October 2013 Horoscope
The Pluto-Uranus Square, which continues through March 2015, is tight again this month. Tension between established structure and the need for change permeates our lives, and we must deal with this energy. We are called to put out fires in our personal environment during this warlike time. Coups and overthrows are a natural energy, unpleasant but progressive. Claim your personal revolt and know that it will feel much better later. For personal services, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
For a creature of balance, you are off kilter. Others who are usually predictable are no longer so. Waste no time analyzing them; rather, focus on your reactions. When you are true to yourself, situations become manageable. Be selfish. When you state what you require, alliances follow naturally. Others’ opinions do not matter.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
To garner support, leave your comfy nest and roam the marketplace. Prove your loyalty to others by grandstanding and showing enthusiasm. A mesmerizing presentation draws those who have knowledge that will support your growth. Cultivate a delivery that hooks your audience.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
In this cycle of gestation, you need time and space to ponder a genesis. A slow reboot prevents hasty mistakes. You will have all the data in a few more weeks. Master teachers have much to give in short bursts of time. Honest listening rewards with unexpected solutions. This month, be present.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
That “king of the hill” feeling can be shaky when you can hear the rumble of the opposition approaching. Consider the concept of ballast. Sometimes in sailing, lightening the load in anticipation of strong wind is the only choice. Patience and calculation support future rewards. Discipline pays off — soon.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You ponder changes to enrich your health — especially psychologically, as you realize old habits of emotional reaction no longer serve your growth. Sensitivity to emotional need encourages changes that strengthen the inner core. Drop a slavish devotion to another; it diminishes your power. Allow no distractions from your path.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You can be the center of a positive new movement. Share an elevated consciousness with interested others, and you learn on an accelerated level. It’s time for a new truth that sets you free and becomes international in scope. Professional contacts from varied cultures contribute a level of confidence that propels you.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You begin a few weeks of gestational energies that may frustrate. The balance in life includes downtimes, dropouts, and hideaways. Hide in plain sight by invoking “scheduling conflicts.” Your Achilles’ heel is the war cry, “When in doubt, do something.” According to The Tao of Survival, choices are fight, flight, flap, or freeze. Go the way that serves you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
To approach life with heart, your pump must be healthy. A broken heart decimates spirit. Other stresses leave you with little joy for life’s experiences. Examine where you feel disheartened and analyze where the love went south. Be loyal to your own vision and revitalize your involvement with a simple (but not easy) change of heart.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You restlessly reach for a different experience before you complete the present one. A short trip with a change of scenery can spark new ideas and refresh your attitude. You will probably accomplish much in winter, but your focus now is scattered. Now is the time for data collection. Lecture now, lab later.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
There is more satisfaction in giving to others than indulging yourself. A selfless investment of talent brings rewards. Interaction with like-minded others opens a route to personal achievement. An improvement in a real estate situation contributes to your well-being. Embrace the power of home. Visualize a goal for focus and energy.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Make time for moments of reflection. Home can be a power spot, if you use it to rest and center. An overhaul of a domestic or community issue brings satisfaction and a positive outlook on the immediate future. A peer group forms around an interest and invigorates you. Short trips stimulate ideas and renew friendships.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Spiritual inroads have prepared you to accept challenge and reward. Join a consciousness-raising group or class and immerse yourself in renewed thought. Widening your peer group helps you answer unasked questions. A new friend is a study partner in pursuit of improvement. Meetings are lucky; show up ready to receive.
