Dear Virgo, the month of October begins by pulling focus towards your accounts. Take the time to sort things out and get things clear and in order when it comes to your finances, as Mercury will be transiting Libra in your area of resources. But as Libra and the second house are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, you’ll be called to keep your accounts in order while indulging in your desire for beauty. Go all out if you can, or find ways to keep it simple, like adding an inspiring quote or poem to your wall or desk, or getting a cutting from a friend and growing a plant in that empty corner. Allow Mercury to spark your creativity!

On the 8th, Venus is entering your sign, where it will be during the next month, inspiring you to be you. This is an invitation to love and accept yourself just as you are. I promise people will recognize and flatter the heck out of you! Allow yourself to become more playful and flirty. Let that sensual and freaky side that you’re always hiding show.

Pluto is going direct on the 10th, where it will make its last stretch through Capricorn before heading back into Aquarius in January. Please remember that life is too short to play it safe. If you know you want to be more daring in your creative projects, then please stop holding yourself back. When it comes to romance, it’ll be a good time to refresh your non-negotiables, and to connect with the pleasures you wish to pursue.

On the 12th, Mars will enter its home sign of Scorpio, helping us all get deep and serious about the pursuit of our goals. Conflicts may arise within your intimate space or around you, and it wouldn’t be wise to ignore it. Be with what’s going on, be with the process, even when it’s not a particularly pleasant experience. Stop delaying confrontations that are bound to happen sooner or later. Dare to dig deeper.

Eclipse Season is back, as we welcome the New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse in Libra becoming exact at 1:55 pm on the 14th. This Eclipse comes with an encouraging energy, it wants you to recognize your talents, to understand how to best work with your resources, and to ask for a just retribution for your efforts. There is a great opportunity to heal from the feelings of unworthiness left from past or current situations where your talents or your own person weren’t valued and respected or all that it is. Know your worth, surround yourself by those that see and honor it, set boundaries, say no when it’s needed. I know we live in a world where we can’t always afford to do this, so for the moments when you can’t, make sure to cultivate that earthy Virgo magic that knows how to protect and renew its own energy.

We welcome Scorpio Season, with Mercury entering Scorpio on the 22nd, followed by the Sun on the 23rd. Be patient with what is required of you. It may be hard to get a handle on your precious time and energy during this next month. Even if your calendar is too full, make sure to schedule an escape from your regular programming whenever you get the chance. Finding spaces and activities to renew your energy will be very important.

The month of October comes to an end with the second Eclipse of the Season, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, becoming exact at 4:24 pm on the 28th. There’s something about your path that is being revealed. It may be time to rethink how you want to move forward. It may be time to readjust the philosophies that sustain your way of thinking. Flashes of insight are bound to come through. Your perspective will be going through a shift. Things that seemed distant, aren’t anymore, and therefore don’t scare you as much. Worries that have been weighing you down may lift, as you begin to be able to see things in a whole new light.
