Astrology Forecast for October 2010

FOR EVERYONE ~ Progress, sort of. In October, some very important things will move ahead while others will remain stalled. So, while some progress is possible, an abundance of unknowns will make it hard to set directions or finalize plans. Discussion and sharing is supported, but with so many people uncertain of so many things, discussions will only get you so far. The confusion will probably get worse before it gets better. A lot of important pieces just are not ready to fall into place. In all the turmoil, it might be tempting to let routine things slide, but taking good care of daily chores might be the best way to maintain sanity and stay on course.


ARIES ~ Organize. It will be largely up to you to bring people together for sharing and relevant planning or just for a little pep talk. Your instincts about what needs doing are on target. It’s partly about harnessing potentially unruly energy in your community and work environments. It’s partly about creating and updating partnerships and other connections to insure your continued prosperity. You have the needed drive. Recent breakthroughs in psychological and spiritual areas will serve you well now and later this year when a new cycle of growth regains momentum.

TAURUS ~ Keep it simple. Many are getting caught up in the confusion and excitement of ongoing changes on the job. Not you, though. That’ s partly because you don’t need the excitement. Fatigue is an issue. It’s partly because you know the bottom line is always the same. It takes discipline and hard work to make any changes succeed. Sidestep complications and distractions. Do what’s necessary and help others do the same. Avoid unnecessary stress. You have bigger issues on your mind and don’t need extra work-related burdens weighing on you.

GEMINI ~ Don’t get carried away. Everything Gemini is about is foregrounded now. Your skills are very much in demand. You could find yourself alternately in the spot light and on the spot. It will be hard to keep your bearings. It will also be hard to avoid stress and get enough rest. Combined with lingering moodiness and an undercurrent of worry, all of this could drive you into escapist ‘adventures’. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed and/or swept in directions best avoided. Romantic and intimate encounters will multiply later in October.

CANCER ~ Complicated negotiations. Things are in flux. You and just about all the people who matter most to you, personally, professionally and economically, must engage in important and urgent negotiations. But neither you nor any of these people are quite ready for negotiations. None of you has a very clear idea of where you stand, or what your negotiating position should be. The planets advise you consider the views of others carefully. Their instincts about what the future holds are likely to be more accurate than yours in some important ways.

LEO ~ Rough and tumble. You might want to hide and brood. The struggle for existence has been bruising lately and the world is getting you down in general. But you must keep up a cheerful front. You must work hard this month to establish your place in a turbulent workplace full of pushy, competitive and, well, irresponsible and inexperienced co-workers. You must somehow stay on top of things and forge a productive partnership with this motley crew. It’s no time to show weakness or crankiness. Your financial future depends heavily upon it.

VIRGO ~ Impose order. Any lingering deadlocks will ease somewhat during October. But that will unleash changes that cause some turmoil at home, at work and in your social circles. The outer turmoil will be reflected inwardly as your moods, your romantic urges and your ambition intensify. Things will be even more challenging because your skills are in high demand. Bring your absolute best thinking and highest ideals into play and embrace self-discipline to avert drama and keep things on track. Much will depend on your ability to maintain a clear mind.

LIBRA ~ Stimulus-response. Things are in flux. Anything you set in motion could turn into more than anybody wants to handle. Consider your increasing need for extra quiet and rest. Be honest and realistic about what you can do. Then decide how much you want to stir things up. Let your enhanced charisma compensate for fatigue and increased downtime. Despite demands for change and progress all around, you should decide what your needs are and what you can realistically contribute. Your enhanced ability to impose order and calm on situations will surprise you.

SCORPIO ~ Forward movement. A stalemate in neighborhood or community affairs will break, giving way to a flurry of activity. But this could lead to further confusion and frustration. Things can’t go back to the way they were, but not all the new pieces are ready to fall into place. It’s clear, though, that you are well-suited to help support morale and to keep things moving in the right direction. Take special care to smooth rough edges and brighten the darker corners of people’s moods. This will be a continuing role.

SAGITTARIUS ~ Balance. Forward movement in financial and work-related areas is putting exceptional demands on you. It’s also creating disruptive tensions, especially in important relationships. These relationships have deep and stubborn roots, though, and are unlikely to give ground easily. To maintain stability and security in your life, you’ll have to find a balance between the requirements of your job, your need for financial freedom and the demands of important relationships. Efforts to find this balance will go on for some time. Meanwhile, the planets are being strongly protective of your interests.

CAPRICORN ~ Complicated maneuvers. The delays and obstacles that have dogged your efforts are slowly giving way. However, it will be some time before you achieve full forward motion. Also, those affected by these decisions will be scrambling to cover their bases, adding further confusion and uncertainty. The stars underline the importance of nurturing alliances at work and with colleagues and interested parties at a distance. For financial reasons, you can’t afford not to form such alliances. Negotiations could be complex and delicate. However, the planets are being supportive of these efforts.

AQUARIUS ~ Spadework. Stalemate will give way to forward movement, sort of. This cycle is a reality check for Aquarians. The emphasis is on conditions on the ground vs. your expectations. The planets are aligned to help you clarify your plans and revise your expectations for the future. They will also help you bring expectations into line with reality. Making your dreams a reality might turn out to be a tougher job and take more time than you think. However, the planets are providing the energy and motivation to succeed.

PISCES ~ Retrospective. It’s clear that the future will be a more complicated place than you thought. The path is not too clearly marked and obstacles are tougher than you expected. One way to help yourself move forward is to look back, a little. To make your plans for the future a reality, you’ll need to unlearn a few old habits and replace them with new ones, of course. You’ll also have to just let go of attitudes and issues that are holding you back. The planets will strongly support this effort.
