OCTOBER 2016

A challenging month lies ahead with the Libra Sun in hard aspect to Pluto and Uranus, followed later by Mars in Capricorn picking up the same two outer planets. There will be some high points with a confidence surge on the 5th, but there’ll also be blockages and tensions up to the 7th, with sudden changes of circumstances and surprises mid month as Uranus kicks in.

Mercury in tactful Libra will do its best to smooth round rough edges and bring positive thinking to bear on tricky dilemmas. But even it falls foul of argumentative Mars, intense Pluto and outspoken Uranus between the 13th and 20th.

Venus in Scorpio will be playing its cards close to its chest as usual up to the 18th, hiding deep feelings behind a charming smile. But it will manipulate and seduce to get its own way. Thereafter in adventurous Sagittarius, it’ll be more outgoing and friendly.

The Mars Pluto conjunction on the 19th, will have a run up of frustrations, power struggles, irritation and a sense of being trapped. It’ll call for perseverance and courage and stolid determination. That is followed 10 days later by Mars squaring Uranus, which will be all of a package with Mars Pluto – so there will be accidents, confrontations, disruptions. At a personal level it will be short-tempered, though out in the world, it’s likely to bring more serious disasters than usual, man-made or otherwise.

The Sun moves into Scorpio on the 22nd for four weeks, which will be emotional, secretive, good for plotting and planning, doing research and finding solutions through sheer persistence.
