october 2018 horoscopes
Despite the fact that you are in the midst of a yearly love and social peak until the 23rd, love seems complicated. Marriage is not likely this month (nor desirable). Venus, your love planet, goes retrograde on the 5th and will be retrograde all month. So, there are many love opportunities happening and you’re probably socializing more than usual but the message now is to go slow in love. Allow things to develop as they will. Social judgement is not up to its usual standards. Venus will spend the month in Scorpio your 8th House. So, don’t mistake good sexual chemistry with real love. Venus’s retrograde (rare, by the way, it only happens every two years) also complicates the financial life. (Uranus in your money house is also retrograde, reinforcing what we say). So, earnings are happening but slower and with more delays. The good news is that the spouse, partner or current love is prospering - having a banner financial month - from the 23rd onwards. He or she is likely to be more generous with you. Health needs watching until the 23rd, but you will see big improvement afterwards. Arm and shoulder massage (and stretching) is always good for you. But hip massage and an herbal kidney cleanse will be good until the 10th. After the 10th detox regimes are powerful. It could be that a surgery is recommended after the 10th (you have a predisposition for it then) but best to explore detox first. An herbal colon cleanse might be advisable after the 10th as well.
Love is the main headline this month. There are many favorable developments happening. First off, your love planet , Pluto starts moving forward un the 2nd. It has been in retrograde for many months. This shows more clarity in love and better social judgement. Two benefic planets – Jupiter and Venus - are in the 7th House all month. On the 10th Mercury enters this House and on the 23rd, the Sun. 40% and sometimes 50% of the planets are either in or moving through this House - making it the strongest House in your chart. So the focus is on love. By the spiritual law we get what we focus on. Love is happy and successful. Singles have many romantic opportunities and seem to be dating various kinds of people. Even those of you already in a relationship are getting on with many different kinds of people and attending more parties and gatherings. With Venus in your 7th House all month you’re personally more popular. You are focused on other people and devoted to your friends, spouse or current love. The only complication is Venus’ retrograde. The opportunities are there but you are not sure of what you want. Finance is always important for Taurus, but less so this month. Your money house is basically empty. Financial opportunities come through friends and social connections (and this could be one of the reasons for the active social life). A lot of your socializing is business related. The message of the Horoscope is “keep the social harmony and finances will take care of themselves”. Health needs more watching all month but especially from the 23rd onwards. Be sure to get enough rest.
Your 6th House of health and work is easily the strongest and most active in your Horoscope this month. 40% and sometimes 50% of the planets are there or moving through there. This is wonderful news for job seekers - job opportunities - and good ones - are plentiful this month. Even those of you already employed will be having job opportunities - perhaps for overtime or side jobs. Your work planet, Pluto, moves forward this month - on the 2nd - another indication of action here. This also shows a focus on health. Since health is good this month this is most likely showing a focus on preventives and healthy life styles. If you’ve been planning changes to the health regime, this is a good month to make them. Children and Children figures in your life are having a banner financial month. Aunts and Uncles (or people who play that role in your life) are also prospering. Your love planet is moving forward and receiving nice aspects this month. So, love is at the work place or as you achieve your health-related goals. Stay healthy and do your job and the love life will fall into place. There is a very happy romantic opportunity coming for singles from the 28th to the 30th. For those involved in a relationship it shows a happy social period. Take it easy on the 10th and 11th and avoid speculations. Career is becoming more important these days as the planetary power is now on the day side of your chart. There is a special success and opportunity on the 19th and 20th.
Health and energy need watching until the 23rd, but will see very dramatic improvement after the 23rd. Financial disagreements with the spouse, partner or current love complicate the financial life, but this will pass after the 23rd. Prosperity is very strong after the 23rd - and next month will be even better. Until the 23rd you’re spending more on the home and family but also earning from this area. Family and family connections are important financially. Family support is good. After the 23rd there is luck in speculations and “happy” money. You earn it in enjoyable ways and spend it on fun things. Good to use spare cash to pay down debt. But if you need to borrow, this goes well too. The love life will also improve after the 23rd. The spouse, partner or current love will be less stressed, and this should help matters. For singles you are still in a period of focusing on quality rather than quantity - fewer, but meaningful, high quality dates are better than hordes of mediocre ones. Fewer, but good friendships are better than hordes of lukewarm ones. The month starts of difficult but will end well. On the 23rd you enter a yearly personal pleasure peak - a party period. Women of childbearing age seem unusually fertile after the 23rd. A parent or parent figure (and the family as a whole) is having a banner financial period beginning the 23rd. The rare retrograde of Venus, beginning the 5th, complicates the home and family situation. Avoid major decisions here until clarity is attained. Things are not the way you think they are.
