This is another time of productive uncertainty for you, Taurus, when what you don’t know becomes as important to you as what you do, and when the best policy is to carefully weigh the evidence rather than making any hard and fast decisions whatsoever. You are feeling quite strongly your mission of service to the surrounding collective, and with the assistance of important partners also. Partners are there for you, but may also bring surprises. You are very idealistic now and might need to be careful not to let that get out of hand. In seeing this though, the good news is that you have tons of intuition ready and able to come to your aid, although with Trickster Uranus powerfully present in your identity sector, there is as well the uncertainty of unexpected curve balls that might throw you off center. One minute it might feel as though the rug had been pulled out from under you altogether, which is uncomfortable, and the next you could be flying high on a magic carpet ride to a brand-new destiny.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
The beginning of October brings up your partnerships and the logistical aspects of your collaborations. You may have to tap into your Venusian charms to get what you want and your ability to progress may be directly linked to how well you get along this month. Mercury Retrograde in Libra may bring delays or you may find that you are not as fast or as efficient as you would like. Be mindful of the pressure you are putting on yourself as you could be particularly sensitive to stress at the beginning of October. Asking for help or delegating some of your responsibilities could go a long way in relieving some of the tension. Venus in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn could bring creative insights via someone close to you. Don’t shy away from sharing your ideas and concerns with a partner or with someone who cares about you.
The New Moon in Libra on the 6th brings fresh energy for your routine, your health, and your habits. It may be a favorable time to assess your energy level and make adjustments. If you’ve been working too hard it may be time to slow down but, if on the other hand you’ve been overindulging, this New Moon is your cue to get back on track. Chiron in Aries opposes the Sun, Moon, and Mars in Libra, making any healing modalities especially relevant at this time. The New Moon also aspects Uranus by a close inconjunct (or quincunx) aspect, so that there could be surprising events around this time. Your intuition is also quite strong. Bottled-up anger or resentment may be particularly obvious right now which may allow you to release or at least become aware of these deeper facets of your unconscious where you hold tension.
Venus enters Sagittarius on the 7th highlighting shared assets and more extensively your intimate partnerships for the next month. The give and take of your relationships may be more obvious which may help you recalibrate what you share with others.
On October 9th, Mercury joins the Sun for its inferior conjunction often linked to a moment of clarity when a question finally gets answered. You may get new information that allows you to let go of a fear or a worry especially as Venus is conjunct the South Node in Sagittarius on the same day. Saturn stations direct in Aquarius on the following day and things that may have felt on hold since the end of May could finally start to regain momentum in the following weeks.
Your work in the world and the way you manage your time is highlighted mid-month and you may have an easier time reconciling your personal needs with your responsibilities as the Sun in Libra comes into a supportive trine with Jupiter, exact on the 15th. Career and aspirations may be high on your priority list but you may have to pay special attention to the way you spend your time in order to get through your workload. The Sun in Libra squaring Pluto in Capricorn from the 15th to the 17th could bring up unforeseen stressors and you may notice your body being more susceptible to tension. On October 18th, Jupiter stations direct in Aquarius with Mars in trine, and Mercury follows suit a few hours later in the sign of Libra, ending the major phase of the retrograde period. These two planets moving direct should help you regain the enthusiasm you need to get you through your workload in the following weeks, and might bring optimism to your relationships as well.
The ‘’pièce de résistance’’ for you this month may very well be the Full Moon in Aries saturating the skies on the night of the 20th. The Full Moon shines brightly in the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious process. There could be opportunities to come to terms with long-buried tension related to self-assertion, independence, and success. Your determination and your will power may be more visible under these skies and you may be able to extract valuable insights from your meditations. Mars in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius and squares Pluto in Capricorn may bring the energy needed to back up your ambitions but you may have to acknowledge the deeper elements that fuel your desire to succeed.
On the late night of October 22nd, the Sun ingresses into the sign of Scorpio where it sits exactly opposite to your sign. This time period could be characterized by your partnerships and you may be more aware of your need for others in the following weeks. Social interactions should feel relatively smoother on the other side of the Full Moon but there may be a few caveats to watch for. The last week of October brings some interesting aspects between Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune that could bring confusion or idealization in connection with your partnerships. You may feel like relying on someone who is not entirely available or it may be that an intimate partnership needs to be clarified. There is an important give and take dynamic happening this month between you and your close collaborators. You may be trying to do your own thing and delineate your boundaries while also relying on other people for support. There may be a delicate balance needed between compromising too much and not enough and you may have to tune in to your deeper intuitions to know exactly what you need to feel grounded physically and emotionally this month.
