Welcome to your October 2019 Horoscope
Harmony and balance is the theme for this month. You are called upon to be both dynamic and flexible as the best way of being productive. Yet through all the activity, you are being encouraged by the cosmos to seek balance. Do not overextend yourself in October. Keep a careful eye on all your resources, creative, emotional, physiological, material and energetic. Do not allow one or two of these to be so much in focus that you neglect the others.
Feelings of passion, intensity and the quest to cast off the shackles of previous restrictions and frustrations, can lead to overkill and ultimately derangement of your energetic reserves. Slow and steady will win the race. And so remember Aesop’s tale about the tortoise and the hare. And this will call for a measure of patience too. Take time and give attention to the broad coverage of things you need to do. Keep things wide and varied rather than deep. Tunnel vision will not serve you well at all this month. Avoid both procrastination and perfectionism as well – both are very punishing masters. You have all the time you need!
Have a great month.
Enjoy your October 2019 Horoscope
How have your career choices impacted your financial situation? I’m asking you to scrutinise this closely in October. Cycles invariably begin and end. The most satisfying way this happens is when you achieve a goal and then set out upon framing another, ready for the next cycle. But sometimes decay propagates and if we inspect honestly we can see that we sometimes make bad decisions. The great thing about such review is that cycles are not inevitable. While a hamster stays on the wheel, round said wheel will spin. Hamster inertia ensues. But you are no hamster! You are quite capable of judging a cycle and any past decisions, wanting. One of the obvious metrics is the financial reward for career efforts. Hence my question: Are you truly maximising your potential? If not, you can alter course now.
You have hidden some parts of yourself away. These are not inconsiderable parts. But the good news is that you have also laid excellent foundations upon which to build your future. The way to release those hidden away parts that held you back from establishing your deepest desires will be a direct outgrowth of embracing new ideas about the details of your everyday experience, which have been growing stronger in you by the day. It is time for your thinking, speaking and acting to align around a new set of priorities. It looks to me as if you were formerly overly invested in guilt-driven activities to ‘prove’ something to some ancient phantom. I trust you have realised this struggle can and must come to an end. Your relentless quality must now make way for a less harsh, more relaxed, version of you.
Do you ‘go for what you want’? And, if you do, is what you want actually what you want? The things which drive us can, of course, be ancient. They may have nothing whatsoever to do with who we are today. I am not saying this is the case for you in October. What I am noticing is that your house of pleasure sees your ruler there at the month’s inception, along with the Sun and Venus. Of course, the mental and verbal functions are strong in you, but the emphasis this month is moving beyond their usual grip on how you perceive and relate to a wider reality, relating and non-mundane matters. So ask what has been driving you of late. Ponder whether or not those elements of creative freedom have been present that make life full of surprise and joy. View the unexpected as a gift, submitting to it willingly.
Deep passion, intensity and erotic energy seek to be released after a month where perhaps your energies have felt shackled. It looks from where I am sitting that you have the prospect this month of having a peak experience of bliss. This is not as fabulous as it sounds, but only because November will arrive! Sometimes these peaks lead to temporary bliss and must give way to normality – a bit like taking a holiday away from the humdrum, only to return to it. Alternatively, you could consolidate if you have your ducks in a row. If there were a month to get clear on the priorities between short term and long term, this would be it. But please dive in and savour the liberating delights of body and soul. Such things will help you get clear on those things you truly need in your life and also those that you don’t.
I’m sensing a harsh, authoritarian figure casting a shadow over you. A cycle needs to end. And if the world really IS your oyster then the pearl of great price needs to be identified properly. Punishing, old energies, seem to have cast a spell. That which is austere has somehow exercised a grip over your dreams, visions and even feelings. Leo is a fixed sign but you are being called upon to become more mutable. Healing is to be found through awareness, firstly. Looking within, it is important this month to dissect your ancient dreams of bliss clinically. They never materialised, did they? You kept imagining them on the horizon did you not? Why did they never appear? What was the true obstacle? New values, beliefs and understandings beckon. Leo, you are the oyster. Discover true reward beyond the old, worn mirages.
