiveness prevents you making secure choices about this part of your life. Uranus and the Sun in conflict after the 24th might also send you into battles of will with your other half, as you both demand freedom to pursue your own aims. The new Moon in your sign on the 28th will also oppose Uranus; this is a time of fresh starts and new projects in your personal life, but again, watch out for those disruptive partners trying to steal your thunder and have it all their own way. Enjoy your month!
