Virgo Horoscope: October 2014
Balance the books
With your ruling planet, Mercury, retrograde from October 4-25, you might feel as if you're second-guessing many of your decisions for most of the month. While it's true this won't be an ideal time to launch any new communications-related projects, sign contracts or purchase an electronic device, at the same time Mercury Retrograde is always a valuable cycle for you, despite its occasional frustrations.
This time around, Mercury Retrograde will help you decipher what needs revision in terms of your financial plans. Adding to this is a potent Lunar Eclipse affecting your financial axis on October 8. Money matters will be impossible to ignore. How sound is your budget? Do you have a solid understanding of how much money is coming in and where it's going each month? This will be a great time to take stock of expenses, income, and to evaluate any money-making ideas you have swirling inside your head. Put them into action after October 25.
In other news, from October 26 until December 4, Mars will move into your 5th House of Creativity and Romance for the first time in two years. This is a brilliant transit that often coincides with more fun, romance and an enhanced libido. For a sign who always works so hard, making time for the lighter side of life will be a welcome change. You deserve it!
