The Sun sizzles through your sector of children and creativity this month. Activities, issues, and opportunities involving children, your own or others, or other creative endeavors, take center-stage this month. This is an amazing time to take an art class or cozy up with awesome art tools and go crazy. Hidden interests or talents may be revealed and these are more likely to be discovered if you try different things.
For parents or parents-to-be, learning more about parenting from experts is a wonderful area of focus always but especially this month. Unresolved issues involving children or having children are likely to come up this month. Definitely take seriously anything coming up in these areas as there is likely much to uncover now you can receive great help to find answers and solutions.
A child close to you may cross a major milestone at this time. This could also be a time of positive breakthroughs with children, wonderful flow and time spent, and amazing memories made.
Looking at life through the eyes of a child can help to bring fun into dreary routine. Something fun to try this month is to set up some child-led activities. Asking kids for ideas of fun things or thinking about what you did as a kid that you enjoyed can help you capture the magic of this placement of the Sun.
Hobbies, pleasure, and fun for the sake of itself are all in the sector being highlighted for you now. Fun and activities from previous times may roll back through into your experience.
This sector also specifically enhances the arenas of acting, modeling, fashion, dancing, singing (and any other performance arts), and athleticism.
This month could have creativity in the forefront. This is a wonderful time to tweak, edit, re-do, or further develop anything already in process.
Regarding romance, so there is an increased potential for some love sizzle 🙂 Purposely planning fun with your honey is a great way to use this energy. The energy also burns bright for new love potentials. This could be an intense time for dating. People from the past may play an extra important role now.
Libra and Scorpio transits bring important people and financial topics to the forefront.
Navigating the arenas of shared resources will likely come into focus at this time.
Two Full Moons this month (on October 1 and 31) bring high emotion and intense fruition. The second one (on October 31) is a BLUE MOON! The veils between worlds will be especially thin at this time and extra magic (and possibly mayhem) will be afoot.
Mercury retrograde in a water sign (Scorpio) adds to the high emotion of the month and brings things back from the past in notable ways. Mercury is retrograde from October 13 – November 3 with the shadow periods stretching beforehand starting from September 24 and afterwards until November 20. Changes in plans are more likely and sudden opportunities or other things that need or attention will likely pop up. Uncertainty and confusion can come in as things that seemed solid appear to shift. You can see more about how to make the most of and the pitfalls of Mercury retrograde in my video and blog on the topic.
Mars officially shifts into retrograde September 9 – November 14 bringing a slow down of ambitions and for some, downright laziness. Using your ingenuity to figure out ways to do get responsibilities managed could be especially rewarding now. A major thing to now about this transit is to not push anything that isn’t naturally flowing and to avoid attacking or using force towards someone or something as it is more likely to boomerang back to you.
Mars retrograde is an amazing time for rest, vacations, stay-cations and play-cations. You will likely be glad if you choose avoid unnecessary, uninteresting, high-stress projects or ones that have demanding deadlines. Casual and flexible study or other projects are well-indicated now – basically anything that is fun for you and allows you step away from it as you are drawn. To learn more about how to roll with the natural rhythms of Mars retro, you can see my Mars retro blog here and my Mars retro video here.
Four earth trines can bring massive material manifestation this month! (There were also six of these in September!) Sweet outcomes from things that were challenges in the past are more likely now.
October, November, and December return us to ‘Eclipse Season’ and the final conclusions to the outer planet clashes in Capricorn that have radically changed our world will come to pass.
This time will vibrate with stress and uncertainty but also with alchemical potentials to turn lead to gold.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Cancer Horoscope is more relevant for you.
