Virgo - October 2019
Hey there, lovely Virgos! October is a month of interesting conversations and debates, as inquisitive Mercury sets foot in your house of communication! He arrives on the 4th and will be here for the remainder of the month, offering you plenty of opportunities for expressing your opinions and making new and mentally compatible friends. His sextile with passionate Pluto between the 16th and 24th is a time of intense and moving social interactions, and words voiced at this time will impact significantly on your friendship circle for some weeks. Mercury does slow down after the 25th, however, in preparation for his next retrograde spell at the start of November, so get any important discussions out of the way before then if you can. The new Moon of the 28th also shines a light here, sending you important information about a friend or neighbour; opposition from Uranus could add an element of surprise or shock to this news.
Lilith meets Neptune this month in your house of relationships, a powerful dynamic which could propel you into the path of a deeply spiritual and passionate love. Lilith’s powerful desire to be herself at all costs merges with Neptune’s imaginative escapism to create an ideal world where everything is perfectly as you want it. In all your partnership dealings this month, you will strive for this perfection, but if you can’t get it, it will be easy to retreat into a fantasy world which prevents you seeing relationships in a practical way. The key here is to embrace the magical, but try not to become too lost in your love life or in trying to achieve that perfect soul mate union. Virgos with birthday between the 6th and 12th of September will be especially susceptible to the distracting influences of this transit, as Neptune spends the month in conjunction with your natal Sun.
With the Sun blazing a trail through your house of money for the first three weeks in October, you should feel positive about finances and ready to make a plan for where you want to be next. A strong desire to take charge of your own security and ensure your future financial stability may also extend to others now, as a partner, family member or friend asks you to help them organise their accounts. Jupiter and the Sun in sextile between the 8th and 18th sends good fortune your way when buying and selling properties or making money from household clearouts; look out for hidden treasures in car boot sales and at local charity shops too. Issues around payment for a child’s activity or party, or a planned social gathering, are likely around the 4th to 13th, as social pressure compels you to pay more than you expected to create the perfect event.
October’s full Moon illuminates your house of regeneration and transformation on the 13th, and this is a rather intense and thought-provoking type of transit, as something in your life is completely broken down and rebuilt. Mental, physical and emotional health issues can be healed, as your body and mind have more energy and stamina to repair. Spiritually, you may also experience an epiphany, as heightened extra-sensory sensitivity sends you a significant psychic encounter. You might find you are supporting someone close in an important transition now too, or caring for a vulnerable person or animal, and your ability to nurture and heal others will be very powerful. At a more basic material level, this is also an excellent time for renovating a property, furniture, or any other item which needs some love and attention. Have a fantastic October!
