WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OCTOBER?
Welcome to October. After the upheavals of last month with two eclipses shaking things up, this is an altogether more zen month, a time to get things done efficiently, calmly and co-operatively, not ostentatiously or overtly but under the radar if necessary.
As Venus enters Virgo on 9 October we're going to love doing things right, especially learning, creating, caring for our own health, our pets and their welfare, going greener and being more eco-friendly. A New Moon in Libra on 10 October brings new harmony to existing relationships and, for those seeking love, the chance to find a new romance. Mercury is still backtracking or retrograde through Libra and we won't be out of the retrograde shadow until the end of October so rethinks and even relinks to the past are strong possibilities now.
The 'under the radar' effect comes via the Sun moving into Scorpio on 24 October. While efficiency and harmony are the overlays this month, underneath that is a rising sensuality, a hint of suspicion (as in: why is everything going so right?!), a deeper interest in financial wheeling and dealing, and a whole lot of intuition and getting in touch with our spookily sensitive sides.
From 9 October until the end of the month love is a huge theme, especially if you're Virgo, Pisces or Taurus but it's an extra fabulous time to be lucky in love no matter what your sign is. There's more about this auspicious love phase (and others) and how to make the most of it for your sign in When Will You find Love? available
And finally, the Taurus Full Moon on 27 October - known as the Hunter's Moon and one of three super moons this year - signals an end to excess, overindulgence and the need to surround yourself with so much 'stuff'. Tap into this Moon energy if you want to declutter, or reprioritise your values, or if you want to drop a dress size in time for Christmas by kicking a sugar habit.
