Happy October, you devilish Capricorn. At the end of September, the Fall Equinox and the start of Libra season encouraged you to find work/life balance. You think that you’re indestructible and that the world will fall to pieces if you take a day off, but hopefully, you’ve started to recognize that rest always makes you more productive in the long run. When a new moon occurs in justice-oriented Libra, and your 10th House of Social Status on Wednesday, October 6, new business opportunities just might come your way. Autumn is very lucrative for your professional life, so you’ll be thankful you had a chance to recharge.
Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, ends its retrograde on Wednesday, October 6 in your sign, Capricorn. It’s been retrograde since Tuesday, April 27. During this time, you felt compelled to tidy up, and not just with cleaning supplies. You may have deleted old Facebook albums of your ex or given away old clothing that you no longer wear. When Pluto goes direct, now that you’ve cleaned house, you can be fully present in your current relationships (and clothing).
Venus, the planet of romance, enters adventurous Sagittarius and your 12th House of the Unconscious on Thursday, October 6. Following the themes above from Pluto going direct, this transit asks you to evolve — or else. At the very least, it wants you to give up unhealthy relationship patterns and leap forward. For instance, you may work through commitment issues and finally propose to your one true love. Or, if you’ve been feeling too timid to get back on the dating scene, you finally start swiping and meet a perfect match.
Your ruling planet, strict Saturn, which rules ambition, time, and authority, has been retrograde in aloof Aquarius and your 2nd House of Possessions since Sunday, May 23. While the planet was retrograde, you reevaluated who you want to do business with. No more mean clients, no more accepting less than you’re worth. When Saturn goes direct on Sunday, October 10, keep an eye on your inbox, because there may be a bounty of professional good news. It’s hard for Capricorns to let go, but when you say no to jobs that make you feel crummy, you make time for projects that excite you.
The whole month of October is filled with planets going direct, making this a very productive month. On Sunday, October 17, the lucky planet Jupiter ends its retrograde in the sign of Aquarius and your 2nd House of Possessions. It’s been retrograde since Sunday, June 20. While the planet was retrograde, you worked on finding your voice and confidently asking for your professional worth. Now, when Jupiter goes direct, there should be even more welcome career news coming your way. Take a break from work and go out to dinner with friends or your lover. You deserve to celebrate. Planning a dinner or drinks will be easy, as Mercury also ends its retrograde on Tuesday, October 19, allowing travel plans and communication to flow easier.
