If you're in the middle of launching an important new career endeavor that requires venture capital, you may need to exercise patience this month as you wait for funds to arrive. Last month you had a gorgeous boost to help you get a new business or professional opportunity off the ground, thanks to Mars entering your 10th House of Status and Honors for the first time in two years.
This month, you'll still have the help of Mars, but Mercury Retrograde is in effect from October 4-25. Because Mercury Retrograde occurs mostly in the area of your chart ruling joint finances and money you receive from banks or private investors, you might feel as if you've taken one giant leap forward ... only to be pulled two steps back.
Take heart -- if there is a delay, you still have every indication that the funds will arrive. Just breathe! In the meantime, it could be a frustrating month financially, because you'll need to figure out how to pay for certain expenses in the interim. News on October 8 and again on October 11 may be particularly aggravating in terms of finances.
So, what's a Pisces to do? Be prepared and formulate a plan. This will be a good month to cut out all unnecessary expenses and try to collect that money your friend borrowed from you ages ago. If all else fails, put unwanted items up for sale on eBay or have a garage sale. Be proactive and know that your finances will finally regulate by next month.
