There is a tumultuous but successful month ahead. Many changes are happening both in your personal life and in the world at large. Two eclipses this month practically ensure this.
The Lunar Eclipse of October 8 occurs in your own sign and affects Uranus and Pluto. It is a strong one. Make sure you take it nice and easy during this period. The Cosmos will show you, in language you understand, when the eclipse period is beginning, and you can lay low during that period. This eclipse occurs in your 1st house so it brings a redefinition of your personality and concept of yourself. You will upgrade them. You will start (and this is a six-month process) to present a new image to the world. Generally this brings wardrobe changes, changes of hair style, a new look.
If you haven’t been careful in dietary matters it can bring a detox of the body. You need to take it easy until the 23rd anyway, but especially during the eclipse period. This eclipse will test friendships and will bring life-changing kinds of dramas to the lives of friends. There will be shake-ups and upheavals in professional organizations that you are involved with. There can be encounters with death (most likely on the psychological level) as well. There can be dramas in the family and in the home. Be more patient with family members at this time.
The Solar Eclipse of October 23 occurs right on the cusp of your 8th house of transformation. Again this can indicate encounters with death (although not necessarily literal, physical death). Children (and children figures in your life) should be kept out of harm’s way. They don’t need to be involved in risky kinds of activities.
Speculations are also best avoided during this period. Friends will have their marriages tested, and your spouse, partner or current love could have a financial crisis that requires dramatic financial changes.
Eclipses are not punishments. They are merely the Cosmos’s way of clearing obstructions and blockages. The changes that happen tend to be good in the long term, but while they happen they can be uncomfortable.
The career focus should be continued. On the 26th Mars will cross your Mid-heaven and enter your 10th house. This is an important transit that indicates career success. You are on top – above everyone in your world – calling the shots. You are respected and honoured and your achievements are appreciated. You are working hard, but you are succeeding.
Mars is ‘out of bounds’ all month. This shows that you are moving outside your normal circles. You are exploring new ventures and new methods. This seems to help the career.
Health still needs watching until the 23rd. Review our discussion of it last month. It will be good to spend more time at the health spa or to schedule some regular massages.
