Much of the month is spent with Aries' dynamic ruling planet, Mars, in adventurous Sagittarius and your 9th House of High Ideals and Faraway Places. It's tempting to run away from your obligations, or to become sloppy with details as your energetic spirit bubbles with restlessness and dreams of a better tomorrow. Yet paying more attention to conversations with colleagues, customers and potential employees could be critical with communicative Mercury Retrograde from October 4-25.

This Mercury Retrograde period occurs in your houses of partnership, complicating professional relationships -- unless you make sure to double-check every detail. In principle, this should be a favorable period for repairing damaged alliances.
However, your willingness to compromise could be lacking around the volatile Full Moon in Aries on October 8. That's because rebellious Uranus is conjunct the Moon in your impulsive and independent sign. Acting carelessly is a risk then, especially if you're not in the mood to listen to others. Still, even this explosive event -- one that can suddenly turn your professional life in a radically different direction -- has its benefits, because it can lead you to a breakthrough in awareness. Lightning flashes of insight could stimulate you to apply your talents in surprising ways.
A cautious approach is recommended starting on October 23, when the Sun and Venus enter scrutinizing Scorpio and your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Yet another big shift comes with Mars' entry into Capricorn and your 10th House of Career on October 26. This will provide weeks of motivation and committed effort to advance your work-related ambitions patiently.