A partner may be going through a bit of a midlife crisis. But what do they need from you? It seems that you may be shifting your ideals somewhat about dreamy relating to practical and assertive ways of running your existence. I see you becoming naturally (by which I mean not forced) more assertive in recent times. Translating dreams into reality necessitates this. In the past, this partner may have needed you to be more assertive, less idealistic. Yet now, as you become more assertive in ways they always needed, you become more assertive! People come to life’s crossroads at different times. Hence why conflict and misunderstanding escalates. October is therefore ripe for questions. “What do I need from my partner?” “What do they need from me?” Please note, this can’t be worked out unilaterally!
I’d like you to examine ‘equality’ as an idea for a moment. Can you impose an idea on reality and change it for everybody? Or is that wishful thinking? Well, it is certainly a two dimensional way of approaching three-dimensional reality! What might be better as an approach for you this month? Order is not something that presents in a linear way. New thinking about what is practical is crying out to manifest in your experience. Your ideals are seeking to morph into something new. Also, please be aware that this transmutation may necessitate the release of some pent up anger. It seems you have carried a burden so long that you no longer even notice. It looks like you may have numbed out. This is actually a form of self-harm. So you’ll need to find a way to release this energy productively, rather than negatively.
How much do you understand your feelings in terms of the disruptive or unexpected actions and choices of others (especially significant ones)? New ideas seem to be emerging about how you express yourself. This is no crisis, by the way. But there’s a sense of other people’s actions making up a significant part of your navigational compass. The goal of fruitful living appears to involve a wealth of free expression. But how does such a thing destabilise the structures which provide your bearings? It may be that you are confusing your own need for expansion, with the restrictions that others seem to be imposing upon you, via their erratic schedules or unpredictable decision making. This points to how sacrosanct your routines may be to you. Life is a blank canvas. So release attachment to old paintings.
I want to ask you this month what you do with your sensitive side. Do you believe that you even have one, for starters? For a spiritually-orientated sign, it may seem strange to suggest that at times you deny your inner depths in favour of a focus upon simply the magic of adventure. But it seems as if somewhere we may locate deep within you a tendency to ‘stuff’ certain feelings beneath a practical and exciting outer focus. This gives you a pragmatic feel and a ‘get on with it’ sort of energy. But you are not an Aries! The depths within you are at least as exciting as the unexplored delights of the ever-inviting world around you. Of course, it is easier to navigate with the eyes. They can certainly distract, if not decoy us, from other important pursuits. In October, recognise that YOU are the adventure!
Baptism is a rite which is symbolic. We go under the water as one kind of person and come out as a new one. This is the outward expression of an inner process. With Saturn your ruler now direct in your sign and pulling away from the South Node of the moon, it is clear to me that your forward trajectory involves no longer being a person so defined by the past that the future can resemble nothing but Groundhog Day. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves having the courage to take the best of the old version of you and striding out boldly into the more pleasure-orientated, easygoing version of you. Your identity has been undergoing a form of healing through awareness. This month, pain can begin to make way for a more dynamic, adventurous expression of you. Accept surprise offers!
This month it looks as if you need to get clear on the relationship between the daily work you do and the career that you aspire to. A choice always confronts humans around that whole ‘stick or twist’ dilemma of card game infamy. A nourishing job is quite important for Aquarius to balance out your detached energies. Being ‘hands-on’ can be particularly important. However, such things can lead to neglecting of other needs around challenge, stimulation and indeed stretching to your limits at times. Aiming at a rewarding career is not intrinsically a vanity or prestige thing. We are not talking ego investments here. Rather this is about satisfaction brought about by achievement and the realisation of goals you’ve set yourself. A rudderless boat will soon be adrift once the ideal conditions shift. Time to go for it!
You really must impose some order upon your existence! Now is the time. We are arguably kept alive by our dreams – especially when things are tough. But in the end, we must all discern the point at which to make adjustments and concessions to processes which rob us of energy. You cannot evade such realities forever and must in the end adapt. This can be read as a loss. However, it may also be embraced as an opportunity. This can also be seen as accessing a deeper part of oneself, the part which simply knows, beyond the mundane appearances. Developing greater emotional depth and maturity is on the cards starting in October. Sometimes we reach out to transcend, but now the point is to establish comfort in swimming carefree, within your inner oceans. You won’t be doing this alone. Have fun!
