Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
As you begin October, you will need to hit the ground running. Assignments will flow onto your desk in rapid succession, and you’ll have to be ready to roll up your sleeves and dig in. Remarkably, Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will be back in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement (after a brief exit from May 13 until July 28) and will send shimmering rays to your sixth house of work projects, where the Sun and new moon will appear on October 6.
Jupiter has been in retrograde for months, so you may have been frustrated with the lack of growth in your career, despite working hard and smart. This situation was brought on by a weakened Jupiter that began June 20. Happily, Jupiter will turn direct this month on October 17. This is good news, for you will start to see professional progress after Jupiter starts moving forward.
That new moon in Libra on October 6 will offer you fresh work opportunities almost immediately. Mercury (ruling news) and his big brother Mars (energy) will also be orbiting close to the Sun and new moon. These celestial bodies will draw your attention to your to-do list. It will be fun to work on something new and different. If you give all your energy and attention to these projects in October, you will be able to elevate your reputation and career status. Voice your ideas without hesitation.
Mercury will be retrograde in your work-a-day sector during a large portion of October, a trend that started September 26 and will end October 18. This could mean a project you wanted to work on earlier that had to be put aside might now jump to life this month. With Mercury retrograde, don’t rush or become distracted. You need to hover over details more deliberately than ever.
