It's Written in the Stars
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
September is over, and October's bright blue skies have never looked better. Mercury is no longer in retrograde; Uranus, Saturn, Mercury, the Sun, and the moon are no longer fighting with one another; and at long last, your optimism is returning full fold. Most people found September a very difficult month, but because Pisces and Virgo were the signs in the center of the storm, perhaps you were on the sidelines helping others. Even so, that doesn't mean it was too much easier - it looks like you felt quite a bit of the tension
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
As October begins, treat yourself to a little rest. September was a difficult month for many. Even if you found that your love life and friendships remained on an even keel - the area the planets were focusing on in your chart - the people you know may have had serious personal difficulties, and because you are a caring person, you may feel wrung out, too. October will be so much better than September, on so many levels. With Mars still in Cancer, you may get a chance to take a drive into the country to enjoy a change of scene. In northern latitudes, it's fall foliage and apple picking time, so take a little time away from routine and indulge in a few pleasures of the season.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Over the past two years, you've had taskmaster Saturn square your Gemini and now you will have Saturn trine your Sun. You may be humming, "You say toMAYto, and I say toMAHto - let's call the whole thing off!" You are so cute, Gemini. You have no idea what I am talking about, so let me explain. When you had a big Saturn square your Sun, that was tough because Saturn was hitting your Sun at a sharp angle, one known to create obstacles. Soon you will have Saturn TRINE your Sun, and that's completely different - and quite excellent - because Saturn will be hitting your Sun at a benefic, strengthening 120-degree angle. That's a really sweet change! The word "trine" comes from the word "triangle" - the most heavenly aspect possible. This means that instead of testing you (as he has over the past two years), Saturn will start helping you. Indeed, as far as your sign is concerned, Saturn will have a total personality makeover and will suddenly start helping you for a change, not challenge you so much!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
There is a lot going on in October, for the scene is shifting and parts of your life that have been stagnant will jump to life. Areas you have not prioritized as Number One will become increasingly important too, so you may be juggling a lot in weeks ahead. Everyone of every sign will be feeling the ground move as planets play musical chairs, but you may notice it more, especially in October, because so much energy will be focused on the key angles of your chart. You may be saying, "Bring it on! I've been forced to wait out too many situations! I am ready to get going!" Now, that's the attitude to have!
Leo (July 23- August 22)
What a relief. September is over, a very difficult month that may have given you a few scary moments in various parts of your life, and may have included a major financial consideration. No matter what happened - or didn't happen - last month, October will be a vast improvement. You deserve an easier life, dear Leo, and happily, it is on the way. You will see some major shifts in October, and all of them will bring events in the right direction.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Last month was not easy, but you've come through it, and October is looking very bright. Saturn in Virgo was to blame for many of the challenges that confronted you last month. Saturn first entered Virgo in September 2007 and has remained there ever since. While you didn't feel Saturn's testing aspects the whole two years, when you did feel them, life may have turned inside out for you. Think back to late 2007, all of 2008, and all the months of 2009 leading to this one. At some point, you faced a difficult situation, but you stepped up to the plate, met your dragons, and moved forward. You did well, dear Virgo, and the universe noticed your strength and grace under pressure.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
This will be a very active important month where you can make more impressive progress than you have all summer. If you could see the pattern of planets, many of them are clustered at the key "angles" of the chart - that is, the north, south, east, and west points on the wheel. Because most of the planets this month will be in cardinal signs like yours, you'll be eager to get going on a key project. If you have a goal, that's great, but if you don't, these planets will make you unrelentingly restless. You have a bright, clear road ahead at long last, so it would be the perfect month to commit to a goal that you'd like to accomplish before 2009 comes to an end. In a month like this, you'll be downright unstoppable.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
This is the month your life will begin to turn a corner and bring you much closer to life as you want it, both personally and professionally. When you begin to see things change for the better, no one will be more surprised than you. For too long, you've had quite a no-frills life, and you've not seen much evidence that this would ever change. Furthermore, you need evidence that you've been making the right moves and showing good judgment, and that will show up soon now, too. This month will be chock-full of news, and as tense as September proved to be (and it was that, for sure), October will be just the opposite - joyful, lively, and full of fast-moving events.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
What a difference a month makes! September could not have been more stressful for you, particularly if you were born in mid-to-late December, but you pulled through and you met a challenge head-on. Now October dawns and brings good news on many fronts. Just when you thought it was unlikely that anything new and exciting would happen in October, the universe comes bearing gifts. This is the magic and wonder of life and the reason you must keep striving, because sooner or later it pays off.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
This is a key month when so much of what you have worked toward will be rewarded. For decades, Saturn has been inching toward your mid-heaven, which is located at the very top of your chart, and will reach this pinnacle point on October 29. The fact that this part of your chart is lighting up brilliantly is attractive to you, for the tenth house is naturally associated with Capricorn. You are an ambitious soul, and you are wise in knowing that your reputation is the one part of you that is most precious. No one can ever take your reputation away from you - you built it and it is forever yours. That makes your reputation your most precious quality, and you seem to be very aware of that. With Venus circulating in this house in the second half of October, the buzz about you will be very, very positive among VIPs.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Last month brought some very tense moments in regard to finances, but now it is October and you'll find yourself in far better territory. The reason you have had such a hard time controlling your money lately is that you had innocently flown your little airplane into the airspace of a major dispute going on between Uranus and Saturn that has been raging as far back as November 4, 2008. In your solar chart, Uranus (unexpected happenings) was found in your second house of earned income, opposed to Saturn (a constrictive influence that limits and reduces whatever it touches) in your house of credit, loans, and "other people's money." Let's not forget that Uranus is your ruling planet too, giving Uranus more weight in your chart. Having your ruler being beat over the head by Saturn is not easy.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You have just come though a very challenging month, and October will offer soothing relief. September's storms were very intense for some, particularly for those Pisces born late in the sign, from, say, March 12 to 20, for you felt September's stresses and strains most. No matter, the good news is that this month, on October 29, Saturn will move out of Virgo, a very difficult place for you to host this taskmaster planet. You have struggled with this aspect since September 2007. Indeed, Saturn opposition the Sun is the single hardest aspect possible, and you have coped directly with this at some point over the past two years.
