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
We have a strong windstorm in store for October. It won’t only be swirling leaves of color whipped up in a sudden gust, it will be opinions, thoughts, feelings, messages, ideas, and maybe objects that take flight. It will be a month of unexpected developments coming toward us all with rapid force. It’s a month that on some days, it may feel hard to keep up with all the news coming at us. Each sign will have a smorgasbord of events to cope with that were not anticipated, so unexpected developments will keep us all on our toes. Let’s look closer to see what’s coming for you.
The month opens with a full moon on October 1 in Aries, 9 degrees. If you are married or in an established long-term relationship and live together, your mind will be on your romantic partner. If you are self-employed and have a business partner, agent, publicist, accountant, lawyer, or sponsor, or are doing a joint venture with another company, that partner will be on your mind rather than your romantic partner. How things play out depends on how your relationship has been going in the weeks and months leading to this important full moon. If your relationship has not been going well, this full moon will bring hidden feelings and information to the surface. If, in the case of a romantic relationship, things are wonderful and you both love each other, you may get engaged or married. This full moon will clarify your relationship in a very vivid way.
It appears there are a few crosscurrents going on at the same time, and one includes the opposition of Uranus to Mercury, and that aspect might bring an unanticipated expense at the full moon. Uranus tends to have a shock effect, so you may be taken aback by the expense. This sometimes happens in life, and alas, there is no getting around it.
