Getting along with others can make the difference between stagnation and success this month. You tend to be independent, which can make it challenging for you to compromise or to see things from others' points of view. But that's key with the Sun in accommodating Libra and your 7th House of Partners until October 22.
Working your way around problems instead of trying to overpower them is also useful due to Venus' entry into adaptable Virgo on October 3. This transit occurs in your 6th House of Employment, where you're rewarded by developing your skills and adjusting to the tasks at hand. Finesse is much more important than force, at least until the Sun's entry into potent Scorpio on October 22, when a steadier and more willful approach can come in handy.
Fortunately, giving ground in how you work does not mean that you're going backwards in your career. Your energetic ruling planet Mars blasts into adventurous Sagittarius and your visionary 9th House on October 6 to raise your aspirations to new heights. When you're working for a cause in which you believe or for a goal that inspires you, it doesn't feel like a sacrifice to make some concessions along the way.
The New Moon in Libra on October 15 lands in your 7th House of Relationships, which is favorable for making contacts in your current situation or to pursue a new job. Your people skills will really pay off when sweet Venus enters Libra and your 7th House of Relationships on October 28. Graciousness and diplomacy count more than ever then.
