We have no shortage of cosmic drama this month to help usher our lives into significant new directions. It all begins with Mercury turning direct on October 2. Communication matters should finally begin to settle down, but that's the least of the celestial happenings to speak of! A Full Moon on October 9 in independent Aries will call our attention to where our individual needs are not getting met, particularly in relationships, and what needs to happen in order to rectify any lack.\r\nThe star of the month is an incredibly auspicious Solar Eclipse, occurring on October 25 in potent Scorpio. This eclipse is lined up beautifully next to Venus and suggests a significant new beginning in areas connected to money -- but also erotic fulfillment. In addition, we can free ourselves from any psychological hang-ups that are preventing us from progressing in romantic or financial matters. The universe is encouraging us to trust each other! \r\nLucky Jupiter re-enters gentle Pisces on October 28 and remains in this sign until December 20. We could enjoy another round of spiritual blessings that fill our hearts with gratitude and a healthy big-picture perspective. Last, but certainly not least, Mars turns retrograde in Gemini on October 30. Until January 12, Mars will be out of phase, forcing us to swallow a cosmic chill pill and quietly assess our plans, goals, and actions.
