You'll begin the month with plenty of grit, although initially it may reveal itself in fragmented, frustrated ways. A potent Lunar Eclipse in your sign on October 8 suggests a significant turning point -- an ending that you are the master of initiating. You're always one to blaze new trails with remarkable courage, and this month will be no different. Often, the only way to make room for new terrain is to let go of whatever is weighing you down from progress. Now, you'll be clear on the fact that it's time to release this particular situation once and for all.
Mercury Retrograde is in effect all month, however, so while you may want to act, your decisions and intentions might come across as skewed to those around you. Be mindful of how your actions affect others, especially from October 10-25, when Mercury is backpedaling in your relationship sector. This will be a good time to reevaluate a personal or business relationship.
Set a new investment or retirement plan in motion after October 25. A supportive Solar Eclipse on October 23 suggests decisions made in this area of your life will be quite favorable, but you'll want to wait a few more days until Mercury Direct before you sign anything or finalize decisions.
When it comes to career, by the end of the month you'll be a powerhouse! Your ruler, Mars, will enter the area of your chart connected to profession and honors. This occurrence, which happens only once every two years, typically collides with a fantastic push in your career. Start a new business, reach for a promotion, or assert yourself to a VIP. You can't be ignored now. Success is yours.
