The Sun whirls through your 4th house this month bringing focus on home, real estate, and home-based ventures.
The desire to spruce up or organize home may be strong at this time. This can be an amazing time for researching big design, building, decorating projects, and doing basic maintenance, repair and easy to change sprucing. Small and affordable projects are better at this time. For the big ones, the energy will be more clear towards the end of October into November.
This is also a fantastic month for cozying up at home. A fun project at this time is to do some Feng Shui treatments to your home. Deep cleaning, clearing clutter, and reorganizing is also in great alignment now.
Since the Sun lighting up your 4th house also means your family sector is lit up, if you are traveling this month, it is likely be to visit family or to a place that was or feels like ‘home’ or you may have family come visit you.
Family fun could enter center stage. Equally as likely could be family drama. Tread lightly on trigger topics with family and feel into doing work to dissolve your own triggers.
Topics of home, homes and housing will likely be very hot at this time. Life-changing events may be in store regarding these topics.
If you have real estate investments or are wanting to sell or buy a home, this month will likely bring much activity in this sector. Big news in these departments could come in now.
The 4th house is also the sector of childhood psychology, so things that happened as a child that are affecting your current situation (like patterns in relationship or elsewhere, that recreate circumstances that made you feel the same way you did when you were a child). The Sun in this position can light up things that are right and can also make more clear things that need improvement. If important actions have to be made working on the inner planes, there is much support at this time. If you feel ready to stop the patterns that have been holding you back, you can find great resources and make great headway now. Inner work is awesome at any time this month.
Diving deep into research about your ancestry, genetic testing, and anything else related to the past and your family carries great support now.
October 2021 continues our trek into the inward and backward focus of Mercury retrograde, whose pre-transit shadow period began around September 7. Mercury goes direct around October 18 and the post-transit shadow period clears around November 3. The time from around September 7 through early November brings focus to re-doing, re-vising, re-visiting, and anything that involves energies from the past. It is a fantastic time to wrap up unfinished projects to make room for the next open stars phase which begins in early November. You may notice the energy start clearing for the open phase for forward movement and clarity as we move through the second half of October.
Strong Libra influences bring the topic of partnerships and giving and receiving help, into the forefront. Mercury retrograde in Libra will bring up questions about relationships and/or things from the past coming up to be dealt with or enjoy.
Strong Scorpio energies add deeper dimensions to the relationship stories evolving now and also bring focus to shared finances, loans, debt, taxes, government or other support. The water sign brings high emotion and potentials for major psychological discoveries and healing.
Mercury retrograde dominating the month increases the likelihood of changes to plans, things that seemed set being called into question, miscommunications and electrical items breaking down but also opens great possibilities cleaning up unfinished business, fun blasts from the past, enhanced creativity, and surprise opportunities for fun. Try to leave some time unscheduled to make room for last-minute magic.

Jupiter turns direct this month and along with it, new information about and zest for international travel or other connections, languages, teaching, learning, writing, publishing and speaking may start to gain momentum. Jupiter moving direct can also facilitate finding solutions and can bring renewed hope and optimism.
Saturn also turns direct this month. Lots of factors, including this one this month, open up a time for great progress and advancement.
Eclipse rumblings begin in October as the eclipse ‘season’ of major change starts 4-6 weeks before the actual eclipses. The ending of the Sagittarius/Gemini eclipse cycle that started around March 2020 and runs through early January 2021 will bring a great wrap-up of the energies that started at that time. The new cycle of Taurus/Scorpio eclipses will start to show their trends and this runs from now through the end of 2023.
