The Sun rolls through your 2nd house this month bringing great opportunities for making more money. Earned income often sees a boost during this transit. If you have money-making ideas or anything related to business goals, this could be a great time to take small steps along your continuum. The bigger steps will have more support towards the end of November, December and January 2021.
Finances could definitely see some improvements and also note that spending also tends to increase during this transit, too. So while you see the increase in the amount coming it will likely translate to an increase in the amount going out, especially if you don’t specifically make an effort to not have your spending rise with your income. If you put aside a certain percentage of your new increased income, you will likely be glad you did.
In situations where finances are challenged, the Suns presence can help you supercharge your resourcefulness and find solutions in expected and unexpected places. Keeping your scope wide as you look for answers could help in finding resolutions that could wind up even better than before.
Sometimes the Sun moving through this house brings information or insight about blocks to financial prosperity. Seeing the issue(s) more clearly can help to bring resolution. Some work may have to be donee other strategy to help increase extra income and the usage of income that comes in is very prudent now. Setting financial goals and getting educated or having other support to reach them can make your money dreams a reality in the future and work you did on this topic in the past could come to fruition now in a big way.
The urge to buy luxury or more expensive items may be strong now. This could be a great time for big purchases, especially if they are not mostly made of metal. Any purchases made of mostly metal may be better in the at the end of November or in December of January since Mars rules metal and the retro energies be in full effect all October and the first half of November.
The Sun in this sector also brings opportunities to re-evaluate your value system. What is most important to you in your life? Is the amount of time you are spending on those most important things in the right ratio compared to their importance to you? Asking bigger questions about things like this now will lead to valuable insights.
The sector of your chart highlighted now also has to do with sustainability on any and all levels. Asking questions about your imprint and sustainability of your lifestyle is well-favored now. Taking measures to conserve or live lighter and more simply may be topics that come into the forefront.
It is interesting that this same house that rules luxury items also rules simple living. Rolling around in the possibilities of this spectrum is what is being brought up now. Some who have been living with a lot of excess may be drawn to pare down, and some who have been living with the bare essentials may be drawn to expand their interactions with the material realm. Either way that feels true to you is perfect 🙂
Your self-value translated out into the material realm is also a major topic with this transit. Your earning power may be your most valuable asset. It may be time to think about how to invest in your earning power as your greatest investment.
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 Libra Horoscope is more relevant for you.
