October Horoscope 2017 – Overview
Love and relationship are very much the focus for the next few weeks as the emphasis moves to the axis between Libra and Aries and the planet Jupiter prepares to change sign from Libra to deep and introspective Scorpio on October 10/11.
Firstly, Jupiter in Libra makes a third and final opposition to Uranus in Aries on September 28th. This allows you to take action on the integration you have come to regarding just how much of your personal freedom and individuality you are prepared to give up in order to bring harmony to a primary relationship as well as live up to your responsibilities to those you love. It has been a testing year for all kinds of relationships since Jupiter entered Libra in September 2016.
On October 1 the two rulers of Scorpio, Mars and Pluto move ready to work in harmony with each other through an easy flowing trine in preparation for Jupiter’s ingress into the sign.
Relationships come under the spotlight again on October 5/6 with the Aries Full Moon, when the needs of the Libra Sun to keep things nice are opposed by the fiery and impatient Aries Moon. At the same time, rulers Mars and Venus come together in Virgo so there are bound to be fireworks from sudden and passionate attractions. However the path of true love is unlikely to be smooth as neither of the pair are comfortable with Virgo’s self-doubt (and picky nature) and they are moving towards making a square aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius (who will ensure that practical realities are observed).
You may find yourself trying to force any issue, to move past the indecision of trying to keep everyone happy. However, this is unlikely to be fruitful and diplomacy may bring more success after Venus moves into Libra (the sign of her rulership) on October 14.
The Libra New Moon on October 19/20 suggests that politeness and harmony is likely to become more prevalent and issues needing resolution may tend to be swept under the carpet, as Mars prepares to join the party in Libra on October 22/23. Jupiter as a Sky God is a little uncomfortable descending to the depths of Scorpio’s Underworld.
The year ahead (until November 2018) will test your belief and search for meaning in both life and your own inner abilities. Jupiter is associated with expansion and growth but in Scorpio the focus will be more transformational on an inner level, dealing with the shadow side of life, doubts and dirty laundry of all kinds.
October Horoscope 2017 – All 12 Zodiac Signs
The 28th of last month probably found Aries questioning what they are actually prepared to give up in the form of individual expression, in order to remain sane but still keep their relationships alive! The Full Moon on October 6 will re-emphasize this even further, making the requirements crystal clear and fiery rams are likely to stamp their feet and butt their horns in denial!
Later in the month when Venus and Mars change sign to Libra there is more chance of things being resolved more peacefully. After October 11 intimacy is likely to be joined by shared resources to come under the spotlight as Jupiter in Scorpio transits the area of life involving sex, death and investments.

For Taurus the dilemma which needed final resolution was between the responsibilities that being in relationship placed through the workplace with daily life compared to the space needed to reflect on your individual spiritual beliefs and practices. The Aries Moon will bring factors to bear which clarify the importance of that more meditative “me” space in the busy Taurus lifestyle.
The sensual Taurus needs for a secure love life within the family environment will be emphasized by the practical union between Mars and Venus. Jupiter will begin to impact the Taurus relationship life zone as he moves into Scorpio, with the potential for new resourceful transformation deeper under the surface. For some Taureans this may mean a new partner before November 2018, for others a deeper degree of intensity and secrets revealed in existing relationships.
