This month is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. Friends, co-workers, clients, business partners, romantic partners or interests will take center stage. Topics like finding clarity about where you stand with people important to you, your relationship to them, and how it is best to move forward with re-connecting, collaborating, committing, or splitting will all take major focus at this time. Unresolved issues in relationships may come back into the forefront as may people from the past. Fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged. New and important relationships could also come in at this time.
The relationship with self is the primary relationship from which everything else extends and this time can offer great opportunities to evaluate inner issues honestly and motivate to take action on shifting individual patterns that can have profound effects on relationship patterns with others.
This sector that focuses on relationships, also includes the finding of perfect helpers. Anything from finding the perfect medical practitioner, therapist, electrician, accountant, administrator, has more promise now. Any type of professional that could help you in any area of your life, has an increased potential to be drawn to you right now! Wonderful synergistic arrangements hold great promise now.
This sector of the chart also has to do with aesthetics so you may have the urge to decorate, spruce up, or move things around, or make personal beauty changes. This could be a great time to clean up, clear out, and beautify your living and/or work space.
If you are on a budget, into environmentally-friendly focus, or just want to incorporate bonding with your friends, or meeting new friends into your redecorating process, something fun is to have a ‘home item swap party’ with friends. Each person bringing a potluck food/drink item to share and some items from their home that they are done with. Everyone will leave from this gathering with new items without spending any money 🙂
It also can be a great time for entertaining, and a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings. If the circumstances prevent in-person connecting, virtual friend or group connections could be how the energy manifests.
October 2022 steps into the heat of the last eclipse season of the year! The bubbling up of manifestations from the Scorpio Solar Eclipse at 2° on October 25 and Taurus Lunar Eclipse at 16° on November 8 are likely to start to surface even in September as “eclipse season” begins around 4-6 weeks BEFORE the actual eclipses start. Eclipse season tends to bring non-negotiable endings, exciting new beginnings, profound spiritual transformation, and surprising trajectory shifts. Drama, anxiety, insomnia, and feelings of profound changes afoot are all things that we tend to experience more notably as eclipse season deepens.
Big news and changes to finances and relationships are increased for all signs. See my Youtube horoscopes (or syndicated podcast, Astro Kisses with Annie Botticelli) for October and November 2022 to see additional sign-specific manifestations.
The tides are now strongly flowing inward and backward as we are both finishing Mercury retrograde AND officially starting Mars retrograde this month (with the Mars retro officially starting October 30). Dealing with things that come in to you on the tides, clearing up unfinished business, editing or revising, and leaving space for last minute magic. Leaving yourself as unscheduled as possible helps you to leave room for sudden surprise opportunities ( I like to call this “Last-Minute Magic”) that tend to arise during the retro times.
Libra and Scorpio energies both bring focus to the partnership sectors for all signs. The questions and answers to what is on your mind right now may have important pieces within people close to you and others who may come in at this time. Issues or sweetness can come back from the past, you may not to pick which comes in but it is of utmost important to deal with what comes to you instead of trying to force progress in any area of life. Finances, including shared money (like with spouse, partner, government, institution, etc) are also a top priority.
Mars in Gemini brings fun relief in your busy schedule and just enough distraction for you to return refreshed to your list of things to do. If you are a writer or are otherwise creating spoken, written, or other crafts, you will be highly creative and soar through your projects. Working in short spurts might help you to be the most productive.
