Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Be deliberate in all your actions when Mercury is retrograde, and if you can delay signing a contract, do. If you are afraid you will lose the offer if you delay signing, you may have to sign, but realize that doing so usually means conditions will later change and that things will not work out as expected. Refrain from buying electronic equipment too, and that includes buying a car, for Mercury rules all the moving parts of machines as well as the workings of electronic chips. Mercury will go direct on October 18, so leave about two days after this date before resuming normal activities again.
Venus’ impending move into Sagittarius from October 7 until November 5 is a good place for Venus to be for you. Venus will be in your eleventh house of friends, fun, and social groups, so life is likely to lighten up. You will be popular now, and friends who you’ve not seen in a while will want to get together and catch up. You will be scheduling impromptu lunches and dinners and maybe an occasional museum visit or shopping expedition together. Being more social will bring back balance to your life.
At the new moon in Libra, October 6, Venus (Libra’s ruler) will take center stage to see how things will work out eventually. Happily, Venus will be in close, friendly talks with Pluto, a financial powerhouse planet that also rules your career sector, the tenth house of prestigious achievement and fame. You have so much good happening for you in the days and weeks that follow this new moon!
All Aquarians will do well with the October 6 new moon. If your birthday falls on February 1, you will get a double dip of luck. The same is true if your natal moon is in Aquarius or you have Aquarius rising at 13 degrees, plus or minus five degrees. Look to see if you have a natal planet in Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius at 13 degrees (plus or minus five degrees). If you do, that planet will go the distance to make sure you do well. Write down on your calendar what occurs so you remember that moment.
