October 2011 Sagittarius Horoscope

Piercing the veil

Throughout this month, the window that's now opening into spiritual dimensions will widen. The first sign of your connection with metaphysics is Venus' entry into passionate Scorpio and your 12th House of Divinity on Oct. 9. Exploring the secrets of the human spirit and your place in the universe can be healing, but it's best to avoid people who seek power in suspicious ways. The restless Aries Full Moon on Oct. 11 operates on a more personal level in your 5th House of Love and Play, where it fires up your desire for action. Impulsive behavior, though, could run you into walls of resistance with unyielding Saturn opposing the Full Moon. 

The Sun enters penetrating Scorpio on Oct. 23, plunging you into the depths of your 12th house. This begins a month of soul searching marked by a desire to get away from it all and have more private time for yourself. On Oct. 26, the intense Scorpio New Moon may feel like an initiation or a spiral down a tunnel that takes you away from everything you know. The power to change your life is underscored with Jupiter's trine to formidable Pluto on Oct. 28. 

Keep in Mind this Month

You are totally safe when a compassionate desire to serve humanity, rather than power, is your primary motivating force. 

Key Dates for Sagittarius

Oct 14: Sweet surrender

The air is steamy with desire when sultry Venus in Scorpio opposes Jupiter in sensual Taurus. You may be lusting for love and have to keep it hidden with Venus in your secretive 12th House. Yet these strong feelings can also reflect a deep spiritual connection and the profound satisfaction that comes from helping others anonymously.

SUPER NOVA DAYS

Oct 26 - 28: Dark side of the moon

Maintaining confidentiality is a must on Oct. 26 when the subtle Scorpio New Moon in your 12th House of Privacy opposes unrestrained Jupiter. You're tempted to broadcast personal matters -- which is fine if the secrets are about you. Intimacy grows when you can make selective disclosures to those with a real need to know. Piercing Pluto's sextile to the New Moon may provide the perception needed for you to regain self-control if you go too far. The long-lasting trine of Jupiter and Pluto on Oct. 28 brings you back from the edge of an abyss so you can inspire others with the tale of your spiritual journey.
