Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
October will always begin on a quiet note for you, with the wind down of your old solar year always beginning towards the end of September then continuing through the first three weeks of October. Wherever you are in the world and in whatever time zone, the Sun will have completed its move into Scorpio by 24th October. However, as is often the case, the lines between the past, present and future are blurred and will remain blurred for the majority of the month. That blurring of the lines begins with Mercury's departure from a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on 3rd October, leaving the Sun and Venus behind as he returns to Scorpio. Venus will make that same move six days later, with heart and mind starting to look to the future while your old solar year is still playing out. Yet even when the Sun does return to Scorpio that need for reflection will continue, with Mars beginning the nearly seven week wind down of your current Mars cycle on 4th October. As Mars joins forces with the Sun to close old doors, Venus and Mercury will begin looking to the future. Venus will spend the rest of the month in Scorpio and as the planet of love she will have fun working with dreamy Neptune, in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. Mercury, who normally spends 14 to 15 days in Scorpio will instead spend two months here, thanks to a retrograde turn at the end of the month. This gives you plenty of time to work on your choices, decisions and plans for your new solar year. In the meantime, a Full Moon in your work sector on 14th October comes just as Jupiter is looking to make the most of his final two weeks in your income sector. This could create unexpected potential or opportunities on the income and job fronts.
Week beginning Monday 21st of October 2019
The Sun's departure from a nostalgic part of your chart and return to Scorpio midweek will bring your old solar year to a close while opening the doors to your birthday month and new solar year. Yet both before and after one solar year ends and another begins the lines between the past, present and future will be and will remain blurred. With Venus and Mercury in Scorpio for several weeks now, heart and mind are already looking to the future, while Mars will remain in a nostalgic part of your chart, looking to the past for another four weeks. You even have Mercury turning retrograde in Scorpio late next week, adding to a chance to look back. Yet this means you can move into your new solar year with a sense of what you want from the get go and without the pressure to close old doors. In the meantime, there are some friendly conditions in play across the income, work and career fronts, especially midweek.
Wednesday 23rd of October 2019
While you already have Venus and Mercury in Scorpio and you have been exploring new options for weeks now, in the last full day of your old solar year brings a chance to reflect and look back. When the Sun returns to Scorpio tomorrow to begin your birthday month and new solar year, there will be a chance to hit the ground running, thanks to the fact that you already have heart and head in the game. With the lines between the past, present and future blurred this is giving you a better sense of where you've been and where to from here.
