A Note from Susan Miller
October is due to be a unique month that will not be easy for any of us. The planets will be in a frenzy, the likes of which I have rarely seen. If you feel you’ve seen enough surprises this year, I am sorry to report that there will be a slew of them in October. Warrior Mars is one of the prime instigators, but surprise-a-minute Uranus will play a leading part, too. Saturn, Pluto, and Mercury will stir the pot as well and add to the turmoil.
When the planets get this way, it is because they want to shake up the status quo and force us to confront languishing situations that many of us would prefer not to address. As you see, there is method in the planets’ madness. One thing you can rely on is that when planets are in harsh angle to each other, the universe brings enormous energy so that you can deal with what happens. Sweet aspects—trines and positive, happy conjunctions—are always prized, but they make us a little lazy. Squares and oppositions are the hard aspects, but they sure do bring high energy. The universe will always give you the tools you need when it brings you a challenge.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
This will be a wild and wooly month, filled with unexpected twists and turns. Everyone, of every sign, will feel the turbulent energy, and it will be reflected in society, too. You’ll see these rowdy planets play out their energies in the news, on TV, on the Internet, and in your own life. Every year journalists on TV always talk about an October surprise, but this month, there won’t be just one surprise but an entire slew of surprises coming, one right after the other.
Just when you have nailed down one manhole cover, another one will pop up behind you. As a Leo, you are a fixed sign, so you like things to stay as is, calm and quiet, but that’s not possible with these aspects. It will be the cardinal signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn (or those with a cardinal sign rising or many planets in cardinal signs) who will feel this month’s energy the most. Let me show you what I see, and I will get you ready.
This month has two full moons, and the first one will arrive immediately on October 1 in fellow fire-sign Aries, 9 degrees. This full moon will bring a matter covered by the ninth house to fullness. You may be working on a project with an executive abroad or a foreign person in your company’s home base. Alternatively, you might be working on a media project as the reporter or producer, or you may be the subject of a story (broadcasting, publishing, or Internet). If the latter is how things work out, you may feel the story takes a turn you never expected and therefore will feel the need to set the record straight.
Another way this full moon might affect you is that you may take an important exam in college, you might have an immigration interview to decide your citizenship, or you may put together the pieces for a major legal case that you will bring to the courts, as soon as the courts are operating on a normal schedule.
