Having Saturn in Capricorn, your opposing sign can be challenging and not just for you but for your relationships as well. That was especially so during the middle months of the year, when a parade of planets moving through Cancer all faced an opposition with not only Saturn in your relationship sector but Pluto as well. Added to this is the fact that you have the lunar nodes policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs all year. This was further compounded by a pair of eclipses during your birthday month. Until Saturn turned direct last month it was hard to move on from those months, with Saturn's job being to make sure you first learnt from them. By the time Pluto turns direct on 3rd October Jupiter is just two months away, which is when both the personal and the relationship boot camp of the last few years will prove its worth. In the meantime, with Mars not leaving your communication sector until 4th October, you begin the month with the means to ensure the communication lines are open from the get go. It was Mars friendly alliance with Pluto late last month that has allowed the planets of war and revolution to declare war on any remaining communication barriers. It is then that Mars will turn his focus onto home and family matters for the first time in two years, but also at the point in any year when this is where the Sun is focused. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your home and family sector, with Mars returning with the energy, drive and enthusiasm to make things happen and get things done. This will free Venus and Mercury to move on, with Mercury returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 3rd October and Venus six days later. Mercury will like it here so much that instead of moving through in 14 to 15 days, as he normally would, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep him here for two months.
Week beginning Monday 21st of October 2019
The Moon is making an impact this week and as a Moon ruled sign, this will give you a window into some up and coming areas of your life. To start with, just beginning the week with the Moon in Cancer is an advantage, giving you an intuitive edge from the get go. By Tuesday the Moon will not only be in your income sector but just as Jupiter moves into his final six weeks in your work sector and when a new sense of what's possible is emerging. Not only that, it comes just as there is also a clearer sense of your needs and priorities, especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. Days later the Moon will find itself in your communication sector, just as there is a growing sense of relationship confidence. This is the Moon's first visit since both planets in your relationship sector have been in direct motion and with lucky Jupiter just six weeks away, confidence in the future is rising.
Wednesday 23rd of October 2019
There is a timely encounter between the Moon and Jupiter today that is doing more than create some positive conditions on the income and job front. This comes just as there is not only a growing sense of job confidence and enthusiasm but a better understanding of your needs and priorities, in terms of job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. After last week's Full Moon in your career sector energised things professionally, the Moon's nose for money is a chance to steer things in a lucrative direction.