Love is a bit challenging this month. The two love planets in your chart - Venus and Uranus are retrograde. Mars is in your 7th House of love as well. And, later in the month - from the 21st onwards - the Sun (you) makes stressful aspects to the love planet. Mars in your House of love suggests a need to avoid power struggles in love. The Sun opposing the love planet shows that you and the current love are distant - very far apart. This need not be physically (though sometimes it is), but psychologically. You and the beloved are seeing things in opposite ways. The perspectives on things are radically different. The challenge will be to bridge the differences. Though love is stormy not wise to make any major love decisions yet. For singles it shows more aggressiveness in love. Serious romance is not likely. A lot of these issues will straighten out next month. With your 4th House ultra-powerful this is not a strong career month. In fact, your career planet, Venus, is in your 4th House. Home and family IS the career - IS the mission this month. This is a month for psychological progress and psychological type breakthroughs. Those of you in therapy will advance. A great month for a move or buying or selling a home. Health needs more watching from the 23rd onwards. Make sure to get enough rest and spend more time in a spa or schedule more massages. Finance doesn’t seem a major focus which tends to the status quo. However, there is a nice payday from the 28th to the 30th. There is luck in speculations that period too.
The two love planets in your chart - Neptune and Venus are retrograde this month, but in spite of this love will be good. It might be slower than usual and there are glitches and delays, but love is happening. The 19th and 20th are especially good for romance. However, don’t rush down the aisle just yet. Take time to see what it is. Your social thinking is probably not realistic these days. The month ahead is prosperous. You’re still in the midst of a yearly financial peak until the 23rd. Mercury, the Lord of your Horoscope (and your career planet) is in the money house until the 10th. This is considered fortunate. The Lord of the Horoscope is always friendly to you. Like last month, the financial intuition is good. You are probably donating more to charities and causes (people who lack are usually not donating). You’re seeing deeper into the spiritual dimensions of supply and experiencing “miracle money” - money that comes in unexpected ways. You see the “hand of spirit” in your financial life. Elders, bosses, parents and parent figures are kindly disposed to your financial goals. You dress more expensively, and people see you as a “money person”. With your Financial Planet retrograde from the 5th onwards, avoid major purchases or investments. Do more homework - more due diligence. The main action this month is in your 3rd House. It is chock full of planets - and benefits ones. This is great for students, teachers, writers and marketing people - they enjoy good success. A new car or communication equipment is coming to you.
The past year has been prosperous and the month ahead even more so. Your money house is unusually powerful - 40% and sometimes 50% of the planets are either there or moving through there. This is a lot of financial power. Your Financial Planet Pluto starts to move forward on the 2nd after many months of retrograde motion. So, the financial judgement is good, and you have clarity on this issue. Family support is strong. The financial intuition is good - especially after the 10th. It’s as if the entire universe is conspiring to prosper you. Love is problematic. But for a Libra this is not that big of a problem. Your social genius knows how to handle this. There are two issues in love. One, your love planet is in the 5th House of fun, so you or the beloved are not interested in anything serious - only fun, games and entertainment. The second issue is you. You’re not sure what you want. Venus, the Lord of the Horoscope, is retrograde from the 5th onwards. This is not a month for marriage. With your love planet in the sign of Aquarius there is more excitement in love but also more instability (they seem to go hand in hand). Love and social opportunities can happen anywhere, anytime - when you least expect it. Though Saturn and Pluto are still making adverse aspects to you, health is good this month. You’ve gone through much worse this past year. As always enhance the health through foot massage and spiritual type techniques. If you feel under the weather, see a spiritual type healer. A happy travel opportunity comes from the 28th to the 30th. College level students and those of you involved in legal issues hear good news that period.
A happy and prosperous month Scorpio. Enjoy. The planetary power is focused in your sign this month. And, the planets there are benefic - helpful. You are in a period of maximum personal independence - especially after the 23rd. So, take the initiative. Make the changes that need to be made. Take responsibility for your happiness. This is a time where the world conforms to you rather than vice versa. Your self-interest is no less important than another’s. If you are happy the world becomes that much happier. Love is good but more complicated this month. Venus, your love planet, is still in your sign all month so love opportunities are pursuing you. The only problem is that she is retrograde from the 5th onwards (she only retrogrades once every two years). So, love is there but perhaps with delays and glitches. The spouse, partner or current love lacks direction. Your own social judgement could be better too. Though career is not a big issue this month happy career opportunities are coming to you from the 23rd onwards. You are seen by others as successful and you have this persona. You’re probably dressing this way too. Though you still need to watch your weight, the personal appearance shines - especially after the 23rd. But good appearance is not everything in love - there are other factors - as you will see in the month ahead. Prosperity is strong and will get even stronger next month. Health is good, and you are basically self-confident and full of energy. If this extra energy is used wisely, the month ahead is very successful.
