October Horoscopes

by Henry Seltzer

Virgo Virgo Horoscope (August 23 - September 22)
Mutable Earth. Your ruling planet is Mercury.

This month you are choosing between the micro and the macro, Virgo. Normally you specialize in the detailed handling of any particular situation, but the cosmic energy swirling around your brain right now is gently and sometimes suddenly inclining you in quite a different direction. While your ruler Mercury is retrograding through your sector of values and resources, allowing you to perform a double-take at times on what you hold most dear, a big-picture viewpoint on who you are and where you are heading is forming alongside your consciousness. This is unusual for sure, a little destabilizing and confusing too at times and blows the hinges off doors that you can't be completely sure should be opened. It helps to remember to breathe and to reflect that everything that happens to you right now happens for a good reason.

As the month begins, you are taking an idealistic and perhaps almost dreamy look at where in the world you might be heading these days. Your eventual future is on your mind and your basic values as well. Although a large part of your focus is on security issues right now, and their underpinning in finances and your resources in general, with your ruler Mercury retrograding in that same sector of your chart you might be taking a second look at these matters. The mystical truth that underlies all your worldly activity is that your attitude determines your sense of security and that while consensus thinking keeps that attitude tied to finances, it is the attitude that takes priority and not the other way around. Another way of looking at the world around you is fully possible for you if you can keep your head on straight, no easy task. You win when you can trust in the universe to provide you with what you need, no matter what. The First Quarter Moon, taking place on Tuesday, October 7th, is traditionally a time of conflicting cross-currents of emotion when we might have to give up on some part of the impulse from the preceding New Moon as it has played out thus far. For you, this time, there is a sense of optimism that prevails and a tendency to go for the gold, while you might also feel the pull of a grounded sense of practicality that is also present in the configurations of this fall period. This is one peak of the retrograde energy, so you will want to be aware that outcomes might not match intentions. The Full Moon a week later, taking place on Tuesday, October 14th, and the days surrounding it, mark another time of relatively high energy, when the urge for self-transcendence is strong, and when you might also connect more powerfully with intimate others in your life. Mercury changes direction the next day, signifying that this period of time is another important moment in the retrograde cycle and that the factors that affect the area of your finances and resources are shifting. Mercury will not fully clear its zodiacal shadow until almost the very end of the month. The last few days of October, following the Scorpio New Moon of the 28th, represent another time of heightened optimism when an "anything goes" attitude may prevail, although a time when the forces of practical common sense have sway as well, leading up to an interesting and somewhat intense fall period for you.
