Today's Horoscope This week This month
Virgo horoscope for October 2021
Moving into the new month with the Sun, Mercury and Mars in your income sector was always going to make this one of the most potentially lucrative months of the year but both internally and externally this has everything going for it. Internally the Sun, Mercury and Mars make quite a team and not just because of their individual strengths. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options until leaving on 23rd October, you have access to Mercury's smart head for money all month while until leaving on 31st October Mars will continue to wage war on glass ceilings, roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined, as he urges you to fight for what you deserve.
However, with Mercury in retrograde motion until 19th October but Mars continuing to drive things forward, this is giving you access to both new and untapped income potential. Yet externally there is even more to get excited about. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your income sector but rarely is there any planetary activity in either of your two professional houses at the time. This year you not only have the two most powerful planets in the solar system in your work sector but Saturn's direct turn on 11th October and Jupiter's on 18th October is giving work and job matters the green light in time to capitalise on income potential.
Meanwhile, having left your income sector last month, Venus begins the month in your communication sector, where she is working with Neptune in your relationship sector to get the communication lines open. When the Sun returns on 23rd October and Mars on 31st October their focus will be on opening the communication lines across the board but as the planet of love, Venus is more focused on giving your heart and your relationships a voice. It is on 8th October that Venus will shift her focus onto home and family matters and you might even find a desire to beautify or change things up on the home front.
Love & RomanceThere is a lot to be excited about on both the romantic and relationship fronts this month though in a subtle way that is more indirect than direct but at the same time a sign of things to come. In his last full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, Neptune is slowing down and from the outside, there are not a lot of changes on the relationship front itself. What is changing is the conditions impacting your relationships. With no more planetary activity in Virgo, missing are the challenges and any relationship tension of recent months. In its place there is growing communication support.
While having planetary activity in your communication sector will make it easier to keep the communication lines open, this will also put them at a friendly aspect. That was the case when Venus and Neptune moved into a friendly aspect at the end of last month, allowing you to begin the month better able to give your heart, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Venus will leave your communication sector on 8th October and while the Sun won't return until 23rd October and Mars until 31st October, the asteroid Vesta will be here, quietly keeping the communication lines open.
Meanwhile, while Pluto's direct turn in your romantic sector on 7th October will shift your heart's focus from the past and onto the future, what isn't expected is the sense of anticipation that will come with this. With the Sun not returning to your romantic sector until just before Christmas each year, Pluto's direct turn means usually means it is months before any new romantic developments arrive. Instead, with Venus not only returning early next month but the planet of love then not leaving until March 2022, ahead are some of the most romantically charged months in a very long time.
Business & CareerEven though there might not be a lot of movement or change on the job or career fronts there is a lot of depth and behind the scenes, preparations are underway for a major turnaround. This is something that is happening in slow motion and it might be that it is not until months later that you look back at this time and see it as the point when everything started to change. Even without that change or turnaround this still has the potential to be a very good month across the income, work and career fronts. There is an abundance of planetary activity on the income front and the right planetary activity on the job and career fronts to support this.
The reason why there might be a lack of movement is that you not only start the month with Jupiter and Saturn still in retrograde motion in your work sector but with both slowing down to a point where they are barely moving. At the same time while she is in direct motion in your career sector, even the dwarf planet Ceres is slowing down though for a different reason. Two months into her first visit in four years and of a mission to update your professional needs and priorities, Ceres is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on 9th October that will keep her here for the rest of the year.
This comes at the same time that Jupiter and Saturn are slowing down ahead of direct turns that will see them come out of hibernation. It is Saturn's direct turn on 11th October and Jupiter's on 18th October that will take the brakes off work and job matters. While it will take a while for both to build up speed, with Jupiter leaving in December and then not returning for another 12 years, the planet of luck and expansion won't want to dawdle for long. This is the point where the pace will begin to increase, slowly at first and then exponentially faster as the days and weeks pass. The Moon's return to your work sector from 14th October to 16th October will ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters in the middle of that transition phase.
MoneyWith the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your income sector the focus is always on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, this year this has a much longer shadow, due in part to Venus' early return, Mercury's retrograde turn last month and the fact that Mars is making his first visit to your income sector in two years. Venus has already been and gone by the time you move into the new month but it was the planet of money's return in August that got things off to an early start while leaving the planets following in her footsteps something to work with.
While the Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options until leaving on 23rd August, until he leaves on 31st October Mars' war against glass ceilings, roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined, as he urges you to fight for what you deserve will continue. It was Mercury's retrograde turn late last month that saw his smart head for money pivot towards focusing more on the rear view mirror. Until turning direct on 19th October, Mercury will be more focused on untapped income potential while acting as a brake to Mars' hot headed enthusiasm and tendency towards impulsiveness.
What makes this month one of the most potentially lucrative months of the year is not just the amount of planetary activity on the income front but the support that is coming from planets on the job and career fronts. This will be especially evident when the Moon moves through your income sector from 6th October to 8th October. As well as aligning with the Sun to create a New Moon here on 7th October and with Mercury and Mars as it moves through, the Moon will form a friendly aspect to planets on the job and career fronts. In what should be a good month across the income, work and career fronts, this could have a galvanising impact.