There have been job changes of late and perhaps more are on the way. But right now, be more careful of this. The two planets involved with work - Venus and Uranus - are retrograde. Judgement here is not as good as usual. Things are not what they seem. Study all changes more carefully. The same is true for your health regime. The past year has been very spiritual and the month ahead even more so. Your spiritual 12th House is chock full of planets - and benefic ones. So, this is a month for making spiritual type breakthroughs. Your spiritual faculties are enhanced. Meditation and prayer bring dynamic results. There are many supernatural type experiences this month. The invisible world is letting you know that it’s around. Most of you are on a spiritual path, but if you’re not, this is a good time to embark on one. Health is good all month. Detox regimes are powerful. This is a month to go deeper into spiritual healing. You will get good results - but with a delayed reaction - it won’t happen instantly. Your love planet moves into your spiritual 12th House on the 10th and stays there for the rest of the month. So, love is idealistic these days. Be sure to choose the best. Get right spiritually and love will take care of itself. Finances are improving day by day. Your Financial Planet, Saturn, started moving forward last month. After the 23rd he starts to receive positive aspects. There is a happy romantic meeting from the 28th to the 30th.
Health still needs watching until the 23rd. You should see big improvement afterwards. You can enhance the health through hip massage until the 10th and through detox regimes afterwards. If you feel under the weather an herbal kidney cleanse might be a good idea until the 10th. After the 23rd an herbal colon cleanse will be good. Mars is still in your money house this month. Thus, you have good family support. You spend more on the home and family but can earn from this as well. You’re still in the midst of a yearly career peak until the 23rd, but progress could be slower than usual. Your career planet is retrograde from the 5th onwards. Career opportunities - and they are coming - should be studied on a deeper level. Your good work ethic impresses superiors and furthers the career. Also, good to be involved with groups, professional and trade organizations. The Full Moon of the 24th occurs right on your Financial Planet. This should be a nice financial day - both for you and the spouse, partner or current love. He or she seems temperamental that period so be more patient. The romantic life doesn’t seem that important this month - your 7th House is mostly empty - only the Moon moves through there on the 2nd, 3rd, 29th and 30th. But the overall social life - social life with friends - is very active all month and especially after the 23rd. This is a happy area of life. New and significant friendships and contacts are being made.
Mars has spent a lot of time in your sign this year - since May 16th (with a brief interlude from August 13 to September 11). This is unusual for Mars. Usually he is in a sign for a month and a half. So, you seem very involved in communication - teaching, writing, selling and marketing. The mental and communication faculties are enhanced, and students seem successful in their studies. However, as was mentioned in previous months, you still need to be careful of rush, haste, impatience and anger. These can bring conflict or accidents. You seem to be exercising more these days. The month ahead is both prosperous and successful. On the 23rd you begin a yearly career peak (but you are feeling this even before). Many positive things are happening in the career. You career planet, Pluto, starts moving forward on the 2nd. Your 10th House of career is chock full of planets - and benefic ones - all month. 50% of the planets are either there or moving through there this month. So, you are advancing career wise - achieving your goals - and have much cosmic support for them. The month ahead is prosperous too. Though your Financial Planet is retrograde he (Neptune) is receiving fabulous aspects this month. The spouse or current love, bosses, children and children figures, friends and family are helping with the financial goals. The two love planets in your chart, Venus (generic) and the Sun (actual) are both in your 10th House of career from the 23rd onwards. So, a lot of the socializing is career related. You advance your career by social means. Singles are allured to people of power and prestige and are meeting these kinds of people these days. Rest and relax more after the 23rd. Children and children figures have excellent romantic prospects from the 28th to the 30th.
A happy and prosperous month ahead Pisces. Enjoy. More importantly health and energy are excellent (and will get even better after the 23rd). You can enhance the health even further through hip massage until the 23rd and through detox afterwards. The month ahead seems sexually active - more so than usual - so safe sex and sexual moderation are important. The body will tell you when enough is enough. Your Health Planet moves in adverse aspect with Uranus on the 10th and 11th and this can bring changes to your health regime and conditions of work. Your Financial Planet has spent an unusually long time in the sign of Aquarius (since May 16, with a break from August 13 to September 11). This shows the importance of your financial intuition. Aquarius is your spiritual 12th House. So, the message of the Horoscope is “get right spiritually” - get into a state of grace - and finances will take care of themselves. Online activities and startups seem important in the financial life. Though your 7th House of love is empty this month - only the Moon moves through there on the 6th and 7th - love seems happy from the 10th onwards. The 10th and 11th can bring some romantic or social upheaval - but short term. The 19th, 20th and 28th to the 30th are powerful romantic times for singles. With 80% planetary power now in the day side of your chart, it is good to focus on the career. There is probably career related travel this month. You’re being prepared for a major career push next month (and for next year too).
