Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
During the full moon period (October 1-5), you might want to look at your credit card statements a little closer than usual because there might be an unauthorized charge, or there could be frustrating errors on your credit report. With Mars square Pluto and Saturn (a very harsh aspect), any errors you might find will take time to fix. If you are in a partnership, I hesitate to say this, but one of your employees may be draining money out of your business for himself. As you can see, there is a lot of emphasis on money.
Venus will be observing all this commotion, and as the planet of beauty, harmony, and love, she will find the ruckus that Mars is causing in early October troubling. Venus will reach out to Mars from across the skies in a beautiful, affirming trine position (the best aspect possible) to remind Mars of their love. By doing this, she will effectively set up a link between Mars in your earned income house and where she is positioned, your house of work projects and assignments. If someone owes you money, Venus will urge you to be calm, polite, and charming to resolve the matter.
Now let’s turn to another event—Mercury, which is Mars’ little copycat brother, will go retrograde too, from October 13 to November 3. As you see, this month will emphasize the need to look back, not forward. Mercury will retrograde in your other financial house, your eighth house of other people’s money. This would be the worst month possible to try to reach a settlement of the division of property in a divorce or at the end of a business. You need to get away from these frustrating aspects to get any kind of deal that will please you. If you are trying to negotiate any kind of deal, say, with a labor leader, put it off until mid-November.
