Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
A full moon will greet you the moment the month begins, October 1, and it will fall in Aries, 9 degrees. That full moon will draw your attention to a friend but also to money, and this full moon is fraught with difficult aspects. Mars will be angry at Pluto and Saturn in your eighth house of other people’s money. You seem to have problems getting money that is due you from someone (not necessarily a friend), and waiting for those funds is giving you high anxiety. This seems nothing new—you may have had this problem before with this person or company. You may be waiting for a commission check, child support, an insurance payment, or a bonus. It could also be that a client or friend owes you money.
At the same time, Mercury will be under siege from Uranus, the planet of unanticipated events, that seems to come out of left field. Mercury is your ruler and won’t be debilitated in retrograde quite yet (although he will be slowing down)—this full moon is October 1 (and Mercury goes retrograde October 13). The fact that Mercury is your ruler tells me this news will rattle you, and it may have something to do with a job or your health.
If you have an optional health procedure this month, put it off to November if possible. Some medical procedures are very necessary, and if yours is, do it. People write all the time to ask, is it okay to have a CAT scan? Of course, it is. Is it okay to get my physical? Of course. These are not major events. If you are having open-heart surgery, it might be urgent, then have it. I asked my doctor if I could put off my urgent eye surgery until November, and she said with great authority, yes. Due to COVID, all the surgeries are being pushed back a little, and although mine is an emergency, she said I can wait, and I will, until the second half of November. Follow your doctor’s advice.
On October 11 you might take a short trip—usually within 200 miles of your home base—because Venus is in your third house of quick travel. A trip to the countryside sounds good, yes?
