and Next Month's Horoscope for October
Keeping your eye pinned firmly on your finances will be your priority in a fast-moving month where your plans and budget will have to keep pace with constantly changing circumstances. There'll be times where you feel lucky, other times you'll be inclined to spend to impress and yet other where you know that caution and austerity make more sense.

But you will need to play your cards close to your chest and stay persevering. You won't be entirely free to make all the decisions you'd like and will have to take the wishes of partners or others into account. Reaching fairer agreements will require a firm but flexible approach since you will have to compromise. Luckily charming Venus in your own sign from early till late month will make it easier to sweet talk companions into giving way. A busy schedule in the final week will oddly enough free you up as restrictions lift and you're on your way.
