Dear Capricorn, the month of October begins by offering you the invitation to trust your own authority. Disrupt what no longer serves. Take a step back, and think about the kind of projects you truly want to be involved in, and the kind of change you wish to make through them. As Mercury, the planet of communication, will be transiting the balance loving sign Libra in the area of your professional life, this will be a great time for negotiations and team-building, as you’ll hold a greater ability to find the balance between your needs and that of others when it comes to your work and your projects.

On the 8th, Venus is entering Virgo, where it will be during the next month, bringing some sweetness into your philosophical journeys. Humble yourself. Become a student of life. Remember that every single thing in life has the ability to teach you something new. Get curious about the people that come into your life just at the right time. Practice trusting the timing of things, and holding space for awe. Wherever your intuition gravitates towards, follow.
