Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Your October Horoscope by Susan Miller
Libra Forecast for October 2009
By Susan Miller
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.
September proved to be one of the hardest of the year for many people. A mob of angry planets acted more like thugs than dignified statesmen, and on top of that, Mercury was retrograde. This planetary picture kept you in limbo and also possibly on edge. Mercury is now moving in direct speed, and Uranus and Saturn have backed off their aggressive positions and will no longer torment the new moon, Sun, and Mercury with their dispute. At last, October dawns with an undeniable feeling of rest and relief.
Mars will still orbit over the very highest point of your chart as the month opens, and like a brilliant beacon at the very top of your chart will light your tenth house of career reputation and advancement until October 15. To boost your career, you couldn't wish for a more beautifully placed Mars. You will easily garner the attention of influential people. Those VIPs will go out of their way to help you, so don't hesitate to enlist their support.
If you are looking for a new job, or hope to get more responsibility where you are now, you need to assertively search for your ideal position. Get busy the minute the month opens. Last month was not the time to make your big career initiative, but now conditions have changed and the universe is saying, "Get ready to act."
If you work in a creative field, or need to think up new and innovative ideas in any job, say, for your position in sales, marketing, or PR, you are in luck. Jupiter, the good fortune planet, has been retrograde since mid-June and will go direct on October 13. From then on, you will find coming up with profitable ideas to be much easier to do and also easier to get approved. Truly, it's a glorious time to be a Libra!
This same turn of Jupiter to direct speed on October 13 will be a boon for romance. Jupiter is now in your fifth house of true love, so if you are single and hoping to meet someone new and exiting - someone with long-term potential - then be sure to begin to mix just after October 13.
You will have until January 17, 2010, to have your fateful meeting. While of course you will have many lucky days after Jupiter leaves Aquarius, you won't have Jupiter in such a perfect position to help you quickly, easily, and noticeably! Make an effort to meet people this month! Jupiter will move to a new area of your chart, but while you have such a darling chart for love and fun, you must promise to circulate to the hilt! Of course, the benefits to single Libra will be obvious - but, attached and married Libra will have more fun, too. This is a light, breezy, fun, and yet expansive influence and one meant to make you happy, dear Libra!
Two other planets will work with Jupiter to make sure you do well socially. First, Venus, your ruling planet, will move into Libra on October 14 and favor your sign until November 7. Meanwhile, on October 16, Mars will move into the ultra-social sign of Leo, a sign that blends beautifully with yours, and begin a long, nearly eight-month tour of your eleventh house of hopes, wishes, fun, friends, and events. Wow, dear Libra, are you excited yet? This is fantastic!
There are several days that may stand out for you when it comes to romance. Keep in mind that if you are married or attached, you are also part of this trend - you won't be left out! Also, the same aspects that encourage love also encourage pregnancy and birth, so if you hope for a baby, these aspects are just what you need to summon the stork.
First, pay close attention to October 10-11, when Jupiter and the Sun will have a friendly meeting on your behalf and draw up a plan to get a fun and possibly even luxurious episode for you. October 15 should be special too, when the Sun and Neptune will reach out to one another to spin a romantic dream of an evening. Single or married, this is a night of inspiration and joy.
An even more outstanding day will arrive on October 28 when Venus in Libra will reach out to Jupiter in Aquarius. This is a wow of a day in anyone's book. Try to be out socializing on this day. If you met someone on a dating site whom you'd like to meet for coffee in real life, choose October 28.
This day - October 28 - will be so glorious for you. Circle it for other purposes, too. You will be the apple of Venus' eye, so use this day to your ultimate benefit - for a first date, to reconnect with an old love, to fan the fires of existing love, but also to schedule a job interview, to send a query letter, to present a big idea, to make a big sale, or negotiate something in your favor - you name it!
The Harvest full moon in Aries on October 4, plus or minus four days, could bring news of an engagement or news from your significant other about something really important to you both. This full moon will be in perfect angle to Jupiter, encouraging love on the highest level. This full moon, October 4, can be used for merging energies with another in a business sense. This might be another individual or a whole entity, such as another company if you are self-employed and doing a joint venture or joint promotion together. You might hire an agent, a broker, or an expert on this full moon. If so, things will crystallize nicely and the two of you will reach accord.
This same full moon may bring happy news about a creative project that was just finished. It is also possible, alternatively, that a major project will be approved at this time, after weeks or even months of anticipation.
If you are an actor, audition within four days of October 4 - you will get a quick response, and with such upbeat aspects, you could get the role. Good luck!
The closer your birthday falls to October 4 (within five days), the more likely you will feel the energy of this full moon, and the good news it will bring. With a full moon falling near your birthday, much of what you worked so hard for over many years will come to fruition.
The new moon of October 18 will be in Libra and will represent your birthday gift from a loving universe. Use this new moon period to launch something dear to you. In the ten days that follow this new moon, watch for opportunities to arise that are new and exciting, ones you had never anticipated being offered. With the new moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Libra, you will be at the head of the class, in control. This is what everyone wants, but rarely get! The planets will be beautifully positioned now and what is more, Jupiter and Neptune will support those planets, as will Mars. My goodness, you have it made, dear Libra.
Your biggest moment of the month will be when Saturn enters Libra for the first time since 1980. Saturn is the planet that teaches us that the things in life that are most enduring and that make us proudest and happiest are those we had to work hardest to achieve. Saturn also teaches the value of being patient, reliable, and consistent. While endeavors that we undertake under a Saturn cycle always take 2-3 years to achieve, the benefits we gain will last for decade or much more - possibly forever.
